Supreme Court Upholds Oregon Suicide Law

Supreme Court Upholds Oregon Suicide Law: "Kennedy said the "authority claimed by the attorney general is both beyond his expertise and incongruous with the statutory purposes and design""

In a slap at the Federal Government's attempt to grab even more power from the states and from every aspect of our lives the Supreme Court stepped up and in a 6 to 3 vote slammed down the efforts to punish doctors who help terminally ill patients. Amazing in a sea of discouraging abuse of federal power here is finally one decision for the little guy. Right now though the federal government still has the power to knock on your door in the middle of the night and haul you away without a warrant, without telling anyone why or without charging you with any crime. And while you are away in prison your local government can take your property away. No word yet from the Constitution or the Bill of Rights which has been unavailable for comment for some time now.
