Justice? or Just US?

So Obama gets to nominate a Supreme Court Justice and he thinks that the court is supposed to be there for the underprivilaged, to right some kind of wrong. He even goes so far as to say MY JUSTICE.

WTF! MY JUSTICE. HIS JUSTICE. Are you kidding me? It's OUR Justice. OMG people, all you people who said give this man a chance. How are you liking this CHANCE you took now?

Justice is supposed to be BLIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is how candidate Obama described that view at a rally in Westerville, Ohio, on March 2, 2008:
"I want my justice to understand that part of the role of the court is to look out for the people who don't have political power," Obama said. "The people who are on the outside. The people who aren't represented. The people who don't have a lot of money; who don't have connections. That's the role of the court."

"(Obama) thinks judges should have empathy for certain litigants who come before them. Of course if you have empathy for everybody who comes before you, there are two sides to every case. If you have empathy for both sides then that's the same as having no empathy at all. So what he means is he wants empathy for one side and what's wrong with that is it is being partial instead of being impartial. A judge is supposed to have empathy for no one but simply to follow the law." -says Wendy Long, legal counsel to the Judicial Confirmation Network.

They are chompin` at the bit, and realize that free markets can be crushed in the name of "saving everyone" with government money. The courts will just be there to justify socialism, and that is basically what Obama said. With near 50% of Americans not paying tax, but recieving money, the boulder is now gaining momentum. Liberals (socialists) are trying to create a government where Obama can stay in office longer than 8 years already too now. Eight years later with America bankrupted, he will still be talking about "A lot of work to do". The difference being "working on one world unification and loss of all liberties to FIX everything".

Obama is also showing his contempt for Isreal in tangible ways now. All the campaign jargon was so much BS. I cannot believe that anyone in their right mind does not see what is really happening. They either do not understand, or choose to wear blinders.

I WANT to work. I do NOT WANT government funds. They are doing everything in their power to change that. Sad

With only months to research a nomination, we can be sure that the choice will be someone close to Obama, and completly from the hip.
The simple fact that justice is blind should make everyone equal in the eyes of the court. Now we will have to rely on Obama to tell us who will have the upper hand in the legal process

From your post to Speedycat's response, shines went through me. It's wrong, just all wrong and people are blind to it. They don't want to hear about it.

Should we all just quit our jobs now and join the rank of government assitance? *sad sigh*
