Remember when stare decisis was important

Back during the last confirmation proceedings Judge Sotomayor claimed to agree that “The Second Amendment Right Is An Individual Right”.
(Judiciary Committee, U.S. Senate, Confirmation Hearing, 7/14/09)

SEN. PAT LEAHY (D-VT): “Is It Safe To Say That You Accept The Supreme Court’s Decision As Establishing That The Second Amendment Right Is An Individual Right? Is That Correct?”
So how did Justice Sotomayor vote in the McDonald case?
“I Can Find Nothing In The Second Amendment’s Text, History, Or Underlying Rationale That Could Warrant Characterizing It As ‘Fundamental’ Insofar As It Seeks To Protect The Keeping And Bearing Of Arms For Private Self-Defense Purposes.”
She was one of the 4 that voted against the 2nd Amendment!
It appears that she lied to us.
What about Heller? What about Stare Decisis?

Will our elected officials repeat this mistake?
(Judiciary Committee, U.S. Senate, Confirmation Hearing, 6/29/10)

SEN. PAT LEAHY (D-VT): “Is There Any Doubt After The Court’s Decisions In Heller And McDonald That The Second Amendment To The Constitution, Secures A Fundamental Right For An Individual To Own A Firearm, Use It For Self Defense In Their Home?”
ELENA KAGAN: “There Is No Doubt, Senator Leahy, That Is Binding Precedent Entitled To All The Respect Of Binding Precedent In Any Case. So That Is Settled Law.”

But Kagan doesn't care about SCOTUS nomination proceedings:
“Subsequent Hearings Have Presented To The Public A Vapid And Hollow Charade, In Which Repetition Of Platitudes Has Replaced Discussion Of Viewpoints And Personal Anecdotes Have Supplanted Legal Analysis.” - Elena Kagan

Well, America, how is that for a poke in your eye?

Lack of understanding

Posted on a local lefty blog:
Obama acted properly in accepting McChrystal's resignation, but I wish that he had been able to avoid an incident like this, making the resignation unnecessary. McChrystal, for all of his problems - and there have been many - is an amazing man, a dedicated and brave soldier, and a tremendous asset to our country. We have all lost something important with this failure. All of us have; McChrystal, Obama, the members of our armed forces, our allies, our country .
That dog won't hunt.

This left wing liberal, the Peevish Boy's better half, doesn't seem to understand the situation.

McChrystal did not resign from the army. He resigned his position as commander of US forces in Afghanistan. He is still a four star general. He is being replaced by an at least as qualified four star general.

But I still have one open question for the liberals;
will you still call him General Betrayus?

Liberals compare US Border Patrol to the KKK

Liberals claim border patrol are terrorists.

Just. Plain. Stupid.

Barack Trump: You're fired! Bring on Betrayus?

OK, Gen. Stanley McChrystal should have kept some of his views to himself IF he really wants to keep his job.

Many generals have been fired over the years.

Undermining the CIC is wrong, regardless of what party is in the WH and regardless of the truth of the matter.

But the question now comes down to the ego of Obama.
Gen. Stanley McChrystal is an outstanding leader.
Obama has an outstanding ego.

Will Obama try to copy The Donald? Of course. His ego demands it. He can't hide his anger.

And what did Biden say about General Petraeus: "dead flat wrong"

Definition of an idiot.

The Peevish Boy, aka Peevee, aka Pernicious Peevee, aka Useful Idiot, aka Liberal Fascist, aka Democrat Tool...

"You see things, underline SEE, your way, that's clear.

...after 4 years - and I've explained this numerous times - after 4 years of seeing Lilliputians like Yoss, AK, KR, Brad C, Badda and a few other wing-nuts..."

Whoa, peevee, when you said "after 4 years of seeing...", did you underline SEE?

And awww, isn't that nice. I made the ad hominem list!


Why is teh peevee such a hypocrite?

Well, he refuses to follow his own rules:

"Discourteous behavior discourages discussion and debate, and is contrary to sharing the widest possible range of view points."


"4. Courtesy is expected and required."
Yet he calls commenters hypocrites and liars.


Oh, my, I just cornobbled teh Peevish Boy!!!

The National Debt topped $13-trillion for the first time in U.S. history - reflecting the surge in government spending that will push the Debt to increasing highs through the rest of the decade.

Posted on the Treasury Department website this afternoon, the National Debt hit $13,050,826,460,886.97 as of June 1st.

Tallied against the nation's Gross Domestic Product, the latest Debt number amounts to nearly 89.4 percent of the total economy.

Wow!!! Was this the HOPE and CHANGE you were expecting? Suckers!

Our federal government has gone from out of control spending to hyper out of control spending.

Obama has broken the record when it comes to deficit spending.

Obama has the record for adding to this country's debt!!!

It's not often that President Obama mentions the debt, but 90 minutes before the latest number was posted, it was part of his speech on the economy delivered at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

He was making the case that the record high federal deficits on his watch were not really his fault.

"We took office amid a crisis, and the effects of the recession put a $3 trillion hole in our budget before I even walked through the door," he explained to his audience.

Without mentioning his predecessor by name, he argued that blame for the expanding Debt reflected the policies of President George W. Bush...

He goes on and on blaming Dubya.

I will spare you more of Obama's finger pointing, go here to see Obama's picture.

No, Obama is NOT a leader. He continues to blame his problems on others. He tries to spend our way out of the Obama Depression. He has damaged our country much more than most people realize.

Don't be a coward.

I've been reading blogs and posting online for over 10 years.

I've seen all sorts of folks. A majority like to dish it out but can't take it. Some are pansies and some are cowards.

I don't care for cowards. If you got something to say; then say it.

If I offended your fragile little ego; then just admit it.

If I bothered you and you want me to stop; then just ask. Sure, I might tell you to pack sand up your pansy ass, but just don't act like a coward.
I don't like cowardly bullshit.

No Bullshit.

So don't act like such a little prick.

Double-dip Depression?

Lower prices could mean deflation and double-dip

Lumber prices are sinking. And while that might make a trip to Home Depot cheaper, it's also a sign that the global economic recovery and the U.S. housing rebound are in danger of stalling.

Only a few months ago, inflation was the main worry of many economists. But falling prices for the raw materials of many industries, including lumber, have set off deflation warning bells for some economists, who worry that they could signal another global economic downturn.

Prices for framing lumber have tumbled 21% from their peak only five weeks ago, according to figures from the National Association of Home Builders. Prices are also falling for a wide variety of other industrial materials in recent weeks.

While consumers love falling prices, deflation can cause far more damage to growth than inflation can. Lower prices cause businesses to cut back production, which can lead to layoffs, which can then cause further declines in demand due to falling incomes and consumer spending, creating a downward spiral.

If prices continue to fall, it could cause some producers to cut back production or go out of business because they can no longer cover their manufacturing costs, according to Eric Schooler, CEO of The Collins Companies, a Portland, Ore.,-based lumber producer.
Please don't tell me "the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression" can't get worse.

Had enough HOPE and CHANGE yet?

An issue if Emmer becomes Governor?

As we all have heard, Tom had two DUIs decades ago.

According to Canadian Law, Emmer is considered a member of an Inadmissible Class.

This has resulted in less tourism for Canada. I wonder what Tom Emmer has to say about being part of the Inadmissible Class?

I suppose Emmer won't be bringing bus loads of seasoned citizens to Canada on drug runs.
