    I think we will be bitterly disappointed if we are expecting the Supreme Court to do the right thing.

    They are mostly a bunch of corrupt right wingers who are part of the Republican Party machine. They are controlled by the Republican Party. They have made so many lousy decisions.

    It’s time to scrap the failing, corrupt & biased Supreme Court. The whole idea is flawed. It hasn’t worked for decades and it’s continuing to be an embarrassment.

    @Icebloo: Your comments are totally inaccurate. Since the 1950, the SCOTUS has generally handed down rulings that have increased the rights of individuals in our society. The present court is made up of five moderate to liberal Justices. The Courts of the U S are not an embarassment. They are instead usually the safeguarders of our freedoms. You should study a little U S history before you, as usual, make such silly and false pronouncements.

    SCOTUS pokus…just watch that dreamy little Matt Baume and swoon with me over whatever in the world he’s talking about. Hey Matt it’s me, I’m over here! Kiss.

    Gee, a little civics background might be useful. Andrew’s right. The Court has performed its role quite admirably, especially with regard to civil rights. In fact, many rulings have paved the path which puts the issue of marriage equality at this decisive stage. And, the results of Nov. 6 with marriage equality legislation will play a factor, as will the shifts in public opinion, which the Justices do take into account. I’m cautiously optimistic. The legal merits have been demonstrated quite exhaustively.

    @Andrew and @Les, neither of you know what you are talking about. All justices on the Supreme Court are between conservative and moderate. There are no true liberals. More importantly, you are forgetting shameful decisions such as appointing Bush president, or Citizens United, or simply dumb statements from sitting US Justices. It’s widely recognized that the Supreme Court is a joke, and one of the most popular beliefs for why Roberts agreed to uphold healthcare is simply so that he could somewhat try to uphold some respect for the Court and sense that it is not political and reactionary.

    How about a legitimate, informed civics lesson for those arguing that SCOTUS has helped to advance or limit our freedoms? The truth is the latter, even as they have attempted the former. Allow me to recommend “Courting Disaster” by the esteemed Gerald Rosenberg from U Chicago.
