Thank you very much. I was afraid I was the only one worried about this. And special thanks to newsoul and greencmp, for hugs and small reassurances. I wonder how well scotch and chocolate chip cookies go together, I need both.
Wrabbit2000's comments on the Constitution are especially apt. What I miss in the political discussions in America is some sense that there are principles to be followed, even if they make us uncomfortable. I think the Constitution is one of those principles.
Ok, following the Constitution will cost a politician some votes, maybe even cost him his job, but we are asking soldiers to die for the Constitution. Surely, losing popular approval is a relatively small price to pay.
We've Sotomayor with her emphasis on "empathy," and Roberts and his (I hope, one time erroroneous) decision on Obamacare. Throw in Big Sis, and there will be a big step taken towards the destruction of the Constitution, and the Judiciary as an impartial branch of government seperate from politics.
You may be a great person, I don't know, but that was a particularly ugly sentence. As much as I dislike her (and dozens of other politicians), wishing them dead is beyond the pale. Perhaps you're new to ATS, certainly you and I have not had a chance to talk, but I'd much prefer you don't speak like that again.
What she needs is a heaven applied cerebral hemmorage!
