    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    from the article:
    Feldman ruled that the government had to pay the legal fees for the lawsuit, which are “substantial,” according to the firm handling it. That means taxpayers get the bill both ways.
    Too bad they couldn't think up a better punishment. The government's getting "fined" out of their resevoir of taxpayer dollars.

    This is really why I hate law though, since we have a common law system its really up to the Judges to decide what is legal and illegal, how the law is interpreted, and how its meanings will gradually change over time. Meaning a huge part of our law is grounded in somebody's opinion, of course its their opinion on the written law but still.

    Probably why they felt they had nothing to lose by violating the ruling. There is such a thing as criminal contempt, but I doubt the judge would go there.

    No, I didn't misunderstand anything. You made a point about bitching about others proving a claim then went out of your way to make a claim of your own without actually proving it.

    I quoted the claim, now if you wish not to be hyprocite yourself, prove it.
