Gerald Ford gave us John Paul Stevens. Ronald Reagan gave us Sandra Day O’Connor. George Bush 41 gave us David Souter. George Bush 43 gave us John Roberts. A short retrospective of the more conservative candidate leaving us with the sick disappointed feeling of ultimate betrayal with a crucial decision from the Supreme Court. Summing up my thoughts about Thursday’s decision has been difficult. I’ll give it a shot anyhow.
First, the next time someone from what our side claims itself to be is nominated, the discussion had better include whether or not said nominee is a person possessing a little thing called integrity, has a back bone which will stand up to the pressures of a relentless and unscrupulous political left, or if said nominee is in reality a jellyfish, such as is the case apparently of one John Roberts, our current Supreme Court’s Chief Justice. As a matter of fact, his new nick name on my personal blog will henceforth be John, “Jellyfish,” Roberts.
For those of you who have found a silver lining in the decision which somehow includes the Jellyfish’s opining that the Commerce Clause has indeed been tortured out of all recognizable sanity for some sort of Pyrrhic victory, that the Jellyfish was really somehow, “preserving the good standing of the court,” while limiting the naked power grab by a federal behemoth which regards us mere mortal citizens as little pieces of filth to be tweaked into compliance with their caviar dreams and jet set wishes, I have this to say. You are full of baloney. This merely serves as a further blue print on how the self anointed are to proceed with each future erosion of their unfettered march to remove our individual freedoms. Lie all you want when pitching your new intrusions into private lives, just be sure to call it a tax, and if you don’t, it’s all good, the Jellyfish will find suitable language to set your growing behemoth straight.
How on Earth did we ever allow the group of people known as lawyers to become the self anointed guardians of how the Constitution was to be interpreted anyhow? As far as I know, the document was written for the benefit of every American Citizen, and lawyers can spin anything to the point of Twilight Zone material. We let them take charge of this one simple task, and now our Constitution has been reduced in meaning to nothing more than an eloquent statement that tells us that if they want to, our Legislators and President can do anything to us that they wish, as long as they word it properly. The Jellyfish you see has just decided that there are absolutely no restrictions upon our federal government and its dealings with we the people. They can do anything to us that they wish to do, and you can bet your bottom dollar, if you still have it, that at some point in the future, they will.
I have read some reports that the Jellyfish caved into some pressure from the press clippings that he’d been reading lately. If that’s so, (and I realize that those stories are without source, verification, and based solely on the flimsiest of conjecture, but still represent the best explanation to date of why such a perversion in judicial decision making seemed like a good idea to the Jellyfish,) what a shame it is indeed. He has turned the Highest court into the whipping boy and tool of those people who wish to destroy our nation. All is not lost however, and we can still reverse this damage. The Jellyfish has still not caved to the pressure to suspend future elections in order to keep the current group of Marxist representatives from America’s minority in place. (Governor Beverly Perdue (D), North Carolina, has indeed made the previous proposal as a means to mitigating the economic crisis.)
We have an election coming up in November of this year which is crucial, as they will be for as long as the Supreme Court includes the likes of the Jellyfish, who has now aligned himself with a woman who believes that our Constitution should be scrapped entirely. (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the nine people tasked with interpreting our Constitution, took the extraordinary step of traveling to lawless Egypt, and advised them to not use our Constitution as a model for their own. She told them that the document went too far in limiting the federal government’s authority over its citizenry, which means us. That, by the way was the entire point.)
Those of you by the way who made protest votes or simply didn’t vote in 2008, I blame you every bit as much as those idiots who voted for Barack Obama. You were the goofy few running around proclaiming that it really doesn’t matter who is in charge anyhow, and how has that worked out for you so far? In his wildest nightmares filled with endless V.C. torturing him if he didn’t inflict us with society killing legislation, John McCain could not have come up with Zerocare and Dodd/Frank. We all need to dig in, work hard, and make certain that we send not only Mitt Romney, but even GOP Dog Catchers on to victory in order to have any shot to roll back the damage done to our society.
There are two major silver linings in all of this though. Maybe for the first time since the Carter Presidency, the American People seem to realize that elections have consequences. The mobilization of my brethren Tea Partiers and such has been astounding. Not only has Mitt Romney received an astounding boon for his cash raising efforts, but the down ticket folks have also been blowing the doors off of their fund raising results. While team Zero has been keeping a chipper face, claiming that they have received a boost from the decision, their actions speak otherwise. There is a recording floating around of Barack Obama whining to Union Leaders that their lack of forthcoming financing will cause him the election, and the Obama Chief of Staff has declared the entire debate over, even though we all know that it will be a major GOP campaign platform issue. Small wonder that Jack Lew wishes to move on from this issue. In 2010, the promise to repeal Obamacare netted the GOP 63 House Seats, 7 Senate Seats, 11 Governor’s Mansions, and a cool 700 State Legislature Seats.
The second silver lining is that the individual states have the ability to opt out of the Medicare Penalty inflicted by non participation in the double counting scheme. That is to say, one major source of supposed funding was the Obamacare direction that states utilize the bulk of their Medicare funding for Obamacare instead, and make up the difference themselves. That won’t happen now, and which Governor in his or her right mind will pass up the opportunity to drop that political hot potato? The funding for this nonsense will cause major league budgetary problems much sooner than expected, even if it survives November’s cease and desist order.
Please enjoy a couple of videos. The first is Bill Whittle’s take on the decision, and well worth 5 minutes of your time. The second is Jack Lew telling us a tax is in fact not a tax when it comes to what people should be told during the campaign season, or something. He at least admits that lawyers are prone to lying flat out in order to twist the Constitution to fit their wishes.
