Here come da judge

Fed court tosses out 2 challenges to Obamacare...

Panel of 3 dem-appointed judges, including 2 appointed by Obama...

Rotting AF1

A three-judge Fourth Circuit panel comprised of two judges appointed by President Obama and one named by President Clinton, has dismissed a Virginia-based lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the national health care law's individual mandate, saying the state lacked standing to sue.

If letting Obama into the White House wasn't a death blow to our Republic, and it surely was; the Liberal's politicization of the courts, with its defacto creation of an oligarchical dictatorship, was very close to it.  Maybe our universe is in reality an ant farm owned by some other-galactic brat kid who lost interest in us after just a week and now spiders are in the process of eating us and leaving spider poop all over?   That at least explains it all.

What Liberalism Hath Wrought


"Death Wish" applause

Why They Cheered
Capital punishment brings out the worst in the liberal elite.

Perhaps the most striking statement at last night's Republican presidential debate came not from Rick Perry or Mitt Romney but from the audience, which applauded the preface of one of moderator Brian Crack!Williams's questions. Here's how it looked in the transcript:

    Williams: Governor Perry, a question about Texas. Your state has executed 234 death row inmates, more than any other governor in modern times. Have you . . .


    Have you struggled to sleep at night with the idea that any one of those might have been innocent?


Williams then asked Perry to explain the audience's reaction to Williams's question: "What do you make of that dynamic that just happened here, the mention of the execution of 234 people drew applause?"

Although Williams surely did not intend it as such, this question was a gift for Perry ...  [Taranto Full]

I imagine the raucous cheering I heard (and was a participant in) during the first screening of "Death Wish" left them all slack jawed.

After the debate, the Romney campaign slammed Perry for standing by his earlier statement that social security is a Ponzi scheme. 'It is a Ponzi scheme to tell our kids that are 25 or 30 years old today, you're paying into a program that's going to be there,' said Perry at the debate. 'Anybody that's for the status quo with Social Security today is involved with a monstrous lie to our kids, and it's not right.'

The Romney campaign seized on the remarks, saying that someone who believed that could not win the Republican primary, much less a general election." Can America elect a president who understands basic math? So far the evidence is against it.

THE HILL is representative of the media hysteria over the "Ponzi Debacle."  

Here is the basic problem Perry has: For 70 years, Social Security has been one of the most popular and productive programs to help senior citizens. Republicans and Democrats have supported it.

Big surprise.  People who got something for nothing like it.  But, is it a Ponzi scheme Mr. Hill Magazine?

The term Ponzi scheme has a very specific meaning for the type of swindle originating with Charles Ponzi in 1919 and continuing with the likes of Bernie Madoff. It promised quick and sure returns, used new, voluntary investors to pay old ones and is inherently a sham.

Blah-blah-blah Hill—   We knew what a Ponzi scheme is, so tell us why Social Security isn't one!

  .... the key is that this is not “voluntary.”
It's Free

Oh.  Well, there you have it.  It's not a Ponzi scheme because gummint can actually kill you if you resist tax collectors.  It's all so easy now.

By-the-by,  I'm sure someone can elucidate me here, but I haven't yet read or heard where Perry said he wants to "abolish Social Security,"  not that it's a bad idea.  I do find leftards putting the words in his mouth, like this guy

– Speaking to a crowd of supporters near the Alamo, in San Antonio, Texas Governor Rick Perry said if he has his way he will put an end to “all the freebies” and start by getting rid of Social Security, Medicare, and Free Speech.

Gee Dad! It's a Studebaker!

I never knew a single kid who wanted a Studebaker, or thought they were cool cars.

The "Weather-ly (underground) Hillbillies"

President Obama's half-brother, who runs a foundation that collects funds in the United States, was able to get approval of a tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service in an unheard-of time period of only a month, records reveal.

Barack Obama's half-brother Abongo Malik Obama, also known as "Roy" Obama, appears to have received the sudden IRS approval to operate as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization in only 30 days. The result was made retroactive for three years.

With Obama, bizarre is normal.
