Sometimes I would desire that conservatives would have the audacity of Democrats. You know that if there was a woman in Florida being denied access to an abortion via a court order that Democrats would send in shock troops faster than Elian Gonzalez was surrounded by troops and whisked back to Cuba. That if there was any legal pretext for them to act they would. In the beginning days of Terri’s forced starvation I figured at any moment I would see a headline where Governor Jeb Bush had forcefully acted. I am no Lawyer, but there appeared to be many possible avenues where the Governor could act in this situation. It has been reported that Governor Bush has received roughly ten e-mails a second begging him to act. I have no doubt that Governor Bush does desire to intervene in this situation, but it appears that he will not take a bold step to do so.
[Gov. Bush’s actions] undermine and threaten the public’s confidence in the independence and objectivity of the judiciary, the rule of law, and the State of Florida’s ability to impartially administer justice through its state court system. –Clearwater Bar Association, resolution rebuking Gov. Bush for sending a letter to Judge Greer
That is a pretty funny line here in Florida “independence and objectivity of the judiciary.” Does it truly take objectivity to grant guardianship to someone living with another woman with whom he already has one child and is expecting another? Does it truly take objectivity to ignore video taped evidence of Terri’s true condition and to ignore the conflict of interest and award guardianship to someone who might have been the cause of Terri’s injuries and has already ordered that she be cremated as soon as she dies?
Soon we will see special Florida Vacation and Euthanasia packages. Come down to sunny Florida home of the Superbowl Champion Buccaneers and World Series contender Marlins. Bring your incapacitated spouse with you and no matter what the circumstances our courts will give you guardianship and help you to pull the proverbial plug. Sound too good to be true? Well are judicial system is really that blind and will gleefully ignore any evidence and will wash there hands while blaming you for their decisions. There are many “Choose Life” license plates and a pro-life governor, but don’t let that distract you – it really doesn’t matter.
