Holiday Weekend

Some last thoughts before shutting down for the holiday weekend. Unless you've been hiding on a cave in Mars with your fingers in your ears you know that Supreme Court Justice Sandra O'Conner has retired. Justice Emilio Garza is the name I keep hearing batted around as a replacement.

Nancy Pelosi has made a statement designed to give chills to small government types and those who prefer orgininalist justices. Money quote:
It is a decision of the Supreme Court. If Congress wants to change it, it will require legislation of a level of a constitutional amendment. So this is almost as if God has spoken. It's an elementary discussion now. They have made the decision.

Yeow! Someone give her a reality check. Full contact. I think someone needs to sit down with every senator and justice and make them do the 7th grade unit on the US Constitution and citizenship I did when I was in school. Then maybe they will figure out that service to the nation is a high calling but it is service none the less. Plus they can reaquaint themselves with the actual text of the Constitution.

Happy Independance Day! Thanks to the soldiers who keep our nation free. Remember, the greatest thing George Washington did was quit his job.
