I know my post says that Mr. Roberts is like a two-headed rat snake.
That appellation is more apt.
First the turtle article, then what I wrote:
Two-headed turtle hatches at San Antonio zoo

SAN ANTONIO—A two-headed turtle has hatched at the San Antonio Zoo and officials have named her Thelma and Louise.
The female Texas cooter arrived June 18 and will go on display Thursday at the zoo's Friedrich Aquarium.
Zoo spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike (van SKYKE') said Wednesday that the two-headed turtle appears healthy and is able to swim and walk. She says experts at the zoo don't foresee any health issues for Thelma and Louise, named for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning road movie of the same name.
The San Antonio Zoo is no stranger to two-headed reptiles. The facility was home to a two-headed Texas rat snake named Janus from 1978 until the creature's death to 1995.
The Supreme Court is making decisions that are those of a Lowly Court.
The blue-eyed, boyish-looking bureaucrat/Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is not a racist, but his recent vote shows him continuing to reside cozily in the pockets of the rich.
He showed his bias for the rich and powerful when he voted for the Citizens United case.
The following letter expresses my disdain for this Chief (In)Justice:
Letter: Supreme Court a disgrace
Posted: 06/28/2013 01:24:14 AM PDT
The U.S. Supreme Court already earned its place in infamy by its decision in the Citizens United case which allowed corporations to buy elections with unlimited amounts of political contributions. It has now reinforced its position as the worst Supreme Court in history by gutting Affirmative Action and The Voting Rights Act of 1965.
These decisions, all based on false premises, e.g. "a corporation is a person," and "voter discrimination has been largely eliminated in the U.S." and specious reasoning will cripple, if not destroy, our democracy. Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Thomas and Kennedy are in fact driven by hubris as asserted by Justice Ginsberg in her dissent, rather than any love or respect for that democracy. They are a national disgrace.

The U.S. Congress---a cantankerous body of invertebrates---won’t do anything about this disgrace.
The white, wealthy, right-wing GOP is hungrily licking its foul (fowl) lips in anticipation of getting back in the saddle at future elections.
Thanks for the memories.
