If SCOTUS had scuttled the ACA, Romney's new slogan would have been something like;

"I succeeded where Obama failed".

Now that SCOTUS upheld the ACA, Romney can say "I did it first".

Are these statements true?  Or are they lies twisted to sound like the truth?

Both CNN and FOX news trumpeted false news to the world.  I've seen the clips, they were completely confident that their news was correct.  They weren't correct.  They could have been, like so many others were, but they were so inpatient and sure of their own infallibility that they lied to the American people.

How many laws have SCOTUS struck down recently that protected the government from corruption or the appearance of corruption?

SCOTUS is going out of its way to assure the American people that corruption doesn't exist in America.  They are judges for goodness sake.  Are they going to say that they've never seen a corrupt corporation before in all of their years in the justice system.  A decade after the biggest financial meltdown in almost a century, a financial crisis known to have been created at least partly from corrupt banks, financial corporations and Mortgage companies, SCOTUS has the audacity to tell Americans that Corporate campaign contributions (money) isn't proven to have a corruptive influence?

The absolute silence from any media outlet on the connection between the recent SCOTUS rulings that deny the corrupted influence of money in campaigns and the near catastrophic collapse of the US financial system due in part to corporate lobbyists achieving the dismantling of Glass-Steagall act and the reckless government spending by the Republican controlled government under George W. Bush is unbelievable.  

Will there come a time when people will stop believing the unbelievable?

Transferring jobs overseas doesn't cost Americans jobs.  A lie

Banks and financial corporations didn't cause the financial crisis. Another lie.

Social Security is near bankruptcy. A total lie.

Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.  A manufactured lie.

The United States Post Office is a drain on the American tax payer.  A politically orchestrated lie.

Teachers and unions are lazy, incompetent, parasites living off the public dime.  A malicious and vile lie.

Health Care isn't a constitutional right like a gun is, it's more like...umh...broccoli.  Now that's a Whopper!

FOX news is fair and balanced and would never jump to conclusions before knowing the facts.  Like ACORN, James O'Keefe, NPR, Planned Parenthood or any other news story.  Especially not something as important as a SCOTUS decision on health care which could affect millions and millions of Americans.

If this doesn't prove to Americans that they are being lied to all the time, what will.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  raw broccoli fresh from the garden flowers and all (0+ / 0-)

    from the plant to your mouth in five seconds

  •  Healthcare for all (not "insurance" but "care") is (0+ / 0-)

    like spinach.

    Everybody knows that it's good for us all and probably what we need in the end, but it's hard to make people take it willingly- kinda like Kucinich.

  •  Letter to Mitt because I'm worried about him (0+ / 0-)

    Dear Mitt

    I've heard you say a lot of the stuff I recently read in a diary posted on the DailyKos. As correctly pointed out by the author of the diary - these ideas are untrue, and in many cases, pure lies.  Mitt - It got me a little worried about you.

    I heard from a good source things you really believe are heavy and hold your feet on the ground but things you believe because it makes you popular - are really light - like feathers.

    It turns out there was a man that just didn't believe anything he said and he couldn't keep his feet on the ground. The story tellers call him Featherman.   Apparently, all of the people he was trying to please were pretty light as well but had bricks of gold in their pockets. So for many months they all walked with their arms tightly linked so Featherman stayed on the ground.

    Then one day they came to a doorway and only one at a time could get through. They told Featherman they would have to let go... but only for a second.  They told him to run in and another man loaded with gold bricks would be right behind and grab him before anything bad could happened.

    But it didn't work: Featherman just wasn't stuffed with anything of substance.  He flew up and hit the ceiling fan and feathers were everywhere.  At the very end he peed a little bit and yelled "Oh Shit!"...and that surprised everyone because he seldom cursed.

    Best wishes & super respectfully
