Here is the first paragraph by an article in the New York Times:

Thousands of the nation’s largest water polluters are outside the Clean Water Act’s reach because the Supreme Court has left uncertain which waterways are protected by that law, according to interviews with regulators.

What I call the Corporate Supreme Court, a band of solid right wing unbending five vote coalition who must be on their muscle now knowing they can be as activist as they want and give corporations as much power as possible and we can do nothing about it.

Oh yes, there are Congressmen and Senators who stand up and put forth a bill to correct the Supreme Courts' aggressive undeclared policy to destroy the poor and middle class, but it will never either come to a vote or be passed. The Republicans are dancing a jig over the Court's balance. Letting corporations spend all they want on lobbying or saying it another way, buying legislators; giving corporations suffrage; and now allowing massive pollution of water, degrading the Clean Water Act.

Corporations are saying that the Clean Water Act does not apply to them, going as far as not even complying with reporting, and having the Supreme Court's ruling to shove in the face of America is what is happening all over America.

There is something inherently wrong with a Supreme Court where appointment is made for life. I am in favor of closing it down, and using another method of staffing this high body without it being a political appointment and with some assurances that it is a centrist court.
