    All too true. Courts are no longer the arbiters of the law that they used to be. It’s so common now for appeals courts and the supreme court to completely ignore the U.S. Constitution that it’s a shock when they actually act within the bounds of it. States, too. Oregon had a massive tax increase that was retroactive, despite both the U.S. and the state Constitutions forbidding ex post facto laws. The State one specifically forbids ex post facto tax increases. Because Oregon’s courts tend to ignore the law, it was never effectively challenged. We live in an era where the Rule of Law is effectively dead, where judges respect people and not the law.

    It seems that the teacher is a bit of a cynic, methinks.

    it is the 1% that use their money to make the laws and put in the law makers to benefit them with more money to pay the law makers and to put in their own law makers to make the laws that benefit them….

    I used to think this was just places like Ca. and that it could get better with education but it’s clear ignorance will rule, Education is dead and all that exists is knowledge without the hunger for truth, which is false knowledge. Law is based on the latest fad and values are just another punch line to a bad joke.

    The U.S. spends thousands of $$$ MORE per student than any other country, yet the students rank around 20th (or lower) in actual learned skills/knowledge. Thanks to the NEA, our school system is run by people pushing liberal agendas and idiotic “Common Core”, which will only further “dumb down” American kids. Want a little proof? When was the last time a non-Indian or non-Asian kid won the National Spelling Bee? I can’t remember.

    You forgot the Courts that make laws instead of upholding them.

    At least in Canada, we know what our Senators are for – they play hockey…. (in addition to falsifying their expense reports)

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but most of those countries with the highest educational ranking (Finland, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, etc.) tend to be at the very least, liberal countries, with several of them socialist. On the other hand, the American states with the lowest scores tend to be RED states.
