Day 402: No Retreat, Baby, No Surrender

Day started off blue. I was discouraged, had an awful nightmare, awoke sad and frightened.

Well, pardon my French but fuck that.

There's no crying in baseball, and there's no value in licking your wounds. Put a bandage on them as needed, get up, and fight back.

Tomorrow, five bastards on the Supreme Court are going to tell millions of fellow citizens that they don't matter, that since they are poor or somehow disadvantaged, it's not right for their neighbors in society to help them. They're basically being told to just go ahead and die, and pipe down about it.


But what else would we expect from this court, the same group who decided who would be president in 2000, and the same group who declared that corporations were people in the Citizens United ruling... and the same group who had two members particularly (Roberts and Alito) who testified that they would let precedent rule (a rule of thumb for legal decisions FOREVER) and instead have ignored precedent over and over in their rulings?

Or a justice (Thomas) whose wife is on the payroll of the biggest Tea Party activists in the country?

We don't live in a democracy, folks. We live in a society that is ruled by money and those who have it. The rest of you (us) can just go to hell.

So stop feeling sorry for yourself. Find a way to fight back, because these guys are going to keep screwing you until you do.
