Thank you Justice Scalia!

The Right≠Wing Supreme Court That Wasnít

By ADAM LIPTAK JUNE 28, 2016
WASHINGTON ó Conservatives thought this Supreme Court term would be
different.
Still reeling from losses last year in major cases on health care and same≠sex
marriage, they welcomed a new docket in October studded with cases that seemed
poised to move the law to the right.
But then came two unexpected turns of events. Justice Antonin Scalia, the
longest≠serving member of the courtís five≠justice conservative wing, died. And
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy veered left in two of the termís biggest cases, joining
the courtís liberals in significant decisions favoring affirmative action and abortion
rights.

17. gawds done some silly things

telling sarah palin to run, destroying New Orleans, giving Pat Roberts his own tv show.

But sending fat tony down to hell was one of his better ideas......

13. No worries

I dug it up and burned it in the morning
It's all good
Poured holy water on the ashes

12. I felt guilty thinking the same yet glad at the same time

I think Scalia had a lot of control over the other Justices

14. this shows me just how much of a thug scalia was and who was the real "chief" justice on the court.

he intimidated people into siding with him.

I, for one, am overjoyed that the old bastard is dead.
