In a puckish twist of fate, Hope n’ Change was preparing for our Friday morning colonoscopy when we got the word of the Supreme Court’s insane ruling in support of Obamacare subsidies. The good news is that we no longer need to chug a couple of gallons of laxatives because we just shit ourselves.
Normally, we’d apologize for using that expletive – but according to dissenting Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in reference to the majority’s bizarre ruling, “words no longer have a meaning.”
And Chief Justice John Roberts (who at this point should be credited as the co-author of Obamacare along with Jonathan “the voters are stupid” Gruber) apparently agrees, saying “in this instance, the context and structure of the act compel us to depart from what would otherwise be the most natural reading of the pertinent statutory phrase.”
But what context and structure is he referring to which compels a departure from reality?
According to Roberts, “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them. If at all possible, we must interpret the act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.”
So Roberts is again violating his duties by ruling on what he believes the intent was when one political party unilaterally passed an act they hadn’t bothered to read. And in coming to his conclusion, Roberts has had to ignore Jonathan Gruber’s plainspoken admissions that the Act was written to deliberately punish states which did not establish their own healthcare exchanges. The “pertinent statutory phrase” was clear, deliberate, and the exact opposite of what Roberts is now saying. [snip]
I’m trying to get some idea of what is happening in this place. Get put up for a couple of weeks where it’s pain killers, sleep, needles and physical therapy and you don’t have much concept of what is going on. Even now I have a hard time sitting up for more than an hour and a half. Hang in with me. I could do without the pain to get the gain.
With this shooting in Charleston, SC, the Mushmouth in the White House amped up the call for disarming America. Any reason to call for a Soviet Style banning of weapons in the hands of civilians is appropriate.
With little fact and much fiction, the Left conjures tales of all sorts of evil about the who and why of guns and gun owners.
One has to determine from what area of the population and which weapon is the choice, Explosives normally are used only by terrorists because they are unwieldy and unreliable.
The following short list should help determine the proximate, precipitate antecedent for gun violence.
- Law abiding Gun Owners
- H-capacity Magazines
- Assault Weapons
- Mental defectives, Criminals
From that list, which numbered group seems to always be involved in these anti-social activities.
Can’t be #5, the Left says they’re victims. These are the ones that didn’t get their trophy. If you’re going to pick an inert object and blame that for actions beyond capabilities, then we are dealing with the very mental dysfunction that causes the Left to appear lost to the sane world.
