I don't care about her rags to riches story. I don't care that her mom worked two jobs.. All of that is respectable in many ways, but when it comes to seating Sonia on the big bench,, no way Jose'. Her vote to side with the City of New Haven (one of America's most corrupt melting pots) on the promoting of members of the fire department, says it all.. No person should be given a job soley based on race. No person, because of their race, should be promoted over those who have worked to achieve advancement in an honest way. Clearly Sotomayor supports reverse discrimination, even when the public's well being is at risk. Why is there mediocrity in the delivery of public services?? Too many judges like Sotomayor are allowed to make decisions that effect us all. She should not be confirmed because this decision alone.
