“Or do you agree with every decision that has ever been handed down?”
You can always pull that old argument. The courts are not infallible, and actually are extremely and constantly fallible. But I wonder, do you ask yourself if you trust implicitly every decision handed down when you personally agree with the outcome? Were you so hard on Lopez, Citizens United, or the DC gun case? Or was it all, “Three cheers for SCOTUS!”

What a weighted, and qualified, query.
I trust little "implicitly". I'm too familiar with the foibles, faults and failures of mankind to do that.
Were you so hard on Lopez, Citizens United, or the DC gun case?
When I disagreed I said so. There are some aspects that I don't agree with in that they were still too restrictive on the rights of citizens.
So even though they were "good" wins, if you will, they still IMO left much to be desired, the DC gun case in particular. You couldn't pay me to live in DC!
But, you didn't!! You have shown remarkable thickness, an admirable resistance to common sense and no amenable tendancies whatsoever.
What a gift you are!
By refusing to accept fact and overwhelming supporting material from so many more than equally gifted professors of our Constitution and American law and history, you have been an outstanding sort of "classroom idiot", letting the rest of us learn while you refused to!
Thank you! By looking and acting the fool throughout these hundreds of posts, you've done a great service to the country and Constitution.
By being unteachable while surrounded by the best teachers, you've taught us all.
I see what you did there...and I won't forget the service you've done for us.
