Glad i caught your post right before leaving for the night.
Doooh! My bad. Either way he’s a TYRANT!

Burning, as in Jim Bunning, baseball Hall of Famer...
Not yet, but he’ll die sooner or later. ;-)
Crap. I should know better than posting from the iPad with this godforsaken auto-correct...
That’s the kind of thing I usually do.
Make an error myself while correcting someone else’s error.
I consider it humbling. :-)
If you have some information or some idea that you think will help make your case, fine, but if you're just going to yell at the guy, how is that going to change his mind?
Most judges just ignore abuse or negative feedback. It may even stiffen their resolve.
I need the spell check that knows what I am thinking not one that suggests what it pleases.
How about his home address?
Name of his wife and kids?
So a low level secretary gets assigned to go through and delete all the spam voice mails. Big whoop.
David L. Bunning (born 1966) is a United States federal judge. Bunning is the son of former Sen. Jim Bunning, a Hall of Fame baseball pitcher who represented Kentucky in the United States Senate from 1999 to 2011.
Born in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky, Bunning received a B.A. from the University of Kentucky in 1988 and a J.D. from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 1991. He was a law clerk in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Kentucky in 1991, and was an assistant U.S. Attorney in that office from 1991 to 2002.
Bunning was nominated by President George W. Bush on September 4, 2001, to a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, which was vacated by William O. Bertelsman. On December 10, 2001, representatives of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Federal Judiciary testified before the United States Senate Committee of the Judiciary for the AMA’s majority opinion that Bunning was unqualified for the position of a Federal District Court Judge due to his age of 35, a lack of complex civil case experience as a federal attorney, and his “middle-of-the-class law school” experience at the University of Kentucky. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on February 14, 2002, and received his commission on February 19, 2002.
Fourteen years after Judge Bunning’s confirmation, on September 3, 2015, he issued a contempt of court ruling against Rowan County clerk Kim Davis, who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on her personal religious beliefs. Judge Bunnings decision came at a pivotal juncture in the gay marriage debate. Judge Bunning said in his ruling, Personal opinions, including my own, are not relevant to today. The idea of natural law superseding this courts authority would be a dangerous precedent indeed. Throughout Daviss months-long legal battle, Judge Bunning made it clear that he knew his decision to force the Rowan County clerk to follow the law put him at odds with the deeply held personal beliefs of a lot of Americans, himself included. 
Our form of government will not survive unless we, as a society, agree to respect the U.S. Supreme Courts decisions, regardless of our personal opinions, Judge Bunning wrote in his August 2015 decision ordering Davis to begin issuing marriage licenses. Davis is certainly free to disagree with the courts opinion, as many Americans likely do, but that does not excuse her from complying with it. To hold otherwise would set a dangerous precedent.
