SCOTUS nomination

Well this is news that I have been dreading since the GOP already stole one seat on theĀ  current SCOTUS bench.

Of course Mitch McConnell wants to get a speedy vote on this. He knows that the country is pissed at his slimy thieving ass.

We are seeing that federal court nominees are not even wanting to answer questions about landmark cases. They are getting away with it, why? because the GOP does not care about justice and constitutionality, just drive the dollars in the correct direction.

We know that the GOP is pushing for the youngest judges that it can get, regardless of qualifications.

Regardless of the damages, Thank you Justice Kennedy for all of the years that you have given to the bench.

Church and State – battle on the playground

This morning SCOTUS rules that the Missouri church should not have been denied a grant for recycled rubber playground surface for their playground.

The concern it seems was over the old church and state argument.

To me, this should not have been a concern as it was not an area of political influence.

Perhaps some of the questions of importance in the grant process should have been to determine if the public funds would benefit the public, and not just the kids in the daycare. If the playground was for the sole use of the public, it moves up the list. If it is only for the daycare members’ use, then it could still be considered, but after all of the public playgrounds have been dealt with.

Of course this could be rendered moot if the church was paying it’s fair share of taxes. If that had been the case, the only issue would have been, does this funding lead to any conflicts of interest or promotion of faith? If not, then why not.

Separation of church and state was only intended to make sure that neither side could influence the other. Sadly Christianity is unable to internalize the fact that this is not a Christian nation. We are to be a free nation, capable of enjoying any faith that we wish.

Gay Marriage; States rights, federal rights, or human rights

By Eyes_open

 

As the Supreme Court takes on the issue of California’s Proposition 8, and the federal DOMA, and Jeb Bush weighs in that he believes marriage should be a states rights issue, where do you stand on the issue of same-sex marriage, and why. Is it a matter that should be left to each state, should the federal government be involved and to what degree. Or is this a constitutional violation of civil rights, placing it in the hands of the Supreme Court.

Fan-Flippin’-Tastic!

So the Supreme court has come in on the Arizona law SB1070

SCOTUS rejected some parts, but allowed the police to be able to ask about immigration status.

My opinion is mixed, but find that the court’s decision is sound.

Let the rest of the country follow Arizona’s lead.

What say you?

ALIPAC Welcomes Supreme Court Ruling on Arizona & Vows to Spread Law to More States

For Immediate National Release

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is celebrating the decision of the US Supreme Court announced this morning which upholds the key component of Arizona’s enforcement only approach to deterring illegal immigration! ALIPAC is vowing to pass improved versions of Arizona’s law in more states as soon as possible, to protect American workers, students, taxpayers, and voters from illegal immigration.

“This Supreme Court ruling in our favor is an historic victory for Americans fighting against the corporate sponsored illegal alien invasion of our homeland,” said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. “This ruling is a great blow to the Mexican government and Barack Obama’s efforts to sustain the invasion. We believe that we now have the momentum to pass versions of Arizona’s SB 1070 law in many other states since the court upheld the most important provision in the bill!”

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has over 40,000 national supporters and has helped to pass immigration enforcement laws in many states while stopping legislation designed to give taxpayer benefits like in-state tuition in more than 20 states. ALIPAC’s platform seeks to stop and reverse illegal immigration in America through the adequate enforcement of America’s existing border and immigration laws, instead of any changes in the law that would allow illegal aliens to form a new voting bloc that would destroy America.

“Obama has forced America into some new form of dictatorship to try to stop the mass exodus of illegal immigrants that should be following this ruling,” said William Gheen. “We plan to release new activist and legislation efforts in the coming weeks that will make it clear to illegal immigrants that departing the United States on their own volition as soon as possible, is their best course of action.”

National polls show that 81% of Americans support local police enforcing immigration laws and news reports indicate that illegal immigrants flee areas where local police can enforce immigration laws.

The Supreme Court did reject some of the other less important provisions in the Arizona law and ALIPAC found it disturbing to hear the same kind of illegal immigration supporting rhetoric used by globalists in the Obama and Bush administrations coming from some members of the court. They sound more concerned about illegal immigrants than suffering states, American workers and taxpayers.
