- Obamacare sucks in every possible way.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?

So the court says Obamacare is a-OK. That’s right: the right of the government to force you to spend your money how they see fit is covered under “taxation authority”. And, as expected, there’s a lot of blame to be passed around, most of it resting on the back of Chief Justice John Roberts.
But I don’t blame Roberts. Honestly, looking at the ruling, I see the direction he was heading in: Congress has the power to tax you, and forcing you to buy health insurance is no different. It’s not an argument I agree with 100%, but it’s a logical one. It also throws the role of healthcare back into the legislature. No, I don’t blame Roberts or even the left side of the court.
I blame you.
That’s right, America – I blame you. You’re the one who elected these idiots. You’re the one who voted for “hope” and “change” instead of thinking things through. You’re the ones who voted retards into Congress assuring us that they were nowhere near as socialist and liberal as we said they were. You, and only you, are the ones that I hold responsible for wiping your ass with our constitution, our economy, and our future and flushing it down the toilet. You were stupid.
You don’t like that, do you? You don’t like me calling you a bunch of retards? Well, then, you shouldn’t have voted for retards.
Want to change my mind about you? Then freaking vote right this time. Stop sticking your fingers in your ears when someone tells you that Obama and his radical left are lying to you. Stop feeling bad about your own racism, thinking you can cure it by voting for a black guy who hangs out with domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers. Stop not thinking things through.
And you Republicans? Don’t you DARE back down on this. Take hold of the reins that the people are screaming at you to take hold of and show us some leadership. Defund this piece of garbage and send it back to hell where it belongs. Be conservative, not stupid.

Recently, a friend of mine pointed out this chick:
For those of you who’ve been paying attention for a while, you can guess what the liberal response was. Here’s a few choice quotes:
Hey, you really seem like one stupid c*nt. That being said, I’d still let you wrap yours lips around my c*ck.”
“This b*tch is Psycho!”
“A hate mongering bigot, she probably supports modern day slavery as well.”
“The Palin legacy, people…..*sigh*”
“She’s bats*it crazy!!”
Yep. That’s liberals at their best for you! There’s nothing that says “classy” like Internet-published rape fantasies about a 16-year-old girl who has opinions that you don’t agree with. That puts her square into, at the very least, stage 2 of the stages of conservative female abuse. She’s in good company.
I know what you’re saying… “Mr. Elephant,” because that’s my name, “you called liberalism dumb! And a religion! You can’t do that! It’s just a political philosophy that’s different from yours! Aren’t you giving in to the same hate you’re criticizing those responders in that video for?”
Silly person. Let me educate you. And before we get started – no, I’m not giving in to the hate. While I despise the philosophy of liberalism, I’m not (and I don’t know a single conservative who is) sexualizing and demonizing a 16-year-old girl who disagrees with me… because I am an adult and choose to act like it. I also stand by what I say: Liberalism is a dumb religion.
- Liberalism is a religion. That’s why whenever anyone starts quoting from the Bible as the basis for their beliefs, they tend to go ballistic. Simply put: a Biblical worldview stands in direct contrast to a modern American liberal/socialist worldview. Their belief in the state as the supreme deity stands in contrast to Christ’s claim that HE was the way, the truth, and the life. Ann Coulter spent an entire, excellent book pointing out exactly how liberalism is, in fact, a secularist state-based religion, and while I disagree with her conclusions regarding Darwinism (don’t get me started on that stupid debate), her conclusions regarding the cult-like devotion to liberalism by liberals is spot-on.
Liberals are dumb. I hate to put it that simply, but when you have a group of people who think you can tax a nation into success and that penalizing success is a good idea (instead of recognizing that success breeds more success) and that catering to the lowest common denominator is a bad idea, then you have to conclude that those who believe this are dumb. Are you asking me if I actually believe that Karl Marx and all of his derivative socioeconomic systems were dumb? Yes. Yes, I do. Every single last aspect of them.
“But Mr. Elephant,” you cry like an infant, “what about when someone’s poor, out of work, and lying at home in bed because they got hit by a truck full of the Ebola virus? Doesn’t the fact that the government can step in and help those poor souls prove that you’re wrong?”
No, it does not. No reasonable person would disagree that there is a great benefit to a small group of needy people being assisted in a way that allows them to reach for the maximum amount of their contribution to society, say by assisting them when they are out of work, providing for their medical needs when they are in desperate circumstances, providing them with food, shelter, and the basic needs. However, where we disagree is in both the source of that assistance and in the quantity of that assistance. A smart person recognizes that whether the assistance comes from the state or private charity, that ultimately, the source of that assistance (besides God) are human beings who pay for that assistance. Welfare does not allow you to create assistance out of thin air – the money has to come from somewhere. A smart person also recognizes that if you give a mouse a cookie, they’re going to want a lifetime of comfortable living on the public dole, with steak and lobster dinners, a nice house, digital cable TV, top-notch medical care, 4 cell phones with unlimited texting, and a partridge in a pear tree.
A dumb person thinks that the money just appears out of the unlimited government coffers and that helping people forever who don’t contribute to society is a sustainable model. They scream that, sure, while socialism failed in the USSR, the Eastern Bloc, and Africa, and where it hasn’t failed it keeps people in abject poverty, that it’s just because we haven’t tried the perfect system yet. If we would just try TROOOOOOO Marxism, Stalinism, Maoism, Castroism, etc., it would work perfectly! They’re ignorant of the fact that as long as there are people (who are by nature territorial, greedy, and in need of boundaries), socialism is doomed to failure.
- Liberals are hypocrites. Liberals hold others to standards that they are unwilling to hold themselves to. They scream about the separation of church and state, and then treat Obama like a messianic figure when he goes into or sends others into black churches to raise money for their campaigns. They whine about how voting against gay marriage is based in hate and ignorance – and then ignorantly spew their hate on 16-year-old girls who can’t vote and whose personal politics offend them. They cry about how women should be able to have taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, but work to block the executions of admitted, tried, and convicted cop-killers because killing is wrong.
Let’s talk about sex. There is no issue that liberals think is more important in the world than the right to government-funded consequence-free sex, to the point where it’s the cornerstone of their religion. That’s why they parade idiots like Sandra Fluke (30-year-old activists masquerading as 23-year-old college coeds) around to try to get the government to force Catholic institutions to distribute free birth control against the Catholic faith, because they see their own religion’s cornerstone as being far more important than that of thousands of years of Catholic traditions. Liberals believe that any and all sex should be free of any kind of government interference, unless it’s interfering with the rights of fathers. To liberals, moms possess a magical device called a “vagina” that magically tells them when it’s OK to murder their unborn infants. If dad wants to raise the child, it doesn’t matter, because he lacks the magical vaginal ability to determine if a child should be murdered due to its giving mommy stretch marks. But if mommy wants to bring the child to term, that’s her business (unless she’s Sarah Palin), and the government will be there to lessen the consequence of that decision by ensuring that dad, who had no say in whether the child should be carried to term or not, is forced to give up half his salary so that mom can live more comfortably, and if that means weekends in jail for dad when he can’t afford his payments, well, he should’ve thought about that!
The irony of this being that if liberals weren’t so dead-set opposed to the traditional family, there would already be a method in place to ensure that sex between 2 consenting adults is an enjoyable process, that there’d be a mom and a dad available to rear their child, and both parents would actively contribute to the family’s needs.
As I said in the title, Liberalism is a dumb, hypocritical, sex-based religion. And if you disagree with me, I won’t say you’re worse than Hitler… you’re just wrong.
Now, am I saying that liberals can’t have an occasional smart moment, or that all conservatives are always smart all the time? No. I am not talking about incidents – I am talking about consistent patterns of behavior that demonstrate, conclusively, that liberals are members of a dumb, hypocritical sex cult. Which is perfect, because whenever I think of liberals, I keep thinking “screw you”.
So it all works out.

This is a great visual analogy. It’s less than two minutes and well worth a watch. It’s funny, creative and very informative.

I wondered why these companies had not spoken out sooner, when it could have done some good. I suppose this is the answer: they know how vindictive the Democrats are. The Democrats’ reaction would have been even more hostile (and more dangerous to the companies’ well-being) if they had dared to blow the whistle on Obamacare before Congress voted.

“SEC. 4191. MEDICAL DEVICES. (a) IN GENERAL.—There is hereby imposed on the sale of any taxable medical device by the manufacturer, producer, or importer a tax equal to 2.3 percent of the price for which so sold. (b) TAXABLE MEDICAL DEVICE.—For purposes of this section— (1) IN GENERAL.—The term ‘taxable medical device’ means any device (as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act) intended for humans. (2) EXEMPTIONS.—Such term shall not include— (A) eyeglasses, (B) contact lenses, (C) hearing aids, and (D) any other medical device determined by the Secretary to be of a type which is generally purchased by the general public at retail for individual use.’’
That’s right, ladies! Lucky you! You get to pay 2.3% more for your lady stuff. But fear not! In our wonderful politically-correct world, fellas will have to pay more for their fella stuff… I guess that means “condoms”, but I dunno.
Compression stockings for diabetics? 2.3%.
Pill sorters? 2.3%.
ACE Bandages? 2.3%
Breast pumps for pumping milk for babies? 2.3%
Dentures, both partial and full 2.3%
Fetal cell-screening kit 2.3%
Female condoms, single use 2.3% (cuz girls can buy condoms, too!)
Treponemal syphilis test 2.3%
HIV saliva test kit 2.3%
Stair-climbing wheelchair 2.3%
Inflatable penis prosthetics 2.3% (do people actually buy these?)
Hip, knee, ankle, breast prosthetics 2.3%
Dialysis catheters 2.3%
Sickle-cell anemia tests 2.3%
How’s that for a “tax on the rich”? I sure am glad they covered pre-existing conditions for kids to make up for this stupidity…
Wait a minute… seriously? They forgot it? Well, surely there aren’t other taxes buried in there…
Wait a minute… there are? Well… I guess I’d oppose it, but apparently, people who oppose government healthcare are terrorists.

“Hours after President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation, a potential problem emerged. Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children.”

“The president said the number one issue before us is jobs in 2010, and we couldn’t agree more, in fact the three top issues on our agenda are jobs, jobs and jobs”
The video below is under 2 minutes. Take the time and watch it. I can only assume by jobs the Democrats meant Health Care Reform. The two terms are apparently synonymous. I’m sure the focus will return to jobs after he is done with his “victory lap”, which is more likely to turn into an attempt to try and sell the already passed Health Care bill. It is a little sad that there is a need to convince the public how great the bill is after it is passed. There is a thought shared among the administration and Americans that support the bill that the public is misinformed about the bill. I have heard it over and over. Rest assured, those of us who are upset and that do not support the bill are not misinformed. I have no doubt that the Presidents 51st , or 52nd ”why we need to love this bill” speech in Iowa will do little to change the opposed minds. It will however regurgitate the same talking points Obama has been using for the past year to feed the lemmings that so faithfully , blindly follow every word he utters.
Here is another 2 minute video with Obama telling lying to us:
“The Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk”
Sure we will. Anything else you want us to drink up??? The sweet drink is so easy for some to swallow.

Step 1: A super bowl ad for $2.5 million
Step 2: A letter from the U.S. Census Bureau stating that in a few weeks I will be receiving the Census questionnaire to fill out.
Step 3: The actual Census questionnaire is delivered.
Step 4: A post card from the Census Bureau letting me know that I should have received a request to participate in the 2010 Census. Here is the charm: “if you have already provided your census information, please accept our sincere thanks.”
Now, I am as forgetful as the next person. That being said, with the $2.5 million spent on the commercial, and the postage paid for three separate mailings by our government, is it financially responsible? Of course it isn’t. Everything to my knowledge was mailed first class postage. That is 28 cents for the post card and 44 cents for the “just letting you know it’s coming” letter. I believe the census is sent to 120 million homes/families. That is over $8.5 million not including the Census form or all of the temporary hires.
Is this a Liberal thing? No, it’s a government thing. I have no doubt that the same circumstances would have followed if McCain would have been President.
Chalk this up to example number 1,365 why the government has a really really really hard time spending money wisely. Is it any wonder why so many are leery of all the money related promises of the Health Care bill: Premiums will go down, it will lower the deficit, it will improve the economy? I guess we will have to wait and see, we’ll know soon enough. After all, this administration is truly remarkable. The Obama administration is unlike any other, everything they say is the truth and they do not lie. They are not spending more in their first year than any other president. Obama has shown through example that he and his administration will be financially responsible. We have no reason to doubt any of the claims being made. O wait, never mind.

The Democrat-led House, in a move that was as shocking as discovering that the sun comes up in the morning, approved the unconstitutional, socialistic takeover of 1/6 of the United States economy. Apparently, they believed that the free market was too full of dumb people who had the audacity to believe their money should be controlled by them, and so they moved to address that issue with a rapidity that would make a snail’s head spin about 5 degrees to the left. I mean, it only took them 100 years to match the Soviet Union in health quality.
But the battle isn’t done, kids… there’s one more house of legislature to go through where the “supermajority” that evaporated in February, where those evil Republicans are likely to throw up annoying questions like “how in the hell are we going to pay for this?”, “where is this in the Constitution”, and “You Lie” – or this month’s equivalent, “Hell, no, you can’t.”
And after that… if it gets to Der Kommisar’s desk… there’s a court system full of attorneys ready to point out little things like “it’s not in the constitution”.
