Well, no shit.

In its final years in power, Saddam Hussein's government systematically extracted billions of dollars in kickbacks from companies doing business with Iraq, funneling most of the illicit funds through a network of foreign bank accounts in violation of U.N. sanctions.

Also, this guy's got a point.

Like the writer, I am in favor of 'civil unions,' and find the idea of a constitutional amendment on marriage abhorrent, and agree with the point (which doesn't actually appear until the end of the piece) that opposition to those things is not intrinsically "divisive." However don't forget that the role of the courts is to interpret existing law. The task of judges who were elected or appointed by elected officials is to decide what is or is not legal, according to the Constitution. That's why I detest the term 'activist judge.'
