I never heard of this ANYWHERE.

I accidentaly hit a link unknowingly on a "web designer" web site and up popped this story!

Providential? We can only hope - otherwise we will all be invoking our Second Amendment Rights!

Aw Right! Now they're talking my language. Put the Constitution in front of their faces and tell them that this is all they need for interpretation. Anything else and they will be run them out of office. No more backpedaling by our ELECTED representatives. Take em to the wall.

I think this trend -- using "international" precedent in formulating Supreme Court opinion -- is as vile, disgusting, and dangerous as anything in American history.

Unfortunately, the public is largely unaware of it and its lethality.

Never happen. And y'all know it. SCOTUS is there for life.

Move along, citizens, there's nothing to see here, go back to your lives, "Friends" is on in ten minutes, anyway...

Well, Sen. Arlene Spectre delved into Scottish law during the Klintoon impeachment proceedings, so why not the Supremes?

After all, multi-culturalism and globalism is where it's at today, and the justices want to be seen as cool dudes and dudettes.....even though most of them are a banana-peel away from slipping off this mortal coil.

I remember this came up last summer or fall. Democrats did the usual thing and justified it with idiotic comparisons or calling European laws superior.

Personally i want to staple a copy of the constitution to the forehead of the judges, when I'm done i want to staple a copy of the declaration of Independence to the foreheads of liberals.

"The impressions we create in this world are important and they can leave their mark," O'Connor said in remarks quoted in the Atlanta Constitution. Looking to foreign precedents "may not only enrich our own country's decisions, I think it may create that all-important good impression.""


The loons have lost it. MARK this woman she is a fruit.

O'Connor is going to have to retire pretty soon. I want to see Ruth Bader (Meinhoff) Ginsburg impeached. Hopefully that would send a message. If not, we take out another. Using foreign precedents is SO against their sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. It's treason, they've got to go.

Lest anyone get any ideas about my usage of the word "MARK" I used it because that is the word O'connor used.

"The impressions we create in this world are important and they can leave their

mark,"


O'Connor said in remarks quoted in the Atlanta Constitution. Looking to foreign precedents "may not only enrich our own country's decisions, I think it may create that all-important good impression.""

If the justices want to change the Law of the land, why don't they run for senator or representative?

Exactly, however, they have figured out that nobody will "impeach" them and therefore they have become "gods"!

Impeachment is one way to approach TREASON.
