Elena Kagan: the First Amendment Limiter

Well, well, well. Now we see where Obama really stands on the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. All you have to do is look at this latest pick for Supreme Court Justice to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens; Elena Kagan. Here's a real winner if you're a dyed-in-the wool Marxist-Progressive America bashing left winger. A real loser if you believe in individual rights and freedom and liberty, or Gaia forbid, you actually believe in the Constitution! (Gaia is the earth goddess that liberals/progressives worship rather than the Almighty that normal people worship.) Some of her work on free speech issues suggests that, had she been nominated in 1776, she would restrict or actually outlaw Thomas Paine's Common Sense, as well as The Federalist Papers if James Madison and Alexander Hamilton refused to reveal who paid to publish their essays. What is with Obama and all these minions he surrounds himself with? Why do they hate this country so much? Another instance that should give any senate judiciary committee member pause are her efforts to restrict corporate campaign contributions, which by the way, are a form of speech. Her work on the First Amendment has repeatedly promoted the idea that rights come from government and not God. She elaborated on the subject of free speech in brief pertaining to the United States vs Stevens case in which she stated, "Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs." Uhhh excuse me? Balance? Who the hell decides  the balance? Obama? Pelosi? Kagan herself? Rahm Emanuel? Some other dictatorial federal bureaucrat? This is yet another example of Obama's hatred of America, and the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. I've heard it said Obama will not see a second term, and he probably won't. The question is, can the nation survive even a first term with Supreme Court picks like this?

Showing Their "Colors"

It seems a school can now pick which days of the week their students may wear or otherwise display the American flag. A student by the name of Daniel Galli and four of his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, California minding their own business when a vice principal ordered two of the boys to remove their American flag bandanas and the others to turn their American flag t-shirts inside out. When the boys refused, they were ordered to go to the principal's office. Says Daniel Galli, "They said we could wear it any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday." The holiday in question is Cinco de Mayo. The administrators called the boys' shirts "incendiary" and said they could lead to fights on campus. My opinion is this: bring it on. This is the United States of America, not Mexico. Can you imagine if Americans living in Mexico picked fights with Mexican citizens for displaying their national(Mexican) colors in their own country??!!?? This politically correct sensitivity crap has got to stop. Many Mexican-American students said they were offended by the boys' American colors being worn on "their" holiday. One student, Annicia Nunez said, "I think they should apologize because it's a Mexican Heritage day, we don't deserve to be disrespected like that." We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July." Well Annicia, I hate to tell you this, but you're not in Mexico anymore! You are in America, and I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you're here legally, so that means you are an American citizen! Not a Mexican citizen. A mother of one of the boys said, "I think it's absolutely ridiculous, all they were doing is displaying their patriotic nature and expressing their individuality." As for an apology, sorry Annicia, I doubt you'll get one. The boys and their parents have said, "Fat chance." Galli has stated, "I'm not going to apologize, I did nothing wrong. I went about my normal day." I might have worn an American flag, but I'm an American and I'm proud to be an American." Bravo to you Daniel Galli! Perhaps there is hope for this country yet if we keep raising kids like this young man. The five boys and their parents later met with a Morgan Hill Unified School District official on Wednesday night. The District and the school were not in agreement regarding the incident and released this statement: "The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration's interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions."
Wow, that kind of statement coming from the District Administration of a San Francisco Bay area school. Amazing. This incident just goes to show you where political correctness and Progressivism and globalism leads you.

If you've wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn`t buy one.

If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.

If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants meat products banned.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he tries to better his situation.

A liberal wants to know who is going to fix it for him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.

Liberals want those they don't like to be silenced.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.

If a liberal is a non-believer he wants any mention of religion silenced.

If a conservative needs health care he shops for it, or looks for a job that will provide it.

A liberal demands that the rest of us provide for it.

A conservative will read this and will forward it, so his friends can have a good laugh.

A liberal will read this and delete it, because he's offended.

Well, I forwarded it to you people, so you know where I sit!

From someone who works at The Kennedy Space Center (sent to me in email)

Hi Friends:

Thought you all might like to know what the "visit" from the President to the workers at the Kennedy Space Center was really like. The day before the meeting, a 747 landed and unloaded 6 limousines and a small army of his security staff. They drove 3 miles to the building where he would be, checked it out, then turned around and drove back and got into the 747 and left. (Your tax dollars at work).
The meeting was held at one of the smallest buildings on KSC. All the staff in this building were told to stay home and not come to work. Then only 40 guests were invited to hear him speak. ALL DIGNITARIES AND VIPS AND NOT ONE, I REPEAT NOT ONE, WORKER FROM ALL THOSE THAT WORK HANDS ON AND ACTUALLY WITH THE SHUTTLE WERE INVITED.
It was so staged and phony, it just makes my blood boil. Then that man said he wants to land on an asteroid!!!! Idiot. Here he is giving the Space Station to the Russians who want to charge us 100 million dollars per seat to fly one of our astronauts to the Space Station.
Just another case of the stacked deck. Rumor now has it that the last mission also may be canceled.
