The Sun Over Texas

The U.S. Supreme Court late Friday rejected the Texas case against four battleground states that President Trump called “the big one.”

The court said Texas lacked standing under Article III of the Constitution.

“Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.”

The Court’s “reasoning” disgusts Mike, who writes:

This is as if I walked into an astronomy classroom prepared to argue that the removal of the sun from its position in space and being placed one light year farther away from earth would significantly and negatively impact human survival and the SCIENCE COURT told me that I would not be allowed to make that argument because I didn’t first demonstrate that the current location of the sun relative to the earth was a significant and positive factor in the survival of the human race.  


There is no need to demonstrate, first, to a human with a working brain and at least marginal understanding of the extant universe, that the current location of the sun is a significant and positive factor in the survival of the human race.   

Neither did I demonstrate that the sun goes around the earth and appears to “rise” in the east and “set” in the west.  Some things just are. … You know, like we all know what UP is and can reasonably explain it to a thinking person.  Yes, it’s more complex than this, but, as far as working knowledge goes, well, some of us are just educated beyond our capacity to understand and explain, such as to the extent that most of us are not as stupid as an apparent silent majority of the U.S. SUPREME COURT.  


I know not what course others may choose, or be forced to endure, but the courts seem no longer an option.

Ah, but were they ever? American courts, from the lowliest traffic one to the Supremes, have been utterly corrupt for decades if not centuries.
