This from a law student:

Pat Harvey, a 24-year-old second-year law student at George Washington University, said : “If a democratically elected city council has had a law on the books for 30 years, it’s not the court’s job to overturn it.”

Shall we start discussing laws outlawing abortion and enforcing racism that were overturned? Should those laws have been outside the domain of the court?

  1. “Wow” just doesn’t cover it. This is stupifyingly ignorant. It reminds me of the hate-mail I got after a pro-2A letter to the editor, wherein a young lady took me to task for relying on the Constitution. She thought something written in the last ten years would be far more relevant. Sometimes I think there’s no hope for the future.

  2. Dear Pat Harvey– 24-year-old second-year law student at George Washington University,

    Show me the statute of limitations on Constitutional violations. I would like the text, verbatim, please, along with the date of its implementation.

    Thank you


    Dear professors at George Washington University,

    Please explain, using example, how it would be possible for Pat Harvey to be any more wrong about the U.S. Constitution and to the role of the Supreme Court than he was when making the above quoted statement. Also please explain how, under your tutelage, Pat Harvey came to his above represented views regarding the U.S. Constitution and the role of the Supreme Court.

    Thank You in Advance.

  3. I’m surprised that you’re surprised. GWU Law is no doubt infected with liberalism and attracts like-minded students. Or so says this cynical, conservative, University of Georgia School of Law alumnus.

  4. This infection, does it cause the sufferers to adopt the view that after any law has been on the books for 30 years it is immune to challenge? Or that they will just grasp any rationale that supports whatever belief system they adhere to at the moment?

    And finally, is there a nonfatal cure for this infection?

  5. Pat just failed the Jews in the Attic test.

    Without judicial review, the majority can run wild. (As much as I hate the results of a great deal of judicial review…)

  6. No, silly, only laws that are progressive are immune from being struck down, regardless of whether they have been on the books for years and years or only newly passed. Leftists see the law as a tool to acheive what they (mostly) cannot do legislatively. After all, why try to amend the Constitution when 5 black-robed eunuchs can make law for you!

    As to a “nonfatal cure” a “clue x four” works well, if not applied to the brain housing unit.
