Elena Kagan and the Supreme Court…

October 22, 2012

And now for some Monday morning humor….

Elena Kagan had a “conversation” with UT Law Dean Doug Blaze at the University of Tennessee on Friday October 19th, 2012.

Here is an article from the Daily Caller.

And here is the quote from the “conversation”, or UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY, that had me rolling on the floor, laughing my a$$ off!!!

I’m not sure that I would have been President Obama’s nominee if I weren’t a woman and if he wasn’t as committed as he was to ensuring that there was diversity on the Supreme Court.”

Ya think???

P.S. But in all seriousness, if she is not sure, do you think she is still smart enough to be a Supreme Court Justice??  Just asking.

How is that “No increase in TAXES for people making less than $250,000″ working for YOU???

June 28, 2012

 

Remember when Presidential Candidate Obama said:

“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increases.  Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

Remember?  If not, go ahead and watch the following clip.  The relevant portion starts at about 30 seconds.  I have included more, so that when “they” claim that the comments were taken “out of context”, YOU will KNOW that the quote are NOT taken out of context and “they” are NOT TELLING THE TRUTH.

Now today we finally have the Supreme Court Ruling concerning ObamaCare.  Here is the headline:

“Supreme Court upholds Obamacare individual mandate as a tax!!”

Not only did Obama LIE, not only has he raised EVERYONE’s taxes (including the poor and middle class), but Obama has IMPLEMENTED one of the LARGEST TAX HIKES IN AMERICAN HISTORY!! 

To Mr. President, from Rep. Wilson:

“You LIE!!”

Just one more example of the LIES that come from Mr. Obama.

Is ObamaCare Constitutional???

January 31, 2011

Now the next chapter in the ObamaCare fiasco. 

Judge Rules Health Care Unconstitutional

This is the Federal Judge in Florida that was hearing the case brought by about half of the State AG’s.  Now it will go before the United States Supreme Court. 

The House of Representatives has voted to repeal the Law.  The fate of ObamaCare in the Legislative Branch now rests in the Senate, where Comrade Reid has vowed that repeal will not be voted on.  I suggest that the Republicans in the Senate should drag their feet on this.  Why?  You ask.  Because this case WILL be heard by the Supreme Court no matter what the Senate does.  If the Supreme Court rules that it IS unconstitutional, then ObamaCare, in its entirety, will be null and void.  Why? You ask.  Because either through stupidity, a mistake because it was rushed through the process, or a belief that it was so good that the Democrats did not want to have any chance of future changes by anyone; they left out the Severability Clause.  This means that if one small part of the law is unconstitutional, then the WHOLE law is unconstitutional.  Let the Supreme Court rule on this question.

If (and it is a big IF) the Supreme Court rules that it is not unconstitutional, then the Republicans can offer amendments, and force the Democrats to defend every aspect of the law.  If the Supreme Court rules that it is unconstitutional, then the Republicans do not need to accomplish anything to repeal the law.  The House Republicans need to start drafting a new Health Care Bill.

Is ObamaCare constitutional???

Is ObamaCare constitutional? 

That seems to be one of the most important questions being asked these days.  I am not a legal scholar, but neither were our Founding Fathers.   From the arguments I have seen, I would have to say not only no, but Hell NO!!  This is just my opinion.  At least one federal court, at this time, also feels that ObamaCare is unconstitutional.  I do know that this will go before the Supreme Court, unless it is repealed before then.  I do not feel that I have given the authority to any government to dictate what I HAVE to buy with my own money.  Not only that, but I will NEVER give that authority!!  However, I do have a proposal for the new Congress.  If the Supreme Court rules that it is unconstitutional, what should happen next?

Lets introduce a Bill that states: 

Should the Judicial Branch rule, including appeals, that any Law is unconstitutional, then 1) any Congressperson or Senator that voted FOR the Bill, and the President that signs the Bill into Law; shall forfeit all future compensation from the United States government, including any retirement compensation, any health benefits, any death benefits, any protection benefits, etc. 2)  Any current Member of Congress or current Senator or current President; shall be immediately expelled from their position.  3)  After being expelled from their positions, their new title will include Disgraced.  For example; the Disgraced Senator or the Disgraced Congressperson or the Disgraced President.  4)  If that person then runs for another position in the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch or the Judicial Branch and wins that position, the position will be uncompensated.

These people have Sworn an Oath (Senators, Congresspeople, President).

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Personally, I am no longer willing to solely wait for the judgement of God.  I feel that there needs to be a penalty for Breaking their Oath here and now! 

I do not think that anyone should be “testing” the limits of the Constitution.  Let me know what you think.
