Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Roberts Escapes to Malta

You know, if you don't want people theorizing on how the currents of corruption go in this world, (aka conspiracy theorizing) why feed the beast. According to the AP, Justice Roberts, after giving the country a convoluted, double-talk poop sandwich, will now relax in the Med on the island of Malta. To those who study the uncontrolled 10% media in this country, that immediately brings up images like this:

Via the AP 
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts joked that he'll spend some time on an "impregnable island fortress" now that the court has ended a session that featured him casting the decisive vote to uphold President Barack Obama's health care law.
Responding to a question about his summer break, Roberts said he planned to teach a class for two weeks in Malta, the Mediterranean island nation.
"Malta, as you know, is an impregnable island fortress. It seemed like a good idea," Roberts said, drawing laughter from about 300 judges, attorneys and others attending a four-day conference Friday at a posh southwestern Pennsylvania resort.
They're laughing at our country and everything it stands for.

Anyone else find think its kind of weird that he's going to Malta? How long was this planned? Are there real connections with the Knights of Malta?  I think it would make an interesting avenue to study. Unfortunately, I don't have time today...
