Second thoughts? (SCOTUS)

Sandra Day OíConnor has recently mentioned second thoughts about the Supreme Courtís decision in Bush v Gore, which ushered in what will likely prove to be the most tainted era in the countryís history. One of the painfully lingering effects of that decision is the Roberts Court, which poisoned our political processes via Citizens United.

The same court has now added to the toxic mess by gutting the Voting Rights Act; in so doing, Roberts and his cronies have given blatant encouragement to Republican voter suppression efforts across the country. The Courtís absurd suggestion that the present Congress needs to ďfixĒ the legislation is nothing more than a flimsy attempt to mask the Roberts Courtís obvious blessing of the GOPís slimy and often racist tactics.

Any third thoughts, Justice OíConnor?

You say "I do" when I say you do, or something like that. . .

Now the House Republicans are maundering on about the sanctity of marriage. You'd think they had no knowledge of the pre-religion origins of marriage, or the well-documented Biblical history of polygamy with or without concubines, or the marriages between siblings that kept monarchies going for centuries, or the real estate transfers that have been part of marriage-sealed treaties between nations and had nothing whatever to do with any holy mandate to reproduce.

But to give all credit where credit is due, they are getting really quite entertaining when it comes to putting on a pious face while claiming that deity gifted them with the authority to impose strict religion-based "blessings" on those who foolishly cling to the idea of the separation of church and state.
