Rarely do I agree with Justice Scalia, but he was absolutely right in his dissenting opinion on the DNA case. Justice Breyer wrongly compared it to fingerprints and photos, which are routinely taken when you get arrested. The difference is that there is no large-scale database/computer program that can search blocks of photos and fingerprints wholesale. The taking of DNA from people simply arrested (not charged) is a violation of the fourth amendment.

Looks like Monsanto will win again... Justice Stephen Breyer said federal law prevents people from making copies of patented inventions. "And that is what he did," Justice Breyer said of Mr. Bowman. Chief Justice John Roberts suggested companies wouldn't spend money to develop such technologies if others could just copy the inventions without paying for them. Justice Elena Kagan voiced similar concerns. A decision is expected by the end of June.

One of the most important and substantial things a President does is appoint Supreme Court Justices to their lifetime seats/terms. Peruse this info below and think about that when you vote. (Thanks Lisa Ferrell) Lisa Ferrell If you have hesitation on voting for Mitt Romney, keep these things in mind: 1. Justice Scalia just turned 78 2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year 3. Justice Breyer was 76 in August 4. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago - and is reportedly quite ill. 5. Justice Stephens has already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be re-elected. The next president could appoint as many as 5 new Justices over the next four years. This election is about much more than the ObamaCare Tax. Whomever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come. If you don't think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mit ...

To: Young Democrats (18 - 29) 10/20/12 We have recently seen on TV that young voters (18-29 years old) prefer President Obama by a wide margin (70% support in Florida). However we also learn that motivation to get out and vote is much lower than in 2008. Your organization needs to push strongly on getting out the vote by providing young people reasons to vote. For those who think that President Obama has not done a good enough job, ask them to follow the presentation at: . Click on Download and then open. Several slides have voice narrative. You may have to wait 3 or 4 seconds for the voice to start. (FYI the material for this presentation was put together by an old white male, the PP presentation and voice was done by a bright young Hispanic.) For those who need additional incentive to get out and vote, please remind them of the Supreme Court which is probably the most important issue of this election for young Americans. The direction of social justice and equality for our country for the next 30 or s ...

"You explain to people first, why is it that I think what I think? You're not trying to prove a point. Law is not mathematics. If I am a mathematician, I am trying to prove why 'A' follows from 'B.'

The best I can do is explain to a reader what my reasons are for adopting this particular conclusion." ~Justice Breyer on expressing opinions in writing.

Apparently y'all don't know who Justice Breyer is, which is a *** shame
In my "Ideal World" all name calling, dirty tricks, and spin in regards to politics would stop. Then we could have honest conversations about issues. One party believes government can solve all problems. The other party believes smaller government is best. These two concepts need to be debated, but I also believe the most important debate that MUST be held is the Supreme Court. Supreme Court Justices are placed in office for LIFE. President Obama in 2010 and 2011 placed Justice Sotamayor and Justice Kagan on the court. Both of these ladies are in their late 40's. The next President will place 3 more judges on the court if Justice Breyer, Ginsburg, and Scalia retire as anticipated. A President's policies last a few years. The Supreme Court's ploicies last for decades. Do you want the court 7-2 liberal or 6-3 conservative for decades. This is the most important debate of all. A liberal court will further remove our Lord out of our lives and shift the values this country was built on. ...
"Study: Most Americans Can't Name One Supreme Court Justice." I'll bet it's Stephen Breyer. Aways thought he should assert himself more.
According to a new poll, two thirds of Americans can't name a single member of the Court. Meanwhile, these people are more powerful than they've been in a long time.
Funny.. Breyer's the first on my list. Better Know a Justice! A Supreme Court Cheat Sheet - Andrew Cohen - The Atlantic

"Stephen Breyer has always been an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court." Those kids today and their mindset!
As SCOTUS acquires more power, only 1 in 3 can name a justice. 20% can name Roberts, 3% Breyer.
It doesn't surprise me that Stephen Breyer is the least known SCOTUS justice. He doesn't really make the headlines the way other justices do
I can never remember Supreme Court Justice Breyer. I spend most of my time trying to forget Scalia...
Not even ONE?? I wish I could say emphatically that I could name all nine, but for some reason I always forget Breyer.
Just because the average retirement age of a justice is 78.7. Breyer is 74. I don't know. Augury?

I never thought I'd say this, thank you Justice Roberts. And my thanks to Justices Sotomayor, Kagan, Breyer & Ginsberg we are so grateful.
Thanks a lot Roberts. And i like how your rational for upholding the act was to basically not look too political. because do you think Justice's Breyer, Kagan, Sotomayor and Ginsberg would ever switch to the more conservative side of any issue? Not on a happy day in *** No, they vote the way of the party of the Presidents that confirmed them. Republican Presidents have not had as much luck

"They called it a penalty and not a tax for a reason." - Justice Breyer 03/26/12
Jay one small correction...Prez Bush Sr appointed Justice Souter, not Breyer. Breyer was appointed by Clinton.
It's funny how when a conservative abandons the principles of conservatism (Chief Justice Roberts) liberals praise them for not being partisan, but if a liberal ever sides with a conservative position he is viewed as a turncoat (Sen Lieberman supporting McCain in 2008). Of course it goes the other way too, but since most of the media is left leaning, that perspective is more noticeable. I don't think my liberal friends would be congratulating Justice Breyer if he had sided with the conservatives on the court.

Justice Ginsburg concurs but says she would uphold the mandate under the Commerce Clause. Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor join.
Say what you like about the policy of of the Affordable Care Act-- that issue still is and should be up for a a vigorous debate among all Americans. What does leave me satisfied about the ruling is that Chief Justice Roberts writing the majority opinion with the 'liberal' justices shows that, at least insofar as possible, the Supreme Court is not an overtly political institution. I would be expressing the same feeling if the ruling had gone the other way with Justice Ginsburg or Justice Breyer writing the opinion. So, let us engage in an intelligent policy discussion; the court has left the legislating up to legislators and the voters who elect them, which is how it should be. It's nice to know that there is one branch of the Federal Government whose legitimacy has not been entirely eroded by political gamesmanship.
Before you complain about the decision by SCOTUS maybe you should read the decision that Chief Justice John Roberts wrote, along with Justice Kagan and justice Breyer.
Don't forget Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor anchoring the "right" side of justice in your praise of Roberts.
Yes, thank you Justice Roberts for surprising us, but thank you more to Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan for never being in doubt.
The Court's majority was Chief Justice Roberts along with Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan

Justice Breyer believes that the spread of communicable disease is effectually commerce and so regulated under the Commerce Clause.
Justice Breyer asserts that forced inoculation to stave off a pandemic is within the power of the Commerce Clause.
At 1:04, Justice Breyer suggests that thru the Commerce Clause, Congress can force citizens to do ANYTHING.
From this article. Breyer added, “Montana’s experience, like considerable experience elsewhere since the court’s decision in Citizens United, casts grave doubt on the court’s supposition that independent expenditures do not corrupt or appear to do so.” Critics of the Supreme Court’s campaign finance rulings attacked Monday’s decision, saying Citizens United had led to unprecedented levels of outside money pouring into the presidential campaign and races for the House and Senate — the vast majority of it raised not from corporations but from wealthy individuals and spent by “super PACs” and other independent groups." Didn't Corporations become recognized as 'individuals' politically? just sayin...
Today was a big day for the Supreme Court! Two very significant cases were decided - one a petition to revisit the Citizen's United case that defined corporations as able to make political expenditures, and the other being the immigration and perceived racial profiling laws in Arizona. Citizens United was again over-ruled, allowing corporations to continue independent expenditures to political campaigns. The dissenting opinions by Justice Breyer, Ginsberg, Sotomayor, and Keegan stated they believe that political expenditures by corporations can and does have corruption effects. What do YOU think?? Read the ruling and dissenting opinion here: full slip readings from the Supreme Court, go here:
Justice Breyer: Montana case shows why Citizens United was wrong
Please mark your calendars today and remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard the Supreme Court’s ruling on Citizens United ruling and Montana’s challenge to it. June 25 2012 will be remembered as the day our American democracy died. Everyone alive at the time remembers where they were on September 22, 1963 and September 11, 2001. With this ruling upholding Citizens United’s control over the states to regulate the limits on campaign funding, the Supreme Court has effectively given that control over to corporations. This presidential election will decide if that decision will stand or be overturned after the president appoints two more Justices to replace Justice Ginsberg and Justice Breyer, who are retiring. How important is this election to the idea of an American democracy on any scale? Monumental. Historic. Not since the ratification of the Articles of Confederation has an election meant so much to the future of this country. Should this ruling be upheld by future Courts Ju ...
