Just what is a “union?” Those on the far wrong (I can no longer use the directional reference ‘right’) are fond of pointing out just what is a “marriage” (whether they cheat on their own), and they seem incapable or unwilling to recognize our national union. Pity over a million Americans died between 1861 and 1865, to meld this Union more securely.
More than a few states in this UNION are now led by the far wrong; nearly a dozen governor’s chairs “swung” last fall, when the electorate lost what was left of its mind. Twenty-six states have joined in one or more legal actions aimed at overturning the health-care reform so bitterly secured over the angst of the far wrong last spring. Don’t be fooled: the far wrong doesn’t give a camel hair that we are to be REQUIRED to buy health coverage. Do you think the agents of the billionaires really mind if granny can afford any sort of health insurance? Well, in case no one noticed, the insurance companies are huddling, looking for more pins to stick in the law. They admitted that their lobbying effort against it was huge, and just who do you suppose will pay for those millions in expenses?
Colorado’s attorney general (not capitalized, on purpose) joined one of these legal actions. Did he seek clarification, or express confusion over implementation? Naw; he says it’s “unconstitutional.” I worry when the attorney general, like a number of occupants of state executive mansions, is unaware of what the CONSTITUTION says. Try Article Six, where the “Supremacy” Clause is written. That, combined with the Fourteenth Amendment, says the United States laws and treaties are at the top of the pyramid. Period. Deal with it. Of course, every test of those two portions of the founding basis for our country was heard before ACTIVIST judges, so the far wrong is justified in ignoring them. Correct?
Not correct. Just today it was disclosed that some far-wrong governors have chosen to jump ship, refusing to move toward implementation of the health-care reform act, now that all of TWO US DISTRICT courts have ruled against all or part of it. District courts in the federal system are like Class “A” baseball — these are the bush leagues. Oh, I wish I hadn’t chosen THAT word.
Nevertheless, I now have a list. There are states I refuse to visit, even to change planes. I won’t allow one nickel to leave my pocket for Florida, Idaho, South Carolina, Georgia, or Wisconsin. Texas is teetering; I might have to sell some municipal bonds. Unilateral action on the part of the miscounterelected should have consequences. I am sickened, watching as we become two countries here in the USA, or fifty. Each of these, and anyone far-wrong outfit choosing to join them, should immediately have all its Medicare, Medicaid, FEMA, EPA, Transportation, Defense, Education, and Welfare largesse from the UNITED States terminated forthwith. You think it’s not possible? Look back at our vacation of Air Force bases in Libya, between late 1969 and mid-1970. We took out the very RUNWAYS, not just the buildings. It was quite something, to see operating, fully functional military installations returned to the desert in mere weeks. Why not here? That is, in Florida, Idaho, South Carolina, etc., etc., and any state where Haley Barbour hangs his overgenerous hat. Let’s see how these proud, loud, unbowed roosters who THINK they “know” and claim to support the Constitution (they’re so sworn), get along without dime one from Washington.
They’d SAY they love it. No Department of Education, no Health and Human Services, no EPA. And no Fourteenth Amendment. There’s been a lot of noise about repealing or eliminating all of those. Well, have at it. Just don’t any longer claim you’re any countryman of mine, and don’t even suck up a single penny of my taxes. You can form your own country or just waste away; I don’t care. And if we can build a fence between Mexico and Arizona, we can build one around the other three edges of the Grand Canyon State.
I’d really like to see if Washington has any testicles. It’s time to let these paper-hanging gong-show refugees lie in the bed they’ve made.
