That Was The Week That Was

Thank God it's Friday.  I don't think I could take any more of this week.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court led by John Roberts (hack, spit) said that plain language in legislation means nothing, in their 6-3 decision upholding Obamacare.  The phrase "established by the state" means nothing.  Worse, it lets the IRS ignore written law and administer the code any way they see fit.

Today, in a more narrow 5-4 ruling, the Supremes said that same-sex marriage is legal everywhere.  Mr. Justice Kennedy (hack, spit) wrote the majority opinion.

Legally this week, the world turned upside-down.  I'm sure that there will be plenty of analysis and commentary to keep us occupied, but in the meantime I'm going to have a drink.  Or several.

Let freedom ring.
