Would You Allow A Surgeon With A
40% Success Rate To Operate On You?
I am especially asking this question to all the Pbama Cultists and the Insane Liberal Clown Posse (ILCP).
If your test score is 40 out of 100, have you passed or failed the test? Again, I ask the Pbama Cultists and the ILCP.
Would you consider someone successful - would you consider them adept in their profession - if what they did was right only 40 percent of the time?
The reason I bring up these questions is because Sonia Sotomayor's rulings have BEEN REVERSED BY HIGHER COURTS 60 PERCENT OF THE TIME. Washington Times:
With Judge Sonia Sotomayor already facing questions over her 60 percent reversal rate, the Supreme Court could dump another problem into her lap next month if, as many legal analysts predict, the court overturns one of her rulings upholding a race-based employment decision.
Three of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sotomayor for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and reviewed by the Supreme Court were reversed, providing a potent line of attack raised by opponents Tuesday after President Obama announced he will nominate the 54-year-old Hispanic woman to the high court.
"Her high reversal rate alone should be enough for us to pause and take a good look at her record. Frankly, it is the Senates duty to do so," said Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America.
Sonia BolognaMayor: She's right only 40 percent of the time.
Take, for instance, the Ricci case and Sotomayor's ruling. From The Telegraph:
Judge Sonia Sotomayor of the Court of Appeals on New York's second circuit, will become a Justice of the United States Supreme Court. But before that happens, you'll hear a lot about a man called Frank Ricci.
Ricci is a fireman who happens to be dyslexic but still managed to come sixth out of 77 candidates who took an exam to become a lieutenant. But the city of New Haven, Connecticut - home of Yale, where Judge Sotomayor studied law - threw out the test because none of the 19 black firefighters who took it qualified for promotion.
After no one was promoted, Ricci and 17 other non-black firefighters, including one Hispanic, sued the city alleging racial discrimination. Sotomayor was one of seven judges (six were against) who wrote a one-page judgement throwing the test results out and denying Ricci his promotion.
Sotomayer has a powerful life story, so too does Ricci, whose case has already been heard by the Supreme Court. Most analysts believe the ruling of Sotomayor and her colleagues will be overturned.
Surgeon: Well, mr Pbama, I think you got anus cancer.
Pbama: No sir, I think it's just my ego who's trying to escape out of my body.
Sorry. No freebie advertising your "for profit" site here. Let me know if you want to BUY ADVERTISING on my blog. The rates are very fair.
After reading today about how anti-Second Amendment she is, I think we can all conclude the only reason Barry nominated her is for judicial activism regarding the Second Amendment. Damn, she is total pro-gun control.
