Andrew Jackson just ignored the Supreme Court.

John Jay,and the court, ruled that the Cherokee removal in 1835 was unconstitutional.

Jackson moved ahead anyway. He said they could enforce it, if they dared.

That's what America always was. Unaccountable power.

Now it's the judiciary.

The executive can do far more damage if they run amok.

Be glad we have no Jackson today.

The Supreme Court itself is telling us that it's not the final word on anything. If you won't pay attention to established precedent then you may as well drop acid during deliberations and see what you come out with.

The Right subverted the Supreme Court under the conviction that the Supreme Court is the final word on nothing. For those of you who may be religious, the Right is also subverting the Bible under the theory that it's the final word on nothing for Christians.

Constitution and Bible are now props useful for a minority of often vicious people to get what they want.

Welcome to Hell. Religious people often say that we humans make it for ourselves.

.... unless they do a ruling the dems like, as with Roberts on the ACA.

" unless they do a ruling the dems like, as with Roberts on the ACA."

Republicans threatened to overturn the ACA zillions of times, until they got control and finally brought it to a vote. Thanks to Republican John McCain, it failed.

You can't blame Roberts. You're the dog that caught the car.
