SCOTUS gets one right for once.

Too bad they flubbed the Aereo ruling.

major TV network owners win on this one, as well as Pay providers.

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

When you think about it, Aereo is the one case where both Buckeye AND NBC/Sinclair won... cause F you, consumers.

Apparently the President doesn't get to decide when Congress is in recess.

Yeah, they can just keep on having some guy walk in every 3 days, turn on the lights, gavel the Senate open, gavel it closed, turn off the lights, and walk out.

Too bad we won't have a Republican president for some time, I'd like to hear the screaming about it when it gets done to them.

Yeah because the alternative of appointing someone who might be bipartisan is so tough.

In the current political environment poisoned by extremely ignorant partisans like yourself, DTOM, and FG, Obama could nominate JESUS CHRIST for any position and Jesus could prove his credentials by walking ON TOP OF the Reflecting Pool then turning the entire thing into wine, and you'd all be on here pounding away at your keyboards demanding to see Jesus's birth certificate and how Obama's undermining the Almighty Free Market and Capitalism by even daring to nominate a SOCIALIST that hands out WELFARE in the form of FREE FOOD AND FREE HEALTH CARE to government office.

Don't give me this "appointing someone who might be bipartisan" bullshit.

Nothing of substance just more AC whining. Well AC you can complain all you want but his attempts to end around the constitution was just stopped 9-0. His two SCOTUS appointees both ruled against him.

So the SCOTUS rules 9-0, against the SCROTUM? Folks, you just gotta love it!

What the lawmakers and justices do are indeed logical, there are good valid causes for this. The limit of the cell phone searches is good idea.
