I find it sad that after decades of watching liberal public policy shoved down the nation's throat by unelected, unaccountable judges, so many conservatives are jumping up and down with glee at the odd instance of conservative public policy being shoved down the nation's throat by unelected, unaccountable judges. If the last fifty years haven't taught you that theocratic tyrants--even those that wear black robes and claim the US Constitution as their Gospel--are generally up to no good, I don't know what will...

This is a big, big win. Not because of what effect it may have in Chicago. Chicago will continue to stand in the schoolhouse door, just as the pigs in D.C. did after Heller. Alito laid it out: Chigago has worse violence that Baghdad. It's lost to civilization.

No, the battle is to be won elsewhere, in the hearts and minds of regular Americans. This is where the progress is being made, where non-criminal Americans are buying guns and ammunition at a breathtaking rate, getting petmits to carry concealed, and (H'ray!) joining gun clubs.

The legal victories in Heller and McDonald are going to drive the stake deeper into the heart of the gun-grabbing movement. They will not, as some over at VC have suggested, make those "common-sense" "first steps" more acceptable, on the theory that now the gun culture will feel less threatened. That view mistakes to momentum on the gun issue. The gun side is on the offensive, and the politicians are falling all over one another to put the controversty behind them, as seen in the DISCLOSE debacle.

So where are we going in the future? Not toward the gun-grabber perversion of disarming the law abiding to keep some guns out of the hands of the criminals. That god has failed.

Just another of the many good reasons to get the government the hell out of education. Controversy over textbooks, creationism, student clubs, tee-shirt slogans, prayer at graduation, condom distribution and numerous other matters would all go away if we just privatized our schools.

I love this site. Its like visiting a world where every right wing fantasy is true. It's like Galt's Gulch.

Every right wing fantasy is true, Molly.
