Maybe Justice Anton Scalia's death yielded some goodwill after all!
I have long been a critic of this current Supreme Court calling it the most reactionary Supreme Court in ages...Mainly because of it's inclusion of Clarence "Uncle" Thomas and the late Anton Scalia...
With Scalia now deceased...perhaps the Supremes mellowed on a racially sensitive issue..
Yesterday ,The U.S. Supreme Court left in place a lower court's ruling that said Virginia's Republican-led legislature unlawfully considered race when drawing U.S. congressional districts by packing black voters into one of them.
The court, down a justice following February's death of Antonin Scalia, ruled 8-0 against current and former Republican U.S. House of Representatives members who had challenged a June 2015 lower court ruling that threw out the district.
The court said the Republican lawmakers did not have legal standing to bring the case.
The focus of the case was on the composition of the majority-black House district held by Democrat Bobby Scott, the only black member of Virginia's congressional delegation.
Republican legislatures across the country have been trying to change districts in order to create winning districts for themselves...It is both unconstitutional and criminal...All the more reason that the average man on the street, both Black and White believe the system is rigged...
One more reason that both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's outsider status is so appealing to so many...
This time the Supremes got it right and as surprised as I am...I give credit when and where it is deserved.

A month ago several Republicans were uniting against Donald Trump.....Isn't it funny that with every coming day more and more of them are falling in line behind him? People are basically hypocritical aren't they? I'm not surprised by this at all...Where is the talk of a brokered convention now?? (Crickets) Exactly....That talk is growing silent....They still don't really like him or want him...but they don't have any choice now...for better or worse...He's their guy!

One morning the husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a nap.
The wife, to escape her snoring husband, decided to take the boat out.
Since she was not familiar with the lake, she rowed out to the middle, anchored the boat, and started reading her book.
Along came the sheriff in his boat. He pulled up alongside and said, "Good morning, ma'am. What are you doing here?"
"I'm Reading a book," she replied, thinking, "Is this guy blind or what?"
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informed her.
"But, Officer, I'm not fishing. You can see that, surely." she said .
"But you have all the equipment, ma'am. I'll have to write you up." he said.
"If you do that, I will charge you with rape," returned the irate woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," the sheriff objected.
"That's true; but you have all the equipment." she said.
THE MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads.
Have a great weekend everybody!

Every year Monroe would say, "Martha, I'd like to ride in that airplane."
And every year Martha would say, "I know, Monroe, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."
This one year Monroe and Martha went to the fair and Monroe said, "Martha, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance." Martha replied,
"Monroe, that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars."
The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I"ll make you a deal. I"ll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's ten dollars."
Monroe and Martha agreed and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard.
He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word. They land and the pilot turns to Monroe, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."
Monroe replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars."
EVERYBODY HAVE A SUPER GROOVY WEEKEND!

I was hoping to never have to write another post about this attention whore....George Zimmerman...but he just can't stop grabbing the nation's attention.
The news today is that he is going to auction off the pistol he used to kill Trayvon Martin with...
He says "It's a piece of history"
What he should say is "I need the money and I need attention."
He is the most despicable human being imaginable.. and he doesn't deserve another paragraph of my time....or yours!
