the law will be called the Freedom of Health Care Protection Act.

Stupid name. Obviously it should be called the Freedom from Health Care Protection Act, or, in short, Just Drop Dead, Already.

Andrew Jackson on nullification:

“incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which It was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed.”

This was said in 1832, BTW.

The old saying is wrong. SC is not too big for it’s own insane asylum.


But hey, it’s not like SC needs improvements in health care SC is the 46th healthiest state out of 50 in the health ranking of the states. That’s not so bad is it?

Do we have to wait for the South to secede again? Can’t we just throw them out?

Looks like some of those so called southern Patriots really don’t give a fuck about the “United States” as much as they say they do.

Doctors who like to be paid for their work will likely be leaving the state now.

re: #5 Skip Intro

No you can’t. Liberals live down here too and the conservatives here have already been taught to hate us all and see us as the enemy. I’d kinda not like to hear that from people who don’t live here. Are the only ones of us worth saving the ones in the blue states? That sort of stuff is why Democrats won’t invest in change down here, they’ve written the whole region off entirely. We’re the UNITED States, even if conservatives don’t seem to get what that actually means. (sorry, this is a pet peeve of mine, I will shush now)

32% of the Alabama vote went to Obama.

Sorry, but the people “you” vote into office don’t seem to think so, and as far as I can tell it’s just getting worse, not better. This talk about nullification of laws the South doesn’t like has already happened once; I take it very seriously.

“Supporters of the bill say that the U.S. Supreme Court erred in upholding a key provision of the health care law that imposes penalties on eligible citizens who choose not to purchase health insurance.”

I would so love to see this bill go before the Supreme Court…

27% of Alabama is non-white. So of the 73% that’s white… Obama pulled almost one out of ten…

Nope. Non-whites, esp in AL, vote far less proportionally than Whites. Fixing that is one of my goals.
