As most of you realize by now, Today’s decision regarding Obamacare has nothing to do with Constitutional law. Chief Justice Roberts had to do some creative thinking to declare that the penalty for not having health insurance is really a justifiable tax.
It’s pointless to analyze law to discover legal reasons for the decision. To get at the reason for the decision, you must know Washington itself. It’s the city and social climate here that are responsible for this bad ruling. The social pressure to be accepted as someone important governs the lives of most people here. Social pressure determines what cars people drive, what stores and restaurants they patronize what clothes they wear Social pressure also determines what ideas are politically correct. If you want to be accepted by people and have friends in this town, you must conform to the liberal status quo. That’s why there are so many RINOs here. We elect good people and send them to Washington; in the pernicious climate they eventually become part of the city’s social climate. They conform to local ideas and simply deceive their constituents about the legislation they are voting for.
After 30 years it was Justice Roberts big chance to stand out and join the Washington in crowd. He’s made himself their champion with his befuddled opinion. Now he’s finally welcome on the Georgetown party circuit. In Washington, that’s more important than right and wrong, honesty or deception, or anything most Americans value. That’s why it’s so important to elect fresh people to Congress.

WAIT A MINUTE PAUL SMITH.....ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE HOUSE DIDN'T VOTE ON THE BILL THAT WAS PASSED BY THE SENATE?   WHERE DID YOU HEAR THAT?  IT HAS TO BE PASSED BY BOTH HOUSES, HOW CAN THAT BE?  ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THIS?  IF THAT BE THE CASE, &  TAXES CAN ONLY BE PLACED BY THE TAXING COMMITTEE OF THE HOUSE, SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE.  PLEASE EXPLAIN FURTHER, I NEVER HEARD THIS.

 THIS RULING IS AN OXYMORON, PEROD.    JUSTICE ROBERTS HAS BECOME AN ACTIVIST JUDGE   & ELENA KAGAN HAD NO VOTING.   SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FORCED TO RECUSE HERSELF BECAUSE SHE PARTICIPATED IN WRITING THE LAW IN THE FIRST PLACE.   ROBERTS  CONTRADICTS  HIMSELF BY FIRST SAYING THAT THE COMMERCE CLAUSE WHICH REGULATES DOING BUSINESS, CAN'T BE APPLIED TO THIS LAW BECAUSE  A MANDATE WHICH FORCES PEOPLE TO BUY A PRODUCT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.  SO IF THE MANDATE WAS CONSIDERED UNCONSTITUTIONAL AS THERE IS NO BUSINESS BEING BEING CONDUCTED TO  REGULATE,   TELL ME HOW YOU CAN TAX IT?   YOU CAN'T!  IT DOESN'T EXIST!  I REALIZE HIS LOGIC IS THAT CONGRESS HAS THE RIGHT TO TAX BUT YOU CAN'T TAX SOMETHING THAT IS RULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL & YOU CAN'T PENALIZE SOMETHING THAT CAN'T BE CONDUCTED.    WHERE IS THE LOGIC HERE?  THIS IS RE-WRITING  THE ACTUAL AFFORDABLE CARE ACT WHICH THEY DIDN'T EVEN READ.  THEY ONLY  PART OF THE LAW THAT WAS ADDRESSED WAS THE MANDATE.  EVERY ATTY TAKING PART IN THIS CASE PLEADED THE CASE THAT IT WAS NOT A "TAX",  SO ROBERTS DECIDES TO MAKE IT A TAX?  REALLY?  THAT'S AN ACTIVIST JUDGE WHO TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF TO RULE ON  A LAW THAT DIDN'T EXIST & NOW BUSINESSES & THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY WILL PAY THE PRICE FOR WHAT THIS JUDGE HAS DONE. HE RULED ON SOMETHING THAT DIDN'T EXIST THEREBY CREATING  CHAOS IN THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY THAT WILL RAISE HEALTHCARE PREMIUMS HIGHER THAN THEY'VE INCREASED ALREADY.   PEOPLE HAVE HAD INCREASES IN THE PAST TWO YEARS  JUST FOR ALLOWING YOUR KIDS TO STAY ON YOUR INSURANCE UNTIL 26 & FOR BEING COVERED FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS.  WE ARE PAYING FOR THESE THINGS ALREADY & THE REST OF IT DOESN'T TAKE EFFECT UNTIL 2014.  THE PRESIDENT LIED,  CONGRESS LIED & OUR AG LIED!  THIS WHOLE MESS WAS CREATED BY GOVERNMENT & ONCE AGAIN LIKE THE HOUSING CRISIS, IT'S GOVERNMENT THAT MESSES THINGS UP.  GET RID OF ALL OF THEM, ESPECIALLY THE DEMOCRATS WHO LIE.  REMEMBER ,  REPUBLICANS DIDN'T VOTE  FOR THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT THAT WAS JAMMED DOWN OUR THROAT IN THE MIDDLE OF NIGHT BY THE DEMOCRATS!  PEOPLE OF AMERICA, YOU HAVE BEEN SNOOKERED ONE MORE TIME & WE WILL SOON BE KNOWN AS THE UNITED NATIONS OF AMERICA & RULED AS PART OF A GLOBAL GOVERNMENT, THANKS TO GEORGE SOROS.  OUR HEALTHCARE WILL BE LIKE EUROPE & WE ARE BECOMING LIKE GREECE, SPAIN & ITALY.  OBAMA TOOK AWAY YOUR JOBS, YOUR BUSINESSES & NOW YOUR HEALTHCARE & WILL TAX YOU TO DEATH, ALL FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE!

This may have also been a blessing in disguise. Anyone sitting on the fence pouting about Romney should now, if they are conscious, be willing actually step up and actively get people to the polls, register to vote, and educate the sleeping masses. Justice Roberts essentially threw it back in our faces, and told us to get off our a----, otherwise we get what we deserve. Enough with  preaching to the choir, people. Sign up, get voter registration forms from your own state AG, and bring them to your Church. Talk to you pastor about the need for all pastors, preachers, etc. to speak as one voice about the loss of freedom that we are headed for if he wins again. The Constitution limits only the United States Government. Not us. Not churches, not any individual. To those pastors fearing the loss of their 5013C status, try sending the IRS after every single church in the US. Obama did not win by that huge of a majority. According to Faith and Freedom, there are enough unregistered or unvoting Christians to make this election all about what we want. I for one, am taking action.

I just found out that Chief Justice has seizures and is on medication that can cause poor decision making. Apparently the NYT did an article at that time recommending that he step down.

According to Michael Savage, M.D., ..."Let's talk about Roberts. I'm going to tell you something that you're not going to hear anywhere else, that you must pay attention to. It's well known that Roberts, unfortunately for him, has suffered from epileptic seizures. Therefore he has been on medication. Therefore neurologists will tell you that medication used for seizure disorders, such as epilepsy, can introduce mental slowing, forgetfulness and other cognitive problems. And if you look at Roberts' writings you can the cognitive disassociation in what he is saying," Michael Savage said on his radio program this evening.


FLASHBACK NYT: Roberts drugs 'can have troubling side effects, mental slowing and forgetfulness'...

(The New York Times) - Despite his quick recovery from the seizure he suffered on Monday, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. faces a complex diagnosis and a difficult decision.

Because the seizure was his second — he had a similar one in 1993 — he meets the criteria for epilepsy, and he and his doctors will have to decide whether he should take medication to prevent further seizures, said neurologists not involved in his care. (Neither the chief justice nor his doctors would comment yesterday.)

Please vote, everyone!  We must get Obama out of office, lest our country be destroyed!  Some advice from a devoted member and American:   Apply for PERMANENT Absentee Ballot.  I know that it is available in  Arizona and it is great for me.

Comment by Rudy Murchie on June 29, 2012 at 9:28am

I don't want to give up my power to vote!!  That's all we have to fight with.  We need to get out the vote and vote in conservatives and when they get to Washington and forget to be conservatives vote them out.  Our vote is our power.  I know it takes a constitutional amendment to change powers of Congress but it doesn't hurt to float the idea and give them second thoughts.

Comment by Duke-Jinx on June 29, 2012 at 9:20am

We know the guy is very sharp. I think he found the way he did for one of two reasons... and maybe both. To give way for future challenge and to wake up the voters.

As said, this will be an avalanche election year.

It IS common law knowledge that all tax bills must originate in Congress. Says so point blank in Our Conststution.

Read it yourself  art. 1 sec 7 para 1

Comment by Rudy Murchie on June 29, 2012 at 9:08am

If Congress is allowed to TAX us at will we need to look at the powers granted to Congress.  Maybe they should be limited in their powers to tax.  Justice Roberts says the mandate can be reasonably be called a tax and Congress can tax as they see fit!!!  Limit the powers of Congress.  Need to get Dems out of Congress and the White House!!!  Lets see to it!

Comment by Duke-Jinx on June 29, 2012 at 9:03am

The ObamacareTax did not originate in the House, it started in the Senate. All tax bills must start in the House. That fact makes  the ZEROCAREcare Tax.... illegal.

Besides trashing it politically, this should be challenged on that ground alone.

Bulldog 4 with that decision they should be serving life.

Lifetime appointments for the supreme's or anybody else is wrong too.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
