The March to Anarchy
NY Times ^ | Sept 18, 2013 | NYT Editorial Board

Posted on 09/18/2013 8:13:11 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Until now, the only House Republicans pushing for a government shutdown and debt crisis were a few dozen on the radical right, the ones Senator, Harry Reid, the majority leader, referred to as “the anarchists.” On Wednesday, however, the full Republican caucus, leadership and all, joined the anarchy movement, announcing plans to demand the defunding of health care reform as the price for keeping the government open past Sept. 30.

The decision means that a government shutdown next month is now much more likely. In the past, shutdown threats were averted because Republican leaders were willing to negotiate on spending issues, though the spending cuts that resulted were often harmful to important programs. But the health law is not negotiable for President Obama and the Democrats. By choosing this as their live-or-die issue, Republicans are driving straight toward the brink and removing the brake pedal.

What is worse, the House leadership also announced plans to make a series of demands of the White House in exchange for raising the debt ceiling in mid-October, threatening a government default if they don’t get their way.

Now there they go again. Lies and projection. Perhaps the vaunted NYT Editorial Board should have a little talk with their Marxist dear leader. He's the one threatening government shutdown if the congress abides by the constitution and the will of the people. He's the lawless anarchist. It's my way or the highway with Obama, the petulant child.

If the NYT Times editorial board hates it, it must be good for Americans.

Funny how they redefine terms for their own benefit. Anarchism is a left-wing ideology.

Okay. I give up. Where's the problem in that?

the anarchy movement

Oh brother. I wish the left would make up their minds. Are conservatives fascists who want to control everybody's behavior, or anarchists who believe in no government?

Only a leftist could believe both things at once, because they have mastered the art of Doublethink.

Meanwhile, according to the New York times, the only alternative to totalitarian leftism is anarchy.

All I can say to these people is:

This paragraph is the crux of the stupidity of the MSM! They state that Obama and the Democrats are "not negotiable" on ObamaCare, but it is the Republicans who are driving us over the cliff with no brakes! I want to just SCREAM at the stupidity of the writers, but even the more so at the readers who believe this pap! IDIOTS! All of 'em!

If the Democrats in a state house leave the state in order to prevent a vote, it’s a principled stand. If Republicans refuse to fund Obamacare, it’s anarchy.

Seems to me the government shuts down now at least two days a week, except for holiday weeks when it is three out of seven days when it is shut down. Whats a few more days.

...And what’s with this obamaism of defaulting on our obligations? At best that is a bold face deception, at worse an outright lie. So nothing new there. I’m afraid Mr Obama is the finest example of the worst of the black race. And everything said about him before the first election has been proven beyond any doubt IMHO

I’m an anarchist (specifically, an anarcho-capitalist.) I can assure you (and everyone else) that no member of the House or the Senate is even close to being an anarchist. Perhaps we anarchists should sue Senator Reid and the NYT for defamation by falsely associating us with any members of Congress?

Anarchism is a left-wing ideology.

It can be either left or right. Left-anarchism rejects the right to property (many variations, but all oppose private ownership of the 'means of production.') Right anarchism accepts the right to own any and all physical objects. Right anarchism goes by various names, such as anarcho-capitalism, market anarchism, propertarian anarchism, agorism, voluntaryism, etc.

Back in the ‘60s when I was in high school the New York Times was considered a credible, even top-notch, newspaper. The thing has been run by foot-stomping children for the last few decades, and now is viewed by most normal humans as a liberal laughingstock. I sometimes wonder what Bill Safire would think of his old employer if he was still around.

An-archy, meaning without government. I’d say we have about $3.5 trillion a year to go before that happens.

He didn't; the tiny pinto and cajones he brought with him to congress were put into a vice by the eeevil TEA PARTY people and slowly squeezed until he cried for mercy.
I just pray the real conservatives in congress keep turning the handle of the vice until the people are served,not the political corruptocrats.

Do you want a definition of anarchy?

How about a Senate that refuses to do its basic Constitutional duty to pass a budget, forcing a series of continuing funding resolutions in its place to keep the government going, because it doesn't want to go on the record for or against anything, and would prefer to have the weapon of continuing resolution fights in order to beat the Republicans in the media than do what's right for the People?

If the NY Slimes hates it, then there’s a very good chance that I’ll really like it.

I haven’t been a fan of this tactic to say the least. Not because I dislike the tactic, I just don’t think that the gop has the desire or the courage to follow through. Especially when they’re quiet supporters of boehnercare in the first place.

But now that the NY Slimes is weighing in.... gosh, I gotta admit that their opinion carries a lot of weight.

But the health law is not negotiable for President Obama and the Democrats.

We need to see about that.

By choosing this as their live-or-die issue, Republicans are driving straight toward the brink and removing the brake pedal.

Bring. It. On.

Leave it up to Zero and Dingy Harry to shut down the government by blocking a perfectly fine, ObamaCare-less CR.

Life in the United States will be that much the better without the government. Gee, can't tour the White Hut after the shutdown? Well, guess what, you couldn't before, either (since the dreaded Sequester). But who noticed?

We've got Zero over a barrel. The sheeple (plural of LIV) aren't liking ObamaCare. Opinion polls show it conclusively.

Shutting down the government has little in the way of real-world effects, but hey! Maybe it's worth it to cancel ObamaCare and change the 29-hour week back into the 40+-hour week of yesteryear.

It's all about take-home pay: Is it better under Zero, Pelosi, and Dingy Harry? Or was it better with the GOP running things?
