I know that in the same-sex marriage case, Justice Scalia said "Ask the nearest hippie."

But I didn't know that on "Meet the Press," talking about the case, they'd all suddenly turn into hippies:
CHUCK TODD: Kathleen, it's interesting. You could argue that everybody's point of view was represented at the Supreme Court. Isn't that a good thing?... I mean, it's always everybody has seen, like, this is a piece of what they want representative in how they want to see the Constitution interpreted.

KATHLEEN PARKER: And that's true. And I appreciated Professor Ogletree's explanation of how this thing has evolved through the years. And you know, and I love Pete Williams' explanation of Scalia being a textualist and Roberts being an institutionalist. Those are both important perspectives to bring to any discussion we have on it, whatever the case may be. But to follow up on one of the things that Speaker Gingrich said, you know, I lost my train of thought.

CHUCK TODD: No, no, no, it's all right.

KATHLEEN PARKER: Oh no, no, I think this, I'm sorry, I did just kind of space there. That I'm still visualizing the White House bathed in rainbow colors, and I'm having a slight flashback.

MICHAEL ERIC DYSON: I can't wait for the red, black, and green to come.

Next up, pot legalization. Maybe even making it mandatory.

The White House in rainbow colors is such an assault on Christianity it makes me want to support Huckabee, who I cannot stand.

The Rainbow was a promise from God, who has called homo sex an abomination, that he would never again destroy the earth in a flood.

Does no one notice what they've done here? This is spitting in our face. It's the same reason they dress up in Nun costumes. To mock us.

Make no mistake, they are coming for us Christians, and they mean to shed blood.

Silly people are ignoring serious matters as they revel in gay marriage and housing quotas.

Meanwhile in Tunisia...

I bet having less than 5% of the population antagonizing the vast majority couldn't lead to problems.

Again, I'm ANXIOUSLY awaiting the swinging of the pendulum to the other side.

This is a little disturbing in that it indicates there are still people who see things in terms of hippie fear, which means they didn't see the sea change in entire younger generation's attitude sweeping over the land like a tide - all they saw was hippies from the misty past like that overused, but still relevant Japanese WW2 soldier in the cave.

Even if the hippies were the ultimate root of the attitudes, and who really knows, they still need to clear the cobwebs from their head. I would think AIDS and the aftermath had more to do with the fight for acceptance than hippies.

Our brave new future..the White House as a Google doodle for Leftwing causes.

I thought bathing the White House in a rainbow was kinda tacky and undignified. Not surprised it was done, in a pander-to-the-base kind of way.

Does everybody agree that candidate Obama's position on gay marriage was a lie? Does anybody believe the lie was believed by LGBT activists? And people voted for the known liar anyway?

We are getting the government we deserve, good and hard.

Big Mike said...

Oh, yeah, man on "Meet the Press" they're all just feeling groovy.

Old hippies never die, they just go on TV talk shows.

The sad truth is, that many kids in Obama's neighborhood in Chicago will never live to be old enough to vote, let alone marry.

Why worry about marriage, when you will be dead before you even start menstruating, or growing hair on your balls.

The adults left Washington a long time ago.

There's a spectrum of events out there from "Nero fiddles" to "Rome burns". Your link, TIPP, the growing crises in Europe - monetary, "refugees", etc - are on the burning side. I hope people are enjoying the fiddle music.

The man who wrote a book about how growing up without a father affected him negatively, celebrated a decision that will leave us with generations of fatherless and motherless children by lighting up the White House with activist colors. Oh, the irony.

I prefer the piano, but the violin/fiddle has the advantage of being comparatively portable, when the barbarians start burning stuff down.

Does this mean that, if by some unlikely --- nay, miraculous, turn of events, the conservatives rally & get a Constitutional Convention to amend the Constitution to change the SCOTUS ruling, that it'll be okay for the President to have the White House public address system blast out Handel's Messiah with the amp turned up to 11?

Just askin'.....

The leftists I've talked with, all said they knew it was a lie.

Everything Obama says is a lie. His two autobiographies are a lie.

The only people he fooled are fools.

YH, I'd settle for the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Best line if the Sunday morning shows belonged to Brit Hume on Fox News Sunday; smilingly saying "I suppose I now have a Constitutional right to dignity."

21st century media has been stoned on their own Theater for a while, and this week's bag has the most awesome rainbow-colored Buds, Man, can't blame them for overdosing.

Cynicus said...

The most powerful part of Scalia's dissent was calling out the court as not representative of America because it's too elite and Northeastern in tone. No evangelicals and no flyover states represented. I've never seen a justice reference the personal background of other justices or imply there is an echo chamber at the court.

"I suppose I now have a Constitutional right to dignity."

And to not being lonely in the night.
When does Obamamate go into effect?

Yesterday I had a conversation with a neighbor--a pretty well assimilated Iranian American. There are numbers of them in my Los Angeles suburb. Most of them are of Armenian ethnicity, although a significant number are "pure" Persians. In any case, most of them are Eastern Orthodox Catholics.

The neighbor was intelligent and well spoken. And he asked me, in all seriousness, "How long will I be able to practice my religion."

He and his family (he still has a good number of relatives in Iran) have seem what's coming with the Mullahs and Sharia Law. And now he sees the cultural left sweeping in with gay marriage and Obamacare--and is rightly worried that the things he believes in will no longer be permitted or accepted.

He has a point.
