The White House says President Barack Obama has signed a bill making it a crime to lie about receiving a military medal.

The measure revives a law struck down by the Supreme Court in 2006.

I assume he approves of the practice?
SOUNDS good, but with MorroccoBomber NOTHING is what it seems;
This is PREP for shutting up TALK-SHOW HOSTS.
If I had been in Congress, I would have attempted an amendment to make it a crime to lie about medals I throw away! Oh, wait, that would have affected Kerry. :(
Ruling by decree isn’t the way things are done here.
Oh suuuuure he’s concerned about the Military, OH SURE HE IS....!
Mark my words, this is the start of a play on the First Amendment —I don’t care HOW many times he puts on a military jacket and goes around saluting miitary people.
How much did he care about the SEALs, huh..?
This is a trial balloon for making certain speech-associated behavior ILLEGAL.
Same with the recent DOJ activity these past couple days about criticizing Muslims.
WATCH THIS SNAKE.
But 0, your own religion condones lying if it benefits the muslims - so what gives?
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
0dumb0Crap must have knocked himself out on this bill. A thousand to one, it will be used to prosecute white, conservative, patriotic, Christian Americans. Rat bastard commie muzzzlim pig!
Now he’s overturning supreme court decisions by decree.
While I didn’t like the supreme court decision, I certainly hope people are willing to oppose the emperor on this even great wrong.
What’s next, overturning Citizens United with the wave of his scepter?
You bet it is.
And ironically signed off by a big liar.
[[signs bill on lying about military medals]]
And then turns aroudn and signs a BILL to allow lying on benghazi and by the IRS and by Auttourney generals
This is a blow to bullchit artists everywhere.
The measure revives a law struck down by the Supreme Court in 2006.Had Zero *been* in the Senate when the original law was passed, he'd have voted "present" or "no".
I believe Kerry didn’t lie about receiving medals, he just threw fake medals over a fence at a demonstration, and he lied about that.
