Skip to comments.D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.
Posted on 02/26/2013 12:53:08 PM PST by KC_Lion
Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.
Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasnt the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or more revenue as he likes to call it. The American public doesnt want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.
If we cant stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.
If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when were running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then were done. Put a fork in us. Were finished. Were going to default eventually and thats why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.
If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then lets stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

Calvin Coolidge wanted to fix this problem and guess what!?
HE FREAKING FIXED IT!!!!
He didn't play with the idea of Grandma not having an Ambulance when he knew that he could cut the Redundant Department of Redundancy without any negative consequences what so ever.
I don't know what it will take to get through to these people.
Here in Kansas we just had a Major snow storm and we handled it fine.
But maybe when Walmart is bare and their iPhone's don't work anymore they will fricking understand!!
It’s easy enough to see why the Left is so hysterical about portraying this woman as a fool or an imbecile. This is brilliant, direct, and powerful. What a shame she has been the object of such abuse.
My only concern is that we be the Eastern Empire and not the Western....
Coolidge is probably my second-favorite president, for precisely that reason; my favorite would be John Adams (not saying he was perfect, his acquiescence to political expediency via the Alien and Sedition Acts are proof of that; but reading a lot of what he said & did is... inspiring).
This is typical of what Obama does..he creates drama, then goes out and blames the Republicans for it and he has the lapdogs in the media in his back pocket so they say whatever he wants them to say..Obama does this ALL THE TIME..Sequestration was HIS idea..but will his kiss asses in the media report that..OF COURSE NOT..this is what Obama does to create drama and to try to create a rift in the Republican party, which he wants to destroy
I could not said it better myself S.B.
You have the brevity of your name sake.
Do you mind if I use it in the future when we talk about this damned topic?
Absolutely I would be honored thanks!!
That was an excellent miniseries.
Pray to God that He guards the Palin family.
I LOVE SARAH PALIN!
G-d Bless You Bicyclerepair!
Yep, ...or as Governor William J. Le Petomane said: “We’ve gotta protect our phoney baloney jobs, gentlemen! “
BALANCED BUDGET NOW BALANCED BUDGET NOW BALANCED BUDGET NOW..........
That the solution that insider politicians, big business and big labor refuse to face.
Its much easier to keep the drama going to pump up markets and pretend prosperity is coming in the future.
Yep, Sarah speaks the truth succinctly that even a low information voter can figure out what’s going on and that’s why the media and libs trash her continually
Does anyone, right, left, middle or totally apathetic, take this assclown posse in D.C. seriously anymore? We have got to break out of this two party game they are all running on us.
."Hey, I didn't get a harumph outta that guy!"
Sarah nails it, as usual, even down to the bullet stockpiling, putting the DC crowd that even that detail has not escaped noticed.
Hope no one takes this the wrong way, but this woman has more testicular fortitude than anyone in DC.
Somehow, someway, she has to be the next President.
Seriously OWS, Adams was another GHWB.
He believed in elitism in his heart.
It isn’t just D.C.
It has spread to every state, county, and city in the country.
Faithful bump back at you. :D
It does seem to be a contagious disease even spreading through the general populace. The wussification of America. Huey Long said “every man a King.” Today it’s “every man a drama Queen.”
Sarah posted this on Facebook a mere 6 hours ago. Since then, 47,268 people have “liked”, 3657 have commented and 9769 have shared the post with their own circle of friends. That is powerful networking!
We have the makings for a grassroots conservative/tea party taking back of our country if we choose to work together.
Just don't tell that to the PDSer's, their blind Republicanism and/or jealously clouds their vision. Lol

I just got done discussing that in a FReep Mail conversation with Onyx.
Whatever Sarah says gets around quick, not to mention on Facebook and F.R. but several blogs also pick it up and send it across their twitters.
Real America's voice isn't relayed through the MSM, but it is amongst itself.
I believe you do him a disservice; most of what I read indicates a passion for [legal/lawful] justice (he successfully defended the soldiers of the "Boston massacre")... this is very much unlike the disregard for [constitutional] law shown by GHWB via PAtriot Act or the coining of the term "enemy combatants" to grant Al Qeda personnel legal protections they were/are not entitled to (POW rules only apply to uniformed soldiers, which they plainly are not). -- Yes the Alien and Sedition Acts were a big stumbling on the part of Mr Adams, but I think it unwise to characterize the whole of his character on those.
Your grasp of US history appears a bit weak.
Or do you confuse GHWB with W?
Think it all out. The Alien and Sedition acts were from his heart.
When the war was over, the people just seized and moved into the homes of people that had homes, or estates. They burned the furniture inside to create warmth. The owners were glad to be allowed to live in a room of their own.. This is what we are facing. No longer owning private property, or having more than another in any area.
It is a terrorizing prospect. We will be reduced to survival day to day.
IMPOSSIBLE one says ...
Study what has happened anywhere in the world when “communism” takes over. Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, China, ... indeed the difference in West Germany ... and the East Germany divided by a major wall. Huge difference in how people lived. In fear of retribution ... God we cry out to thee LORD. Forgive us our sins and the turning away from thee. Have mercy on America. Help us to return to our christian values and actions. We can do no thing without Thee. We look to Thee to direct our path, in Jesus name amen.
God help America. We are on the edge of the precipice and wobbling in danger of plunging into this abyss.
