Breakfast Scramble (Wednesday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Liberal reads Constitution, can’t find First Amendment, from Lucy Madison, CBS News [1]:

During an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America this morning, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer addressed the recent controversy over a Florida Pastor’s plan to hold a Quran-burning rally on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, saying he wasn’t convinced the First Amendment would protect such an action if the case were brought to the court in the future.

“Holmes said it doesn’t mean you can shout ‘fire’ in a crowded theater,” Breyer told George Stephanopoulos during the GMA interview [2], referring to Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., who wrote the opinion in a 1919 Supreme Court decision that addressed Freedom of Speech. “Well, what is it? Why?  Because people will be trampled to death. And what is the crowded theater today?  What is the being trampled to death?”

Does Justice Stephen Breyer want us to believe that the Right of Free Speech is conditioned on the offended parties ability to restrain from violence.   That is to say Piss Cbriss are constitutionally protected because Christian aren’t prone to violence, whereas burning the Koran is not constitutionally because because Moslems are easy to provoke.

Yet how does Breyer square idea that the propensity can trump the Constitution with his support for Roe v. Wade which leads to the violent slaughter of circa one million Americans a year.    Does Breyer mean to suggest that more Eric Rudolph’s would lead to the reversal of Roe?   I think not, and think Breyer not think much.   Do you?

Dumb blond sports reporter goes into men’s locker room and gets offended. Recently sports reporter chick, Ines Sainz, went into the New York Jet’s, a male professional football team, and got offended because the males acted like well men, from Deborah Hastings, AOL News [3]:

Yes, she wears low-cut shirts, tight jeans and has photos on her employer’s website showing her in a bikini. But that has nothing to do with being a professional sports reporter for Mexico’s TV Azteca, she said today.

“It’s my style,” the 32-year-old television journalist told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” [4] She’s not trying to elicit leers, she said. “It is my style for all my life.””I’m not trying to provoke anything,” she told Meredith Vieira on NBC’s “Today” [5] show this morning. “I don’t think I need to change.  They are going to change.”

It is certainly Sainz’s right to dress like a slut.  Free world.   However semi-nude males also have the right to react to Sainz as if she were a slut when she willingly walks into a male locker room.    Sainz has the right to her style.   Fifty-three male football player have the right to act like men around semi-nude women.  It is their style.  Fair is fair.

Mona Charen,  National Review [6], note Dim Won’s, b/k/a Barack Obama delusion of competence:

The president himself doesn’t at all concede that government is attempting to do too much (and failing at most of it). On the contrary, his vanity (and it is a common one for left-wingers) is that he believes his particular ideas on business investment, medical procedures, housing, and thousands of other matters are the solutions to our woes, but “politics” keeps getting in the way

It is easy to delude a dim brain my merely telling them that showing up (on occasion) is good  enough.  Being  President is hard work and Obama disdains work.

Besmirching black females, by Matt Cover:

(CNSNews.com [7]) – The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.

Note the National Institute of Mental Health wants black men to wash their thingies after sex, not before.     Evidently to the NIMH women are dirty.    Note that washing their equipment after sex will do nothing to prevent the spread of the HIV to the previous woman partner.   Just wait until  Mrs. Obama hears about this.

Hat tip:   Rick, Wizbang [8].

Commentary from a fifty-three percenter, LauraW. Ace of Spades: [9]

Just from a female perspective; how about having them wash before sex, too? What could it hurt, right?

It takes a women with balls spunk to hang with the morons.

Besmirching the dead, what is known is that Billy Lucas is dead.   What follows from a blog called “Joe My God [10]“, is idle speculation:

Another dead victim of anti-gay bullying, this time in Indiana.  He was a teenager who didn’t quite fit in. His classmates said Billy Lucas was bullied for being different. The 15-year-old never told anyone he was gay but students at Greensburg High School thought he was and so they picked on him. “People would call him ‘fag’ and stuff like that, just make fun of him because he’s different basically,”

The linked article, here [11], does not establish that the late Mr. Lucas was homosexual,   even bullied or even committed suicide, although it seems a probable cause of death.

Teen suicide is a problem.   However the mere fact of Mr. Lucas’ death is no reason to draft his corpse into the cause of advancing the homosexual political agenda, which no evidence was presented that the late Mr. Lucas even supported.    If Joe wants to advance his political agenda, let him recruit some real, not imagined, living, and not dead, homosexuals to his cause.   Good luck.
