So big deal. I'm Level 20 and a guru. It still doesn't mean I like what the Supreme Court handed down today. I would celebrate, but frankly I am mad.

So I guess this and a couple of bucks will get me a size limited soda in New York, right. In the meantime, at least Holder's getting what he deserves. I would encourage conservatives to make sure Obama gets what he deserves in November, if no sooner.
You!

    I don't understand why reaching Level 20 would change what you think on the issue. Watch. I'm gonna reach Level 20 having answered next to no political questions.

    They really let us down.

    Yep. All the more reason to get Obama out since the SCOTUS judges serve for life. Whoever is in the White House next term could appoint two, maybe even three new justices. And that will resonated for the next thirty years.

    Didn't the Chief Justice, who is ultra conservative, side with the majority?

    Doesn't make it right.

    I didn't say it was right. The court leans right, and they couldn't overturn it. Must have a legal basis if the court couldn't make the cons in America happy.

    No, the court does not lean right - there are 4 to the right and 4 to the left - Kennedy is generally the swing vote, he is a moderate. This time Roberts was the swing vote.

    Obamacare now stands as a highly regressive tax on middle- and lower-income families, a tax on jobs, a tax on youth, a tax on health, a tax on freedom of choice. In his decision, Justice Roberts wrote, “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” This includes Mr. Obama and the congressional Democrats who voted for the Obamacare tax increase.

    Actually he is not a ultra conservative - never has been. He is right of center to be sure.
