Justices Impersonating Accountants

by Smitty Kagan went on to say that other U.S. businesses are “voluntarily” dropping their health insurance coverage for employees. “You know Hobby Lobby is paying something right now for the — for the coverage,” Kagan said. “It’s less than what Hobby Lobby is paying for the coverage. There are employers all over the United […]

The @AmandaMarcotte Birth Control ObamaCare Fear-Mongering Crusade

Donald Douglas points out that everyone’s favorite baby-killing enthusiast has found a new focus for her feminist lunatic rage, namely a pending Supreme Court case about the ObamaCare mandate that insurers must provide free contraceptive coverage. Before addressing Amanda Marcotte’s irrational claims directly, let me ask: Does anyone else remember the Iraq War military draft […]

The Fanatic Disciples of Equality

The top 13 threads this morning at Memeorandum are about the Supreme Court arguments over same-sex marriage — the latest items being by Dana Milbank and Megan McArdle — and it’s tedious beyond words simply because it’s so far above our pay-grade. This is a pageant of the elite. Once the Nine Robed Ones agreed to […]

A Constitutional Right to Donkey Sex?

Lisa Graas remembers how Rick Santorum was ridiculed for saying that the same logic that justifies gay marriage as a “right” could also justify legalized bestiality. Many at the time mocked Santorum as a bigoted yahoo. Yet the Republican presidential hopeful was merely expressing what Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia had warned of when, in dissenting from the court’s […]

Supreme Court Chief Justice-At-Large Nathan Jessup Re-interprets The ObamaCare Decision

by Smitty “Americans, we live in a world that has entitlements, and those entitlements have to be guarded by bureaucrats, with legislation. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Mr. Teapartier? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Liberty, and you curse the Progressives. You have that luxury. You have […]

SCOTUS Chief Justice-At-Large Paul Anka Rejected ObamaCare For Lack Of Integrity

by Smitty [There has been a lot of curiosity about the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that triggered the SCOTUS to shift the ObamaCare penalty to a tax. This blog has recovered a secret transcript of the deliberations with SCOTUS Chief Justice-at-Large Paul Anka, as he led the Supreme Court to enlightenment.] Anka: “First order of business: no […]

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Dick Morris Thinks ObamaCare, Tim Kaine, And ObamaNomics Are Swell

by Smitty Oh, wait: make that ‘Swill‘. First day, new ears. Yesterday morning I took in the Americans for Prosperity event over in Sterling, up the road from Dulles Airport. Dick Morris was the marquee speaker. If you have only time for one clip, Watch The Last One. In the background of these, raising a […]

Life Sucks: Supreme Court Upholds ObamaCare and … It’s Moving Day

Also, Rick Locke has Stage 3 lung cancer, as if we didn’t have enough wretched bummers to go around today, huh? Headlines from Memeorandum: Supreme Court upholds health care law – MSNBC Health care ruling: Individual mandate upheld by Supreme Court – Politico Supreme Court Lets Health Law Largely Stand – New York Times No joy […]

Wonder If Anything Important Happens At The SCOTUS Today?

by Smitty Stacy has been too occupied of late to bequeath his wisdom upon the country. Today, hopefully, will be our Progressive nadir. The point were we read Madison in Federalist #62: It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws […]

SCOTUS ObamaCare Office-Pool Bet

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION The thing about being dug in on a story — in the six weeks since May 17, I’ve done 61 entries in “The Kimberlin Files” — is that you ignore a lot of what would otherwise be Urgent Breaking News. Late last night, I was checking Ace of Spades HQ, and […]

You’d Think A Supreme Court Justice Would Know This

by Smitty Somebody pointed me to the New England Journal of Medicine, with an interesting Elena Kagan quote from last week’s oral argument, emphasis mine: Roberts also noted a mismatch between covered benefits and each person’s potential need. Speaking to the government’s lawyer, he said, “[T]he policies that you’re requiring people to purchase involve . […]

The Cold Civil War

by Smitty My current commute is ~45 minutes. I like to use that time to check in with Stacy, and continue the attempts to guide him along paths of TweeDeck righteousness. We’ll get him there. I also like to chat up my dad, a retired Navy E-7 with a GED who may or may not […]
