Appeals Court Throws out Constitution, Defends Government Discrimination

XIV Amendment - Section 1.
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Channel 3000 Excerpt:
The ruling stated that Act 10’s prohibition on payroll dues deduction does not violate the First Amendment.

The ruling states, "Nothing supports treating the selective prohibition of payroll deductions as a burden on or obstacle to the speech of general employee unions. Instead, Act 10 simply subsidizes the speech of one group, while refraining from doing so for another."

Government subsidizing the speech of one group vs another = discrimination. Selective prohibition = discrimination = undue burden. I can't imagine what they were thinking. But wait, it gets even better, or worse depending on your politics...

Full Ruling Excerpt:
As I said at the outset, elections have consequences.

Sure elections have consequences, but on rulings?

Full Ruling Excerpt:
"The United States Constitution does not forbid all legislation that rewards friends and punishes opponents."

It's a really bad day for justice.
