Good Day World!
What happens when you have a person in a position of power and they’re a complete asshole?
Imagine someone responsible for making or breaking our laws and who is completely out of touch with reality. It’s scary, but it’s happening.
How do you go about declaring a magistrate appointed for life of unsound mind and thus unfit to serve?
That’s my question regarding Antonin Scalia, one of our chief justices in the Supreme Court, and a world-class jerk. Arguably one of the most visible members of the nine-member body charged with the decisive resolution of our republic’s most contentious legal matters, Scalia rejects the fact of evolution.
He doesn’t believe in Global Warming, although 97% of the scientists in the world do, and even Congress reluctantly acknowledged it’s a fact. He can’t be relied upon to adjudicate without prejudice and should be removed from the bench…period.
The fact is, Justice Scalia has Faith, Derangement Syndrome (FDS).
According to writer/editor JEFFREY TAYLER, “ …people with Faith, Derangement Syndrome (FDS) exhibit the following symptoms: unshakable belief in the veracity of manifest absurdities detailed in ancient texts regarding the origins of the cosmos and life on earth; a determination to disseminate said absurdities in educational institutions and via the media; a propensity to enjoin and even enforce (at times using violence) obedience to regulations stipulated in said ancient texts, regardless of their suitability for contemporary circumstances; the conviction that an invisible, omnipresent, omniscient authority (commonly referred to as “God”) directs the course of human and natural events, is vulnerable to propitiation and blandishments, and monitors individual human behavior, including thought processes, with an especially prurient interest in sexual activity.”
Here’s more evidence of Justice Scalia’s FDS-related impairment, at the website of the New Civil Rights Movement.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
