Just Send Them to Slaughter

Talk about beating a dead horse, or shall I say donkey, when referring to the left's antics. It seems that the House Rules Chairman Louise Slaughter apparently thinks she can just pencil in her own rules as if they were rules of debate. Ah, those statists on the left seem to forget there is this pesky Constitution that keeps getting in their way.

Article 1, Section 7 of the constitution states:

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

In a nutshell, the Constitution, the TRUE rule of law, states that both houses must pass the SAME bill for it to be sent to the executive branch for signature and become law. I would think that the founding fathers specifically wrote this clause to prevent a tyrannical power grab such as Slaughter has tried to pull.

It is beyond belief. First both houses pass bills that are unconstitutional which no one wants. Then there is the threat of reconciliation. Now, we have alleged constitutional scholars, who think they can just go and make up their own rules whenever it suits them, in order to get their own way. They cannot just dodge the rule of law and think it will go unnoticed.

Then there is the consent of the governed. But no matter how much they lie, cheat, and bribe, they can't gain support for this one. So they decided to try just making up rules as they go along, as if they were children in a playground making up a new game. Can you just smell their desperation? Or perhaps, that is really just that the herd of donkeys are starting to smell like one.

The people know that rationed healthcare will deprive them of care and their right to life, thus shortening their life spans. So I guess that if left unchallenged, the Slaughter House Rules will indirectly just send the American people to slaughter. I say that come election time, we send the herd of donkeys there instead.
