Justice... Justice... JUSTICE

May God have mercy on his soul... but he got what he deserved. As will we all in due course.

The irony is that Dr. George Tiller was murdered at his church. Imagine that! A man who so callously murdered viable children in the womb is himself murdered in the womb of earthly faith.

God have mercy on his soul, but it is my belief he is burning in hell as I speak...

Let's wait now and see if Obama has anything public to say about Dr. Tiller; how great a man he was, or some such. Let's see the cut of Obama's jib on this... we've seen it numerous times already but how about an encore?

I don't care how this post makes me look to anyone reading this. The man was a murderer... he lived by the sword, and died by the sword. Justice is served.

I feel pity for his family. I DO wish he had seen the evilness of his profession. I DO wish he had publicly repented and publicly sought other avenues to serve pregnant women thereby demonstrating his repentance. But he didn't. How can I know this? He was murdered in church. And no genuine Christian could, with clean and honest conscience, perform an abortion, let alone late-term and partial birth abortion. His faith was a sham. And he's paying for it right this minute.

The man who murdered Dr. Tiller is himself a murderer, and he is sadly mistaken if he thinks God approves of his actions. God does not approve. This man took away from Dr. Tiller any hope of ever seeing the truth, coming to repentance, and accepting Christ as his savior. Now Dr. Tiller is burning in hell. He deserves his punishment, but he was robbed of any opportunity to repent. Dr. Tiller's blood will be required at the hand his murderer.

I do not advocate murder. I do not trumpet joyfully at Dr. George Tiller's murder. That being said, I know some will nonetheless condemn me for this post, as would Shannyn Moore, of the Huffington Post who wrote the following:

Christian Fundamentalist Terrorism

"Christian Fundamentalist Terrorism. It's shocking to write. But it's time to start calling it what it is." "...The "war on terror" needs to include domestic terrorists."

Get ready Christians. You are about to see an increase in persecution of your faith in this country.

Speed of Descent, Part 3

>> Wednesday, May 27, 2009

"I don't believe we should bend the Constitution under any circumstances. It says what it says. We should do honor to it." -Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, in a 1997 U.S. Court of Appeals nomination hearing

Those words were above the headline of this morning's Daily Herald, which said "Reaching for History", which apparently is more important that reaching for excellence. The early reports are that Sonia Sotomayor has the "empathy" Obama believes is so important in a Supreme Court judge. In addition, she has what it takes because of her life experience, that she is emblematic of the American dream, as if Clarence Thomas isn't. This Thomas Sowell piece explains perfectly the problem with this reasoning. Isn't a nominee's grasp of law all that really matters? There are a couple of examples of her past performance going around, and we're likely to hear more. It will be interesting to see how it all matches up with the quote that leads off this post.

I've never heard of this woman. Neither had Obama. She may be the best thing since sliced bread, but it's looking like her ethnicity (an sense of empathy) is what is driving this selection and not the quality of her work, of which I've seen little that inspires. I hope that our senators dig deeply into her job performance to see if she's truly worthy of the position. The quote at the top ain't enough and if confirmed, she'll be helping or hurting our country for a long time.

Defining Definitions Down...

Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution? - Groucho Marx

You know, I can remember a time when a rainbow was the symbol of God's promise to Noah that He would never again destroy the World due to Man's wickedness by means of a flood.

Now it seems to be a symbol that whoever owns this car/tee-shirt/lunchbox is a homosexual, and everyone else has to be notified.

I also can remember when you could say that someone was a "gay old fella" without alluding to the probability that he didn't really understand basic biology.

But over the last couple of decades, we have re-defined the word "gay", capitalized it, made a noun out of it, and created a whole new subject that everyone is now required to explain to their children, and usually way sooner than they would like to.

And then there's this...

Marriage: The social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc...

Has now become: A relationship in which two people have pledged themselves to each other in the manner of a husband and wife, without legal sanction (for now): trial marriage; homosexual marriage.

But the people of California (of all places) voted to put the brakes on the redefinition of a word which has meant the same thing since the dawn of Human Society.

From the San Francisco Gate...

California voters legally outlawed same-sex marriage when they approved Proposition 8 in November, but the constitutional amendment did not dissolve the unions of 18,000 gay and lesbian couples who wed before the measure took effect, the state Supreme Court ruled today.

Prop. 8 undid that ruling by reinstating the definition of marriage that the court had struck down, this time as an amendment to the state Constitution. The author of last year's 4-3 decision, Chief Justice Ronald George, said today that the voters were within their rights to do so...

In dissent, Justice Carlos Moreno, who joined the majority in last year's decision, said today's ruling accepted the separate-but-equal treatment for gays and lesbians that the 2008 ruling rejected."Granting same-sex couples all of the rights enjoyed by opposite-sex couples, except the right to call their officially recognized and protected family relationship a marriage, still denies them equal treatment," Moreno said.

Actually, it doesn't, because, unless I've missed something here, a gay man has exactly the same right to marry any woman he wants as a straight man does.

If the gay person chooses not to marry someone of the opposite sex, and instead chooses an alternate lifestyle with alternate rules and alternate benefits and alternate challenges, then that is their choice.

In California, anyway.

For better or for worse, the people of California have spoken. The losers - I mean, the minority opinion raised their challenge, and the Court, for once, declined this particular opportunity to play an activist role, and instead just did their job, which was, to determine whether or not the people had made their statement through proper and legal channels.

Which they did.

So, for now, the word "Marriage" still means what it has always meant.

Just like the words "Democracy", and "Freedom".

At least where this issue is concerned.

At least in California.

Sweet Nothings Failing

As this posting at AmericanThinker's blog points out, it isn't looking much like there's a whole lot of swooning on the part of the dangerous nations of the world. Iran and N. Korea don't seem to be either enthralled or intimidated by the thought of an Obama led United States of America. As he made it abundantly clear during his recent "Everything is Our Fault" Tour, we are but chumps to be ignored, a nation of no consequence, a bloviator who is all talk and no action.

I've often referred to Obama as a pretender. He's pretending he has a better way and so far, his make-believe has done pretty much nothing on any front. This front is the most dangerous for all. The notion that he's just going to chit-chat his way to a world of peace, after insisting he'll disarm, after insisting that he'll close Gitmo, after insisting that we'll never "torture", has led to results pretty much predicted by the right wing.

Now, to be fair, Barry hasn't been play-acting for very long. It's only been four months, so it would be ridiculous to imagine that the two remaining nations of the Axis of Evil just got started with their respective programs. But as the linked piece points out, it's pretty bold the manner in which they showed their stuff. They each are engaging in int'l "Whaddaya gonna do about it?". We know the answer to that question. Barry will do nothing of any impact.

Imagine. Some people think we are safer now that Barry is in the House.

Obama's First Step Toward Communism

>> Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Now, Barack Hussein Obama has announced his plans to take over the auto industry. His plan is overt Socialism. In fact, it is the definition of Socialism.

According to a Reuters story, "General Motors Corp's (GM.N) plan for a bankruptcy filing involves a quick sale of the company's healthy assets to a new company initially owned by the U.S. government."

Do you get that? Owned by the U.S. Government!

The definition of Socialism, according to the dictionary, is "a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole."

It goes on to say, "(in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles".

If any of my readers don't know why Socialism is undesirable, go back and read my History of Communism.

Normally, news articles quoting anonymous sources are suspect in my opinion, so I will qualify my remarks with this statement:

If this story is accurate, Obama is implementing his nefarious plan to socialize the United States before our eyes. He needs to be stopped.

Yes, it's true that the rest of the article points out that the ownership of GM by the U.S. Government is only temporary, but really, who is Obama kidding?

Anyone who thinks the Government, under Obama will eventually relinquish control of GM back to private ownership is delusional.

This is only the beginning of Obama's plan to change The United Sates of America into the United Socialist States of America.

There will be more. Much more.

And remember. I warned you.

Why Obama Flipped

>> Thursday, May 14, 2009

Recently, Barack Hussein Obama reversed his earlier decision to release some photos to the press. The photos reportedly have images that show some rather harsh interrogation techniques being performed on terrorist detainees.

And now the pundits on all sides are speculating on why.

Well, not all the pundits. The ones who follow Obama religiously and think he can do no wrong aren't questioning his motives.

Some Conservative commentators have decided, grudgingly, that he made the right decision this time. Even Hannity thinks Obama did the right thing.

Why? Obviously, many feel the release of the photos could somehow endanger the lives of our troops in the field, or possibly even innocent civilians.

On a certain level, I understand the concern. There has indeed been evidence that releasing photos of inhumane treatment (Abu Ghraib) in the past emboldened the enemy and helped provoke an escalation of attacks. If that is really Obama's concern, I could get behind him on that, as well.

But I think the pundits are leaving out one very important detail.

Obama never does anything that is good for anyone other than himself.

In order to reach this hypothesis, we need to try to think the way Obama thinks.

Remember, Obama is a pathological narcissist. As we have seen repeatedly, Obama does nothing that isn't politically expedient to advance his own personal interests.

So. I am thinking there must be something in those photographs that will either advance or derail Obama's train. And, I also think it must be something that is, in effect, borderline, or else his decision to release or not to release would be much easier.

So lets all speculate about what the photos depict, shall we?

Thinking like Obama, I'm thinking the first impression, to Obama, must have been that the pictures show acts of torture. I can just see him rubbing his hands together in delight, thinking he has finally found proof of what his administration and his adoring fans in the media have been saying all along. What better way to advance his agenda of appeasing the terrorist and undermining America's security than finding and producing evidence of morally repugnant interrogation techniques, that he can spin as torture?

Obama, having been born into privilege, and never having to endure any discomfort his entire life, would no doubt look at images of a detainee being restrained, pushed against a soft wall, confronted by a caterpillar, or similarly innocuously discomforted, and assume (at first, not realizing those interrogation techniques are actually quite mild) they constitute torture.

But then, after the media frenzy regarding what the photos might contain, and speculation from all sides on what actually constitutes torture, Obama had another look.

Now, looking at them in a much more reasonable light, Obama sees there is nothing in the photos that would merit concern. The photos indicate nothing that could be construed as torture, except by the most rabid peace-at-all-cost zealots.

This could be a devastating setback to Obama's lofty aspirations. How could he continue to demonize the Conservatives when the photos prove we have been correct (and the Liberals wrong) all the time?

So, he changes his mind and decides not to release the photos.

Now the inexplicable has happened, and probably quite by accident. Even his opponents are praising him for finally making a prudent decision.

When you hear pundits praising this decision, Don't be fooled. Sometimes we the people are smarter than the experts.

Morning Dose of "Cynicism"

>> Tuesday, May 12, 2009

This should scare the tar out of you... the government will have to borrow nearly 50 cents for every dollar it spends this year.

Borrowing implies that it will one day be paid back. With interest. Actually, it has to be paid off. Much of that debt is owned by foreign governments. That debt will have to be repaid. Some of the debt is held by Americans, and the government can easily just ignore that. After all, the government owns us. We work at the pleasure and for the pleasure of the political class. Whatever wealth we produce, they own. In their infinite wisdom they'll allow you to keep just enough of your wealth to encourage you to keep working so that you can keep funding them. It will be the same for your children and your grandchildren. There's a huge multi-trillion debt to be paid... thank goodness the government has the assets to cover that debt. Your children.

And from a George Will piece...

In "Democracy in America," Alexis de Tocqueville anticipated people being governed by "an immense, tutelary power" determined to take "sole charge of assuring their enjoyment and of watching over their fate." It would be a power "absolute, attentive to detail, regular, provident and gentle," aiming for our happiness but wanting "to be the only agent and the sole arbiter of that happiness." It would, Tocqueville said, provide people security, anticipate their needs, direct their industries and divide their inheritances. It would envelop society in "a network of petty regulations -- complicated, minute and uniform." But softly: "It does not break wills; it softens them, bends them, and directs them" until people resemble "a herd of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."


By the way, George Will's column, Upside-Down Economy, is a good, if disheartening, read.

On The Stupidity Of Hate Crimes Legislation

This right here is an excellent article dealing with the ludicrous and unConstitutional notion of hate crimes laws. But as good as the article is, author James Simpson includes a link to an even better one by Jerry Kane, that shows how such laws turn out in practice. Now I can accept that those who support such laws, like our own Dan Trabue, have the best of intentions. But the case studies in the Kane piece illustrate the hell that will be paved by those intentions. What I can't accept is that anyone would ever believe that the terrible manifestations highlighted in the Kane article won't happen here, especially in light of the fact that we're already seeing examples of it to varying degrees throughout the nation.

I encourage everyone to contact your representatives on all levels of gov't to fight against these unConstitutional proposals whenever they rear their extremely ugly heads. We don't need them. It's unAmerican.

Speed of Descent, Part 2

>> Friday, May 8, 2009

Barry Obumble has already shown some level of contempt for the Constitution, as demonstrated in audio clips from an interview on Chicago radio during his tenure as an Illinois state senator. Showing remarkable consistency, he also has expressed a poor understanding of the role of a Supreme Court Justice by proclaiming his nominees would possess "empathy" for certain groups of people. Thomas Sowell, though lacking the creds that impress sophisticated intellectuals like Geoffrey, has three spot on essays that explore the subject of the SCOTUS. Here are the first, the second, and the third.

These fine pieces have provoked a slight shift in my thinking regarding the impact of an Obama nominee being confirmed, particularly as regards the speed of American Descent as a result of such a confirmation. There is a push for Barry to select a homosexual for the bench. Should that happen, we'll see the same results as we did with homosexual activists within the APA voting as to whether homosexuality should remain on the list of mental illnesses. In other words, we'll see less objectivity if "empathy" is a requirement. This is totally contrary to the quality a Supreme Court Justice is to have. A Justice is to be without regard for the litigants of a case and judge merely on which argument more closely aligns with a strict and objective understanding of the US Constitution. That is, cold, blind justice for all.

Republicans, and any thoughtful and objective Democrats, entrusted with the task of vetting SCOTUS nominees, need to grill untill well done. If they conduct their interviews properly, the responses of the nominees will convict them sufficiently to override the imbalance of libs to conservatives, and their nominations will be pulled or they will decline the invitation themselves. Perhaps even enough rubber stampers will be convinced to vote against confirmation. We can only hope, otherwise the stain of this administration may plague us for many years to come.

UPDATE: Here's a fourth column by Sowell on the topic. This one speaks to a likely end game.

More Harsh Rhetoric -- But Nonetheless True

>> Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Also from Boortz:

Obama Wants To Change The Tax Code
Neil Boortz, May 5, 2009

Excerpts...

Obama says, "If financial institutions won't cooperate with us, we will assume that they are sheltering money in tax havens and act accordingly." ...don't we have a long and valued tradition whereby the government assumes innocence until guilt is proven? Guilty until proven innocent...

[...]

Here's your bottom line. There is somewhere between $10 and $13 trillion dollars of American wealth that have been sent overseas where those dollars can be free to work and produce wealth in places where tax treatment is more favorable. These dollars are fleeing tax tyranny and looking for freedom, much like people in East Berlin tried to get over that wall to find freedom in the west. The East German communists shot those people down in cold blood. Obama wants to do the same to your money. He's and his Democrat pals are erecting an economic Berlin Wall to keep your money from escaping their tyranny.


Ouch. 'An economic Berlin Wall... keeping our money from escaping their tyranny.' Double ouch! What was it Obama recently said? Something to the effect that in the future he envisions Wall Street would no longer be the dominant player in the American economy? Well, pray tell, what or who will in Obama's future love paradise? The federal government, backed by the unconstitutional and oppressive Internal Revenue Service.

Typical democrat, president Obama. Using the IRS to further his political agenda and punish those deemed deserving of his political ire.

To be fair, EVERY president seeks to change the tax code... it's what we come to see, with every new occupant in the Oval Office, as "change we can believe in." But it's his vindictive attitude toward businesses that LEGALLY choose to do business in other countries that make him look the despot many believe he is. Since when has it ever been illegal to do business outside the United States? We levy THE MOST PUNISHING taxes on corporations in the world. Even CHINA has lower corporate tax rates on businesses...

It may come as a surprise that US companies pay the highest taxes in the world. Yes, you read that right. American businesses, large and small and across all industries pay from 35% to 41.6% of their income in combined state and federal taxes. The 41.6% maximum rate is scheduled to rise to 46.2% in 2010 when President Obama's promised tax increases are implemented. Compare that to socialist France where companies pay only 34.4% in taxes, to China where the rate is 25%, or Russia which levies a mere 24%. Corporations in Ireland, Europe's fastest growing economy for the last 18 years, pay just 12.5% in taxes.

Because of its dual taxation system, US businesses and individuals are required to pay both state and federal taxes on their income. When combined both these taxes range from a minimum of 35% in states like Nevada, South Dakota, and Wyoming that do not tax business income, to a maximum of 41.6% in Iowa, the state with the highest corporate tax rate of 12%.

So Obama wants to intimidate corporations into choosing to pay taxes at US rates, OR he will assume the worst of them and take it anyway. What a great guy this Obama character is turning out to be.

This is a montage of Charlie Rose and Brokaw trying to figure out who Obama is.

ROSE: I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.
BROKAW: No, I don't, either.
ROSE: I don't know how he really sees where China is.
BROKAW: We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.
ROSE: I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?
BROKAW: Yeah, it's an interesting question.
ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches.
BROKAW: Two of them! I don't know what books he's read.
ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?
BROKAW: There's a lot about him we don't know.

I think they're beginning to "know" something about the man now. Problem is, most of the chattering class are actively covering for him.

The Things You Don’t Read About Barack Obama
--Andrew W. Smith, May 2, 2009

...Why should these points, and many more like them, have to be made by some obscure contributor to The Chronicle Herald’s opinion pages?

Fox News Channel is the butt of jokes and the target of attacks like no other media outlet in the English-speaking world, not least by people who fancy themselves the guardians of a free press. But Fox News is today the lone television news service in the English-speaking world capable of serious skepticism and scrutiny of the sitting president and the Congress of the United States.

Fox News is also the second most-watched channel in all American cable television. It long ago became by far the most-watched cable news channel; more Americans watched Fox News than CNN and MSNBC combined in every time slot from 6 a.m. to midnight in April. Now, while The New York Times is $1.3 billion in debt, Fox has expanded its operations with a business channel and a juggernaut Internet presence.

There’s a lesson there, though Fox News will be just as well pleased if the impeccably "mainstream" news business remains clueless about it.

The people need a Fourth Estate, not yet another adulator of Barack Obama, yet another smearer of Sarah Palin, yet another patrician editor to keep out anything disagreeable to progressive sensibilities, yet another laptop-and-latte journalism-schooler to spit on everything pre-dating 1968. And they wonder why the news business has come on hard times.


For myself, what Obama HAS managed to accomplish is far more frightening that any future terrorist attack because, depending on your perspective, Barack Obama is either the greatest terrorist against the very liberties the Constitution of the United States once guaranteed every man, woman, and child, or the savior of every man, woman, and child in America. There really is no middle-ground to speak of here, at least none that the Media are reporting.

Consider how he is screwing investors in the failing auto industry in Detroit; preferring the rights of unsecured debt-holders to those of SECURED debt-holders.

Obama is poised to literally take over everything he chooses. Compare what he is doing to secured debt-holders to what will happen to Social Security in due course; to those of us who have paid in all our lives and could very likely see nothing in return. The debt owed us by the Federal Government is unsecured-- NOT guaranteed.

Take a look at the fine print on your next Social Security Statement, the net effect of which is, the government can cut your benefits by any amount, at any time, for any reason or no reason at all, and you have no legal recourse. True. Just try suing the federal government over money they say they owe you, especially since congress can at any time pass legislation that will reduce, delay, or eliminate benefits.

Now Don Obama is strong-arming the auto industry, specifically it's investors. The banks have loaned money... secured loans. Money owed to union pensions and retired workers are unsecured; contingent on robust sales and continued growth. But Obama has given the Unions and workers the preeminence, telling holders of secured loans to take a hike.

The unions have managed to destroy the industry that fed them, now they're in charge. Fine. Let's see them run Chrysler and GM better than their predecessors.

This could all be a back door effort to make Government the only resource any struggling company has. With banks unwilling to offer even secured loans for fear the government will wipe away their investments, government will be the only daddy to go to when the wallet is slim.

This is the change we were promised? Where is the Hope?

President Obama's broadside against bankers yesterday illustrates better than any argument ever could that bankruptcy court, and not the political arena, is where Chrysler belongs. Yesterday's filing isn't the end of the U.S. auto industry, or even necessarily of Chrysler, and it offers the best chance to protect all parties under the rule of law.

"I don't stand with those who held out when everyone else is making sacrifices," Mr. Obama nonetheless declared, blaming what he called "a small group of speculators" for the car maker's Chapter 11 filing. To hear the President tell it, you'd never know that Chrysler had borrowed, and since frittered away, the $6.9 billion that it owes to those "speculators." The Administration had only offered $2 billion to those secured creditors as part of its proposed restructuring for the car maker. So it's hardly a surprise that many lenders would rather take their chances in bankruptcy court.


Speculators? Offering a secured loan is speculation? Obama wants these lenders to sacrifice... he wants everyone to sacrifice, including you and me. But if it is forced, it is not sacrifice. It is authoritarianism.




..::Update::.. Tuesday, May 5

Taken whole from Boortz.com...

Yesterday I gave you a Boortz economic lesson in an attempt to explain what the Barack Obama administration is trying to pull in this Chrysler bankruptcy. The latest on this story ... Thomas Lauria, a lawyer for top creditors, has officially filed a motion to stop the Chrysler bankruptcy. Lauria claims that the Obama administration has violated the Constitution by trying to devalue the senior creditors' holdings on behalf of junior creditors. What does Lauria base this on? Something called the 5th Amendment. Maybe you have heard of it. Just in case, here is a little reminder:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

But wait ... as they say ... there's more! Lauria, who represents the group referred to as the non-TARP lenders, is going to ask that the bankruptcy court keep the names of his client confidential. Why would that be? Because they have been receiving threats. You can bet that some of the threats are coming from union members. These union goons like the idea of their pension debts being given priority to Chrysler's secured lenders, and I think we all know what union goons do when something happens they don't like. There was a time not too long ago when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms noted that the number one illegal use of explosives in the United States came at the hands of union members engaged in work actions.

But there's another group threatening the secured non-TARP creditors. That would be the White House. Lauria and others have claimed that people within the Obama administration have made it clear that if any of these secured lenders get in the way of Obama's gift to the unions the White House will work to destroy their reputation. Now the White House denies this. What would you expect? But listen to the language ... Obama has attacked these people in public as being "vultures" and has painted them as evil capitalists who don't want to stand by the families of Chrysler workers. If he'll do this in public, what do you think his attack dogs will do in private?

Even if you think Obama hung the moon; even if you're now calling him the best president this country ever had; you just have to recognize the danger in the precedent that's been set here. The United Auto Workers are getting priority for their unsecured Chrysler debt simply because they are political[ly] powerful. Now just how is that going to work out for us in the future? Do you want to live in a financial world where lenders base lending decision in part on the political prominence of the borrower?

Giving unsecured creditors priority over secured lenders in bankruptcy proceedings... now that's change you can believe in.


From where I sit, I can't see Obama wearing a swastika armband, nor do I believe his bent lies in that direction. But neither can I see how what he is trying to do is morally right or legal. Barack Obama is attempting to ride roughshod over the constitution to reshape American life and commerce into his own ideological image, circumventing the constitution and congress in the process. Were this Bush [and some of you will say he did as much if not more] the press and congress would be ready to burn the man at the stake. But Barack Obama acts like a Chicago thug, and everyone smiles? Why? Are they afraid he'll send Rohm Emmanuel to break their legs?

For a so-called constitutional lawyer, Barack Obama plays pretty loose with the document he swore to PRESERVE and DEFEND.

What's to keep the next administration from siccing its new attorney general on HIS administration's lawyers for gross and criminal breach of constitutionality. After all, Barack has set the precedent for attacking the previous administration with criminal investigations.

Speed Of Descent

>> Friday, May 1, 2009

Justice Souter has announced he will retire at the end of the current Supreme Court session. He allowed that he'd serve until his replacement is confirmed. This doesn't change the balance of conservative justices to stupid justices, so the speed of American Descent might not change, but it's certainly not going to slow. Likely, Obumble will nominate a few chuckleheads that see things in the Constitution that don't exist, or one that thinks we need to look to Europe to decide what's what. (Of course those types only look to those who think as they do. They don't waste time with foreigners who disagree.) Placed against the news of the Spector defection, along with the very real and frightening possibility of Stu Smalley winning the Minnesota senatorial race, Souter's departure means that the Obamalamadingdong's picks will sail through with the voices of reason being disgregarded again.

Who ends up on the Supreme Court was one of my most major concerns before last November. Had we had a good conservative that charged up the voters, retiring justices could've been replaced with good conservatives who understand the Constitution and the job of being on the Court. But unless one of the smart justices die or something, we're only really looking at lib justices retiring in the near future, so the balance won't change. It's just too bad they'll be replaced with other idiots.

Then again, wasn't it Reagan that picked a guy that turned out to be the opposite of what he thought? Might happen for Barry.

That's it. Think positively.
