The Hell You Say!

While Weepy Boner and Dingy Reid continue their Kabuki dance, which is getting profoundly unfunny to watch, somebody notes that both their retarded “plans”, which address nothing other than making sure that President Golfsalot won’t have to deal with this nasty debate while he’s out campaigning for four more years, won’t save our vaunted AAA rating.

Who’s that “somebody” crying “a pox on both their houses”, we hear you ask?

Moody’s, that’s who.

The limited magnitude of both debt plans put forward by congressional leaders would not put the nation’s AAA credit rating back on solid footing, Moody’s Investors Service announced Friday.

All together now: UNEXPECTEDLY!

Of course, those of us with a brain have long known that simply “avoiding a default”, something that won’t happen anyway unless President PissyPants chooses to let us default, won’t restore confidence in our ability to not spend ourselves into an eventual, inevitable default at some point down the line, something that investors, for some strange reason, tend to be interested in.

It’s almost as if they, in addition to obviously worrying about whether the monthly minimum payment is going to be made, also take into consideration whether it’s likely that we’ll be able to pay them in the future. Who knew?

Our government, all of it, are a bunch of raging spendaholics, and to expect anybody to believe that they’re taking their problems seriously when all they do is raise their own credit limit is beyond daft, it’s so far into the depths of dementia that it defies description.

It’s like an alcoholic sitting at the bar getting shitfaced as he has every night for the last 10 years, running up the tab until the bartender finally has to mention something, answering that yeah, sure he knows he has a problem and sure, he’ll do something about it somewhere down the line, maybe, but for now just run the tab up some more and hand out a round to everybody in the house.

Do you think the bartender is going to be convinced by that? If you’re a fiddy2er you probably would. After all, he promised!

Unfortunately for our credit rating, Moody’s et al aren’t fiddy2ers.

So congrats, Weepy Boner, all that you’ve achieved bargaining with yourself while the DemCong refused to put a counter-offer on the table is a slight postponement of the inevitable.

“But, we would have gotten bad press if we hadn’t done it!”

Yeah, and now that we’ve caved again, once again maxing out our grandkids’ credit cards, the Make Be-Fucking Leave OgabeMedia will be positively fawning over us.

Right.

Cocknoodles.

Thatisall.

Obama, the Capitulator-in-Chief and his Milquetoast enabler, Harry “the spine” Reid are bending over right this minute for the Republicans. Meanwhile, John “Sweet Cheeks” Bohener and his crew of ‘publican enablers do the same as both sides, trou dropped and tuchuses prepped, eyeball each other and say in unison… you first. We’re run by a ruling class that can’t even… Read more »

damn….I’ve been reading up on this……. Obama should have kept his yap shut and let congress handle it. He fucked it up, changing horses in midstream. Folks, I just keep prepping, some laugh, but this ant will have the silver, chow, water and guns. For I do believe we are in a terminal economic decline, it will be a mess.… Read more »

Obama is a cancer eating away at the American flesh. Many have seen this from the beginning and it was confirmed with the passing of Obama Care against the will of the majority of people. But Obama has been supported by willing congressional Democrats headed by Pelosi and Reid. There is much anger in the country. It is festering in… Read more »

I said it before, but it bears repeating:

The system is broken, but nobody can allow themselves to believe it. We have a tyrant in the WH, and a rubber-stamp congress. Sure, they go through some Kabuki theater as they’re reaching for the rubber stamp, but the end result is the same. Wake the fuck up, people …

At a press conference held by the House “Out of Poverty Caucus”, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) lambasted President Obama over the debt ceiling deal and called for people to march on the White House in protest. Said Conyers: We’ve got to educate the American people at the same time we educate the President of the United States. The Republicans, Speaker… Read more »

Elections have consequences. The election in 2008 gave us the current President and (for 2 years) his party ran the whole show in DC. The election in 2010 blunted the power of the Democrats in the Senate and gave the House over to the Republicans, led by what seems to be RINO’s. The election in 2012 has the potential to… Read more »

When a cut is not a cutBy Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) – 08/01/11 12:15 PM ET One might think that the recent drama over the debt ceiling involves one side wanting to increase or maintain spending with the other side wanting to drastically cut spending, but that is far from the truth. In spite of the rhetoric being thrown around,… Read more »

An interesting thought just wandered thru my head.

What would happen if we passed a law stating that next year’s budget could be no higher than this years income?

and put some very specific limits on what counts as ‘income’.
