Here’s What’s Great About the Supreme Court’s Obamacare Decision

In the Ronald Reagan movie Kings Row, Reagan plays Drake McHugh, whose legs are sawn off by a sadistic, class-conscious doctor.

Everyone remembers the line “Where’s the rest of me?” No remembers what happens after that. I’ll fill you in.

McHugh’s best friend, a psychiatrist, decides to tell McHugh (Reagan) the truth: his legs were perfectly healthy, but the doctor cut them off to keep the lower class McHugh from pursuing the doctor’s debutante daughter.

Instead of sinking into self-pity, McHugh laughs and rallies.

The movie made Reagan a star. Kings Row also gives us the perfect narrative for our response to the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision:  laugh and rally.

The conservative grassroots in the USA was already complacent before the decision.  C’mon, admit it.  You expected the Supremes to strike down the individual mandate, at least. Then you expected everyone to pile on Obama for wasting three years.  Then you expected Romney to waltz into the White House.  And we’d all live happily ever after.

But happily ever after is relative. Yes, you can live happily ever after without your legs, but you can’t imagine it until they’re gone.

In this TED talk, Harvard’s Dan Gilbert explains an amazing phenomenon that Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman describes brilliantly:  Nothing is as bad as we think it is while we’re thinking about it.

So what’s so great about the decision?

The Supreme Court just reminded us that our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness depend solely on us.  A republican form of government—a government of democratically elected representatives—requires constant vigilance from its citizens.  On autopilot, the representatives of the people become oligarchs, until one oligarch emerges as the despot.  That’s the natural order of things: domination by the connected through force.

The Supreme Court ruled that Congress can use the tax code to force us to do anything it wishes—buy a car, sell a car, paint our houses purple.  If you don’t like that, then vote for people who don’t want to decide what color your house should be or how often you should go to the doctor.

You want to live free? Vote for people who want you to live free.

And convince 50% + 1 of the people around you to do likewise.

I’ll leave you with JD Wilson’s photos from our post-Obamacare flash rally in Forest Park on Thrusday.

  1. I was classified as a terrorist by the Department of Justice in 2010 because I discovered the Katrina Virus and resulting Federal cover-up. (YouTube: “David Andrew Christenson channel” double click on David Andrew Christenson)

    Email to my cousins: Admiral John Christenson (President of the Naval War College and a source), Doctor Joe Christenson and Mark Christenson (Proctor & Gamble brand manager for Tide.)
    Email to Ambassador Donald Ensenat (A source and President George W. Bush’s roommate at Yale.)
    Email to Jeff (JK) McKay and his wife, Teresa McKay. (Both are sources. Teresa is the Director of Defense Finance and Accounting (DFAS) and JK works in the Pentagon. JK is my classmate from the United States Air Force Academy and roommate at flight school.)

    John, Joe and Mark,
    Donald,
    JK and Teresa,

    What Chief Judge John Roberts did was unprecedented in the history of the Supreme Court. He is an ultra-conservative. Please review the opinion that he wrote. Kennedy voted against the law in its’ entirety. If anyone was going to be the swing vote it was Kennedy. Roberts calling it a tax completely violates the rule of law and goes against Supreme Court protocol. It is called Judicial Legislation. The Supreme Court rulings are to be based on what they think Congress intended the law to be. Obama and Congress intentionally stayed away from calling it a tax. Obama never argued for the law based on the tax issue. You have witnessed something that is incredible and has not happened in the history of the United States. Roberts knows about the Katrina Virus and the fact that one hundred and fifty million people could be infected. He had no choice but to participate in the cover-up. The truth will come out. Our country cannot afford ObamaCare. I believe people deserve health care but how we pay for it is the problem.

    I hope John can make peace with his God over this. Can you?

    An Epic Constitutional Crisis. I am talking about the political destruction of all three branches (Executive, Judicial and Legislative) of our Federal Government. One hundred and fifty five million Americans and Canadians may be infected with The Katrina Virus. Did the United States Supreme Court participate in the criminal cover-up? Misprision is a crime/felony. In simple terms it means that you had knowledge of a crime and did nothing. Did the Supreme Court have knowledge? YES! I gave them the knowledge. The real question is: what did the Supreme Court do with the knowledge of The Katrina Virus and the cover-up?

    There was no simple way to present this story. I fully acknowledge that the material is presented in an incoherent manner. What you are reading is a compilation of my communications with the Supreme Court since my arrest for cyberstalking FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes on March 15th, 2011. It must be emphasized that I was arrested on a Louisiana Warrant (not a Federal Warrant as one would expect.) and I have never been charged with a crime. A Louisiana Search and Seizure Warrant was used by the FBI to steal my evidence, documentation, etc. of what happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. In simplistic terms chemical warfare contaminates were released from DOD and CIA classified facilities. The United States Military conducted operational missions in violation of Federal Law and killed Americans. 1500 Americans are still missing. Were the contaminated bodies recovered, analyzed and burned in Federal Government incinerators? Are some of the bodies being kept alive in vegetative states so that the Federal Government can study the long term effects of the Katrina Virus? (Remember the Syphilis Studies in Alabama and Guatemala.)

    This is a Prelude/Reference Book/Appendix. The end of the story has not been written. Judgment must not be passed upon the Supreme Court at this time. The Supreme Court may have actually protected me. Think about it. Who could the Supreme Court have turned to? Congress and the Executive Branch are responsible for the murder, genocide, treason and crimes against humanity. The only option for the Supreme Court may have been to provide me with the protection needed, to not only uncover the truth about the Katrina Virus, but to bring it to the attention of American and Canadian people.

    A quest for justice. What started as simple fraud perpetrated against Captain David Andrew Christenson turned into a National and Worldwide Criminal Conspiracy. Captain Christenson unintentionally and unwittingly became a crusader for justice. His attempts to uncover the truth and to bring those truths to light got him classified as a terrorist by the Department of Justice. At a minimum the cover-up involves the Federal Government, the President, the Supreme Court, Congress, the Department of Defense, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Catholic Church, the Pope, BP, etc.

    Read the email paper trial. This book contains emails sent by Captain Christenson starting on October 14th, 2010 and ending on March 14th, 2011 when he was arrested. Captain Christenson was arrested on a Louisiana Warrant for Cyber Stalking FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes. It must be noted that Captain Christenson was never charged with a crime. Agent Rayes came to Captain Christenson on October 14th, 2010 the day the emails started.

    There was no easy way to present this story in a coherent manner. I decided to present the emails as is. I hope that you can use them as a point of reference. My next book is titled “The Reluctant Patriot”. The story starts March 15th, 2011 with my arrest. Please consider this book to be a prelude, appendix and or a reference book.

  2. Please don’t mistake quiet determined resolve for complacency. All my rhetoric seems to do nothing to deter a lack of understanding for what is at stake. I will make my voice most heard in the voting booth with millions of my closest friends. No we will not waltz in and I will be active. However, convincing left wing socialist ideallogs is typically a waist of time. We will convince most of the fence sitters I think.
