The highest court in the country has flopped fish-belly upward in the ugliest ongoing exhibition of anti-Constitutional cowardice since Franklin Socialist Roosevelt threatened to pollute the power and privilege of that pompous panel by adding additional arbiters. The black-robed jurists are now nothing more than submissive enablers for their fellow freedom-defiling federalcrats, supine before the power of the political Mafiosi.
The toadying began in earnest in 2003 with Campaign Finance Deform, when the jaded Justices hand-delivered Congress the "right" to ban political speech.
No part of the Constitution is easier to read and comprehend than the First Amendment. Even Hollywood's artsy airhead idealists can understand it. There are no hairs to split, no words to parse, no meanings to interpret. And yet . . .
"Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech."
Congress made a law abridging the freedom of speech.
The loftiest legalcrats in the land said, "Go right ahead."

Was that merely a test case? No public outcry, no blood in the streets, no mass movements for freedom as occurred in several once-Soviet serfdoms by people with more backbone than Americans.
Green light for the US Supine Court.
May 2005: for years, cattlemen have been coerced into coughing up cash to subsidize the starry eyes of Ag Department media mogul wannabes. You've heard their catchy commercials: "Beef, it's what's for dinner."
After the robed rogues ruled, the bovine buyline will have to be, "Beef, it's what we're forced to swallow." That's because the Benchwarmers defined a buck-a-cow theft by agricrats as "a valid program of government speech."
Huh? There is no such Constitutional incantation as "government speech." There is only "speech." There is no Constitutional right for bureaucrats to coerce cattle raisers or conduct image campaigns. The Constitution does not authorize anything called "The Agriculture Department." But these robed robbers have their own logic: if two wrongs don't make a Constitutional right, maybe three or four will.
Scratch freedom of association. Liberty-Loathers 2, People 0.
Libertarians, whether of the civil or political or philosophical sort, continued to be horror-struck by the Halls of Injustice. In a dazzling display of contradiction, the Lofty Legal Lords decided that wine grown in one state could be shipped anywhere in the realm without falling afoul of the Constitution's Commerce Clause, while a simple weed called cannabis couldn't be shipped from a backyard garden through the back door of the gardener's house without the wrath of the Jackboots descending upon the hapless harvester.
June 2005: Drug thugs, sayeth the Supremos, may persecute pain-ridden people who puff pot on doctors' say-so. Screw state medical marijuana laws.
Let's face it. The unconstitutional drug war is nothing more than a modern WPA program --busywork to keep narcs and SWAT-bots and prison union dons and a nation full of power-perverted bureautards eternally employed and therefore permanently dependent upon their force-adoring bureaubosses. The fact that the Drug War, pushed by pharmacy-fascist fundamentalists and their rent-a-crats, destroys more lives than the actual drugs is of no concern to these Justices who know no justice.

And now the eminent domain driven "public/private" partnership ploy is truly a SCAM -- Supreme Court Approved Mugging. The court's anti-property ruling means that penny ante pantywaist political lackeys can steal anybody's property anywhere and hand it over to their commercial co-conspirators for personal profit-making.
All people are created equal, but people with money, power, and noses firmly affixed to the buttcracks of their hired legistraitors are more equal than others.
As Ayn Rand so pointedly pointed out, "Without property rights, no other rights are possible."
The body count continues: Liberty-Loathers 4, People 0.
It's obvious to libertarians, if to no one else, that the Supremes have a continuing conflict of interest. They are biased in favor of BigGov. Virtually all of them have spent their entire lives permanently appended to the great national teat of taxation. From taxpaid public schools to taxpaid public -- or tax money controlled private -- universities, through the various layers of taxpaid "public service" from public defender to the DA's office and into the stair-step system of ever higher judgeships. Who among them has ever made a living on the basis of free market competition? Who among them has ever lived outside the coddling collective of the BigGov bubble?
They should be permanently recused from every case that comes before them.
The Constitution is dead. It exists only to serve as a pretext for the continued employment of airhead Supine Court appointees.
