Some theorize that Chief Justice John Roberts was intimidated into voting for ObamaCare when it came up in front of SCOTUS (and was ultimately upheld by the Court.) There is also some thought that Roberts actually changed his vote and was originally planning to vote against ObamaCare. I have to say if someone other than Senator Mike Lee was proposing all this in a new book I would dismiss it out of hand. But it’s Mike Lee. I’ve met him. He’s brilliant. Glenn Beck interviewed Mike Lee on his show Tuesday. This is MUST-SEE video:
Journalist Who Brought Down Gen McChrystal Dies in Car Accident “Hastings’ unvarnished 2010 profile of McChrystal in the pages of Rolling Stone, “The Runaway General,” captured the then-supreme commander of the U.S.-led war effort in Afghanistan openly mocking his civilian commanders in the White House.” Hmmm…..
And finally – a description of Obama as only a Russian immigrant could tell it:
President Obama’ Rhetoric Matches That of Old Soviet Leaders “President Obama insists his policies are driven by a “common sense” approach. He also speaks in terms of “we the people” and “the government is us.” Such declarations are reminiscent of old Soviet posters displayed for all to see: “ALL POWER BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE” and “PEOPLE AND COMMUNIST PARTY ARE ONE.”
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!

We could all use some humor. Here are some of the funnier lines I have seen on the NSA spy scandal.
Hey, let’s trust our privacy to people who spend millions of dollars on “opposition research” to get elected.“your privacy is important to me,” said the guy who’s president only because of the release of 2 different sealed divorced proceedings.Does the NSA have access to Obama’s college transcripts?Man, I feel like a sap for buying online storage when the NSA was doing it for free.If you still think there are problems to which the solution is “more government,” go play in traffic.
The White House today closed the gift shop and opened a Verizon store after it was revealed that the National Security Agency seized millions of Verizon phone records. How ironic is that? We wanted a president who listens to all Americans. Now we have one.
President Obama clarified the situation today. He said no one is listening to your phone calls. He said it’s not what the program is all about. You know, like the IRS targeting certain political groups. That’s not what it’s about.
The White House is looking through our phone records, checking our computers, monitoring our emails. When did the government suddenly become our psycho ex-girlfriend? When did that happen?
The IRS has taken some heat for reportedly spending $4 million on a conference in Anaheim last year, where employees took dancing lessons. One of the dances they learned? Tap dancing around the issues.
If Obama wants to put this snooping thing to good use, how about spying on the IRS the next time they throw a $4 million party? Why don’t you do that?
