Several links that might have seemed more timely yesterday:

Judicial Murder, by Nat Hentoff of The Village Voice

Schiavo Solves Social Security

This post has more pertintent links than I've seen in a single blog post in my life.

Kathy Shaidle covers quite a bit of ground here.

This Czech gets it.

Jesse Jackson Jumps Into Florida Right-To-Die-Case Jane, you ignorant slut. The controversy in this case is almost entirely about whether it is a right-to-die case or not. This headline might as well be "Interfering Christian Is Wrong".

"Pressured by the Christian right and socially conservative activists", including Jackson, Ralph Nader, disabled activists and all of the Democrats who voted for the bill, "the Republican-led U.S. Congress passed a special law last week".

"Michael Schiavo's lawyer said on Monday he had ordered an autopsy be carried out after his wife dies to show the public the extent of her brain damage and to silence claims that his plans to cremate her are aimed at hiding something." So the entire point of the autopsy is to prove that she's severely brain damaged, as everyone concedes, but NOT to check for evidence elsewhere in her body of the type of injuries they've been accused of trying to hide.

The article strikes me as being quite biased, but mainly through omission.

Uh, oh, looks like Thomas Sowel isn't a True Conservative either, in the eyes of index card "conservatives" who define conservatism in terms of a few simplistic nostrums they can memorize (and that they probably picked up from liberal aquaintences) like "Whatever it is that Congress just did, ahm agin' it", or the Macaniac "Trying to influence how laws are made and enforced corrupts the process and will overturn the RULE OF LAW, AAGHHH!!!" Anyway, I don't usually do this, but... I command you to read the whole thing, lest my mighty hand smite thee.

Damn, I've been commenting in this fever swamp instead of fisking this shite. Someone should, anyway. I feel like I'm letting down Spoons.

This is not hyperbole: The Republic Dies With Terri Schiavo.

Pay some attention to who it is who's saying that our system of checks and balances suddenly means that the it is unconstitutional for the legislature to LEGISLATE, and that the courts, unacountable to the voters, must also be unacountable to the other two branches? Are these people who you trust? These are the same lawyers who have no regard for any of your Constitutionally enumerated rights, the same socialists who assert rights to take your property and force you to do things you don't want to do, and the same ignorant majority that every poll shows is going to vote for Ross Perot or consume some product which they go ahead and make and then no one actually consumes it.

Link via The Queen Of The Pixies, who's softness for Popery I do not share. Just thought I'd mention that in case any of you think that "Due Process For Terri Schiavo" is code for "Ban Condoms".

If you're reading this, blogger has deigned to allow me to post here again, and I should probably be on Dawn Eden's blogroll pretty soon.

A vow made sincerely, but mainly to get linked: If the FEC makes rules that limit my First Amendment right to express my opinion on core political issues, I will not obey those rules (Unless some of the rules are things I'd do anyway, like "Be skinny and pale")Via Baldilocks, who's friend Acidman reminds us that the people with an opinion about Terri Schiavo vastly outnumber the people who are paying any attention at all to the details of the specific case at hand.
