Cue, the Lando clip, 'we had a deal'


Well, at least MarkO isn't first.


I thought Krauthammer addressed this well last night on the illusory nature of what separates these institutions from this mandate and how it destroys the essence of the first amendment. And Juan fumbled horrifically in his analogizing in response. Not very good with those metaphors.

This is the post I alluded to yesterday.

We really turn out to be implementing Marx's desires in his own words.

And the crucial importance of the education vision that originated in Chicago. Over and over again. It seems to be why people move there.


Yes, makes the previous statement about Benghazi
rather 'inoperative'

Those attacks were designed to try to discredit the health care reform law and hurt President Obama politically

Did Pinch's minions learn this from the Psychic Friends Network or is there an in-house mind reader?


The former law, unlike with the CRA revisions, do not lend themselves to 'fundamental transformation' TM, so it is doubleunplusgood.


School House Rock does not provide an answer so I will ask the JOM gang.

How much of a law can the Executive Branch change after the law has passed? Do these changes have to go back to congress in order to revise existing law or is the whole thing controlled by one of the Carzs?

This is even worse than confirming Lurch. What a pathetic excuse for an opposition party.


You know I'm partial to historical analogs to recent events, this one suggested itself, from Foreman's book which was source material for the Dutchess, in the LUN


Paging Cardinal Dolan...paging Cardinal Dolan....


Well apparently you;


TK - All I remember is that the line "to be determined by" is used lots of times in Obamacare.
Congress gives away their power in these bills....& it lets them off of being responsible. Lots of the enviro bills are purposely vague too.


Yes, Janet, what isn't made clear with the likes of Chu, is where is he going back to, Van Jones left the administration, but returned to CAP, and apparently a solid booking on all the proper
chat shows, the crucify guy rerurned to the Sierra Club.


Here ya go - "A further breakdown finds that there are more than 700 instances in which the Secretary is instructed that she “shall” do something, and more than 200 cases in which she “may” take some form of regulatory action if she chooses. On 139 occasions, the law mentions decisions that the “Secretary determines.” At times, the frequency of these mentions reaches comic heights. For instance, one section of the law reads: “Each person to whom the Secretary provided information under subsection (d) shall report to the Secretary in such manner as the Secretary determines appropriate.”"
the Secretary is the Secretary of HHS

Well Rock Center, seems to have come from the same minds, that put Homer on the design team,
I particularly despise Capus, for airing the V Tech shooter tape, though.


Proof (eyeroll) of Obama shooting Skeet(ers)

Pres Obama skeet shooting last August


sorry, but Greta's link doesn't seem to work on typepad today (usually they do!).


Well, The Blaze has the photo too.


cc, TM put up a new thread (well a whole bunch of them, including one on the photo) -- "Just Shoot Me".

--Gee, and here I thought that institutions such as Georgetown University were trying to restore the status quo ante, so they could continue doing whatever they had been doing for the two centuries prior to Obama's Glorious Ascent. My bad.--

I needed a laugh Tom. That's funny.


Orwell must either be smiling or rolling in his grave when the NYT suggests that someone who protests a law mandating him to do something in violation of his religious beliefs is imposing those beliefs on society.


Just as defenders of individual liberty are imposing freedom on all those who wish to be slaves of the collective.


((Orwell must either be smiling or rolling in his grave))

I think he's weeping that his writings are being used, as narciso says, more as an instruction manual than as the warnings they were intended to be.

Latest trend: the left has successfully characterized the defenders of traditional marriage as dangerous extremists, and since that has worked so well for them, they are now branding as "extreme" defenders of the Constitutional right to bear arms.


They can continue to brand people, most thinking persons see them for what they truly are. Freedom-snatchers. Our history is rife with examples of groups of people trying to take away our God- given rights. They will not succeed. More persons value freedom than do not. However, not all of them voted in the last election, more's the pity.


How much of a law can the Executive Branch change after the law has passed?

All of it if a Democrat is president. None of it if a Duke & Duke Republican is President.

Family sizes have changed. Just as the ritual marriage would last "until death do you part."

How do I know this? Well, I'm old enough. Even with WW2 taking so many men overseas; I went to school where I was the only child. Everybody else has brothers and sisters.

Heck, having a family car was a very big deal. And, Detroit, to meet the needs of dads who couldn't fit all their kids into back seats, came up with Station Wagons!

Today's SUV's, however, are sold to carry lots of children who are in the neighborhood. But big families? They just aren't so big, anymore.

Anyone remember Clifton Webb's movie "Cheaper By the Dozen?"

People once believed that if you had enough kids, the more you had, like wholesale, your costs went down.

People believed the strangest things.

Thank goodness we've entered the age of enlightenment when we learn sensible things like our exhalations are pollution.
