Love or hate Barack Obama a lawsuit against him, or any entity associated with him, is crazy when your premise is the Affordable Health Care act, because love or hate that act, it was put into law by a vote involving more entities than just the office of the president. In fact, the current law is a poor example of what Barack Obama himself hoped to achieve in health care reform before he was elected to his first term. So, no matter how you feel about it, it took the involvement of many thousands of people for the act to end up becoming a law and even if you want to hold the people at the highest levels responsible you have to hold the House and the Senate responsible before the President himself. Also, we have a process for that. You can bring a new bill before Congress that gets rid of or alters the old bill. It’s called removal of the old bill or an amendment of the old bill. We have this legal framework in place to make sure that the majority of Americans are represented most of the time. I know it’s kind of a joke with special interest lobbying going on but bear with me. It tries to make sure that laws are not just removed when they inconvenience the very wealthy, a special interest group, or any other group that may abuse their authority (aka the very wealthy Republicans that don’t want to raise your minimum wage and give you the dignity of health care even though inflation has taken place, the cost of energy has sky rocketed, and you work 30 hours a week or more, something most of them are not familiar with.) Still, this is what they do lately when they’re told no, make up reasons to sue the President. Remember the last time they tried something like this, during the Clinton administration? Something about shutting the whole country down because the President might be getting his dick wet with an intern. Something about trying to impeach him over that even though there were more important things going on. Something about distracting the Commander in Chief of the most powerful military in the world for a few months for blowing the occasional load in places he maybe shouldn’t have. Anyway, has anyone else realized that the Republican party is already dead, and is just being animated by the money that is associated with it? It’s kind of like a zombie party hyped up on H that just won’t go gracefully into the night but instead tries to eat the brains of all of the politically minded people around it. Anyway, John Boehner, your lawsuit is bullshit, we have more important problems, please stop ruining our country with your selfish, special interest driven, temper tantrums. Wait I’ll put it in terms Zombie Republicans can understand, Wahhhhh, brains, Wahhh, Cocaine, wahhhhhh, exploit workers makes more money, no health care for non-believers. To hell with Constitution, me want exploit more workers, wahhhhh!!!
Since high ranking Republicans are so wealthy in general that they don’t have anything better, or useful to do I have come up with a list of suggested hobbies they might consider so that they might become more productive members of our society. I’ve narrowed it down to 10.
10. Walking through a plate glass window.
9. Walking themselves and their associates off of a tall building and allowing their remains to fill a giant cross on the ground directly below. It’s about as actually Christian as anything else they do anyway.
8. Being eaten by polar bears. Sorry bears, I know it’ll be gross, but sometimes you have to take one for the team. Besides, they owe you one with all of the environmental damage they are totally for all of the time. Republicans are like, “fuck you polar bears” so I think it’s time that the bears are like “fuck you Republicans.” The bears should feel free to have hate sex with the Republicans before eating them, if they so choose.
7. Standing on an active train track until a train hits you.
6. Seppuku, never mind this is for honorable people. Let’s just say that the less honorable equivalent would be acceptable.
5. Using their money to build a rocket that will shoot them, and the CEOs of investment (and most other banks) into the sun. It should be equipped with a heat shielded communications array so we can hear their screams and laugh up until the last second over drinks.
4. Starvation through malnutrition.
3. Hurricane Katrina reenactment. Basically, we recreate the conditions present during and in the first days and weeks after Hurricane Katrina, and give them proportionately the same level of governmental support that the residents of New Orleans enjoyed.
2. Hunting with Dick Cheney. Need I say more?
1. Crocheting, which makes most that participate insane and suicidal in general.
