Surly,
Agreed.
You are welcome. If you could tack this on to FB to help give my forum some views, you will be helping another thick fingered clown.  ;D

Yes, I certainly qualify as an "anarchist" or "bleeding heart commie". WHY? Because I have the distinction of having organized a pilot's union (we got a national Labor Relations Board rep to come down and help us organize the official vote!) and promptly get fired for it! I was the ultimate "traitor" because I was Chief Pilot of that air taxi at the time. I'll blog that experience soon. It was quite an education in Nicole Foss's "real world" (the fake world that predatory, conscience free humans pretend is the real world). Voltaire wasn't far off the mark when he said that "Hell is other people."  >:(

By the way, wasn't that an eye opener about what Brandeis had to put up with from the McReynolds
Quote
McReynolds refused to speak to Louis Brandeis, the first Jew on the Court, for three years following Brandeis's appointment and, when Brandeis retired in 1939, did not sign the customary dedicatory letter sent to justices on their retirement. He habitually left the conference room whenever Brandeis spoke.
?

McReynolds claimed to be a Christian! 

In Brandeis' shoes, I would have been hard pressed to not offer McReynolds a knuckle sandwich! >:(

And that part about President Wilson "kicking McReynolds upstairs to the Supreme Court" was priceless.  ;D 
Quote
..it was also accepted that Wilson only appointed McReynolds to the Supreme Court because he did not want to work with him anymore.


Isn't it absolutely TRAJIC that several decades of potentially progressive American jurisprudence were through under a bus by a world class bigot just because a President didn't have the balls to FIRE that hate filled, intolerant piece of human fecal coliform?  :(

Wilson knew the score and was simply afraid to rock the boat in the cesspool of American power politics.
Quote
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States —in the fields of commerce and manufacturing—are afraid of somebody. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

Another bought and paid for COWARD with a big vocabulary. So it goes.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
