Judge bitch-slaps Bush on Navy's sonar waiver: ""The Navy's current 'emergency' is simply a creature of its own making"

watch out... the poor little dog by the side of the road with the owner's tag that reads "rule of law," a hit-and-run victim of bush's crazed, 7-year plus dui spree, still has some bite left...
The Bush administration overreached when it sought to limit the Navy's obligations under national environmental laws related to sonar training exercises off California, a federal judge ruled yesterday.

In a sharply worded decision that will keep the Navy from continuing a series of 14 planned exercises, U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper wrote that the Navy and the administration had improperly declared that an emergency would be created if they had to accept court-mandated steps to minimize risk to whales and other sea mammals. Because no real emergency exists, she said, the White House cannot override her decisions and those of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

[...]

Joel Reynolds, an official at the Natural Resources Defense Council, which obtained an earlier injunction against the Navy blocking the exercises, said in a statement that the court "has affirmed that we do not live under an imperial presidency."

my god... has my view of our country sunk so low that i am forced to CELEBRATE a SINGLE COURT DECISION that stops our CRIMINAL PRESIDENT from executing ONLY ONE ILLEGAL ACT...? she-e-e-e-e-eit... totalmente pat├ętico...

p.s. "we do not live under an imperial presidency" is a statement i WISH was true, but, sadly, is far from the case...
