Alito ought to be taken to task

In his SOTU speech last night Obama blasted the Supreme Court's decision to allow our election process to be financed by corporations and special interest groups:

“Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests -- including foreign companies -- to spend without limit in our elections.”

Activist Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words "No, that's not true." At least he didn't scream it out... but the television cameras caught it. It's all over the tv today and of course the commentary by the so called reporters and journalists reeks of partisanship and a total lack of understanding about fascism.

What does Alit0 mean that it isn't true. Of course it's true. This is America Inc. He ought to get on the television and explain himself.

I think it's time to review the whole Supreme Court. These guys aren't elected. They are selected by the sitting president and the congress critters who are in office at the time may confirm them. Most of the congress critters were already beholden to special interest groups and not the American citizens. Maybe we need to vote for justices too... but then again that opens up another can of worms... the corporations will buy those elections too.

Will we need a bloody revolution to stop the madness? There's one little problem about who will be on what side....
