Court Of No Appeal

We currently are remembering the 70th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Brown vs Board of Education which ended the era of segregation. Of course, it only legally ended this practice which is still alive and well decades after the decision. But, at least, we once had justices on the Supreme Court who were interested in justice. Rosalina Cuellar de Osorio was an immigrant from Salvador and has been waiting for a decade to get a visa. When she began the wait, her 13 year old son was in line with mom. Now, that the boy is age, 21, the Supreme Court ruled he had to go to the back of the line and continue his wait–until the 22nd century?

In another decision, the Supreme Court ruled that a state law which bars lawsuits after ten years have passed are simply being legal. Thus, people who drank contaminated water can just head to the Emergency Room. Oh, among those complaining about the water were Marines who had been at Camp Lejeune where they were poisoned. Look at the bright side: they did not die in combat. So, at least they will die at home surrounded by loved ones.
