Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s comments were totally inappropriate for her position as Supreme Court judge.
In his State of the Union Address, President George W. Bush proposed the formation of a USA Freedom Corps, calling for every American "to commit at least two years 4,000 hours over the rest of your lifetime to the service of your neighbors and your nation."
This will require 80 hours per year for every adult American. On Jan. 29, 2002, at another function, Bush further explained the concept and gave a pitch for the "volunteer" program that will require $560 million from taxpayers by 2003.
I don't know Georgia militia leader Bob Starr or James McCranie, but by The Telegraph's own coverage they are being accused of and imprisoned for dubious charges not substantiated by the testimony of their BATF accusers in the judicial hearings held in Macon on May 6.
