Well, Part II proved insufficient so today we’ll do Part III, (I promise this will conclude the series). Today I’m back to a solid PG rating but it is no less dystopian and the real problem is that it could come true.

The radical majority of the current Supreme Court seems fixated on what they call originalism which in part proclaims that if it is not in the original text of the Constitution then the Constitution can’t possibly cover it.
It is late Monday morning as I commence penning this and the Supreme Court has issued another 6-3 decision that violates the Constitution but conforms to the right wing majority’s philosophy. This was another (and I fear it will not be the last) religion over law decision. (It will be interesting to see how they weasel out of that philosophy if the court challenge to the overturning of Roe based on the teachings of the Jewish faith ever reaches them.
In the wake of the Dobbs decision being used as an opportunity for five justices with a predetermined agenda to overturn Roe it is easy to lose sight of the two January 6th Committee hearings of last week. In fact, I had a though about the timing of the release of the decision among a few others.
It is late Friday morning as I commence to pen this. That is important in both relation to the title and the fact that some of the subjects of my comments are dynamic in nature. If you want to display your ignorance of contemporary American politics all you have to do is say something along the line of all politicians are the same. That is uttered everyday and is a major reason America often finds itself on the wrong track. The events of the last 24 hours are a crystal-clear illustration of that!
