Television Access To Supreme Court Proceedings (S.1945)? You Betcha. This Is America!

The Supreme Court doesn't seem to worry about making decisions that affect our Democracy and our everyday lives, but they don't want us to watch them do it. Welcome to America. However their wishes to hold their court proceedings out of the public eye met a stumbling block February 9, 2012 when the Senate Judiciary Committee, by a 11-7 vote, approved S.1945.
Hillbilly :: Television Access To Supreme Court Proceedings (S.1945)? You Betcha. This Is America!

The Supreme Court proceedings are currently open to the public, but only 250 people can attend these so called (250 seats available) public hearings, the Supreme Court may define that as open to the public, but anyone living in the 21st century knows better. The American people have been fighting to get the Supreme Court to come out of the shadows for a long time. Remember when Justice David H. Souter had this to say in 1996?

The New York Times
"I can tell you the day you see a camera come into our courtroom, it's going to roll over my dead body."

This is 2012 and the Supreme is still fighting television access to their proceedings and they have friends in the US Senate. Senator Dianne Feinstein voted against S.1945 and had this to say: "The court does not want this", "Justices Breyer, Kennedy, Scalia, Alito and Rehinquist have opposed it", "I don't believe we should tell the Supreme court what to do." Well Senator Feinstein the American people don't want to tell the Supreme Court what to do, they just want to see what they are doing and see it in real time.

The members of the U.S. Supreme Court should know the American people don't trust any branch of government and that includes the Supreme Court of the United states of America, and it is no longer acceptable for folks like me to allow a group of people, with guaranteed life time jobs, to make decisions affecting my life in near secrecy. This is the 21st Century and the U.S. Supreme Court needs to grow up and face reality. They work for us we don't work for them!
