So get your duct tape ready before you watch this video from MSNBC. As is usual with liberals the woman on the right (while actually on the LEFT) continues to interrupt the man on the left (Actualy RIGHT & CORRECT) thus the need for duct tape to contain your head’s impending explosion. When you cannot win an argument talk louder and over everybody else. To his credit Mr. Schiff does not partake of this type of “debate” though on many levels I wish he would just tell her to shut up while he talks.
The borrowing refers to the need to yet again raise our debt ceiling and allow politicians the ability to spend more by borrowing more. I, unlike the article’s author, used the term “politicians” rather than just Obama when referring to the one(s) doing the borrowing. This story is should be primer on how the political class (both right and left and middle) play the game to ensure that they stay in power while seeming to play to their bases.
The Great Vilsacko performs his money magic trick.
I am currently reading Return to Prosperity by Phd economist Arthur Laffer and I’ll review the book as usual after I finish it, but a recent statement by President Obama’s Agriculture Secretary had me referring to the “Econ 1” phrase Dr. Laffer uses frequently when describing politicians lack of knowledge that is taught in a basic economics class. Secretary Vilsack appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to tout the benefits of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (“SNAP” or Food Stamps as we used to call it). Vilsack called SNAP the “most direct stimulus you can get into the economy during these tough times.” I guess that he also considers the fact that America has vastly increased the number of people “stimulating” the economy as 1 in 7 people are in the program. Let that sink in…NEARLY 15 PERCENT OF OUR FELLOW AMERICANS GET FOOD FROM THE GOVERNMENT!
“Top Democrats and Republicans in Congress prepared new proposals to avert a government debt default and a potential global financial crisis.”
That’s the lead paragraph from a story in today’s paper. What should scare you is when Democrats and Republicans agree on something the public generally gets screwed. I believe that both sides realized that they set up this “battle” and now that the public is watching they are not sure how to get out from all of the rhetoric that they have been spreading. What both sides agree on is that they both want desperately to get re-elected and regain power. Even a little power is better than none and they are more than willing to squander our money, our children’s money, and our grandchildrens’ money to maintain their power. Here are few facts as I see them:
I know many of these stories are serious, but the headlines removed the restrain from my brain and we get headline humor. These are the actual headlines as I found on-line. When you click on the headline you will be taken to the original story which more often than not has nothing to do with my vision of the headline.
We were blessed on Valentine’s Day with the release of the Obama Administration’s 2012 budget proposal. The cover of the document perhaps should have been red, but give him credit Obama is coming out swinging in defense of his vision for our economic future (sound of toilet flushing in the distance). It is an interesting tactic to produce this and immediately have his lackeys and media dogs go on the attack because the Republicans have not given their proposal for the 2012 budget. Perhaps that is because they are working to cut from the current budget before taking on the next one. The 2011 bloated Democrat budget is not a done deal.
