Don’t go wobbly now on me, GOP.
The more they yell and scream, write outrageous columns, get in front of cameras and say outrageous things, make outrageous doomsday predictions on the House floor, the more we know the right thing is being done.
They cannot allow the American people to see that we can actually survive without huge government. They cannot allow the American people to see that the economy will actually get better without the government taking away it’s fuel. They cannot allow the American people to see that they were wrong and have been wrong for nigh unto a century in power.
They must, at all costs, dispose this line of thinking that people do not need Big Bro...................
The left is totally off their medications; projecting madly on the Republicans. Hang tough Republicans.
Worth about as much as a promise to cut spending over 10 years. Hope I'm wrong.
The libs want a tax??? OK, anyone making less than 24K a year will pay an automatic 5%. This will effectively spread the pain around, and stop the non payment of taxes from an entire “protected” class....put that one to ‘em ( also, make welfare recipients pay taxes on what they get )
Now about default - paying interest on loans, paying for essential services is a must for the Government and they have enough money for that. No more borrowing means reduction of the bloated various - to use article word - cockamamie entitlement programs. Threat of default is a blackmail, plain and simple.
Not to mention that the idea of inability to pay debt w/o making more debt is absurd.
David Brooks is the poster-boy for Idiots International.
In the root sense of the word “idiot,” that is, unlearned, uninformed, naive.
The GOP should stand its ground — and fix bayonets.
And, I pray that they will, but something inside me says that in the end, they will fold like a cheap suit.
That's a big fat "if." Here's hoping that this time around, they don't cave, as they did in April.
BINGO, DING, DING, DING...WE HAVE A WINNER
With the Boner in charge, that could very well happen.
Synonyms for “idiot” : fool, half-wit; imbecile; dolt, dunce, numskull
And, in researching this, I was surprised to find that “numskull” was not spelled “numbskull”. Look at me; ever learning. Thanks Houghton.
David, you’ve got the wrong party!
Nuke'm from orbit.
Bttt. Are the house GOP members listening? If you don't you will cause a repeat of 2006.......
Paying the debt is a legally-mandated expenditure, as are other things like Social Security and Medicare. When there is no money, it's up to the President to decide what legally-mandated expenditure gets paid, and in what order of priority. Then if there's money left, non-mandated things get paid for.
This would actually be a powerful weapon in the hands of the next Republican president if we can hold the house: have the House not raise the debt ceiling, and allow the President to just not give any of the suddenly-limited money to the Dept of Education, EPA, etc.
Those trapped in the mass paradigm (Leftist groupthink) that’s destroying the U.S.A. are behaving more and more like raving lunatics!
What you found are contemporary, modern meanings of the word. The word in its Greek root (taken over into Latin), idiota, simply means someone uninformed, uneducated. It did not in itself mean stupid or mentally deformed etc.
Brooks is not stupid or retarded. He’s just sadly uninformed, naive. Idiot. Poster-boy for idiots around the world.
