With an opening likely soon on the Supreme Court, it's revealing to get a glimpse into the world view of perhaps the Court's most conservative judge, Clarence Thomas, who turned up at a recent event honoring the Bill of Rights – which he's evidently not crazy about. Thomas suggested "equal time for (a) Bill of Responsibilities," said he gets solace from Douglas MacArthur speeches about 'duty, honor, country,' and fondly remembered about the good old days:
"How can you not reminisce about a childhood where you
began each day with the Pledge of Allegiance as little kids lined up in
the schoolyard and then marched in two by two with a flag and a
crucifix in each classroom?"
