  • Judges are not supposed to vote their politics, this court should be ashamed, its the first to ever do so, this will go down as the most outrageous and laughable minded court in history. What they have decided on major issues will come back to haunt them and destroy the very fabric of this country and our constitution, I have no respect for the conservative appointees. especially Thomas and Scalia, they have no business on the bench, they are not a articulate or even in the ball park , when it comes to making sound rational decisions, they are lower than earthworms and their intellectual capacity is even lower than that, They severely dishonour themselves their families and the country and are a embarrassment.
