    Intersting that you can't list one that you consider legit yourself.


    "The core of their objections to the law was that if Congress can mandate Americans buy health insurance, it can do all sorts of other crazy things, like make people buy cell phones, broccoli, automobiles and burial insurance. (Or maybe make them wear funny hats and clown noses.)"

    "On Tuesday, they posed silly hypothetical questions of the sort that might
    boost TV ratings among Tea Party viewers but had little to do with the Constitution.

    Based on their goofy and hostile questions, the Republican majority seems poised to strike down
    the core of the Affordable Care Act, the so-called individual mandate, an idea that ironically
    originated with the right-wing Heritage Foundation, was enacted by Romney in Massachusetts,
    and only became a bÍte noire when Obama embraced it.

    Now, despite the Constitution’s grant of broad powers to Congress to regulate interstate commerce,
    the five Republican partisans on the Supreme Court appear ready to kill the health reform law in
    the midst of a presidential election and deliver a body blow to Obama’s reelection hopes."

    actually they are correct .. if the federal government can mandate a citizen has to bu a product or service under penalty of law.. then they can force a citizen to drive a certain vehicle , eat approved foods, etc etc.. do you really want the feds to have this kind of power over your life.. ??

    @ newpublius: Yeah, I've heard that weak argument for years now. It's a moot point. The supreme court has negated the argument numerous times over almost a hundred years. That's the definition of established constitutional law.

    That is why I'm becoming more pessimistic on this subject. It is a very real human tendency. I don't know that our society will be able to avoid it over the long haul.

    Some elements of the media do try to get on them. But how well the "RW judges" weather criticism is a good indication of how correct that criticism is.

    Oh, but you ignored Kagan's silly assertions. If you want to make an impressive point, you should include that one!
