  •  TROLL!!! (5+ / 2-)

    You are full of it.  What SCOTUS did, was ignore Congress' intent.  The decision by SCOTUS ignored aged premises of law like, for instance, a legislative body does not pass a law that makes no sense.  What SCOTUS did was literally read the words, (like the Bible you know which has no imagery or metaphors) and make a nonsensical decision and imputed to Congress a nonsensical law.  This flies in the face of over 200 years of jursiprudence and is the whole basis for this stupid "original intent" and "judicial activism" meme.  You have bought the right-wing BS hook, line and sinker.  But I expect you knew this.

      You are entitled to challenge me on the facts. And I concede that I may have misremembered the details of the case.

      However, if you bothered to even glance at my diaries and comments, you would know that I do NOT take the right wing position on anything, that I have been one of the fiercer critics on this blog of the right's ideological fervor and rejection of reason - two flaws that you have just now demonstrated can also be weaknesses of the left:

      You assumed in your ideological fervor that, because I did not read the verdict the way you did, that I must be a "troll"; and

      On the basis of one disagreement alone, you rejected the requirements of reason and stereotyped me into a pigeonhole of your own making.

      If nothing else, the fact that I have the ability to HR your comment should tell you your overwrought and overhasty assumption is mistaken.

      It is not the business of the state to help its citizens get into heaven, nor to save them from hell.

      and I withdrew the HR. But, please, next time you should also take some time to think before you blast off like this when it wasn't called for.

      some of the best legal minds on this blog agree with Dan in this matter.  Ask Adam B about this decision some time.
