Rest in Peace Robert Bork

Day 1,856, 15:09 by Ronald Gipper Reagan


A great American, and a man who was for political reasons only, sadly denied a seat on the US Supreme Court that he deserved, died today. Robert Bork was 85 years old. Although I unfortunately never had the opportunity to meet him, I had the privilege of seeing him speak once about five years ago, and even then, he had a legal intellect rivaled by only a few men in history. Here he is below pictured with America's greatest President.

Justice Antonin Scalia, another of America's great judicial leaders, referred to Bork upon his death as "one of the most influential legal scholars of the past 50 years" and "a good man and a loyal citizen."

A true loss.

Sadly he would not have approved of Ajay(RGR) in this game. Bork favored freedom and free speech. Ajay does not. Good article though; if only you could live up to it.

Scalia thinks the 2nd amendment covers personal weapons of mass destruction. Literally. In no way, shape, or form is he anything but a foolish relic.

But, I wouldn't expect Ajay Bruno to have any sort of measurable cognition whatsoever.

Longbaugh, it appears as though you have a problem with definitions of words. Weapons of mass destruction are either biological, chemical, nuclear, or radiological. Antonin Scalia believes that the 2nd amendment covers guns...

There is no such thing as this "personal weapon of mass destruction."

Most guns are semi-automatic. So i guess you think all of our police have weapons of mass destruction on them. Or perhaps you just have no idea what a semi-automatic weapon is.

As far as automatic weapons... No multiple victim shooting as ever taken place in the us where one was used...

You need to get your facts straight. Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_School_disaster

That was even worse than what happened recently and used 0 guns.
Bad people kill people, not guns.
