“You can’t be serious.”
Ah, since we’ve moved on to pithy insults, any “analysis” of commerce clause jurisprudence that omits Lopez and Morrison isn’t worth the disk space it’s saved on.
Considerable discussion takes place where the writer is under the belief that Lopez worked a reigning-in of Congressional power. It did not. Congress rewrote that portion of law (Gun Free School Zones Act), and there have been post-Lopez CONVICTIONS on the federal prohibition of guns in school zones.
Well, speaking of pithy, I tried to hit a few cases along the way. I couldn’t catalog the entire history. For the purposes of this essay, I had to get Wickard in there. And Raich.
And by the way, I didn’t mean my reply to you as a “pithy insult.” Pithy maybe, but not an insult. It was an expression of disbelief. I find the statement that our system has worked “more or less fine” a pretty amazing statement, and meant only to express that reaction.
