    Separation of powers is a political doctrine originating in the writings of Montesquieu in The Spirit of the Laws where he urged for a constitutional government with three separate branches of government. Each of the three branches would have defined powers to check the powers of the other branches. This idea was called separation of powers. This philosophy heavily influenced the writing of the United States Constitution, according to which the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches of the United States government are kept distinct in order to prevent abuse of power. This United States form of separation of powers is associated with a system of checks and balances.
    I'm well familiar with the system of checks and balances. I understand they are three integral parts designed to produce a sound whole. I simply refuse to regard three branches that are inherently fundamentally different from one another as equal.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The rights of those living in the 15 states were already the same as those in the other 35. Perhaps you have data that suggests otherwise?

I just smiled and kept telling myself -- it's my son's and his bride's day ...
    Google is your friend. Use "Walmart starting wages in ND" as a beginning. The top result will answer any question you may have...

    Glad to hear about the wedding and that you behaved. Car damaged is little to worry over...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Actually yes, if Congress gets a supermajority together, they can pass a law on their own directing the Executive branch to take certain action, or narrowing a Judge's authority in certain matters.

    why is it becuase of this USSC decision,....there are people now saying the court is dysfunctional.

    the court has not been rendering decisions based on the constitution what it says... before you and i where even born, ....decisions are based now on personal agendas.

    I'm reiterating the logic of the law, not making an argument for it.

    I could care less about the court -- I'm looking for consistency from conservatives who will laud this decision, which was not made on Constitutional grounds.
