He and his fellow racist, bigoted, partisan, Ayn-Rand-worshiping , Teabagging “Republican” Supreme Court “Justices” pretty obviously want to disenfranchise every person of color who does not sit on the high court. Yesterday’s “f*** those poor black voters” ruling is just the latest example:

“Tens of thousands of North Carolina voters, especially African-American voters, have relied on same-day registration, as well as the counting of ballots that were cast out of precinct, for years,” Barber said in a statement. “As the appeals court correctly concluded, eliminating these measures will cause irreparable harm of denying citizens their right to vote in the November election – a right that, once lost, can never be restored.”

Despite the Supreme Court ruling, Barber said, the NAACP and other organizations plan to make “sure that, county by county, as many votes as possible are counted despite the barriers posed by the Supreme Court’s ruling.”

Prior rulings in Ohio and indeed, nationwide, demonstrate that the Roberts Court has a 100% racist agenda when it comes to voting. The “conservatives” ALWAYS vote to f*** people of color. Even when they themselves are POC, people like Clarence “Uncle” Thomas do all they can to oppress and abuse others.

And the most disgusting aspect of this loathesome man, beyond his massive hypocrisy, is his near-sociopathic greed, lust, and lack of concern about anyone but himself. He has been a huge beneficiary of Affirmative Action, but wants no one else to get those benefits. He has profited greatly by Civil Rights laws, but wishes to deny those benefits  to anyone else.

The other four “Justices” who routinely vote to turn non-white American citizens back into slaves (Alito, Scalia, Roberts, and Kennedy) are, of course, white, so their racism, classism, and discriminatory actions are to be expected from scum such as they. But for a black man to oppress other black people, and to do so with such consistency and enthusiasm, is truly inhuman and borders on the demonic.

And what is the quickest and best way to turn people of color back into second-class citizens? Why, taking away their access to the polls, of course. Clarence “Uncle” Thomas knows this, and that is why he rules as he does. Take away the voting rights from black citizens, and they won’t truly be citizens any longer.

People of color need to vote. They need to vote for politicians who don’t hate minorities, so that future Supreme Court jurists are worthy of being called “Justices”. Without the scarequotes.

Because “Republicans” put that bastard Uncle Thomas on the court. Given the chance, they’ll put more black-hating motherf***ers up there with him. Vote, while you still can. Against the racist Republican  motherf***ers like “Uncle” Thomas.

Ohio’s stinking “Republican” Secretary of State John (“Yes, the kind that pays for whores”) Husted has finally hit the US Supreme Court jackpot: the five partisan Wingnuts thereon are helping “Republicans” steal yet another election:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The nation’s highest court on Monday granted an emergency plea from state officials to block a lower court’s order expanding statewide early voting days and times.

The court issued its order without an opinion or explanation, noting the court’s liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Kagan would not have granted the stay. Chief Justice John G. Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia and Anthony M. Kennedy voted to grant the stay.

Ohio’s disastrous 2004 election shows the state cannot operate an election on only one day, argued attorneys for the ACLU. In papers filed in Supreme Court on Saturday, they said early voting, including Sunday “Souls to the Polls” events, have become woven into the fabric of Ohio’s democratic process.

“That election [in 2004] resulted in waiting times to vote that stretched into the day after Election Day and failed to provide meaningful access to the ballot for tens of thousands of Ohio voters,” they wrote. “Ohio thus comes to court with dirty hands.”

And the Repubs amongst the Supremes, who illegally installed an illegitimate occupant (Bush the Lesser) to the office of the Presidency, have even dirtier hands. Hands they now proudly display, filth and bloodstains plain to see.

All pretense of legitimacy is now gone, and the Roberts Court has fully revealed its true intent: the permanent takeover of our government by their ideological “soul” mates and paymasters in the GOP. Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

The Teapubbies announced their intention to do so back in the 1970’s. In the Powell Memo, they laid out their plan to seize control of the media, the economy, and the government. Click the link and read it.

The only way, and by that I mean the ONLY F***ING WAY to save this country from the tender mercies of the Rightish Inquisition is for the rest of us to VOTE in this election. Vote against every Elephant on every ballot in every race. Take back the House and keep the Senate.

That way, some actual jurists can be placed on the Supreme Court, replacing the corrupt partisan Repub motherf***ers who just f***ed tens of thousands of us out of our right to vote.

Vote, vote, vote. Take all your friends and family too. Vote while you still can.

As noted last week, the same hate speech that helped get President Kennedy killed is being used against President Obama. Of course, with the manifold new technologies that have appeared over the past fifty years, there is even more hate speech and incitement to be found these days, so we can say that the Prexy is in a whole helluva lot of danger. Coincidentally, he’s our nation’s first Black Chief Executive.

Also on the 22nd, a Birtherbot threatened to kill the President. On the anniversary of Kennedy’s killing. Coincidentally.

On the following day, treasonous, seditious, child-molesting scumbucket Larry Klayman held a rally in DC, calling overtly for the overthrow of our legitimately elected government. Covertly, he called for Obama’s assassination. Coincidentally.

On the same day as that “rally”, a “Christian militia” group declared that they have the right to kill the Prexy.. Coincidentally.

This writer is not the sharpest tool in the shed, nor is he the brightest bulb on the shelf. But it seems pretty interesting that all of these high-profile death threats against our President took place within 48 hours of the anniversary of another Presidential assassination. Coincidence, the threateners say; why, there’s no connection between between their groups, not at all, honest, pinky swear. Coincidence.

And hey, maybe that’s so. But even if these exceedingly similar death threats are not connected, it says a lot about our nation that they are happening at this time. And by an amazing coincidence, what it says is nothing good.

20131122-081842.jpg This flyer was put on doorsteps all over Dallas just before President Kennedy arrived there, fifty years ago. It was part of an organized and deliberate “conservative” hate-speech campaign that ended with the death of a President.

After Kennedy’s assasination, many groups of people learned many lessons: The city of Dallas learned that being the “City of Hate” was NOT a good thing, and has been trying to change ever since that terrible day.
The radical Left thought the lesson was “violence works”, and tried it themselves. They quickly realized that they learned the wrong lesson, and stopped doing that stupid s***.
The civil rights movement learned that “conservatives” were even crazier and more violent than they thought, and changed tactics as a result.
Liberals learned that when “conservatives” used hateful and violent rhetoric, they really mean it, and started using the courts to try to make their own assassinations less likely.

And the “Conservatives” that caused the Kennedy killing? Why, they’re doing the same thing to Obama that they did to Kennedy: hate speech, violent rhetoric, ad nauseum – nay, ad infinitum. They still think that the lesson of 11/22 is “violence works”.

Which once again shows that those stupid f***s couldn’t poor pee out of a boot without a thirty-page instruction manual: in fact, they probably wouldn’t even read the thing at all, and just wind up making a terrible, stinking mess. No, what happened as a result of the assassination of Kennedy (and Kennedy, and King) was the beatification of them as individuals and the advancement of their agendas. So, the Raging Righties in their Tightie Whities pretty clearly haven’t got a f***ing clue as to what they did in 1963, or what they’re doing now, or the consequences of either.

They helped to kill a sitting President with their words and actions fifty years ago today. They are trying to do it again, because they were never held to account for their despicable actions back then. So maybe the lesson that “Republicans” learned from 11/22/63 was this: “We got away with it. Let’s do it again”. It certainly looks that way, doesn’t it?

Lots of people on the Left and Right are hugely hosed off at Obama for continuing and expanding the Bushies’ Domestic Surveillance State, including your humble correspondent. However, far too many of us are acting as though Obama is somehow unique in behaving thus. That, friends, is nonsense.

Every President has done things that could be considered “bad”, including the Father of our Country, George Washington (ordered Indian massacres). Some more recent examples:

Harry Truman dropped Atomic Bombs on Japan, killing thousands of innocent civilians.
Eisenhower approved the Dresden firebombing that did likewise.
Kennedy ordered the invasion of Cuba.
Johnson escalated the war in Indochina.
Nixon. Need we say more?
Reagan: Gave arms to terrorists in Iran and South America.
Clinton: NAFTA and perjury.

Get the picture? Obama is better than most, and possibly worse than a few.

But anybody who thinks that a couple of databases, or support for equal rights, or anything else that the Prexy has done compares with the mass murders ordered by his predecessors is in serious need of a reality check.

We are all familiar by now with the cowardly Ted Nugent, who literally crapped his pants when he thought he might be drafted, yet talks a big game about guns and shooting other people (like the Prexy, for instance). What a sorry little needledicked pussy is Teddy Poopy Panties.

Turns out there are a lot of little Teddy Bois running around out there: Wimps With Tweets. These are tweets from momma-threw-away-the-baby-and-raised-the-afterbirth types who think that Presidential Assassination is great fun. Not that any of these zeebs would have the guts to do so.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky was around for the assassinations of both Kennedys and MLK, and the attempts on Reagan and Bush The Elder. None of these were funny. None of them were good. All of them were despicable crimes against people and our nation as a whole. The difference between then and now?

Why, back then there were far fewer hate merchants promulgating their filth on the airwaves, in print and via social media. The Limbaughs, Hannities and others of their ilk have made it ordinary and thus socially acceptable to shout violent hate speech 24/7/365, and so it is hardly surprising that others have chosen to emulate them.

Hopefully all of these chicken-shit big-mouthed tools will get a visit from the Secret Service, so they can further emulate Nugent by crapping their own pants in fear. It is probably too much to hope that they would grow a pair and perhaps even learn to speak in a responsible, adult, and rational manner.

Mr. B & C

The Supremes are backstage, discussing and preparing for their Big Show, when they shall ponce on out in their matching outfits and belt out their next hit: “ACA, Live or Die”. However, from what we all saw at the final dress rehearsal in March, there are reasons to worry about the show (and the reviews).

All right, enough with the showbiz simile, let’s bring the blunt, focusing on three big areas of concern.

1] Justice Scalia not only hasn’t read the bill on which he is to rule, he doesn’t want to – says it’s too much work. How do you render a decision when you don’t know the facts? You make stuff up. The idea that our Supreme Court will create judicial precedent using a toolbox composed of laziness, ignorance and preconceptions does NOT help this writer to stay in his happy place.

2] Silent Clarence’s wife has made over a million bucks from companies with an interest in the outcome of the case, which means ol’ Clare himself (being married to her and all) has seen over a million bucks come in from those litigants. But he has not recused himself. Seems like a pretty blatant conflict of interest, but D.C. has become so beholden to the green and folding that no one seems to care that a sitting “justice” is in a position to make money off his rulings. That is some scary stuff, folks.

3] The question of “who is in the market” is central to the case, and it seems like a slam-dunk – EVERYBODY is in the market, even if they are healthy (just ask Ulrich the U.). I mean, DUH, everyone gets sick or injured now and again, and rarely do they know of such events in advance. Thus Congress has the power to regulate via the commerce clause. But the justices (all of whom have used health care, and should thereby know better) were acting as if there were some question about who was in the market. Can we please cut back on the crack at judicial hookah parties?

But as bleak the outcome and dire the potential for an act of judicial activism that would rival Bush V. Gore (in which the Supremes previously usurped the powers given exclusively to Congress, and said Congress rolled over and showed their pale, quivering bellies); as much as partisanship, sloth and greed do seem to indicate that the court will screw the majority of we poor citizens; there is a glimmer o’ hope.

During questioning, two justices in particular (Roberts and Kennedy) seemed to grasp the notion that the Commerce Clause of the Constitution applies because, well, it is effing obvious that it does. If even one of them rules on that logical basis, we’re in and the health care industry has to let the light shine in on its hitherto hidden financial practices. Otherwise, wellwhatthehell, might as well shut down the Legislative Branch and send them home, since the Supreme Court will have taken over the job of making law.

Next time – Damfino at the moment, but in this crazy-arsed world, there is sure to be something to blog about.

P.S.: Mr. B & C actually worked in the health care field for a fair few years, and on the financial side at that, so he speaks from experience when he doth so bloggeth.
