From looking at reviews it doesn't look like the book actually has anything of substance anyway.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Did you read Percy's original post?
Judging from the argument you make in this post you did not.
OH, are you going with the old Straw man?
Do you need any more examples of Supreme Court justices chosing their interpretive scheme to fit their desired ends?
Seems to be what you are posting about , but this is not at all what Percy argued in the OP.
Percy writes:
So it seems that if Justice Scalia agrees with the words then they must be interpreted precisely literally, and if he disagrees then they must be interpreted in context.
Is a totally different argument. Do you want to rebut that or just throw up more straw men?

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.
