Is coming nearer on the path.

Cutting to the Chase

A propos "Justice Sunday" Part Deux:

At the rally Sunday, Mike Miller, 54, of Gallatin echoed many of the speakers comments on judicial power, saying he believes Supreme Court justices try to create laws with their rulings instead of interpreting the Constitution.

"Activist justices -- we're trying to find out what we can do to stop that activity," he said. "Our laws are based on the Ten Commandments." [emphasis added]

Ack! And the people believe it! Of course, they also believe that "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" is in the bible.

You know I've been threatening to write a checks and balances post forever, but each time I start I get too pissed off. How can these people sit there and talk about their god loving/fearing infallible founders and then rail against the non-elected judiciary designed as an integral part of checks and balances by the selfsame founders. What fucking useless mendacious self-serving gack! (*$#&%!!!
