Bad Blogger

I am a bad blogger. It seems to me that a good blogger can come up with a topic even when the news appears to be slow. Maybe soon, I will find my voice again.

The Impact of Silence

There is something fundamentally wrong when the President of the United States condemns the murder of an abortion doctor (an ordinary citizen whose livelihood was the destruction of unborn children) and offers his condolences to doctor's family, but fails to condemn the murder of a soldier (a citizen that had dedicated himself to the protection of all Americans) murdered by an Muslim convert on American soil.

Obama's public comment regarding Mr. Tiller's Murder.

"I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence."

Death of Mr. Tiller

Everyone seems to be believe that Mr. Tiller was murdered because he was an abortion doctor. If true, it is a shame that any man can hold themselves above the law to deal justice as they see fit.

However, has anyone verified that this man was to avenge the death of unborn children? It appears to me that everyone has simply jumped to that conclusion because it makes a better story. This is a simple example of the Mass Media creating the news rather than reporting.

Court Determined Policy

And what about her remark a while back that “the court of appeals is where policy is made” (see clip here)? She makes an unconvincing little disclaimer after she says that by jokingly adding “I know this is on tape and I should never say that…I’m not promoting it and I’m not advocating it…”, but the rest of the tape makes it clear that she believes the law is something that “develops,” and that appeals court justices help that “development” along. - neo-neocon

It took a lecture on the Rule of Law for me to grasp the difference between a judge that develops the law an activist judge that changes the law. Our system is built on the basis of common law causing the Rule of Law to be soft and malleable. It shifts and changes and "develops" with each decision made by a court, whether it be a district or appellate court.

So is Judge Sotomayor wrong for believing that the law is something that develops? NO. That would be an outrageous claim if you think about it. It is an activist judge, that goes beyond developing the law to changing the law to fit their personal depiction of the way the law should be, ignoring the pretense of established law, the will of the people, that is the problem and endangers the Rule of Law.

While the Rule of Law changes with the progression of time, they must change as a reaction to the change of the people. It is improper to force a change in the Rule of Law in order to force a change in the people.

Interenet access is sparse at the moment, so no real post.

Has Obama officially named the self-proclaimed "Newyorkican" as Souter's replacement?
