Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg slaps down EPA

by MeadowsMike on May 22, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


"...the Supreme Court, in a 9-0 decision, slapped down President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency’s arrogant denial of property owners’ right to contest in court the EPA’s administrative abuses.


If you can get Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia to agree that the government has overstepped its bounds, you know that the administration’s disregard of constitutional and statutory boundaries is as egregious as it is obvious."
