Equal Time

In a prior post, I asked the left if they were uncomfortable with liberal judges being on the wrong side of free speech in the recent BCRA-related decision.  As equal time, in the spirit of the heinous Fairness Doctrine again raising its ugly head, I will ask the right if they are comfortable with conservative justices being on the wrong side of property rights and government power in Wilkie v. Robbins.

By the way, speaking of the Fairness Doctrine, its instructive that the incumbent political parties consider fairness to mean equal time for all the ... incumbent political parties.  Its interesting that no one in Congress takes the law to mean equal time for Greens or Libertarians or White Supremacists.

    As Sartre said, existence precedes essence. Perhaps we should be labeling them the way they vote, not the way they're supposed to vote.

    As a card-carrying member of the VRWC I'm happy to tell you that, no, I'm not comfortable at all with the conservative justices' being on the wrong side of property rights and government power in Wilkie v. Robbins. But, so what? I'm pretty happy that they stuck a dagger in the heart of race-based school admissions today and really distressed that, for some reason, they saw fit to allow manufacturers to set a minimum price.

    In the end, I don't understand the point of your question. For what it's worth, I criticized the court for that last one just this evening.

    Do I get a passing grade?
