Wisdom Rules Over Law, And Michael Jackson Is Still Dead

UPDATE: As expected, the wise Latina woman has been confirmed. Cross your fingers, and hold onto your guns.

The Senate Judiciary committee has voted 13-6, with Lindsey Graham the only dissenting Republican, to confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor. As has been reported, Judge Sotomayor brought controversy to the confirmation process when she commented that a wise Latina woman would more often reach a better decision than a white man because of her rich life experiences.

The vote now moves to the full Senate where she is expected to be easily confirmed. Hold on to your guns. This lady is a radical in the vein of Glorious Leader. They did not see it in Obama. They do not see it in her. Wish us luck. We are going to need it.

In other news, it has been reported that Michael Jackson is still dead. Oh. And I think his nose is still missing.

The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?

SCOTUS Says Illegal Aliens Allowed To Steal Your Identity

Believe it or not, the Supreme Court Of The United States have voted UNANIMOUSLY to say that if an illegal alien is using someone else’s identity, he cannot be prosecuted unless it can be shown that the person KNEW that the SSN belonged to someone already! Note that the person can still be found guilty of a lesser charge such as falsifying paperwork or misrepresentation etc, but to find him guilty of the maximum fine of aggravated ID theft it has to be shown he KNEW the number was fake. Forgive my cynicism, but it is impossible to prove what someone THOUGHT.

The case is based upon a case of an illegal worker in a Moline, IL steel plant who (I assume) got cold feet about using another person’s ID. His employer called in authorities and the man was arrested. He plead guilty to several lesser charges and not guilty to the aggravated charge. He lost and was found guilty on all counts. His case was appealed all the way up and here we have it.

Ignorance is Bliss will now be a valid defense. What ever happened to Ignorance of the law is no excuse? Will I now be able to say that Your honor, this guy stopped at a bus stop and just gave me his car. I had no idea that it was stolen. Or, according to a friend of mine, I borrowed my cousin’s gun and tried to rob a store. Your honor, I didn’t even know it was real. I didn’t know that there were bullets in it. (Ok, extreme case and I KNOW there are laws about using even a fake gun, but I take license t say what I want here.)

What is most troubling is that it was a UNANIMOUS decision. I am still very curious as to how conservative judges can agree with this. I think that this is going to open up an entire can of worms. Everyone who has been convicted of ID theft can now flood the courts with appeals based on this ruling.

Ignorance is bliss. Congress must be in an eternal state.

Barney Frank Is A Breedophobe

It is a well known fact that Bawney Fwank (D-MA) is gay. He and his boyfriend, in fact, were involved in a scandel where a brothel was (apparently) being run from his home a few years back. The guy is obnoxious, routinely blames everyone but himself and flat out lost his mind over these AIG bonuses.

Well, because Supreme Court Justice Scalia believes that some issues (gay marriage, consensual sodomy, etc) should remain at the the state level and away from activist judges, Fwank has accused the SCOTUS member of being a homophobe.

I submit that the idiot congressional imbecile is, in fact, a Breedophobe. After all, Justice Scalia has shown great restraint and careful thought regarding his decisions. Fwank, however, flies off at the mouth like the juvenile girl that he is.
