WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Terri's Fight: Justice Removed
Filed in: Bioethics, Current Affairs, Politics

What does it mean when a judge - the supposed administrator of justice - orders murder?

Despite appeals from the Vatican:

In statements on Vatican Radio, Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, said: "If Mr. Schiavo succeeds legally in causing the death of his wife, this not only would be tragic in itself, but would be a grave step toward the legal approval of euthanasia in the United States."

He added: "I would like to remind everyone in this connection, about all that the Holy Father has said in past days to the Pontifical Academy for Life, confirming that the quality of life is not interpreted as economic success, beauty and physical pleasure, but consists in the supreme dignity of the creature made in the image and likeness of God.

"No one can be the arbiter of life except God himself."

'Justice' George W. Greer has ordered the removal of nutrition and hydration from Terry Schiavo on March 18th.

A reading of Isaiah 59 is in order:

1 Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save,

    nor his ear too dull to hear.

    2 But your iniquities have separated

    you from your God;

    your sins have hidden his face from you,

    so that he will not hear.

    3 For your hands are stained with blood,

    your fingers with guilt.

    Your lips have spoken lies,

    and your tongue mutters wicked things.

    4 No one calls for justice;

    no one pleads his case with integrity.

    They rely on empty arguments and speak lies;

    they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.

    5 They hatch the eggs of vipers

    and spin a spider's web.

    Whoever eats their eggs will die,

    and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.

    6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing;

    they cannot cover themselves with what they make.

    Their deeds are evil deeds,

    and acts of violence are in their hands.

    7 Their feet rush into sin;

    they are swift to shed innocent blood.

    Their thoughts are evil thoughts;

    ruin and destruction mark their ways.

    8 The way of peace they do not know;

    there is no justice in their paths.

    They have turned them into crooked roads;

    no one who walks in them will know peace.

    9 So justice is far from us,

    and righteousness does not reach us.

    We look for light, but all is darkness;

    for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.

    10 Like the blind we grope along the wall,

    feeling our way like men without eyes.

    At midday we stumble as if it were twilight;

    among the strong, we are like the dead.

    11 We all growl like bears;

    we moan mournfully like doves.

    We look for justice, but find none;

    for deliverance, but it is far away.

    12 For our offenses are many in your sight,

    and our sins testify against us.

    Our offenses are ever with us,

    and we acknowledge our iniquities:

    13 rebellion and treachery against the LORD ,

    turning our backs on our God,

    fomenting oppression and revolt,

    uttering lies our hearts have conceived.

    14 So justice is driven back,

    and righteousness stands at a distance;

    truth has stumbled in the streets,

    honesty cannot enter.

    15 Truth is nowhere to be found,

    and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

    The LORD looked and was displeased

    that there was no justice.

    16 He saw that there was no one,

    he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;

    so his own arm worked salvation for him,

    and his own righteousness sustained him.

    17 He put on righteousness as his breastplate,

    and the helmet of salvation on his head;

    he put on the garments of vengeance

    and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.

    18 According to what they have done,

    so will he repay

    wrath to his enemies

    and retribution to his foes;

    he will repay the islands their due.

    19 From the west, men will fear the name of the LORD ,

    and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.

    For he will come like a pent-up flood

    that the breath of the LORD drives along.

    20 "The Redeemer will come to Zion,

    to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,"

    declares the LORD .

    21 "As for me, this is my covenant with them," says the LORD . "My Spirit, who is on you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouths of your children, or from the mouths of their descendants from this time on and forever," says the LORD .

If no power in this country intervenes we will have distanced justice in the same way that the prophet recorded long ago.
