@fixit: Hi, there. Liberal Tyrant here. Let's look at Article I, Section 8 shall we?
In fact, let's look at the FIRST DAMN CLAUSE of Article I, Section 8:
"The Congress shall have the power To lay and collect Taxes and Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States;
So, the general Welfare of the United States is right there with the common Defense as things we communally should provide for...The authors of the Constitution were smart. They knew times change.
Obamacare is law. Funding this is part of providing for the general welfare as outlined in the FIRST DAMN CLAUSE of Article I, Section 8.
But, we liberal tyrants, we always love to get conservative troglodytes squared away about America's Constitution. It's a living document; providing for the common defense involves a lot more than it did in 1789; providing for the general welfare does too; because we Americans are always living and advancing...even in the face of the plutocratic feudal anarchy known as American conservatism.posted @ Tuesday, October 8, 2013 - 22:25

Now, it's prime time.
Prime time to shut down a worthless parasite of a local business, and properly regulate parking in ATown.
All the ACC Commission has to do is to pass an ordinance to prohibit anyone from renting out their parking after hours.
They can then close their parking, leave it open for free, or manage it themselves.posted @ Monday, October 7, 2013 - 11:49

@melmarino: They are requesting a delay in the CR because the President has delayed enacting parts of the ACA?
The CR is a BILL in Congress. The ACA is an enacted LAW.
The GOP is holding up a bill because of an enacted law. Tantrum.
This is unrelated to the President administratively choosing, which the ACA gives him the capacity to do, when to enact portions of Obamacare.
The issue is not constitutionality. The issue is GOP House petulance; petulance that a political price must be exacted from them for.posted @ Sunday, October 6, 2013 - 11:57
[quote][b]melmarino[/b] - @Anonymous Dude: By which I mean that you have not.
Well, no, I did answer your question. The GOP House is NOT delaying Obamacare by shutting down the Federal Government, nor by threatening US default.
That is, if your question was pertaining to Obamacare. The GOP House has no procedural right to re-review an enacted Federal law as if it was once again a bill for them to debate.
Now, if your question was pertaining to the CR, back to my tantrum analogy, since Boehner and the GOP House are stopping a clean CR by invoking an enacted Federal law; Obamacare.
Indeed, whether the law you refer to in your question is the CR or the ACA, the GOP House is still throwing a politically groundless tantrum.posted @ Sunday, October 6, 2013 - 11:09

@Crusader: I wasn't remotely asserting you have harmed me.
I have to say, I find my generalizations to be on the money, especially about Jesus and the moneychangers. If Jesus was alive today, he would be getting arrested at an Occupy Wall Street rally, or would be getting beaten on a picket line.

The hardest lesson Progressive politicos have had to learn:
Conservative politicos cannot be reasoned with, reckoned with, or negotiated with.
They are zealots; bought and paid for by plutocratic greed; and backed up by an electorate blinded by misplaced religion.
They have to be politically crushed. Period.posted @ Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 09:22

I'm not politically affiliated, but if Republicans nominate this worthless flake then their party should experience the laws of evolution first hand and follow quickly the path of the dinosaurs and the dodo!
Bachman, Palin, and Broun --- repent, the end is near!
The new American Progressive mission: Politically beat the Brouns and Bachmanns comatose. Politically beat the crap out of these cretins until the electorate that installed them understands that right wing cretinism is not how America is going to run now.
We Progressives won. And we are going to politically continue to beat the crap out of the religious right idiots whose minds have been bought by the plutocracy.posted @ Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 09:16

Paul Broun's the real deal. If we're lucky enough to get him for a Senator, we won't have to worry about him forgetting us for four of every six years he serves, like all the other Senators do.
Thanks, @KingMinos, for reminding me that, dark as the future of this country looks today, we are not lost yet. We can still choose quality, we can still embrace the time-proven values, we can still make a positive difference--we can send Dr. Paul Brown to the Senate next November!
Dr. Paul Broun is someone who Southern Baptists will continue to elect, for sure. This is why Southern conservatism must be politically beaten until it craps on itself.posted @ Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 09:13

How are they the ones throwing the tantrum again?

[quote][b]King Minos[/b] - @Anonymous Dude: Government is hostage to the global credit market, not Tea Party Republicans! We ought keep in mind, PBO -- and the rest -- have little idea about the way money and governments operate. I'd like to lay blame for that on PBO, but honestly, that would be unfair, as he follows a literal cattle call of unqualified, inexperienced political leaders. Almost all of the extant political leadership got into office in the time of credit bubble 'milk and honey.' Voters, then, could indulge themselves imaging the election of a 1/2 black man would represent "great progress" in an America too often viewed as "racists and too white!" Other times, voters elected leaders vowing to put a stop to marriage between two men; and then someone who 'felt our pain'! But, back to the story ....
If the shut-down lasts to mid-October, and we start closing in on the debt ceiling, likely PBO would trot out a U.S. Treasury official to announce an impending U.S. default. Markets would yo-yo, on cue, but also know the default was a political stunt, and not evidence that the borrower couldn't or wouldn't "pay as agreed." Those, 'other,' defaults are the ones that can make currencies crash, and interest rates skyrocket.
Chances are, leaders will panic as the market yo-yo heats up, and financial authorities begin to shout and point fingers; then we'll have some corrective policy produced, again, by "crisis" government. THEN, back to normal until the next opportunity to do the whole thing over!
No matter if you are a dem or republican, you likely are to witness a long period of government infighting as the U.S. economy slowly recognizes a new global Depression. In fact, what we see today -- government shutdown -- is nothing new but a continuation of the sort of stuff we saw when FDR plowed ahead with his New Deal to treat his Depression. The change to look for and hope far is some sign of sustainable, rising prosperity for America; I see, now, another bubble economy bound to crash, again; crashing commodity prices and employment and stark deflation in spite of promised "money" helicopters! And divided government and people as far as the eye can see, or the brain can imagine. There will be no near term Deliverance; and as you strike at the serpent's head, so shall he strike at thou heel. The new normal.
Your astute comments here tell me that our President INDEED knows how money and markets operate. Intimately.
If Obama was not so skilled in bringing the plutocracy down a peg or two, the Republicans would not be throwing the useless tantrum they are now.
And Republicans WILL pay dearly for their present antics. Politically, Republicans, by putting Senator Cruz at the head of their efforts, have proven themselves cretins in the very medieval French meaning of the word.
They must be handled as such.posted @ Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - 08:52
