Day643 Saturday 06/02/12

ran 3.5 miles
SCOTUS will hopefully be putting POTUS in his place at the end of this month with their decision on his Affordable Health Care Act (curious name for something that more than half of this country does not want for the precise reason that it will be monumentally expensive, adding even more unsustainable debt to our already capsizing national debt).

After President Obama initially claimed he was "confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress" (and by "passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress", he is referring to not one single Republican vote in the House and a win in the Senate by a margin of one vote---thanks, Arlen Specter---this bill could not have been more divided or contrived).

Now, all of a sudden, President Obama is conceding that his administration may be forced to revisit his health care law in his second term, because, you know, it might just be completely unconstitutional and may have been one of the biggest wastes of time and tax dollars in modern history. All of these dollars and hours spent on something that stands a very good chance of being deemed illegal. Thank you, President Obama for all of the waste. Should he eke out a second term we can all look forward to him wasting even more time and tax dollars on rewording the same unconstitutional dribble he spent his first term drafting. Perhaps better confusing and perplexing the American people with an additional 1,000 pages of lawyer-speak very few people can even understand would help. 2,500 pages was not enough, let's break this thing down and take out all the bad stuff with 4,000 pages. 

As ridiculous as that sounds, this is how these individuals think. It is the same dismissive, arrogant, condescending thought process that makes people like Nancy Pelosi say things like "Let's just pass this thing and then we'll see what's in it." That statement captures exactly how stupid and unfit to make our own decisions many of our politicians think we are.

88.1 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day278
