The military is tax funded. Doesn't mean you can walk into a military base as you please.
There are rules and most of them have to do with security. Life's a bitch, then you die.
This was set aside for a reason. The question over whether the individuals who turned the two bumper sticker owners away could be sued, or whether the Administration officials sponsoring the event and used the volunteers who turned the attendees away are more properly to be sued, is the larger issue at stake.
Justice Ginsburg objected to not taking this case (as did Justice Sotomayor) but she was pleased that the larger question is thereby more likely to be taken up by the Supremes.
It ain't over.

so in this case, who knows but pissing and moaning about the Supremes not taking up this case is hardly do to sinister reasons.
It is kind of stupid this went to the Supreme Court. This was a speech at a private venue where it was decided but not mandatory to open it to the public. The Bush people had every right to toss whomever they wanted for just about any reason. You can all it bad taste or cowardice but not unconstitutional. I hope they got their money back. That is about all they were entitle to sue for.
The Supreme Court declined to hear a case? Alert the media!
In all seriousness, I don't see why they need to hear this case. SCOTUS prefers to rule on cases with broad national interest, and I prefer it that way.
