Blame it on Massachusetts…again…

The wheels continue falling off the Obamacare cart.

Blame it on Massachusetts.

That state’s voters elected a Republican senator to fill the seat vacated when the Chappaquidick ‘channel diver’ Ted Kennedy shuffled loose the mortal coil.

The Republican, Scott Brown, ran on a ticket vehemently opposed to Obamacare.

In a show of solidarity, Massachusetts voters felt the same way…and elected Brown.

Faced with the threat of a lost filibuster-proof Senate, the Democrats rushed through a monstrosity of a bill in a straight partisan vote, before Scott Brown could be sworn in.

Problem is, the bill was filled with landmines. These things usually get taken care of when the House and Senate go back into committee and fine-tune the legislation, but doing so would have then forced the ‘refined’ bill back to a Senate vote.

A Senate that, without the Chappaquiddick channel diver, was no longer a filibuster-proof majority. Darn those contrarian Massachusetts voters!

So, what’s a Democrat party to do?

When the Democrat-controlled House was forced to accept the Senate pig-in-a-poke, they effectively short-circuited a system that was supposed to prevent such failures.

The Democrat House passed the Democrat Senate version of the bill (with all its warts) in March 2010…and for that sin, lost the House majority 8 months later.

Blame it on Massachusetts.

So, we’re stuck with Obamacare, a law riddled with problems. Democrats short-circuited the normal legislative process rather than deal honestly with Americans.

They couldn’t win on the battlefield of ideas, so used legislative sleight-of-hand instead.

Now Democrats are stuck trying to explain how an unpopular bill they authored and crammed through with the resultant major flaws ‘just needs some tweaking’.

Spouses are being dropped from coverage. Full-time jobs are being cut to part-time. Retirees, individual self-insurers, and unions are losing their favored plans.

Savor the irony of ‘what could be’…if enough voters finally face the fact that it was the Democrat Party who inflicted a diseased bill on Americans, the tide may turn GOP.

And to think it all started with the death of the Chappaquiddick channel diver, a Senate Democrat for over 47 years. Many thought that seat would be Democrat for eternity.

After all, voters could have elected a loyal Democrat to fill the void. But they didn’t.

Blame it on Massachusetts.

A Syrian solution…

Drop Obamacare on them…

Those who were gassed can receive the medical attention they deserve…

Everyone else will be suffering so much from a weakened economy they’ll have to take several part-time jobs, and won’t have the time (or will) to fight and kill each other.

If trampling the Rule of Law isn’t impeachable, nothing is…

A reader (Sue F) notes today’s leaders show no respect for the laws they dislike.

Examples abound where the Anointed One or his Dept. of Justice have refused to uphold or enforce the law, from Black Panther voter intimidation to employer mandates.

Our response encapsulates the problem with selective enforcement of the Law, and why such acts must be deemed an impeachable offense when committed by leaders…

Every moment of our American lives is touched by Law. The air we breathe, water we drink, food we eat, roads we drive on, places of employment…are affected by the Law.

When forced to live in a world where SELECTIVE enforcement is the norm, you’re then no longer subject to the law, but subject to the person or group doing the selecting.

It’s at that point the Founding Fathers envisioned, when they included Impeachment verbiage in our U. S. Constitution. They had seen selective law enforcement in Europe.

They had seen the consequences of not providing equal protection under the law.

And, we repeat this very important fact: the U.S. Constitution states that the Congress makes law, the Executive branch enforces law…and the 14th Amendment, Section 1 clearly demands equal protection under the law.

By choosing what laws to enforce and ignore, the Executive nullifies the Constitution and the legislative mechanism that allows changing the law…through Congress.

Sadly, many of today’s political class refuse to make these distinctions.

The fabric of our American society is woven with threads of Respect for Law…

Free citizens – who wish to remain so – should demand Impeachment of ANY political leader who threatens that freedom…and when it comes to selective law enforcement…

…nothing rips apart our society’s fabric more thoroughly…

NOTHING threatens your Freedom more!!

Impeach…or surrender.

What more important reason for impeachment…?

The Founders recognized that there could be attempts against this Nation’s fabric, and that they could very well be made by leaders in the highest positions of power.

Thus the existence of Article I, sections 2 & 3, and Article II, section 4.

The soul of America is in its reverence of, and deference to, one principle…

…the Rule of Law…energetically supported by democratic means.

A leader who openly disdains that foundational core rips out the soul of our nation.

A president who swears as an Oath of office to “…faithfully execute the Office of President…” does not sotto voce invoke “except for those laws I don’t like.”

Laws support the ethics of America, and ensure the fair treatment of its citizens.

Without the Rule of Law, America is no different from every other country in the world.

Without respect for the Law, anarchists prevail, and our collective National soul dies.

We elect a Congress to make laws – it’s a President’s duty to uphold and execute them.

As a leader, injecting this Nation with a fatal dose of anti-law precedent, by advocating and administering policy in open violation of that core principle, is a High Crime…

…punishable by Impeachment.

What greater crime against a Nation, than the destruction of its soul?


‘Soaring’ to new lows, media continues to define “in the tank”…

As an idiom, ‘in the tank’ is defined as ‘favoring, …assisting in a partisan way’…

When it comes to failed Democrat economic policy or anything Obama, nothing clarifies that idiom like the mainstream media.

When a consumer confidence survey inched up a single point in July, the media trumpeted that gain (from 84.1 in June to 85.1) as a ‘soaring’ accomplishment.

Got that? Goes up 1 point…Happy Days Are Here Again!

Well, guess what? August consumer confidence (same survey group) is now 80.

Yup! Dropped a full 5.1 points in a month. But, not to worry…

…’cuz that’s being defined as “a bit less optimistic…” by the mainstream media, with our favorite headline being CNBC’s “…much lighter than expected…”.

All together now: 1 point up = SOARS…

…5 points downlighter


…an Idiom…for IDIOTS…

There’s the deep end, and then there’s…Newt Gingrich

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told a gathered RNC group in Boston that the GOP needs to offer an Obamacare alternative.


First and foremost, a ‘Free-Market Capitalist System’ IS an alternative.

Just ask Rush Limbaugh – he’s been saying this for years.

Equally important, how does anyone with a straight face (let alone a PhD), concede that a wildly unpopular Democrat bill…costing trillions of dollars yet netting no reduction in the total number of uninsured

…riddled with problems, illegalities, unworkable segments, special waivers for unions, delayed mandates for big corporations, exemptions for insurance companies AND the Congressional Democrats who foisted this bill on Americans…

…can actually be a problem for the Republicans to face in townhalls?

Americans spent trillions on the Democrats’ War on Poverty over 50 years…and today’s percentage of Americans living in poverty? The SAME as it was 50 years ago!

Now Democrats want to spend trillions on a healthcare system because millions are uninsured…but the same levels will be uninsured when the dust settles.

And yet, somehow, the former Speaker thinks the GOP has a problem?

With all due respect Newt, if you want a GOP ‘alternative’ of NOT spending trillions, not forcing millions to buy what they don’t want, NOT causing millions to lose the insurance and doctors they were happy with, and NOT denying the poor decent medical care…


…that’s where we were…


Or is the BlueCollar missing something…?
