No More Right Wing Judges


I'm sick of Republicans talking about the need to appoint strict constructionists to the bench. The far right makes no bones about saying they want more of judges like Altio and Roberts, all up and down the federal bench. Finally, someone is fighting these knuckleheads.

The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights is a group of 200 organizations - folks like the NAACP, NEA, League of Women Voters, AFL-CIO, National Council of La Raza, AARP, National Council of Churches - that has been around since 1950 to fight for civil rights. "LCCR is the unifying force for national organizations representing people of color, women, children, older Americans, gays, workers and religious groups. We are leading one of the most important fights in our history the fight to stop the right-wing takeover of the courts."

Here's an example of the positions that LCCR takes:

The Senate recently held a hearing on the controversial nomination of Attorney Richard Honaker to a lifetime position on the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming. Honaker is one of many controversial nominees who threaten to weaken established constitutional rights and civil rights protections for ordinary Americans. Given the damage already done to the courts because of the President's partisan engineering, the Senate must refuse to confirm any more controversial nominees. Call your senators today at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to stop confirming controversial nominees, including Richard Honaker!


The #1 priority of Alberto Gonzales when he ran the Department of Justice was to pack every level of the federal bench with Alitos and Roberts. They pack them when they are young, so they can be there forever. They get those on the very far right to serve as lifetime federal judges because the religious right knows that every civil liberty this country has ever got (after the Bill of Rights) has come through the federal courts - Right to vote without Jim Crow laws, interracial marriage, choice, etc. The LCCR gets it "because the Supreme Court takes such a small percentage of cases, lower federal judges often represent the only shot at justice individuals get."

The right wing gets it, does the left?

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the gw gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the GuildWars Gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Guild Wars Gold with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily.I know every player wants to get more and more GuildWars money to become strong. So you can get the cheap gw gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.

These 2 spells will make you pretty much rohan crone invincible with nearly no need for potting. For your PVP you are gonna need to rely on your ability to maximize your Rapid Lock spell and be able to use your rohan gold to Health to mana spell efficiently. They problem for a typical Dekan Sage build is to not supply the rohan online crone needed to sustain these spells. Mana guard is where this build is going to shine and make you pretty much rohan money invincible for 60 seconds which is more than enough time to dispatch most classes in PVP. Rohan is cool so far, much easier than most free games without any rohan online gold that starts spazzes on you.

Heath said that NC Soft could counterbalance loosed by improving on established gw gold services for games. With the online games business of using necessary GuildWars Gold, it is all about growing your subscriber base. It will also enable extra Guild Wars Gold and features such as voice mail. We will be able to offer our players a commanding set of communication tools and also some GuildWars money. I have a feeling all I will be doing is sitting and pvping with cheap gw gold.
