Hey Kevin,

Nothing new here, as the ACLU remains hypocritical, two-faced, and forked-tongued.

"More troubling is the unsupported allegations that... these decisions "have created a legal foundation that is promoting innovation across numerous sectors"... One would think that the experience, putatively represented by the co-signers of the letter, six years after the Myriad decision, would yield ample, real-world evidence of this speculation but it's nowhere to be found in the letter."

Exactly right. The empirical evidence is entirely to the contrary (URL below). The ACLU's claim has nothing but uninformed crystal ball gazing to back it.


Good is bad. Bad is good.

Up is down. Down is up.

Welcome to the "1984" world of the ACLU.
