  •  Like they wouldn't rule that George W. Bush (0+ / 0-)

    was entitled to the Presidency because counting votes would violate his equal protection rights?  Or that bribery is free speech?  Or that corporations are people?

    If your position that any possible ruling would be legitimate is defensible, then it must be true that they can legitimately rule that it's legal for themselves to receive payment for deciding in favor of a given litigant.  After all, it's only your opinion that it's not legal, right?

    •  as was explained to you the other day (0+ / 0-)

      corporations in this country were given "personhood" well over a century ago--in 1886 or 1888, or 1819, depending on the case you use.

      •  And black people were denied personhood (0+ / 0-)

        before that.  So if the Supreme Court were to reach back to that precedent and rule the same, are you going to claim it's totally lawful and we must simply accept it without attempting to impeach them?

        And you didn't answer my question.  If they ruled it legal for themselves to accept bribes, would it be legal?  If they ruled it legal for themselves to commit murder, would it be legal?  If a Republican filed a lawsuit against you for existing and they ruled that a Republican has a Constitutional right to kill you for being liberal, would that be the law?
