    Supreme Court Justice takes the following oath:

    According to Title 28, Chapter I, Part 453 of the United States Code, each Supreme Court Justice takes the following oath:

    "I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."

    For example, the New York Times reported that in 2001, at the annual Judge Mario G. Olmos Law and Cultural Diversity Lecture, Sotomayor had this to say:

    “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.

    Her comment was quite the "inside joke", wasn't it?

    This woman should not be allowed anywhere NEAR the SCOTUS.

    Let's face it, most elected or appointed officials end up doing things these days that make a mockery out of their oaths. They simply mouth the words in order to obtain power. Most of them don't really mean what they say, oath or otherwise. They state what is politically correct to apease us while their alligence lies with corporate America. We need a bunch of fresh blood throughout the courts and in Congress.

    I agree Rockfish. On all counts.

    The problem is finding people to fill these positions who do not have ulterior motives going in or don't become just as corrupted after awhile of being there.

    Money and power are very tempting things.
