Supreme Arrogance

Further and irrefutable evidence that the United States Supreme Court is grievously out of control came this week in the landmark case United States v. Booker. In ruling that the Federal Sentencing Guidelines were merely advisory to federal judges, a five-justice majority fashioned the Sentencing Guidelines regime as Congress would have enacted had they known the correct constitutional doctrine.

The Court reconstitutes itself as a 5 person, national legislature, for life, under the legal doctrine of "woulda, shoulda, coulda."

Scotty, beam us all up.... Quick!
