Scalia rocks

Scalia attempts to teach the ACLU a thing or two about the proper role of the judiciary:
He said unelected judges have no place deciding politically charged questions when the Constitution is silent on those issues. Arguing that liberal judges in the past improperly established new political rights such as abortion, Scalia warned, "Someday, you're going to get a very conservative Supreme Court and regret that approach." . . .

"Whether it's good or bad is not my job. My job is simply to say if those things you find desirable are contained in the Constitution," he said.
This is exactly why the Left, which realized they can't get their agenda through the democratic process they pay so much lip service to, decided to push their agenda through liberal courts where they only had to convince five people instead of over 100 million. The same dynamic is at play with gay marriage. It's also why every judicial appointment is now treated like a battle to the death.

Agree. But some issues clearly show the Courts supporting unconstitutional issues like the injunction against 209. What does that mean? I also believe our Universitites are not supporting equality as they believe preferences are necessary to eliminate an 'artificial priviledge' that whites enjoy. Has nothing to do with money really, it's cultural. Pretty bad living and enjoying the benifits of your own culture, especially considering it is the only place you can possibly be equal with everybody else.

BTW how can diversity promote equality? The key word is 'diversity'. What does that mean. What side does it take in an idealogical or cultural or political battle.

Blame the chaos on the nation state? what a hoot. I haven't forgotton about patriotism being 'a state of mind that precludes rational'. Or so say the Liberals and their diverse supporters.
