6 of 9 Ain’t Divine

`

PREFACE: Donald J. Trump contends that his opponent, if elected, intends to “stack” the Supreme Court bench with liberals (via an expansion of the current nine judge “limit”). As for Joe Biden’s actual intent, he has yet to respond with a thumbs up or thumbs down. Of course, thumbing his nose at Donny would be far more apropos, considering the fake prez’s shameless hypocrisy in this very matter. All gestures aside, Joe could easily build a formidable case in defense of “stacking”, thusly…

The evidence is irrefutable. Trump, himself, has been stacking the Supreme Court bench with hardcore conservatives; namely, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and the soon to be installed Amy Coney Barrett.

Once this rookie trio colludes with the inveterate veterans (rightwingers John Roberts, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas), Donny will own and operate 6 out of 9 SCOTUS judges (67%).

One has to seriously call into question the flagrant unfairness of 67% of SCOTUS judges kowtowing to the interests of the 35% of Americans who identify as conservatives; while simultaneously screwing over 65% of Americans who identify as liberals / moderates.

The math, alone, calls for a 67% liberal / moderate Supreme Court bench. Of course, to achieve such a feat would require EITHER firing Trump’s three appointees and replacing them with lefties / centrists OR hiring additional judges who think along these lines. Let’s explore these options further.

Seeing how the Founding Fathers had stipulated that SCOTUS judges are supposed to serve until they either retire or die, that firing action would be actionable. However, since they had never stipulated any specific, set number of judges, that hiring action could easily pass any constitutional scholar’s sniff test.

So, let’s take a whiff of what Donald J. Trump’s Supreme Court stacking has established; how it utterly fails to represent the vast majority of Americans. In essence, he’s forcing liberals and moderates to suffer; i.e., due to his sadistic judges’ saturated with ignorance and discrimination decisions.

More specifically, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and the up and coming Amy Coney Barrett will soon be striking down Obamacare, Medicare, Social Security and Labor Unions; gutting the Bill of Rights, Civil Rights, the Rights of Women, Minorities, the LGBTQIA Community, the Aged and Infirm.

This sextet fully intends to muck up fair, free elections, arm homicidal gun nuts, embolden Nazis, Klansmen and other domestic terrorists; prop up corporate personhood and unleash irreversible, catastrophic environmental ruin.

And lest we forget, in unison they’ll also shout out to Dictator Donny, “MORE POWER TO YOU!” and then stand, patiently in line, to each plant a big wet, lingering smooch on his Fascist fanny.

So, here’s were we now stand… correction… where America is about to fall. 6 out of 9 Supreme Court Trump suck-ups and their horrific rulings will continue screwing over 2 out of 3 Americans for up to 3 to 4 more decades.

And to keep it all real, in the long run, they’ll actually be mucking up the lives of 3 out of 3 Americans; eventually negatively impacting all 7.8 Billion souls, worldwide.

And so, I now ask:

WTF would be the harm of the (hopefully) victorious Joe Biden “stacking” the U.S. Supreme Court with lefties and centrists? If that’s what it’ll take to save humanity, would that not be well worth it?

What rational person would ever find fault with that?

Of course, the key word, in play, here, is RATIONAL!

John Lewis’ Good Trouble (Vid of the Day)

Our featured clip’s setup, as it appears over @YouTube…

“Founders Sing took a break from making parody videos to create an original song in honor of John Lewis. It was inspired by the powerful phrase he coined, “Good Trouble.” Now let’s all cause more Good Trouble by speaking up for justice… and VOTING!”

My kudos to Founders Sing for composing such an influential, soul searching, rallying Anthem!

R.I.P. John Lewis! While there’s much of your work, yet, to be done, your lifetime of activism and “good trouble” advocacy has afforded society a substantial starting point. The sturdy foundation you built and forward thinking you inspired will (hopefully soon) see to fruition, your vision for a unified world.

July Musical BlogCast ~ Pleas For Freedom

Welcome to my July BlogCast. In a land called America (soon to celebrate its 241st birthday) there is supposed to be liberty and justice for all.

How shocking it is that such age and wisdom do not walk hand in hand. How appalling that still unresolved ethnic, religious and gender issues sow the seeds of deadly oppression and hate crimes.

Where all people are not allowed to be free there can be no true, free society.

Each of this month’s recording artists have so powerfully presented their appeals for freedom that there’s absolutely no need for any further DJ type set up.

Let’s let the music speak for itself…

 

Beyoncé ~ Freedom

Ardee ~ #BlackLivesMatter (Freedom)

Pharrell Williams ~ Freedom
