The Fascist Five Injustices of SCROTUS, Republican Constitutional VD, have been on a tear of late, shredding the Constitution at every opportunity. However, one of them just hit a new low. Antonin Scalia, a Ronald Reagan appointee, has publicly called for the overthrow of the government of the US, if Republicans don’t get their way.

Antonin Scalia's behaviour has led me to comment earlier that it has al the signs of dementia. First in jest, but the last time he had said something outrageous at the beginning of the week he acted as if nothing happened a few days later, I wasn't jesting any more. Now it turns out that Scalia again gave some 'ironic' commentary on inflamatory rhetoric only a few days later: “It sometimes annoys me when somebody has made outrageous statements that are hateful,” "[ ] I’ll defend your right to use it, but I will not defend the appropriateness of the manner in which you are using it.” This is not 'ironic', this is dementia talking. Scalia is rapidly losing sight of the things he has said only days before.
Democrats should get him to retire on the basis of failing mental health or impeach him on those grounds, but their Obamaballs aren't big enough. Yet, I hope.

Oh yeah, Der Obermeisterfuhrer Scalia would like nothing more than for Americans to revolt....so they (BaggerFascist para-militarized police state) can roll out all their new toys for riot containment and for good ole kill first, ask questions later...maybe. Scalia has committed sedition but, like you say Cat Man, absolutely NOTHING will come of it. Just when I thought I couldn't get any more depressed.....SCROTUM-Man Scalia just has to push me that much closer to the edge......sigh.
I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sick of these people.

Scalia is right up there - or is it right down there - with Monsanto in my book. He's arrogant, he's obnoxious, and he's hardly worthy of his position. Like Terrie, I am soooooooooooooooo sick of these people, too -
The First Amendment, states we can talk about sedition and even treason, we can talk about many things. The question in my mind is whether or not a person in a position of power can support and encourage sedition? I would say that Scalia is as a member of the Supreme Court is directly responsible for his actions and encouraging others to act out. This is not the first time Scalia has said stupid things that have encourage stupid actions. Does he even realize how dangerous his mouth could be?
Dementia is an easy out for Scalia. He's a nasty man that should be removed from his position on the Supreme Court. I will not hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

Losing his mind while the rest of us watch, it's all we can do. He'll stay put and nothing will happen to the waste of air he breathes. These people should have term limits but that's not going to happen either.

"The remark, first reported by the Knoxville News Sentinel, has become a common rhetorical flourish for conservatives nationwide during the Obama presidency."
We do have the First Amendment, yes, but for an official of our government to actively suggest a revolution? Well, I don't much care what the House won't do, that comment should be heard far and wide, on every network and in every newspapers, speeches on the floor of both Houses, perhaps the pressure will even build enough for this creep to do what many others in high office who have far lesser errors have done; resign.

Boy, Kit B, you are right on the money. Talking about is not the same as advocating or proselytizing. We run into this all the time with the First Amendment with religion. Now we are running into it with sedition and treason. Of course we can talk about it. But we cannot preach it. It seema to me his remark is right on the border, just a fraction over into preaching (the "perhaps" is of course the weasel word).
The size of the Court is fixed by Congress. IF we could get a majority in both houses perhaps we could consider raising the number to eleven. Impeachment would work too but the bar there is pretty high. Changing the size of the court might be easier. But whichever, we first need a strong majority in both houses of Congress.

Perhaps we need a constitutional amendment for backup impeachment process options just like we have several layers of succession should a President cease to hold office (which came in handy under the Nixon administration).

He came as close to treason with this remark as he could without being put in jail. If one of us said the same thing we would probably be visited by Homeland Security. He should be impeached. It is time to end the life time appointments of Supreme Court judges.

I agree, wholeheartedly, that Scally should be "retired" for health reasons. He does flirt with the idea of being the "father" of a new revolution.
That said, I think he is just a dingy as a bat! I don't think his elevator goes all the way to the top. He is that dumb. He shouldn't be allowed to bring this country to ruin just for kicks! And having some kind of dementia should be a good "reason" to resign, oh, uh, rather, um RETIRE!! There should be a LAW against Dementia Patients making LAW IN THE US!!

Talking about sedition and treason is
one thing, actively encouraging either,
especially as an agent of the goverment,
would, in my not so humble opinion be
grounds for arrest.

Beyond the innocuous advances throughout civilization, western, how many decades ago was it when things got better for us last ? :)
For 65 years it has gotten progressively worse. That's just my time line..:) Not going to get better until it gets a lot worse and the sheep become lions again..:) If ever under the load of crap they have entrenched in their heads and hearts :0)
Terminal conformists. I can't spell naieve :) Or..:) spell checker went to public school :0)

We need to be able require a person in office in any branch of the government who is suspected of dementia to be tested and if found senile to have that person removed from office. A yearly test for dementia would be appropriate. Look at the damage Reagan did during his years of dementia.
