Two Things About the Ninth Circus...err, Circut

This ruling is totally outragous:
9th Circuit Court Outrage! Parental Rights Denied

"The new ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stating, “There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children...Parents have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed while enrolled as students,” has Californians in an uproar, and rightfully so.

The liberal ninth district court known for it’s legislating from the bench, such as in the recent case where the court ruled the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because it contains the words ''under God,'' dismissed a lawsuit on November 3, 2005, by California parents who were sued the school district because a sex survey with inappropriate, nosey questions was given to children in the first, third, and fifth grades. The survey was administered by the Palmdale School District and asked students questions such as if they ever thought about having sex or touching other people’s “private parts” and whether they could ''stop thinking about having sex.''
A constant progresion these kinds of rulings makes this news that much more attractive:
GOP move to advance 9th Circuit split draws heat from Democrats

"WASHINGTON (AP) - A Republican plan to advance a break-up of the San Francisco-based Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals is drawing heat from Democrats.

House Republicans have included a break-up of the Ninth Circuit in a budget bill that would be immune from Senate filibuster.

The measure would create a Ninth Circuit covering California, Hawaii and the Pacific Islands, and a new 12th Circuit covering Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Arizona."
