I wish I had made it up. It's from one of the comments I read about this horrible ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court
And states wasting no time putting it into practice.
The astonishing thing is the contrast between this and Roberts's position on Obama's healthcare plan (just a year ago this week), in which he declined to overrule a legislated decision.
here's an update of "Here's To The State Of Mississippi" by Phil Ochs that I wrote today:(Tune-for those too young to remember-"Here's To The State of Mississippi")
1)Here's to the Court of Justice Roberts Where underneath their gavels, the devil draws no lines, if you drag their brutal rulings, nameless bodies you will find. All the big checks from the Koch boys have financed a thousand crimes. And the calendar is lying when it reads the present time
(Chorus) Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of. Justice Roberts find yourself another country to be part of.
2)Here's to the states of Justice Roberts They're imposing anti-voting laws as fast as you can blink, and then repealing civil rights without a pause to think, and women's choice is chipped away by men who smirk and wink. Their souls are like a sewer and for miles we smell the stink.
3)Here's to the party of Justice Roberts They see the future coming, and they try to beat it back.Against the rising Rainbow, they are massed for the attack. The country that they used to know has vanished down the track.And now they can't be sure that God's not female, gay or black.
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of, Justice Roberts find yourself another country to be part of, Justice Alito find yourself another country to be part of, Justice Scalia find yourself another country to be part of, Justice Thomas find yourself another country to be part of, Justice Kennedy find yourself another country to be part of.
