October 15, 2013

WASHINGTON — Racing the clock, the Senate’s Republican and Democrat leaders closed in on a deal Monday night to avoid an economy-menacing Treasury default and end the two-week partial government......

A "budget deal"? So the minions are told that we are now fiscally responsible? The minions celebrate the additional tax burden that the unresolved budget crisis creates(yes, it remains a crisis until someone mans-up and outlines how we are going to fund the Government's purchases).

The difference between the minions of today and indentured servants of times-gone-by is that in the past the indebted knew that they needed debt freedom while the minions of today celebrate their continued indebtedness.

Is it any wonder that so many citizens of this country are in debt over their heads; with government as their example, they have learned to spend money they will never earn by borrowing to buy stuff they don't need, to show the world how great they are.

What budget deal? Has the Senate and House agreed on a balanced Budget, or even a plan to get to a balanced budget, that this President will sign, or did the voters just get another Continuing Resolution so we can hear the same BS from the same bureaucrats again in January.

If the government's spending policies were practiced by a business in the private sector, they would have to file for bankruptcy protection to keep their creditors from carrying away the furniture, and the shareholders would send the officers down the road.

Gooseman “What planet are you on... looser... Buffoonery... ”

This is what you get from the left when they’re scared and desperate, without an actual point to make or fact to relate.

Now babble something about Bush to put the cherry on top of that desperation sundae, Goosy. LOL

What planet are you on?

The looser is a comedy act and is oblivious that 80% of the country laughs at her.

We fear her looks? Seriously? Intelligence is sexy. Buffoonery is NOT!

Sarah Palin makes liberals crazy because she is smart, capable, likeable, articulate, charismatic, and millions of Americans support her. Liberals just aren't used to those qualities in the politicians they support, and certainly not a woman politician. This confuses and frustrates them greatly, and it takes a hefty dose of lying, left-wing slander, and often a doob, to help a Palin-crazed liberal survive the very thought of her existence.

But fear and crazy are two different things. Her substance makes liberals crazy but they mostly fear her looks. Liberals are shallow that way. She's a stunner and no amount of media bias can change that. Sarah Palin's another conservative who's not going away, so you libs better see your docs and keep your meds current.

NBC “One of the country's three major credit rating agencies signaled Tuesday that it could downgrade the United States' rating, citing the impasse in Washington over raising the debt ceiling.”

Second time on YOUR watch, Barry “Bankrupter” Obama, Harry “No Compromise” Reid. And all you would have to do is sign any one of the debt ceiling bills the Republican-controlled House responsibly PASSED and sent to you. One of those bills gave you EVERYTHING you asked for, and even gave you the opportunity to show your support for Obamacare by giving up your own personal exemptions and subsidies to enroll in it like the rest of us.

When this Osaster goes down, history will remember Obama’s MOST famous words, “I WON’T NEGOTIATE.”

19th century concepts like Constitutional rights, limited Government powers, personal responsibility, privacy, the rule of law... right atoddh. Who needs those? Forward!

The problem: the right wing of the House wants to cling to 19th Century concepts. Obama wants to move into the 21st Century.

D.C.'s optimism is the working man's pessimism.

In truth, the nation is in shambles both morally and economically. If the nation's monthly revenue is barely enough to cover only the interest on the debt, what does that tell you? And the spenders in D.C. are optimistic? Optimistic about what? The entire bunch are living a lie, all the while hookwinking millions upon millions of people that Santa Claus is coming to town.

Gooseman “$arah Failin, the LOOSER, is giving us more comedy. Participates and takes over a Veterans rally”

So participating with veterans in a rally makes Palin a “looser” (sic). Where did the left’s patriotism go? Because I didn't see a single Democrit supporting those veterans at their rally. Thanks, Sarah. No thanks, Barry Benghazi, Harry “the war is lost” Reid. Pathetic support for veterans, Dems.

One wingnut shows up at a veterans’ rally waving a Confederate flag and Goosy thinks that means ALL veterans are Confederates. And she calls the VETERANS stupid. LOL

Oh wait, $arah Failin, the LOOSER, is giving us more comedy. Participates and takes over a Veterans rally where the US Marine Corps flag and Confederate flag are raised in front of the White House. Hey stupid, the US Marines fought on the side of the North in the Civil War,,,geez, BIMBOVILLE. Then the bimbo rails against people like herself who use Veterans for political purposes....so silly this looser is.

National Security is our number one priority.

LIibyan Al Qaeda terrorist Abu Anas al-Libi has arrived in New York to face terror charges after being interrogated for a week on a Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea, authorities said Monday.

Libi — who was grabbed in a daring daylight raid in Tripoli Oct. 5 by Delta Force raiders — is to be arraigned Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

The long-sought thug was indicted in Manhattan more than a decade ago on charges that he helped plan the bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998.

He assembled surveillance photos in Kenya that Osama Bin Laden used to orchestrate the bombing there that killed 200 people."

OH WAIT-Teabaggers threatening any dissenting moderate republicans and also teabaggers forcing a economic calamity on the US Govt and the other 80% of its citizens seems to have replaced National Security priorities.

Ragnar, "teabagger" is hilarious and no more childish than the silly insults that you and your minions hurl at those of us who dare disagree with you.

Pulpfictionalisthole, Obamacare is the biggest con job ever pulled on the American public. It dwarfs the Y2K scam and even the Global Warming/Climate Change CON job.

Barack Obama makes Bernie Madoff look like a boy scout!

The "Affordable Care Act" is "Obamacare," and re-branding doesn't change that. But after five years of failed leadership, it's understandable that the word "Affordable" is a better sales pitch than the word "Obama."

I can't remember the last time I heard a Democrat say the words "Hope and Change." Oh yeah, it's "Forward" now. And that's going REALLY well.

The Affordable Care Act is a latter day manifestation of the good conscience that drove Medicare. History will treat this legislation with the admiration and respect it deserves.

Goosegirl is an internet tough girl. Goosegirl uses the term "teabagger" to attempt a pathetic, childish insult directed towards people with whom she/he/it disagrees.

In short, Goosegirl is a liberal. Full of "tolerance" towards like-minded sheeple. Hate filled, arrogant, childish, shrill babies when they don't get their way.

Goosegirl-put your pacifier back in and demand that Mr. Moochelle Have you Seen What's In My Pocket Obama tell her husband to demand that the Senate give the House budget proposal an up/down vote.

Liberals understand up/down, thanks to Bill Clinton. Well, it depends on what your definition of up is.
