In Stunning 5-4 Decision, Supreme Court Declares Air Force Unconstitutional | The Duffel Blog

Washington D.C. – The U.S. Supreme Court, in a shocking decision, declared that the U.S. Air Force is unconstitutional earlier today. In a 5-4 decision, the high court mandated a complete redistribution of personnel, equipment, and funds, ‘in a more constitutionally permissible manner.’

The controversial decision is the end result that began at Elgin Air Force Base near Valparaiso, Florida. About seven years ago, Jonathan Smith, a local business owner, filed a civil suit against the Department of Defense. In the suit, Smith claimed that Elgin Air Force Base impermissibly acquired a one mile stretch of his privately owned property by improperly installing a large fence. Among other legal issues, Smith argued that the National Security Act of 1947 had unconstitutionally established the United States Air Force, and therefore, any appropriation of his land was improper despite other legal justifications.

  1. Bwahahahahahahahaha! I didn’t know this was going on, and didn’t even think of it. AAF, here we come! Can we go back to Pinks and Greens.

    This is real isn’t it?

    1. Actually a case can be made for such a ruling and wouldn’t put it past the SCOTUS to make such a ruling if it were convenient for them.

      1. The obvious answer is that the Air Force is an army:

        To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

    1. Hey, hey…

      Them scarfs, loathsome as they are, are handy for tying ’em to the bed posts. If you never wash ’em, they’re like a log book.

    1. I had never heard of Duffel Blog before. So I carried on before I actually read it as that’s too good a story to check. But I then went and read it and when I saw Eglin misspelled throughout the article I knew it was bogus. I then poked around a bit more and saw a “post” that said teh Navy was going to put strip bars on Carriers.

      I sent that one to BillT with the line “we were in at the wrong time and place.” I sent the “AF Unconstitutional” post to the Armorer so he could use it for Dusty’s benefit. He’s “linked it on the Facebook page and if that doesn’t snag him, I’ll go after him on the blog.”

  2. QM, I can’t recall which post started me out, but one or two of the milblogs I follow occasionally link to Duffleblog, so I had a previous exposure. Their work is pretty good, as well as pretty funny.

  3. Since the Navy is already a better air force than the Air Force, maybe they should take over, not the Army.
