Those glorious days of the “Old America”
Days when you could vote because you had the right.
When everyone was encouraged to use their voice. Encouraged to vote.
A more gentile time when we were all determined that we would never let racism destroy the progress we had made.
When you didn’t have to prove you had money to vote. When you didn’t need to prove you were white to vote. “Old America”
America before Roberts and Scalia and Kennedy and the rest of the racist Bastards
Shocked. That’s what I am. Shocked. Fifty years of what was supposed to be progress and so much already done away with like so much old toilet paper.
How do these people get the power? We let them have it.
So when we failed to do what we could to stop the last self-righteous prick bastard Right-Winger from getting in…
I am personally amazed that everyone is taking this so quietly.
I am sure that nobody has forced the Court to change its decision in the past.
This decision is wrong not only because of its effect but because this is a case of the Court; overruling Congress and the people because they don’t think the law is needed anymore.
Who the Fuck asked you?
Who gives a good damn whether you think the law is needed. Your job is to assure compliance with the Constitution; not second guess the elected representatives of the people.
This has gone far beyond a normal action taken by the legitimate Supreme Court. This is the Court overstepping its authority.
Forget Congress. Just ask Antonin what he wishes us to do. Forget The President. If the Court can bully their way through the Congress they can force the President to do as they wish as well in the end.
Not long ago someone said to me that we will be living in a Fascist Nation within the next ten years. I said I thought it would take longer.
I was wrong.
