Discussion:
Antonin Scalia's Death Could Mark End of Constitution
(too old to reply)

The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn't merely mark a
tragedy for Constitutional philosophy - it may mark the death of American
Constitutionalism as a whole.

Scalia's philosophy of jurisprudence is well-known and shaped two
generations of conservative thinkers: the Constitution ought to be
interpreted according to its original meaning. This shouldn't have been a
groundbreaking notion given that most legislation is interpreted according
to those rules, but because leftist jurists have spent a century chiseling
away at the meaning of the Constitution based on their personal political
beliefs, Scalia's reinvigoration of traditional interpretive methodologies
made him a historic figure. Scalia's brilliant, passionate writing style
made him author of some of the most famous dissents in Supreme Court
history, and channeled the modern conservative frustration with the
continuing abandonment of the Constitution.

Scalia's jurisprudence also reminded conservatives that there is no
substitute for proven Constitutional originalism. Most conservatives ignored
that when they greenlit the appointment of cipher John Roberts for Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court, a point I made when he was appointed. But
Scalia provided a consistent reminder that Constitutional philosophy
matters. It isn't just a game of doing whatever you want politically.
Constitutional jurisprudence is about recognizing the limits of the federal
government - and recognizing the limits of the politicization of the Court
itself.

In the end, Scalia's death could mark the end of the Constitution itself.
That's because the current Supreme Court rested, until Scalia's death, on
the vague, confused, indeterminate philosophy of Justice Anthony Kennedy,
who apparently decides cases on the basis of whether he has a solid bowel
movement that morning. That means that half the time, the Constitution has a
shot, as in Citizens United; the other half of the time, the Constitution
drains away into the mists of Kennedy's magical social justice thinking, as
in Obergefell.

Unlike Kennedy, Scalia represented a consistent vote for a Constitution
beyond modern progressive power politics. But with his death, President
Obama now has the power to appoint a fifth justice to join hard-left social
engineers Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth Bader
Ginsburg. If the Republican Senate allows President Obama to select Scalia's
successor, the left will have a complete monopoly on the Supreme Court.
Within the next few years, Citizens United will be overturned, restoring
limits on free speech; the Supreme Court will render the Second Amendment
meaningless by reinterpreting the right to bear arms as a non-personal
right; freedom of religion will be made subservient to same-sex marriage and
abortion priorities; the death penalty will be ruled unconstitutional;
unions will be allowed to continue confiscating the dollars of people who
disagree with them politically; redistricting along leftist lines will
return. Scalia ensured that the Supreme Court wasn't a transformative
institution; now it will become the chief tool in the left's arsenal.

It's a sad commentary on the state of conservative politics that the only
thing standing between the United States and the death of its founding
document was a brilliant 79-year-old jurist. But unless Republicans stand up
on their hind legs now, that will certainly be the case.

Correct.
And not a minute too soon, either. Progies were starting to lose hope
that a nice USSR-style system could ever be installed in America.

Before his death, most pundits were saying the next President will
nominate between 3 and 4 justices. That's nearly half the court.

Are you planning on blowing the Presidential election and giving it to
the Dems?

Congress must approve the President's nomination.

Are you planning on blowing the next four Congressional elections and
giving it to the Dems?

Scalia was a left wing cocksucker appointed by Reagan, a stooge who would
never cut it in today's world. The very fact that Scalia never believed in
rounding up the Queers and gassing them is proof of his Pinko ways. Never
trust an Italian to do a man's job. All that old fart did was sit around and
whine like a little bitch.

But since you're a fucking Queer, you like him because he kept you alive.

It would probably save us all
Sanders and a radical left Supreme Court would be the Khmer Rouge again.
150 million Americans, at least, would be murdered under a Sanders regime.
Yes, no doubt about it. For proof, just look at how many of their own people the governments of western Europe murdered after they adopted the same sort of changes advocated by Sanders.
Nice lame attempt at sarcasm, toady. What Sanders is advocating isn't
western European "social democracy."

Yeah it is, I agree (and I also agree that I'm unimaginative), but the
company I'm working for right now blocks NNTP traffic so Google is the
only means available there that I know of. Otherwise I never use Google
Groups.

DoD was one of the few fucktards I have killfiltered (now that I've
recently removed "someone else" and Robert Duncan) and so I wouldn't
even have seen him if I were posting from home. But now that I know he
may be capable of providing some entertainment, I'm going to remove him
from the bin, at least for now.

western Europe murdered after they adopted the
same sort of changes advocated by Sanders.
Nice lame attempt at sarcasm, toady. What Sanders
is advocating isn't western European "social
democracy."
What? Ted and Alice doesn't have the sack to post to
this group?
Fuck you, DoD. Google prevents cross-posting.
Why are you posting using Google, toady? That's for
unimaginative cretins. Oh, wait...
Yeah it is, I agree (and I also agree that I'm
unimaginative), but the company I'm working for right now
blocks NNTP traffic so Google is the only means available
there that I know of. Otherwise I never use Google Groups.
Why are you posting to Usenet while at work, toady? That's
not what your employer pays you to do. You're stealing,
toady. You're taking money from your employer and not doing
your job. Have you no shame?
How do you know that I'm not just doing that during breaks? Do
you think they'd otherwise allow me anywhere near a computer?
How often do you take "breaks", toady, and for how long? You've
posted to this group 14 times between 2:25 and 3:10 PST.
Uh oh. You ain't gonna tell my boss, are you?
No, of course not. Unlike some filthy shitbags I've encountered in
Usenet, I never try to take anything to real life.
Good for you, Rudy. Who were/are the shitbags you're referring to?
That's not really important. Suffice it to say that while I can be
plenty enough of an asshole to people who present what are plainly
loathsome and misanthropic ideas here, I confine my assholery to here.
While I suspect I would find them personally to be worthless shitbags if
I met them, I'm only concerned here with their wrong-headed and vile views.

The death of Supreme Court Justice
Antonin Scalia doesn't merely
mark a tragedy for Constitutional
philosophy - it may mark the
death of American
Constitutionalism as a whole.
Correct.
And not a minute too soon, either.
Progies were starting to lose hope
that a nice USSR-style system could
ever be installed in America.
Just think... a liberal like Sanders
and a liberal supreme court.....Say bye
bye to everything
America has ever been...
It would probably save us all
Sanders and a radical left Supreme Court
would be the Khmer Rouge again.

Cool story. Did you have a lot in common with him? I once told a

it would lead to an amiable real life meeting (why the fuck not?), but
he just totally ignored me from then on. I guess he took this shit

And not a minute too soon, either. Progies were starting to lose hope
that
a nice USSR-style system could ever be installed in America.
Just think... a liberal like Sanders and a liberal supreme court.....Say bye
bye to everything
America has ever been...
It would probably save us all
Sanders and a radical left Supreme Court would be the Khmer Rouge again.
150 million Americans, at least, would be murdered under a Sanders regime.
Yes, no doubt about it. For proof, just look at how many of their own
people the governments of western Europe murdered after they adopted the
same sort of changes advocated by Sanders.
Nice lame attempt at sarcasm, toady. What Sanders is advocating isn't
western European "social democracy."
What? Ted and Alice doesn't have the sack to post to this group?
He - toady - uses Google Groups to post. Lamer than lame...

So then you must agree that a "Sanders regime" would murder 150 million Americans. Got it.
A Sanders regime would be very bad for America. He provokes the kind of
mindless zealotry in his slavish followers that /could/ result in
concentration camps and mass murder.

You did. When you said "how many of their own people the governments of

Constitutionalism as a whole.
Scalia's philosophy of jurisprudence is well-known and shaped two
generations of conservative thinkers: the Constitution ought to be
interpreted according to its original meaning.
"Original Meaning?" For a guy who liked to call himself an Originalist, Fat Tony had some very strange, and what could truthfully be called "Highly Original" ideas about what Jefferson, Adams and the rest of them considered to be "free speech." He also entertained some really Original ideas about corporations being people found nowhere in any of the framers writings, and he apparently believed that his beloved Framers must have just been kidding around when they wrote The Fourth Amendment, along with pretty much all of The Bill of Rights, since he rarely missed an opportunity to viciously assault any part of either one that happened to come within his reach. Fat Tony was not a conservative; He was a straight up Statist who fawned over the Framers in his public statements while spitting on virtually everything they stood for at almost every opportunity while on the Bench.

The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn't merely mark a
tragedy for Constitutional philosophy - it may mark the death of
American Constitutionalism as a whole.
Scalia's philosophy of jurisprudence is well-known and shaped two
generations of conservative thinkers: the Constitution ought to be
interpreted according to its original meaning. This shouldn't have been
a groundbreaking notion given that most legislation is interpreted
according to those rules, but because leftist jurists have spent a
century chiseling away at the meaning of the Constitution based on their
personal political beliefs, Scalia's reinvigoration of traditional
interpretive methodologies made him a historic figure. Scalia's
brilliant, passionate writing style made him author of some of the most
famous dissents in Supreme Court history, and channeled the modern
conservative frustration with the continuing abandonment of the
Constitution.
Scalia's jurisprudence also reminded conservatives that there is no
substitute for proven Constitutional originalism. Most conservatives
ignored that when they greenlit the appointment of cipher John Roberts
for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, a point I made when he was
appointed. But Scalia provided a consistent reminder that Constitutional
philosophy matters. It isn't just a game of doing whatever you want
politically. Constitutional jurisprudence is about recognizing the
limits of the federal government - and recognizing the limits of the
politicization of the Court itself.
In the end, Scalia's death could mark the end of the Constitution
itself. That's because the current Supreme Court rested, until Scalia's
death, on the vague, confused, indeterminate philosophy of Justice
Anthony Kennedy, who apparently decides cases on the basis of whether he
has a solid bowel movement that morning. That means that half the time,
the Constitution has a shot, as in Citizens United; the other half of
the time, the Constitution drains away into the mists of Kennedy's
magical social justice thinking, as in Obergefell.
Unlike Kennedy, Scalia represented a consistent vote for a Constitution
beyond modern progressive power politics. But with his death, President
Obama now has the power to appoint a fifth justice to join hard-left
social engineers Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth
Bader Ginsburg. If the Republican Senate allows President Obama to
select Scalia's successor, the left will have a complete monopoly on the
Supreme Court. Within the next few years, Citizens United will be
overturned, restoring limits on free speech; the Supreme Court will
render the Second Amendment meaningless by reinterpreting the right to
bear arms as a non-personal right; freedom of religion will be made
subservient to same-sex marriage and abortion priorities; the death
penalty will be ruled unconstitutional; unions will be allowed to
continue confiscating the dollars of people who disagree with them
politically; redistricting along leftist lines will return. Scalia
ensured that the Supreme Court wasn't a transformative institution; now
it will become the chief tool in the left's arsenal.
It's a sad commentary on the state of conservative politics that the
only thing standing between the United States and the death of its
founding document was a brilliant 79-year-old jurist. But unless
Republicans stand up on their hind legs now, that will certainly be the
case.

Not while I am still alive. The time is fast approaching for that 2nd
Amendment solution since the politicans are so focused on thier own graft,
greed and swag and enough of the population has been so miseducated. That
Clinton is even still viable and the media is not clamoring for her arrest
is a travesty and says volumes about the corruption of the media. That so
many millienials are clamoring for Bernie is an affront to decency. Clearly
the miseducation system has glossed over the entire 20th century and the
millions upon millions of bodies spawned by socialism.

Apparently they haven't considered that if a percentage of the population
isn't willing to be looted to support the leaching and political classes
that they will have to enforce it at bayonet point and I don't see these
safe space douchebags as capable of that. So they will have to use the
hated police to do it for them.

century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time,
with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."--

The "politicians" you're complaining about, who have done the bad
things to us---are conservatives, and will continue to do WORSE if
people (like you, for instance) don't understand that destroying
"politicians" isn't the answer---it's the lack of understanding what a
"politician" is Supposed to do.

Conservatives (every time) when in power---are so viciously opposed to
change---that their goal is to either get power--or destroy those who
refuse to give it to them

For 40 years---conservatives, pissed, hating, dreaming of the day when
they can RETURN to an era before 1954 (brown v board), dismantle the
Civil Rights Act (which they are doing now), institute their belief
that ONLY an "elite" should run the nation (top wealth class), and
institute a religous foundation based on biblical laws or beliefs.

NO president can destroy "wall street"---we need it---we just need to
RETURN to the laws/reguations that allowed it to work

NO president can demand a religious test for laws---that isn't
"original intent"

Conservatives have altered the "original intent" so fucking much--but
always because it suits their purpose

It's the "Purpose" they have---that's fucking us.

All regressive "progressives" hate the Constitution. They tell us so:

"Living political constitutions must be Darwinian in structure and in
practice. Society is a living organism and must obey the laws of life,
not of mechanics; it must develop. All the progressives ask or desire is
permission—in an era when “development,” “evolution,” is the scientific
word—to interpret the Constitution according to the Darwinian principle."

Woodrow Wilson - 1912


"A Reality Many Americans Don’t Want to Admit: Our Constitution is
Outdated and Broken"

"But the truth of the matter is it was written over 200 years ago. We
didn’t have the internet, cell phones, satellites, semi-automatic
weapons—hell, we didn’t even have electricity.

"So it’s always somewhat baffled me to see people cling so tightly to
something that was written so long ago. To see highly educated
individuals try and determine the correct “interpretation of the law
based on the Constitution” for situations that didn’t even exist when it
was written, just doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense."

Pretty scary.
It's not as if the Constitution is perfect, but the regressive proggies
don't want *any* constitution at all. They claim to have a superior,
unapproachable (except for other proggies) vision for running our lives,
and they want nothing to stand in their way. This is why I am right in
referring to them as regressive. They want to regress to something like
the era of the divine right of kings. The people - individual persons -
are to have no say.

The Constitution is neither outdated nor broken. Its original meaning is dead, ignored, or has been "interpreted" out of existence, but when it still had a semblance to what was originally written and intended, it actually worked very well. But those days are long gone, and "originalists" like Fat Tony and William Rehnquist are every bit as guilty of countless acts of creative destruction of the framers intentions as any far left liberal. None of those arrogant pigfuckers are innocent. They have all taken liberties with their big black magic markers over the years and basically blacked out Originalist sentences, and ideas, and phrases that they found to be politically or personally irritating. And now, after about a century of "creative reinterpretation," we are to the point where complete fucking nonsense like Obamacare gets treated as "Constitutionally Sound" not because the Constitution says anything even remotely supportive of it, but because a whole, completely unconnected daisy chain of other batshit ideas related to the tax code were creatively reinterpreted (Is there a pattern developing here?) as having something to do with the alleged soundness of the government forcing every citizen to buy healthcare.

Wonderful quote from a man who by being educated far, far beyond his severely limited intelligence, did more irreparable damage to this country in eight years than any other single human being.

In the end, Scalia's death could mark the end of the Constitution itself.
That's because the current Supreme Court rested, until Scalia's death, on
the vague, confused, indeterminate philosophy of Justice Anthony Kennedy,
who apparently decides cases on the basis of whether he has a solid bowel
movement that morning. That means that half the time, the Constitution has a
shot, as in Citizens United; the other half of the time, the Constitution
drains away into the mists of Kennedy's magical social justice thinking, as
in Obergefell.
Unlike Kennedy, Scalia represented a consistent vote for a Constitution
beyond modern progressive power politics. But with his death, President
Obama now has the power to appoint a fifth justice to join hard-left social
engineers Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth Bader
Ginsburg. If the Republican Senate allows President Obama to select Scalia's
successor, the left will have a complete monopoly on the Supreme Court.
Within the next few years, Citizens United will be overturned, restoring
limits on free speech; the Supreme Court will render the Second Amendment
meaningless by reinterpreting the right to bear arms as a non-personal
right; freedom of religion will be made subservient to same-sex marriage and
abortion priorities; the death penalty will be ruled unconstitutional;
unions will be allowed to continue confiscating the dollars of people who
disagree with them politically; redistricting along leftist lines will
return. Scalia ensured that the Supreme Court wasn't a transformative
institution; now it will become the chief tool in the left's arsenal.
It's a sad commentary on the state of conservative politics that the only
thing standing between the United States and the death of its founding
document was a brilliant 79-year-old jurist. But unless Republicans stand up
on their hind legs now, that will certainly be the case.

Change is a constant. Do you still believe the same thing they believed in the 1700's?
