ObamaCare: good for SCOTUS

SCOTUS Robed FucktardsGoose and gander, anyone?

You, of course, realize that the Supreme Court of the United States wouldn’t deign to sully its hands with the lowly healthcare afforded the Proles and Serfs and Groundlings of this fine nation — having deemed, twice now — that ObakaKare is the law of the land.  Hok-ptui! on ObakaKare, they say.

And with that, a Texas representative has come up with his own novel solution for arrogance, because SCOTUS happens to be exempt from same.

House bill would force the Supreme Court to enroll in ObamaCare

by Mark Hensch

A House Republican on Thursday proposed forcing the Supreme Court justices and their staff to enroll in ObamaCare.

Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) said that his SCOTUScare Act would make all nine justices and their employees join the national healthcare law’s exchanges.

“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” he said.

“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for ObamaCare,” Babin said.

Babin’s potential legislation would only let the federal government provide healthcare to the Supreme Court and its staff via ObamaCare exchanges.

“By eliminating their exemption from ObamaCare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with,” he added.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen.

Goose and gander.

Patrick Macnee passes at age 93

Avengers 1961From BBC.com:

Avengers star Patrick Macnee dies

Actor Patrick Macnee, star of The Avengers TV series, has died in California at the age of 93.

The Briton, best known for playing John Steed in the 1960s television spy series, died at home with his family at his bedside, his son Rupert said.

Macnee also played roles in theatre, appearing on Broadway, and served in the Royal Navy during World War Two.

A statement on the actor’s website read: “Wherever he went, he left behind a trove of memories.”

He died peacefully at his home in California’s Rancho Mirage on Thursday, Rupert said.

A favorite television show of mine in the 1960s, I concomitantly fell in love with Diana Rigg as Emma Peel — who currently plays Lady Olenna Tyrell in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

“Put the American flag down”

Rush Limbaugh was correct.  He said: first the assault on the Confederate flag, next will be attacks on the American flag.

That mushroomed.  Not only attacks on the Confederate flag itself, but representations of the Confederate flag to include not only Alabama CDs (a country and western group as offensive as milk that had the flag on album covers) sold by Amazon — now not sold by Amazon — to movie critics calling for the removal of the film “Gone With The Wind.”

Rush Limbaugh was correct.

From Breitbart.com:

Farrakhan: I Don’t Get Debate Over Confederate Flag, ‘We Need to Put the American Flag Down’

by Ian Hanchett

Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.

Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”

He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”

Keep pushing, American Media Maggots.  Keep refusing to cover incidents like Farrahkan’s racist remarks.  Keep refusing to cover Caucasoids killed by blacks and other minorities.

Mr Obama and his ilk, Leftists, aren’t uniters, they are dividers.  They profit, literally and figuratively, from division.  It keeps them in power and it keeps the issue on the table so that they may continue to profit politically and financially.

Bill O’Reilly lit up over the issue and rightly so.

“Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”
— Louis Farrakhan, Racist

“Hey kid, want some salt?

(Kids running in the background, playing, yelling, being kids in the lunchroom.)

Johnny: “Psst, hey Anton, c’mere.”

Anton:    “What?”

Johnny: “I got salt.  Lots of it.  Only cost ya a dollar.”

(Hands Anton a small baggie of salt.  A dollar bill exchanges small hands.)

This is the new normal in cafeterias.

Think I’m kidding?

Kids Create Salt Black Markets in Cafeterias Due to Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules

School administrators testify to Congress on ‘unintended consequences’ of the law

by Elizabeth Harrington

Children are creating their own black markets to trade and sell salt due to First Lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules.

During a hearing before the House Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education, chaired by Rep. Todd Rokita (R., Ind.), a school administrator told Congress of the “unintended consequences” of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

“Perhaps the most colorful example in my district is that students have been caught bringing–and even selling–salt, pepper, and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food,” said John S. Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Indiana.

“This ‘contraband’ economy is just one example of many that reinforce the call for flexibility [with the rules],” he said.

Obama’s America.  Ain’t it great?

Politics: Marines looking to deploy on foreign ships because the U.S. doesn’t have enough

by Dan Calabrese

USN Carrier GroupEnough what?

Oh yeah: ships.

And leading from behind.

Faced with a shortage of U.S. Navy ships, the Marine Corps is exploring a plan to deploy its forces aboard foreign vessels to ensure they can respond quickly to global crises around Europe and western Africa.

The initiative is a stopgap way to deploy Marines aboard ships overseas until more American vessels are available, said Brig. Gen. Norman Cooling, deputy commander, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Europe and Africa.

The Marines will be able to respond quickly to evacuate embassies or protect U.S. property and citizens, a need highlighted by the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.

“There’s no substitute for U.S. amphibious” vessels, Cooling said. “We’re looking at other options” in the meantime, he added.

The Marines have been working with Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom and other close allies to determine the suitability of the foreign ships for U.S. personnel and aircraft.

The units would be designed for limited operations and not major amphibious assaults. A ground force of about 100 to 120 Marines would be deployed along with three or four Ospreys, which fly like airplanes but can take off and land like helicopters.

The U.S. Navy has 30 amphibious ships but says it needs 38 to fulfill war fighting requirements. It won’t reach that level until 2028 because of budget constraints, according to the Navy.

One would ask: are you kidding me?

We kid you not.

So now we don’t have enough ships for the Marines to do their jobs, and they’re seriously having to seek space on foreign ships.

Thanks ever so kindly, you who voted for this ignoramus.
