    Hadn't seen this on the board,but it was talked about quite a bit on one of our local radio talk shows this afternoon. Apparently this guy is quite the activist, I was listening to clips of him talking about his "views". He is all for reparations and views the constitution as just a suggestion. Obama may be setting him up for a supreme court nomination. What do you think?

    Senate to vote on Ninth Circuit appeals court vacancy


    The Senate is voting today to confirm Goodwin Liu, President Obama’s pick to fill a vacancy on the Ninth Circuit, which includes Nevada, as a federal Appeals Court judge.

    But it may not be the easiest road.

    Liu’s nomination has been stewing on the bench for months, a casualty of Republicans’ and Democrats’ protracted standoff over judicial nominations that has left 110 vacancies on the federal bench.

    The 9th circus court is a joke at best anyways, it has been that way for years. From my understanding its the most overturned circuit appeals court there is.
