Endowed By Our Waiver

Hundreds of companies are getting waivers from Obamacare requirements, as reported by Michelle Malkin and others.

The issue, Dear Friends, is not the waivers.  Or Obamacare itself.

The issue, Dear Friends, is that Dear Leader decides who gets a waiver.

Your rights no longer are endowed by your Creator. 

Make everything illegal (okay, bit of an overstatement, but you get the point) and then require people to ask for permission.  It's about control, and from where power emanates.

Maybe TOTUS knew what it was doing when it scrolled the Declaration of Independence.

  1. The waiver is also the route to making Obamacare worthless without repealing it. All Congress has to do is add a provision directing the Secy of HHS that they must issue a waiver to all and sundry that ask for one.

    When the GOP gets a super majority in both houses they can then repeal at leisure, 2012.

  2. Good point, Professor.

    But you need to 'guitar it up a bit' over there on video of the day. :)
    How about some metal? Your readers will love it!

  3. I don't understand this, I've never heard of any 'waivers' being granted that allows the breaking of any other law. Are they just making this stuff up as they go along?

  4. quiznilo: In short, basically yes. No wonder that companies are holding back on capital investment, eh?

  5. What other federal laws can obama wave a wand and grant me a 'waiver' for? Can he grant me waivers for state laws too?

  6. Pop quiz for the professor and his audience: name the source. This strategy was exposed for the world to see almost 60 years ago.

    Did you really think we want those laws observed? said Dr. Ferris. We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted ? and you create a nation of law-breakers ? and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.

  7. Nobody special....that's Atlas Shrugged. In my copy it is highlighted.

  8. The "Do the Right Thing" Bill
    Future news:

    Do The Right Thing" will give us open, consistent, dynamic government. It grants President Michele Obama (now in her 3rd term in office) all principles and powers to consider all matters and then "Do the right thing". The Congress retains the important function of advising on the President's actions should she desire this.

    The Congress is now free to do what it does best, arrange for hospital admissions, allocate liquor licenses, and grant carbohydrate waivers to restaurants.

  9. @Nobody-


    The entire point is to make it illegal for Americans to take care of ourselves: to eat, dress, work, and look out for each other sensibly and effectively.
