      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I defenitly take issue with a few of those questions though. The duty of the Supreme Court is in a sense to oversee Congress and the President. In fact, many political science scholars might say it is the primary duty of the Supreme Court. Although theoretically oveseeing congress and the president is not the Supreme Court's mandate, it is what happens in a de facto sense.

This test sucks thumbs_down.gif

 

You are thinking of the Judicial branch as a whole. Have you ever read a supreme court ruling? You just have the old rudimentary checks and balances shit stuck in your head.

 

In what way does the supreme court oversee congress and the president, be it de jure or de facto.

 

What's the difference? They can declare federal laws passed by congress to be unconstitutional. So by interpreting and explaining laws they are de facto overseeing congress and the Executive Branch too because the President is involved in making and passing laws. Perhaps the best example of the Sup. Court overseeing the executive branch might be how they interpreted law to decide who became president after the last election. If you remember it came down to a Supreme Court ruling that noone was denied their constitution right to participate in electing the president during the election, therefore actively mandating Bush to be the new Executive in Cheif.

You know, I'm not model but I do pay a lot of taxes. btw, on this page alone I see three quotes you dudes and or dudettes are using for tag lines that are misquoted or misattributed. You should get those right don't ya think? Check your sources not just your alcohol and altitude addled memories... smileysex5.gifsmileysex5.gif

Dr Unamazing,

 

I propose that a score of 3/12 renders your political views and opinions (past, present, and future) marginal. moon.gif

It's only a "trick" question if you don't know the right answer!
