President Obama vows to veto everything unless he gets precisely what he wants…just another spoiled child in this large sandbox. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, keeps any possibility of the democratic process from taking place by not allowing any bills on the floor for a vote. You see, “Dirty Harry” believes that he knows what is best for America and he plans to keep it within that circle. Meanwhile, he runs around labeling those with conservative viewpoints as “anarchists”…the term who apparently does not understand himself.
Across the way, in the House Chamber, Majority Leader John Boehner and his flock crank out bills designed to fund the government yet again under the “continuing resolution process” but restrain the impact or implementation of ObamaCare. Even with this goal in mind, the Republicans have offered to fund selected areas of government and received no takers across the aisle. Harry Reid even had the audacity to comment that “Anything could be discussed but the Republicans had to fully fund the government first.” Well, let’s have a show of hands to see how many folks really believe Harry Reid on that point. Thanks to Mr. Reid and Ms. Pelosi, Washington has totally lost its ability to “bargain in good faith”. A man or woman’s word on anything in Washington today is about as valuable as the U.S. One Cent piece…the penny!
Of course, all of this fits right into Obama’s agenda on disrupting the government and creating friction and chaos at every turn. Never should you forget then now famous cliché from his first term of office…”Never let a good disaster go to waste.” Oh, he’ll get up on his bully-pulpit to rant and rave as to how disastrous a government shutdown will be for the American economy and the American worker. He’ll go on and on taking his cheap shots at the “cruelty” of the Republicans while rationalizing everything that the Democrats do as something designed to “help middle-class America”. There is little or nothing about ObamaCare that will do anything but harm middle-income earners in America. This is a program with only two real objectives…control and wealth redistribution. If one wants to speak of “hurting middle-class Americans” then give due consideration to Obama raiding Medi-Care to the tune of $710 Billion dollars to fund this train-wreck his socialist ilk dreamed up.
The Democrat side of the aisle has long-since shanghaied the required-by-law process of creating an annual budget and placed the country on the “continuing resolution process”. In case you do not understand the concept of “continuing resolution”, then consider it as a form of “open checkbook” which allows the government to spend whatever it deems necessary until the “next debt-ceiling” needs to be raised…then this process of a three-act drama begins anew.
God forbid that the Obama Administration might have to live on a budget…not with all the hopes and dreams it holds for the fundamental transformation of America. Obama’s supporters, the left-wing media included, run around holding this guy up as intellectually-superior; a leader beyond comprehension; and a man with a vision that most of America cannot see. What a farce. This guy could not lead a pack of Girl Scouts to a cookie sale. He cannot prioritize spending in order to budget because he wants everything and is willing to give up nothing…even if America cannot afford it. If that is not enough for you, then I suggest that you take caution against any politician who would even suggest that the American people are divided into a “class system”.
We are experiencing one of the most sinister, manipulative, and ill-intending administration that ever held forth in the federal government. Our national debt in on track to almost double since Obama took office and Obama still demands to spend 30% more than we take in each year adding more and more to that debt load all in the name of “helping middle-class Americans”. What a crock of transparent crap! Since January 2009, there is not one action that has been taken on the part of the federal government which has any hope of “helping middle-class Americans”. Sadly, that was never the plan from the Obama perspective.
On the other side of the aisle, we have the “Weak-Stream” Republicans huddle there in an on-going discussion of “political correctness” letting Karl Rove use his white marker board to explain to them one more time why a “true conservative” cannot win public office in America. In the meantime, a handful of “true conservatives” are outcasts of their own party and are attacked as viciously by their own as they are by those across the aisle. All of this leads one to ask, “Why not let the Democrats run the Republican Party?”
Texas’ Senior Senator, John Cornyn, beats the drum continuously on Facebook for his constituents to “push to defund ObamaCare”. Then, he turns around and votes against that process in the Senate along with 24 other “so-called conservatives” who crossed the aisle. Now Cornyn is back on Facebook talking about how his pal, Ted Kruz, joined him on the floor of the Senate to carry the message of America’s opposition to ObamaCare. Somehow, I seriously doubt that Cornyn had anything of substance to say.
The federal government currently takes in around $200 Billion dollars monthly in revenue, most of which comes from payroll taxes. That money has not stopped coming into the treasury and it provides roughly $2.4 Trillion dollars annually which can be spent to operate various aspects of the government. That is not enough for the Obama administration which insists on spending an additional $1.2 to $1.4 Trillion dollars annually that must be borrowed in some fashion. When the President says that the shutdown is not about “spending” but about just “paying the bills”, he is doing his normal process of deceiving the American public in a wholesale fashion. The reason the deficit does not come down or go away is because those we elect to office in Washington keep coming up with more and more ways to spend every dime they can get their hands on…they are not going to reduce or give back one red cent until they are made to do it.
The really stupid aspect of this fiasco is that, we the American people are sitting out here watching it all like some three-act play and doing nothing about the insanity associated with it. We are essentially watching our own demise being played out in front of our eyes by a bunch of lousy actors who have no greater interest than to deceive us all as to what is really happening in America. At this point, we still have the ability to vote and change those things. If the current process continues on too much longer, that ability along with a lot more of our freedom and liberty will be gone…all rationalized by some government excuses. One thing that you can be very sure of today in this country is that the majority voice in America is not being heard…at least not above the level of a very faint whisper. You can thank your “elected ones” in Washington for that situation and many others.
Ask yourselves, why would any government ever put in the effort to create a budget if it can run in an indefinite fashion on “continuing resolutions”? The answer is obvious…why budget? We budget so that our households can remain in or near some state of solvency. The same is true for government although every idiot that is serving up there in Washington will attempt to tell you, the voter, in some fashion, that the government cannot take the same approach to income and spending as the average household. You see, for some undefined reason, it just does not work up there in Washington. Call it what you want, I know it as a “Steaming Heap of BS”. America deserves far better than what we see in this three-act drama.
