This Is The America That The Supreme Court Gave Us As They Used The Bill Of Rights To Empower People Who Are Killing Us And Lying About The Murders Of Children

I won't have anything specific to say about the mass murder in Las Vegas last night except to say that it will join the long list of ever dimming memories of horrific gun murders in the United States under the Bill of Rights which doesn't only not protect us in the way the preamble of the Constitution promises, it is an active means of robbing us of everything that it gave as a guarantee:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

And, now, in 2017, largely through the Supreme Court using provisions of that Constitution to empower the Republican-fascist party and its various factions, notably, this morning, the gun industry and those it has successfully rendered paranoid, more than fifty more Americans are gunned down by a single gunman using the products sold to him with the blessing of the Supreme Court and the Republican-fascists in government and on courts.  

Far from protecting innocent Americans, the Constitution and, specifically, the interpretation of the Bill of Rights, has protected Alex Jones' "right" to lie about the children massacred by a single gunman with legally owned guns while dangerously insane to his pathological audience.  It did nothing to protect those children, it put the gun into the hands of their murderer.  

That is among the "something ain't right" that Jay Semko sang about too long ago for it to not have been heard and acted on. 

Nina Totenberg talked about the new Court term and how with Neil Gorsuch on it and the impending retirement of Anthony Kennedy things are going to get worse and worse.  Only she didn't say that last part.
