MAJOR Freep controversy over constitution ....(this is pretty funny).
Edited on Sat Mar-26-05 01:48 AM by Rowdyboy
Is the major Supreme Court case concerning judicial review called "Mullberry v Madison" or "Mayberry v Madison"? One called it Mullberry, whereupon another Freep informed him that it was Mayberry v Madison. The first Freep returned and apologized for his mistake-"its been a long, frustrating day".

These guys are regular constitutional scholars, aren't they. Hell, I studied MARBURY v Madison in high school. How embarrassing, to try to discuss constitutional issues, without even knowing the name of the first truly precedent setting case in American jurisprudence. Dumb assholes.

1. LMAO.
These are our countrymen and women. It's simultaneously hysterical and frightening.

2. What do you expect from...
The single largest and most tightly-packed concentration of blowhards and jerkoffs on the planet? Intelligence? Informed viewpoints? Something that vaguely passes for a worldview?

5. It was a crowded thread, and NO ONE on the thread was smart enough
to correct them. I'd expect a decently educated high school senior to be able to do so. What can you expect from people who want a theocracy?

7. It was Mayberry vs Mount Pilot
It was the ruling that allowed Otis to lock himself up.

8. Didn't they remove Aunt Bea's feeding tube?
Edited on Sat Mar-26-05 01:50 AM by Rowdyboy
Didn't protesters bring her dill pickles and fried chicken? I vaguely remember that case.....

on edit: I like your description of Mayberry v Mt Pilot better! Otis was one of my favorites....

16. Floyd the Barber..
actually did have a stroke during the series. Notice his mannerisms in early episodes compared with the color ones made before he died. Oddly enough, the cast said that Howard McNear believed he was FUNNIER after the stroke. I love the show, that's how I know this useless stuff.

11. Yes, Barney was trying to slip Aunt Bea a cup of water, but it was
actually moonshine that Otis had hidden in the water cooler!

13. Learning about Marbury V. Madison/ Justice Marshall should be mandatory
if anyone wants to discuss 'judicial activism'

They will realize that the precedent for an 'activist judiciary' has been around since the earliest days of the republic. I wouldn't call it 'activist', rather Justices doing their job of interpreting the law.
