Selections from this afternoon’s in-box:
You, who are on the public payroll, should take your camping gear and go camp out south of Tucson for a week.
I’m certain you couldn’t hack it and you would be wishing you had a gun for protection.
You, in your comfortable office at CU, don’t have a clue what Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California have been dealing with for years. Now it’s everywhere.
Have you volunteered to take in and support your share of ILLEGALS – lodging, food, ESL, medical care? Why not? You are expecting the rest of us to do it.
I stand in line often behind mother, father, and 3-5 kids (none of whom speak English) in the grocery store while they pay for a whole basket of groceries with government cards…..then I pay my hard-earned cash for what I can afford. My tax dollars are being spent by persons of your ilk to support an invasion of people breaking the law.
You call yourself a lawyer? What exactly does “LAW” mean to you?
OUT HERE IN THE REAL WORLD, WE ARE SICK OF YOUR MEANINGLESS GUILT. WE ARE SICK OF YOUR REDISTRIBUTION EFFORTS. WE ARE SICK OF BEING TREATED LIKE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS WHEN LAW-BREAKERS ARE TREATED LIKE YOUR BEST BUDDIES.
We had a good idea here at one time — people aspired to come here legally and become “Americans”.
Hope you are learning Spanish.
Ever read Atlas Shrugged? We are there.
P.S. Law students suing their law schools because they don’t have a job waiting when they get out……? You have created a bunch of whiney, lazy, monsters.
You’re an overpaid liberal a$$wipe. I can’t wait for Thursday when Scalia writes the opinion for tossing Obammycare. And I hope he lives a long time and continues to drive you crazy with his conservative decisions.
I’ll be back in touch on Thursday to rub it in your face.
It’s really pathetic that someone with your obvious limited knowledge of the US Constitution is allowed to pollute the minds of students of taxpayers who pay your salary.
If Scalia is a ranting old man perhaps you would not mind debating him at some point…what say you???
Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to go fuck yourself you miserable liberal piece of dogshit. And I mean that in the nicest possible way asshole.
There is no measure of how far and how fast right wing people adverse to you can ( and hopefully will) bring this fight TO YOUR DOORSTEP.
Its a dame shame that idiots like yourself have such BULLY PULPIT [capitalization supplied]. Beware there are patriots among us that understand how the country was founded. It is the truth that you fear. Ugly liars like yourself are growing weaker every day.
Do you remember/understand this?
“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”
Quality later addition:
You’re such a Moronic Socialist Imbecil.
What I find interesting about this sort of reaction is the intensity of the set of beliefs that generates it. These beliefs tend to include:
(a) The Constitution makes the ideology of late 19th century laissez-faire economic theory the fundamental law of the land.
(b) Questions regarding whether this is a desirable thing from a moral or practical standpoint — such as for example the question of whether in practice that ideology produces monopoly capitalism rather than The Garden of Libertarian Virtues — are “therefore” not admissible into political and legal debate as a matter of definitional fiat.
So “liberals” (reminder: this means people who believe in having an income tax and some sort of regulatory administrative state) are not merely wrong — they’re cheating, as it were. They don’t just have bad beliefs: they refuse to play the legal game by its “real” rules.
Update: Regarding the discussion in the comments regarding the inherent laziness of coal miners:
