  •  Were We REALLY Expecting a Win...? (8+ / 0-)

    Let's go down the list:

    -- Reagan appointee
    -- 80 years old
    -- Convert to Catholicism
    -- Married into a prominent Italian family in New Orleans
    -- Friend of Antonin Scalia
    -- Indeed, the judge who decided against the government in the Deepwater Horizon case

    However, he REALLY had to use tortured thinking (I won't dignify his thought processes by suggesting that they involved "logic"), including willfully misreading the Fourteenth Amendment, to support his ruling.

    It may hold up in the equally regressive Fifth Circuit, but I can't see the Supremes affirming this horrible ruling.

    The state of my birth is really doing all it can to reinforce my decision to NEVER, EVER return there for more than a few days-- and I have to soon, since my mother now lives there and is in poor health. If I can get her out of Louisiana, I will. Because I cannot STAND the mindset of the people in power in that state. It is evil. And un-American.

    -8.75,-8.00. Equal rights for ALL. Nothing less. RIGHT. NOW.

      you have frequented / grew up in.

      I grew up in New Orleans and am connected to a great many wonderful people throughout the state.

      I guess it just depends on who you know!

      Change the charter of corporations to serve the public interest BEFORE fiduciary concerns. 100% of Republicans and HALF the Dems are AGAINST We The People. We need TRUE Progressives, NOT Republican-Lite Dems - like Hillary, Pelosi, Feinstein...
