What Sucks…The Supreme Court
Nice day at work yesterday, douchenuts. Seriously, take a bow.
Aside from going out of your way to ease the mind of peds, making it clear that they can’t be put to death for fucking kids, you ALSO cut a major break to Exxon-Mobil, slashing what a previous court said they had to pay for ass-ramming the coast of Alaska in the Exxon-Valdez spill of 1989.
Seriously, and I thought I fucked up at work yesterday when I sneezed and absent-mindedly put my hand into this jar we have in the break room filled with M&M’s (I just got over TB).
The Supreme Court yesterday took the original penalty Exxon had to pay for the Exxon-Valdez spill- 2.5 billion (which at one time was 5 billion) and cut it to $500 million, or basically what it costs to fill the tank of a Winnebago.
The same Supreme Court that talks about “respecting precedent", and not legislating from the bench, etc.
Personally, I’d much rather have to money I spend to fill my tank go to buy some oil executive a new watch than to get some poor sonnavabitch oil covered duck (see logo) cleaned up. It’s good to see a company like Exxon-Mobil get a break.
How much worse off would we be if these dickwads were all fired and replaced by the actual Supremes? At least the opinions would be interesting to read.
So stay tuned, today the SC can fuck us even more as it rules on gun control. And when you’re at work today, and you accidentally delete your bosses’ expense account file, or slip up to his wife that he’s boinking his secretary- or if you are the secretary he's boinking and accidently give him the clap, don’t worry so much about it. You didn’t take a dump on the body of a dead, oil soaked duck, and you didn’t, you know, say peds couldn't be given the death penalty for "F-ing" a kid.
