Reblog: Why We Gotta Talk About Court Reform–Now!

I took a course in civics in the 9th grade. I learned in that course about the three separate branches of the U.S. government, the executive, the legislative, and the judicial. Each branch had a unique delineation of authority and responsibility, commonly referred to as the separation of powers. Each branch independent of each other, with varied duties and roughly equal.

And then I read Annie’s excellent, well researched piece yesterday about a far-right renegade federal judge who is about to turn everything I learned in my 9th grade civics class topsy-turvy, and how a single wrong-headed individual backed by unenlightened self-interests can destroy the whole separation of powers between the branches of government that our Founding Fathers established in the Constitution of the United States of America.

Please read Annie’s post. This is important.

    Thanks very much, Fandango. The runaway judge was supposed to announce his ruling last week. Could the huge negative response to the case affect him at all? One can only hope…

    Fandango: I wanted you and your readers to know that I just added an update including a link to a new Slate article that’s intended to allay our concerns about how far-reaching the potential impact of this single judge’s ruling may be. I always try to be positive, but still I worry.
