by Skip June 30, 2012

I just couldn’t stop coming back to this headline:

by Skip June 30, 2012

Over at Fox: Supreme Court upholds ObamaCare and Americans have lost the right to be left alone Regardless of what I wrote here concerning the Commerce Clause (it is now longer unlimited) and that Federalism has been strengthened (roping in Federal coercion of the States by  ransoming monies that came from the States in exchange […]

Marilinda Garcia – In Support of a Veto Override on HB 1679

by Steve MacDonald June 29, 2012

After the Union Leader tricked me yesterday (corrected here), I felt compelled to share the actual remarks from Republican House Rep Marilinda Garcia, in her support to overturn the Veto on HB 1679, the ban on Partial Birth Abortion in New Hampshire. As I should have known all along, she and I are in complete […]

Obama Shows He’s a CRASS Act – Barry and Joe are More Alike Than You Thought!

by Mike June 29, 2012

On the day of the Supreme Court decision which marginally upholds ObamaCare by permitting the government to tax a NON-activity, our man-child president could not resist gloating, once more presenting Republicans with a target-rich environment, if we can just stop the circular firing squad for long enough! This gem is actually on sale at the […]

The emergence of Chief Justice John Roberts….

by Tim Condon June 29, 2012

The Obamacare decision crafted by Chief Justice Roberts…may be the best of all possible outcomes, including striking the whole thing down as unconstitutional. I’ve been mulling the decision over since it was announced yesterday, and have had the persistent feeling that…something is going on here that is not clear. It’s been a nagging suspicion I’ve had […]

Holder in Contempt

by Steve MacDonald June 29, 2012

The other ‘big’ story from yesterday was the House vote to hold Attorney General Eric “Guns” Holder in contempt of the House.  He was and is in contempt. The left, lead by Nancy Pelosi, continued to spin it as a partisan political stunt, though coming from her that means nothing.  Democrats are committed to making […]

A new name for Obamacare? And other Obamacare random thoughts

by Skip June 28, 2012

A little thing, perhaps, but this caught my eye over at Betsy’s Page: Now that Obamacare has become Obamatax… After all, the Supremes (a la Chief Justice Roberts made it so) have made it simply a taxing offense (“According to the CBO, the Obamatax may amount to $1.7 trillion over a decade.”)… ******* A friend […]

Quick Thought on the Supreme Decision on Obamacare

by Skip June 28, 2012

Updated Thought:  Roberts is getting a lot of grief for siding with the Liberal Supremes and finding that Obamacare was Constitutional under the taxing ability of Congress.  Putting aside the argument that the tax language originated in the Senate (instead of the House where Constitutionally it must originate), I’m mulling over the idea, given other […]

I Could Hardly Be Happier…

by Steve MacDonald June 28, 2012

There were only two outcomes from the Supreme Court that would be useful on the Patiend Affordable Care Act.  Complete repeal, or sustaining ObamaCare essentially unchanged.  The Supreme Court chose the latter, more or less.  And this is fine by me. America hates this bill.  A majority of states hate it.  Independents hate it.  But […]

Mandate Struck, But Not So Fast.

by Steve MacDonald June 28, 2012

The much anticipated Supreme Court decision on the poorly named Patient Affordable Care Act has arrived.  Poorly written, poorly defended, and now poorly decided. Obamacare cannot be constitutional under the commerce clause.  This strikes the mandate.   But….if it is re-written as a tax, it could pass muster.  So Congress can tax business for its law, […]

Toadie? Or bootlicker?

by Skip June 27, 2012

From The Corner: NPR’s Horsley: By the time the President finished speaking, the rain had stopped, and a little sunshine was peeking through the clouds. That gave David O’Donnell of Portsmouth one more reason to be impressed with Mr. Obama. Rally Participant O’Donnell: See what his voice does? It clears up the weather, too. It […]

A thought on Veto Day and SB 289 – “AN ACT relative to presenting photo identification to vote in person.”

by Skip June 27, 2012

While there is a part of me that is going “Yeah, this may cut off some of the Democrat ‘advantage’ at election time” but that’s not why I am glad this has passed –  The reason is for a more open and more TRUSTWORTHY part of Government – a voter now has to present a […]

Shaheen On Wildfires…You Can Smell The Hypocrisy (From Day 1)

Politician’s Intentions

by Don June 27, 2012

The letter below by Tony Boutin makes some excellent points about government actions and education in particular.  It appeared in the June 22, 2012, Laconia Daily Sun, http://issuu.com/dailysun/docs/lds6-22-12 While I agree with the author that politicians claim good intentions for all government actions driven by their policies, some politicians never seem to learn that the […]

At a bar last night my friend Bill and I overheard a secret conversation.
