STUBBORN ERIC CANTOR CAUSES GLOBAL COLLAPSE


AUGUST 3RD 2011

NO CHECKS IN THE MAILBOX FROM SOCIAL SECURITY & VA!

UNPAID, THE MILITARY LAYS DOWN ITS GUNS!

GROCERY SHELVES ARE EMPTY AS HUNGRY PEOPLE HORDE FOOD!

POLICE AND SHOP OWNERS GUARD THEIR SHOPS TO PREVENT LOOTING

CHURCHES ARE FULL TO THE RAFTERS AS HOPELESS MASSES RENEW THEIR FAITH

THE MEDIA CAN ONLY REPORT ON DEVASTATION

Yesterday, the United States defaulted on its debts. Moody’s yanked the US Triple AAA BOND Rating for the first time in 70 years! The US dollar is worthless! Stock markets around the world shut their doors yesterday after financial Armageddon.  So…Eric Cantor and his Tea Party are comforted by having kept their ‘promise not to raise taxes’ (on the rich upper class, rich corporations and oil companies.) The top 1% of the population— awash in wealth–toast their good fortune with Dom Perignon and beluga caviar on toast points. Eric Cantor is reported to be in hiding. Current status: Persona non grata in middle-class living rooms and skid row bars.  Democrats have issued a call for Eric Cantor’s head!

This is presented a little irreverently, but there is conflict among The President (backed by the people) and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and the controlling Tea Party.  The Congress has raised the Debt Ceiling 72 times as a matter of housekeeping, often with a one sentence bill.  This time extremist elements in the Republican Party have decided to use this issue to press their fiscal agenda.  Well, this is politics.  However, this time they are placing the nation and, surely, the world, in grave danger.  The scenario presented could happen…for real! In his press conference this morning, The President said that we have time for a big deal that would fix our economy for a decade. He already has the needed paperwork on his desk. Obama is ready to go, but, is being blocked by republicans and their ideology. He needs our help.  Will you get involved and participate in your own future?

Do you live in a red state (like me)? Every responsible American reading this post should email their US senator and US representative DEMANDING that the Debt Ceiling be raised immediately! No more soup kitchens and breadlines and selling apples on the street!

SCOTUS HAS A BLACK SPLOTCH (NO PUN INTENDED)


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The justices of the US Supreme Court enjoy a unique status in American governance: They have the job for life and have no code of ethics.  The Court has a storied history of legal decisions which carried out what our founding father wrote in The Constitution and they went beyond, but, always within the bounds of spirit of the law and intent. At first the Court was not powerful, but, Chief Justice Marshall took actions which made the Court supreme.  And, that is how we all view the US Supreme Court: The final interpreter of law and legality.

JUSTICES SCALIA AND THOMAS

A large part of our reverence and respect for the Court is grounded in their seclusion from the public eye and lack of scandal. They probably had their own sense of propriety back then.  When Clarence Thomas, black, became a candidate for the Court, I was so proud (even though he is from the other party).  The nomination hearings in the US Senate took us down a sordid lane.  On TV we watch gray-haired white men relish digging into the sex life black people, in this case, Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, also black. IMHO, the hearings were perverse. ‘A pubic hair on a Coke can?’  What has that to do with interpreting the law?

Regrettably, Justice Thomas and Justice Scalia have chosen to come out of isolation and show us their somewhat clear political views.  Justice Scalia involved himself with a Tea Party class on The Constitution and Justice Thomas is under scrutiny for his wife’s receiving questionable campaign contributions.

He has received certain gifts from a powerful real estate magnate whose lawsuits came before the Court.  Justice Thomas failed to the honorable thing and recuse himself. It is reported that Thomas received a wealth of gifts. Thousands of dollars! The Supreme Court reviewed Bush vs Gore and chose a President. Americans long for the days when certain people were good and some were not. And, we knew the difference!

=== () ===

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been very busy accepting gifts from organizations that file briefs before the court, attending political fundraisers, ruling on suits in which he or his wife have a conflict of interest, and hiding income. No wonder he hasn’t had time to ask a question from the bench in five years.

Will you ask your U.S. Representative to move to impeach him?  Just click here.
