"To say you'd actually "like to see (them) fry"
is not a very good thing to say."

I'm sorry, I'll never made a joke again. (hangs head in shame)

"1) We ALWAYS capitalize specific references to the U.S. Supreme Court even if we don't say "U.S.""

Oh well. Life goes on, somehow. I'll always capitalize proper nouns from here on out, mike.

"The Court decides specific cases, giving reasons which can specifically impact other, similar cases in various states. But they do not make laws per se. They are Supreme in many senses but are co-equal with Congress and the administrative branch (which as far as I know, does not have to be capitalized, though President should be in specific references)."

I know that. The issue wasn't which branch is more powerful, it was whether Congress has the authority to override the Supreme Court.

"Congress cannot override the Supreme Court, as you say. He was wrong to say they can ignore a Supreme Court ruling, even though it's true. To do so in some cases would be ignorant, and they would be heading into shallow waters with a vulnerable ship. But certainly many in Congress ARE ignorant of various Supreme Court rulings. It is as easy as drinking beer at breakfast."

Even though it's true? It may be 'true,' Mike, but it's not constitutional and it's not legal. That's the issue.
