...and here is why....
Obamacare is unconstitutional if it were to be enacted via the Commerce Clause, but not if it’s simply a tax, the justice wrote. “Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness.”
In so doing, Justice Roberts has just busted Campaign 2012 wide open. The high court’s ruling leaves in place 21 tax increases costing nearly $700 billion. Of those taxes, 12 would affect families earning less than $250,000 per year.
Now that Obamacare’s penalty is a “tax,” not a “fee,” Mr. Obama is breaking a 2008 campaign pledge not to raise taxes on Americans earning less than $250,000. This new “tax” will hit across the economic spectrum, despite his campaign declaration that health care should “never be purchased with tax increase on middle-class families.” Now, Mr. Obama and congressional Democrats have enacted the largest tax increase in history.
Chief Justice Roberts has given Mitt Romney a key attack: The president is a tax-and-spend liberal bent on expanding government to unprecedented levels. And the presumed Republican nominee knows it: “If we want to get rid of Obamacare, we’re going to have to replace President Obama,” he said from a rooftop in Washington overlooking the Capitol. “What the court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected president.”
To date, this thread has been viewed over 16,000 times.This is an indication of what a compelling story, an audience (you), an obvious good guy (me), and a verifiable evil PoS (Glen Lang) can produce when they intersect.
To put this in perspective: there aren't 16,000 who actually bother to read the print version of the local newspaper (the News and Observer) here in Raleigh.
Cary Politics was moribund, (even having been offline for 6 months or so) until I returned after an extended absence and used this platform to expose this issue.
What does this mean?
- The first and most obvious answer: Lang is a degenerate criminal, of course.
- A compelling story based upon facts where the persons involved/impacted are allowed & encouraged to participate as far as they feel comfortable will draw more participants and readers. Newspapers fail as they are nothing but a politically radical class, journalists, engaged in agit/prop masquerading as "news". This medium is, effectively, an end run around the traditional forms of media censorship. The legacy print media ignores stories they don't understand or stories that run counter to their political beliefs. This bleeds into #3......
- The alleged main stream media is loathe to deal with stories they cannot understand. The manipulation of DirecTV stock by fraudulent inflation of the number of alleged customers is a story that is simply too complex for most business page writers to deal with, they cannot understand it.
- I think most interesting of all is how many Connexion employees (past and current) have reached out to me via email and phone to reveal most of the significant data shown in this thread. There is a fairly extensive lack of trust of traditional reporters and their medium. Basically, these Connexion employees understand points 1, 2, and 3 above. Ergo, they won't contact or communicate with a legacy media reporter.
The followup story to this one is the coup d' etat of municipal government in Cary by Jim Goodnight. The richest man in the state owns Cary city government. He purchased three Mayors, numerous city council members, a city manager, and many others. Lang was just one of Jim Goodnight's assets, one of his puppets. There are more and these puppets have derailed road construction projects on behalf of Goodnight, they've caused the city to spend tens of millions on "art" projects for the benefit of the Whine and Cheese Crowd, and they have destroyed the transparency, legitimacy, and integrity of municipal government in Cary.
By the way, a cup of coffee, on me at Starbucks to whoever shoots me an email first identifying Connexion Technologies resident drug dealer. (I already know the answer and soon the CPD will as well.)
So, the Media, the public employee unions, and the Democratic Party lost their *** last night in Wisconsin.
Even on the exit polls, let me restate that, on the EXIT POLLS - the ones taken after a person votes, the Media managed to over state the Democrats vote count by 7%.
Make no mistake folks, yesterday was a blow out against the Donkeys, the Unions, and the Media.
Romney will win Wisconsin in the fall. The public employee unions are going to be attacked and broken in more states now. We the People will recover our government.
I believe the correct conclusion you were reaching for, but failed to nail, is that the South was correct about O'bama before it became fashionable to be correct.
The nation elected an inexperienced idiot, one who is at least unconcerned with if not downright hostile to the idea of American Exceptionalism. He has a burning hatred for the people, the institutions, and the heritage of this nation.
He will suffer a devastating blow out in the fall elections.
I need a volunteer who is exceptionally good as a graphic artist. I have a concept for a Chris Matthews poster that I would like to discuss. My idea is philosophically consistent with Matthew's conduct and would show him to be what he is: O'bama's Lewinsky.
Our former Thug-n-Chief, Clubber Lang bullied and threatened private property owners to do his bidding while Mayor. In this case, he cause the city to run afoul of state law. We are still paying the legal bills for his thuggish and criminal conduct while in office.
"Then-mayor Glen Lang told the developers that the project wouldn’t proceed unless it provided for schools, according to the plaintiffs."
Lang's conduct is not "old news", we the taxpayers are STILL being sued because of the actions of this boorish clown and his lackeys. The current Mayor has long been a devotee of the Clubber Lang vision of absolute government control over everything everybody is doing. He is still fighting to keep the illegal sign ordinance, the money he and Clubber illegally extorted from these builders, and other artifacts of Clubbers despicable tenure as Mayor.
The Democratic race for lieutenant governor started late, opened by incumbent Walter Dalton’s bid to replace Gov. Bev Perdue, who decided not to run again at the 11th hour.
Coleman’s campaign raised limited campaign cash and used a mostly volunteer staff but received a huge boost from the state employees association and an affiliated union, which spent $300,000 to buy yard signs, television advertising and polling.
“It’s been a very short sprint for all of us in this Democratic campaign because of the short time we had ... to run a campaign that generally takes a year,” said Coleman, a former state lawmaker from Knightdale.
Mansfield, a freshman lawmaker who waged a campaign against politics as usual, raised concerns about the special interest spending, suggesting Coleman “outsourced” her campaign. He raised $231,000, including a $70,000 personal loan, but failed to gain traction in the polls.
Coleman attacked him early, questioning his Democratic allegiances by noting a long-ago small contribution to Republican Elizabeth Dole and his vote with the Republican Senate majority to limit damages in some medical malpractice lawsuits.
Carrboro voter Martrina Marrow said she didn’t know much about races further down the ballot. But she knew her pick: “I heard Linda Coleman speak. I knew that I wanted her.”
So Linda is functionally a tool for the SEIU/AFSCME and the NC State Employees Association. One that is intolerant of Democrats voting with Republicans on bipartisan legislation.
Okay, this individual is not someone who would ever "work with" or compromise or otherwise pretend that people that disagree with her could do so for honorable reasons. No, each of the two parties is becoming more intolerant of working with the members of the other party. One party is blunt and out in the open about that, the GOOP'ers, the other party is no different, except they are wiling to lie about how intolerant of cooperating with the other party they really are.
So the Donkeys nominated a fictional character to run for Governor? Whatever happens it can never be as painful as having Guv'nur Bev Crackcorn in office. Listen to her long enough and you'll willingly push your coffee mug through your own skull.
On the positive side, we are rid of Bobby Etheridge, again. On an even more positive note, Brad Miller can now spend all his free time authoring moonbat inspired conspiracy theories involving the Koch brothers and Art Pope over at the Daily Kos.
Making yesterday even better was the fact that Gurley and Gardner both lost although the ever regrettable Richard Morgan found a way to claw back into public office. Tedesco and Goldman both won and can now walk away from that gaggle of political extremists and lunatics on the WCPSS BoE.
There is a wild ride to November!
