The Federal government and the Koched-Up Lipton Brigade who finished trashing it after BushCo. have officially become the shite-iest bosses in the world. And not just the Free World.
Two full branches are in need of a tree surgeon at this point, and what is even an Executive of Obama's calibre to do with both chambers crawling with petulant rich kids and antique lifer 'Justices'?? Beleagured man was probably trying to recruit the People's Pope for that highest bench just to shame Scalia & Gang.
I confess that I, staunch progressive since the womb, wept when Olympia Snowe announced her exit from Stage Crazy In Washington D.C. early on. Partly because she was one of the last New England RINO's in existence we could count on to 'swing vote' key legislation.
Primarily because we were at the beginning of a Domino Fall Fail of "will not seek reelection' announcements that would include good liberals as well. Have a look at the roster of who has already said ¡Hasta La Vista Suckers! here.
Citizens United was a cancerous, bloated pestilence unleashed by That Manly Bench. SCOTUS used McCutcheon to put every office that can be leveraged with the USD for sale this week, which means we can now add usury and an extra level of corrosive conservative corruption thinly (Fredericks of Hollywood thinly) disguised as more transparent handling of campaign contributions by The People.
To roughly paraphrase NY state's Senator Chuck Schumer in response to that Robed Regressive Ridiculousness: "It's another step on the ruination of our political system ... until we are back to the days of the robber barons …"
It only took from 1776 until this week to return to a nation ruled by the monied class.
So what are we liberals going to do about it?? Turn the Sluther Mucking Titanic around and get out every last Vote possible. Worse may be on the way, according to Jeffrey Toobin of The New Yorker.
We fight back. The Hobby Lobby Green family may own nigh on every for-sale Biblical artifact available, Shelly Moneybags will buy all elections that take cash or 'credit' and the GOPissants may well have to run Jeb as their Savior.
We fight back. Regressives may have Texas down to six [as of this morning] functioning Women's Healthcare clinics, the Tea Party has crawled up our collective uterus and the War is young.
They won't give up … until Roe is long gone, the country is Fenced In, every gay American is single, and back in the closet and girls are back to doing floors on their hands and knees in all trimesters.
SCOTUS approved purchasing their employees is just this week's con Cristal news. Fight Back.
