Justice is sick

The Supreme Court has ruled a federal law designed to stop the sale and marketing of videos showing dog fights and other acts of animal cruelty is an unconstitutional violation of free speech.

The 8-1 decision was a defeat for animal rights groups and sponsors of the unusual congressional legislation.

The specific case before the court dealt with tapes showing pit bulldogs attacking other animals and one another in staged confrontations.


Let's see: corporations are persons, with a right to as much democracy as their money can buy them.

Animals however are property, existing to serve the commercial free speech rights of people who own them.

No, I don't blame the dogs; I blame the people.
