Yeah, "democracy died" because one of the conservative wackos on the Supereme Court didn't have the stomach to take away health insurance from 30 million people with no legal basis just to follow the party line, thus plummeting us into an age where the entire system is as broken as Congress.

jesus, how the fuck did we turn this stupid? These people are literally talking about shooting people because they're so mad that they can stay on their parents' health insurance a couple extra years and can't lose coverage because of a pre-existing condition.

I only wish I could find out how angry they would've been if we got a better, less compromised reform bill through.

Motherfucker comparing better health coverage to SLAVERY. Is there a button on twitter for punching a dude in the balls? I will gladly pay a ball-punching tax.

My favorite comments must be the guy who says "They have raped the U.S. Constitution."  I don't know how that's even physically possible.  I mean, do you roll up the constitution first and then go at it?  Or is the guy imagining that the Constitution is anthropomorphized like the Bill in that School House Rock video?  It boggles the mind!

How about the one that mentioned rape without lubrication? Is rape with lubrication somehow more humane or preferred in some way? Perhaps if rapists carried around lubrication, there would be less people objecting to it and hence less cases of rape.

 

The partisanship has gotten so bad that hyperbole has replaced any semblance of rational discussion. It really does not matter who does what or what the reasons behind anything is. The line is drawn such that you are either a friend or an enemy and the gulf between the two can never be met. A single point of contention will doom anyone.

 

It's just not possible to talk anymore.

The best part is listening to Mitt Romney being forced to stand in front of the American people and act self-righteously appalled at the idea that the Supreme Court upheld a law THAT HE BASICALLY WROTE. He's normally utterly shameless, but this time you can see the pain behind those eyes.

This is a very good article on how the judgment came about and why it was reasoned the way it was.

 

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34.....-care-law/ 

 

I think people sometimes stop thinking of people as rational beings with their own ways of thinking and interpretation of law and the reach of the government and more as black or white individuals who are either with or against them in their beliefs, which both sides can be accused of doing.

 

What occurred in that judgment was incredibly nuanced. Basically is boiled down to Chief Justice Roberts wanting to let the elected government do their job while also not wanting to set precedent to expand the reach of the commerce clause.
