"Supreme Court Inc."


The right wing gets it - if you want to keep unconstitutional laws in force, you have to pack the Supreme Court.

Folks like the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights have recognized the successful efforts of the Bush administration to pack all levels of the federal judiciary with right wing judges. The current Supreme Court has taken bites out of almost every constitutional principle that has come before it and even Time Magazine has noted that the Robert's Court is pro-business.

All this cheery news of the right wing high-jacking the federal courts gets even more gloomy when reading "Supreme Court, Inc." by the NY Times. The Times article highlights how cheery the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has been with the Robert's Court's pro-business/anti-consumer decisions.

"Ever since John Roberts was appointed chief justice in 2005, the court has seemed only more receptive to business concerns. Forty percent of the cases the court heard last term involved business interests, up from around 30 percent in recent years. While the Rehnquist Court heard less than one antitrust decision a year, on average, between 1988 and 2003, the Roberts Court has heard seven in its first two terms — and all of them were decided in favor of the corporate defendants."


The next U.S. President will likely appoint 3 U.S. Supreme Court judges!! President Bush has rewarded his most loyal supporters - the religious right wing - with appointments of justices that will erode civil liberties. Bush has rewarded his most loyal contributors - Chamber of Commerce folks - with justices who disregard consumers in favor of corporations. And, Bush has done it intelligently - pick the young guys. A life time appointment is all the more meaningful since Alito and Roberts will be there for 40 years.

Democrats can have have 3 life time picks or they can allow McCain to pick the new justices. McCain is already sucking up to the extreme right wing promising to pick more Scalia and Thomas-like justices. If there is a civil liberty that you like, get united around a Democratic candidate for President now!

All this from an attorney that believes that private businesses are public, just because they permit the public to enter.

The rights of a businessman are just as strong as the rights of the consumer. The rights of an employee are equal to those of the employer.

The answer is simple, and constitutional, if the consumer doesn't like what the business has to offer; don't buy from them. Asking the government to control a private business, because the consumer wants something different, is wrong. The market will control the business.

If you think the Robert’s Court decisions have been incorrect, please point to one or two. We can see whether or not an opposite decision would be constitutional. I hope it is not too much to ask you to provide proof, rather than just stating that they are bad.

I am not influenced by Time nor Rush Limbaugh, as both have an agenda.

I agree - get rid of the FDA, the FAA, the CPSC. Who wants a safe drug, airplane or toy when we can trust Enron!

The rights of corporations are not mentioned in the Consitution or the Bill of Rights.

Let the buyer beware has never worked, ask the people dieing from Heprin that the Chinese screwed up.

I knew the 2moons dil so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the 2moons gold that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the 2moon dil together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy 2moons dil more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap 2moons gold as the gifts to encourage me.
