Show them we can do better, Fark.

My VCOM (Very Conservative Office Mate) is flipping over today's decision. I asked him if he hated the freedom of insuring his kids (he has a lot) until they're 26. He said of course not. I asked him if my daughter, who has a pre-existing condition (asthma) should be denied insurance when she becomes independent because of that. He said of course not. I then asked what he objected to, and he told me we were all going to lose our insurance and be forced to buy government insurance and we wouldn't be allowed to see our own doctors anymore, but would instead have to go to whomever the government tells us to. Plus we would have to pay thousands more every year to pay for insurance for illegal immigrants.

This is how people "think".

Impeach Roberts.

*

Did Roberts wake up next to a horse head one morning?

*

America is gone.
The most horrendous monster of a law that the world has ever seen has now been cemented into place.
There may still be a nation named America but we can now kiss goodbye to prosperity as we used to know it.
Minimum 16% extra tax, and that's just for starters.
If only "the poor" would be asked to pay their fair share, but I suspect that will never happen.
Everybody pays for everyone else = "the rich" (anybody who pays taxes) pays for everyone who don't.
In order to "save" 30 million uninsured (allegedly) the other 280 million are now to be strangled, slowly.

*

Look on the bright side.

At least we can now run ads until the election saying Obama and the Democrats have imposed the largest tax increase in American history.

They can now run ads of death panels.

They can now run ads of legislation that will increase premiums.

They can now Throw Grandma off the cliff and blame the Democrats.

*

We are all now officially slaves owned by and for the U.S. Federal Government.

*

This just in on the News Wires:

"Supreme Court Consumes Bath Salts and in Zombie-Like Attack Eat the Constitution".


Anyone who has health care with an employer just lost it today. Your employer will pay the fine and you will be dumped into the health care pool. Your salary will go up little to none, but your taxes will go up big time to pay for all the deadbeats. The hard working poeple just lost big time! I just hope the unions also are subject to be dumped in the pool with the rest of us!

*

I have never been more ashamed of my country. Today my country is dead to me.

Long live Texas!

*

Roberts is a GD'd Traitor! Thanks for nothing, W.

*

Roberts betrayed us.
Kennedy wanted to strike the whole thing down.

Kennedy said the whole thing is unconstitutional which it is.

Bush should have picked Janice Rogers Brown.

We need a 2nd revolution. This is tyranny

*

John Robert's poison legacy: Mexican takeover of America, and Socialist dictatorship. IMPEACH this traitorous bastard.

*

This is why elections count. To all the imbeciles who stayed at home and allowed this socialist would be dictator to become president; how do you like the new taxes that are being crammed down your throat?

Nobody knows how hard they are being hammered by this outrage. We have been effectively raped by our own government.

*

The only problem that Liberals have with the history of chattel slavery in the America is that the slaves were privately owned.

*

The law was not written or constructed with the mandate as a tax. If the mandate is a tax then the law should have to be rewritten and sent back through the process. Written as a mandate the law is now invalid. Try to get it through as a tax.

If not, then slaves have risen up throughout history. It might be time for civil disobedience and whatever else needed to remove the entire population of politicians from their perches. Enough of this crap. If representatives no longer represent us then let them be removed.


This next one nearly killed me:

It's time to start viewing the federal government with hostility.

*

This is fascism. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.

*

The Confederate States of America doesn't look so bad now, does it?

*

"This is why elections count. To all the imbeciles who stayed at home and allowed this socialist would be dictator to become president; how do you like the new taxes that are being crammed down your throat?
They are as culpable as the blithering morons who pulled the lever to elect this dictator."

How about imbeciles who supported the architect of Obamneycare as the GOP nominee? They should be happy today. Their guy's ideas won.

*

This is going to bring about a revolution. Got your guns ready?

*

Roberts should say it like it is: congress passed the law, not me. Be mad at congress, not the court.
BULLshiat....he was a Stealth Marxist all along

IMPEACH ROBERTS

*

If the Constitution was not a dead letter before today, it is now. There are no longer any constraints whatsoever on the power of the government as against the individual, nor does it recognize any.

We are indeed, for all intents and purposes, slaves of our government, to dispose of as they see fit.

And I for one will act as any slave would; they will only get the bare minimum out of me. It's off to Galt's Gulch.

*

In shock. Who knew Roberts was a lib..and a coward.

*

No only disgusting, but this ensures Obama will win in November....
Roomey will win now

*

"...but this ensures Obama will win in November...."

On the contrary, this has awakened a sleeping giant. Now, anyone who does not get out and vote against Obama is officially an enemy of the United States.

*

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

repeat often to everyone.

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

that is out talking point.

now vote out every single democrat.

*

Will somebody please ping me wrt location, time, etc., of commencement of our rioting.

*

I will not vote ever again for the GOP rather I will vote for the most liberal/socialists/leftists etc candidate from now on.
Voting any other way will not matter as it will be a waste of time and a vote.....

Above post is totally emotional reaction....


This next one makes sense since their entire economic policy is based on the dreams of a 13-year old...

A 4th grader can see that this is not Constitutional.

If the government can do this, what the F can't it do to us?

*

When and Where is the first anti-slavery rally?

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

*

If the GOP is smart...
I see a flaw in your statement.Ed: so do I

*

RIP America.

*

Could John Roberts have been "blackmailed"? It may not be as farfetched as it sounds!
I think my husband and I are going to sell our home and his business. We are going to buy a camper and become gypsies! I am NOT giving one more damn dime to any of these marxists!

*

We now have to demand of any elected Representative and Senator that they will not get our vote unless they promise to repeal this monstrosity...or our freedom is lost forever.

*

Sorry to say, if you think this is ever going away, you're tilting at windmills. There is no way this is ever being repealed.

*

"prepare yourselves.."

My fellow American, we have been preparing for a civil revolution since 2008!

The freeloaders will not give up theirs without a serious fight and God willing, the good American people will give them a fight they won't soon forget. the fighting won't end until the American people take back their Constitutional government.

The adverse decision from SCOTUS is exactly what our forefathers feared in creating another government when they wrote the Constitution in the first place. Their fears have come true, unfortunately, the American people will have to again pick up arms to repel another oppressive tyrannical government.

Prepared, you bet your a$$!!!!

*

So, the federal government CAN mandate commerce, they simply need to represent it is a negative tax: Do this or else get taxed. So much for the US Constitution.

Since the federal government refuses to obey the constitution we should too! REVOLT!!!

Well the freepers should be consoled that even though they are forced to pay for insurance, they don't actually have to have it.

I think, from a Darwinian point of view, this is the best possible outcome. Freepers pay for insurance and then refuse it out of spite.

WhyteRaven74: Waldo Pepper: I guess I just think this whole thing is a scam and we are all being taken for a ride.

Yes because we're all as dumb as you to think "Well hey, nothing's gonna happen to me, and regular doctor visits? For pussies".


Solving our healthcare woes is a problem with business model. I answered this question at length like four or five pages back but I guess everyone was too busy fecklessly arguing that it got lost in there.

He is right though, this is a scam. It's a preemptive bailout for the health insurance industry because they are trying to protect themselves from low-market alternatives from rising up and disrupting them. This doesn't even solve the fundamental issue that healthcare is too expensive. The only way to address that is via disruption not making everyone have healthcare which is just going to turn into a massive clusterfark at the end of the day for everyone financially. That's the short uncomplicated answer. Adding more debt on the existing deficit is not the solution, and since people are now more educated via the internet and are wising up to the need for financial education, people are recognizing this bullshiat for what it is, hence the outrage.

I used to be 20 years old and a dumb naive idealist who worshiped Michael Moore but then I actually learned about how the world and realized something: You can't spend what you don't have. If we follow through on this (which I highly doubt this is likely going to get shot down before it even gets a chance to take effect) then it will only make things worse down the road rather than better for reasons that I already elaborated on in an earlier post so go back and read that if you want a more comprehensive view of how to fix this shiat and why Obamacare doesn't work.

Perhaps those contract workers should get together into some sort of group so they can negotiate a better rate with their employers or the insurance companies. They could probably get a better bargain if they operated... collectively.

Obamacare isn't perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than the alternative being offered by the Republicans.

Here's a car analogy: Suppose your old car is on its last legs, and you need to buy new one. So, you shop around for a while, and you decide on a five year old minivan with about 80,000 miles on the clock. It's not great, but it's safe and reliable. But your teenage son hates the minivan. He hates it so much that he's worked himself into an irrational rage, and one day he decides to go out to the garage and set the minivan on fire, in a fit of adolescent spite and stupidity. But John Roberts is driving by and puts out the fire last minute, and takes your son's matches away too. So now your teenage son is livid, and holds a press conference where he says that the day he turns 18 he's going to buy some more matches and burn that damned minivan and the garage it's in down to the ground, and then he's going to buy a newer more awesome car with all the money he makes at his part time job at gamestop.

And nearly half of America supports your son, because they hate the minivan too, and they would rather walk than ride around in a car driven by a black person.

WombatControl: Here's a clue: health insurance is not health care. All "universal" or "single-payer" systems work by rationing care. You want treatment for your rare cancer? Some government bureaucrat will determine that the treatment isn't cost effective, and you will either die waiting for it, or you'll never be given the chance. Not only do you end up dead in that scenario, but new and innovative treatments never get developed because said bureaucrat won't pay for them. Oh, but you have "free" health insurance - just not free health care.

Nothing is free. Health care is not free, and it can't be made free by government fiat. If the liberals got their way we'd have a system in which everyone but the ultra rich who could afford private insurace (or black-market care) is stuck waiting in lines for treatments they may never get.

If the statists got their way and we magically had an NHS-style system in the United States there would be riots in the streets because Americans do not take kindly to the government dictating to them what they can and cannot have. At least those Americans who still believe in the spirit of this nation's Founding, anyway.

Lord Dimwit: chiefsfaninkc: Fluorescent Testicle: chiefsfaninkc: Then your faith is misguided. Freedom died today. Congress can now make you buy anything they want and "Tax" you if you do not.

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 316x400]

/I'm sure this has been posted already.
//Can't be posted enough.

Sorry I am a libertarian not a conservative. Freedom is the only thing that means anything everything else is a byproduct of freedom. Again freedom died today people that are celebrating its death are idiots.

I know tons of self-labeled libertarians. Why is economic freedom so much more important that social freedom? My libertarian friends talk about how they vote Republican because the Republicans want "freedom" - but what they mean is "economic freedom". The Republican Party doesn't want freedom of reproductive choice, freedom of religious choice, or freedom of marriage. If you vote for a Republican, you are implicitly saying that money-related "freedom" is more important than your freedom to do as you please with your own body or in your own bedroom. That's fine if you believe that, but own up to it.


democrats no more believe in freedom than the current incarnation of the gop. they believe in freedom to do what you want as long as it doesn't conflict with the goals of the collective or how they think you should live your life. this is why true authoritarians like weaver feel so comfortable making the switch.

they want just want to slide what is morally acceptable open a bit, but don't for a second conflate that with true freedom. liberals definitely believe the government has the constitutional ability and more than that the obligation to restrict freedom as it sees fit to forward the goals of the collective.

they don't believe in any personal freedom whatsoever. the freedom to do with your body what you want only extends to things they deem moral. they don't have a problem with killing fetus, so you can do that. its got jackshiat to do with personal autonomy. that's why drugs are illegal, sex with your llama is illegal, sex with your sister is illegal. they don't want people to be free to marry anyone they want. they want people to be free to marry who they think is morally acceptable.

they have the exact same categorical failings as republicans, but at least some rep
