bigsteve3OOO: Its nice to see the ACLU back on track and fighting the good fight again. During the 90s and 00s they were jujst a christian bashing entity.
TheShavingofOccam123: "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!"Seeing how the SCOTUS has reduced itself to taking bribe money from big business so big business can make obscene amounts more, I don't blame anyone--particularly idiots with an ideology--for telling the the court to fark off.You get back what you put out. Shiat out opinions that are bought and paid for with corporate profits and you'll get shiat thrown back at you.
FLMountainMan: DAMN YOU OBAMA!
SilentStrider: It's sad that this even needed to go before a judge.
FLMountainMan: FLMountainMan: DAMN YOU OBAMA!I really need a Khan graphic with this.SilentStrider: It's sad that this even needed to go before a judge.I agree. I mean, I'm all for the right to have your grievance heard in a court of law. And I'm all for states trying to push the law in a certain direction through the courts. But when state legislatures pass clearly unconstitutional laws just to appease the fringes of their political parties, I really think it's a big waste of capital.
FLMountainMan: But "your" guys don't accept bribes, amirite?
rumpelstiltskin: I know some Okies, and they're proud people. It doesn't matter what some judge says, they're not going to start speaking French, not in Tulsa at least.
Xythero: rumpelstiltskin: I know some Okies, and they're proud people. It doesn't matter what some judge says, they're not going to start speaking French, not in Tulsa at least.In ten years we'll all be wearing burkas and speaking French and it won't even seem weird.Oh wait, that's stupid.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: I suspect the Venn diagram of "Idiots who voted for these laws" and "Idiots who ran as a 'small government constitutional conservative'" bears a suspicious resemblance to the flag of Japan.
DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: Ratified treaties have the force of US law.
TheMysteriousStranger: This particular monstrosity was actually a ballot initiative that passed 70.08% - 29.92%.
Fuggin Bizzy: bigsteve3OOO: Its nice to see the ACLU back on track and fighting the good fight again. During the 90s and 00s they were jujst a christian bashing entity.Agreed. For once, I'm on board with the ACLU.
d23: anti-Sharia Law amendments/laws is the only thing that is more pure unmitigated bullshiat than 40 anti-obamacare votes.I swear... what the fark is going on?
DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: Ratified treaties have the force of US law.US law can be ruled unconstitutional by Supremes.Q: Has any ratified treaty or portion of a treaty been ruled unconstitutional by Supremes?/too lazy to google for myself.
Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: Ratified treaties have the force of US law.No, ratified treaties, along with the constitution, represent "the supreme law of the land." That's a bit different from just being another law passed by congress.
