    Too many judges are in obummer’s pocket. I think that they will rule in favor of Marxist Care. I really hope I’m wrong on this…

    • Ricorun June 21, 2012 / 5:40 pm

      Apparently, you believe obummer has some very big pockets, dvindice! But I don’t think they will. Either way, though, I want to read the ruling.

      • Dvindice June 21, 2012 / 6:30 pm

        meh… whatever.

    The Dems already have a plan if the ruling doesn’t go their way. They plan to keep as much as possible if only the mandate is struck down and if it gets completely struck down (unlikely) they plan to use executive order to implement this disaster. We shall see…..

    I predict they strike down the mandate, and considering the severalty nature of the bill, that pretty much strikes down the entire thing.

    • Ricorun June 21, 2012 / 5:43 pm

      I agree. If they strike down the mandate the bill is pretty much gutted.

    Down, in part. If it was all upheld, the Government could force you to apply for 404/401 permits & fill a jurisdictional wetland on your property even if you wanted to preserve the area. If uoheld, the Government would hold too much power-way past that envisioned in the Constitution. Just my 2¢…

    I hope everyone gets to read the posts from James & Diane before they are deleted. Those two are a good example of the sub human life forms who currently occupy the democratic party. They are not tolerant, they are not civil, they are not decent, and they are not good for society or America.

    They and their ilk, including Obama, need to be relegated to the margins of society this November.

    • Ricorun June 21, 2012 / 5:34 pm

      What? Someone’s post was deleted whole-cloth, without any vestige? That can’t be!

      • Cluster June 21, 2012 / 5:38 pm

        The vestige is the stench of the political world they occupy. I can still smell it.

        I didn’t get to read Jame’s or Diane’s comments. But reading Freddie’s comment reminded me of the necessity of deleting comments in order to preserve decorum. It was not thought out and frankly sounded like someone who was inebriated. That said, I don’t think any of mine qualified. Opinions may differ.

        And I appreciate you sticking up for me, Cluster (i.e., in the sense that you think I might have something to add — I don’t mean to imply anything beyond that). At any rate I don’t think deleting comments whole-cloth, as if they never existed, is the way to go.

      • Amazona June 21, 2012 / 8:25 pm

        rico, are you now claiming that you had more than one post deleted, in its entirety, with no explanation and not even a footprint left on the blog as so happens when the content of a post is removed but the name of the poster remains?

        And that you did not engage in racism, ageism, sexism, profanity, or other forms of bigotry? That you did not identify other posters by name or divulge personal information such as their addresses or places of business? That you did not threaten other posters or engage in anything like wishing for the death or injury to any other poster? (I am just trying to remember why other posters have had posts removed,)

        Do you have any theories about why you, of all the posters ever to post on this blog, have been singled out for such discriminatory actions? I can’t speak for moderators but I have seen plenty of posts with notations about why the content was removed, and have seen this as a kind of warning for several posts before entire posts, including the name of the poster, were removed.

        It is just so odd that you, of all people, have come swanning back into the blog after such an extended absence and with a blog style that is, while often rather impenetrable, has never been outright offensive, only to be treated as even repeat and blatant offenders have not.

        And have refused to repost the supposedly offending posts to see if they would remain, or to let us actually see them.

        Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

        It’s like turkey manure.

    • Cluster June 21, 2012 / 5:50 pm

      Frederick,

      I fail to understand why you care about that. You are tolerant right? Is any of those actions illegal? No. And some people probably pay good money in San Francisco to have that – so please spare me your concern. You are either an intolerant asshole, or just a very unpleasant person hell bent on destroying others. Either way, I can do without you.

    • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] June 21, 2012 / 5:50 pm

      Fredrick, you and your allies who claim to write for the Brimstone need to realize that you stepped over a very important line when you repeatedly posted the name and address and business of a blog poster and posted claims of misbehavior on his part as well as implied threats and other efforts at intimidation. There were several references to all of this after Brimstone people were warned two times that this would not be allowed. Please understand that this behavior has resulted in all posts from any of the Brimstone posters being disallowed on this blog. // Moderator

        Brimstone people picked up the ball and ran with it even after being told it was not acceptable, and continued to make reference to it. All who broke the rule are gone. //Moderator

      neocon will always be in good standing. Conservatives are more tolerant and more forgiving than any liberal could ever be.

    • Cluster June 21, 2012 / 5:57 pm

      I am very tolerant of gays, and know many of them personally. I just don’t support them hijacking the word marriage, but will fully support civil unions.

      I am very tolerant of Obama, I just simply, and vehemently oppose the way in which he is governing this country and will work tirelessly to defeat him. But I do wish him a good retirement.

      As far as neocon is concerned, is not my issue, and neither is it yours. Your just intolerant.

        it is called having passwords compromised ….HACKED,
        and subsequent illegal spam and e mails being sent and posted by those hacker criminals. with my web address.

        Most likely by the same type of cretins like jimmah and the forkers.

        This exact same thing happened AGAIN on AOL this past january on my business site, I was shut down for three days attempting to remedy the security breach.

      • Amazona June 22, 2012 / 5:59 pm

        Last week I got an email from an old friend who had pretty much dropped off the radar for the past few years. It had an attachment, and I opened it and immediately saw, as it started to take a long time to load, that this was a problem and got out of the email and out of my program.

        I contacted her and told her to let everyone in her contact list know that someone was using her email address. This happened to me twice in the last year, getting an email from a legitimate address of someone who had me in his or her contact list. A friend got an email from an old girlfriend with a story of having her purse stolen in Scotland and needing emergency funds to be able to get back home to her bank account—–a fraud, of course.

        I haven’t been here enough lately to know exactly what happened but it looks like it was quite a dust-up and connected with a hacked email account. I am just saying, I know it can happen because I have seen it.

        when a pc is used by many people including employees in a business you best damn well be sure of who you are personally accusing there forker boy, id say there is liability involved.

        One of the reasons I think you are in good standings here is those times that you fly off the handle and go over the top, when asked to tone it down, you tone it down. Our liberal friends however just keep trudging on until their posts are deleted on sight. (or at least when the moderators log on and clean up their droppings.)

        Anyway, if obamacare is overturned I believe that it will be done so by a very narrow vote.

        which is absolutely frighting, this should be a slam dunk based on the constitution of the US, a blind man could see this from 10 miles away.
        Instead we have America hating left wing radicals on the SC and we can thank the RINOS as much as the marxist donks for that.

  6. Cluster June 21, 2012 / 5:37 pm

    I think it’s worth noting that this country has never been more divided – racially, and financially and it’s all because of Obama and his legion of loyal liberals.

    Thanks guys. You’ve created one hell of a mess

    • Cluster June 21, 2012 / 5:53 pm

      You are a good example of why we have the divide we do Frederick. You are an intolerant person and know nothing of who conservatives really are. You simply emote your disdain towards them based on your false and cartoonish concept, and will never evolve from that position.

    • Cluster June 21, 2012 / 6:00 pm

      I have no interest, or obsession, with that issue as you apparently do, which is weird.

      You are what’s wrong with America in my opinion

      the question is why didnt Roberts make soda-meyer recuse her self?

      • Count d'Haricots June 21, 2012 / 7:24 pm

        It’s not up to Roberts. The only one that can recuse is the Justice himself/herself.

        Strassel: Axelrod’s ObamaCare Dollars
        Emails suggest the White House pushed business to the presidential adviser’s former firm to sell the health-care law.

        Rewind to 2009. The fight over ObamaCare is raging, and a few news outlets report thatsomething looks ethically rotten in the White House. (a Kenyan usurper?)
        An outside group funded by industry is paying the former firm of senior presidential adviser David Axelrod to run ads in favor of the bill. That firm, AKPD Message and Media, still owes Mr. Axelrod money and employs his son.

    My thoughts and prayers are that Obamacare is struck down.

  8. Count d'Haricots June 22, 2012 / 1:40 pm

    Neo,
    Once selected to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States, a Justice is assumed to be of the highest integrity. Their motives and judgment must be held as sacrosanct or the system doesn’t work.

    There are times when the Court makes decisions that are suspect and times when rulings are overturned by subsequent Courts. Justices like Ginsberg (the US Constitution is not the best model) or Souter (we should consult “international law” before rending judgment) or Sotomayor (a wise Latina) are out of step with their positions and frankly in over their heads; but they’re vote on the Court carries the weight of our Constitution and the rule of our law.

    We should never be in the position where the Chief Justice of the United States should disallow the input of the Supreme Court Justices putting his/her judgment over theirs. Liberals would love an Imperial Arbiter, and some, like GMB believe that one person’s personal beliefs supersede the co-equal nature of our government. (As in Gerald Ford could defy Congress in pursuing military action in some Quixotic adventure that had already been adjudicated.)

    • Count d'Haricots June 22, 2012 / 1:41 pm

    Hey, Fox News reports about the Affordable Care Act rebates us self-insurers are getting in August. Pretty swell, according to them. Virtually no mention of “ObamaCare” in the article, though. Wouldn’t it be great if that socialist abomination called ObamaCare was as cool as the Affordable Care Act?

    • tiredoflibbs June 26, 2012 / 6:06 am

      creepy assclown, too bad since the passage of the “Affordable” Care Aect that health care premiums rose faster than the amount of these pathetic “rebates”. In 2011 alone, health care premiums rose 9% on average for all Americans and only less than one-third are getting the “rebates”.

      Gee, it is comforting to see how you mindless drones are so easily and cheaply bought off by such a “cool” program.

      Pathetic.

      BTW, you do know that using “cool” and “obama” in the same sentence has racial undertones as ASSerted by the CBC????

      Even more pathetic.

    • Amazona June 26, 2012 / 9:10 am

      freakzo, are you saying you support the so-called “Affordable Care Act”? Or anything else? As usual, it is really hard to figure out why you are posting. Are you attempting to defend something, or just spewing vitriol and snot?
