This is what passes for adult discussion on Facebook by the “left” in Alaska. Unfortunately, Facebook often shows posts out of the actual time order, but I have done my best to offer what Facebook provides. And the thread lives on; those of you addicted to Facebook can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/shannyn.moore/posts/10152376543178021?comment_id=10152376598923021. The most illuminating comment? Perhaps the one that goes something like, “This is Shannyn’s wall and she can say whatever she wants on it….”
For those of you not familiar with the underlying issue, though the Alaska District Court almost spanked the State of Alaska in his decision (http://alaskapolicy.net/PublicRecords/HambyOrder.pdf), the Governor sought a stay there (http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/content/view.php?pk_id=0000000767), and when it was denied he sought a stay in the 9th Circuit, which afforded him two days to seek a stay before the Supreme Court (http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles\14a413.htm). of the actions of an attorney with respect to requesting a stay for his client. Kyle Duncan is the name of the attorney retained by the State of Alaska to appear before the Supreme Court. And it is Kyle Duncan, whatever his personal affairs may be, that this crowd is attacking, over his professional obligations, which suggests that this group should likely revisit their high school civics class.
If you stayed awake during History class you may remember that John Adams famously agreed to undertake the defense of the soldiers charged in what became known as the Boston Massacre.
Jack Balkin pointed out some aspects of Hobby Lobby missed by most (http://balkin.blogspot.com/2014/02/compendium-of-posts-on-hobby-lobby-and.html) as did Andrew Koppelman (http://www.newrepublic.com/article/118488/hobby-lobby-decision-was-victory-womens-rights).
I am not a paid troll. Whether I am simple and stupid? Well I suppose that is for you to decide 😉
This is the asshat Parnell hired to represent Alaska against marriage equality. The douche from Hobby Lobby. Because “religious liberty” means you should be free to practice Parnell’s religion. Our tax payer dollars hard at bigotry. http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/people/kyle-duncan
