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.
