    1. DETROIT — A federal appeals court Friday struck down Proposal 2, the 2006 Michigan referendum that banned affirmative action in college admissions, employment and contracting, setting up another U.S. Supreme Court showdown on the issue.

    “It’s a tremendous victory,” Detroit attorney George Washington said Friday, shortly after the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 2-1 decision that Proposal 2 was unconstitutional.

    “Affirmative action is back on the agenda,” Washington said.

    Washington, who represents members of a coalition of organizations that fought the 2006 ballot proposal, said he expects the state to ask the entire U.S. 6th Circuit to review the decision and, if that fails, ask the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue.

    2. Tyranny: oppressive power <every form of tyranny over the mind of man &#8212; Thomas Jefferson>; especially: oppressive power exerted by government <the tyranny of a police.
    Tyranny - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    3. We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION - We the People

    4. "U.S. Constitution was a terribly shocking document, especially to rulers all over the world. Because here were a people who were placing themselves in the role of master and placing government in the role of servant. In other words, in one fell swoop, the American people had inverted the historical relationship between citizen and government."
    The Constitution: Liberties of the People and Powers of Government, Part 2


    5. But, time and again, we allow the group known as &#8216;judges&#8217; to decide that the people are not capable of deciding what is right and what is wrong. In this particular case, the elected representatives of the people memorialized the injustice of treating some Americans differently from other Americans.
    This is wrong. A re-evaluation of the role of judges is necessary.
    And it should be based on the following sentiment, penned by a judge, Chief Justice William Rehnquist:

    [The decision in item #1 above is] &#8220;based upon the proposition that federal
    judges, perhaps judges as a whole, have a role of their own,
    quite independent of popular will, to play in solving society&#8217;s
    problems.
    Once we have abandoned the idea that the authority
    of the courts to declare laws unconstitutional is somehow tied
    to the language of the Constitution that the people adopted, a
    judiciary exercising the power of judicial review appears in a
    quite different light.

    a. Judges then are no longer the keepers of
    the covenant;
    instead they are a small group of fortunately
    situated people with a roving commission to second-guess
    Congress, state legislatures, and state and federal administrative
    officers concerning what is best for the country.
    Surely
    there is no justification for a third legislative branch in the federal
    government, and there is even less justification for a federal
    legislative branch&#8217;s reviewing on a policy basis the laws
    enacted by the legislatures of the fifty states.&#8221;

    Judges: get out of the people's business. You apply the Constitution- and no more!

    Detroit attorney George Washington:lol: sorry I found this to good to pass up....


    as to the decision, mark me unsurprised......its just more grist for the mill.

    and -
    Washington, who represents members of a coalition of organizations that fought the 2006 ballot proposal, said he expects the state to ask the entire U.S. 6th Circuit to review the decision and, if that fails, ask the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue.

    Yeah....sure....go fo the low hanging fruit!


    Yes..O'Connor drank the Kool-Aid
    "Having held in a landmark 2003 Supreme Court ruling that diverse college enrollments have proven educational benefits but that colleges should not need race-conscious admissions policies 25 years down the road, a retired associate justice — Sandra Day O'Connor — is now singing what some hear as a different tune….

    Affirmative Action...the soft bigotry of low expectations.

    "There, there, Mr. Minority. We know you're just not good enough to succeed on your own, so let us white liberals help you out."

    By the way where is the supreme courts jurisdiction on this case? Is it because colleges recieve federal money? If it is then Michigan should just issue the feds a refund and then the fake juridiction the SC has will disapear.

    I have never personally oppressed anyone. I'm pretty sure my ancestors never did, either.

    Nevertheless, I am not responsible for anything my ancestors may have done. Those who believe in identity politics and the collective over the individual cannot comprehend that.

    It's bogus. The judiciary is a runaway locomotive...accent on the 'loco.'

    Did you see the Rehnquist quote, #5 in the OP? This guy knew what he was talking about.


    BTW...WV? Thank you for Nick Swisher!
