What's wrong with the Supreme court?
The US supreme court has been acting really weird: They have been passing all kinds of messed up rulings lately. I mean, first, they agree (5-4) to almost abolish the right for Private property and give the states unprecedented rights to take people's property away if it serves the economic public good by placing a Wallmart in the place of your house . This, of course, is messed up. It takes the right of eminent domain to the extreme and will most likely screw over poor people. (In an interesting sidenote, You know who opposed it? O'Connor, Rehnquist, Scalia and Thomas. You know, the more right-leaning conservative ones appointed by the Big Business Republicans. But remember, it's the democrats who are looking out for the little guy, ok?) And if that ruling wasn't stupid enough, they have now passed a ruling that OK's having Religious symbols on government buildings as long as it has been there for Years with no objections: To the extent that the decisions provided guidelines for the further cases that are all but certain to follow, it appeared to be that religious symbols that have been on display for many years, with little controversy, are likely to be upheld, while newer displays intended to advance a modern religious agenda will be met with suspicion and disfavor from the court. So the old ones are fine, it's the new ones that are bad? Hmm, Behold the art of pleasing everyone! Ok, i have some questions: How do you decide what's little controversy? Doesn't that encourage people who are opposed to religious symbols to make as much controversy about them as possible? And how do you tell if the new display is intended to advance a modern religious agenda? And what's a modern religious agenda exactly? How does it differ from an old religious agenda? Does anybody know? Look, either ban it or allow it, but don't try to reach a compromise, because neither side is interested in one really, and by this ruling you are just pissing them off. You guys are the supreme court for God's sake. Stop being stupid!
