Even in a bog...

... We have our favorites.

S0 this is about favorites. Kermit's favorite president was 'Old Hickory', Andrew Jackson. Kermit's favorite political observer is Ann Coulter. Last week the favorite observer mentioned the favorite president in her column...


Starved for Justice

It would be chaotic if public officials made a habit of disregarding court rulings simply because they disagreed with them. But a practice borne of practicality has led the courts to greater and greater flights of arrogance. Sublimely confident that no one will ever call their bluff, courts are now regularly discovering secret legal provisions requiring abortion and gay marriage and prohibiting public prayer and Ten Commandments displays.

Just once, we need an elected official to stand up to a clearly incorrect ruling by a court. Any incorrect ruling will do, but my vote is for a state court that has ordered a disabled woman to be starved to death at the request of her adulterous husband…
...


…President Andrew Jackson is supposed to have said of a Supreme Court ruling he opposed: "Well, John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it." The court's ruling was ignored. And yet, somehow, the republic survived.

If Gov. Jeb Bush doesn't say something similar to the Florida courts that have ordered Terri Schiavo to die, he'll be the second Republican governor disgraced by the illiterate ramblings of a state judiciary. Gov. Mitt Romney will never recover from his acquiescence to the Massachusetts Supreme Court's miraculous discovery of a right to gay marriage. Neither will Gov. Bush if he doesn't stop the torture and murder of Terri Schiavo.

It would be in poor taste for Kermit to take a public stand on anything. That would brand him as 'non-politically-correct' and further might cause a cognitive dissonance (vague uneasiness) to an unknown person who stumbled into the bog. On top of which it could be construed as totally unAmerican if the visitor were a Democrat. And heaven forbid (whoops- religion crept in) the great blue void overhead forbid, that the visitor might be of foreign persuasion, let alone French.

Actually, Kermit is ill-at-ease with the French. Sometimes it could be so strong as to be described as a cognitive dissonance. I mean, well... people like that give frogs a bad name.

Perhaps Ann Coulter might consider running for office? At least SHE seems to have gonads! A new and terrible level of judicial homocide is being born ... shame on U.S. There is no justice - Just Us - Just Ice

I agree that in this country there is no justice! At least not true justice! Cold and business like seems to be in style these days and I would really love to see something done about it!

I believe it is totally wront to deprive a human being that cannot say for herself if she wants to live or die. I toally believe thay she needs to be protected under the LAWS of the United States as a person not able to help herself. The Feeding Tube needs to stay IN!
Prayers need to said for the COURTS of this Nation. + 60 years ago this nation was TRULY a Christian nations. A Court Ruling in 1947 Started the Breakdown of our Christian Nation!!!!

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT ANY OF IT. I PERSONALLY DO NOT WANT TO BE KEPT ALIVE IN THAT CONDITION. I THINK THE MEDIA IS HYPING THIS UP. THE LADY IS NOT GETTING BETTER. THE INSURANCE HAS PROBABLY RUN OUT. IF HER PARENTS ARE SO GREAT WHY DON'T THEY TAKE CARE OF HER ALL DAY, WITH NO IMPORVEMENT. LET HER GO WHERE SHE CAN BE AT PEACE, NOT A VEG. I WOULDN'T WANT MY FAMILY TO HAVE TO CARE FOR ME IN THAT CONDITION. THE DOCTORS THAT ARE CARING FOR HER HAVE NOT GIVEN A DIAGNOSIS OR PROGNOSIS TO THE PUBLIC. WE CAN'T GO BY MEDIA HYPE.

SORRY KERMIT, YOU KNOW THE MAN UPSTAIRS BETTER THAN I DO, BUT WE HAVE TO DO THINGS WE DON'T LIKE TO DO FOR OUR FAMILIES AND SOMETIMES FRIENDS, THAT WE DON'T WANT TO. WE WANT TO KEEP THEM WITH US EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY BE SUFFERING. WE WOULDN'T DO THAT TO A DOG.

It seems to me that the person who retains the legal guardianship is the one who should be allowed to make the decision. Now whether we (the unwashed masses) agree with that decision or not shouldn't come into play.
The State and now the Federal Governments have become involved with no change in the outcome (except a lot of face time on the tube being "morally outraged" about either side of the issue). Bad cases tend to make for bad laws.
If you don't like what's happening, take the lesson to heart and DON'T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!
On the plus side though, we haven't had to listen to to much on the Michael Jackson case lately.
