Sebastian wins the Chip Diller Prize for masochism.
I posted my entry below entitled "Holder: Heller means exactly dick," on Sebastian's site at Snowflakes in Hell and this was his response:
"He’s following the standard gun grabber line on Heller. That’s not to say The courts will bite. At the least, they’ve had to retreat from prohibition and the notion that the second amendment doesn’t mean anything. The lines for the next major court battle have been drawn. It’s not a foredrawn conclusion we’ll lose."
To which I responded:
And that case takes how long? In any event it is decided after the fact of confiscation, so once again you back up in the hope of being restored your natural rights by the black-robed fools. You guys sure get the Chip Diller Prize for masochism. "Thank you, sir! May I have another?"
This isn't "pragmatism" by any definition of the word. It is surrender by degree.
