By ruling for the government in the case of King v. Burwell, the Supreme Court once again tied itself into rhetorical and logical knots to defend Obamacare.
Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them.
But there is a deeper and more long-lasting impact of these decisions that raise the question whether we are still living in America.
I was having lunch at the Oar House in Portsmouth, NH when I heard the latest news from the Whorehouse in Washington, D.C. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.
Today we're not held to reality. For example, one does not have to accept the limitations of biology. Say that one is born with XX sex chromosomes and is therefore female or that one is born with XY sex chromosomes and is therefore male. One doesn't have to accept nature's determination. An XXer can say that he's a male. Or an XYer can say he's a she. One's sex is seen as optional. Moreover, if a male claims to be a female, others are expected to acknowledge that.
Even the Vatican may be surprised at the massive amount of praise Pope Francis’ latest encyclical is receiving. That’s because of its passionate advocacy of the need to take strong action in the face of global warming — and its equally strong denunciation of capitalism and free markets. No wonder the left loves it!
