Yeah no, you don't get to play the "use google do research" card when you made the assertion and have failed to backup your opinion. You made the claim, you get to back it up, its not on anyone else to support your opinion for you. That's an obvious attempt to dodge the issue.

People weren't asking for anything comprehensive here, you failed to provide even a single fact to support your statement. If you don't want to then whatever, fair enough but don't act indignant or surprised if people assume you're full of shit. All I'm getting from this so far is "I dont like liberals" which is ironically as close minded and politically motivated as the criticism against her. There are plenty of liberals I don't like but that doesn't make them bad at their jobs.

So I ask again:

Kagan has been the wrong person for the job -- she is hardcore in her liberal ideology which takes precedence to her interpretation of the law. She is by far the least qualified ever to be appointed, and appears to me to be outright dumb in many areas.

What decisions have rankled you here? A sampling is fine. How have her specific political beliefs (which ones) affected those decisions? Why is she "least qualified", which metrics are you referring to?

I genuinely have an open mind in this area and I've read several of decisions already and I'm not seeing anything big here so feel free to point it out.

That is the only response deserved since you and a few others you like to play the "Prove it" card Ad nauseam.

Voting record is fact, not opinion. Her past experiences are fact, not opinion. I backed it up with the voting record link, I'm not going to spend my time sending you links upon links - do that on your own time.

If you don't understand what you are reading (which you didn't bother to read at all), that's on you.

Still waiting to hear about all of these cases where her liberal ideology was detrimental. Bueller?

It starts by paying attention to what's going on in the world on a daily basis -- unfortunately for the majority of forum warriors, that practice cannot be taught (or linked). I know you like to expect others to do your research, but I've yet to see anyone offer to do so.

If you don't know where to start with the all powerful linking, then start here:

Ontheissues.org

Then feel free to look for neutral search terms like "Supreme, Court, Roundup, Voting, Record, Decisions," etc and follow the links. you'll find ones like (just one example):

NYT 2014

Now it's up to you to figure out everything from here. There's millions of articles out there Verno, most are just repeats. Fortunately for you, voting records are perfectly clear and not hard to find. They cannot be argued, they're fact.

Report back to me your findings.

Pourquoi? Her credentials seem exemplary and (short) voting record seem fine to me.

If I were to guess based on past posts it's because she's a liberally-appointed judge.

The only way the country works is if the people in her position vote according to the law rather than on their feelings, and there's been too many cases in the past ten years or so that have been divided on political lines in the Supreme Court. It's too bad that a few of them forget that they were appointed to uphold the law and not hold down a certain political line.

No. No no no no no no no no no.

The USSC is there to decide of laws overstep themselves. And they often do. Not to mention they often rely upon the Constitution, which is deliberately vague and our interpretation of it has swung wildly over its history.

PropheT got it right. I don't see how you can say "No no no" then make a point that does not dispute his point in the least. In fact, you instead made the same valid point that builds upon what he stated.

ProheT stated political lines need thrown out once you are in the USSC voting on the laws -- absolutely spot on. Then you said NONO, they vote on the laws that overstep themselves. Absolutely true, but PropheT already stated that, you just added a few words.

I think you just like to argue Beams...


As for my earlier statement:

Kagan has been the wrong person for the job -- she is hardcore in her liberal ideology which takes precedence to her interpretation of the law. She is by far the least qualified ever to be appointed, and appears to me to be outright dumb in many areas. (I won't bore you with the many links, you'd dismiss them anyway).

The supreme court is the one place that demands to be as neutral as possible, with the most amount of courtroom experience possible -- regardless of party lines, this is what we all should shoot for.

Huh?
Prophet said they need to vote based on law.
I said no, because sometimes the law is wrong and they need to overturn it. There isn't always law to point to that says the law they are overturning is wrong. Even when it is, it's usually the Constitution, and they rely upon their individual interpretation, not the actual letter of the Constitution nor prior rulings.

In other words, they use their feelings on the Constitution.



Do you understand how the USSC works?

Hear cases, interpret the law based on the law of the land.

Now that *you* understand how it works thanks to my simplified (yes I put it on "Laymen" Difficulty) way to define their primary duty, re-read everything prior to saying "Huh?" and realize that were wrong in "No No"ing Prophet...

A dedicated LoL line? What does this mean for Net Neutrality?

Very likely prohibited under Net Neutrality since it would give special, preferential treatment, to the game's traffic flow.

Net Neutrality is more about 'fairness' than innovation.

Net Neutrality is about Government running it, nothing else. Fairness to one person is corruption to another.

As always in life, the only way to play your cards is with your ambition, voice, and wallet. The less those 3 things matter in your life, the more screwed you become... fair or not.

Apparently the ability to make a coherent sentence is no longer required to serve on the Supreme Court.

How about cutting all the fluff annoying cutscenes immediately when we want to without having to hack some shit. That would at least make me want to load up the game.

Then remove the 5-second-a-pop skinning animation among other long useless in-game animations that adds nothing but time wasting. That would make me want to play the game for more than 5 minutes.

Start with the basics...

Relaxing fitness standards for the military lazyasses... how ridiculous. But 70% of the population being ineligible to serve? That's a load of shit.

I was a tech controller (oldschool "cyber" -- crypto, wan, multiplexers, crypto, circuits, etc) and maintained just fine. Everyone can and will or they are on the fat boy program or kicked out of the military.

Keep the "soft" out of the military, it's not for those people. Unfit people wanna work for them, contracting will make them way more money and they can be a gigantic as they like.

I have no problems with being heavy, I think the "war on fat" is stupid as fuck. However when we are talking military, that's a whole different level of expectations.

Kindle DX for reading, nothing comes even remotely close to e-ink. Nexus 10 for kids/games/experimenting. Nexus 5 for greatest business phone ever. PC for everything that matters in data and gaming.

Just predictable saturation and the realization from the uninformed masses that tablets are just fun distractions with virtually zero innovation -- not like it wasn't obviously coming....

There we go again more lame lipservice from Obama pushing his "regulation" mandates pretending to poo poo Sony for pulling the movie due to possible terrorist attacks -- while knowing full well he'd pull a "Benghazi" on Sony.

He'd blame them fully if they showed the film and some type of attack happened - just like he blamed some stupid silly movie for the very serious 9/11 Benghazi attack.

Now we all know it shouldn't have been pulled, but I'd be willing to bet Sony is a million times more bothered with Obama proven cowardice and likely response than any type of attack if it happened to happen, and they'd be demonized just like the poor little movie guy from before...

It's weird that you can't distinguish between a president criticizing self-censorship in the face of terrorist threats and a CIA assessment that a film influenced worldwide U.S. embassy protests. Had they gone through with releasing the comedy, in the extremely improbable event that NK launched an attack on us, I very much doubt that Sony would be a topic the president would be discussing between military response plans.

What's weird is that you can't distinguish between fact and fiction of the subject. But that's not my job, I'm just pointing out that Obama is a finger pointer who plays the blame game, and most often is far misguided on who he should be pointing at.

You specifically addressed it to both of us.
Do you read your own posts or just write them?


Edit: Hahah oops. Mea culpa. It was "you lack both" not "you both lack". I apologize. I guess it's time I take my own reading comprehension class.

No worries seph, I give you respect for integrity -- you don't see it much anymore, especially in forums.

I've said it plenty of times, so has others. We think it generates hits, or perhaps blue or whomever just likes to throw in come partisan shenanigans occasionally, who knows.
