Reigning (Not So) Supreme

 ("As Roe Teeters, Belief in Court Could Tilt, Too")

The court as political weapon?

Hobby Lobby.  Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado.

An appointment to the Supreme Court has forever been a tool by which a President attempts to impose his executive will over another branch of government. Its independence more a work of fiction than reality. Only now, thanks to the pronouncements of Mr. Trump and the blatant refusal of his party to consider the nomination of Judge Garland, this charade has been more fully exposed.

And when the neutering or worse of Roe occurs will there be any to confront the inescapable truth and declare that, even as with the office of the President, term limits should be imposed on the power of nine to reshape this country?

Maybe this time will be the tipping point. But if history be our guide, we will once more turn a blind eye to the injustice of Justices reigning not so supreme from here to eternity.

And so our experiment in democracy teeters in the balance of the scales of justice. Sad indeed.

Yes the court is politically biased and has been a disaster since the Citizens United decision.
