what does drilling have to do with the Constitution.

sad that a court has to decide in favor of continued destruction of a very closed ecosystem in favor of big oil

Wow, so conservatives now support the federal court system? I think that's the big news here. Interesting how so many of them want to abolish the federal courts when they come down on the side of liberal arguments.

Everybody has to win some and lose some but is seems that the Constitutional scholar and his AG are losing pretty often these days. The lefties will soon be in calling names and the like.

I bet there are a lot of Louisianans celebrating this decision but they need to remember that there are higher courts and it takes some time to get to the one in DC.

Telling an industry that they can't operate because the POTUS doesn't want them to is not very constitutional if you ask me.

You don't seem to know a lot about the Constitution and how it is applied to various cases. Maybe you could read it, just for the fun of it.

How many deep water wells have been drilled and how many accidents like this last one have there been.

Do you know that attorneys for both sides get to deliver their cases to those judges. This time the government's lawyers must have done the least acceptable job.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. All of a sudden you learn that the federal courts don't always rule just on same sex marriage.

It's common sense that we support when it is exhibited - regardless of its source.
