The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) affirmed the constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care (OBAMACARE) act today.  That is, of course, the law offered by President Obama (POTUS).  About half of the citizens of the United States (COTUS) applauded, the other half - including Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (LOONEYBIRD) of Minnesota were apoplectic.  (Hmm, I wonder if apoplexy is treatable under the new law.)  The noted Supreme Court expert (SCOTUS-EX), Jeffery Toobin, apologized for his earlier prediction that the law would be found unconstitutional and his criticism of the government's attorney.

The House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor, (SMIRKER), who wears a snide expression on his face when he's announcing his totally political acts, said there would be a vote in the House on July 11th to repeal the law.  That is headed for failure, even if the radical Tea Party Republicans do vote to repeal.  It probably will not even be brought to a vote in the (thankfully) Democratic Senate.

The Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney (CLUELESS) misstated many aspects of the bill and said he would repeal it on his first day in office if (and today he did say "if") he's elected.

Meantime, some of the loudest opponents of this so called "socialized medicine" turn out to be folks who've been cashing in on Veterans Administration healthcare (socialized medicine) for decades.

As the comedian Yakov Smirnoff is fond of saying, "what a country!"


  1. I enjoy my Medicare Plan (socialized medicine)especially last Sunday when Cakes and I drove through Lake Sherwood (homes from 4.5 million and up)and I realized I was no longer contributing to Blue Cross of California president's lifestyle.

  2. Bruce the Catalyst (WISEGUY) has done a beautiful job of lampooning the key players (BUFFOONS) who
    conduct our government (TRAINWRECK). Increasingly it is the best that money can buy (CONGRESS).

  3. Until now I haven't been too impressed with our Chief Justice but I think he has just shown a Profile in Courage.

  4. You are hilarious - thanks for the laugh (LOONEYBIRD - ha!)

  5. Always having a good time reading your posts and we'll have to wait till 2014 to know if Apoplexia is indeed treated under the new plan.
    Hocus Pocus!

  6. Politics is not for the faint of heart.

  7. This is the best summary on this subject I've heard. I've been shaking my head at so many of the right wing looney's comments I've given myself a headache.
