    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    My point is that it clearly demonstrates that your understanding of the Supreme Court, which you claimed you needed to educate others about, was sadly mistaken. This was made obvious by the fact that you refused to so much as acknowledge mention of the case until I called you on it several times.

    Not that I have a side that I am agreeing with on this discussion, but at no point have you pointed out any specific ruling or quote that proves your point. I like details.

    You're responding to a post about Marbury v. Madison, but it sounds like you're talking about my argument on natural law... ?

    that's nice.

    mean while, the Constitution IS the Supreme Law of the Land, and Congress has the responsibility to sometimes interpate the meaning & intent of the laws in the Constitution.

    if they didn't, then we would have NO guide....which means anarchy.

    Apparently it was hard for you to swallow, seeing as how you took so long to get around to it. If you want to pretend to brush it off, that's fine.

    Really? Congress? Where in the Constitution do you find that they have any such responsibility?

    No, though I did enjoy our brief discussion of natural law, I would like to hear your interpretation of Marbury v. Madison.

    It was Thunder's assertion that the authority of judicial review was assigned to the Supreme Court by the Constitution. This is not true. This is an authority that the Supreme Court itself decided it had.

    The most important part of Marbury v. Madison -- as with many other Supreme Court cases -- wasn't about the central issue of the case. The case had to do with judicial appointments made by Adams his last day in office that were not delivered before his term as President expired.
