It’s No Longer Illegal To Be A Lying Lowlife Scumbag

You still can’t legally yell fire in a crowded theater, but thanks to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, it’s now your Constitutional right to pretend that you’re a member of the military and fraudulently wear fake medals in public.

Court again strikes down Stolen Valor Act

A federal appeals court panel ruled Tuesday that people have a right to lie about receiving military medals, the second federal court decision in a month to go against the Stolen Valor Act.

Xavier Alvarez, who falsely claimed in 2007 to have received the Medal of Honor, challenged the law on appeal after he was charged with violating the act, which makes it a crime to falsely claim to have won a military medal.

Alvarez said the act is a violation of free-speech rights.

A panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Alvarez in a 2-1 decision.

The majority said there was no evidence that such lies harm anybody, and there is no compelling reason for the government to ban such lies.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles said it is deciding whether to appeal the ruling.

No evidence that such lies harm anybody, how about the psychological harm to all the real veterans who actually served and were awarded real medals for their real sacrifices and real wounds? And what about the pain felt by the families of those medal recipients who gave the ultimate sacrifice?

/this ruling is such bull[expletive deleted], why does it not surprise me that it came out of California and the 9th Circus?

Jihad At Fort Hood

U.S. Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim, received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed before being transferred to Fort Hood.

Hasan, a Muslim, was disgruntled about being deployed to Afghanistan and disturbed by U.S. policy in Iraq and Afghanistan. He had previously stated that Muslims should “rise up” and attack Americans in retaliation for the US war in Iraq and had equated suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim, while shouting in Arabic, shot over 40 unarmed people today, most of them U.S. troops about to deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan, murdering more than ten.

Hasan was shouting the obligatory jihadi cry, Allahu akbar while he was mowing down unarmed soldiers!

Local soldier: Fort Hood shooting ‘a bloody mess’

James Hunt, 27, serving with the 510th Combat Engineers, was with his platoon at the base’s Soldier Readiness Center where soldiers who are about to be deployed undergo medical screening. He was scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan in January.

But because James had broken his foot several weeks ago, he was sent outside and told to get some extra paperwork that would clear him for deployment. James was waiting in the parking lot of the center when the shooting started, his father said.

“Everybody started running and shouting, and he saw the wounded come out,” Tom Hunt said. “He didn’t hear the shooting, but he said it was ‘a bloody mess.’”

Hunt said his son told him he loaded up many of the wounded and drove them to the hospital. The wounded relayed what they saw inside when the shooting happened.

“They were telling him that one guy was shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting,” Tom Hunt said. “He couldn’t say much more than that.”
