Now that the Carnival Triumph has safely docked in Mobile, we can turn our attention back to the more mundane matters. I mean, COME ON!…It was a media field day!…BUT, I digress…
Our so called ‘elected officials’…the Democrats, in particular, have continued their same old, tired “simply deny there’s a problem” approach to the fiscal insanity that is the Federal government. Credit card economics is their answer. But you have to ask yourself, “how can this continue?”….”How can we continue to spend more and more and more when there’s less and less coming in?” The math says you can’t. However, facts don’t matter…it’s the optics and the lies that do….
Let’s see what these morons are saying….
“We don’t have a spending problem….I’m getting tired of hearing you say that!”
During one of the seemingly countless budget crises, Speaker Boehner relayed Barack Obama’s reaction to his efforts to convince the President that we have a SERIOUS problem….
“We have to make a judgment about what — how do we get growth with jobs, that is where the real revenue comes from. You don’t get it by…cutting your education and cutting back on investments in science and National Institutes of Health, food safety, you name it. So, it isn’t as much a spending problem as it is a priorities — and that is what the budget is, setting priorities…So it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem, we have a budget deficit problem.”
The Queen of Denial, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) throws in her LESS than 2 cents worth of ill conceived mindlessness..Her answer: We need more money!
Does the country have a spending problem? The country has a paying-for problem. We haven’t paid for what we bought. We haven’t paid for the tax cuts, we haven’t paid for the wars…If we don’t pay, we shouldn’t buy..”
Economic nonsense from the illustrious idiot, Steny Hoyer (D-MD)…..I wonder if I could go buy more stuff that I can’t afford and excuse it by saying it’s because I haven’t paid for stuff I ALREADY bought?…
First of all, I want to disagree with those who say we have a spending problem. Everyone keeps saying we have a spending problem. And when they talk about that, it’s like there’s an assumption that somehow we as a nation are broke. We can’t afford these things any longer. We’re too broke to invest in education and housing and things like that. Well look at it this way, we’re the richest nation in the history of the world. We are now the richest nation in the world. We have the highest per capita income of any major nation. That kind of begs the question, doesn’t it? If we’re so rich, why are we so broke? Is it a spending problem? No.”
Iowa Sen., Tom Harkin (D), proving once again, what an imbecile he is…I suppose all you have to say is “I’m rich!…I can’t be broke!”…Problem solved!
“We are at the bone almost. And sequester that is across-the-board cuts will literally destroy us and put us in a recession. I don’t want to hear the fact that the president is divisive. The President is leading and he has led well. The American people are listening. When are our friends on the other side of the aisle going to listen? I want to challenge this body to be the kind of “Lincolness attitude.” As yesterday was the official birthday of President Lincoln, February 12, and although it was a tragic time in our history, I can assure you that it shows the greatest promise of America when people could come together and do something great. I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX)…clearly an embarrassment to that state…seems to think the President is “leading”…what she doesn’t say is WHERE!…Of course, typically, she has to throw in some racial component…
THESE idiots are in CONTROL!…THIS sort of thinking is deciding and shaping OUR future!…We are lied to day after day after day by those who cannot and will not approach what needs to be done with a serious and competent mind set…Their selfishness will bring economic ruin to this nation..one way or another…
Yet, we continue to place faith in them and power in their hands…It’s dispiriting, discouraging…and FRIGHTENING!
