    Obama's Court Pick Keeps Gun Stocks Soaring
    from MSN Money
    President Obama's nomination of federal appeals court Judge Sonia Sotomayor to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter heralds yet another victory for gun-makers. While most investors have been rightly focused on the crisis in the markets and economy lately, some Americans have been focusing on other political issues, namely the Second Amendment. More



    Bad on Guns
    from Human Events
    President Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, 2nd Circuit Judge Sonia Sotomayor, owes the American people an explanation on her view of the Second Amendment. Sotomayor shouldn’t be allowed to skirt the Second Amendment issue, because she cosigned a decision in a case earlier this year that exhibited a dismissive and hostile view of the right to bear arms.

    from Buckmasters
    Nearly half of the sites in the Texas State Parks system will conduct public hunts during the 2009-2010 hunting season. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission approved scheduled hunts on 44 state park units at its May 28 public hearing. Most of the state parks approved for public hunting will be offered through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s computer drawings for a variety of game and hunting options, including new youth opportunities. Selected hunting opportunities on state parks comprise 1,676 hunt positions, including 253 for youth, out of nearly 5,000 total positions available in this year’s special drawings for hunts on public lands in Texas.

    from American Rifleman
    When the editors of American Rifleman met to sift through the past year's coverage of firearms, optics and accessories, they were once again faced with the difficult task of selecting the industry's best products for the purpose of awarding them the NRA Publications Division's highest honor: the Golden Bullseye.

    Other considerations about this candidate.

    - and we have a pattern. She a racist and a sexist - both traits are unacceptable for any judge on any court never mind the Supreme Court

    Gateway Pundit: Figures. Sotomayor Made Same Racist Comment in 1994, Too

    Figures. Sotomayor Made Same Racist Comment in 1994, Too
    Bummer.
    Here we thought Obama had appointed some level-headed sane candidate and instead we have a nominee who more resembles his former mentor.
    What a shocker.

    Greg Sargent reported:


    A copy of the 1994 speech was included with the questionnaire she submitted for the 1998 confirmation. A Sotomayor supporter sent both to me.

    Here’s what she said in the 1994 speech:


    Justice O’Connor has often been cited as saying that “a wise old man and a wise old woman reach the same conclusion in dueling cases. I am not so sure Justice O’Connor is the author of that line since Professor Resnik attributes the line to Supreme Court Justice Coyle. I am not so sure that I agree with the statement. First, if Prof. Martha Minnow is correct, there can never be a universal definition of ‘wise.’ Second, I would hope that a wise woman with the richness of her experience would, more often than not, reach a better conclusion.”
    That’s virtually identical to the comments from 2001 that have generated days and days of controversy.
    Great pick, Barack.





    We live in a society -
    "of the Government, by the Government, for the Government".
    We are now slaves to A GREEDY government.
