Contempt of Court

ObamaCare/RomneyCare is Here to Stay

When the news broke this morning that the Supreme Court had judged that ObamaCare was Constitutional, my first response was anger.  I was mad that they would shove this right back at us by reinterpreting it as a tax instead of an abuse of the commerce clause.

Later I was more disgusted.  I felt personal animosity toward all who were involved in writing, passing and approving this abomination.

Now I am just sad.  I am sad for what our great country is becoming.  I know that we've been slowly circling the drain, but today's ruling seems to jiggle the handle and get us going in a full flush.

To paraphrase the First Lady, today, for the first time in my adult life, I am truly disappointed in my country.

What does all of this have to do with prepping?

I really believe that this is a harbinger of bad times coming, and coming a lot quicker than most of us "reasonable" people have been thinking.  I don't think it is coming in the next few months, but I think a massive economic collapse will be upon us in 3 to 5 years rather than 10-15 or 15-20.

Please, do what you need to do to buckle down and get fiscally and physically healthy and prepared.  Get out of debt, buy what you need to be prepared, and get your body and mind conditioned for hard times.


  1. Amen Brother! Soldier on the decline began today in earnest!

  2. i too am ashamed. ashamed of the stupid sheeple that believe this is okay. ashamed of the young people, too ignorant from a failed school system to understand their future just got crushed. most of all ashamed of myself, a 29 year veteran, for not having the courage to do what needs to be done when my country needs me most. everybody wonders "what can little me do?" well i understand the revolution started with 3 guys bitching at a tavern over beers. that soon turned into 9, the loyal nine. that soon spun off the sons of liberty and then 3% of the population pulled off the greatest upset in history. three guys....."is peace so dear, life so sweet that we purchase it at the cost of our freedom?" a virginian said that.a virginian led us to freedom. a virginian put to words our right to liberty. a virginian turned his back to oppressive federal rule and led thousands of virginians in the fight for states rights. oh where are the virginians now? will not one stand in the face of tyranny? if chinese came here and tried this every man woman and child would be to arms. yet we snivel at the feet of the master. yes i am ashamed. once i led men in battle, fearing not. now i snivel with the peasants. welcome to egypt, slave.

  3. If my son were older id be marching in the street. I think we need a few to take up arms though. I will be there in the lines but i cant be the one crazy to attempt it alone

  4. Wise words, RiverRider - I share your frustration and shame. My great x 7 or 8 grandfather was Carter Braxton. He questioned whether revolution was truly the best route, but when the decision was made, he risked his life and spent his fortune to support the war. Patrick Henry was born in the next county over and my folks used to go to St. John's Church where he gave his famous speech. George married Martha here in my county. Virginia's history is replete with leaders, statesmen and orators. Today we are left with George Allen dropping Macaca bombs and Bob McDonnel chomping at the bit to be picked as Mitt's VP. Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me liberty or give me death!

    Anonymous - whether that time comes or not, I know you will teach your son the truth and what freedom, liberty and responsibility mean.
