Obama: Pass My Budget or Suffer More ‘Pain’
Cybercast News Service ^ | April 27, 2013 | Craig Bannister

Posted on 04/29/2013 11:31:41 AM PDT by Olog-hai

In his weekly address, Pres. Obama threatened Americans with more sequester “pain” if they don’t convince Congress to pass his budget.

First, Obama exploited the sequester’s effect on children, the elderly, and airline travelers …

And, there’s more pain on the horizon, Obama warned: “These cuts are scheduled to keep falling across other parts of the government that provide vital services for the American people.” …

Yep, this is what he’s doing with the sequester, Chester...

Making strategic cuts where it hurts the folks the most.

Wouldn’t you refer to that as... “evil”?

It’s the Chicago way. Never give up, and anything you have to do to get your way, is fair game.

Didn't he turn in his budget a couple of months late, long after the House and even the Senate (yes, this year even the Senate had a budget) presented their proposed budgets.

He's like a kid turning in his Civil War diorama long when the history teacher is about to wrap up World War I and then warning the teacher he better get a good grade on it.

Is this not an impeachable offense? Our President is threatening us. Is he not violating his Oath of Office to PROTECT US, not THREATEN us?

He fancies himself as the leader, so, let him lead. Let’s start sequestering his benefits like his life long retirement fund for only 8 years of golfing.

And, while we’re at it, let’s reduce his health insurance by imposing monthly payments out of pocket with $5,000/per year, per person deductible.

Or actually, make him pay the same percentage as the average tax payer does...based on income. 5 grand is pocket change to him.

And since he’s on the welfare dole, no outside income allowed. Every ‘gift’ he receives he must pay a gift tax on. That’s right around 50% isn’t it?

Yea...let the leader be the first to eat his own fruit. Then let’s see how long it lasts.

Congress do your duty! Restore the constitutional limits on government!

Defund the unconstitutional EPA!
Defund the unconstitutional energy department!
Defund the unconstitutional education department!
Defund the unconstitutional commerce department!
Defund the unconstitutional labor department!
Defund the unconstitutional agriculture department!
Defund the unconstitutional housing department!
Defund all of the unconstitutional federal welfare programs!

Defund ALL federal meddling into functions clearly reserved to the states and people, ie, all functions not specifically enumerated and delegated to the federal government by the constitution!!

Because the "take it to the people" rabble-rousing and brow beating approach worked so well for him on the job's bill last year and his gun control bill this year....

“reforms our tax code to close wasteful special interest loopholes; and invests in things”

In other words, “raise taxes and spend more!”

Apparently he’s already forgotten that most Americans are aware he’s the author of the memo instructing agency heads to make the cuts as painful as possible. Nice of him to admit that was a dumb idea, though.

The GOP led House has had how many opportunities to DEFUND this items? I count at least 6 or 7, but no they cower under their desks with their leader making pronouncements such as this.......

Boehner: House Will Fund Obamacare in CR; Won't Risk 'Shutting Down the Government'

I am not sure about anyone else but I am through with the GOP.

Speaking of which, I was curious about the qualifications for supreme court justices and googled it.

The first answer listed was:

What qualifications are needed to become a US Supreme Court justice?

Answer:

There are no constitutional requirements for becoming a US Supreme Court justice; however, the President usually considers the recommendation and evaluation of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary. The ABA lists the following suggested minimum criteria for nomination to the US Supreme Court

The American Bar Association?

Class, I think we’ve found our problem!!

The main qualification should be one who passionately defends the constitution of the US and passionately defends our God-given unalienable rights and passionately enforces the constitutional restrictions on government and to hell with the ABA which is an association advocating for the advancement of *cough cough* the legal profession, ie, ambulance chasers! And to hell with precedent!! It’s not that difficult to interpret the plainly written text and original intent of the constitution!!

Sarah for Chief Justice!!

Obama should study up on peasant rebellions throughout history. Or maybe he has and thinks he’s so damn smart he can control the masses no matter what he does? No one is that smart... or lucky.

Honest to God, as much as I love Sarah, I would rather have you Jim. I just re-read the story of Crockett being schooled by a farmer for voting to give $20,000 to help the folks in the Georgetown fire. He thought he was doing the right thing. He was a very honest man.

The farmer let him know that he would not vote for him again because that money was taken from hard working people against their will. Charity should be up to the people themselves.

That conversation changed Crockett's thoughts on the Constitution for the rest of his life. Sarah Palin may be smarter than you and have more experience, but that farmer let Crockett learn that simple adherence to the U.S. Constitution, as written, was understood by those Americans with steadfast principle. He agreed and apologized for his wrongful vote.

You my FRiend, fill the bill of that farmer.

His name was Horatio Bunce. I hope you've read the story. You are my Horatio Bunce along with a very small handful of other FReepers. I pinged onyx to this post because I respect her opinions on many things, this especially. She supports Sarah as do I. You'd be better on the SCOTUS.

Well, thank you very much, kind sir. But afraid I’d be a bull in a China shop. I’d be breaking every rule and precedent ever set by the court and would actually apply the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, etc, guided by the Word of God and the original intent of the Founders in each and every case coming before me or in which I could assert myself.

Proponents of big government would hate me. It’s a ten minute job or less to see if their pet statist/socialist government project is enumerated and delegated to the federal government by the constitution or is reserved to the states and the people.

Likewise, proponents of abortion “rights,” homosexual “rights,” gun control, etc, would hate me. It’s clearly defined by our founders that our unalienable rights are granted to us individually by God our creator, and that our government was designed for a moral people of free-will that follow His law.

No, you do not have to be a Christian or Jew to live in or vote in America, but you also do not have the right to NOT be offended if God is mentioned in public by a citizen or even a member of government. And government does not have the constitutional power to block a citizen or group of citizens or a person in government or even a government body his or their unalienable God-given constitutional rights to the free exercise religion.

In other words, if a government body, such as the congress, for example, or a state legislature or city council wishes to begin its day with prayer, that is perfectly constitutional. Those who object can plug their ears or quietly leave the room. Likewise, if a school wishes to begin its day with prayer, that’s its business and right. If a school or city wishes to celebrate Christmas or display a nativity scene or put on a Christmas play, that’s its business and right and those who do not wish to participate can simply avoid it. But they do not have the right or constitutional power to ban it or have it banned! The ACLU can KMA!

They’d run me out on a rail within a year.

Btw, I do remember reading about Crockett standing against federal welfare, but did not remember it was taught to him by a farmer. Thanks.
