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).

President WTF Still Has No Plan

Ok, like everyone else in the republic, I've had a night's sleep to mull over yesterday's non-vote on Speaker Boehner's last best compromise offer for addressing the debt crisis in this congressional session.

I still think the GOP / TEA Party coalition missed a tactical opportunity by failing to pass the Speaker's plan through the House. But at least it stalled for the right reasons - principled convservative objections.

I also think Speaker Boehner and the House leadership team have it in them to do the yeoman's work necessary to address these objections in a manner  sufficient to pass this bill through the House today. Because they are good people with honorable intentions.

They are also capable of counting votes, as their particular profession demands - as last night demonstrated. If they don't have the votes they should just fold their hands and allow the GOP / TEA Party coalition to walk away from the debate bathed in the glory of the only side in the debate that made an honest effort toward resolution. History will recognize this even if today's corrupt gang of propagandist hacks in the MSM will not.

If the Boehner plan is dead - it's back to the Levin plan for me. Call bullshit on the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.

*Do not lift the ceiling at all*

Anyone paying attention already knows there are enough current revenues to cover all obligations. Which means if the Empty Suit and his gang of Progressive Alinskyite anarchists (who haven't even bothered to put together a budget proposal since 2009) apply the proper priorities to the allowance We the People have given them, there will be no "default" - the only thing that needs to be stiffed is the bureaucracy that does so much good for our economy every day. And they will be proven to be the lying sacks o' s**t they are.

Update 7/30/11

I love it when a plan comes together.

And it's all good on this fine summer Saturday evening.  Think maybe I'll walk the dog.

Update 7/31/2011

I entered this debacle clearly stating my two no-shit-no-compromise acceptance criteria: (1) dollar-for-dollar match in *specific* spending cuts to amount of debt ceiling lift, (2) not one red cent in new taxes in today's soft economy.  I have also laid out a "nice to have" third condition: (3) force BHO to come back to the well for another ceiling lift before November 2012.  Just to have the argument again.

The Boehner compromise plan that passed the House on Friday met all three conditions.  The modified compromise being reported tonight gives away condition (3) to BHO and his corrupt gang of Progressive hacks.

Tonight's compromise, as reported, also fails on condition (1).  The failure is embedded in the so-called 'trigger' that kicks in if Congress itself can't find another $1T+ in *specific* cuts in the near future.  This, of course, makes the 'trigger' a fait accompli the moment this kabuki condition is signed into law.  The trigger calls for approximately $500B in reductions to both defense and medicare spending.  Supposedly these conditions are equally obnoxious to both the Right and the Left.  Not so.  The Right correctly recoils at the defense cuts.  The Left sees the medicare cuts as a speed bump on the way to their illusory social welfare utopia.  The Left will obstruct the commission that is supposed to avert the trigger.  Mark it.  They are probably discussing their long game strategy on this point, at this very moment, on a Soros funded teleconference. 

*This deal just became a bad deal - and no deal is still better than a bad deal.*  The 'trigger' is pointed right at the republic's heart by BHO and his corrupt gang of Progressive hacks.

Debt Ceiling Wars - Do Not Let the Perfect Be the Enemy of the Good

“Do not let the perfect be the enemy of the good” - I heard these words spoken by Speaker Boehner on Hannity’s radio show this afternoon.  Mr. Boehner, along with the rest of the GOP leadership team, was out today doing the yeoman’s political work around building a consensus and a working majority around a plan with verifiable written details.  Their latest plan to directly address the DC big government ruling class’s spending addiction is their third offering of a plan with verifiable written details.  The DC big government ruling class has still offered a grand total of zero of these.   The sophomoric progressive ideologues in the White House, Dingy Harry Reid’s gang of kleptocratic hacks in the Democrat controlled Senate, and the pack of propagandists that comprise their water carriers in the MSM, are not interested in offering useful plans.  They only continue their long worn pattern of repeating lie after lie to the clueless independents they have cynically conditioned to accept their bullshit.  Dingy Harry Reid’s latest head fake does not address DC’s spending addiction any more than a single man urinating into the Pacific Ocean could credibly claim to change the ocean’s pH.  It’s only operative aim is to give President WTF a clear runway with a blank check through his next election.

Speaker Boehner and the GOP leadership team wasted precious time in the always futile attempt to negotiate a solution with the DC big government ruling class.  The DC big government ruling class is not now and has never been interested in a solution to the rising debt.  The DC big government ruling class is only interested in ‘win at any cost’ political strategies to enable them to continue unimpeded in their spending binge.  These strategies almost always involve obfuscation, issue avoidance, and deconstruction of reality to line up clueless independents behind their agenda – on an emotional level that is all too often the enemy of rational reason.  The DC big government ruling class was using the time they were tying down Speaker Boehner and team in fruitless negotiations with the White House to pursue these strategies with the usual aim of disingenuously demonizing any specific suggestion for reigning in their spending addiction. 

Speaker Boehner and the GOP leadership team finally grew tired of being taken for fools by the White House clown parade.  At this point Speaker Boehner and the GOP leadership did the yeoman’s political work of framing a plan they believe, in their best political judgment, has the best possible chance of doing the most good for reigning in spending and passing both the House and the Senate.

The DC big government ruling class’s current champion, the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama, showing the lack of discipline and patience characteristic of the rookie ideologue, reacted to this turn of events by throwing a prime time hissy fit. 

The Empty Suit's sophmoric performance caught the attention of the clueless independents, if the rate of phone calls into Capitol Hill today is an indicator.  Clueless independents have a short attention span, a habit of demanding something be done (even when nothing yields superior results), and tend to repay a single well played round of something with cycle upon cycle of mindless brand driven voting.  The clueless independents at this moment are as mad as a swarm of hornets at everyone in DC.  Their state of mind still plays to the advantage of the lying, demagogic, tactics of the DC big government ruling class.

This is a time for the Conservative Ascendancy to *not* snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  Clueless independents decide elections.  The election of 2012 is for all the marbles.  Just imagine the wreckage BHO and the Progressives could inflict on the republic unencumbered by re-election concerns.

The Boehner plan isn’t great, but it’s not bad either.  But best of all – clueless independents will get that its victory is a defeat for the DC big government ruling class.  And even better, after they’ve had a half year to rest up from this round of the debate, its short leash will give principled conservatives another shot at further educating them in the 2012 election cycle.

The entire House GOP caucus should line up behind the Boehner plan and get it passed through the House with a roar.  The entire Senate GOP caucus should hold ranks to prevent a successful cloture vote on Dingy Harry’s head fake.  Then it will be up to Dingy Harry and the White House to explain to clueless independents, while their attention is temporarily transfixed on the actual issue with the demand something be done,  why the last plan left standing isn’t good enough.

Update Wednesday evening

Regarding the debt ceiling debacle, which has turned out to be the penultimate moment of chaos (so far) in Barack Hussein Obama’s hyper-chaotic first term, I think I made my position on the way forward for principled conservatives quite clear last night. The prize is driving Barack Hussein Obama from the White House. There can be no credible resolution as long as he remains in office. The clueless independent voters that swing elections, including the election of 2008 lest we forget, are the key to attaining this prize. This key is within our reach right now – *if* we do what’s necessary, with agility and laser focused purpose, to ensure these voters exit the debacle blaming the right demagogue for the chaos – the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama. My advice to principled conservatives: keep your eye on the prize.

Having become used to being almost always right, I naturally observed opinion in the blogosphere throughout the day, just to see how it measured up to my standard.

A laundry list …

The day began with some counter-productive shooting inside the tent from purist elements.

Well known “aisle-reach-acrosser” (aka “loser”) John McCain, quoting the Wall Street Journal editorial page, stoops to the same level, and returns fire from the RINO side of the tent.

Hey guys, we can have a spirited debate without calling each other nasty names. Save that for Progressive gang of hacks.


Three established senior members of the conservative blogosphere – Erick Erickson, RS McCain, and TCOTS – take their eye off the prize.

One senior member of the conservative blogosphere – Dan Riehl - maintains solid eye contact with the prize.  But, apparently, with reservations about the company he is keeping.

The sycophantic propagandists in the MSM seemingly catch the scent of the trail I’ve laid out for them – White House Press Corps in open revolt.

DemoHacks catch the scent as well – indulge statist impulses with panicked calls for abusing the constitution.

Cato fulfills usual role of philosophical purity that is not really of pragmatic utility right now.

A report from an old trusted source that the House GOP is keeping its eye on the prize.


Let’s see what happens with the elected TEA Party caucus tomorrow. Fox News told me this evening two of its luminaries, Allen West (R-FL) and Kristi Noem (R-SD) are on board with LAS’s advice. What, doesn’t that TEA Party thing have any white males?

Update 7/28/11

Summing up my position one last time in the comment spaces on No Runny Eggs.  Chosen because the original post neatly and accurately sums up the agitated state BHO and the Corrupt Progressive gang wants us to constantly be in.  Just read Rules for Radicals.

You missed the ‘Gang of Six’ coming out to undercut the possibility of standing behind ‘Cut, Cap, and Balance’. All water under the bridge. This battle can still be won decisively.

Indpendents have been scare-mongered by Dingy Harry, BHO, and the rest of the corrupt Progressive gang (including MSM)into falsely believing not raising the ceiling is a “default” armageddon scenario. This is a trap the Progressive gang has set for themselves -since they have offered no solutions and independents are actually paying attention due to the scare mongering. To close the trap, the GOP needs to have something to call a take or leave it ‘final offer.’ Right now that’s the Boehner plan, as flawed as it is in the numbers. But the numbers don’t matter right now. What matters is the 3-D political chess game to close the trap Progressive gang has set for itself. If Boehner’s plan passes the House today – it’s check mate. The Progressives then own turning down the only available “solution” (fully credited to Boehner by independents) vs. admitting to an agitated nation they were full of s**t all along.

The republic awaits the results of the House vote.

But not until tomorrow at least.

Hey, did you see Nanny Pelosi's floor speech.  The way she was going on about educatin' the chillins', I think maybe she was the one behind slippin' the $17B in Pell grant spendin' into the anti-spendin' bill.  I think the anti-spendin' bill will stand a better chance of passin' tomorrow with this affront to common sense removed.

Quickie Analysis: Barry's Big Debt Ceiling Speech

It's Official:  The Empty Suit Has Fully Deflated

Sanctimonious. Petty.  Petulant.  *Left Wing Political - to the Nth*

Everything we've come to expect from the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama.

The Radical-Spender-In-Chief revealed his bottom line is shutting down debate on the debt issue during his re-election campaign.  So he can get re-elected and pursue his Leftist agenda unimpeded by re-election concerns.

Both the Boehner and Reid plans, as of this evening, call for a cuts-only approach (though the Reid cuts are more illusory).  Both the Boehner and Reid plans, as of this evening, reject new revenues (though Reid 'conveniently' serves in a body constitutionally prevented from initiating revenue bills).  The operational difference for President WTF is the length of the leash he is given for further deficit spending.

He used empty, cliched, poll tested(?), bullshit, words throughout.  He invoked the straw man armageddon language of "default," when he must surely know the biggest downside of not reaching a deal by the 8/2 deadline is sending roughly half the federal bureaucracy home.  That is, if he and Tiny Turbo Tax Tim Geithner apply the proper priorities.  Would you miss half the federal bureaucracy?  At least for a month?  I know I wouldn't.


Speaker Boehner's response was the yeoman's righteous response to bullshit. We all know it when we see it.

It reminded me of this guy on the night ObamaCare was shoved down our throats.

Well done, Mr. Speaker.


Now it's up to Mitch McConnell to keep 9 RINOs from breaking ranks. The republic holds its' collective breath.

Jack Wiley Dithers Exclusive: Debt Ceiling Showdown at the Oval Office Corral

Debt ceiling negotiations continued today at the White House, after Barack Hussein Obama committed an egregious breach of constitutional protocol and imperially “summoned” the leaders of a co-equal branch of government to a meeting on his home turf. Our crack investigative journalism team has learned the congressional leaders debated their response throughout the evening and finally concluded, “why not? (nothing will be decided anyway)”.

Our crack investigative journalism team is the only DC media outlet with a still functioning listening device in the Oval Office, left over from the Nixon administration. We can therefore provide you with the following raw transcript.


Obama: OK, let’s keep this under an hour – I’ve got a two o’clock tee time at Andrews.

Biden: Oooh, donuts!

Obama: I need a deal to authorize the Treasury to print more monopoly money – and pronto! Who has a plan?

Pelosi: Not me. I’m still working on the 2010 budget.

Reid: Let me know when you send that thing over, Nancy.

Obama: That reminds me - what happened to my 2012 budget?

Reid: Rejected! 97 to nuthin!

Obama: Why?

Reid: Looked too unserious when Ryan came out with his budget.

Boehner: I passed Ryan’s budget.  And 'Cut, Cap, and Balance,' too.

Reid: Rejected! Waaaay tooooo serious.

Obama: Damn, Harry, can’t you say ’yes’ to anything?

Reid: Well, I’m holding out for Mitch’s plan. I like that plan.

Obama: Me too.

Boehner: That won’t get through the House, trust me.

McConnell: Come on, John, you can do it. The public loves compromise at any price.

Obama: OK, I think we’ve made some progress here – where are my clubs?

Debt Ceiling Tug of War - No Deal is Better Than a Bad Deal

Reportedly, the establishment GOP is meeting with Barack Hussein Obama, designated champion of the Progressive Gang, to strike a last minute deal on raising the national debt ceiling limit.

I left this "Random Dropping" (aka "comment") on a couple of sites this morning.  It is worth elevating to archivable post.

My two acceptance criteria stand. (1) Real, current year, spending cuts matching any ceiling raise dollar-for-dollar. (2) Not one red cent in new, current year, revenue increases.  Then let's just get on to pounding BHO and the Progressives into the dirt in the  2012 election, shall we? Anything after that is merely notional and hangs in the balance of the election.

Memo to GOP establishment:  If you fail to meet these two criteria, prepare for a primary blood-letting in 2012.

Memo to GOP Freshman class:  Hold your leadership's feet to the fire.

"Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive"

Update 9:00 pm

A most extraordinary day.  I've spent most of it trying to beat a nasty bug.  The GOP establishment nevertheless took my immediate advice for the day, and walked away from a bad deal.  This gave us dueling press conferences between the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama and the duly elected Speaker of the House of Representatives.   

I have a more creative outline in mind for addressing today's political theatre - but could not possibly construct it tonight in my present condition.  It'll work down the road - just another post in the backlog to fill slower times.   For now, I will document my proven-to-be-never-should-be-doubted opinion on the day's events and the way forward.

The tone and tenor of the presentations were very revealing of the character of the two men. 

BHO came off as petulant precinct politician pissed off at being denied the glory of his "historic deal."  He mouthed empty words expressing concern about the potential harm to the nation if default occurred.  Yet, the only deal he will accept is one that gets him beyond the next election without denying his Leftist base the satisfaction of raising taxes in a bad economy.  He said so.  This formulation makes no logical sense, and it should be tested.  If default is armageddon, then why the strict conditions?

Speaker Boehner seemed more disappointed at a missed opportunity to do the nation's business like big boys.  Speaker Boehner is a good man.  Not exactly the bare-knuckle conservative brawler I'd prefer right now, but a good man nonetheless - and sometimes you just figure out the gameplan that wins with the team you have in the field.

This is the gameplan.   Present enough dollar-for-dollar cuts for a debt ceiling raise that will get Tiny Turbo Tax Tim Geithner's Treasury Department another six months or so of operation.  Pass it through the House.  Then Dingy Harry and Veto Barry can explain why they would rather own defaulting on the full faith and credit of the nation.  They will cave on the simple and stark choice.

The additional time can be used to attempt fully rounded negotiations on "comprehensive tax reform" - to simultaneously lower rates, broaden the base, and simplify the code.  Which all agree would raise the "revenue" Leftists scream for by growing the economy and tax base - not by punishing the investors who would like to do precisely that.  

These negotiations will be fruitless - because the Left cannot negotiate in good faith.  But at least it will be yet another opportunity to demonstrate this iron law of contemporary American politics.  Just in time to thoroughly defeat the Left once and for all in 2012.

Memo to GOP: If you take the McConnell 'Munich Treaty' escape hatch, you can be assured there will be many establishment casualties come primary season.

Contemporary Politics and Newton's Three Laws (Part 18)

And so it seems July 2011 is the historical pivot point for which this series of posts was invented. The irresistible force which is the grass roots TEA Party movement will slam into the immovable object that is the ruling elites of the Washington, DC politico establishment. And Soon.

The TEA (let me remind you the acronym stands for Taxed Enough Already) Party movement consists mostly of private citizens from the productive class who are political novices. These intrepid volunteers are supplemented by a cadre of principled conservatives who already knew the names of Edmund Burke, FA Hayek, William F. Buckley, and other great conservative thinkers.

The establishment forces consist of the big government ruling class - country club (“Rockefeller”) establishment Republicans, the entire Democrat Party, the sycophantically biased Mainstream Media (MSM) that is content to robotically carry Democrat water as pathetic little propaganda apparatchiks, the mindless Progressive indoctrination specialists that infest the intellectually stale faculty lounges of academia, and the rest of the Progressive lemmings who would be completely lost without talking points funded daily by Soros, Inc.

The battleground is the hearts and minds of the vast majority of American people. And, oh yeah, a Fourteen and a half trillion dollar (and growing) bill they are passing on to their children and grandchildren.

If you are an “American peoples,” I advise you to decide right now whether you stand behind the irresistible force or the immovable object. Because the winner in this collision will determine both the form and the function of the nation you live in. Sounds kind of important, right? (hint: It is.)


The DC establishment hacks are making economic safety net promises to you they can’t keep. Their mouths are writing checks their asses can’t cash. The checks can only be written by Americans like you and the TEA Party movement patriots. The TEA Party patriots have spent most of the last two and a half years telling you they are broke.

So, which message is more in line with your personal experience in the present dysconomy?



A kind of “free” sort of “market” economy in which the complex of bureaucratic regulation and taxation prevents growth in the complex of human activities concerned with the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.

Does your mouth have the ability to write checks your ass can’t cash? Are you broke? Maybe Something in between?

Let’s carry on, shall we?


A simple chronology of recent events …

On Wednesday, July 13, 2011, the establishment’s current champion (the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama) apparently realized it was possible he might not be showered with laurels for ‘leading from behind’ – and therefore threw a temper tantrum. This childish display effectively ended any possibility for a bi-partisan “deal.”  When is the last time a two-year-old achieved a bi-partisan understanding with this behavior?  Not recently, I'll wager.

On Friday July 15, 2011 - switching gears to campaign mode - BHO gave his third press conference in one week’s time pushing to write checks our asses can’t check. The presser was predictably devoid of leadership from the Empty Suit, predictably devoid of useful ideas from the Empty Suit, predictably devoid of fully baked plans from the Empty Suit, and predictably full of sycophantic fawning from the propaganda apparatchiks comprising the MSM.  Upon reading the transcript, I considered writing the third volume in the E2E (English-To-English Translation) series.  But it felt more fundamental than that.

Beginning July 13, I took the extraordinary measure of aggressively commenting on several sites to highlight the best idea I have heard yet for dealing with the Empty Suit’s Progressive intransigence.  It is the idea given to me as a product of listening to Mark Levin's July 13 radio show.

These comments took various forms and edits on the following:
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 of sending half the burea-weenie army home for a month. The House GOP could even take the rest of July off to counter DemoHack lies full time.
Repeat monthly until Barry the Temper-Tantrum-Toddler-In-Chief shows us “his bluff” – which will probably be impeachable.

I haven't taken this extraordinary measure since I bombarded comment boards with advice leading up to the party line vote on ObamaCare ensuring BHO and the Progressives completely own socialized medicine in America.

Then - on Sunday, July 17, the great conservative thinker George Will fell ass-backwards into formulating the moment that is this moment. Mr. Will is generally good, which made him a fine candidate to be the one who would be better lucky than good on this particular Sunday.


And so I sit here, exhausted (in a good way) from a good day at the day job. And I have this advice for the GOP … DO NOT CAPITULATE. The Empty Suit and the Progressive machine that props him up has zero (repeat, ZERO) intention of halting the debt spiral. *DO NOT* get behind any defeatist plans to (essentially) unconditionally raise the debt ceiling (such as McConnell’s ‘Munich Treaty’). Cut, Cap, and Balance is a nice rhetorical statement. By next week it will be DOA – killed by the DC establishment. At that point, I advise you to listen to Mark Levin’s counsel.



In keeping with the tone and tenor of Part 18 … presenting the raw the notes I’ve been accumulating over the past week or so watching this moment leaven …

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.

Contemporary Politics and Newton's Three Laws (Part 17)

Bright lines are being drawn all across the republic this summer. Brittle lines - the kind that hold megatons of potential energy just waiting to be released into the flow of history. Divisive, emotional, lines that will deliver profound consequences to the people standing on both sides of those lines when they finally snap. The kind of lines that the DemoHack party has become villainously expert at drawing – as the Backyard Conservative eloquently observed recently.
The president took his opening salvo, starting his campaign a year early, demonizing yet another group of Americans. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) calls him out on the Senate floor as engaging in behavior more akin to that of a third world leader.


The National Debt, It is Accumulatin’

Do you think Greece looks like a good vacation spot this summer?

Here is a little video brochure.

This anarchy and chaos is the product of a cradle-to-grave socialist gub’ment running out of other people’s money. The cradle-to-grave socialists (aka rioters) in Greece aren’t very happy about this development, as you can see.

If you agree with these peevish and contemptible dependents of the state, then you must be that one person who is still answering ‘Right Track’ on the American ‘Right Track, Wrong Track Poll.’ And that makes you the person who will be responsible for turning the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave into one giant mob of whiny state dependents unable to process the consequences of running out of other people’s money.

If, on the other hand, you understand the national debt is growing at an outrageous rate due to a gub’ment spending addiction, not a gub’ment revenue problem – then you have the opportunity to take civic action right now – by sending a message to the politicians debating the conditions for raising the gub’ments credit card. Here or Here.


The Tenth Amendment, She is a-Risin’

Do you really want the minutia of your daily life regulated by a small number of ruling elites bumbling about in the District of Columbia?

The Tenth Amendment states:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Since the dawn of the American Progressive movement in the late 19th century, statists have been steadily chipping away at the federalist system of de-centralized power the 10th Amendment was intended to protect. Direct levy of income taxes (amendment 16), popular election of Senators (amendment 17), and the alphabet soup of gub’ment agencies that seem to exist in perpetuity once created – brought to you by FDR’s New Deal, LBJ’s Great Society, and various other Progressive meddlers and do-gooders who have been experimenting with the Founding since Woodrow Wilson came to DC. Prohibition of alcohol (Amendment 18), repealed shortly thereafter by Amendment 21, was probably the most foolish overreach on record (so far) for the Progressives.

The steady march toward centralized national power has now reached a point of absurdity that must be resisted, lest the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave be reduced to a wandering mass of drones looking to DC for every little direction.

The good news is, lately, so-called “states’ rights” seems to be making something of a comeback.  The Supreme Court ruled Arizona can require employers under its jurisdiction to use all available tools to verify the citizenship of employees, against the objections of Eric “My People” Holder’s Department of “Just Us.” This is a blow to the not-so-secret DemoHack 2012 re-election strategy having the code name ‘Project Undocumented Democrats.’ The voting bloc known as 'Undocumented Democrats' is under increasing pressure in Alabama and Georgia, as well.

But the leading light guiding the new rise of the Tenth Amendment seems to be the state of Texas, guided by the firm federalist hand of Governor Rick Perry. Under Governor Perry’s leadership, Texas now has a future as the world’s leading incandescent light bulb manufacturing titan.

Not to mention, the always reliable Cato Institute has a plan for other states to follow the path being blazed by Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, and Texas.

The Rules Made By the Ruling Elites, They Are a-Stinkin’

What do you think of the rules these Ruling Elites in DC have made so far?

So, if you are not convinced yet that vesting broad powers in a small ruling elite is a bad idea – well, let’s look at the record, shall we?

How’s that ObamaCare working out for you, so far? I mean, that is, if you haven’t been one of the lucky few chosen by HHS to receive a waiver (in total violation of the 14th Amendment’s “equal protection clause, IMHO).

Are you an employer looking at rising costs? Or thinking about dropping coverage for your employees due to those costs? Are you an employee of an employer caught in this vice? I have a suggestion – get involved with the Repeal movement. And get involved with the solution to replace the ObamaCare monstrosity. The plan is to kick the DemoHacks completely out of power in 2012. A newly elected congress can pass the repeal in early June January 2013, and the new president can sign it on Inauguration day. It’s only 18 months away, folks.

How’s the economy under these Keynesian geniuses working out for you so far? These geniuses are actually planning to run on the ridiculous meme that the biggest, most expensive, Keynesian stimulus program ever rescued the economy! The very same crappy economy you are living in every day nearly three years on from its passage.

Barry’s so-called economic team doesn’t seem to have the stomach to argue in favor of these policies, as Turbo Tax Tim Geithner seems set to join fellow Progressive/ Keynesian architects of these policies such as Christina Romer, Peter Orzag, and Larry Summers in running for hills and away from the debate.

The republic sorely needs a replacement team to be elected in 2012 to free the greatest national economy ever from the malignant clutches of the DC leviathan.

The Southern Border, it is a-Boilin’

Do YOU want our southern border to turn into the Road Warrior movie?

Or, has it already? The border with Mexico has not only turned into an entry portal for Undocumented Democrats, but a convenient security gap for Jihadis as well. (Warning for humorless Lefties: the link provided is intentionally satire, so save your hyperventilating)

But, no worries, the Ruling Elites in DC have come up with a remedy. Under the code name Fast and Furious, Barack Hussein Obama’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has been selling armaments to the Mexican drug cartels. The clever devils. Some of us are wondering if this is the cover up that might lead to a premature departure for the Empty Suit Currently Occupying the Oval Office.

The Sharia, it is a-Creepin’

Do want to continue to live in a nation that is about freedom of speech, assembly, and religion for all citizens; or would you prefer to submit to Allah?

TCOTS explains what I mean regarding the stealth invasion now underway inside the borders of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

And who better that the blog actually named Creeping Sharia to sound Paul Revere’s modernized alarm.

Zilla of the Resistance lays out what that means – especially for you patriotic women. Expect Women’s suffrage (Amendment 19) to be the first thing repealed under sharia. Zilla also gives us a nice piece highlighting your ruling elites’ indifference to the First Amendment freedoms that stand between us and sharia.

Bottom line – Mohammed’s Murder Monkey Cult From Hell means to rule the world and everyone in it. Paraphrasing the Fram Oil Filter guy … we can deal with these nut jobs now, or deal with them later.

Confrontational Times, They Are a-Comin’

And now it’s a time for a-Choosin’

Lead, follow, or get out of the way. But be advised - The Progressive Left already has a 120 year old plan and they are not going anywhere.

We can only hope it stays this “civil.”

The problem is the Progressive Left has a history of not playing well with others. The solution is provided by the great Ann Coulter – that is, most of their drone “foot soldiers” have glass chins.

So, let’s make sure their current champion, the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama, is facing a different kind of crowd on the campaign trail in 2012. The future of the republic depends on it.

Updates 7/6/11

‘Fast and Furious’ just got a whole lot more interesting today. The Acting BATFE Director decides he’s not taking the fall for BHO and the Progressives. Chairman Issa informs AG Holder the hearings will continue until morale improves.

The link I chose to support the ObamaCare waiver discussion is somewhat dated. It lists a mere 729 waivers issued as of January 28, 2011. The updated count is more like 1400. HHS can’t be bothered to update its table on the Internet, however. Maybe HHS is confused by the Most Shameless Administration in American History being shamed into discontinuing the application process.

Update 7/10/11

The breaking news this hot and humid Sunday morning is very good. It seems the GOP establishment will be standing tall and firm on principle in the debt ceiling negotiations. If they get their two “take it or leave it” conditions – spending cuts exceeding the number of dollars the ceiling is raised, and not one red cent in additional taxes in this soft economy – it will be a very good deal for the republic given the irresponsible third world kleptocrats currently running the White House and Senate.

Also, the lunatic Left is likely to be driven into the streets, in spasmodic demonstrations of violence, if they are once again denied the opportunity to redistribute other people’s money. It’s going to happen eventually anyway, better now than later – same theory as ruthlessly ripping off a band aid.
