    Dred Scott was Precedent... What say you Whiney Liberals?

    "The Supreme Court decision overturned a 20-year precedent..." from an e-mail from BarackObama.com, and in that, from the President.

    So, if "Precedent" is Absolute, then I guess Dred Scott was Correct?

    Too many on the Left are Irrational and Hysterical right now. It's called Losing... Learn to Deal with it... These instances won't be the Last.

    :)

    peace...

    As I understand it, Dread Scott v. Sanford (1973) was overturned by the 13th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution, not as you imply, by a SC decision.
    Comment?

    Dred Scott was about property rights and standing. First slaves were not citizens (like Taylor in Planet of the Aps) and couldn't seek judication by the courts. Black people were seen as Chattel (property) and the decision came down that the state couldn't deprive a person of their property rights without due process of the 5th amendment. Depriving a chattel requires due process, that is still good law. However, a person being Chattel, well obvious the 13th amendment did away with that (unless as punish a crime)!

    lol, I have no idea how or why I typed 1973. I stand corrected, the date was 1857. As for spelling, bfd. I dread those who feel the need to point out oversights or silly mistakes in typing.
    Now, maybe you would be so kind as to correct the substantive part of my post, and, provide the USSC decision which superceded the 13th and 14th Amendments and over turned the precident set by Dred Scott v. Sanford.

    Hmmmm...in 1973 I was in transition from Leah to Margie, and now you've really got me thinking - oh to be 25 and single again.
