    All they are doing is pandering. Its insulting, at least to me, that someone only snuggles up to you to get a vote.
    The group is not what the "right" is attempting to portray is as....I'm not suprised.

    I know what you are saying, but as long as we pick our presidents based on a popularity contest(ie, an election), it's inevitable. And I can't think of a system I would prefer.

    They are certainly dumbassing themselves into a corner.

    You and I probably won't agree on a lot of things but I dislike Sotomayor mainly because she, like many other political picks, implies that she will use emotion when deciding cases.

    In deciding law, emotion must be left out. Law exists to separate emotional reactions from rational reactions.

    A comparison would be a lynch mob killing someone because they want justice now when they haven't reviewed if that person even did the deed.

    I don't agree with universal voting rights. Voting is a privilege that people should earn and it should not be given out so freely.

    Since it is handed out for nothing people treat it as such.
    They don't research a candidates principals and just take them at their word when it may not even be logically possible.
    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.

    This is a discussion forum, not monster.com. We aren't looking for people's resumes here...we're looking for their opinions.
    Well, considering that I have sat on a "court" and judged, I think I can speak from experience. Thank you very much.

    It is stunning to me how many of you people THINK you have an understanding of applying facts to laws and think that there's only one way to interpret the law. If that was the case, we wouldn't need a Supreme Court or the Supreme Court rulings would all be 9-0.

    This is what I have been trying to say, but no one believes me.

    No one wants to believe you. Redress, it is just amazing to me to listen to Limbaugh, Gingrich, and other stupid GOPers and re-read what they say on this message board. It's like people don't have the ability to analyze facts--just repeat what others have said. I don't get it. Help me understand.

    This is on La Raza's homepage...their mission statement and answer to their critics.

    A letter to the public.

    National Council of La Raza: Viewpoints

    Not quite the "racist" group that the "right" is making them out to be.

    There is only one way to interpret the law--only one correct way.

    That correct way is the way of Marbury v Madison--which examined the case, considered the applicable laws, weighed the statutory laws against the Constitution of the United States, and viewed the case objectively in light of what the law says. That correct way is to state with specificity what the law is, what the law allows, within the confines of the Constitution, and leave the notional questions of moral right and moral wrong to the legislatures.

    There is most assuredly one correct manner of interpretation. To argue or pretend otherwise is simply wrong.

    You should really go back and read my link on page 19 was it? The people who wrote are named, and the Senator it was Sent to is named.

    You should really read links before posting.

    Now hold on there!!! Only conservatives can be racists. Genie Garabuffalo stated so about the tax tea party's saying it was only about whites HATING the black president and so logically anything said about the Cisco Senorita is yet another racist crack from stupid rednecks. Don't forget about how anti-hispanic GWB was.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
