You have all probably seen these before. In the following clip, our Attorney General Eric Holder apparently considers the term "radical Islam" to be politically incorrect.
In this clip: David Horowitz at UCSD 5/10/2010, a student first invites Mr. Horowitz to a pro-Hitler rally - and then betrays her hope that all Jews be exterminated from the planet!
Have you ever read a Supreme Court ruling? I invite you to read this one: Graham v. Florida (right-click, Save As) in which Justice Thomas stands alone in condemning the court's use of international law (instead of or in addition to the Constitution) to support its majority ruling. The dumb-(bleeps) on the judiciary committees seem to think Clarence Thomas is the dumbest justice on the bench, while Antonin Scalia is real smart. I agree that Scalia is a great justice; but anybody who charges that Thomas is not up to par hasn't really read a Thomas opinion. I am convinced that people who accuse Thomas of being unqualified for the bench are serious racists.
To help with your reading, here's how the 8th Amendment reads:
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
