Quote of the day—Windy Wilson

So, now with words having no meaning until the court interprets them for the masses, we do not know what any law means until it comes back from the high priests holy of holies. The Senate and Congress no longer need the high salaries they get, nor do they need to be in session more than a week or so out of the year. They no longer need staffs of statute writers, since all they need to do is give the high priests of law a general request. Perhaps the title, and some language analogous to asking a tailor for a fully custom suit. It took over 100 years for the Administrative State to swallow Congress through the actions of this administration, I don’t think the next step, eliminating Congress as legislature will take as long.

Comment to Quote of the day—Robert W. Tyson
[This was in reference to the SCOTUS decision in regards to subsides for Obamacare.

Everything I have to say about this ruling Ry and I have said before in regards to a previous Obamacare SCOTUS decision. It’s good to have clarity.—Joe]

  1. “Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under” H L Mencken

  2. Did you catch the quote from Roberts, from the next case, Obergefell v. Hodges, in his dissent?

    As reported in the National Journal: While Roberts said he did not “begrudge” any of the celebrations that would follow the Court ruling, he had serious concerns that the Court had extended its role from constitutional enforcer to activist.

    • The WSJ quoted him “under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be”. It goes on to say “The Chief is correct on the merits, but his own judicial restraint in this case would have more credibility had he not the day before expanded judicial power in order to rewrite and save Obamacare”.

      I would put it more succinctly: if you have no principles — as he doesn’t — you have no way to make good decisions.

  3. Roberts will, I think, go down in history as a bad justice, and this will be the “Dredd Roberts” decision. So far removed from the text of the constitution that from here on out, it’s anything goes. Right up until they start getting shown the error of their ways, hoist by their own petard, as it were, in a manner similar to Robespierre. (Of course, the Dred Scott decision was actually the right one,from a technical legal standpoint, just on the wrong side of history. King v Burwell will be the wrong decision for all the wrong reasons, and come back to haunt him. At least, I really, REALLY hope so. It’ll surely haunt the rest of us).
