Waxman vs The Constitution

 

 

” Longtime Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman announced Thursday he will not seek reelection in the fall, becoming the latest architect of the Affordable Care Act to announce his retirement. 

” After 40 years in Congress, it’s time for someone else to have the chance to make his or her mark,” the California congressman said in a statement. 

  Waxman will have served 20 terms in Congress by the time of his retirement. As prior chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, he was instrumental in the drafting of ObamaCare in 2009.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colorado School Shooter A “Very Opinionated Socialist”…

 

 

” Sorry libs, he’s one of yours.

Via News.com.au:

  A TEENAGER who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire with a shotgun at a Colorado high school, wounding two students before killing himself.

  Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building.

  The scene unfolded on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary, a sombre reminder of the ever-present potential for violence in American schools.

  Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson identified the shooter on Friday night as 18-year-old Karl Halverson Pierson.

  The shooter entered Arapahoe High School armed with a shotgun and looking for a teacher he identified by name, Sheriff Robinson said.

  Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman,described him as a very opinionated Socialist.”

” Contrary to what you hear from liberals, the biggest flaw conservatives have is being overly tolerant. Really? Seriously? We’re “overly tolerant?”

Absolutely. 

 Conservatives will listen to a Hollywood star trash us as intolerant and then we’ll go watch his movie anywayMusicians will openly support Obama and call us racists; yet we’ll still buy their albums. Corporations will bend over backwards to undermine everything we hold dear and then we’ll turn right around and buy their products. Conservatives make up 40% of all Americans and if we start letting our values dictate where we spend our money, we can transform America’s culture in a hurry. Our money spells the difference between a blockbuster and a flop, a hit single or a bust, and a corporate CEO ending up on the cover of Business Week or looking for a new job. You want to even the playing field in America? Then stop propping up corporations that want to destroy everything you hold dear. When a company does something you don’t like, close your wallet until management gets the idea. When your money talks, corporations listen. Here are five easy ones to get you started. “

  “If there’s an American tragedy, within hours you can always expect our corrupt media to feast on the corpses of the victims in order
to push their left-wing political agenda.”

   Having the unfortunate need to spend substantial amounts of time in the deepest blue of the north east my experience tells me that self-righteousness is a hallmark of the progressive personality .

“People who buy organic food tend to act like jerks, according to a study published on May 15th in the journal of Social Psychological and
Personality Science.”

  I don’t spend any time in organic markets but I’ve noticed the same sort of smug , “I’m superior” attitude on the road . Here’s a challenge for you readers : next time you are out on the highway pay special attention to the driving habits of Prius pilots .
 
   I’ll be very surprised if you don’t find a group of much less considerate drivers .
    Have you noticed some measurable percentage of plodders that occupy the passing lane , refusing to give way , nay , refusing to even admit that the dozen cars stacked up behind them exists , turn out to be Prius’s ?
  

   “There’s a line of research showing that when people can pat themselves on the back for their moral behavior, they can become self-righteous.”

Sound familiar ?

Yes , the moldering corpse of the Tea Party continues to draw flies … by the thousands . 

  “The role of the Tea Party in opposing Lugar was downplayed by the media and the Ruling Class. Many Americans probably had no idea what was happening. But almost immediately following his defeat on Tuesday the media is buzzing about the resurgence of the movement. The establishment should be abuzz as well. It comes as no surprise to Tea Party Patriots that the media either misses or ignores the real story, which is that the Tea Party never faded. In fact, it has been quietly growing in strength.”

   Let the dinosaur media continue to prop up the roof of the progressive echo chamber . It harms us not and will make each victory the sweeter , as you gasp and shake your heads in disbelief . I think it was movie critic Pauline Kael who said ” ‘I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken.”
