At Least Try

According to Politico, Congress is “poised to miss its April 15th deadline for finishing next year’s budget without even considering a draft in either chamber.” (“Congress sees no budget rush” 04/12/10) With that “Congressional Mulligan” as my outline, I am “poised” to miss the IRS’ “April 15th deadline” without considering filling out their ridiculous and repetitive forms.. I am a proud and un-hyphenated American citizen as opposed to one of our “Congressional Potentates”, how well do you think that that plan will work out for me?

Lost within the hubris and sarcasm of the liberal Congress missing an April 15th budgetary deadline, it isn’t difficult to figure out why this one will go by the boards. Congress and all of its lemmings and lackeys are too busy poking and probing the returns of ordinary citizens in order to bankroll any number of progressive programs and pogroms meant to penalize the productive. After all, Obama has a “scamulus” bill, a “health scare” bill and a “controversial” globaloney warming/climate change bill that are in dire need of the disposable and non-disposable income of the nation’s middle (and soon to be lower) class..

What’s the rush? Its only the BUDGET, it has been proven to not be one of the dozens of Obama “number one priorities” just like the concept of encouraging job production as opposed to destroying jobs within an economy that the liberals have intentionally decimated. Besides, according to the liberal lunatic Alcee Hastings “there ain’t no rules here, we make ‘em up as we go along”.. So with that as your totalitarian template and as proven by the “What me worry?” Obama “Scorched Earth Socialism”, the “rules” only apply to the VICTIMS of liberalism. Such malleability is only available and applicable to the Democrats and as “promised” by Obama, it is always done under the cover of “transparency”..

There is no hurry especially when the collateral damage surrounding the litany of liberal lunacy desperately needs the healing power/distraction technique of “time” relative to the impending mid term election or as Barney Frank will be calling it, “Our Wiberal Waterwoo”.. Even the alleged “pro life Democrat” and Obama water boy Bart Stupak has mysteriously decided to call it a career.. The liberals may “skip the budget process altogether this year” and why not when the CBO has already said that the Obama budget of 2011 “will generate nearly $10 trillion in cumulative budget deficits over the next 10 years”. For good measure they also say that Obama has created “a combined $9.75 trillion in deficits over the next decade” AND Obama’s “Debt will rise to 90% of GDP”! (CBO report: Debt will rise to 90% of GDP” Washington Times 03/27/10) With an impressive resume like that which is already on the table, how could the collectivist clown possibly top that?

This is “a way to avoid the unpleasantness of voting on spending, deficits and taxes in an election year.” Such “unpleasantness” hasn’t bothered the liberals until very recently and now such a concept BEFORE the midterm when nearly EVERY liberal in Congress is up for re-election has become the equivalent of a dose of Ipecac.. Obama, Pelosi (the original California Raisin) and Reid have demanded the “lock step” unity that they recently accused the Republicans of (See: Progressive Projection..) and the congressional underlings have quietly walked the progressive plank. Fear not, as there are any number of places within the sewers of Washington for all of these soon-to-be unemployed liberals to “hide” and Obama will ensure that the taxpayers involuntarily “reward” these totalitarian team players for their cooperation..

Regan Lachapelle, spokesweasel for Wrinkly Reid said that the budget “is on a list of things that are possible for this work period”. With the liberals it is hard to determine which is more frightening, what is “possible” or what is “probable”.. When it comes to “number one priorities”, the liberals have simply decided to invert the logical list and work from the bottom up. Therefore “jobs” and a “balanced budget” haven’t even crossed their confused kaleidoscopic minds as opposed to the imaginary stimulus’ plans, health scare mumbo-jumbo and any number of totalitarian takeovers..

“The practical consequences of failing to produce a federal budget for the next year are about the same as they are for a family that doesn’t set a plan for income and spending..” Really, isn’t that heartwarming.. Well, a “family” can’t just print money in its basement to cover itself but Obama Company can. If the “family” did that, they would be subject arrest as “counterfeiters”. The “family” can’t just DEMAND that other “families” pony up their hard-earned cash so that it can be lovingly redistributed to other “families” without their approval. The “family” can’t just “spend” because “an inconvenient truth” known as a BILL comes every month reminding them that if they don’t pay NOW, they will owe even more of what this company knows that they don’t have any of.. The “family” HAS to pay this, now or later. Unfortunately with Obama, ALL of our “families” will be paying for his negligence and stupidity for untold generations to come..

Congress doesn’t NEED a budget to tax and spend. The liberal Congress in place now stands as your outline for such blasphemy. In taking a look at the “Congressional Budget Act of 1974”, Title III covers the congressional steps for setting fiscal policy and this is NOT signed by the President. Here is the PROOF that the liberal missed when they try to blame Bush for the mess that a liberal Congress since 2006 has created which Obama has allegedly “inherited”.

The Federal Reserve Chairman said last week that “the government’s books must be put in order through tax increases or slashing spending for entitlement programs..” Being that at least 95% of the liberal voting base are the beneficiaries of these “entitlement programs”, which option do you think Obama and his caliphate will be leaning towards? Besides, when you have turned welfare into an “entitlement”, it becomes a “right” and when it becomes a “right”, the government HAS to be involved in its implementation..

“In the House, rank-and-file lawmakers are showing signs of political fatigue from a series of difficult votes, including enactment of the stimulus and health care laws and passage of a controversial climate change bill last year..” I wouldn’t necessarily call it “political fatigue”, I would say that the cyanide that the liberal “leadership” forced upon the “lock step liberal rank-and-file” was more of a time delayed or time release formula..

“All of that raises this question: Why would Democratic leaders expose themselves and their rank and file to so much political risk?” That raises at least one question from me. When has the concept of the “political risk” for OTHER Democrats EVER been a concern for Obama and his administration? They have DEMANDED the “lock step” devotion to the “historic” heretic from Day One.. They may have believed that he could walk on water and when the “rank and file” stupidly attempted to follow him across the Potomac, it turned into the political equivalent of taking Ted Kennedy up on his generous offer for a ride home..

“Many Democrats believe they have a responsibility to at least try to put a budget in place.” Its good to see that they at least didn’t have the audacity (of hope) to describe it as a “moral” responsibility as the word “moral” is as ineffective when used by a liberal as either “patriotic” or “sanitary”.. Just as the mopey Obama himself said to CBS “News” a few days back, “I think that the vast majority of Americans know that we’re trying hard”.. (“Obama addresses harsh criticism” Politico 04/02/10) I can certainly guarantee you that the WORLD would be a much better place if you and your mindless minions would stop trying altogether..

    Vote early and vote often..

  3. Larry,
    If you were not before I can plainly see you are really “pissed off” with congress and the Obama administration. LOL – Love the ride home with dead Ted. Remember he who laughs at a “fart” is a fool. Keep up the great word smithing. Kurt

  4. What a surprise. When the feds set themselves a deadline they always choose to move the goalposts back. Imagine what would happen if we chose to forget our own April 15 deadline.

    History has shown us over and again that one of the signs of the end of a republic is when the politicians start raiding the treasury. Its not just happening here, its happening all over the world. If we don’t want to see this country go the way of Greece, we need to hold our leaders to account in November, and that starts with the primaries next month. We must defeat the Progressives at every turn.

    Larry,

    Not expecting you to recall, (from previous posts), my 4th rule of life is (What Goes Around, Comes Around).

    That said, there has never been a time in my life, that I’ve been more convinced that the MMM, (Mulatto Manager of Mendicants), is spiraling downward faster than “Little Boy” leaving the Enola Gay.

    Lest I continue, and, (perish the thought), some of your literary eloquence aspire me to your heights, suffice it to say, “our day is coming”.

    Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them.” –Thomas Jefferson

  6. I’m with all of you – P O’d. It is so discouraging to see the growth of the cancerous congress. I’m hoping the TEA Parties are a partial cure as I know there will always be those whom only know how to work the system to their own betterment in the life. However, the hereafter is going to be another story. And I can hardly wait for ‘our day’.

    I hope we all remember we can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. I keep reading about what candidates should do when they are interviewed then misquoted. I would set the rule that you are also taping the interview for clarification. That would spike the out of context writings and editorializing fog the msm is always trying to spin. When I go to the TEA Party Thursday, I will have my video camera running.

    Obama has tried his best to collapse our economy but it hasn’t been as easy as he figured. No they do not have to print money anymore, they do it all on computers. Just transfer $1,000,000,000.00 by punching a key. When he finally collapses our economy and the rioting starts, he will declare Marshall Law and confiscate all weapons.

    make 90,000 pay 13,000
    make 450,000 pay 120,000
    when those type of taxpayers cut back the well
    is getting emptier
    We must hang in and never forget come NOVEMBER VOTE ALL D’S OUT

  9. I’m going to try and paste something from Pravda, English edition. I guess you need to step back from the problem before you can see it!

    American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper

    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

    True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years… The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

    Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

    First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

    Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America .

    The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America ‘s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

    These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more than ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

    These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

    Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

    So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less than two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

    Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “free man” whimper.

    So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

    The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

    The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

  10. Richard,

    Thanks for posting that – any info. on the author ?

    If it were printed in every US newspaper, I wonder how many Americans would understand it, and how many would reject it, if they knew it came from Russia. I said ” IF”, since in reality, the liberal press wouldn’t print it !

  12. Congress will miss it’s deadline on passing a budget, “Awe, shucks. No big deal” they say. But let a business miss a filing deadline and they hit you interest and penalty.

  13. Richard,

    Thanks

  14. So madening to watch the nonsense.

  15. The exodus has begun – more members of Congress will resign, rather than suffer serious defeat in Nov.

    Seems they have FINALLY gotten the message !!

  16. Seen on the Internet today:

    “Dear IRS, would you please remove me from your mailing list?”

  17. Thanks again, and continually, Larry and ‘gang’.

    It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
