Even in the midst of a massive liberal rant some truth will spring forth.
Then it will be “contextualized” later (reinterpreted so it’s not outside of the liberal orthodoxy and the Thought Police don’t haul him away).
Dylan Ratigan, of MSNBC, went on a rant decrying Washington’s economic plans on Tuesday, castigating Democrats and Republicans alike as “reckless, irresponsible and stupid.”
On August 2, lawmakers agreed to raise the U.S.’s $14.3 trillion debt ceiling and slash $2.4 trillion in spending over the next 10 years. Since then, credit rating agency Standard & Poor has downgraded the U.S.’s long-held pristine AAA credit rating to AA+.
Conversation speculating that Standard & Poor’s decision was motivated by the fact that the deal covers less than the $4 trillion the company wanted the U.S. to cut misses the point, Ratigan said.
“Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, Republicans are not doing it, an entire integrated system, financial system, trading system, taxing system, that was created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now,” Ratigan said.
“I’m saying we’ve got a real problem…Republicans want to burn the place to the ground and Democrats who want to offer a plan that gets it through the next election, the end of the second term of their presidency and then screws me and my kids when it’s over,” he said.
“We’re sitting here arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan that kicks the can down the road for the president for 2017, or burn the place to the ground, both of which are reckless, irresponsible and stupid.”
The Democrats only want to get Obama re-elected then after 2016 who gives a crap!? Sounds about right.
While, I don’t think the Republican want to burn the place down, I’m not sure about some who would think it is necessarily bad considering the elite mentality that won the day on the debt deal that was a political solution not an economic one.
Further evidence of this, John Kerry, the Ketchup heiress’s husband and Mr “I voted for it before I voted against it” boat tax evader was named to the so-called Super Committee that will try and figure out how to weasel out of anymore cuts.
Though, they may come up with more cuts in growth like the Debt Deal which are fake cuts made to look real. Real lipstick on a pig time.
A BBC journalist has spoken to two girls that took part in Monday night’s riots in Croydon, who boasted that they were showing police and “the rich” that “we can do what we want”.
Audio of some rioters telling the reporter that the riots are “conservatives” fault, and that they are rioting to show the rich they can do what they want. This is what years of class-warfare/politics gets you… much like multiculturalism… it divides people and makes them think that they can never grasp at greatness by building and creating. Rather, it teaches people to destroy and to live off others.
When asked why they were attacking “their people” the locals, the little cherubs said they were business people and so they had to be rich…
Now flash back to the Wisconsin Unions in Madison…The guy being beaten in St. Louis by SEIU Union thugs…Tea Party “terrorists”….
Speaking of the SEIU…
A new Quinnipiac poll released today found that 67% of those surveyed felt that any deal to raise the debt ceiling should include tax hikes on the rich.
More voters considered (45%) Obama’s plan to raise revenue closing loopholes than they thought of it as a tax increase (37%), and Americans still haven’t forgotten about those tax hikes for the wealthy and corporations. Over 2/3 (67%) of those polled thought that the debt ceiling deal should include tax increases on the wealthy and corporations along with spending cuts.
Sound I mention Obama had no plan? He made speeches. That is not a plan.
But repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth and when you can repeat it 24/7/365 look out!!
But don’t worry, the Liberals won’t cause a meltdown for political “gain” by the stupid,uninformed, and the greedy here like they have in London. 😦
According to a new Quinnipiac poll, 54 percent of those surveyed say Bush is responsible for the “current condition” of the economy, compared to just 27 percent who blame Obama. Among self-described independent voters, a key 2012 voting bloc, the number shifts slightly: 49 percent point the finger at the former GOP president, while 24 percent blame Obama.
The former President is responsible for the 3rd straight Trillion Dollar yearly deficit and $4 trillion in additional debt!!
Nobody in the left-dominated media bothers to note that in the last years of the Bush presidency Democrats controlled the Congress and thus had a death grip on the nation’s economy, having complete control over the nation’s purse strings. They spent and spent and spent the yet-uncollected taxes of future generations — as well as our own — as if there were no tomorrow.
It wasn’t a Bush Congress that jammed the incredible costs of Obamacare down the throats of the American people and their children and grandchildren — it was our spendthrift president and his allies on Capitol Hill doing their classic imitation of the legendary drunken sailors on shore leave.
It’s simply common sense to understand that spending money one doesn’t have in the hopes that the future will provide the needed funds is something like believing that some beneficent tooth fairy will come up with the money in the future.
Now the president and the national Democrat party have suddenly discovered a scapegoat for the latest economic mess they have thrust upon the American people. They insist that the credit-rating downgrade was the fault of the tea party trying to control the nation’s purse strings. I’m not kidding. They really expect us to swallow this whopper as the gospel truth.
They expect us to ignore the fact that the millions of tea party members are simply Americans deeply and sincerely concerned about the nation’s economy and the tendency of the government to spend their hard-earned tax money on whatever scam strikes its fancy.
It’s time to place the blame for our economic malaise where it belongs — on the shoulders of the Obama administration and the Democrats in Congress.
Tea party members have been the voice of reason, not the wild-eyed terrorists portrayed by the left’s crazy spin doctors.
What would have averted the credit-rating downgrade and the subsequent turmoil in the markets? Precisely the spending cuts advocated by the tea party.
According to a statement by Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder and national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, the debt-ceiling compromise was full of “accounting tricks and minor ‘cuts’ to spending.” She warns that these so-called cuts do not reduce our national debt. They are simply cuts to future deficit spending.
Rather than prevent a crisis, the debt deal has “already cost us our AAA credit rating,” according to Martin.
In addition, she explains that the tea party was the only organization pushing for the passage of the Full Faith and Credit Act, which would remove the threat of a national default.
A couple of hundred years ago a band of American patriots demonstrated their contempt for a distant Parliament that imposed unjust taxation upon citizens, with no say in the matter, by dumping British-taxed tea in Boston Harbor. It was one of the acts of defiance that helped spark the American Revolution and created a new nation.
Unlike the Boston tea party, today’s today’s tea party membership is nationwide and composed of people from every nook and cranny in this vast nation, but they feel the same determination to display their anger at the depredations of an out-of-control national government that the Boston patriots showed toward a distant monarch who legend tells us could not speak a word of English, preferring instead his native German.
It’s past time for a little tea dumping of our own — the bitter tea brewed by Barack Obama. (Michael Reagan)
The government’s long-term projections, bad as they are, also are based on rosy scenarios for economic growth. If the Obamalaise continues, we could see debt-to-GDP ratios north of 120% — the stuff of banana republics.
But the media will have plenty of riots to create and cover.
After all, it’s not their fault. It’s the Rich, the Tea party, and Business! 😦
