I am personally saddened by the untimely death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. He was a giant among jurists and his intellect is rarely matched on the court. It was Scalia along with Sam Alito and Clarence Thomas who held fast to original intent when it came to the Constitution, holding the line against the heretical and dangerous "living Constitution" balderdash espoused by progressives, liberals, and other legal charlatans.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stated there would be no hearings on any replacement sent up by Barack Obama and that this issue will be taken up once a new president is in place. Let's hope he sticks to his guns. And let us remember that the Senate is not obligated to approve ANY court nominee sent up by president. Democrats have never hesitated to refuse to confirm Justices nominated by Republican presidents -- such as Robert Bork and Harriet Miers.
So, folks, watch this one very carefully. Had it not been for Antonin Scalia we would have already lost the individual right to own and bear firearms. So trust in God but keep your powder dry. Our rights as described by the Bill of Rights are hanging by a very thin thread.
