There's hope for the U.S. yet

Well well well.  The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has finally joined the rest of us here in the 21st century.  For a while it looked like we were going further and further back in time. 

In all fairness it wasn't the whole court that was bent on living in the past.  Just the four conservatives and a fifth justice who is usually considered a 'swing' vote but lately he's been swinging right.

With last week's rulings it looks like there just might be hope.  First, the Affordable Care Act was given their support.  Second, it was determined that all states must allow people to marry whomever they want.

Definitely progress.  Too bad it didn't bite the bullet (no pun intended) with gun control.   Also its ruling regarding corporate political donations and independence is troubling.  But, hey, we have to take things a little at a time.

Now we need Scalia and Thomas to resign before Obama leaves office and then things will improve dramatically.

Note:  I won't be posting here again until after July 5th.  Taking a little break.  See you then.
