Supreme Court

Concert hall of the "Supremes!"

Many of us are still scratching our heads over Obama‘s remarks to/about the role of the Supreme Court this past Monday.  There have been in our past Presidents who have had contention with the “Justice’s Nine,” however, I don’t think it’s EVER been in question that a primary role of the Supreme Court is to rule on the constitutionality of  legislation.

In fact, the President’s assertion is so ridiculous that one could similarly argue that he has no right to veto legislation passed by a strong congressional majority.

Many have suggested this is Obama’s Chicago thug political style coming through.  Well, I didn’t notice any words or tones that sounded threatening.  In fact, I thought he sounded desperate.

As for me, I have no concerns about the black-robed ones being unduly influenced by ANYONE.  I’m quite sure that each Justice has already made up his or her mind.  A vote has been taken.  There will be some deliberations, but I doubt any of them will change their minds.  They didn’t get to their appointment by being wishy-washy.  At least I wouldn’t think so.

In June we’ll know the verdict.  I doubt there is anyone more anxious about the ruling than the President himself.

Overruled!

Much to the relief of a majority of Americans, so called “Obamacare” has been ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge.

Interestingly, that judge used President Obama’s own words to illustrate his legal decision.  See the video below.

The individual mandate, as it is called, and that mandate’s inseverability from the rest of the legislation proved to be the achille’s heel of Obamacare.  It will now go to the Supreme Court of the United States sometime next year.  We hope there it will be ruled with finality to be unconstitutional.

Speed bump or crash barrier?

Universal health care is a passionately desired goal of the left.  If it is struck down, by no means a certainty, they will bring it AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN.   Why?  Well listen to the great Ronaldus Maximus explain.

They JUST WILL.  Did you watch the video?  Reagan could have made that speech yesterday unchanged and it would be just as relevant.

Even if we win this battle against the encroachment of socialism, it is only one battle and THIS battle will be fought again as well as many others.   Now is no time for respite.

P.S. Aside from all that has already been said, one of my MAIN objections to government run health care is that they are just SO lousy at running anything.
