It’s Friday morning, and so far today, the Obama administration has posted 165 new regulations and notifications on its reguations.gov website.
In the past 90 days, it has posted 6,125 regulations and notices – an average of 68 a day.
But question that and you’re obviously for “no regulations at all”. Extremism in the defense of socialism/liberalism/progressivism is no vice.
A leading Democratic senator has said her party should be willing to go off the fiscal cliff in order secure tax rises on the wealthy, raising the stakes in year-end budget negotiations.
“If the Republicans will not agree with that, we will reach a point at the end of this year where all the tax cuts expire and we’ll start over next year,” said Patty Murray, who was co-chair of last year’s deficit supercommittee, on ABC’s This Week. “And whatever we do will be a tax cut for whatever package we put together. That may be the way to get past this.”
Jump off the Fiscal cliff, blame it on the Republicans and then when you start to do something claim credit for tax “cuts” after the most massive increase in US history which you caused.
So you willingly kill the patient, then when you manage to save the patient from the massive gunshot wound to the head you claim credit for it! The patient will never be the same and maybe impaired for life, but who cares about that. It’s the political advantage and the sound-bites for the ignorant masses that matters.
And gee, I haven’t repeatedly said that they are completely amoral and the ideology matters more than people.
Political advantage, no matter how small, is all that matters.
Going off the cliff would have the political advantage of letting Congress vote for tax cuts, after they go up automatically at the end of the year, rather than voting for tax rises now.
They hold a gun to your head and say that you have to stop them blowing the American people heads off (which is you agree to their demands and that will do it anyways but you get the blame for it).
The New American Domestic Terrorist: The Democrat Party
But the people would have known that if they were paying attention and now that there was cliff there to begin with!
But likely they don’t and The Ministry of Truth sure as hell wasn’t going to tell them.
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
Bill Kristol, the influential editor of the conservative Weekly Standard, said that the party should consider taking the fiscal deal proposed by President Barack Obama.
“I don’t really understand why Republicans don’t take Obama’s offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000, make it $500,000, make it $1m,” said Mr Kristol on Fox News Sunday. “Really? The Republican party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood?”
Cover from conservatives such as Mr Kristol could make it easier for Republicans in Congress to do a deal. “Let’s have a serious debate,” said Mr Kristol. “Don’t scream and yell if one person says ‘You know what? It won’t kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires.’ It really won’t, I don’t think.”
You have to play the Democrats game, or get played by the Ministry of Truth. So it’s worth considering.
The Democrats are all about tactic advantage. Do anything, say anything for advantage.
Truth and logic and reason as useless to them.
So you want to fight Terrorists? You may have to negotiate with these nutjobs.
