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.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
