She actually said she believes in forced labor?? Really??
Does she have a totalitarian streak in her????
Leftists support it.
How exactly did this Communistic twerp get onto the Supreme Court?
“No man can have a right to impose an unchosen obligation, an unrewarded duty or an involuntary servitude on another man There can be no such thing as the right to enslave.” Ayn Rand — “Man’s Rights,” The Virtue of Selfishness
Go for it; I think it'd be interesting to have lawyers fighting for the Constitution (13th amd in this case) and against the judicial tyranny for once.
She should lead by example, say a year or two without that govt check.
Sotomayor gives us another reason to vote against Hitlery!
Obama + Republican Leadership + a Congress that believes that it (and government in general) is above the law.
Maybe we need fewer laws and more personal responsibility, and longer sentences. Fewer Wide Latinas too.
By millions of Americans sitting at home because their favorite did not get the nomination, and a full blown media blitz promoting the userper.
Pro-Bono is the cult of the social justice warriors. The infrastructure is all in place for 90% of lawyers to fall into left-wing, government-sponsored causes.
You have no right to make people work without pay.
Scratch a liberal. Find a totalitarian underneath. Every time.
We already have forced volunteerism to graduate high school. The numbskulls that have graduated under that requirement will probably see nothing wrong with this at all.
Obamacare set the precedent that the feral government owns your body. How else could they force you to pay maintenance fees on it?
What is that thing called where one person owns another person’s body?
Democrats - Supporting involuntary servitude since at least the early 19th century.
They believe in it for doctors, so why not lawyers?
Yes. ALL leftists do. Leftism is totalitarian by nature.
