They have stopped listening....once they reached Masterhood over you, they only need your wallets to rape. They know you will keep re-electing them, if they are R’s just to keep the seat R from a demwit.
Several years back under slick willie we begged GOD to save America, we as citizens bought into the lie of voting for the lesser of 2 evils and elected RINOS, moderates those not grounded in the Constitution. Will He answer our cry again? Who knows.
God Save America AGAIN

It saddens me to know that no one in Washington has the cajones to do the right thing to fix this mess. This so-called deal looks slap-dash, haphazard and not at all effective in solving the debt problem. Even worse, it gives the spender-in-chief power to squander what little money is left. The ceiling should not have been raised.
Outstanding Jeff, simply outstanding. I too have sent emails today to my representatives. Lets turn up the heat on these crap weasels.
Retirement? What you mean?
Call..call..call..email..email..email..don’t go down without a fight..if this committee of 12 happens..tea party influence is toast..
They aren’t killing any Tea Party. What both parties don’t understand is that we the people ARE the tea party and millions of us will march to the polls in 2012. If they want to continue to believe the tea party is some boogie man, it’s fine with me. It won’t stop the grandmas, small business owners, football moms, veterans, anti-commies, etc. from kicking their sorry a$$es out in 2012.
Uuuuhh, ever hear the term “Death Panels?”
There is no money left to squander. Our nation is insolvent. Bankrupt. We’re already in default. Giving Obama a multi-trillion dollar raise in spending money we have to BORROW is sheer lunacy!! INSANITY!!
And turning the spending/taxing over to a Super Congress is UNCONSTITUTIONAL as hell!! It’s COMMUNISM!! It’s TREASON!!
HOLD THE LINE!!
A POX on these idiots!!
I can see 2012 from my house and it’s going to be bloodier than ever!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
I’ve made my calls to Alexander and Corker TN....told them NO on this unconstitutional piece of garbage, and we here in TN are mad as H.
It’s all a fraud, never once has it been suggested that the gov’t dispose of some of it’s property, selling it off to approved bider/buyers. But the taxpayers will still be stuck with the costs of keeping this property. Bet on it.
You have that right and I listened to the press conference and while it is good to have the blank check Democrat approach to spending slowed down there are very bad things in this bill which I find alarming. Specifically the creation of a ‘Super Congress’ which is EPA-like in the sense that whatever comes out of this ‘Super Congress’ can not be stopped without a 2/3rds vote. There are some features of this that are redeeming but the danger is in the question ‘How much do you trust them?”. I certainly don’t.
We didn’t lose in the sense that Washington is still just rubber stamping the debt ceiling but this is much like having your opponent bloodied and then calling a time out to let him recover. Also the credit rating downgrade they keep talking about is a certainity. Its going to happen. This bill is not going to slow that train down one bit. Now I’m not certain that a credit downgrade is a bad thing in the long run because it will make it harder to justify extending debt limits however you can be certain that when it does happen you will have this phrase repeated over and over in the media and campaigns “The Republicans took us to the brink and we are sufferring a credit downgrade because of it”. Will that stick I’m not sure.
That Democrats are not getting new tax increases is not a loss to them. They did lose the debate however the GOP in this deal is pulling its punches in hopes of running out the clock to 2012 and that strategy is a strategy to lose.
We basically have a ‘deal’ that doesn’t really cut the scope of spending and puts a lot of faith in a dangerous ‘super congress’ that will be split evenly between Democrats and GOP. We should know before any vote goes forward who the Republicans are going to be on this ‘Super Congress’ because I just don’t trust the idea and it would take a 2/3rds majority vote to override.
The irony of this is that the scope of debt ceiling increase is bigger than TARP. The first increase will be over 900 billion! This is NEW spending.
Rebellion is brewing!!
Oh how I wish that was true.
It's absolutely idiotic to pile on more debt and continue spending when you're already so deeply in debt that you can never get out.
No deal would be better than this MARXIST POS!!
BUMP, it can't be repeated enough!!!
IMHO. nothing will happen until we fall flat on our faces. I live on my measley retirement check and a SS check. The ex gets most of everything. I would give it all up and live on the streets if it would help us get back to the basics of what government is supposed to do. Live within your means. How hard is that to understand????
Just saying that you are not going to increase spending with an imaginary baseline is not a cut.....If I say say I gained 25 pounds this year instead of 100 doesn't mean I lost 75......
I will donate only to those Tea Party Republicans who voted NO. All others can pund sand.
I di believe that the GOP as a party needs to have their budget cut BIG TIME.
I hope it isn’t too late.
They have stopped listening....once they reached Masterhood over you, they only need your wallets to rape.
And in this case the victim’s name will be reported: The United States Of America. The perpertrators are those alleged 535 representatives of the people. They no more represent me than does Putin, in fact, I trust Putin more.
The new chant....”Boenher, Boenher get a clue, it’s about revenue”
Senators Crapo and Ritsch,and Representative Labrador,
The "deal" with the dems is no deal.
It cedes the congressional responsibility on debt ceiling to the President unless a 2/3rds majority overrules it. I do not believe that is constitutional. it seems that most of the so-called "cuts" are coming from cutting the rate of future spending...which means they are not cuts at all. As to tax cuts, the Dems plan to allow the Bush tax cuts to end, thereby raising everyone's taxes.
I expect, per my letter of July 28th, my representatives to hold true to a common sense, obvious, sane economic line.
Do so, and live a balanced budget, or we the voters will find someone who will.
Do not borrow any more. The default scare tactics are a fallacy and a lie. We have more than enough revenue to cover it, to cover our military, sociail security and medicare. Start cutting from there to have us fall within the 200 billion we bring in.
Cut spending drastically to within our means and income.
Cap spending to a modest rate of GNP that would allow for a balanced budget in five years minimum in any case.
Pass the balanced budget amendment and send it to the states.
My vote hinges on these things...and the other things I always look to (fundamental moral principle, abiding the constitution according to the intent of those who wrote it, defense of this nation and its borders, defense of the unborn, and holding firm on the 2nd amendment)>
August 1, 2011
"In politics the middle way is none at all."
I just called my representative from SC (Tim Scott) and was told he was LOOKING at the bill. I informed him that he had better find out how his constituents are feeling...FAST.
I also told his assistant that it’s all over the news what kind of POS this bill is and that how I vote in the 2012 election will rest SOLELY on this bill.
I’m seeing red right now.
Gang of 12! The congressional Politburo. I like it.
“The Hill” says it may not pass.
Yep, rebellion is in the works. Can’t wait for the 2012 election......
To a Democrat or RINO this means do it my way and we agree.....
Ok so let’s say this bill passes as it seems it probably will. Then what? What happens if 2012 goes in our favor and we gain even more seats in the house and we get back the Senate and pray God, Obama loses. Or,what if we get back the whole of Congress but Obama still wins. Are future Congresses bound to this agreement. I know it will become law but can it be repealed or whatever? Or what if new legislation is proposed and passed that cuts taxes and basically nullifies this deal?
Someone please help me out. Give me best case scenario if this turd passes.
Not a very good criteria there. What of those who withold their votes until the bill has enough YES votes to pass and then vote NO. This happened with 6 pubs during the Boner Bill vote the other day. They just jumped on the bandwagon to look good to the TP.
They should then turn to the Senate and say we passed CCB deal with it while we prepare a prioritizing spending bill for tomorrow....
Jim, I haven’t felt this kind of despair since Congress was ramming Obamacare down our throats. Their complete disregard for their sworn oaths, their responsibilities, our country, the people they are supposed to represent—it’s stunning.
Excellent post. I look at this bunch and realize that we wouldn`t get too much more even if R`s ran the senate and had the White House. The reason is that there are just as many Republicans who want pork as Dems—of course they have `good reasons`. This is why we need Tea Party folks IN CONTROL because as we saw this weekend TPers don`t give a crap about the speaker at their fundraiser. We must learn this: THERE IS A FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE REPUBLICAN AND THE TEA PARTY MINDSETS. Tea Partiers [it seems to me] actually BELIEVE what Republicans INCLUDING SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS CLAIM TO BELIEVE. sorry for so many caps but we must learn this, and vote accordingly. We have to stop looking at politicians as `our guys/gals` and regard them coldly—do they DO and not just SAY? If yes, support them, if not, out they go. No more of the country club get-along types—it`s time for representatives of stature and honesty.
I wonder how many real tea party candidates will be running
I received this from a friend who is a member of Klamath County Tea Party from the No. Klamath County Patriot:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has notified. in writing. the banks to inspect their safety deposit boxes and freeze any gold, silver, guns or other valuables they find in them!
This order is also given that storage facilities be searched for the same to be seized!
May I add that unless our votes are cast in a precinct voting booth, and the votes are counted by human hands instead of manipulative computers by the government itself, we will never be able to reverse the Socialist direction Obama is taking the country and head resolutely in the direction to our beloved Constitution and Bill of Rights.
It has been proven over and over that SOCIALISM IS SUICIDE!
“I hope it isnt too late.”
Sorry, to break it to ya, but it already is too late.
The only hope now is for the entire country to come crashing down....BEFORE 2012. Only then, would a true conservative be able to walk in and change things
If 2012 comes with the same old political bickering, back and forth, lame talking points and generalities, nothing will change and we will get a slow drip into pure socialism/communism.
The time has come.
Unfortunately, if this turd passes, there is no best case scenario. Obama will use his newly authorized largess to purchase enough votes to get reelected. Four more years of Marxism and this country is toast!!
HOLD THE LINE!!
Obama is now threatening to withhold social security checks and paychecks for the military. And he’s threatening to illegally invoke the 14th amendment to grab power the power to authorize taxing and spending from the congress and do it himself by presidential edict!
Obama is a wannabe communist dictator. The treasonous bastard should be impeached!!
HOLD THE LINE!!
Rebellion is brewing!!

I am now just totally disgusted with the national Republican Party. They willfully acquiesced to the Democrats lies about August 2nd being 'default day' and scurried to 'make a deal' that they could claim was a 'victory' for the GOP because it didn't specifically include any new taxes. However, the 'deal' gives the Marxist president Obama permission to immediately borrow over 2 trillion dollars, leading the U.S. deeper in debt while the spending 'cuts' are relatively small and mostly ethereal, conveniently spaced out over a decade, making them less than useless. As so many are saying: we've been had, yet again. Had enough, yet? I have. I'm hoping the TEA party Representatives hold the line and sink this insult to the American taxpayer.
That Michele Bachman is vowing to vote against this monstrosity has raised my admiration for her. I'm hoping my real favorite, Sarah Palin, makes a definitive statement on this proposed Bill and that she wallops it hard,, as she should. If she doesn't - or remains silent - Palin will have greatly diminished her stature as a constitutional conservative, in my eyes. I don't think that will happen. In any event, I'm against this Bill and I'm against any Republican House member that votes for it, no matter their past record or conservative 'credentials'. This is the metaphorical 'line in the sand' for most conservatives. It certainly is for me. Cross it and - as a member of congress - you're no longer representing me (or any American) but simply playing the old political game of 'screw the taxpayer'. Well, this time it'll be coming right back at you because we're done with this crap.
If the TEA party plays this correctly...they will vote NO and the measure fails.
This forces 0bama to finally do more than vote present. It forces him to use his dictatorial powers. 0bama then owns whatever mess ensues.
And the TEA party can point out until the elections...we tried to stop them.
Come January 2013, if 0bama wins massive tax burdens go into effect from pre-existing legislation. The country will be ungovernable at that point. The minor mobs prior to the elections...will be nothing in the aftermath of an 0bama election win.
0bama loses. New President exercises full Executive Authority to mitigate,nullify, and/or immediate repeal of the damaging laws. The country still intensifies with violence, but it becomes short-lived as our economy starts to come back online.
I have made the call to all my congresscritters. I registered my discontent with the monstrosity that came out of the Senate to my tea party freshman congresswoman and with Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio. Rubios rep said he will not vote for the monstrosity. I think the Congresswoman will vote against it but the Democratic Demagogue Bill Nelson will likely vote for it because he cares nothing for the American People but only for his Demagoguery.
Do you have any links to this???
Has anyone else lost Comcast signal? Here in SC, it has been down for about an hour now.
At this point, paranoia is your friend.
