    Before we get to over the top...

    Being against a military policy is not anti-military. I am against DADT too.

    There is to the best of my knowledge no proof she is gay, and a friend of hers has called her strait(or so it was reported on TV today). Her orientation is also entirely irrelevant.

    Her religious beliefs are entirely irrelevant unless there is evidence they would effect her rulings.

    She has about as much experience as roughly 1/3 of the justices in our history have had.

    Do you have any problems with anything actually affecting her ability to do the job properly, or just hysterics?

    Hysterics? Precious.

    Actually am a big fan of the Jews. It's an Israeli/bible thingy. Am pretty neutral on the whole gay issue/topic. The evidence on Kagan being gay seems to be leaning that way. Whether that would have an impact on her decision making, couldn't really say. As far as the anti-military, her "policy position" on the Army recruiters being taken to the Supreme Court (and btw..losing 8-0) would suggest to me she may have some deep rooted dislike. Just a guess...no proof.

    She likely will be confirmed. And she may turn out to be a fine judge. But she does have a somewhat unconventional profile compared to other modern day selections.

    hence, Land of Opportunity, eh...???!!

    Oh no, do we have another two years of people demanding to see her (or his) birth certificate?

    No, they would probably want to see her sex organ.

    Do you realize how seldom I pray? As in never. You've driven me to it.

    No, I will admit that there is no formal encompassing conservative judicial movement, like a club with members and a treasurer and chairman. Your Brilliance has cowed me!! You've Got Me!!

    If you need me to inform you about Scalia's position among Constitutional thinkers, his influence and the respect afforded to him ... well, it just says all that need be said, really. Unless you're just doing a really good job of playing dumb.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    While you might be interested enough... I tend to leave cross dressers alone.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
