Take This Moderates 

For all of those who found nothing wrong with the Riach decision by the Supreme Court we have the Senate confirmation of Justice Janice Brown. I cannot wait until she goes to work:

Opponents focused on Brown's stinging critiques of government programs, including those designed to help low-income Americans. She once called a landmark 1937 court decision allowing federal regulation of workplace conditions "the triumph of our own socialist revolution." She wrote that "where government moves in, community retreats and civil society disintegrates. . . . The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." In a speech, she said, "If we can invoke no ultimate limits on the power of government, a democracy is inevitably transformed into a kleptocracy -- a license to steal, a warrant for oppression."
Let's get going.
