Sotomayor accuses colleagues of trying
to ‘wish away’ racial inequality

Washington Post, by Robert Barnes

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/22/2014 10:38:36 PM

Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s fierce defense of the affirmative action efforts such as the ones that helped move her from a Bronx housing project to the upper echelons of American law found renewed voice Tuesday in an impassioned dissent that accused colleagues of trying to “wish away” racial inequality — and drew a tart response from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In her most personal moment in 41 /2 years on the court, Sotomayor read part of her dissent from the bench to emphasize her disagreement with six colleagues who upheld Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning the consideration of race in public university admissions.

Comments:
Sotomayor doesn´t know when to keep her mouth shut. A 6-2 decision means some of her liberal judges disagree with her. Sounds like she wants to legislate from the bench.

She wants results instead of opportunity as the prime example of empathy. Yet true empathy would tell less qualified applicants to work harder. Those who succeed would then be proud of their work and not be accused of getting something merely because of being a favored group.

She would just change who is the favored group.

Sotomayor is a prime example of the damage affirmative action has caused. had we not had that in place she may have still become a justice, but perhaps her mind would have been so damaged

I fail to see how treating every race exactly the same hurts minorities. Seems to me they want special treatment because of the color of their skin or their country of origin - which is unconstitutional.

This nation is as diversified as it is ever going to be. Why should someone of color take a seat from someone more qualified ? Shouldn´t we encourage our children to work hard instead of expecting a free ride because of their color ? It´s not just college, it´s cradle to grave.

If you have never missed out on a job that you were qualified for so the employer could meet numbers by hiring a minority, you can´t understand.

Ms. Sotomayor needs to get out of her ivory tower and meet the real Americans. The only place you find racism is within the minority communities. When minorities begin to value education they will then begin to see that race does not matter. The inequality of the races is found between their ears. Going to a university when you are totally unprepared to learn the subjects you are studying is a total waste of time and you cannot succeed so affirmative action does not help. If we have to lower the standards then the degree means absolutely nothing.

Sotomayor is dumb. Another example of Obama appointing unqualified people to important positions. Earlier she had a number of cases overturned became she made wrong decisions.

As for affirmative action, it hurts qualified minorities and helps those less qualified. We avoid minority doctors, for example, because they are more likely to include those, if white, would never have been accepted into medical school.

Soto used to be a member of an exclusive all woman´s club.By definition,it excluded males.It´s gender discrimination but no men want to sit around a bunch of gabby women,so it goes unchallenged.

Obama is the first affirmative action president,preceded by 50 years of white guilt nagging and the results are somewhat less than impressive.

Reading these comments and all of the ones I read in the Post, I don´t recall one about K-12 under performance or the impact of Single Parent families on Educational Performance. Without these two problems being solved, there is no Affirmative Action solution that would have any chance of success because Affirmative Action quickly becomes de facto quotas. That would be advancement of unprepared students destined to fail at a higher level.

Hagel quietly notifies Congress
of transfer of 6 Gitmo detainees
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel quietly notified Congress last week that the military is set to transfer six Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Uruguay as soon as next month, The New York Times revealed Wednesday. The deal has been waiting for Mr. Hagel’s approval since March, but stalled after the Obama administration received a wave of backlash for releasing five Taliban detainees to Qatar in exchange for the release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The administration did not give Congress 30-days notice in that deal, but argued it was still legal because any delay could have risked Sgt. Bergdahl’s life.

The energy-rich country on the eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula announced plans Wednesday to send the first unmanned Arab spaceship to Mars in 2021. The ruler of the UAE´s emirate of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said the mission will prove the Arab world is still capable of delivering scientific contributions to humanity, despite the many conflicts across the Middle East.

California Death Penalty
Unconstitutional, Federal Judge Says

A federal judge in Southern California ruled Wednesday that California’s death penalty was unconstitutional. The “dysfunctional administration of California’s death penalty system,” wrote Judge Cormac J. Carney of United States District Court, has led to “inordinate and unpredictable” delays in the execution of inmates. The delays, the judge wrote, means that sentences are carried out against only “a trivial few of those sentenced to death.” In essence, he wrote, sentences by juries have been transformed to “life in prison, with the remote possibility of death.” In making his ruling, Judge Carney vacated the death sentence of

A minor actress from Texas was sentenced Wednesday to 18 years in prison for sending ricin-tainted letters to President Obama, former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and the head of his gun-control group. Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, was also ordered to pay $367,000 restitution as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in December to one count of developing, producing, possessing and transferring a biological agent for use as a weapon. She bought the materials — castor bean seeds and lye — online. The FBI arrested her in June 2013 after she was indicted by a federal grand jury.

Israel agreed Wednesday to halt its airstrikes on Gaza for five hours in order to allow humanitarian aid, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday. It warns however that it will retaliate "firmly and decisively" if Hamas or other militant groups launch attacks on Israel during that time. The cease-fire request came from U.N.

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday. The White House is arguing that Obama adviser David Simas is immune from subpoena by the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into the political office that he directs. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa that the Simas subpoena threatens the constitutional separation of powers. White House lawyers spent an hour and 15 minutes Tuesday briefing the committee´s staff behind closed doors on the political office´s

Lawmakers pushed back Tuesday against the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to garnish the paychecks of accused polluters, advancing a bill that would block the new authority. The House Committee on Appropriations approved the countermeasure as a policy rider on a $30.2 billion spending bill for natural resources agencies, including the EPA, the Interior Department and U.S. Forest Service. The amendment by Rep. Tom Graves, Georgia Republican, passed the committee in a voice vote, signaling an absence of strong opposition, if not support for prohibiting the EPA from claiming authority to garnish wages to collect fines

The black swan upset buoyed Carr’s campaign, opening a fresh spigot of cash and prompting comparisons to the Virginia economics professor who was written off by everyone until he toppled Cantor.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
