“Problem Solved!”

The conservatives of the Supreme Court sure reflected their rich life experiences in discussing the Voting Rights Act yesterday.

Of course Antonin Scalia self-proclaimed “originalist” showed that his original thought ends with whatever he heard on FoxNews last week.

Justice Antonin Scalia suggested that the continuation of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act represented the “perpetuation of racial entitlement,” saying that lawmakers had only voted to renew the act in 2006 because there wasn’t anything to be gained politically from voting against it.

That, again, comes from a guy who says legislative intent is bunk.

Something is certainly bunk.

And then there was this gem from Roberts.

“Is it the government’s submission that citizens in the South are more racist than citizens not in the South?” Roberts asked.

My suggested response may be inappropriate, but no less than Robert’s statement:

“You bet your Cracker-Ass their governments are, Mr. Chief Justice.”

The words “Slavery”; “Jim Crow”; “Miscegenation Laws” mean anything to you? Let alone what was going on in Florida this November?

Oh and about the South.

There’s a statue now.

See, problem solved.

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 .
