Well, since we do not want those nasty ol' Conservatives interpreting the Constitution, shall we have only neoMarxists rewriting it?

"As of Thursday, Trump set a record for the most ever federal appeals judges confirmed during the first year of a presidency, Axios reports. Trump has successfully appointed 12 so far; President Barack Obama confirmed just three in his first year, and President George W. Bush confirmed six. He beat out presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy, who each confirmed 11."

"For Democrats, filling so many open seats with conservative jurists is worrisome. Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, explained the significance in a statement Thursday.

 

“The Supreme Court hears between 100 and 150 cases each year out of the more than 7,000 it’s asked to review,” she said. “But in 2015 alone, more than 55,000 cases were filed in federal appeals courts. … In a way, circuit courts serve as the de facto Supreme Court to the vast majority of individuals who bring cases. They are the last word.”

 

“The speed at which these judges are being rammed through the process,” she continued, “is stunning.”

 

Liberal advocacy group Alliance for Justice warned on Twitter that Trump’s nominees, which it dubs “extreme,” are quickly filling the courts:

 

But for the Trump Administration, the swelling number of lifetime-appointed judges marks a major — and lasting — victory."

Hopefully they're far more qualified than this trump choice.

I chided a Born Again Evangelical I know for his support of and vote for 'the donald',.  He said, " I know who Trump will name to the Court, so I just held my nose and voted."  That was it.  Nothing more of substance in response. He knew his priorities were 'right'.  Pun intended.

 

That was the meat.  That's what the RRRR got.  All else is gravy.

 

This fellow teaches religion [and politics] to youth and adults every Sunday at the Sunday School of his church.  When he travels in his 'fifth wheel', not as much as he used to, he teaches at each associated congregation across the country with similar views, wherever he happens to be as guest lecturer.  He even manages to do that when hung-over from too many gin gimlets the night before.  He loves 'em.  I know that to be fact.  He said so and I made 'em.

 

My wife  has banned him and his wife from our house and our presence.  She will no lopnger tolerate the continual diatribe and the role they loudly proclaim for women in our society. He is a witty, funny guy when he is not "engaged".   Peddled pills you've all grown fond of... from his own business, so he did.  He is not dumb...at least not that way.  He does say, without a pause, that those who oppose his "mission" are his enemy, that he serves God, not man.  Pretty vehement about what he considers 'just consequences' too.

 

I suspect you may know a person like that.  He's not a monster, he's a man.  Not a very well man anymore I'd say, but a man, nevertheless.  Since he now views what I am as his enemy, I guess that makes him mine as well.  I'm more than a bit sad about that.  I responded to his last 'epistle' in defense of 'the donald' by saying, "You bought it, you own it.  Just so you understand, God forgives.  I don't!"  Like I said, I'm more than a bit sad about that...but it's the truth.

Hey @alferdpacker  Let us know when/if they get there.

I've long ago applied and been accepted for a position as an imp - after a "training period", of course... 

Have I sold my soul?  

Don't be silly - there never has been any such thing. 

The competition for positions is intense - what with all the republicans - fortunately, they mostly don't realistically plan ahead...

 


Chuckle, chuckle.  Made my day.  Rationality, like epsom salts, sure will cure what ails you.

The 1% is smirking and high fiving, and the rest who cheer about it will find out why in good time.
