    every judge is going to have a bad decision once in a while. you ought to solicit the opinions of people who have actually argued in front of that court (no I have not, but several people I discuss legal matters with have)

    LOL-so you have argued before the USSC or you are an attorney who regularly practices federal appellate law? or just a far left socialist who doesn't like his opinions since he doesn't have much use for collectivist welfare redistributionist socialism?

    How did this punk ever become a judge? He looks like Lou Costello as a mean drunk.

    Hey Abboooooott!

    More lies. How did he become a justice

    lets see

    he was first in every school he graduated from including yes HARVARD LAW SCHOOL

    he was a court of appeals judge where he developed a reputation as hiring as clerks, the smartest available students. That is why so many of his clerks ended up on the USSC and many have become major league appellate judges or professors. Including the two smartest judges on the Sixth Circuit

    try again. And remind me-you claimed to be an attorney. How many federal appellate cases have you argued. Me-a couple dozen and several of them were before at least one judge who clerked for Scalia

    He's not comparing homosexuality with murder.

    Anyone who can compare homosexuality to murder, or justifying using the state to judge, rate, and block business's from selling video games(Why is he not a statist for supporting that?) based on mid-1600 parenting techniques is a dumbass. Sorry, it's just the truth.

    That's a bit hard to do seeing as it was Scalia that authored the majority opinion striking down the law.

    No judicial temperament at all. A judge not only has to be unbiased he has to appear to be unbiased. That's very important for the public to have trust in the judiciary. Scalia is a scab on the high court.

    Re: Justice Scalia compares homosexuality to murder.

    I know you are an attorney and I accept your thoughts and respect them. Is Scalia brilliant and well-versed? Yes. Is he a total right-wing asshole? Yes.

    I'm arguing for court neutrality here. I've only once taken a case to SCOTUS and won half and lost half. That sure as **** gives me no expertise but my opinion of Scalia and his parrot stands.

    Respectfully,

    Re: Justice Scalia compares homosexuality to murder.

    I respectfully disagree. Seems to be used that way.

    “If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?"

    Several in fact. But this thread is not about my superior lawyering skills and your fetish for personalizing everything, but rather Scalia's thuggery and lack of judicial termperament.

    Frankly a judge that compares a group of people to murderers because of their sexual orientation should be impeached on grounds of utmost stupidity.
