Yeah, good luck with that, sparky.

Assholes.

Obama should send someone in specifically to be arrested and make a point of how crazy these people are.
 
2012-11-15 04:11:02 PM
Thank you, Wisconsin, for publicly displaying the incredible idiocy of your residents

/cheeseheads, indeed

Does Obamacare pay for treatment for cockpunching? Because this jerkoff is definitely in need of one

These are the people that are governing Wisconsin? Yikes.

They say you get the government you deserve, but I'm not sure that anyone deserves THIS.

Jesus, the insurance industry sure had a shiat ton of money to spread around the country, didn't they?

Nullification? Didn't we settle this shiat in the 1800's?

Yea... that'll go over well. Odds on when this guy has an extremely embarrassing sex scandal?

These legislators don't have a grip on the whole "process" thing, do they.
 
2012-11-15 04:57:33 PM
yea, it doesn't really go over well for states who want to interfere in federal law enforcement. just sayin.

"Just because Obama was re-elected does not mean he's above the constitution," Kapenga said.

The Campaign for Liberty promotes a "tenther" vision of the Constitution that would allow conservative states to reject federal laws they disagree with, though Wisconsin is still required to follow federal laws like Obamacare.

I'm not sure what would this even accomplish, should it pass. Are they going to arrest IRS agents who try to collect the penalty?

Also, wasn't Kapenga a Bond villain?

born_yesterday: Jesus, the insurance industry sure had a shiat ton of money to spread around the country, didn't they?


I don't think we can say the insurance companies are responsible. They generally don't like it when stupid people do stupid things, because it means they have to pay out.

There are times that I wish right-wingers had some balls - I'd like to see them actually do some of the bad-ass things they talk about doing.

This is obviously a dumbass thing that will go nowhere in the courts, but that's the beauty of the system.

A) You took a stand for your teabaggie bretheren.
B) If it *did* go somewhere it'd be tied up for years and your lawyer cousin would make thousands... THOUSANDS!
C) When it fails to pass constitutional muster, scream "activist judges legislating from the bench." and return to step A.

There is no downside, unless you're one of the people they claim to represent.

I'll say one thing for them, they're damned good at redistricting themselves into ten years of security.

Here you go, punishing the university for daring to shut down some classes because buildings were inaccessible due to the President of the United States speaking on the mall. Welcome to Wisconsin! We are Open for Business, if you know what I mean.

Punish the UW
 
2012-11-15 05:05:30 PM
A textbook example of political masterbation.
 
2012-11-15 05:05:40 PM
These people are really detached from reality. I would love to see someone try to enforce this.

I'm trying to find a reason for the visceral hatred the right has in this country against reforming the insurance industry. You know, besides THAT.

I thought Rand Paul was in Kentucky ...

First, you get some publicity...

I got a speeding ticket the other day, but I believe those are unconstitutional so I don't have to pay it. Check and mate.

Koch sucking Republicans threaten to arrest any federal official attempting to implement Obamacare in Wisconsin

Whhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyy!!1!

/Subby's is a fine headline

I suspect this legislator could be arrested by the feds for interfering with a federal official in the performance of his duties. Let's see if the Wisconsin legislative security droids are up to dealing with the FBI.

Last I checked, Colorado wasn't planning on arresting federal agents trying to do their jobs. Choosing not to prosecute is just a tiny bit different than preventing a federal agent from doing his job. Tiny bit.

OOOOO...tough talk. How macho!

Of course, he'll puss-out and do NOTHING. He is a Republican, after all. All hat, no cattle.

But I hope he does try to stop federal officials from enacting a constitutional act. For the lulz.

Look at your young men fighting
Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they've always done before

Look at the hate we're breeding
Look at the fear we're feeding
Look at the lives we're leading
The way we've always done before

My hands are tied
The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of god and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can't deny
And are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars
