Betray Us? Yes They Can-Yes They Did !!

Sounds familiar doesn’t it? This time it isn’t hollow words, but an actuality foisted upon us by John Boehner and the rethuglican party. We gave these pussies the victory they begged for in November. A victory that was absolutely necessary to turn around this rudderless ship of state. The republican party got even more than they asked for, a massacre in the House and a whittling down of the democrat’s dominance in the Senate.

So now it’s time for the real showdown. I’ll chose to ignore extension of the Bush-era tax codes, since that was a no-brainer for the left to cave-in on. They knew what they were doing and had fully gamed this budget battle. The tax extensions were very small potatoes, and they could benefit somewhat by being seen as willing to accept their fate at the hands of the GOP in Congress over them.

They decided after 11/2 that it was possible to be completely delinquent in their responsibilities to produce and pass the 2011 budget, take their election lumps, then turn around and get nearly all they want while the repube-icans run from taking the heat of your assinine demagoguery. They bet on the repubs being the pussy-assed wimps they’ve become to roll-over and compromise over the likes of Pelousy and Dirty-Harry bleatings of bullshit. They bet the inside-the-beltway GOP elites would beat their chests over realpolitik to decry ‘everybody loses’ if we even try to shut the government down.

I knew it was over when Madame Butter-Boehner whined “We can’t impose our will on the Senate.” That’s Loser Talk and he IS A LOSER ! Unfortunately we are too, and we’re the ones really stuck with the butcher’s bill.

We gave the assholes another chance, when time and time again we got nothing for our efforts. We mobilized, made calls, hit the streets and organized for your candidates. We pulled off a political victory the likes we haven’t seen in decades and you shat your pants and pissed when Nancy told us “Six million seniors will starve”. We made it real, real clear that we were through with funding NPR, PBS, Planned Parenthood and NEA and you fucked us. You let Obama use our military as pawns to go to the mat over funding the infanticide? The ONE and ONLY whup-ass card you have controlling 1 out of 3 seats of government was a shutdown of government. Your running in fear from this, proved to the left that they can do anything they want, get anything they want and the GOP won’t do a damned thing about it. This was the hill we were willing to die on, but you and your worthless cowards sent a message that there is NO hill you are willing to die on. Much better to keep telling us that ‘politics is the art of compromise’ when compromise is what got us here, than risking your newly found sinecures.

From the perspective of the Independent voters, you just showed that you can’t be trusted to do anything except bend over for your masters. Do you think that just might affect their votes in 2012? Wouldn’t they be better off going with the other side?

I can’t articulate the depths of your cowardice. I can’t begin to describe the sense of utter, irrevocable betrayal, that I and millions of others feel right now. Don’t you and your ilk, ever, EVER sully your fellow countrymen, by asking or expecting our support. We gave you all that we had in the Fall, every ounce of effort and gold we could spare and it came down to a ridiculous $38 billion. Mr. Speaker (and I hope we can change that title soon) do you really think we should be partying like it’s 1999, since we’re the rubes that are treated alike by BOTH sides of the aisle? Do you really know that you game is over, forever with “We The People”?

May your treasonous abuse of the American people be met by misfortune and misery the rest of your natural lives, as it seems that no one will stand for America and our reward is that everyone will fall, because “we trusted you to do the job you were sent to do”. That was a clear, overwhelming and crystal-clear mandate to save us from the left. You’ve not only failed, but EPIC FAILED, and you didn’t even try to win.

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” -Lincoln

We gave you that power and you gave it away without a word, therefore you have no honor, no character, no love of your country or fellowmen. You love your power over all of that. Enjoy it while you can, you’re illusion of power will be most fleeting.

All over $38 billion out of TRILLIONS.

FUCK YOU !!! Reap the whirlwind.

Boehner is establishment. We knew this was going to happen when they blocked Bachmann from a leadership position.

Hopefully, he will be voted out.

Planned Parenthood receives $350 million annually from the US government. This may sound like a lot of money, and indeed it is, to you and me. But in the context of the Federal Budget, it’s utterly trivial. To put it in perspective, even subsequent to the withdrawal of troops from the region, President Obama is still spending about 400 million… Read more »

So, they provide mammograms, do they? Well, either the CEO is lying, or the employees who work for PP are lying.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD CEO’S FALSE MAMMOGRAM CLAIM EXPOSED

There are at least two clinics in my area that work off of donation. They provide all those services, without touching (that I’m aware of) a dime of government money.

Well, either the CEO is lying, or the employees who work for PP are lying. The person who made the video is lying, or at the very least was talking to the wrong people. Either way, Planned Parenthood does provide mammograms. This site contains a spreadsheet showing every single provider of breast and cervical cancer services in the state of… Read more »

So Congress is patting itself on the back for cutting $38 billion dollars on a $3.7 TRILLION dollar budget. Nice. To put that in perspective, that’s like me realizing I’m $1000 short on my $4000 monthly budget, so I cut it $40.

We’re screwed.

I have to disagree: a half year or so of a budget isn’t worth the political capital: 1) We succeeded in getting cuts through without providing much legit fodder for the left to scream about (as vile as PP is, for example, cutting their money would have rallied a lot of moderates to their cause), and this isn’t the real… Read more »

Muzzy, you idiot. That money extorted from the taxpayer does pay for abortions. By paying administrative costs, salaries, and various permitted services, it frees money from donations that would otherwise be spent on those things, to pay for abortions.

A very good discussion of the “cut” in the comments on this thread over at Ace’s Place. Many cons and pros, but it’s discussed in detail and in, most cases, a rational manner. Pretty much comes down to the fact that we DON’T have the power, yet, to do much more than what was done. Yet.

On top of all of that, I would have added my own rider or line-in-the-sand: Impose a 50 percent tax rate to all income over $500k and close all loopholes.
