Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 7th,2015

.. well , they did ..

.. now , the employer mandate finally takes effect ..

.. it will make carrying health insurance for employees a colossal and royal pain in the neck …

.. [h/t — DailySignal.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. then , there is the expansion of the individual mandate …. that is , presuming , a 6 to 3 majority does not rip the [bleep] out of the heart of it in June when King v Burwell is decided by the US Supreme Court ….

.. if that happens , then POTUS is going to have to come to Congresss in order to get a ObamaCrapCare repair bill passed . as a result , Congress will have a strong bargaining position in order to get substantial changes to the whole damn mess if His Lordship wants to get a bill passed …

Alex Rodriguez in a game on 5/26/08

… Alex Rodriguez … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

.. and do so , now ! .

.. Having a player such as Alex Rodriguez on the field right now is an outrage . He has been suspended for a great many games by baseball . Albeit , it was done under the Joint Drug Program , and under the Collective Bargaining Agreement .

.. His case is unique . He hass , and has done so an an illegal manner . he has obstructed a legal invesigation , and has obstructed and intefered with MLB ‘ s own investigation into the Biogenesis scandal . He has grossly flouted the rules , and has done so on multiple occasions . His prescence on the playing field is a disgrace , and brings dishonour to the game . Yes , there should be due process . But , what kind of due process ?

.. Normally , a player can appeal a suspension , and continue to play . However , the commisioner ‘ s office has wide powers . They have been tirmmed , somewhat , given the strength and power of the players ‘ union . But , not much .

.. The commissioner was given those powers when the office of the commissioner was created for a reason . The commissioner was given enormous power in order to act “in the best interests of baseball . ” I believe that those interests would  be best served by sending Alex Rodriguez to the bench . For good . It should do so , now .

… there is an Added Problem with the Mandate ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 17th,2012

… it is something that i have never heard spoken about , or debated about , on radio , on TV , or in the blogosphere …

… the individual mandate is a ” bill of attainder . ”

… a what ? …

… for those who do not know our Constitution , it is a provision of our learned document (Article 1 , Section 9) . It is an act of a legislature , in this case , Congress , that is meant to punish a person , or , a group of person , without the judgement of a judicial proceeding …

{wikipedia} def of attainder –> meaning taintedness

… in simple , the Mandate , acting as a penalty , is , i believe , a Bill of Attainder , and should have been thrown out on the spot by the courts , definitely by the U. S. Supreme Court …
