Cavalier wrote:You're an idiot. He's citing to an argument that he previously made simply because he's making that same argument again; he's clearly not citing his past decisions as binding authority. There was absolutely no reason to make this thread.


I realize what he's doing, and I still think it's amazing. Originalism makes no sense. The very first sentence of this dissent: "The Court's decision today does not comport with the original public understanding of the First Amendment."

This is ridiculous on many levels. First, it is an insult to the incredibly smart people who wrote the Constitution. To assert that they believed they were creating a rigid and unchanging document requires a serious absence of intellectual horsepower.

Second, at least some of those people were strong supporters of slavery, so to read Thomas writing about "original public understanding" of the Constitution is incongruous at best.

Originalism makes more "sense" than activist courts do. HTH.

On behalf of law students everywhere, I just want to thank you and your fellow Federalist Society members for using that tax evader's money to buy better food than pizza for your presentations. Seriously, man, we appreciate it.

But you were attacking him for citing himself, not for originalism.

You should probably just stop posting so the thread stops getting bumped.
