Speak Out

The Marshall Democrat-News invites readers to share their views and questions on any issue. Open discussions are often useful and enlightening. Criticism is acceptable as an important part of public conversations, but we expect everyone to treat others with respect. Experience suggests it is best not to post comments while angry. We reserve the right to delete comments that we think include personal attacks, are disrespectful, threatening, obscene or in other ways objectionable. Anyone who repeatedly violates this policy will be banned from participating in our forums.

Read the ruling. If they'd like to look back & change it sometime than that's up to them. As of right now the ruling is what it is and it states pretty simply what is & isn't qualified under it.

Unless the court rules 9-0 on a topic, there is always opposite opinion. Just because you agree with it doesn't make it anymore right or wrong than the other opinion.

As for your argument that dissenting opinions don't matter please reference:

Dread Scott vs Sanford

Plessy vs Ferguson

Olmsted vs United States

Miners vile school district vs Gobitis

Korematsu vs United States

Abington vs Schempp

FCC vs Pacifica


Lawrence vs Texas where Scalia's own words got shoved down his throat by a tiny little old lady.
