- 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?

There’s nothing like watching a Union thug beat a Nikki Haley piñata to make you ask a simple question: why is it OK? Or, to be a bit more direct: would it be OK if someone made a Barack Obama piñata and beat it with a stick?
I’m not saying that the right has been innocent in their treatment of liberals, but… well, we are. Seriously. There’s no comparison. Between the union thugs assaulting people who disagree with them to the Occupiers who attack cops and destroy private property, the left seems to have trouble containing the most violent of their ranks.
In comparison, the Tea Party events were peaceful, well-organized, and cooperative with law enforcement. I’ve been able to come across a couple of stories of TPers getting arrested (most notably when a group decided to Occupy the Hart Office Building in Washington DC), but most of the events have been peaceful. Sure, there’ve been accusations of people spitting on Congressmen and calling them names, and one CNN producer totally heard a Tea Partier use the F-word once, maybe, possibly…. but in comparison to the Occupy Twits? They’re freakin’ boy scouts.
The point being that equivocation only serves its purpose when there’s something to equivocate, and there’s nothing here to equivocate. I’ll go ahead and say it: the AFL/CIO idiot who made a Nikki Haley piñata was just as wrong as someone who’d make a Barack Obama piñata. They’re both idiots and should both be treated accordingly.
As anyone who’s read this blog over the past few years (including the desert years of 2009-2011) knows, I’m more than happy to hold those on the left accountable for their idiocy and to call them to task for being… well… illogical and willfully stupid. And so, some people may think that my laser beam of stupid is aimed only at liberals and that I’m unwilling to hold my own – or myself – accountable. Those people would be wrong.
When it comes to politics, I’m a solid right-conservative. My Political Compass rating (an excellent test for determining your personal beliefs, even if their analysis of public figures is way off – they rank Obama as a right-authoritarian) is a 7.12 economic and 0.15 social, so you know where I’m coming from: a fairly Reaganesque, but not hard-right conservative. And as conservative as I am, I am well aware of the fact that there are those who do not share my beliefs. The last 5 Republican Presidential nominees and presumptive nominees (Romney, McCain, Bush II, Dole, and Bush I) have all been much more moderate than my own beliefs. And yet, though these differences existed, I came to the conclusion that, at the end of the day, my 80% political friend was not my political enemy.
And yet, what I see happening on the right now is to take Reagan’s sage advice to his staff back in 1972 (“The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally — not a 20 percent traitor”) and flush it down the commode in an attempt to find the mystical “perfect candidate”. It goes to the point of people misunderstanding what conservatism really is, and calling out anyone who disagrees with us on a single issue. Example? OK. I’ve heard more than one conservative call out Marco Rubio as an imperfect RINO in waiting because, according to them, he supports the DREAM Act (or at least, a version of it).
OK, let’s think about this for a minute. First – let’s talk about his version of the DREAM Act and what it really is. First – it’s not even on the table yet. It’s not even been proposed. However, the word on the street is that the revised DREAM Act being proposed will basically allow children (who cannot be legally responsible) who were brought over the border by their parents (not of their own free will) who work to complete school, register for selective service, and be good citizens (no troublemakers or layabouts allowed) an opportunity to work within the existing immigration system (not creating a pathway to citizenship, thus preserving our existing investment in our legal immigrants) to stay in the country (rather than being thrown back over the border to a country they may not even remember). In other words: it allows kids who had no choice in becoming illegal immigrants both an impetus to be good people and an opportunity to become law-abiding adults without ignoring their status as an illegal immigrant. Simply put: this is a good thing.
Let me say it again: providing people who were unwillingly dragged into breaking the law an opportunity to follow the law is a good thing. Period.
And yet, there are way too many conservatives who are ready to throw Rubio under the bus because he won’t toe the hard-line school of “we don’t care if they haven’t lived in Mexico since they were 2 – throw them back over the border”. Marco Rubio. A man whose voting record has earned him a 100% rating from the American Conservative Union, whose record of conservative leadership in Florida has earned him the respect of people around this country. A man whose common-sense responsible conservatism has earned him a potential tap as the Vice Presidential nominee of our country.
And these idiots are calling him a RINO, not because he HAS stepped out of line on an issue… but because he MAY step out of line on an issue. Ditto with other conservatives, including some of the most conservative members of Congress out there.
We saw it all primary season long… Republican candidates who would rise up to challenge Mitt Romney and then get knocked down by the conservative branch because they weren’t the perfect conservative candidate that Ronald Reagan was (the same Reagan who raised taxes, spent money like water – arguably with good reason, and who provided blanket amnesty for a group of illegal immigrants). Tim Pawlenty (a strong mainstream conservative whose sin was supporting cap and trade), Rick Perry (another mainstream conservative who supported vaccinating girls against cancer and supported the Trans-Texas Corridor), Newt Gingrich (a successful conservative leader with a 90% ACU rating who got in trouble for global warming and for opening his mouth too much). And the result: we’re left with Mitt Romney… whose lifetime ACU Rating is 55.
Congrats, conservatives. Thanks to you throwing good candidates under the bus, we’re left with a middle-ground squish. Mission Accomplished! And now, having learned absolutely nothing from the Primaries, you turn your attention to demonizing some of the most conservative people in this country because they’re not good enough on maybe – MAYBE one issue. They’re like the geniuses who refused to vote for Sarah Palin for Vice President because a woman’s place is, apparently, in the home, ignoring the fact that she was a successful, inspirational administrator with a conservative and anti-corruption record longer than the Alaskan coastline.
So, this is my love letter to my fellow conservatives, and as much as it hurts me to say it: stop being idiots. You’re acting like a bunch of retards. As much as I loathe Romney’s moderate politics, you’re going to have to admit that it’s you conservatives who got us into this mess with him as a candidate because you were too focused on nuking your own wounded and not building a consensus candidate that could appeal to the entire party. You were too busy running the bus over the people who failed the perfect-conservative litmus test and not busy at figuring out how to play a political game that requires more finesse than a Sherman Tank and that doesn’t alienate 30% of your potential voters.
Or, you could at least try to act like adults. That would be a nice change.

The next time a liberal talks about how we need to ramp down the tone of political discussion, I’d like to invite them to examine their own behavior first. Then I’d tell them to shove it up their butts sideways.
Why? Because the whole discussion going on nowadays after the reprehensible acts of a crazed loon is focusing on the wrong issues. Jared Loughner a is a waste of flesh with no links to any political group, right wing or otherwise (although some of his statements do indicate left-line thinking). It isn’t his politics – or any kind of political discussion – that drove him to do this.
The simple fact is that political discussion, like guns, video games, rock music, movies, TV, and potty training has become the latest boogeyman for those who don’t understand that people are not necessarily naturally good. In fact, my own belief is that people aren’t good or evil – they’re sinful… but not necessarily “evil”. People become evil over time, whether through rotten upbringing, poor environment, bad genetics, nightmare experiences, screwed up chemicals, or hormones gone nuts. Whatever the cause… the root cause for a person’s decision to do evil comes down to that person and their choices.
The bigger danger here, in my opinion, is that those with power will take steps to ensure that this will “never happen again”… by infringing upon the rights guaranteed us in the Constitution. While it’s nice to say “we need to stop all the violent rhetoric”, it’s one thing to ask people to do so – it’s yet another to use the force of law to infringe the right of free speech or to further restrict our right to defend ourselves from people who have no concerns about such restrictions. Our rights and freedoms cannot become the prisoners of those who misuse them.
In the meantime, I hope you’ll join me in prayer for the safe and full recovery of the victims of Jared Loughner, including Congresswoman Giffords. May God grant healing to those who survived, peace to the families of those who died, and justice to their attacker.

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.

Sometimes, you just can’t help laughing at the state of affairs in the world. Laughter helps the world go ’round. It also distracts my brain from its deep-seeded desire to eat its way out of the back of my skull for having been exposed to the ongoing theater of the absurd that is the war on the Tea Parties.
Now, it seems that our beloved Teleprompter has joined in with the self-appointed clowns of the left in referring to those who disagree with Obama, Communism, and the general flushing of our Constitution, principles, and nation down the toilet… by vulgar sexual slang. Honestly, if it were just him as a private citizen, we could almost laugh it off. Especially the whole hypocrisy part, where he calls for civility while at the same time calling people names like any good 6-year-old bully would do. But A) he’s the President; and B) it’s a pattern of behavior by members of the left.
From unapologetic vulgar sexual slang to bizarre theories of assistance based on political voting patterns to false accusations of racist comments to conspiracy theories that would normally get one committed to an asylum, the left’s war on the right – and common sense – continues, unstopped by any of those pesky “facts” or “opposition in the media”.
And they wonder why the latest polls show a butt-whoopin’ coming this November.

By the way, remember all the complaining about Bush being “on vacation” all the time? How he’d go down to Texas to work, but liberals screamed about how evil he was to have gone to Texas to work?
Well, in 8 years, Mr. Bush played golf 24 times – about 3 times a year. In ONE year, Mr. Obama has played golf 32 times.
At least now we know where he was when he couldn’t find time to meet with his commanders on the ground in Afghanistan.
Look, I don’t begrudge the Prez a round of golf every once in a while. Personally, I gave up golf when I realized it was an expensive waste of my time that I was never going to improve upon (I took up skeet shooting), but different strokes for different folks. The problem isn’t that the man takes time out to go plink out a round of swing n’ cuss… it’s that he’s spending way too much time on entertaining himself.
We conservatives were lectured for 8 years on how George W. Bush is running the country into the ground by ignoring the pleas of countries who weren’t our allies. But now, Obama is actively attacking our allies (or emboldening their enemies) or behaving in a way that shows our allies that the tragic deaths of their leaders just doesn’t matter.
And they wonder why trust in our government is at an all-time low.

And to think, all the Soviet Union would’ve had to do is to wait. Yesterday, the cocaine-snorting communist announced that he would not respond with nuclear arms, even if attacked by an enemy WITH nuclear arms.
No, our Commander-in-Chief would rather save our massive nuclear stockpile for such large-scale nuclear assaults by nations like Iran and North Korea who, between the 2 of them, may have fewer than 20 low-yield nukes.
But if another country like, say, Russia or China unleashes hundreds or thousands of nuclear warheads on the US mainland? Nah… we’ll just sit back and take a couple hundred megatons for the team. In the name of peace, of course.
Bonus: Russia reserves the right to bow out of the recent nuke treaty Obama negotiated for us.
On one hand, I seriously want to refer to Barack Hussein Obama as a complete and total retard. I’d love to believe that he’s naive enough to think that if we promise not to strike back, we can preemptively avoid the possibility of attack by a major nuclear power bent on the destruction of the United States.
But I don’t believe it. He’s not stupid. He’s not naive. He’s simply an aggressive anti-American who has more in common with the Communists who used to – and still do – run those countries who stand against us as rival superpowers than he does with people who think America is good. The reason I believe he has already surrendered is because he’s already on their side. He is the most dangerous man ever to sit in the Oval Office chair, and it is our responsibility as people who love freedom to stand against him and pray for his utter failure.

“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.

“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.
