Twice a Minority - Twice the Anger

Sotomayor is a woman.  That becomes a significant issue for the Supreme Court since there have been only two women before her (in how many years?).  Adding to this is her "identity,"  which some people think is worth fighting about.

Of course, those who are honest and know about politics realize this the normal ideological battle that happens between Republicans and Democrats whenever an important appointment comes up.  As usual, the other side has a need to say a few nasty things.

For some of you that have access to this book through a library, it is worth looking at.  You can't buy it anymore:  Twice a Minority, by Margarita Melville

Here is a link to information from N.C.L.R.* on the Sotomayor nomination and the backlash:

Thanks for excellent informations and your fight for Kindness and Humanity.


I can forgive the guys that work at Fox News for their Imbecility.

But Newt Gingrich, Pat Buchanam and Tom Tancredo should feel some respect for the positions in the Legislative or the Executive Branch that they have occupied.

These guys have no self respect and no respect for those dignities. They have been overcome by their own Hatred and Racism. They are defeated and they are losers, failures in life, useless old furniture.

I seriously doubt that the NPT trio returns to high positions.

Minorities should look at what these New Three Stooges preach and vote for the contrary Party.

They are worthy successors of "Larry, Moe, and Curly", the original "Three Stooges".
