    You are a textualist than. This means you belong to one of the schools of interpretation

    Words often have multiple meanings, so context is important.

    Take the word "invasion". It's taken out of context all the time. It's smack dab in the middle of a bunch of military terms, so one must assume that it's pretty obviously referring to a military invasion, but there are still some people who think it refers to farm hands and landscapers. Go figure.

    The Supreme court has already most non-protestant and too leftie judges from NYC and New Jersey. It is Joke if people like Elena Kagan without any experience can be nominated as judges.The court is being grown to one filial of Democratic party and act only in those interests. 90 % of U.S. are not represented there.

    I guess you don't research your opinions much, ehh?

    Obama Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has been criticized by some Republican senators for lacking judicial experience. But Justice Antonin Scalia, the High Court’s most outspoken conservative, said Wednesday that he likes that the former Harvard Law School dean and Solicitor General is not currently a judge.

    “When I first came to the Supreme Court, three of my colleagues had never been a federal judge,” said Scalia who joined the Court in 1986 after being nominated by President Reagan. “William Rehnquist came to the Bench from the Office of Legal Counsel. Byron White was Deputy Attorney General. And Lewis Powell who was a private lawyer in Richmond and had been president of the American Bar Association.”

    “Currently, there is nobody on the Court who has not served as a judge --indeed, as a federal judge -- all nine of us,” he continued. “. . . I am happy to see that this latest nominee is not a federal judge – and not a judge at all.”

    Scalia made his remarks about Kagan while delivering the Second Annual Judge Thomas A. Flannery Lecture.

    Flannery, who passed away in 2007, is a 1940 graduate of the Columbus School of Law which is now part of The Catholic University of America. The speech was delivered in the Ceremonial Courtroom at the United States Courthouse in Washington, D.C.
    Justice Scalia Praises Elena Kagan

    I'll bet Scalia is one of your heroes, right? So, waddaya think about his opinion of Kagan?

    Do you think Chief Judge Rehnquist was not qualified? How do you think he turned out?

    Your opinion is wrong:

    Kagan 'moderated' for group that honored radical 'gay'

    Rush Limbaugh vs. the Obama faction

    Obama's secular socialist legacy

    If you want I can continue to post more links. In any case nominating of Mrs. Kagan is a bad decision.

    Unconstitutional according to who?

    Oh, if only we had a panel of legal experts who could decide such things! A group of, say, nine such people who would have to be approved by the Senate first!

    I agree. We should get rid of that NYC Catholic Scalia.

    I didn't offer an opinion.

    I asked you several questions and you answered none of them.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
