Quotes

...My logic went something like this, "If I'm going to get soaked, I might as well be making progress toward a place where I can dry off as opposed to standing still, watching a band with which I am only vaguely familiar."
"The commission fails to identify a compelling state interest," the opinion states. "It raises three rationales in support of the challenged provisions: 1) regulating gambling, including reducing the size of the gambling industry in Texas; 2) combating fraud by ensuring that bingo proceeds are only used in support of charities, not lobbyists; and 3) promoting charities - that is, ensuring charities do not forgo spending their bingo revenue on their charitable purpose by squandering those funds on political advocacy. Notably, as the charities and the district court stated, the commission never attempts to characterize these interests as compelling. Indeed, the commission never purports to justify the challenged provisions under strict scrutiny review. Rather, the commission merely contends that the rationales are substantial state interests."
"Losing a husband or a wife in war is a profound loss and a huge sacrifice made on behalf of our nation," said Merkley. "We should do everything in our power to ensure that Americans whose spouses are killed in the line of duty get a fair shot to rebuild their lives and provide for their children. Expanding the Fry Scholarship will put higher education within reach of more spouses who are supporting their families while they go back to school. I urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to pass this legislation and get it to the President's desk without delay."
Andrea Lemmons, the co-lead of the Family Resource Group, said, "You know, those people that are going through similar situation for support that maybe family and friends can't provide because they don't fully understand the situation that this family member is going through. Personally, I’ve made lifelong friendships through this deployment that I know will continue, and I know if I have questions with what's going on with my soldier, I know who to call first because they have a little more insight than my personal friends and family members would."
