    That's why the SCOTUS is not elected. Brown v Board of Education wouldn't have passed the Senate either.

    no, I think it will Jack, especially if Dems try to pass new legislation to undo the harm caused by the Court and the GOP blocks it ,,,

    And that's the problem. I believe that the racial component in opposition to BHO is insignificant. Why? Occam's razor. Racism isn't needed.

    Oh but they are today. Even the churches illegally push for candidates according to their tax-exempt status. Can you say IRS? Churches push for the "right" type of candidate. Of course, they didn't have the litmus tests then in your example, did they 2m?

    dude, you are all bent out of shape, and pissed at the court, becuase they didn't rule in your favor, but buck-up, you still have a opportunity to have them rule in your favor on another issue.

    You're going to have to explain that post. I can't make any sense of it.

    You admit racism. You have been against O-Bam-Bam since the night of the 2008 election when the collection of GOP congressmen got together to plot against him. We've been through this too many times? How many secret Koch conferences did C. Thomas attend with only Republican politicians and moneymen?

I am satisfied that yours must be an excellent religion to have produced a life of such exemplary virtue and correctness. For it is in our lives, and not from our words, that our religion must be judged.”

    he made the following recommendation to his nephew Peter Carr in 1787: "Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there be one, he must more approve the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

    1823 April 11. (Jefferson to John Adams). "The truth is that the greatest enemies to the doctrines of Jesus are those calling themselves the expositors of them, who have perverted them for the structure of a system of fancy absolutely incomprehensible, and without any foundation in his genuine words. And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors."
