The Schiavo Bill
2005-03-21 - 8:14 a.m.

Just read this on this morning:

President Bush early today signed legislation transferring jurisdiction of the Terri Schiavo case to a U.S. court. "In cases like this one, where there are serious questions and substantial doubts, our society, our laws, and our courts should have a presumption in favor of life," a statement from the president said.

Hmmm. "Serious questions and substantial doubts". Do you think he means kind of like invading Iraq? Where a sizeable percentage of the American public has serious questions and substantial doubts about why we went there in the first place, and why we are still over there? Why over 1,500 American servicemen have died in a country where the civilians that we were trying to protect, from a dictator that we didn't like, have decided that they don't want us there so much that they are systematically trying to blow up all of the Americans in their country?

Sorry, slight detour, but I think that the government is setting a dangerous precedent that it's okay for your government to insert their collective nose into your private business. And a recent CNN poll shows the same thing.

This stance is brought to you from an administration that, during the political debates for the 2004 election, told Americans that they didn't believe that the government should be allowed to tell you how to live your life.

Evidently that statement doesn't apply to Terri Schiavo.

"Serious questions and substantial doubts".

Yeah, I'm having a lot of those lately too.
