Daily Roundup 2008-12-28

Daily Roundup sounds better than Microblog, if you ask me.

Tomorrow, I predict that somewhere, someone will be sued.


  • I think I know why attorneys are so fierce in their interpetation of the seperation of church and state. The Bible seems to call “a spade a spade”.

    Luke 11:46 King James

    “And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.”

    Luke 11:52 King James

    “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”

  • That’s good to know, Throckmorton, and you could probably throw in a reference to Henry VI as well.

    But what does it have to do with anything I wrote here?

  • I think you last sentance stated it.

    “Tomorrow, I predict that somewhere, someone will be sued.”

    This triggered in me the frustration that I have with our present “tort system”. I personally try to find guidance in the Bible and these are the verses that the concordance pulled up.

    In regards to Henry VI, I assume you mean the play and not the actual Henry VI who died in the Tower of London. I think the real Henry VI can shed some light though. During his reign there was an extreme breakdown of law and order in government by several power hungry factions and as a result corruption flourished. Henry tried to find solace and guidance in his faith and ended up locked in the Tower of London by these power hungry factions where he eventually went insane and was murdered.
