I predict even with a win in court, floodgates for applications may open but this will result inzero PERMITS being issued. The agencies will run out of applications, have a broken livescan machine, the sheriff is on vacation, your thumbprint isnt clear enough, ran out of rice papaper, sheriff couldnt find a pen, you took training on a weekend we only accept midweek training, and on and on. Each one of these requires a 3 year case to resolve. Do you really think the Sheriff of SF will just say "ok"?
So it turns out the speed of light is not constant. That means we really know nothing about our beginning; scientifically of course...
