What's on your mind? ObamaCare© will tax it

Here's a little mind-game:

If you think about buying a car, but end up keeping your current ride, is that "economic activity?"

How about if you think about trying out the new Chinese place down the street, but opt to eat in instead?

The answer to both questions, according to Clinton-appointed Federal Judge Gladys Kessler, is a resounding "yes:"

"It is pure semantics to argue that an individual who makes a choice to forgo health insurance is not “acting,” especially given the serious economic and health-related consequences to every individual of that choice. Making a choice is an affirmative action, whether one decides to do something or not do something."

This would also seem to reinforce Mike's contention that we (formerly free) citizens will be required to consumer health care:

"Making health care compulsory would address actual need. Public funds would not be wasted on “insurance” but would be spent directly for health care. Everyone would then be healthy, happy, and handsome, and all our children would be smarter than average. Overnight, our life expectancy would be the highest in the world and infant mortality would drop to zero."

Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational Commerce Clause.
