Justice Scalia says reading ObamaCare violates the 8th Ammendment

One thing i love about Ron Paul is that he's willing to read the bill (whole bill) before considering his vote.

But Justice Scalia ?

I liked the joke, and you don't want Scalia to get serious!

The reason why you don't is because, seriously, J. Scalia's commerce clause jurisprudence record isn't really that great. If he wants to laugh that off, look at the partisan nature of the plaintiffs, and vote his party - hey, it increases our liberty, so let him!

Consistency is not his middle name. J. Thomas, Scalia is not!

He was making a joke

They seem to be leaning towards it being unconstitutional. I'm a little skeptical that they'll follow through and aren't just talking it up but I hope I'm wrong.

I know this though, if the PTB don't start following the rule of law, I'm not going to worry about following it concerning them either.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

yeah

chunky boy, I do want you to read the whole thing. We are not employing you to sit on you ever-expanding rear and push your work onto others. What a turd!

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

I am so proud of our Judges!

I'm very thankful for some common sense for once!

In Liberty

One can say Justice Scalia

agrees that one should read the whole bill before voting. What he was saying is it violates the 8th Amendment for it is unrealistic for anyone to read the bill item by item. If it is unrealistic, then it is unconstitutional. It seems like he was making a case to simply throw the whole bill out. At least, I HOPE SO.lol

Funny

Who knew justices had a sense of humor.

that was humor?

i must've missed the joke..

correcto mundo!

I actually did read the entire thing, not the final one, but the final proposed version before the 'final' not-final version that went up for vote.

well, to be more accurate, speed-read it.

Suffice it to say, it is pure corporatist BS.

and yes, they do have a death penal.

It's completely BigPharma written, as the panel that decides what service/products to offer is to be predominantly determined by 60% of the panel that consists of corp. reps, not doctors nor even the liberals' favorite 'regulators.'

Guarantee you that 90% of people who are moronically protesting in FAVOR of it at the steps of SCOTUS have never read it, nor understand it.

even at a completely perfunctory level, what person in their right mind thinks that a govt who they publicly profess to be hijacked and run by Wall St. operatives and puppets, who head regulatory agencies, write bills in favor of the very industry that they purport to want to 'regulate,' a govt that steals, cheats, kidnaps, rapes, tortures, and murders, is gonna give a SH*T about your health, or the F'ng polar bears??

It's like how many times does one need to be raped, before one breaks out of a Stockholm Syndrome-d denial/rationalization??

Did OWS learn anything from their experience? Do they still believe they live in a free country, or a policestate? Do they admit and accept the fact that while these are local tyrants beating them, do they 'get' that most of their policies and toys are from the Feds, as in Obama, simply continuing and expanding all of GWB's illegalities?

I keep expecting them to have some sort of a mass catharsis about reexamining what the role of govt should be in a free, or supposedly purported to be a free society.

No such luck. Actually of course, I'm being rhetorical. If after all this they haven't awakened, I don't expect them to wake up, anytime soon.

Predictions in due Time...
