Activist judges

With the elevation of a conservative to the Supreme Court, I think it's time to revisit the question of activist judges that the right is always talking about. And I think I agree with them, believe it or not. There are at least two activists on the high court, if you define an activist as someone who wants to change the law to agree with his own views rather than to follow the law. The two are Scalia and Thomas. If anyone is trying to create an activist agenda on the court is these two. Scalia has been quoted as being a true-blue conservative religious believer and Thomas in his opinions seems to want to eliminate two amendments to the Constitution and turn us back to the days of slavery. If you're going to talk about activist judges, let's talk about those two.

Cool Blog, I never really thought about it that way.

I have a Hurricane Katrina blog. It pretty much covers hurricane related stuff.

Thank you - and keep up the thoughts!

Back to the days of slavery?

Isn't Clarence Thomas still a black man?

Indeed, he is, Mark, but in his decisions he seems to want to negate the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution which gave slavery a bad name.
