  • The Other Pending Case against Our Dictator (Vanity)

    Good news that the House stood strong on the DHS bill. We'll see what happens next - the fight is just beginning. While no small issue, there is one even more important. That is, the lawsuit of 36 States against the ACA regarding subsidies for States who didn't set up their own exchanges. It specifically says in Obamacare that their citizens will NOT receive subsidies. This will determine if our Supreme Court is just or just us on our own. Justice Roberts is going to have to do back flips to sustain such an unambiguous clause.

    While it's now established law that the Fedgov can dictate to American citizens to purchase products/services they don't want OR suffer an additional tax, there was some curtailment to the ever over-reaching "commerce clause". That's a good thing. It's been abused for decades but this decision gives the States some leeway. As I see it, our only hope is that enough States get together and NULLIFY this tax/mandate decision. Then what would the current/future Executive Branch do? Send in the military to enforce against the States? Not likely. Even Obambi doesn't have the nerve to try that and force a...

Along with TV, movies, print, education institutions, parades, et al, that promote the GLBT life styles, I am fed up. We are way beyond them wanting tolerance. Now we are being indoctrinated to accept such as a normal lifestyle and possibly change our desires to their perverted proclivities.

    I am so sick of the term "fair share" that obama and his socialist ilk keep promoting. FAIR SHARE is when everyone contributes the same amount for the same services by fed, state, and local governments. Why is that so hard to understand? As children, we learned what was fair and not. Am I the only one who finds it strange that NO one ever talks about the lower-class/welfare persons using more services than the middle and upper class? Yet, 49% of that populace don't even pay income taxes, while some of them get a tax credit and a check,...

    So what is extremism in political terms? Depends on the ideological slant. If coming from the left, it is about feelings - feelings for others. Those feelings, whether negative or positive are their guiding principles. Logic is secondary. If coming from the right, it tends to be rationality, and to a lessor extent...feelings. They believe that reason is the all. Reason can explain everything within simple terms of what works within the human condition and a given society. Some are: self-accountability; self-determination; self-control; industriousness, and understanding of others within those parameters. So, who is correct? I suggest that logical thinking...

Some are within acts of Congress, others would need Amendments to our Constitution, which is remote, to say the least.

He and others are itching for a bloody fight if things don't go his way this Novemeber 2nd. I disagree. I believe if enough States were just to tell the Fedgov to "shove it", we may just have an opening back to our Constitutional roots.

    The people wanted stuff and now they are getting it. And they will find out much to their chagrin. As one of our Founding Fathers once said, to paraphrase, "Once the people realize they can vote themselves the treasury, the Republic is lost". This is now the case. Our wonderful experiment in freedom and opportunity is almost gone. With socialist/Marxists now in control of (2) of our (3) "balance of powers", we are heading over the cliff...soon to be thrown upon the rocks of history. I see no going back within the corrupt moneyed political process. The system is broken....

    The US Constitution is toast with this "porkulus bill" shoved down our throats in secrecy, we are now pretty much guaranteed that our Republic is gone. It's been coming for some time, as many of us have been warning. The Utopians in Congress and the Obama Branch have done so much harm to our Republic in these first few weeks they have been in power it is now obvious that we are losing the political battle for our Nation. History has shown that "power corrupts absolutely". However, that very axiom has also shown, once realized, that it can be the...

    As we slip into more socialism and totalitarianism with the TARP bailout (with 78 billion unaccounted for) and the obscene "Porkulus Package", at what point will true Patriots attempt a change? Personally, I believe that Joe-Six-Pack-Soccor-Mom doesn't know and cares not even if they do know! I also believe that the small rural gun-toting folks won't make a difference, which would be quickly put down by the authorities - think Ruby Ridge and WACO. That said, the only legal chance this Republic has is "term limits" and "reduced congressional sessions". The less they are in session, the less harm they...

    I highly doubt that Martin Luther King Jr. would want to see such a man that is going to take residence in our Oval Office. He was a man of principle - Obama is not.

    Those of us who revere and have worked for the continuation of our Constitutional heritage are now facing the biggest threat to our Nation since the FDR "New Deal" days, and some may argue even earlier. Unfortunately, middle-class Joe-Six-Mom Americans tend to not give a s**t. They, are about themselves, only. Us Constitutionalists talk our talk on Web boards, but continue to sit by as our Republic disintegrates. So many talk about civil dis-obedience. There are those who talk about armed conflict. Who really is going to take up arms? What? A few rural country types defending their 10 acres?...
