The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…

13 March 2010 @ 17:20

…is awarded to Steve  Schippert, U.S. Marine retired, for his thrashing and vanquishing of ‘The Slaughter Solution’ [emphasis mine]:

And, to put it plainly, there is tyranny afoot and it must be confronted and defeated with confidence, determination and passion. The confrontation is not about health care or any other piece of legislation. It is not about politicians, politics or parties.

The confrontation is about process. The confrontation is about fidelity to the Constitution.

House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter says she is “prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill.” She continued, explaining how House passage of a separate bill containing “changes” to the Senate version would lead House leadership to “deem” the actual Senate HealthCare Bill passed – without a direct vote.

This is not simply tyrannical in nature, it is absolute political cowardice.

Whether any American likes or dislikes any bill – any bill – none of us are governed under a Constitution nor any Congress within a Constitution that affords for an individual in an elected body to “deem” anything. We elected you, for better or worse, to vote on legislation, whether we like the specific outcome or not. There is a process within both the letter and spirit of the Constitution.

The notion of anyone “deeming” anything “passed” without going through the actual voting process of real passage is the kind of governance seen in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq or Bashar Assad’s Syria or Castro’s Cuba.

Few things in this lifetime have inspired such furious rage as this brazen attempt to undermine the legislative process as set forth within the Constitution of the United States.

Dead.  Solid.  Perfect.

The brazenness of these arrogant cretins is stroke-inducing.

We are in a situation akin to The Civil War and The War For Independence.  On the Day Of Judgement, will we be able to look The Founders in the eye in the knowledge that we measured up to their example?

[Big and grateful tip of the fedora to Carol, mistress of No Sheeples Here, for turning me on to Mr. Schippert’s posting.]  Carol, as you might expect, has produced a great little Photoshop for her posting:

Bravo, Carol — it’s one of your best.
