The time of year has come and gone, once again, when we all look into our course catalogs and try to decide which classes to (attempt to) register for.

The new ploy of subverting democracy in a mad dash effort to institute liberal policies from the decrees of kangaroo courts is fast becoming a favorite maneuver for Americas far-left. It therefore, came as no surprise when the Massachusetts Supreme Court was even considering the issue of gay marriage and then ruling with overwhelming consent (in a 4-3 decision) to radically redefine the institution of marriage by allowing same-sex marriages. It was a clear and decisive victory for gay rights activists.
