    Franco,
    You may be right, but for all our sakes, I hope you're wrong. I'm not so sure she's going to be pro-amnesty or pro-illegal immigration. Living in El Paso for several years taught me that some of the most stringent opponents to illegal immigration are the LEGAL hispanic immigrants, who worked for their positions and pay taxes, etc... Hopefully she'll be in that camp, but I don't pretend to know. I just have an unfounded hunch, that she will be far more conservative than anyone predicts once she dons that robe.

    Our country will survive. It may change, but it has changed before, and with EVERY change, people predicted doom and gloom, but we survive.

    I don't think there is any doubt that she would be for amnesty. Remember, she claims to be a wise Latina woman. She is not going to send anyone back home. There will also be waves of new ethnic immigration. In the 60's it was the Cubans, 70's the Vietnamesse, the 80's Iranians, 90's latins from all countries south of the boarder. Now we are going to have to support thousand of Haitins and Africans wanting to come here.

    We just can't continue to take people in and support them. It is crazy; economic and cultural suicide.

    So true. I hate the argument that "your anscestors immigrated"....well, yeah, and America had 20 million people then, millions of acres of undisturbed wilderness, and jobs for anyone willing to pick up a shovel. Ain't so today! We're full!!

    I can't see how anyone of any political persuasion can not be for secure borders, and limited, selected immigration policy. You're right, it's cultural suicide.

    Our government could afford to be wreckless back when we had unlimited resources. Today, our out-of-control immigration is a downward spiral.

    In fact, everything seems to be out-of-control. That's because we have become a sedated nation. Just look at what we accomplished from 1941-45. We, as a people today could never do anyhting near that remarkable. We've catered to the weakminded politicians for way too long and have let the media corrupt our culture.

    Probably like Goldilocks, wouldn't you imagine? This is to cold, this is to hot, this is just right. In reverse order of course, or somrhting like it. Have a cookie and a glass of warm milk and go to bed. It'll all be over in the morning.

And those memos he wrote for Reagan, as well as his employment questionnaire were obviously written by a person with no relationship to the man nominated. Obviously neither is even remotely close to the truth. Alito was a little more open, but not much. Overall, my impression is that Sotomayor has been a little more forthcoming than either Roberts or Alito, but the margin is slim. I'm not happy with that any more than I was happy with the approach followed in prior hearings. However, the only way she will not be nominated is if she says something concrete that provides more ammunition against her. She will try hard not to do that.
    Then unfortunately, I would have to deny any of those appointees on unethical behavior.

    Of course, I would like those in the Senate and Congress to uphold the same ethical standard that Dr. Tom Coburn upholds. He has to keep that high ethical standard or loose his medical license over ethical issues. Too bad the BAR associations don't enforce all of the ethical standards such as the "Deflection" or "Lying". I think Obama would be disbarred on the no more taxes statements during his campaign if they were to uphold ethical standards.

    From her answers so far I take it she is a strict constitutionalist and probably at least as conservative as Scalia, no need for worry here.

    She is an extreme lefty. nothing she has ever done, according to information provided and pubished reports, shows she will be naything other than an extreme lefty.
