Judging judges

(by R.P.Edwards)

When judges stop their judging
And choose to wear the crown
The rightful heir must rise up
And cast the judges…down

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
(Jude 1:6)

Just a quick note before I slog off (nearly skate [getting nippy]) to work.  I found a degree of satisfaction that, in the recent elections, three of the Iowa Judges that used their position to endorse gay-marriage; these three were told to hang up their robes…and go home.

I must admit, I like this “vote to retain” policy.  Even on my Illinois ballot there were two who were up for renewal (I said “yea” to one; “nay” to the other [both remain]).  And yes, I know there is supposed to be a “no-strings” quality to the judiciary so that they may remain impartial.  But…when the “trusted” go astray; when they follow the leanings and unctions of those who cannot win via the voting booth and choose, instead, to legislate from the bench; what are we, Joe public, to do?  Well, as in Iowa, we politely show them the door.  And, for others who are so high and secure that the citizens individual say holds no fear; for these that brazenly deem it their duty to “right the wrongs” of the ignorant; who shamelessly blaspheme against the near-sacred document they have sworn to uphold…for these, my fellow citizens, we need to become acquainted with the useful tool provided by the founders; it is known as…impeachment. 

Time for work.
