This situation is mind-bending. It reads like something you would observe in a Monty Python skit or read in the Onion:
In a perfectly Orwellian dissenting opinion, which she read dramatically from the bench, Justice Sotomayor argued that the decision of the people of Michigan to end racial discrimination is itself an instance of racial discrimination and that the only way to mitigate such racial discrimination is through the mandatory maintenance of racial discrimination.
I’ll sum up the upside-down thinking for you: the Liberal justice insists that not providing biases in favor of minorities is tantamount to racism… go figure:
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia faulted Justice Sonia Sotomayor for making what he regards as a “shameful” suggestion that the Michigan voters who decided to ban affirmative action in college admissions were motivated by racism.
As noted recently by John Fund:
Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections…
What is going on? Increasingly, journalists who cover the White House are concluding that the smears are part of a conscious strategy to distract voters from Obamacare, the sluggish economy, and foreign-policy reverses; the attacks are intended, the thinking goes, to drive up resentment and hence turnout among the Democratic base.
It appears that others see a Manchurian Marxist Moslem:
Have you noticed the similarities between Barack Obama’s platform and that of the Communist Party USA? The correlations are undeniable to anyone who is being honest.
The Columbus Blue Jackets won their first NHL playoff game Saturday night in Pittsburgh and the Dayton Demonz won the FHL championship Saturday night in Danbury.
A decent day for Ohio hockey…
People (including yours truly) often exclaim that the future of the country is about Left versus Right, or Socialists versus Capitalists… In reality, it’s about tyranny versus anarchy, That is, how much Government do we want versus how much potential chaos can you accept?
The issue is immune to your political affiliation. The coercive power that the Government is unleashing is getting out of control. This video highlights the creeping path of Tyranny.
Whatever your political persuasion, you must see this short video.
Would you run your own business this way, or your own personal/family finances? Of course not.
This isn’t a political issue… it’s a common sense issue. And it bespeaks the road to ruin for our nation. We all deserve better from our elected representatives!
Much has been said about what Obama should do to destroy the Russian economy. To me the plan for Russia is simple:
1) Ban their use of coal
2) Mandate that Russia goes on Obamacare
3) Don’t allow any drilling on Russian public land
4) Have the EPA pass regulations curtailing Russian business
5) Re-define the full time Russian work week to 30 hours
6) Raise the Russian minimum wage
7) Mandate overtime pay for government employees
8) Demand the Russian Government pay free Welfare benefits to Illegal immigrants
I could go on, but guarantee these measures would bring the Russia economy to its knees; it has been working in the U.S. since 2009.

You may not realize that our Government has adopted a policy where military bases such as Ft Hood do not allow the soldiers to carry weapons… You have to admit that it seem a little crazy.
