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 organize a proper prison style gang rape.

    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.
    My wife, though……my greatest strength and weakest link.
    I have little but contempt for our giovernment now, regardless of affiliation or position.

    I cannot recall where I saw it at, but Bwaney Fwank lisps that our credit rating don’t matter !!! I mean after all this is the guy who thinks that Freddie and Fannie are still good to go.
    Recall my ass, it’s past time that all of the parasites in DC are hung from a tree. Then we put people in there that have had real jobs, that know how to balance a budget, will toss the United Nazis the fuck out of America, and tell the mooslim goatfuckers to piss off.

    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 both conservatives and liberals. Like many others, I can not stand to look at Obama, let alone listen to him. It becomes clearer every day that this man is a charlatan and a destructive force. He has surpassed Jimmy Carter as the worst of the worst. This experiment in affirmative action has failed. His failure has nothing to do with the pigment of his skin, but it had everything to do with winning the election.

    One can only hope that it is not to late to repair the damage that has already been done. There is still sixteen months to endure. What more damage can he reek on our bruised and battered country? Pay close attention to Executive Orders and further regulations to subvert our Constitution. Obama has many foot soldiers. They all must go!

    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 …

    They are of the People, and return again to mix with the People, having no more durable preeminence than the different Grains of Sand in an Hourglass. Such an Assembly cannot easily become dangerous to Liberty. They are the Servants of the People, sent together to do the People’s Business, and promote the public Welfare; their Powers must be sufficient, or their Duties cannot be performed. They have no profitable Appointments, but a mere Payment of daily Wages, such as are scarcely equivalent to their Expences; so that, having no Chance for great Places, and enormous Salaries or Pensions, as in some Countries, there is no triguing or bribing for Elections.
    Benjamin Franklin, letter to George Whatley, May 23, 1785

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” –Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776.

    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 Boehner or Majority Leader Cantor did not call for Social Security cuts in the budget deal. The President of the United States called for that. My response to him is to mass thousands of people in front of the White House to protest this.

    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 rid us of the current President, another ten or so Democrat Senators, and a deepening of the majorities in the House…along with Primarying their leaders for being weenies.

    I’m holding out until 2012.

    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, the real debate is over how much government spending will increase.

    No plan under serious consideration cuts spending in the way you and I think about it. Instead, the “cuts” being discussed are illusory, and are not cuts from current amounts being spent, but cuts in projected spending increases. This is akin to a family “saving” $100,000 in expenses by deciding not to buy a Lamborghini, and instead getting a fully loaded Mercedes, when really their budget dictates that they need to stick with their perfectly serviceable Honda. But this is the type of math Washington uses to mask the incriminating truth about their unrepentant plundering of the American people.

    While I’m not a Ron Paul fan, especially his isolationist positions, I think he summed up the fodder left from the kabuki dance party clearly.

    And now the VP who doesn’t have two brain cells calls the tea party terrorists. So far the only one’s he and his ilk have called ‘terrorist’ seems to be his fellow Americans. And the press gave Sarah a hard time when she put targets on pictures, huh…..I sincerely hope that this country can make it through until January 2013.

    If you don’t think The Kenyon Klingon Fucker isn’t doing this on purpose then read this:

    Cloward-Piven Paradise Now?

    The money quote:

    As Obama pushes and prods the US economy and instigates social unrest, it could be that he believes a Cloward-Piven-style utopia resides just beyond the horizon — a progressive panacea where an election-free, classless society, thankful for a simple crust of bread, looks to Barack Obama to keep the peace by remaining in power indefinitely.

    Therefore, unless all of America, regardless of class or political persuasion, pays attention to the potential for a bleak future that lies ahead and realizes the President’s non-plan could be itself an actual calculated plan, the resulting consequences will affect everyone, as Barack Obama transforms a once great nation into Cloward and Piven’s idea of paradise.

    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’.
