Sonia Sotomayor - A Judicial Lawmaker

This is the kind of judicial nominee you get when you elect a president who has no respect for the constitution. (I know... Obama taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago, but that's like the gay, atheist, Episcopalian professor teaching theology)

When Sotomayor's rulings have been challenged and brought before the Supreme Court, she has been overturned 60% of the time. Judge Jose Cabranes, a Clinton nominee for crying out loud, has scolded her in writing for her decision in the infamous Ricci v. DeStefano.

But let's let the Judge speak for herself: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life." --Sonia Sotomayor in a speech at Berkeley

This is not a racist statement. This is the philosophy of a judicial activist. The founding fathers created a government in which judges were to rule based upon the Constitution and the laws written by legislators elected by The People... Judges were not intended to rule based upon their personal experience. This is the statement of a Supreme Court Justice who will overrule the will of the people... Because she can... Because she thinks it's her job to be fair... Even if it means she has to overrule the Constitution.

The nomination of Sonia Sotomayor is how Obama will further take the governing of America out of the hands of the people, and make it the province of the elite.

Update: I'd like to thank PAW and Skyepuppy for correcting the first sentence in my post's second paragraph. I wouldn't want to dupe anyone, and I know those who support the Left wouldn't want to dupe anyone or involve themselves in character assassination.

That's as gracious as I can be, because I have no fondness for people who support the limiting of my freedom and the devaluation of my vote.

Obama Cancels Election

Washington AP-- In a bold move on Thursday, President Barack Obama cancelled the congressional elections of 2010, citing economic reasons. Speaking from the Rose Garden, Obama stated, "The nation's economic woes are much too grave for us to risk an irrational and emotional move by voters to change the makeup of Congress at this critical juncture. Therefore, the elections of 2010 will be placed on hold."

Asked if he felt that the country would be stable enough for the presidential election of 2012, Obama responded by saying, "I think it's much too early to make that decision, but my administration will, when the time comes and with the support of Congress, choose the path that will best serve to move us towards our goal of peace, security, and prosperity."

When asked about the critics of this decision, Obama replied, "Yes, there are those reactionaries that place tradition above the good of the people, but I do not stand with them. And to right-wing terrorists who would move to disrupt and threaten our peace and progress I'll say this: My administration will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the federal government to bear on those who preach hate and sedition."

At this point the press conference was interrupted by a five minute standing ovation from the White House Press Corps.

Acknowledging the support of the press, Obama continued, "You, the members of the Fourth Estate will play an important part in our efforts, and I am depending on you to get the good word out to the people. But again, there are those in your profession who do not share your scruples, your ethics, those who would use their voice to stir unrest and dampen hope. Let me state unequivocally, this subversive interference for political gain will not be tolerated. It is a privilege, not a right, to report the news and comment on the public airwaves, and the irresponsible misuse of those airwaves shall not continue."

Obama then stressed that free and fair elections would return to the United States as soon as the present crisis has past.

You can't make this stuff up.

Strange Space Craft Lands on Planet LoCarb

And fear didst sweep the land. But though fearsome to behold, this raven orb cometh not for our destruction, but as a new altar of blessing. And there was much rejoicing in the land.

For in ages past we had sacrificed animals on the Altar of Propane, but lately we have climbed Mount Kingsford, beheld its light, and mined for briquettes. And lo, the flesh of the animals sacrificed has a new flavor. And yea, there is much singing and dancing.

Today I will stretch forth my bow and slay a winged fowl for the sacrifice. Or perhaps I'll just drive to the grocery and buy some chicken.

A Dame ShameToday the University of Notre Dame dishonored Christ by honoring Barack Obama, a man who fanatically supports the killing of the weakest among us. This so-called Catholic institution has identified and embraced its lord.

The "Dead Ted" Health Care Plan

"What better tribute could there be to the greatest Senator we've had in decades?"
--Andy Stern, Union Leader

Obama's intent is to transform the world's Cadillac of health care into the Yugo of health care. He will accomplish this by naming it after the dying Senator, Ted Kennedy... Who like Barack Obama, will never have to wait in line for hernia surgery or a cardiac bypass operation.

I see it this way: Ted is dying... I'm dying... You're dying... And I resent this maudlin device, this sentimental gimmick that will be used to facilitate the wrecking of our health care system.

Dr Clarence Cobb, the guy who hired me to work in his lab 30 years ago, once talked to me about the practice of medicine prior to medicare and medicaid. Back then the caring for people who could not afford to pay was simply part of the practice of medicine, and the doctors accepted that fact. Then the government came along and said they were going to give the poor health care, and would pay the doctors for treating them... And the doctors said, "OK!"

Many entitlements and accompanying regulations later, doctors' offices and hospitals have more employees pushing paper than treating patients... And band-aids cost $100.00

Nothing good can some from Washington's enhanced control of the health care system.

Maybe we could just give Ted a plaque.

Obama Hates America, But...

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is weighing plans to detain some terror suspects on U.S. soil -- indefinitely and without trial -- as part of a plan to retool military commission trials that were conducted for prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

On Wednesday, the president reversed a recent administration decision to release photos showing purported abuse of prisoners at U.S. military facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Obama cited concern that releasing the pictures could endanger U.S. troops.

Obviously, Obama is currently studying the disparity in the degree of difficulty between campaigning and leading... Between criticising policies and putting forth sound policies of his own.

Obama is staunchly couched among the lunatic Left in his hatred for America and all she stands for... But he is quite willing to jettison George Soros, the ACLU, the lawyers lobby, and the rest of the moon bats in order to secure his success (and re-election)... Because Obama loves Obama even more than he despises our country.

I believe that George Bush, for all his faults, never stuck his finger in the wind to determine his policies. He did what he honestly thought was best for the country.

Obama will serve Obama... How fortuitous that what serves Obama and what serves America occasionally run along parallel lines.

Gay Freedom Trumps Yours

From Chuck Colson and his Breakpoint Broadcast:

Two women decided to hold their civil union ceremony at a New Jersey pavilion owned by the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association. This Methodist group told the women they could not “marry” in any building used for religious purposes. The Rev. Scott Hoffman said a theological principle—that marriage can only exist between one man and one woman—was at stake.

The women filed a discrimination complaint with the New Jersey Division of Civil Rights. The Methodists said the First Amendment protected their right to practice their faith without being punished by the government. But punish the Methodists is exactly what New Jersey did. It revoked their tax exemption—a move that cost them $20,000.

Then there’s the case of the Christian physicians who refused to provide in vitro fertilization treatment to a woman in a lesbian relationship. The doctors referred her to their partners, who were willing to provide the treatment. But that wasn’t good enough. The woman sued. The California Supreme Court agreed with the woman, saying that the doctors’ religious beliefs didn’t give them the right to refuse the controversial treatment.

In Massachusetts, Catholic Charities was told they had to accept homosexual couples in their adoption service, or get out of the adoption business. They chose correctly—they got out of the business.

In Mississippi, a mental health counselor was sued for refusing to provide therapy to a woman looking to improve her lesbian relationship. The counselor’s employers fired her—a move that was backed up by the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In New York, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University refused to allow same-sex couples to live in married student housing, in keeping with the school’s orthodox Jewish teachings. But in 2001, the New York State Supreme Court forced them to do so anyway—even though New York has no same-sex “marriage” law.

In Albuquerque, a same-sex couple asked a Christian wedding photographer to film their commitment ceremony—and sued the photographer when she declined. An online adoption service was forced to stop doing business in California when a same-sex couple sued the service for refusing, on religious grounds, to assist them.

Not a single one of these judicial decisions would stand if they were put on a ballot and the people were allowed to decide. But - We The People - no longer run this country.

This will not change any time soon because the Democrats accept tyranny as a means to an end... The mainstream media covers them... And the lazy, ignorant sheep that line up to vote for them care nothing about liberty as long as they get their bread and circuses.

ND Response - Official Video

Because of the appearance of Obama - and his radical pro-abortion stance - many Notre Dame students are skipping their own graduation and will instead be involved in a prayer vigil.

Incest was Best

The story of innocence, sin, and gene mutation.

OK... I heard this theory over the weekend... Probably on a podcast, but I'm not sure. So I can't give credit.

It goes like this: When God created Adam and Eve, the human gene pool was perfect. No illnesses, no hereditary diseases, no mutations. That is why all mankind could come from the same set of parents. Adam's son having a child with his sister was no more sinful than it was for Abraham and his sister, Sarah... Nor was it dangerous for the offspring.

But when sin entered the world, it gradually took its toll on the human gene pool, and by the time Moses set down The Law, it was no longer wise for families to procreate within themselves. There were too many mutated genes concentrated in immediate and extended families, and the health of progeny dictated a change.

I like this theory not only because it explains a few things, but also because it says something about God's economy when it comes to placing limits on our freedom. As James McDonald often says, "When God says 'don't', He means don't hurt yourself."

Getting Naked for Dr Siebe

It's been almost eight years since Dr Siebe carved up my chest, and my brain, liver, and lungs are still cancer free... So I figure I'm a cancer survivor.

But once you've had a melanoma tumor removed, you have to return to the doctor once per year so he can check for suspicious spots. Dr S says I'm easy because I have very few moles and nothing suspicious for him to keep track of. Anyway, that's how I spent last Wednesday morning.

Actually, I just strip down to my underwear. Dr Siebe checks me over including my tushee, but then always asks, "You regularly self-examine your genital area don't you?" To which I always answer "Yes", though that used to be lying.

But then I bought one of those cosmetic mirrors with magnification, and now I do it all the time.

So thanks for saving my life, Dr Siebe! See you next year!

Trashing Miss California

Carrie Prejean thinks marriage should only be between a man and a woman... What could be more natural than to want to destroy her? Let's get some guys together, get some bricks and baseball bats, go to her home, and...

Today I heard the mainstream media playing its part by talking up the "nude" photos of this young woman, which was squarely aimed at Christians who will hear this about her and feel let down.

Well here is the picture... And I definitely feel let down. But not for the reason... Well never mind.
Granted, a nice Christian girl should not have a photo like this taken. But I've seen more skin in the lingerie ads in the Sunday paper.
It comes down to this: Whether you're Carrie Prejean, Sarah Palin, or Elisabeth Hasselbeck... If you're a woman who takes a conservative or Christian stand, get ready to be viciously pummeled in a very ugly way. The Left wants you to shut up, sit down, and stay in your place. When it comes to your intimidation, any method short of water boarding is fair game. They won't quit until your reputation is destroyed.
No one hates like the Left.
Arlen Gets Screwed

When Harry Reid negotiated with Arlen Specter about switching to the Democrat Party, part of the deal was that Specter would keep his senate seniority.

Guess not. But that's what Arlen gets for choosing to associate with trash. I could have told him that Reid is without honor. Arlen could have gotten it in writing, but I doubt that the Dems would honor a contract any more than they honor the Constitution... Or truth... Or life... Or marriage... Or character... Or the law... Or God...

I like to remember Arlen Specter when he defended Clarence Thomas to the Senate Judiciary Committee. (That was when Anita Hill perjured herself in order to destroy Thomas, garner fame and money for herself, and become the darling of the Left.) But those are the only "highlights" that I recall from Specter's career.

Malott Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder

It's true. I'm getting nowhere near enough attention.

I was thinking maybe I could get some attention by being louder and more obnoxious at work, but I've pretty much already peaked in that area. I could fake an epileptic fit, but I'd end up in ER and goodness knows what they'd do to me.

I could get attention by soiling myself... Filling my pants and walking around like that... But I figure that will be my primary mode of social interaction in a few short years, so why rush it. My family will all move to Florida and I'll never see them again. I'll die alone... Probably do a header down the stairs and they'll find me when I've missed a few mortgage payments... They'll never get the stink out of the house.

I guess I'm a little depressed. My spring garden is crap because of cold temperatures and flooding from the incessant rain... The city is going to dig up my yard to put in a new sewer line... I'm 55 years old but I'm aging so rapidly that I calculate I'll be 60 by next Thursday... My libido has deteriorated to the point that I think about something sensual about every six to eight days... (That's working days.)

And I think I'm getting a cold sore.

Other than that, everything is just freaking delightful.
