Care to know who has joined the “illustrious” group of lawyers filing lawsuits against the new health care bill signed into law by President Obama? You guessed it, Claimed Lawyer – Apparent Dentist – Birther Queen – and All-Around Weirdo Orly Taitz. In a barely-reasoned, badly-drafted Complaint – in which she mis-spells the title of her own court document – Taitz alleges that the new health care law is a:
“VIOLATION OF COMMERCE CLAUSE AND OF PLAINTIFF’S RIGHTS TO GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT AS A DOCTOR OF DENTAL SURGERY UPON DEFENDANT’S IMMINENT SIGHNING OF THE HEALTH BILL” (Error in original.)
But, wait…it gets better. Dr. Orly waxes on, eloquently pleading:
“Health bill, as being prepared and reconciled, will create an enormous machine of governmental burocracy which will intrude into Plaintiff’s practice, will affect her doctor-patient relations, will undermine her Hippocratic oath, will force her to ration medical care and de-facto deny medical care to elderly, whom some committees of burocrats will deem to be too old to receive such care, meaning too old to live.” (Multiple and inexcusable errors in original.)
Orly Taitz concerned me enough when I only knew her to be a sham lawyer, completely incapable of sound legal reasoning, and apparently absent from law school the day they discussed the “actual cases and controversies” clause from the Constitution. But she’s also a dentist!?! I mean, I knew she put Dr. in front of her name, but I certainly did not think she seriously meant that she provided, gulp, medical care to actual people. With sharp instruments and everything!?!
Apparently, Orly did not get a big enough cup of hot, steaming whoop-ass from her last foray into a courtroom. As some of you may recall, Orly was sanctioned and severely criticized by a Federal judge last year for filing a frivolous lawsuit against President Obama. In a 30-page opinion, the Judge criticized Orly for, among other things:
- Using “rhetoric” that is designed to inflame the “emotions” of her followers instead of real legal arguments; (Orly: “What are legal arguments?”)
- Failing to properly file and serve the defendants in the case so as to give them notice of the case; (Orly: “That rule didn’t apply to me, did it?”)
- An attempt by Taitz to dump two of her clients because she did not like working with their counsel; (Orly: “I never said I was a people person.”)
- Asking supporters to contact the court in an attempt to influence the decision; and (Orly: “Is that wrong?”)
- Possibly asking some witnesses to perjure themselves before the court. (Orly: “They were just little, white lies.”)
And, yet, no article about Orly Taitz would be complete without at least one photo of the Dr. herself – now, ask yourself, would you want her standing up for you in court? Or, coming at you with a dentist’s drill and a pair of pliers? If you answer yes to either of these questions, you need more than a dentist.
