SCOTUS 8:1 Thomas dissenting

Apparently Clarence Thomas is the only judge not having their head firmly inserted in their ass.

Seriously - don't we already have enough American citizen illegal drug users, that we don't really need to be importing more from overseas? This is nothing but a huge slap in the face to the American taxpayer who winds up footing the bills for incarceration, other crimes committed to support habits, babies born to them while they're here, etc etc.

[CLARIFICATION]
These people are NOT American citizens.

The Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that legal immigrants cannot be deported when convicted of relatively minor drug-possession offenses, a decision likely to affect thousands of people.

By an 8-1 vote, the high court handed a setback to the Bush administration and ruled the immigrants cannot be deported for drug offenses that are felony crimes under some state laws, but less serious misdemeanors under federal law[...]

Okay, they are legal "immigrants" but are they American Citizens?

Theres a difference.

If they are Citizens, then I agree with the majority, because it would stink of bannishment.

If they are just immigrants in the process of citizenship, thats completely different.

In fact, the reason the process takes so long is to see if you can be a good citizen and if you break the law, that is an early indicator of how you would treat your full citizenship.

but are they American Citizens?

No. They're just here on green cards, student visas, visitor visa, etc.

Random question, Extremely selfish.

Is bitsblog still active?

If so, did they ban me?

WHY?

I make a point of not being a dick on science like blogs.

Well, I'm not a dick on yours, but I'm crude, yet never a dick.

I can't log into bitsblogs site, haven't for a week, I road it out for a while, but then I realized that I get a "flash" and I realize, that it still exists.

Not asking for you to campaign for me, but can you let me know WHY I was banned?

Thanks hoss, your rock.
