Third Branch

It was a busy day in the Supreme Court:

Supreme Court Backs Police in High-Speed Injury Cases

A police officer who deliberately rammed a car he was chasing, leaving the 19-year-old driver disabled, acted lawfully to protect others from harm, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday.

No doubt.

You can’t make an omelete without breaking a few eggs….

Court Favors Microsoft in Patent Dispute

The Supreme Court sided with Microsoft Corp. on Monday, finding that U.S. patent law doesn’t apply to software [manufactured from master disks in] foreign countries.

I suspect liberal-bots will be angry about that ruling.

Not because they have the first clue about patent law. Not in the slightest.

I suspect they’ll be angry for the sole reason they tend reflexively to hate Microsoft.

Court Refuses Gitmo Detainees’ Case

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear the case of two Guantanamo Bay prisoners who want to challenge the legality of military commissions [before which they are to stand trial].

Oh, well, cry me a river.

Money, Money, Money
Yeah, *That* Global War Against Islamo-Terrorism
