This is why the demcorats have been so resistive to cuts

Not because they think that these cuts will hurt anyone, well maybe their power and base, or because these cuts are bad for the American people or economy, but because it’s the government’s money anyway and they want more of it. From the start the left’s strategy has been to spend so ridiculously much money they don’t have, under whatever stupid excuse they could use to sell this idiotic plan to the people, that the only way to make up the difference was to force tax hikes on everyone. And if you doubt that’s the plan, just read the story.

President Barack Obama will lay out his plan for reducing the nation’s deficit Wednesday, belatedly entering a fight over the nation’s long-term financial future. But in addition to suggesting cuts—the current focus of debate—the White House looks set to aim its firepower on a more divisive topic: taxes. In a speech Wednesday, Mr. Obama will propose cuts to entitlement programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, and changes to Social Security, a discussion he has largely left to Democrats and Republicans in Congress. He also will call for tax increases for people making over $250,000 a year, a proposal contained in his 2012 budget, and changing parts of the tax code he thinks benefit the wealthy.

If the government confiscated all the money from the rich they could finance this charade for maybe a year. This is about the left’s plan to go after small businesses and people trying to get rich, and to thus force them to deal with whatever the powerbrokers want from them before they get the loopholes needed to stop paying the graft passed. As Obamacare and everything else in the last 2 years have proved, the left’s strategy is to straddle us all with as many ridiculous taxes or costs as they can, then give their friends and cash cows exceptions. The suckers pay morem, the ones connected to the left enhance the left’s power to avoid paying. This is more of the same in the works. The corruptocrats believe it’s their money, and they want it NOW!

The left is pretending to need hike taxes to “protect” the middle class. What a pile of shit. This is sure to force people to move their wealth into shelters and away from the grubby hands of the crooks in DC, but then again, the crooks are fine with that too. They are more interested in a large beholden class that depends on them for subsistence, than they are in actually fixing either the debt/deficit situation or the economy. With the left it is always about increasing its power and thus government, first, second, and always. Tax cuts and smaller government are anathema to them. Don’t buy this umpteenth attempt to screw us all over as anything but.

Liberals show their true colors

Anytime I here some leftoid demand civility and blames the right for inciting violence or being violent, I know that what we are seeing is plain old projection. Then we have the things that happen in the real world, you know the facts that one would use to make a case, that we can then look at. In the latest incidence someone shot out the windows at Washington, D.C. Republican office. Know how I know it was a lib?

Police say the vandalism occurred Tuesday night. All of the windows of the officer were damaged. The executive director of the Republican Committee says an air gun was probably used.

They didn’t even use a real gun. This stuff happens all the time, but the MSM chooses to ignore or downplay it. Fake stories about violent Tea Partiers or demcorats being attack get massive coverage. Of course, we know the accusations against the Tea Partiers are plain old bullshit when you actually look for who is committing the violence. In fact, the left even has pretend Tea Partiers to help them win elections. And when we discover that the attacks against demcorats are insider jobs done by libs hoping to gin up a leftoid’s dream story about conservative anger and violence, if we are lucky to get a correction, it is buried somewhere so the minimal amount of people see it.

Funniest part of this brief story?

Workers believe the shooting was politically related.

Ya think?

The left is pissed that their buddies in the MSM have not been able to spread their propaganda and convince people that the disasters their actions and ideology have straddled us with and are driving us towards in the not too distant future, are all actually not problematic or actually a good thing. The American people just shellacked them in the 2010 election. And more and more people are realizing that these fools are driving us off a cliff at warp speed as they continue to bungle anything and everything they do. Hope & Change has, in the biggest display of irony possible, really turned into most of us hopping we have some change left after these bozos get through ripping us all off. The left is seeing all those fantasies of socialism winning out and dominating the next 2 or 3 generations they bandied about after the 2008 election, go up in smoke in but a short 2 years of them having power. And it drives them bananas. Expect many more angry bb gun attacks. They mean business!

Booooiiinnnggg!

It is done. The donkeys lose their attempt to keep their biggest donor flush with tax payer cash. The winners? The tax payers of Wisconsin, and the people of every other state where we will soon see similar actions to curtail the massive debt the lavish benefits and pay for public union members are costing the tax payers as state governments realize they have to end the gravy train or face dire financial consequences, Not to mention pain at the ballet box from citizens that are pissed they are being robbed by demcorats and their big donor buddies. Even the public union members that now will have the option to not pay the unions the ridiculous dues are winners. Here is the biased AP language:

MADISON, Wis. (AP)—At least two dozen protesters spent the night just outside the Wisconsin state Assembly chamber in anticipation of a late Thursday morning vote on explosive union rights legislation that passed the Senate after Republicans outmaneuvered their missing Democratic counterparts and pushed through the bill.

The extraordinary turn of events late Wednesday set up Thursday’s perfunctory vote on the measure that would strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from most public workers. Once the bill passes the Assembly, it heads to Republican Gov. Scott Walker for his signature.

About time! It is pathetic how these crooks were able to hold the state hostage, cost it $165 million in extra expenditures that could only be balanced by removing 1500 from the pay rolls – and if unions so cared about their employees, they sure as hell wouldn’t be allowing this massive layoff if there was an alternative, but as we have repeatedly mentioned, this is about the union bosses making huge money while using elected demcorats to rob the state’s tax payers in return for big campaign contributions – and in general showed us that the left only wants civility if it shuts up the other side. And while this AP piece sure shows the angry biased left’s opinion, without emphasizing the fact that the state of Wisconsin was on its way to join other such liberal paradises run by the democrats and their public union buddies in massive deficit woes and then likely bankruptcy as what forced the governor’s hand, we have the following:

The bill had been stymied after all 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to pass it. Walker introduced it to plug a $137 million budget shortfall. The Senate requires a quorum of 20 to take up any measures that spend money. But a special committee of lawmakers from the Senate and Assembly voted late Wednesday afternoon to take all the spending measures out of the legislation and the Senate approved it minutes later, 18-1.

It is far more than a measly $137 billion, which only applies to this fiscal year, but is used to confound the issue and lead people to believe there is no fiscal problem. But those of us that don’t restrict our information to DNC talking points, know that next year that deficit jumps to some $3 trillion plus. Anyway, the cowardly demcorats ran away and spit in the face of the democratic process. Funny how liberals only seem to love democracy when it suits them, and otherwise they pine for government like that of China as we have often heard them comment when it doesn’t huh? This was done to buy time and allow the massive DNC propaganda apparatus to confound people with bullshit, so they could then make Walker back down. And that was, contrary to the lies that they are fighting for the rights of the middle class or the public union employees, specifically to prevent Walker from getting what he wanted so they could keep their union buddies flush in tax payer cash and in turn reap the huge campaign contributions this brings them. You can’t get lower than that IMO. Luckily Walker stood strong, and they found a way to pass this bill and stop the tax payers from making the union bosses and their democrat buddies rich. So it is no surprise that their defense of this practice was to say:

“Scott Walker and the Republicans’ ideological war on the middle class and working families is now indisputable,” Neuenfeldt said.

Yeah sure. You collectivists and your public union buddies are robbing the tax payers, and doubly so the union members that are forced to pay out a huge chunk of their paycheck to the unions to keep the bosses living large and donating large to demcorats, but the people waging warfare are those that want to end that? Heh! Bizzaro world. Even though you will not hear the MSM or DNC say so, the people won this one.

Some perspective about why the left is so incensed about Wisconsin

Like Al Pacchino’s character Tony Montana told Manolo when discussing the ladies: First you get the money, then you get the power, and then.. well you know what I mean. Here are the golden nuggets we all should eb aware of:

Union treasuries - filled by dues paid by union members - not only fund programs benefiting union members and their families. The money they collect also pays six-figure compensation packages for labor leaders and provides millions of dollars for Democratic causes and candidates. The Center for Public Integrity found compensation for leaders of the 10 largest unions ranged from $173,000 at the United Auto Workers to $618,000 at the Laborers’ International Union of North America, and almost $480,000 for the president of the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees. The latter is the target of GOP governors in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and Kansas.

The union reports, filed with the Department of Labor, list compensation for all union employees and officers. Salaries make up the biggest portion, but other benefits can include tens of thousands of dollars for meal allowances, mileage allowances and entertainment. Health care and pension contributions are not specifically addressed. The reports show that assets of the various labor unions run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, and payrolls rival midsize companies. Among the Top 10 unions, dozens of top officials have salary-and-benefit packages that rank them among the top percentage of income-earners in the country.

“What’s very clear to union leaders is the huge threat this poses for the organizations they have built,” said John C. McAdams, political science professor at Marquette University in Wisconsin. The standoff began when Gov. Scott Walker proposed deep cuts in state workers’ benefits to help close a projected $3.5 billion deficit in the state budget. Although unions have said they would agree to cuts in health insurance and retirement plans, Walker is pushing to curtail bargaining rights and make it harder to organize workers and collect dues.

The union bosses and these demcorats don’t really give two shits about the membership short of the fact that they can free load from them. Seriously, Walker might be doing these union members a solid when he makes it possible for them to stop being ripped off to the tune of $1100 a year each by these goons and their donkey buddies. These crooks are in bed. The unions rip off the members, then buy the donkeys and the elctions that let the donkeys in turn shovel more money their way. At the expense of the rest of us, Seriously.

Gerald McEntee, president of the AFSCME, said Walker is retaliating for organized labor’s support of Democrats, in particular for the money given to his opponent in the 2010 election. In the 2010 elections in Wisconsin, AFSCME gave almost $83,888 to Democratic candidates. Half that amount went to the campaign of Tom Barrett, whose top 10 donors were unions. Barrett lost to Walker, who promised during the campaign to take on organized labor if elected.

“This is political payback, which does nothing to promote job growth or help the middle class,” McEntee said on The Huffington Post. “This is nothing less than union busting at its most transparent, designed to deny workers a voice in the workplace.” The membership of AFSCME, which evolved from a state employees union organized in Wisconsin in 1932, has grown by 25% over the last decade. McEntee, who has been president since 1981, says more than 145,000 government employees have joined AFSCME since 2006.

That’s a lot of loot these union bosses have managed to get with the help of the donkeys. Of course they are not going to give it up without a big fight. But unlike Tony Montana, these losers have no cajones and do not stand up and do the fighting: but instead used their stooges. The only fight the stooges had in them though was to run away. Bussed in goons, and MSM bullshit lies have not helped them out of their though spot. This shit is doomed and the longer it drags out the clearer it becomes to the people of Wisconsin, which see and foot the bill, that they are dealing with a bunch of petulant children. Public unions are a bad idea whose time to go away has come.

Shameless attempt to pretend they care…

Now that republicans are hell bent on cutting some measly $100 billion from our bloated federal annual budget - a budget that has jumped up drastically since democrats won the 2008 election by pretending to care about fiscal responsibility, a budget that has tacked on over $3 trillions of dollars in new debt in two short years, a budget that has massively increased the welfare nanny state, and finally it should be mentioned that it is a budget that along with the hostility towards American small businesses by the demcorats is the primary reason job creation has remained negative despite trillions in Keynesian pocket lining schemes by these crooks - the democrats threatening to shut down government if the republicans do not back off, and are now suddenly pretending they care about jobs and making the ludicrous claim that cutting spending will cost jobs. Klein, whom never fails to show how stupid he is, is parroting the new DNC talking points about how these “massive” cuts are going to hammer existing jobs - cushy public sector jobs that produce squat if at all true - as are Pelosi and Reid.

Funny how these bastards suddenly have a concern for jobs, when they seemed totally immune to the economic damage and the massive job hit the previous policies – from the stimulus patronage spending to massive tax dollars funneled to donkey friendly business to the government healthcare takeover – they rammed down our throats would have, huh? When they were hard at work destroying our economy they seemed totally immune to the massive evidence their actions were brutally destructive economy & job killers, but suddenly care now that they stand to lose power and see the damage they inflicted on the tax payers reversed? Yeah, sure. Of course, I should point out that their sudden concern is probably because these cuts, if they do have any impact on jobs whatsoever, might impact the bloated government public sector jobs, and as the current battle in Wisconsin is showing us, these are practically always union jobs, which means, their loss will impact the massive donkey-union campaign coffer contribution schemes the demcorats so depend on. So maybe the concern isn’t so much feigned as much as it is selfish. These scumbags didn’t much care when regular Americans were screwed by their actions, but they sure do when something threatens their power and cash flow. Heck, they are so desperate, that they are even playing the race card! I am not sure what’s worse, because all are shitty reasons and shaft the American people.

What is unavoidable is that the last 4 years of donkey control of the spending purse, and doubly so the last 2 years of absolute donkey control of the executive and legislative branches to set policy, have produced nothing but negative results. We have had 2 full years of the job market “unexpectedly” being negative, while the MSM pretends this isn’t so bad. Of course when we had less than 4.5% unemployment and the economy was booming but the guy in the WH had an (R) next to his name, things were dire and bad. Double heh! The left has to lose this fight if America wants to avoid becoming a banana republic, third rate big government socialist state, has-been great nation, where the collectivists pick whom wins and who loses. Don’t buy their sudden concern with jobs. Like all other things about them, it is phony as can be.

Donkey union protection racket backfires

So the Wisconsin demcorats that fled across the border into neighboring Illinois in an obvious slap to the tax payers of Wisconsin and the recent elections in order to cockblock and avoid a vote that would they are going to lose but which would hurt one of their biggest donor-special interest constituencies, are set to cost the tax payers of Wisconsin an additional $165 million in interest payments if they do not come back and vote on a bill to refinance the state’s debt. Funny how democracy to the left only is worthy when they and their ideas win out, and any elections that repudiate their wants and wishes results in all forms of anti-democratic shenanigans and not just vitriol about their oppositions motives, but comparisons to the most undemocratic people they can come up with. Although never Lenin, Stalin, or Mao, though, huh?

These senate demcocrats say they fled the state to slow down the governor’s evil scheme of denying working class people their due protection from “Da Man”, all so the American people could have enough time to learn about the evil budget repair bill. The massive union machine, the DNC, and if you believe the facts and not the attempt to distance itself once the poll numbers showed the unpopularity of this move, even the WH, set their grand counter scheme in motion, and if we grant the donkeys that their flight was truly intended to just buy time for people to see how evil Walker and his plan was, they have been successful. Unfortunately though, the public at large has not been swayed by their bullshit, and in fact holds a very negative opinion of the democrat’s flight to avoid their responsibility in addition to siding with Walker on the issue of public unions putting way too large a burden on the Wisconsin tax payers.

In short, this stunt backfired. The unions were unable to gin up popular support, even with massive help from the MSM, and it is obvious Walker will win this fight. But the demcorats are going to make sure that the people of Wisconsin pay for daring to stand against them and their special interests and continue to drag this out hoping eventually the cost is just too high. Heh! Promises of massive turnout over the weekend to show solidarity, even though heavily coordinated, with lots of busses to get their masses out, fizzled out. The turnout numbers outside of Madison were pathetic at best and no attempt by the MSM to pretend otherwise will convince anyone that these people are anything but elitists children throwing a tantrum now that their parents have told them the good old days are over.

And they wonder why more and more people have come to realize, after acts of blackmail like this one, with heavy costs to the tax payers, why the concept of public unions and their hold on government cronies like them, has reached its tolerable zenith and have to come to and end. The battle ground has changed. The days where the MSM parroting DNC talking point allowed these crooks to easily sway public opinion in their favor, no matter how idiotic what they were doing was, are no longer here. The economy is in shambles because of the statists and the costs of their ideas, and the real people are rebelling against being told they have to sacrifice more so this protected class can live better than they do. We are fed up and we are not going to back down, and America in general will be better off for it.

If you want to increase per capita income, raise taxes! - Really?

The other day I had a post about a battle between the republican governor of NJ, Chris Christy, and the new democrat governor of CT, Dan Malloy, going at it about taxes - NJ is cutting taxes and shrinking the burden government is putting on the productive sector, while CT is basically going with the donkey’s established approach which has caused government to expand and become the bloated unwieldy behemoth strangling the productive by hiking taxes - which you can find here, and our resident pooh flinging lib in the comments ended up the following ridiculous claim:

Narcissistic hubris, or what?

There really is no shame:

When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked. “I have some friendly amendments,” said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee.

“You think I’m kidding,” Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother. First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was “why she went to Congress.” Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her “accomplishments for equality,” mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in December.

Pad that résumé Nancy! Meaningless bullshit tripe all of it, but she is so full of herself she can’t even just show up and thank the DNC for trying to resurrect her corpse after the pasting she caused the donkeys to take in the last election. Come to think of it, this attitude is standard with the democrat leadership right now, starting at the top: a bunch of whiney pissants, full of themselves, with little good accomplished or to be accomplished, that think their destructive actions have done good. Pfeh to the lot of them.

You can not make this shit up…

Looks like the Obama team has another bad moment when they pull an epic fail telling us all not to ”look behind the curtain”:

Caught between their boss’ anti-lobbyist rhetoric and the reality of governing, President Barack Obama’s aides often steer meetings with lobbyists to a complex just off the White House grounds — and several of the lobbyists involved say they believe the choice of venue is no accident.

It allows the Obama administration to keep these lobbyist meetings shielded from public view — and out of Secret Service logs kept on visitors to the White House and later released to the public. “They’re doing it on the side. It’s better than nothing,” said immigration reform lobbyist Tamar Jacoby, who has attended meetings at the nearby Jackson Place complex and believes the undisclosed gatherings are better than none.

I am serious: you can’t make the shit that these scumbags are up to up. Even in your wildest conspiracy theories!

This is like the guy that promises to stop child rape and clean house basically hoping you don’t catch him molesting children in his shed and find out he is not just a scumbag, but a lying scumbag. Seriously, whom do you take more seriously? The guy that doesn’t lie about meeting with lobbyists or the scumbags that tell you they are above all that then go overboard pulling the wool over your eyes in an attempt to keep you from finding out they are doing it anyway?

Chris Christie schools the MSNBC “Morning Joe” crowd

And he does it by pointing out that the demcorat that the people of Connecticut just elected to be the governor, whom is raising our taxes all over the place while pretending he will get concessions from his party’s biggest & most powerful donor block - public employee unions - and telling us all it is so we all share the burden equally, is going to cost the state of Connecticut more jobs and not sharing the burden equally at all.

The left knows they have lost this battle

And the most obvious reason, other than the polls showing people are against these pampered union agitators that want the private sector employees to keep paying their lavish bennies and salaries for them while barely able to pay for their own, is the fact that the WH has decided to throw the DNC and the unions under the bus.

Administration officials said Sunday that the White House had done nothing to encourage the demonstrations in Wisconsin — nor was it doing so in Ohio, Florida and other states where new Republican governors are trying to make deep cuts to balance their budgets.

LOL! Yeah, right. The WH smells the charred remains of the “Crash & burn” collectivist cadre, and it is trying to save itself by pretending there is a distance between them. Nobody is buying that crap. And the longer this drags out, the better for the American people. People are seeing who the greedy SOBs are. And through the lies about how the left cares about people or the children. Americans are realizing these craven bastards really only care about their pockets and their ability to buy favors from democrats in return for massive donations.

This is basically the left’s power brokers finding themselves in the spotlight, and the American people realizing how bad they have been had. And the WH has seen the polls and is now looking to save face. Another one bites the dust.

As Wisconsin goes so does the union

I want to expound on Hal’s excellent piece dealing with the battle between the governor trying to balance his out of control budget and the unions whom want to keep their power and perks named the Wisconsin War, and in particular discuss an angle Hal mentions in his first update, and that’s the fact that not only is the DNC behind the protests, and it is now looking like the WH is also involved in coordinating this, but that this is a direct move by a political party to protect a specific voter block at the expense of both the American tax payer and the states. I have no doubt that if Walker fails to break the lock these public employee unions have to help deal with Wisconsin’s $3.6 billion budget shortfall that the state is going to be only the first of many to end up in even deeper trouble.

Wisconsin is going to have to borrow some money in the short term to cover their expenses. Who is going to loan them money if the donkeys and the WH succeed in blocking Wagner and breaking this ridiculous union lock on state expenditures when it is obvious the biggest problems - the massive and looming cost of paying for all the goodies for the unionized workers - in every state budget can not be dealt with? The repercussions if the unions win and prevent these changes from happening are going to be felt by all states, not just Wisconsin. And the economic burden/impact of this in Wisconsin will absolutely fall on those in the private sector, far beyond the 5000 layoffs that are being threatened in the public sector, as it will in every other state impacted by budget woes. And if they somehow are lucky enough to find someone to loan them money in Wisconsin if Wagner’s measure fails, the interest is going to be astronomical and the problems that causes likely to have bigger budget impacts down the road. That is, of course, unless in the end the federal government ends up bailing them out, and I am now starting to think that’s part and parcel of the democrat strategy here.

The collectivist simply do not care about reality and the fact that their personal greed and envy are currently setting us all on the road to disaster. What we have here is class warfare which pits the productive sector against the public sector, and the public sector is going to demand their unsustainable lifestyle be maintained down until the last working private sector worker is bled dry. The American people spoke in the last election. The left has either decided to ignore them or has heard them and doubled down on the stupid. In either case this is bad for us all.

Update: It looks like Wisconsin is but the first state to think they have to bust the public unions grip on their budgets to make progress, as lawmakers in Tennessee decide they have to do the same.

The WH Economists will not testify on Stimulus

So what’s new? That bull will cost us tax payers over $1 trillion and in general only helped demcorat constituencies, lobbyists, operatives, and campaign coffers, to name a few, so it is no surprise that the WH wants to stay away from this hearing.

Republicans say that they plan to use the hearing to examine the effects of the stimulus plan on the economy “and how its results compare to projections made by administration officials.” GOP staff said that they didn’t think that witnesses from individual federal departments would be able to answer these questions.

Evil bastarges! They want that boondoggle to actually have a positive effect? Who the hell do they think they are? Maybe someone should remind them they should have had the same enthusiasm when they held all 3 branches, and America wouldn’t have president Obama and his agenda to turn us into a banana republic today. Pfeh. At least they are exposing the drunken binge the donkeys have been on since they told us the age of conservatism was dead and progressivism would create utopia on earth after the 2008 elections. They sure are setting a record pace in their efforts to create a Soviet style utopia it feels like. Why do I feel that they will continue to ignore reality and pretend this theft of tax payer money thing they told us would save America was a good idea too, huh?

More about the faux painful budget.

A dose of reality about how painful those cuts in the Obama budgets are. And a dose of reality for the idiots that can’t see the fact that while our spending during the Bush years was bad, the Obama years are looking disastrous:

image

Let those numbers sink in. Our GDP is somewhat over $14 trillion, as is our debt, BTW. Republicans in the House better kill this budget ASAP and tell Obama to start over, with 2007 numbers, or else. Why?

Consider: President Barack Obama’s 2012 budget proposes to spend $3.48 trillion on everything except interest on the national debt. That’s a 7 percent increase over what the government spent in 2010. And keep in mind that in 2010, there was a lot of stimulus money flying out the door.

That’s not a cut. That’s growing an already bloated government by 7%. Screw that.

Update: Some more reality:

This was supposed to be the moment we were all waiting for. After three years of historic deficits that have added almost $4.5 trillion to the national debt, President Obama was finally going to get serious about fiscal discipline. Instead, what landed on Congress’s doorstep on Monday was a White House budget that increases deficits above the spending baseline for the next two years. Hosni Mubarak was more in touch with reality last Thursday night.

The White House actually touts as tight-fisted a budget proposing a record $1.645 trillion deficit for fiscal 2011, due largely to a new surge in spending to 25.3% of GDP. That’s more spending than in any year since 1945. Federal debt held by the public—the kind we have to pay back—will rise to 75.1% in 2012, which is the highest since 1951 and more than double what it was as recently as 2007. (See the nearby chart.)

Its a giant F-U to the American people. Nothing less.

Budget battles are a looming

The president is going to unveil the new budget today, a $3.7 trillion dollar doozy that’s just going to compound the fact that we have a $1.65 trillion dollar hole in this years budget, and tack even more to our already ridiculous and out of control debt. And the problems are just starting: it’s going to get much worse. Of course Obama will come out and tell us that he has reduced the current budget and the projected ones over the next decade to save us a stunning $ 1.1 trillion dollars. This is bullshit and such an insult that it beggars the question if he thinks that since the MSM will not point out yet another crooked numbers scam, that the people can not see through the smoke & mirrors.

First off, that $ 1.1 trillion saved over the next decade isn’t any kind of savings at all. It’s fake. They are calling a cut in massive deficit spending a savings. We will still be tacking a trillion plus each year of that decade to the debt in deficit spending. This is akin to the guy that’s making $ 1,000 every week but planning on spending $2,750 each week telling you he has a financial plan to save himself from the looming abyss by cutting his weekly outlays from $2,750 to $2,650 and thus saving a massive $1,000 in the next ten weeks. Look at that sacrifice: don’t look at the $16,500 in new debt! Now multiply this by a few million to get the scope of what these idiots are doing to us. We are broke you morons!

Don’t worry, these crooks will tell you that what we need isn’t government to stop spending, but to tax the evil and undeserving rich! The fact is that even if government confiscated all the wealth from the rich we would still come up short at the end of this decade, even worse; we would be up the creek after that, because our economy would likely be as vibrant and effective as that of Cuba or North Korea. Get ready for all of us to be battered by new confiscatory taxes. Demcorats do not intend to let anyone roll back government spending to anything close to what it was before Obama tacked over a trillion in new welfare state spending to grow government and pretended it was a stimulus. If they do so, their constituency is going to get hammered. So instead those of us in the real world will foot the bill for the big government these elitist scum so dearly love.
