Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

^ What a bunch of rambling, pointless, almost evasive nonsense. I like how he talks in abstract about his parents' background, and what he does as a judge, and somehow in summary "those are some of the experiences that, uh, that have shaped me as a person."

What ever became of that putz?

ist, that is exactly the problem with the courts here. empathy and all that hippy shit, as you say, has room in the legislature and not in the court.

Apparently your "smell-o-nets" isn't working, and the unmistakable scent of sarcasm didn't make it to you over the smell of the dead fish below.

But it was sarcasm. I was being sarcastic.

Pathos.

Amen bro'.

I can say, "amen," right?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
