The law. What is the law?

If you believe them, the Governor of the Great State of Florida, the President of the United States, the Senate Majority Leader and the Speaker of the House are all powerless in the face of some mindless appointed judge in Florida. They can do nothing to keep a clearly innocent lady from being publicly slowly tortured and murdered in a cruel and certainly unusual manner.

The President, his lovely wife, the Governor, various members of the legislature all decry the pending death of Terri Schiavo. But, they can do nothing. After all, the law must be minded.

The law. What is the law?

Is the law whatever a judge says it is?
• Ask Dred Scott.
• Ask the victims of separate, but equal.
• Ask those denied the right to vote.
• Ask the man in New Mexico sentenced to hard time for ill feeding his dogs.

If a judge says a dog’s tail is a leg, how many legs does a dog have?

Four, calling a leg a tail does not make it a tail, even if it is called a tail by a judge.

Terri Schiavo has been sentenced to death by starvation and dehydration. If you ask a judge, that is bliss, natural. It is not torture like putting underwear on a prisoner’s head. Ask a judge.

The President of the United States can act. Judges can be overridden by the Executive. There are credible allegations of judicial irregularities, medical malfeasance, intentional medical diagnosis misrepresentation, of attempted murder, of spousal abuse by the husband. Terri Schiavo should be protected by our government until the truth can be determined.

Make no mistake, there are parallel battles going on here:

• Terri Schiavo’s fight for life
• The deatheaters right to murder
• The judicial branch’s fight to remain omnipotent in violation of the Constitution

The judge, acting in addition as jury and executioner, is the enemy of our country.

The President swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. To protect our rights to LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Time for him to do it.

If he allows Terri Schiavo’s murder, a part of his soul dies, too. He has the power. Is he the man?

Great observations.

Most of the judges populating the bench are amoral god wannabes who have no interesting in rendering justice, just exercising power.
