The Supreme Court Has Gone Too Far!

The majority Republican Supreme Court, an unelected body that acts often as if they are outside of any concern about public opinion, has simply gone too far, in ruling that a corporation is not only a person, and therefore unlimited corporate donations are permitted, but also a corporation can limit access to birth control and contraception on its health care plan, based on the “Christian” values of its owners!

Also, the Court has worked to weaken public labor unions, and set out to undermine voting rights in the South and Midwest, leading to mass violations of voting rights, and new voter limitations for poor people.

This Court has gone amuck, demonstrating that it is involved in a war on woman, labor, blacks, and immigrants, all while being extremely pro corporation and pro religion, when we have separation of church and state as part of our basic constitutional beliefs!

The Court majority is promoting a religious oligarchy of powerful, wealthy corporate leaders, and this will motivate women, workers, blacks, immigrant groups, environmentalists and people of both genders who care about social justice and equality to become politically active and vote in November!

If the people do not react, they will get what they deserve–a government of, by and for the top one percent!

The Senate must remain Democratic for future Court appointments, and the Presidency must stay in the hands of the Democrats, in order to prevent conservative activist nominees in the future, such as Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito represent.

It is likely there will be three to four nominees for the high Court by 2020, so Democrats must have control, but to do that, the people must react to these outrages of the Supreme Court!

    Lifetime appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court need to be brought to an end. There is no reason this should be continued. Term limits were brought, finally, to the presidency of the United States. Term limits should have also been brought to the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. But, since this topic is about the U.S. Supreme Court, they should the first.

    D, I totally agree with you, but a constitutional amendment requires, as you know, a two thirds vote of each house of Congress, and backing by a majority of both houses in 38 state legislatures, and that is not going to happen, sadly!

    Hello Professor,

    Hobby Lobby is based on, and supported by, the Southern Baptist Christians….the same religious aspect that is preaching “Full Quiver Project”. (As noted on one if my ” Minds and Times” posting)

    They oppose reproduction prohibitors such as IUDs and the Morning After pill. (Because the egg is fertilized and life has begun).

    The Episcopal and Jewish faiths have come out stating that this supreme Court ruling has bastardized religion to suppress women’s reproduction rights.

    “Women will never be truly free until they have control of their own reproduction.”

    Robert Green Ingersoll quote

    He was prominent member of the Republican Party in 1875.

    My how we have degraded.

    The Republican Party has alienated thinking women, as well as Hispanics, African Americans, Asian Americans, workers, environmentalists, young voters, etc. Their base is getting smaller and smaller, and they do nothing to encourage growth!

    The Supreme Court went too far when they erroneously upheld the minimum wage as constitutional.
