>> Way to go Scalia.. The only way to transform someones life is to be a part of it. &etc
Amen, and well said.
I think Kagan might end up surprising us. She’s liberal but she’s far from stupid. IF the conservative world view is in fact the righteous world view — and at least you and I must believe it is, ‘cause we’re here on FR — then it stands to reason that a thinking person with integrity can be swayed to abandon liberalism and embrace conservatism.
Wouldn't it be a blessing if Kagan turned into the Left's David Souter?
When I was first introduced to Obama, he said: Oh, youre the gun guy. I responded: Yes, I guess so. I dont believe that people should be able to own guns, Obama replied. I then suggested that it might be fun to have lunch and talk about that statement sometime. He simply grimaced and turned away, ending the conversation. That was the way numerous interactions with Obama went. “
John Richard Lott Jr. He spent five years as a visiting professor (199495) and as a fellow (199599) at the University of Chicago.
authored five books, including More Guns, Less Crime, The Bias Against Guns, and Freedomnomics.
Most people who are knowledgeable enjoy a hard discussion of their work.
With Obama not so much.
At this level of discussion it’s a sporting event.
In my opinion, if you cannot defend your proposal, you do not belong there.
Don’t forget that Kagan wants to turn Scalia her way.
