While the press cheers, the the Democrats rejoice, while the Republicans smart, but everyone lost this week. One group of people tried to take a stand against the government controlling our lives and they lost. The press beat on them and beat on them. Ridicule was heaped on them. Now the road to spending America into the ground has been cleared of its debris.
Do note that the fascists spent more money in the process. The bill included a number of spending items. Odd that only MSNBC ( that I was able to see) mentioned them and listed them. One would expect them to be the most likely to hide spending of money, or do they just rejoice in the high of spending?
If one accepts the presses’ choice of interviewees, spending should proceed to its highest. Only the crazy want to stop. Only the crazies fear a debt of 20 Trillion or even more.
Of course the real crisis will come when the world economy refuses to buy our debt. They will force us to buy for a while, but without the world doing it, collapse is the result. Who will the press and the supporters of spending blame when China says no thanks, or just a mutual fund in some Asian country says not thanks (Senator Tom Coburn’s example in The Debt Bomb).
I can see NBC or ABC now with prime time lineups on the canning of vegetables and the joys of poverty when the government is not unable to pay because of legislative limits but unable to pay because no one will lend them the money.
will we buy “Them Asians” or those Chinese. Look what they have done to us, or will we grow up and admit, we did this ourselves. We ridicule those saying it was going to happen. We laughed at warnings as racism.
Even in the short run think of how many could be helped if the half trillion in payments of interst on the debt went to actually helping kids or the disabled? What will we do if the potential large scale disasters facing the US happen. A cliff in the Azores could slip any day and the east coast could be hit with a tsunami. Might be nice to have a trillion to fix that one, or the expected big one in California. can we ask the world to finance us an extra couple trillion to fix these. Let your people hurt so we can fix things? That is not going to sell.
How will all the folks just wild over government spending more and more react when the government says sorry, no more left. How much will the riots cause us to wish we had listened?

There are alternative ways to show development in today’s world. One common way is to develop a “Happiness” index. This combines measures of things thought to make people happy. They do have issues over whether certain items indeed indicate happiness. For example, does wealth indicate happiness or would living in a sustainable way that is poorer indicate a happier life. Some are seeing America as a very unhappy place today, yet any financial indicators would put it to the top of being happy.
Of course the point raised today is that America does not look like a happy country. The murder issue in many cities does not look very smiley. The growing concern over the lack of civility marks tension not happiness. I isolation of technology noted in the behavior of many, speaks of unhappiness. The political infighting over the basic nature and future of the country seems endless, and this is further underlined by the drastic differences in viewpoints struggling for superiority. Is America to be a place of freedom and Individual lives, or is it a group collective where safety provided by the gods of the state determine the nature of life. The battle is so essential that one begins to think it could not happen in a place defined as happy. Even the poor and liberals would wrench in pain if the United States were a model of a happy place. Government growth and communal takeover of life is furthered by pain. Exploit that pain until we are all robots of the fascist state the liberals seek. ere considered a happy place on financial terms. They see us as the bottom.
Robert Graves, in I, Claudius, had Emperor Claudius, when looking over the mess around him him and feeling powerless, say “Let all the poisons in the mud hatch out.”
This is the strategy the Conservative side should take. Do nothing but let the impending failure and mess happen. The biggest possible mark against the program will be to let it happen as written. Even the Obama regime has admitted things are not going well in some areas (hence the waivers and delay of imposing on business). If the Congress itself does not want it, how awful can it possibly become. They point to successes only by using their interpretation of data that others see the other way (many see costs of insurance up while Obama looks at numbers to talk down in the face of up). If they misdefined the affordable in terms of individuals so some families will have to forgo subsidies. Let it all happen. They wrote it and they connived to pass it (if what they did counts as legal passing).
The abomination’s worst enemy is itself. Look at the writers of the bill. Look at the ignorance of those voting on the bill of the bill. As Pelosi said, “We have to pass this bill in order to find out what it says.” Let is happen. “Let all the poisons in the mud hatch out.”

Old P.T. was right then, and certainly right today. So much of the American public is easily described as suckers. The buy the bilge the criminals in Washington put out as policy and legislation. The ony issue is tha they must be born faster than one a minute.
Another government debt limit crisis without any serious solutions to the problem. If we gave a credit card to a 12 year old, they would display more sense than 80% of the elected criminals in Washington D.C.
I have heard more and more people saying good shut it down, including Jay Leno. Myself I just say replacement the elected criminals with totally new people. Do not shut it down, replace it or them. Only then can an intelligent discussion of the coming destruction of the United States be accomplished. Senator Tom Coburn's (R0OK) book The Debt Bomb leads to that conclusion. While he continues to try, the suckers will buy any bilge the criminals put out, so total replacement is the only answer.
But sadly the suckers will buy another run at fraudulent statesmanship of making that last minute deal to save us all while really selling us down the tubes. When the suckers suddenly find that overspending is being handled by a future destruction of the dollar--when the suckers have to pay $10 for that gallon of gas and $15 for a hamburger--will they begin to come out of their stupor and toss the criminals out. The criminals believe the suckers will accept their claim that Bush did it, but many will no longer remember Bush and the criminals might be exposed for they shysters they are. A pox on all their houses.

Obama blames the sequester and the Republicans for not undoing it as the cause of the killings at the naval base. The next day an admiral tells Congress no cuts have been made I security. This all couples to the red line comment Obama made that has allowed Putin to play him like a cheap piano. Does Obama have any control of his impulses? Does he think things out at all? Does he think Americans are so stupid they will not note that he makes constant blundeers. And by the way, he was a part of the sequester, but now mad others will not undo his blunders. How manyy times does he not seem to know things others think he should? What a turkey the man has become.

Funny how the Washington elites can turn on the people. They want to serve the people and the people are important until the survey says the people do not agree with them. Boxer showed that on Sunday TV by pointing out that the people have not seen what she has seen, even if Obama has be quite open about showing things, and she knows better. What elitist trash. What she has seen is useless compared to a public not wanting another war that will up the charge card some more with hardly a person in Washington with the sense to look and say hey we are going down the tubes.
Unless the chemical weapons stash is gone, bombing anything cannot make our world safer. Just Obama into the moral compass he wants to be buts fails. Brings out the children being killed propaganda, but parties when we kill 7000 babies here a day. Moral when it suits his purpose. That means you cannot trust his sense of morality, he is making it up as he goes.
All troops from all continents, home now! Hey that is what the liberals have wanted for decades unless their district sells something to the military.

An amazing press conference visit [July 19] by Obama brought the startling revelation, for him, that racism cannot be fought by politicians, hence government, but has to be dealt with among people, families, etc. This runs counter to everything he and his party believe. Government has all the answers in their normal talk, but suddenly it cannot do something. Look back at Clintons' It takes a village to raise a Child book, the family cannot do it, well in line with earlier Marxist writers. It almost seems the man is giving up on his goals by just saying such a thing. He did look tired.
Of course, he is right this time. How often does that happen? It must indicate some shift in his thinking. To just show up by surprise and make such a reversal of philosophy is beyond belief. One is free to wonder if he really believes what he said or did not think it out as those of his party do?

in memory 1942-2013
Annette played a major part in the lives of many baby boomers. She was not a great figure in education, politics, art, and such; but was a symbol of a period of time when things just seemed better in the United States. The gang at the lake mourns her passing.

Is "law" the answer to problems? or, is it merely a palliative bordering on a joke? The Washington crowd fully buys the concept that to pass a law solves all problems. Their egos tell them this is what I do, it must work. If the law fails to solve the problem, more law is the only possible answer. As the supreme source of law, the Washington crowd is deep into making Americans dependent upon secular government. Law can solve it all and produce a country filled with "great" values. Now violence will end with more laws. It is part of the mantra of government. The record is poor.
The "War on Poverty" legislation ended poverty, did it not? The War of Drugs just wiped out drug use. It is illegal, it just be gone. Education can be improved only via law. we must lead the world in that one. Murder is banned by a lot of laws, it cannot possibly exist now.
In the end the success rate of law is quite poor. Law solves little. But it does promote careers in the Washington Game. I passed a law is the first claim of the candidates. The American public is known for not following along, so they buy this. They buy it like candy at Christmas or Easter, an ice cream cone in July. P. T. Barnum has it right, there is s sucker bone every minute, and Washington believes in W. C. Fields "never give a sucker and even break." . America needs a sense of shame. Open those eyes. Breathe the stupidity.

One has to wonder why the administration would consider a simple no to Senator Rand Paul’s question so hard to give? To not give an answer is to leave wide open the possibility that the answer is yes, yet the full liberal segment of the nation would yell that “no” is the answer.
In the end one has to further speculate that the dug in, no compromise position of the administration has taken such deep hold that even answering obvious questions of a constitutional nature provokes a divise response rather than the obvious answer. Again an answer the liberal side would overwhelmingly, if not totally, support.
Is Obama that set on being divisive? What does he hope to get from this when all oppose this digging in position.

Her more immediate topic was to make a brief addition to the “War on Christmas” squabble that the nation has been having since 2005 (in its present form). To this point she noted that Castro banned Christmas elements as part of changing who we [they] are. While multicultural, diversity, and constitutional areas are certainly involved in changing the place of relation in American society, she points out the outcome of the liberal attack on faith. The attack is meant to diminish while at the same time bring the new god of the state to the forefront.
As debate rages over whether the destruction of faith is the liberal goal, the impact of just having such a debate is that faith is diminished. One destroys by diminishing. Anything the media casts in a negative light is diminished when that attack is continual. The same is true for the other direction. The national change in attitudes toward gay and lesbian right is an example. What had been negative is slowly turned to a positive. But the reverse is true, too. Constant negative turns the positive to the negative.
As the government and media diminish faith, the gay-lesbian change is also example of the government takeover of values. It leads at times rather than follows. So, that the government is the new source of values is not making too much of a leap.

The Legal Information Institute at Cornell University explains the government's policy on giving the government donations. Learn about you gifts at 31 USC § 3113
Amazing as it seems, a policy and law is requird for the government to just take in a donation. One would think they would just add it to the pot, subject to designations on where the money should be spent. They say the government does get donations. So showing your support for Obama’s plans for a bigger government should behoove all liberals to make their donations as soon as possible so opposition to those plans can be quieted. Do not force the government’s propaganda machine to work overtime, make your contributions so free speech need not come under attack.

There is a simple solution readily available to the citizens of the United states who think taxes should be higher to pay for the growth of services and government. Nothing actually is in their way either. it exists and does not require any congressional action at all. Just pay it.
Every year the Internal Revenue Service takes in free contributions from taxpayers. If Warren Buffet is bothered by the fact he pays a rate less than his secretary, he is 100% free to make up the difference. If all those thinking they do not pay enough just took this patriotic and easy to make option to just pay the difference, or more. absolutely nothing is stopping any of these people.
The same applies to all who wish to help the government serve the nation and think taxes should be higher. Take action. Do not wait for the Congress to act. Just make that free will donation. Let the media know. They will be most happy to praise you and make large how patriotic and proper you are. The publicity would be priceless.
Once you think of this choice, one wonders why these people have not made use of this option already?

If we just look the other way and let 11 million illegal immigrants get away with violating the law, what reason would there be for others to obey the law any more? If 11 million taxpayers just faked it all and paid nothing, would we forgive? Can the United States afford to make fools again out of those who obey the law and give criminals a break? I am not sure they have enough law enforcement people to enforce the law if average law abiding people say oh forget it and do as they please.

If the proposed illegal immigration package passes as they are proposing, or a similar package, what are the plans to take care of the anger of allowing one group of people to ignore the law? Maybe the bill should include a “Get Our of Jail Free” card for all citizens. The Constitution does demand fairness and equality. All deserve a free illegal move. Most would just ignore taxes for a time. One could limit the scope of the crimes, of course. They also should prepare a statement for teachers on how to teach kids to obey the law while they reward law breakers so. That could be a tough one.

If you champion the violation of the law by illegal immigrants, how can more law be your answer to any problem, including gun control and mass shootings? Washington, and specifically the Democrats, think law is the only answer to all. Yet if law is then all law must receive their backing and support, You cannot fail to enforce one law, while actively supporting the right of people to violate it, then expect respct for law. …probably never occurs to the party that they do this.
