Thanks for the links.
Morning AB, All.
Just got home half hour ago, singing and meeting and greeting.
Seems many folks saw my article in the newspaper, what with the full color picture and half page story....I am quite pleased with myself, forgive my lack of humility.
As always, thank you AB for doing the thread.
Yeah I’m a bit full of myself. The Cape Gazette newspaper is the big newspaper here in Sussex. Way I figger, hell, an unelected bureaucrat sent me a notice that he will tear down my fence as, per the surveys of his builder buddies’ plans, my fence was on my nback neighbors’ land.
Only I had a survey of my own, back from 2003 when I bought my house.
Did this unelected bureaucrat ask me if I had any documentation? Did he give me a number to call for an appeal?
In the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I was tried and found guilty WITHOUT EVEN A DEFENSE!
So I got as much publicity out of this as I could, and, of course, I took action.
Man I got people stopping me in the streets!
Granddaughter’s little girlfriend saw the pic, she says SHE was once in the paper. “Course I didn’t look fabulouso like you do,” and man, you gotta smile at that, huh?
At Finance Council the other night I get a standing ovation. One guy, local Repub party guy, says “We want to know where you had your hair done for the pic.”
Heh. Doggone, I am an activist and look fabulouso doing so, how cool is that?
CAUSE I TOOK A STAND!
CAUSE I GOT UP THE MORNING OF THE PIC AND REMOLDED MY FACE AND FIXED UP THE “DO”.
CAUSE NO UNELECTED BUREAUCRAT WAS GOING TO TEAR DOIWN MY FENCE AND ME AN AMERICAN WITHOUT A TRIAL OF CHANCE TO DEFEND. I mean, at least these people getting beat up by nasty Obama and his minions, DAG AT LEAST OBAMA WAS ELECTED! I’m getting my property destroyed by some weasly unelected bureaucrat....how insulted are they going to make me till I tear them a new one in the rear?
I testified before the county council and did a great job. The fact that I hope a popular column on Delaware politics, well that helped....more on this later....real funny scoops....Exit 82....good scoops I got.
The pubs need me, hand to God.
Cause I’m getting as much attention here in the swamps as the pubs are....just gotta take a stand, comb your hair, man every property owner in Sussex county is on my side....come on guys.....there are causes we ALL SHARE! Even the liberals for God’s sake.
Ok, enough bragging. I got such a scoop on a local politician, hand to God, I got sent a thumb drive in SNAIL MAIL....pics and everything.
I wrote about it at link below.
GIBSON: All right. You have, however, said you would favor an increase in the capital gains tax. As a matter of fact, you said on CNBC, and I quote, "I certainly would not go above what existed under Bill Clinton," which was 28 percent. It's now 15 percent. That's almost a doubling, if you went to 28 percent.
But actually, Bill Clinton, in 1997, signed legislation that dropped the capital gains tax to 20 percent.
GIBSON: And George Bush has taken it down to 15 percent.
GIBSON: And in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased; the government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the revenues went down.
So why raise it at all, especially given the fact that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be affected?
OBAMA: Well, Charlie, what I've said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.
See, they don't CARE if the economy improves or not, they just want to meddle in it for "fairness" sakes. And THEY, not the rest of us, get to say what is fair or not.
When John Boehner was first chosen speaker of the House many Republicans were very happy because he was considered conservative. I am inclined to believe that over the years he has been worn down by lack of support, from within the Rep party, for positions that the GOP elites were uncomfortable with. Now that Boehner has backup from newer members of both the House and Senate he is in a position to take the hard road and still make gains. Good line you quoted. “Welcome back to the fight. This time, I’m sure our side will win.” /> I hope other elected representatives will follow the example of those who are now stepping forth to plant the flag of freedom and independence right on the White House lawn.
Thank you. That was wonderful.
“It must have POLLED well to stupid women!!”
Possibly the largest voting block there is...
Wow Rand Paul to Savannah whatever.
......we bring in 250 billion in tax revenues every month and our interest payment is 20 billion there is no reason we should ever default.
Wow Rand Paul!! just too good.
If this comment gets out all the regimes arguments go away and quickly!!
That and pointing out that funds were proposed to keep the government running , and the real issue is one of fairness namely:
The same type of exemption for individuals as companies
The same requirement for Congress as the American people.
Finalize by stating both of these were never in the “ settled law”
Sen Cruz as ever is the best thing to happen to the U.S. since the Revolutionary war.
I just listened to the very painful interview of Chris Wallace and Jack Lew. Lew actually had the chutzpah to say that America’s economy has been what the world has counted on for strength and stability since 1789.
What is that man smoking?????
Will is on the FNS panel this morning.
He was better on there than I expected. Threw in some ol time movement-type stuff sounding a bit like Buckley (not that anyone actually could, mind you).
Saw him on special report, and he/krauthammer were making a good team straightening out Kirsten Powers talking points, and the inane observations offered by the other guy ?
Clean meaning Comprehensive, All-inclusive
I hate the way our language has been corrupted and usurped by politicians.
The “clean” CR is comprehensive (pork included) All inclusive.
That’s the way I understand it. Mark Levin said sending bills separately was the right way to do it. I don’t know, but I do know the democrats will try every trick/ scam in the book to bankrupt the people.
Congress has the power of the purse.
for now - Mark Levin says Obama has plans to change it. search FR for Mark Levin threads.
Congrats Fish and you are on the right track. There are issues we all agree on and those are the ones to highlight. If you wanted you could turn this into a election position and win a seat.
I have a program that wins elections just like we did by stopping Light Rail in P-Town.
After watching Lew getting his ass kicked by Wallace we now see just how easy it can be.
Just tell the truth and we win they lose.
Couldn’t agree more that would be a great answer.
It’s a good idea. But, I’d do it on an anonymous computer not one sending out where you live.
Yeah for sure. Lew never answered the first question and did it all with his phony smiley face until the end when he seemed to run out of smiles as his butt was by then extremely sore.
I think Mexican and Cuban languages are pretty close, LOL! I don’t know if he speaks espanol or not but his father was Cuban so he will pull some Hispancis our way no doubt.
IT was quite an interview. I was in awe.From Lew’s/axelrods perspective you can’t go into an interview with talking points like his(its all the other sides fault we won’t even negotiate take it or leave it) unless every member of the media is on your side. It simply won’t work. Wallace proved that beyond a doubt.
It’s nice to see the house finally realize they are an equal but SEPARATE branch of the federal government.
Wow thanks so much for this link. I just watched the whole thing and Ted Cruz was awesome!He never missed a beat! Poor Fat candy she’s probably looking for a Dunkin’ donuts right now.
Obama: I Wont Violate The Constitution, Unless You Make Me
(usurp power from congress)
In an alarming development, word comes from Mark Levin and others in Congress that the President is prepping to raise the debt ceiling unilaterally. You know usurping the power of the purse granted solely to Congress. That ladies and gentlemen, is impeachment worthy.
That’s my point. “Clean” sounds like a nice thing to do. If fact, it means Republican capitulation to everything that Obama, etc want.
we have the money and the interest on the debt is miniscule
maybe instead of miniscule a good sellable description would be ‘currently managable’. We don’t want to minimize what we are fighting for.

The first video is the entire interview. But the two shorter videos are segments of the long one.
Rand did a great job explaining the debt .
In the 5 minute video at the end (@3:50 min ) he explains the amount the US takes in as taxes and we would not default. President must pay the interest on the debt because of the legislation called the full faith and credit act.
Rand Paul FULL Meet The Press Interview 10/6/2013 Obamacare & Government Shutdown
Rand Paul Meet The Press Interview On Obamacare & Government Shutdown
Rand Paul Compares Default Warnings to Closing WWII Memorial: ‘This is a Game’
So, government is going to run health & medicine. Does that mean that medicine & hospitals are also going to shut down in a future shutdown??
I say let’s LET BOEHNER know we were proud of him today...
and to HOLD THE LINE STEADY!
Who is the smug smirking commiebabe? Rand is doing a fantastic job of explaining budgeting to her.
Thank you so much for the link.
Just saw it in the comments page and sent Mr. Speaker a quick email!
That’s Samantha Guthrie - been on MSNBC/ NBC for years now.
She was flustered and could not follow the white house talking points - you know how Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe (MSNBC) has a direct email line to the white house.
Peter King Clashes w/ GOP Rep. Tom Graves Over Shutdown Strategy: This Never Had a Chance of Working
GOP Rep. to Rep. Gohmert: We Gave Base ‘False Interpretation’ That ObamaCare Could be Defeated
For the millionth time: It's not "default".
Default is when you don't pay what's due on your debt. There is more than enough revenue to pay interest on the national debt. Only an incompetent president would allow that to happen.
We are simply reaching our borrowing limit. When your credit card gets maxed out, you only go into default when you stop making payments. Obama has hijacked the debate by changing the name. It's a common Alinsky tactic. Please, please, please don't allow that here.
This debate is perfect for the Conservatives since it exposes the liberal cliches for their empty promises. The longer this goes the worse for them.
Obama has hijacked the debate by changing the name. It’s a common Alinsky tactic. Please, please, please don’t allow that here.
I agree they are changing the terms and definitions all the time.
But did you watch the Fox News Sunday Panel segment?
George Will pointed out that Jack Lew said he was not going to prioritize - which means that they (Obama or Lew) don’t intend to pay the interest on the debt. (correct me if needed)
As Rand Paul mentioned in his interview the President must pay the interest on the debt because of the legislation called the full faith and credit act. And there are enough taxes coming in to pay it.
Jack Lew Gets Grilled by Chris Wallace Over The Shutdown & Obamacare - Fox News Sunday 10-6-13
Thanks for the Rand Paul MTP vid. Well worth watching.
Thanks for the link. Did you see how desperate Crowley got near the end. She was shaking her hands, and even stomping her feet. I expected her to start a crying tantrum because Cruz wouldn’t agree with her biased premises.
Oh I dunno. Maybe someday.
I watched Rand Paul too, and Meredith Viera was it?
He ran rings around her!
Or maybe I’m wishful thinking. I do that sometimes.
Rand pointed out that passing an appropriations bill one by one IS HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE DONE!
So the pubs are letting the Dems create a whole new phrase...”CLEAN CR”, all except Cruz and Rand are pointing this out.
Those crap turds.....the political elite I mean. They like those CLEAN CR things. Some pub somewhere should be out and splaining that this so-called CLEAN CR would be like just estimating a year’s living expenses is $30,000, put the money in the account, and keep using for whatever as it comes up.
NO WAIT! We have to track our money by category you say? We need to decide if 10% of our money should be spent on grocery, maybe we can reduce that huge gas bill by changing suppliers. You know, like budgets go, like we all must do, like our businesses do.
Whatever, it ain’t rocket science.
No....instead we got this asshole thing called a CLEAN CR.
Give me two thousand breaks already.
Jonathan Jarvis, so that is the name of Obama’s aschlekker.....
My prayers are with you living in Chicaog...the redeeming feature though is you have GREAT restaurants!!!!!
I noticed that Lew was unwilling to threaten default. He certainly must realize that default only comes when the president refuses to use revenues to pay interest, and that there is more than enough revenue to do that. Lew may have a grain of integrity mixed in there somewhere.
Unfortunately, Obama has none. With Obama's willingness to lie unceasingly, it would be much harder to do that kind of ass kicking. Besides that, Obama has a willing press to cover for him. I don't think the fight will be this easy.
Just wanted to let you know. We have a system we can almost guarantee you will win. It all comes down to GOTV the right voters and you win. You would be a great representative.
Then those companies deserve to suffer a few days. It is time to end this crony capitalism and build a real market.
