Raich v. Ashcroft was handed down today . . .

Another blow to state's rights and yet another expansion of federal power to regulate. I'm not sure this is what our framer's intended - it's certainly not square with my view of the constitution.

Anyway, some thoughts from David Bernstein over at the Volokh Conspiracy are linked above.

UPDATE: Here's more from Neal Boortz today - excerpt:

"This case is a dramatic victory for the concept of big government. It is the Supreme Court's notice to all Americans to abandon any ideas they might have about returning government to the local level."

Not a good decision, but it's at least nice to see that Clarence Thomas was consistent with his more originalist view of the Constitution - too bad Scalia is a hypocrite (only originalist and anti-federalist when it suits his interests)
