Mr. Weinbaum – I have a difficult time understanding your continual ranting about the three crosses. You have filed your lawsuit. The courts will decide. End of story.

Well, Mr. Chambers, you do understand that this is not a Magistrate's Court argument over something as ordinary as rolling through a stop sign, don't you?
While those elected officials of the Las Cruces Public Schools and the City of Las Cruces maintain their position backed by ignorant bliss that it is OK to deny citizens their civil liberties those same citizens have to wage battle for their equality. In the meanwhile those officials enjoy the full measure of civil privileges guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution; those same privileges they deny others.
Perhaps if you were aware of all the true facts
that lead to the filing of both lawsuits in federal court and the ensuing shenanigans that put both cases now before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals you may have a different view.
Justice has always been the primary goal. Here is a question for you: How can a person of a particular faith put up a symbol, whether single or multiple, that is known throughout the world to represent that faith, and then the individual denies the symbol is religious? The U.S Supreme Court ruled it was religious.

-Further to fortune cookies and noodles, ask for the list of contributors to the Clinton library. Some interesting foreign contributors might show up.

Of all people, you should know how this works. The Courts make rulings based on legal precedents. The Supreme Court has already ruled (in the Ten Commandments Case) that if a symbol has been in public for many years, and nobody has ever questioned it, then it has caused no harm, and therefore does not violate the Establishment Cause. You filed your City suit AFTER the Supreme Court ruling.

Once again, let the courts do their job. Until then, take a chill pill.

Ah. Are you assuming I am a lawyer? You are aren't you? You surely know of the two separate cases where the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that if the defendants' do not or refuse to provide requested documentation to the plaintiffs' it is the responsibility of the defendants' to prove the plaintiffs' charges are invalid. Not the other way around. This was brought to the attention of the sitting judge after the school district and the city repeatedly refused to provide public documentation.

When you have time look up the 'compare and contrast' of the Texas and Kentucky cases with Las Cruces that the judge ordered me to file with the court. It's in the docket. The defense did not have to file one. Why is that?

There is no pill that will cure injustice and prejudice.

my goodness... the pill you should take,
Mr. Weinbaum, is perhaps a midol.
