What's Up with the Department of Justice's website?

I think an organization's website reflects the organization's ideals and goals.  For instance, if I went to and found out they had pulled all the pictures of Christ and replaced them with, say, political leaders or clothing ads, I would be confused and upset.  I expect my church's website to display the ideals of my church.

I think there are some things going on in the Justice Department, and as reflected on their website, I think the changes are not good.

I got the following email, so I went to the Department of Justice's website and saw it for myself.

(The above are my comments.  Below is the forwarded email I received.)

Well, how interesting   It seems the U.S. Department of Justice has changed its web site.Gone are the colorful red, white, and blue U.S. Flag decorations on the page,
Replaced by stark black and white.

And at the top of the page, is a rather interesting quote:
"The common law is the will of Mankind, issuing from the Life of the People."

Catchy, huh?  Just one tiny little (too small to be relevant obviously) point --the quote is from C. Wilfred Jenks, who in the 1930's was a leading proponent of the "international law" movement, which had as its goal to impose a global common law and which backed 'global workers' rights.'

How very interesting that 'they' couldn't find a nice quote from one of our Founders

  1. Don't you think you're kind of reading a bit too much into this? Webpages get re-designed all the time- at least every other year or so- just to keep up with advances in technology and changes in their services; I think it looks nice. The quote was probably picked out by a graphic designer for it's nice sentiment.
