Marble from "Equal Justice Under Law" Supreme Court facade Falls to ground
Now do the Dems, having been handed one great sysmbolic event, have the balls to run with it?



Large Chunk Of Marble Falls From Supreme Court Building
No Injuries Reported

http://www.nbc4.com/news/5417258/detail.html

WASHINGTON -- A basketball-sized piece of marble moulding fell from the facade over the entrance to the Supreme Court, landing on the steps near visitors waiting to enter the building.

No one was injured when the stone fell. The marble was part of the dentil moulding that serves as a frame for the frieze of statues atop the court's main entrance.

The large piece of marble fell from the building's facade above the words "Equal Justice Under Law" just before 10 a.m.

The justices are meeting Monday to issue orders and hear arguments.

1. This isn't for the Democrats to run with
It's for US to run with.

The Democratic party per se ought to stay clear of rump theology and save their balls for bigger game.

On the other hand, we are a bunch of left-wing, Michael Moore loving, god-hating libbrul trouble makers. We can do pretty much what we want to and let the party mugwumps off the hook.

Yep, we're the ones who get to raise hell. Yee-hah!

--p!

3. If it wiped out 'Equal Justice under law', it wasn't an accident. It was
removed at the request of the White House and our beloved dictator!

4. True - but the letters 'Equal Justice under law' remain- just part of that
facade.
