    There’s a simple solution to that: leave. Better yet, die. Yes, I like that one. Die is much better. Satan already has a circle booked for you at the Dante Astoria.

  2. That article in the New Yorker is a long read but terribly enlightening.

    As Alito later recalled, he joined the debate team, where he grappled with such Court opinions as Mapp v. Ohio (1961), which established that the “exclusionary rule”—prohibiting prosecutors from using evidence in court that has been obtained in violation of a defendant’s constitutional rights—applied not just to the federal government but also to the states.

    In a 2015 interview, Alito told the conservative commentator Bill Kristol that the experience made him “start to think about the Constitution and what it meant,” adding, “There’s nothing in the Constitution about the exclusionary rule. The Fourth Amendment says no unreasonable searches or seizures. But that’s it. So where did this come from? . . . What legitimizes something that is not in the Constitution?”

    That is pure “The card says ‘Moops'” reasoning, and fundamentally frightening.

    If there aren’t consequences for the government violating someone’s Constitutional rights, they’re essentially meaningless.

    “Sure the search warrant was fraudulent, and the cops beat the confession out of him, but the Constitution doesn’t *explicitly say you can’t use it!”*

    Had to read this article twice, real eye opener. Alito is a genuine assh*le and always has been.

      It’s driving him crazy that three brilliant jurists could cause him so much pain. Wish I could play a violin outside his house. But we’re not allowed to do that.

    A living gasbag of rotten eggs. The smell permeates the air every time he breathes, let alone when he squeals like a pig about something.

    No offense to the pigs.
