So THAT's what that flavor is in the tap water.

So, what IS the deal with Roberts? Insofar as I can tell, he tends to rely exclusively on a methodical and dispassionate interpretation of the law. What specific cases have the dems' panties in a bunch? Reid is claiming that his gripe is that the WH is withholding key documents. Not sure which documents he is refering to.

Reid also made the following statements:


"No one suggests that John Roberts was motivated by bigotry or animosity toward minorities or women," Reid added. "But these memos lead one to question whether he truly appreciated the history of the civil rights struggle. He wrote about discrimination as an abstract concept, not as a flesh and blood reality for countless of his fellow citizens."

Reid also said Roberts followed a "disingenuous strategy" at the confirmation hearings of suggesting that the views in the memos were not his own.



THAT is just liberal rhetorical from Reid. Sounds like Roberts exhibits exactly what qualities one wants in a supreme court justice. Unswayed by emotion, his own or others, and rules purely based on a neutral and dispassionate interpretation of the law.

Does Roberts have any history of firearms rulings at all?

Hey, we're not all hippies. Some of us are held hostage in the PRC.

Anyone need an IT geek? I am out of here as soon as possible.

Not that Reid was ever a winner but since becoming leader for the Democrats he has become a real asshole. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get rid of long time politicians. Even more so for Reid since so many have moved to Nevada from the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia.

I fear we will be stuck with him for a long long time. AAARGH!

to which I replied:


Senator Reid

this nominee does not NEED to satisfy YOUR requirements. He satisfies
the requirements of the people of the state of Nevada. And you, sir,
are OUR representative.

remember who is in charge.

yours respectfully.

...not allow any more calis in here.
I think the recent property tax cap will help to weed out some of the cali speculators. I'm glad there are still new proposals coming to the table.
