Alito And Big Changes For America

I've been listening to the Alito hearings and reading the transcripts, but not watching it on T.V. (I do have to work.) Maybe that's why I haven't gotten the same picture that the media is presenting. At least on the radio, Alito often sounds bumbling when compared to John Roberts. Even on "questions" from the GOP. I suppose not all candidates can be like Roberts, so I'll let him slide on his lack of eloquence. After all, I'd most likely be doing much worse.

But I think the New York Times editorial board gets it right:
Some commentators are complaining that Judge Samuel Alito Jr.'s confirmation hearings have not been exciting, but they must not have been paying attention. We learned that Judge Alito had once declared that Judge Robert Bork - whose Supreme Court nomination was defeated because of his legal extremism - "was one of the most outstanding nominees" of the 20th century.
The rest of the editorial goes on to enumerate some troubling aspects about Alito. It's hard to pick one thing I'm most concerned about, but his lack of credibility--in regards to CAP specifically--is particularly troubling. As someone mentioned: he can remember all of his dissents, but can't remember why he included the CAP on his 1985 application (when he was already in his 30s mind you).

I'm waiting to see how things turn out. There was some :promising news recently reported:
Meanwhile, a GOP political group with which several moderate senators are affiliated announced its formal opposition to Alito's nomination.

The Republican Majority for Choice said the judge was "out of step with mainstream Americans on the issue of abortion and maintaining the legal right to choose."

Among those listed on the group's "advisory committee" are GOP senators Specter, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Lincoln Chafee. All support abortion rights, but the lawmakers have not indicated how they would vote on Alito's nomination.
I'll reiterate my concern for issues other than Roe. A lot is at stake with Alito. I hope our country doesn't start going backwards.

Perhaps some in the GOP don't care about how things were before "one person/one vote" because they can't remember or recall what it was like.

Dianne Feinstein talks the talk but her ultimate actions may prove her to be a spineless traitor to core Democratic values and to mainstream America. Fearful of a radical right-wing extremist "backlash" (wake-up Diane...we're already LIVING in the right-wing backlash!) she has implied that she will not support a filibuster of Judge Alito despite her belief and statement: "If you asked me who would Alito most be like, it would probably be, I'd have to say, Scalia." SCALIA?!? ANOTHER SCALIA IS THE WORST-CASE SCENARIO! AND YOU'RE RAISING THE WHITE FLAG??? It would mean GAME OVER for mainstream America but Dianne is ready to not only give up this fight, BUT PUBLICLY BROADCAST THIS WEAKNESS SO THAT OTHER DEMOCRATIC SENATORS MAY FOLLOW SUIT?!? THIS IS NOT ABOUT QUALIFICATIONS! THIS IS ABOUT THE FUTURE NATURE OF OUR VERY COUNTRY! THIS IS ABOUT THE SUSTAINABILITY OF AMERICA AS AMERICA! She's going to fear a radical backlash and allow the completion of the theocratic/corporate usurpation of all levels of government power by the radical right-wing extremists??? Would Republicans ever tolerate this situation if the shoes were on the other feet? YOU CAN BET NOT, AND NOT EVER! IF NOT DIANNE, WHO IS GOING TO FIGHT FOR MAINSTREAM AMERICA?!!!?!?!? SHAME ON DIANNE FEINSTEIN and all other so-called "Democrat" senators who have buckled under the pressure and are going to abandon their values! SHAME on them for falling right into the carefully orchestrated Republican trap of making them fear some ridiculous "backlash" from the fundamentalist loud-mouths who will readily trash the constitution for a Bible-based Taliban-style society when they get their way. SHAME on them for even considering for one moment that they would NOT FIGHT ANOTHER SCALIA on this ever-so-carefully-balance Supreme Court. America in 10 years with another Scalia on the court will be a very very very different America. It will be a frightening America. DIANNE: SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME!! CONTACT DIANNE'S OFFICE VIA EMAIL AT http://feinstein.senate.gov/email.html. Contact your other weak-kneed so-called Democrat senators and DEMAND that they filibuster this wretched right-wing Republican robot who has proven himself ready and anxious to trash individual liberties and rights and lavish yet more windfalls on corporations, Republican controlled local and state governments and the radical religious right extremists. TELL DIANNE AND THE OTHER SENATORS: This IS the EXACT SCENARIO with which to use a filibuster...To STOP ANOTHER SCALIA...because "another Scalia" on the court is GAME OVER for America. If you value America, don't just sit there and read this. DO SOMETHING! TAKE ACTION! EVERY INDIVIDUAL CAN HELP! Write Dianne. Call her office. Call your other Democratic senators and DEMAND A FILIBUSTER!

Whoa, paragraphs would be nice. And CAPS are rude. But your correct about CALLING Feinstein and Boxer's offices if you want them to act. If you remember, Boxer was the lone, brave Senator to challenge Bush's electoral votes last January.

Hi matey

I'm sure it was this blog I was reading a while back where someone was looking for an SEO tool for driving more traffic and get more hits for their website.

Anyway, I was speaking to a techi guy at work who gets to know all the latest stuff and he uses the free Link Referral Program.

His website on web site promotion service amongst other stuff has seen traffic explode since he started using the Link Referral Program - consequently his affiliate sales commissions and business sales went through the roof PLUS his website increased in google ranking which was an added bonus!!

If anyone else has any good ideas for driving more traffic to blogs/websites then please share with your online business blog buddies. Ta ;-)

I am currently doing two Multi-Level-Marketing programs I would Like To recommend. The first is www.hennenvitamins.com . I started on this MLM because I was excited about the product. They carry whole food multi vitamin and do a good job of explaining why the synthetic multi vitamin you are taking might actually have negative affects to your body. They also carry 4 Food supplements which you can check out at the site. The product I became hooked on was healthy weight loss supplement. I started at 300#'. and have seen easily duplicated weight loss in the Month I have been on it. I last weighed in at 283#'s. A 17# weight loss. With so many Americans trying to lose weight this is an easy sell.

The second MLM I got into was due to my family, My oldest son John started using ACAI Juice which contains Magnates (spelling)and other ingredients high in ANTI-OXIDANTS , he was so excited about the product he told his younger brother, who told my wife, now were all using it. Anti-oxidants are important6 because the fight free radicals in your blood. Free radicals are what make us age, they also attack your brain and have some impact on cancers and tumors. (My 6 year old has 30% survival chance from Neuro Blastoma, so you can see why this is important to us. This company is poised on the edge of a great expansion, which I like because the timing is right. I love the structure of this MLM, it is a 3x4 Forced Matrix, Which means even if someone in your group does not work, there is spill over and he will want to stay in because he is making money. This is the website for the juice; http://www.acaiplus.com/hennen12048
God Bless,
Reverend John L. Hennen
