Supreme Court Follies

When the Supreme Court came down on the side of Hobby Lobby’s right to participate in their employees’ family planning as well as determining the extent of healthcare which female employees can access, Weird Wally was not surprised.   If corporations are people, then they have the right to religious freedom as well as free speech.  And although not surprised, he was confused.  “How the hell did corporations become people in the first damn place?” he posted on the internet. 

At one time, Wally saw the Justices in their black robes as the wisest of the wise, but with the recent antics of Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas, Wally now sees them as a bunch of blacked robed clowns.   “Religious freedom my ass,” he wrote later in that post.  “This is about giving the top one percent even more power in determining how the rest of us live our lives.

“What Roberts and his conservative Justices are doing,” he concluded, “are opening doors to closets that contain some horrible and scary monsters that we have yet to imagine.  Just wait and see.”
