Pandora’s Box

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Hmmm, so according to Mr. Justice Stevens, the Supreme Court is capable of getting a decision wrong, as it did in the case he dissented from. I wonder what other cases also were wrongly decided and therefore ought to be ignored by all right-thinking people?

Brown v. Board of Education – separate but equal?

Roe v. Wade – abortion on demand?

Stenberg v. Carhart – partial birth abortion?

Obergefell v. Hodges – gay marriage?

The retired justice may have done the nation a great service, opening the door to invite us to ignore the Supreme Court.

What he’s also done is shown us what he’d never have put in a legal opinion; why repeal the Second Amendment if it isn’t in fact a broad protection of citizens’ gun rights?

  1. Thirdly, he’s also admitted to us that he is not the impartial jurist that he pledged to be when he took his oath of office. But anyone who isn’t a progressive partisan hack has known this for decades.

  2. What he’s shown us is the era of Big Obfuscation is dead. We need answers from candidates, not flimsy excuses or parsed Bullshit.

    “A promise to defend and protect the Constitution means ALL, right Mr. Prospective SCOTUS justice?” And “The 2nd amendment is part of the Constitution, right?”
