Tomorrow is the first Monday in October.
That means we have to get ready for more new laws from the most radical Supreme Court in a century. I remember well calling my buddy George when the Citizen’s United case was given a “do over” with a broad hint that the corporate plaintiffs should ask for more than they did in the first hearing.
Since when does any lawyer ask for too little in their pleadings? When even the loawyers know that the Constitution would be stretched to the breaking point if they asked for more, that’s when. But the Roberts court was in a mood to make sure human citizens have no rights at all compared to the non-human (and often non-American) corporate golems that five members of that court want to crown as permanent dictators over humanity.
For that reason, I’m going to begin my daily visit to Scotusblog, and put it onto the blogroll of links in the right hand column. Those five jurists can change our lives, forever, and they don’t have to worry about annoying elections or citizens when they decide to keep shredding our hundreds of years of Constitutional democracy to maximize profits for their owners.
It will be worth checking on them every day.
They can be impeached (hint, hint).
