Correct.

Sigh, I guess I'll have to spell it out for you. Right in the quote you made, it says "...who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate". The Senate is in the legislative branch - so there are your balance of powers at work.

Furthermore, each President typically appoints only 2 or 3 justices out of the 9. That's not exactly "control of the Supreme Court". Plus, even that is just appointments. So if they were controlling anything, it would only be the appointments, NOT what the entire Supreme Court actually DOES.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Do you have some sort of conspiracy theory you're trying to sell?

Because your view is childish.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I honestly don't care whether he failed American Government 101. His ignorance is not my problem. But I'm still waiting to hear whether the principles of democracy mean that same-sex marriage is now legal nationwide because a majority of Americans support it. Let's see if he really believes in democracy when it's an argument in support of something he DOESN'T like.

The majority of us, based on your negative reputation, have decided that OMG you're dumb. Based on your rules, we're right. Suck it up.

If Jesus died for our sins, why is there still sin? If man was created from dust, why is there still dust? If Americans came from Europe, why are there still Europeans?

You've got nothing. That's what I thought. Drinking Beverage

If you mean passing a law, the President, Supreme Court. It's checks and balances, the one thing they taught you in grade school that you skipped out on.

Read up on some civics while you're at it.

Things Dimaniac has demonstrated on TTA that he does not understand:
  • Civics
  • Civility
  • Logic
  • Ethics/morality
  • Atheism
  • The Bible
  • Set theory
  • Statistics
  • History

I'm sure the list is longer, but I'm not going to start dredging through his thread-shittery to find more.

one being able to appoint by the other doesn't mean one is controlled by the other

also the president isn't the only one involved, the senate is involved to
