That's a little harsh. There was nothing unconstitutional in the decision, and it kicks Obamacare back into the political arena where it belongs.The final referendum on Obamacare will be this November.
I could not have said it any better myself..I can't believe John Roberts sided with the liberal judges.But I think that the Court just handed Romney a clear way to beat Obama.Keep on spiking that football, Bozo. People will remember this on election day..The true victory for people all across the country will come on November 6 when the election will serve as a referendum against this monstrosity called Obamascare.
I may be naive, but I have always believed most intelligent people know when you're speaking tongue-in-cheek, or when you're being sarcastic, or waxing satirical.Apparently not! I was not at all surprised by todays "verdict" -- disappointed of course, but not surprised. Yesterday's publication of "Presentiment" should tell everyone that.It' a bit too early to offer a sober, reasoned piece on the court's decision. They had a great opportunity to end the nation's agony, and chose instead to prolong it -- or possibly to make it everlasting.This too may NOT pass. I'm afraid we're going to be stuck with it till Kingdom Come. However, there's no point on staging an orgy of weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth.Hand-wringing and loud lamentations never produced anything of value, and may actually be destructive of any chance we as individuals might have to achieve inner peace.Instead, it's time to take stock, weigh what options we might have, and act appropriately.~ FreeThinke
In my view, the only what we will not be stuck with it till Kingdom Come will occur only if the GOP wins massively in November.And, let's be real, even THEN, I've heard yapping about overturning Roe v. Wade for DECADES. Well, it's still in force, isn't it?The same goes for the income-tax amendment.WE THE PEOPLE are SCREWED -- certainly if Obama wins in 2012 and possibly even if he loses.I fail to understand why what the SCOTUS did is constitutional. Did not the SCOTUS rewrite the ObamaCare statute?
"But I think that the Court just handed Romney a clear way to beat Obama."Hey, Darth Bacon! I wish I could share your optimism. I sure hope you're right.As my favorite doctor once said to a very brave cancer patient who'd been given only six months to live:Don't stop fighting until after they put the second shovelful of dirt in your coffin.Well, six years later, that same guy is still fighting cancer. He loves life more than he fears the pain and suffering he gets from chemotherapy. A great role model!It's like that story about John Paul Jones, who reportedly said, "I have not yet begun to fight," after his ship started sinking while it was ablaze after heavy bombardment. We need to keep fighting, but we need just as much -- or more -- to know where to direct the blows.One thing's for sure: We shouldn't be fighting each other over petty trifles.Thanks for visiting. Please come often.~ FreeThinke
Another bloggers has said THIS today:OBAMA: TAXING EVERYTHING YOU DOAND EVERYTHING YOU DON'T DO
AOW,I'm afraid the nation's been conditioned through long abuse and subversion of the law in the name of "Civil Rights"and "Social Justice" to accept the perverse notion that tells us, "The Constitution is what SCOTUS says it is at any given time -- nothing more and nothing less."It may already have become a cliché to say we are ruled by a Judicial Oligarchy, but it's perfectly true.We are a Constitutional Representative Republic IN NAME ONLY -- and have been for more than half a century.How does it feel to be a citizen in a CRINO nation?LOUSY!~ FT
I wonder if this will this motivate most people who may finally, finally, be fed up enough to elect only Republicans, and vote for Romney who says that he will repeal this disaster? Even if they think Romney is not really a Reagan-type Republican, whatever he is has to be better than having a communist sympathizer in our white house. If not, and these numb-nuts who put him in office before and do it again, we ARE screwed, because it’s up to ue freedom lovers to elect people who WILL undo this disastrous mess. .And I can’t wait to hear the spin about the issue of this ‘mandate’ being ok as a tax, even though there are plenty of tapes of obuma and others saying it is not a tax, which, of course, it is since Roberts just said it is,.but of course, obuma can spin or unspin anything he says, since he is incapable of speaking the truth about anything, except when he says he wants to ‘change America’ . . . .Actually it was it all over when Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats forced this thing down the mouths of the States telling them that they have to vote for it so that they can read it. And when she marched to the Capitol with large gavel in hand?Not when the nation rose up and threw the Democrats out of power in the House in 2010.Is it over now that the Supreme Court has upheld the mandate on the basis of a taxing power which Democrats expressly disavowed while passing Obamacare?Not unless we allow Barack Obama to be reelected and the Democrats to hold the Senate.This was a wonderful and free country before the the tyrant was elected! May they all burn in hell
Justice Roberts has made his decision. Let him enforce it.
"Let him enforce it."Yes sir, President Jackson, I'll tell the Chief Justice right away, sir.I know he's bound to be mighty impressed.He'll soon be quaking in his boots, sir. I can practically guarantee. ~ FT
Certainly Kipling's RECESSIONAL belongs in this august poetic company too –– maybe even more than the others.I may post it later. Right now the need for breakfast is calling loudly. ;-)~ FT
I'm glad you recognized that reference. THAT particular Supreme Court decision (recognizing and upholding the sovereignty / property rights of the Cherokee Nation) was ignored by the very first President the Constitution-hating anti-Federalists (Democratic Party) ever elected.You might say my faith in that branch of government and 50 cents will get you coffee if the coffee is on sale.
Jackson as the first president we elected born of COMMON (peasant) stock.I hate to be the one to say it, but it's true enough:"BREEDING shows."Jefferson was pretty much anti-Federalist too, but he was no peasant.~ FT
