My Take On King v. Burwell

A lot of conservatives seem pretty upset with today's Obamacare ruling. I'm more disappointed than upset about it, mostly because the RINO's in congress really didn't have a plan to prevent the chaos that would have occurred if the ruling had gone the other way. 

Supreme Court Allows Nationwide Health Care Subsidies
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Obama’s health care law allows the federal government to provide nationwide tax subsidies to help poor and middle-class people buy health insurance, a sweeping vindication that endorsed the larger purpose of Mr. Obama’s signature legislative achievement.
The 6-to-3 ruling means that it is all but certain that the Affordable Care Act will survive after Mr. Obama leaves office in 2017, and has a greater chance of becoming an enduring part of America’s social safety net.
For the second time in three years, the law survived an encounter with the Supreme Court. But the court’s tone was different this time. The first decision, in 2012, was fractured and grudging, while Thursday’s ruling was more assertive.~snip~
 The truth is we brought Obamacare on ourselves by electing Obama and and a majority democrat congress and house and with it getting Pelosi and Reid into positions of power.

To quote Chief Justice Roberts:
"It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”
Obamacare will exist in some form into perpetuity even if the republican party offers us something other than the RINO milquetoasts they keep putting in front of us.
The effort needs to go towards fixing what we have because now it will never disappear.

About that Confederate Battle flag

So Nikki Haley (R-NC) has called for removing the the confederate battle flag, the one put up there by a democrat in 1961.
From American Power blog.

Democrat Governor Fritz Hollings First Raised Confederate Flag Over South Carolina Statehouse in 1961
The Confederate Flag was first raised over the South Carolina statehouse in 1962, when Democrat Ernest "Fritz" Hollings was governor. ~snip~
The democrats keep trying to deny their racist past but history keeps coming back to bite them on the ass. That's why they keep trying to rewrite it by passing off "social justice" history like Howard Zinns A People's History Of The United States.
There doesn't seem to be whole lot about how the democrats pandered to and created the KKK or the democrat governors who fought against desegregation.

People need to remember that it was a racist democrat who flew the confederate battle flag over the capital and a republican governor who called for it to be taken down.

The Medias Bias Marches on

So the AP crops and posts this image of Ted Cruz, you know, a republican. I'm the AP believes this is a coincident and if you believe that then they have bridges for sale in the classifieds.

AP photo shows a gun pointed at Ted Cruz’s head
In an Associated Press image that drew comment and criticism on Twitter on Sunday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is seen speaking with what appeared to be a gun aimed straight at him.
The photograph — taken by the AP’s Charlie Neibergall — actually captured a background poster, with a large semi-blurred image of a handgun pointed at Cruz’s forehead, straight between the eyes.
Story Continued Below
Cruz was appearing Saturday at CrossRoads Shooting Sports in Johnston, Iowa. During his speech, Cruz, an outspoken proponent of Second Amendment rights, encouraged residents to adopt what he called a Texan approach to guns by simply “hitting what you aim at.”
A day earlier, the Republican presidential candidate accused Democrats of using Wednesday’s church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, as an excuse “to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”~snip~
Now a lot of conservative sites are asking the question,"what if it was <insert democrat name here> ?"
That question misses the point entirely. The media is so in the tank for liberal/commie democrats that every story or picture about them is meticulously vetted to reflect liberal/commie democrats in the best light.
By the same token every story or picture about republicans is meticulously vetted or titled to make them look like fools.
Thanks to liberal media bias this will be the climate we enter into for the next presidential election.

Social Justice Creates Mediocrity

Here's a perfect example of social justice warriors sabotaging society.

3 Ways Cancer Scientist Tim Hunt’s Social Media Mob Went Too Far
Sir Richard Timothy Hunt is a British biochemist who won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering protein molecules that control the division of cells. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1991, was awarded the Royal Medal for his work on cell cycle control and was knighted by the Queen. He’s worked on cancer research for decades.
Last week, he was speaking at the 2015 World Conference of Science Journalists at a lunch for female journalists and scientists. He said something he claims was meant as a joke, but that went over like a lead balloon:
“Let me tell you about my trouble with girls … three things happen when they are in the lab … You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry.”
We’ll skip to the aftermath. Hunt was forced out of his position at University College London as well as from the Royal Society’s Biological Sciences Awards Committee and forced to step down from the European Research Center.~snip~
What we have here are a bunch of self righteous assholes running off one of the best and brightest simply because they were "offended".
How many times will something like this happen?
There's a whole group of "social justice warriors" out there hanging on every word uttered hoping for something to be offended about so they can puff themselves up because they have so much "power".
So now here's a guy who is the top in his field researching CANCER who has been driven from his work.

Boy that'll teach us, won't it?

Why Christianity and Morality Matters

I laughed out loud when I read this article.

TV News Reporters Speak Out About Explosion of Explicit On-the-Street Taunts
It’s not a new problem, but it’s one that by most accounts is getting worse.
A growing number of TV news reporters say over the past year, there has been an increase in the level of sexually explicit taunts they face while covering stories on public streets. The disturbing trend involves hecklers running up and yelling, “F–k her right in the pu–y” into microphones as reporters stand in front of the camera.
“The acronym ‘F her in the P’ is constant,” NBC4 Southern California reporter Beverly White told TheWrap. “Total strangers, typically young men, shout that profanity like they have a right, and I beg to differ. It is deeply offensive and it’s infuriating.”
The obscene interruptions started to gain notoriety in May 2014. The first known incident was initially thought to have been said by a heckler during a live broadcast in Cincinnati, Ohio. The footage went viral, but the stunt turned out to be a hoax. Still, the copycat incidents are all too real.~snip~
The liberal media has spent decades tearing down barriers to morality and marginalizing Christianity and now they're calling foul on the society they created.
I'm old enough to remember when people had more respect for others than to shout this kind of obscenity at others. Especially when women were around.
Mostly because there was a line that most wouldn't cross and if anyone did their peers would express their disapproval.
I mean I could imagine moral people or Christian youths maybe mugging at a camera or waving their arms behind them but uttering something like this wouldn't even be considered.
But now that the liberal/commie media has marginalized good character or a belief system that encourages good citizenship they're upset over the monster that they have created.

The medias disconnect from the consequences of their own actions is amazing.

Guadalajara Nazi's

Of course the New York Times provides cover because the youngsters probably do't know about the Nazi's. They probably don't but the event organizers and the teams choreographer most assuredly does.

Mexican Girls' Cheer-Dance Team Does Nazi-Themed Routine
 MEXICO CITY — A cheer-dance team in Mexico drew criticism Friday for a routine in which they displayed flags with swastikas, dressed in pseudo-military outfits and one girl appeared to toss a Nazi salute to the crowd.

The performance by about two dozen girls aged 10 to 16 and one boy came at a cheer-dance competition in the western city of Guadalajara at the end of May.

The girls wore red armbands, camouflage dance outfits and carried red flags as they strutted in marching-style formations.

A video of the performance drew condemnation when it began to circulate Friday on social media sites.

On local news sites, many readers said the girls probably didn't know much about the Nazis, and blamed the event organizers and the team's choreographer for the questionable routine.~snip~
Ann Coulter is right, we need to start looking at others culture while the leftists democrats and RINO republicans allow unfettered access to this country with open borders.

Adios, America

SJW* Fail

* Social Justice Warrior

I guess we got "trans" everything in America now.

'Black' NAACP leader outed as white woman
SPOKANE, WA (KREM) -- A recent investigation into racially charged threats made toward the president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane have raised questions beyond who made the threats.
On Thursday, Rachel Dolezal's parents claimed she had been deceiving people.
Ruthanne and Larry Dolezal said Thursday that they want people to know the truth including that their daughter is Caucasian. The Dolezals sat down with 11Alive's Spokane sister station, KREM 2 News and said their daughter is specifically German and Czech.~snip~
What got her in trouble was her allegations of racially charged threats against her. I would think her credibility is pretty much well shot.
I think one of the questions we need to ask ourselves is why do so many people fall for this kind of crap?
I wouldn't be surprised if a movement rises up claiming that race is "fluid" also allowing for a defense for this kind of deception. Anything to justify shaming society in the name of "social justice".

Who knew? Mozart's Good for You

Listening to music can relax or excite people depending on the type but here they're talking about an actual boost in brain activity. Which for me could be a good thing.
Beethoven not so much it seems and somehow I don't believe disco works either.

Listening to Mozart can boost your memory: Classical composer's music increases brain wave activity - and it beats Beethoven
Listening to Mozart can give your brain a boost, according to a new study.

People who heard the classical composer's music showed an increase in brain wave activity linked to memory, understanding and problem-solving, researchers found.

However, no such increases were found after the group listened to Beethoven, suggesting there is something specific about the effect of Mozart's music on our minds, they said.

The researchers, from Sapienza University of Rome, said: 'These results may be representative of the fact that Mozart's music is able to 'activate' neuronal cortical circuits (circuits of nerve cells in the brain) related to attentive and cognitive functions.'~snip~
So here's some Mozart - Allegro con spirito from Sonata in D major, K. 311 for your brain.
You're welcome.

MSNBC Be-clowns itself again

Not that that is news seeing as how they do that daily.
Asking Miss Piggy if she's pro-choice is apparently a "burning question" in their minds.

Sex Toy Selfies

So how's that extra credit assignment working out?

Selfie With Parents’ Sex Toys? Alameda Teacher Accused Of Assigning Bizarre Extra Credit For Sophomores
ALAMEDA (CBS SF) — Parents of students at Encinal High School in Alameda want a teacher fired after they say he sent them home with an extra credit assignment of finding sex toys and condoms in their parents’ private drawers, and taking a selfie with what they find.
Mothers Kimberly Cobene and Evangeline Garcia heard about the sex toy selfie last month from a counselor at an afterschool program their sophomore daughters attend.
“It was to go into your parents’ private drawers or whatever to seek out sexual toys or condoms, or anything of that nature and to take a selfie with it,” Cobene said.
Encinal High administrators implied to the moms that the assignment may have been a joke, but not every student saw it that way.~snip~
Should be interesting to see how the school administration bobs and weaves itself out of this one. The implied joke is their first attempt, there's a good possibility that it'll just go away and they can avoid answering to anyone.
Which is pretty much how bureaucracies try to function.
I suppose it depends on whether the parents pursue it or let the school officials intimidate them into dropping it,

Closing in on Pluto

The New Horizons probe is getting closer and closer to the dwarf planet Pluto.

New Horizons Probe Closes On Pluto And Spots Possible Polar Caps
The spacecraft is within 34 million miles from Pluto and closing. Its closest flyby on July 14 will take it within 8,000 miles of the dwarf planet. At that distance, if the probe were passing by Earth, it would be close enough to provide images of the skyscrapers of downtown Denver, the football stadium, and Platte River.
Pretty cool that I'll be able to see close up images of Pluto in my life time this July.

IRS Fast Tracks Pot Church

Want to start a political non-profit,especially if it;s considered "right-wing",then prepare for an IRS inquisition.
If you consider marijuana a sacrament then not so much,

Marijuana church given tax-exempt status in Indiana: ‘Somebody at the IRS loves us
’The IRS has incorporated an Indianapolis marijuana-smoking church as a tax-exempt religious organization. 
Bill Levin, founder of the First Church of Cannabis in Indianapolis, was notified of the approval last week, which will now allow donors to deduct contributions on their taxes, the CNHI Indiana Statehouse Bureau reported Saturday. IRS documents provided by Mr. Levin confirmed the agency’s approval, CNHI said. 
“Somebody at the IRS loves us because we got it back in less than 30 days,” Mr. Levin told Tax Analysts’ David van den Berg.~snip~
Less than 30 days in a state that using marijuana is still illegal.
It seems that the IRS considers pot-heads an important constituency for Obama and the democrats so obviously they need that tax-exempt status PDQ.

Caitlyn Jenner the Accidental Republican

As much as I've tried to ignore it apparently the biggest news this week seems to be Bruce Jenners "coming out".

Bruce Jenner debuts new identity: Caitlyn

This appears to be the second coming out for Bruce/ Caitlyn because a short time ago as "Bruce" he declared he was a republican.

That's got to be mind blowing for the all the social justice warriors out there having to fight their natural instinct to attack anyone claiming to be a (gasp) republican.

Not only hasn't that happened but now there is a republican on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Hurray for our side huh?

Instead all the left wing media robots are out there falling all over themselves trying to out do each others effusive fawning about how brave he/she is.

Somehow the republican thing is swept under the rug. Not that we should be claiming any bragging rights. But I do get quite a bit of satisfaction knowing that there is a part of the liberal/commie media recoiling in horror that they have to lavish praise on someone who proclaims to be a republican.
