The View From Stilton's Place: | Old COP MB Message Board Posts
  • TECH UPDATE: Please accept our apologies for the delay in getting our "board visit & message view" counts to normalize. As you may have noticed, starting yesterday the "board stats" for individual message boards started to display clearly erroneous "member" and "guest" visit counts. Needless to say, we don't like having unreliable traffic stats on the site any more than you do. Please understand this was not by design or intention. It's a glitch that resulted from an apparent incompatibility with the legacy code and the recent deployment of new servers to tackle issues related to last month's outage. In order to give our web developer a chance to take a closer look at the glitch and come up with a viable solution, we have decided to leave the code up for now so she can have real-world data to work with (rather than just turn the counts off again). So it looks like we may have to live with these bad counts a little longer, but our expectation is to have this resolved by early next week, if not sooner. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

The View From Stilton's Place:


Wish Vigorously For At Least 20 Seconds

Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at the worst possible moment, because she might well have cast the tie-breaking vote when the Supreme Court decides whether our nation's highest legal standards rest on the Constitution or on a dying person's "most fervent wish."

Certainly, there's no debate amongst those on the Left: a "most fervent wish" or "final wish" wins every single time and takes precedence over all other legal considerations as long as the decedent wasn't a conservative who was, by definition, hellbound.

But if we accept this as precedent, surely more needs to be done to formalize and codify fervent last wishes. Sure, Ginsburg's granddaughter claims that the late Justice's most fervent wish was to not let Trump pick her replacement, but how do we know with certainty that RBG's real final, most fervent wish wasn't just to "break me off a piece of that KitKat bar?"

For that reason, it strikes us as important that all fervent final wishes be entered onto a pre-need 1040-FFW form, notarized, and recorded with the appropriate government office to expedite eventual enforcement. Indeed, filling out the 1040-FFW form should become a crucial component of every family's estate planning.

How else can we ensure that final fervent wishes are honored, such as Nancy Pelosi's wish to make Botox free for elected officials, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's wish that someone would finally clarify the difference between an ass and an elbow, Wilford Brimley's fervent final wish that we all eat a lot more oatmeal, Hillary Clinton's wish that a movie be made in which she is depicted as ruling Wakanda under the name "The Black Pantsuit," or Joe Biden's wish that Alaska and Hawaii will someday be made U.S. states?

Of course, some wishes - even those properly filed and notarized - will be difficult to execute, such as George Floyd's fervent final wish that he hadn't taken a lethal dose of fentanyl. Is such a wish even actionable? We won't know until a decision is issued by a fully-staffed Supreme Court... hopefully long before November.
