Made you look, didn’t I.. This is called a “distraction”, something meant to turn your attention away from something undesirable, something that the “deflector” doesn’t want you to notice. Now that I have your attention, be prepared for not “kick the can down the road” but “kick in the can all the way down the road”..
I don’t make this kind of case for myself that often but I absolutely nailed the entirety of this “debate debacle” from the get-go. The collective (or would that be the “collectivist”..) sigh of relief is just another of the put up jobs performed so poorly by the Inside the Beltway Bolsheviks. This IS “kick the can down the road” and here is what we have in store for us “down the road” a “road” paved by the liberals and all three of their “shovel ready jobs”..
Early this morning, the daily mail uk on line said that this “do nothing, look busy” business is laced with “increased taxes set out to cover for the White Houses reluctance to cut public spending..” “Public spending” is the Bolshevik black hole known as “entitlements”. Whenever the liberals have been wailing and puling about this “debt ceiling” of theirs, they have ALWAYS attached “Medicare” and the “seniors” to their overtures. The left’s overwhelming concern is Medicaid and all of the other handouts to the enslaved.
Make no mistake about it, the left’s (the “left” includes BOTH the liberal tin horn politicians and the “impartial” media..) constant refrains of the Republicans being “at fault” for the OBAMA debt, the OBAMA deficits and the OBAMA depression paid off. The “polls” worked their magic and the Republicans backed down. This “can” was kicked well past the 2012 election, which was Obama’s ONLY goal coming into this “debate”. Obama has temporarily taken this albatross from his neck, which gives him more time when the ODDD’s again rear their ugly heads to AGAIN lay blame for HIS problems at the door of the docile Republicans.
Everyone: this has accomplished NOTHING. All of the liberal patented “fuzzy math” will account for all of these so-called “spending cuts”. According to the breakdown by the uk on line, “The caps would have a greater impact in later years..” This means that NOW, Obama can continue to redistribute revenues to the lowest of the low in return for their votes and in “later years” when someone else is trying to fix the mess that they will have legitimately “inherited from someone else”, their inability to do so will be painted by the left as “hateful to seniors”, etc, etc..
“Some $350 billion of the $917 billion total (cuts) will come from defense and other security programs..” If Obama keeps this up, how will he be able to start any more of his “shadow wars” with countries like Libya and that ridiculous wrinkled moron in sunglasses, Qaddafi? (By the by, Syria, where ACTUAL genocide is taking place, is completely off of both Obama’s and his Secretary of Statists radar screens..)
“Automatic spending cuts would kick in if Congress does not observe the caps in coming years..” There is that pesky “coming years” thing again.. Once the smoke clears, one can bet that these mandatory caps will be “coming” AFTER 2012..
Now we will have a “12 member congressional committee” that is going to allegedly be “bipartisan”, who will be tasked with “finding a further $1.5 trillion in budget savings”.. I can save them the effort: if you are physically capable of working, if you are totally functional and ambulatory, you will receive NOTHING taken from those who have chosen to participate in capitalism. Sell your kidney on Ebay. How much did I just save the middle class?
“That committee could find savings from an overhaul of the tax code and restructuring benefit programs..” This is where the previously mentioned “fascist fuzzy math” will take center stage. These are the liberals, the ones completely confounded by the concept of paying THEIR OWN taxes, these are the scholars that gave us “jobs saved or created”, so doing a little collectivist cooking of the books won’t present any kind of a challenge for them..
Even more information about the direction that all of this nonsense is going towards can be found in Obama’s “victory speech” from late last night. He said that “this agreement will reduce the deficit and avoid default, a default that would have a devastating effect on our economy..” Wait, this WILL NOT reduce YOUR deficit and it may very well NOT avoid YOUR default because the whole thing IS your de-FAULT.. By the way, the default is there strictly because of the “devastating effect” of socialism applied to what was once the most vibrant economy on the planet..
He whined about the “lowest level of annual domestic spending since Eisenhower, but at a level that still allows us to make job creating investments in things like education and research..” Obama has made over 14,000,000 people unemployed. Fourteen million and counting. Obama even laughed about the lack of his “shovel ready”/non-existent jobs funded by the taxpayers and overseen through his Scamulous. When any liberal starts talking about “education” its more akin to “indoctrination” within the sewer that is the liberally dominated and destroyed public schools. Talk more about “research” as you ignore and mothball NASA..
Is Obama a socialist? “I believe that we have to ask the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share..” When the liberals are the self appointed arbiters of “fairness” the result is ALWAYS anything but.. The “CRASS separation” that fuels the feral anger of the liberals towards their betters can not be papered over or explained away as their efforts towards “equality” or “parity”. This is the clue to the middle class that all of these “revenues” (They’ve been called “back-door taxes” relative to this agreement. Since this is Obama, wouldn’t they be “black-door taxes”?) will be coming from YOU, not any “wealthy” persons or corporations. This is just the socialist sonnet sung to soothe the savage liberal beasts..
“This compromise does make a serious down payment on the deficit reduction..” Really? Wall Street went on a roller coaster ride today, finishing on the down side as it has nearly every dark day since the Bolshevik beginning of the Obama pogrom. If what Obama said was anywhere near true, the Dow would have soared.. Again, the reason for all of this is YOUR deficit spending and spending and spending..
“Most importantly, it will allow us to avoid default and end the crisis that Washington imposed on the rest of America..” Stop right there.. The forked-tongued fascist is at it again.. “..end the crisis Washington imposed on the rest of America..” This will FAR from “end the OBAMA crisis”.. Here Obama does NOT take credit for his “historic” actions, actions that are responsible for this “mess”. No, he blames “Washington”.. Here he seeks to lump the Republicans in with him, Republicans who have had the House for less time than it takes Michael Moore to clear a smorgasbord.. Remember the liberal motto: “if I say it, it is so”..
Here is the icing on the collectivist cake. “It ensures that we will not face this same kind of crisis again in six months, or eight months, or twelve months..” THAT is ALL that concerned Obama, but this far from “ensures” that his DEBT, DEFICITS and DEPRESSION (could we add “Default”, making it the ODDDD?) won’t be a lively topic of conversation come November 2012.. Put it in a letter to Santa..
“We’re not done yet..” As long as there are middle class dollars to steal and spend, this is about the only truthful thing Obama has ever said..
