I think the ultimate implication here is, unless the Halbig decision is reversed, that Obamacare has to go. There’s no way the Democrats who live outside those 14 states with state exchanges are going to be able to continue to support the existence of Obamacare if all it means in their state is that poor people now are going to be penalized if they don’t buy health insurance, which is where we’re left by the ruling at the moment.
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is the way the game works. If you think it’s just a game about ideology and politics, again, I say you’re wrong.

They’re all about the boatloads of federal money. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Why is it any different for the State to compel a business person to pay someone for a service that is rendered, and voluntary service that is rendered, at a preordained or predetermined price? Why shouldn’t the State then be able to compel, or why shouldn’t the store be able to use the power of the State to compel the consumer to spend a minimum amount?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It’s all regulated by the state. These things are operated under the supervision of these god-awful things called public service commissions. All they do is ensure that the utility is guaranteed to make a vast, vast profit on the sale.

There are all kinds of things that could happen if there was competition for the generation of electricity. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The American sheeple want free airports. The American sheeple want the TSA. The American sheeple want all the subsidized power companies. The American sheeple want their vainglorious military dispatched hither and yon to every corner of the globe. The American people want nonstop, never-ending war, it seems.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Brian Watson writes: “Mike, why is a petroleum company marketing for common core?” Brian, that is a damned good question, sir. I believe I can provide you and the rest of the audience with a very good answer. Here’s what I wrote to Brian: “Brian, the answer is that Exxon would not have to foot the bill to train scientists and mathematicians to employ. The Feds will do it and thus they obtain a subsidy worth tens of billions.” Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – LeBron never went to college. I would also ask the question: Who benefits by forcing some of these young people to go to college? If you listen to this show, you know an awful lot about what is not taught at universities, which is classical liberal education, most universities anyway. What is the benefit from sending them to the school to start with? If they’re professing that they want to pursue a career in football, baseball, basketball, whatever the case may be, then let them pursue it. The NCAA ought to be a facilitator of this.
