Obviously that's what gets YOU all "hot and wet", since you brought it up.

That should balance the court a bit!
180+ years of only straight white males is enough.
The glarring flaw in your wish list is that Homosexuals should never be permitted on the bench. Homosexuals as you well know are mentally ill and very unpredictable and unstable.(hello Mr. Manning) 2) Women, there was a reason the founders didn't allow women to even vote let alone sit on the bench, they too are unpredictable at any given time of the month. 3) Blacks, still after all these decades are handy-capped with that 3/5th's mental capacity compared to all other races. I can go along with an Indian and a Asian (especially an Asian) or a few right wing Jewish men to help make things fair.

Except of course experience around the world shows otherwise. Other cultures are actually AHEAD of the US on gay rights in general & specifically on the issue of marriage equality.
In case you didn't notice, people from other cultures are ALREADY working their way into government, and the majority of them support gay rights & marriage equality as much as the "liberal white male" you seem to fear as well.
I embrace diversity precisely BECAUSE it doesn't always "break my way". I enjoy seeing life from different perspectives.
So now you're changing from "rightful owners" to "original owners" because you lost that talking point. Why should I return my land to the original owners? They were most likely white people as well and are long dead. You do realize native Americans didn't have the concept of ownership of land; it's one of the reasons they signed treaties with the white man foolish enough to believe they could "own" the land.
Original owners are the rightful owners. I love how you tap dance around it all. And since you are falling back on their concept of land ownership, all the more reason to allow an American Indian family reside in your residence.

I do not fear the liberal white male, I just find many of them annoying.

I said my hunch is we will see a social shift as time goes on. Many will not fight certain current social views because they lack the over all numbers. I see no reason once they obtain the numbers they need to maintain power that these groups may start rejecting the liberal white male value system. It's not an over night process.

No, I don't have to act on it; no one does.
Being gay or straight is a sexual orientation. If I don't have sex I'd still be sexually attracted to members of the same sex which means I'd still be gay. Just as a person who is sexually attracted to someone of the opposite sex is still heterosexual, whether they ever act on those feelings or not.
If you have to have sex to be gay or straight, then there are MILLIONS of married men & women who must be neither.
The orientation argument is not that important.
.
If someone has violent thoughts but doesn't act on them, how much does it matter? Are they still a violent person?

Not surprising a racist, sexist, homophobe would think that.

Thankfully President Obama and the future President Hillary don't take advice on SCOTUS appointments from morons like you.

So I can get back my first car since I was the original owner? Good to know.

The rightful owner holds the deed to the property. That would be me & my husband.

The flaw in your logic is 2-fold; assuming there is a separate "liberal white male" value system, and assuming I subscribe to it if it existed.

I don't fear diversity; never have, never will.

Hillary is facing a uphill battle in 2016. Firt "The Miss.Piggy look" is going to be a tough sell to the real men of America, that is unless the old hag look becomes popular. Second she may have to check in to the Clinic for D-Tox. They say she pounds down a Fifth everyday before lunch which would explain her falling down drunk and injuring her head.

It does indeed make you a homophobe. And usually means you're a racist, sexist, and an anti-Semite as well.

Irrational bigotry against one group often is accompanied by irrational bigotry against other groups.

Fortunately she doesn't need the vote of "real men" to win the presidency.

She needs the lamestream media to lie about her negligence in Benghazi that got our ambassador killed, or the fraud they perpetrated afterwards by blaming it on a video.

The worst thing is the lifetime appointment. The justices should have term limits. That will keep the court fresh.
