    that basically the court said "political punishment of opponents is not illegal".  It's clear that the gerrymandering, the GOP ability to pack courts, and the secret agenda of the Koch/Americans for Prosperity/etc has worked well for them.  I am angry beyond words.

      right along with you.  I read that same statement you referenced about "punishment of opponents is not illegal".  The decision reached by the appeals court is couched in very slanted language and certainly does not reflect well at all on those who wrote it.  It seemed about as "in your face" as it could be.  I am sick at heart.

        for the diary.  It's beyond troubling, particularly in light of the GOP favorable gerrymandering ruling in the courts.  Despite knowing they secretly redistricted, didn't allow anyone to have input, rushed it through without discussion, and then told the court to go pound sand when they refused to cough up the documents regarding the gerrymandering, the court rewarded their sleaze by allowing them to keep 99% of their loot.


        There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
