The time has come for a burning season in the grassroots

Let's talk figures: if you ran your household with $21,000 in income, but you spent $38,200, and you had a household debt of $140,000, do you think your creditors would give you a debt limit increase?  If you ran your business with $210,000 in revenues, and expenditures of $382,000, with $1.4 million in debt, your creditors wouldn't give you the time of day, especially if you didn't have a plan in place to deal with your spending.

That's our parliament of crony prostitutes in a nutshell. Two years ago, when the debt dealing started, they were running up $3.82 trillion in spending against $2.1 trillion in revenues against $14 trillion in debt. That debt is now $17 trillion, and the boldest recommendation they can make is a 1% reduction in spending.
If you ran your business in a way that resulted in a complete shutdown due to your inability to talk to your partners, and you laid off your employees while the issues were being ironed out, would you give your employees a raise upon their return?  That's what our parliament of crony puppets did, in addition to the $174,000 they gave to Sen. Frank Lautenberg's $56 million widow, and the $2.9 billion they gave to Mitch McConnell and Dick Durbin for their dam.

We've been giving these crony prostitutes our votes and our money for decades, and they've only piled up more debt and more government.  They've given us an NSA that treats us like members of al Qaeda, an IRS that targets our political groups to sideline us in elections, and an economy where success depends on political favors rather than merit.  And to top it all off, these crony puppets betrayed us by blaming us for a shutdown they authored. They called us crazy extremists.

They want to rip out our heart and soul, and replace it with cynicism. They want us to give up, to be discouraged by this.  Well, we're not discouraged, we're enraged. It's time to channel that rage into 2014.  The crusade to take America back begins today, and we know we have just 18 allies in the Senate. It's time to send in reinforcements and take out the crony lapdogs.

The "Law of the Land" fallacy

To all of those that make the 'law of the land claim' in regards to ACA:

  • If it is the law of the land, how do you explain away the Executive branch missing 41 of 82 deadlines that it detailed?
  • How do you justify their use of Executive fiat, in direct violation of the the Law and the Constitution, to decide to wave the Employer Mandate for one year?
  • How do you justify the Office of Personnel Management determining that it could grant a 71% subsidy to Congress and Congressional Staffers, even though the law specifically directs Congress to take part in the Obamacare exchanges and their salaries exceed the limits to qualify them for subsidies? 

 The Supreme Court didn't determine the Constitutionality of ACA. They rewrote it to make it Constitutional, acting in violation of the Constitution by exercising legislative powers that are granted to Congress.

One step further:

  • Slavery was Law.
  • Segregation was Law
  • Prohibition was a Constitutional Amendment
  • Women prohibited from voting was law
  • Japanese Internment was law
  • The Immigration laws Being ignored by President Obama Are laws
  • Defense of Marriage Act was settled Law.

A bad law is a bad law.  Just because it's law doesn't mean that we have to be stuck with it forever!



His very own words, proving for a fact, that he is a liar. It amazes me that the Republican Party never mentions it, the News Media never mentions it. It's almost like they themselves are part of it. There's a lot I would like to say here but I won't. I'll let Obama tell the story in his own words.

 Obama's Own Words:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

 Compare it to what he's saying today. Makes it pretty simple doesn't it?
