Why Scalia’s ‘Racial Entitlement’ Quote Is Even Scarier Than You Think via Think Progress: Justice Antonin Scalia quite deservedly came under fire yesterday for his claim that a key provision of the Voting Rights Act is a “perpetuation of racial entitlement.” If the justice were looking to confirm every suspicion that conservative opposition to the law that broke the back of Jim Crow voter exclusions is rooted in white racial resentment, he could hardly have picked a better way to do so. Viewed in context, however, Scalia’s quote is actually even more disturbing than the initial headlines suggested. Beyond whatever resentments Justice Scalia may hold, his “racial entitlements” statement was also part of a broader theory about the proper role of judges in society. And if that theory were taken seriously by a majority of the justices, it would potentially undermine Medicare, Social Security and countless other programs. According to Scalia: "Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it ...
Justice Scalia must cause John Roberts so many headaches. It's like Boehner having to deal with those in caucus that lack self-restraint.
Apparently the rarefied air of the Supreme Court has so filled Justice Scalia's head that he has no idea what goes on across the nation during every election. What was he thinking about during the State of the Union speech when President Obama referred to a near centenarian (a woman of color) who was in the gallery who was forced to wait over six hours at the poll. He also never heard about the Eskimos whose local poll was moved over 100 miles away which would force them to take a plane to vote. I think he needs to get out more.

I'm no expert on the judiciary of our government, but is it possible to impeach or impugn the reputation of U.S. Supreme Court Justices with penalty to them. I think that in this day and age, Scalia has crossed the line. They gave President Clinton a hard time, and I do believe that Andrew Johnson was embarassed back after the Civil War. It's time to punish Justice Scalia. After all, who the *** do these judges think they are? They are not God and are not infallible. The people get the final word. When all of those states are Red, but still come out a loser, it's obvious that there is a racist society. God will win all the time. Not to say that the President is God, but he is definitely in His Favor Zone. I'm just sick of this 3-pronged government not acting in the best interest of the masses. Maybe I should move.
In my opinion, Justice Scalia is one public outburst or scandal away from impeachment hearings.

The case came from Shelby County ,Alabama and Justice Antonin Scalia branded the law as "racial entitlement ". Think about that .. a right that is given to ALL Americans .. That Legislation gave Black Voters The right to vote who had been denied that basic right . The right to vote is power we all have .. The right to elect people of our choice.. Inputs in important decision that affect where we live ... Our children's education and safety no matter what our skin color is ... So Shelby County , Ala and Justice Scalia ... Read the 15th Amendment of the US Constitution which gave us the right to vote (1870) ... Alabama and most southern states denied us that right because of Jim Crow laws and it took another 95yrs to have full voting rights ... No Justice Scalia not "racial entitlements ". A RIGHT!

It was a racial comment that got Howard Cosell fired so many years ago. Racially motivated comments have ended careers many times over the years. Yet it does nothing to Justice Scalia?? How is it possible for a man to have that high profile position, to make such an obviously racial statement, and face no consequences? Are some people truly above the law??? Most have gone through their lives being told regularly, no-one is above the law. I know there is no written law about making racially charged statements and slurs, but we do have an inherent morality toward ethical treatment, especially from our Judges. Justice Scalia isn’t just a Judge either, he’s the Chief Justice on the Court of our highest Judges. So why is he not only allowed to spout bigotry, but also allowed to keep his position after doing so?
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia argued that the Voting Rights Act should not be upheld because congress really didn't mean to vote unanimously for its enactment, and we should not rely on Congress for this matter and should ignore their intent. My question is this: Since Justice Scalia thinks we shouldn't listen to Congress for enactment of laws, does this also mean that we should ignore the rulings of the Supreme Court from now on? If so, I think Justice Scalia just argued himself out of a job.
Justice Scalia's comment about "racial entitlement" should scare every American regardless of race or ethnicity. Elections have consequences--and no part of Obama's legacy will be more consequential than his ability to shape the Supreme Court.
Justice Antonin Scalia disgraced both himself and the Supreme Court when he described the 1964 Voting Rights Act, as well as the 1965 Civil Rights Act, as "racial entitlement.". These comments can be described as nothing less than preducial in the worst possible context. The fact that he would be such a loose cannon and fire off such a personal broadside ad hoc is more unconchable, as it shows lack of discretion and discipline. If he cannot or will not apologize for these unfortunate statements, Justice Scalia would serve any legacy he leaves behind, as well as the High Court, by just resigning. cmc

Why did the first Black president bring out the ugly in our society? I feel its because it never went away just stayed dormant until it felt threatened... The Voting Rights Act law under consideration by the high Ct, makes Justice Scalia a bigot in any standard of evaluation. He says its just more entitlements for African Americans but it affects us all not just Black Americans but all Americans. The vehemence of hate directed at our fine leader is another way to measure racial hate.The Klan re surges since Obama's election the right wing hate mongers have circled the wagons and formed a barrier of hate to protect themselves from a social change long over due. They scream the best man should always have the job but if the best man is Black they scream he is not qualified. Guns sales are up, Birch society is coming back from years of marginalization... I thought they were *** Clinton and they were but this has reached a new low. We are the country that gave up slavery last and our bigotry is evident in ...
Am I the only one appalled by Justice Scalia's opinion on the VRA? This guy had the temerity to say, "I don't think that's attributable the fact that it is so much clearer now that we need this. I think it is attributable, very likely attributable, to a phenomenon that is is called perpetuation of racial entitlement." We know Scalia well enough to know there's not much he can say or do that should come as a surprise. He always aligns with the Courts most radical conservative views. However, he still gets a little more respect from me than my cowardly friend Justice Clarence Thomas, who has a permanent mute button, constantly whispering "yeah sah" Justic Scalia in the background.

Goodman,Chaney, Schwerner. Viola Luizzo. Jimmy Lee Johnson. All the named and Unnamed foot soldiers and Freedom Fighters who marched.And fought. And died,even for Clarence Thomas. And for him to sit there and say Nothing. You are a *** DISGRACE. AND FAR WORSE THAN SCALIA ANY DAY.
America, America, America ! The U.S. Supreme Justice Scalia, made it emphatically clear that "Despite the fact that America may presently have an African American President'' Racism is still ALIVE & STRONG in America, and the Supreme Court will endorse & enforce Racism. Here's what Justice Scalia is saying, in what he didn't audibility say *** & other MINORITY'S should be grateful for the entitlement WHITE American has given them to vote.
Justice Scalia go to Alabama and ask the Grand Wizard of the KKK whether or not racism and white supremacy are relics of a long gone past.

This is for all my friends who have been lambasting Justice Scalia for his recent remarks about the Voting Rights Act. First of all, he was *not* talking about the whole Act, he was talking about a specific pair of sections, 4 and 5, which make extra demands of certain states and counties. He made the unfortunate choice of words calling it an "entitlement". That was stupid. But the law is narrow, it only protects cases of race discrimination, and it treats some parts of the country differently than others, when (IMHO) the Act should apply evenly to all places Americans vote. Details: From the DOJ web site: 5 freezes election practices or procedures in certain states until the new procedures have been subjected to review, either after an administrative review by the United States Attorney General, or after a lawsuit before the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. This means that voting changes in covered jurisdictions may not be used until that review has been obtained." The states wh ...

IN THE CASE OF VOTING RIGHTS - Justice Scalia, has so much to consider. He undoubtedly has given himself to many long periods of deep contemplation of the historical and social context from whence came the struggle for civil rights, for equality in the right to be represented, to have access to the political process itself, as an American citizen. After all, isn't that notion at the very core of the spark that ignited The American Revolution? "No taxation without representation" was the battle cry of the American Rebellion. They refused to pay a tax on Tea they did not wish to buy, in support of a government in which they had no voice, no vote, no rights. As the ever-changing face of America moves onward, from its origins, in the multitudes of The Native American Indian and The Southwestern "Comancheros" and Mexican Rancheros, to the milky white faces of the pioneers --Europeans searching for a better life, free from oppression, from persecution in their own homelands, they fled to the land of opportunity ...

Tell Chief Justice Roberts: Don't let Justice Scalia's Republican activism on the bench drag America back to the racist Jim Crow Era The petition to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts reads: "Put your country and the Constitution before partisan politics. If you overturn the Voting Rights Act with support from Justice Scalia, you put the credibility of the Supreme Court — and your legacy — at risk. Ensure history remembers the Supreme Court under your leadership as Chief Justice as 'the Roberts Court' not 'the Republican activist Court' that returned us to the era of Jim Crow." As one of the youngest Chief Justices appointed in U.S. history, the conservative jurist John Roberts has long been expected to leave his distinct stamp on the Supreme Court. But will his legacy be one of conservative jurisprudence or Republican judicial activism in the tradition of Jim Crow? Will his leadership be known in history books as "the Roberts Court" or "the Racist Court"? That distinction may very well hinge on ...

And that was only a 5-year term. "Then, it is reenacted 5 years later, again for a 5-year term. Double-digits against it in the Senate. Then it was reenacted for 7 years. Single digits against it.

I thought protecting the right to vote was a distinctly American trait!! I thought the Supreme Court was charged with safeguarding liberty and freedom!! All you conservatives out there should be ashamed of your champion!! I pray that your sense of decency will rally you to argue against what justice Scalia has said! Racial entitlement ? I along with every minority group is country should be offended greatly by what Justice Scalia said! We should pray that this does not foretell the impending decision on the fate of section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. More importantly I pray that this Supreme Court will not go down as possessing the most biased and ignorant justices in American history.
Wonder how pending Supreme Court ruling might impact the single member district case against Farmers Branch. Heated debate on Voting Rights Act as Justice Scalia calls landmark law a “racial entitlement" liberals push back - By Todd J. Gillman/Reporter tgillmanFebruary 27, 2013 WASHINGTON –The fate of a landmark civil rights law that has ensured the right to vote for millions of people in Texas and other states is now in the hands of a deeply divided Supreme Court. An hour of heated oral arguments exposed the court’s ideological chasm, and a 5-4 ruling striking down key parts of the Voting Rights Act seemed plausible. The Shelby County, Ala., case amounts to the most potent assault to date on the law, in particular Section 5, which requires Texas and eight other states to seek federal permission before any changes to election rules. Parts of seven other states also are covered. The four liberals on the court were openly hostile to arguments that it’s time to end oversight in jurisdictions long cov ...
On the same day that Rosa Parks gets her statue to mark her contributions toward civil rights, Justice Scalia makes remarks which harken back to 1913 not 2013 by saying the right to vote is an entitlement. The Supreme Court now joins the Congress in its inability to help govern this nation.
Well, Justice Scalia joins the other haters to put blacks back and suppress the black vote - if it were left up to him he wants to get rid of sec. 5 in the Voting Rights Act - they are trying everything possible to really enslave African Americans - how can Scalia say the Voting Rights Act - sec. 5 give racial entitlement? we were given the right to vote - if this is passed, states will change the votes in there states, rewrite the laws in each district and Lord help us - very scary thing - Lord help

Oh that pesky Second Amendment -- the one about those guns. There's been an ongoing argument here for the last 2 days about gun regulations. Can we regulate guns? Are universal background checks within the scope of the amendment? Several very persistent posters seem to believe that the 2nd Amendment is absolute -- a position that is no surprise to me. My father held the identical view. For all of you absolutists, I give you Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, writing in the Heler decision: “Like most rights,” Justice Scalia said, “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited.” And: “nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and car ...
Georgetown law professor Louis Michael Seidman discusses ON CONSTITUTIONAL DISOBEDIENCE, a book that will make Justice Scalia cry, 1pm.
The nature of humans is to be imperfect, emotional creatures. The nature (AND PURPOSE) of guns is to throw metal projectiles at such speed and with such force as to destroy whatever is in front of them. Having a gun, without ANY regulation for the sake of safety, is not within the scope of the right to bear arms -- even Justice Scalia says so. Even if you operate on the premise that "guns don't kill people, people kill people," why would anyone want more people to have the means to hurt themselves or the rest of us? For each person who really wants to have a gun for a legitimate purpose (not just because the 3-year old inside of you wants it and will have a tantrum if you can't have it -- and yes, you must admit that there are a lot of people like that), ask yourself, if the person next to you on the bus is allowed to have one too, what would make you feel safe around them? The answer probably includes, in some combination, that they are: a) screened and not formally identifiable as at high risk of act .. ...

For those of you who cite the UNCONSTITUTIONAL 1994 "Assault weapons ban" as a "We did it once, we can do it again" I present to you: "In 1994, the D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago decisions didn't exist. There was no judicial barrier to passing bans. Now it is precedent that a) the people have an individual fundamental right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes not dependent upon militia service, b) that holding has been incorporated to the states, and c) Justice Scalia (in the Heller holding) clarified what the U.S. v. Miller (1939) decision actually said. Miller established a two-pronged test to define just what types of arms are subject to Second Amendment protection. It held that small arms "in common use" that "bear[s] some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia" enjoy constitutional protection. Semiautomatic rifles and pistols meet both prongs of this test, hence they are proscribed from any government ban. Since the primary purpose enumerat ...

As you wish, m'lady: Justice Scalia and Taylor Swift (LOL):
Alright friends. It's time for my two cents as I am growing weary of the polarizing gun debate clogging my news feed and interfering with my God given right to laugh at grumpy kitties and Walmart patrons. If you're very left of center, you may want to pass this up. I am still friends with all of you regardless of our differences of thought; I hope to receive the same consideration from you. The law of the land regarding firearms is eloquently stated in US v. Heller by Justice Scalia and has been in effect since June 2008. I strongly recommend actually reading it before you spout off about what you think the Second Amendment means; either at the time of drafting or in the present. It will require a Constitutional Amendment at this point to have any kind of outright bans and that will never happen. The government is trying to respond to a national outcry to do something to stop the violence. But let's look at the perpetrators in Colorado and in Newtown. In Colorado you have a PhD candidate whose only real i ...
In my exchange with senator Leahy here is one small segment in our ongoing exchange.Senator Leahy made this comment: I grew up hunting in Vermont and am still an avid target shooter. I value our Second Amendment rights, and the Supreme Court has said definitively that Americans are guaranteed its protections. But like all of the rights guaranteed by our Constitution, it is not absolute. I agreed with Justice Scalia when he wrote in the Supreme Court's District of Columbia v. Heller decision that the Second Amendment does not prohibit reasonable regulations.
Todd's New Word of the Day for 01.23.2013: Rapscalia (n) a vicious scoundrel in a position of power, influence or authority from which he cannot be forcibly removed. Origin: Rapscallion (n. a scoundrel or rascal) + Scalia (n. Antonin Scalia is a justic on the Supreme Court famous for his extreme statements and incessantly partisan statements) "In spite of initial appearances, the respected jurist was quite the rapscalia."

Justice Scalia's headgear. More than a hat?
I hate to admit it, but I own the same hat. Never knew Justice Scalia and I shared the same academic fashion sense.
The New York Times referred to Justice Scalia's headgear as "a puffy Renaissance hat." It actually is a replica of St. Thomas More's hat from a Holbein painting. If the NYT is going to make fun of Scalia and the hat, the reporter should at least know what it is.

Great music at the inaugural . Today Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and Kelly Clarkson where awesome. Justice Scalia also rocked that hat.
This is the most moving Inaugurations I have ever seen. The Brooklyn choir was incredible... (and they did sing about Jesus...I'm a Jew and I teared up when they sang: "As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free...".the speakers...the joy in Justice Sotermeyer's demeanor and the cheers from the crowd at the mention of her name...even Chief Justice Roberts got it right this time...THIS is the SCALED DOWN Inaugural?!? Just one question: Where did that hat on Justice Scalia's head come from?

Justice Antonin Scalia: "Guns may be regulated" In July 2012, Justice Scalia, one of the Supreme Court's most vocal and conservative judges, said that the 2nd Amendment leaves room for U.S. legislatures to regulate guns, including "dangerous and unusual weapons." The justice also noted that there were legal precedents from the days of the Founding Fathers that banned frightening firearms and limited the locations where weapons could be carried.
API - In what can only be considered a landmark decision, the Zoopreme Court upheld today the assertion that guns are people. Writing the majority opinion, Godfather Scalia opined that the Second Amendment clearly afforded the same rights to guns as people enjoy; namely the liberty to take lives in the pursuit of happiness. Justice Scalia went on to write that "throughout American history guns have been an expression of freedom as exemplified by such fine institutions as the Mafia, KKK, and NRA." The decision has created somewhat of a panic in Washington as lawmakers scramble to adapt the Affordable Care Act to provide coverage for sick guns as well as to activate unemployment benefits for guns that have not been fired in more than two weeks.

It will be interesting to see what the Supreme Court does with an Assault Weapons Ban: Gun loving Justice Scalia's judicial philosophy is that of constitutional originalism -- meaning the Constitution should be interpreted solely in terms of the framers' original intent. He professes to believe that the words in the Constitution must be interpreted to mean only what they meant when they were written -- no less, no more. So the Second Amendment ought to protect citizens' right to bear flintlock rifles & pistols -- no less, and no more!
"And what did Justice Scalia say? Pretty much that not only could Maine not secede (ironically enough, Maine is one of the three states that has no secession petition on the White House website), but the question is so firmly settled that it could not even get a hearing before the Supreme Court, because the United States government would refuse to entertain it: I am afraid I cannot be of much help with your problem, principally because I cannot imagine that such a question could ever reach the Supreme Court. To begin with, the answer is clear. If there was any constitutional issue resolved by the Civil War, it is that there is no right to secede. (Hence, in the Pledge of Allegiance, “one Nation, indivisible.”) Secondly, I find it difficult to envision who the parties to this lawsuit might be. Is the State suing the United States for a declaratory judgment? But the United States cannot be sued without its consent, and it has not consented to this sort of suit."
An interesting case challenging the NYC $340 fee for issuance or renewal of a 3-year "Residence Premises" handgun license will have oral arguments before the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals on January 30th. Justice Scalia in the oral arguments for Heller invited SAF/CalGuns attorney Alan Gura to challenge the D.C., license requirement but Gura refused for reasons which have since become obvious. As a result, the Heller Court said it was not deciding the question of whether or not licenses are required to exercise one's Second Amendment rights. The case is Kwong v. Bloomberg No. 12-1578
Teatro alla Scalia (Real world theatre) Dear Rev. T. Nichols Evans hailing from MoveOn Dot Org and Bentonville, Arkansas, you suggest that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Gregory Scalia should recuse himself in the matter of whether homosexuals have a valid civil rights case in this country vis-à-vis civil marriage, and you go on to say that the good justice likened homosexuality to murder, which, if he did say that, MIGHT conceivably be a valid reason for Justice Scalia to not participate in the upcoming civil-rights-claim case of homosexuals. But I'm wondering why you didn't quote the good justice, why you didn't produce the exact words that Justice Scalia allegedly uttered in the matter, especially since you are asking us all to sign a petition that would urge the US House of Representatives to impeach — no less! — Justice Scalia! So, what, exactly, were Justice Scalia's alleged incendiary remarks? As a footnote, wouldn't it be best if the other members of the court dealt with this matter rather tha ...
In reading this post written by Justice Scalia: Just as long as the “solution” they seek does not infringe on the rights under the Second Amendment. While the Heller case seemed to leave the door open for “reasonable” restrictions, we all know that the party in power tends to define reasonable. But the Court did leave us with some guidance. From Justice Scalia’s majority opinion: Some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, that only those arms in existence in the 18th century are protected by the Second Amendment. We do not interpret constitutional rights that way. Just as the First Amendment protects modern forms of communications, e.g., Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union, 521 U.S. 844,849 (1997), and the Fourth Amendment applies to modern forms of search, e.g., Kyllo v. United States, 533 U. S. 27, 35–36 (2001), the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding. So, f ...

This was written by a classmate and friend, Sherlynn Hicks. Very powerful! 3 hours ago near Los Angeles, CA · "I'm about done; spent the better part of the day sick to my stomach. If the means to massacre 5 year olds is a constitutional right, then the Constitution needs to change. If you think it doesn't, you are wrong." I want to tease this out. I couldn't sleep last night because my brain couldn't get rid of the image of a just past toddler being faced with something...a weapon...that s/he had no understanding of. And then dying. Horribly. Justice Scalia is wrong, as he is on more things than I have the energy to list, in his assertion that the Constitution is static and it and its amendments should be understood and exercised as it would have been at the time of their creation. The Constitution IS a living thing. It's ingenious really. The authors knew that if their experiment in liberty survived, it would need to change with the time, culture and situation and they made provisions for that with the ...
Yes I am spending my Friday night watching Justice Breyer and Justice Scalia debate.
Powerful: December 13, 2012 "This past Monday, when speaking at Princeton University, Justice Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court made a grotesque and astonishing statement. In response to a student’s question about his unyielding support of laws that would ban consensual sexual relations between *** people, even in the privacy of their own homes, Justice Scalia responded, “If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder?” That a sitting U.S. Justice could draw any kind of parallel between an act of love and tenderness on the one hand and an act of ultimate violence and evil on the other is more than disheartening; it sends a message to LGBT people everywhere that a member of our highest court cannot see us as anything but criminals, simply because of who we are and who we love. How can any *** couple coming before this court seeking equal treatment under the law have any realistic hope that Justice Scalia will fairly apply the rule of law and the principles of our ...
George Takei “Well, it seems to me that if Justice Elena Kagan can recuse herself from the Boston case, Justice Scalia needs to consider recusing himself,” Takei said. “He is obviously not unbiased.

We can't keep accepting these flawed gun advocate arguments: 1.Argument: The constitution guarantees our right to bear arms: Reality. This is Not really true. It's a myth. t was a limited right related to militias that was completely pervented in the last few decades, especially by Justice Scalia in the Heller case. Unfortunately, his reading expanded that right and we sadly now accept that this was always the case. Read the Second Amendment and decide for yourself what it means. 2. Argument: Guns don't kill people, we just need to control the crazy people: Reality- Look at the facts, every other modern country has either almost completely eradicated their gun homicide problem or is 20 to 30 times less likely to have gun violence. Do they just not have crazy people?? Japan has less than 10 gun deaths a year, England, 39. The US over 10,000! They both seem to have their share of mentally unstable people. So I'd say yes, it IS the guns doing the killing. Also, you can't really stab 30 people to death at a . ...

Take away justice, then, and what are governments but great bandit bands? Saint Augustine, Civitas Dei (City of God, 4.4) Augustine Washington was George’s father. Justice Scalia in the United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 (1992) opinion described as the “fourth branch of government”, and quoted Justice O’Connor in the unanimous United States v. R Enterprises, Inc., 498 U. S. 292, 297 (1991): “The grand jury’s functional independence from the Judicial Branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing and in the manner in which that power is exercised... ...the grand jury can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.” Let US, We the People go to OUR local Grand Jury to have it investigate Fraud by our Public Servants, including in the Election Board and Polling Places.

This past weekend their was a lot of coverage of the Supreme Court Justices focused on remarks made by Justices Samuel Alito and Antonin Scalia at the Federalist Society’s annual National Lawyers Convention. On Thursday night, Justice Alito spoke to roughly 1500 attendees about Citizens United v. FEC, his law school education, and the Constitution. Coverage of the Justice’s remarks comes from Todd Ruger at the Blog of the Legal Times and Mark Sherman of the Associated Press. In addition, at the Convention’s conclusion on Saturday afternoon, Justice Scalia spoke about his new book with Bryan Garner, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts; the Federalist Society’s blog has coverage of the contents of his speech (h/t Howard Bashman). Finally, in an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, Michael McGough argues that it is not improper for Justices to speak at such events, but he also urges the Justices to accept invitations from groups that do not share their judicial philosophies.
We are not a democracy , we are a democratic republic that is supposed to be governed by the constitution, including the bill of rights. The rights of the individual are every bit as important as the rights of the collective populous. If either Justice Kennedy or Justice Scalia pass away during Obama's last term, he will replace them with activists that deny the 2nd Amendment. At that moment the rights of the individual to own firearms will vanish instantaneously.
30 States Petition Federal Government to Secede After Election UPDATE: We’ve uncovered comments from conservative Justice Scalia talking about the idea of secession. You can read his thoughts on the issue here. – Liberals often like to compare President Barack Obama to former President Abraham Lincoln. The comparison is usually dismissed as laughably hagiographical, but judging by one unexpected bit of fallout from Tuesday’s election, it could well end up being accurate in just one respect: Like Lincoln, Obama is facing requests by the citizens of numerous states to secede from the union. However, unlike with Lincoln, these requests are peaceful, and highly unlikely to do anything at all except generate news headlines. A massive number of petitions are currently circulating on Change.org, a website designed to call for action by the federal government or by private institutions on particular causes, calling for particular states to be granted permission to secede. Nor are they confined to the usual ...
Still counting the votes in Florida !!! OMG.Call the Supreme Court.Justice Scalia will lead the way !
Our morning watching the "High 9" in action was incredible!! At times they were funny, looked like they might have been planning on what to have for lunch and then out of nowhere, would swoop in with questions like a bird of prey after its dinner. Someone needs to get Justice Ginsberg a booster chair as she looks as though her chin is resting on the bench. The only 2 Justices that didn't ask any questions was Justice Thomas who sits and whispers back and forth with Justice Scalia and Justice Alito. Interesting sidebar about Justice Thomas, the man has spoken in court since 1999, what's up with that?! Sandra Day O'Connor was in attendance today but I was unable to see her from where we were seated. Unfortunately, no snaps today as we had to leave our cells behind in the hotel. As for the decision? It will take 3 to 4 months before that is handed down. A pretty cool day and one we are ever so grateful to have witnessed!!
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.

THE PERVERSION OF ANTONIN SCALIA AND HOW HIS PERVERSION CHANGED DISCOURSE IN AMERICAN SOCIETY Few people realize how perverted geniuses can change society. Justice Scalia is one of those perverted geniuses. His interpretation of the Second Amendment was not "originalism". Travel back with me to 1789, the year of the great compromise. The 13 colonies had just signed the Treaty of Paris and they were working out a change from the Articles of Confederation to a Constitutional Republican form of Government. There were to be three branches. The Legislative, the Executive, and the Judiciary. The Legislative Branch was to be "Bicameral", which was a unique experiment. Each state would have two Senators no matter how small its size and population and there would be a House of Representatives based on population. The Northern States did not wish the Southern States to increase its population by importing Slaves and breeding the Slaves that lived in the South, so they counted a Slave to be 3/5ths of a person, for r ...
The New York Times has also enthusiastically endorsed Obama. Add to this headline that "Mr. Romney's campaign Web site says he will 'nominate judges in the mold of Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Scalia, Thomas and Alito," among the most conservative justices in the past 75 years. There is no doubt that he would appoint justices who would seek to overturn Roe v. Wade." NY Times Editorial, Sunday, October 28, 2012
Following his smack down of Justice Scalia's Reading Law, Judge Posner reviews the Bible, Moby *** and others:
Within the last few weeks at Ferguson Center we had Congressman Paul Ryan, Liza Minnelli, Justice Scalia, Jackson Brown, Bo Burnham and Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. SO, the conclusion must be we like our politics conservative and our entertainers liberal!

I just remember being excited at meeting the "Green Eyed Lady" DJ on Channel 5 on Salem's Tri-County Cable!
Incredible day. Was able to see Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan speak today at UTK. She is funny, very well spoken obviously and was a real treat to listen to. Finding out her favorite movies are Superhero flicks and that she is about to hunt Antelope with Justice Scalia was just an added bonus!
Justice Scalia tells Piers Morgan women have enough rights (maybe too much? He doesn't like RvWade.). Quote "...WE gave them protection to own property and conduct business." He really really scares me. Is he friends with Romney? We need two Supreme Courts. Add another with nine women and see society improve.

It's revealing that Justice Scalia is compelled to write books. He has the most powerful pulpit in the world from which to espouse (and often enforce) his world view, and yet is motivated (only slightly by money and fame, I think) to lecture us all again. When you publish a book, you get to call the shots and don't have others to argue against your point of view. He's like a spoiled kid who won't let anyone touch his toys.
