The funniest thing about swine flu until the next time Joe Biden opens his mouth!
With the announced retirement of Supreme Court Justice David Souter President Obama wasted no time in addressing the issue of what he’s looking for to fill this vacancy. In so many words he clearly stated his desire for an activist judge with an eye towards reengineering America [emphasis and comments mine].
“It is also about how our laws affect the daily realities of people’s lives [meaning he wants a Justice who holds fast to the Living Constitution Theory,ie, an activist judge finding invisible law where none existed], whether they can make a living and care for their families, whether they feel safe in their homes and welcome in their own nation.”
The following excerpt clearly reveals President Obama’s contempt for legislative history in effect eliminating a potential nominee that adheres to the theory of original intent.
“I will seek someone who understands that justice is not about some abstract legal theory or footnote in a casebook.”
One thing is for sure, it will be an extremist liberal and pro-abortion nominee.
For those that question the wisdom and effectiveness of chaperoned dating this video is for you.
Something for the weekend. The Clancy Brothers singing The Gallant Forty-Twa. The song is about the Black Watch, more formally known as the Forty-Second Highland Regiment. This song was quite popular in Newfoundland, my mother’s homeland, as many of the men during the Second World War served with the Black Watch of Canada. The Sassanach government in London dissolved the regiment in 2006 and now it is only a battalion, but in time of need I am sure the world will hear of the Black Watch again.
