    Sequester is settled law that goes back effectively to Washington. The president cannot spend money except as authorized and only for the purpose authorized but he is not required to spend the money at all.

    The president has had the power to restrict most types of international migration since the import of slaves was banned.

    That means that those rulings will most likely be overturned when they get to the Supremes in order to maintain the principle of settled law.

    No such thing. All law can be revisited, and altered, or dispensed with altogether. Even Constitutional law, by the mandated process.

    But yes, these rogue legal decisions will be overturned. They have no legal basis, and are no more than personal opinions.

    Democrats love to toss turds in the community punch bowl.

    True but they want to keep Roe v. Wade and many other rulings under the protection of settled law.

    Well, I would say that it doesn't seem like Roe V. Wade is going anywhere at the moment nor is Obergefell v. Hodges.

    Both are here to stay but they might well be limited by other means.

    Gorsuch said he would've walked out of the room if Trump asked him to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    Like Trump, Gorsuch also thinks gay marriage is settled law.

    Only in that it was imposed by judges .......no more settled than Roe....however there is too much to correct to engage in those battles now.

    Are you trying to tell me you think both things are unconstitutional?

    I disagree. Much of the argument to ban same sex marriage was based on religion, something in and of itself would be unconstitutional and that for every argument against gay marriage, there's an argument to refute it.
