What Would Scalia Say…

What Would Scalia Say… By: Diana Devine Baum “Should Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee Get a Hearing?” Diana Devine Baum, Regent University School of Law, Candidate for Juris Doctorate 2018 If you wish an article written about your business call Scott at 252-312-2302 Anyone who is familiar with Justice Scalia’s legacy of the Original Textualism interpretation of the Constitution should be able to guess that his answer would be “Yes”. Textualism means that whenever courts interpret a legal document (such as the Constitution) judges should consider first and foremost the precise words of the document. 1 Originalism (aka original public meaning) also asks, what did the given constitutional provision mean to the American people when they ratified the provision and made it “the supreme law of the land”. In this case, the text of Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution states that the President “shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint … judges of the Supreme Court….” The use of the word “shall” makes it an affirmative duty for the President to nominate Scalia’s replacement. However, the precise words of the document do not say that congress “shall”. Scalia would not end his analysis with the text, but would move on to the original public meaning of the provision at the time of ratification. By doing so he would likely conclude that the use of the word “shall” within Article II, Section 2 (provided above) suggests Congress also has an affirmative duty to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice. With that said, Congress may withhold consent. But, there is no textual or principled basis for denying hearings altogether. 2 Personally, I agree that we owe so much to Justice Scalia and that taking time to fully weigh who is going to take the place of one of the most influential and conservative Justices in history is justified. However, whether or not Scalia would agree is a theoretical no. Try a little ® TENDERNESS The Family Gourmet Buffet 2 (5 oz.) Filet Mignons 2 (5 oz.) Top Sirloins 2 (4 oz.)

Carolina Moon Theater Group Have that acting “bug?” Come audition for our next play! Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. The action in Southern comedy takes place in SPA-DEE- DAH!, the abandoned church-turned-day-spa where they gather every Friday. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they’re going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get on with it now! The comic tension mounts when a sexy ex-boyfriend shows up unexpectedly, a marriage proposal comes from an unlikely suitor, and an archrival vows to stop at nothing to steal the spa away. By the time the women rally together to overcome these obstacles and launch their new, improved lives, you’ve got a side-splitting, joyful comedy that will make you laugh out loud and shout “Hallelujah!” Space Sponsored By: Play to be performed on October 14, 15 & 16, 2016 To learn more call Tom Loughlin at 816-914-8243 We are casting the following characters: 6 females and 2 males in their 60’s or 70’s.
