    Supreme Court rejects stolen valor law; but boosts Utah congressman


    These fakes cheapen everything that real veterans have ever done....

    And they may as well piss on the real heroes who have earned the Medal of honor.

    I do hope some congressman rewrites this law so it will pass muster........

    Indeed.

    This is a wise and appropriate ruling, consistent with decades of free expression jurisprudence. Government has no justification to preempt certain speech, regardless how offensive.

    SCOTUS prefers a more "finely tailored" law that respects the traditions of the US Military that keeps their freaking black robed butts safe while they authorized a 3,000 page mess that is about as tailored as a car load of hippies. Go figure.

    I agree 100%, get a well written law in place. The fraudulent pretense of EARNED military decorations SHOULD be a crime.

    So who would decide a veteran's awards are legitimate?
