Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 15th,2016

.. Professor William Jacobson is a well – known academic at Cornell University Law School School [in Ithaca , NY] . I am a longtime participant and fan of his blog, Legal Insurrection . From that , I became a Facebook friend of his …

.. no , I do not know his politics . He is a philosophical conservative , that is for sure . However , he could even be conservative Democrat . To be honest , I do not mind . He is an honest philosophical broker , which to me means a great deal …

.. Professor Jacobson and his wife recently took a 2 – week long trip to Israel . They travel extensively throughout the country , talking to many people of many political and philosophical stripes , especially on the center and the center – left . His take is very intriguing ..

.. they are not enamoured with Bibi . They sure as hell did not vote for him . However , these folks do respect him . He has balls of steel . Conssidering the treatment that Israel gets on the international stge , these folks feel that Bibi is the only major Israeli leader that can stand up to these people . …

.. their opinion of His Lordship [Obama] is far worse . They like him political , which is obvious . However , they do not respect him , not one bit . They do not feel that POTUS cares not one whit for Israel , and may actually hate Israel , and with a deep passion . One in which the future security and existence of the Jewish state is in question …

.. Professor William Jacobson (Cornell University Law School) was a guest of F. Lee Levin [Mark Levin] on his radio show . I highly recommend his blog , LegalInsurrection , as it covers topics beyond the law . It covers a lot of law , some politics , but a chunk of culture , too …

.. a good chunk of his interview covers what is known as the B.D.S. movement on campuses , vis-a-vis Israel . What does the B.D.S. stand for — B is for boycott , D is for divestment , and S is for sanctions … before you ask , hell yes , it is anti – semitic ! …

Barrycade

1. A barrier (usually temporary) that exists for no reason. 2. A barrier erected for political reasons. “Dude, Obama barrycaded the park.”

“Hey, let’s put up some barrycades to keep those World War II veterans away from the open-air World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., in order to try and score some cheap political points.”

.. o.k. , I get to do this one over again …

[h/t John McCormack , TWS , and Professor William Jacobsen , Legal Insurrection]

.. What are these idiots thinking ? The absolute gall of the ObamaCraps doing incredibly insensitive and foolish stuff , such as this . Why ? …

.. It appears that the ObamaCraps are continuing to follow what is known in the political trade as the ” Washington Monument ” shutdown strategy . It means that they highlight the most prominent and the most obvious shutdown possibilities , thereby ganering the most media coverage , and the most publicity . In this case , these ObamaCraps are taking it to a whole new level .

.. These closures are of open – air spaces , and outdoor veterans memorials , such as the Vietnam Veterans memorial , and the United States Marine Corps ‘ Iwo Jima , are the height of insult to all of us …

… Oh , You Said that ObamaCrapCare Would not lead to Single – Payer ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 12th,2013

from the Washington Examiner : …

..NPR’s Steve Inskeep pressed for more clarity. “Can you say flat out it’s just never going to be single-payer health insurance and we’re going to try to write it if we can so that it won’t ever be?” he asked.

..“Oh, I think – I think that’s very much the case,” Sebelius replied. “And again, if you want anybody to convince people of that, talk to the single-payer proponents, who are furious that the single payer idea is not part of the discussion.”

.. That’s not true , according to “Dingy Harry ” Reid. “What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” he said on “Nevada Week in Review” on Friday evening, before saying that the United States needs to develop a single-payer plan. “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”

.. It figures . She is a notorious liar . And , good ol ‘ Dingy Harry is worse . The “public option” that those numb – nuts wanted to include is basically a single – payer health care system . The only payer would be the government itself . All private transactions in health insurance and health would be , as I would think , be banned or outlawed . Good luck trying that in this country .

.. ObamaCrapCare is already on the verge of collapse . Costs are soaring . People realized that they have been defrauded , and have been sold a false bill of goods , a colossal stinker of epic proportions .

.. The dummies on Crapitol Hill keep on forgetting some basic laws , such as : [-] the law of supply and demand ; add on more requirements , and keep on cutting reimbursements to doctors , pharmacists , and hospitals , and you will send costs into orbit ; [-] the law of unintended consequences — all sorts of changes are occuring that those dummies never though of , or anticipated ; and [-] the law of human nature — nice one , dummies — decades of cost controls are blowing up in all of our faces .

Anyone surprised that Democrats envision Obamacare morphing into single payer hasn’t been listening to what Democrats have been saying.

The collapse of the private insurance market under Obamacare isn’t a bug, it’s a feature.

But you would have known that if you had been reading Legal Insurrection in the summer of 2009, including Deception and Tyranny Key To Health Care Reform:

The only way the Obama administration and Democrats can force through the types of changes they envision for the health care system is through deception and tyranny.
