    No, since the people are footing the bill, the people lose too. The only way the people can win is if the politicians have to pay back the taxpayers for the money they wasted out of their own pockets.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No, just the vapid reasoning of conservatives as it relates to constitutional interpretations. The term "activist judges" -- invented by conservatives (and used by Turtle by his own admission above) -- is intellectually dishonest. It's another reason why conservatism is bankrupt.

    YOur fixation on a term I have not used in reference to the judges in this matter is just more proof of your goal here being to bait other posters and to post complete idiocy

    Any tendency of a judge to use personal opinion vs law would be negated by the appeals process which uses panels of judges in the higher courts. What impressed me about 'conservatives' is when a decision goes against their beliefs it is a vast tyrannical plot which includes out of control, unelected Supremes shredding the Constitution..... yada yada yada.....

    The appeals courts smacks down restricting soda size the 'liberals' mostly just shrug and continue on with life. No diva rants about the end of the Republic, vast liberal take-over, the Takers have won, the courts need to be overthrown! Oh and when a 'conservative' state/governmental body appeals it is to right a wrong- costs be damned, when a 'liberal' group does it is a waste of taxpayer money

    The earliest reference to judicial activism I can find is Schlesinger in 1947, who was a New Deal advocate, a speech writer for JFK, and an active participant in Ted Kennedy's presidential bid. Of course, the first American historical reference to the idea was Jefferson's criticism of "Judicial Despotism," but he didn't use the literal term so we'll set it aside.

    Well, it's not really a conservative phenomenon, considering the responses Citizens United and Gore V Bush generated.

    As I acknowledged earlier, people tend to imply judicial activism in decisions they don't like.
