Justice Roberts, we have a penalty in the ACA!

Why yes, it is a tax! Which is why I am no longer calling it Obamacare. It is now Obamatax. Obama wanted this law. He pushed for it in Congress. He made sure that Nancy and Harry guided it through the House and Senate with extra special care. You know, that loving “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it” taurusfimus from San Fran Nan. It has been called Obama’s signature piece of legislation; an appellation with which Obama is quite happy.

But nowhere in the Affordable Care Act is the word TAX even used. The bill is 2,800 pages long and it never once mentions the word tax! But Chief Justice John Roberts saw through that scam and called it what it was; a TAX. Fine, it’s the law of the land. It is also a tax. Now I want Obama to explain how a tax increase is not a tax increase. Remember Bush 41 and how he said no new taxes but then stepped in it by raising taxes anyway? In 2008, Obama said he would not raise taxes on anyone that made less than $250,000 per year. So he lied. And what is absolutely delicious is that Chief Justice John Roberts led the four liberals on the Supreme Court down the garden path. They went along happily, skipping, and hopping, and jumping, and singing, while they thought they just gave the conservatives a big bloody nose. But what happened was the four liberals on the Supreme Court, including the two Obama appointed, just called Obama a liar!

BWAHAhahahahahahahahaha! It’s a TAX!

A Plea for the Constitution

In 1787, during the Constitutional Convention, the delegates took up the exact wording of Article 1, Section 8. The original text read,

Congress shall have the power…to borrow money, and emit bills, on the credit of the United States.

The original clause, from the Articles of Confederation said,

The United States in Congress assembled shall have authority…to borrow money, or emit bills on the credit of the United States…

As you can see, the delegates believed that Congress needed the power to print paper money. Mostly because the Articles of Confederation did not give Congress the power to tax. However, during the constitutional convention, an objection arose over those three words, and emit bills. There was a motion to stike the words, it was seconded, and the discussion began.

Some delegates believed the words should stay because they could not foresee all possible circumstances. However, with the country going through the ravages of a paper money based economy, one delegate likened bills of credit to the Beast in Revelation. That got the attention of many other delegates.

But the best argument against bills of credit came from Gouverneur Morris of Pennsylvania. He said, “If the credit be good, a bill would not be necessary. If the credit be bad, a bill would not be accepted.” The argument was flawlessly logical and led to the vote on the motion to remove those three words. The vote, taken by states, was 9-2, in favor of the motion. The words and emit bills were struck from the Constitution. Congress was denied the power to print paper money through ommission of that power.

In 1884, the Supreme Court ruled in the case of Juilliard vs Greenman, that Congress did have the power to emit bills of credit. In direct violation of the convention, of the Third Article, which limits the power of the federal judiciary, and of the Fifth Article which explains how to amend the Constitution. Because of this decision, George Bancroft wrote A Plea for the Constitution in 1886. If you don’t have it, get it and read it. As the preeminent American historian of the 19th century, Bancroft laid out how the Supreme Court overstepped their bounds and handed down a decision that was as unconstitutional as the bills of credit it allowed.

We now have the decision on Obamacare. The court has upheld this horrendous “law” as constitutional. Our Plea for the Constitution was not heard. Chief Justice Roberts was seduced by the dark side and voted with the socialist koolaidians. But there is a silver lining here. The court found it constitutional as a tax. And there’s no way to pay for this monstrosity by taxing the 50% of Americans that pay taxes. And it also means that everyone’s taxes just jumped by about $5000 per year.

My answer is simple. Governor Romney holds a press conference and says, “Obama has granted thousands of waivers, for his friends, so they don’t have to comply with his own healthcare law. Well, if I’m elected, I’ll grant a blanket waiver to 300 million of my closest friends!”

With everyone getting a waiver, the law is unenforceable and will be rendered useless. Because there will be no reason to keep the law, there won’t be a fight over it’s repeal; it can just happen.

Notes for douchebags

This just proves that, once again, Starbucks is run by a bunch of typical nose-in-the-clouds douchebags. Read the text in the photo to the right. Berry and Dark Cherry notes? What the hell does that mean? IT’S COFFEE! Stop treating it like it’s some expensive bottle of wine. And by the way, even expensive bottles of wine are produced by douchebags. And sometimes the cheap wines are the best.

So now Starbucks is trying to treat its coffee as though you can taste the different flavors, uh…“notes” in it. No you can’t! And if you say you can, you’ve just bought into the entire douchebagginess of advertising beverages. Besides, I thought most customers of Starbucks are liberals that go around spewing the awful nature of advertising and consumerism. I guess that doesn’t apply to what they buy.

An Apple a day keeps real employment at bay

I’ve always believed that the people that worked in the Apple “Genius” stores were anything but genuis. This pretty much proves it. According to the story, working at the Apple Store…

…has become one of the favorite “McJobs” in our economy for hip college graduates.

Remember in 2003 and 2004 when the unemployment rate was going down under President Bush and the Enemedia™ was calling the new jobs “McJobs” but using a very derogatory tone? I sure do. I guess McJobs are bad in a free economy (Bush) but teriffic in a socialist economy (Obama).

Anyway, back to the story.

Apple picks a small percentage of lucky candidates from the stack, which are submitted online, of course, through Apple’s web site. The company screens for “affability” and “self-directedness,” not tech savvy: The latter can be learned; the former is innate. Then Apple invites everyone to a “seminar” in a conference room at a hotel. If you’re a few minutes late, you’re eliminated.

The people who are offered jobs are often so happy that they burst into tears. (Emphasis mine.)

There are only two reasons for that type of response. They love Apple and its products so much they just can’t believe how lucky they are to work for their god. Or, being just out of college, with unemployment at 23% and no prospects for a real job, they just can’t believe they got any job in the Obama economy.

While I’m sure together they probably had a group orgasm at learning they would be working for Apple, I’m going with the second reason. There are a lot of parents that are telling their children to stay in college because there are no jobs. Actually, there are. In North Dakota. In the oil industry. It’s just that you need an engineering degree to get a good job there, not a fill-in-the-blank-studies degree that most liberals get.

And even if Romney gets elected, it will still be tough. The Bush tax cuts are set to expire in 2013 so that will have to be the first order of business for the new administration. Make them permanent and cut them again the following year. Maybe one or two percent a year for four years. That will do wonders for our economy. But they’ll have to cut government spending, too. The EPA and the Department of Education can hit the chopping block. And stop printing federal reserve paper; Obama has already done enough of that to last this country a decade or more. Then just sit back and watch the unemployment rate drop.

Little Debby

No, not WhatsHisName-Shitz. This is Tropical Storm Debby. The problem is that the weather models don’t agree. One says it will head West further into the Gulf of Mexico while the other says it will continue North and slightly East. In other words, weather and climate models have about a 50% accuracy rate — which is the exact same rate of probability if you just took a guess.

With Debby’s formation in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday, this marks the first time in recorded weather history that four named tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic before the end of June, according to AccuWeather meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski. (Emphasis mine.)

And it starts! Yes, we will now be told, and told, and told, and told, that this is the first time in recorded history that four named tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic before the end of June, the global warming/climate change advocate said breathlessly!

And next year, there will only be one named tropical storm before the end of June, except we won’t hear anything about how that number dropped from the previous year as the koolaidians invoked the name of Mother Gaia to stop the evil humans and their evil ways from detroying the planet.

As opposed to Mother Gaia destroying the planet herself.
