Remember when the Clown-in-Chief scolded the Supremes in front of the world during his State of the Union address?
Now he's at it again:

President Obama, employing his strongest language to date on the Supreme Court review of the federal health care overhaul, cautioned the court Monday against overturning the law -- while repeatedly saying he's "confident" it will be upheld. 

The president spoke at length about the case at a joint press conference with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. The president, adopting what he described as the language of conservatives who fret about judicial activism, questioned how an "unelected group of people" could overturn a law approved by Congress.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I actually believe
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is going to vote against the ACA.

I have not seen "The Hunger Games", nor do I intend to.

It is a movie (and series of books) about a dystopian (opposite of utopian) future where teens must compete to the death (this much I know) in order to secure their liberty (here i'm guessing). Wait here, I'll google/wiki it. Still don't know, but at least secure their life.

This fiction is very popular among young adults. It was originally published by Scholastic!

If only these kids knew the real dystopian future lurking around the corner (toth to Joe).

I know of only one utopian vision that ended well on film, and that is "Things to Come" written by H.G. Wells, wherein a dictatorship of the most intelligent (progressives) saves the world.

Odd that another story by Wells shows such a dystopian future for man in "The Time Machine" wherein the Eloi are harvested by the Molochs. Perhaps the Time Machinist had zipped past the end of "Things to Come", discovering that it doesn't end so well when progressives are in charge.

I listen to the Goebels inspired Big Liar-in-Chief say his plans for the auto industry will cut my gas bill in half from $8000 to $4000 a year and hear the crowd cheer as I'm doing the math in my head.
I'll think out loud for you: I drive 500 miles a week round trip to work. I pay about $4/gal and get 20 mpg. Carry the zero.... That can't be right, oh yes it is. Ummm, 25 gallons time 4, that's $100 times 50 (two weeks vacation) = $5000.
Does your average family spend $8k on fuel and I only spend $5k?
Lucky me.
So if Progressives are so smart, how come they can't do simple math?
Remember, this financial wizard is planning your retirement.
For all 57states.
But Joe Biden is there to help him do the heavy thinking.

I'm off to church now, where I'll meet with others who share with me the only Hope we really have.

Have a blessed day

Thanks Mr. President3.99 Today.

His Secretary of Energy said that gas should hit $5.

Almost there!

Our troops have been trained to make secret gestures that indicate coercion on the part of their captors.

This is an example:

Coercion Yes

This is not:

Coercion not

These general officers are the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

They, and the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, are very aware of the damage being done to our country's military and defense capabilities by the Traitor-in-Chief behind the podium.

That they haven't resigned in protest is a shame.

 

Edit:

I just realized that 40 years ago yesterday, I enlisted in the most powerful Air Force on this planet.
I went places and met people I haven't forgotten to this day.

Under martial law, when I was only twenty years old, I was placed in charge of a township, during which I had an opportunity to save lives, by which a friend and I  were proclaimed "Town Heroes" by a mayor in South Carolina.

I hitched a ride on the president's helicopter, Marine One.
I did work that required me to wear civilian clothes for so long that I forgot to cut my hair before reporting to a squadron commander.

I drank beer with a former U-Boat captain.
I learned management techniques that I still find useful to this day.

I grew up.

The president made an announcement today saying that religious organizations will not have to provide contraceptives in their insurance plan, but the insurance companies will still have to provide it.
When I employ someone, and pay for their insurance, my funds will pay that insurance company for coverage. If that coverage includes ANYTHING (including birth control, kervorkian treatment, sex-changes or aspirin), I am paying for it. There is no escaping that.
Either the president is too stupid to understand that, or he thinks we are too stupid to understand that.
Which do you prefer?

When will the discussion no longer be whether that Catholics have to provide this level of insurance provision, but that:
THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO MANDATE WHAT COVERAGE AN EMPLOYER PROVIDES!
Everyone asked why Obama would do something this stupid.
All Obama had to do was enrage, then mollify the Catholics and then the real argument goes away.
That’s the Machiavellian trick he’s pulling.

Then there's Rita's brilliant take on it.
Warning: Bacon is involved. May increase your risk of wanting a bacon sandwich.

 

Edit: A bit of audio on the subject.
