Sorry if this is a dup'e, but you need to see this picture of Scalia from yesterday:



It appears that Thomas Moore hat has gone to Scalia's head.

Who is his boss? The Catholic Church? or ALL of the people of the USA?

Why can't someone like this be fired?

2. Rather obvious possibility of inflation of somesort going on here, delusions of grandeur of

the same type that took us into a war against an INNOCENT nation, Iraq.

It's scarey to have that sort of thing going on on the highest court there is.

Perhaps someone should give him his wish; hat and head out the door, without separating anything from his body, of course.

note that kagan and sotomayor are looking in the same direction;
thomas and scalia appear to be trying to look elsewhere....

12. The "More Hat"


Sir Thomas More

More's final words on the scaffold were: "The King's good servant, but God's First."

Maybe Scalia intends to try for sainthood?

14. I'm wondering how much of the NRA is Catholic, Eric Prince, his Xe -ness, who has high interest

in the NRA's Bushmaster markets abroad IS Catholic. You may recall that Xe was formerly the big war profiteer in Iraq, known as Blackwater.

There's also some rather aristocratic organizations, such as the Papal Order of the Golden Spur, a supporter of the Shah or Iran before his deposition, and this http://www.tfp.org/ out there.

Just part of what's at stake here in re the 2nd Amendment and, hence, to other issues that will come before this court:

18. It's interesting that he's not pledging allegiance and ALSO happens to be wearing the hat

given him by a Catholic organization dedicated to Sir Thomas More, hence the Thomas More hat. If you don't know why that is significant, it would probably be more useful to you to remember that google is your friend, so you can decide for yourself.

Those of us who are concerned about separation of church and state wonder why a judge on SCOTUS would appear to be so completely ignorant of what his behavior looks like in this situation, but then I guess you'd have to know why Thomas More is remembered to get that point, but then also I suppose, if it is a signal about Tony's attitude toward separation between church and state, it is not lost on those on the RELIGIOUS side of those who care about that issue.

19. And if that's too much, perhaps we can agree that this at least raises questions about Tony. You'll

hear/see the media do it's usual propaganda in support of corporate personhood and downplay this and I won't deny that there is some possibility that they are right, but it's only a possibility, so that means that there is also a possibility that they are wrong. Right?:Wrong? even at a 50:50 probability, I'd still say that's significant considering what's coming onto the SCOTUS calendar pretty soon.

Just the empty hat, representing Scalia---like the empty cowboy hat represented Dubya for all those miserable years. Talk about a deserving target. Maybe attach a loaded AR-15 magazine to the hat, for a meaningful decoration....

24. Is google broken? Read up a little on Sir Thomas More & compare what you find out with

separation of church and state issues today.

You might also review things that were said about separation of church and state during the last campaign year, see Paul Ryan, and birth control legal issues within the context of the Affordable Care Act of 2010, for example, but the issues have been just under the surface ever since Kennedy, so you might review his speech on the matter too.

37. He always has the nastiest expression on his face.

He is a living example of the meaning of the word "dyspeptic."

Although the literal meaning refers to indigestion, it developed to mean having or habitually displaying bad temper.
