    Sr. Ass. Justice Scalia: TSA gropes understandable, NSA spying good. Perhaps revolt.

    Justice Antonin Scalia said, "No because it's not absolute. As Ruth has said there are very few freedoms that are absolute. I mean your person is protected by the Fourth Amendment but as I pointed out when you board a plane someone can pass his hands all over your body that's a terrible intrusion, but given the danger that it's guarding against it's not an unreasonable intrusion. And it can be the same thing with acquiring this data that is regarded as effects. That's why I say its foolish to have us make the decision because I don't know how serious the danger is in this NSA stuff, I really don't."

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd of law school students that if taxes in the U.S. become too high then people “should revolt.”

    We the people know precisely how dangerous is this stuff.

    he does know that he can ask questions, right? To get answers to his concerns.

    he's getting old ... too old ... but we'll keep him on until a non-loony is in the presidency

    I believe Scalia has one of the better records on 4th amendment cases.
