  1. You would do well to read the following: https://store.legal.thomsonreuters.com/law-products/Textbooks/Scalia-and-Garners-Reading-Law-The-Interpretation-of-Legal-Texts/p/100022429
  2. Sorry - just getting to this now. In short, an originalist is one who adheres to originalism. The latter term, in turn, connotes one’s interpretative philosophy regarding Constitutional texts. As to the issue of packing the Court, I fail to see how a meaningful position on it is necessarily informed by one’s interpretive methodology. Ostensibly, the article is intended to be a “gotcha” regarding originalists.
  3. Let’s assume this case arose ten years ago. Let’s further assume the decision was 5-4, in favor of the “left” wing of the Court. Guess who the “swing” vote would have been. I’ll give you a hint: his first name is Antonin.
  4. Email voting = much integrity.
  5. I did a cursory review of the statement. Seemed like a lot of it was hearsay, which would minimize the personal knowledge mandate. Someone correct me if I am mistaken. I’m not advocating one way or the other, trying to be objective.
  6. Oral argument rarely plays a dispositive role on how a SCOTUS justice will rule. Nonetheless, the “right” wing of the court was much tougher on the ACA challengers - IMO. I’ll even go as far to opine that the specific challenge will fail. As one congressman said, and as I paraphrase the same now: “I want you to use my words against me down the road if I’m wrong.”
  7. I caught the last half hour. What are your thoughts?
  8. Issue: Whether the "community caretaking" exception to the Fourth Amendment's warrant requirement extends to the home. https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/20/20-157/149833/20200810154908347_Caniglia v. Strom - Cert Petition.pdf [Introduction section of petition] In Cady v. Dombrowski, 413 U.S. 433 (1973), this Court held that police officers did not violate the Fourth Amendment when they searched the trunk of a car that had been towed after an accident. The Court acknowledged that, “except in certain carefully defined classes of cases,” police cannot search private property
  9. We should just vote by email.
  10. Disappointed to see another election year in which no redfish slot-length changes are included on Mississippi/Georgia ballots. Give the people a voice!!! This is what really matters.
  11. Who has said different? No meaningful opinions against packing the court are based on interpretative methodology.
  12. Williams gets no targets until we’re down 24-0 with less than 5 minutes left before halftime. Let that sink in.
  13. Each play. Sick of this crap. When will it change???????? It’s every year!!!!!!!!!!
  14. The typical Athens-version of Auburn so far. SICK OF IT!!!!! WAKE UP!!!!!!
  15. Give this a read. Be warned, it is lengthy. https://poseidon01.ssrn.com/delivery.php?ID=388082074064088026089009098001126064039053020018026058109067010101115097066024005086004023025048015127038004074087001123113003023025088064054106093078000072079091068003007121003031025122124094020096031072014064105023087087073082022118127067001074066&EXT=pdf "Our findings suggest that the danger of increased instability due to term limits is very real, and that policymakers should take that risk into account when considering the proposal. Furthermore, this reduced stability could fu
  16. @aubiefifty In my view - Regardless of whether one thinks that allowing abortion is a good or bad idea, its an issue that the U.S. Constitution says nothing about; and one that should be left to democratic choice (the people, persuading their fellow neighbors). In fact, it used to be an issue left to democratic choice: some states (20 in number) allowed it - in one way or another - while other states did not. However, in 1973, a few unelected lawyers dressed in black took that issue away from the people, and said "no state can prohibit it." Do I ever think Roe v. Wade will be overturned?
