    No surprise about the 5-4 ruling with Kennedy being the swing vote.
    This decision proves Sotomeyer is a racist. It validates the theory that Sotomeyer's racist ideology made her decision.

    I would say all of her cases needed to be re-opened and examined.

    Sotomayor is a racist. This fact alone should prevent her from being confirmed.

    By that same logic, every decision ever handed down by Breyer, Souter, Stevens, Ginsburg, Pooler, or Sack needs to be re-opened and examined.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    You couldn't arrive at that conclusion on your own?

    I did arrive at that conclusion ... when Sotomayor ruled against those firefighters.

    The SCOTUS just validated my claim.

    ....

    Yeah ... that is sort of a valid point.

    Even I have to admit you're making sense there.

    Oh well.

    Sotomayor got slapped across the face by the SCOTUS. I suppose that is enough.... for now!

    So, the SCOTUS can validate an individual's opinion by mere virtue of its opinion? Do you know what "an appeal to authority" is?

    Wonder if they will ask her during the hearing. I could just hear the senile old Robert Byrd ask "Miss Sotomayor are you a Colored Girl or are you one of them Injuns ?" . Anyhow could be interesting.
    Puerto Rican.

    This is my first post and it will be a question. First though, I will say that I agree with today's USSC decision.

    As I understand this case, New Haven threw out the test for fear of being sued. As a consequence of this decision, they were sued. So they had to defend themselves all of the way to the Supreme Court which must have cost alot of money. Here then is my question.

    Had the city decided to certify the test and then invested all of the money that has been consumed in legal expenses in meaninful training and skill improvement for the members of the Fire Department, might not all of New Haven citizens been better served?

    I must be missing something here so will appreciate any and all enlightenment.
    The fault lies in two places.

    The cowards at New Haven that caved in.

    The EEOC rules that claim, without any proof, that tests which demonstrate a distinct racial division in the results must in themselves be racially biased tests.

    Fact of the matter is, the test was for Fire Chief, and the rules of nature don't recognize any racially biased phycical laws governing fires. The 100% of the blacks failing that test failed that test for one reason, and one reason only.

    They didn't study enough.

    If there's a racial matter here, it's a question of why none of the black applicants bothered to study enough to pass the test.

    And the city of New Haven has no control over how long and how well it's test applicants study, and hence bore no fault for the results of the test.

    The city of New Haven is at fault because it simply failed to have the balls to stand up the overpowerful, majorly racist, left-wing political interest groups that make their living painting everyone with money a racist if they can get away with it.

    Sotomayor was clearly a racist, and it is good that she was overturned in this case.

    The lap-dog left-wing media is laying the groundwork for the next nominee, who might get to replace an honest, constitutionalist jurist, and failing that, they're greasing the skids to make it easier to slip in the next ultra-liberal, by continually depicting the court as extremely conservative and in dire need of "balance".

    Your side plays a nasty game and always keeps an eye to the long term.
