Al Franken slams The Roberts Court

6 posts / 0 new

I'm Minnesotan and the local programming on AM950 played much of what Al Franken said just now over the radio. I thought it was a brilliant speech. I found a link from huffington if anyone is interested to see more about it.

If only we could see Justice Franken someday... I kid.

Thanks Jayse, I am still waiting for impeachment of the justices' actions in 2000 re: appointing a president. How can we start impeachment without the House? It seems that our legislators are more interested in today's right-wing media rhetoric than the legacy they will leave. Who will remember the pragmatists who settled for 1/2 a healthcare bill and donated our soldiers lives to short-term political cowardice? Shouldn't they care what their grandchildren will read - like maybe "Senator X spent the last years of his term arguing behind closed doors with Republicans who went on to destroy the US democracy" ??

Justice Franken would make far more sense that Justice Roberts. From what I've seen, John Roberts couldn't reason his way out of a paper bag.

How much did "fast track" cost the corporate elite?

It cost corporations less than $18,000 bucks per vote to get “fast track” passed in the United States Senate.

According to a recent analysis by The Guardian Newspaper, corporate members of the US Business Coalition for TPP donated more than $1.1 million dollars to Senate campaigns in the first quarter of 2015. The average Democrat received about $9,700 dollars and the average Republican raked in almost $20,000.
