    Care to point to anything fake that I have posted? I have been known to be wrong, and I am quick to admit that, and change my beliefs as soon as credible evidence shows me to be wrong. I NEVER post ANYTHING I know to be fake unless it's a silly joke that nobody could be expected to believe anyway.

    In other words they Supreme Court agreed to the second watered down version of the a Travel Ban, smacking down the 9th circuit court's rulings, and in the process adding to its reputation as the most overturned court in the country.

    WINNING!

    They agreed to allow a small part of the 2nd watered down version to proceed. The majority of the 9th circuit's ruling as upheld. Yes, it is something, but not very much.

    It's huge victory of the Constitution against your ilk on the west coast and you know it.


    But doubt it..

    The west coast is great if you stay away from the beach

    A Sea Dirge - Poem by Lewis Carroll
    There are certain things - as, a spider, a ghost,
    The income-tax, gout, an umbrella for three -
    That I hate, but the thing that I hate the most
    Is a thing they call the Sea.

    Pour some salt water over the floor -
    Ugly I'm sure you'll allow it to be:
    Suppose it extended a mile or more,
    THAT'S very like the Sea.

    Beat a dog till it howls outright -
    Cruel, but all very well for a spree:
    Suppose that he did so day and night,
    THAT would be like the Sea.

    I had a vision of nursery-maids;
    Tens of thousands passed by me -
    All leading children with wooden spades,
    And this was by the Sea.

    Who invented those spades of wood?
    Who was it cut them out of the tree?
    None, I think, but an idiot could -
    Or one that loved the Sea.

    It is pleasant and dreamy, no doubt, to float
    With 'thoughts as boundless, and souls as free':
    But, suppose you are very unwell in the boat,
    How do you like the Sea?

    There is an insect that people avoid
    (Whence is derived the verb 'to flee').
    Where have you been by it most annoyed?
    In lodgings by the Sea.

    If you like your coffee with sand for dregs,
    A decided hint of salt in your tea,
    And a fishy taste in the very eggs -
    By all means choose the Sea.

    And if, with these dainties to drink and eat,
    You prefer not a vestige of grass or tree,
    And a chronic state of wet in your feet,
    Then - I recommend the Sea.

    For I have friends who dwell by the coast -
    Pleasant friends they are to me!
    It is when I am with them I wonder most
    That anyone likes the Sea.

    They take me a walk: though tired and stiff,
    To climb the heights I madly agree;
    And, after a tumble or so from the cliff,
    They kindly suggest the Sea.

    I try the rocks, and I think it cool
    That they laugh with such an excess of glee,
    As I heavily slip into every pool
    That skirts the cold cold Sea.

    Lewis Carroll
    Who said they did?

    Big deal. After several tries, and watering it down each time, they got the SC to approve a tiny part of the latest watered down version. If that's all it takes for you to celebrate, then have fun.
