    Scalia's death is another wound for America given Obama's subversiveness.

    The previous two 'justices' that Obama appointed weren't just liberal hacks, they were flat-out below average intelligence persons. It was his way of spitting on The Constitution. Will he get to appoint a third dullard, or can this be stalled?

    The Republicans will try to stall it for a year.

    I don't think you understand the meaning of the word, "subversiveness". You may not agree with the president's nomination, but the president has the constitutional authority to nominate a person to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court.

    The Senate has the power to consent or not consent to the appointment of the president's nominee. If some senators disapprove of the nominee, then they should cast their votes to withhold consent. They will be answerable for their votes to their constituents. That's the way our system works.

    If the Senate stalls a vote, then members of the Senate will be viewed as obstructionists ... power hungry wolves. There is no political advantage to be gained by stalling.

    Andrew Jackson nominated several justices. Know what we get when Democrats nominate justices?

    Dred Scott.

    I know you don't understand context. Spare me the lecture, lady.

    Well the two dullards in conjunction with Roberts selling out (probably under threats to his person and family) brought us the next Dred Scott: Obamacare.

    Your inane response is noted. You haven't accounted for the evolution and shift of people, mindset, and political parties that has taken place since 1857.

    Do away with lifetime appointments. Court's already crippled with those two dullards he appointed otherwise.

    No longer citizens, we're subjects.

    The natural law no longer determines our destiny, and our jurisprudence no longer, as Jefferson said, carries us "back to the time when the Constitution was adopted."
