Filling The Shoes Of A Fool
Sorry, folks but Antonin Scalia was a fatuous, human size grub who has forestalled any progress the United States was capable of in his career. He was an originalist who probably would’ve voted against Dred Scott because there was nothing in the Constitution about slaves being property.
His position, if it wasn’t there, and the intent wasn’t behind it, he opposed it. Some of you may think this is a good idea. Other sentient beings understood that it is a living document, chock full of the rights of the people. The main of jurisprudence is built on this idea. Oh, sure, it fails sometimes, but on the whole constitutional law eventually breaks for the will of the people.
Antonin Scalia was the foremost enemy of progress. Clarence Thomas doesn’t count or rate because he never speaks, a useless conservative cipher, a rubber stamp against the anything positive. It’s a shame whenever people die, but I for one will not miss his presence on the court, at the very least.
So now we will have to have split decisions on anything that comes before the court because President Obama, who was elected to a second term of four years, should not be allowed to pick a replacement. I told you they are anarchists; they do nothing but destroy. Hell, that’s probably complimenting them too much, because it doesn’t look like they want to do anything except repeal Obamacare every two weeks.
It’s going to be a real rollercoaster ride. Republicans may think running out the clock is a good strategy, but they are assuming something that may prove fatal to their obstruction; that they will win the White House. One thing they are not taking into account is the inevitability of a new Democratic president named Hillary Clinton who will have coattails big enough to take the Senate back from these failures.
