Response to Skinner (Original post)

23. If our government was not wholly owned by the fascist corporate machine I may agree with Thom.

The SCOTUS 'installed' George W. Bush as President so they 'can' control the Presidency. They control the Presidency all the time. Example: Declaring a corporation as an individual with individual rights subverts elections with amounts of money no regular individual can produce to impact an election. Unconstitutional voter suppression is going on as I write this. I Have read the Constitution and apparently some of the US Supreme Court members have not. Scalia says it is just a piece of paper. It does not matter what is written in the Constitution if the Senate, Congress and the President ignore it and subvert it. War crimes and treason committed by past federal officials goes unpunished. Endangering the nation's security because financial institutions can rob the people of billions and bankrupt them because they can't pay for health care and go unpunished tells me that people in power with university educations have not and refuse to read or uphold the Constitution. Apparently they have become smart enough and rich enough not to give a rats rear end what We the People think or want. There are no more 'checks and balances' no matter how much Thom Hartman quotes Thomas Jefferson. The check that matters is the one corporations use to buy subversion of our freedom.
