Democrat congresswoman says that if you robbed a liquor store last year and the year before, it’s ok to rob it again this year

by editor on October 15, 2010

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) has an interesting take on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Her basic argument is, well, we did unconstitutional things in the past, so that makes ObamaCare legal, too.

Then, when she realizes it’s a losing argument, she just gives up and walks away.

She has a point… many Presidents and members of congress and the senate, Republicans and Democrats alike, have gone above and beyond the mandate of the Constitution and in many times completely broke the boundaries set by it HOWEVER, IT WAS WRONG then too. This thinking that it was okay to do it then, you can do it now mentality IS EXACTLY the problem and it is the reason people like this needs to go. Once entitlements programs (social security, medicare, food stamps, etc) are implemented and no one challenges them they become commonplace and woe is the person that tries to get them away… that is why is extremely important to repeal this health scare now.

Exactly Kimmy. It has to be nipped in the bud… along with all the other destructive BS money-hole programs the dumbocrats have pushed. Then we need to start weening the entitlement programs down to the bare subsistence… only then will finding a job become more attractive than laying on your @ss and collecting a check.

Even if it means going through a Greece type strategy (hopefully not) the sooner we get all these entitlements programs either off or to the bare minimum the better it will be. I understand that there are lot of older people going towards retirement but instead of retiring they can start businesses or something with those years of experience they can hire young people and the cycle of goodness goes from there. People need to start thinking more about just themselves.

“I understand that there are lot of older people going towards retirement but instead of retiring they can start businesses or something with those years of experience they can hire young people and the cycle of goodness goes from there.”

That would be a wonderful thing… the only problem is that the majority of ‘young people’ think they know everything and pay no heed to experience. In fact, the entitlement brainwashing these ‘young people’ have received over the past couple of generations has created an attitude of disdain amongst them for anyone older and wiser… They don’t want to be told what to do or how to do it because they have been hood winked into believing the proven capitalist lessons of the past are evil and destructive. It’s like this Mike Rowe ad they run on my local cable channel says, “We’ve been told the only path to success is an expensive education that leads to a job in a high rise corner office… but who’s going to build the office?”

That’s a good question Mike… The majority of today’s ‘young people’ think they’re too cute to actually work or spend the time to become master’s of a trade… Every time I get a new 18-30 year old kid in my crew I cringe… because they’re all the same… they think they know it all, they think they shouldn’t have to bust they’re hump, and they can’t handle correction when they screw something up or have to work under direct supervision. The worst part is, in my line of work, when people screw the pooch, other people get hurt or killed.

The thing about that is that we are either talking of inexperience people who havent experienced the world yet or children. I am speaking of young people who are out in the world and have to pay bills. Once life and all its issues starts to bombard the idealism out of, I would like to say most young people, they will appreciate a business person with experience that gives them a job. I am myself a young person and I dont fall into that that you say, and I believe that there are lot of young people out there that like me left the idealism aside and live in reality.

If older generations take that stand all in all that just makes even more of a gap. I do believe that when the student is ready the teacher appears, but that is if only there are people who are willing to teach around.

I understand your skepticism, but if older americans were willing to stick around for the fight open those businesses and be willing to teach, a lot of good things can come out of that. Let life and circumstances and hardships knock the stupid out of the stupid bunch and those that it doesn’t happen to then fall on the wayside and why worry about them?

“I am myself a young person and I don’t fall into that that you say…

“Three reasons I would never lump you in with the lot I’m referring to Kimmy:

1. You are not the product of the typical American cradle to ‘adulthood’ entitlement experience. Your expectations don’t revolve around receiving instant gratification for the minimum amount of effort like the kids I’m talking about.

2. You are the living embodiment of “the American Dream”- to wit- you had to work for it, unlike the kids I’m talking about who not only do not appreciate it, but take it for granted that it should be served up to them on a silver platter.

3. And most importantly Kimmy, you have been given the most precious gift of insight and the drive to achieve and accomplish success regardless of the obstacles, unlike the kids I’m talking about who have never been given the opportunity to fail because of American society’s safety net.

You Kimmy, know what it’s like to live without that net… and to quote Tom Petty: “Honey, ain’t it funny how a crowd always gathers around some one living life without a net?”

Thank you I really appreciate that very much. I am sick of government and the less of it the better. I didn’t come to this country to have the government be my provider. I came to have the OPPORTUNITY to find the best life for myself at the same time caring for the needs of others without the government telling me how to live my life. I must say that all in all, all insight and knowledge came from a MUCH higher sphere than any government, namely of course G-D who is all knowing and all seeing and all powerful. If it wasn’t for Him, I would be nothing and have no desire to do for myself and help others like the children (and indeed children they are) that you describe. Life is hard, all that we have to do is deal with it. I live on promises made to me before I was born by my Creator, and I don’t care if anyone believes they are fantasies, those promises propel me to work hard and to do my best and to focus on the real things in life. Government has done nothing for me and it never will. Yes the roads are awesome and I am glad we have a military (G-d bless them) and so on, but the government can never take the place of a true provider and I really am sad for those who look to the government for all their needs ESPECIALLY when they are disabled, because once the governments of the world become all powerful (as we seen again and again) it is the weak, the disabled, those who are dependent on it and the untouchables who always get the death sentence first (or the slavery treatment) and yet people don’t seem to learn from the past.

Notice her final words in the clip. “I’m outta here.” We can only hope. Not just her, but the rest of Congress that thinks the way she does. I can’t wait for November.

Where is the U.S. military? I thought they were sworn to protect the constitution from domestic enemies like her.

I don’t know why you still live in IL, you tell us. As for her handler, someone has to make sure she does’nt get into trouble by speaking into a microphone. EVERY time I have heard her speak, she is basically talking up marxism when you break it down. I have never heard her say anything intelligent, & I like the fact she has no filters. Say what you mean & mean what you say. She does that, & that’s how I judge her.

I wish the interviewer would have said: “and I would maintain that Medicare and Medicaid are also unconstitutional, or “so two wrongs make a right?”

And she would have said, “Yes, it does, unless of course it doesn’t”

I can honestly say that if I were that guy and she put her fingers in my face, I would have broken them off and stuck them down her throat. She is a disgusting and vile woman with nary an honest bone in her body.

Its Illinois, for goodness sake! Its RUN by mobsters. So is it any real surprise to those of us from Illinois that politicians from Illinois think its ok to disregard the law?

The real tip-off in IL is that the Mayor of Chicago is way more powerful then the Governor. Now consider that “Deadfish” is probably going to be the next Mayor, there is some good news.

its absolutely appalling that this type of creature will benefit from a lifelong full pay retirement for being a corrupt, manipulating, power broker that has no clue about the constitution (that she swore to defend and choose not to) She is a perfect example of all the reason why career politicians are bad for America and what it stands for. Term Limits and No retirement! remember its public service!

Maybe all of them should have to pass a test on the Constitution to even run for office. Passing score is 100%. This test would be administered every year to every sitting member. Passing score is 100% or you are out of office. Kind of like “No Child Left Behind” .

She knows the constitution just fine. The document’s not hard to understand. She just doesn’t like it, and chooses to ignore whichever parts are inconvenient to her larger goal.
