Insightful Interview

My friend, Chris (aka Layman), just sent me this hilarious transcript from Jon Stewart's Daily Show. Enjoy! ;)

JON STEWART: What has been the reaction in Washington?

ED HELMS: Liberals are outraged by Bush's choice. They have been for weeks.

JON STEWART: Ed, they just found out about Roberts last night.

ED HELMS: That's not the point. The Left wishes the president picked someone they wanted, not someone he wanted. I mean who gave him the authority? It's abuse of power.

JON STEWART: I think it's in the Constitution.

ED HELMS: What the Democrats are saying is they wish they had won the last election.

There right about that, they will have a problem with anyone closer to the right than ted kennedy. They belive that because, a judge does not agree with there opinions they are out of the mainstream. I am sure our good friend sean would agree with me on that. as a matter of fact i think he said that before.

Unfortunately, I think you're right about that, Eric. And, yes, I do believe our good friend Sean would concur :)

The problem with most of the Democrats and some of the Republicans as well, is they want a Judge on the Supreme Court that will legislate from the bench, in their favor.
That is not what the judge is there for. I have recently been involved in a discussion on another blog (a very Liberal one) about whether the 14th and 9th amendments guarantee a Right of Privacy and, as a part of that right, the right of a woman to choose whether she wants to have an abortion.
I read both amendments and I had to conclude that neither amendment addresses either right specifically, and indeed, it is a major stretch to read that into them.

This is why we need judges and also the reason we need legislators.

Legislators make the laws, the courts interpret the laws.

I must confess I believe we have a right to privacy also, but with some restrictions. Without restrictions you open the door to all manner of problems.

For instance, if the legislature and the courts were to decide that whatever goes on inside ones own private residence is no ones business but ones own, how would we be able to prosecute child molestors who commit the crime in his own home? There are endless possibilities, with their own set of inherent problems.

As far as abortion is concerned, I maintain nobody has the right, or ever should, to take the life of a baby regardless of term. Ever.

But I am just your humble friend and uneducated blogger. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

You are exactly right, my humble and friend and quite educated blogger!

This is about interpreting the law, unlike what the beloved Sen Schumer said the other day as he lamented the nomination. He inadvertantly slipped up by saying that this appointment is different because the Supreme Court "makes" law!

May God help us to simply read the constitution, all of us!
