Who lost it in the 1st place?[:D]
We have a constitution?
I debated a judge in Texas once. It was at a county fair, and he was running for re-election.
He picked me out of the crowd and ask me what I thought the supreme courts job was, and I told him it was to ensure that the laws pass by the congress and signed by the president were constitutional.
Then he told me that it was the supreme courts job to interpret the constitution, and I told him it was not the supreme courts job to determine if the constitution was constitutional, but to determine if the laws passed by our government were constitutional!
Then he used what I told him in an add, and won re-election! The bum was a democrat!
Judge Fleet is the "Dirty Harry" of the Judicial System
He's the same judge who did this:
[b]In 1992, Broward Circuit Judge J. Leonard Fleet responded to an attack from a defendant [u]in his courtroom[/u] by pulling out his .38-caliber revolver and muttering back, [red]'There's one bullet in the cylinder. Do you want to take your best shot? If you're going to take a shot, you better score, because I don't miss.'[/red]
The Florida State Supreme Court issued a tough-worded reprimand but at the next election Judge Fleet ran unopposed.[/b]
Our nation needs more Judge Fleets!!
The law, which Gov. Jeb Bush signed in March...violates the Florida Constitution and the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Jeb Bush for President!
