Obama's Guru
Wants Animals To Sue You

Making an Ass of the Law

Andrew Orlowski - January 19th, 2009 - The Register

Obama's "regulation czar" Professor Cass Sunstein wants animals to be able to sue.


The proposal can be seen as part of a trend to fight political battles through the courts by playing clever tricks with the statutes or legal processes. A parallel move is the decision to give life-giving CO2 status as a "pollutant". Where do these perverse ideas come from?

Ever since the New Deal, when Roosevelt attempted to pack the Supreme Court to ram home legislation, it's been the preferred route for US activists seeking a short cut. But at bottom, it's fundamentally undemocratic and contemptuous of politics.

Can anyone imagine a Republican President choosing as one of his senior advisers a wacko who believes the way to move our nation forward is allowing animals the right to sue people in court?

At a time when Russia is convinced that we are moving into a new ice age due to a major study they conducted, and a huge well respected organization gets over 31,000 scientists to sign a petition disputing the theory of man caused global warming, the Magic Marxist Messiah is still following Al Gore and his disciples in the belief that it is "proven science" and they must "save the planet" by destroying free markets and replacing them with government guidance.

More wacko green fanatics have been appointed by Obama than have ever had positions of power in our nation before. And one of them thinks that turning over control of our court system to these loons is a good move. As if the contempt for the "rule of law" has not caused damage enough, turning our economy over to the "rule of judges" is certain disaster.
