I Guess We Know Who Calls the Shots Around Here

The Court of Appeal’s Schiavo ruling shows a complete and utter contempt towards Congress. Just in case you’re wondering folks, Congress passes the laws, and the courts interpret them. Yes, they can declare them unconstitutional, but that’s not what appeared to have happened here. They simply disregarded the law.

I agree with Ed at Captain’s Quarters that this raises some very serious questions about the power of the judiciary. What I find particularily alarming is not only the fact that the court disregarded the law, but also the manner in which they did it, as if to remind the other two branches who really calls the shots around here.
