The legacy of the village idiot lives on in the form of that steely eyed conservative Supreme Court Justice Roberts. The decisions that will come down because of his lunacy will set this country back, not forward. Here is the latest effect of this joke of a man.

How do you figure this is all Justice Roberts' decision or responsibility? Look to page 8 for the summary of how each Justice voted on the parts of the case.

For those who actually care to read the brief it can be found here:

Who wrote this warm, steaming , pile of Pelosi? I don't see his/her name anywhere but I don't see anything in the piece that sounds like it is written by a constitutional lawyer. In fact, I see this person trying to interpret the Constitution to fit his liberal thinking instead of being fair at all. I guess this is one of the main reasons I didn't do anything to let the al Times of New York know my e-mail address when I changed it. Yep, that is it.

Be be a village idiot you would have to have been born in a village.

In that case that makes Obama the village idiot.

Stop stealing my names!

Obama is the village idiot and I am the one who gave him his EARNED name.

Roberts is awesome by the way.

He has done a fantastic job.

Oh, so you voted for Obama? I mean, I did but I certainly don't call him the village idiot...as a matter of fact, even though I didn't vote for Bush I never called him the village idiot either...nor Clinton. Hmm...I digress though...so you gave him his earned name? Wow, you must be proud.

Settle down Francis. Get a grip, take a deep breath & realize that people questioning a government or country is a good thing. After all, look at how many people have been taking potshots at Obama...should we call them traitors? Global crap, explain that little statement if you can.

The thing that makes this the greatest nation on earth is our freedom. Most of which are never used or even considered to be freedoms.

For example, the freedom to leave anytime you wish.
