"Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote for a majority that said it is up to the states and Congress to decide who has a right" What is not only annoying but pure unadulterated horseshit is scotus's flipflopping on states' rights whenever it suits their essentially fascist corporate masters. Scotus can't support basic justice by requiring defendant's right to all available evidence, but they can insert their prickheaded opinion between a state, a patient, and a patient's doctor when it suits them. How much does this have to do with helping states like Mississippi head off lawsuits by DNA exonerated defendants? Who, besides me, is tired of contrived rationalizations by scotus like "you can't sue the gov't. because in a democracy you are the gov't. Can't sue yourself. What a fucking joke this court and this gov't. are. Cheney and Wackenhut are celebrating.

Holy crap, there's a lot here Sam.

DNA TESTING

This reminds me of the Prop I voted on a few years ago. They wanted to take a DNA sample from practically anyone arrested. I can't believe anyone would think that was acceptable. It passed overwhelmingly.

WRIST SLAP

The Pentagon analyst guy is a lucky sonofabitch. 12 and a half years prison to 10 months at a halfway house. Must not be as much of a problem when it's AIPAC he colluded with.

ABC AND OBAMA

I can't wait to see his explanation of what bullshit this "public option" really is after it's been nearly gutted. Single-payer has left the building.

BERNIE

I signed his petition

BARNEY

More power to him! Unfortunately, it has as much chance as single-payer health care.
