Return of the Prodigal

Today is 9 October 2012.

On this date in 1967, Che Guevara, captive of the Bolivian army, was assassinated on CIA orders.

More details later, but...  My long absence was caused by an illness which left the doctors predicting my demise no later than the Fourth of July. I resolved that dying at age 60 was existentially boring, plus I do enjoy proving authority figures wrong, so I refused the exit.  I am now medically judged hale and hearty, and am even more svelte than in years.

So let's reboot.

Antonin Scalia, currently hijacking a position as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, considers himself a constitutional “textualist”.

"The death penalty? Give me a break. It's easy. Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion. Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state," Scalia said recently at the American Enterprise Institute.

How about slavery, Mr. Textualist?

The Foundering Fathers were 1,000% in favour of slavery.  The hallmarks of slavery, in whatever society it appears, include mass theft, mass murder, mass rape, and mass pedophilia.

Does Scalia personally practice pedophilia, or does he “merely” defend to the death the “right” of others to rape children?

Given the distinction he's apparently quite comfortable with making, I see that he believes that the Constitution affords an absolute right to "heterosexual sodomy." Good to know.
