Who kidnapped Justice Scalia?

when you board a plane someone can pass his hands all over your body that’s a terrible intrusion, but given the danger that it’s guarding against it’s not an unreasonable intrusion.


it can be the same thing with acquiring this data that is regarded as effects. That’s why I say its foolish to have us make the decision because I don’t know how serious the danger is in this NSA stuff, I really don’t.

Lessons …
  1. There is a difference which is significant between a conservative (so called) and those with libertarian leanings
  2. Anyone in long term service with any govt institution becomes a captured member of the political class, with all the proclivities, and needs of that class, such as belief in their own institutions as ‘doing good and right’ in the hands of those with ‘good intentions’
  3. It’s time in the republic to consider a limited term for SCOTUS
Now I agree with Mr. Rand Paul on VERY VERY little, but I trust him more than any other to safeguard my freedoms FROM THE UNITED STATES GOVT. I wonder if such a person can also safeguard me from other foreign depredations, and I find SMALL difference between such a person and Mr. Obama’s policy results. Yet IF THIS CONTINUES through 2016, who knows what I will do in the primaries. OR, in November?
One thing is for sure, given Harry Reid’s latest hysterical screeds, and Mr. Scalia’s pro govt do good leanings, I have no doubt that SCOTUS would uphold any violent act the govt committed in the pursuit of the ‘safety’ of citizens against the ‘given danger’, as Scalia put it. I still had faith in the Surpeme Court.
Just one more lesson in ..

How much more of this crap are the WE THE PEOPLE going to take?

We've gone from troubling indicators, to scary incidents, to outright fundamental arguments as to the nature of the nation, and the practical situations which result from that

I am extremely concerned we are in unexplored areas with results that are unpredictable.

How many times did Obama promise that fundamental change would come to America?

FYI: Scalia to students on high taxes: At a certain point, ‘perhaps you should revolt’.

Pastorius said...

Scalia's inconsistency (the "revolt" statement vs. the almost pro-NSA statement) are very odd.

They're both very extreme statements in their own separate ways.

I wonder if he's losing his marbles.

Um, you might want to read (or maybe reread) this from February.

First Roberts now Scalia.

More and more we are on our own.

What ARE we waiting for?

"What ARE we waiting for?"

I feel as if we are headed for the modern equivalent of the Boston Massacre. For a few days I thought the Bundy family was going to be it.

And then, all bets are off.
Who will have been 'right' in the fees dispute will not matter in the least, and we may all wake that day to a different nation.
