These four men REQUIRE that you vote for Obama

John Roberts +
Antonin Scalia +
Clarence Thomas +
Samuel Alito

If you don’t believe them,
…….ask Newt Gingrich or John McCain about Citizens United
OR
…….ask the family of any soldier killed in Iraq about bush v Gore

OR

Are you afraid to
……tell me why supreme court appointments make no difference ?
……tell me why ( roberts + alito ) = ( sotomayor & kagan ) ?


If you cannot see the difference between the democrats and the Rs –
.……and believe that President Gore would invade Iraq, …….or that President Gore would NOT read his PDBs –
…………..………………………………………………..you are blind


If you want to do what Davis & Lee failed to do
……………..……………………………………….…….you are crazy


Just because Scalia and Thomas take koch brothers money – you don’t have to

Would I believe that president Gore would invade iraq? I have no way of knowing. I do know for a fact that president Obama would bomb Libya.

This is one of the reasons I'll be voting for Obama (notwithstanding many reservations with his policies). At least in the case in the Sotomayor, it was an excellent pick (Kagan didn't really have any judicial history, although so far so good).

don't tell anyone, but I have an anti-Obama list - but I have a library of anti-R lies and thefts, etc, etc

What does that have to do with bombing Libya?

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

It was one of the questions I asked in my post
I never mentioned Libya

kagan , a solicitor general, argued FOR obamacare. she was then appointed to the supreme court,......and is sitting in judgement on the constitutionality of obamacare. she should have recused herself.

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

It was Kagan's job to do what she was told to do regardless of her OPINION -
THAT is what LAWYERS DO


ms. thomas IS a lobbyist and her husband ( justice thomas ) hid her income from her teaparty/healthcare activities when he filed a disclosure. if lying about a private sex act gets you impeached, what about lying on a public disclosure document


She started as a congressional aide in the 1980s, became a midlevel Republican operative, then briefly left politics, reemerging in 2009 as founder of a tea party group before stepping down amid continued questions about whether her actions were appropriate for the spouse of a Supreme Court justice.

Now, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, has recast herself yet again, this time as the head of a firm, Liberty Consulting, which boasts on its website using her “experience and connections” to help clients “with “governmental affairs efforts” and political donation strategies. Thomas already has met with nearly half of the 99 GOP freshmen in the House and Senate, according to an e-mail she sent last week to congressional chiefs of staff, in which she branded herself “a self-appointed, ambassador to the freshmen class and an ambassador to the tea party movement.”

But her latest career incarnation is sparking controversy again.

Thomas’s role as a de facto tea party lobbyist and — until recently — as head of a tea party group that worked to defeat Democrats last November “show a new level of arrogance of just not caring that the court is being politicized and how that undermines the historic image of the Supreme Court as being above the political fray,” said Arn Pearson, a lawyer for Common Cause, the left-leaning government watchdog group.

“It raises additional questions about whether Justice Thomas can be unbiased and appear to be unbiased in cases dealing with the repeal of the health care reform law or corporate political spending when his wife is working to elect members of the tea party and also advocating for their policies.”

Even among congressional Republicans, with whom Thomas boasts she has close ties, the reaction to the entreaties from her new firm, Liberty Consulting ranged from puzzlement to annoyance, with a senior House Republican who provided Thomas’s e-mail to POLITICO, blasting her for trying to “cash in” on her ties to the tea party movement.

Mrs. Thomas is not a supreme court justice, Ms Kagan is. Mrs. Thomas did not argue ( on the behalf of the govt) for obama care not FOR obama care, Ms. Kagan did

[-] 2 points by bensdad (8977) 2 years ago

mr thomas LIED on a government disclosure
what else has he LIED about ?
If Justice Smith's wife worked for Pharma, should Justice Simth recuse himself when a case involving Amgen comes to the court?

[-] -1 points by takim (23) 2 years ago

what was the lie? justice "smiths'" wife is NOT the justice. justice "smith" is . Ms Kagen is a justice and SHE argued on behalf of the govt for obama care. NOT the same thing at all..

Gore was not made President BECAUSE he would not invade Iraq.

[Removed]

[-] -1 points by Freewillnotfreestuff (-5) 2 years ago

No, it was because he couldn't win the election.

[-] 3 points by Shule (2030) 2 years ago

Actually he did win the election. The judges just negated it.

Too bad many on this forum cannot grasp this plain truth and get over themselves and the bi-party baiting.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

You mean like you not getting the plain truth of this very thread?

In that case. I know what you mean.............:)

[-] -1 points by PretendHitGirI (13) 2 years ago

Idiot and Federalist shill.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Insults?????

No analysis?

Jerking knee?

Yes!

[-] -2 points by PretendHitGirI (13) 2 years ago

Facts, no less.

You've labeled yourself a "federalist" and it's clear you are no more than a DNC shill constantly spewing your bi-party rhetoric.

It's also clear by your incessant post whoring to ad nauseam that you can't wait for the chitlin celebration you'll have when you reach 6000 and lemmings will just have to believe you are the voice of the 99%.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

No YOU labeled me. I tend to reject labels placed on me, this one included.

I'm flattered by your level of jealousy.........:)

Perhaps if you stopped pretending and made more informative posts, with a lot fewer lame insults, you could keep up.

[-] -1 points by PretendHitGirI (13) 2 years ago

So how about I prove you wrong multiple times?

Surely you know you LOVE labeling any and all!

You do it many time every day that you literally LIVE on this forum!

Maybe you forgot labeling yourself as a federalist.

Not that it matters either way, you are what you are and it's very clear to anyone objective.

What's sad is I know you are a pathological liar..... and so do many others.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

OK. What label placed on me did I tend not to reject?

I said I believed in strong efficient central government. somebody else hung a label on me.

The thread and it's title are still very true. You just refuse to deal with it's subject.

What kind of label should you hang on yourself for that belief?

I would still like to know why you "chose" a user name as an insult to another poster.

How objective and honest is that? Not very.

[-] -2 points by PretendHitGirI (13) 2 years ago

You make it a matter of course DAILY to label all others.

YOU labeled yourself, on this very forum, as a "federalist".

I agree that you are and regardless of how corrupt BOTH SIDES are, you are nothing other than a shill and a mindless pawn to support the actions of either party and DC too.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

So, why did you"chose" a user name as an insult to another poster?

Who were you before you did that?

It would seem you're the true shill.

[-] -2 points by PretendHitGirI (13) 2 years ago

You played with too many broken thermometers on hot days and it's a shame your mother probably broke them for you.

I'm certain I've not infringed on anyone's legal rights to any names. Do you have a fixation on alpha-numeric sequences? What does it matter on this forum if a name ISN'T attached and associated to a flesh and blood live human? Is "shooz" your real name? Have you trademarked it?

Meanwhile, you practice your small minded and simple DNC shilling insults on any and all who disagree with any of your DNC talking points.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Whatever.

I'm just sayin'.
