"May I be removed from my duties as Sup. Judge please, cause I am still pouting?"

I can't imagine that I would feel any different from Thomas, but he has a job to continued doing. No?

No. He should resign in disgrace for lying on his tax return and having a conflict of interest.

There is another explanation for Justice Thomas' silence. Maybe he doesn't write his own arguments. Maybe he leaves that up to his clerks. He doesn't need the money. His wife takes in laundry (money) to make ends meet. So why work at all? He probably just sits there on the bench day dreaming about the next Koch Brothers golf outing.

So how did that one-term thingy work for you?

I wouldn't be surprised to find his arguments came from the Heritage Foundation through his wife.

The clerks are not sitting on the bench: he is. They may help write his arguments,but HE is the only one who can speak from the bench, not them.

He doesn't speak from the bench.

"...due to his uncompromisingly originalist philosophy..." This man is a criminal and yet this "AOL reporter" aspiring for a Fox morning show focuses on a few words in a career of selling out.

Originalist ? Corporations have some of the rights of citizens ? Really ? "Iforgot how to fill out a form" is no way to live your life Mr. Justice . You might be right .
07:57 PM on 10/07/2011
So he should only get 3/5 of a vote, since he's so originalist?

Here is the "acid test" for this Judge..
April 15, forget or neglect to show on your return that you have other income sources..you get convicted and seek help from the Supreme Court to appeal your verdict and conviction....along with your attorney you inform the court that you simply forgot or did not understand the question on the form....
How do you think Thomas would rule????????

He didn't forget to disclose it on his taxes. He forgot to disclose it to the courts. His wife paid taxes on all that money. They didn't cheat the Fed out of any revenues. He just didn't disclose his wife's earning to the court. It is a difference there.

Grrrrr conservatives...
You totally missed the "F"ing point!! The issue is..he did something that if most of us did, would mandate some kind of punishment..to say that he "forgot" something as important as this is just stupid..he knew and he avoided..I have been in the insurance business for 30 years..if I forgot to do my continuing educations requirements or renew my license and continued to sell insurance, I would lose my license and face some serious problems with the insurance commissioner,,,,Thomas says he forgot or didn't know and he gets a "walk"..????and continues to administer judgements that effect the lives of every American..yikes!!
Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!

BTW...not disclosing income is cheating and if it wasn't all that important , why do they ask the question and how many other judges have "forgot"..

"...cannot intellectually compete with his colleagues..." - In the absence of all other possibilities this makes the most sense. That and Ginny is holding the purse strings.

I would have to guess that is partly correct but think he has already made up his mind and therefor not reason for him to ask questions.

He doesn't speak because his Wife has already relayed how his Corporate benefactors want him to vote.
