All I'll add is that, on the good side, Charlton won't live to see the Republican Supreme Court start trying to take away people's guns.

I listened to the oral arguments in DC. v. Heller, and this is certainly not the way I anticipate how SCOTUS will come out.  Why do you think they'll rule in favor of a limited 2nd Amendment?

It's simply part of their overall agenda.  They probably feel they've moved past the point where they needed to cozy up to the gun owners, since now many gun owners are voting for Democrats anyhow.

NeoConservative doctrine doesn't believe in an armed citizenry, unless those citizens are on the gub'ment payroll.  It's all about making sure their side is the only one with weapons.

You do know there's are fundamental differences between what you're describing and the ideology of the five conservative justices on the Supreme Court, right?

For example, do you even remember Scalia utterly bashing Bush & his NeoCon ubergovernment ideas in Hamdi...an opinion he was joined with by Justice Stevens?

That was all a part of a Cunning Plan to lull the sheeple into a sense of false complacency so that the administration could turn everyone who isn't on the Board of Directors of a Fortune 500 company into a temple slave, catamite, or bioelectric battery.

RE:  Heston's speech:  It's rough out here for a rich straight white guy.  Also, MLK was magic.  If you ever marched with him, or even agreed with him, then nothing you ever say or believe thereafter can be racist, by definition.

Well seeing as how they are literally just about to decide on this case, we can see whether my opinion is right or wrong pretty soon, right?

Mr. Fed wins the Charlton Heston (née John Charles Carter) Memorial Thread Award for horrifying mental imagery with his references to bioelectric batteries and catamites.  Seriously, catamite?  Tell me you've filed some brief somewhere with that reference.
