Re Mandatory Voting: Just How Much Can They Make Us Care?
Can the government make me care? No. But they can darn sure make you act like it. How so, you may ask? America is a free country? Only because our current indebtedness vastly exceeds anything we could claim as equity. You are not free. That died when the Obamacare Individual Mandate was ruled constitutional by Chief Justice Roberts and fellow Constitution-Haters in black. If the | Read More »

Supreme Court Homogeneity Does Not Reflect America
The absurd decision written by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act warrants a closer look at the institution. At present a picture of the nine justices gathered together in their black robes outwardly suggests a diverse group of judicial peers. Pictures can be deceiving, however. Truth be told there is precious little diversity on this Court and the next | Read More »
Only November Between Us and Socialism
It’s only November now between us and socialism. That’s it. We no longer have a “just” SCOTUS. With Roberts’ activist move last week, our course is predetermined. We don’t follow it, there is no tomorrow for conservatives.

Did Roberts Save Us From Future Lawyers with His ObamaCare Vote
Cross-Posted From Brian McGovern at SaveJersey.com, New Jersey’s #1 Conservative Website. Conservatives are understandably upset by what happened yesterday at the Supreme Court. Conventional wisdom was that the 5-4 decision would fall on the shoulders of Justice Kennedy and that he would likely side with the more conservative members of the court to strike down ObamaCare’s individual mandate as unconstitutional. Well, most of that was correct. | Read More »
FWIW: I usually post satire on the site…but the Opinion section is a little more on the serious side now. KAOS Supreme Nonsense | Kiran A. O’Shay | Thirdrailers.com The Supreme Court, the supposed last bastion of defense against government overreach in our system of checks and balances came back today and gave a big middle finger to the American people.

Obamacare: Winning the Battle but Losing the War?
Americans who respect the Constitution have been heartened by the oral arguments in the Supreme Court over the constitutionality of Obamacare. Based on the thrust of the questioning and comments by Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Kennedy, Scalia and Alito, there is good reason to hope that not only will the individual mandate be ruled unconstitutional, but that as a result the entire 2,700 page | Read More »

Political ideologies at war in SCOTUS pick
As the speculation mounts on President Obama’s pick to replace justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court, the New York Times last week showcased the spat between Chief Justice Roberts and the President that has grown markedly since the Citizen’s United free speech decision in January. Being that it’s from the Times, it’s not surprise that I missed it until now. Like most people, | Read More »
Holder DOJ: Whites Will Only Vote for Blacks If They Are Democrats
“But the Voting Rights Act has, sadly, become little more than a tool for political hacks to hide behind race in a quest to promote liberal ideology and the Democrat Party.” In the convoluted world of the Voting Rights Act, about which Chief Justice Roberts famously said, “It is a sordid business, this divvying up by race…” (see LULAC v. Perry, 548 U.S. 399 (2006)), | Read More »
Obamacare – One Scary Step Closer

Ameri-Kid’s Official TeleBuddy
HotAir’s Ed Morrissey runs the word counter and finds Obama will utter the word ‘I’ 56 times in a speech to the unknowing victims of tomorrow’s brand of liberals. His speech to the children is using the exact same writing technique that has made Obama what he is today. The more a person invokes self, without appearing condescending, the more personal the words are. Obama | Read More »
