Judge Roberts

President Bush's SCOTUS nominee, to the surprise of everyone, was Judge John Robert Jr. Firstly; let me say that I was heartened to see that the President avoided Affirmative Action type politics, by nominating a woman just to please the Democrats. This would have done nothing but create a designated 'women's seat' in the Court & belittled every woman appointed to it.

Judge Roberts, who worked under Bush 41 as well as Pres. Reagan, is widely acknowledged as being a fine litigator with excellent interpersonal skills & temperment. He also argued strongly against Roe v Wade before the Supreme Court. However, a few of the clients he chose to represent do strike one as odd. Among them are:
Hawaii’s Democratic attorney general and governor arguing in favor of a race-conscious program to benefit native Hawaiians, and a Nevada regulatory agency seeking to limit property development around Lake Tahoe.

On the other had, he has proven himself to be immune from the temptation to abuse his position & legislate from the bench. One example being the case of the girl arrested for eating french fries at a Washington DC subway station. In his ruling that the incident did not violate the Fifth Amendment, he said:
"The district court described the policies that led to her arrest as 'foolish,' and indeed the policies were changed after those responsible endured the sort of publicity reserved for adults who make young girls cry...The question before us, however, is not whether these policies were a bad idea, but whether they violated the ... Constitution."

As he is more a Rehnquist, than a Thomas or Scalia, his nomination would not be as fraught with controversy as would that of a more conservative judge. I must confess that I was personally hoping for Judge Janice Brown. However, based on what I have read about him so far, Judge Roberts appears to be a fine pick.

I agree - I was hoping for Judge Janice Brown, too.

Actually, in one respect it does not matter who Bush picks. Nominee (fill in the blank) will be smeared under any-and-all circumstances. and the rest of the tinfoil-cap crowd feed on raw human flesh these days, and they are the ones pulling the DNC/MSM's strings.
We'll just have to cross our fingers and hope.
Though I'm not an expert on judges, he looks a good choice. He is well respected, and apparently an excellent lawyer. The question is whether he really has conservative leanings. Time will tell. I would give him a chance as he appears to be a good candidate. I know Ann Coulter has said otherwise, but I think maybe Bush is doing something that actually benefits America.
Your subconscious mind is a powerful force. It can be an un-defeatable ally or a dangerous foe! It is a powerful force of nature that can be harnessed and made to work for us or it can be a wild beast that runs riot with our lives.
How powerful is 'powerful'?
Take the first Atomic Bomb - it could lay waste to an entire city in seconds. Or the gravitational pull of the Sun which stops our tiny planet from hurtling into space. Imagine the power of a black hole - that region of spacetime from which nothing can escape not even light travelling at 186 thousand miles a second. The Universe is full of powerful forces. Yet, all these wondrous things pale into insignificance when compared to the power of the subconscious mind.
The subconscious part of your mind is that part which regulates your heartbeat, lungs, digestive system and everything else in your body. It directs the inner workings of your body and such things as (what biologists call) 'machines' - tiny living cells that are composed of motors, drive-shafts and propellers - seriously!!! There is mounting evidence that the cells in our bodies have memory and that our very DNA is coded with memories of our ancestors. As well as having full control of all these functions and more your subconscious also retains all the thoughts, experiences and emotions you have ever felt. It regulates the most complicated mechanism in the unknown Universe - your body - and it can calculate the trajectory of multiple moving objects while supplying you with the words necessary to debate an issue while controlling a complex task of activities such as driving a car!
These tasks alone show how powerful the subconscious mind is. But it is much more powerful than that!
The truth is: No-one knows the limits of the subconscious mind's power!
Tell yourself that you will wake up at 6 a.m. and chances are you will awake. Go to a crowed party and through a mass of voices you will hear someone at the other side of the room mention your name! Set a problem aside and miraculously, out of nowhere, the answer comes while you are involved in another task. It recreates situations in your life that correspond to your beliefs. Time and time again you find yourself in the same situations, with similar partners, in almost identical jobs. Like a wheel your subconscious mind creates situations that bring your life back to the same spot.
Likewise it can totally transform your life - even overnight! It can bring you new situations, life experiences, luxuries and even people.
However, it is like a na�ve child or a better analogy is that of a computer. It believes everything that you tell it. Your conscious mind is the gatekeeper. Anything you think with complete faith is immediately past to the subconscious mind - which it then takes as literal fact. There will be no arguments because it has no discriminating capabilities.
Although your subconscious mind is more powerful than you can possibly imagine it is a mere servant. It is at your disposal. YOU are in charge. It acts just like a computer and like every computer it needs software to run. So if you do not program it then someone else will! You are constantly being bombarded with software programs for the mind every minute of everyday. Buy this product and you will look slim, drive this car and you will seem sexy, drink this potion and you will feel more vibrant about life. You are told what to buy and when to buy it, when you are too young to do a thing and when you are too old. You are told what is possible and what is not. Snap out of it!
Take back your control over mind and body. You were born with the most powerful computer system known to man - a bio-computer that regulates a sophisticated, highly flexible, changeable, self repairing vehicle. You are amazing, a true miracle. If you bought a new top of the range diesel Mercedes would you let Joe or Sue down the road fill it up with petrol?
Begin to think for yourself. Who told you that you could not achieve your dreams? Do you believe it? Who told you that you were too fat, too skinny, too stupid, too smart, too young or too old?
Does it matter?
No! Because you are and always have been in total control. Change your thinking and you will change your subconscious beliefs. Change your subconscious beliefs and you will change your life.
