  • Disgusting Compromise on $956B Farm Bill; In Spite of Massive Howls, No Actual Cuts in Food Stamps

    MISH'S Global Economic Trend Analysis ^ | 1/29/2014 | Mike Shedlock (Mish)
    Proving that neither party really wants to do anything about escalating costs of anything, in typical D.C. compromise action, the House Passes $956B Farm Bill in a bipartisan vote. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) all voted for the bill. Democrats are howling over minuscule cuts in SNAP (food stamps). For example, an inane headline on the Daily Koz reads House passes food stamp-slashing farm bill. Supposedly there will be $8.6 billion in devastating food stamp cuts. Even if that happens it is less than a 1% cut in an...

    In Mexico, people have been successfully fighting back against oppression, beating back drug cartels and now starting war against govt criminals in league with the cartels. This makes it a bit easier for the not-so-bad bad guys to turn things around and join against the still-bad guys. To see how the govt reacted to the success of the citizen defense groups:

    Otherwise we could have a non-strict-Constitutionalist placed on the supreme court. What would Ron Paul have said about yesterday's ruling? The answer - it no longer matters. All the people who went into hair pulling mode over Ron Paul now have to examine the guy they support. There is only one. Highlander style. The battlefield has changed. Romney will save us? Is that it? I'm from the Govt. I'm here to help you. Bend over and say "ronpaul".

    In Clinton's first two years he governed as though his election was a mandate intead of a split decision. The Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and used that power to follow an overreaching strategy. "We won. Bend over and take your medicine." They proceeded to ignore the rule of holes and almost made it to China by the time 1994 rolled around. Then the tectonic plates shifted and the people fired a bunch of the clowns that participated in the Bubba madness. Gingrich, Armey, DeLay, Kasich and the rest of the team lined up to shove the failed Clinton...

    When we retake the majority, who do you want to lead the GOP in the House and Senate? Understanding that this is largely a measure of who wants to be a leader (not all the peeps we like want the headaches that come with leadership) and who is persistant enough to get what they want, who do you want to see step up and take the reigns? I want my party to reflect my beliefs. The current leadership does not voice my beliefs and are not even close to voicing my burning anger at the corruptocrats that inhabit DC. Boehnor...

    Senator Cornyn was on the Mark Davis show this morning and addressed the Charlie Crist endorsement and the Supreme Court nomination. Senate race in FL: He said nothing new, same old same old argument about trying to win the seat rather than going for who is the more conservative. Mentioned he wanted to avoid a conservative circular firing squad. Supreme Court: He said the comments by Rush and Newt were "over the line" and not helpful.

    Prior to the election I voiced my concerns about McCain. Most took it in the spirit it was offered - McCain got my vote although not enthusiastically. I honestly had reservations over his attacks on the free market (greed lingo) and his willingness to scold conservatives at every turn while giving the benefit of doubt to liberals. Here is my McCain take: he was a hero and for that I thank him for his effort. But today and for the last 20+ years he is simply a politician. He turned out to be a guy who thrives on throwing his...

    I can't wait to vote for Sarah Palin. John McCain on the other hand, my vote could wait forever. But I will dutifully pull the lever for Mr. Reduced Nanny State not as a vote of approval but a vote against Mr. Osama More Freedom Taker. You see folks, this isn't a question of how many freedoms are under attack, its a question of where they start. The first thing I will do Nov. 5th is call my congress critter and tell him to play 'stop the insanity". No matter who wins. What motivates you to vote this time around?

    Regular readers of Mullings know that I do not - not-subscribe to the theory that the national press corps awakens every morning to a national conference call to discuss how best to put the screws to the Republican Party generally, and to its candidates specifically. Regular readers also know that I DO subscribe to the theory that reporters are like basketball referees - they aren't lying and they aren't cheating, but the home team almost always gets the close call under the basket.
