    We have a process for that. It can be modified. but once you "modify" it to prohibit the people (Such as prohibition) you have pretty much taken a deuce on it.

    Look, there's nothing wrong with supporting Kagan and I think she'll be fine on the court, but this is just ridiculous. I don't know who told you that she was some world-famous constitutional scholar, but they didn't know what they were talking about. She's smart and very talented in her field (which is not constitutional law), but that doesn't mean you should just make up superlatives about her simply because they sound good.

    Did any of you happen to catch Charlie Rose last night? They had a discussion on her.

How is it that she's qualified to hold the highest judge ship position in the country? She's a total wild card with no past history ... and there's probably a reason non-judges weren't approved for the past 40 years. Rehnquist had a fairly long history as a lawyer and associate judge - more than 1 year in an administration before going to the SCOTUS.

    I'm just not understanding her qualifications for the job - and a very important job. Unless of course the qualifications are to be an activist on the court... which she may or may not be.
    What's not to understand? Obama needs friends in high places to forward, and sustain his wickedly dishonest progressive agenda.

    Have you noticed...out of the box...the left is "complaining" that she's too "centrists". A new strategy I'm detetecting here...but, just the same old blatant lies, and intellectual dishonesty to insure "social justice" for all on the backs of the few.

    Never, ever trust a leftist...they're morally bankrupt, and will look you in the eye as they lie about and obfuscate their "progressive" (communist) plans for America.

    Fair enough, I just wish the media and liberals would be so honest and just admit it.

    Well sure, Che could be appointed posthumously and the left would cringe and whine about how the guy is just too lively and conservative. I've noticed full blow moonbat progressives calling themselves centrists or "moderates" for years.

    Well, they're just like anyone else. Some you can have honest debate and discussion and others are dizzy ****ers who probably walk down the street in sandwich boards mumbling to themselves when they're not posting here. There are some very nice and good Democrats and liberals. It's the Progressives I just can't understand.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I guess he's taking a page from the Rove/Cheney playbook. With those two, it's hard to say who's more evil and corrupt.

    Ironic how you're so bothered by lies and damn lies when your boy W. lead us into a war over a lie.

    $900 billion pissed away 4700 Americans dead and that doesn't bother you in the least, but the left building up a supreme court nomination by a Democratic president and you've got your panties in a bundle...

    Never, ever trust a leftist...they're morally bankrupt, and will look you in the eye as they lie about and obfuscate their "progressive" (communist) plans for America.
    Lookiing back over the last decade, I'd say you've got it all backwards. The righties and neo-con men have been screwing you left and right. Scumbaggery of the highest order and the GOP-Fox News sheep just get down on their knees and lap it up like a bunch of dogs...

    Sickening, really.

    I agree somewhat about the a few Dems and Libs...unfortunately, most of those I think you are referring...the life long bluedogs and JFK variety, are completely unaware that "thier party" has been hijacked by a cabal of communist progressives.

    That's what education is about.

    However, since you asked....I'll give you a clue. It has to do with putting forth an important governmental interest that justifies the differential treatment.

    Its not that hard to educate yourself if you want to take a litle time to look into it.
    funny when I said the same thing to some barking loon about an issue everyone knows is true, I was told that I had to provide proof (that blacks commit more crimes than whites I believe)

    so using the lib standards I suggest you post up or be considered a liar as I was told.

    and tell me how my analysis is faulty. The law says a man may marry a woman. IF we get into whether there is an attraction what is an objective standard soon morphs into a subjective one.

    "moderate"...perhaps your vision for America would be useful as I am new here....moderates that I know are fence sitters and breeze riders....

    Do you have any convictions at all?

    C'mon Erod...lets be intellectually honest here. There is no large scale attempt to ban hunting rifles and handguns..
    compete crap. There have been massive efforts to ban handguns by the left and Obama supported a complete handgun ban at one point. Lefty gun banners have been calling for restrictions on "sniper rifles" as well and many of the definitions are inclusive of almost all centerfire hunting rifles with scopes.

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coalition_to_Stop_Gun_Violence]Coalition to Stop Gun Violence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    1974, the United Methodist General Board of Church and Society formed the National Coalition to Ban Handguns,[1] a group of thirty religious, labor, and nonprofit organizations with the goal of addressing "the high rates of gun-related crime and death in American society" by licensing gun owners, registering firearms, and banning private ownership of handguns with "reasonable limited exceptions" for “police, military, licensed security guards, antique dealers who have guns in unfireable condition, and licensed pistol clubs where firearms are kept on the premises.”[2][3] In the 1980s and 1990s, the coalition grew to 44 member groups.[4] In 1989, the National Coalition to Ban Handguns changed its name to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, in part because the group felt that "assault rifles" as well as handguns, should be outlawed.[


    VPC - Handgun Ban Fact Sheet

    homicides, suicides, and unintentional shootingsï are carried out with easily concealable pistols and revolvers. The public health model as well as the traditional approaches employed in protecting consumer health and safety lead to one inevitable conclusion: handguns should be banned
