Don't Let Me Stop You

What the heck, you'll do what you want anyway.

Demon Pass

Posted by Dan Draney on March 17, 2010

That’s what I hear when they talk about the Pelosi/Slaughter plan to “deem and pass” the takeover of 1/6th of the economy without actually voting on a bill. Instead they will vote on a “self-executing rule” to deem the bill passed with a bunch of amendments sneaked in at the last minute without debate or even reading. Anyone have a problem with that? You must be a racist homophobe hypocrite, according to the anointed ones. Not to worry, though, because, as Pres. Obama tells us, “Well, a lot of those folks, your employer it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent [sic], which means they could give you a raise.”

We are heading into a Demon Pass of sorts, as the “progressives” try to outdo themselves on who can show the greatest disregard for the rule of law and the Constitution. Just a few other straws in the wind from today alone:

Reason Magazine: Oregon police SWAT teams surround a law-abiding citizen’s house, arrest him, confiscate his guns. All without a crime, a threat, a warrant or even probable cause.

The House Judiciary Committee thinks you must be a racist if you point out that the feds can’t legally force the states to let felons vote. The members think they’ll just have to find some way to get around those pesky, explicit Constitutional provisions that reserve that decision to the states.

Eric Holder “explains” how we have to give terrorists civilian trials by jury and the best legal team leftist money can buy, because Osama bin Laden is really just like Charles Manson. But don’t worry, we’ll never Mirandize bin Laden, because we’ll just kill him.

For the first time in recorded history, Dennis Kucinich spoke and a few people were actually interested in what he had to say, which amounts to, “I’m a much cheaper date than Landrieu or Nelson,” and “I’ll vote for this bill no matter how bad it is, and believe me, it reeks.”

Demon Pass dead ahead.

    Sad thing is, Dan … win or lose this whole health care dreck is an albatross around our necks for at least the next several years.

    If it passes, the entire country will be convulsed through the next couple of election cycles trying to get it repealed, amended, “fixed”, stomped to death, yadda-yadda, and absolutely nothing of any value to America will happen. If it doesn’t pass, the Dems (including, and especially, Obama and the leadership) will have zero street creds – they will be essentially emasculated, unable to accomplish even the most mundane programs – and the crowd of biz-as-usual Republicans don’t have much to offer in the the way of effective solutions for the high cost of healthcare, the job mess, energy, etc., etc.

    How did we let it come to this? Because it really is our fault … we the folks have paid too little attention to our staggering bleeding nation for too long – I’m not at all sure it can be stood up again. It breaks my heart.
