I am aware of that interpretation, by both the Congress and the Court.

Just as I am aware that both interpret that once an item moves in interstate commerce, it is always in commerce (or as per Raich, any economic impact whatsoever, is commerce).

While I don't have to agree with these interpretations, I do have to abide by them.

Vanya? It was I who moved the posts. They were relevant to this thread.

I happen to agree with you on this, but I also know that despite what the Court says now, it is still a precedent that they can fall back upon.
