    He's addicted to tingle... can't get to sleep without it. His sleep literally depends upon Obama staying President ...
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Not getting enough sleep might bring on a tingle or two. Or maybe it was something else running down his leg from excitement. I have a little dog that has that problem.

    Anyone know how long President Obama and/or AG Holder have to answer the appeals court order on whether or not the Obama administration believes judges have the power to overturn federal laws? I'd like to see the AG's office, they're probably running round like hamsters in a cage or a cat in a potty box, trying to cover up this mess. "Ah the tangled webs we weave . . . . ."

    The supreme court was never intended or granted powers to strike down laws made by ELECTED officials. Conservatives always want to rant and rave about our founding fathers and the powers they intended for our gov't yet when there are clear deviations from those intended powers that benefit them, they always make excuses for it. It wasn't until under Marshall, the Court established the principle of judicial review, including specifying itself as the supreme expositor of the Constitution.

    The supreme court is only intended to be the highest court of law in cases that involve state and federal law. It was never intended to warp and manipulate and ultimately decide what the constitution means.
    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    If a law is found unConstitutional by SCOTUS, it's struck down. What do you think they look at laws for?

    I guess the schools can be resegregated, too. OnWisconsin says so.

    This is frikkin crazy. The Constitution is either the Prime Law of the land, or as you argue, it is toilet paper.

    Its the former And thank God it is.

    Where did you get that idea? Deciding on Constitutional matters is exactly what the Supreme Court does. Matters not whether it is Johnny on the playground or POTUS. If it is a Constitutional matter, federal courts have the jurisdiction. The ultimate federal court is the Supreme.
