Supreme Court Punts On Affirmative Action — For Now

The Supreme Court punted on affirmative action Monday, issuing a 7-1 decision that sent the case back to the lower courts for a do-over.

Eight months after the case was heard, the high court punted, deciding not to issue even a narrow ruling on the merits of the University of Texas’s affirmative action policy for student admissions, let alone a broader decision revisiting the principles of affirmative action as determined last decade.

Obamacare-type 1000 plus page monstrosity called Immigration Reform Act that is loaded with pork and unrelated laws (including Obama's job bill that failed before) is hurting Gang of 8.
Big surprise to you-why?
'Just like they did with Obamacare, some in Congress intend to “Pelosi” the amnesty bill. They’ll pass it in order to find out what’s in it. And just like the unpopular, unaffordable Obamacare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-lb disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans.

I am an ardent supporter of legal immigration. I’m proud that our country is so desirable that it has been a melting pot making a diverse people united as the most exceptional nation on earth for over two centuries. But I join every American with an ounce of common sense insisting that any discussion about immigration must center on a secure border. The amnesty bill before the Senate is completely toothless on border security.

It's beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security.

Senator Rubio said he wouldn’t support a process that was rushed and that was not transparent. I hope that he, and all members who believe in open process, will vote against Majority Leader Reid’s motion to silence debate on a bill no one has read.

And I would further issue a challenge to the sponsors of this bill: if your proposal is so good, then why not commit to extensive, open debate on it? Why do we have to pass this out of here before Members go home to face their constituents over July 4th? Whose interests do we serve?”

Obama is going after those that leak classified Information. It is a crime.
I guess you want our secrets published on line.
Leaking a classified military operation putting soldiers at risk. Yep Whatever is for it.
Leaking how we track potential terrorists & break up plots, yep Whatever is for it.
If leaks of classified information are the problem, why not collect data only on those individuals who have access to classified data and have effectively given permission to be monitored by virtue of accepting a security clearance?

And the Magic Negro got Bin Laden, too:]
Shame on you. You're just another goof who hates our American veterans.(I bet that you threw rocks and yelled baby killers at them in the street too) Jill and First Lady Michelle have a better track record on helping returning American veterans get a good job then republicans in Congress who have voted against Veterans Jobs Bills !

The obama administration has been going out of the way to prove the republican conspiracies about the obama administration are true.

First Benghazi was a coverup, democrat party it's straight up statist, the Fascist Obama administration has criminalized the API and news-gathering process, the IRS, NSA and PRISM spying has become obama gestapo agencies, more sellouts and whistleblowers, next we will be finding Obama bin Lying real birth certificate...

Didn't hear this one.
The Irish politician was staunchly anti-British, so it's not surprising that he'd also attack the American President for the strong U.S.-British alliance.

LOL

Talking Points totally misstated the ruling. They vacated the lower courts ruling.

" The Supreme Court vacated a decision that upheld the affirmative action program at the University of Texas.

But it did not strike down the program — rather, in a 7-1 decision, the justices ordered a new hearing, using a different legal standard.

The court said the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals should rehear the case "under a correct analysis."

The University of Texas automatically admits in-state students who graduate in the top 10 percent of their high school class. It uses race as one of many factors to fill its remaining spots.
