So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

English-To-English Translation, Volume 2

This E2E thing could turn into a regular feature. I really think it unlocks the code to the understanding the bewildering scramble of logical inconsistencies that is the Progressive mind. Plus, whenever a Progressive speaks, producing E2E is as easy as stealing candy from a baby.

The Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama provided another opportunity to explore the E2E format today. BHO gave good press conference today, on the topic of the debt ceiling deal he is “leading from behind” on.

The E2E format is a very versatile format. So, volume 2 won’t focus on the words of the Empty Suit himself … for the most part. But before continuing on with the main point, how can I possibly take a pass on this stupendous display of an utter lack of self-awareness from the Empty Suit?
And this is part of the problem with a political process where folks are rewarded for saying irresponsible things to win elections or obtain short-term political gain, when we actually are in a position to try to do something hard we haven’t always laid the groundwork for.

How’s That ‘Hope and Change’ Workin’ Out For Ya?


But I digress. While there are other stupendously embarrassing statements from the Empty Suit to pick on in this transcript, the Teleprompter seemed to have its talking points in relatively good working order this morning. (Side note: LAS challenges BHO to a televised debate 11 pm at night, 4 drink minimum – try to spin that one Soros, Inc.)

No, in this E2E volume I shall focus on the questions asked by the sycophantically biased MSM, complicit enablers of inflicting the Empty Suit upon the republic.


All right, with that I’m going to take some questions, starting with Ben Feller.
Q Thank you very much, Mr. President. Two quick topics. Given that you’re running out of time, can you explain what is your plan for where these talks go if Republicans continue to oppose any tax increases, as they’ve adamantly said that they will? And secondly, on your point about no short-term stopgap measure, if it came down to that and Congress went that route, I know you’re opposed to it but would you veto it?

E2E: Please, Mr. President, save us from the evil Republicans! Don’t let them make this a choice between national default and spending cuts able to stay under the current ceiling!


Q Do you see any path to a deal if they don’t budge on taxes?

E2E: {First put Beavis and Butthead laughing into your mind, for the full effect}. Default! Default! Blame those evil Republicans!


Q Do you think he’ll [Boehner] come back to the $4 trillion deal?

E2E: Professor Marvel, you never guess, you know. Will Oz survive the evil Republicans?


Rich Wolf.
Q Thank you, Mr. President. You keep talking about balance, shared sacrifice, but in the $4 trillion deal that you’re talking about roughly, it seems to be now at about four-to-one spending to taxes; we’re talking about $800 billion in taxes, roughly. That doesn’t seem very fair to some Democrats. I’m wondering if you could clarify why we’re at that level. And also, if you could clarify your Social Security position — would any of the money from Social Security, even from just Chained CPI, go toward the deficit as opposed to back into the trust fund?

E2E: My New Age Soccer Mom taught me everything must be “fair.” Four followed by twelve zeroes is not equal to 8 followed by nine zeroes. Please explain, Professor Marvel.

Sam Stein.
Q Thank you, Mr. President. With unemployment now at 9.2 percent and a large chunk of those lost jobs coming from the private sector, is now a really good time to cut trillions of dollars in spending? How will we still create jobs? And then to piggyback on the Social Security question — what do you say to members of your own party who say it doesn’t contribute to the deficit, let’s consider it but not in the context of this deal?
E2E: Tell the American people gub’ment spending “creates jobs.” {recall Beavis and Butthead laughing image} Please, Professor Marvel, tell us how to keep Social Security “off the table” indefinitely.


Q Are there things with respect to Social Security, like raising the retirement age, means testing — are those too big a chunk for –
E2E: Oops, too much detail, right? I broke sycophantically biased MSM discipline, didn’t I?


All right, Lesley Clark.
Q Thank you, Mr. President.

E2E: Where are my knee pads?


Q Have you — you’ve talked with economists, you said that economists have agreed that a deal needs to be made. Have you worked with new U.S. business leaders at all to lobby Congress to raise the debt ceiling? And if so, who are you talking to?

E2E: Please, Professor Marvel, give us confidence you have been consulting with other smarties.


Q And can you say, as the clock ticks down, whether or not the administration is –

E2E: Really, DO you have any knee pads behind that podium?


Q Can you say, as the clock ticks down, whether or not the administration is working on any sort of contingency plans if things don’t happen by August?

E2E: Oh, Professor Marvel, please tell us how you will vanquish the evil Republicans!


George Condon.
Q Mr. President, to follow on Chip’s question, you said that the Speaker faces tough politics in his caucus. Do you have complete confidence that he can deliver the votes on anything that he agrees to? Is he in control of his caucus?

E2E: Professor Marvel, please tell us the evil Republicans will soon implode!


Q So your confidence in him wasn’t shaken by him walking away from the big deal he said he wanted?

E2E: Professor Marvel, REALLY YOU MUST tell us the evil Republicans will soon implode!


Last question. April Ryan.
Q Mr. President, hi. I want to revisit the issue of sacrifice. In 2009, you said that — expect the worst to come; we have not seen the worst yet. And now with these budget cuts looming, you have minorities, the poor, the elderly, as well as people who are scared of losing jobs fearful. And also, what say you about Congressman Chaka Fattah’s bill, the Debt Free America Act? Do you support that bill? Are you supporting the Republican bill that is similar to his, modeled after Congressman Fattah’s bill?

E2E: Hmmmmm …. The devil will, of course, be in the details.


Update 7/13/2011

Mark Levin called exactly the right next move on his radio show this evening. Interest due on the debt in August is about 15% of revenue into the Treasury for August. A little more math, and you figure out entitlements can be covered if approximately half the bureaucracy is given an unplanned vacation. House GOP should just pass a spending bill making debt interest, entitlements, and military salaries spending priorities #1, #2, and #3. Then let Dingy Harry and Veto Barry own defaulting or stiffing Grandma instead. The House GOP could even take the rest of July off in good conscience after passing this bill tomorrow.

Repeat one month at a time until Barry caves.
