    Why? You wouldn't find it ironic that in the hight of the gay agenda, the most left wing President in our time, nominated a person on the simple fact that /heshe is gay to try and continue to mainstream being gay?

    What is the woman's qualifications to be a Supreme Court judge? I know they can pretty much throw anybody up there they want to, but come on, who does such a thing, unless they are completing a backroom promise or pushing an agenda?

    He sure as hell didn't nominate here based on merit, b/c she has no experience in judgeship.

    So, if the tables were turned and only gay marriages were allowed, heterosexual people would have equal protection under the law because any man could marry any man they wanted to (and any woman any woman she wanted to)? You REALLY believe this is how equal protection works?
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    About 1/3 of all Supreme Court Justices have had not been judges. Apparently it is not a qualification. Her orientation is no ones business but her own, and no one is making any kind of deal about it, but you. So much for that line of argument...

    So now the liberal staple is that sexual orientation isn't an issue anymore? Ok, we will see how long that lasts.

    I would argue that expecting a document that was written over 200 years ago to have been a crystal ball which could interpret the issues that present themselves today is foolish.






    Really? Why? Is Liberty and natural law changed by the whim of current society?


    It has nothing to do with a "Crystal ball". Just admit, you don't agree with the USC. That's fine and all, but don't try to mold a document recognizing inalienable rights, as something that can be used to take from one to give to another, ala healthcare for example. It's simply not there.


    Just like I think a marriage amendment is retarded, so do I think, re-interpreting what the founders intent was to re-define natural rights is just as retarded.

    Freedom is a bitch.

    You will see their anti-gay social agenda come out vigorously in this confirmation.

    The one issue other than abortion that the right-wingers care about is preventing gays from enjoying civil rights.....just watch...they will show their colors loud and clear.



    I'm fairly right wing, no?



    Does this describe me?

    She's only probably one of the most educated Constitutional scholars in the country...I guess you would call that "no expertise".

    The reality is, many of the best Supreme Court judges have not been Judges prior to the appointment.

    Funny that those crying the loudest about lack of experience were deathly silent during Rhenquist's reign as Chief Justice....hmmmmmm wonder why.

    Hey....I'm not happy with the selection for my own reasons. She's waaaaaay too moderate for me. However, saying that she isn't qualified is simply laughable.
