    Well, I have to agree with him. The 14th Amendment only guarantees that you can't be denied protection of the laws. The amendment, itself, doesn't deal with all the laws of the land. It just says that if you are a citizen, you are guaranteed that those laws will apply to you. I don't see the problem. He is correct.

  • I agree with him and appreciate the fact that he doesn't cave to popular or political opinion/pressure. He holds the law up to constitutional standards at a time when so many want to reinvent, rewrite, or just ignore it because they don't like how it applies to certain subjects.

  • Okay...i'll bite.

    I think he's jerk and disagree with most of his opinions. I think he jumps at any chance to exclude people and/or shit on the little guy and that makes him an asshole.
