I'm Really Going To Get My Passport This Week, Really

Thanks to Shutterwi for this encouraging, up-lifting, blah, blah, blah.  Maybe thanks isn't the correct word.  Oh, well, go read & it's OK if you weep, cry, swear, throw something, but no kicking the dog, eating the goldfish, or putting the horse up wet, & I mean it.
In case after case, the five hard-core Republicans of the Roberts Court have been chopping furiously at the hard-earned legal rights of workers, consumers, voters, and others who dare to challenge the power of big business elites to reign over us, both politically and economically. There has been way too little public attention focused on (much less a sustained political challenge to) what has become a spectacular abuse of government power. A survey last year by the Pew Center found that nearly three-fourths of Americans have no idea who John Roberts is. Eight percent named Thurgood Marshall as the chief justice (and I certainly wish he was, even though he's been dead for 18 years).
