Sanctuary

I’m still reading through the Arizona immigration Supreme Court decision, but I expect that come Thursday, all of the Supreme Court discussion discussion will be about health care. So I’d like to get to the logical conclusion of Scalia’s dissent before that happens. It seems to me that if this is true, then it cuts both ways.

In his point-by-point defense of the Arizona legislation, the avowed law-and-order conservative surmised that the Obama administration “desperately wants to avoid upsetting foreign powers.” He accused federal officials of “willful blindness or deliberate inattention” to the presence of illegal immigrants in Arizona.

“[T]o say, as the Court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the President declines to enforce boggles the mind,” Scalia wrote. “If securing its territory in this fashion is not within the power of Arizona, we should cease referring to it as a sovereign State.”

If a state has the right to, essentially do anything to keep anyone out, doesn’t another state have the right to keep anyone in? Or to make anyone a citizen? It seems to me if states can’t decide who is a citizen of the United States we can’t call them sovereign states. I guess that’s why we don’t.

So it seems to me if Scalia’s positions ever become the majority on the court, Washington should become a sanctuary state. We should let anyone become a citizen as long as they aren’t here to do us harm.

    I suppose WA could be a sanctuary state if ID and OR have the freedom, being sovereign states and all, to set up border crossings to check papers of anyone trying to cross from WA into their states.

    This really where you want to go?

    How about this approach instead: Scalia has shown bias in immigration matters and should be pressured to recuse in future cases. Now THAT’s a liberal argument with some merit.

    You apparently don’t understand the critique of the right-wing using ‘states’ rights’ as a universal justification for doing anything they damn well please, and the intellectual contradiction therein, particularly when using it the same day that a Montana law, that the right just happens to hate, is thrown out in favor of the supremacy of Federal Law.

    Slightly off-topic in this post but it is based on Scalia’s dissent in the SB1070 case and court tradition.

    It’s also written by one of Scalia’s former clerks:

    3. If the Chief Justice were authoring an opinion upholding the individual mandate and if Scalia were dissenting from that holding, Scalia, as the senior justice in dissent, would have the prerogative to assign himself the lead dissent. I don’t see why he would pass over that option. Further, given what seem to be the relative magnitudes of the Obamacare and Arizona immigration cases, I think it highly likely that Scalia would preserve the Obamacare dissent for the one he would read from the bench. Indeed, the fact that his dissent in the Arizona case was a solo dissent (neither Thomas nor Alito joined it) makes it even less likely as a choice. Therefore, from his reading his dissent in the Arizona case, I infer (tentatively, to be sure) that Scalia is not in dissent in the Obamacare cases.

    Perhaps Mr. Justice Scalia should look in the mirror when considering his quoted statement. That is, while pondering his decisions in Citizens United and Montana. More willful and deliberate disregard of the plain facts would be all but impossible to find. His pal Tony Kennedy needs to look in that particular mirror as well.

    Then again, I’m not really certain that Justice Scalia’s reflection would actually appear in a mirror.

    Corporations are not people, no matter what the Supreme Court says. Corporations are made up of people, each having an individual right to free speech and an individual right to vote. To give the corporation the right to its own free speech (in the form of money) gives a theoretical entity a larger voice than the individuals who do or do not own stock in the corporation.

    In addition, the corporation fails to ask each and every stockholder if it has their permission to use the money for a particular political purpose, so how does the corporation know what it is supposed to be saying — unless you are also willing to say that the corporation has free will and the ability to make decisions independent of people.

    Clearly impossible. Cereal — You are an intellectual fraud — a modern day Sophist..

    Re-read the First Amendment:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Know what else isn’t people? The ‘press’. It’s made up of people but it’s corporations. The First Amendment does not limit guarantee of freedom of speech to persons. It guarantees freedom of speech. Period.

    Truth be told, I don’t like effect the Citizens United ruling much, either. That right-wing guy, Sheldon something, who said he might dump $100M into the campaign this year, in my opinion shouldn’t be allowed to do it. Doesn’t mean the ruling was incorrect, just unfortunate because of the consequences.

    But I also don’t think Obama should have been allowed to outspend McCain 3 to 1 in 2008. No law against that happening, though.

    Life doesn’t always seem fair. It’s not the Constitution’s fault. It can always be changed. Of course, in 2016, when all the big money’s backing Hillary, you won’t be so interested in change from the status quo.

    # 4: If Republicans had been in the White House in the mid-1990′s, then control of the internet would have been sold off in a no-bid auction to the whichever large corporation offered the biggest campaign donation or promised the largest monetary rewards to those in charge. Access to the internet would be controlled tightly, with the corporation charging users monthly fees (conveniently charged to a credit card) for accessing the internet, and those hosting sites on the internet would have to pay very large fees and undergo a labourous application process, and be subject to shut out from the Internet at the whims of the corporation.

    Or, at the very least, it could have remained under the control of the military and universities, as it had previously. If you didn’t have a military ID with clearance or be a member of of a selected universitie’s staff, then you didn’t have access.

    So yes, the Internet as we know it was a creation of Al Gore, in that he was a moving force for making it available for public use. The fact that he wasn’t a technical inventer over the three decades previously of items which ultimately helped the internet work ignores that fact. Gore was a much of an inventor of the Internet as Teddy Roosevelt was a builder of the Panama Canal, and Herbert Hoover was a builder of what became later called Hoover Dam.

    re 15: When you make an argument by using the ‘press’ as an example of a corporation with a voice, and therefore, alol corporations have a voice doesn’t hold water.

    The ‘press’ could be an individual, a corporate newspaper (although, a corporate press would be a hard thing for a constitutional originalist to believe was the ‘original intent’ of the founders), an independent newspaper, or some guy on a soapbox. In addition, the ‘press’ is included in the verbiage of the 1st Amendment, corporations are not.

    I have heard each and every one of the conservative justices state that they are constitutional originalists who abide, sa they say, by the original intent of the founders.

    Can you show me any direct statement in the constitution or the Federalist Papers that says that corporations are eople with their own right to free speech.

    rhp6033 spews:

    # 9: That’s pretty speculative.

    No one is assigned the “lead dissent”, there is no such thing. A dissenting justice has to round up supporters to join him in a dissent, if he wants it to have more of an impact. If other justices decline, it’s because they disagree with the language and/or reasoning of the dissent, and prefer to write their own. The Chief Justice only assignes someone to write the majority opinion. Other justices may add their concurring opinions, most often concurring opinions begin by pointing out that they agree with the result, but disagree with the reasoning.

    And if Scalia was involved in the majority opinion, I think that makes it less likely, not more, that he would take the time and effort to write a dissenting opinion in this case, given that there is an infinate amount of time available to each justice, and a limit to the court term.

    Serial Conservative spews:

    Yup, pretty speculative.

    But the main point is that if Scalia were in the dissent on the ACA decision, he likely would have used his opportunity to grandstand his dissent by reading it from the bench, rather than reading the AZ dissent.

    Ergo, Scalia must not be in the minority on the ACA decision.

    Seems sensible speculation to me.

    Not that facts matter to Serial “Ridicule the looks an an African American girl as a joke” Conservative, but Al Gore never said that.

    http://www.snopes.com/quotes/internet.asp

    When asked to describe what distinguished him from his challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey, Gore replied (in part):

    During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.

    Clearly, although Gore’s phrasing might have been a bit clumsy (and perhaps self-serving), he was not claiming that he “invented” the Internet (in the sense of having designed or implemented it), but that he was responsible, in an economic and legislative sense, for fostering the development the technology that we now know as the Internet.
    To claim that Gore was seriously trying to take credit for the “invention” of the Internet is, frankly, just silly political posturing that arose out of a close presidential campaign.

    More on court decisions:

    The impact of language in a decision has been debated of the past couple of days.

    Remember that what is important in a case is the “issue”, and the “holding”. The “holding” may be only a decision to uphold, reverse, or remand to a lower court for further determination, with a very short explanation of the basis for the determination. Anything beyond that is mere “dicta“. Dicta IS useful in giving attorneys, lower courts, and the public insight into how the court might handle future cases, but “dicta” is not stare decisis, and can easily be limited or disregarded entirely.

    With respect to concurring decisions and dissents, the same holds true: it signals the reasoning of that justice, and in some cases can be suffiently persuasive to alter future court’s opinions. If it isn’t sufficiently persuasive, then it’s not followed in the future and becomes a mere footnote in history.

    Not the issue, asshat.
    Serialbob attacked a little 13-year-old girl, in true Republican macho-man fashion. We here in the community organized ourselves to respond to this scurrilous attack, and have hammered ‘bub’ ever since.

    So stop trying to minimize manifest Republican moral failures.

    re 40: The racist angle seems to really get to you. Why don’t you just admit that you were wrong, apologize, and move on.

    That would be the end of it. Teens are sensitive enough without putting that kind of stuff out there.

    For instance, in college, I said (quite often) that the Young Republicans were gay asswipes. But I publicly apologized to them for calling them gay.

    Scalia: No matter how much EJ complains, the man whose obituary will read “Despite his record of inconsistent opinions, Antonin Scalia was not the dumbest person on the bench during his tenure” is not going to do the honorable thing and quit to start a career over at the ReaganWing blog. And Cheney is not good enough to do us the favor of removing this hemorrhoid on a hunting trip.

    No, it is on us. And Bob Johnson over at the great orange satan has what I think is a reasonable approach

    OMAHA STEAKS PERSON (OSP): Omaha Steaks! How can I help you today?

    ME: DO you have steaks that have a really, really high fat content?

    OSP: Why, yes, we have the–

    ME: OKay, send five boxes of those to the Honorable Antonin Scalia, Supreme Court, Washington, D.C.

    OSP: But don’t you want to know what kinds of steaks these are?

    ME: No. What else you got that’s fatty?

    OSP: We have cheesecake and twice baked potatoes that come with extra rich sour cream.

    ME: Great. Send him ten each of those, too.

    OPL: Will that be all?

    ME: That’s it. Make it snappy.
