  •  Yeah, weird how that always works for him (10+ / 0-)

    Did the framers write the constitution in anticipation of someone like Scalia? Perhaps they divined him during one of their secret illuminati freemason meetings over 225 years ago? Does he own an apron?

      Freemasonry is not, nor was in the time of the Framers, any of that stuff CT folks like to say it is.

        apparent Masonic conspiracy involving murder (William Morgan) that led to the rise of the Anti-Masonic/Know Nothing parties and eventually several reforms including the creation of the Shriners Hospitals.

        Yes, it's a far cry from the super elaborate stuff the CT folks like to claim (and a conspiracy to commit murder was much easier to get away with back then as they were still using the Bertillon system rather than fingerprints to identify criminals in custody).

        It's impossible to not engage in biting sarcasm when dealing with the likes of Scalia, who is a human irony magnet and one seriously fucked-up person. The demons that he has in his head, I shudder to even try to imagine.

        Personally, I suspect that he has a fear/worship/hate relationship with his now presumably deceased parents and has never really properly acknowledged let alone dealt with that bugaboo, instead sublimating it into his legal career and self-annointed role as lead spokesman for the Uptight Hateful Bigots Society.

      Things never change for scalia in some things. What the founders meant is unchanging and forever true, unless it isn't.  By his logic the only kinds of firearms that would be allowed under the 2nd amendment would be muskets, smoothbore pistols and a few very long rifles.
