“It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.” — Mark Twain
Sam Clemens wasn’t inclusive enough. He should have expanded his criteria to include all politicians, not to mention every federal judge who pretends to uphold the law by allowing the dwellers in the public trough to routinely violate it. When you get right down to it, there’s not a dime’s worth of difference these days between the federal government and organized crime. Government, in fact, is organized crime, and on a scale that Mafia pikers could only imagine. It’s taken over gambling, the unions, muscled its way into control of industry through bribery and intimidation, and it charges each and every one of us more cold cash for ‘protection’ than even the greediest of the old Mustache Petes. Government lies, cheats, steals, and murders, and covers up its crimes by invoking ‘executive privilege’ or justifying them in the name of ‘national security’. And then, like Don Corleone, it says to us, “What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully?”
Disrespect? Here’s some: despite the fact that, as of last count, 52% of Americans want Obama’s takeover of the healthcare industry negated, the insufferable narcissistic socialist inhabiting the Oval Office will not hear of it:
“I’ll work with anybody who wants to work with me to continue to improve our health care system and our health care laws, but the law I passed is here to stay.”
Within weeks of swearing his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, Obama began his campaign to amass his army of IRS agents, and he continued that campaign with his landmark ObamaCare legislation. Even while the right hand was vociferously professing that the individual mandate in his ObamaCare leviathan was not a tax, the left hand was building up the IRS by another 16,500 agents. But, the slight of hand came to a halt last week when the Supreme Court rejected the individual mandate as a gross violation of our Constitution under the Commerce Clause, then relabeled the same violation a tax and gave it a free pass. Thus, the Supreme Court has given the Federal government unrestrained power to force its citizens to do anything it capriciously commands under the guise of a tax, and Obama has gloriously found his way to circumvent the Constitution. His army is the IRS and his ammunition is money.
Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress ordered a hit on the Constitution and the Supreme Court carried it out.
Liberty sleeps with the fishes.
- The Doctor-Patient-Government Relationship (FrontPage Magazine): In 2002, the American College of Physicians published a charter declaring that the medical profession “must promote justice in the health care system, including the fair distribution of health care resources.” A 2011 article published in the New England Journal of Medicine declared that “the primacy of patient welfare” should be replaced with a system in which “physicians are collectively caring for a defined population within a fixed annual budget…” In other words, individual health considerations are trumped by those that benefit the collective.
