Licking the hand of the King

Law professor and Minnesota Senate Candidate Richard Painter Tweeted this:

I  have only one reply to him.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams

  1. Single payer, where a bureaucrat can forbid you from taking your son out of the hospital to seek treatment elsewhere?
    Where the Liverpool Care Pathway is considered a valid form of treatment?
    Where NICE became the name of the game?
    No thanks. Not interested.

    As to the “university education” at a fraction of the cost? That is easy to provide when you make university acceptance extremely difficult to get. The amount of kids that are placed on a non-college education path at a young age would scare the life out of Mr. Painter. I do not know about anyone else, but when I was 14 years old, I had ZERO idea of what I wanted to study in college, and if I did pursue my interests at that point, I would probably be extremely unhappy with my life now.

    Here’s a pro tip, Mr. Painter. Stop focusing on the propaganda. Actually learn something about what you are praising. Generally, once you scratch the surface, you discover it is actually quite ugly under there.

  2. …but…but… What can this beacon of propriety be talking about? The opportunity has passed for justice to be served…Barack Obama is no longer President

  3. I’m pretty sure this is his actual beef with the American Republic:

    What’s the point of the Revolution if deserving law professors can’t be granted patents of nobility?

  4. That self-proclaimed “law professor” certainly doesn’t seem to have any clue about the law. More precisely, the supreme law of the land. He says “guilty” without bothering with a trial, and “treason” without paying any attention to how the Constitution defines treason.

  5. The point of the revolution Sir was so that a$$holes like YOU have the FREEDOM to spew your opinion and clouded judgement on every one else and not get a fist in your face
