No matter how much Obama continues his sudden changes on issues many still think they know who he will appoint to the Supreme Court

Eugene Volokh tells Time magazine:

And Obama's run to the center surely won't stop conservatives from using the specter of a Democratic-appointed Supreme Court to try to rally support. "Its pretty clear that if he's elected and Justice Scalia or Kennedy retires that he's going to appoint someone who's very likely to reverse [the gun control decision]," says Eugene Volokh, a professor at the UCLA School of Law. Given how Obama has been responding to the recent Supreme Court decisions, however, you're not likely to hear him talking about appointing liberal justices much between now and November.

Wow. It seems like a lot of people care about your hate speech. I guess you have the right to do it though, even if it's not helping in any way.

I guess nobody cares about your hate speech. I guess you have the right to speak your hateful mind, though, even if it doesn't make any difference.

Ooohh, blog owner approval. That's why there are no comments visible!!! I guess that "open discussion" is not part of your beliefs.

Dear Caroncha:

How is quoting a paragraph from Time magazine considered "hate" speech? Are you implying that Time magazine is printing "hate speech"? What is it about the quote that constitutes "hate speech"? It seems quite accurate to me. Obama can claim that he now thinks that the DC gun ban should have been overturned (despite all his previous claims to the contrary), but would his nominees that he appoints to the Supreme Court support an individual's right to self defense? Volokh is undoubtedly correct. Do you disagree?
