Trump Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch Sustains Pattern Of Extremism

Well, I don’t know anything more about Neil Gorsuch than what I just saw on TV during President Trump’s news conference nominating him. Still, I do have a few thoughts.

All in all Gorsuch seems like a good choice to replace Scalia, well educated, consistent, and even tempered. Unfortunately, his one notable credential is exactly the one that I consider to be one of the biggest dangers to our constitutional jurisprudence, and a violation of Church and State separation – the fact that he sided with Hobby Lobby expectation that the ACA be tailored to conform to their religious cult beliefs.

Hobby Lobby didn’t want abortion to be a part of the coverage their insurance provided. It’s not that I would support abortion, and in fact I am totally opposed to federal funding of Planned Parenthood. In my view, however, Hobby Lobby is a commercial business doing business in the public market, and anyone fitting that description should not be allowed to have a business license unless they follow the public rules, not their religious cultism, even if I don’t happen to like it either. The trouble is the slippery slope of public access and denial of service for arbitrary reasons by any such organization.

I also wonder why democrats are apparently planning to block the nomination in apparent retaliation. Trump is president, Gorsuch will be confirmed, or the next guy, or the next guy… can the democrats really hope for someone they will like better? Doubtful. Democrats are continuing to maintain a delusional expectation that they can just throw a tantrum and take their ball and go home if they don’t like what the other half of the country has to say. Bad news, Trump is the quarterback now.

Finally, it slipped my notice that all the current Supreme Court members are either Catholic or Jewish. Well, that shouldn’t enter into the equation any more than it should for a shopper at Hobby Lobby. Even still, as a protestant who considers anyone not protestant to be a cult, I think it’s good to maintain a balanced perspective on the court, and really there should be more protestant representation.

The Hobby Lobby Hobble And The John Roberts Handover(s)

Where does Hobby Lobby fit into the equation – “a method of social, occupational and political control, to the point of subjugation, that is in their best economic or political interest.” Why do you think they call it the “Hobble” Lobby?

    Hillaryous | Rosa Parks (should) Be Insulted

    Truth be knowed, while all eyes were on “angry white males” as many in their ranks were being throwed under the buss to make room for black folks, white women like Hillary Clinton jumped-up and headed up front too, mostly displacing the potential for black men, and even some black women to advance.

    Overcast skies threatened to put a damper on the party, however, Mr. Heston saved the day. Keeping in step with his omnipotent portrayal of Moses in “The Ten Commandments” he stepped to the microphone just as a light drizzle subsided and intoned “glad to do it.”

    Contemptuous Healthcare Boondoggle

    Frankly, I haven’t finished reading my 25,800 page copy of the Affordable Healthcare Act, much less the equally voluminous Supreme Court decision upholding most of the controversial law. Even still – IT STINKS! Look at it this way. If Congress had raised taxes across the board and then said, “we will give you a tax […]

    COMPLICITYGATE: Donald Trump’s International Coronation – Expensive But Unavoidable

    The use of chemical weapons in Syria has been a dirty, nasty, barbaric business and I’m one that doesn’t believe in “blood sacrifice” to start with. As far as I’m concerned, two percent snuff is still 98% too much – whatever that means. What I do know for sure is that Kim Jung’un has the capability, or very soon will, to summarily obliterate hundreds of millions of lives in the United States – and to quite literally wipe cities like New York completely off of the map. North Korea continues to be defiant against the International community – how strong is too much when major American cities are at stake?

    FLAG BURNING VIDEO!

    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.
