Here it is in its entirety: 193 pages of politicized goodness, or for the time press-ones, one quick word cloud.

First, in abbreviated version courtesy of a word cloud.

And the full thing:

Let's see... the states owe Uncle Sugar how many billion in UE benefit loans again? They haven't even started paying interest yet, let alone principal. Every time some state AG gets all mouthy you start seeing stories in the news about the interest payments; then everyone STFU and GBTW.

Not to mention they've got their hands out waiting for the "robo-signing" settlement, as they have no chance to come up with a workable budget otherwise.

I like the way the word cloud shows "power" "government" and "tax" larger than "individual" and "justice".  

It's funny cuz it's true.

I think Lew Rockwell hit the nail on the head today when he wrote, " John Marshall, though this was no surprise to the Anti-Federalists, who correctly saw the Constitution as a centraizing, big-government coup against the Articles."

I can just about make out the word ‘Constitution’ in there. I think I’m right in saying that is what explains what a federal government can do. Perhaps instead of producing a 193 page document, they could have simply read that, it would have been a lot quicker.

I like how the cloud align the words:

 

* "states see individuals"

* "power act independent"

and for the win:

* "purchase justice business"

key word is tax.  Employment to population ratio is going to have another leg down from 58.7% to 55% ..which is at least another 10 million jobs lost.. 10 milion jobs that pay payroll taxes and income taxes.  Where is new tax revenue going to come from???  This insurance tax is one answer.

next is no more paper money .. all electronic so to capture all taxes.

they will tax the shit out of everything they can

or, bust?

I was going to say that as well.. but I suppose I don't want to come out and support such things.. better yet, I say cue self employment.. in the sense of employing oneself to do services one might have normally spend money on.  I.E. grow own food, cut own hair or have spouse cut hair, clean own house, cut own grass, do own taxes, etc.  self employment bitchez!

No need to read the whole decision, if our owners want the rules changed they will just change them back.

I will enjoy the election season where Mittens will be forced to say he will appeal something he was the inspiration for.

I can't wait to see what the Fed.GOV is going to force me to buy or be fined, I mean taxed.

Want to buy a Toyota? OK, but you have to pay the "didn't buy a Government Motors" fine, I mean tax.

The "Eat your f'ing peas" fine, I mean tax. The "Get a gym membership, you fat bastard" fine, I mean tax.

The possibilities are, simply, endless.

Federal government tyranny does not flow from the commerce clause, it flows the 16th amendment authorizing the income tax, the direct tax on persons.

The income tax is where control flows from.  

Whether it be charities, and churches and what they can do and say, whether it be selective audits of political enemies, whether it be what corporations can spend on, IRAs, 401ks, what we can donate (remember Clinton's underwear), what size house we can buy (mortgage deduction not for over $1M), the alternative minimum tax, whether we can take money out of the country, and whether we can even leave the country.  And what health care we must buy.

My interpretation: The Supreme Court recognizes the threat of state secession, and the implied threat of a New Civil War, and they are encouraging / hastening for it.

So, we have a tax, actually labled as a penalty, that does not apply equally to all (i.e. those who have insurance) ...

I call BULLSHIT! ...

The most straightforward reading of the individual mandate is that it commands individuals to purchase insurance. But, for the reasons explained, the Commerce Clause does not give Congress that power. It is therefore necessary to turn to the Government’s alternative argument: that the mandate may be upheld as within Congress’s powerto “lay and collect Taxes.” Art. I, §8, cl. 1. In pressing its taxing power argument, the Government asks the Court to view the mandate as imposing a tax on those who do not buy that product. Because “every reasonable construction must be resorted to, in order to save a statute from unconstitutionality,” [...] the question is whether it is “fairly possible” to interpret the mandate as imposing such a tax, [...] CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS delivered the opinion of the Court with respect to Part III–C, concluding that the individual mandate may be upheld as within Congress’s power under the Taxing Clause. ...

Beginning in 2014, those who do not comply with the mandate must make a “[s]hared responsibility payment” to the Fed- eral Government. §5000A(b)(1). The Act provides that this “penalty” will be paid to the Internal Revenue Service with an individual’s tax- es, and “shall be assessed and collected in the same manner” as tax penalties. §§5000A(c), (g)(1).

It's a tax. Supreme Court says so.....

Gimme a clue...how much is this going to cost ummmm..46 million americans?

http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/medicarehealthinsurance/a/insurancestats.htm

No date on the article, looks like 2007? Are these 46 million going to pay c. $3,000 so will have to stump up $138 billion that, presumably, they didnt think they needed? How many actually abused the health care system? 1%, 5% or 10%? So once again, around 90% of people who are healthy and who don't need health insurance now have to pay for it? Sounds like a tax to me! Who needs 75% of Homeland security or the pentagon or the CIA or NASA or....etc etc. Sounds like the insurance lobby paid a few million to a few judges and the POTUS is putting upa  smoke screen. It doesn' tmatter what its called "penalty" or "tax"; its a regular payment to insurance companties they didnt have before and is backed by fines paid to the Government if they choose not to avoid paying premiums. I wonder how much the insurance companies can increse premiums by before someone notices and we have "fraudsurancegate".


The Affordability Factor
In 2007 the Census Bureau reported that more than 14 million people without health insurance earned annual incomes of at least $50,000, with 7.2 million of them making over $75,000.

In December 2007, the Association of Health Insurance Plans issued a report showing that nationwide annual premiums for private health insurance policies averaged from $2,613 for individuals to $5,799 for families.
