    It's not against the law to tell a lie. Stolen Valor is, and should be repugnant, but illegal? That's not supported.

    As President of the United Federation of Planets, I support this ruling.

    I was just saying to Angelina Jolie in bed this morning, "You know, cupcake, if people can't figure out how to think critically when someone makes a bogus claim, they deserve to be lied to." And then I posted on a forum in my Rush Limbaugh persona that illegal aliens were swinging elections.

    This is complete and utter bullshit.

    I guess the court figured that the whole health care thing would be so big that no-one would notice this.

    It's a fucking travesty.

    It's not just a question of your average internet bullshit.

    People rely on military experience to help them get jobs.

    The guy who brought the case to congress got a job because he claimed 30 years of service in the Marines, as well as several commendations.

    It's a giant slap in the face to America's veterans.

    Now I can admit to everyone that I'm a five-star colonial.
