The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
We LOVE because he first LOVED us. 1 John 4:19
How genius were our Founding Fathers that they would reach up from their graves once again and find Obozocare fell far short of the basic freedoms they had ensured and our Supreme Court was not going along with it. The incredible document they wrote 250 years ago was far more impressive than the 2500 piece of health slavery which was written by the party of tyranny and only the most radical minority was denying that truth. If we dodge this nationalized dictate we can thank a few legal stalwarts and a few dozen historic giants who wrote one of truly monumental documents ever produced.
This week was a legal masterpiece as this piece of legal tripe was exposed for the shoddy patchwork the Repubs said it was from the beginning. They really wanted a single payer plan where the gummit would be your caregiver from cradle to grave but the Tea Party helped Scott Brown replace dead Ted so they could only shove their half finished bill back through Nazi Pelosis House leaving huge gaping holes that are proving illegal and an obvious assault on freedom.
The only people who are shocked and surprised by this is the 15% who are braindead commies in the liberal establishment. These elitists who believe the gummit can do no wrong and capitalism can do no right are stunned how easily the opposition destroyed all of their arguments. When you have the Justices laughing at your lawyer as to what else you can mandate people buy and the best defense you can come up with is food is different than insurance makes you and your bill a laughingstock if it wasnt so terrifying. How can this many Americans be willing to literally turn over their entire lives to a Death Panel who will decide if you pass the life matrix and deserve that treatment you need to survive rather than their doctor? How can this many people look at something as corrupt as DC and allow them to decide who lives and dies? Even the mafia has a code of honor, unlike politicians and gummit bureaucrats?
The argument became so absurd at the SC the Justices began making fun of the pretzels the obama lawyer was shaping to keep from saying mandate fines or penalties for non-compliance. He continually called the fines which range up to $250,000 per insured for not carrying the proper insurance that Breyer finally stopped him and said, why do you keep calling penalties taxes? He responded with penalty tax so he could keep the charade that this is a tax and budget item controlled by congress when it is premiums and penalties to dictate how Americans live their lives.
The other knee slapper is when the Justices asked if someone is fined and jailed for not carrying the proper insurance would they be committing a federal crime and if someone was asked if they would have to answer yes they had. The White House lawyer couldnt even answer that and simply gave an opinion that they wouldnt but didnt know. The Justice seemed to know the answer was yes and if not carrying the proper insurance or purchasing the proper insurance after the employer is fined and jailed, would this federal crime be a misdemeanor or a felony? The question is, does this federal healthcare dictate make you more or less free? This should spine shiver any freedom loving American right down to their core.
For Barak Hussain Obama, this was going to bring America and capitalism to its knees. If his bill was allowed to stand it would destroy the insurance companies within three to five years and force America into a nationalized insurance and healthcare. The collapse of the insurance industry would force every American onto Medicare or Medicaid and eventually into a soviet style hospital system. This is who they are and what they want for America for two reasons. One, they truly believe that they can run a communist system better than a capitalist economy and second America deserves to be punished for slavery and every other crime against humanity. If they punish America they are better people than those who dont want to punish it so they are superior and better people, almost; Europeans. Obamacare is our punishment as well as the end of capitalism.
As the Justices stated, this bill would fundamentally change this country and how it does business. There would no longer be a separation of gummit and business, the Congress could literally mandate any good or service and control it completely. When it comes to healthcare they will not only force you to buy their insurance from companies who cant charge enough premium to stay in business but will mandate how much they will pay out so the eventual bankruptcy of 250 year old companies is guaranteed. They will be replaced by District of Corruption bureaucrats who will design benefit and surgical matrixes to decide who and what receives treatment and who doesnt. You can bet the abortions will not only be allowed but required for defective babies and ignoring that dictate would be a felony. Soon would be followed by number of children per family.
Fortunately by the tone of the Justices questions it sounds like the entire bill will be rejected and sent back to Congress where it will die a slow and painful death. The brilliant Justice Scalia indicated with his quip that parts couldnt be saved while the mandate found unconstitutional since going through the tedious 2500 page document would break the 8th Amendment towards cruel and unusual punishment. He let the obamedia know that the court is not designed to write law, that is the Congress job and this was a job poorly done.
So once again, the hands of our Founding Fathers have reached up to protect this Country they loved so much. This shows the true genius of these men how they could write such a document that could last for this length of time to protect the individuals freedom from a power thirsty gummit wanting to enslave its people. This handful of men who have become giants of history were truly men of honor who did not desire power for themselves, they simply loved freedom and wanted to invent a country that could enjoy its own freedom. They wanted the people to have the power and move away from the Monarchies of Europe and install a Representative Republic where ideally those Representatives and President would have the same vision they had. When they didnt and attempted to institute dictates and mandates they could be struck down by a Supreme Court to protect those peoples rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. In November those hands are going to reach up and finish the job this Supreme Court has begun.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Good morning AB, All....
....as I type this am sending my daughter and granddaughter on their way back home. They stayed over this past Friday and Saturday nights, daughter mowed my lawn, helped me move stuff, as adult children do for their ageing parents from time to time.
...We went shopping and I bought them both some Easter clothes, especially my daughter, who could be a fine subject on “What Not to Wear” though understand, I do love her.
She thoroughly believes that Trayvon Martin was shot for nothing else but being black. I did everything to change her mind but she stood her ground. “Mom, you’re not going to convince me of anything else but that George Zimmerman was a nut doing what he shouldn’t a been doing. What’s he doing out and about and looking for bad guys.”
I was shocked and asked her when it became illegal to go looking around your neighborhood that all is at peace and how it ought to be, that there are neighborhood watch programs across the fruited plains, that we have our own impromptu and loose neighborhood watch program right here in my block. She was so taken aback at the notion that people are doing something so darn politically incorrect as to be watching for evil around them that might harm them and theirs.
She’s not a stupid girl, folks. But she’s a busy Mom running hither and yon, her cats just had kittens, kid is on Easter vacation next week, mother-in-law just lost her husband of 48 years, baby shower for sister-in-law coming up next week....busy....time to quickly watch the news.
She saw that video on Huffington Post that she sad had Zimmerman without a single scratch on him....she KNOWS that Trayvon, that cute little kid which is the only picture she saw of him, was killed just for being black.
Folks, this is how they get out there and while the truth is still putting its pants on the lies multiply and spread across the planet.
This is how they win the debate. The make up fiction and soon we are all arguing THEIR version of events.
JUst a brilliant and eloquent post!!!!You articulated in a short summary what meandering pundits and even astute WSJ writers went around and around and into the weeds with!
The WSJ should hire you IMMEDIATELY!(unless of course you DO write for hefty journals and are under cover here..ha.)
Great post...sums it up and that is what I hear too from vey smart people.
then I have to ‘walk back’ the realities of the story and dis assemble the lies one by one.Even with ‘conservatives”.
But I will feel much more confident after the final votes are released and the opinions published. Until then, there is too much that can go wrong. A Justice may die or change his mind (note: I didn't write write "her") or other things may happen.
That our republic hangs in the balance with so much at stake and with the opinions of one or two men as all that stands between us and total disaster is truly frightening.
Says it all.
Okay. I’ll watch New Gingrich and see what he has to say.
'Get out' says Wallace using RINO Ryan and ex-Mormon Rubio.
Mr. Santorum correctly says, "Romney is not even
half way to the number (required)".
CONSERVATIVES WILL WORK AGAINST ROMNEY AND THE GOP IF THEY ARE ONE.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
Wallace worries that Santorum might hurt Romney as Santorum continues to pound away at Romney, criticizing his credentials, etc.
Santorum respond that, if he thinks he is being pounded now, wait until he sees what Obama would release on him, if he were the nominee.
Santorum continued — Romney is running on negatives, not on a positive vision for the party or the Nation.
Wallace also berates Mr. Santorum for discussing Mr. Romney's flipflopping positions.
The liar Wallace then also states Romney has not been 'negative'.
What utter nonsense. FOX "News" has no shame.
THE REAL DEAL:
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
She needs to get the idea of color as "cause and effect" in the proper perspective.
If Zimmerman wanted to shoot the kid...he just would have shot him...no call, no info....and walked away.
Chuckie time on MTP. I’m soooooo impressed. Two people have to sit in for what’s his name, Savanah and Scarborough. What a waste of time.
Santorum is not impressing me one bit. He’s trying to defend his standing in race. This is a perfect time to rip into obammma, but he’s just answering stupid questions from Savanah. Today is a perfect time to use the failures of the administration, but he’s sounds like some high school kid running for class president.
RomneyPIMP Chris Wallace repeats a DEMAND
again that Mr. Santorum drop out.
Wallace and FOX “News” are NOTHING
but Romney- and BAIN-paid PR Reps and flacks for Romney.
Wallace brings up one of the ole litmus test issues — abortion.
[Abortion — the goalpost that has been moved all over the field by the Libs during the last 40 years.]
Well, you told her the other facts; the truth, and she chooses not to believe you.
Kids can be like that. The more you counter them, the more they oppose you.
All you can do is keep at it. At least now she knows there’s another side.
RomneyPIMP Chris Wallace tries over and over
to make a deal with Mr. Santorum to get him to pull out after the Penn. primary.
Wallace (Anchor Wife of Milt) is shameless
and has devoted the ENTIRE SESSION to attacking
Mr. Santorum and endless revisiting the Romney/FOX demand
that he get out of the way of their loser-RINO Milt.
Today is Palm Sunday.
Hosanna in the Highest!
Thanks. Looks like a Santorum morning.
I think and hope that this Trayvon thing will die down because there is no information coming out.
I’ve been on so many threads and I think we now know all there is to know until there is a trial or some kind of official inquiry.
I don’t argue politics with my adult children. My daughter is (thankfully) very conservative although married to something of a liberal and my son is kinda liberal, though he does have some sense.
Brilliant as usual bray.FR is lucky to have your wisdom here week after week.The Marxist dream of uniting 16% of the US economy so that fully 50% of all spending would be govt. oriented and communism a near reality in the US may quickly be fading.
Hot air has a really good piece using Bob (I’m’ a fable writer) Schrum’s recent piece on how zero will “benefit” form the dissolution of obamcare. Its simply priceless more dem fables.
Its here if you care.
I was particularly enjoying the fact that the justices were laughing at the Solicitor General, and all he could do was go "hahmina hahmina hahmina".
"Do you really expect us to read all 2700 pages of this bill?"
Dean basically argues that Romney is too rich to know what the commoners need.
[Sort of like we did against Kerry and Mrs. Ketsup]
Yup. Don’t forget FDR. A real working class stiff, him.
Or JFK. Such a poor boy; family barely kept food on the table.
Have a blessed Palm Sunday, Alas!
Senator Ron Johnson has endorsed Mitt Romney on Meet the Press.
I will check in briefly next Sunday. I am looking forward to Holy Week.
Thanks hippie, I really liked that one too, and no I write for this thread.
Rick was great on Fox. It has come down to him and Mitt, I love Newt but he is not getting the women’s vote and Rick is.
If I were rich enough to buy a new car I wouldn’t. Not a penny for the greedy union thugs and the excise taxes.
I would however, hire some All-American pro-builder like Chip Foose to build me one completely to my liking.
On March 26 a white student was killed in his dormitory at Mississippi State by three blacks. Where’s the outrage? Where are the protests? Where’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Where’s Obama’s comment on the tragedy of this incident?
An armchair psychologist once told me this. Allow me to pass it on, garbled though it may be.
A strong personality is likely to beget a strong personality. But SP 2 cannot express itself in the shadow of SP 1, except by distinguishing itself sharply. Thus we find children in contrast to parents, and younger siblings in contrast to older siblings. Before they build their external fortresses, they build their interior ones.
Trust that when your daughter grows up (age 50 perhaps) she will have found not only the wisdom, but the self-confidence to come around to your way of thinking. :)
Fortunately for us here in Floriduhhhh we do have one of the finest state policing organizations anywhere in the country aka The FDLE—Florida Department of Law Enforcement. They an elite group made up of law enforcement professionals. Only the top of the top are accepted from other Florida law enforcement agencies both sheriffs and city depts. across the state and the best of the best USA wide. If the FDLE is running the investigation instead of the FBI,I really don’t know, we are in good hands. The country is in good hands. If the politicats at the FBI are running it anything can happen.
Williams says it is tragic that someone would “kill this little boy.”
[From what I heard and read, he was hardly a ‘little boy’. Yet, the media showing ‘old’ pix of little Trayvon, etc, are implanting the impression that Trayvon was just a widdle kid walking across the lawn with a container of tea and a bag of Skittles.]
She’s just being a good liberal, it is her religion. She believes America is racist and this just proves it so her stand makes her non racist as opposed to you and the rest of America.
It also goes to her anti-gun and anti-vigilante beliefs. You will not convince the braindead but many are starting to understand the ugly truth of the liberal media lies. Check the polls and you will see a huge shift towards Zimmerman acting in self defense.
Pray for America
While that’s more than true, does Ronald Reagan impress you as the kind of patriot who would sit on his thumbs,not vote and complain constantly, if he didn’t get the candidate of his choice?
Written by coach collins...
When they heard the name George Zimmerman of Florida the Left immediately thought they had an eighty year old retired Jewish Democrat accountant originally from Queens New York. They thought maybe George Zimmerman was a runaway from the Democrats Jewish plantation (Bob Dylans real name is Zimmerman after all) who had gone NRA gun toting Republican TEA partier on them.
They were wrong.
George Zimmerman is a 28 year old self identified brown skinned Hispanic Democrat who they wish was an NRA member. He tutors Black children in his home and is not a TEA partier.
They looked at the picture of Trayvon Martin and fooled themselves into believing he was an angelic youth headed for Harvard someday. Instead they got a budding thug who had a series of scrapes with authorities that included possession of burglary tools and drug possession.
They thought they could find evidence that Zimmerman was on top of Martin punching him and calling him the N word. Instead they have an eye witness backing up Zimmermans claim of self defense and the N charge is just a dream.
They thought his neighbors would tell reporters Zimmerman hated Blacks. Instead they have a Black character witness for Zimmerman and his Black friends and family.
They thought they would have a White Police Chief who would kiss their feet to keep peace and his job. They lost that on day two. They now have Black Chief so that angle is gone.
They thought they would have two justifiably shell shocked parents who would do whatever they were told. Instead they got a pair of opportunists who have even less shame than would be Puppet Masters Sharpton and Jackson. They have copyrighted their sons name and quit their jobs to promote the sale of Trayvon merchandise.
They thought they could bring in the Black Panthers to scare White people then go away. Instead they got the Panthers putting a bounty on Zimmerman and threatening to burn down Detroit.
They thought Zimmerman would be living in a Lilly White gated fortress that screamed Minorities keep out. Instead they got a community that is more than half non White.
They thought they could get Black celebrities to jump in and add strength and lust to their circus of lies. Instead they got a dimwitted Spike Lee tweeting a wrong address for the lynch mob to descend upon ,and Lee is now on his way to a nasty losing lawsuit.
They thought they could get a bunch of Black high school kids to peacefully march to protest what had happened to Brother Trayvon. What they got was a pack of wilding animals who ransacked a Walgreens after their march.
Now they are all so eager to wear hoodies to show they are down for the struggle. Do you want to bet the hoodies end up being made in non union sweatshops in some third world country?
This is too rich.
Poor Joe has logged in so many hours at MSNBC he doesn't know who he is or what he is anymore.
Cheers to Juan, Where is the outrage of the the black carnage which 90% being Black on Black? Where are those marches or the marches on the schools that are failing Blacks leading to 40% unemployment? Good rant Juan!
Great job Diogenesis! You are doing more to help obama get reelected than anyone I know! Way to go,get down and dirty on
Romney, that’s the way to help the country in its time of need!!
Be sure and check out # 132 which shows what tea and skittles are in drug lingo.....
I totally agree but certain segments of the population are determined to make this something it is not, with help, I might add, from the president, who once again has made an idiot of himself.
Exactly you got to the core altura. Zero could care less about the death of a young black teenager only the political value. Once America begins to realize who this guy,Ozero, really is we will win, they will lose.
