  1. Obamacare sucks in every possible way.
  2. The ruling had a somewhat subtle, but firm slap in the face of Congress, declaring that their use of the Commerce Clause was incorrect and that the authority for the act rested under the Taxation Powers of Congress.
  3. In joining with the left, John Roberts may have just handed the November election to the GOP.  Now the GOP has more to run on that “we’re not Obama”.  They’ve got the economy and they’ve got Obamacare.  It won’t be hard for them to point out that the costs of Obamacare will be borne by the taxpayers in the middle of a bad economy – a formula that got them a tremendous victory in the House last November.  The more I think about it, this whole scenario has a very Karl-Rovesque feel to it, with someone playing a much smarter game than anyone’s realizing.
  4. The ruling makes Democrats happy today.  I liken it to a team who just got a touchdown in a football game.  They did, however, miss the extra point and now the other team (the GOP) has excellent field position.  The only question is: can our Bringham-Young-graduate QB take it to the paint?

According to Fox news, the CBO has rated the cost of the Iraq war, and compared to the stimulus passed by the Obama administration the numbers are interesting.  You can read the Fox News report here. 

According to CBO numbers in its Budget and Economic Outlook published this month, the cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom was $709 billion for military and related activities, including training of Iraqi forces and diplomatic operations.

The projected cost of the stimulus, which passed in February 2009, and is expected to have a shelf life of two years, was $862 billion. 

Here is another excerpt on the deficit according to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

The U.S. deficit for fiscal year 2010 is expected to be $1.3 trillion, according to CBO. That compares to a 2007 deficit of $160.7 billion and a 2008 deficit of $458.6 billion, according to data provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

 CULVER CITY, CA - APRIL 17: Game show host Pat Sajak is interviewed on the set of the 'Jeopardy!' Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational Tournament Show Taping on April 17, 2010 in Culver City, California. (Photo by Amanda Edwards/Getty Images)

Finally a voice of reasoning from Hollywood other than Charlie Daniels or Jon Voight.  Mr. Pat Sajak gives us, I mean “the global warming crowd” , (yes the same group of people that believe it is possible for humans to affect the climate of the earth) some very pratical ways they can pracitce what they preach.  Maybe just a little leading by example?

Let’s assume that a third of the world’s population really believes mankind has the power to adjust the Earth’s thermostat through lifestyle decisions. The percentage may be higher or lower, but, for the sake of this exercise, let’s put it at one-third. Now it seems to me these people have a special obligation to change their lives dramatically because they truly believe catastrophe lies ahead if they don’t. The other two-thirds are merely ignorant, so they can hardly be blamed for their actions.

Now, if those True Believers would give up their cars and big homes and truly change the way they live, I can’t imagine that there wouldn’t be some measurable impact on the Earth in just a few short years. I’m not talking about recycling Evian bottles, but truly simplifying their lives. Even if you were, say, a former Vice President, you would give up extra homes and jets and limos. I see communes with organic farms and lives freed from polluting technology.

Then, when the rest of us saw the results of their actions—you know, the earth cooling, oceans lowering, polar bears frolicking and glaciers growing—we would see the error of our ways and join the crusade voluntarily and enthusiastically.

This should at least win idea of the day?  Maybe idea of the week or even month?  The problem is, the lefty environmentalist only want you to “Do as I say, not as I do”.  All Pat is asking is,  if you are so serious about all of this, show us the way.  We will follow suit like Lemmings off a cliff as soon as we are  visually enlightened by all of the “Global Warming” rhetoric, babble and smoke blowing.

Until then, stop trying to pass laws that will apply new taxes and fees to the citizens of the United States.  Quit telling us we need to buy florecent bulbs because they are better for the environment.  (Did you know that is the reason the fish in WI have high mecury levels is because people are too lazy to drive down to the local hardware stores to recycle them.  I’m sure it’s just the conservative-Republican earth haters though)  Please, no more telling us that we need to drive a car that wouldn’t survive a collision with a moped to save the environment.  For the love of Pete stop telling us to do all of the things that are going to save the planet and bankrupt us in the process. All the while still traveling in your private or commercial jets and trying to off set your pollution with carbon credits/offsets. 

I know it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy that you can still be a pollution hog and just offset your destruction of our planet by shuting off your computer at night, turning off the water while you brush your teeth, or using candles to read.  But the fact is that every time you hop on that plane, or get in your car, you are polluting.  You can’t take it away with a shower every three days.

Anyway, I think Pat Sajak is on to something here.  And for the record, there is no one who is a conservative that is of sound mind, who really wants to destroy the earth.  Be assured, sleep well at night knowing that we want to protect the earth and conserve it as well.

Side note:  I know that the Price is right is not Sajak’s game show, but I thought I’d use it anyway in the title.

WASHINGTON - JULY 16: U.S. President Barack Obama speaks in the Rose Garden about the BP oil spill situation in the Gulf of Mexico, on July 16, 2010 in Washington, DC.

Nice little video on Vimeo from rightchange that shows a timeline on the president’s response after the BP oil disaster in the Gulf.

Plump full of the most prominent conservative media faces today.   oops, I mean liberal.  Yes, that’s right the ones taking the President to task are his own party and buddies.

There isn’t anything new in the video, it is just well put together and lays it all out.

Oil Spill Timeline from RightChange on Vimeo.

Go ahead, take a look.  It’s 4 minutes long.

It’s bad enough that the Press has labeled Tea-Parties as right wing extremist, that the Obama Regime is out to tell everyone that we are terrorist or worse, but we all know the truth of who the real radicals are:

Bob Etheridge Rep- 2nd District Democrat NC:

Democrat Activist attacks former NC Senate/US House Rep Candidate Nathan Tabor in Greensboro North Carolina.

If you watch these video’s just who do you think are the angry radicals? The Dems. Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their cronies are out to take away your freedom. Don’t you ever doubt it.

A harbinger of November loomed this past week when predominate Senators from both sides, including turncoat Arlen Specter were booted out in the primaries this past Tuesday. Think the voters are fed up with Washington, being led by the Socialist leader Barry Obama? If you had any doubts, they should be gone by now. All these Incumbents, who haven’t conveniently retired, are on notice that if they are against the will of the people, the will of the people will toss them out. Just look at Republican Trey Greyson from Kentucky, who was booted out by Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul. Why? Because this incumbent voted for the TARP bailout program. Bad-move Trey, enjoy your time off.

So the Democrats kept John Murtha’s old seat in Blue State Pennsylvania. Doesn’t mean much to me, as the grandfather of them all Arlen Specter was tossed out on his Kiester. If this isn’t a big shout out that people are getting ready to flood the polls this November, then non-believers are in denial. Arkansas’s Blanche Lincoln is next on the hit list, being forced into a run-off this June.

Whether or not this incumbent shooting match will spell big Republican Victories in November remains to be seen. Will the Tea Party movement move toward the Republican side or will they just move towards non-political candidates? Only time will tell, but I do know that those of that still believe in this country are getting what we want: the people taking their country back!

So during the presidential election in 2008, one of the main cornerstone’s of Obama’s campaign (besides Socialist Change) was criticism of then President Bush and the 4 day wait in response to the devastation in Louisiana and Mississippi caused by Hurricane Katrina. For months President Bush was hounded by the slow response of FEMA and relief by the Federal Government. Of course the fact that then Democrat Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, turned away Red Cross Relief efforts that day after Hurricane Katrina struck is never mentioned. Months on end, we heard basically how President Bush screwed it up, and well he hates black people.

Now, because of the tragic explosion and sinking of BP’s oil platform in the coast, which is causing 5,000 barrels a day to pollute the gulf and wash up in Louisiana and threaten 5 other states, it only took Obama NINE days to take notice, and ELEVEN days for the EPA to get into gear. Where is the media on this presidential blunder? Where is it on the news for 24 hours a day? Why Obama must hate white people, because all those people who make their lively hood by running shrimping boats are going to go out of business. There is nothing like a little oil flavoring to season our Shrimp Etouffee.

Of course, common sense dictates that disasters, whether caused by Mother Nature, or by human accident will happen and occur from time to time. Human lives will be lost, no matter what race, color or creed of those involved. It is always a tragedy when these things occur, and in many cases these things cannot be prevented no matter how many safety procedures or precautions we take. The matter of fact to lay the blame of Katrina on President Bush and lay the blame of BP’s disaster on President Obama is an oxymoron. The issue I have is one: Is it really up to the Federal Government to provide relief? Note: Florida and not the Federal Government has provided its own hurricane relief efforts. and Secondly: If you are going to criticize President Bush for Katrina, is it not only right to criticize President Obama for the BP scenario? I mean don’t you think a nine-day response is worse than a four-day response? And Obama recently eased restrictions on Oil Drilling Platforms as well. Ain’t that a wonder?
