Some bombs planted by RINO presidents don't explode for nearly a decade.

Bush just keeps looking worse and worse.

Roberts has been a consistent conservative vote until now. He has not been like Souter. Something other than Roberts being a stealth liberal is going on.

The SCOTUS can’t be relied on to strike down every idiotic law your idiotic Congressman votes aye on.

Today, EVERY law passed is an idiotic law.

Historically, SCOTUS has ruled exactly opposite of prior rulings within a few decades.

Slavery was upheld until shortly before the Civil War.

The SCOTUS Justices are only people and people are subject to politics.

The lifetime appointment is the only thing the framers could do to mitigate the political tendency as much as possible - which is not too much.

The liberal Justices find a legal rationalization for their political views. They never give in to a conservative view in their opinions.

The conservative Justices give in to the liberal view once in a while in their opinions.

So, over time, populism tends to gain ground.

Populism is the biggest problem in a representative government, since by definition it is designed to do the will of the people it governs, but since politicians must compete for elective office they tend to overdo it to gain votes. This means government over time starts to become corrupt in terms of spending taxpayer money, tends to ask less and less of large voting blocks whilst giving them more and more.

Good people need to run for Congress, real people. That is, non-political people who just want to do their duty for a few years and then get out.

Things won’t dramatically change until “real people” in Congress are the majority.

All the raiding of the Treasury for votes needs to stop, the Congressional support of immorality needs to stop, government borrowing needs to stop.

All one can do with the current Congress is call one’s Congressman and nicely complain. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Send emails to their staff. Be nice. Use polite language. Say nothing mean or bad in any way. But kindly and politely express your thoughts. If you’re outraged, let them know.

IMHO.

The problem with lawyers is they think that their contorted, freakin’ word-smithery absolves them of bad freakin’ lawyerin’!

generally, IIRC, most conservatives were happy with Roberts....

in retrospect, he was really pretty much a nothing...no distinction...a second rate choice which is why he got thru the hearings and onto the court...the rats knew they had a man who would twist the constitution anyway required...

this is the secret about "liberalism"...it basically requires that there be no norm, no rule of law...

the TLA love this....they can argue any nonsensical opinion and find a way to make it legal/constitutional...

Nothing will convince me that Roberts wasn't intimidated, blackmailed and coerced.

Nothing will deter me from believing that Kagan was the agent who delivered the intimidation.

And Leahey was the chief perpetrator.

Bush did not look good before he was elected. If you knew his grandfather, you knew the Bush family. Granddad help fund Hitler.

Roberts has turned out to be a dud. He deserves no respect for that ruling as far as I am concerned - literally rewriting legislation to try to make it constitutional.

However...regardless of that - the fact still remains that law should never have been passed to begin with for it to come to before Roberts to rule on...and the Democrats must be held accountable for this in the fall - at all levels.
