Is it possible to obtain equal justice under the law in the US? I say that it is not possible due to wealth and race. In Florida, George Zimmerman was able to kill a black male because of Florida’s stand your ground law, because of support for the Second Amendment and because it is always open season on black males. In Detroit, a white home owner shot a black female seeking help in the middle of the night. If the races were reversed, would our system of justice produce the same results? If a black male in Florida had shot and killed a white teenager or a black home owner in Detroit had shot a white female in the middle of the night when she sought help, what would be the result? Equal justice under the law? I doubt it. Until every citizen can expect and receive equal justice, then we still have work to do.
The dumbest reason to repeal Obamacare, at least so far, came out of the mouth of Utah’s own Mike Lee. We must repeal because it became law before some of us were members of Congress and could not vote on it. Using that reasoning, if it is reasoning, then whenever the membership of Congress changes, then all laws must be voted upon again. That would certainly keep our do-nothing Congress busy.
Repeal, repeal, repeal, ad infinitum
Failure, failure, failure, ad infinitum.
Obamcare is here to stay
Members of Congress must enroll
Boehner did enroll to demonstrate
How difficult it was enroll
Failure again–too easy by far
Saved money, but not face
John Boehner and allies point to failures
But never acknowledge successes.
GOP want this President to fail
They do all they can
To make it happen
Sorry, guys and girls of the Grand Old Party
Another failure–better luck next time.
How little could a do-nothing Congress do
If a do-nothing Congress did nothing?
How little would a do-nothing Congress do
If a do-nothing Congress would do nothing?
How little should a do-nothing Congress do
If a do-nothing Congress were paid to do nothing?
This Congress, now meeting occasionally in Washington, DC, is the gold standard in do-nothing Congresses. Having shut down the government for two weeks, Congress apparently has decided that it need not act as though the government has re-opened. If Congress cannot destroy our system of government, it will paralyze it as an alternative. Time to replace the obstructionists.
Ralph Nader is correct in this article about healthcare in Canada. My in-laws have told us the same story.
