  • Confounded

    All legal arguments aside, how is it possible that the same Court can find it is alright to scream god hates fags at the funerals of fallen soldiers, and at the same time, refuse to allow even a moderate degree of civil protest on its own doorstep.

    To Marshall Talkin and Chief Justice Roberts: Thank you both very much.

    To Judge Howell, with apologies to Bryce Harper: That was a clown ruling, sis.

    To Mark Goldstone, with disdain: Get a life, you rabel-rousing loser.

    The SCOTUS plaza is arguably the last place in official Washington, if not the whole of America, where everyone is obliged to conduct themselves with dignity and decorum, and with consideration for others. Only fools would seek to turn that majestic space into a loudmouth bazaar for every shameless crackpot and disgruntled dope under the sun. Keep your noise on the sidewalk, folks, and be grateful you don't live in Turkey, Syria, Russia or North Korea, for example.
