I agree with all of you. WE (the GOP) cannot scream that we support the Constitution while defending our 2nd amendment rights, and then decry the document when it doesn't suit us. However, you are also correct that it states the president must appoint. The Senate has to consider. It does not have to approve of the nomination. If the residing president nominates an appropriate candidate for the Supreme Court, I hope the current Senate will approve them. That doesn't mean they have to approve someone that does not reflect the best interests of the United States.
nominating is the president's end of the deal, the senate can either consider or not his choice. if they choose not to review that is their prerogative, considering the senate may "OTHER MORE PRESSING MATTERS" period..it's called politics.
@Cid95 - you are both right. It says: "...shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint... ".
No, it says you are to nominate a replacement which the Senate must then approve (I think the actual term is "consent" to).
Having said that, whereas most of Stegelin's cartoons are stupid, this one has a point. The Senate must at least review any nominee that the President sends.

Well Mr. Tupper,Mr. Cruz's resume says a lot about this man but not as much as others. They all can dig up something to put in a resume & that's good as a lot of politicians have good things for which they were hired(elected) to do. However there is no mention of "MILITARY" service in the U.S.A.armed forces and a "world debating championship" is hard to swallow based on his most recent appearances.You see,when you run with the "BIG DOGS",you've got to get your butt "OFF" the front porch.
Trump is by far the lessor of two evils compared to the Ayatollah Cruz.
The good news is that even though the Ayatollah is now leading in the polls, he has very little chance of becoming President Ayatollah Cruz.
Why? All of the Democrats, and most of the Centrists, will vote for Centrist candidate Clinton rather than extremist Ayatollah Cruz.
Wouldn't surprise me if a lot of the Republicans also voted against him in the general election.
And, with Trump running as an independent, and further cutting into the Republican vote, almost no chance of this fool forcing his superstitions on us.
Pastor Ted "Chicken Little" Cruz. "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!" Using fear-mongering lies to scare constituents into voting for him. I want to puke every time I hear that "Mr Haney" voice come from this "foreigners" pie-hole. Would like to send him back to Canada but they don't want him because he would try to ruin their country instead. You are not welcome here or anywhere on the North American continent by anyone who cares for their fellow humans - ALL human beings, that is. Cruz cares, but only for his straight, evangelical brethren.
And the states with the most lax gun laws also have the highest death by gun, suicide, gun theft, and accidental shooting rates. Look it up Goo Guy With a Gun.
the more legal gun ownership the less crime!! look it up. the states and cities with the toughest gun law have the highest gun crime.
Zip it, John. Not gonna tell you again.
oh? has D.T. gotten $ from the NRA.? what proof?
Soon the "Santa Clause" lie will have to include a factory ship in the arctic ocean.
Especially DOOMED is when a CULTURE gets away from the principles of the golden rule (for everyone on earth), and starts replacing its societal aims of maintaining "excellent" citizenry with a dog eat dog reward system for material possessions.
Lesson 1. IF YOU OBEY EVERY ORDER GIVEN... SANTA WILL THEN GET YOU A TOY.
What a lesson to teach children!!
Lesson 2. SANTA CAN MAKE YOU HAPPIER THAN MOMMY AND DADDY or the SPIRIT OF FELLOWSHIP.
Shut up and watch the cartoon!
Then SANTA is on TV just like sesame street...
As a baby, Before you learned to pay close attention to what the TV was doing you noticed a squeaky high pitched voice coming from the light color box that sang songs that was different than all the rest you had ignored before as you sat in the room playing with blocks. It was the "red menace" ELMO!
Then one morning:
Look! SANTA brought you a physical "tickle me elmo" doll to prove that tv IS PHYSICALLY REAL and something you could touch as EVERYONE YOU LOVED WAS THERE SMILING ABOVE YOU STANDING WITH APPROVAL when he vibrated in your arms for the first time!
HOLY SHIT! The baby thinks...That TV is real! I better do what it says!
Before this moment the baby thought TV was just a music box that played songs with bright varying flashing colors that he/or she didn't really pay much attention to unless mommy/daddy sang songs from it with them.
PARENTS WAITED IN LINE TO HELP BRAINWASH THEIR CHILDREN WITH THIS TOY that ended up vibrating in all of our landfills shortly thereafter (like a collective dildo F****** the planet).
SANTA today IS JUST A STORY OF BETRAYEL told by the PARENTS that were taught THE LIE by a syndicated claymation paid for by GENERAL ELECTRIC and COCA COLA. They watched it when they were kids so now it is a family tradition! DURKA DURKA!
Planned out BY GREEDY EXECUTIVES WITH PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCHER EMPLOYEES Like a football GAME with one winner and a bunch of losers that is the SANTA CLAUS MONEY TRAIN value system. It continues to EAT THE PLANET/PEOPLE IN IT. You don't want to be the unpopular kid that doesn't have the latest sneakers in school do you? AS SEEN ON TV.
As Socrates would say that music is more important than gymnastics even though both should be taught, he would also say that Philosophers that work for think tank corporations trying to make a buck BASTARDIZE TRUE philosophy/science as they have biases. They are not fit to raise future generations of a state.
He would argue that while they are inevitable tools used by kings, they are not the philosophers he thinks would run a perfect society. They are profiteers/ employees serving the kings material aims first, and the only philosophy/science they produce with their efforts is done to promote wealth for their bosses NOT GOOD GOVERNMENT/citizenry.
So when a society pays FOOTBALL players MILLIONS of dollars and teachers slightly above the poverty level you know that we are in for a rough ride.
It is a government that allows this brainwashing campaign to indoctrinate children to be better future consumers for its products isn't it?
NOT good earth citizens necessarily unless it conveniently fits the marketing goals.
Our government should protect us from these corporations by preventing MARKETING TO CHILDREN, and we should place a higher value system in life promulgating philosophy and science as a culture NOT SHINY TOYS.
I guess, what else could it be? A story? A mix of old stories and new research? It isn't a fact sheet...It is an interpretation of a story..There are no FACTS about them as the origins and purpose of these monuments are left to posterity and archaeology. With that story I know just about as much as anyone else does as I was watching a documentary on it.
It is one of the popularized views on it as presented in the documentary below.
This is one of the many documentaries on the subject..
Nature is Civilizations insurance policy...Nature is the most SUPREME technology out there...Better than your ipad
If we don't preserve the natural world as it is and foster it's development it would be like cutting humanities legs off and telling it to run. <--its bound to fall and it has happened throughout our history leaving ancient technologies to fade out of memory
I just try to rant to make a point. It is poetry. Then why do they not retain the methods on which they built the monuments? Was it that their civilization collapsed or are they just forgetful?
I don't think they are the same people as back then, and it is definitely not the same kingdom it once was at this point. The same culture would still be able to make the monuments but their techniques were lost to humanity and themselves.
I think your the one ranting
There are still natives on Rapa Nui (Easter Island).
All it would take you is three minutes of research -- but why worry about facts when you can just fuckin' rant.
This Cartoon =TRUE GENIUS!!
Santa is the reason that the country is sinking...How ironic he is complaining....
The land simply cannot support his weight since he ate Jesus and stole his powers.
I know Santa sinks a lot of people into DEBT, and that is just some of the shadow he casts on the land before "x-mass". I wonder how much of the exhaust causing "global warming" comes from his elves slave labor factories making cheap plastic toys?
I wonder if Santa is aware that his original counterpart Krampus FINALLY had his own movie this holiday season that was actually far more accurate of this holiday tradition in regards to NATURE and its roots that stemmed from PAGANS living among seemingly UNLIMITED RESOURCES.
Lastly are Santa, global warming, and Krampus real? Some say they are just lies that parents tell their children, but I they still believe it enough to tell all of my "little brothers".
Oh well..... could part two be a drowning Easter Island head?
Easter Island anyone? I just read a story on how that island civilization collapsed due to human over development by devastating nature in order to make STONE monument IDOLS (they claimed were their ancestors) and farmland. Then the birds that shit on the ground to fertilize the soil went extinct leaving the people to horribly kill each other off over diminishing resources due to failing crops (since they killed off all of the natural world for organized plot farming and cities).... Now the stone monuments are all that is left of them...
Is this the ghost of Easter Island's past? Or the Ghost of Charleston's future?
I wonder where Santa was back then when they needed him most>?
Long ago and far away, the parents of Jesus were refugees.
