Another take on the Reid Putsch.

Quick Call Poison Control: Liberals Messing with Constitution
Obama and his cohorts-- like you-- really do think that governments grant rights to citizens, when in fact, governments grant nothing. Governments only derive their powers from the consent of the governed to secure rights.
But in Obama’s view-- and yours-- not only do governments grant rights to citizens, he thinks that governments also have the ability to make up new rights for certain sections of the population.
And here’s why he does: Obama believes that there is no such thing as natural law.
And he believes this because to believe the the contrary would have to admit of some higher law or being, like God.
And he must not admit of that or his scheme of government won’t work. Natural law, you see, admits of limitations to government.

The truth is that the Republican Senate leadership has been Reid’s silent partner in the destruction of the filibuster. On hundreds of occasions more than any other leader, Reid has conflated the Senate’s two-step voting process to diminish the filibuster with unforced concurrence of the Senate Minority Leader Mitchell McConnell Jr.

You're right. This is the final shovel of dirt on the Republic. Thanks, Whorehouse Harry! We are now a full fledged Democracy. With all the pitfalls and pratfalls that comes with it. We are now in a World WROL (the Constitution).
Just wait until the "worm turns", and the Republitards come into the majority. I wonder how long it will take before the DemonRats start screaming about their "rights" being violated, by the very laws and rules they themselves pushed through and down our throats.
As the late, great Frank Zappa once said, "Do you like it, do you hate it, here it is, the way you made it."

They count the VOTES it is OVER.

They take away your Medical Plan,
They take away your Doctor.
They take your Money and then the come for your Life.
They count them. and Mike will keep telling you wait.

A. J. Ayers, Charles Stephenson. They argued that when we say "X is moral/immoral", we're actually saying "I like/dislike X, and you should too." And since "rights" are a moral construct, I have a "right" to anything I please.

Too bad that many of us believe that there is something beyond us, and that we have been endowed natural rights by something more than politicians. Many of us still believe in natural rights, debated and enumerated hundreds of years ago. We need not bow to the power brokers for their "boons". We can stand as free men and women and exercise our rights, or kneel to those deserving of nothing but contempt. I know which side I am on. I know which side our moderator is on. When the time comes, we will know it; we will not need to be told by anyone. Currently, "compliance" and intimidation are being tested. I expect that will fail. As more and more people are harassed, and word gets out, as it does here, the Tweedle-Dees and Tweedle-Dumbers will become less relevant. The groundswell of support will begin locally somewhere. It cannot be stopped. The majority of American military are still honorable people, and care for their families' future. We will never threaten them. We do not threaten non-combatants. The political parties are becoming increasingly irrelevant. two sides of the same bent coin. It is support for the Constitution that will decide our future. It is nearing time to decide which side you are on, and what you can do to help.

My guess is that if the by chance the GOP wins a senate majority next November, they'll reinstate the filibuster law as it was before they disband and the new Congress takes over. They'll want to make certain that sauce for the goose is _not_ sauce for the gander...

"Governments only derive their powers from the consent of the governed to secure rights."

What a load of collectivist baloney. I never consented to anything; did you? Sounds like another believer in the government religion. Governments are about plundering and regimenting the peons, and that is all they were ever about.

"And here’s why he does: Obama believes that there is no such thing as natural law."

There IS no natural law, that tyrants are bound to obey. There is only will and power. Time to wake up and smell the coffee folks. Arm yourselves for what is coming. Ain't no piece of parchment gonna save you. No ruler gives a rat's ass about "rights".
