Judicial Activism of "Our" Supreme Court
I want to address in my own small way the goddamned stupid Court decision codifying corporations as equal to persons, and thus interfering with the rights of ordinary people to be particular, unique human beings. Now corporations have the same inalienable rights as people, according to the asshole majority-five Supremes, eradicating precedent and common sense and established law and even all previous understanding of the Constitution!
Fascism has become the new fifth "freedom."
What a crock of shit. Those treasonous bastards have no cogent justification and no right--no matter how narrowly "legal" nor broadly defined--to destroy our established freedoms, eradicate the middle class, fill the airwaves and the media with Right Wing propaganda, speed up the collapse of our Democracy, already underway thanks to Republicans and NAFTA and Wall Street "banksters" and Halliburton-Blackwater-whatever and... well, fill in the blanks. I was already bothered and sometimes ashamed to claim my rightful United States citizenship. Now I am ready to join the new, necessary Revolution that is suddenly brewing...
So listen up, government punks. I am out loud and in print advocating every imaginable action: Recall, Impeachment, Constitutional Amendments, a Consitutional Convention... and when those fail, national and international boycotts, a March on Washington, resistance in the streets, "black-catting" and eco-terrorism aimed at any buy-or-bribe corporation--yes, revenge where it should be directed, straight at those odd incorporal beings and their minions whether they be banks, Congress, or the Courts--and as the last resort, even violent Revolution. I have never advocated violence against any living thing before except spiders and snakes, but I am now willing to expand the definition of pests needing to be eradicated.
Yes, I am madder than Hell and over the edge and ready to go to jail if necessary. This Judicial Activism will not go unavenged.
By an ugly, unwelcome coincidence, my wife and I have been viewing DVDs of the television series called Jericho, now defunct. A stealth attack on the United States, nuclear bombs destroying many cities, the terrorists probably homegrown and intending to destroy the nation, a small town in Kansas trying to cope with radiation, refugees, frightened greedy citizens, a lack of medicine, food shortages, other supplies dwindling to nothing, neighboring towns suddenly become suspicious enemies, and much much more. Brilliant, mesmerizing, thought-provoking, ultimately terrifying.
Well, our five quislings, our five Right Wing stooges, our five new Timothy McVeighs, are revealed and clearly in sight now.
Yes, the post-decision, reimagined Book of Eli is suddenly doing box-office business.
Only believe... Retribution will come.
