Gillespie Serves It Dry In A Fonzie Jacket

Nick Gillespie is always calm when explaining what should seem obvious, at least to a non-Progressive:

Morrissey at Hot Air is difficult to refute:

This, I believe, will be the “big f******g deal” for the Supreme Court, and perhaps not just the Scalia wing, either. The removal of this barrier on federal government intrusion makes the Constitution meaningless, and sets the precedent that any real or perceived health-care crisis would allow Congress to act. Just wait until they start looking at obesity with these new powers. We’re already seeing cities and states pass ridiculous laws about having no toys in Happy Meals and barring the use of certain fats in restaurant cooking. When the federal government solidifies ObamaCare powers through an approving Supreme Court decision, get ready for the stepmother of all nanny states to arise.

Read the whole Hot Air post, with some interesting contract law asides.

I submit that what is significant about ObamaCare is that it’s the last remaining piece in FDR’s diabolical re-write of the Bill of Rights:Never have so few words tinkled the ears of so many, while achieving results so opposite their apparent intent.

ObamaCare arrived at the time the country is financially, economically, and rhetorically exhausted. The Senate can’t pass a budget, but a Democ**t Senator can call for a sports investigation. More importantly, these Orwellian nitwits cannot control the news cycle, so propaganda plays such as Sandra Fluke and the race baiting in the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy are not going unnoticed. The whole system is tragically, stupidly, inexorably crashing.

Aside: I had hoped to cover the ObamaCare protests in DC yesterday and on Tuesday: conflicts in both cases. As dearly as I love blogging, it just can’t be my highest priority in life.

    And don’t think the fact that the likely GOP nominee is responsible for Obamacare’s pilot program is lost on Kennedy.

    Based on recent reports (not actually recently, but original reporting apparently ignored in the rush to create a favored narrative) it appears that Martin may have been the one who initiated the violence.

    If so the only tragedy is a hot headed teen learning that rushing to a violent solution often ends badly in the most certain and final way possible.
