Posted on 07/03/2012 10:03:27 PM PDT by No One Special
As promised, Romney has folded on ObamaCare too, although had I wagered money on the timing, I would have thought that he would have lasted at least a week. But apparently the revenue curve from stupid, imbecilic suckers giving Romney money in the wake of the SCOTUS decision fell off hard enough that the Romney people felt that it served no more purpose to perpetuate the repeal charade.
Here's the link.
I hope every single one of you who gave that forked-tongued jackass money feel the full shame and embarrassment of your own gullibility and obtuseness. This slackjawed sentimentalism WILL BE THE DEATH OF ALL OF US. Your rah-rah loyalty to con-artists who wrap themselves in platitudes so that you can have a "team" that makes you feel good about yourself isn't noble or admirable. It is nauseating and disgusting. It is truly sickening to see people elevate false sentiment over truth - all for the sake of a truly shallow SOCIAL EXPERIENCE.
Ignorance is one thing. Abject stupidity in the face of mountains of pounding evidence is another.
-Romney wrote and implemented ObamaCare's template in Massachusetts.
-RomneyCare destroyed the Massachusetts economy. Romney refuses to this day to acknowledge that there is anything wrong with RomneyCare, or the economic damage it had done and continues to do to Massachusetts.
-Romney's top aides and inner circle were frequent visitors to the White House and were instrumental in the drafting of ObamaCare in 2009.
-Romney has VOCIFERICOUSLY defended the concept of the mandate that people must, as a condition of their very existence, purchase a specific commodity.
-RomneyCare funds abortion with a mere $50 co-pay and forces all people under its control to pay for contraception and sterilization, including the Church in Massachusetts. The reason you never heard anything about this is because Archbishop Sean O'Malley is a slack-jawed idiot who is a Marxist and, like most bishops today, doesn't actually believe in Catholicism. He's just a narcissistic, politicking little shell of a man who is desperate for worldly approval - particularly from other men. Sad but true. Someone needs to say this.
So, not only has O'Malley not complained about the horrors of RomneyCare, but he embraces it and supports ObamaCare. And, as a result, he still gets invited to all of the fancy parties with all of the rich, powerful men whose approval his entire existence revolves around and self-esteem depends upon. And I'm sure that he also lives in complete terror of having some rich, powerful man like Mitt Romney come up to him at a party, smile, lean in, and ask, "You don't really believe that a piece of bread turns into God, do you?" The vast majority of bishops today are embarrassed and humiliated by the Eucharist. Hence the entire problem. It all really does come down to that, whether you understand that or not. Someone has to say it.
-Mitt Romney will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The Congress will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The only way to get rid of ObamaCare is a junta or civil war and the establishment of the Second American Republic. The First American Republic is dead, and it is never, ever coming back.
I will not be celebrating Independence Day tomorrow, because to do so would be utterly hypocritical and a lie. The First Republic is dead, and to pretend that it isn't only feeds and enables the usurpers and tyrants who are desecrating its corpse in order to give themselves the appearance of legitimacy. If I live to see the establishment of the Second American Republic, THAT date will I observe.
The Black American Flag, flown in distress, is my flag now.
And so you agree with Justice Roberts?
As John Roberts proved this week, it no longer matters who we vote for or who gets elected. They all wind up screwing us in the end.
A pox on all their houses as far as I am concerned.
The reason you never heard anything about this is because Archbishop Sean O’Malley is a slack-jawed idiot who is a Marxist and, like most bishops today, doesn’t actually believe in Catholicism. He’s just a narcissistic, politicking little shell of a man who is desperate for worldly approval - particularly from other men. Sad but true. Someone needs to say this.
***My last name is O’Malley and this guy is a disgrace to my name. I wish there was a way to shake some sense into him.
I agree it is a tax and I agree it is unconstitutional and I agree that Obama and the Democrats lied when they said it wasn’t a tax.
Agree with tyrants? No.
Our Joan of Arc!
It's not a matter of agreeing with Justice Roberts.
It's a matter of what the SCOTUS decides that makes it reality.
We may not agree that abortion is a right but it is the law. An immoral law yes but it's the law of the nation.
If we minimize the Roe vs Wade down to agreeing or disagreeing with those particular judges at the time how does that help us change it?
One does not have to agree with Justice Roberts to agree that ObamaCare has won.
Even Justice Thomas?
Remember, Roberts needed to pay Obama back for the Amnesty executive order which allows children brought to the US illegally to stay in the United States. Obama's Amnesty for children brought here illegally does not only cover those children here from Mexico.
Mitt Romney will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The Congress will never, ever repeal ObamaCare.”
From today’s vantage point, I fear this is correct.
Dear God, please show me that I and others who feel this way are completely wrong.
Im not finding where Romney is supposed to have changed his position of repealing obomacare.
Santorum would have been better to bring the hammer down on Obamascam. Mittens is compromised on the topic. What a conundrum.
Maybe it's just that we haven't thrown enough of them out at one time to force a change.
How about Romney making it materially harder to overturn Obamacare?
If Romney contends that Obamacare does not impose a tax, then it will take 60 votes in the Senate to get past a Democratic filibuster. Whereas if Romney agrees that Obamacare does impose a tax, then it will only take 50 votes plus the vote of the Vice President to overturn Obamacare.
He used tortured logic and the result is the institutionalization of tyranny. Tyranny is the very thing the Constitution was designed to stand as a bulwark against. The final nail in the Constitution is set by Roberts.
How will he be remembered?
The DemonRats screw us with a power drill. The RINO’s screw us one gentle turn at a time.
Tragedy is a better fit IMO.
Keep the Bishop’s feet to the fire and he will fold his magic underwear! Second, he cannot replace OBummercare with Magicunderwearcare because POTUSes don’t legislate, so there!
We are pissed and will remain pissed. This legislation must go! That’s the bottom line of the silver lining!
And all without a kiss or a back rub.
But Romney cannot easily argue that as a tax it is unconstitutional. I agree that it is. But Roberts has ruled otherwise. In the face of that, it is probably better to make Obama call it a tax to claim constitutionality for it, or else, if a penalty, to say it is unconstitutional. Romney can ask him in debate “Which is it? Is it a tax, or is it unconstitutional?” And if Obama points to Massachussets, Romney will bring up the 10th Amendment to the professor of constitutional law. I understand where you are coming from, but there are many ways to play the game of chess.
You are not wrong.
Good grief. Obummer was never a “professor” or even an “assistant professor”!
LOL, sorry, true enough, but I don’t want to use the word “teacher” because it is near and dear to me. I am one.
Romney did speak out .. . June 28, 2012 and probably more since then. Not that I love Romney, I don’t, but it’s not fair to say that he hasn’t addressed the issue.
“As you might imagine I disagree with the Supreme Courts decision, and I agree with the dissent, what the court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of t he United States, and that is I will act to repel Obama Care. Lets be clear about what the court did and did not do. The court said that Obama care does not violate the Constitution. What they did not do was say Obama-care was a good law or its good policy, Obama care is bad policy yesterday, its bad policy today.”
You are so right. I never planned to vote for Romney. Now I may just not vote.
I hope that he has the balls to ask him just that.
I'm definitely not a Romney fan, but I agree with him on this. The mandate is not a tax (which congress has the Constitutional right to impose) it is a penalty for not purchasing a service (which congress does not have the Constitutional right to impose).
While the Republican party may think that they'll get more mileage out of the "largest Tax hike in history" meme than with the "un-Constitutional mandate" meme with the uninformed, voting public, the facts are the facts.
Obviously, there is no place in the First American Republic anymore, for conservatives. We cannot support such malfeasance. It is morally wrong to continue supporting them. That much is true. Now, our goal should be to either rid the Criminally Insane from the reigns of power, or to break away cleanly and form the Second American Republics. In essence the United States of New America.
Now one must come up with a plan that has a chance of success. It would be much safer to rise up, while Romney was the President. He wont mind cracking down on a secession movement or a possible revolution, he will however be somewhat constrained by the fact that the people making their move, actually voted for him. Obama would have no such restraints and leftist would actually cheer their fellow conservative Americans being shot down in the street. Right now they are cheering Obama/Hillary as they systematically destroy entire nation states (Libya, Egypt, Syria).
That is a good way to put it.
In some ways, I think I’d rather just get it over with. The whole thing needs to collapse in order to have any hope of being rebuilt.
Might as well start now.
Perhaps this is why the media selected Romney. It’s all choreographed. McCain 2008, the sequel.
How will he be remembered?
As a sheep in sheep's clothing [Sir Winston quote]. For those of you in Rio Linda, a wuss!
He got it right the first time. But then he changed sides and reworked his opinion so that he would be liked by the Beltway intelligentsia.
He should resign.
I hate to realize it, but this stuff started with the Constitution itself, if I understand correctly.
1.The folks running the Convention decided to close all the windows despite intense heat just so folks outside would not hear what was being discussed.
2. James Madison took detailed notes of the debates at the Convention, but refused to publish his notes during his lifetime to protect the names of those with opinions that might prove unpopular with the people.
The ruling class was alive and well behind closed doors even back then.
“There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.” Daniel Webster.
Roberts will be remembered by how the history books tell his story. The question is: Who will win and therefore, who will write the history books.
Well said. Exactly why I asked the question.
I have never been so pessimistic about our Republic being saved as I have since this unimaginable ruling.
It has left me distressed like no other time in my life. The elites in D.C. of both parties and of all three branches of government have been on a relentless path of turning our Republic into a socialist H*ll.
Jefferson warned that true tyranny will rise from the Judiciary. In the past 100 years most Judicial rulings have tended to give more power to the Federal government.
Over the past 80 years it has only been Reagan who nudged our Republic back towards Liberty. Sadly it was only a short lived move.
ALL other Presidents have been statistd of varying degrees.
The left's domination of our education institutions has guaranteed that most citizens are taught to be subservient to the State, taught to see the government as a necessary good.
The left is collection of emotion driven, envy driven narcissists.
Almost all the leftists in the media, in higher institutions of education, and in government have extremely evil and sadistic hearts. Their lusts for power and control of others knows no bounds.
Their insane drive to control all aspects of our lives never rests.
For those of us who cherish Liberty we are left with the likes of Boehner and McConnell to lead the effort. To top it off we have someone on our side running for President who has a solid record in office that illustrates his innate belief that an activist government is a good government.
No matter, we must make it a priority to defeat Obama and as many Statists as possible, as soon as possible.
We are truly living in nightmarish times. I remember the optimism of Reagan, the fantastic growing economy the general happiness of the people. The only ones miserable in the 80's were the insane left.
Now, 30 years later everyone is miserable. Conservatives are upset because they see their Republic being destroyed. The left is still miserable and is more rabid than ever in their lust for absolute power.
One thing is for certain. We are truly accelerating towards the end game. I pray that God will be on the side of those seek to do what is right.
A better plan might be to get on God's side!
Who do you think God would vote for? Certainly not for evil or the lessor thereof...
God does not “vote”, nor is he “on” a person’s side.
We try to understand what God requires of us, and do His will.
And yes, God DOES support the lesser of two evils. What does that mean?
It means that NO HUMAN is PERFECT, and any leader God allows us to have is his choice for us now.
In other words, we got what we deserved when we got Obama. Oh, how I hope we have learned our lesson. Or do we have to get another leader that makes us suffer?
It’s OUR choice.
LOL, sorry, true enough, but I dont want to use the word teacher because it is near and dear to me. I am one.
How about “guest speaker”? I think that’s more along the line of it.
Maybe it's late?
This is not true and has never been true.
0bamacare was passed via a budget reconciliation gimmick which allowed the 'rats to subvert the normal process, and this left them open to the same mechanism for repeal. The Majority ACA opinion has NO BEARING on the rules of the Senate: we NEVER needed 60 votes.
Mr. RomneyCARE WANTS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE.
Like DEATH PANELS, RomneyCARE is Myths greatest
DEATH PANELS will be the “gem” in the throne of the
GOPe this year.
Are you saying that Robert's adopted children were brought here illegally? (I'm not arguing with you... I truly do not know anything about it, only heard today that he had two adopted children)
Abject stupidity in the face of mountains of pounding evidence is another. You prove your point about yourself.
Don't do that.
Third-party, if you can find one that doesn't make you gag, write-in if you have to, but do whatever it takes to put another entry in the "Other" column.
Woe, sorry for the accident of your heritage, the O’Malleys didn’t deserve it. But you’ve also got the governor of Maryland, O’Malice himself. If it’s any consolation, the former owner of the Dodgers, Walter, was a grand old man I hear.
