So, Er, Tell Us Again How We’re Supposed to “Work Within the System” to Change This Again?

It’s been fun (for values of “fun”) watching how the last shreds of the Republic have been burned to ashes, then pissed upon by the new Imperial Government in Washington DC, hasn’t it?

We mean, first we get the unelected Black Robed Tyrants deciding that when ObongoCare says “subsidies are only for states with ObamaExchanges”, it doesn’t actually mean “subsidies are only for states with ObamaExchanges”, but “subsidies are for all states.”

Why? Because the Supreme “Court” says so, that’s why. They alone know what the legislature really meant when they wrote a law, you see, and it is up to them to tell us unwashed serfs what that is, even when what they “meant” (as per a handful of unelected fascists) is exactly the opposite of what they wrote and passed as a law.

And there is fuck all you can do about it, peasant. Because those elite patricians of SCOTUS can’t be unelected and, more importantly, they’re the only “coequal” branch of governments whose diktats can’t be overruled. The other, not quite as “coequal”, branches don’t have that luxury. And their diktats, unlike mere laws passed by elected representatives of the people they rule over, stand forever, because whenever another case comes up, stare decisis, that abortion of a “principle”, demands that a decision, however ancient, must still be adhered to.

Fun having a Republic, wasn’t it? We must remember to tell our children and grandchildren of it when they get old enough to not believe a word of what we’re saying.

Oh, and how about the same sex marriage diktat? That was fun too, wasn’t it? Now gays not only can “marry”, they have a RIGHT to marry, no matter what you idiot peasants say. Yet another SCOTUS-invented right nowhere to be found in the Constitution.

Next up: They also have a RIGHT to be married in your church. And to order you to bake them a cake. Mandatory fellatio will come at a date to be determined. We’re only half joking about that last one.

So, er, goodbye to freedom of religion as well. Oh sure, you can still believe in what you want, but you no longer have a right to follow your religious conscience (right actually defined in the Constitution) if it might override gays’ right to tell you to shut up and do as you’re told (right NOT ANYWHERE mentioned, hinted at or penumbraed from emanations in the Constitution).

So tell us again how just holding our nose and voting for Jeb in 2016 is going to fix all of this, huh?

Thatisall.

I just read something that the State AG of Texas told the various clerks they can refuse to issue Homosexual’s marriage certificates on religious grounds. I’ve heard rumors that the homosexuals are starting to look at forcing churches to marry them. That will cause violence. Priests, Rabbi’s, Ministers might be big on turning the other cheek, but I doubt many of their parishioners are going to allow them to be taken away in cuffs. Game on is getting closer with each stupid decision by the courts.There might be one unintended consequence of the ruling. It cold mean that CCW permits… Read more »

It was a good run while it lasted. Yep. DC has given me a few too many ‘and the horse you rode in on’ moments in the last week or so.

Quite frankly, I do not think that they understand consequences. If they blatantly are going to rub our noses in the fact that the “Rule of Law” is dead and now flout their “Rule however the fuck I want depending on my mood at the moment”, well, that clearly establishes that there is no reason to follow ANY “law”, since Natural Law was just gored and killed last week. Fuck them, fuck them all and my the Lord above call all of them home today and judge them accordingly. Unfortunately, that will not be done because this country has a… Read more »

It’s not that priests and pastors will be hauled off in cuffs – it’s that individually-targeted churches will have their assets (i.e. buildings) confiscated when they can’t pay the lawsuits and that churches, synagogues, etc. across the board will have their tax-exempt status removed.

That’s the goal, anyway. A columnist in Time magazine (which is a helluva lot more mainstream than, say, The Nation, where this clown also writes) said that it’s time to do away with that, and let the Government pick up the charity that the churches would then drop.

Time for the Catacombs.

I’m suing Kate Upton. I have the RIGHT to marry, so she’s violating my Civil Rights by not letting me marry her and her gigantic fun-bags. And Zero better light up the White House on the wedding night, because otherwise, H8R you guys.

Most of the churches and synagogues have been sapped and drained by the Leftist infiltration — the antisocial injustice wankers have turned the sermons into leftwing drivel and diatribes for the most part. The Reformed synagogues joke that they’re “the Democratic Party at prayer.” Don’t look for the institutions to withstand this assault. If they were still true Christians and true Jews, they would try. I predict most of them will cave right in. Only the rock-ribbed fundamentalists, God bless them, will stick to their guns; and the Orthodox Jews will hang tough. The Leftists, bearing in mind that the… Read more »

As the “Great Helmsman” said, Political power grows from the barrel of a gun. Our enemies have the absolute right to receive what passes our muzzles.

I’m kinda non-denominational myself. But this I’ll fight for. Liberty or death.

I see a sudden rise in Church Burnings. . . of confiscated churches. . .

Priests, Rabbis, Ministers are big on turning the other cheek.

The parishioners?

Not so much.

I see lots lawyers and plaintiffs becoming feather covered Christmas tree ornaments.

“Next up: They also have a RIGHT to be married in your church. And to order you to bake them a cake.”

Only a true fool would ever force someone to be compelled to prepare food for them against the preparer’s will, under penalty of fine or imprisonment. They’d get their cake, but eventually someone would be forced to ponder why it tasted of bitter almonds instead of vanilla bean. And the cleanup after that one would be hell.

Lovely sentiments, DJ, except that the .gov has decided that that option isn’t available to white, Christian, hetrosexual males…

Ace of Spades has an excellent summation on the real threat posed by the Supreme Court’s recent conduct. It is far deeper than just suing Christian churches out of existence.

The Leftists’ gang rape of Christians and America continues. Rush was asking why more people aren’t openly rebelling against the trashing and burning of everything we hold dear — I say people are justifiably scared shitless of the LEFTWING LYNCH MOB. They see how the LEFTWING LYNCH MOB is attacking across the board, ruining people’s lives, bankrupting them, swarming them online like killer bees; they see how the LEFTWING BROWNSHIRTS are attacking even a billionaire like Donald Trump and trying their damnedest to destroy his business; they see the LEFTWING STASI are intimidating even big corporations to fold up like… Read more »

I’m going to hijack the topic. A true hero passed away the other day. Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved the lives of over 600 Jewish children just prior to WW2, passed away in England. He was 106.

Please pause in your remarks and reflect on the passing of a truly great man.

I do support the state’s right on that, DJ. So in turn, you should be into South Carolina flying the Southern Cross where ever they damn well please and no Yankee lib can say shit about it. DJ, it is nice to say how folks will choose to shop elsewhere and tell their family about these discriminatory businesses but the fact is the extreme left is at war and looking to settle scores. You can choose to act like the ROTC kid at the end of Animal House telling us to be calm and all is well but we both… Read more »
