Stupid is as .....

This is a Test. For the Next 30 Days We’ll See How Stupid the Republicans Are. This is Only a Test.

The United States Supreme Court will soon hand down its opinion in King v. Burwell and we will get to see just how stupid the GOP is.

To recap, the case centers on whether states that do not set up state based exchanges can get subsidies from the federal government to subsidize healthcare costs.

The law, as drafted, had a section on state based exchanges. That section gave federal subsidies. The law had a separate section on states that did not create state based exchanges. The law allowed federal exchanges, but did not have language giving a federal subsidy in the federal exchanges. That language was there, but was removed before final passage.

The healthcare expert Democrats relied on to help draft Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, was recorded saying this was done to incentivize the establishment of state based exchanges. The Democrats now pretend none of this happened and it was a “drafting error” the Supreme Court should fix for them.

I have no idea how King v. Burwell will be decided, but given how much pressure the Democrats are trying to put on the Court, the odds are they think it will be decided against them. Who knows. If it is decided against them though, they will scramble quickly to make Republicans own it.

Republicans, of course, lack any and all testicular fortitude — it having been drained by the yellow stripe down their backs.

Here’s the great test for the GOP. If King v. Burwell is decided against the Democrats, Republicans need advertisements ready to go across the fifty states with a very simple message.

“They never read it, they rushed it through, and now you’re paying the price. Tell Barack Obama we need to repeal Obamacare and start over.”

Use Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 18%‘s clip that they had to pass the law to find out what was in it.

Democrats passed this law over Republican objections. They drafted it. They screwed it up. Make them own it.

If Republicans do not do this we can be assured that (1) they are interested in fixing Obamacare, not repealing it and (2) are political and moral cowards. -  Erick Erickson 

I had to post the whole thing ... sorry.  Bets, anyone?

A well behaved gun ...

oday I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 30.06 right in the doorway.  I left 6 cartridges beside it, and then went about my business.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor boy across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near the front of my house.

After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn't moved itself outside.

It certainly hadn't killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had presented to do so.In fact, it hadn't even loaded itself. Well, you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the Media about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people.

Either the media is wrong or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.The United States is 3rd in Murders throughout the World. But if you take out just 4 cities: Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, and New Orleans, the United States is 4th from the bottom in the entire world for murders. These 4 Cities also have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the U.S.

ALL 4 of these cities are controlled by Democrats. It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data, right?

Well, I'm off to check on my spoons. I hear they're making people fat.

Nietzsche: Ode to a liberal Icon

    Liberal Culture                   


The Nietzschean Concept That Explains Today’s PC Culture

There once was a fellow named Nietzsche
Who was generaly quite filled with der shitsy
 But he was also a Packer
 And as middle line baker
 He was one real son-of-a-bitchky

‘God,” Friedrich Nietzsche famously declared, “is dead.”

God, it has been noted, made a similar yet more lasting pronouncement about Nietzsche. - Jonah Goldberg

But before the German philosopher departed this mortal coil, he had some interesting things to say. Nietzsche argued that one of the most powerful forces in society was “ressentiment.” Similar to the everyday word “resentment,” ressentiment lay at the heart of new kinds of morality. In ancient times, nobility was associated with power. The downtrodden, the poor, the weak, the enslaved were ignoble.

Today it is a great sin on college campuses — and elsewhere! — to make anyone other than the ‘privileged’ feel uncomfortable.
The masses of have-nots, to use a more modern language, resented their plight for understandable reasons. But they were too weak to launch a real, armed revolution. Instead, the powerless resorted to a moral revolution, assaulting the concepts of nobility, goodness, and morality and rendering them evil in the popular imagination.


In 2015, our society is shot through with Nietzschean ressentiment. Today it is a great sin on college campuses — and elsewhere! — to make anyone other than the “privileged” feel uncomfortable, challenged, or otherwise psychologically threatened by the use of the wrong words or concepts.

The University of California recently issued a set of guidelines about the terrible danger of “microaggressions” — small, usually unintended slights that allegedly hurt the feelings of the newly anointed classes of victims. One must no longer say that America is a “melting pot,” for to do so is to suggest that minorities should “assimilate to the dominant culture,” according to the new moralists at the University of California.

And one mustn’t say anything that advances “the Myth of Meritocracy.” Saying “America is the land of opportunity” or “everyone can succeed in this society if they work hard enough” is now a form of bigotry. Of course, the surest way to guarantee that America is not a meritocracy is to teach young people not only that it isn’t one, but that it’s evil to say it is, or should be, one.

Post script:  In 1889, at age 44, Nietzsche suffered a collapse and a complete loss of his mental faculties. The breakdown was later ascribed to atypical general paresis due to tertiary syphilis ... Ahem
