Jul 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Athens Banner-Herald

Justice Antonin Scalia ended his 26th year on the Supreme Court with a string of losses in the term's biggest cases and criticism that he crossed a line from judging to politics.

When Scalia has an opinion it's politics, when any of the 4 lefties have an opinion it's "justice".

Justice Scalia is now 76 years old.

We likely can look forward to more frequent lapses in his judgement, verbal gaffes, and increasing occurrences of inappropriate judicial conduct as the old man sinks further into his dotage...

When all that happened to Ronald Reagan, he was blessed to have not been given a lifetime appointment to the Presidency.

While there is weight to Scalia's intense defenses of the sovereignty of States and his abhorrence of the precedents of expanded Federal executive powers, the winning intellectual argument is that true defense of freedom and liberty in our nation rests with the People through Congress, not through legislation from any Bench.

And let's not allow Barack Obama to appoint anymore Supreme Court Justices!

OUT in 2012!

NO to all democrats. They have shown they are UNable to work with other elected officials in OUR country.

We need people who will compromise and work TOGETHER. It's the Obama DIVIDE and Conquer. Obama has NOT unified this country, nor have democrats done that either. They STILL dominate this country with the CONTROL of the Presidency and the Senate!

There ARE Congressional BIPARTISAN (crafted by BOTH democrats and republicans) sitting in the Senate waiting for Harry Reid and the dominant do-nuthin' Senate to act on!

Harry Reid and the Senate have NOT put forth a BUDGET in the 4 years of Obama's Presidency and in the 4 years of their dominance in the Senate.

Time to change that dynamic and vote out democrat senators and put in republican senators!

Democrats CAN'T work with other elected officials!

They had total dominance in 2008 and refused compromise or EVEN an invitation to republicans sitdown and participate.

In 2010, the PEOPLE vote in more Republicans in the governorships and congress to show their displeasure.

Did that propel democrats to work ALONG SIDE republicans...NO!

Democrats=refuse to work WITH republicans

“i hope we can change this!”

Scumlia stepped far, FAR over the line in his offtopic rant against Obama in the Arizona 1070 immigration case, and should either resign or be impeached and removed. He's not in any way objective, or fit to be a Justice.

And he ought to take his even more incompetent houseboy, Clarence the Cowardly Liar, with him. Two dead birds with one stone, as it were.

Sadly for Justice Scalia, he's deteriorating at the age of 76.

As you unwittingly pointed out, some persons still function highly despite being older than Scalia. Unfortunately, Justice Scalia regularly crosses the line. It's sad.

'Ol PooPoo joins you in your sorrow.(Think of it as reaching across the aisle...)

Great minds discuss issues. Tiny little minds like you point fingers and go 'Nyah-nyaaah-NYAAAH!' like a silly schoolboy.
