Just Get On With It, Already!

Seriously, is there anything going on in the news that hasn’t to do with the pointless, utterly predictable debt limit charade with the Potomac Parasites?

Because, quite frankly, the outcome is as predictable as the posturing is tedious.

On the one hand we have the McCocklesses of the Senate busying themselves with abdicating their responsibilities and kicking the can further down the road, even further than our grandchildren. The “brilliance” of their plan is that once Ogabe has to personally refuse to cut spending, he will be utterly stuck with the bad press as the Make Believe Media descend upon him like a pack of wolves, eviscerating their Anointed One while not making the slightest attempt at blaming the GOP for the whole shitstorm.

About that… No, forget about it. We’d have to create an argument so convincing that even the Rick Morans of the world would understand it, and we’re just not up to that kind of exercise in futility.

The downside, of course, is that Ogabe gets everything that he wants: The issue gets postponed even further so as not to inconvenience his re-election campaign.

Oh, and there’s that bit about our grandchildren and great-grandchildren living in hovels at the mercy of the Almighty State as everything goes down the proverbial toilet when the inevitable bills come due.

All in return for a bunch of non-binding promises to cut spending over the next ten years, cuts that will never happen just as no promise of Congress’ has ever actually materialized here in the reality that we are forced to inhabit.

What a deal!

We can’t think of any plan as idiotic as that, even including the French decision to let their cavalry charge the English longbows at Agincourt.

Sure, there are signs of balls in the House GOP with their Cut, Cap and Balance Bill and Amendment, particularly the Amendment bit since it, unlike anything else that Congress has ever passed, is actually binding upon future Congresses, but best of luck getting that through the McCockless Senate of the Surrender Monkeys. Ogabe, of course, has already promised to veto that, should it pass, proving once again that he’d rather destroy the United States than give an inch on his current mission to, well, destroy the United States.

Any ideas that he might be bluffing when it comes to threatening to starve grandma to death if he doesn’t have his way seem rather naive at this point.

Anyway, the House might actually force his hand and, whether he follows up on his threats or not, actually force him to own the consequences up to the next election.

If they stick to their guns, the chances of which are slim to none. At the end of the day, as we have all learned from bitter experience, when faced with the choice between doing their jobs, following through on the promises they got elected on and giving up life time access to fucking teenage interns and receiving fat bribes, politicians will always choose the easy way out, which is to punt.

Maybe some of them won’t, but not enough to get anything accomplished. The power of the free pubescent pussy is just too strong for aging, fat, balding cocknozzles to resist.

So they’ll work out some “grand bargain” which will only serve to land our kids with the bill.

Of all of the flights that were stopped on 9/11, why did it have to be flight 93?

If it had been one of the flights hitting the Twin Towers or the Pentagon, some actual human beings might have been saved.

Thatisall.

    These idiots need to be employed elsewhere. Not in a fast food environment though. When I go for fast food I want to get what I ordered, and these fools could fuck up a Happy Meal.

    Don’t forget to include the traitorous, splooge-licker, McCain in this assessment. He’s fully in McNutless on the Plan B. That fucker MUST go and as soon as possible. But watch, just like the morons in Houston that keep re-electing She-Ra Jackson-Race Baiter-in-Chief, the morons in Az. will reelect McCain too.

    The problem is NOT our system of government, it’s the apathetic, no-nothing, ADD-riddled, fucking voters thats the issue.

    I hate to argue with you, but I don’t see how that follows.

    What happens when they ignore it? They’re not going to jail, will we have the 9 High Wizards making our budget? Will our $trillion budget be decided on a 5-4 basis?

    The best scenario for the future of our nation is an asteroid strike. Not an asteroid the size of Texas, a smaller one that just messes things up so when it settles down, we can start over and put the words, “This time we mean it” at the end.

    “Ogabe, of course, has already promised to veto that, should it pass….”

    I’ve heard at least two reports that the Constitutional-”Scholar”-in-Chief has threatened to veto a congressionally proposed constitutional amendment. How is that possible? If Congress proposes an amendment to the states, that means it passed by two-thirds in each house. That same proportion has the constitutional power to override any presidential veto. Thus the process of proposing has never involved the executive branch. More to the point, the business of amending our constitution is solely between the Congress and the states. Has His Skahlahleyness unleashed his Dubbel Soopur Seekrit LIVING DOCUMENT Skeelz and uncovered an Amendment Veto Penumbra/Emanation that no one with more brain matter than wilted lettuce has ever once seen in our Republic’s entire history? Or is the MBM once again placing who, what, where, why far behind its most cherished of W’s: wishful-”thinking”? Am I missing something here?

    Senate group offers $3.75 trillion deficit cuts


    (Reuters) – A bipartisan group of U.S. senators on Tuesday revived an ambitious budget plan that could provide new ideas for breaking the impasse in Congress over raising the nation’s credit limit by August 2.

    President Barack Obama threw his support behind the proposal by the “Gang of Six” senators, saying it was broadly consistent with his approach on reducing debt and deficits.

    Obama urged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a fellow Democrat, and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell to start “talking turkey” about it.

    The DC circus is just that. What really matters is the continuation of steady trade and roll over in the bond market. Wall St. will have the last word regardless.

    No argument there. At least not inasmuch as they undoubtedly will try to penumbra and emanate their way around it which would, I agree, leave it up to the Supreme Waffle House to straighten it out.

    Not ideal, not even close to ideal, but it’s still more than the usual, non-binding in any conceivable way, empty promises about non-specified cuts to occur sometime during the next five Congresses or so in exchange for massive tax hikes right now, effective yesterday.

    Lest you get me wrong: I’m not a big fan of Cut, Cap and Trade for the very simple reason that it’s not nearly enough, it’s not even close to enough, but compared with the utter bull crap peddled by McCockless and the Senate Suckweasels it’s still a step in the right direction. A baby step, to be sure, but still a step.

    In my ideal universe, we’d tell Ogabe the Munificent to go fucking pound sand and crash against the debt ceiling if he wants to own that particular clusterfuck as well. That or agree to a real hack and slash campaign on the bloated Imperial Government, but so far CC&P is the best the dickless weenies in Congress can come up with.

    :em08:

    Sigh, you’re right:

    The best scenario for the future of our nation is an asteroid strike. Not an asteroid the size of Texas, a smaller one that just messes things up so when it settles down, we can start over and put the words, “This time we mean it” at the end.

    “Allow me to demonstrate the full firepower of this battle station.”

    We’ll see. The Senate will block CC&P anyway and, if they don’t, Ogabe the Narcissist is too terminally stupid to realize that this is his last shot at dodging this particular bullet and thus he will veto it.

    New Grand Bi-Partisan Debt Plan: Cut $500 Billion Now, Increase Taxes by $1 Trillion

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Declaring “11th hour urgency” to raise the government’s borrowing limit, President Barack Obama on Tuesday hailed a plan by “Gang of Six” senators from both parties to reduce federal deficits as the kind of balanced approach that could break an economy-threatening deadlock. He said it was time for Congress as a whole to rally around such a proposal.

    “We don’t have any more time to engage in symbolic gestures, we don’t have any more time to posture. It’s time to get down to the business of actually solving this problem,” the president said.

    Hey Buckwheat –
    I realize that you are a “Constitutional Scholar Professor” in Chicago parlance, so I’ll write slow and use simple words:

    1) Read Article 5 of the US Constitution
    2) You ain’t in it, homie

    So, with your intention to “Veto” a proposed Constitutional Amendment – You Don’t Get to, shitheel.

    Dumbass.
