[Vanity] Time for the House to Cut Up the Credit Card
11/27/12 | ez

Posted on 11/27/2012 3:38:24 PM PST by ez

Blam just posted that Dems are now seeking to extend the debt ceiling now as part of any fiscal cliff deal. Hell to the NO!!

It's put up or shut up time Republicans. You give lip service to smaller government...PROVE IT.

The debt ceiling is the line in the sand. No debt ceiling increase, no tax raises, NO MORE SPENDING.

You will lose this PR battle anyway, do something that will mean something. Shut it down. Live bold, reset the game, subvert the dominant paradigm.

You have the power to make the government live within it's means in one, fell swoop. Don't make a deal...let the cuts happen. Don't agree to raise taxes, and DON'T EXTEND THE DEBT CEILING.


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: 112th; debtceiling; fiscalcliff; vanity
Time to cut up the credit card. See you on the other side...

I just sent a similar email to my Senator Ron Johnson and told him to hold the other Repubs feet to the fire also.

I’ve been confused about how to handle the negotiations, but now I see clearly...we have to fight spending at every turn.

The Republicans will cave.

Why do you think this will matter?

THERE HAS NOT BEEN A FEDERAL BUDGET IN > 3 YEARS.

During this time, over ten trillion dollars have been disbursed from the Treasury.
Nothing can be done now to stop it.

That post right there is all you need to know about why America will fail.

Congress has been neutered. So, what do we need ‘em for ?
Their whole claim to fame was the hand on the money spigot.

Mr. Jim Noble gets the post of the year award (at least from me).

Prepare people, as best you possibly can.

You have a very depressing point. Going back to shopping for a .22.

Anything less than 10% growth is a "cut" probably... I guess we shall see

Sure they will. Hasn’t everyone learned yet that no one, and I repeat, no one stabs you in the back quicker than these Republican turds (Obama Rim Job Fat Boy Christie come to mind amongst others or have you forgotten already). When the going gets tough the Republicans hide, cower and take a big dump on those stupid enough to keep voting for the (R) after their name. It is way past time to tell these republican bastards to take a hike. All of them. Until there is a critical mass of the electorate that does not have their heads eternally in their fourth point of contact NONE OF THIS MATTERS.

Well, there “could” be. When about 5 million armed americans showed up at the Capitol and raised a little hell, our spineless speaker might grab some sack and stand up to the marxists.

Oh well, excuse me for fantasizing, I forgot, we have no leader because if one came forth many of our own whiney conseratives would tear them to shreds...............uh, Sarah Palin anyone!

3 million super smart conservatives stayed home giving us all four more years of this sob. Jeez! If only 326,000 of the 3 million had showed up in the right precincts, Obama would be headed to the history books.

“3 million super smart conservatives stayed home”

So...it’s the fault of Conservatives? Maybe if the GOP had a CONSERVATIVE candidate, more Conservatives would have voted.

The GOP doesn’t want Conservatives, and we don’t want them.

As for his holiness getting reelected, I’m fine with that. The collapse is going to happen, so it might as well happen sooner rather than later, so we can begin to pick up the pieces and move on.

Never happen.

Yes, congress and the White House spend money like a drunken teenager at the Mall of the Americas, but the metaphor ends where the government idiots can simply steal money from the citizens and call it “taxes” and/or print up as much money as they like.

Plus, they can delude themselves and each other by saying it’s “for the good of the country” when what they really mean is that it’s for the good of my constituents, and buys me their corrupted votes.

Well, yes, I think it is the fault of conservatives that did not vote. I understand that they did not like Romney. Neither did I. But, the math is undeniable. We have Obama because three million conservative pubbies didn’t go vote.

Notwithstanding all of the foregoing, I agree with you totally on your last sentence!

Thomas Paine said it best..........”I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace”.

Republicans allow an illegal president, while running a government without a budget for years now...

Yeah I have a lot of hope they are on opposite sides, NOT!

Its all dog and pony show, while they steal what is left after they emptied the treasury and enslaved us in tremendous debt.

Rats picking the bones.

Treason, and light years beyond Grand Theft.

No, sorry, if 500,000 voted for Romney, 750,000 more would have voted for Obama.

When the republican precincts report record lines and the democratic ones report short lines and the vote still goes for Obama, we have a demockery.

The Democrats are coming out with guns blazing, threatening to strip the Republicans in the senate of power, demanding huge tax increases, letting the Bush tax cuts expire, and demanding that the Republicans raise the debt ceiling.

Why? For the simple reason that the Democrats *understand* that two years is a long time.

The Republicans are acting like abused co-dependents trailing along with their abusive spouse, using the bad logic that, “Unless I do what he wants me to do now, he will *really* beat the hell out of me later.”

Sorry, Republicans. The Democrats have been beating you for years, while you have cowered before them and done what they said, always hoping that they will stop beating you.

Guess what? Unless you stand up to them now, in the next elections you are going to be thrashed to within an inch of your lives. And because you have been such weaklings, you will actually deserve it.

The American people *hate* sniveling, spineless losers. You can’t “make up” to the American people by begging them, whining to them, that if you only had political power, you would have a spine.

Nope. You had your chance. You controlled the presidency, and both houses of congress, and still you acted like an abused spouse to the Democrats. Always willing to “cross the aisle”, to do what they wanted to do, to empower them to belittle you and tear you down.

To take away from you that which you said you wanted.

So, here it is, one last chance. Your weakling liberal Republican presidential candidate failed, so now it is up to the house of representatives.

Your one last chance. If you refuse to give the Democrats what they want, they will threaten to beat you, and the MSM will hold their coat. But if you can hang tough for two or three months of abuse, suddenly everything will change.

After that short time, the pressure on you will abate, and the Democrats will be getting pressure like you cannot believe. All their followers will demand that they *do* something. That they make you, the Republicans, obey.

But if you hold firm, there is nothing the Democrats can do to force you to give them what they want. They will finally get what’s coming to them, ten times, a hundred times worse than what you have gotten.

And like the bullies they are, when slapped around by the “big kids”, the Democrats will show their cowardice, their yellow bellies, and they will beg you, plead with you, for your cooperation.

And you will then have a chance to have a spine again.

The RATS that voted for Bamy do not understand anything but what affects them personally. The fiscal cliff, debt ceilings, unfunded liabilities, the Fed reserve print press are Conservative jargon meant to tarnish their savior. They have their Obama phones and other government subsidies so Conservatives are just mean spirited.

Only when inflation rears it’s ugly head will they begin to realize that something is amiss and they will want it solved ASAP; only it will be too late in a lot of ways. That is why Reagan won in landslide in 1980.

Inflation is inevitable, given the current bunch in power, so the sooner we have inflation the sooner the ship of state will turn back to the Right. It is a bitter pill to swallow but.............
