why courts are important!

it's about time.  time to go back to competing on a level field.  win or lose on your own.  if you can't cut it, you don't get the promotion.  white, black, green!!!  and STOP WHINING!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Also true of the Appellate Judge who got overturned in this case. :D
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.

Yes! (fist pumping in the air!!)  Awesome, awesome, awesome.  This case has had me very upset, and the thought of Sodawhatever getting into the Supreme Court after her assinine 'logic' (really racist rhetoric) sickened me.  Perhaps the tide is shifting a bit more than I thought.

it was a pretty narrow decision the way it was written, but it is a start.
