The Scalia Affair

February 15, 2016

As if the infantile Republican-controlled Congress hasn't done enough to destroy any confidence in their ability to govern, along comes the unfortunate threats regarding any impending SCOTUS candidate put forth by President Obama.

Not that I didn't expect it. Since Obama came to office they have done nothing but obstruct his agenda in a blatant display of partisanship tinged with racism. They act like two-year olds, kicking their feet, screaming and threatening to "hold their breath" if they don't get their way.

In that great and near-holy document, our Constitution, it is written “The President shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint…Judges of the supreme Court.” Note that is says "shall nominate" not “may". Doesn’t sound like the great, Conservative “Protectors of the Constitution" are so willing to go along with it now, does it?

Our entire system is screwed up from the ground up, both parties. This is precisely why we need a “revolution” this electoral year. We need to throw out the bums and elect a Congress that will do the will of the people. But we’re too stupid. I’m won’t hold my breath.
