Activist Federal Judge: ObamaKKKare Death Panels Are Constitutional

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Kenya 1, Freedom 0

  • In perhaps the most important decision since Roe v. Wade or maybe even Thomas Jefferson v. Illegitimate Slave Children, a federal judge upheld Barack Obama’s sinister “health insurance for everyone” death pyramid scheme. Legal scholars around the world are puzzled as to why the judge ruled in favor of Communism and against the patriot-plaintiffs, a “Christian legal group and four people” (who are not Christians?). But oh well, Barack Obama’s evil law forcing every American to have health insurance by 2014 (and fining people for skipping coverage) is legal! There is a case just like this one currently being argued in basically every single state, so the hope is that maybe a judge with half a brain will rule in favor of impeaching Obama. [AP]
  • Joe Miller has serious credit card debt, and also a sizable student loan that needs to be repaid. Maybe he should stop being such a sourpuss and just endorse Sarah Palin for President? Then Todd could send an email to Joe’s lender explaining how Mr. Miller has been “working all morning on repaying that student loan, but now he’s never going to do it because he’s running for Senate.” [McClatchy]
  • A new CBS poll says Republicans have widened their lead in the “generic ballot,” which sounds pretty vague. [CBS]

    October surpises are surprising.

  • Katydid

    Without the minimum coverage provision, there would be an incentive for some individuals to wait to purchase health insurance until they needed care, knowing that insurance would be available at all times," the judge said.

    And then we'd have to let their houses burn down.

    • JustPixelz

      As understand Christianity, we'd have to let their houses burn down because doing the right thing is always right (wink, wink) thing.

  • chascates

    I suspect the 'generic ballot' is some like:
    Are you unhappy with things and aren't sure whom to blame?

    • JustPixelz

      Repubicans had control of Congress for all those years, the White House during the Bush Eternity, the Supreme Court since forever … they just didn't have enough time to git 'er done.

      Whaddya say, should we give the Repubicans another shot at it?

      • JMPEsq

        As long as there's still some people left in the middle class, the Republicans' job is incomplete.

  • 4TheTurnstiles

    This country is such a buzzkill sometimes.

  • freakishlywrong

    That picture is very disturbing. I wish you’d have chosen something else. I realize that it’s a shameful part of American history that we should never forget, but it’s too much.

    • SmutBoffin

      '+1' for nostalgic post.

    • GOPCrusher

      Several Tea Baggers that I've sent that picture to, have informed me that picture was created by Democrats looking to discredit the Tea Bagger Movement.
      Truly, a sad time to be an American.

  • Mumbletypeg

    It's just a typo. They meant "geriatric" ballot.

  • Come here a minute

    Generic politicians always do better than actual ones. The poll question would have yielded more accurate results if it was worded "If the 2010 election for U.S. House of Representatives were being held today, would you vote for the crazy wingnut Republican candidate or the lukewarm, easily rolled-over Democratic candidate in your district?"

  • HedonismBot

    Guaranteed health care goes against the Bah-bul. Jesus says: "Get sick; die quickly, because I can't wait to see you!"

    • DashboardBuddha

      Wow…that does pretty much sum it up, doesn't it? It also clears the way for the privileged or lucky to treat people like shit because, hey…heaven awaits.

  • slappypaddy

    why does our oppressive government so wish us to be, if not healthy, then at least somewhat cared-for? a suspiciously christian agenda can be espied lurking therein.

    o why does not our socialist kenyan overlord lay down his lashing whip of change, his cat-o-nine-tails of hope, and simply allow us to wallow in our slime-pits of disease, ignorance, and despair? we would have none help us save ourselves from ourselves. let us putrify, o master, let us collapse and decay in abject failure, so that we may bring suit against our neighbors in every court of the land, garner dollars in punitive award, and spend them on our toys and candy.

    o master, let us sleep here in our abasement, we beseech thee!

    Joe Miller has serious credit card debts, and also a sizable student loan that needs to be repaid

    Look, people, the Tea Party doesn't care if you are the epitome of fiscal irresponsibility (Joe Miller, Christine O'Donnell), or a grifter who bilked the Government out of billions of taxpayer dollars (Rick Scott), or a paranoid, pathalogical liar who lacks even a perfunctory understanding of the Constitution (Sharron Angle), or a pantsless dumbass who thinks British corporations should control the federal government (Rand Paul).

    The only question is, are you a real American do you hate blacks and Muslims (Sharron Angle, Rand Paul, Carl Paladino, Rick Scott, Christine O'Donnell)?

    • Terry

      He hasn't paid off his student loans? How old is Miller? Maybe once he had the debt, he decided that there is nothing in the Constitution that says he has to pay it off.

  • gurukalehuru

    Way OT, but I'm kind of surprised Wonkette isn't on this like crab lice on a Tijuana hooker. Jesus gets a Blowjob at

    • glamourdammerung

      Look to the side topics.

      • DashboardBuddha

        Too right. It takes discipline to check out the side topics, but it's worth it. How else would I have learned about the Scooter Demolition Derby at Wendys?

        • glamourdammerung

          Given how the conservatives went "full retard" a couple of years ago, it takes discipline just to wake up and see what performance art they are up to on any given day.

          • DashboardBuddha

            No kidding, eh? It's just now getting cool here in Maine (finally), and my bed was so comfortable, one cat by my side, another on my side (she's needy). It was so damn hard to get up. Let's see…stay warm and surrounded by snuggly kitties or get up, sell insurance and see just what the fuck the GOPTP is up to today. Sigh.

  • DashboardBuddha

    I am so fucking sick of fucking polls. I was just about to say how I can't wait for Nov 2 to get here so we will stop hearing about the fucking polls. But, they'll never stop, will they?

  • Oblios_Cap

    Joe Miller has … a sizable student loan that needs to be repaid

    So do I, and it might be paid off by the time I die.

    But oh well, Barack Obama’s evil law forcing every American to have health insurance by 2014 …is legal

    Have the Founding Fathers weighed in on this issue? How about Zombie Reagan? Jesus? If not, this decision must be appealed posthaste.

    • Terry

      From the article: "He also owes a student loan valued at $15,001 to $50,000. A separate financial disclosure report released Thursday from Miller's time as a federal magistrate shows that in 2004 he owed between $30,001 and $55,001 for his law school education."

      The difference between you and Miller may be that you are TRYING to pay yours off.

    • Iam_Who_Iam

      I can bitch for a while about the student loans. My oldest daughter got a sweet deals on the student loans, all Stafford with locked peak interest rates thanks to the Clinton administration. My second daughter just finished college under the Bush administration and got screwed, the Stafford loans were cut to shit so she’ll be paying off her private student loans with ridiculous interest rates for a very, very long time. Now it’s my son’s turn under the Obama administration, and the sweet deals are back, even better, cuz they’ve expanded the Pell Grants.

      If my daughter hadn’t of gotten an engineering degree, I would of rethought letting her take on that much debt. So, um, I’m guessing this is what those conservative folks want? A bunch of poor ass kids who can’t afford to go to school and stay dumb and obedient? What do they not get about the value of educating our children?

      I'm sorry, I forget sometimes I'm supposed to be relaxed and happy here in Wonkette land. It's after noon, I can start drinking now, right?

  • Steverino247

    The Thomas More (Moron) Law Center, the same idiots that took Dover, Pennsylvania for a bumpy ride over Intelligent Design in their public schools. Ideologues and the practice of law just don't seem to mix well. Perhaps, we should have warning signs outside Federal Courthouses like we do on the highways about DUI. "If you can't think for yourself, don't file!"

  • JMPEsq

    It's OK, my state's Attorney General and likely Governor-to-be Tom Corbett has pledged that, despite being a lawyer and having learned about the Commerce Clause, and the orders of everyone else in state government, he will continue wasting taxpayers' money on his political grandstanding, doomed to fail lawsuit to make sure citizens will be left to die if they get cancer.

  • PsycWench

    I like the idea of a "genetic ballot" more. That would involve genes that code for extreme stupidity being altruistic and preventing the person from reproducing, without all that eugenics stuff.

  • Chet Kincaid

    Republicans have widened their stance in the generic bathroom? What?

  • donner_froh

    Now I get it. Miller needs to get elected to the senate so he will be guaranteed a paycheck for the next six years and pay his student loans.

    • JMPEsq

      Just like O'Donnell.

      • AutomaticPilot

        Does that mean if she wins, she will pay our loans, since she's us?

  • neiltheblaze

    Too bad for them they couldn't get the Pledge of Allegiance judge to hear the case. I'm sure he would have seen the socialist menace that is Obamacare for exactly what the Mama Grizzleys of the world say it is.

  • Sepatown!

    I have never participated in a generic ballot. I always assumed they asked questions like, "Do you like "stuff," or "things?"

  • Serolf_Divad

    "Miller could face a $250 fine for turning the disclosure form in late; there's a $200 penalty for filing the disclosures a month past the due date. No one with the Senate Ethics Committee could say Thursday whether Miller will be fined."

    $250? Daaaaayuuuuuuum! That's like getting two speeding tickets in one day. That's bound to hurt! I'm glad the law has the teeth to keep our politicians honest, otherwise they might game the system (for instance, if the fine were a lollypop three paperclips).

  • slithytovesss

    I prefer generic ballots; the co-pay is always a lot lower.

  • Naked_Bunny

    The Soviet dress code has really changed since the 80s.

  • mavenmaven

    Yes, let's go back to the Bush era approach to health care and science which was, gut the NIH, cut back funding for research, let them do it in other countries, because if we want healin', we should be prayin'.

  • Winnie_Cooper

    Sigh. This isn't the Cocktober that I know and love. Why isn't someone getting caught with their peen somewhere it ought not to be?

  • LionelHutzEsq

    Well, now that Death Panels are Constitutional, how long until we can get Sarah Palin in front of one?

  • LionelHutzEsq

    And you would think that with all that credit card debt that Joe Miller could at least afford a razor.

  • GOPCrusher

    If states can pass laws requiring you to have auto insurance, why do the wingnuts continue to think that the Feds cannot pass laws requiring you to have health insurance?
