    Today's gridlock can be traced directly to the Bork nomination in 1987. Senator Joe Biden (our "post-partisan" VP) led the successful effort to change a Senate review of the nominees' qualifications to judge, to a guessing game about how the nominee would vote on issues of the day.

    The unanimous Brown v Board of Education decision is instructive. Read the record of the Senate Committee investigations of the justices involved. Not a single mention of integration or anything else addressed in the decision.

    Mapp v Ohio was decided by justices who had never been asked during confirmation hearings about the breadth of applicability of the Bill of Rights. Roe v Wade was decided by justices whose views on abortion were never addressed in confirmation.

    The Roberts and Alito hearings are instructive. Both were sitting federal judges at the time of their Senate confirmation hearings. Both records read like impeachment hearings.

    Satire is not a genre understood by the ideologues.

    There is a coterie of leftist jihadist missionaries from the One and Only True Church of Statism All Others Must Convert or Die that runs roughshod over the entire sub-forum. It's sad, really. Reasoned discourse is impossible without the four or five religious zealots taking over the discussion.

    Yes, I called them religious zealots. Their religion may not involve a God, but it is a religion nonetheless.

    This is the closest thing to brilliance I've seen on the Politics subforum. Impressive.

    Well put. Not often that the argument is laid out that succinctly.

    Countries...well, states at least. I don't think the IDF is speaking for an entire country here.

    Extroverted societies forget about the contribution of the individual.
