Bill of Rights Day
CATO scores us as one out of ten. Pretty depressing. I am not going to excerpt, you'll want to read the whole thing. It's what we're all about around here.
I'd add a couple more downers:
-- I thought their Eighth example was not as strong as would be a serious complaint about the possibility of anal rape in American prisons and the jocular attitude toward it.
-- Speaking of attitude, our country's foremost progressive journal, The New Republic, recently ridiculed tea party protesters, calling them "Tenthers" based on their appreciation for the Tenth Amendment. It seems believing in the Bill of Rights is considered akin to being a conspiracy theorist. Sad days.
