If the professor is correct, then the 1st Amendment must be about limiting free speech. :shrug:  In fact, the Constitution and Bill of Rights must be about limitless authority of big government.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

[[ Stanford law prof: Second Amendment is about restricting gun rights ]]

Yeppers!

Just like the First Amendment is about "restricting" speech and religion.

Just like the Fourth Amendment is about "restricting" individual privacy.

Just like the Fifth Amendment is about "restricting" the ownership of private property.

Just like the Tenth Amendment is about "restricting" the rights of the states.

Smart "professor" you are, Mr. Donohue!

As for me, I'd rather sit in the barn and listen to a burro bray for an hour, than endure one of your highly-paid lectures!

I was stationed in Alameda, Cal. in the early 70s and remember half the freshman class at Stanford had to take remedial reading.  Now they have remedial professors, I guess.

Our local junior college has remedial classes for students who want to attend and cannot read or do math after graduating from high school and I read this week in Texas they are dropping Algebra II in high school.
