Monday Morning Open Thread
Passover starts tonight.
Here's a funny thing from a recommended dkos diary:
I just found out that in 1798, the fifth congress passed and President John Adams signed into law "An Act for the Relief of Sick and Disabled Seamen" authorizing the creation of a marine hospital service, and mandating privately employed sailors to purchase healthcare insurance. I guess now President John Adams was a tyrant who took away Americans' freedom [. . .]
(Emphasis supplied.) While the argument (the individual mandate is constitutional) supposedly being supported by this historical artifact is unopposable given current jurisprudence, it just so happens that John Adams signed the Alien and Sedition Acts, which did indeed, take away our freedoms. It was a pretty big deal. Maybe rephrase the "took away our freedoms" line? Just a thought.
Speaking for me only
