Crazy Court – Part I

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.

Let’s explore. Continue reading Simply Splendid – A Book Review And Announcement
