SCOTUS Insanity

There are many cases where the Supreme Court has exercised their right to “interpret” our Founder’s Constitution to the detriment of our culture and common sense, and one of those cases reflects the current debate over the burning of the American flag.
The Supremes in Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989); United States v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990) invented something called “symbolic speech” which common sense calls “action.”

The Founders didn’t understand “speech” to be anything but utterances and writing. It took the Supremes about 210 years to divine speech to include actions.

Perhaps a newly constituted SCOTUS toward the end of Trump’s first term can reduce the insanity of the previous Court, and address Wickard v. Filburn, 317 U.S. 111 (1942) as well.
