I too don't know what the caption was about - it just sounded bad-ass.
I saved the two pictures that appear in this post a few weeks or a month ago. They were to be used in a post about the ctlr-left's newfound interest in corruption on the part of Supreme Court Justices. This corruption hasn't been a problem for the last 50 years, amazingly. These concerns have cropped up since the year-ago ruling against the unConsitutional usurpation of yet more States' authority that was called Roe v Wade.
The ctrl-left is SHOCKED, and I mean SHOCKED, really, that this one branch of the US Gov't does not have to always push the country to the left. I mean, they've had pretty good control of the Legislative Branch via the UniParty (80-90% member coverage, higher in the Senate) for a few decades, total control of the Media Branch for about 25 years, control of the Executive Branch for arguably the last 30-40, with the exception of those 4 years, '17-'21 - that's what has made them VERY ANGRY ... VERY ANGRY INDEED.
Yep, that's all 4 branches. Now, somehow, the SCROTUS, top of the Judicial Branch, has wandered off the plantation. This latest ruling yesterday against the nearly 60 y/o-long government mandates of discrimination in hiring, promotion, and admission of White men, called Affirmative Action, has made them even ANGRIER. They are again, VERY ANGRY INDEED!
I'll put the 2 posts together: the ctrl-left's vendetta against SCROTUS and the effect of this latest ruling that tries to uphold the Constitution. (The nerve!)
First of all, let me say that the impetus for the lawsuit that resulted in this ruling, on admission to Ivy League universities, is not anything I care much about, other than any unConstitutionality. of it. The Ivy Leagues and half of the rest of the universities can burn, for all I care. (I would divvy up that fraction by schools and departments.) When it comes to forced discrimination in the job market and inside Big Biz, I care a lot. (See our series Harvesting the fruits of a half-century of Affirmative Action - Part 1 - - Part 2 - - Part 3 - - Part 4 and Part 5.)
Will yesterday's decision 6-2* SCROTUS decision "end it, not mend it", to reverse-a-phrase the President Clinton of 28 years back? I'm not as optimistic as some. I believe the ctrl-left minions are hashing out work-arounds in faculty lounges, HR/corporate meetings, and coffee shops as we write this post.
It's be great to see a blizzard of lawsuits against this > half-century travesty. However, I expect the words "racist", "sexist", "homophobe", and "xenophobe" to be tossed into the fray, making most plaintiffs, lawyers, and judges scurry under their covers. We'll see on this. It's good to hold out hope.
Right here, I would like to thank President Donald Trump for appointing 3 pretty decent Justices, Neil Gorsuch, Brent Kavanaugh, and Amy Barrett. He was lucky to have gotten a chance to appoint 3 in one term, and he seems to have not let us down. That itself may be luck, or maybe Trump actually had good judgement or got good advice on these picks. I remember G.W. Bush having first tried to appoint some secretary or something, and then there was his big dud, John Roberts, still there screwing the pooch most of the time.
But, yeah, there's luck involved. Some go native, as Peak Stupidity explained in our Cocktail Party Theory of Political Stupidity. Others may very well be latent lefties by design, having plans to head left soon after the confirmation hearings are finished.
George H.W. Bush nominated the guy below for Justice 32 years ago tomorrow, and after a rash of sexual-harassment nonsense, he was confirmed in mid-October of that year, '91. I'd have to nominate him as the BEST OF SCROTUS over the course of my lifetime.**
For some reaction by prominent lefties against this latest court decision, you may want to read a couple of Steve Sailer posts (and the threads below) from today, You'll be Surprised to Learn That Michelle Obama Is Taking the Supreme Court's Affirmative Action Decision Personally (heh!) and Surprise! Former LARPer of Color Liz Warren Is Taking Personally That the Supreme Court Is Shutting Down Her Old Grift.
I would guess that the anti-corruption campaign against certain Justices will be put into high gear after this deal. This stuff about the scandalous behavior is even in Forbes magazine***. Guess who they are all picking on?
* Kenatta what-have-you Jackson Brown recused herself based on Hissy Fit.
** I don't follow all of the decisions closely, so perhaps Sam Alito and the late Antonin Scalia should share the honor.
*** That's from early May, as this anti-Conservative-Justice campaign got going.
