Even John Roberts can see it

The emanations and penumbras crowd on the Central Judicial Committee have decided that Luv and Equalness, like, rule.

No surprise.

Scalia said that the decision was hippie reasoning, worthy of a fortune cookie. And that if he had been compelled to write the kind of language that Brennan used in his opinion, even if it were the price of the 5th vote, he would hide his head in a bag.

His reputation as an evil fascist is a perfect example of NewThink. Scalia's constant refrain is that if the Constitution does not clearly, or very reasonably, answer a question, then, it is not a matter for the Court oligarchy to decide. It should be done democratically. The people and their elected reps should decide it. Not a committee of unelected lawyer.

For this, he is seen as a mini-Hitler.

But the truth here lies, as it so often does, in the Book of Alice:

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master-- that’s all.”

I recently read a book on the history of the Constitution. Apparently the courts have been making things up for a very long time.

And as Ms Coulter makes clear, if the immigration invasion is not stopped and reversed --and I see no signs whatever that it will be-- nothing else matters, since "America" will no longer exist.

Irrationality reigns supreme. The gnostics had it right: the only sensible thing to do is to opt out of the whole shit show.

Well, that depends on which one means by opting out: Dylan Roof or AJ Bettes Jr?

By the way, comment number two was from me.

Suicide and imprisonment don't get me wildly excited. How about some sort of communal farming community where Right-wing man-lovers can get together and err... enjoy each other's company? ;)

Ah, like the old days of yore in Europe...A little digging in the dirt here, a little dick rubbing in the bushes there. Good times.
