One of the issues about which he'll be asked is abortion and let's face it, no one is for abortion. Plenty of us, though, are pro choice. There's a huge difference here. Having to make the decision to abort a child has to be agonizing--something that would never be forgotten. My belief is that judges, lawmakers, and politicians should stay out of our wombs just as they should not try and enter our bedrooms. Privacy please.
But abortion is only one of the reasons Alito shouldn't be confirmed. Examine this man's record. He always errs on the side of spying on the American public. While working for Ronald Reagan, Samuel Alito supported wiretapping without warrants. This alone should eliminate him from the Bench.
And there's so much more. The ultraconservative Alito has an appalling civil rights record. In fact, he was a member of Concerned Alumni of Princeton, an organization which expressed "hostility towards women and the notion of racial integration." I'd love to have a face to face with his wife-something secretive where she would reveal to me his true nature. You know, during girls night out. But he, probably wouldn't allow that. She may be like so many women who put their husband's powerful career goals above all else. In other words, Mrs. Samuel Alito may be an enabler. Wouldn't it be something, though, if I could get her talking and break down some of her barriers. I'll bet she's got some real good stories to tell.
And his continued alliance with corporations over the welfare of workers indicates that he is a George Bush clone and strengthens the belief that if Bush could somehow make it happen, he'd appoint himself to the Bench. He's already appointed himself King of planet Earth.
Let's face it. Samuel Alito is so tightly wrapped, he scrapes the scum off his teeth when he smiles.
