The BASTARDS passed it not mentioning 'tax', then argued it as a tax before the SCOTUS who should've shot it down RIGHT THEN AND THERE.
I have NO doubt that Roberts was extorted, bribed, paid off and that there's a highly incriminating FBI file on him that was used to get him to vote the way he did. Gay bath house photos, maybe? His smile looks a bit 'sweet' if you ask me; Fruitcake alert!
You forgot strong arm tactics and blackmail.
I have become convinced that Roberts was in some way coerced to change his position. Either threatening him or his family. I have never believed that such things actually take place, especially at that high a level, but when you look at his orginal declarations during the case and in the original majority opinion he originally wrote, there is no other logical reason he would have decided to change his mind and use the circuitous reasoning he eventually used in his second majority opinion. It simply makes no sense. At first I just accepted that he was afraid his court would be viewed as too political and changed, but even if he did have that change of heart, his decision would not have been such a mess.
I remember reading on FR that benedict roberts has a problem with his 2 adopted kids - being ILLEGAL - tsk - as from where ? ireland ? hmm via WHERE ?
