Thinking the unthinkable. As horrible as it is to think of this, the wise are doing just that.

The shootings at the Oak Creek Gurdwara are reminiscent of the story of Bhagat Singh Thind who caused the United States Supreme Court to define “white” in the same way that inspired the murderous Wade Page.

Romney’s latest set of magic political underwear will not protect him nor the fantasy he wants to promote about being able to repeal the ACA.

GOP PACs are preparing to spend more than $1 Billion to win control of the White House, the Senate, more state legislatures and governor’s mansions, and to hold the House of Representatives and the state governments they already control.

Romney’s ideal America is one where the wealthy buy their own White House and Congress, tax revenues are rerouted from the poor, elderly and majority into the pockets of the wealthy and all regulations that prevent the wealthy from harming the public are removed.

If the Affordable Care Act goes down. No problem. The Justices and the Congress get GREAT medical care at tax payer expense.

In his slippery slope argument against the ACA, Justice Alito simply asks us to consider all the people who’ve been bankrupted and have lost their homes having to pay for their own sudden burial and the ongoing costs of remaining dead.

If the Court finds the mandate unconstitutional, will they find it severable from the rest of the law? If not, that would strike the whole ACA down. If so, can the ACA survive?

Wow, a Brain!

Then they start bitching about what he didn’t say and should have said, and how he should have said what he did say differently. They twist and turn and bend and break down and analyse and parse his every word…..

Why is politics so mind bogglingly complicated? You often hear conversation  about the host of complex problems we face today and that these issues cannot be reduced to bumper sticker slogans and addressed by simplistic solutions. I say simple clear, concise ideas are powerful and the problems we face are […]

constitution - obsolete
