Playing With Fire

Who remembers those halcyon days when being all “acrimonious” was the reactionary rage? Remember when it was cool to say such idiotic things like, “I voted for the war before I voted against it..” Those were the days.. Back when the liberals had control of BOTH Houses, as they began their progressive plans to dismantle and destroy America, a little known community organizer cast a vote.. A rare vote indeed as this snoozing Senator more often than not cast the intrepid vote “present”..

It was 2006 and Barack Hussein Obama decided to cast a vote AGAINST the raising of the debt ceiling. Mind you, this vote was taking place tens of trillions of Obama dollars ago at a time when a Republican was in the White House and the liberals held the majority in both Houses. Back then, being “acrimonious” was a sign of liberal patriotism. Shall we hearken back to Rodham’s Howard Dean imitation? “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration..” Things certainly are different now, aren’t they..

The Democratic dance of the demented begins anew as the latest White Louse Press Secretary is dancing as fast as he can.. Jay Carney, who actually makes me laugh harder than the comic genius Art Carney, said “he now believes it was a mistake..” (White House: Obama Vote Against Raising Debt Limit a ‘Mistake’ Fox News 04/11/2011) Carney was referring to the “acrimonious” Obama vote of 2006 AGAINST raising the debt ceiling.. Isn’t it just a stunning coincidence that rookie Senators like Obama seem to make “mistakes” with the same frequency as ROOKIE presidents like Obama..

“He (Carney) said Obama understands that Senators want to make it clear when they disagree with the administration but that there are other ways to go about doing it..” Now, go back and reread the Rodham quote.. What is good for the goose stepper, is also good for the gander.. It was perfectly acceptable for Obama to “make it clear when he disagrees with the administration” when he was a socialist senator, all bets are off now that he is the Democratic dictator.. Back in 2006, the rabbit clouts and the Bolshevik low blows were the leitmotiv, now that Obama wears the collectivist crown we must return post haste to the Marquis of Queensberry rules..

Now the progressive penny has dropped and Obama is all about “deficit reduction plans”. Obama should understand how to reduce the deficit since he is the one responsible for building these “historic” deficits..

According to Carney, Obama “will very clearly lay out his vision for deficit reduction.. The need for it to address the long-term drivers of our debt and for everyone to share in the burden of bringing our fiscal house in order..” What a Marxist mouthful..

First, Obama has never, nor will he ever, do ANYTHING “clearly”. Secondly, these “drivers” are Democratic “drivers” who drive as well as the Democratic dog paddler, Dead Ted.. Finally, who is surprised that now we ALL have to “share in the burden of bringing our fiscal house in order..” These are the liberals talking, so this “all” isn’t going to include any of the pet progressive projects and any of the liberal urchins, employed and unemployed, who rely on the government for their sustenance..

How can I say such a thing? Where is the proof that liberal “special interests” will be as immune from these “burdens” as the liberal “special interests” are immune (exempt) from the penalties (burdens) that everyone else will be paying relative to Obama Health Scare? “Obama took a moment to speak with a group of Colorado students touring the White House. He told the tour group that education will stay a priority for him in budget talks going forward..” Remember, “it’s all about the kids” but actually it’s all about the NEA and the fact that their pockets are always full of Democratic redistributed dollars.. I thought that EVERYONE was to “share in the burden of bringing our fiscal house in order..”

Carney, a colorful collectivist, “urged Republicans not to hold the debt limit vote ‘hostage’ in order to extract budgetary concessions..” “Hostage”.. Eeewww.. There is nothing short of taking hostages that would convince the liberals to STOP SPENDING, least of all the idea of “extracting budgetary concessions”.. It’s time to cut up the collectivist credit cards but there will be a Democratic scratch fight if anyone tries to take them away.. Besides, if someone took hostages while another Democrat was in the Slight House, they wouldn’t be released until the day the next Republican was taking the oath of office..

David Plouffe drew the short straw and he had to make the rounds on Sunday trying to waltz on the head of a progressive pin.. He “indicated that the White House is willing to put some reforms on the table..” Again, this is a liberal talking so understanding and listening to EVERY word is important.. “Reforms”.. You will note that he did NOT say “reductions’. He did NOT say “spending cuts”. He did NOT say “deficit reduction”. When the liberals start talking about things like “reforms” what they MEAN is the idea of “reforming” what the “rich” have to pay.. Their NEXT “reform” is to “reform” the “rich” into the “middle class” just like Clinton did with his ever changing “rich” that started at “$250,000 and ended up at $40,000..

Here are just a few more numbers in relation to the damage that Obama and the liberal Democrats have done. The “public debt” portion of the “historic” Obama deficit is increasing at the rate of $125 billion EVERY MONTH. The “projected fiscal 2011 deficit” (we all know that with Obama, he can top these estimated numbers with ease..) was $1.6 trillion. The “deal” last week managed to cut $38.5 billion. That is less than one week of Obama deficit spending.. One down, fifty-one more to go..

“Turbo” Timmy Geithner took out his collectivist Crayons and he scribbled a letter to the “Scary Socialist Skeleton” Harry Reid in which he said that “it would take an impossible amount of budgetary rearranging to halt that climb in the near-term..” The liberals have always been afraid of hard work, especially when it is the result of the liberal’s own political irresponsibility.. Since the “budgetary rearranging” appears “impossible”, the liberal answer is for Obama to keep spending more of what we know we don’t have any more of. The liberal answer is to keep borrowing until no one else on the planet will loan you any more and when you hit that wall, just start printing more..

Collectivist Carney did what all liberals do when someone wants to take away their Marxist marbles. They claim that if you do so, “catastrophe” will soon follow.. “Failure to lift the cap would be ‘Armageddon-like’ for the economy..” Carney isn’t alone in making these dire predictions. “Turbo” Tim Geithner in his letter to Reid said that not upping the Obama debt ceiling “risks a fiscal calamity potentially worse than the one from which the nation is recovering..” There is more, “the White House warns that voting against the debt ceiling increase would be ‘catastrophic’”.. Chuckie (Tumor) Schumer added, “it could be a formula for recession or worse.. So this is playing with fire..”

No kids, the “formula for recession” was brought to a boil when Obama was elected in 2008. Just to be “historic”, Obama decided to jet past the whole “recession” business and he went “kamikaze” right into his own Depression.. Allowing Obama to spend and spend and spend and spend is “playing with fire”.. The again, it’s not actually “playing with fire”, its trying to put out the fire that Obama has started by giving Obama more gasoline.. What could possibly go wrong there?

    Thanks as always,

  2. For the community orgainizer to claim that he now is willing to “put some reforms on the table.” Is like being kidnapped and tortured for the past three years and then the kidnapper decides to let you go and claims to the DA that he should not be brought up on charges because he saved your life. What a joke Geithner and Reid are they talk about “budgetary rearranging” they only thing these two are doing is rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
    We all know that the House of Rep. holds the purse strings and don’t you feel better knowing that Boehner is in charge? Five bucks says he will fold up like an accordion when it come to the debt ceiling. Think of it in these terms if we were to cut one billion a year from the budget it would take 140 years to erase the 14 trillion debt, and that’s interest free. With that said college football kicks off in only 145 days.

  3. The traitorous print media has white washed the chaos of obummer to an extent the country has been lulled to sleep again. I wish we could get those startling points from William into every news media available. And yes, Carney is being duped like everyone else. It is astounding how fast the deficit rose, and totally shocking how long it will take to pay off. Our poor children, our children’s children, and on and on. Somewhere there is a masive brick wall we are going to hit – it is only a matter of when?

  4. Sorry to double up. I just got this in my inbox and thought it very telling. LDS is the Mormons:

    Food, LDS Canneries Show Inflation Up 11pc to 49pc – 7 Apr 2011
    Kenneth Schortgen Jr.
    http://www.examiner.com/finance-examiner-in-national/prices-at-lds-canneries-show-inflation-for-food-up-between-11-and-49
    Prices at LDS canneries show inflation for food up between 11 and 49%
    Price inceases on April 4th at the LDS canneries show inflation up between 11 and 49% for many basic food staples. These rise in prices are a strong barometer for the overall economy since the LDS facilities are usually the last to raise prices for their communities, which provides food in bulk that they can collect through their vast networking operations.

    According to the new price list from April 4th, many food staples have increased by more than 20% since the last price list came out just 3 months ago on January 3rd.

    Beans. Black 13.69%
    Beans, Pinto 12.13%
    Beans, White 11.88%
    Milk, Non Fat Dry 25.00%
    Rice 38.99%
    Sugar 33.81%
    Wheat, Red/White 44.54%
    Apple Slices 24.53%
    Carrots 21.31%
    Macaroni 40.25%
    Oats, Quick 48.90%
    Oats, Regular 49.19%
    Onions 21.60%
    Potato Flakes 33.33%
    Spaghetti 38.99%
    Beans, Refried 27.72%
    Cocoa Mix 40.69%
    Flour 29.70%
    Fruit Drink Mix 26.20%

    LDS churches and organizations have long been at the forefront in preparedness for families and communities. As one of the wealthiest corporations in the world, their network of companies and church affiliations allow them access to cheaper food sources, and the capacity to store them for long periods of time through their canning facilities.

    As the government and Federal Reserve continues to tell the American people that inflation is low, and contained by their monetary policies, the real barometer of inflation in the economy comes from the grocers, markets, and institutions that deal with food sales and production, and must monitor prices daily as commodities continue to climb. (The Federal Reserve (Ben Bernanke) and the Federal Government (Obama and his administration) use “Core Inflation” to measure inflation in the US Economy. Does anyone realize that “CORE INFLATION” is basically the old Consumer Price Index with FOOD AND ENERGY REMOVED! Does anyone realize what this means and what is happening to us?! Does anyone feel like they are better off today than they were yesterday? Strap in folks! You haven’t seen anything yet. Inflation is just starting. Those who don’t remember what inflation was like in the 1970s will have an experience of a life time as Quantitative Easing 1, 2, and soon to be 3 show their effects on our economy!)

    The LDS’s raising food prices at their canneries by 11 to 49% in just three months (Those who have not stocked up their long term storage shelves should consider doing so soon!) should be a serious wakeup call to all Americans on the true inflationary conditions that exist in our economy, and that we need to constantly look outside government reports for the true data affecting our spending and finances.

    Please note that this website and author of the article are not LDS.

  5. William,

    Love your analogy.

    Socialist Stockholm Syndrome..

    Titanic? A good one as well..

    Like getting bumped to first class on the Hindenberg..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  6. Richard,

    Do you remember many months back, I discussed a phenominon known as “whiplash inflation” relative to the Obama economic IED’s.. Everybody thought that I was crazy..

    You’re right, its on the way and it has become a “silent killer”. With Obama and company, there is just so much to try to keep ahead of that things invariably slip by.

    Then the snake bites.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  7. Sounds like it is time to plant a garden ,stock up on staples, canned goods, and Mason jars, and mabe look into the LSD .
    The Cloward – Pliven plan seems to be working, judges are not doing their jobs, Libs are destroying the economy, Congress is putting on a ‘show’ by pretending to cut the budget,and the fraud in the WH is partying. At this rate, we will make the European socialist economies look successful !!
    How can so few cause so much damage ?

  8. Give Obama gasoline? I envision another Richard Pryor scenario except Obama with more than a “head full of heat.” I think this smoking socialist will go down in flames and our country will survive. We can do it.

  9. Congress = A group of men with no conscience. When we are all standing in food lines with our coupon books they will all slink out of Washington and retire on some island. Obama is getting his wish. He wants to take the U.S. down and the third world countries up and we are experiencing this in our lifetime. A lot of people know this, but few will admit it. We are in trouble.

  10. Anybody whom doesn’t think inflation is on the rise hasn’t walked into a grocery store lately. Every week prices keep going up, and when they don’t its because the manufacturers have downsized the package to maintain the shelf price. A half gallon of ice cream these days now is only 48 oz. Sixteen ounce cans of veggies are about 14.5 oz. now, and 8 oz. cups of yogurt, now are only 6 oz. Its only going to get worse folks.

    While we have to tighten our belts, since we’re living on beans and ramen (yeah, gone from 10 cents a pack to upwards of twenty in less than two years), our leaders tell us we have to share in the sacrifice, while they spend OUR money (a concept they fail to understand) like it was water. Ol’ Boehner seems to think his 38 billion dollars in cuts is a great and historical achievement, its only a spit in the bucket. Get one of us NLTZ posters up there on Capitol Hill and let us have a turn at the budget axe, and we could save this country trillions.

  11. G. Nichols,
    No kidding! Let’s see now what was that, “A Pledge To America”? Boehner and crew are doing a re-write of Omam-lama’s promises/lies. Should have been called “A Plagiarism Of America!”
    RICHARD’s comment on prices the damages are two-fold. While the increase in prices is bad enough food manufacturers have now began to reduce the volume of contents of the containers/packages (something most shoppers pay little attention to) while continuing to either charge the same or increased prices.

  12. It would seem that that Obama and the MSM are both touting that if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling to $14.3 dollars, the nation will default on it’s obligations. An absolute lie to my po’ ol’ country boy’s way of thinking and is nothing more than a scare tactic. It’s nothing more than just like consumer credit, if the debt ceiling is reached, this will simply mean the Treasury cannot issue new debt. The existing debt could still be refinanced, but interest owed on the debt would be paid out of revenue and the budget would also have to be balance immediatly. That is not a “default.”

    Obama needs to, both parties need to, quit lying to the American people. They can quit patting each other on the butts over what a good job they did in “cutting” a measley $30 some billion dollars of over trillions in spending.

    If Congress were a house of cards, it consist only of jokers.

  13. I wonder how many people know the difference between “debt” and “deficit”, ” budget” and “budget surplus “. Most probably don’t, which , of course makes it that much easier for the ‘lyin libs to sell their snake oil. Does anyone wonder why schools no longer teach “civics” , along with the importance of the Constitution?
    Knowledge is power, and the libs don’t want the populice to have any power.
    Hence, the problems that we are experiencing .

    Remember the Dictator mantra – keep ’em poor and stupid !!

  14. beyond disgusted

    JJ,
    You have so nailed it!

  15. On-The-Mark! as usual, Larry:

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks also to all who commented. Boehner can issue all the “excuses” he wishes, but the fact is that he had the ‘guns’ and CAVED! Where the h— is the common sense?? If you’re ‘over-the-top by spending hundreds of billions MORE than you did a couple of years ago, and you’re doing that EVERY YEAR, how the heck do you expect to keep up, much less reduce the spending? I just don’t get this nonsense! It’s the same as the price of oil… we have plenty here in the U.S. that we can extract, build refineries, and use, at far less than we pay for it from others, and we would create jobs and wealth HERE instead of financing those who would destroy us.
    COMMON SENSE, COMMON SENSE, COMMON SENSE!!!
