Who sent this F**KING SOB a PAIR?

No-one.  This is the most cowardly thing he could have done.  It just happens to also be the best thing for the market.

This is prima facie evidence that Obama in fact serves no master but himself.  He merely does what is in his own by definition short term interests.  The same goes for any politician.  If there ever was some vast conspiracy to create a one world government or anything like that, it would be doomed to failure the second that it became politically expedient for some powerful politician to veto it.

@ tmosley

I agree. You and I think the same way.

Obama is trying to turn America into some sort of perverse one world government (as you stated), that combines African politics with Nazi and Marx influences. 

I've heard from confidential sources that the next Chief of Staff is a real Maasai Chief straight from Kenya - Adolf the Maasai Warrior, or something like that.    

How long before ObamaCare (which is just thinly disguised eugenics) will create a nation full of basketball players? Our grandmothers shouldn't have to hide in our bunkers!  That's bullshit! 

I truly fear for America. Who is Obama?  Why is he black?  Why was he born in Kenya?  Why is his name Obama - that's a fucking weird name. 

We need to return America to its rightful owners...people like you and me.

I want my country back!!

Credit the internet community for exposing this. Our congress and senate work for the banks. I will not capitalize the names out of disrespect.

Here's one you might not have heard about:

S510 Food Safey Bill.  Kiss you local, small farm options GOODBYE.



From Campaign for Liberty:

As I said earlier, our own Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) is still a cosponsor of this bill.  Despite the surge in demands for limited, constitutional government, Senator Burr still can't see how bad this bill is.  That's why he needs to hear from you!

Contact Richard Burr's office today at 202-224-3154 or email his office at chris_joyner@burr.senate.gov.  Tell him to join Senator Coburn's stand against this bill and to vote against it when Congress returns next month.

Dear Ripped - Here I was all happy that Obama finally did something right and then I saw your post.  Unfortunately, you're probably right.

I always appreciate and usually agree with your posts.  However, I think your belief in an electoral solution is uncharacteristically naive.

I mean look at this bill - passed on a voice vote.  Nobody cares about the electorate.

Fix this stupid headline you MORON.

A pocket veto is exactly the same as signing it -- 100% the opposite of a veto.  It is arguably the most asinine term in our political system.

A pocket veto is a legislative maneuver in United States federal lawmaking that allows the President to indirectly veto a bill. The U.S. Constitution requires the President to sign or veto any legislation placed on his desk within ten days (not including Sundays) while the United States Congress is in session. From the U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 7 states:

If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a Law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a Law.

Yeah... I also just assumed 'pocket veto' meant he'd actually veto it... But that only applies if congress adjourns in the next 10 days. Otherwise it is passed into law by default.

FYI for anyone else: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocket_veto

But that only applies if congress adjourns in the next 10 days.

The bill must be returned to the body where the bill originated - in this case, the House of Representatives.  On Sept 29, the House voted to adjourn, pending the clean-up of some last-minute business.  That was a week ago.  If they have not left town, they surely will before the next 10 days is up.  No one left for the President to return it to at the end of 10 days.

as many people who live in a police state would mention (if they were allowed to speak) is that under a dictator, the power of that dictator actually improves by maintaining a system at the ragged edge of chaos.

the idea that this VETO helps people is ridiculous.  importantly for any dictator, it *creates chaos* in which case everyone is so busy protecting themselves from the IRS bogeyman, the SEC bogeyman, the FINRA bogeyman, and these fine organizaitons are adding staff members by the HOUR in service of our great dictator. 

yes under a system in total chaos the *real problems* are swept under the rug as everyone lives in morbid fear of the *authorities* who do nothing more than tax the common people in glorification of themselves.

one need not look further than Venezuela with Chavez to understand that one need not have an organized system in order to achieve one's political means.  one only needs a totally chaotic system in order to loot that very system while everyone worries about themselves vs working "collectively" on real solutions which actually improve peoples lives.

what this action accomplishes is precisely the problem most Americans fear the most:  granting more power to the "Populist State" through whom all things are controlled.

If the world were fair and everyone acted altruistically we wouldn't need lawyers.  I am sure that in a principaled libertopian universe lawyers are unnecessary, however, in the 'real world' TPTB have created obfuscated laws that require lawyers to navigate.  The reality is, when you make a mistake on this scale, you hurt people, and the lawyers get rich.

I would counter your paranoia with my equally paranoid statement: TPTB make us hate lawyers so we don't litigate and stand up for our rights.

There are too many lawyers.  Most are parasitic scum.

Where I live there really are no lawyers, courts are impossibly clogged and slow by design.  You assume your own risks and if there is a problem, you just work it out on your own, party to party.  People are free-er and happier without the oppressive burden.
