  •  Imagine, Scalia accuses Blacks of enjoying a (10+ / 0-)

    RACIAL ENTITLEMENT to voting.  Gee, so that's how we had slavery, segregation, Jim Crow Laws and now voter suppression laws.  Those damn Blacks tricked us, they always had the upper hand:  RACIAL ENTITLEMENT, don't you know.  And yes, we need to stop this by overturning the Voting Rights Act because congress is not able to do it so the United States Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of the United States of America will distinguish themselves by doing away with this evil law, this drag on our democracy, the veritable perversion of  America.

      the way you and I do.  They see it differently.  Money is a form of free speech.  And speech results in votes so it's a fact of life that the rich (including those special people, corporations) get more votes than the rest of us.

      So what if 220,000 were disenfranchised in Florida?  So what if Republican's REDMAP project disenfranchised millions of voters to give Republicans control of the House?  All's fair in love politics and war.

      Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.

      •  This statement is out of the park for explaining (0+ / 0-)

        differences in our democracy.  I want to lift it as is and spread it around everywhere.  Finally, we see the glimer of definition.  What is our democarcy for?    What are you for Helpless?   I am here to cast my unfettered vote with all other  Americans, no more disenfranchisement.

        Rahm Emanuel deals with many deaths due to gun shot and administers a huge American city.  Is tough oh ya and so is the president.    Which part of him(Emanuel)   is an ass?  

    •  This absolutely SLAYS me n/t (0+ / 0-)

      Let me explain the order of things to you. There's the aristocracy, the upper class, the middle class, working class, dumb animals, waiters, creeping things, head lice, people who eat packet soup, then you. -- Gareth Blackstock, Chef!
