Frightening, but I doubt this will pass - A law that would "acknowledge God as the sovereign source of law, liberty [and] government" in the United States. What's more, it would forbid all legal challenges to government officials who use the power of the state to enforce their own view of "God's sovereign authority." Any judge who dared even hear such a challenge could be removed from office.

Geeze, this country can get more fucked up every day.

Anna Gregoline | October 21, 2004
I totally agree. I feel like I'm living in BizarroWorld.

Kris Weberg | October 21, 2004
That's so unconstitutional it's almost constitutional again.

Anna Gregoline | October 21, 2004
Amen, my brotha!

Todd Brotsch | October 21, 2004
Really....this is seven months old.....where have you been?

Kris Weberg | October 21, 2004
Well, let's see, about 7 months ago I started reading the Yankees thread...and here it's already late October!

Anna Gregoline | October 22, 2004
I read about it today, felt it was interesting and you might like to see it. Why the snarkiness?

Here's the bill if anybody wants to read it. Paraphrasing: 'The Supreme Court shall not have jurisdiction to review any matter to the extent that relief is sought against an officer of Federal, State, or local government by reason of that officer's acknowledgement of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government.' Creepy stuff in modern America.

There are some creepy people in modern America.

Are you sure it wasn't a joke?

Amy Austin | October 23, 2004
That *does* sound like a joke. Hard to tell with public access sometimes, though...

Who was is that asked, "When did we start spelling Amerika with a 'k'?" Funny thing about the ol' USSR though -- their government was atheistic! Kind of ironic, I think...

Exactly what I was thinking, Erik!

Kris Weberg | October 24, 2004
Public access -- because even FOX has some standards.

Anna Gregoline | October 25, 2004
Personally, I wish there were WAY more public access shows. Some of that stuff has been the funniest/bizarre things I've seen on television.

Erik! Did you read the Duct Tape Fashion thread???!!!

Kris Weberg | October 26, 2004
I dunno, after awhile laughing at public access insanity begins to feel guilty for me. It's not like the people on it are trying to be funny, most of the time.

Anna Gregoline | October 26, 2004
Sure, but they don't know you're laughing. It's ok.
