So it is election year.

And they are pandering to the "Religious Nuts" in America.

I see all these states passing these "Religious Liberty" laws.

They are so unconstitutional.

And they will get overturned in the Federal Courts.

So I look at these "laws" and I feel that the politicians who make them, and pass them, are the ones who should have to pay all the legal costs incurred when they land in the Federal Courts.

And why not?

Don't these states have attorneys who can look at these "laws" and tell them, "IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!"  And "YOU'RE GONNA END UP IN THE FEDERAL COURTS BECAUSE OF THESE LAWS AND THEY WILL BE STRUCK DOWN!"

And with the number of lawyers holding public office, one would tend to reason they should have stepped up and shot them down.

But hey, they are not the one's footing the legal costs for this.

THE TAXPAYERS OF THEIR RESPECTIVE STATES ARE!

So I fell this way, THE POLITICIANS WHO MAKE AND PASS THESE LAWS ARE THE ONES WHO NEED TO STEP UP AND ASSUME ALL LEGAL COSTS INCURRED...AND NOT THE TAXPAYERS.

But HEY!....

That's just me....

For some reason, the taxpayers in those states continue electing the same doofuses over and over again.

The doofuses sometimes lose, Daniel.

After the Dover, Pennsylvania, school board doofus majority put the wrongly-named Intelligent Design into the high school science classes, the state ACLU and other organizations took them to court. The doofus majority lost.

The six-figure cost to the school district's taxpayers captured the attention of enough voters to replace the doofuses with science-literate people.

In the final analysis, these laws amount to a waste of time, of legislators' resources and money spent on defenses of bills which a first-year law student could see were vulnerable to judicial scrutiny and ultimate rejection.  Yet because of the failure on the part of some politicians to separate faith from government, such bills not only come before state congresses but get passed.  I cannot escape the feeling that apathy on the part of the general citizenry allows these misguided legislative efforts to flourish.

In this case, the buck stops with us, with John Q. Public.  If we don't stop this crap, those with the agendas who want to promote the superimposition of church onto state will continue to propose such bills.  WE need to stop this.
