I am frankly astonished that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, bought the bull***t about the ObamaCare individual mandate being a tax, and not a tax, or both being a tax and not being a tax, or some such confusing nonsense. It reminds me of the joke about how many Zen Buddhists it takes to change a light bulb. The answer is four: One to change it, one to not change it, one to both change it and not change it, and one to transcend the experience.
That’s sort of funny. But this ruling is no laughing matter, because there is no way to transcend the experience.
In case anyone was wondering, and I am fairly certain you weren’t, I won’t be purchasing “comprehensive” health insurance. I will continue to purchase my “Hail Mary” policy, now called something else to skirt the BarryCare rules. I will continue to pay for my Pap smears and aspirin and occasional stitches out of pocket. And I won’t pay the damned tax penalty for managing my health care in the way I see fit.
Yeah, you heard me, Barry. F*** you and your tax that isn’t a tax but also is a tax. (Explain to me again why the Anti-Injunction Act doesn’t apply if the tax that isn’t a tax is in fact a tax. That seems odd.) You’re as confused about that as you are about your “date rape” mentality that assures you that doing things to people that they do not want done is totally okay. read more »
