The Other Supreme Court Decision


Brief post today.

While all America parses the Supreme Court's decision on the Affordable Care Act, I find myself moved by their other big decision:  that the Stolen Valor Act is unconstitutional because it's in violation of free speech.

Mind you, I despise the people that the Stolen Valor Act was designed to punish -- those who falsely claim to have won the highest honor awarded to the military, the Congressional Medal of Honor.  They are, let's not mince words, scum.  Often the despicable will benefit from a right which all the rest of us need.

Still, this is important decision.  Lies are now officially a form of free speech, protected by the Constitution.

Which means that my career is street legal!

Above:  An unrelated video.  Because the Supreme Court refuses to post amusing images to go with their decisions.
