Natural Laws

ln a 5 to 4 decision the Supreme Court today overturned the ninth circuit court of appeals decision which held that "regardless of whether they are mentioned in the constitution, the courts do not have the jurisdiction to declare unconstitutional the natural and scientific laws of nature. "

Justice Clarence Thomas, writing for the majority stated that "... if the drafters of the constitution had wanted grafity to exist, it would have stated in the bill of rights, 'it being necessary for the people of the United States not to fly wildly above the earth, government of the United States she'll take no action to deprive the people of the right to have gravity.'"

In a concurring opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia stated, that he believed that this holding "...Would invalidate all same sex marriages throughout the United States because we no longer recognize the laws of attraction. "

In what is believed to be the shortest dissenting opinion, in the history of the court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, "Oy vey iz mir!"
