US Supreme Court Issues and Opinions - 9:30am EDT (SCOTUS Blog to start at 9am) 6-25-15
Thank you for the notice.
So the rulings on Gay marriage and OdumbassCare will finally be released. I betcha the will both be ruled - Unconstitutional - thus the firestorm will ensue
Shortly after SCOTUS approves gay marriage, the Pope will declare that Jesus was merely a metaphor.
Never let a good crisis go to waste.
Hope I’m wrong about both. But I doubt I am.
Let the firestorm begin!!
Any particular decision could be released as late as next Tuesday.
These comments were written more than a decade ago and they seem to stand the test of time. I think they anticipate the sliding scale of values imposed upon us by the left depending on the flavor of the day. It is a profoundly dangerous tendency to censor speech based on the subjective reaction of a class, or in this case a race, of people because pandering to subjectivity is an open invitation for that class to move the goal posts. A short review of the threads on FreeRepublic will reveal that the left senses blood and will pursue this to the point past absurdity and seek to ban all vestiges of conservatism. Certainly it does not take a prophet to foresee that the next great jihad will be waged against the cross and everything it stands for.
I would add this to the thoughts expressed on the about page that the battle over Confederate indicia is already lost, just as the battle over homosexual marriage is already lost no matter how the Supreme Court rules. These battles are not won or lost in the courts or the legislatures so much as they are won or lost in the institutions which mold the culture and which invariably are forced-funded with public monies such as our public and private schools and universities, our NGOs, The Southern Poverty Law Ctr, our eleemosynary institutions like Rockefeller and Ford, and flat-out propaganda organs like a ACORN and him Planned Parenthood.
Talk radio and common sense alone are inadequate shields against relentless well-heeled propaganda onslaughts. Once the left can appropriate, rather misappropriate, the issue of race the argument is over and pusillanimous Republicans who were described in the About Page are certainly not going to brave a media storm to argue for common sense.
Because we have failed to fight this fight in the kindergartens we cannot expect to win it today in governors' offices, legislatures, or courts. The rampage must burn itself out.
“So the rulings on Gay marriage and OdumbassCare will finally be released.”
Earlier this week the Court indicated they would release rulings today, tomorrow and Monday. So they may release one or both of the big cases today, but I’m guessing we’ll get one tomorrow and one Monday.
Here’s a rundown of the seven cases left to be announced:
“So the rulings on Gay marriage and OdumbassCare will finally be released. I betcha the will both be ruled - Unconstitutional - thus the firestorm will ensue”
Hope springs eternal.
So today is the day America dies and judgement comes to the shores................God help America
I think someone said it....How can nine people redefine marriage after an uninterrupted history since the beginning of time of "man and wife" and the ultimate purpose of procreation.
How I'd like to say it my way....In other words, God has decreed man and wife as the only means of survival of the species....and therefore man and wife can only fulfill that purpose. And that is the true definition of marriage.
Obamacare...The writing is very clear....Monies were offered to every state to set up exchanges with the assumption that every state would take advantage of that. The alternative was a Federal exchange....without subsidies...kinda the key to the whole thing to force the states to set up the exchange.
I also believe that's why the Federal site was not ready....They were pretty sure the states would ALL set up their own exchange. It was the usual government blackmail "money in your pocket" plan. Bottom line....no subsidies through Federal Plan. Obamacare has to go back to go...
I think our Constitution is in the cross hairs before the bible. The erasing of history (Jackson, confederacy, etc) is necessary to remove the Constitution from its base. Once removed it can be anything anyone claims it is.
Excellent post. I have been pondering the idea that
so much of the bruhaha over “white privilege” can
actually be traced to black guilt over not revolting
and freeing them selves but having been freed by whites.
I’m over the race thing, I treat all who treat me with
civility and respect the same way, but then this is
not now the America I grew up in.
Appreciate as always, your writing.
I’ve read this post and your FR page, which offer much to think about.
I think one of the most important things to note about the left and their mendacious race-baiting hatred of the US is the fact that they never mention: 350,000 northerners lost their lives in defense of the freedom of the black people.
The debt is repaid, many times over.
If laws are upheld to make no difference between civil unions and traditional marriage and sacred institutions who refuse to marry same sex couples are charged with crimes, I fear there will be civil disobedience. It will be yet another way in which the left drives a wedge between the north and the south as well as between believers and non-believers.
During Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution, the Chinese were encouraged to destroy the Four Oldsold customs, old habits, old culture, and old thinking.
Well said Sir. Well said.
