10th Fans The Supremes Will Support You

The 10th Amendment, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people," lets States try to get away with uncivilized behavior hearkening back to the antebellum days.   Have you noticed that state's rights is a major issue in the old and new confederacy?  State's rights seems to be a way of saying "civil rights, my ass."

The Confederacy will get a boost from Roberts and the Catholic Robes over gay marriage.  Instead of doing the right thing, they will do the wrong thing--for the day glow Jesus crowd and GOP voter/donors--and decide against the right for gays to marry and the right to have those marriages recognized in all states.  I don't think has this court, had it been the one  seated in 1967, would have ended miscegenation laws.

Oh, well, since only about one third of us vote in every federal and state election, the Courts decision will stand.  I assume it will be a boneheaded one and given voting behavior it will stand.  Yes, per the voting majority we have exactly the nation they desire.  Is it what you desire?

A question on the question of gay marriage

Of course the Supremes may surprise me and support human rights.  I'm prepared to be disappointed.
