Re: SCOTUS can't get anything right lately

What's up with the Supremes? Corporations are persons and have rights to speech? Now they're exempt from fraud via arbitration? It's like they've all been dropped on their heads.

As much as I don't like the result of the ruling, it was the right ruling. There wasn't a constitutional issue here, other than Federal law trumping State. (and it does) They were only ruling on the application of the extremely crappy Federal Arbitration law. Blame the bought-and-paid-for politicians who signed the stupid thing in the first place, not the court.

It is time for the SCOTUS to do the right thing instead of narrowly rule ignoring the obvious enormity of the abuse this will generate against the CITIZENS of the USA.

You mean ignore the law? If this is so bad get new federal law passed banning this practice.

If Scalia and Alito can be so outspoken about things that are obviously wrong but benefit their "friends" maybe they could be as outspoken and bring debate about such terrible laws damaging the American foundation of laws.

Are you really that dumb? Individual voters can't contribute that much money to political campaigns. Organizations like the EFF struggle to get funding. Meanwhile, the corporations donate MILLIONS to the corrupt politicians. Who do you think they're going to listen to?

That is irrelevant, Supreme court made right decision because law didn't prohibit arbitration.

So legal = right? I guess that means that slavery was ok as long as it was legal...

It's not the job of the Supreme Court to decide what's right, it's their job to rule on the law. Nothing more, nothing less. Laws are supposed to be changed by Congress, not by the Court.

Until slavery was prohibited, yes unfortunately slavery was legal for some period.
