    Unless Palin goes the Joan Rivers route and has a ton of plastic surgery (which eventually killed her) she won’t look too good at age 80. How many 80 year olds are GILFS? (yes Jager I can figure that one out duh).

    progressiveslayer (what a cute name)- you are right if she gets replaced by a younger liberal it will keep the balance of the court. But if Scalia or Thomas leaves the court because of health issues (they would never retire willingly under a Democrat Prez) then the real fireworks begin for confirming a new Justice who will upset the balance.

    Go ahead and change the Constitution then. You just need a 3/4 vote in both Houses of Congress and then 2/3 of the State Houses. Should be a snap.

    You do realize the Supreme Court gutted DOMA a few months ago right? That’s why gay marriage bans have been struck down in state after state since then. Kennedy voted to strike down DOMA and he’ll probably vote to make gay marriage legal when it does go the Supreme Court.

    Clarence Thomas’s wife is the head of an anti-Obamacare group but Thomas didn’t recuse himself from Obamacare cases. I haven’t heard of him being removed from the court by the mighty “MSM”

    I think Hillary Clinton will appoint a qualified replacement.

    Elaine- I agree, the few non HOA neighborhoods in town (which are older since they were built pre-HOA requirement) are kind of trashy and rundown. People don’t want to deal with their neighbors and ask them to clean up their property so HOA’s are kind of a necessary evil.

    True China abandoned communism a couple decades ago. They give their people economic freedom but little political freedom. Even the richest Chinese billionaires can be accused of corruption and be executed by the Government (and it’s happened). So maybe rich people aren’t admired as much here as they are in China but not many rich people get executed for corruption here.

    A public school teachers is allowed to pray/read the Bible at lunch and on breaks at work. They are not allowed to pray/preach to their students. Even if you’re working at a private business the employer can fire you if you’re preaching to your fellow employees (especially if they complain about it) when you’re supposed to be working.

    No an atheist teacher has no more right to preach his relgious views to his students then a Christian teacher does. I would support firing a teacher who refused to stop trying to indoctrinate students with his atheist beliefs. Public school is for teaching not religous indoctrination of any kind.

    This is less a religious freedom issue and more of a out of control HOA issue. Its amazing how petty these HOA’s can be. I once put a 4 foot high fake palm tree out on my porch (I was tired of seeing it in the house) and got a nastygram from the HOA telling me to take it down (I just threw it out). I pretty much don’t do anything with my front yard now (except keep it weedfree since I get nastygrams about that too). By the way moving to a non-HOA neighborhood is pretty much impossible because the town has required all new housing developments for the last 20 years to have an HOA (so the town doesn’t have to get involved with code enforcement). So unless I want to move to the sticks and double my commute time I have to deal with the HOA.

    In my town all new neighborhoods are required to have HOAs (that way the city doesn’t have to spend as much time on code enforecement). So unless you move to a house that’s over 20 years old (and there aren’t many of those in our fast growing city) you have to move into a HOA community.

    Not every country uses a constitution based on our constitiution. Just because it works for us doesn’t mean it works for everyone.

    Even if she did violate the rules only Ginsburg can make the decision whether or not she can partipates in any gay marriage cases in the Supreme Court and she’s unlikely to rescind herself. And before you righties start yelling about that it goes both ways. Clarence Thomas’s wife is a leader of an anti-Obamacare group yet Thomas still ruled on the Obamacare case (shockingly he voted against Obamacare).

    Oh she’s going to retire in the next couple years to make sure her replacement is picked by a Democratic President. Don’t you worry.

    Coaches and PA Announcers are hired by the public school so if they lead the prayers it’s government endorsing a particular religion (Christianity). Court after court has ruled this violates the Establishment Clause.

    Islam will never be the dominate religion (“none” is the fastest growing religion in the US) and if Koran-thumpers try to have teachers and coaches lead students in Islamic prayers then atheist groups will oppose them too.

    It’s fine for students to lead prayers it’s not ok for coaches or PA announcers (who are employed by the public school) to lead prayers.

  • September 19, 2014 at 1:48pm

    Student led prayers are completely legal so what the cheerleaders did is fine. Having a coach or the announcer lead prayers isn’t ok (since both are employees of the government since they work for a public school). If you think this is a great blow against those evil atheists fine but its really a good legal compromise.
