“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”
“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”
My Friends and Fellow Alice Cooper Fans:
Nah, I don’t think there are many Alice Cooper fans out there, he of the garish make-up and macabre stage shows. (Though “Vinny de Boss” is one of the nicest and most generous people you would ever have the pleasure to meet.)
But the other day listing to the Winner of the “Triple Crown of Lying” (Highest Lying Percentage, Most Lies and Most Pelosi Batted In) I could not believe my ears. I imagined myself talking to a Biff-Bot who would be cheering at the monumental mendacity and I am saying “Hey, Stupid! What are you, stupid?”
Then the Alice Cooper album “Hey Stoopid” came to mind.
When I was a kid, my Unk used to say “Smarten Up, don’t be so smart! What are you, a wise guy?” He would say this either as a joke or an admonishment. But when I was maybe 5 or 6 I asked, naively, “Unk, how can I smarten up but not be so smart? And how does that make me a wise guy?” For some reason, he became cross, as if I should know better. “Unk, I am 5 years old, I was not exactly writing my post-doctoral paper on string theory.”
I supposed what I am trying to say is that even a very young age, I was a pain in the a$$. But, it also proved that I actually listened to what people said.
And that is why I screamed “Hey Stoopid!’ at the radio and Liberals in general. Are they so fluking stupid that they have ears to hear but do not listen? Who am I kidding? Of course, they are zombies both political and patriotic.
Stepping up to the plate, Biff dusted off his cheap suit and said: “I don’t know why the Republicans are making such a big deal over raising the debt ceiling! Raising the debt ceiling DOES NOT ADD ONE DOLLAR TO THE DEBT! What are they afraid of?” (Nervous chuckle.)
This harks back to “Smarten Up, don’t be so smart!” You see, he IS correct in the statement that raising the debt ceiling in and of itself does not add a dollar to do so. But these idjits with their teeny brains of mush did not ask why or have crossed their minds “Well, if it does not add a dollar, WHY do you need it raised?”
Because you know, I know and even Midnight the Wonder Dog knows that the moment the debt ceiling is raised, he will challenge it with pelosi spending!
But, and the man truly is a saint, he has a plan to end the bickering and animus! He wants us all to get along and never ever have to have a nasty debate on the debt ceiling again!
(‘Scuse me as I wipe this little tear from my eye….)
Yes, Biffus Magmus’ big giant idea (and I have to admit, it would end the debates!) is to do away with the debt ceiling!
Yes, let’s give the racist Marxist redistributionist a BLANK CHECK forever and ever amen!
And the proles, tools and pinions clapped as if he found the cure for cancer!
But, wait, there is more!
Boy Blunder was explaining that we HAD to pay our bills! It was our duty to pay our bills! “WE’s gotsta pays our bills!”
And he is right. We HAVE to pay our BILLS.
We do not have to go shopping or out to dinner.
He made one of the more obtuse non-sequiturs of all time (aka: “a lie”) to “prove” his “point.” He said that if someone bought a car a few years ago, they could not decide to stop paying the note every month because they did not want to pay the note. And THAT is why he needs a blank check. (I hope he does not get any ideas to give free cars to po’peeps!) I swear, I thought I heard orgasmic sounds by those fooled by this chump.
The only thing he said that made sense is that if you PUIRCHASE something, you must PAY for it. That makes sense and is fair and square.
If you want to give your kids a thousand dollars for their birthdays’ and you are flat broke, you have no moral obligation to beg, borrow or steal that money. That is not an obligation, that is a gift.
Even in a shut down or extreme austerity, paying our military is an obligation. Paying most gov’t employees is an obligation. (I would suspend pay to the legislative and executive branches.) Re-paying social security is an obligation. (After all, it IS our money!) Paying interest on our debt is an obligation. And there are a few others. Very few.
Paying for Biff-fones, is a gift. Paying for most assistance (MOST, not All and we have talked about this) is a gift. Most pelosi programs created to buy votes every elected are not just a gift, but a criminal bribe.
Then there are the useless departments and secretariats such as education, energy, health and human sacrifices, DEC, EPA and until we get a REAL AG, the D of J, and a few others.
Do understand, there is not a stack of cash sitting around gathering dust from last year. Cash flow is fluid. VERY fluid.
What is not mentioned is that the treasury has a few hundred billion coming in every month from taxes, levies, taxes, fines, taxes and so on.
In other words, there IS enough cash coming in EVERY month to satisfy the responsibilities and a little left over.
(SIDEBAR: One of my guys, Jim, wanted to take an extended vacation. While we have contingencies for regular time off, he needed an extra week. I asked him who was going to cover for him the extra week when he was away and he had an answer. A BAD answer. He said “It is no problem, Joe can do my job as well as his.” When I asked him if he wished to reconsider his answer he said “No, Why?” I said that if Joe can do your job as well as his own, they I did not really need both of you, now did I? He got the point.)
So, taking the last two paragraphs into consideration, Biff is AFRAID of “shutting down the gov’t”, even if it is not really “shutting down” and even though it does not need to because there is enough cash coming in on a regular basis.
Back in the 60s and 70’ there was a hippie saying “What if that gave a war and nobody came?” Wow, dude, that is like so heavy, man, groovy vibe, bro.
Borrowing that, “what if we ‘shut down’ the gov’t and nothing changed?”
Here is Biff crying, lying, hat in hand, saying that he just needs a little ol’ blank check to tide him over till no one has any cash.
And, poof, as if by magic, he did not need it after all!
It is a shell game, it is a canard, it is a crime and it has happened before and it will happen again. The difference is Biff has raised lying to an art form.
There is a pic of Biff on the web sitting at a desk, reflecting and the caption reads: “Even I can’t believe what they are letting me get away with!”
His problems will just be beginning if we can stop the health skare scheme, “shut down” the euphemistically called “non-essential agencies” and the Earth does not slide off of its axis and hurtle towards the Sum.
But wait, he was not done yet!
Remember when he was running the first time? Remember the lies from that campaign (some 976 have been documented thus far?) Remember: “I will reduce the deficit in half by the end of my first term!”
Let’s see how well he did on that promise: The deficit was something north of $9,000,000,000,000. Today it is almost $17,000,000,000,000. And when he finally leaves office it is expected to be OVER $20,000,000,000,000.
So, if my math is correct, he “reduced” the deficit by negative-eight-billion dollars. (Do not get excited, Liberals, that means he GREW the debt by $8,000,000,000,000. So, that is a $12,500,000,000,000 difference.
But, he trotted out that old lie. He said, again, that he would cut the debt by half by next year.
He has a better chance of walking on water.
You see, projecting out one year, it would take EVERY DOLLAR generated by every business, company, enterprise and earned by EVERY citizen to be confiscated to retire that much of the debt!
Even if he changes his tact and say he was not talking about the debt but the budget. OK, let’s see… the estimated deficit for FY 2008 (the last year before he screwed the pooch) was estimate to be about $239,000,000,000 and wound up being $454,000,000,000. (This is when W went off the reservation.)
OK, let’s give the kid a pass. All’s he has to do is cut the 2008 deficit by half, and we can use the high number.
That means we should expect a projected deficit of $227,000,000,000.
Let me check the numbers for next year….
Oooooppssss… It is PROJECTED to be over $1,000,000,000,000.
Now, factor in heath skare (the ten year GAO projection has quadrupled in the past two years) and Lord knows what over pelosi-sandwiches he will foist on us . Not only do we have a recipe for disaster but apparently a president who is the bottom of the class in math.
And, still, the crowd cheered.
And Biffus Magnus smiled.
Because no one fact checks him and when we do and call him the liar he is, we are called racist.
And the media are complicit.
And they will he called to answer for their sins in a few short years.
And if you think THIS is bad, wait for it…. The Muse is franticly throwing numbers and facts at me…. We shall save that for next time, kids. (For Liberals: “facts” are those things one can prove, that Biff twists and about which you have no clue.)
No sir, no sir, don’t like at all…. But you will see next week.
