FOREIGN LAW SUPREME COURT POCAHONTAS

Justice Scalia is to be commended for telling conservative legislators to cease and desist their legislative endeavors to exclude foreign law consideration from Supreme Court deliberations.

Contrary to the best thinking of these xenophobe pandering Congressmen our cherished 230 years young founding documents were not found under Pocahontas's skirt.

The Declaration of Independence is essentially a French document. I repeat. Our declaration of Independence is essentially a French document.

Kudos to Jean-Jaques Rousseau and Charles-Louis de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu.

Societies change and laws change with them. Jumping up and down with hands clasped about one's ears to shut out philosophical deliberations contrary to one's pre-set opinion is at best infantile.
