re: Three 5-4 SCOTUS votes today. Lethal Injection, Redistricting and EPA decided. - Champagne
[quote]@ Conservatives seriously taking about making SCOTUS seats elected positions and/or removing their appellate rights via act of congress. The melt is real.[/quote] I was simply discussing the text of the Constitution and the appellate jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. Stay out of the co...

re: Three 5-4 SCOTUS votes today. Lethal Injection, Redistricting and EPA decided. - Champagne
[quote]Congress does not have the authority to limit an Article III court's jurisdiction. So, no. [/quote] None other than John Marshall himself said that “Congress is empowered to make exceptions to the appellate jurisdiction, as to law and fact, of the Supreme Court. These exceptions certainly ...

re: Three 5-4 SCOTUS votes today. Lethal Injection, Redistricting and EPA decided. - Champagne
[quote]Constitutionally speaking, Congress can't tell SCOTUS where to take a dump. The only way to term limit an Article III judge is to amend the Constitution.[/quote] What if Congress passed laws limiting SCOTUS jurisdiction to only cases involving original jurisdiction, as described in the C...

re: Three 5-4 SCOTUS votes today. Lethal Injection, Redistricting and EPA decided. - Champagne
[quote]This whole 60+ year run of SCOTUS "making shite up" is going to have to stop. The law cannot mean whatever 5 folks can agree on at the supreme court. They're judges/justices, not legislators.[/quote] It's not going to stop until Congress takes direct action against SCOTUS to limit its juris...

re: Look What Gay Marriage Did To The Freedom Of Speech In Canada - Champagne
[quote]Brave new world huh? [/quote] To blithely exclaim "that could never happen in the USA" is not realistic. Nobody has a crystal ball. The USA has to be on guard for this kind of ridiculous extremism....

re: Texas Liberals Sign Petition to Remove ‘Racist’ George Washington Statue - Champagne
This kind of thing was inevitable. I'm surprised that it took so long. How many generations of indoctrination can youth have before it finally takes root into action? We'll see if this gets legs....

re: "The moral decline of America" - Champagne
Legal gay marriage does not make the USA an immoral country. God Almighty will not condemn the USA just because we have gay marriage. He may condemn gay people, but, that's between Almighty God and the individual. ...

re: Does anyone on this board admire John Roberts? - Champagne
I see. Thanks. Well, I certainly hope that the legislators take care in committee to put forth language sufficiently meaningful to allow people to read the Congressional Reports and discern the legislative intent. ...

[quote]Spent hours and hours reading committee reports to do so as well.[/quote] Was there language in the committee reports with regard to the Obamacare ruling that guided the Court? I don't think there was. I'm not trying to argue with you, I'd just like to know if I missed something in t...

[quote]He is a true small government conservative, which is why so many false republican stooges dislike him.[/quote] I hope so. I write criticism of him on particular points. I am pleased to learn that many whom have given close study to his entire body of work tell us that what you write is ...

re: Does anyone on this board admire John Roberts? - Champagne
[quote]Liberals have been shining John Roberts's knob for three straight days now. Had they lost either one of those cases, regardless of Roberts's position on either, we would not be hearing all this praise about his "integrity," and he'd be roundly vilified for position on the marriage case.

re: My mind is open: Please explain to me why States' rights are so important... - Champagne
Your question is rather moot, sir, because there no longer exists anything of significance in the ancient and discarded constitutional notion known as "states' rights". FedGov rules absolutely now and for the rest of this century, at least....

re: It's time to legalize polygamy - Champagne
[quote]We need research to show children in poly households don't get damanged first. [/quote] If we are talking about a Fundamental Right to Marry, then any kind of research is unnecessary because the FR stands on its own as a Constitutional Right to Polygamy. Besides, I'm sure that it's quit...

re: Is polygamy next to get a green light? - Champagne
[quote]Sorry, one cannot use today's SC ruling to challenge the bigamy and polygamy laws. In fact today's opinion strengthens the case FOR state bigamy laws. [/quote] A future Court could easily reverse that on a whim -- just say that prohibition of polygamy violates Equal Protection or a Fundam...
