    Usually when they upheld the laws, particularly state laws, but even some federal laws, oppressing some group.

    And what kind of an argument is "well sometimes the Court gets it wrong"? No one argues differently. But the general consensus is that state laws/bans/restrictions being struck down in favor of individual rights, particularly when it is like this issue, is the right ruling.

    There are only a handful of justices that actually look to the Constitution to see how it is intended to handle any case before them. You can bank on the Obama appointees never looking at the Constitution, they've already decided where they are going, they just need to find a way to get there. A few others are already in the bag, so it won't take much to bypass the Constitution and rule in your favor.



    Obviously, the Constitution guarantees nothing of the kind.
    This one won't be close. It will be 6-3 with only Scalia, Alito and Thomas on the wrong side of history.

    Only to libs can you be "on the wrong side of history" when your decision is 100% Constitutionally correct. Scalia is smarter than everyone else on the court combined, I think they she just let him make all the decisions. We would be so much better off.

    The general consensus? That's how you get things wrong, instead of just making the right decision. More like the cowards way out. "Well, everyone else said it was okay." I think slavery worked like that.

    And even Scalia saw the writing on the wall.

    “[W]hat justification could there possibly be for denying the benefits of marriage to homosexual couples exercising ‘the liberty protected by the Constitution’? Surely not the encouragement of procreation, since the sterile and the elderly are allowed to marry."

    LOL....next to Thomas, Scalia is probably the biggest idiot there in on the court.

    No they got it wrong because they let their personal beliefs and certain popular views of those times to decide their rulings, rather than the Constitution.

    Well, you've pretty much confirmed that you... Well, I don't have to write it for anyone that has a clue.

    Have you actually ever read one of Scalia's opinions? He writes the most convoluted opinions of anyone on the bench. Often I will get about a page into the opinion and say to myself...."This has to be Scalia"...then looking back to see who authored the opinion. 9 times out of 10...its Scalia. It is clear that he decides what he wants to decide and then goes through a whole convoluted diatribe explaining how he got there....so yes....Scalia probably is the biggest idiot on the court, next to Thomas.

    That's just ridiculous. Could be the most ridiculous post in the history of these boards! But keep going, you don't really have any credibility left to lose anyway. Oh, what's next, Ruth Buzzy is brilliant? You did a pretty good description of her. Gee, I bet she hasn't pre decided the case, LOL!
