Supreme Court Rules the World

For the past couple of days I have been hearing supreme court rulings broadcast on the radio. On the 28th they decided that prisons were able to limit their inmate's reading material to religious and 'general interest' text. Prison officials are allowed to limit prisoner access as "punishment" for inmates who don't behave themselves. A few of the justices disented because they consider such a limit violates the first amendment right to 'receive, to read, and to think.' how un-American to think religious material could limit your ability to think.

The court also decided the USA does not have to follow the Internationally agreed upon rules of the Geneva Convention.

Maybe they made all these pro-Bush rulings because they were trying to make up for their Thursday decision which said that the secret courts on Guantanamo are not legal...
