Logic: Warping Pot Tax in Denver

If man ever built a machine that could defy the laws of nature, that machine would be the government.

Just the Facts, Ma’am: Procedural Hijinks Defeat Individual Liberties at High Court

In my last post, I described the benefits of the Supreme Court’s opinion in McDonald v. City of Chicago while taking issue with the Court’s adopted mode of analysis.  The Court also released Christian Legal Society v. Hastings College of Law at the end of its term.  While the case had the potential to be a solid victory for supporters of free association and the exercise of religion, something went wrong along the litigation track.
