“Origination Clause”

The DOJ is arguing against this, of course. First they argued it was a “penalty” then, in the Supreme Court, DOJ argued it was a tax. All revenue issues have to originate in the House, Obamacare originated in the Senate. Read it all;

The Supreme Court upheld most provisions  of the act in June, but Chief Justice John G.  Roberts Jr. took pains in the majority opinion to define Obamacare as a  federal tax, not a mandate. That was when the Sacramento, Calif.-based  foundation’s attorneys had their “aha” moment.

“The court there quite explicitly says,  ‘This is not a law passed under the Commerce Clause; this is just a tax,’”  foundation attorney Timothy Sandefur said at a Cato Instituteforum on legal  challenges to the health care act. “Well, then the Origination Clause ought to  apply. The courts should not be out there carving in new exceptions to the  Origination Clause.”

By now all of you must have heard about the good Reverend Louis Leon’s Easter sermon where he stated

We  often want things to go back to the way things used to be, before  “work got  difficult and faith got confused, and life got more  confusing,” but when we  dwell on the “if only” of life we forget that  “God addresses us in the  now.”

As  Jesus told Mary not to hold on to the past, “You cannot go  back.”

“It  drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right  are always calling us  back … for blacks to be back in the back of the  bus … for women to be back  in the kitchen … for immigrants to be   back on their side of the border.”

“The message of Easter is about the power of love over loveless  power.”

Speaking of “going back”, the morality of the left when dealing with infanticide takes a page out of Sparta. Infants who were deemed not worthy of survival were left to die outside the city-state in wilderness areas as fodder for wild animals.

Not much different from today’s leftist standards when it comes to late term abortions. Talk about “loveless power”.

Some day, our descendants will look back at this and ask how we could have tamely accepted such barbarism. A special obloquy will attach to the Orwellians who call it compassion.

The left has been ‘concerned’ with the shrinking US population, therefore we must ‘legalize’ all illegal aliens. Since Roe v. Wade, 90 million potential US citizens have been aborted. Isn’t Planned Parenthood awesome? According to Babs Boxer;

life begins when “you take the baby home from the hospital.”

I have news for Rev Leon, when it comes to black citizens, the only group keeping them as victims and at the “back of the bus” is the left. Out of phony compassion black citizens are treated as if they are all stupid by the left. Education standards are lower for black kids than any other group and they are constantly barraged with the ‘you are all victims’ meme. This is the way to keep a group of people ‘separate but, equal’. The left was and, still are, the architects of ‘separate but, equal’. Leftist policies destroyed the black family by insisting that only single mothers with children could occupy subsidized housing.

Did you know that women make up 54% of the US population? I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t feel ‘second class’ to me. When it comes to misogyny, the left wins it hands down. The ‘sexual and cultural revolution’ has done more harm to women than any work place competition will ever do. HIV  is more prevalent among black women than any other group, STDs are more common across all classes of women then ever before. Frankly speaking, I don’t think this is what we would choose for our girls and young women to emulate.

Hey Democrats! BO is just not that into you!

President Barack Obama’s decision to launch his own political organization has some Democrats wondering: Is he just in it for himself?

Obama’s new group, Organizing for Action, will focus on his policy agenda – not on electing Democratic candidates – by raising unlimited amounts of cash and accessing the president’s secret list of 20 million supporters, volunteers and donors.

The operation won’t share money, resources or the priceless Obama email list with the Democratic National Committee or campaign committees that help elect members of Congress, governors and legislators. And it has no plans to coordinate efforts, leading some Democrats to worry that it will take money and manpower away from the party as it heads into the 2014 elections for control of Congress.

We told you so!

  1. Drug cartels making inroads….DHS doesn’t think we need more border security

    “Border states from Texas to California have long grappled with a cartel presence. But cases involving cartel members have now emerged in the suburbs of Chicago and Atlanta, as well as Columbus, Ohio, Louisville, Ky., and rural North Carolina. Suspects have also surfaced in Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania.”

  2. Kids say the darnedest things…..MO didn’t like it very much either…. LOL

  3. On the cutting edge of 50…still doesn’t know what to do with her life

    http://www.politico.com/politico44/2013/04/michelle-obama-says-shes-still-figuring-out-what-to-160669.html?hp=r6

    • The vitriol of the comments of that Mooch blurb has nothing to do with the subject at hand- a fifty year old do-nothing! She doesn’t know what she wants with her life? To be honest, the only drifters I ever meet have a liberal mindset. They still think they are 16 and in high school, all waiting for their real life to begin.

      • When the blurb was posted there were no comments at all….just read some…Whoa….
        Won’t it be nice when MO grows up, gets a job, and starts paying her way?

  4. Well, it looks like BO is going to Dallas for the opening of the Bush Library at the end of the month. Can’t believe the arrogance of this man! He has done nothing but blame W for the last six years, but now he’ll show up to honor him? How can people fall for his crap?

    • BO has no decency….never has, never will.

  5. Party on….sequestration is for the “little people”…..

    President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle will host a star-studded roster of music legends April 9 for another glitzy installment in the “In Performance at the White House” concert series, according to a White House press released issued Tuesday.

  6. Oh my, Rev Leon is a big hypocrite….bashing the people who gave him freedom…

    ” Rev Leon came to the US under Operation Pedro Pan, or the plan organized by the US and Catholic Charities to bring 14,000 unaccompanied children to the US from Cuba. It was one of America’s finest hours and proof that this is a nation that loves immigrants.
    Rev Leon should have reminded the audience, and specially all of the young people, about how the US has always opened its doors to people looking for freedom, like him and me.”

    Lynne, you are spot on in the topics you highlight. But I think all of us need to start asking when the Repubs are going to start fighting back.. Admittedly they are trying, but with a few exceptions, not hard enough imo. Also, I have come to believe that the only way O is keeping most of the Dems in the corral is through blackmail. I mean if he could come up with a high school prank of Romney’s, I think it is safe to assume his team can do the same to everyone. I remember a few cases where Dems spoke out, and took it all back the next day, probably after receiving a call from Valjar’s office..

    • OFA is the hammer that keeps the Dims in line….you can take that to the bank. A very sleazy group of power hungry people who love to dig up dirt.

  8. “This is your house too”……but ONLY if invited by MO and BO.

  9. Why not make it more convenient? AP no longer will use the term “illegal immigrant”…hurts people’s ‘feeeelings”

    • How in this cold? I can’t even dig into the ground for fence post holes.
      In a recent interview, she described herself as a single mother. She’s going to shoehorn herself into the victim role, facts be damned.

      • All I have been able to do is unbury the daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, etc.
        They must be using portable greenhouses, or something.
