Old, Odd Fuddy-Duddys And Anyone Else Who Digs Liberty: Hie Thee To The East Lawn At High Noon On 24 March

Title alludes to Daily Pundit’s alternative suggestion for naming this blog. I like ‘The McCain Mutiny’, but once you’ve been indexed by Google, you don’t want to go making changes.

By the same token, once you’ve been annexed by the Progressive Borg, for something like ObamaCare, it gets very hard to undo. Which makes this:

The Road to Repeal Rally will take place on the East Lawn of the Capitol, right across the street (1st St NE) from the Supreme Court Building. The rally will begin at 12pm noon and will conclude at 2pm. Speakers and Coalition Partners to be announced soon.

. . .of paramount importance.

Let’s bring it, and in quantity. One can reasonably expect #OccupyResoluteDesk’s little henchmen to make mischief and mockery of law-abiding exercise of the 1st Amendment. But, more to the point, anyone who can needs to ensure that, irrespective of the outcome, they did the most they could to save the republic.

Road to Repeal

    It was brought to my attention that my choice of blog post title in linking to this story was maybe not the best choice. But in my opinion, I was thinking that perhaps we need to take back the real meaning of words, eh? We can’t let the damn Liberals take over the proper definitions of words.

    Because in reality, those who attend this gathering will be occupying space on the East Lawn of the Capitol Building, am I right?

     What brings greater peace than when a leftist’s skull meets the sweet spot?

    It’s like the True Harmonic Convergence.

    Good luck to all and appreciate you going, but if the Court rules properly that the mandate isn’t a tax and is unconstitutional, the lack of the standard severability clause must require the entire thing be invalidated.

    If it weren’t the case, then why does every other bill Congress has passed in our lifetimes and before include the clause?

    WTF happened here?  Did ya’ll go collectively nuts?  Violence only works if you win.
