A May the 4th be with you GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, a bit of Star Wars humor to get things going! Can you hear the Star Wars music?
What Would You Do Wednesday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s WEDNESDAY! And I do love WEDNESDAYS!
This will probably end up being a controversial post so get your coffee and strap in!
I have said it before and I will say it again: Do NOT RELY ON THE SUPREME COURT TO PROTECT OR ESTABLISH YOUR RIGHTS!
Case in point the current status of Roe v Wade.
ANYONE, and I do mean ANYONE, who was paying the slightest amount of attention should have KNOWN that Roe was going to get OVERTURNED! Trump said it; it’s been in conservative media; it has been a sticking point for all of the court justices. It was known! It did not matter what the justices said during their senate confirmations hearings. The vague, obfuscated answers filled with words like Stare Decisis (which means to stand by things already decided).
Despite KNOWING full well that Roe was going to get overturned, NOTHING was done at the federal level to protect the woman’s right to choose. NOTHING (I am “scream typing”)! The states that don’t want abortion were and still are ACTIVELY passing legislation to ban it. Meanwhile, the states that do, well, pretty silent! Even California waits until NOW to do anything!
WAKE THE F- UP PEOPLE!
Roe was a shit decision in the first place. It was poorly written and subject to easily being overturned. The court was waiting on the right combination of justices that believed in State’s Rights as found in the 10th amendment.
Obergerfell, which established gay marriage, is another shit decision. I think it even worse than Roe. Why? Because the Supreme Court established gay marriage as the “Law of the Land.” THAT is NOT the Supreme Court’s job! None the less, there it is. Well, I will bet you dollars to donuts that Obergerfell will also get overturned.
So, What Should You Do if you find yourself relying on the decisions of the Supreme Court to protect your rights?
You tell the F-ing Congressional Rep at the state and federal level to do their job and get the rights protected by making it a LAW!
DO NOT RELY ON THE COURTS TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS! THEY ARE A LAST RESORT!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember a magic dog is called a…LABRACADABRA DOODLE! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA…POOF!
