Yep, just when I thought we were headed for the crapper, I got a booster shot.
The most surprising thing is Thomas wrote (and also Scalia) descenting opinion. The man has ask 2 or 3 questions from the bench in all these years, and written only a few opinions, he must be mad as hell to make an effort.
UN-fucking-BELIEVABLE! A couple of months ago Roberts hinted that there needed to be more unity between the Justices for the institution of the Supreme Court to remain credible, and that 5-4 splits (along party lines, much like Congress) would lead to the eventual demise of the SCOTUS. He's gonna take a lotta heat for being "The Deciderer" on this one .... not to mention the heat he'll take for authoring the decision! Struck down under the Commerce Clause .... but upheld as a tax! Who'd-a-thunk-it?
Watching Faux News spin this as a victory for the fundies is something to behold! They're now saying that because there is no criminal penalty for NOT PAYING THE FINE FOR NOT PURCHASING HEALTH CARE, people can protest this decision by not purchasing and refusing to pay the fine with impunity. Amazing! I thought Kennedy MIGHT vote with the sane folks, but never thought Roberts would cross the line. Sumbitch caught me by surprise.
Oh Yeah! NOW .... we need to get back to werk on "Single Payer"!
My first thought(scary ain't it??) was Roberts wants to keep his job, but he is safe, can't be replaced unless he dies, resigns or is impeached(which if the FuckingRepublicans are in charge is very likely!!).
What a great day for the President! Can't believe Scalia doesn't know he's not a politician, Really? It is almost crazy that Roberts acted sane! Hooray! Oh Jesus help me, Mittens is cryin' gotta go! lol
Anyone reading this in real time should tune into Rush Limbaugh's show. He's having an aneurysm o air... Priceless meltdown in progress.
That's even better news!
I nearly fell off my chair when the headlines popped up this morning, since I had almost reconciled myself to the hack-tastic supremes striking down the "broccoli" mandate. Guess Roberts has a shred of self-respect left... If he keeps this up, he may become a liberal yet. I shudder to think about the death threats he's going to be receiving, not to mention the cocktail parties he won't be invited to.As for the meltdowns by Faux sNooz and the allegedly human Rush (I only act like a pig) Limbaugh, I'll take Squatlo's word for it. No way am I tuning in.
We'll have the last laugh when you all have to pay for the LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD... You'll cry all the way to the poor house as your government taxes you to death, and your rights as an INDIVIDUAL are GONE! Maybe there will be a tax on cussing... if that's the case, you'll have to pay a whopping tax for your filth.
Hey Anonym-Ass: Kiss Mine, jerk! This is my fucking blog, and I'll use any kind of fucking language I choose to use. If you don't like it, kiss my hairy butt on your way back to your fucking cave. And if you're still reading, you ball-less bastard, sign your name to your next little message or keep your fucking opinion to yourself. If a Supreme Court decision makes you a little testy, think about how the vast majority of Americans feel about the Citizens United decision? I'm not worried nearly as much about the government "taxing me to death" as I am of some rich bastard buying all future American elections. Have a nice day, prick.
I'll drink to that.the Ol'Buzzard
Anonymous, we're coming for your guns next, and plan to kill you'r grandma, and are going to publish necked pictures of Sister Sara doing the dirty at the turkey farm on You Tube.the Ol'Buzzard
Hey Buzz? I'm gonna apply for one of those new Death Panel jobs just so I can lurk behind the glass and wait for infirm conservatives.
Hey! Chief Justice Souter... er, I mean, Roberts thought for himself, huh?He's sure going to be hated by the Right now.I mean, he went WAY off the plantation.
