Now here is something that could be anticipated

Hey, some decisions came down from the Supreme Court yesterday — but not that one. And look, another pro-business decision from the Roberts’ Court:

The Supreme Court on Thursday set aside indecency sanctions imposed by the Federal Communications Commission on two television networks, but sidestepped for the second time a decision on whether the agency’s regulation of the airwaves violates free speech rights.

Oh by all means, let’s avoid actually ruling on the law, but there’s no way we can let major businesses have to actually pay a fine  — and hey we’re here today, let’s kick a public employee union too.

Yes, on principle I am happy that if, for some very bizarre reason I am ever invited on “Reliable Sources”, I can fulfill my dream of saying “Fuck You, Howie” repeatedly until I am dragged from the studio without Time-Warner being unduly punished.

But it is the other trend that is most worrisome. In the six plus years of the Roberts’ Supreme Court you could be Mordecai Brown and still count the decisions that were not-pro corporation on one hand — with enough left over to flip the bird.

Corporation’s are not just people, they are Supreme Beings.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
