THE BROWNS BOARD

Judge Gorsuch

I don't think the dems have much choice, but that being said, they should pull out any thing to delay it they can. What the republicans did last year, and it was a year ago, to prevent an up or down vote on Garland was horrible representation of what our political system has become. So if they drag it out an extra week or so that would be ok with me.

Fair enough. I think merrick.garland should have gotten a hearing too.

But we have one vote for spite.

Next?

Wrong. Educate yourself liberal.... lame duck presidents don't get their choice of a Supreme Court Judge.

You better believe the opposite would have occurred with a Republican prez.

This is not exclusive to a party,

So....the longest period between getting nominated and having a confirmation hearing before Garland was 100 days set in 1916 for Louis Brandies. Garland went 300+ days without a hearing. Even your article says it, there is a precedent for rejecting, not a precedent for just not having a hearing in a reasonable amount of time.

So I realize some of you are Democrats, Trump haters or just general malcontent but I'm curious as to what will be the basis of the opposition to the Supreme Court nomination here? Is there anything of substance or are you just mad about Merrick Garland?

It's a shame that a Supreme Court Justice nominee turns into a political circus, no matter what side of the aisle you lean toward. They are supposed to uphold the law of the land, not uphold the wishes of a political party.

 

I'm an American first. I wish our elected folks would realize that as well.

 

Sorry I didn't answer your question, I'm simply disgusted with our political system, and have been for a long time.

I'm with you there Bob. Even though I'm pleased with the idea that the court will stay balanced with Gorsuch.

And that's what conservative judges do duh....uphold the law of the land, which in turn is not what liberal judges do.

 

Open your eyes...did you not hear about the recent ruling from that scumbag judge in Hawaii? These liberal fuckers legislate from the bench.

 

Upholding the law of the land to liberals is outdated, the Constitution is outdated, the Founding Fathers are outdated.

 

Put the "conservative' label on Gorsuch if you like but there shouldn't be a label if all judges adhered to upholding the law of the land.

Its only because of liberal judges that we label a judge "conservative".

Ted Cruz reminded the gallery that 10 years ago the same body of Senators (including then Barry, Hillary, Joe Biden and Kerry) nominated Gorsuch for the federal court of appeals....

 

no disaproval then - why now if not for the politicking of the SCOTUS

Leave it to feinstein to be worried that Gorsuch adheres to our Constitution writer's intents...instead of

inventing liberal rationalizations to ignore it altogether.

 

How far the left has sunk. Big serious trouble.

speaking of witches... here's one - a former student of Gorsuch's....claims he made sexist remarks about pregnant women.

Gorsuch found out about the letter she sent out.... at his nomination proceedings...

she's another obaMao appointee - another dirty trick player.

This is a case where Gorsuch gave a dissenting opinion that's being held against him. "IF" the facts presented in this article are true and not slanted, which is a good possibility, I'm at a loss to explain what Gorsuch was thinking.

The cab was operational?

 

Apparently so since he got hooked the trailer and drove it away correct?

 

If that is in fact the case what would be the dangers from the inclement weather?

Im guessing that he was low on gas which was why he had turned off snd was freezing. Because help wasnt coming soon that night he drove himself to the gas station. The issue of whether he was freezing or not didnt seem to be part of gorsuchs dissent. What gorsuch argued was that it was irrelevant the company still had the right to fire him despite clear circumstances pointing to faulty equipment beyond the drivers control.

they demand another activist, dishonest progressive hack on the court to suit them.

 

Change the rules - they did when it suited them, it's the only way to do any good things now.

I read that the cab of the truck was not climate controlled somewhere if memory serves. Let me find a link.

That would mean the same thing whether he was stopped on the side of the road or traveling to his destination. Can't imagine that's true.

And he drove off leaving the load and returned rather than wait for help.

Great News. If the dems are dumb enough to fillibuster a more than qualified supreme court justice in Gorsuch then change the senate rules like Harry Reid did and confirm supreme court nominees with a simple majority and while on Trump's watch hopefully he will have an opportunity to get a few more in place.
