If it doesn't make a difference, then why change the wording at all?

Another common misconception is that conservatives are for individuals rights. Except when a conservative reaches a certain wealth level, then the rules don't matter at all.

Research has shown that conservatives are right wing authoritarians. One of the characteristics of such people is that they support policies that are understood to be in the ruler's best interest.

Everybody thinks that Osama Bin Laden's greatest destructive achievement was the 911 bombing. But as the years wear on it's seems more and more like the loss of American liberty to a right-wing power grab was the more insidious consequence.

Reading this article was enough to make me die a little inside.

I still have hope for this country, but every passing day it seems that another peice of the good in this nation is destroyed and replaced by something painful.

Why aren't more people outraged?

I am seriously surprised we haven't seen a string of assassination attempts on American officials by American citizens.

If the police arrested you, you must have done something. Right?
10:44 AM on 08/02/2010
Not necessarily, the cops get the wrong guy plenty of times.

I was being ironical. The story yesterday was about the innocent guy who spent 27 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit. Oy.
10:56 AM on 08/02/2010
And if they shoot you, you must have been deserving of capital punishment too. Right?

Next it will be guilty until proven innocent ! But we cant have activist judges- Roberts is the worst example of activism, we need equally activist judges thoughout society to make things even and just. If only Obama had the guts to do it, spine transplant ?

The purpose of AA was to remedy the vestiges of state sponsored discrimination and some instances of private discrimination. The Court admitted years ago (2003) that AA had a shelf life of only about 25 more years (about 18 years now) and that fewer programs could satisfy constitutional scrutiny.

This should be a positive development. Why should we continue giving women the benefits of AA when they are oftentimes 55-60% of the college population? If anything, we need to either eliminate it or provide males with the benefits of AA. It makes little sense to keep telling young white males that they will be treated differently because of their race and sex, but that the program that ensures disparate treatment is in no way racist. It's time to call a spade a spade.

this should inflame libertarians and people who don't like big government, but it probably won't... since dick cheney opened gitmo, and bush appointed activist neo-cons to the court, this country will see decades of more government and corporation control over bodies.... and our money... elections have consequences, and not just until the next election.

It *should*. And you're right, it won't. They dislike "big government", but don't often spell out what they think "big government" truly is.

I think they are very clear about what they mean by big government. They believe the role of government is to raise armies and protect corporations from the will of the people. Government can grow infinitely to handle that role. Any time government must grow to help the average citizen that constitutes Socialism and a slippery slope to the dreaded "big government".

This is the most powerful wing of the Republican party....whatever the GOP wants, the Supreme Court has been able to make happen. This is the true legacy of George W, he turned a moderate court into an activist court set to do the bidding of the Republican party....

We are going to loose our Miranda Rights in the next 4 years because there isn't a single politician standing up for them.

You have the right to remain silent, but only if you tell the police that you're remaining silent.

So in other words if you say absolutely nothing, and FAIL to INFORM police that you're remaining mute, you have to talk?

Someone please. Help me. Or help this headline writer. Or Scotus. I'm not sure which.

The Miranda warning will have to be changed because the first thing it says is that you have the right to remain silent. Which isn't true.

But it IS true, unless police NOW have the right to beat you until you talk.

The entire criminal justice system in this country would grind to a halt in less than a week if every single suspect simply REFUSED TO SPEAK ONE SINGLE WORD to police.
