And Definitely Place Not Thy Trust in Economists or Metaphysical Philosophers

"To an economist, perhaps, there is no difference between activity and inactivity . . . . But the distinction between doing something and doing nothing would not have been lost on the Framers, who were 'practical statesmen,' not metaphysical philosophers." -- NFIB v. Sebelius, Opinion of Roberts, CJ, at 24.

Economists and metaphysical philosophers can still sometimes be really nice people, though.
