Your Daily Assignment

Which is to make any sort of coherent, logical sense of the diarrhea that Tommy the Commie Friedman has splattered all over the New York Slime’s opinion page.

Even for somebody of such limited intellect and inability to form a coherent sentence that makes any sort of sense without first ingesting half a metric ton of magic mushrooms, this load of incontinent verbal flatulence is quite impressive in its boundless idiocy.

Hence your assignment. We don’t as much ask you as dare you to make sense of it, because we can’t.

So far, what we get is this:

1) The Baby Boomer generation was a bunch of spoiled brats who took over a great legacy of hard work, determination and sacrifice and turned it into a profligate spending spree that would shame a drunken sailor with a platinum AmEx. So far he’s making sense, but then the wheels come off the wagon. Tommy the Commie’s conclusion is that what their children and grandchildren who are now stuck with the bill needs is “justice” which, to Tommy, is even more profligate spending and an even bigger bill passed on to their children and grandchildren.

2) Eric Cantor is a typical greedy, irresponsible Baby Boomer for being one of the very few parasites left in DC who wants to quit spending the wealth of future generations, as opposed to the Baby Boomers that he is, according to Tommy, a perfect example of.

3) As always, whenever you let Tommy Tienanmen near keyboard, Communist China is a wonderful place full of unicorns and rainbows that we all really ought to emulate. It doesn’t matter what the subject matter is, Tommy will find a way to jack off to Chairman Mao’s portrait, but we’ve come to expect that.

Did we miss something?

Do tell.


P.S.: Tommy? You make quite the point of dropping the fact that you are, allegedly, currently in Greece which, in journojizzm-speak, means that you’re racking up the expense account at the hotel bar in the prettiest, poshiest hotel you could find while making up shit based on the AP wire. This is, we presume, supposed to be impressive. We were in Greece too, as well as a number too large for you to count to of other countries. So do we get our press card now?

No, never mind, you can keep it. The only people we’d ever want to willingly associate with would kick us in the teeth if we as much as hinted at having press credentials.

And we’d be grateful to them too.

Rope. Tree. Journalist.

    Let’s face it…the Obama Administration is FDR redux. It is unclear that anything done by the Obama administration actually averted catastrophe. Rather, their actions probably delayed natural market clearing mechanisms. The players in the financial crisis were “big boys” (including Freddie and Fannie) who knew, or should have known, the risks, and should have borne the consequences. The landscape today would be different, but there were plenty of assets with value that would still be around today, if in other forms or under different ownership. Furthermore, the subsequent actions of the Obama administration and Democrat controlled congress, i.e., intrusive actions (discarding bankruptcy law and acquiring GM), misguided policy (Dodd-Frank, Cap & Trade) and the essence of price fixing (ObamaCare and the drilling moratorium), have resulted in stagnation due to the additional costs and uncertainty now smothering our economic system

    Back when I was a drunken sailor, when we blew a pay check in one night, we called it spending like a congressman.
    And I stopped spending while I still had enough money to get back to the ship.

    The only unanswered question is which commie block country we will morph into after next year. I predict a mix of Albania and North Korea. Sandbox economics and idol worship. Even if Timmy keeps printing cheaper dollars and the brakes get locked up next week, it’s too late. The Democrats are determined to destroy the assets of the middle class. And the Republicans don’t have the stones to stop them.

    That would be the case if they had, in fact, taken the risks all on their own with full awareness of the likely consequences.

    At least part of it, however, was loaners being commanded by imperial edict to give loans they knew damn well wouldn’t be paid back, because having requirements is raaacist. When the inevitable happened, the DemCong threw them to the jackals.

    Are you responsible for breaking your leg if someone pushed you off the cliff?

    With all due respect your highness, but what have we done to draw such wrath as this? To assign such a task is to require the dutiful LC to dance perilously close to the edge of insanity, my Physician begs me to abstain. I had a note but my Dog ate it….

    Obama would veto Republican budget bill (Obama wants to bankrupt this country)

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — President Barack Obama would veto a House Republican bill that requires Congress to add a balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution before raising the country’s debt limit, the White House said Monday, as action in the debt-ceiling debate moved to Capitol Hill. The House GOP’s “Cut, Cap and Balance Act” “would undercut the government’s “ability to meet its core commitments to seniors, middle-class families and the most vulnerable, while reducing our ability to invest in our future,” the White House said in a policy statement about the bill, which would also cut spending from the 2012 budget

    From the article:

    Either we both put our nations on more sustainable growth paths — which requires cutting, taxing and investing for the future — or we’re looking at a world in which democracies are going to turn on themselves and fight over shrinking pies, with China having a growing say over how big the slices will be.

    He will never understand that the creation of wealth cannot come through political manipulation and social programs.
    Hmm…He does mention the debilitating effect of organized labor, but only as a descriptive of the troubles of the nanny state. :em03:

    As far as cutting anything, he won’t dare venture to say what needs cutting (Baby Boomers maybe?)
    Oh…and tax, tax, tax, the progressive solution for what ails ya’.

    But there is an adult lurking. China…

    Damn, who’s your daddy, asshole!
    Malevolent adult that is, one who knows how to control a large population; by slaughtering the generation that holds the empirical knowledge of free thinkers who know why a tyrannical government is wrong.

    From Larry Summers:

    Never forget, never forget, and I think it’s very important for Democrats especially to remember this, that if Hitler had not come along, Franklin Roosevelt would have left office in 1941 with an unemployment rate in excess of 15 percent and an economic recovery strategy that had basically failed.

    Apparently FDR is just like O’Stalin.
