    Posted: March 29, 2005 11:44 a.m. Eastern © 2005 The Florida state constitution declares unequivocally that in the state of Florida "the supreme executive power shall be vested in a governor … ." The word supreme means highest in authority. There can be no executive authority in the state of Florida higher than the governor. No state law can create an executive authority higher than highest in the Florida constitution. Therefore no court order based upon such a law can constitutionally create such an authority. If the governor tells the local police in Pinellas County to step aside, they...

    Since I'm only allowed to post a link, here it is. This is a really good article on one of Jeb's reamining options to help Terri, which he refuses to take. The article urges him to launch an immedite criminal investigation into the whole case, then take her into custody as part of the investigation, then grant her clemency, thus putting her out of reach.

    State officials say they are considering removing Terri Schiavo from hospice, by force if necessary, despite numerous court orders upholding the removal of the artificial nutrition tube that has kept her alive for 15 years.Lucy Hadl, secretary of the Department of Children and Families, said Wednesday morning that her staff is relying on a state law that gives the department the authority to intervene on behalf of a vulnerable adult who is 'suffering from abuse or neglect that presents a risk of death or serious physical injury.'

    There is one other option I have not seen discussed here. And I think it would qualify as nuclear. If Cheney would order a very direct action to resolve the matter of those who are trying to Kill Terri and have men to carry that order out GW can in turn Pardon Cheney and all involved. Unless the House would be willing to vote for Impeachment there would be nothing that could be done to stop it.

    The primary reason of government is to protect it's citizens. The argument of states rights and "it's a private matter," regarding Ms. Shindler-Schiavo, must be trumped by common sense. I, like the next man, want government out of my life. But the case of Terri Shindler's life vs. Michael Schiavo's feelings has to be addressed by our leaders- for it's outcome will set precedent. Why is everyone so comfortable with this man's (Schiavo) opinion- regarding Terri's life? As far as I am concerned- a blood relatives decision ( i.e., Father, Mother, Sister) should override a spouse's, who in many cases...

    Words are so easy to use. Words mean things. Words are also easily used, especially when the right words elude. In Florida, Terri Schiavo is now waiting to die. Does she know it? You can be assured she does. Can she speak about it? No. Does that mean she is in a 'vegetative state'? NO! But what is a 'vegetative state'?

    CRAWFORD, Texas Mar 19, 2005 — President Bush is changing his schedule to return to the White House on Sunday to be in place to sign emergency legislation that would shift the case of a brain-damaged Florida woman to federal courts, the White House said Saturday. "Everyone recognizes that time is important here," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said. "This is about defending life." After Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed on Friday, members of Congress worked out a deal to pass legislation to allow federal courts to decide the 41- year-old woman's fate and in the hopes of...

Leaders of both parties agreed Saturday on legislation that they said would allow Schiavo's feeding tube, which was disconnected Friday afternoon, to be reinserted while federal courts review her case.

    I never believed that I would live in a country that would, in effect, execute a brain-damaged woman who never hurt anyone in her life.

While our soldiers valiantly fight and die across the sea so complete strangers can enjoy human rights, here at home an American woman who suffered severe brain damage 15 years ago is being subjected to death by dehydration and starvation by order of a judge. Today, her feeding tube was removed. The humanity of every society is determined first and foremost by how it treats...

Today, after a remarkable recovery, she can talk again. Scantlin's father knows she will never fully recover, but her newfound ability to speak and her returning memories have given him his daughter back. For years, she could only blink her eyes — one blink for "no," two blinks for "yes" — to respond to...

    As you may already know, Gov Jeb Bush has not yet taken steps to protect the life of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. This is in spite of memorandums of law from several notable legal scholars ensuring him that he has the legal authority and obligation to do so. People in the Tallahassee area of Florida are encouraged to hold vigil at the capitol offices as well as the Governor's mansion.
