Are Judges Too Big For Their Britches?

I as a citizen of America am on the fence when it comes to Obama Care, though for reasons other than the mandate that everyone must participate in the program.  I have to have insurance, have to get tags to drive a car.  I must participate in Social Security even though we all know it is a scam, mainly because the Federal Government has stolen and mismanaged the money given to it by 79 million baby boomers.  Ditto on paying into the Medicare/Medicaid fund...sorry, not supportive of any system that sees my tax dollars giving emergency room service to illegal aliens, and young adults who would rather spend their hard earned dollars out drinking than having health insurance. 

What concerns me more than Obama Care and its mandate is our Federal Judges who have lost their ability to be bipartisan judges of fact, have lost their ability to DO THEIR JOBS, and quite frankly have gotten far too full of themselves, the latest example the three (Republican) judges who demanded that the Department of Justice provide them a three page, single type written response to their question.
A three-judge panel for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ordered the Justice Department to explain by Thursday whether the administration believes judges have the power to strike down a federal law.  
My first reaction on reading the FOX News story on this was a quick, "WTF" followed by a single fingered salute to the three judge panel.  That quickly got me upset at the entire United States Supreme Court, who in my opinion, needs to find themselves collectively neutered.  Want a perfect example...look at our 2012 Presidential Election Cycle, and all the corporate money buying all the candidates in the race...thank you Supreme Court for ruling that CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE TOO!  How about their decision on imminent domain?  Care to discuss the 2000 election when they gave the White House to George Bush?

I do not care that Judges Samuel A. Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas are world class arrogant assholes, and have a special dislike of my own for Sonia Sotomayer who ought to be impeached on general principles...what I do care about, is the fact that they as a collective court see themselves as God like, ruling over the rest of us, act in a condescending manner to the rest of us, including the President of the United States of America...the Department of Justice should have told the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to stick their order where the sun does not shine.  Who cares that they did not like the President's statements...can we say FREEDOM OF SPEECH?  Last I looked, we are all entitled to express our opinions no matter how distasteful they may be, and that is what the President did, and that does not give the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals the right to demand that the Department of Justice provide them with a three page, single type written reply to their question.

Here is a CLUE, a means by which to put some of these RADICAL JUDGES in their places...use the constitutional power given to congress to CLIP THEIR WINGS.  Bring the whole lot of them up on charges in the Senate with the intentions of moving toward having the House of Representatives Impeach them.  Sure, might not be successful in removing any of them from office, but dragging them through a VERY PUBLIC TRAIL would put them in their place, knock them down a few pegs in the ego department.
