Judgment at Nuremburg trials:

 Aggression is "the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

 The admonition of the chief prosecutor for the United States, Robert Jackson: "The record on which we judge these defendants is the record on which history will judge us tomorrow. To pass these defendants a poisoned chalice is to put it to our own lips as well."

 Guatemala, Nicaragua, Chile, Cuba, El Salvador, Honduras, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Palestine, Vietnam, Congo, Cambodia, Libya, etc.,  just to name the countries that come to mind whose governments we have overthrown, whose landscapes we have devastated, whose citizens we have murdered with our armies, our CIA assassins, our paid thugs, our bombs, our napalm, our drones. And don’t forget the instant incineration of 100,000 non-combatants and prolonged death of another 100,000 in Hiroshima in 1945.

Resolved: the Supreme Court of the United States shall hereafter be known as the Hobby Lobby until such time as this institution, inimical to the freedom of the people, is abolished from the face of the Earth forever.

Justices Scalia and Alito have both received the same gift from the Hobby Lobby: a Hobby Horse on wheels. Both are pulled by 3 vulnerable young naked women chained to a Hobby Horse, who are being whipped by the in-Justices. Being brutally In-Jured by an In-Justice. Fantasy?  You bet. But not by a very long shot.  Why haven't we seen a cartoon in one of the major newspapers showing this image as yet?  What has happened to all the intrepid political cartoonists of yesteryear?

 They buying of votes in American elections has always been a problem, but now that it is legal with today’s Supreme Court decision, democracy in America is effectively dead. You may have thought that democracy in America was dead or dying, and perhaps it was. But today, the Supreme Court with the McCutcheon decision effectively confirmed and ratified the death of democracy.  Prior to today, there were at least some restrictions of the buying of elections. But today the Supreme Court effectively made the buying of elections legal, thus making a mockery of democracy. Now that corporations and fabulously wealthy persons have no restrictions imposed on them on the giving of money to candidates, they very effectively control who gets nominated for office and who gets elected to office. This is infinitely more effective than the old-style Tammany Hall buying and arm-twisting for individual votes.  The Supreme Court justices who voted with the majority on Citizens United and MacCutcheon are traitors to America. They ought to be rounded up by the Executive Branch and thrown in jail.  This would not be provoking a Constitutional crisis: the crisis has already been amply provoked by the Supreme Court’s dealing the death blow to democracy.  Eternal shame on the justices who voted with the majority!
