Shostie: ManateeGag: his argument argument about Social Security was kind of weak.  "Do you still drive a 1935 car or watch a 1935 TV?"

"Yes."

George Will is entirely correct, but he's failing to account for one critical fact: Obama was elected without actually being a United States citizen. This in itself invalidated the Constitution, which means that Obamacare cannot, from a strictly legalistic sense, be unconstitutional.

His argument argument in TFA sounded like one of those libertarians saying, because the flag in the courtroom has gold braid on the edges the court is following admiralty law, so when the judge leaves the courtroom they can declare "man overboard!" and then name themselves as presiding judge and dismiss the case against them.

In other words, George, it's going to take more than just *you* declaring the ACA unconstitutional because reasons; you're going to need quite a few people actually in authority agreeing with your sophistry.

The man is 72. He should have retired by now. Why should we listen to him when he obviously can't manage his own finances.

runwiz: liberals want Social Security to remain the same as it was when instituted in 1935.


Question: Would you like Social Security, a program created in 1935, to continue to exist?

Liberals:  Yes please.

George Will: Aha! Liberals want Social Security to remain unchanged since the day it was started in 1935, evar!!!

Liberals:  Um, no, we didn't say that, it can be changed, and has been changed in the past 75+ years, as needed but it should continue, as opposed to being shut down...

George Will:  You want it unchanged! In your face, liberals!   *spikes miniature football, does happydance in yellow golf slacks*

I'm just curious, does anyone know the Congressional GOP's position on Obamacare? I'm just asking because it seems like by now they could have held some kind of vote to repeal it, if only as a symbolic gesture.

I know some people would say such a symbolic vote would be a waste of time. All I'm saying is that once, just for symbolism, would help clarify their position. There's no reason they'd have to do it like 50 times or anything. That would just be stupid.

I run master control at a Fox affiliate and have to sit through FNS every week.  Fortunately there's a mute switch.  Too bad I can't mute it over the air.

Growing up in yhe 80s, the closest thing to a daily newspaper my little Wisconsin town had was the Watertown Daily Times.

That paper publish Cal Thomas and George Will editorials weekly. When I was 12, I remember respecting George Will, because he was the one who wasn't an obviously batshiat insane christofascist.

My view of George Will has grown sligjtly more nuanced through the years.

Ok, for the last time 'pubs....

The PPACA was attached as an amendment to a previously existing revenue-generating bill that had already originated in the House. The Senate is perfectly free to propose amendments to bills, per the exact same origination clause.

"All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."

It's like for every amendment to the US Constitution, they take a highlighter to only the words that they agree with.
