Lightning Round - 111511

You gotta move fast:

  • The Vikings began their rollout of an expensive new ad campaign for a new stadium yesterday. The football team itself didn't exactly support the narrative very much. As much as I enjoyed watching my beloved Packers wipe the Lambeau Field turf with the Vikings, it was almost sad in some ways. The Vikings aren't very convincing on or off the field these days.
  • Life is a lot easier when you don't pay attention to what Herman Cain is saying.
  • It appears that the Supreme Court is going to rule on Obamacare before the election. There's been much speculation about whether or not a ruling will affect the upcoming presidential campaign. I suspect it will, but I don't particularly care whether it does. The more important thing is determining whether or not Obamacare goes forward. If Anthony Kennedy, er, I mean the Court, decides to strike down Obamacare, a lot of things will need to change quickly. If Kennedy decides to uphold Obamacare, we'll continue our headlong slog into Peronism. One way or another, we need to know.
  • I understand that Jerry Sandusky gave an interview yesterday. I have no intention of watching it.

If the Court somehow concludes that Obamacare is Constitutional and the Gummint can order us to do anything it wants, then we will turn out to elect a Senate, House and President that will get rid of the d##n thing in its entirety, as they should, and the Court ruling won't matter. If they turn it down, we will have to give all three branches of government to somebody that can get the gummint out of the way of the economy. I would suspect it's the same either way, IOW.

Color me an optimist, but I'd love to see the beginning of a rollback of government power with the court ruling that the commerce clause does NOT allow the gov't to get its fingers into everything. Certainly getting rid of this terrible law is important, but more important is getting rid of the court supported tendency for gov't overreach.
