Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in Socialism

Back in the old days there used to be a Democrat party (blue dog Dems) that where different from the GOP in that they tried to be charitable with YOUR money in giving others “freebies”. That was pretty much the difference between the two parties. Reagan came along and re-instilled values and responsibilities in government. Not perfect but absolutely on the road to recovery. Bill Clinton even helped to further some initiatives that instilled respect and responsibilities in the citizenry (no, I am not talking about Clinton as a role model). Then things started going way south

Remember the hippie days of the late 60′s and the “revolution”? That upset the apple cart. Radicals hated the government and did things to change societies’ mindset of how things should be. They started infecting things like our school systems and Congress by taking seats in these institutions. It has gone downhill from that point. This country became bad and everything that would stood for was bad. Within these institutions they have been successful in indoctrinating the jelly brained. They where capable of getting the MSM on board to further their war on America. The sole idea is to shame others into getting your way. Not because it is value added but because it “feels good and right”. Mental institutions are closed, criminals are released from prison or not even captured because these criminals are just misguided and need a second chance to straighten out. Or third chance, fourth chance, fifth chance,…… These people need and deserve their freedom, or so we are told. Everyone in the world that can’t make a go of it in their own country or refuse to change their own system, DESERVE AND HAVE THE RIGHT to come to our country because we are the world’s honey-pot and these people are owed (or so we are told). You read the news. Unless your head is in the sand, you have seen this happening for decades. If you bought into this ideology then you are the problem.

Many, many years ago and many posts past I warned of where society was going and the “head” which was inevitable. It is here. Now. Many people have Trump syndrome and it has absolutely allowed this Dem…..I will not say they are Dems but rather insane radical socialists…..group to completely go off the rails. Common sense have left most of society and God, morals and ethics have long vacated the premises (actually pushed out of society through shame and guilt). I wasn’t a Trump convert till he won the primary. I also don’t like many things he does but, then again, I am fair across the board in my beliefs. What he has done is bring us from the brink and put pride back into this country. Problem being the radicals can’t get their way because his President doesn’t stand for this nonsense and pushes back. What can the radicals do? VIOLENCE!!!

I absolutely cannot believe what I am seeing on the news nor can I understand how blatantly biased and ignorant the MSM is. The MSM continue to make, build and push the narrative that “good” is bad and “evil” is the American way. Here is where things have gone. I am armed at all times. If I am touched, spit on, have things thrown at me, whistle or bullhorn blown in my ear, I will fight back. This is assault on me and will not be tolerated. Too many others think exactly the same as I. We are being assaulted by terrorists and they hide behind their rights when it suits them but continue to step over the line when it comes to YOUR rights. So many radical rallies by the left where they state “there will be blood”. Well, there should be dialogue but the left continues to stifle or shut that down. They think this is the forefront of a new revolution (RESIST?) but, it appears, they haven’t thought things out. They are relying on “good people” being timid (weren’t they the ones that started this “bullying” initiative everywhere?) so that they can reign their terror unopposed. God teaches, my parents taught and so did society in general: actions have consequences. I don’t think these radicals understand that but there will be a lesson to be learned. Shame. I don’t relish a civil war in this country but that is what is being pushed.

There are liable laws; inciting laws; disorderly conduct laws; harassment laws and assault laws. We need to start enforcing them. Boycott institutions that tear at the fabric of a good society. Shutdown venues that incite radical and disorderly conduct. Incarcerate those that promote terror and violence. We need to take his country back from the loons. Mental institutions need to be built and utilized. We can cure the hunger and homeless in this country. We haven’t tried to cure the stupid. Take back our schools with competent teachers and don’t allow your children to attend “radical” institutions of “higher learning”. There aren’t many real institutions left to learn from. Bottom line is that nothing is going to change until the violent radicals have blood in the streets, which is their wish. Be careful what you wish for!!!

First, I hope President Trump has learned a lesson from the Shithole Shitstorm — don’t trust demonrats. I you have a closed-door, off-the-record meeting with them, they will get together after the fact and manufacture lies about what happened in the meeting. NEVER have a closed-door, off-the-record meeting with demonrats.

So, they lie about what he said, then say that it was racist.

But how can that be?

If they take saying that Haiti, Nicaragua, and various African countries are shitholes as racist, then THEY are asserting that those countries are shitholes because the race of the people in them.

THAT is racist.

But the whole reason we have so many people trying to get here from those shithole counties is because they are shitholes. That’s why we have a problem of illegal immigration from those countries in the first place.

We had waves of immigrants from Europe when the National Socialists made that a shithole. We had waves of immigrants from the Warsaw Pact countries when the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics made them shithole countries. We have had a wave of immigrants from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Are you seeing a pattern here? It’s not race that makes a country a shithole. It’s SOCIALISM.

Indeed, it seems that most science is not settled.

If science that actually follows the Scientific Method — with repeatable experiments and control groups — can be so “un-settled”, how can climate “science”, with no experiments whatsoever, and no control groups whatsoever, possibly be “settled”?

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.

In the oral arguments of King v. Burwell, Justice Ginsburg brought up the question of “standing”:

A plaintiff “has to have a concrete stake in the question,” Ginsburg said, interjecting almost as soon as Carvin began his argument. She noted that two of the plaintiffs had served in the military, one would soon turn 65 and be eligible for Medicare, and the fourth could qualify for a hardship exemption and not be required to pay the individual-mandate penalty.

Carvin countered that the lower courts had not raised a standing issue.

“But the Court has an obligation to look into on its own,” Ginsburg said. Carvin asserted that at least one of the plaintiffs did have standing before Ginsburg allowed him to move on to the merits of the case. (National Journal)

So what I want to know is, why doesn’t every taxpayer in the country have standing in cases like this?

So, the Калифорния legislature passed a bill restricting government surveillance with drones. Gov. “Moonbeam” Brown vetoed it.

Check out the stupidity:

Brown said in a statement that the bill appears to be too narrow and could go beyond what the state and federal constitutions would prohibit.

“There are undoubtedly circumstances where a warrant is appropriate,” he wrote. “The bill’s exceptions, however, appear to be too narrow and could impose requirements beyond what is required by either the 4th Amendment or the privacy provisions in the California Constitution.”

Uh, Guvn’r, if the bill didn’t put tighter restrictions on your misuse of drones than the U.S. and Калифорния Constitutions require, there would be NO DAMNED POINT TO THE BILL AT ALL.

So we have a state election for the top candidates and the zombies (that would be mindless/low information voters) elect 2.5 sleazy candidates. McAwful was right up front on his socialist intentions. Herring made assertions to pander to a select voting block. He informed that block that he would work to CHANGE the law (a constitutional amendment). Unfortunately, instead of doing it the legal way and upholding his newly sworn oath as the chief law guru for the state, he pulls a Holder and gets to decide what he will and will not enforce. Check it out. So he lied to reach his position. Now he is refusing to do his job. Perfect.

And meanwhile, the lefties are all about ruining their enemies’ lives, like what they are doing to McDonnell. Unfortunately, what McDonnell did was not against the law in Virginia. Who else do we know who got hung for NO wrong doing. I’m not saying that it doesn’t appear personally unethical, but that doesn’t make it a crime. Just change the rules. The lefties know this and that is why there is a FEDERAL indictment, where there is no jurisdiction. Sound familiar still? Well, aside your personal feelings on this, is this any worse than these clowns? I mean really, what’s the stink? Hmmmm?
