Well, if the Center for Individual Rights were reconsidering their stance on the Texas anti sodomy law in Texas after my scathing post by lending their legal muscle and expertise to this case, it's too late now. They probably never would have anyway, in fear of offending the bible beating conservatives that make up the majority of their contributors.

I hadn't heard much about this case recently, and then I mention it in a post this week and lo and behold - the Supreme Court hands down their ruling. Funny how these things work out, isn't it? Don't even bother with trying to interpret Scalia's leagl babbling. I love how sacred individual rights and states rights are to these bozos until somoeone the GOP doesn't like does something they don't approve of, and then the constitution and all that legal precedent goes out the door.

More depressing article and updates about the gap between the poor and the rich. It just keeps getting worse.
