    The constitution covers that pretty well.

    We ARE all equal.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is ridiculous.
    Actually I don't believe that all parts of our government were to be equal.
    Congress was supposed to have more power than the rest.

    Just nitpicking.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Actually, while there is a system of checks and balances and separation of powers in our government, nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the different branches of government are equal with each other. If that was the case, the powers the presidency have assumed would be drastically cut back.

    The Constitution doesn't say how much power each branch should have. Sometimes Congress is the dominant branch. Sometimes the Presidency is the dominant branch. A few times the Supreme Court brings the power of both down a few notches. But the Constitution never explicitly states, which isn't so bad since it gives our country's government the freedom it needs to effectively operate.

    I see little evidence of this. Unfortunately equality before the law has issues because of things like those with more resources being able to afford more/better lawyers in a civil case or in the case of free speech, someone with a megaphone has more speech over someone who can only shout. Right now those with more power are able to run rough-shod over those with less. This supreme court decision will simply make it worse.

    Having more money or resources is great, but everyone should have access to the basics, or else we do not have a truly free society.

    Oh look, its you making idioticly ludicrous statements again. What a surprise.

    Would you care to explain how you reach such an absurd conclussion, or would you rather just throw out trollish one liners which appears to be your MO?

    I disagree. You claim that he is arrogant because he criticizes a branch of "our, of the people government".

    If everybody thought like you we would be doomed.
