This next week, the U.S. Supreme Court will conduct expanded hearings to evaluate the constitutionality of Obominacare. Yet, I have to chuckle. Most high school kids can see the writing on this wall. Without being too blunt, I must note that Obama's latest buddy/appointee, Elena Kagan, is unmistakably socialist/liberal. Sonia Sotomayor cannot be far behind. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was another liberal appointee. Add a fourth liberal, Stephen Breyer, and you are looking at a split decision. Roberts, Alito, Thomas, and Scalia (the conservatives) are very likely to question the constitutionality of the individual healthcare buying mandate. This leaves Anthony Kennedy (usually a moderate) to make the decision all on his lonesome. I predict a 5 - 4 decision one way or the other. Like the polygamy controversy, this too is a sticky one. Don't try to tell me that it is not undoubtedly political - political not only in the ideological leanings of each justice, but political also in the profound impacts which will come from the eventual decision. Even the very timing of the publication of the ruling could hugely affect the upcoming presidential elections. Every one of the justices HAS TO KNOW THIS. There may even be a mixed ruling - upholding Abominacare, yet rejecting the individual mandate. THEN WHAT ???
I would have more energy for this great theatrical event if it were not such a huge distraction from the real problem - bankruptcy and liquidation. This nation has filed bankruptcy three times - 1787, 1933, and 1989. All that's left for us now is receivership and regime change. See Deuteronomy 28 - - -
"15 ¶ But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: . . . . . . . . . .
|43||The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.|
|44||He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.|
|45||Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep His commandments and his statutes which He commanded thee. . . . . . . . . . . .|
|51||and he (the enemy) shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.|
|52||And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.|
|53||And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:"|
