Michael Savage: Roberts affected by medication
WND.com ^ | 6-29-2012 | WND EXCLUSIVE

Posted on 06/28/2012 10:28:32 PM PDT by 867V309

“Roberts has no logic in what he said,” Savage asserted.

“He said the law is a tax, but if the law wasn’t written as a tax, how can he say it’s taxation?”

Any legislation that incurs a tax may now be Constitutional.

When the GOP gets in , we need to make a gun ownership tax, a buy RUSH’s books tax, etc.

Here is a post from a Canadian on the thread:

"Let me tell you this as a Canadian.Our emergency rooms are a bad horror movie. The difference is, you don;t have to stay in the movie theater. I am 58 years old. I have NO family doctor nor can I get one. Any I contact will NOT take on any more patients. If I have to see a doctor, I go to a walk in clinic and WAIT!!!!!! This system was designed by socialists, to benefit socialists. IE: health boards, unionized nurses, unionized providers. We have nurses making over $250,000 per year after abusing the contracts approved by our socialist govts. After taxes 24 beer are $60. Our gas taxes are way more than yours etc. This revenue goes into "general funds"to support our health system which is in the red all the time anyway. Health care in Canada IS rationed. It is a neverending SINKHOLE! I love America and I hate what is happening to her. I challenge ANY Canadian to dispute my post."

It was a tortured ruling. One I could possibly have seen Kennedy making, but shocking coming from the John Roberts I have followed.

One thing it guarantees is that because the “tax” is so low, virtually no one will buy health insurance until they absolutely need it. This will drive insurance companies out of business and / or will force the Congress to raise the “tax” to keep the system from going bankrupt.

The problem is the Roberts gang said in their ruling that if the “tax” gets too high, then it is unconstitutional (although they were careful not to say how high was too high). This means it will face legal challenges repeatedly and will not be a workable system.

Obamacare will die quickly. The scary thought is what replaces it?

The leftists will push for single payer, and if they have succeeded in killing off private insurance in the interim, which I think is highly likely, then there may not be any other option.

In the end, medication or not, Roberts has screwed us all.

Blackmail. Something in his FBI file that is tucked away in Eric Holder's desk.

That is the only thing that makes sense. His legal opinion sure as hell made no sense at all. Probably the worst written opinion of all time. A conclusion looking for a legal reason with no coherent argument to support it.

Roberts was compromised. That is the only explanation that makes any sense.

In just a few days, John Roberts has decided:

... the only way Arizona can secure its borders is to secede

AND

... the American government can force American citizens to do anything and penalize them with a tax if they refuse

John Roberts is not a conservative justice. He is not a sane justice. He may turn out to be worse than David Souter. At least Souter wasn’t made Chief Justice before serving even one day on the court. RINO George W. Bush’s pathetic legacy just keeps getting worse and worse. Dubya could’ve and should’ve elevated SCALIA to Chief Justice. Now we’re stuck with an absolute joke in John Roberts for a Chief Justice for perhaps the next 30 years. SICKENING!

How about this being “one man’s vanity” ? Somehow Roberts got it into his tiny head that the court was being too political.....so he was going to reach across to the leftist-block & make peace. Of course he’s now a laughingstock on the left & hated on the right. The man has ruined himself & his country.

Perhaps prayer is what the “right” is supposed to fall back on. Lincoln called for prayer and fasting and for the nation to humble itself before God to end the Civil War. How many presidents of late remind us of that purpose of Thanksgiving Day?

One thing that nobody is remembering is Obama’s promise to pro-life Dems like Bart Stupac that Obamacare would not include birth control or abortion.

It would have never passed had he not lied to his own party.

This is also the reason it violates the freedom of religion.

I think someone needs to point that out.

Good point.

My GF works for a well-known hospital in L.A. and is a specialist in her area. Took 10 + years. Everyone in her department (except the idiot Odumbo ass-kissers) knew it was a bad ruling. That means more freebies for illegals who make her speak spanish (which she refuses) and she’s thinking of opening a specialized hospital in the Philippines which would be cheaper.

He was probably doing bath salts with Kagan, Ginsberg, Sotomayor and Breyer. I guess that's drug related.

We lost the culture wars because we are an all or nothing philopshy.

The left is happy moving the ball just one yard each year.

They are the adults politically.

“Compromise” was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything.”- Ronald Reagan

The point that drugs for Epilepsy may be a factor in Robert’s seeming meltdown is Not far fetched in any way. Both Depakote and Neurontin are down with FDA’s Medwatch as CAUSING PSYCHOSIS.

I was referring specifically to continually losing on the corercive blackmail issue.

Regarding the “culture wars” though, the Left is winning simply because it is infinitely easier to destroy than to preserve, protect and build up.

The Communista are all about chaos and destruction, aided mightily by their essential, brainwashing foundational pillar of non-judgmentalism.

I note the quotes around "our own" but I doubt Roberts ever was one of us.

Reagan was, but even he signed shamnesty version 1.0.

I can't fault Palin except for the Hatch thing, what is that?

Rubio is squishy on DREAM.

Republican leadership is, well, DUH.

I hope we're not heading toward the two words...

I wish the states would be in charge of it though....the feds have no business..

Rush said this, and I actually thought of this months ago, that if it gets to choosing who gets that extra radiation treatment or who gets the chemo or who gets the triple bypass at age 85, it might be left up to a politically placed panel, that will rule on whether or not you're a "party" member....ala communist Russia....

Roberts... he’s now a laughingstock on the left & hated on the right. The man has ruined himself & his country.

He did that when he gave the Oath of Office to a man he knew full well was ineligible. That's why the Freudian slip, where he mixed up the wording of the Oath and Obama himself said the correct order of the wording. Then Roberts had to administer the Oath again in chambers. Something is very, very wrong.

Maybe it is time for a constitutional amendment to limit time on the Bench. Congress can replace those who are deemed activist from the bench and remove them if they can muster 65 votes in the Senate. This would put a scare into the judges that they better not write law!

No, Warren’s Brown I opinion is worse. It is totally unrelated to any constitutional principle. No more than a mere excuse for the decision. Problem was that the Court dared that admit the precedents such as Plessy were wrongly decided.

Reagan was stabbed in the back by the Democrats in Congress, who refused to fund the enforcement provisions of that amnesty bill after Reagan signed it.

Someone posted a very good reading of the history on that exact bill today, but the above is pretty much common knowledge.

It really is kind of hard to grapple with the fact that Democrats will time and time again do anything and everything possible to have their way.

That their word and promises are as worthless as the air they speak them with. I mean how is it possible for an entire group of people to be so consistently this way... I mean its obviously a product of their Saud Alensky’s rules for radicals hand book but you would think there were some honest ducks in even the most polluted pond.

Perhaps the horror and fraud of all this will awaken the few people left who understand what has happened here. I once read that only 3% of a committed population is enough to change everything. In this case, 60% of the voting public became very disturbed on the day of June 28, 2012, as they saw a Supreme Court Justice rewrite a statue to open up abuses of taxation never before experienced in the United States of America. We can hope that, in the end, Justice Robert’s actions turned on the light in America.

Don’t know what propaganda you’ve been listening to, but it ain’t conservative. Try reading the truth sometime. Otherwise, don’t even talk, at least not to me that is. Don’t know if you have any religion in you, but if you think you do, think about Exodus 22:28 and the corresponding Acts 23:5.
