    I understand, but . . . (none / 0) (#3)

    There is a time-honored saying in the legal profession -- "Hard cases make bad law."  In essence, it's our version of the slippery slope.  When a statute imposes requirements and uses the word "shall," those requirements are mandatory and cannot be ignored.  To do otherwise jeopardizes all of the other requirements, which would eventually cause the law to unravel.

    makes it less ridiculous IMO

    Part of the problem we face in this country is a distorted view of the constitution.


    Interpretation and alterations by activist judges.

    Rather than judge to determine if the rules have been broke, there is too often an attempt to question whether the rules are appropriate.

    Its the people's right to determine if the rules are appropriate through rule making by their representatives, and the Judge is merely a referee.

    How long would an umpire last in his job if he ignored a "balk" repeatedly?

    A line judge wouldn't make it in football if "just a toe over" didn't stop a play at that location.

    A Judge is obligated to follow the rule of law.  Or that judge MUST go.


    Seth - "Tea Party" (none / 0) (#5)

    This isn't the action of the Tea Party. It's a FTP/fake tea party. That's where it starts. Now they wrangle over the details. I'm very much with Gillman here, you shouldn't be picking and choosing after the fact which existing law will be pertinent. One can lobby to change law but must obey the law as it is until there might be a change. Due the political wrangling this 'unimportant law' is facing the court.
