So many people do not seem to understand that this is a good thing ! The SCOTUS is not supposed to legislate !

He showed Judicial Restraint

To correct this problem Congress must be put on the hot seat and not be allowed to pass the buck !

You want Obama and Obamacare gone then make it happen this November in the voting booth

Want to really make sure it happens

Write to your congress-critter every week and open that bill fold and send money to a conservative candidate running for Congress or the senate ! and get out and prove you are willing to do more and get involved and even go door to door and pass out literature and put a sign in your yard too.

We can clean house if you get with the program and quit sitting on your fat lazy asses

The Supreme Court, in Smith v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, heard this:

 

"’While it isn’t written in the Constitution,’ declared FDR in 1933, ‘nevertheless, it is the inherent duty of the Federal Government to keep its citizens from starvation.’"

 

The Supreme Court heard this, a quote of Justice Brandeis, a Roosevelt appointee:

 

"Property is only a means. It has been a frequent error of our Court that they have made the means an end."

 

Justice Roberts doesn't support your right to property. Next it will be your right to life.

I'v not claimed to be a Christian. I've said many times I'm not Christian. Jesus wasn't Christian. I believe in Jesus. 

The favor Roberts did was to enrage us. America is in a crucial election year. Half of the nation supports government entitlement.  The other half does not support the present system of redistribution of wealth. There is no clear-cut answer, but the majority is against Obama’s health care plan.

Four conservative justices on the Supreme Court, dissenting in the strongest of terms, hold Obamacare to be unconstitutional. Conservative Chief Justice Roberts decided, on his own, how to allow for Obamacare. His four conservative colleagues call his argument weak.

Liberals called Obamacare’s mandate, that the individual must buy health care insurance, under the commerce clause, ignoring the fact that the Constitution is one of enumerated powers and not general, ignoring the fact that never before had Congress thought the individual must buy something he or she did not want to buy, This is a totally new idea in the way the individual spends his own sweat—by law forced to buy something he doesn’t want, actually saying the producer’s work is government’s to take at will. The Commerce Clause gives government the right to regulate commerce, not to control the economy.    

Justice Roberts’ tiebreaking decision made Obamacare a tax, giving Congress the authority to tax unlimitedly, saying a producer has no right to any of his sweat.

The black slave Dred Scott was held by the Court to be property, the same as a mule or a cow, and now the Supreme Court, by Justice Roberts’ sudden change of opinion, says the individual has zero right to property. He is a tax slave.

In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson wrote, “the separation and equal Station to which the Law of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them,” entitle me, in that I’m “endowed by their (my) Creator with certain unalienable rights.”  One of those rights would by common sense be to exist on the fruits of my own labor.  Justice Roberts “weak argument” says I don’t have the right to one penny of my own work. 

Actually, Justice Roberts says the American people are weak willed. He says it is up to us to vote the present politicians out of office. He says it is up to us to vote into office politicians that will repeal government entitlements in their entirety. Government entitlement goes against every premise of our Constitution. You don’t hear that from politicians.

Personal responsibility and self-reliance are at an all-time low. I don’t advocate pushing grandma over a cliff. I don’t advocate leaving little children to go hungry. To the contrary, it is criminal what we have done to our children. We must phase out government entitlements the way they were phased in—cease to make new workers responsible for past mistakes. Let new workers be entitled to a standard American existence before taxing them. Let those with more than a standard American existence bear the tax burden for that which we have wrought on our children. That is the only fair thing to do.

We who are of normal mental and physical health, who were created with reason and logic, must cease to look to government for help. The rich don’t deprive the poor. They help the poor by providing jobs. We must support free enterprise and the right to be successful.  Give your full support to free enterprise and the wrong we’ve done will be history. Once again, America will become the world’s leader.

I give you my own life to bear witness. My belief in my Constitution, and my action—no thanks to the Supreme Court—has greatly rewarded me.

Joseph:

I love to discuss Healthcare with folks who are addicted to the belief that  American Health Care is worth the price or delivers good care. [it does not]  You seem to claim to be Christian but you put your health care in the hands of people who think that they know more than the one who CREATED your body.

The sham of healthcare is that you think you need it when you do not.

Do the drugs they push for Cholesterol or high Blood Pressure actually prolong life or provide Quality of life [ no they are not proven to by statistics ]

Our medical system is actually 2 systems

The Emergency care for injuries is top shelf

The Preventive care model sucks

So

You want Quality of life

Eat healthy [not in excess] and avoid artificial stuff and exercise .  and avoid the MD's like the plague

Why

Making Obamacare constitutional "awakened a sleeping giant," no thanks to the Superme Court or the other two branches of the Federal Government.  It is going to cost those who can least afford it, the young entry-level worker who can't afford a tax to get health care insurance.

 

In 1975, with a personal stake in the outcome, I took my case of unaffordable tax to the Supreme Court. The Court refused to hear me. I took the court record to the press. A front page story was printed. The government heard me and ate crow. I've written a book of memoirs, In Earth as It Is in Heaven.It will be available in July.

Democrats have just touched the 3rd rail of politics 

They cut some Medicare funding to fund Obama care as well as adding a Big tax increase in a recession

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
