Mice Are Not Horses

It occurs to me that the Supreme Court basically ruled that Congress cannot make a law declaring that mice are horses and have that law actually make mice become horses.

I would have thought that was clear, but maybe not. Congress therefore can’t turn a tax into a fine or penalty merely by calling it by those names.

I would like to now point out that marijuana possession and speeding are both legal in Maine, we just have a tax on those things, so forget about challenging that next speeding ticket in court.
