From Chief Justice Roberts opinion, indicating that the tax for not participating cannot be raised to the point where it becomes punitive:

"Second, Congress's ability to use its taxing power to influence conduct is not without limits. A few of our cases policed these limits aggressively, invalidating punitive exactions obviously designed to regulate behavior other-wise regarded at the time as beyond federal authority.

See,e.g., United States v.Butler, 297 U. S. 1 (1936);DrexelFurniture, 259 U. S. 20. More often and more recently we have declined to closely examine the regulatory motive or effect of revenue-raising measures. See Kahriger, 345U. S., at 27:31 (collecting cases). We have nonetheless maintained that there comes a time in the extension of the penalizing features of the so-called tax when it loses its character as such and becomes a mere penalty with the characteristics of regulation and punishment.

We have already explained that the shared responsibility payment's practical characteristics pass muster as a tax under our narrowest interpretations of the taxing power. Because the tax at hand is within even those strict limits, we need not here decide the precise point at which an exaction becomes so punitive that the taxing power does not authorize it. It remains true, however, that the power to tax is not the power to destroy while this Court sits.

So you also believe Cindy Sheehan when she said this: " I was told my son was killed in the war on terror. He was killed by George Bush's war of terror on the world."

Both grieving mothers so certainly you believe both, right?

Visit Manzanar, as Galt has, and see for yourself instead of reading propaganda.
A death rate of 4 people per 1000 per year is probably less than the normal death rate anywhere. Certainly less than the death rate for Chicago gangstas.
The internment was wrong, but the treatment was humane.
Humane? Fred Galt, you're just as incapable of understanding as you are of reading the book from which you took this particular troll name. The fact that the Japanese were not systematically gassed in their concentration camps didn't make their treatment humane...you still hawking those FEMA camps? lol, you're hopeless and my patience is not infinite...

I know you can't comprehend what you read so have someone else explain it to you.
Here was your earlier one:

So you did leave out a part. You just said you didn't.

Watching it on and off myself. The biggest moment was when Cruz said both parties have to stop thinking about what they want and start thinking about what the people want.

Democrats think they know what's best though. Reid said so.

It looks as though the, cough, Kenyan military has taken many of the, so called Somali terrorists alive so perhaps we'll learn how the tragedy played itself out.

It wouldn't pizz me off if a couple of those fks were connected to the Somali's who besieged Minneapolis beginning during the Reagan-Bush I years.

That fkn herd needs to be thinned.

Dramatically.

Quickly too!

But...but I thought you wanted to reach out to the mentally ill to "help" them. Why the quick reversal, fkwit? Is your dumb, unfocused rage getting the best of you again. "Red flagged," huh -- if it were "up to you." The trouble is, dopey, NOTHING is up to you except what you flog down your gullet next, and I think that might be beginning to sink in judging by your steady stream of paranoid, laughably ignorant of pure diabetic haggish bullsh!t.
And yes, a chainsaw would be perfectly fine on somebody like you. The "hubster" (oh jesus, there can't really BE one) would just need to hire a forensic cleaning service to clean up the gooey mess of blood, fat and feces...
Well, see, the idea is you get red flagged so you can get the kind of treatment you need within a safe and controlled environment.

Sounds very humane to me. Sometimes electric shock is part of the treatment though. Just bite down hard on the rubber hose and think happy thoughts. And know my thoughts are with you.

This is a stupid argument and most of your assertions are total b.s. but I'll play.

Ted Bundy volunteered at the Seattle office of Nelson Rockefeller's 1968 presidential campaign and in August, attended the 1968 Republican National Convention in Miami as a Rockefeller delegate.

Dennis Rader, Wichita's BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) Killer was elected dog catcher on the Republican ticket and was active in the party.

Kevin Coe, Spokane's South Hill rapist was the son of a conservative newspaper publisher. He and his parents were active Republicans

We have not yet paid our debt to the victims of 9/11/12 by punishing the criminals in our government who abandoned these men to die.
