It now sees itself as social engineers, charged with making the hard decisions that a divided America is too fractured to make politically. That's wrong.

    And if Chief Justice Roberts wasn't so tragically conflicted and idiotic, he'd be comical. He's spent two years ignoring the constitution and the letter of the law to manufacture two majority decisions related to the ACA and he has the gall to criticize the majority in the same sex marriage ruling for making a decision that has nothing to do with the constitution and is just a feel good move. The man should resign or be impeached before he can do any more harm.
    You think that the Supreme Court developed such tendencies only recently?

    It has always had the power to implement social change since day one of this countries history.

    You're Canadian. Obviously you're opinions are worthless in this context.
    I appreciate you're upset that I called your question stupid, but at least try not to have a hissy fit and try to understand the point made in my comments without throwing up a totally irrelevant strawman that had nothing to do with my argument.

    The fact that I'm Canadian only proves that I'm Canadian. Even a Canadian can see how asinine the question in this thread is.

    Where is the "I am going to set myself on fire because of the SCOTUS ruling" option?

    I have been married thirty years and still going strong. The only regret is knowing that the field of possibilities could have been twice as large.... no one told me I could have had things that were behind door number 2.

    I agree, it has over time done so. I just find it does so blatantly now. The decisions handed down the last couple of days will be mocked by future historians as they research and teach the law and the Supreme Court.

    This thread is NOT about SCOTUS and it's flaws or deficiencies. You're derailing the thread.

    This thread is about a decision that SCOTUS made and the gazillions of infantile comments made over the last few years about the "definition of marriage" and "traditional marriage" and how life as we know it will change if SSM gets national approval.

    Stick to topic, or start your own new topic. Or go listen to some Rush.

    Yes... They will be mocking the judicial interpretations exhibited by justices Alito and Scalia..
