Stolen Valor

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that

a three-year-old federal law
that makes false claims
to have received a medal from the U.S. military
a crime

is unconstitutional.

The court majority said that "there was no evidence that such lies harm anybody, and there's no compelling reason for the government to ban such lies".

So now these LIES and the lying LIARS who tell them are protected by the First Amendment.

This is an unbelievable, unforgivable insult to every man and woman who have served, are serving and will serve their country in uniform.
