Sure, that's understandable. Also, on the Republican side, there have been a lot of repeated names over the last 62 years. In fact, since 1952, the Republicans haven't won a single election for President without Richard Nixon or a George Bush on the ticket. They also ran only one ticket between 1952 and 2004 without a Nixon, Bush or Dole on the ticket:

1952: Eisenhower / Nixon - won
1956: Eisenhower / Nixon - won
1960: Nixon / Lodge - lost
1964: Goldwater / Miller - lost
1968: Nixon / Agnew - won
1972: Nixon / Agnew - won
1976: Ford / Dole - lost
1980: Reagan / Bush - won
1984: Reagan / Bush - won
1988: Bush / Quayle - won
1992: Bush / Quayle - lost
1996: Dole / Kemp - lost
2000: Bush / Cheney - sorta won
2004: Bush / Cheney - won

Wow.  I'd never noticed what a dynasty the Bush family. Thanks for posting.

Yeah this ruling amazes me. Not that it went the way it did, but that it was 9-0. Surely Thomas could have found a way to shred the 4th amendment on this one too. he must have been too tired to try.

Supremes strike down abortion buffer zone.

Not sure I get this.

Roberts opinion on this reads like an 8th grade civics essay "Petitioners wish to converse with their fellow citizens about an important subject on the public streets and sidewalks -- sites that have hosted discussions about the issues of the day throughout history,"

I'm about as anti-abortion as one can be, but 35 feet doesn't seem unreasonable or a violation the people's right to gather...?

We need a higher appeals court. Maybe the President can just overturn them with an executive order.

Seriously, Hep, the only thing I'm angling for is consistency.

My conservative friends go buck on Obama left and right for doing the same things bush did and my lib friends give him a pass for doing the same things bush did.

If something should cause outrage with a repub in office, it should cause outrage when a dem is in the office.  That's all man.  THAT'S ALL!

Of course maybe the lack of threads in R&P is due to the drop in participants in the forum and not just having a dem in the WH.

You're just now figuring out that American politics has issues with bias?  You DO realize this has been the case for every single political system on earth since the invention of the words, "I don't agree!"?

I know you like to come across as someone who's above it all.  Someone who's capable of observing us earthlings with a fair and unbiased view, but let's cut the schtick:  you're just as biased as any of us to a particular world view.  Read the title of this thread, for cryin' out loud.

Now, how about trying to post with an objective bent for a while and drop the inflammatory rhetoric.  Then we can reevaluate your pleas for an unbiased discussion with serious intent.

Something that may be confusing you is that "conservative" and "liberal" mean different things for some people and do not fully encompass or describe a specific individual's political beliefs. I'm sure that on some issues you, and hepcat, and I will disagree - yet that still doesn't mean that we can't agree on the WTFness of some SCOTUS decisions. Also - people change. Some do anyway. A vocal few profess to never ever change - because that would be compromise, and that's french for surrendering.

That's directed at hepcat, who instead of actually admitting that the opposite side has a good point, claims he's "independant" instead.

I admit, I got a chuckle out of it. While I miss verbose Zeke I actually find laconic Zeke still pretty funny.

I just re-read the 2nd page of this thread to see if I could figure out what's being discussed and I can't figure it out either. I think Zeke wants HepC to admit that a decision that was counter to Hep's stance was the correct decision. But what that decision was and what stance HepC has is beyond me. I think at this point HepC and Zeke just like to argue for the sake of arguing, kind of like brothers or an old married couple.

Off topic True story:

I was playing Watch Dogs last night  randomly scanning the NPCs and a guy named Zeke came up. His description was "Likes to troll political message boards". I just about lost it. Too perfect. I took a screen shot with my PS4 but I'm not sure how to transfer that to this board.
