Who was I to actually think that I could compel Kelly Ayotte or the GOP to actually appear for a TRO hearing BEFORE the election? The chances of that happening or a mere mortal like me are about as likely as two
The video at bottom was for the TRO that the Federal Court today sidestepped, today (29 Oct) ordering Defendants to respond on or before 1 Nov. 2010 -- but the Defendants have been aware of this litigation for more than a week now and there was ALREADY a scheduled hearing on the 27th in the State Court before the Defendants removed it to Federal Court at the last possible minute, stalling for more time.
The Federal Court had read my Motion to Reconsider the State Court hearing schedule, which had initially set a hearing for 17 November, 2010 -- two solid weeks AFTER the election. Fascinating. It could be argued, with substantial force, that a Free Press is not exactly of paramount importance in the Live Free or Die State.
You can't really fight the government or powerful Republicans like sockpuppet Kelly, with ties to corporate behemoths like Pfizer, Abbott labs (not the SAAB guys, the drug-pusher guys), Visa, Sunoco, Cayman Finance, Wal Mart, etc. etc..... all you can really do is document their actions and keep track of them the same way they keep track of us. And if you're a journalist seeking information, take a number and get in line to wait your chance for a glimpse of Justice.
