We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Rush mischievously but truthfully noted today that racial profiling is an evil if practiced by cops, border agents, or airports - but is considered highly desirable in government as Obama's people seek a Left-wing female Hispanic to replace Souter.
Why not some sort of Asian? How about somebody who reveres our Constitution?
"Rules for thee, but not for me," as the old saying goes. Trying to legislate against the hard-wired instinct in all living beings to assess the dangers around them and coming toward them, is like trying to hold back the sea. It doesn't work -- no matter how politically correct it might be. If you see a creature walking toward you down the path, you automatically think "it's a bear,or it's a bunny rabbit, or it's a human being who is young/old/threatening/smiling/black/white/Asian et cetera. To say you don't is to lie to yourself and others.
Now the silly liberals have forced us, in the name of their sacred political correctitude, not to express the fact that we do this. But it doesn't stop us from doing it. Not if we want to avoid wild animal attacks and attacks from threatening liberals with nothing else useful to do.
I am in favor of a transgender American Indian. That would cover the skin color issue (including the Asian), gender(s), the well-known Indian traditions of peace and harmony and green life styles, and the victim legacy status.
All good points BD. You forgot to add slanted eyes, is half Jewish, a wiccan, and believes in polygamy. The two Dago's have cornered the market. Maybe we should get rid of one, and replace him with a queer Mick ,Polark, Kraut, with red hair.
How about a little history tutorial for the GOP Senate Judiciary Committee members. You can count on Obama's nominee to be every bit as offensive to the GOP and Constitution-loving Americans as Robert Bork was to the left wing Democrats in 1987. Time for some pay back. For starters, the senior GOP member on the Judiciary Committee needs to reprise Teddy's stunt from 1987:
Within 45 minutes of Bork's nomination to the Court, Edward Kennedy took to the Senate floor with a strong condemnation of Bork in a nationally televised speech, declaring:
"Robert Bork's America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is -- and is often the only -- protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy... President Reagan is still our president. But he should not be able to reach out from the muck of Irangate, reach into the muck of Watergate and impose his reactionary vision of the Constitution on the Supreme Court and the next generation of Americans. No justice would be better than this injustice."
A brief was prepared for Joe Biden, head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called the Biden Report. Bork later said in his best-selling book The Tempting of America that the report "so thoroughly misrepresented a plain record that it easily qualifies as world class in the category of scurrility."[
Great, huh? Even the Idiocy Czar was in on the act! It's deja vu all over again. What fun! Let's not lose this Golden Opportunity to hit these guys hard and let the MSM howl all they want. This nominee goes on the grill for more than a little searing, rather this is definitely a "well well done" order. Time to even the score for Robert Bork, he deserves no less. Besides, it is good politics and we're in this to win, aren't we?
