I just read that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is saying that the salaries of federal court judges are so low that it has "reached the level of a constitutional crisis."
You have GOT to be fucking kidding me! A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS? I'm sorry, can someone please remind me what part of the Constitution guarantees federal judges the RIGHT to make roughly $125,000 MORE than the average American?
Roberts called the wages "grievously unfair." I'm sorry, with all due respect, The Chief Justice is a fucking whiner.
Let's talk about what's "grievously unfair" for a moment, shall we? Losing 40-50 public defenders who are way underpaid anyway while Todd Stroger concerns himself with his new private elevator.
OK. What else is "grievously unfair"? How about that gay people can't get married? Why don't you work on that one Chief Justice Roberts? Or how about that gay people can't serve in the military? Let's not deal with human injustices. No... let's go back to salaries.
Here's something "grievously unfair": A federal judges salary is the equivalent of three public school teachers salaries. Or three states attorneys salaries.
I'm sorry. "grievously unfair"? Suck it up, Roberts.
