If one of those ( over 100 ) prisoners he pardoned does one crime in which one person is harmed, I hope someone hunts that asshole down and does him justice.

Seriously, it is beyond the pale that someone could pull such a thing on his way out the door. Same with the Presidential Pardon process, it should be against the law, period.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Why does the court system not have revue.. know it does at the appeal levil, but Newts point was that there's revue on Legislative, and Executive branches, why not Judicial.. Fact is the law can and HAS been changed by challenges to SCOUSA.. There is no way in the world that our founders would have foreseen a time when "in God we trust" would come under attack.. All it takes is a few liberal judicial placements.. and the world is turned upside down..

There (SCOUSA) hearing a case today that has to do with our moraes as a Nation.. the major networks are suing to allow the same nudity and speech on network TV thats allowed on cable.. Meaning that were on that down hill slide toward national moral decay.. You and the kids get to hear the F bomb together if this is upheld by the court..

We all kid around on here.. I honestly don't believe im either closed minded or moralistic.. Be a super hypocrite if i was.. It's just wrong.. were talking about the same values (or lack of) that are on cable.. same language, same nudity, etc.. On network TV.. Whats that deal about the fall of Rome..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Judicial review

We need that badly, because that is how our government has gained huge powers it isn't supposed to have. The commerce clause has been "interpreted" to practically give congress unlimited power. The 2nd amendment, well we all know. The 10th amendment, lol, might as well as been struck from record. et al ad nauseum

This is why Obama HAS to be defeated at any cost. There's a good chance he could appoint 3 justices in a 2nd term. With his previous two ringers, that would let him stack the court with 5 of his appointees. Bam, tyranny.

If a federal judge rules contrary to the Constitution Congress can and should review the case and if necessary haul the judge in for an ass chewing or impeachment.

There is no Constitutional "Right" to say f-ck, the Constitution does not allow vulgarity nor does it allow nudity as free speech. Giving the finger to a cop because he gave you a ticket IS NOT protected speech.

What we are stuck with is liberal interpretation of the Constitution. We Americans have the REAL right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness unless you're unfortunate enough to be a baby not quite born yet, sorry kid, suck your brains out and toss your ass into the dumpster.

You can be at the park with wife and g-kids, some half-wit starts screaming vulgarities, cops can arrest him but with a slick lawyer he'll be out free in hours with no charges.

The ACLU and the Federal court system are a marriage made in HELL.

Congress can do that?

I didn't realize. OK, now I'm back to being crazy pissed at these fuckers. I think I need to write some letters and ask how these asshats are allowing the SCOTUS to make some of the decisions they have. Don't get me wrong, most of the recent ones have been good. But the ruling on Montana's attempted end-around on the NFA by only selling intrastate was not valid as the fact that it competes with products that are sold interstate puts in their jurisdiction under the commerce clause was a blank check to the Federal Govt. for unbridled power.

edit: Oh, I just explained to myself why they didn't exercise their power. "You can't give us unlimited power, it's unconstitutional". Yeah, right.

Yeah, that's crazy. That guy better start packing and keep his head on a swivel.

in edit: to clarify, I'm referring to the guy he tried to murder, not the murderer

Puerto Rican terrorists just as Mrs. Cliton's senate campaign was getting started?

Gov. Barbour's pardons are sickening and There should be some way to get the dirtbags back in jail, too bad there is not.

Pardons are not always bad but people like Clinton and Barbour have convinced me ALL pardons should be reviewed by at jury before they can be carried out.

My oldest brother got a pardon from Gov. Reagan, that was cool but my bro was not a murderer serving a life sentence, he'd already done his time.

Pardons

I wonder how it would go if the victim's family was allowed to greet the newly freed at the gate?
Just a thought.
