In case you haven’t heard, the country of Greece is undergoing a bit of an “economic crisis”. “Greece has lived for years beyond its means, borrowing money and spilling red ink to finance excessive government spending, offer socialized health care and provide lavish wages to federal workers..” (“Greece Debt Crisis Coming to a Neighborhood Near You?” Fox News) Are we sure that we are talking about Greece here and NOT the United Statists of Obama? The Obama imitation of Greece’s economic death spiral just happens to be the sincerest form of flattery..
Here are just a few of the hard numbers. Greece’s public debt is 113 percent of its GDP. Their debt is $388 billion, which is bigger than its $356 billion economy.. Even without the amazing cerebral capacity of your average liberal, anyone can see that this is a recipe for an economic disaster.. Scratch that, the average liberal doesn’t seem to understand this equation and the average liberal in the Slight House certainly doesn’t seem to get it either..
As of this moment, America is in debt to the tune of about $12 trillion dollars which breaks down to about 80 percent of our $13.3 trillion economy.. As you read that last sentence, Obama added another billion to the debt equation.. Close counts in horseshoes and hand grenades and I am advising all to duck and cover, as this Obama economic grenade empowered by the tax and spend and spend and spend liberalism that has invaded Washington will be going off sooner rather than later unless capitalism is allowed to return and to flourish unimpeded..
In case you might have thought that our liberal government was simply having trouble putting the pin back into their grenade, think again. They have giddily tossed the pin and they are still hanging on to the grenade “hoping” that it won’t go off.. Inexperience seems to be “paying off” in spades..
America tallied an impressive “$82.69 billion dollar deficit in April, nearly four times the $20.91 billion shortfall registered in April of 2009.” (“U.S. posts 19th straight monthly budget deficit” Reuters) This turned out to be TWICE the size of the deficit predicted by Wall Street economists. When Obama’s brown shirts can fool trained economic professionals to that degree, it isn’t by mere accident..
“Outlays during April rose to $327.96 billion from $218.75 billion in March and were up from $287.11 billion in April 2009..” What could possibly go wrong with this Swiss watch of an “economic” plan?
How about some good news for a “change”? “The cumulative budget deficit totals $799.68 billion, down slightly from $802.3 billion in the comparable period of fiscal 2009..” I certainly feel two billion dollars better already, don’t you? “For the first seven months of the fiscal year, outlays fell to $1.99 trillion from $2.06 trillion in the comparable period of fiscal 2009..” As well, “2009 taxes fell to $107.31 billion from $137.67 billion in April 2009”.. The Devil is in the Democratic details..
Why all of this “good” news? Because the reasons behind this alleged “good” news aren’t so good.. Even though they are trying to beat the band, Obama can’t make up for that April tax shortfall from last year when he has personally overseen the destruction of tens of millions of jobs here in America during that time.. There are tens of millions FEWER taxpayers who aren’t paying the taxes that they used to pay due the concentrated efforts of the Obama oligarchs. The fact that the “shortfall” amounts to $30 billion means that Obama just isn’t as good at clubbing and cajoling the few left employed here in what was once America as he imagines himself to be..
Never fear for Congress is focusing their rapt attentions on a problem that should rectify all of these budgetary concerns. Straight from those that thought that giving a “tax break” to those who placed “environmentally proper” windows on their homes would be the “cure-all” for the damaged and decimated Obama economy, their next concern is.. Brace yourselves.. “Potty Parity”..
The House Oversight and Governmental Reform Committee is concerned about “the unequal number of restroom facilities for women in federal buildings..” (“Congress Seeks to Expand Access to Women’s Restrooms in Federal Buildings” Fox News) They want “at least a 1-to-1 ratio for toilets, including urinals..” Liberal math: Five toilets plus five urinals equals (it’s ALWAYS about “equals” with the liberals..) ten toilets for the gals! Even though there may only be space for six toilets, so what? Break down the wall and spend some more of the taxpayer’s dollars as “fairness” dictates (Obama action word..) that this “problem” be rectified immediately.. “Long restroom lines are at risk of health issues including abdominal pain, cystitus and other urinary tract infections..” Since Obama has socialized medicine, the choice for women will go from waiting in lines for a restroom break to waiting in the lines at the nation’s emergency rooms because they waited in a line to use the restroom.. That seems like a “no-brainer” for the liberal legislators, all systems go..
Represntative Steve Cohen (L-TN) said, “they made jokes” about this important legislation. He never identified who or whom this callous “they” were, so it was probably some evil Republican or some out-of-sorts Tea Party member.. “It’s also politically very popular..” Unlike the AMNESTY for ILLEGALS idea that was prompted by the proactive measures taken in Arizona, the health scare scam, the incessant takeovers and bailouts, “potty parity” affords the liberals a chance for a “win” without their traditional collectivist collateral damage and socialist shrapnel.. “It’s the right thing to do”.. When the liberals get around to justifying their chicanery upon moral grounds, that is all the motivation that they need to proceed..
Edolphus Towns (L-NY) chimed in with “Today, women still lack equal access to restrooms, it’s simply unfair.. It’s time for that to change..” When there is “unfairness” afoot, “change” is always the liberal answer.. I find it interesting that this particular “change” has to do with toilets and that is exactly where all of Obama’s “change” belongs as well.. It is good to see that the House OVERSIGHT Committee has nothing better to do considering the fact that Obama and crew should be keeping them in steady work for the better part of a lifetime..
You may find this hard to believe but, “the Congressional Budget Office has not put a price tag on the legislation..” When the legislation involves the implementation of “fascist fairness”, the “progressive price tag” is absolutely irrelevant! Soon “potty parity” will be placed along side so many other of the liberal imaginary “causes” like global warming that need immediate attention in order to thwart catastrophe as opposed to the CREATION of JOBS or the end to the socialist tyranny that has been so successful at destroying them by the millions..
As America emulates Greece and as the Congressional Oversight Committee counts squares of toilet paper in pursuit of “fairness”, that sound that you hear is Obama, our Zero, fiddling while Home burns..
