    When has the court "made policy," please some evidence. In Brown vs Board of Education, the court simply struck down an unconstitutional law. As is their job. They protect the minority from the majority.

    That's not eh JOB of the courts. That's a legislative duty.

    The courts, especially the SCOTUS is there to take a law, and judge it against the Constitution, nothing more, nothing less.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I certainly don't like her ruling in the New Haven case.

    Affirmative action in promotions is retarded.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Uh, right and they do so in order to make sure that state or federal laws do not infringe upon rights. That IS protecting the people.

    I have read that case and cannot defend it. I support limited abortion rights, but the argument made by the court was indeed weak.

    Re: Obama to pick Sotomayer for Supreme Court

    Legislating from the bench is a no no but, according to Rush, she sees it as her prerogative.

    In addition, he calls her a reverse racist.

    Limbaugh calls Sotomayor "a reverse racist," appointed by "the greatest living example of a reverse racist" | Media Matters for America

    I don't know much about her, but according to the article she is experienced enough for the role. They also bring up an interesting tidbit....

    Thoughts?
    Well this decision doesn't affect me at all but it will be very interesting to watch confirmation process for the first time. I do like her but just from reading this thread, i can see not everyone is excited about this pick.
