Skip to comments.US SCOTUS Decision (10am) Open thread for Thursday June 21st, 2012
Posted on 06/21/2012 2:58:37 AM PDT by Perdogg
Today the court is handing down decisions, possibly in the Arizona Immigration Law case.
Make your Prediction on:
1. Az Immigration law
2a. Heathcare Mandate
2b. Heathcare Servability
3. Stolen Valor Act
Let congress do their job....the right way.
I suppose it will make Obama happy because it will be another diversion for Holder and the crap economny.
1. Look for health mandate to be struck down.
2. Look for AZ law to be upheild.
I predict no matter what the decisions are, ears will ignore them and dare someone to stop him from implementing them anyway.
It has become apparent that the Fed's approach is insufficient and immigrants are found in every nook and cranny of Arizona causing a burden upon the peoples of the state.
Arizona will win.
Do you think the entire HC law is struck down?
Bet he's got a fistfull of Executive Orders ready....And he's going to tell US to go to hell.
I predict that the media will tell lies and declare that all SCOTUS decisions will help Obama in his re-election attempt.
I’m prepared for a nasty surprise on health care. Not that they would vote and not have a majority in favor of repeal but rather a punt in order not to take any stand
HOWEVER,if businesses do move ahead and start hiring, it may change the unemployment numbers to Obama's advantage.
He waved his magic wand for the 800,000, so yeah, the sky's the limit for this usurper.
I think people are now inventing ways to be pessimistic. You statement defies logic since there is a minimum threshold for the SCOTUS to accept a case.
“Bet he’s got a fistfull of Executive Orders ready....And he’s going to tell US to go to hell”
It wlll be hard sense it Polls so low in favor of Obama care. Don't know anyone who ever ran on passing Obamacare
“You are not Caesar so stand down!”
Obama to the SCOTUS and everyone else:
It's gonna be another Goetterdaemmerung with THIS fascist tyrant—pray that most of the armed federal employees remember their oath to the US Constitution.
Really goin' out on a limb, huh? ;)
“I think people are now inventing ways to be pessimistic. You statement defies logic since there is a minimum threshold for the SCOTUS to accept a case.”
I don’t want to be pessimistic...I didn’t think Obama would win in the first place. :(
Healthcare decision will be issued on Monday.
That's a clear case if ever there was one, ClearCase_guy
So instead of pessimistic, you were just naive? lol
I hope he has them ready and I hope he uses them to go full Stalin.
Honestly, until people ‘feel the pain’, they will just keep ‘getting along’ and keep their heads down. I hope that he POs people to the point that they finaly say ENOUGH!. Because I just don’t believe that without their personal ox getting gored, whatever flavor of Ox that may be, that most will ever lift a finger to stop him.
I find it odd that they would not do it today since today is a “special day”.
nObamacare will be knocked down & AZ upheld.
My bigger concern is the retirement announcement of Ginsberg and/or Stephens. That’ll be a HUGE shiny object to distract from the withHolder issue.
Thanks for the thread Perdogg.Working from home today so I will have a chance to watch.
“So instead of pessimistic, you were just naive? lol”
I thought Hillary would win because of the Clinton machine, the female vote and her experience. No, I didn’t expect some fruitcake from Chicago would defeat established political veterans.
I woke up thinking about the unconscious, including liberals, this morning. I saw them all as the famous frogs in a huge pot. We (conservatives) either never jumped in the water or jumped out early on. Now we are seeing some of the rest wake up and do the same or try. They are not feeling any pain yet. For some only if he gets his hands on their 401K's will they finally wake up. It will be too late long before that.
Yeah but Obama was the real winner in Wisconsin don’t ya know?
Poll: Only a third of Americans favor Obama's health care law -
WASHINGTON Just a third of Americans back President Barack Obama's health care overhaul on which the Supreme Court is about to pass judgment, a new poll finds. But there is overwhelming support among both supporters and opponents for Congress and the president to begin work on a new bill if the high court strikes down the two-year-old law.
I hope Barry has an early tee time.
Each of the more political decisions will be decided along political lines since the liberals will not break rank and support the constitution.
Make your Prediction on:
5-3.....1. Az Immigration law
5-4.....2a. Heathcare Mandate
5-4.....2b. Heathcare Servability
6-3.....3. Stolen Valor Act
Polls mean nothing. The Kenyan only needs the votes of five Black-robed Priests. Our voice means not a thing.
6-3 Holder is hauled off to jail
5-4 Obama is hauled off to jail
Would not surprise me if that happens. This could be why there is a delay, the Supremes are getting ready to strike the law down, and are working out an effort to do a “getting out of dodge” security-related effort in case of last minute protests by Obama-supporters.
Health Care Mandate -- Upheld
Health Care Serverability -- Moot point
Stolen Valor -- Struck Down
Despite all reason and logic, Conservatism strikes out.
The only thing congress can do is begin impeachment for failing to protect the constitution and illegal overeach..
so far all are afraid...we will see.
possible defund the government agencies in questions, DOJ, EPA etc...
1. Az Immigration law, 2a. Heathcare Mandate, & 2b. Heathcare Servability. After yesterday’s events, total chaos in the MSM & among Lefties in general.
“Love the smell of napalm in the morning”
I suppose it will make Obama happy because it will be another diversion for Holder and the crap economny......I don’t know about Murdergate but, he will see the economy jump about 20 points if the fershitty mess is destroyed because business will have some idea where to turn and use the money they been stashin’ to expand.
Seriously? You think the mandate and law will be upheld? I say they are both gone.
It is pretty clear that Obama is going to run against the SCOTUS in the upcoming election. I think that is why he claimed Executive Privilege on F&F — just to pick another fight with the Justices.
Of course, his tongue lashing of the SCOTUS will not serve him well, but he will blame the court for holding back Hope and Change.
Did you read his tagline? “Nabob of Negativity”
I’ll join in your cynicism. They wouldn’t be my hope or predictions but as things are? I can see it happening that way.
Stolen Valor Today. Immigration next Monday. Health Care next Thursday.
Given the screwwy nature of our political world, I’ll predict the most convoluted, illogical outcome possible:
5-4 to strike down Az Immigration
5-4 to strike down Individual Mandate
5-4 to uphold the rest of Obamacare
Respectfully disagree. Sotomayor, Kaga, and Ginsberg ALL will never give up liberalism and bias against freedom.
My guess is that Kennedy is the deciding factor in a 5-4 decision on everything.
I predict that no matter what the Supreme Court decides Obama will continue to act as if he alone is the only legitimate branch of government.
1. Az Immigration law - Upheld
2a. Heathcare Mandate - Overturned
2b. Heathcare Severability - It is NOT severable, as they took specific action to omit this provision. It would not have passed without taking this step.
3. Stolen Valor Act - upheld
I think Monday is the last day.
Not to worry.
Obama will be so focused on salvaging Obamacare, it will remain a threat and a battle line through the election.
