Justice Scalia’s time has come

The red white and blue of the American flag has spots of black today.

THE pillar of the court, the Honorable Antonin Scalia passed beyond this life suddenly today. It can easily be said of him: Primus inter pares, (first among equals) for such words are reserved for he who was a rare man among men.

His intellect was ummatched among his peers, and his memory will long live in the minds and hearts by they who have an affection for his ability to compromise with incidentals, but appreciate his resoluteness of character in things that are crystal clear.

The high court has suffered an immeasurable loss from which it will never recover, and from which the common man will be sadly affected. He will be missed greatly.

May he rest in peace.

 

Here are a few of my past thoughts regarding him.

  1. I’ve been with my dad all afternoon and evening as my step mom had been taken to the ER (she is ok now) and he and I watched the breaking news and continuing stories of his death—I remember when President Reagan appointed Antonin Scalia and I’ve been a great admirer ever since. A true advocate and champion of traditional families and the values of faith and family…. as well as the constitution and the building blocks of what made America, America…and with each passing of one these stalwart leaders who we’ve been blessed to have holding onto the reigns or our government, I grow more and more sad as those reigns are growing ever so slack.

    Thanks for writing this important tribute ColorStorm. Just Scalia was a heavy weight among heavies of intellectual thought and a champion defender of our founding documents and in keeping our legal system in deference to them. You’ll see a lot of ridiculous and disrespectful comments about him in the next few days (it’s already started) from the Left who are salivating at the chance to get one of their own on the Supreme Court so the shredding of our Constitution can happen at a quicker pace.

    RIP to Scalia and thoughts and prayers to his family. This is a horrible time for America.

    Read Scalia’s opinion regarding ssm, and try to find greater intellect among his peers.

    —In the majority’s telling, this story is black-and-white: Hate your neighbor or come along with us. The truth is more complicated. It is hard to admit that one’s political opponents are not monsters, especially in a struggle like this one, and the challenge in the end proves more than today’s Court can handle. Too bad. A reminder that disagreement over something so fundamental as marriage can still be politically legitimate would have been a fit task for what in earlier times was called the judicial temperament. We might have covered ourselves with honor today, by promising all sides of this debate that it was theirs to settle and that we would respect their resolution. We might have let the People decide.

    But that the majority will not do. Some will rejoice in today’s decision, and some will despair at it; that is the nature of a controversy that matters so much to so many. But the Court has cheated both sides, robbing the winners of an honest victory, and the losers of the peace that comes from a fair defeat. We owed both of them better. I dissent.—

      This comment is reason enough why your ‘other’ one has no context either.

      You think by ‘extending’ a narrative, it somehow gives your points credibility? Please.

      The newly deceased Scalia was far worthier than your petty gripes, and I am under no obligation to entertain your nonsense.

    Thanks for the post. After I heard the sad news, …. Well, I am still not ready to post anything.

    We will miss the Honorable Antonin Scalia. Instead of trying to create his own laws, he honored his oath of office. I wish we had more people in public office who did that.

    I suspect this year’s election will become part of Scalia’s legacy. Obama will try to replace him. Will the Republicans let him? Presidential candidates on the Democrat will promise to turn the court completely. Presidential candidates on the Republican side will promise a nominee like Scalia.

    In the end, the intensity of the election could rival that of the presidential election that preceded the American Civil War. And don’t we know what happened after that?

      When I first heard of his death, immediately I said ‘Nooooooooooooo’ out loud, for the very reasons CT you highlight here.

      And tkx for the emphasis on the Honorable…………….words which have true weight regarding him.

      So few really good men, (let me correct that, God knows where they are) he will be missed extremely. (as a sidebar, not too sure why ‘foul play’ was ruled out so quickly, even if there was not any)
