    It's politics, stuff like this happens on both sides. But I would like to know from Hay, what is so destructive about having conservatives on the court. Does he believe that the courts should only be made up of one ideology? Or, is there room for all ideas out there?

    Not going to speak for Hay, but imo opinion I think that it is packed now too far to the right. Do we agree that law should not have any slant, be it right, or left?

    The only "slant" should be toward upholding the Constitution. However, it is a long gone pipe dream to think that politics of the Justices involved don't play a part.

    Yes its sad that we have Supremes going hunting with Vice President cheney before hearing a case involving cheney at the time of the hunt.Then we have the same Supreme giving tea party…somethings, law classes. Kinda looks kinda slanted to me.

    I see, so it's only those conservatives that appear this way to you?

    I'll jump in here. The worse case I've ever seen from the Supreme Court, Kelo vs City of New London. The liberals on the SC ruled that any government entity can take private property by simply claiming that the city will profit from the seizure. Prior to this ruling, the government could only take land for its own use, not a private company.

    That ruling sure did suck but it was hardly an ideological ruling, considering that Judge Sandra Day O,Connor wrote the principle dissent in the case, joined by Chief Justice Rehnquist, Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas.

    I know I'm late to this thread, but if any 2 justices have a conflict of interest here, it's Sotomayor and Kagan since the court will be ruling on the legality of a law supported and passed by the man who appointed them.
