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.

The court simply can't do that. It is Congress' job to legislate. The only time the court can strike down laws that have been passed is if they violate the US Constitution. And unfortunately, the framers forgot to include the "Citizens shouldn't be ass raped by corporations" Amendment.

It is a matter of conscience that in their position they should pursue. The fact that they choose not to is similar to witnessing a murder and not doing anything about it. There are principles that made this country the shining beacon for the world. Being in a position to defend those and choosing not to is treason.

A military mindset is simple and not clouded with all these "interpretations" that are excuses to not rise to the challenge to do the right thing.

I was ordered in 1989 in a Communist state to fire on civilians. My allegiance was to the "country, people and to the president". I ordered the fucking zampolit out before I would blow his brain out with my AK47 and chose to defend with my tank the people that were protesting.

As MLK I believe said "it is always the right time to do the right thing".

As much as I hate this ruling, it seems to be a correct application of the commerce clause and federal rights > state rights. We should focus on having the Federal Arbitration Act repealed/changed to actually require both parties to OPT IN, and not forbid a company to refuse to do business with a consumer if said consumer decides not to opt in.

yeah, I have a problem with authority when it is criminal in nature. I am sure that eventually will get me killed, but as my drill sergeant used to say there is a difference dying for something vs dying for nothing.

Then you are a traitor and will be hung.
