Ledbetter vs. Goodyear- Reorganizing the Supreme Court

It is clear following the decision in this case, which made it legal for employers to discriminate in employee pay based on gender provided they were able to keep their discrimination secret for 180 days, that the Supreme Court now consists of only four Associate Justices. Other members of the Court are Chief Injustice John G. Roberts, Associate Injustice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., Associate Injustice Antonin G. Scalia, Associate Injustice Clarence Thomas, and Associate Injustice Anthony M. Kennedy.

What most Americans who work or have worked know is that employers almost always forbid them under penalty of discharge to discuss their pay levels, thus making it a ho-hummer for the employer to discriminate on any basis it wishes to with little or no fear that the employee will discover the discrimination within 180 days if ever. It means that the Injustices applaud the employer's ability to obstruct justice and reward it. May the five of them rot in hell for at least 180 days for justice denied.
