"Maybe it's just because I've been called it numerous times for my work with the ACLU, but "Commie" just doesn't hold the same sway as it used to."

Because many conservatives throw out the label "communist" inappropriately the word has lost much of its power and meaning. By calling anything they don't like "fascist" or "Nazi-like" leftists are doing exactly the same thing.

I got your point guys, and I accept that I was way off base with the Nazi comparison with those who "lean more right than left" as Zapruder mentioned.

I have no contempt whatsoever for Conservatives in general, as most are thankfully not the bible-totin' gun-carrying types now in full control of this White House. 

I think we should fear extremism on both sides.  I was just pokin' some funm that's all.

No apologies for Scalia though.  Sorry.

For those of us who know some but not enough about the justices, those of you who do know should give a small one-sentence synopsis of their philosophies.

BTW, I got them in this order...

Kennedy, Occonor, ginsburg, rinquist, bryer, scalia (personally my favorite), souter, thomas, stevens

ginsburg, breyer, o'connor, souter, kennedy, stevens, rehnquist, scalia, thomas.

deleting the posts would drop his post count.  and we couldn't have that.
