CHURCH : STATE

OIL : WATER

The Messiah had spoken…

Get it? Oil and water don’t Mix. Church and State don’t mix. And the
Messiah, Ronald Reagan decreed that edict during his two terms in the Oval
Office.

As I live and breathe, with my hand upon a bible, the highest court in our
land, the U.S. Supreme Court, has always ruled Separation of Church and State
is PRECEDENT case law. Period, end of discussion.

I was educated at Public Schools. I received my Law Degree from a Private
Roman Catholic Law School.

At my Law School, we were not ‘schooled’ in an alternative reality
accompanied by alternative facts. My Constitutional Law Professor relied on
real facts to teach this subject. Indeed. We studied real Supreme Court cases
and learned how precedent case law evolves not over months, or years,
but decades.

To be clear, it was always my understanding Supreme Court precedents are
final. I.e.. Roe v Wade was precedent case law for over 50 years. The
Conservatives Justices currently sitting on the bench all acknowledged that Roe
was precedent, established case law, not to be re-litigated. So much for their
word…

Many legal scholars and everyday folk interpret the U.S. Constitution to be
a living, breathing document that was written to adapt to societal changes. You
heard me… in my opinion, the Founding Fathers, wanted to heed the will
of the American people
while upholding Constitutionally protected
freedoms.

On the other hand, some folks believe the Constitution must be strictly
construed
, where there is no flexibility to its interpretation. This is
akin to the saying, “follow the letter of the law”. No surprise here
that many ‘conservatives’ espouse this opinion.

So what does this have to do with prayer at a public school? Everything
these days.

As we all know, the Supreme Court Conservative Justices ruled in less than
one week, that people can walk anywhere in the United States with a gun; Women
have no rights over their body’s; and now, a football coach can pray on the 50
yard line at the public high school he teaches at.

Clearly, these Conservative Justices do not give a shit about legal precedent
and have no respect for the Justices who served on the Court before them. Their
behavior on a professional level is abhorrent. As I have previously stated, the
Justices are ruling on cases based on their own personal opinion/bias, not the
rule of law.

Oh wait a minute. Are you thinking, ‘it’s no big deal if a coach gets down
on one knee at the 50-yard line during a football game held at a public high
school’? Oh, but the coach prayed after the game. Like that makes a
difference.

Seriously, this is really bad. It totally violates precedent case law
regarding Separation of Church and State.

Welcome to the Supreme Court Crazy Town. Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the
majority decision and ruled the coach’s prayers on the 50-yard line of a
football field were ‘private speech’ protected by the First Amendment. Oh, and
by the way, the Majority opinion believed this was all okey dokey, because the
coach was not representing the public school district. Seriously? This is a legal
opinion by a Justice?

Stop for a moment! Let me get this straight…the coach was on the field
when he was actively working in his capacity as coach of the public high school
football team. And then he engaged in Private Speech? That is absurd!
The coach was praying on the 50-yard line in public…what is private about
that? I have to stop; my head is going to explode.

As a point of reference, at the Private Roman Catholic Law School I
attended, when we studied Supreme Court Landmark Decisions, i.e.., Roe v
Wade
, a Priest did not come to our lecture hall and discuss the Catholic
Church’s opinion regarding abortion. That would have been wholly inappropriate.

I just am unable to write at the moment. I am watching the January 6 Senate
Hearings, and an ex-white aide to Former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows that Trump
wanted to remove all the magnetometers so the angry mob could storm the Capital
with their AR 15s, brass knuckles, and other weapons. Trump knew the crowd had
weapons, body armor when he told them to march to the capital. Better yet,
Trump wanted to go to the Capital when all this chaos was unfolding, and Trump
apparently lunged at secret service detail, in the Presidential Limo, and he,
yes Trump, tried to grab the steering wheel to drive to the U.S. Capital.

Microphone drop…

WAKE UP AMERICA!

VOTE for Freedom of Choice

In the Good ‘ole U.S. of A, there are people in this country who espouse conservative views as to how we ALL should live. Oh please. I know you are not surprised. It is not like I am re-inventing the wheel.

Trump, who’s name makes me cringe, was part of a bigger picture to satisfy the dreams and aspirations of the minority views of this country.

Trump was the vehicle these conservatives all used to fulfill their agenda. And by the by, these conservatives have been planning and plotting for over 50 years to mold the good ‘ole U.S. of A. into their own image of how this Country should look politically and socially.

Yes, they have been insidious, however, this was all done openly, in the public view. And no one stopped them. For years, conservatives have been changing how we vote; they continue to ‘re-district’ voting, change the boundaries to favor their own conservative candidates. They want to do away with absentee voting, limit the hours the vote, reduce the amount of places a citizen can vote, and in some cases, impose identification requirements that make it near impossible for some to vote. This is truly diabolical; it is all done to restrict access to voting. To prevent the ‘other voters’, namely democrats, people of color, poor people, people who live in rural areas, people who live in urban areas, from exercising their Constitutional Right to Vote.

Thus, these so-called ‘Conservative Folks’, have been for years, working at the State and Local levels to change the rules for voting. The upside is that their candidates win elections.

Oh, but wait, there is more. The Conservatives knew what they were doing. The goal was to control State AND Local Governments, to effectuate their political, social agenda.

Surprised? Oh come on. Really? And finally, drum roll, the moment they have been planning for 50 years… for the Supreme Court to Overturn Roe, and leave it to the individual States (that the Conservatives control), to effectuate a total Ban on abortion. Bingo.

I am not finished yet. Our reality gets worse. When Trump was President (help), he ‘appointed’ an excessive number of CONSERVATIVE Judges to sit on the the Federal Courts throughout the U.S.

Now, did Trump pick these conservative judges? Hell no. The bandwagon of conservatives, took control of that train, and crafted a new Federal Court system that would espouse Conservative views. Hence, the proverbial wheels were set in motion to ultimately overturn Roe.

Let’s talk about the current Justices on the Supreme Court. Again, no surprise. The three judges that Trump appointed, were part of this disgusting agenda to change America, for the worse. In the spirit of Trump, these “Supreme Court Appointees”, all lied when asked at their Senate Confirmation Hearings and private meetings to Senators, as to whether they would overturn Roe.

Trump lied to the American Public, so it naturally followed that his appointees to the highest court in our land, would lie as to their judicial intentions. I really have no words for this.

Wake Up America!

If you do not want to live in an oppressive society, where law-abiding citizens are stripped of their individual freedoms of choice, you must VOTE for the candidates who support a modern society that respects the right to privacy, the right to choose, the right to enjoy constitutional freedoms.

The reversal of Roe has sent shock waves around the world in all free societies. First world nations are looking at the U.S. and scratching their heads in disbelief. Why? Because as a Superpower, we moving backwards, and thwarting the will of the majority of Americans.

VOTE TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION! #mybodymychoice

VOTE to Be Part of the Solution!

My friend J. told me several years ago.. “BE PART OF THE SOLUTION NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM.”

Ladies and Gentlemen, I ask you all to heed those words of wise wisdom.

VOTE!

Vote to elect U.S. Senators, U.S. Congressmen and Congresswomen, All State, County, Local Officials, Judges, District Attorneys, to represent the majority of the Americans who live in the present and future, not the past.

As we all know, the Conservative Justices on the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, which legalized abortion for over 50 years. These Justices abrogated their Judicial responsibility to:

  1. Implement legal principles of stare decisis and precedent.
  2. Have an awareness of society’s needs, namely that of the majority of the people.

By overturning Roe, the Conservative Justices, in my eyes, forever tarnished the respectability of the Supreme Court. The Justices essentially gave a big fu#k you to all the esteemed, brilliant Men and Women who previously served on the Court.

Not nice. Where is the justice? Don’t answer that.

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT HAS NO REGARD FOR THE LIFE OF A WOMAN

The New Reality

The United States Supreme Court was once a Crown Jewel in the American experiment called Democracy. 

However, today the Court has fallen from grace. The Justices who voted to overturn Roe v Wade, all stated during their respective Senate Confirmation Hearings, which were televised, they would not overturn this case. In fact, many confirmed that Roe v Wade was settled case law, due to legal terms as ‘Precedent’ and ‘Stare Decisis.’ 

The Conservative Justices of the Court who voted to overturn Roe, are disgraceful. They are liars, and clearly do not have respect for the Supreme Court and the principles of precedent and stare decisis that, up until this moment, were the core foundation of this once heralded institution.

Now Clarence Thomas, the Justice who should resign from the Court due to the alleged seditious acts of his wife leading up to and on January 6, 2021, wants to ‘revisit the rulings’ in landmark Supreme Court Decisions that concerned same-sex marriage, contraception, and sodomy.

To be clear, Thomas took the ruling in Roe a step further, which is totally out-of-bounds with how the Court has historically presided over cases. 

This is outrageous! The Conservative Judges, Alito, Thomas, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Coney-Barrett, and Roberts, unequivocally disregard the will of the majority of Americans. The Court is tasked with the responsibility to have a consciousness as to where we are as a society. Moreover, a Judge should rule on the law, and not have their own personal belief system infect their decision making process. 

The dissenting opinion, penned by the liberal justices, wrote “no one should be confident that this Majority is done with its work.” 

Based on that ominous warning, the Conservative Justices are ‘gunning’ to take away more rights that we the people have enjoyed for decades.

Very scary indeed, in this day and age, in the United States of America, to be stripped of personal freedoms of choice. 

Shame, shame, shame.
