“The Ten Commandments” replaced by “The Five Commandants”

So many of our laws are based on the Ten Commandments, but we have to continue to pretend they’re not.

In another 5-to-4 ruling, led by pretty much the usual gang of unconstitutional bungweasels, the Supreme Court has decided that the Ten Commandments can’t be displayed in courtrooms. You still have to swear on a Bible to tell the truth, but I’m guessing that’s coming up on the docket real soon, and the oath will soon become:

“Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help insert deity of your choosing here, and if you choose not to recognize any particular deity, promise to try to recall the facts as you know them despite the fact that you have no reason not to lie?”

The irony is that the Supreme Court’s anti-Chrisian crusades has become a regular visit to the Church of the Non-Believer. A place where words of discouragement are the daily sermon, and everyone tithes 20 percent of their time to denying God a place in national discourse. In other words, the Court’s quest has become everything they claim to stand against – a religion practiced in public.

"Armed Robe-ery" brings on an anonymous letter

An unsigned letter regarding my column this week on the Supreme Court helping to stamp out private property rights:

Sounds like you’ve been to law school and know all the ins and outs of the facts in this issue, so we’ll bow to your opinion instead of people who have decades more of a legal education than you do.

You don’t need to have a law degree to spot a cow flop. When it comes to what could eventually be the ruination of this country, history may record that it was caused by people with an impressive “legal education.”

What will be interesting is if somebody uses this “who will put the most tax money into the public trough gets the property because it’s in the ‘public good'” ruling against the government.

I outlined it briefly in the column, but what if I’m a developer and want to construct a strip mall over some federal office building somewhere? The Supreme Court has set the precedent as to the “public good” is whoever will pay the most taxes. Well, my mall would certainly pay more into the system via taxes than the federal building, which is taxes.

What would happen in the case of Me v. Uncle Sam? We’d spend day one presenting opening arguments to the Court, and then on the way home my brakes would fail and I’d go over a cliff. Ralph Nader would then have a fresh crusade against the safety record of the auto industry, and everybody would forget about the case.

Bill and Hillary holding hands is a shining example of what a model marriage… is nothing like

The New York Daily News has a headline reading “Bill, Hil, join hands at Graham crusade.” How cute. This is a marriage that has hit so many rocks that you’d think it was being driven by Captain Hazelwood, and through it all, those kids can still hold hands. How romantic. How special. How… politically driven.

America hasn’t seen this kind of awkward and phony display of marital affection since Michael Jackson kissed Lisa Marie Presley.

We’ll see if the “loving marriage” routine works when Hillary hits the presidential campaign trail. The funny thing is that they seem to think they’re fooling people. In reality, when they’re together and displaying affection, they’re able to hide their true feelings about as well as kids who are being forced to eat spinach.

At what has been called his “final revival”, Billy Graham called the Clintons “A great couple.”

“A great couple” of what?

Graham also joked that Bill Clinton should become an evangelist and allow “his wife to run the country.” You left the third letter, “i”, out of the word “run”, Reverend.

Investigation finds corrupt Nigerian rulers have stolen billions over the years — Also gains "credible evidence" that pro wrestling isn't real

Nigeria’s “anti-corruption commission”, a late entry into the “oxymoron of the year” competition, has found that past rulers of that country have stolen or misused billions of dollars.

The amount of money “missing” amounts to all the western aid given to Africa in four decades. This will no doubt prompt many vacuous liberal dingbat performers at the Live8 concerts to offer this up as concrete evidence that the west is giving way to little money. These people won’t be happy until there are trillions of dollars in aid stolen by crooked leaders and warlords. Then, and only then, will we know that the west is compassionate to African plight.

From "SCOTUS" to "SCROTUM": A new acronym is needed for the robed ones

The Supreme Court has ruled that your home is sacred, unless the city decides they need a hotel there instead.

Now I know why the Supreme Court outlawed medically prescribed marijuana… so there would be more left for the Supreme Court to smoke.

This from the New York Times:

The Supreme Court ruled today, in one of its most closely watched property rights cases in years, that fostering economic development is an appropriate use of the government’s power of eminent domain.

The 5-to-4 decision cleared the way for the city of New London, Conn., to proceed with a large-scale plan to replace a faded residential neighborhood with office space for research and development., a conference hotel, new residences and a pedestrian “riverwalk” along the Thames River.

One woman who will now have to move has lived in the same house for
87 years, ever since she was born.

I’m sure the government broke the news to her gently: “Unless you want your tombstone to be a Fuddruckers sign, beat it Grandma!”

John Paul Stevens wrote in the majority opinion that the city’s plan “unquestionably serves a public purpose.” Well, so does plowing under the Supreme Court building, but we don’t have the right to do that, do we?

Joining Stevens, who was nominated to the Court by Gerald Ford, apparently after falling down the steps of Air Force One and suffering a closed-head injury, were “librarian from hell” Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, mamma’s boy David Souter, stain left on the Court by Bill Clinton alongside the Ginsburg discharge– Stephen Breyer, and Anthony Kennedy, who proves that even Reagan
made mistakes.

Yes indeed, the same group that said juveniles can’t receive the death penalty because other countries would think it’s icky is back with a vengeance.

SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) is morphing into SCROTUM (Supremely Crappy Rulings of the Unconstitutional Majority) right before our eyes.

An Oasis from the Live8 insanity

Noel Gallagher, guitarist for Oasis, has some words for the organizers of the Live8 concert, the Live Aid sequel that partly hopes to raise money for the starving in Africa, and in part to convince nations to forgive Africa’s debt.

Here’s part of what Gallagher said:

“Correct me if I’m wrong, but are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is on a quick 15 minute break at Gleneagles (in Scotland) and sees ANNIE LENNOX singing SWEET DREAMS and thinks, ‘F**k me, she might have a point there, you know?'”

Excuse me for a second, but “Hahahaha!”

You know, I’m a little relieved, because the headline read “Gallagher says Live8 will never work.” I was thinking, “Maybe he thinks it could use a watermelon smashing act.” Thankfully, it wasn’t that Gallagher.

This is right up there with Peter Hitchens column for the Daily Mail, “Can the starving children of Africa save our has-been pop stars yet again?” I wish I could link to that, but it’s a subscription only, and I only subscribe to Sports Illustrated and certain conspiracy theories.

Democrats in-depth investigation finds that wherever they lose is where there are voting problems

The Democratic Party conducted an investigation over what they consider voting irregularities in Ohio. Their conclusion? More than a quarter of all voters and more than half of all black voters experienced problems at the polling place. One of the major problems? Way to many of them voted for Bush.

The good news is that, if you’re a Republican, the Democrats spend so much time dwelling on the past that they never see the tree they’re racing towards at 80 mph. By the time they see it, there’s only time for Howard Dean to yell “Heyaahhh!”

Funny how the voting “problems” always seem to coordinate exactly with whichever swing state was the one to drive the final stake through the heart of another Democrat candidate. The hilarious thing is how they follow-through with a fallacy of their own invention by “investigating” their own desperate accusations. In this aspect, the DNC is like a person who claims to have seen Bigfoot just to get into the newspaper, then when doubted, is then forced to go out and “prove” the existence of a creature they know very well doesn’t exist. You’d think they’d have better things to do with their time.

The 2004 election is nothing. My guess is that Al Gore is still in the basement of a Broward County courthouse, covered in chads, desperately searching for more votes.

God help you if you’re in the next swing state that is “dumb enough” to not vote for the Democrat presidential candidate, because your state will be crawling with Democratic “investigators” for the next dozen years.
