O.K. Here goes 'editorial' number two.
The Supreme Court of the United States has screwed us all.
So much for "justice." I guess we really don't count.
So, what do we do now? Protest? O.K. - I protest. I respectfully voice my own personal outrage at the audacity of the Supreme Court of this country to underhandedly stifle a fair, warranted, justifiable and correct outcome to this "election." There was no time left for a discernible conclusion? Hmmm - why not??? Because the majority of "justices" of that high court squandered that available time when they stopped the count which was in progress - and waited until that available time had run out before sharing the final blow (that legally passed for a decision) with the rest of us. Do I protest? You're damn right I do - kicking and screaming and waving my pointed finger in the air.
And I hope the democrats and everyone else in the House and Senate who are as outraged as I am about this give George W. his earthly karmic comeuppance and make it impossible for him to feel like any of us believe he legitimately won anything. He didn't. He wasn't "elected." He is going to be President, which I believe is most unfortunate for us, and much to my astonishment and dismay - but he certainly did not, in my humble opinion - earn that position in any respectable way. And we have five "justices" of our Supreme Court to thank for it; 'Justice' William H. Rehnquist, 'Justice' Antonin Scalia, 'Justice' Anthony Kennedy, 'Justice' Clarence Thomas, and 'Justice' Sandra Day O'Connor. Imagine that...
"We the people..."? "...by the people..."? "...for the people..."? Did I miss something in the third grade when the meaning of these words was first relayed to my open and welcome young ears? Am I missing something now? Has something changed in the last few weeks or did five "justices" of the Supeme Court blatantly take it upon themselves to reinterpret, reinvent, and ultimately reject one of the most important foundations of this country??? And what, exactly, do those words mean - now?
"We the people..."?
"...by the people..."?
"...for the people..."?
And I guess that's all I have to say about that, too. For now, anyway.
Peace 2 u.
