How We Are Ruled

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less." 

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things." 

"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - - that's all." 

In his determination to uphold Obamacare at all costs -- even if it meant abandoning the rule of law -- the chief shyster of the United States resorted to imitating Humpty Dumpty's role in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass for the above-quoted 'legal precedent.'

In another incongruity, the trickster who wrote the fanciful Obamacare decision  subsequently had the gall to accuse some of his colleagues of resorting to a "magic trick" in reaching a decision with which he disagreed.

What we have is a cynical decision that establishes rule by raw political power.  The decision is neither lawful nor logical. It is based on a plain and simple lie -- that the word State in "established by the State" is ambiguous and requires interpretation.  The irrational and arbitrary machinations are those of shysters who have forfeited all claims to legitimacy, respect, and obedience.

The creepy thing about this is that the clowns running the show expect the American public that used to consist of steadfast and bold individuals to quietly accept such antics . . . and the fact that their assumption appears to be correct is even creepier.
