An independent view on life.

John Paul Stevens, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

The former Supreme Court justice spent nearly 35 years there,  during which time he went from independent moderate to full-squish liberal.  He acted to limit the death penalty,  squelch official prayer in schools, establish gay rights,  promote racial equality and preserve legal abortion. He protected the rights of crime suspects and illegal immigrants facing
deportation.

I always thought he had little regard for the US. Constitution or for the American people.   His efforts were straight out of a liberal handbook.  I was pleased when he retired himself from the Court.   I am largely indifferent  to his death,  but I do hope that his stroke so incapacitated him that he didn’t realize what was happening.
