    Then of course the 'wasting taxpayer money' is trotted out when it seems the GOP and 'conservatives' spend endless taxpayer dollars voting to repeal Obamacare (Boehner says don't judge the House on new laws passed but on the number they repeal- so far they seem unable to do either) or endless cycle of states passing laws the courts strike down and then the follow-on appeals that change nothing but the amount of OUR money spent.

    But it is nice to see their constant tirade of 'activist' judges supporting government over reach gets a, if only temporary, sock in it...

    It's the total intellectual bankruptcy of conservatism. Look at turtle's post -- I was quoting him!

    feel free to find a quote. Someone who claims to be as intelligent as you do should have no trouble finding one of my posts since October 2012 that complains about "activist" judges

    actually ... he knew better than that in NY ... soda you might get away with, but pizza? he knew better ... that's like the Mayor of Philly saying, "O.K., I want to limit the size of Cheese Steaks."

    Do you believe any court ruling to be appropriate?

    It's not an improper term necessarily, though it is often misused, like many which require complex consideration. It's absurd to say a judge can't make a decision on personal opinion as opposed to the law, thought it's also absurd to say any ruling which does not fit your beliefs is judicial activism.
