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.
This will be decided based on matter what politics, period. It won't the constitution says and it won't be some lofty legal decision. The Obama administration is shopping around for a sympathetic judge/court right now and they will find one. If they are very lucky they will find a brilliant mind who can write a convincing decision that would make it easier for the Supremes to uphold that new world order. If not then like finding the right for abortion hidden in the constitution the Supremes will find the right of illegal immigration there as well. Judge Ginsberg is right now consulting with doctors to keep her alive and well enough to stay upright so that she can find that hidden right of illegal immigration. Sotomayor was appointed exactly for this decision and has already written her decision. Kagan too was appointed because of her hatred of all things conservative and this decision will give her profound pleasure. Breyer will vote for it because it will please him to stick his finger in the eye of the great unwashed Americans in flyover country. Kennedy will be the deciding vote but will likely allow himself to be lead by his nose to the left. The other four will probably vote against the president usurping the power of congress but I would not be suprised if one of them voted in favor of the administration.
Our only hope lies with congress and I am confident that McCain and Graham will use their considerable power to once more screw over the citizens of this country.
