One of my biggest fears with the clown we have in the White House has always been the authority to appoint Supreme Court justices which are life time appointments. The SCOTUS is probably the most important part of our government and it is of the utmost importance that it remains completely bipartisan. 9 justices for the purpose of making the most important decisions that effect us all and the odd number for a tie breaker when the court is divided.

God bless Justice Antonin Scallia who died today after a quail hunting outing. He was one of our most cherished justices and a steadfast believer of the Constitution as it was written and his interpretations were top notch in every decision. My condolences to his family and friends but a very sad day for all of us.

The fool on the hill may now have the ability to appoint yet another full blown liberal to the court and this will be the death nail to all that we see as Constitutional. With the passing of Justice Scallia and an appointment of a left leaning lunatic of Obama's choice we could certainly see our freedoms and the written words of the Constitution going straight to hell.

Say a prayer tonight for the justice and his family and keep it in your head and hearts that we will be able to block any appointment by Obama that will have a devastating effect for many years to come. You young guys and gals better take a serious look at just what something of this magnitude could mean for you and your children in the future. You do not have to follow politics to understand just how important this loss could be. Presidents will come and go but the Supreme Court makes the decisions we all have to live by and the wrong lifetime appointment to this branch of our government could destroy the life and liberties we love and honor.

Yup! The fool on the hill just took a few minutes out of his round of golf to go on the TV and let us all know that he plans to make an appointment as soon as he gets back from everlasting vacation.

Don't be fooled. Justice Scallia was a thorn in his side on almost every issue and BHO along with Hillary and Harry Ried are dancing in the streets at his death.

You really are not informed enough to discuss this topic here. Please go do some research then take a long nap then eat something healthy then return for intelligent discussion. I will be patient.

The most lasting powerful influence a president has is the appointment of a supreme Court Justice. I fear the long term consequences of yet another Obama socialist appointee.
On a lighter note:

There are three other Supreme Court Justices that are more than likely need to be replaced with in this next Presidency, Kennedy, Ginsburg and Breyer. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ginsberg announce her retirement so Obama can appoint two justices and cement his "legacy". I believe this is a real possibility. It will need to shake out here in the next couple of days on how this could actually play out. As much as Cruz wants to hold up these nominations, it's the President that has the authority to make them. The Senate either confirms or rejects those nominees. Can they delay this for the next 10 months? I wouldn't think so. The longest confirmation took 109 days. They could reject a few of his nominees but then they would start to look like obstructionists if this goes on too long.

Then the next two Justices will be appointed by the next President. If the Democrats win the White house this will mean four more liberal leaning Justices added to the remaining 2 left leaning justices. The argument that the Constitution has just recently become a "living breathing document" forebods the beginning of the end I fear.

I wonder if our Florida Obama fan remembers and understands Margret Thachers famous quote?
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”
I figure he is going all in for Bernie. Most mindless, feel good sheep are.

I am always surprised how right wing this website is.
Not exactly what I expected from motorcycle riders but it suits me just fine.

McConnell says no nominee will be confirmed till the next president.
We will see if he sticks to it.

I have always thought of motorcycle riders as free spirited, independent and self reliant. None of these character traits are indicative of today's democrat party. Sounds right wing to me.

It does make sense when I think about it. I just didn't really expect it.
Seeing how this discussion is in the Off topic section of this MC forum it is great that we can have such non MC discussions.

Think about it, we even allow some left wing lunatics have their say, drop a dumb bomb or two and then go march in a BLM protest or some other useless function while the FBI is investigating emails and servers from their candidate who might as well have posted the top secret highly classified contents on Face Book or YouTube.

I guess we are a bit Right Leaning down here but I think it is only because we can't seem to find anyone leaning left who can make an honest argument to tip the scales in their direction without going fully negative and getting his/her panties in a wad.

BTW, BHO can propose his pick of whom ever he wants to appoint but he can't use his pen or an executive order to get his appointment confirmed. The democrats changed the rules mid stream on issues of this nature and it did get them their way on some important appointments but it will now come back to haunt them, it was always just 51 out of 100 to pass but they made it 60 out of 100 just to get their way on less important appointments and they don't have the majority any more in either house. OOOOPS!

Liberals not only DON'T ride motorcycles, they want to declare such reckless actions as a 'disease'. Like alcoholism, or type 2 diabetes, morbid obesity, etc. That way they can, through Obamacare, regulate the causes for such a disease. You wait and see.
You know, I was all set to make some clever comment about ADVrider. Then it occurred to me that the worst offenders over there probably are pretenders who don't even own a motorcycle.
