Waiting for Thursday

The Supreme Court announced some decisions this morning.  The Arizona case was partially upheld.  police can ask for papers. The wise latina Sotomayor concurred with that point.

The court announce that it would announce a decision on Obamacare this Thursday.  I'll bet the O's administration was hoping for a decision today so as to knock Fast and Furious out of mind.

  1. B.O. and his Administration deserve all of the agony that they have brought upon themselves. The rest of us deserve none of it! The wheels of America are spinning, out of control. We must regain traction, which will not begin to happen until November!

  2. "The Arizona case was [yawn] partially upheld."
    Local law enforcement can NOW check the legality of a person's presence in the U.S. if circumstances deem it. If found to be here illegally, that person must then be turned over to federal authorities. In other words (yawn again,) "Catch and Release."

  3. "Catch and Release" This is clearly a stimulus plan---generating thousands of jobs for hot-line operators,lawyers,a new segment of ICE assigned to oversee actions of the Border Patrol agents, and of course the advocates to "ease" the transition of those caught and released.
    As if Arizona didn't have enough trouble already....what a mess.

  4. I could solve Arizona's problems... just like we did in Nam when when somebody wanted on our side of the fence. The next morning you tore what's left of 'em out of the wire, line 'em up on the road and give the next of kin 'till noon to come drag their stinking carcasses back to their respective vills. Whatever didn't get claimed, got bulldozed. Amazing how quick it took for people to decide they didn't want to be on our side of the wire.

  5. If the "Omisitration" is asking for your wedding gifts, you KNOW they are pressuring the Supreme Court to go their way.

  6. Someone suggested 10 miles of "no man land" on the border. If it were "open season" on anyone not law enforcement within that area, our Border Patrol Agents would be safer and within a short period of time no one would be caught "dead" in that area. Of course that will happen when pigs fly.

    Tom, I've heard lots of people say the judges have been paid off. That is a dangerous game. If people lose confidence in every part of government, they will take it in their own hands.
    Here is an interesting 15 minute movie entitled " The Battle of Athens." The first 1.7 minutes is narrative, then the movie.

    Maybe this is why Homeland Security thinks veterans are potential terrorists.

  7. It is true that I am awaiting Thursday, however, what I think we all want to see get here quickly is November 6th!

    1. I am thinking more like the 9th. By then maybe all the protests will be doused.

  8. rant on/ Here's the thing- consitutional or not, taken as a whole Obamacare is a bad idea. It is bad public policy, fiscally unsustainable, and poorly constructed as a piece of legislation. Congress had no idea what they were passing (e.g. Nancy "pass the bill to see what's in it" Pelosi); instead they threw everything including the kitchen sink into a "comprehensive" bill that gives the Executive Branch (HHS) broad and almost unlimited control over one of the biggest industries in the country. If it is deemed unconstitutional, rest assured that the next time the Democrat party has control of both houses of Congress that they will pass an even more socialist healthcare package, i.e. National Health Service. Irrespective of how much evidence there that top down centralized planning does not work effectively on any kind of large scale and the constant cascade of unintended consequences, the progressives will continue their march down that failed path. If, on the other hand, the bill is upheld and implemented, the private insurance industry will collapse and/or be absorbed by HHS within a few years (probably the ultimate end game of the left anyway). Quality of actual health care at the point of delivery will decline. Overall healthcare spending will not go down. The left will not surrender, or ever admit they are in the wrong on this issue. The battle does not end on Thursday, whichever way the high court rules. /rant off
