Dear Readers:  The SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition, San Diego’s Tea Party group,  has issued the following statement:

SAN DIEGO, CA – The Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition (SCTRC) condemns the Supreme Court of the United States ruling, which essentially upholds the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.  At the present time, the interpretation of the complex decision seems to be that the individual mandate has been transformed into a tax and the rest of the challenged ObamaCare provisions now stand.  The co-founders of SCTRC have issued the following statements:

Dawn Wildman, President of SCTRC:  Today is the day American liberty died. I am in shock that the Supreme Court upheld this huge expansion of government overreach. But this will energize the base and makes November far more important than yesterday. When the government can force you to buy a product we have lost every liberty we once took for granted. I can see November from the Supreme Court!

Leslie Eastman, SCTRC Media Director:  Basically, the US Supreme Court has said: “If you like your death panel, you can keep your death panel”.  I cannot understate how disappointing it is to see that Chief Justice John Roberts decided to side with the big-government oriented justices, and merely amend the poorly written law developed by both houses of Congress.  However, Roberts did leave us one clue on how we citizens can still fight back, as controlling healthcare is merely a front for controlling every other aspect of our lives.  His decision includes this passage:

The Framers created a Federal Government of limited powers, and assigned to this Court the duty of enforcing those limits. The Court does so today. But the Court does not express any opinion on the wisdom of the Affordable Care Act. Under the Constitution, that judgment is reserved to the people.

We will be issuing that judgment on Nov. 6th of this year.  SCOTUS has just lit a fire under every citizen activist I know.  We will be at the polls in November, and that will be our judgement.

Sarah Bond, SCTRC Co-Founder:  At this point, the solution can only be political. That means that our group, and Tea Party and Citizen Action organizations around the country, will focus on the fact that people will now be taxed.  In a country facing the poorest recovery following a steep recession since the Great Depression, in which people are scrambling to find money for basics, having more money taken in taxes is not a great re-election platform. In fact, this represents the largest tax increase in American history!  We will also identify candidates who will do what the Supreme Court failed to do – fully repeal Obamacare.

As Horemheb notes:  Employers will NOT be hiring more, in light of the decision.  There will be no gains in employment to run on.

As fellow SLOB WC NotesStock are tanking in wake of this decision.

UPDATE: Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh, formerly of Romania, details the horrors of free healthcare here:  The Supremes Have Spoken

For those of you who think communist health care is great because it is free, you are right. You get free euthanasia, free medicine that is in short supply, free denial of service, free denial of necessary lab tests, free long wait for emergency medical procedures, free care for illegals that you subsidize, and free rationing of care based on age and insufficient funding. When that happens to you, remember that your vote had consequences, which you did not foresee when you were carried away by the promise of “free” and “social justice.”

I am so sad because I now have to live again in a communist state similar to that which I had fled from decades ago. I will be subjected to the horrors of socialized medicine again. I have experienced it firsthand and I know what it does to people, but I was outvoted by millions of ignorant Americans and useful idiots.

Based on the Duran Duran song (Is there Something I should Know), SCOTUS has detestably rewritten for implementation Obamacare, “you are as easy on me as a nuclear war”.  No words I have can convey my anger and disappointment.  As SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition President Dawn Wildman  notes – “This is the day liberty died”.

Basically:  If you like your death panels, you can keep your death panels.

The SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition will be releasing a press release later today.  Check back for updates.  I am off to start a day of heavy drinking.

Dear Readers:  The Professor is offering the “Kinks” as a musical interlude, in anticipation of tomorrow’s Obamacare decision.  However, being a fan of Duran Duran, I thought this classic was more in order for the Shrine:

Good night — I will be seeing you all tomorrow.

Well, almost.

Dear Readers:  I have been following Professor Jacobson’s and Tammy Bruce’s reports on the Obamacare hearing with great interest (and Hillary is 44’s analysis has been inspiring).  Today’s look at “severability” has been fascinating.  Even though that it has been likened to a train wreck, and a plane wreck, I don’t want to get too excited that there is going to be a perfect trifecta of design failure culminating in November:

However, I might be getting too optimistic on the subconscious level. Today, as I am walking the Young Prince and his gal pal to the car after school, discussing the latest social studies test, I walk off the curb. I land on my hand, and the left upper leg took a direct hit. I was in intense pain, but managed to get to the car and have the kids help me into the house.

After conferring with my beloved father-in-law (a doctor), and tapping into my prescription grade analgesics, it seems that I avoided breaks and tears. My husband offered to rush back home from his Northern Outpost. However, I seem only to have major bruising of the major muscle groups in my upper leg, as well as to my dignity, so Horemheb remains at his duty station. It looks like the worst of it is that I will limp a bit, and blog a bit more than usual.

I have got to stay focused better!  Of course, I am not the only one excited.  Charles Caesar says that the Supreme Court is an Obamacare Death Panel.  I can only hope.

Related to medical issues, I have other news. W.C. has been covering the on the financial problems of accused mass murderer Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who killed 16 in Afghanistan. It seems that shortly after this incident, the Army ordered a review of the use of an anti-malarial drug used in that country: Robert Bales Charged: Military Scrambles To Limit Malaria Drug Just After Afghanistan Massacre .

Mefloquine, also called Lariam, has severe psychiatric side effects. Problems include psychotic behavior, paranoia and hallucinations. The drug has been implicated in numerous suicides and homicides, including deaths in the U.S. military. For years the military has used the weekly pill to help prevent malaria among deployed troops.

More comprehensive details on the horrendous psychiatric side-effects on this drug can be found HERE for the scientifically inclined.

On a more positive note, Brown University has reported on the development of a “Bed-of-Nails” Brest implant that can deter the growth of cancer cells: Made from a common federally approved polymer, the implant is the first to be modified at the nanoscale in a way that causes a reduction in the blood-vessel architecture that breast cancer tumors depend upon, while also attracting healthy endothelial cells for breast tissue.

I hope this is the last personal medical update I need to give for some time. Thanks for everyone’s well wishes, and if you want to support a great conservative blogger who needs more substantial medical care, check out: ZILLA-AID-ATHON.As I gave a bit today, I like to think that I am mostly intact because of good karma.
