Here's the deal...the USSC left it open for reinterpretation by Congress. Pass a law based on fraud, saying that you can't profit or deceive people using fake vet's status. That should pass.

Making lying illegal was never going to work. If it was, Congress would have to dissolve permanently, and all the politicians would be out on the street begging for work! LOL

Who cares. Medals are doggie treats for vacuous twits. Real heroes remain anonymous. Where's Vera Baker?

I strongly disagree with this ruling. It should be a crime for anyone to claim military service or metals. I take pride in the fact that I served this nation in the United States Marine Corps and in the few metals that I did earn… the problem is that there a too many wannabes who feel a need to claim valor that they didn’t earn. I am very happy with the court’s ruling on immigration and Health Care, but I feel like they dropped the ball on this one… free speech or no free speech I wouldn’t respond to kindly to someone claiming valor they didn’t earn…

Nevertheless, I’m still giddy about the tea-baggers taking it on the chin (pun intended) on Health Care Reform, LOL!

The demcoratic governor of connecticutt breathed a sigh of relief after the decision.
Pretending to be a Miliatry Hero will not cost him anything. From today forth Medals will have no value. No big deal as America is only Obama Nation now.

Attention moron cow patty...I bet a fraud like you is glad and giddy. However, it does not stop there with you or the lord marshal. Time marches on and time will end an obamanation.
Now that obamacare is an official TAX after obama proclaimed in many interviews it was not a TAX it means b. h. obama lied to the American people. It's a lie they will not ignore because it will effect their wallets big time. So I hate to pee on you and your parade but contrary to media spin the ruling is also the death nail for the lord marshal b. h. obama come November.

Mitt Romney war deferment "hero" just like Rush Limbaugh.

Difference is that Romney actually demonstrated FOR the Nam war while getting 4 deferments for himself.

Republiscums have no limits.

'Though an early supporter of the Vietnam War, Romney avoided military service at the height of the fighting after high school by seeking and receiving four draft deferments, according to Selective Service records.


He said in 2007 — his first White House bid under way — that he had "longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam." But his actions, Selective Service records and previous statements show little interest in joining a conflict that ultimately claimed more than 58,000 American lives.


Military veterans suggest that Romney's own decision not to serve in the military is in conflict with his pro-military rhetoric."

I see the mandate explanation was to sophisticated for some of you to understand and now you guys are here repeating the Fox News new mantra. It's a tax...... ROFLMAO

No, the decision was based on the Taxing authority of Congress and the Mandate was constructed in a different section of the legislation, the Taxing portion.

The fine will be taken from Tax Returns that citizens are due, and the IRS is instructed in the legislation to not pursue the $95.00 fine using tools which are customary in collections procedures.

It's a new day in America, you moochers will have to pay your own way now. No more free rides!

I heard a secession of paid shrills touting the "it's a tax" on all of the Fox broadcast today...... now some of you parrots are repeating the same nonsense.
