Supreme Court signals

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments about Arizona's SB 1070, and the MSM has reached consensus that the justice's lines of questioning suggest they are favorable to Arizona. I wonder whether this is true, especially when the questions quoted are cherry picked. There must be research on this, but some digging in Google Scholar didn't bring anything up. To what degree do their questions point to an ultimate decision?

Although this doesn't exactly answer your question- a few weeks ago during the hearings on health care, the Monkey Cage ran a post where the author argued that one can predict decisions by the extent to which justices question one side over the other.

Invisible Boycott Under Way - Many people are avoiding Arizona, Alabama, Georgia and other unwelcoming states, the same for Business. Nobody wants to be harassed by Ignorant and Brutal Policemen. Or by idiotic employees or bureaucracies ( public or private ) :


The Super Power of a Wallet :


People love their wallets and moneys and don't want to give them to scoundrels.

Let's assume that you are a tourist with some money to spend in traveling, vacation, merchandise, souvenirs.

Are you going to spend that money, your time and resources, in places where you are not welcome ??

Where you are tortured, harassed and humiliated ??

By ignorant bigots, racists, haters that everyday listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, or some other cretin and idiot repeating the same stupidity in every program ??

By people with inferiority complexes and psychological inadequacies, poor losers that have a revenge against life and want to turn you into a victim, to satisfy their sadism ??

Do you want "souvenirs" from states where people vote laws of hatred, discrimination, segregation and apartheid ??

Yes, Slavery was very popular and won many elections, Segregation was very popular and won many elections, the Ku Klux Klan was very popular and won many elections, Apartheid was very popular and won men elections.

The Nazis were very popular and won many elections and Hitler was elevated to Chancellor of the Reich by legal methods and the "Rule of Law".

But Henry David Thoureau, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King taught us to despise "The Rule of Law" when it is INJUSTICE, DOMINATION, HUMILIATION and HATRED.

I don't know what the U. S. Supreme Court is going to decide on SB 1070, but if this court wants to legislate from the bench overpowering President Obama and Congress then the new "Four Horsemen" will be losers at the end and will be defeated in elections.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt could finally defeat the "Four Horsemen" of "Social Darwinism" ( his own words ) that plagued his presidency. He finally changed the U. S. Supreme Court.

President Barack Obama will do the same if the new "Four Horsemen" want to be so unwise.
