The feds regularly get to rule on things that anger half or more of everybody in America; I’m lucky if I can irritate a county.

And my lot is better than most. Think about it. The Wyoming Supreme Court only gets the chance to offend a half-million people with its rulings. That’s all the people they got. Granted, most of those folks own guns, but still … .  The Ninth Circuit regularly offends that many people[1] with its lunch order.
