Scaly is my nickname for him, appropriate because he's just as unevolved as a reptile.
So is that pig Clarence Thomas.
The Republican Party is the new KKK.
Sleaze ball RayGun poisoned the USA with that cretin.
I hope that fat little Sicilian sleazeball drops dead soon.
He's a pig, but he does wear interesting hats.
He's got a ton of kids. I wonder which one is gay. Too obvious if it's the priest, right?
Scalia thinks the new pope is too liberal.
He was appointed by a guy with Alzheimer's. That says it all.
Micropenis? He hasn't been able to find that thing in years.
I wonder if there will be a backlash against Italian Americans because of this terrible human being?
Justice Kennedy is such a GREAT Human Being...thanks Ronnie for appointing him. The three most important gay decisions were decided by Reagan appointee Anthony Kennedy...Thanks Mr President! (and I don't mean President Clinton who signed DOMA)
Possibly the worst human in America. And that's being kind.
Hopefully Congress will improve the moral screening process, on Supreme Court nominations, so somebody like Scalia never gets in again.
He's an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I wish I could read what they'll write about him in history books in a hundred years or so.
Had McCain won the White House in 2008, we would have waited another 20 years for this.
Don't be surprised if Justice Ginsberg retires in the coming year.
I'm Italian and gay, Scalia is an embarrassment on our culture.
Mangia merde e morte!
(eat shit and die)
Ronnie Raygun cackles in Hell every time that asshole opens his mouth in court.
Between the Vatican in Rome and Scalia, Italians are not looking too good.
Don't forget "Eyeroll" Alito - another "paisan"
Scalia should go back to Italy and rape an underaged girl. Italian Heads of State get away with that type of thing all the time now.
R22, those people have more in common with religion then they do with a nationality. The people that started prop 8 did it for religious reasons and hate not some ethnic identity.
Uh, no they dont R24. The former Prime Minister of Italy, Silvio Berlusconi was just found Guilty, 2 days ago.
And yet without Scalia, the Prop 8 decision would have never happened. Go figure.
Last time I checked, civil marriage is pretty much rejected in Israel, which means gay marriages as well as inter-religious marriages are out of bounds. However, gay marriages (and inter-religious marriages) performed abroad are recognized in Israel.
The point being, The Vatican is Italy and Italy is the Vatican. PLUS Once Italian, always Italian, even if you were born in the USA.
Jew haters are vile.
Oh, you can hate Italians but not Jews here, I see.
R31 I hate to break it to you, but the Vatican or Vatican City is actually a small country. It operates independent state of Italy for almost 100 years.
Get with the program and stop hating. You are just as bad as the people who hate us.
Italy is working on gay issues just like us:
[ PLUS Once Italian, always Italian, even if you were born in the USA.]
That's rich R31.
So I guess Jews in America have no affiliation to Israel. Or Hispanic or African Americans should stop using those words too. How about the Irish? English as the official American language hello? Once a Brit, always a Brit.
Go eat your Freedom Fries and get fat elsewhere.
Damn. I do miss Reagan.
R36 Dont worry old man, you will be with your hero soon enough. I imagine you can smell the brimstone already.
[quote]PLUS Once Italian, always Italian, even if you were born in the USA.
What does that mean? Is it code for something I don't know about?
Here's a prediction: after Hilary is elected, during her 2nd term, she'll of course will have to replace one of the (hopefully) conservative SCOTUS judges. I predict that she'll name by-then former president Obama, a constitutional lawyer.
Just a thought.
R38, yes, its code for I am a racist bigot.
Can a former president be a Supreme Court Justice? That scenario is almost too good to be true. Damn, I'd rather Obama be on the SC than in the White House.
[quote]Can a former president be a Supreme Court Justice?
How soon they forget.
Obama as Supreme Court Justice? That is an awesome seed that needs to be planted!
Taft went from President to Chief Justice.
Are there two kinds of Republicans? I live on the East Coast and work with several Republicans who are pretty cool on social issues - they are pro-choice and don't give a shit if people are gay. They are Republican because of money and not spending a lot, etc. They are also upset because the Tea Party is embarrassing, and to them come across as mentally ill. I wonder if there are other Republicans who are not religious nutjobs.
R45 Former NJ Governor Christine Todd Whitman wrote an excellent book about this.
[quote] I know lots of Jews that are conservative and voted for prop 8 to ban gay marriage.
And FWIW, Scalia's not an Italian piece if shit. He's a piece of shit who just happens to be Italian.
Scalia is a Conservative Republican, bottom line they are always the group who want to Fuck us over. Not some specific race.
R45, you know, those type of Republicans that say its only about the money and not anti-gay are still anti-gay.
I know those type as well. I never see them actually standing up for gay rights, organizing support groups or protest etc.
Silence = Death that was the saying about AIDS back in the 80's. That works for so called "give a shit" Republicans who think they are liberal just because they don't go out of their way to hurt us.
It's just a passive aggressive stance. Because to them, money is more important then equal rights.
[quote]Justice Kennedy is such a GREAT Human Being...thanks Ronnie for appointing him.
Some Freeper was asking on their site as to which "RINO" appointed him. I took great pleasure in providing the requested info.
Scalia and Ginsburg are big opera queens and they sometimes socialize together.
"The point being, The Vatican is Italy and Italy is the Vatican. PLUS Once Italian, always Italian, even if you were born in the USA."
What the hell are you talking about? Most rabidly religious yahoos, no matter what religion they believe in, are usually anti-gay! WTF does a religious person's ethnic background have to do with anything? Isn't being gay a 'sin' in ANY religion?!!
That said, Scalia is an evil douchebag of the highest order, he just so happens to be Italian!
Scalia doesn't even make sense. His decisions ramble on with feelings, hyperbole, and hypothetical gibberish. He rarely sounds as if he has any legal training and education AT ALL. He's really depressing.
What r53 said. It's all about his personal beliefs and opinions, not any real legal scholarship. HOW did someone like this get to be on the Supreme Court?
R54, it's not who you know it's who you blow.
Scalia is an insufferable cunt.
Ronni was the best president in history. I miss those days when America was at its best.
R57, your joking right? He gutted alternative energy back then which would have made us independent of the oil in the middle east, and 9/11 probably would not have happened.
Scalia is an angry bitch, but she is our bitch today! How dose that feel little bitch?
Here is to you having a stroke sooner than later bitch. Bitch is just waiting our time in her little black dress. Step aside and let the grown up run the country. You could always quite if you don't like your job.
R57 What do you miss the most? Was it the time he secretly sold weapons to terrorists then used the money from that sale to fund a different group of terrorists? Or was it when he exploded the debt to obscene proportions? My favorite was the record breaking number of criminal indictments his administration accumulated.
R57, I am with you, why I personally love dealing with all the mentally ill homeless people on the street since he closed the mental institutions to all no violent psychopaths.
[quote]Ronni was the best president in history. I miss those days when America was at its best.
"Ronni" who? Chasen? President of the Publicist's Guild of Los Angeles? Yes, those were halcyon days...
Ronald Reagan was a great Union Leader. President of the Screen Actors Guild.... is a union FYI.
America was at its best and Ronald Regan started the downfall to where we are today.
A Supreme Court with Scalia is a mockery.
I cooked dinner for Scalia several years ago. Chose to do the ethical thing and not spit into his food. Same thing with Clarence Thomas another time. Sometimes-- yesterday, for instance, after reading Scalia's comments-- I regret not going through with it.
When he goes I hope he takes the insipid, arrogant, scowling Alito with him. That man's behavior towards Justice Ginsburg is disgusting - secist asshole.
And of course Thomas is a disgrace and the worst "mind" to occupy the Court in 40 years.
Thank goodness for Kennedy being a "California Republican. Yes, still Republican (in name only), but 100 x more socially liberal than Republicans from the rest of the country.
Scalia eats at Chick-Fil-A
[quote]Ronald Reagan was a great Union Leader. President of the Screen Actors Guild.... is a union FYI.
And while president of SAG, Reagan made a deal with Lew Wasserman of MCA, a deal which benefited Reagan personally but screwed over the union.
Nothing Ronald Regan did was great.
OP is correct. Scalia is a truly horrible, awful, corrupt, sinister, evil human being.
He has zero redeeming qualities at all.
He is utterly vile and contemptible.
There should be some sort of "Angry-Old Man" filter on the court system.
If his beliefs were consistent I'd say he was just a close-minded old man, but his philosophy changes to support his wishes and desires on any given subject.
The world is full of angry old men (and women), but they shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the court system.
I'm with R53. Scalia does not even sound like he knows anything about law. He is so full of predjudices really emotional outbursts in words. I think he is repulsive- he is full of misogeny and homophobia and God knows what else
He would be astounding if it were not for Thomas who is truly the least qualified man to ever be a Supreme Court Justice. And his wife, his WIFE- is bat-shit-crazy. All those years ago when he was caught with his pants down while being confirmed- I think- was one of the most shamefull pieces of American history caught for posterity in those hearings. I never heard more lies and bullshit coming from men in one room my life. Anita Hill was like a beacon of truth in a world gone mad. Thomas's book, in my opinion, alone should disqualify him from being judge of a local lemonade contest. I thought his book read like the confessions of one of the most self loathing human creatures I have come across in public life.
Rachel is right. Scalia is a troll.
I posted this on the other Scalia thread but I'll say it again - Scalia is a perfect example of why the Supreme Court needs term limits. Having obvious partisans on the court who could be there for 40 or even 50 years is patently absurd.
The lifetime appointment rule was made in a time when people died in their 40's. They didn't know back then that living to be 90 would be common, and they didn't know what dementia was because nobody lived long enough to get it. The lifetime appointment rule is outdated and needs to be amended.
Scalia and Thomas are loathsome pieces of shit who should never have been allowed within a mile of the court. Yet another thing we can thank those assholes Reagan and Bush for.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
