Excerpts From Judge Vinson Obamacare Ruling
Wow. Here’s a link to the Vinson Ruling. Thoughts: Well, I’ve read the whole thing. This really does hinge on what powers the Supreme Court is willing to grant Congress over the individual. I’m hoping the Supreme Court trims Congress’ wings who in turn should trim the Executive Branches’ wings regarding all their legislation by regulation. See excerpts and pages below the fold.

Federal Judge Rules Health Reform Unconstitutional
A federal judge in Florida ruled the president’s health care reform law unconstitutional on Monday, citing the mandate that requires Americans to buy insurance. Because the provision is key to the rest of the law, the judge declared it unconstitutional in its entirely but stopped short of ordering the Federal Government to suspend its implementation. Last year, a federal judge in Virginia similarly declared the | Read More »

CPAC, GOProud and a divided right
And therein lays the single, greatest threat to Republicans, the GOP, Tea Party members, and the conservative movement as a whole which must be faced in the near future: are we going to unify or are we going to allow for division within our base to defeat us in 2012 and beyond?

My View From Here
ORIGINALLY POSTED AS COMMENT TO SON’S FACEBOOK POSTING As a patriotic American concerned with the future of my country, I’m less worried about the idiots trying to get into office than where we are heading. The Chinese are lending us money to finance our debt we can’t pay so we can by more stuff from them and for oil, while the Islamic stealth jihad slowly | Read More »
Democrat Accuses GOP of Blood Libel
When Sarah Palin referred to attacks against her as “blood libel,” it set off a firestorm of criticism. While criticism was primarily from the left, it also came from the center and even some on the right. Oddly, the same level of criticism isn’t happening following Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee) using the term “blood libel” to refer to the Republican efforts to pass House Resolution | Read More »

Protect, don’t condemn the Second Amendment
My commentary today is in response to the shocking “Opinion” of Thom Anderson in the Morning News (Florence, SC). The title of this opinion is Second Amendment to gun nuts like booze to alcholics . Shame on you Mr. Anderson! Of all people who should hold the Constitution of the United States of America in sacred awe, it should be a former newspaper editor. Throughout your | Read More »
Truth Is Consequential.
For two long years this column, along with most other conservative writers, have trumpeted the mastery of the conservative message in the face of the rising tide of Marxist totalitarianism. The very mission statement of this column, “The light of freedom and truth in the defense of our republic”, is a clarion call to action. Today’s conservative is most likely to be in the Patriot | Read More »
Americans, Stand Up To The Statists Now!!
Due to work commitments, both Skip and I are unable to produce an article today. With yesterday’s reading of the Constitution to the House, I thought this article from March 13, 2010 could be an apt reminder of why this should be necessary. (Dee, editor). Now is the time, wherever you are is the place. This is the quintessential battle to save representative democracy for | Read More »
Why would the Dems want to change the rules
Because it’s the best way to control POWER, it’s their Holy Grayall, OBAMACARE, the foothold, set forth, to change America.. The Big O doesn’t give two bits about the Constitution, and has spent trillions to make it disappear.. once the rules have been adopted by the new Senate they apply to all future votes, including any votes to change the rules. So you better think | Read More »
What Would I Cut?
Everything. Are people going to start falling out in the streets if we eliminate Social Security and Medicare? Will people keel over if we get rid of the welfare state? Hell no so why is it so hard for Republicans and Democrats to name their cuts. My cuts of choice are pretty simple and straight forward: Time for the kiddies to grow up and its | Read More »

Good Morning America – God Bless LTC Lakin

Now Is The Time.
I know now how our patriot forefathers, good British subjects all, could have been forced into acts of civil disobedience followed by open rebellion against what they saw as a government out of control and committing illegal acts against the citizens of the colonies. Freshman members of the 112th Congress I, and many other patriots, have been experiencing these same emotions. It’s not easy to | Read More »
Klein’s Crazy Constitutional Commentary.
(H/T Instapundit) This comment is going to haunt Ezra Klein for the rest of his career as a ‘wonk:’ …as it should, because it was an incredibly stupid thing to say – even considering that it was said on MSNBC, which means that almost nobody saw it anyway. For those without video access, Klein (in the process of sneering at the GOP’s plan to start | Read More »
