    Anyone who founded the Federalist Society does not belong within 1,000 feet of a judges bench as its occupant.

    Apparently you want radical extremists who would repeal the 20th century on our courts as judges? The Federalist Society is one of the most anti-democratic and subversive organizations in modern American society. They are a huge threat to working Americans and anyone who cares about keeping our rights and our form of government.

    Perhaps that is why you took offense to my characterization of its founder?

    Your characterization that someone like Keisler-who won praise from lawyers and jurists on all sides-is unqualified to sit on a court because he founded an influential (maybe you ought to call up my old friend Akhil Reed Amar and ask him about Keisler-and ARA is hardly a conservative-he also is widely seen as the top constitutional scholar in the USA) rightwing legal society is partisan hackery at its worst

    far more qualified than say Kagan or RBG (when she was nominated for the CoA)

    its funny how many INTELLIGENT liberal legal scholars have appeared at Federalist SOciety meetings

    your silly rant is akin to saying Kgan should have been DQd because she worked for Obama

    The Federalist Society is part of the war on working people in America. The Federalist Society combines some of the worst aspects of conservatism and libertarianism and the marriage of the two produces a toxic extremism that would destroy America if their agenda would ever be realized.

    Turtle - are you now or have you ever been a member of the Federalist Society? I would think you share many of their beliefs, views, political positions and goals based on their website and your own posts here.

    ]

    I was actually asked to be a founding member-I was too busy coaching a varsity sport while attending law school

    Funny, the ABA listed both Estrada and Keisler as well qualified-their highest endorsement.

    so much for your rant

    No, your progressivism, which claims to be "for the working" people is what's destroying America.
    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.

    the massive deficits and a massive number of citizens addicted to entitlements are certainly caused by the attitude and policies of the party Haymarket works for

    I really believe haymarket thinks he's got the right of it, the problem is that he's so intoxicated by the idea of Government Saving us all, that he's blind to the problems, and how silly he comes across.
