    Last night I heard on the radio that Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas attended the private strategy meeting hosted by the Kock brothers in Palm Springs. The NYT's reported:

    "Koch Industries, the longtime underwriter of libertarian causes from the Cato Institute in Washington to the ballot initiative that would suspend California’s landmark law capping greenhouse gases, is planning a confidential meeting at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa to, as an invitation says, “develop strategies to counter the most severe threats facing our free society and outline a vision of how we can foster a renewal of American free enterprise and prosperity.”

    Two questions:
    Is the participation of two members of the USSC at a solely political secret meeting appropriate?
    Plutocracy anyone?

    Did they wear their robes and bring gavels?

    Newsflash:

    It isn't "solely political."

    That's one of the things that makes it "secret."

    The Supreme Court overstepping It's Constitutional Authority by Abusing Judicial Review, contributes to Oligarchy/Plutocracy.

    The Justices attending a Meeting by it self does not. ;)

    This must be some of that judicial activism the right was talking about.

    You mean like appointing and confirming a Supreme Court Justice that openly admits Latino Women are smarter then men? That belongs to an openly anti American racist group? You mean like that?

    The Supreme Court overstepping It's Constitutional Authority by Abusing Judicial Review, contributes to Oligarchy/Plutocracy is an Interesting point. Did the Justices cross the line in Citizens United v. FEC? The nexus between the Kock Brothers wealth and unlimited ability to influence elections should give pause to every thinking American.

    That was not what I was referring to.
    Do you mean to say that Latino women are not smarter than men?

    btw that is not racist, but sexist it would seem to me.

    She is a member of La Raza, which IS Anti American and racist. She is sexist based on her statements about being smarter then men and again racist by proclaiming she as a Latino is smarter then white men.

    please link to substantiate this, as this is the second time you have made that claim......

    in fact last thread you said declaratively- they met in private WITH the Kock [sic] bros...are you backing off of that now?


    Its a session...how many makes a 'session'? Oh and remember to make this claim the Koch bro.s actually have to be in the room.

    Can you in fact even prove they were in attendance, because I have seen sources that aren't even sure if they were there, they just know they were invited...


    and gee how secret is this btw? what constitutes secret? Please explain your reasoning as to what secret is and what it means to you in this context.


    facts anyone?
