    Justice Roberts votes for warrantless searches

    Justice Alito did not vote on the case, which involved a wife calling the police on her husband and allowing them inside even though the husband did not consent.

    Roberts sided with Scalia and Thomas in his dissent from a 5-vote majority.

    Roberts and his creepy con colleagues voted for more government intrusion and less personal freedom.

    This should come as no surprise to anyone--the attempted erosion of liberty and enlargement of government power under conservative policy. Those of you who voted for Bush--this is what you voted for, whether you realized it at the time or not.

    Luckily, the other justices were clear--If police want to come into your home and you refuse them, they have to come back with a warrant. Your home is still your castle, no thanks to Roberts.

    Spin it how you like, the upshot is that personal freedom from government intrusion has been upheld--for now. The police have not been granted expanded power over our lives--for now.

    I expect the more obtuse or deceptive among us will respond that the husband possessed cocaine---even though that has nothing to do with the issue before the Court. Don't bother.

    You're okay with the majority view that a women's right is subordinate to those of her husband's?

    Not really, but Orophilus thinks it is way cool.

    Good job, you portrayed the case in front of the court exactly as it was.

    I'd rather you call me names than intentionally distort issues.

    You could have made it a little more scary if you would have given Justice Roberts his full credits: He's CHIEF Justice Roberts.

    Do Justices have a probation period where they can get fired before their probation period is over? Would CHIEF Justice Roberts be fearing that? Or is he just a NEOCON CHIEF?

    I heard a quote from Roberts today on NPR, it went something like this.
