This is such a dog and pony show!! I have been watching this Congressional crap for days. Then the President comes out with his backdrop of middle-income people for a publicity stunt.
The war mongers coming out saying the military will be cut to shreds. I don’t believe that because they will be able to cut back on bases that are no longer needed. Or even pull out of areas that don’t want us there anyway, except for the money we give them. Another story.
None of these congressmen (perhaps a few) want to do anything except pad their own pockets. Even the President decided Congress was doing such a good job of drama he gave them a raise!! Whoopee.
Let the g-damn fiscal cliff go over the edge and at least we might see some spending cuts. The Senate, not the House, hasn’t managed to pass a budget in 4 years. Since when don’t we take care of our household budgets? Not the Congress, they apparently don’t need one and just keep printing money.
If there is anyone on the Congressional Hill reading this meager post … stick to your guns and don’t give in to increasing the debt ceiling and not cutting spending. Stop letting these guys SPEND more money!!! Look, no matter what the panic is to date (there have been many) let these cuts happen. This Congress cannot get a grip on reality and maybe if the cliff happens perhaps both the populace and Congress will GET IT.
Why do we need a crisis? Congress, particularly the Senate and ol’ Harry should have paid attention to a few things the House has put on their table back in May and even before. Duh.
Don’t you just love politicians? How many times do we have to listen to the disagreements about the fiscal cliff? How many years and band-aids? And, now, us citizens are going to have to deal with the lame duck session! Whoopee!
The blame game begins. What have either of the parties done for us (citizens) except take our hard earned cash and spend more money? These guys and gals working up on Capital Hill are so protected from everything. They don’t have to follow the rules they hand down for us, they have made themselves exempt.
So, my thought. Let the damn fiscal cliff hit. What the heck, I would sooner have it hit earlier than later because the economy is been going downhill fast and isn’t going to be any better in 2013 anyway. Then maybe somebody up in the Congress will get their butts in gear. (Only wishful thinking here.)
You’ve got the Federal Reserve printing QE Forever which has caused the world monetary system to down grade the U.S. triple A rating.
Prices going up, up, up. When was the last time anyone on the Hill went to a grocery store to do their own shopping?
Unions ruling the roost for all of their benefits. Bankrupting large cities and even some states teetering. Quite frankly I don’t want the government to give them bailouts because they are to big to fail, but they (politicos) will, what is new? How many taxpayer dollars will it take to bail out the “to bigs to fail” before citizen taxpayers out there realize it is OUR money those crooks on the Hill are spending?
So what the heck, I say go for it you Political a$$holes. You’ve got yourself and your political buddies covered. Just go ahead and screw us little guys with your regulations, affordable health care, meanwhile taking our civil liberties away, and at every turn making us go through security check points and personal encroachment for our OWN protection.
These Politicos haven’t been able to come up with a budget for three and a half years so what makes anyone think they can come up with a solution to the Fiscal Cliff? Plus, we might never see a real budget again.
Sooner or later, maybe, some normal people will get a slap in the face and wake up. My fear is probably never because the News Media is just as corrupt and they have the crooked politicians backs.
I’ve saved my whole life and with a government like ours I’ll probably end up penniless begging for one meal a day! Oh, with no trans-fat, salt, sugar or anything else in the food chain they want to turn into ethanol and deem bad food for me. But beggars can’t be choosers, can we?
So you Capital Hill Politicians, let the damn Fiscal Cliff begin!!
Hello my Friendly Readers.
I am sorry I haven’t posted a blog for such a long time but I have been consumed with what is going on in this election process and events around the globe. To that point I have not been able to even touch on so many of the topics that have enraged me. Some of the things I have heard and seen have just left me totally speechless. Jaw dropping information. Thank goodness for the internet.
The news pundents, pollsters and media have been dreadful. Oh and lets not forget the PAC ads (they should be banned). The half truths, lying by omission, and flat out lies have been horrific!
What happened to civility? Transparency? Economy and jobs? Foreign relations? My questions go on and on.
Embassy murders, sharia extremists burning, rioting, and attacking our embassy’s in a host of middle eastern countries, gas prices off the rector scale because the EPA won’t allow drilling, coal and virtually shutting down our own natural resources (wait till you need heating in the winter), food restrictions of salt, sugar and the size of a soda. I am one of the aged but I don’t think anyone is going to throw me off a cliff.
Oops, I could be wrong about the cliff statement. If gas, food and household necessity prices keep rising that cliff thing will probably just happen to all of us. To make matters worse the government keeps printing bogus money with their QE-Forever! What the heck is Bernanke thinking? My mother and I were immigrants and coming from Germany she had stories about the inflated mark. Trust me those stories about that inflated money were not good.
Then you have European countries running amok because the people don’t want to give up their freebies. Even U.S. is heading down the European path. Heck with my little income of social security I even qualify for a cotton pic-kin’ free cell phone, which I won’t take! Socialist, Communists, Muslim Brotherhood and Nazi parties making progress in the elections in foreign countries.
Now here in the U.S., of course, we get weeks of stupid information like the gaffs Biden makes, Big Bird, and stupid stuff like binders. Who gives a shit? Geez Big Bird is a big conglomerate and is broadcast world wide. Why should the tax payer subsidize the bird? The bird even got stimulus money, give me a break. Real news might be refreshing.
Crap with drug cartels on the unsecured borders. Mind you congressional Republicans and Democrats, alike, don’t want to address this because they don’t want to deal with the issue. Cartels for drug smuggling digging huge tunnels under the border? Well how about finding them and then blow the damn tunnels up!
I’ve mentioned before, in previous posts, that I have always been an independent voter but this year I have actually volunteered to pound the pavement and get involved because if we don’t get out and VOTE I fear this country is going to hell in a hand basket and I for one do not want to be ruled by the United Nations. Can you believe these jokers (UN) are coming here to monitor our elections! Most of them have no clue what a Republic is! Oh and have you heard of Agenda21?
Sorry, I did rant on way too many topics but I have taken a lot of thought about keeping this post as clean as possible. I guess I’ll just turn on the NEWS and get a recap of Dancing with the Stars.
