I just had an email from Deep Birther, asking why the courts in Hawaii don’t just hold the hearing requested by Orly Taitz in Taitz v Astrue rather than stringing the process out until September 14, comparing the delay to Chinese water torture.
I think this is a case of “blame the victim.” It’s Taitz, not the Courts, who victimize the public with their frivolous lawsuits and who drag out the resolution of what has already been resolved. The whole business reminds me yet again of a fiction narrative that I mentioned in a comment here way back in 2009:
In book 2 of C. S. Lewis’s science fiction trilogy, Perelandra, the protagonist named Ransom is confronted with another man who we understand is really the Devil. The Devil follows Ransom around saying “Ransom?” Ransom would reply “what?” and the Devil would reply, “nothing”. If Ransom didn’t say anything the Devil kept saying “Ransom?” until Ransom gave in and replied “what?, after which the Devil said, “nothing.” It drove Ransom nuts until he reached a moment of clarity, realizing that he would rather hear “Ransom?” for the rest of his life than “nothing”. He stopped answering.
Ransom resolves his larger issues by smashing the Devil’s head in with a rock, a violent response to evil. I don’t advocate anyone smashing anyone’s head with a rock, but ignoring the birthers isn’t a bad idea.
