    So, you think an issue with Trump's statements of last week are a rut, while you're grinding an 8-year-old axe.

    The judge is a member of a Latino lawyer's association that has "La Raza" as part of the organizations name; La Raza Lawyers of San Diego

    However if you go to the webpage of that organization, http://larazalawyers.net/, one of the 17 links on the Links and Affiliates page is to the National Council of La Raza.

    The Latino Bar Association of California.

    I understand "La Raza" is now a scare thing like "Alinsky" or "ACORN" so anything is enough to be everything for some but no, he is not a member of La Raza.

    Trump is playing the part of a White man beset by a vengeful minority. As a legal strategy, it's pretty foolish. As a political strategy, it's all too obvious.

Should I be denied a judgeship for which I am qualified because zippy wouldn't approve of my organizational memberships? Do you REALLY want to align yourself with that faction? Remember, they're the ones who think The Hon. Vaughn Walker shouldn't have been allowed to hear the challenge to Prop, 8.
    What the fuck are you talking about? It happens every day. If a candidate for a judge has impeccable credentials and yet is a member of the NRA, you can jut scratch him off of Obama's list.

    People are judged by the company they keep.

    And it doesn't matter.
    It's that freedom of association thing.

    If he were rolling in a case directly affecting an organization that he belongs to, it would be a conflict of interest.

    But he has no direct connection here. Trump University is not against La Raza lawyers, or even La Raza. So unless sine bias can be demonstrated in his decisions, this is fine.

    Yeah, I know. I should probably not even pretend it is a legitimate argument by engaging.

    Kind of entertaining seeing Centerists continuously needing to argue for and defend the left.

    Has this judge made any comments to his views on open borders?
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.
