Cowards of the Court: Mysandry and the Constitution

The Supreme Court did in fact fail to address the actual issue this past week regarding the Lautenberg Domestic Violence Law. They approved ex post facto law, and, the taking of rights based upon less than felony behaviors.

Anyone that has the temerity to think that the current make up of the Supreme Court will, in practice and fact defend the Constitution and it’s base principles is quite simply delusional. They are a bunch of politically correct kiss asses.

Since I am more than aware some will view this as a rant against women I need to state unequivocally that I believe that Domestic violence is a very real problem. My problem is with how it is addressed, and dealt with. Men are overwhelmingly brought up on charges of domestic violence more often as compared to women. Further, that when women are charged, the implication in nearly all cases is changed and they are ordered into “parenting classes” or some other such nonsense. Thereby allowing them to continue to be full citizens, as opposed to men convicted for the same crimes. Note please, that I am throughout this op/ed  addressing non-felony domestic violence convictions. When women are in fact charged in the very same situations that men are, probation, and restoration of rights is common. When it is a man? Probation is de facto only an available alternative if the man is a celebrity, or related to powerful individuals. That is called sexism for those that are incapable of rational thought.

The issue of ex post facto law strikes at the very basis of Anglo American jurisprudence. Changing the rules after the game has already been played is immoral. Approving such a thing is also immoral, and that is precisely what our Supreme Court did. Utilitarianism has no place in a republic where people are protected from the tyranny of the majority. At least in theory that is the presumption.

I have no faith whatsoever in the Supreme Court when it comes to protecting the people of our nation. Our alternative then appears to be seeking redress through our locally elected representatives at the state level, and or through the affirmative action by state Governors, as in commuting sentences or the more difficult pardon process.

What then is needed to rectify the situation? Stay tuned folks, because this is getting too long winded as is.

    Unfortunately, you are quite correct about the Supreme Court, I am sad to say. This ruling is a red flag concerning the makeup of the Court, and it is only going to get worse under Obama with his liberal litmus tests. We must be living under the Chinese curse–‘May you live in interesting times.’

    I agree and furthermore relying on the Supreme Court to uphold our rights is like insisting that Ginsberg is the more beautiful woman in the entire world… :)

    Or should I :( instead…

    When law and morality contradict each other the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his sense of morality or losing his respect for the law. — Frederick Bastiat

    “You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy… The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal.” — Thomas Jefferson, 1820

    It is difficult to maintain the illusion that we are interpreting a Constitution, rather than inventing one. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia, in his minority dissenting opinion in Nebraska vs. Carhart

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’, because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. — Thomas Jefferson

    “We must realize that today’s Establishment is the new George III. Whether it will continue to adhere to his tactics, we do not know. If it does, the redress, honored in tradition, is also revolution.” — Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, 1970

    Great quotes Paladin, also serious things to be thinking about.

  6. Paladin Says:

    Thanks Patrick. That’s what I hope people start doing, really thinking about the concepts of Freedom for a change!

    Arlen Spector, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe are proven Rino’s and not conservatives at all

  8. Patrick Sperry Says:

    Paladin I also hope for that to happen. However, I think the people in America right now, at least a lot of them? Are quite literally stoned by this push for government to control their lives. If you looked at my predictions for the new administration you would see that I don’t have a lot of hope for the people of America. What I do have hope for, is America. When we first fought against King George, only something like ten percent of Americans were for independence. How many are out there now..? I am thinking that between Conservatives and Philosophical Libertarians?

    jarnco? If you were a regular reader you would well know that I have posted several times about those two miscreants. Look up “The Spector of Evil” for a start.

    Both are worthless Americans, and much less as leaders of Americans.
