    Though you're getting warmer.
    Given that the plate's message is ultimately chosen and approved by the legislature through passage of an amendment, I don't see how this is public political speech, it's essentially the State of NC's political speech.

    It's not. They don't just have the one plate, they have a bunch of them. Essentially what they've done is to supply the public with the means to communicate the message they (individual members of the public) want to communicate. Hence, it's a public forum created by the government for public speech. The opinion goes into this issue in some detail.

    Both...

    Once is in the correct columns then you show the book off.

    I've seen cooked books before, I'm not a CPA tho, but what I did and recommended was nothing but "creative accounting advice."

    You want to talk about license plates or the philosophy behind the issue at hand.

    Nope. Hence the legislative process and need to approve every word put on the plate.

    The court heard that issue and addressed that in the ruling. A link has been provided up thread. Also a link to the ruling is available from the article linked in the OP.
    I may be wrong.

    So the books are sealed and available via Google. I must used the word sealed differently than you do.

    You obviously haven't read the opinion. You might want to do so before commenting further.

    Your argument is dishonest. It is clear what "choose life" implies to any informed person.
    Well it can 'imply' anything to anyone who lacks comprehension skills but in my case "Choose Life" means "Choose Life", and I'm not outraged at that point of view.
