Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

04/04/2005: Dobson's Foaming at the Mouth ...Again!

Self appointed Defender of his Faithful from SpongeBob is that quack: Focus on the Family Action Chairman Dr. James C. Dobson. Dobson is now pontificating about the law without benefit of either a law licence or a brain either...in this release at US News Wire.

What's his rant and rave: The Judiciary:

"It is a very dangerous doctrine to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions,"

Dobson then tries to cite as back up for this premise, this Thomas Jefferson Quote: "It is one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy".

"Dobson documents in detail what he calls the "heady abuse of power that is all too common among independent fiefdoms known as judges," noting that Thomas Jefferson spoke prophetically when he repeatedly warned that an out-of-control judiciary would threaten not only the soundness of the Constitution but the stability of the country itself."

Perhaps Mr. Dobson would like to "explain" how it is that the Judiciary performing its "Constitutional function" to determine the Rule of Law and Questions of Law (Constitutional or otherwise) as one of the Three Pillars of our very Constitutional Tri-part Government is an Oligargy - in opposition, Let's say, to his oligarchical pronouncements wherein He and a few of his selectmen are now proposing to determine these issues for the Country and nation absent anybody else's input and outside the Laws of the State of Florida.

The people who are "Out of Control" are Wacko's like Dr. James C. Dobson, who can't bear it that he's WRONG on the Constitution and the Law, wrong on Society and wrong on the American People.
