Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in Obamanation

When traditionalists would argue that marriage should only be between one man and one woman and that opening marriage up to two people of the same sex would lead to polyandry, the response was that we were being ridiculous. Well, now that the SCOTUS has ruled that every state must recognize such unions, there are now groups that are now calling for – yep, you guessed it – POLYAMORY. Here is an article from a leftist publication that has already called for it.

The long term solution for the individual states will be for states to simply get out of the marriage business. Period! I disagree with Mike Huckabee’s view that we should continue to fight for traditional marriage. That horse left the barn with the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and is a losing battle at this point.

Yes, this is a true story

I wrote about this issue over a year and a half ago on this board (click here to read it) when I predicted that the SCOTUS would indeed rule that same sex unions are legal in all 50 states. (Not bragging. That wasn’t difficult for anyone looking at the tea leaves)

Indeed, Obama has kept his promise to “fundamentally transform the United States.” We now live in a nation where a man can be called a “woman” (nay, they DEMAND you do so); where a person can change their race from white to black; where entire groups of people will marry each other; and it will essentially be illegal to be white. No wonder young whites want to change their race.

This time it is to the graduating class of the Coast Guard Academy. He keeps spewing this BS to the academies, rather than addressing these men and women future roles in the security of our sovereign nation. No, he is going to bore them to death with his idiotic quest to save the planet from “climate change”. Why? Because he made a ridiculous promise to the mindless, idiotic minions that elected him a second time that he would do this. Just goes to show how brain dead some people are. I have always known this and meet these useless blobs of flesh on a daily basis. I find it disgusting, with all the real issues affecting our country, that this individual, who is suppose to be intelligent, continues to lie, be irrational, promote unqualified or substantiated data on this subject. Personally I find him grating and just wish the TV would stop showing his picture or transmitting his voice. If you can see and/or hear him, then it is nothing but lies and BS.

Baltimore City is the next police department being put under federal scrutiny. This time it was requested by the Mayor of Baltimore who, earlier, decided that justice needed to be served for the death of Freddy Gray (who had quite an arrest record) while in the “custody” of her police department. The same mayor who gave rioters carte blanche to destroy. She then initiates a curfew for her out-of-control action, puts her police force at great risk and in harm’s way, calls in Al Sharpton and then accuses her officers of murder in the death of Gray.
What have I forgotten? Oh, yeah, the professional rioters and agitators from out of state will be sought and prosecuted…..sometime in the future or, commonly known TBA. Something else……..oh, yeah. There is corruption in the police department and THAT is why the DOJ was asked to investigate. Holder wouldn’t have needed to be asked because he loves to stick his nose in state business. I can’t find a direct number of butt-in-skis for the police departments he intended to dismantle or straighten up but I’m sure it is stuck somewhere in this back patting tome of accomplishments. Regardless, why is the fed involving itself into state issues? It is up to the state and courts to deal with internal issues. Now the DOJ under Holder won’t prosecute Black Panthers (Negroes) but he will prosecute any white on black (Caucasian on Negro) act, regardless of the circumstances OR jurisdiction. But this has nothing to do with race. Neither did Fergusson. Nor Baltimore. It is all just about “Constitutional?” justice, right? Right.

First of all, greetings to everyone. I have been having some serious health challenges of late that have kept me busy – on top of daily life.

That said, I am very saddened to see the state our our union these days. Make no mistake. There are elements in DC that have promoted and fomented the type of behavior that we are witnessing in various cities nowadays. An example of this is when a looter told a CNN reporter that they were “taking back what is rightfully theirs”.

The idea that businesses and business people (such as CVS) have been “taking” from the common people is taught to these young people. This is why they feel justified to riot. Then on top of that, they are treated as heroes by social justice warriors (SJWs) on social media and even in certain parts of the mainstream media.

Here are some examples of the undocumented shopping in Baltimore and the dystopian future of the United States

Nothing like free toilet paper (and other stuff)

Undocumented shopper

Undocumented shopper. Chips and sugar laden soda. It’s a “food desert”. Organic grocers need to open there, so that the undocumented shoppers can take better food.

And just imagine that all this happened while the hardened thugs were still asleep

Wonder why toilet paper was such a popular item? Do they roll blunts with them?

The safest place in west Baltimore today was the library

Look. If you don’t understand this poor, wayward youth, read this article by the NY Times. It even explains that they didn’t know how he got captured. His fellow soldiers knew. The 6 that died looking for him or trying to retrieve him knew. And I am sure the Obama administration knew for they had plans to use this traitor pawn.
So he gets charged for desertion, as well he should. He gets charged with misbehavior. Funny term because of think of kids cutting up in school or at home. Why not just use the term treason. With these charges, Bergdahl is free to roam and ski or shoot his guns while waiting to decide how to go forward. You can see I used the NY Times for both articles to keep it congruent. The article says that the defense department doesn’t want to see him incarcerated. He may not even get a dishonorable discharge, loss of rank or forfeiture of accrued pay while held “captive” ( which is a term I use very loosely and don’t believe). To refresh: he willfully left his post and sought out the enemy. Fellow soldiers died on his behalf. 5 deadly jihadis released in “trade” for poor Sgt. Traitor Bergdahl. And he has suffered enough? No death penalty? No consequences save having to live with some type of conscience where he may hold a smidgen of guilt? More Obama influence and justice maybe? I leave it to you to decide.

The text of the law is clear

SEC. 1401. REFUNDABLE TAX CREDIT PROVIDING PREMIUM ASSISTANCE FOR COVERAGE UNDER A QUALIFIED HEALTH PLAN.

……………

(8)(2) PREMIUM ASSISTANCE AMOUNT.—The prem-
ium assistance amount determined under this sub-
section with respect to any coverage month is the
amount equal to the lesser of—

(A) the monthly premiums for such month
for 1 or more qualified health plans offered in
the individual market within a State which
cover the taxpayer, the taxpayer’s spouse, or any
dependent (as defined in section 152) of the tax-
payer and which were enrolled in through an
Exchange established by the State under 1311 of
the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,

or
(B) the excess (if any) of—
(i) the adjusted monthly premium for
such month for the applicable second lowest
cost silver plan with respect to the taxpayer,
over
(ii) an amount equal to 1/12 of the
product of the applicable percentage and the
taxpayer’s household income for the taxable
year.

It looks, at first glance, that part A does not obtain, since there is no such exchange, and so there is only part B.  However, lower down, part B is clarified:

(8)(3)(B) APPLICABLE SECOND LOWEST COST
SILVER PLAN.—The applicable second lowest cost
silver plan with respect to any applicable tax-
payer is the second lowest cost silver plan of the
individual market in the rating area in which
the taxpayer resides which—
(i) is offered through the same Ex-
change through which the qualified health
plans taken into account under paragraph
8 (2)(A) were offered….

That’s definitely a problem.  Neither of the two possible pricing options to determine the subsidy exists.

Some pundits have said it comes down to ONE word, “by”, not four words, “established by the State.”  The fact is, it is FOURTEEN words: “established by the State under 1311 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”

The Federal Exchange is defined in section 1103, not 1311.

So what will the Supremes do?

Well, we know the progs on the bench will ignore the law — progs don’t care about laws.  (Well, they don’t care about laws they don’t like.  If they like a law, they’ll dig in like a tick on a hound.)  So the progs will rule to uphold the subsidies, and the conservatives will vote to uphold the law as written.

I expect the swing votes to go to the progs.  Why?  Because they have shown no integrity.  When Roberts ruled that the penalty is NOT a tax and thus the Supremes can rule on it before anyone actually pays it, then rule that it IS a tax and thus it is constitutional (the first time the Supremes have overturned a prior decision in the same decision), he has signaled to the world that he has no logical integrity, and is thus really a prog.  He will rule to uphold the subsidies and write up another steaming pile to support that ruling.

This seems to be what the BATFE is trying to push off upon those ignorant masses called American citizens. Townhall picked up on this and reported it here. (NOTE: The report date of 2014 is in error. The guidelines are for starting date of January 2015.) So is this an error or just another end around from the Obama administration? When are these people going to be held accountable? When will they be fired and permanently banned from working for or with the U.S. Government? When will they be IMPRISONED? I would ask when they would be executed but the government and the liberals don’t have the stomach for Capitol punishment because they may be caught in the web themselves. Imagine that. Anyway, with his new enlightenment to the general public, do you really think that the public comment period is going to have any impact on the already “conclusive” decision the ATF has made to ban this ammunition? Can you say “fat chance”.
