Supreme Court Sides With Navy Over Whales

So much for Pacific whales. I guess the Supreme Court doesn't hold much with the ecosystem's value. I guess they don't think it's important the ecosystem maintains life on earth (life such as, say, Supreme Court justices) through a complex network of species interaction.

This decision was 5-4. Thanks George W. Bush, for stacking the court with science ignoramuses. That'll continue to serve us well long after you're run out town.

Someone should have shown this Court the Star Trek movie where the whales determined whether our planet survived and they were considered the "intelligent" species of this planet.

And you are right, the Bush legacy will live on when he is out of office. It hurts.
