Insanity.

Quote:
After January 6 and just days before Biden was inaugurated on January 20, the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito had an inverted flag flying outside of it.

That flag was the symbol that Trump supporters were using at the time for “stop the steal.”

The flag alarmed so many of Alito’s neighbors that they took photographs of it and some of them complained to the court which was considering 2020 election cases at the time.

Alito tells the New York Times that his wife put it up.

Some press outlets are openly saying that Alito has gone full MAGA.

That’s been clear for ages now…

He and Thomas are two corrupt insane peas in a pod.

There are whispers that another Alito-centric scandal will be breaking news today.

People have personal beliefs, including USSC judges appointed for life.

Heck, their personal beliefs are the reason a president nominates them.

So what's the big deal, really?

So there's some arch-conservatives on the bench, and they'll decide decisions based on their value system.

So long as the law is not violated on its face by their actions I see no reason to get more upset about them than usual.

There are lots of USSC judges; the name of the game is to pack it with YOUR supporters, not the opposition's.

Condemning them for conservatism is little different than flaming someone for being gay: we are what we are.

Alito wants all cases decided on what god would do
He is against the separation of church and state
If Hobby lobby believes in god then they have more rights then me according to Alito

Please direct me to the Alito quote where he he said all cases will be decided on what god would do. Or whatever ‘evidence’ you can present.

You kinda fudged what terapined said: big difference between “wants” and “will.”

Anyhoo, here is what he is referring to:
