Thanks A Lot

Too late to inform the public when it could have made a difference, the Times posts a profile of Judge Janice Rogers Brown:

"In the heyday of liberal democracy, all roads lead to slavery," she has warned in speeches.


her sweeping denunciations of New Deal legal precedents that enabled many federal regulations and social programs - developments she has called "the triumph of our socialist revolution."


Her friends describe Justice Brown as a voracious reader, amateur poet and serious intellectual, and her speeches are filled with allusions to writers including...Ayn Rand, Gertrude Himmelfarb, [and] Friedrich von Hayek

Libertarian nutjobs must love her. The Rollback To The 1880s counter-revolution lives! If they can land a couple like her on the SCOTUS, they'll have child labor laws repealed in no time. Laissez-faire uber alles.
