Well not all the time are they liberal or conservative.

They were conservative when they selected a President who caused all of the misery this nation is now experiencing, while he lays low on a ranch somewhere in Texas having admitted he screwed-up and misled the Congress and nation and knows he should be in prison.

Lilly Ledbetter also includes.....

The Commerce Clause is an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The clause states that the United States Congress shall have power "To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes." Courts and commentators[who?] have tended to discuss each of these three areas of commerce as a separate power granted to Congress. It is not uncommon to see the individual components of the Commerce Clause referred to under specific terms: The Foreign Commerce Clause, the Interstate Commerce Clause,[1] and the Indian Commerce Clause.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Pub.L. 88-352, 78 Stat. 241, enacted July 2, 1964) was a landmark piece of legislation in the United States[1] that outlawed major forms of discrimination against racial, ethnic, national and religious minorities and women.[2] It ended unequal application of voter registration requirements and racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public ("public accommodations").

Powers given to enforce the act were initially weak, but were supplemented during later years. Congress asserted its authority to legislate under several different parts of the United States Constitution, principally its power to regulate interstate commerce under Article One (section 8), its duty to guarantee all citizens equal protection of the laws under the Fourteenth Amendment and its duty to protect voting rights under the Fifteenth Amendment. The Act was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, who would later sign the landmark Voting Rights Act into law.

Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 (Pub.L. 111-2, S. 181) is a federal statute in the United States that was the first bill signed into law by President Barack Obama on January 29, 2009. The Act amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 stating that the 180-day statute of limitations for filing an equal-pay lawsuit regarding pay discrimination resets with each new paycheck affected by that discriminatory action. The law directly addressed Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., 550 U.S. 618 (2007), a U.S. Supreme Court decision that the statute of limitations for presenting an equal-pay lawsuit begins on the date that the employer makes the initial discriminatory wage decision, not at the date of the most recent paycheck.

A bill, also called the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, to supersede the decision, was introduced in the 110th United States Congress but was never enacted, as it was passed by the House but failed in the Senate.

During the campaign for the 2008 elections, the Democrats criticized Republicans for defeating the 2007 version of the bill, citing Republican presidential candidate John McCain's opposition to the bill and candidate Barack Obama's support.[1]

No-oone on the planet looks uglier than a democrat after Benghazi. It won't be long before mass retaliation against the democrats. And it won't be because of a movie. It will be because of Obama and people like you. Mark my words. A world of hurt is coming the way of the Democrat.

Call the justices what they are- Democrats & Republicans.

There are currently 4 Democrats on the court & 5 Republican. Hopefully President Obama gets to replace one of those Republican justices with another Democrat and flip the court to a solid 5-4 Democrat majority for 20+ years.

If Romney is elected we'll have a 6-4 Republican majority that will take away a woman's right to choose their medical care and take away gay people's rights.

The stakes couldn't be more clear. It's not about Benghazi or gas prices or even the economy. This election is about freedom & equal rights.

Is it the same court that "elected" George W. Bush president in 2000?
