Hear ye, hear ye! A royal decree!

7 August 2013

“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it…” Princess Pelosi, 9 Mar 2010

All ye loyal subjects! Hear ye well that King Øbama has decreed in his majestic benevolence that the nobility which maketh the Congress, and their vassals, and their servants, shall henceforth not be subject to the GRAND TAX humorously called the “affordable” care act.

Be it further known that his glorious highness Øbama has decreed this necessary to prevent a “brain drain” within his court; however, he cares not one wit – nay! HE DESIRES! – that a similar brain drain occur across the guilds and trades in the land, rendering all subservient to Washington.

Frankly, I’d argue the brain drain occurred in Washington long, long ago. If you need any further proof that there are two classes in this country – the elite political class, and the rest of us – then I haven’t a clue what form that proof need take.

The Constitution Is Dead

28 June 2012

Mourning the Constitution, and damning the supreme cowards…

Well, that’s it, then. The supreme court has sold out the constitution and with it: all of us. Welcome to the USSA. Cancel the election. Emperor Øbama does, in fact, have new clothes.

Instead of assessing Øbamacare against the constitution on its own merits as written, the supreme cowards made the administration’s arguments for them – though again and again, the administration asserted that the individual mandate was not  a tax. In fact, I fail to see how mandating an individual citizen to buy a product can be construed as anything but a tax in the first place! 

This goes against everything the founding fathers stood for. And for all you 99%ers out there high-fiving and clapping each other on the back: you will regret this – just as the Canadian and British citizens have come to regret their version of the same Marxist premise.

Atlas has indeed shrugged today. And the rule of law is dead.

Beliefs

20 June 2012

…and your little Rule of Law, too!

 “I think we are ironclad on the constitutionality of [ObamaCare]. We believe in the Constitution. We believe in judicial review. … But I think it’s also important for the public to know that obstruction is the agenda of the Republican party. If they win, that will be their agenda. They don’t believe in a government role, clean air, clean water. You name it.” –House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

I’m with you, Nan! For instance, like your belief in the Constitution, I believe there is a thing called the Q’ran. And, like with you and the Constitution, I have no intent of implementing or defending anything in the Q’ran.

Of course, the major discrepency here is that never took an oath to support and defend the Q’ran. You, on the other hand, took an oath to support and defend the constitution- an oath that clearly had no meaning to you.

I think you can shut up, now.

Judicial Activism vs. Unconstitutionalism

2 April 2012

The core of Øbamacare is death to the Constitution

Oh, boy – a rarity. Two Pateratic posts in one day.

The would-be dictator at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue cautions that, should the Supreme Court rightfully reject the individual mandate and, with it, Øbamacare, that they will have been guilty of judicial activism.

Really?!

By doing what they’re supposed to do – defend the constitution – they are activist in his eyes. While, I guess, redefining the Constitution through, say, Roe v Wade isn’t? Redefining marriage from what it has been for literally millenia is not judicial activism? Overturning results in which the majority of the people have made a decision is not judicial activism, but overturning a decision made merely by the majority of congressmen would be? Of course! It’s only judicial activism when it doesn’t suit his purposes.

And, I suppose, an executive branch that ignores constitutional limits – and the court and congress that lets him get away with it – are not activist, either?

What kind of twisted logic is this jackass operating under?

In any case, if The Supremes do not overturn Øbamacare, then it is up to we, the people. This must not stand. The individual mandate in Øbamacare removes any limit from what the federal government can do to us under interpretation of the Constitution today. It must not stand!
