Giving Thanks, and a Fine to Boot

by Armen

Maybe I'm doing too much studying while under the influence of tryptophan, but after reading about the Lochner and post-Lochner cases, I'm curious how the Roberts court would rule on Mass enforcing Blue laws from the Puritan era. More importantly, I wonder what the state of this law would be if the Pats (rather than the Lions or the Cowboys) played on Thanksgiving.

What's to wonder about? Property rights no longer exist in this country, we worship federalism for the sake of federalism (even when it's oppressive federalism), and state-mandated religious observances are supposedly not First Amendment violations because they are "de minimus."

Assuming such a case could somehow reach the Supreme Court, it would rule 9-0 in favor of Massacusetts.
