    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?
