Supremes Get One Right; A Vacation Story

 

So. My plan was to tell you that I’m going on vacation and will only be writing to you in the form of Comments I’ll place at the end of this posting while I’m in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But the Supreme Court of the United States has added an over-layer of conversation.

“Hey, right-wing conservative shitballs, how’s that ass taste?”

When I heard the news that SCOTUS had upheld the Affordable Care Act I almost choked on my Carta Blanca. I started drinking early today in anticipation of a ruling more consistent with that august body’s recent history to strike against personal welfare and civil rights—I felt they would strike down the health care initiative.

After hearing the news, I put my beer down and turned on the tube to catch the spin from the right to this news. Grasping the threadbare rope handed them by Justice Roberts, the right has taken the stand that the President lied when he said this wasn’t a tax.

Really? Is this all you’ve fucking got?

Of course switch hitter Mitt “Uh, What Did I Say” Romney has promised to undo this “job killing” mandate on his first day in office.

Really, Mitt? The same legislation you forced through the State of Mass was good for the Bean State but is a job killer for America? Really?

Then I caught the bad boys of the right for the few minutes I could stand, and guess what their spin is?

Anarchy. Really, Rush? Because you don’t like it you are telling people to revolt? Really? Do we Americans now refuse to obey any law we don’t like?

By the way, did you notice that all three women on the Court voted for health care? What does that say?

And House Speaker John “Pass Me the Orange Dye Number 16” Boehner said something to the effect that, “Women make the health care decisions for their families 86% of the time. We want to repeal Obamacare and put the health of American families back into women’s hands.”

Really? You don’t want women to decide about their own bodies and you want to strike down a law that gives women health care options and covers their family members by protecting them from the denial attitude of insurance companies and helps women sleep at night when one of their kids is sick.

But you “want women to have the power to make health care decisions” and you will do that how? By taking the power they have now to do just that away from them?

Oh, and hey, Rush and Beckster and Cantor and Rove and the rest of you assholes. Guess who did this to you. Have you thought about that yet? This one’s on your pet Supreme Roberts, boys.

Oh baby does this feel soooo gooooood!

OK, enough gloating, I’ve got to pack. I’ll try to check in with all my blogger buddies and I’ll post comments here Re: New Mexico.

Manana, y’all.

    We’re both leaving our respective villages at the same time, Mooner. We’ve got a funeral to attend in east Tennessee, will be gone until Sunday afternoon.
    Like you, I was mentally prepared for the worst this morning, already halfway depressed when I tuned in to watch the live coverage.

    Five minutes into the show I was in the garage grabbing a cold beer, chugging it like a frat boy on holiday.

    Cheers!!!

  2. All the while Mitt was standing behind and turning the clock in reverse while his wife was making sandwich.

    Squat, Thinking and Mel. A glorious day for human beings. Now we need to elect more Dems to prevent the assholes from gutting what we have.
