Politics: Fiddling while Rome Burns
I can not fucking believe that while our economy lies in near-ruins, our debt is skyrocketing out of control, and our soldiers are overseas at war, the most important elected officials in the United States are wasting their time destroying 200 years of jurisprudence to overrule the husband of someone who's been in a persistant vegetative state for 15 years.
Sure, the helpless have rights, and the courts and laws need to uphold them. But you can't convince me that this hasn't escalated beyond the rational. In fact, the courts have already had their say. But, here we have it, instead of going all-out to save the livelyhoods of millions of American citizens, or going all-out to save the thousands of soldiers who will die in the desert, or going all-out to do something good for the billions of people in the world who are affected by the United State's governance, we're going to go all-out to save the life of somone who hasn't really even been a person for more than a decade.
I don't know what the actual motivation is behind this stupid political grandstanding, but I'm disgusted.
