    No Justice Breyer. You are supposed to promote the Constitution and the law. Not ignore it when you feel its covenient. If the law says the minority wins, the minority wins; if the law says the minority loses, the minority loses. You dont have the right to ignore the Constitution because you dont like the results.

    Moral relativists and Clinton SCOTUS nominees, hand and glove.

    ???

    He has trouble applying the phrase "freedom to speech" to the Internet? Then, he'd better look at the real-world context - there is an Internet and there is the constitutional phrase "freedom of speech" - but NOT focus on framers' intent because society is constantly evolving?

    "Evolving" coming from an activist judge always spells "T-R-O-U-B-L-E", and to think he's Clinton better choice.

    Too bad he wasn't a Bush appointee, then we'd have our liberal Constitutional defenders screaming about it too.

    This is another example why we need an impeachment mechanism for justices who, like Breyer, exhibit a total lack of understanding of the basic tenets of their job.

    And how ironic that he is afraid of people "becoming too powerful", when I would be hard-pressed to think of a better example of someone who is becoming just that.

    Wait, so relying on federal politicians to appoint federal (lifetime) employees to jobs where they are supposed to check the power of the politicians doesn't work very well? You mean to tell me that one branch of the feds won't protect against excessive power-grabbing by another branch of the feds?

    Why, that's preposterous!

    I saw a lot of this interview. He's a pompous ass, IMO.

    Breyer is a Jew.

    Understanding this is a very, very important part of understanding why he thinks and speaks as he does. If he's so concerned about any one particular group getting too powerful, he should check out his own people.
