Corruption at all levels: Supreme Court fails to read; GOP Congress too cowardly to act; and a dictator in the White House.

Congratulations to the US Government.

Today's Supreme Court decision, much like the previous sell out in deciding that the concept of forcing Americans to buy something... anything... somehow passes Constitutional muster is now joined by a politically driven failure to read... the ... law.

The wording of the law is quite plain and unambiguous.  Any ignorant leftist, for example, understands these words:
“The Court holds that when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act says ‘Exchange established by the State’ it means ‘Exchange established by the State or the Federal Government.’ That is of course quite absurd, and the Court’s 21 pages of explanation make it no less so,” Scalia wrote.
 Scalia added, “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’ It is hard to come up with a clearer way to limit tax credits to state Exchanges than to use the words ‘established by the State.’ And it is hard to come up with a reason to include the words ‘by the State’ other than the purpose of limiting credits to state Exchanges.”
Even the scumbag Chief Justice admits that he's ignoring the actual plain meaning of the words that are in the law, words which,on the surface
“In this instance, the context and structure of the Act compel us to depart from what would otherwise be the most natural reading of the pertinent statutory phrase.”
The only thing that keeps this nation together is some level of confidence in our branches of government that our freedoms are protected by these branches doing their jobs.

Legislators legislate.  Judges judge what is there, not what they wish was there.  And the President has the basic competence to run an elevator.

None of that is now in place.

The cancer of ISIS grows unabated.  Our debt is bankrupting us.  Our military is gutted by budget cuts and idiotic social programs.  Millions of illegal aliens pour over our borders to suck at the taxpayers apparently limitless tit as the left strives to grab the illegal alien vote and the right shrinks in horror. The GOP Congress lied itself into control.  The president at best is a complete moron, at worst is some sort of 5th columnist bent on destroying this country, since he's done more damage in real terms than any enemy this Nation has yet faced.

Government as a term becomes less and less meaningful when that government abrogates their responsibilities in favor of a self-perpetuating, amorphous blob that has long since reversed it's position from serving us... to having us serve them.

This Nation does not have an indefinite time remaining.

Let freedom ring?

Today, the US Supreme Court sounded our death knell.  Because now, any court, anywhere, can simply ignore what the law says and interpret it the way the may want in response to whatever pressure or agenda the judge may have.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, in no way begins to resemble what the Founding Fathers envisioned or what the Constitution actually either says or intimates.

I am disheartened by this decision, not only because of what it actually means concerning the insanity of Obamacare, but the ripple effect throughout the judiciary branch as, according to Justice Scalia... judicial notice has just been provided that in fact, words no longer have any meaning.

Before today, I always felt that you could call a basketball a watermelon, but that wouldn't make it so.

The scum in the majority of the United States Supreme Court have just proven me wrong.

I know you use this personal blog to vent frustrations, which means it doesn't have to be logical or rational, and I understand that. You say enough logical & rational things to show you can be.

I also know you hate situational ethics, but that's the only kind. By definition, if SCOTUS says something is legal or not - it's legal or not. Law trumps Liberty. Law trumps God. Venting helps.

Yeah. They always get it right. Kinda like Scott v. Sandford.

And if these clowns, citing that precedent, were to reinstitute slavery, it wouldn't surprise me in the least.
