Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

W.T.F.!!

Found via Lucianne.com

BALTIMORE — The father of a Marine killed in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters was ordered to pay the protesters' appeal costs, his lawyers said Monday.

On Friday, Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered Snyder to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps. Phelps is the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's funeral in 2006.

The two-page decision supplied by attorneys for Albert Snyder of York, Pa., offered no details on how the court came to its decision.

Attorneys also said Snyder is struggling to come up with fees associated with filing a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court.

The decision adds "insult to injury," said Sean Summers, one of Snyder's lawyers.

The high court agreed to consider whether the protesters' message is protected by the First Amendment or limited by the competing privacy and religious rights of the mourners.

You. Are. Fucking. Shitting Me.

Evidently this was a reversal of the initial decision by a lower court that awarded the father punitive damages. Okay, I understand some dumbshit judge with zippo common sense or compassion might reverse the judgment. But this is punishing the father for standing up to a bunch of bigoted assholes who take the opportunity provided by a grieving family to push an agenda.

If anyone can come up with more information (like where we can send some money to this man) please pass it on.

We have a local DJ, Darla Jaye on KMBZ Radio, who is thinking of starting a collection to help out the marine father. If she does, I will let you know. You can look her up at www.kmbz.com She definitely has a face for radio!

Unfortunaly every nutcase has the right to do what ever they want to.That being said what we done to the grieving father by a court of law (??)is beyound me.

When I heard this I thought I must have misunderstood.

This judge needs to be disbarred. I can't believe that this will be allowed to stand. Maybe if the father went to his Congressman or Senator for help. I don't know...I just know that there is no way in hell I would pay Westboro church one dime. I would rather go to jail first and then when it's all over the news, we'll see who blinks. I'll lay odds the decision will be overturned.

SV I couldn't have said better myself. These inbred heretical assholes can spew all their neurotic venom all they want elsewhere. I'm with Mary Ellen, I wouldn't pay them ONE CENT! This needs to be overturned!
