Exactly one month ago I devoted my blog to all things that make me happy. So today I will be happy by ranting about the Supreme Court's recent decision on Obamacare. In this wonderful age of the internet, the supreme court's slip opinion is available for one and all to see.
So what if it's a few hundred pages. Turn off the T.V. and find out for yourself where this country is headed. The first 59 pages are Justice Robert's opinion. Justice Ginsburg's opinion is another 61 pages. Finally, we read the dissenting Justice's opinion. I'd like to throw out a little teaser for you about what the dissenting Justice's opinion contains. There's a little something called "The Act's Minor Provisions," beginning on page 62. "It spends government money on, among other things, the study of how to spend less government money.42 U. S. C. §1315a." This is taken directly from the dissenting opinion. Studying frugality is one thing, implementing it is, apparently, quite another!
Laurel and Hardy, a 1930s comedy team springs to mind. One regularly says to the other "Here's another nice mess you've gotten me into."
If this weren't a tragedy, it would be a comedy!
BTW: Another good read: "Amusing Ourselves to Death" by Neil Postman.
The book is a bit dated, but the content is still great.
