    The supremes voted 8 - 1 to disrespect dead US servicemen and in favor of talking ass-wipes. Not only that, but the dead soldiers family needs to pay for the ass-wipes' legal fees. They gave a son's life to defend the USSC and the US, and only Alito got the opinion right.

    Lets do a poll on who got it right, Alito or the pukes.

    The ONLY answer to "bad" speech is MORE speech. A founding principle the soldiers gave their lives to protect.

    Dead soldiers were honored today. Not "pissed on."

    Much as it angers me that anyone would disrepect such a solemn event..I grudgingly see the wisdom here.

    I don't see how imposing a restraining order of 500 yards, as a consideration of the noise pollution, is a violation of Freedom of Speech???

    I believe that free speech should be respected but I can't believe that somebody could be a big enough asshole to disrupt somebody's funeral - especially when that someone died protecting your free speech rights.

    That wasn't what the case was about. The distance restrictions will still be in place, set locally, as they should be.

    Free speech does have its boundaries and I think WBC crosses that boundary. However, should this case be one that further limits our speech? I'm not so sure it should be. I'd have to read more of the opinion than I did and know more of the facts.

    BUT I WOULD BE DAMNED IF I ORDERED THE FAMILY OF THE SOLDIER TO PAY FOR WBC's COURT COSTS.

    Guess what? The dead soldiers died for the right to speak freely. No matter how offensive. So the majority got it right.
