Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Obama loses Round 1

The Supreme Court in a 5/3 vote (Kagan abstained because she worked on the case) decided that the Arizona law that penalizes employers for hiring illegal aliens does not interfere with federal law.

Of course the three dissenting judges were Breyer, Sotomayer and Ginsberg.

This isn't the big battle, though, so don't get your hopes up. The Bush administration had already agreed that this law delineated an acceptable use of the E-Verify system, although that didn't prevent the Obama Justice Department from taking the opposite (losing) tack.

SB1070 is still in the works, so keep your eye on the ball.
