For a variety of reasons, I’ve been a bit quite on the blog of late. I certainly don’t have less to say and things have not gotten better to where I feel I can stop…..I’m just biding my time…..and preparing.
Good law continues to be made in most of my cases and while that gives me some comfort, I continue to be concerned about all the bad, horrible, unconstitutional law that’s being made every day in courtrooms all across the state. This period will be a very dark time in our court’s history…a fact that I think many people are finally waking up to now.
I get the sense that some people finally get it now and that people understand just how dark and sinister the machinations of Governor Rick Scott and the powers in Tallahassee really are. The Bar, the bench and the entire legal community are absolutely retching now as they see legislative proposal after proposal that attack the very foundations of our legal system….and the attacks are just going to keep coming. Everyone just stood aside and shrugged their shoulders as long as the attacks were coming at people in foreclosure courts….they cheered when the absurd “Rocket Docket” was established…..but those were just the opening salvos in a very dangerous war…..and now they’re coming after the entire court system…..remember what I said…..
First They came… – Pastor Martin Niemoller
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Anyway, we’re too deep now for any of the easier fixes that could have worked when we all started sounding the warning alarms. But Watch tonight’s episode of 60 Minutes where they will be delving into some of the consequences….and problems….
