The local newspaper here in Beverly Hills expressed it best in a headline:
“Terry Schiavo Sentenced To Death.”
Because she had a “husband” who did not want her alive to talk about him or for whatever reason, she was sentenced to die in a cruel and unusual way that the Supreme Court would never have countenanced for the most savage mass killer — slow starvation and dehydration. Why isn’t she excused from the death penalty for that reason alone?
Because the courts read the public opinion polls and the polls show that most people don’t care for her to stay alive, she is sentenced to die. So now we have “Family Feud” justice where the only right answer is the one that most respondents give, and a totally innocent woman has to die because a poll says so.
I wonder if a poll of Aryan Germans would have found a majority who cared enough to pull a lever to save the Jews. I suspect a good majority — voting in total secrecy, of course — would have said, “Let them die. They’re inferior and not worth providing food for.” So now we are at that level.
But when Terri Schiavo is with her Maker let’s be clear what happened: she was executed by the culture of death judiciary, the same ones who say no baby has a right to live until he’s out of the womb by a few days — and you can bet that’s going to change so that babies who are less than perfect will soon be sentenced to death, too. She was executed, despite having committed no crime whatsoever, by thugs in black robes who would not know a law if it were on their breakfast plate.
This is what we have come to. The unelected judiciary has simply taken over, like a gangster governmental branch, from the rest of the government, and it is a judiciary of death. And this is with a Republican, right to life president. When a Democrat wins again, as will surely happen, God help us.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
