Progressives Cry “No Fair” At SCOTUS Decisions

Supreme Court conservatives are playing a long game – Los Angeles Times

The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. showed again this year that it is playing a long game, writing opinions that move the law in small but steady steps in a conservative direction.

At first glance, many of its decisions appear modest, and the justices themselves downplayed them as narrow and tightly targeted. But they also set the stage for broader rulings, and liberals voiced concern about their long-term impact.

Actually, the only thing that liberals (actually, progressive leftists) are concerned about here is that the sorta conservative wing of the court has appropriated their own leftist playbook to move the law in small but steady steps back toward the constitution.

They feel they are the only ones who should be permitted to use that strategy.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I stopped reading that BS LAT “analysis” piece as soon as I saw they’d identified John “this blatantly unconstitutional piece of crap is constitutional because I’m calling it a tax even though no one argued that in court” Roberts as a conservative.
