Every day one justice should sit behind a computer and answer questions about the Constitution for the public. This is my proposal for making the Court more accessible. I can you see the “teapartiers” lining up now.
I carry two, not one but two copies of the Constitution with me at all times. One with all theses cool quotes. Like did you know that “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Ya I know me either. And the other is the boring one with only the Constitution in it ( I know boooo!) Well anyways, I know the “Constitution matters” ( my thesis advisor wrote a book on it so I have to say that). But for more than two centuries the document has regulated the affairs of our country and our democracy but are the fundamentals still right for the country as it currently exists. Isn’t it an 18th century solution to an 18th century problem?
How many times have we heard someone say, “Well that’s just my opinion” or “I’m entitled to my opinion.” Maybe maybe not. Because you can string words, syllable’s and sentences together does not mean that you opinion counts for much. Opinions are weighted like everything else. Some mean more than others, some are more informed than others and some turn out to be factual accurate. So next time you state you opinion ask yourself “Do I have any actual knowledge about what I am about to comment on?”
Oh yes, the irony of this post is not lost on me.
I heard a rumor that the Republican Party was considering Justice Thomas for the republican nomination.
This would be the quietest presidency in the history of the presidency.
No matter where you go, what library you study at or what yard you eat lunch in….there is always someone whistling.
I wonder if BOGO applies? Anyways, where do I sign up? Oh, wait I can use this to advertise my future legal services. I can market package deals. The future is looking up for me!
“The Clash of Civilizations” thesis is a gimmick…better for reinforcing defensive self-pride than for critical understanding of the bewildering interdependence of our time.”
