Is Texas making it's Alamo stand against Obama and Boehner's Federale's? It sure seems like it is happening that way

Texas has the opportunity to take matters into its own hands.

Opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, with its embedded health insurance mandates, has stirred a widespread revival of interest in the Tenth Amendment and state sovereignty issues.

The passage of the health care act opened the eyes of many previously apathetic citizens, making them aware of the rapidly expanding scope and influence of the federal government and its intrusiveness into their everyday lives. They intuitively understand that requiring them to purchase health insurance falls far beyond the powers granted to Congress by the Constitution. Suddenly awake and alarmed by the fact that the federal government has grown so far out of control, and frustrated by what they see as the lack of responsiveness by politicians in D.C., many Americans find themselves looking for answers.

And they are turning to their states.

Fourteen states have sued, seeking to block implementation of the unconstitutional health care act. Twelve states, led by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum filed in federal court in Pensacola.

“The Constitution nowhere authorizes the United States to mandate, either directly or under threat of penalty, that all citizens and legal residents have qualifying health care coverage,” the lawsuit states.

But some states are asserting their own authority to block unconstitutional acts, recognizing that federal courts don’t stand as the sole arbiter of constitutionality.

On Nov. 16, Texas Representative Leo Berman (R-Tyler) filed a bill in the Texas House of Representatives that would nullify federal health care legislation in the the Lone Star State. HB-297 asserts:

The federal Act is not authorized by the United States Constitution and violates the Constitution’s true meaning and intent as expressed by the founders of this country and the ratifiers of the Constitution.
The federal Act:
(1) is invalid in this state;
(2) is not recognized by this state;
(3) is specifically rejected by this state; and
(4) is null and void and of no effect in this state.

The bill takes things a step further, making it a crime for any official, agent, or employee of the United States or an employee of any corporation to enforce any part of the health care act in Texas, and imposes fines up to $5,000 and/or five years in prison for anyone convicted of doing so.

While some might call this legislation radical, it rests squarely within the scope of state power as understood by the framers of the Constitution. James Madison wrote in the Virginia Resolution of 1798 that states not only have a right, but a duty to step in when the federal government oversteps its authority.

That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact, to which the states are parties; as limited by the plain sense and intention of the instrument constituting the compact; as no further valid that they are authorized by the grants enumerated in that compact; and that in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto, have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.

Tenth Amendment Center founder Michael Boldin said that Berman’s bill does not represent an extreme viewpoint and insists each state should determine the best path for its own citizens.

“There is nothing more extreme than having a federal government that refuses to abide by the laws that we the people of the several states delegated to it in the Constitution,” he said. “The important point here is that it’s up to the people of each state to determine what the best response may be. One state, as Wyoming did with its Firearms Freedom Act, may decide that penalties on federal agents is the rightful response. Another, such as California with medical marijuana, may choose to create an environment conducive to non-compliance by masses of people. Either way – or somewhere in between – that’s the beauty of the American system. We can have widely varying actions, responses and viewpoints in different states while all living together in peace. One-size-fits-all solutions are actually the problem, and state-by-state decision-making is the natural response.”

Berman said that his bill faces an uphill battle as long as the current Texas House leadership remains in place. The legislation will likely end up bottled up in committee.

“The best chance for passage is to get rid of the current Speaker,” Berman said.

That speaker is Rep. Joe Straus (R – San Antonio)

Straus did not respond to an email request for comment.

Despite the fact that the bill faces long odds for passage, Boldin said introducing this type of legislation remains important,

“Whether or not there’s any guarantee of getting something passed is no reason to not do what’s right,” he said. “Champions look at insurmountable odds and take them on with passion, and that’s what We the People need to do in defense of our liberty.”

And its about baby steps. Boldin said he views the dismantling of an overreaching, bloated federal government a long-term project.

“Dealing with a constitutional monstrosity like Obamacare is going to take time. In the mid-90s, people around the country were saying that it was absurd for California to go it alone and try to pass a medical marijuana law. But they did, and today, we see 15 states openly defying the federal government on this issue,” he said. “The blueprint is straightforward – when enough people say no to the federal government and enough states do so as well, there’s not much that the feds can do to enforce their unconstitutional ‘laws’ on us.”

Madison agreed, Writing in Federalist 46, he laid out the blueprint for constraining overreaching federal power.

“Should an unwarrantable measure of the federal government be unpopular in particular States, which would seldom fail to be the case, or even a warrantable measure be so, which may sometimes be the case, the means of opposition to it are powerful and at hand. The disquietude of the people; their repugnance and, perhaps refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union, the frowns of the executive magistracy of the State; the embarrassment created by legislative devices, which would often be added on such occasions, would oppose, in any State, very serious impediments; and were the sentiments of several adjoining States happen to be in Union, would present obstructions which the federal government would hardly be willing to encounter.”

Texas has taken the first step. Now the people of Texas need to rise up and insist on passage of the bill. Ultimately, the people’s voice will carry the day.

The question remains, will they speak?

Bill Maher: Real Time With Real Lib

We've got digital media files from 'Real Time With Bill Maher", and although we're not exactly sure why he has his own show we do know that he is a citizen of Libtardia, and on the topic of science, a very uneducated citizen at that. Fortunately for us we have Mike Church, an educated citizen in all things Constitution and Patriotic; something Bill Maher apparently knows nil of. According to the philosophy of the Libtard, if you're a scientist that doesn't work for the government you must not be trusted for you are corrupt. We say: Bill, nobody is denying climate change, of course there is. The planet moves through space and is affected by cosmic forces we have no control over like the Sun and other planets. According to the third grade science project all of America had to take part in, we learned the solar system revolves around the Sun not the Earth, but then again we're using a combination of intelligence, evidence and common sense, something we clearly cannot expect from everyone.

Mr. Maher, we'd like to ask of you to grow a set of nads, then call for what is that you're asking people to follow you to, which is the end of days. Give up your private property, fancy cars, fancy house, retirement funds and so on then maybe we'll discuss issues more pertinent than the solar system.

Climate Change Is Simple

Begin Mike Church Show Transcript

Mike: So you’re not convinced out there, obviously. So Dylligan Ratigan and Ted Rall didn’t convince you. Lawrence O’Donnell, out of the closet now, socialist, and Glenn Greenwald, who’s arguing that somehow Nancy Pelosi is not radical enough, and neither is Barack Hussein Obama – mm, mm, mm. So we need some real revolutionistas, real revoluciones. Listen to Bill Maher here from his monologue on Saturday night. Wasn’t O’Reilly on with Maher on Saturday night?

Mike: I’m pretty sure O’Reilly was in there because I heard him play a digital media file last night from his appearance with Maher, and he really got Maher [chuckling], when Maher said, “Well, Bill, I don’t know why I keep inviting you back on this show,” and O’Reilly said, “Because you want to get better ratings?” [Laughing] Funny stuff. Listen to this delusion here. And by the way, ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know, I don’t know how this got started. But somehow it has become another rite of passage for the revoluciones out there that, if you’re a scientist, and you do not work for the government, then everything you say is not to be trusted, and you cannot possibly have any brain cells to rub together. You have to be in the pay of someone else. You must be crooked, then. You must be corrupt. So only government can provide science now. This is what Maher’s argument on climate change is going to be.

Let me tell you something, Mr. Maher. Why don’t you invite an actual climate scientist on that program of yours, like Dr. Roy Spencer. Why don’t you invite my friend, David Archibald from Australia. He’s quite a funny guy, and he’ll blow you out of the water. Why don’t you invite Marc Morano on your little show there, on “Real Time,” and have an actual discussion about the science behind climate change. Nobody denies, Bill, that there isn’t climate change out there. Of course there’s climate change. The planet moves through space. It is affected by cosmic forces that we have no control over whatsoever, including our sun, and including the movement of other planets, you nitwit. You’re the anti-scientist, you alchemist freak. You think all these giant celestial bodies moving about in space don’t have an impact on this planet? What are you, nuts? Oh, yeah, yeah. What are you, Copernicus now? Everything revolves around Earth?

Don’t be so arrogant and so shallow and stupid, Mr. Maher. You’re the imbecile, and you’re the one that’s not looking at science. I would think that a reasoned people, and people that use reason to think, would probably be safer in concluding that, because we don’t know what’s out there, and because we don’t know all of the effects of the bazillions of planets and stars and galaxies that we continue to discover with all our vaunted technology, we can’t possibly know what effect they have on us. We can’t possible know what their movements have on us. We can’t possibly know what the turning up or down of their thermostats have on us. The stars do fluctuate, do they not? What, do we live in a vacuum here? We’re insulated because we’re Americans and because we have a sign that says, oh, I took a temperature, man, it’s hotter than it was yesterday. So? That’s effect, that’s not cause. There are two parts of hypotheses, sir, cause and effect. You’re telling me the effect, you’re not telling me the cause. Play your digital media file because Dr. Spencer heard this. What happened was that an actual climate scientist had heard this, and has responded it to it already. Roll the digital media file.

[Clip] Bill Maher: But the message of the rally, as I heard it, was that if the media would just stop giving voice to the crazies on both sides, then maybe we could restore sanity. It was all nonpartisan and urged cooperation with the moderates on the other side, forgetting that Obama tried that and found out there are no moderates on the other side.

Mike: Eh heh, eh heh. You mean the moderates that grew the debt twice?

[Clip] Bill Maher: When Jon announced his rally, he said that the national conversation is dominated by people on the right who believe Obama is a socialist, and people on the left who believe 911 was an inside job. But I can’t name any Democratic leaders who think 911 was an inside job. But Republican leaders who think Obama is a socialist? All of them. McCain, Boehner, Cantor, Palin, all of them. It’s now official Republican dogma, like tax cuts pay for themselves and gay men just haven’t met the right woman.

Mike: Eh heh, eh heh, eh heh, so funny. Ha ha ha ha, I’m laughing.

[Clip] Bill Maher: As another example of both sides using overheated rhetoric, Jon cited the right equating Obama with Hitler and the left calling Bush a war criminal. Except thinking Obama is like Hitler is utterly unfounded, but thinking Bush is a war criminal, that’s the opinion of General Anthony Taguba, who headed the army’s investigation into Abu Ghraib.

Mike: Pause this. Pause this madman for just a second here. HBO is irresponsible. I should cancel my HBO subscription when I get home tonight. Number two, who accuses Obama of being like Hitler? Who? I’ll say it right now to your face, Bill. He’s not like Hitler because he doesn’t have the ‘nads that Hitler had to actually come in and use the military, thank the Lord he doesn’t have the ‘nads, to get his way. He doesn’t have the ‘nads to actually be a national socialist like Hitler was, like you want him to be, Bill, and to come in and take the remaining wealth that remains with the American public and expropriate it and use it the way you think he ought to use it. Right?

You don’t have the ‘nads to ask him to be like Hitler, Bill. That’s the big thing that’s missing. You’re the sissy, sir. Why don’t you get off your little throne there in Hollywood, and why don’t you send a letter to the President, and why don’t you tell him that you and all your little buddies out there in Tinseltown, in Hollywoodland, will absolutely support him if he calls up the 101st Airborne and starts sending them out into the hinterlands and into the neighborhoods to do exactly what Hitler did, serve notice to the people that your private property is not yours anymore because we have a national problem to fix and because we need some manufacturing jobs, so we’re just going to start confiscating all the steel that’s left in your tractors out there. Why don’t we try that? Oh, wait, Mike, that was Stalin that did that. Oh, gosh, wrong henchman. Why don’t you grow a set, Bill? You and your buddy Dylan Ratigan.
And why don’t you actually call for what it is that you’re asking people to follow you to, which is Hades, which is the end of days? Hmm? Hmm? Why don’t you have the courage of your convictions, sir? How about giving your private property up first? How about giving up your big fancy car? How about giving up your big fancy house? How about giving up any retirement funds that you have? What makes you exempt from the confiscation of wealth, Mr. Maher? Hmm? I love these limousine liberals, like George Carlin called them once, who think the only problem with this country is that we don’t have enough bicycle paths. Why don’t you lead the way? Why don’t you get with your buddies, with your buddies on the left there, so desperately want to see all of these things go away?

Because at the end of the day it’s those pesky little individuals that get in your way, Mr. Maher. It’s those pesky individuals that refuse to be knuckled-under and steamrolled by their government and refuse to surrender what little wealth they have left and what little liberty they have left that stand in your way. Well, we’re not going to get out of your way, Mr. Maher. Let me inform you of something, sir. Bring it on. You and all your little crook friends. You’re the one that’s on the wrong side of history, and you’re the one, despite your little rhetoric and your little comedy bits and all your little sycophants out there going “Yay, Bill, yay, you’re funny, yeah.” O’Reilly may want to sit down and hang out with you and think it’s funny for ratings because, oh, he’s such a fair guy. Well, I’m fair, too. Grow a set, Bill. Grow a set, Mr. Maher.

Now, I ask you hows that for telling it like it is and not pulling any punches??

Healthcare Plan vs. Iraq War: They're Both Unconstitutional

Let's say you happened to stumble across a 'magic coat rack', and when you hung your coat on the rack a whimsical genie appeared and told you that you'd be receiving 1.8 Million dollars a week for the foreseeable future. After your initial shock wears off and you realize the monetary Goliath that you have on your hands... we propose the question: what would you spend it on? and could you spend it all per week? If you said 'no' to the latter then consider yourself more fiscally responsible than the Federal Government. If you said you'd spend the money on military, in particularly in Afghanistan, then you most likely ARE the Federal Government.

Lets dwell on this further, shall we????
I offer you an interview between Mike Chrch and a caller named Katie:

Mike's got Katie of North Carolina on the line and she can't seem to apprehend why Liberals complain constantly about the cost of the war in Iraq (trillion dollars and counting) when the cost of healthcare will likely trump Iraq. Mike feels two ways about this: Firstly, Bush had no fidelity of the Constitution in declaring war in Iraq, he instead used a usurpation of the people's power claiming an "act of military authorization". Fifty United States go to war as a Union against a foreign enemy. Secondly, you can't have prosperity unless you're at peace. We're at war.

Mike: All right. To the phones we go on a Free Phone Thursday. First up here today, Katie in North Carolina. Katie, how are you? You’re on the Mike Church Show, Sirius XM Patriot channel. What’s going on?

Katie: Hey, Mike. I love your show. Thanks for having me.

Mike: You’re welcome.

Katie: What I wanted to comment on is how liberals complain constantly about the cost of the war in Iraq, yet this fiscal orgy that we’ve had over the past two and a half years could cost much more than the war in Iraq. And if you look at the predictions for the cost of healthcare and the road we’re going down, it makes the war in Iraq look like peanuts.

Mike: Yeah, the amount of money that has been spent, well, the war in Iraq was not peanuts. It was almost a trillion dollars.

Katie: Yeah, so...

Mike: Well, that taxicab meter is still running. This is why some of this stuff, Katie, is delusional because you’ve got some of these people out there, you’ve got some of these fake phony fraud conservatives out there, all humoring and having President Bush on their radio shows and their TV shows and, you know, talking about all the things that Bush accomplished as President. One of those things is, why, he kept us safe. Why, he did this, and he did all that, and what have you there. Well, he also got us into that Iraq war.

He also claims fidelity to the Constitution, and that’s why he wouldn’t come in and take over Louisiana, which he shouldn’t have, after Hurricane Katrina. But he had no fidelity to the Constitution when it came to declaring wars. He allowed, he signed, he participated in a usurpation of the people’s power. And he participated in that when there was act of military authorization. That is not a declaration of war. Fifty United States go to war as a nation against an enemy that is foreign. That is not what happened. And that’s why that thing turned into the quagmire that it did. And President Bush is – he materially participated in it. Hell, he asked for it. So...

Katie: He did. But they always go back to that statement; and, you know, whether the war, you know, was right or wrong, that’s a whole different conversation. But the fact that that is one of their standing arguments I think is just silly. And then, you know, being from North Carolina...

Mike: Well, but look at it from their point of view, and look at it from, okay, so let’s look at what the spending of a trillion dollars in Iraq engendered then. Okay. You guys are going to get your little military hardware, you DeceptiCons, you neocon freaks. You’re going to get to go bomb Saddam back into the Stone Ages and show the wonders of the U.S. military might, even though we don’t need it, even though there are no weapons of mass destruction. In exchange for that, though, you’re going to expand the domestic spending by the same amount, over a trillion dollars, which is pretty much what happened here. The only difference is that there is a slim possibility that Iraq spending may stop someday. There is no possibility that the domestic spending ever will.
Katie: Yeah, and it was still less expensive than Medicare.

Mike: Which was?

Katie: The war in Iraq. I really – I’m sorry, I’m breaking up. But on a yearly cost analysis, you know, again, the war has been expensive, pretty much unnecessary. But comparatively speaking, if you look at the numbers, it was still less expensive than Medicare.

Mike: Okay. But Katie, Katie, Katie. And you say you’re breaking up, so I’m going to let you go. See, folks, this is the problem here.

This is why conservatives can’t get anything done, and this is why I say the nation is filled with fake, phony, fraud conservatives. I don’t mean to say that Katie’s a fraud, but denial is not a river in Egypt. Don’t tell me that the Iraq war cost a trillion dollars, and we can debate whether or not it should have been fought. It shouldn’t. But that really doesn’t matter. Medicare cost a trillion, too. What do you mean it doesn’t matter? What do you – are we insane? This is nuts.

We have a war going on in Afghanistan right now. Nobody knows, folks, who knows why – “Oh, Mike, we’re there to get the Taliban.” No, we’re not. We are there to continue the military industrial complex spending and, while we’re at it, to in an inhumane, immoral in my estimation, fashion sacrifice the lives of too many young Americans. We’re spending $1.8 billion a week there. The estimates vary. It is absolutely unconscionable what is going on there. Where are the citizens of Libtardia demanding that Obama pull those troops out? Where are they? Where’s Cindy Sheehan laying down in front of the White House, screaming and whooping and hollering about the injustice of war? These people are peaceniks of convenience. They’re only peaceniks when it benefits them politically.

Look, you can’t have prosperity as long as you’re at war, so you should always want peace. This idea here that, “Well, well, Mike, we’ve got this war against terror.” I’m going to go over this again just really quick. I’m not going to spend a lot of time on it. But let me see if you’ve bought into this hook, line, and sinker. This is not to say that there aren’t jihadis out there. There always have been jihadis out there. But maybe we should stop mucking around in their business. Maybe we should stop guaranteeing the Saudi prince a safe passage of his oil through the Straits of Hormuz? Maybe we should stop dealing in the oil business in the Middle East and free up American oil and American gas and American energy. Because we have it here.

Don’t buy this lie, this urban legend that we don’t have resources. We have more resources than any other nation on Earth. We are the Saudi Arabia of Saudi Arabia. We’ve got more oil sitting in Colorado than they have in Saudi Arabia. We’ve got more oil sitting in the Bakken Oil Reserve than they have in Saudi Arabia. There’s more oil off the coast of Alaska and in Alaska, we don’t even know how much oil is there. Don’t give me that crap, we have to have foreign oil. We have to have it because we’ve been told we have to have it. It is a convenience. Again, our federal government has mandated that we have to buy foreign oil. We don’t have to. Why? Because then you have the excuse that, well, we had to remain engaged in the Middle East because they’re our friends, and they have our oil. We don’t need their oil. And we don’t need to be involved in their affairs anymore.

But none of this seems to matter. It matters to some of us. But you go through the exercise here. So you have the protection of the Saudi prince’s oil and all the other assets and what have you. You have the commitment of the United States Navy, the commitment of the Armed Forces and what have you. You have billions of dollars a week going right out the door, engaged in an effort that actually increases the cost of energy for the American public that’s funding and paying for all this. Not only are you getting it through direct taxes, you’re getting it through increased prices for energy at the gas pump, on your light bills, your energy bills, and then everything that’s manufactured here because it all takes energy. I mean, this may be a great secret to some, but it’s not a secret to us here in Louisiana and in Texas that the world’s greatest reserves of natural gas are sitting right out there in the Gulf of Mexico. That’s where they are. We don’t need a drop, don’t need a gram, don’t need a cubic foot of anyone’s energy. Drops, oils; grams, coal; cubic feet, natural gas. Don’t need it. I thought we were so technologically advanced. Why aren’t we building more nuclear power plants, hmm? Because the government says they’re not safe. Because the government says, oh, we’ve got to cave in to these scientists and these environmental tree huggers.

Folks, these are problems of our own making, can all be solved. And we have one entity that stands between solution and between continuing the misery and the deceit, and that is the federal Leviathan. So again I ask the question, why don’t we petition for a divorce? Why do we continue this exercise that we can fix this? Why don’t we just divorce it? That’s why that word “secession” needs to be on everybody’s tongue. That’s why that word “independence” needs to be on everybody’s tongue.

A hugh thanks to my good friend Mike for his imput...

Michelle Obama Diden't Want To Live In Fear: She Should Talk To Chrysler's Hedge Fund Managers

Once again, ladies and gentlemen, we are being gamed. We’re being lied to. We’re being played here. This massive takeover of the financial system, this massive effort here by the brown-shirted Obama jack-booted White House thugs to run around and to demonize and to personally endanger the lives of American citizens .

And I’m not talking about the ones that are fighting in Afghanistan, a war that’s not supposed to be going on, but is. I’m talking about the executives at AIG. I’m talking about the executives at the hedge funds that were called to the mat by name by the President of the United States for personal retribution. You ought to see some of the headlines here today, ladies and gentlemen. “Chris, that could never happen in America.” Oh, really. Really? Not only could it, it is.

The Business Insider reports, last night this was posted, “Hedge Funds Outraged At Obama Bullying But Also Cowering In Fear.” Well, that’s one way to make sure that the economy is vibrant. “Hey Chris, that’s one of the ways that you fix an economy is you beat the people up that have the money, and then they give it to us.” Have you see the commercials for DirecTV where the cable board of directors is sitting around, the one specifically where they’re sitting around, and the guy gets the bright idea that’s running the cable company, hey, people have this thing called disposable income. I know what we’ll do, we’ll raise prices. Yeah. And we’ll get them to dispose it to us. We’ll get them to dispose of the income to us.

I tell you, that’s got to sound a lot like an Obama economic advisor meeting to me. You have the most amazingly amazing economic team in the history of amazingly amazing economic teams. We are going to fix the economy. Now, I seem to recall, ladies and gentlemen, I seem to recall that this President was elected on the promise that he was going to fix the economy. I am not a leftie, he proclaimed. I believe in big business. I believe in free markets. I believe in this and I believe in that. We’re going to give a tax credit to 800 bazillion people across the world. Everybody’s going to get a tax cut. Why, you wait and see. When I get done with the markets, everything’s going to be right as rain. He’s going to fix this; he’s going to fix that.

And what has he done? He has systematically worked tirelessly night and day to try and eradicate the exchange of private capital and to try to bring it under the direction, guidance, and control of the White House. This is unprecedented in the history of the republic. It’s almost unprecedented in the history of the world. Matter of fact, if the Castro brothers hadn’t done it, if Hugo Chavez hadn’t done it, if Mussolini hadn’t done it, if Hitler hadn’t done it, if Mao hadn’t done it, if Brezhnev and Stalin and Lenin hadn’t done it, why, no one else in the world would ever have tried this. Gee, I wonder how it’s going to turn out. Gee, I wonder how it’s going to work. This is shocking.

Heres that commercial I was thinking about, see if this rings a bell...

[Clip] “TV is doing very well in customer satisfaction. What do we do?”

“I learned this in business school. We can’t improve our service. But we can improve the price. We can make it higher.”

“You know what? That’s not a bad idea.”

“We’ll get the people with disposable income, and they can dispose of it to us.”

“And they don’t watch TV. They're workaholics.”

“They wouldn’t know HD if it sat in their lap and called them ‘Mama.’”

All right, that’s [laughing] what it sounds like inside the White House. That’s what Larry Summers and Joe, not only is he the Vice President, but he’s also a member of the Hair Plugs for Men Biden. And you got Tiny Tim Geithner. And they’re all sitting around the table, [mimicking Obama] “All right, how are we going to screw the economy up?” And you hear that. We’ll get the guys with disposable income. We’ll get them to dispose of it to us.

This is no joking matter, though, here, folks. Entire generations are being threatened with this. This train is off the tracks, and I seem to not be able to make people understand this. I’m speaking of the people that you have barbecues and crawfish boils and cocktail parties and weddings and stuff, and you go bowling and hang out and play darts with and what have you. They're just goofing around here. I think what it is, it is what is – it’s what’s known as living in denial. Happens all the time. People don’t want to admit that there’s bad, there’s bad things about, that there’s problems. It’s much easier while you can to just ignore them. And unfortunately that’s what’s going on out there, a lot of people ignoring them. They want to believe in this young, handsome President, that he could fix these things. Well, let me tell you, the jury should be in by now. Not whether he – but this is the worst part of it, the worst part of the deception. Not only is he not going to fix it, he’s not trying to fix it. He is trying by definition of his actions to break it, to exacerbate it and make it worse.

So back to Mr. Asness. “I run an approximately $20 billion money management firm that offers hedge funds as well as public mutual funds and unhedged traditional investments. My company is not involved in the Chrysler situation, but I am still aghast at the President’s comments. Of course these are my own views, and not those of my company,” he writes. “Furthermore, for some reason I was not born with the common sense to keep it to myself, though my title should more accurately be called "Not Afraid Enough" as I am indeed fearful writing this.” Now, can you imagine this? Man is sitting there in his office, a capitalist. And he’s scared to death that if he puts pen to paper, that the brain-dead, Obamabot zombie, Acorn-sponsored, jack-booted, brown-shirted with the little “o” insignia on their sleeve thugs are going to come after him? Show up at his house? Show up at his place of business? Demonize his investments? Single him out for retribution? This is how freedom works??

Anyways, back to Mr. Asness. “It’s really a bad idea to speak out,” he concludes. “Angering the President is a mistake, and my views will annoy half my clients. I hope my clients will understand that I’m entitled to my voice and to speak it loudly, just as they are in this great country. I hope they will also like that I do not think I have the right to intentionally ‘sacrifice’ their money without their permission.” Now, I told you two days ago that this was the crux of the argument here. These hedge fund guys weren’t holding out for a bailout or whatever the hell Obama said they were. They were holding out to protect their private investors, you and I, should our money be in their mutual funds or their hedge funds. They were trying to protect private property. Now, the Chrysler UAW guys don’t have any private property. They have taxpayer-subsidized property. And the President says, famously, “I stand with them.” Oh, really. So it sounds to me like Mr. Asness is living in fear. Now, let’s hear what Dear Leader First Lady Obama said way back in the campaign about living in fear.

[Clip] Michelle Obama: I am tired of living in a country where every decision that we’ve made over the last 10 years wasn’t for something, but it was because people told us we had to fear something. We had to fear people who looked different from us, fear people who believed in things that were different from us. Fear of one another right here in our own backyards. I am so tired of fear. And I don’t want my girls to live in a country and a world based on fear.

I will personally take a fund up and chip in for the one-way airfare for Michelle Obama and the girls to go live in a country where there is no fear, where there’s nothing but national healthcare and Utopia. It’s called Cuba. What? I didn’t say anything radical. She said she didn’t want to live in fear. I’m trying to help her out here. Now, back to Mr. Asness, “Hedge Funds Outraged At Obama Bullying But Also Cowering In Fear.” Because we can’t have fear, remember? This was the reason for electing Dear Leader, the Obamabot brain-dead zombies said. The hopie-dopie-changie crowd said, “Chris, he is post-partisan. He is post-racial. This guy is not going to bring fear. He’s going to bring sunshine.”

Oh, I feel better already, dont you all??

The Patriot Act is Not Conservative

If Americans needed another reminder of why the Democratic Party is absolutely worthless, they got it during last week’s Patriot Act extension debate when Senate Majority leader Harry Reid again behaved exactly like the Bush-era Republicans he once vigorously opposed. In 2005, Reid bragged to fellow Democrats, “We killed the Patriot Act.” Today, Reid says that anyone who opposes the Patriot Act might be responsible for the killing of Americans. Dick Cheney now hears an echo and Americans deserve congressional hearings—as to whether Harry Reid is a sociopath, mere liar, or both.

Universal Healthcare is SLAVERY

Supporters of Universal Healthcare want to impose an individual mandate on all working Americans. By doing this, they are sanctioning slavery on the American People. On 09/09/09, President Obama addressed the Congress and the nation, stating that individuals would be required to purchase healthcare. Anyone who does not will be fined up to $1,900, thrown in prison, and fined an additional $25,000. This is a perfect example of government tyranny, and is more properly termed, "fascism." In any program designed to help others, there is always an option to withdraw or not participate. A person who doesn’t want to buy auto insurance can opt not to drive a car. A person who doesn’t want house insurance can rent instead of buying a house. In the case of healthcare, a tax is placed on the right to LIFE itself. We should remember that even the slavemasters of old were interested in the healthiness of their slaves. A person who cannot opt out is not free—he or she is nothing but a slave. Socialist programs like Social Security, Medicare, and the Draft all result in slavery or involuntary servitude. Now is the time to uphold the 13th Amendment by defeating Unconstitutional Healthcare.
