    entitlement...and it belongs to white men. White men have always had the upper hand in everything from jobs to housing, to, well, you name it.
    As a matter of fact, Scalia's own people were once looked down upon as "garlic eaters", wops, dagos, goombahs and greaseballs. Is that racial enough for you Antonin?Even Italian food was once considered fairly exotic here.
    Here in Boston, there were signs saying "No Irish need apply", even "No Finnish need apply."
    What voting rights means is that no one, regardless of racial heritage, gender or sexual orientation (or even political persuasion - since this is mostly about keeping Democrats from voting) should be denied their right to vote.
    Just because the black race has made strides doesn't mean there is still no discrimination. Just because women have made strides doesn't mean there is no discrimination.

    When people get lazy on our side and aren't sure if they like a candidate enough to vote, well, THIS is what you get...a right wing Supreme Court that decides matter that please their right wing corporate bosses. Shame on anyone who either did not vote, or voted for Bush in 2000 and/or 2004. This is what you gave us - a fascist Supreme Court. Good luck with that.

      It wasn't that many years ago (in my father's day) that "ethnic whites" like Scalia weren't considered to really be "white".

      My father did not enjoy growing up in the 1950s with a dark complexion and a very ethnic-sounding last name.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
