Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia, & Kennedy! All males, all conservative right-wing-nuts. What do you expect?

A friend of mine told me that it seems like all you have to do to get a regular column in the Galveston Daily News is to run for office and lose. He called the "authors" of these columns the 3 Stooges and the 3 Losers! Another friend told me that she quit reading their articles because it made her stomach hurt!

Kennedy is a 'conservative right wing nut"?
Has anybody told him about it....?[wink]
The last appointee to SCOTUS was Justice Elena Kegan, in 2010.
Prior to that, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, in 2009.
The other Justices are the same as they have been, with Justices Ginsberg and Souter on the left, and Justice Kennedy split in the middle to slightly left overall.
With that in mind, consider that since 2012, meaning with THIS court sitting, the Obama Administration has been defeated in the Supreme Court by UNANIMOUS 9-0 vote, 13 times.
That's 13 times, defeat by unanimous vote. Including the 4 members firmly and emphatically liberal, and the one who's as likely to be as not, ALL voting with the 'right wing nuts ' against the Administration. And, 3 of the unanimous voters are female.
I bet that goes right past 'stomach hurting' to full blown nausea...
I believe that 13 is a record....[beam][beam][beam][beam][beam][beam]
