Constitutional Deception

Thu, Jun 28, 2012 - 11:50am

Article 1. Section 7. Congress shall make any law it pleases, regardless of whether the citizens were lied to, deceived or otherwise misled into supporting its passage.

George and Obama debate health care taxes

The metals are, of course, up against it this morning. If you haven't yet read this ( or this (, please do so immediately. It is looking increasingly likely that the triple bottom in silver will soon fail. IF stops below 26.25 are tripped (maybe on The Globex this afternoon), silver may rapidly descend toward 25 and then continue, over the next couple of weeks, down toward 22 in a final washout move. Please be prepared for this and do not panic if it happens.

Gold is still in its 1530-1630 range but it is, of course, subject to a breakdown, too. Be vigilant.

Hang in there and don't be surprised by anything.

Speaking on memory here, but I believe that Obamacare was launched in both houses of congress, by Nancy Pelosi in the house, and by Reid in the senate. I do not know all of those details, but SCOTUS upheld the taxing power of the fed govt, so any infirmity was either not present, or deemed immaterial [kind of like "harmless error" in criminal cases].

Bottom line: Justice Roberts acted exactly as a conservative justice WOULD act. He stayed within the confines of the actual constitutional jurisprudence.

That is partly why I am so frustrated about this.

When SCOTUS COULD HAVE issued the death blow to continual fed govt expansion and intrusion, the conservative justice authoring the opinion turned left and stopped short of taking away federal power. DAMN!

The liberals are the ones who push and expand. Think Roe v Wade, and the "right of privacy." While the "right of privacy" is nowhere to be found in the constitution, somehow, the left found one. The conservatives, on the other hand, follow the constitution, and let individuals have freedoms without govt intrusions.

So, the tax bill origination issue, is, basically dead.

Good advice if you're in it to make money.

If, however, you are like me and believe something big and fucking nasty this way comes. Keep stacking. Violence seems to be just over the horizon.

@ HomerJ re: Bury Your Metals

That's a great idea, HomerJ.

I'll cash out of PMs and invest in some pumpkin futures instead.

Maybe I'll cash them in right after Halloween too....there should be big demand for pumpkins right after the US elections.

You don't get it - Obamacare is all about control.

The Canadian health care system is 100% controlled. If "they" decide you do not need treatment then you get NO treatment, period!

If you want to then say, oh um, well I really really need help - maybe I will pay for my own treatment. Ermmm no - not in Canada.

Take Lyme Disease - there is only officially 8 cases per year in BC. There are thousands of BC residents who have to go to the US to pay for their own treatment. Yet the Canada health system still extracts taxes from these people to pay for health care that they are then refused. Many have had to sell their homes etc. Maybe you can opt out - no way - you do not pay your taxes you go to jail - and then die!

At least in the US if one has the money one can pay for treatment. (the problem is with corruption and liable and shit, which puts up prices).

No, I think Obamacare is all about increasing totalitarian control over the people. Everyone gets to pay up front and then they will decide if you get cut off or not. You want to rebel against the system? No health care for you. You want to opt out - you got to jail.

The noose is tightening - the sheeple are bleating for more control to fix "the problem"

Just my take on stuff.

Gold and silver are dead plays. No conspiracy, nothing, just the way it is.

Time for you folks to accept it and move to something else that will make you money.


What? Maybe start a Health Care Company?

Gold as Tier 1 asset

I've just seen this post of the SilverDoctor's website:


'UglyDog May 31, 2012 at 3:55 PM Don't be too quick to label this as bullish for gold. I expect that we're not talking about physical gold in the banks sole possession. We may see banks doubling down on their gold hypothecation strategies, thus keeping a lid on rising gold prices.'

Any thoughts, Turdites?

re Agreed

Canadian health care differs from province to province (note that the health care cards are issued by the province). One cannot simply move from one province to the other and expect the same health care coverage. Travel health insurance can be beneficial if traveling to another province. My bet is that most Canadians are not aware of these aspects of our "universal" health care. Also, if you move to another province you do not immediately qualify for that provinces health care.
