Roberts nomination -- Does the Constitution Matter?

Are we no longer a democracy guided by the principles of the Constitution? Where is our nation going to when "slightly more than half of all Americans what to know" a Supreme Court nominee's views on a controversial issue, and see this is a the crux of the matter, versus actually following the letter of the law as it is written?

My question is, if so many American's care about abortion, and believe it is so important, why don't they push for a Constitutional amendment? That would solve the whole controversy. At the very least, while immoral killing of millions of children, we would be within the law. The truth is those that oppose true freedom of choice--the choice to be informed, and the choice to know the real consequences of an abortion--do not have a logical argument that resonates. It is just not convincing. If it was, we would see the country going in a different direction. Wake up America. Stop the murders!
Washington -- Slightly more than half of all Americans, and a solid majority of women, want to know John Roberts position on abortion before the Senate votes on whether to elevate him to the Supreme Court. Abortion is sure to come up at his Senate confirmation hearings and an Associated Press-Ipsos survey found 52 per cent believe he should give his position on the controversial matter before lawmakers vote on him, while 42 per cent said he should not.
On a second thought, this sounds like more statistics propaganda. I find it hard to believe that more than half of American's and a solid majority of women care this much about abortion. My propaganda alarm went off on this one.

Who did they survey; progressive, lesbian women in San Francisco or maybe it was a survey done to the American Abortionist Association of America?

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
