Thurgood Marshall Associate Justice, United States Supreme Court Born July 2, 1908 in Baltimore, Maryland, he graduated from Lincoln University in Oxford, Pennsylvania. He served as counsel and chief counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and argued the groundbreaking case of Brown vs. Board of Education before the United States Supreme Court which effectively made segregration of the races in public schools illegal. In 1967, President Lyndon Johnson appointed him to the Supreme Court, replacing the retiring Justice Tom Clark of Texas. He was the first black to serve on the Court and was, in most reports, an almost larger-than-life figure there. He stepped down from the Court in July 1991 due to failing health and died of heart failure on January 24, 1993 at Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Maryland. He was buried in Section 5 of Arlington National Cemetery, near the graves of fellow Justices, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., William O. Douglas, William J. Brennan a ...

I read the first 66 pages of "Killing Lincoln"(2011) yesterday by Bill O'Reilly. I never really knew that much about the map locations of Lee's planned retreat to North Carolina from Petersburg, Virginia through central and western Virginia during April 1865(which was about 10 to 12 days before Lincoln) was assassinated. Our side fought as hard as they could matched against an enemy who had an infinite supply of anything and everything, all of which was new and supplied by the United States & not their own. I will certainly be glad to add this reference to my bibliography for 'From Appomattox to Iraq: United States Foreign Policy since Lee's Surrender to Grant' and to my 'Books Read', a side item in my Family Tree Maker program. I learned also from these first few pages that Booth's girlfriend, Lucy Hale(??), was also courted by Robert Lincoln(the President's son), and Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., a future Supreme Court Justice. Booth was infuriated by the younger Lincoln's attention of Lucy and how th ...
MORE ON THE NAZI BUSH CRIME FAMILY AND ITS INVOLVEMENT WITH NAZI AMERICA Advocates for population control and the study of eugenics include Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Wilson, president of Harvard and Irving Fisher, president of Yale and president of the Eugenics Research Association in the 1920s plus a host of other very public vocal figures.4 President Theodore Roosevelt appointed Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. to the U.S. Supreme Court where he served from 1902 to 1932. Holmes was an advocate for selective breeding and issued the sterilization verdict in the case of Carrie Buck in 1927. He said, “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”5 Sir Frederick *** a Pilgrims Society member ...
"Taxes are what we pay for civilized society." - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Oliver Wendell Holmes was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932. He is remembered not only for his great quotes, but as one of the three most cited American legal scholars of the 20th century. I appreciate Justice Holmes for his view on the U.S. Constitution, where he said: [it is] "an experiment, as all life is an experiment" and believed that as a consequence "we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death." The United States Constitution is a Living Document...at least as I interpret his words. Why would the Founding Fathers, who created this Nation, in whom we invest so much faith, for lack of a better word, have created a document that was fixed in time...of the 18th Century? Would they not have imagined that time, instead of standing still, that the people of t ...

So here's my prediction: Mitt Romney will win the POPULAR vote Nov 6th, but Obama will hold onto Ohio (mainly because of the auto bailout) and deprive Romney of the necessary 271 ELECTORAL COLLEGE votes. But it gets better: Ohio being Ohio, some delegates will bolt on Dec 6th when they meet to vote. They may swing the electoral vote count to Romney or result in a tie, which would send the election to the US House. The Democrats will sue..but unlike 2000 when the Supreme Court gave the election to Bush, John Roberts will side with the liberals because he wants to be the 21st century Oliver Wendell Holmes. You heard it here first.
“The jury has the power to bring a verdict in the teeth of both law and fact.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes, United States Supreme Court Justice “The jury has a right to judge both the law as well as the facts in controversy.” — John Jay, 1st Chief Justice of the Supreme Court “The pages of history shine on instances of the jury’s exercise of its prerogative to disregard instructions of the judge” — U.S. vs. Dougherty, 1972 “It would be an absurdity for jurors to be required to accept the judge’s view of the law, against their own opinion, judgment, and conscience.” — John Adams
This is the second of a two-part series on the Supreme Court and the military. Part I focused 'on the military history of the Court's future justices. Part II deals with the disconnect between the current Court and our military personnel. Justices Alito and Scalia with former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani at the 2007 National Italian American Foundation gala dinner in Washington. (Reuters) In an age of where the justices of the United States Supreme Court routinely peddle books on television , speak abroad at lavish events , and lecture at ideological venues , it feels odd that there is such a gulf -- both physical and metaphysical -- between the justices and the American service member. And yet there it is. It's not just that the Court is bereft of war veterans for the first time since 1936, a clear disconnect in this age of our so-called "endless war," it's that the justices, for as long as anyone can remember, don't ever seem to ever publicly honor the sacrifice of military service. ( See Update Be ...
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr, former justice of the US Supreme Court said, " I'm glad to pay taxes for I know by doing so I am purchasing civilization." It is a sad shame that we seem to no longer see the great privilege as well as the high civil responsibility of paying taxes, of purchasing civilization. Also, unlike giving to 'our church', which is for the most part another way of giving to ourselves and protecting our own investments and interests, being positive about the taxes we pay is proof positive that we own and take responsibility for our connection to all our fellow citizens. And that we understand the implication that our civilization is the essential foundation for our personal lives to have any existence or meaning at all. Surely one of the noblest motivations for working and making money is to pay taxes to a land which we believe, at least in its potential, is quite exceptional and has much to offer the world. When one's civilization seems to be crumbling around them, a key reason is because i ...
Teddy Boy Locsin, Jr. as the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He is Manila's answer to America's Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., was a member of the U.S. Supreme Court for 30 years. His mind, wit and work earned him the unofficial title of "the greatest justice since John Marshall." At one point in his life, Justice Holmes explained his choice of a career by saying: "I might have entered the ministry if certain clergymen I knew had not looked and acted so much like undertakers."
