Lest anyone doubt that America is now ruled by one dictator and an entire army of liberal court judges, we have only to look at the happenings this week to see who's running the store.
The Florida courts on Monday struck down the new law that would have required welfare recipients in that state to be drug tested before receiving state welfare benefits. The courts ruled requiring welfare applicants to be drug tested violated the "search and seizure" laws in the United States Constitution. They said asking applicants to be tested for drugs was too intrusive into the personal lives of welfare candidates. The judges refuse to consider the already sanctioned requirement that workers are routinely tested for drugs prior to being hired. They considered that a "voluntary act" by the prospective employee and had no relevance to the Florida welfare law.
Several months ago the Mexican Extremist Group, La Raza, teamed with the American Civil Liberties Union to contest Arizona's Prop 100, which denies bail for illegal felons. While the appeal was struck down by the Arizona Supreme Court, the ultra liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed to hear the case on appeal. The ACLU and La Raza argue that denying bail to illegal Mexicans is a violation of their rights. The state argues that allowing child molesters, armed robbers, felony hit and run prisoners, rapists, and those charged with manslaughter should be denied bail because of they are high risk to flee back into Mexico to avoid a long prison term. La Raza argues that illegal felons are no more likely to flee than any other American criminal.
On January 1st the Boy Scouts of America finally relented to unyielding liberal pressure to admit gays into their organization. Anticipating this decision, over 80 percent of Boy Scout troops who are sponsored by various church groups have seceded from the BSA and formed a separate organization called Trail Life, USA. The newly formed organization will continue to oppose the gay life style. Headquartered in Florida, Trail Life, USA has already come under fire by the ACLU who are preparing to seek an injunction prohibiting the admission of gays into the new organization. When an AP reporter queried the ACLU about this, the ACLU stated they will continue to fight sexual discrimination even when these Trail Life troops are sponsored by a religious organization who follow the tenets of the Bible.
Over the last couple of decades it has become quite clear that the courts, and not the voice of the American people, will rule the day and make the final decisions on what we are to believe and how we are to live our lives. Prop 8, which banned gay marriage in the state of California, was passed overwhelmingly by California voters. Then, the 9th Circuit overruled the people's vote and told voters to go to hell. The same thing happened when laws banning driver's licenses for illegals were passed.
Then just last year the United States Supreme Court ruled that our dictator can mandate that a citizen buy a product or service if big government demands it. Thus, we are now forced by rule of law to buy Obamacare for ourselves…and for 30 million others who can afford a big screen TV, cable, and an I-Phone but aren't willing to pay for their own health care.
Sad. Damned Sad.
