While some will not find this humorous, I think we all need to sit back and smile for once.
Especially with all the seriousness going on in our world, we still need a break from it.
"This was a train wreck for the Obama administration," he said "This law looks like it's going to be struck down," he said. "I'm telling you, all of the predictions including mine that the justices would not have a problem with this law were wrong....Based on what we saw today, I think this law is in grave, grave trouble,"
What would be the ultimate loss here is our Federalist form of Government. It will be lost forever, not even an amendment to the constitution could change such a ruling.Those 5 things, she lists, nails it to what you can expect in your lives, and those of your future generation, will endure if USSC rules in favor of Obamacare, that it is constitutional.
1) The American ideal of freedom
It will strip Americans of the freedoms they hold dear and chisel away their ability to exercise individual liberties and freedoms.
If the law stands, the checks on the government’s power will be all but gone. It will have the power to tell every individual, every religious institution, every family and every business what it must do in order to be an American. Under the false pretense of serving “the public good,”
2) The freedom to purchase whatever product you want with your own money
The government has never been able to force Americans to buy something or pay a penalty in the history of this nation. If the individual mandate is upheld, the Constitution will not protect Americans from any mandate Congress wants to impose.
If Congress decides that Americans aren’t saving enough for retirement, the government could mandate that every individual open a retirement account and require that they fund it a certain level every year.
3) The right to own and operate your small business
Small businesses create over 60 percent of the nation’s new jobs. The job market is stagnant and the health care law has had a palpable chilling effect on the sector and caused many small businesses not to hire.
4) The power to decide what is medically best for our families and businesses
If ObamaCare is upheld, over half of all Americans would be forced onto some type of government-run health-care by the end of the decade. Elite bureaucrats would be in charge of deciding what medical tests you need or should have based on costs.
5) The economic future of this country
ObamaCare is already a significant drag on the nation’s economy and could threaten to sink it even further when the mandate goes into effect in 2014. Not surprisingly, its costs were vastly underestimated during the national debate.
President Obama’s 2013 budget estimated that the cost of providing health insurance to millions of middle-class Americans over ten years will jump by 30 percent.
"The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have receiv'd them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas'd them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath'd to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. - Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom. It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event." – Samuel Adams
The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field. (A Star shall be added for each new state entering the Union)"We read that to her, but she would not accept that," Bradford said. "The discussion finally got a little bit heated."
Your business has recently come under fire by the progressive, left leaning portion of our society. Primarily, over some comments by Rush Limbaugh concerning one Sandra Fluke.
There is an old quote (attributed to Abe Lincoln & poet John Lydgate):
“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.
I urge the business owners to continue with your current business plans/models. If you are seeing good results, from your advertising dollars used on the EIB Network, then continue to advertise with EIB Network.
Now, in those days of yesteryear, it took a little effort to generate a boycott or to express outrage over an issue. Folks had to actually WRITE A LETTER or make a “Long Distance” phone call. These things also cost the consumer some money out of their own pocket. In our modern day, of internet communications and such, that is no longer the case. It only takes ~ 1 minute to set up a Facebook Page and then share it. Even less time to send a tweet. And then, they can make it look even bigger than it really is—- how many folks have multiple Twitter & Facebook ID’s?
This is a typical ‘Temper Tantrum’ type of tactic, that children use when they are told something they don’t like, or don’t want to hear. “Put that back Sally, we can’t afford to buy that toy for you right now.” (Little Sally lays on the floor and screams and flails about causing a big scene in the store.)
Please DO NOT let the OUTRAGE of a small percentage of the populous control or influence your business decisions.
I’ll leave you with this small list of comparisons and the text of the 1st Amendment ;
-If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
-If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
-If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
-If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat it.
If a liberal see an enemy he wonders what he can do to appease him.
-If a conservative is homosexual, he’ll quietly enjoy his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he’ll demand everyone get involved in his bedroom activities.
-If a successful conservative is black or Hispanic, he’ll see himself as having succeeded on his own merits.
Successful liberal minorities still claim “racism” and want government to give them even more.
-If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to work to better his situation.
A liberal wants someone else to take care of him.
-If a conservative is a non-believer, he just doesn’t go to church.
Non-believing liberals demand that everyone cease believing and demands churches be censored.
-If a conservative needs health care, he shops for it, or chooses a job that provides it.
Liberals demand that everyone else provide him with healthcare for free.
-If a conservative sees a law, he thinks long and hard before suggesting a change.
-If a liberal sees a law he assumes it is just a suggestion and does what he wants anyway.
If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
If a liberal doesn’t like a radio show, he demands that the station be shut down or censored.
Conservatives believe in freedom, responsibility, tradition, and self-reliance.
Liberals believe in license, government restrictions, upending tradition, and collectives.
The 1st Amendment that provides Mr. Limbaugh the RIGHT to express his opinions and the Church to be left alone to practice it's faith.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the "free exercise thereof"; "or abridging the freedom of speech," or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

"A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and substantial reason' why he should be permitted to exercise his rights, the right's existence is all the reason he needs."People have the right to carry a gun for self-defense and don't have to prove that there's a special reason for them to seek the permit," said the plaintiff, Raymond Woollard, attorney Alan Gura, who has challenged handgun bans in the District of Columbia and Chicago as an attorney with the Second Amendment Foundation. "We're not against the idea of a permit process, but the licensing system has to acknowledge that there's a right to bear arms."
In addition to self-defense, the (Second Amendment) right was also understood to allow for militia membership and hunting. To secure these rights, the Second Amendment's protections must extend beyond the home: neither hunting nor militia training is a household activity, and 'self-defense has to take place wherever a person happens to be."
