Don't Confirm Elena Kagan

By
Education & Training with Hoffacker Associates LLC
President Obama told us what we wanted hear during the campaign and then went right ahead and did what he intended all along.

His appointment to the Supreme Court, Justice Sotomayor did the same thing, lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her support for gun ownership and the Second Amendment before voting against it in McDonald v. Chicago.

Are we going to be fooled again by Obama’s newest Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan? There are many reasons to oppose her, including her social activism. The NRA thinks that her support for the Second Amendment is just window dressing. I’ll accept their analysis.

A "no" vote, while unlikely by the whole Senate, is recommended.

Here is an ad the NRA has prepared.

And how does this relate to real estate?  Your blog quotes the NRA, so, not all agents care, how about looking at her comments and relating them to constitutional issues of Real Estate?

I don't not believe that Elena Kagan will uphold the Constitution. If was voting I would vote no.

Good luck and success.

Gary,

Everything relates to real estate because it relates to people, and we work with people. Do you suppose that some of your customers want to own guns or have the Constitution interpreted as it is witten and not as someone wishes it was written or wants to rewrite it? Anyway thanks for visting my blog and joining the conversation. :)

Too many on the left don't think all of the Constitution is created equal...

The Senators should examine the June 28 National Review story, and the Harvard law students' blog, on Kagan's decision to involve herself in the investigation of the Larry Tribe ghostwriting and plagiarism scandal despite her personal conflict of interest (she was a former Tribe ghostwriter and did a whitewash, imposing no punishment on Tribe).
