    that does not make it "lawful."

    They can declare all they want. But if they rule contrary to established law, their ruling is unlawful.

    You might want to read up on your constitution.

    Again, you seem to year for "king judges." We don't have those here.

      how ignorant your posts are.

      Hint:

      The courts declarations define what the law actually is.  The law is what they say it is.  

      You may claim they got the law wrong or that their decision contradicted the law, but that is your opinion, which is of absolutely zero legal relevance and means absolutely nothing in terms of defining what the law is.

      Legislatures pass laws, and then courts interpret them.

      Between the two of them, they define what the law is.

        and gets away with it.

        You are smart enough to know that you have grossly oversimplified how the law works in reality.

        Back to Roger's point: Cheney & Bush showed that we are a nation of men, not laws.

        That's why Roger should think hard before tilting at any more windmills.

        look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening. "Forgive them; for they know not what they do."

          Are you saying we should just cower before the Bushes, and Cheneys and Ted Rollines of the world?

          Glad it was Martin Luther King, and not you, who stepped forward on civil rights. We would still have segregated  lunch counters in Birmingham, where I live.

        •  Dick Cheney did not have that legal authority. (0+ / 0-)

          State courts do have that legal authority.

          The Rule of Recognition validates the courts, not Cheney.
