Now The Commerce Clause
Covers 'Mental Activity'

by Thomas Lifson - February 23rd, 2011 - The American Thinker

According to federal Judge Gladys Kessler of the DC US District Court, the powers granted to the federal government on the Commerce Clause extend to regulating "mental activity." Ruling on an ObamaCare challenge brought by 2 individuals, the good Judge made the leap from "physical activity" to "mental activity" in extending the reach of the federal government. This is not a joke. Read the 64 page decision here.

Did you just have a thought? Thinking is a "mental activity" subject to government control, according to this judge. Did you not realize thinking made you guilty of committting "Interstate Commmerce?" Interstate Commerce can only be done with permission of the federal government. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. It is quite probable that you needed permission from some federal agency to have the thought, if not a license authorizing you to think, assuming the thought itself was not a violation of some law that justifies a penalty.

So it is simple. Stop thinking until Obama gives you permission or accept the consequences. You have been warned.
