This week at the American Constitution Society national convention, Senator Franken gave quite the speech about the direction of the present court. The whole speech is worth watching or reading.

The nature of the speech was capsulized with these statements:

If you have a credit card, if you watch TV, if you file insurance claims, if you work – in other words, if you participate in American daily life at all – then you interact with corporations that are more powerful than you are.

The degree to which those corporations’ rights are protected over yours, well, that’s extremely relevant to your life.

And in case after case after case, the Roberts Court has put not just a thumb, but a fist, on the scale in favor of those corporations.

There is a lot more to this speech.

Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) a friend of the consumer.

    Thank you for you e-mail regarding changes to the law on immigrants that you support. Your support is perplexing since why would you support keeping people here that are braking the law. There are so many that would not consider coming here and violating our laws that would be willing to follow existing procedures.

  2. Sorry, I'm not sure what email you are talking about. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
