Our fearful leaders - Senator Sessions & Co.

The Sotomayor hearings last week were too hard for some to bear. Observing Senator Sessions and others talk to her like she was retarded was so absurd, we had to turn off the tv. Good thing that she came off as an intelligent, educated, articulate woman. Sessions and Co. were an embarrassment to the U.S. Senate.

excerpt from:

The New Yorker




Are you supposed to agree with people just because you are from the same ethnic group? Even if you think their ideas are way off the mark?

Marie-Theresa :

Good Luck with your Activism for Dream Act, that for more is natural, convenient, logical and Rational in Economics, it is Kindness, Humanity and Justice.

I admire you and I think that you are a human being that is alive and not a zombie, or a vegetal. You have a heart.

Thanks for excellent rerports and for your presence in the internet. I continue coming to your pages.

There is another activism going on for Injustice :

Anti-Sonia Hypocrisy and Superb Ignorance :

The Ricci Decision of the Supreme Court and Conservative Judicial Activism

There is a Great Dissatisfaction and Protest of Great Lawyers, Jurists, Experts in Constitutional Law, Professors of Law. Great Inconformity and Disagreement with the Supreme Court, the Ricci decission and other previous ones.

There are so many learned articles condemning the Supreme Court on Ricci and other decisions, that I have assembled a page of links on these hot-red topics.
