Judge Confirms: Oregon Engineer Has a First Amendment Right to Call Himself an Engineer

A federal judge has ruled that the Oregon Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying violated the First Amendment when it tried to fine Mats Järlström—an Oregonian with a degree in engineering and years of experience in the field—for describing himself as “an engineer.” In a ruling issued Friday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Stacie F. Beckerman issued a permanent injunction against the board’s enforcement of the relevant rules, which had included trying to fine Järlström $500 for describing himself as an engineer in a non-professional context.

War is Money….

Since when does bringing troops home from overseas bring morale down? It seems to me only those that have vested financial interest in keeping the insanity going have a problem with bringing the troops home. War should not continue in perpetuity.
