If Obamacare Individual Mandate Is Unconstitutional Socialism, Why Isn’t It The Same When The GOP Proposes It?

Either the ObamaCare mandate is unconstitutional in all its forms or its not. Here we are faced square again with something that continues to be, I think, a subject worthy of consideration. Is the conservative endeavor and are conservatives to adopt and begin an embrace of and a promotion of their version of how a welfare state ought to run?

What Did The Founders Think Of Big Government? Let’s Ask John Taylor Of Caroline

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The last caller to the program asked me what I thought the founders, why they opposed or why they afraid of big government. I said to him that to answer that question, you’d have to understand or explain exactly what big government would have meant to them. It did not mean to them what it means to us today, because we see this monstrosity and this excessive abuse of power that unfortunately has become commonplace, it seems, has been accepted by the rank-and-file citizenry out there, and is the great tragedy indeed of the early part of the 21st century, I think.

Conservative, Tea Party, And Republican Are Not Synonyms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

Real Christian Charity Is Needed Today

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, what the original progressive charitable people wanted to do was eliminate all the slobs out there, eliminate all the people that weren’t them. In other words, let’s build a master race right here in the United States. We won’t have any poor people and we won’t have to have any philanthropy or charity. The problem with charity is it creates more poor people, in other words, and more people in need. Screw the least of these, which explains the attitude, the death culture behind abortion.

The Great Louisiana EBT Heist

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What happened in that Wal-Mart in Louisiana on Saturday? This is being dubbed now as the “Louisiana heist” in the towns of Mansfield and Springhill. I don’t live near either one of the two. What happened? The EBT card system apparently, run by the Xerox Corporation, went caput for a little while while the servers were being updated or whatever it was that Xerox was doing on Saturday. Many people were being denied or their cards were not being honored because the system couldn’t be accessed. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Obama Has Forgotten Gingrich And The Last Government Shutdown

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There’s President Obama out there saying [mocking] “Never before in history has anyone ever used leverage to try not to raise the debt ceiling.” Gingrich is out there I guess listening to this, raising his hand and saying: Um, excuse me, we did. In 1995 and 1996, we did. I have the email blast from former Speaker Gingrich. It was an interesting read. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

David Stockman’s “Sundown In America”

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Back to David Stockman, there are a couple more stats from the “Sundown in America” essay that he wrote. You can find it in today’s Pile of Prep. If you’re not already convinced, after I read you the rollover of the debt from the first hour, Stockman isn’t finished with his rundown. I’m skipping here. This thing is 18 pages long if printed. I’m only going to get to about a page and a half during the entire three hours. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Middle East Rebel Weapon Welfare

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Theft of US weapons in Libya involve hundreds of guns, sources say,” a story on Fox News by Adam Housley. Bret Baier actually did the video portion of this. The vehicles that were hijacked and stolen by our new Al-Qaeda in Libya buddies, our rebel buddies that we helped kill Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, this is what they’ve done.

States Need To Give Federal Government All Their Powers Or None At All

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – With the revelation of Franklin Pierce’s veto of the indigent insane bill, my perspective on fighting the federal leviathan has taken on an entirely new tint now. I always knew there was no general welfare power granted to the Congress. I wasn’t aware that a first generation descendent of the founder had actually had to deal with it and so forcefully and so mightily and so irrevocably demolished that idea that it wouldn’t gain a majority in the Congress for another 80 years. That’s how powerful Pierce’s smackdown of Congress was. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

President Obama Fails To Address The Cause Of Inner City Violence And Poverty

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Is it then possible that poverty is not an economic condition in life, that one of the symptoms of it may be lack of financial mobility or success? But don’t we have enough evidence around us to show it is far more likely that poverty is a moral and existential condition, that it is brought about by a lack of values and a lack of a life ordered in a certain way?

Americans Are Too Good To Pick Their Own Food

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is a very intriguing story that you just sent me, Mr. Gruss. Strawberry farmers can’t find people in California to pick the strawberries. Congratulations, you grandparents out there. We’ve raised an entire generation of people and of youths, Americans, that will not do the jobs that their American forefathers did.

The Illegal Immigration Problem Isn’t Mexicans, It’s Jobs And Welfare

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If there aren’t people that are willing to pay illegals to do the work that Americans won’t do, then illegals will stop coming here. If the purpose is economic, then if you shut off the economic spigot, that will stop it, whether you close the border or not. If the purpose is economic inasmuch as they come here and get free things, housing, education, healthcare and what have you, if you shut the spigot off, ditto that.

Boston Bombing Is Being Used As A Push For Immigration Reform And Amnesty

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – So in other words, we need to give these people amnesty and legalize them so if they blow up a bazaar or they blow up a marathon site, we will more easily be able to track them because we naturalized them or made them legal. That’s the justification? Really? Wow! What other excuses can we make up to make illegals legal? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

ExxonMobil Wants Their Government Subsidy

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…

Imagination Is What’s Needed To Unplug From The State

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would suggest to you that there are few people out there who could imagine what life would actually be like if you actually had to take care of ourselves, if we had to actually run and mind our own business and our own community, if we were actually forced, because of the conditions we have foisted on ourselves, to do all these things for let’s say one-third the cost that we’re currently doing them at. That’s an imagination that few people have. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Monopoly Is Not Much Fun When You’re A Property On The Board

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – How does all this play out? Ladies and gentlemen, it plays out horrifically because it cannot continue. The only reason it continues now is because people fear the government. They fear what’s going to happen to them if they don’t pay their taxes. They fear what’s going to happen to them if they don’t march in lockstep as they’re being told to march in lockstep. They fear what’s going to happen to them.

The Extinction Of The American Male

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We’ve all bemoaned the fact that there seem to be fewer and fewer young gentlemen out there. We’ve all bemoaned the fact that the clowns that are in movies like Hangover are not the exception in our day and age, they’re the rule. There are fewer and fewer young men that you see out there that you want to say: That’s a fine young man. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Welfare Is Fine But Not When It Comes From The State

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The female in the classical, biological sense of the word ultimately is receiving welfare, and she used to receive welfare from the husband, the spouse, the male. Now she receives welfare from the state or, in many instances, some form of employment. Check out today’s audio and transcript for the rest…

National “Security” Is Much Costlier Than Constitutional Common Defense

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I do not like this term “national security.” It is too ubiquitous. The 18th and 19th century version of that would be “common defense.” It would be very specific and it would be a very limited power to be used very cautiously and judiciously. The operative word is defense, not offense, not humanitarian. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The States Need Boatloads Of Federal Money To Keep From Sinking

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The problem today is, and why your plan will not work under current conditions, because your State of Pennsylvania is in on it. Your state, just like my state, cannot exist and cannot continue to pretend that it can afford all the vainglorious government services it provides without the general government borrowing $1 trillion plus every year and then sending it back to the states in the form of block grants.

All Those Drones Aren’t Just For Catching Illegal Immigrants

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The beginnings of Skynet are very real, they’re not fictional, and they’re very terrifying. The fact that you people in Texas are going to have tens of thousands of unmanned aerial vehicles just roaming the countryside in search of an illegal, how do they know it’s an illegal?

Real Christian Charity Means Caring For Your Neighbors When They’re Sick… Not Going to FluCare.gov

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Shouldn’t we have FluCare? We do have FluCare, it just doesn’t come from a governing agency. It comes from Christians who believe it to be their duty to care for their neighbor. No moneys exchange hands here, no writ of power has been granted, just the peace of our Lord and Savior weighing on that individual’s head saying: This is what you were taught to do. This is what Jesus taught you to do. This is what Christianity tells you that you must do. Remember, you care for the sick. You don’t job it out to the Red Cross. You feed the hungry. You don’t job it out to the food bank. You clothe the naked. You don’t job it out to Nike. Check out the rest in today's transcript...
