Category: Ailing Government


U.S. district judge Roger Vinson, in Pensacola, Florida on Monday threw out the nation’s health care law, declaring it unconstitutional because it violates the Commerce Clause.  The ruling was hailed a victory for individual rights and will surely revive a feud among competing philosophies about the role of government.  The judge ruled that as a result of the unconstitutionality of the “individual mandate” that required people to buy insurance, the entire law must be declared void.

Vinson wrote: “I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the act with the individual mandate. That is not to say, of course, that Congress is without power to address the problems and inequities in our health care system. The health care market is more than one-sixth of the national economy, and without doubt Congress has the power to reform and regulate this market. That has not been disputed in this case. The principal dispute has been about how Congress chose to exercise that power here.”

In spite of the ruling, steps appear to still be taken for it’s implementation.  According to a CBS News report, “The White House officials said that the ruling would not have an impact on implementation of the law, which is being phased in gradually. (The individual mandate, for example, does not begin until 2014.) They said that states cannot use the ruling as a basis to delay implementation in part because the ruling does not rest on “anything like a conventional Constitutional analysis.” Twenty-six states were involved in the lawsuit.”  A popular economics blogger Karl Denninger has even used the word “sedition” to characterise the administrations ongoing activities in spite of the ruling.  I kindly disagree.  The administration’s ongoing steps taken to implement the law, however; may rise to the standard of Contempt of Court which is equally a serious matter.

On April 12, 1999, President Clinton became the first sitting president in United States history to be held in contempt of court. The contempt charge against President Clinton stemmed from a deposition he gave in connection with a 1994 Sexual Harassment lawsuit filed by Paula Jones. Jones v. Clinton, 858 F. Supp. 902 (E.D. Ark. 1994).  Clinton was impeached four months earlier for perjury in that deposition and obstruction of justice, he was acquitted by the Senate behind closed doors on February 12, 1999.  If Judge Vinson holds the administration in contempt, it is conceivable the House of Representatives could move for an impeachment of Obama.  In my opinion, it is doubtful given that governments around the globe are themselves suffering from citizen unrest in light of rampant food inflation caused by the US Federal Reserves dollar debasement policy.

It’s easy to see what’s really going on.  Governments are doing their level best to steal from the middle class.  Banksters are doing their level best to steal from the government and the middle class.  The unions are doing their level best to steal from the middle class.  It’s all out open season on the middle class!  Not that it matters anymore.  The middle class is effectively dead in this country.  The thieving bastards in Congress, the banks, and the union halls will just have to fight each other over the scraps.  As I look around my neighborhood, I count 12 houses for sale.  Six families unemployed.  One lady has had no income, zero income, in over a year.  I honestly don’t know how she has been making it.  My suspicion is, she hasn’t made her house payment in at least a year and has probably been using credit cards paying the minimum the entire time.  Obama said in spring this was going to be the ‘recovery summer.’  What an utter moron!  Obama is truly a dipshit.

There is a nice write-up in the EUTimes and another in the New American here on plans to take your hard earned savings to pay for the ‘extend and pretent’ valuation of our Ponzi currency scheme.  Good luck with that.  I can say with 100% certainty that any attempt to take my money will be met with the same force I have saved for armed crooks breaking into my home.

“We’re from the government and we’re here to help!”  Yeah, right.

We all know the charges of Acorn’s voter registration fraud, but is anyone concerned like me that they’ll, under a new name, spread their tentacles to corrupt the census?  One of the purposes of the census is to accurately count the population distribution so that state legislatures can realign congressional districts.  Districts will be taken from regions that lose population and added to regions that have grown.  This may have a profound impact on the makeup of the US House of Representatives.

I noticed during the NCAA tourney that CBS aired many commercials by the census bureau urging people to fill out the census so that they would “get their fair share.”  I am now wondering, are these commercials aired nationally?  Or are they aired in targeted markets so as to possibly manipulate the census outcome?  I would not be shocked.  After all, the Health-care cram down demonstrated to the rest of the nation that this administration would stop at nothing to foist their agenda upon the people, the will of the people be damned.

The lust of gain–a lust which does not stop short of the penitentiary or the hallowed halls of Congress, may yet be the end of our Constitution.  But we may be sure of one thing, and that is that this sort of thing is not universal.  If it were, this country would not have survived thus far.   Surely of a group numbering fifty men, forty-nine are clean.   Then why is it, one may ask, that the forty-nine don’t set things straight?   Could it be they are actually too busy minding their own business, working a decent and honest job?   Much has been touted recently about what is to be accomplished by organizing, for example, tea party protests, tax revolts, etc.  Yet, it’s because the fiftieth fellow and his dirty pals are organized and the other forty-nine are inclined to honest gain that the dirty one rubs his filth upon the clean man every time.   Things have descended to the point now that both political parties are fully corrupt.   All that remains is for the two festering, diseased zombies to destroy one another so that honest men once again seek to set right a course wronged.

The rhetoric is being ratcheted up against our protesting their looting of our country.   Do something!
