    "Monetary gain" being the key phrase. Personally, I don't care if someone wants to lie to me about their service record. We generally find their lies through an FOIA request to NPRC. We can then expose them for what they are. Free speech and all.

    Does anyone know if the Supreme Court "Justices" have ever been in the Armed Services?
    I was never a hero, but I am thankful I served among them.

    Heck, at least one of them (don't recall her name at the moment, nor care to) has never even been a judge before.

    Assuming the bios on the Supreme Court website are comprehensive, only one has any military experience, Kennedy in the California Army National Guard.

    That's Kagan. But it's not unusual for justices to have little or no time on the bench. Of the current crop, four have less than four years on the bench: Kagan - none, Roberts - less than three, Scalia - less than four years, Thomas - less than two years. The rest have at least 13 years on the bench, with Sotomayor topping the list with 17 years there.

    As for the ruling on this law, it was correct, even if it stinks. There is no point in having a first amendment if you don't use it to protect speech that is repulsive; non-offensive speech doesn't need protecting.

    Well, as a vet, this decision just disgusts me. Persons lying about military honors is an affront to those who really did receive the honors. And after the you-know-what decision today, I just don't understand what this current SCOTUS is up to with decisions like this. And, we can't vote them out!

    Do you really want the Government to control what a person says? Do you think their involvement would stop with this one example?

    I don't blame 'ya. Sooner or later you were going to come up against somebody that could shoot straight.

    Medal of Honor, Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart and other replica medals go on sale tomorrow :

    * impress your friends and family
    * impress your neighbors
    * impress woman at bars.
    * wear them when you are out and impress people walking by
    * wear them in parades
    * make up stories of things that never occurred, and revise them monthly, no one will ever know
    * We'll even put them on your grave stone, to impress people in the future..... that you must have been "some kind of guy" .


    The 'dishonor' of this is to those who served and through their actions .... were awarded those medals, and who never did what they did ... because they thought they might get a medal for it. To those that were awarded these medals in real life, received more than a medal.... they earned respect, honor, showed true valor..... and were called "heroes", something those fake idiots will never get, nor ever understand.
