SCOTUS Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently opined on Egyptian TV, that if she were going to write a constitution [for a new country], she would NOT use the US Constitution as a model.

This serves to demonstrate that, possibly, liberal SCOTUS Justices, do not know much about anatomy. ANATOMY??---Yes--she obviously does not know her anus from an aperature in the terra firma!!

It was a good one till you'r Ginsburg revelation.. Why is it we always say the most important thing that POTUS does is nominate and fill SCOTUS seats.. I'm with Newt, their needs to be judicial revue.. Two Democratic Presidents in a row and those eight years could fill 4 seats, and leave the door wide open to just about anything.. The new (think it's jack's) fast food commercial where the guy marries his cheeseburger..

UPI .. The State of CA announced this morning that as of Feb 20th the proposed amendment to allow marriage between humans and food has been passed.. A number of fast food outlets have been closed due to running out of stock..

Even though an amendment to the constitution might be necessary, named and congressionally vetted SCOTUS candidates should be finally confirmed by a national referendum.

has been virtually untouchable for decades should be put on notice by their rightful overseers that their liberal horseshit won't fly. The Supreme Court does not convene on Mt Olympus, they are not gods they are employees on the federal payroll answerable to their employers...US, You & Me through our elected representatives, Congress. When we have had enough of the Supreme Court's liberal miscarriages impeach them.
Have a nice day :<)

it seems more difficult to impeach a SCOTUS Judge , than it is to impeach the president. But I doubt, in any case, that the citizenry could expect a possible impeachment , beause of a ruling they did not like, or because of a long-term record of opinions a majority of the citizenry found highly objectionable or even possibly questionable from a constitutional standpoint. I think they enjoy absolute immunity for anything done in the line of duty, but could be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors. Impeachment means tried, as opposed to automatic removal from office, simply because there has been an accusation.

level of a "high Crime".
No, I am not so naive as to believe there will be an impeachment of a justice anytime soon, the attitude of "we the people" has to change dramatically, read pitchforks and torches, before that will happen.
Never the less that tool is in Congress' tool box. Another route is to do it the hard way with constitutional amendments. Much easier to call a supreme court justice infront of congress and have them explain to the whole country why it is a "right" for a woman and her "doctor" to murder a baby.
It would be harder to justify clinical murder standing infront of 300 million Americans who at their most basic level disagree with Roe v Wade.

factually, absolute immunity is in force for any action taken in the line of a SCOTUS Judge's duty.. That ruling you refer to was arrived at "in the line of duty" by the Judges on the court who heard Roe v Wade. Therefore it cannot be legally considered a high Crime or Misdemeanor. The only way to "bell the cat" is legislation.

NB: I do not support Roe v Wade,.

the doctrine of absolute immunity came about, but I will study on it.

My thoughts

First of all, I hope that Ginsberg burns in the deepest bowels of hell. She has clearly shown, through her opines and dissents, that she hates the Republic and despises its constitution.

As to the judges' immunity, I feel this was one of the areas our founders flubbed. To their credit, I believe, due to their time period, they thought that any appointees would be educated, intelligent men and therefore would be impartial and reasonable. I also believe that they felt any decisions made that blatantly defied any reasonable interpretation of this revered document would be met with either congressional impeachment (the one legislative check against the SCOTUS) or public reprisal. More to the latter later.

Indeed, I would argue that our founders intended for the current system to have been replaced long ago, and that this was a shakedown trial. And that we, the people, should have long ago, stormed the capitol demanding a Constitutional Convention.

It has become the worst kept secret that the modern SCOTUS is no longer about upholding the Constitution and keeping the other branches in check as much as it is to "stack the bench" and provide an end-around to pushing an agenda through improper channels.

Again, I think the power brokers have become entrenched in our government. They have learned after millenia that the general populace DOES hold the power, but is too ignorant to recognize this. And that, too quickly pressed power grabs and over-reaches end empires. But, if you keep the masses content JUST enough to make it uncomfortable to revolt, and too ignorant to know when to, you can milk the cow indefinitely.

Fortunately for us, these despots typically get power hungry, which blinds their reason and eventually, they over-reach. The question is, how long will we wait until we decide enough is enough? They can be over-ruled at the end of a rifle. But to be honest (and ashamed), I also am too comfortable to want that at this point.

But food for thought.

You guys are amazing!

Damn Guys....All I have to do is just shut up and read what you guys post! I have only been with you guys a few days and am so much more educated than i was! Intellectual thought as well as titties! all in the same place.... Now that's what America is truly about. Doesn't it just sadden you to learn that a Supreme court justice would say such rubbish? the faster this administration is gone the better! Everyone of you guys bring very valued points in this discussion,each with relevance it is scary to think of which we speak.surly she should be reprimanded in some way. or at least apologize for what she has said? out of touch and Un American! Is this the Change we were promised with the bench stacking Obama?

Nothing like a compliment to warm the cockles of our respective hearts .. Not exactly sure what a "cockle" is but figure that should warm it..

For what it's worth you have hit on the main reason most of us come here..it's free...

Sorry, give a guy a slow one inside and he'll swing every time.. We come here because the collective Intel of our little net hang out is on a par with the best blogs out there.. We all sorta stick together.. Some of the guys are expert black rifle types, some of us are hand gunners, some of us collect. all of us enjoy humor, camaraderie, and those things unique to being a guy.

We might be more conservative than average, and a couple guys are a little to the right of old Genghis..

But whats really important..The glue that binds us.. Thats easy.. We love Opera.. It's our passion, and what holds us all together as a group.. That and being smart arse's

Anyway.. welcome aboard.. Join in any thread, or re post any you have a comment on..

The US Constitution scares the hell out of many countries, and a bunch of US Citizens too!

Otherwise they wouldn't spend so damn much time trying to change it to suit their goals...

Thanks for the Welcome

I enjoy the Opera as well..finding out who can hit the highest note?. and elusive challenge. I'm just glad there are still like minded people out there is refreshing in itself! I use to think that the German people were a bunch of liars....saying they didn't know what the Nazis where all about as they grew in power. But i have seen it in America how mob mentality over takes a country...my bad.You do it by changing the laws and the ethics of a nation..subtlety at first then you pour it on at the last and come in at and by all directions....hope and change my ass...this is nothing more than a hostile takeover of a country from within.using our own laws against us. I maybe wrong....lol but I Digress

I believe that most politician's have the capacity to make use of Hitlers Political Game Book when dealing with people, and do. To different extremes and for different goals, but almost always the same process to a degree.

Push peoples fear button, give them a target and tell them that your the one and only answer and it really doesn't matter if it is the truth or not because if they hear it often enough. They will start accepting it as the truth.

Hell, why do you think so many Politicians say things or lies are told and then act like a child and try to say " it was taken out of context ", or they have others do it so they can say "I never said that"

Once something is said in public, it gets repeated, once repeated enough it doesn't matter if it is the truth or not, facts or not, real or not, it takes on a life of it's own. If you have enough people who wish it was the truth, fact or real, well then it's Gospel and a reason to band together with a cause.....

Social Cognition is a tool used for and against the people or the world by those that are looked at like they are Parents. Our leaders, and who thinks there Parents would do them harm? (plenty but it is not the norm, or it is more normal than most would suspect, but never spoken and most of those people are not part of the process because of conditioned apathy)...
