Obamacare Ruled Unconstitutional; Americans Favor Repeal, Obama's Lies About His Broken Promises, Dickhead Vilsack; Climate Change One of the Greatest Threats Facing Our Planet...Really!? Seriously!?


Obamacare Ruled Unconstitutional; Americans Favor Repeal Almost 2 to 1 - The Weekly Standard

Yesterday's ruling by a federal district judge, declaring that Obamacare's individual mandate is unconstitutional, is a noteworthy blow to the highly unpopular overhaul and its ultimate prospects for survival. The New York Times writes:

A federal district judge in Virginia ruled on Monday that the keystone provision in the Obama health care law is unconstitutional, becoming the first court in the country to invalidate any part of the sprawling act....
The individual mandate – the requirement that Americans buy federally approved health insurance whether they want it or not – is, indeed, Obamacare's "keystone provision." Without it, younger or healthier Americans would sensibly opt out of buying health insurance (until they get sick or injured) thereby leaving Obamacare's taxpayer-subsidized insurance "exchanges" to cover everyone else in the non-group market, regardless of preexisting conditions or costs.

Medicare's chief actuary has already projected that, over ten years, Obamacare would raise overall U.S. health costs by over $300 billion in relation to projected U.S. health costs without Obamacare. But without the individual mandate, Obamacare would cause health costs to skyrocket – by a lot more than "just" $300 billion. Thus, without the individual mandate, Obamacare couldn't realistically stand.

Obama's Lies About His Broken Promises - TownHall

By: Chuck Norris

Last week, President Barack Obama was backpedaling like a circus unicycle rider, after his compromise on extending Bush-era tax cuts for the country's top 2 percent of income earners. Because he had pledged repeatedly during his presidential campaign to raise those earners' taxes, he instantly was slammed by his political base. Even pro-Obama comedic commentators Jon Stewart and Bill Maher were left humor-speechless.

Feeling defensive and maybe even a bit insecure, Obama fired back in anger against people across the political spectrum. Wielding his verbal sword, the president poked and prodded: "Take a tally. Look at what I promised during the campaign. There's not a single thing that I've said that I would do that I have not either done or tried to do. And if I haven't gotten it done yet, I'm still trying to do it."

"Not a single thing"?

Well, as a fighting champion who takes taunting seriously, I thought I'd take the president up on his challenge for us to take a tally.

What I discovered is that of the more than 500 promises Obama made during his candidacy, even according to the pro-Obama website PolitiFact's "Obameter," his scorecard reads: 123 promises kept, 39 compromised, 24 broken, 82 stalled, 232 in the works and three not yet rated. What that coddled language boils down to is this: Even according to those on the political left, Obama has fulfilled 123 promises and left 380 pledges dangling farther than participles.

Army Doc: Deployment Orders Illegal Without Pres. Obama's Birth Records- From 7 News Denver via Free RepublicCourt Hears Greeley Army Doc's Deployment Refusal Case
FORT MEADE, Md. -- A military court was set to hear the case Tuesday of an Army doctor charged with refusing to deploy to Afghanistan because he says he doubts whether President Barack Obama was born in the U.S. and therefore questions his eligibility to be commander in chief.

Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, an 18-year Army veteran from Greeley, disobeyed orders to report earlier this year to Fort Campbell in Kentucky to prepare for deployment, saying he believed the orders were illegal.

In videos posted on YouTube, Lakin aligned himself with so-called "birthers" who question whether Obama is a natural-born citizen as the U.S. Constitution requires for presidents.

MY TWO CENTS

Folks this is such a non-issue but I always find it amusing that people are perfectly willing to waste their fucking time and jeopardize their careers to try and prove a point.
I will say this, I believe that one day in the distant future long after I cease giving a shit about Obama we will find out something serious was hidden that could have disqualified him to be president.

However to me the point is this, despite all of the red flags that had nothing to do with his birthplace presidential eligibility folks still gave money to and voted for this incompetent bastard. If the media had done its job and if the average voter paid fucking attention to who they were voting for we would not even have to bring up his citizenship.

The same people who would take weeks and months selecting the right automobile, or months or years picking the right home, time and attention to selecting their kids school (provided they had a choice), women spending hours picking just the right dress or bra… folks decided to vote for a president who clearly had no substance in his message and bamboozled people into voting for him based on “HOPE.” Or in the case of ignorant ass Negros his skin color.

His birthplace is not the problem, the sanity of the American voter and the professional malpractice of the media was the blame for the mess we are all in now.

Government Wants ‘No Refusal’ Policy on Drunken Driving - CNS News

Washington (AP) - When 18 people died in alcohol-related crashes in his Louisiana parish two years ago, Sheriff Craig Webre looked for new ways to combat drunken driving. Using laws already on the books, the sheriff found a simple answer.

Webre's department west of New Orleans started using a "no refusal" policy for suspected drunken drivers who declined breath tests. When someone pulled over for drunken driving refused to take a Breathalyzer, Webre's deputies sought prompt search warrants from judges to take blood samples and charge suspects if their blood-alcohol levels exceeded the legal limit of 0.08.

The number of people killed in alcohol-linked crashes in Lafourche Parish fell to 11 deaths in 2009. Drunken driving arrests doubled. This year, only five people have died in such crashes in the parish.

"The statistics and the lives that have been saved cannot be refuted," Webre said.

The Transportation Department highlighted the no refusal policy on Monday as a way to crack down on drunken driving during the holiday season. Nearly 11,000 people were killed in alcohol-impaired crashes in the U.S. in 2009. Two-thirds of the deaths involved a driver with a blood-alcohol content higher than the legal limit of .08.
