. . . which translates into: "I am unable to rationally meet the evidence and analysis, and have nothing of substance to offer by way of advancing this public dialog. Therefore, I will resort to insults."

For years and years, in the U.S. and abroad, activists of many persuasions have long rejected any "following orders" or "going with the flow" mentality. Again, where were the Tea Partiers all that time?

Again, you have avoided answering the seminal question.

Every decision to do or not do something necessarily entails considerations of "what" is being done and to whom.

As for the rest of your comment, to anyone not blinded by subordination to conventional wisdom, patriotic pieties, party loyalities, the mainstream media (all the networks, including FOX, talk radio, etc.) and the like, every moment, going back decades, is an "enough is enough" moment. The commitment to fairness, justice, and liberty is ongoing -- regardless of what political party is in power.

. . . because the issue is not whether MY decision (or lack of decision) to protest the abuses of government is suspect.

Rather, the issue is why the TEA PARTIERS did NOTHING for years while the government -- YOUR government, MY government -- engaged in abuses that make the health care legislation look like a picnic by comparison (say what you will about health care legislation or cap™ it likely will not constitute any affirmative effort to engage in conduct that has produced over a million refugees and literally trillions of dollars in destruction). You have yet to address or explain how and why those who claim to be members of the Tea Party never so much as squeaked a peep during the years and years prior to the Obama Administration.

Putting aside the fact that the above comment does not address my point, you will have to be more specific. You simply pose an abstract, rhetorical question that is void of any factual basis. Is there a particular judicial decision you have in mind? Need I remind you that there are 94 federal district courts in the U.S. (not to mention the federal claims courts, maritime courts and other courts of special jurisdiction), 13 U.S. federal court of appeals and a U.S. Supreme Court; there are also hundreds of state municipal, trial, appellate and supreme courts.

Each of those courts issue dozens (sometimes hundreds) of decisions each year. These decisions address civil as well as criminal matters, and focus on tort law, contract law, subject matter and personal jurisdiction issues, insurance, trademark, patent, product liability, personal injury, professional malpractice, bankruptcy, child custody, real estate transactions, indemnification rights, trusts and estates, probate, corporate law, securities law, banking law, administrative agency law, and so on.

If you wish to propose that we draw some general conclusions about all the judicial decisions issues by all the courts in this country, then you will have to present evidence and an argument.
