ObamaCare: Obama’s Monster Corporate Subsidy$$$ to garner support for his re-election upheld by the Supreme Miscarriage.

ObamaCare = Health Insurance Industry Care and if any People are actually helped it is merely incidental.

GE masturbates feverishly as Hillary’s And Dilma’s plan for Brazilian Amazon Destroying Monster Dam nears fruition – 60 more dams to come!

Bye Bye Amazon! Nice knowing that ya! And that rainforest thing you had going for ya!

To build the Belo Monte “Monster” Dam -the third-largest dam in the world, if built. The dam complex would divert nearly the entire flow of the Xingu River along 100 kilometers and devastate an extensive area of the Amazon rainforest, threatening the survival of indigenous and traditional peoples, and displacing up to 40,000 people.

The Size of the Supreme Court

I found this article by Jonathan Turley interesting. He proposes setting the size of the U.S. Supreme Court at 19 members so that replacement of justices would be more regular (by making them more frequent), and justices would hold less individual power. It is well known that Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is the one swing vote on the current court, because the other eight justices are polarized by ideology into two equal camps.

Why did Justice Roberts Cross the Partisan Line on ObamaCare?

On Thursday morning, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the Patient protection and Affordable Care Act, AKA: ObamaCare. The decision was decided with a 5-4 majority vote. Chief Justice John Roberts was the deciding vote, when he broke partisan rank and voted with the 4 liberal judges. Although this is a big victory for the Obama administration, and a big win for the people of this country, do not be fooled by Roberts' bipartisanship. The Roberts court is one of the most partisan courts in recent history.

Dear Tom,

McCulloch is the case that defines the meaning of the Necessary and Proper clause

Dear Thom,

As you know, the necessary and proper clause in the Constitution is a very important grant of power for the Congress. It is also called the 'elasticity clause' because it basically says is that Congress can pass any regulation necessary in order to support an ennumerated power.

Anyways, the McCulloch decision was literally about the establishment of a national bank, which opponents claimed was not an ennumerated power. But McCulloch is most noted because it defines the meaning of the necessary and proper clause.

Why Are House GOP'ers Citing Holder For Contempt When The Democrats Didn't Cite John Mitchell?

Race? Voter suppression? NRA pressure? Or just good ol' hypocrisy.

Has the GOP no shame? What a dumb question considering they're the party of the same guy who acted much like Darryl Issa who's acting much like the shameless bully of Appleton, WI.

step one .. again

Means and Manners.... The Congress determines that a sector of particularly costly and pernicious commerce must be regulated, and the Supreme Court says that they have the right to do so because they hinged the regulation upon their taxation powers. Good end satisfied, albeit by an unpopular mechanism, and Justice Roberts fortifies the solemnity of his office (the tendentious improprieties of his fellows less indicative of "the Roberts Court").
