Justice Scalia's Foolishness

Justice Scalia's foolish belief that the Constitution must be interpreted using the meaning of the text at the time it was written is pernicious and leads him further into foolery.

It is an act of utter Faith far greater than the Faith of any present day religion. What were thousand of years of study, theology, discussion, Mishnah, and collating of variant texts of holy writ about? Was it all mere idiocy of the religious who seem incapable of determining what the meaning of the text was at the time it was written?

Justice Scalia is not a simpleton, but he is a Simplifier. He is equivalent to the man sitting on a bar stool saying that all the world's problems would be solved if we only asked "What Would Jesus Do?".

Read more on Scalia's nonsense:
and I will write tomorrow about the early history of the Constitution, and muse on the odd notion that the Founding Fathers inhabited the Golden Age, and no one since that time was of sufficient wisdom or virtue to promulgate laws equal in inspiration. The myth of a past golden age is always a low valuation of the present, and I for one am sick and tired of having simple-minded buffoons interpret our history to us.
