Dear Friends and Followers:
I don't usually comment on your political follies, but ...

Just my own opinion, but it seems to me that the conservative majority of the Supreme Court of the United States did something truly remarkable yesterday, even for that bunch of yahoos and corporate hacks: they administered a stinging rebuke to every living American.
First they rebuked the large majority of Americans—those who aren’t religious or prefer their religion confined to the home or to places of worship, who follow the words of the Gospel According to Matthew—Chapter Six, Verse Five: “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.” (KJV)
To those, the Court said, “Your First Amendment rights of the United States Constitution are second-rate.”
To religious zealots, it was worse. To them, the Court said, “Your enthusiasm is not enough to sustain your faith. It must be supported and nurtured by the government.”
I fear a time will come when you will regret this. But for now:
“By the rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down, yea, we wept
When we remembered Zion.” Psalms 137 (KJV)

Is it my imagination, or does this man look
more like Lou Costello every day? - C.W.
