How The Worm Has Turned

Obama WormOne of things that amazes me is the Liberals’ and Progressives’ quasi-religious belief that Obama is a man of principles. It beggars my credulity each and every time they espouse it.

From what I can see, Obama has no principles. He takes whatever stance he thinks will benefit him right now, caring not at all if his position of the day is diametrically opposed to his position of of yesterday.

A very topical case in point is the unresolvable conflict between Obama’s position on raising the debt ceiling in 2006 vs. his position on doing the same today.

Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem.

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 U.S. Government can’t 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.

Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is “trillion” with a “T.” That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion.

Numbers that large are sometimes hard to understand. Some people may wonder why they matter. Here is why: This year, the Federal Government will spend $220 billion on interest. That is more money to pay interest on our national debt than we’ll spend on Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. That is more money to pay interest on our debt this year than we will spend on education, homeland security, transportation, and veterans benefits combined. It is more money in one year than we are likely to spend to rebuild the devastated gulf coast in a way that honors the best of America.

And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on. Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans — a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.

But we are not doing that. Despite repeated efforts by Senators Conrad and Feingold, the Senate continues to reject a return to the commonsense Pay-go rules that used to apply. Previously, Pay-go rules applied both to increases in mandatory spending and to tax cuts. The Senate had to abide by the commonsense budgeting principle of balancing expenses and revenues. Unfortunately, the principle was abandoned, and now the demands of budget discipline apply only to spending. As a result, tax breaks have not been paid for by reductions in Federal spending, and thus the only way to pay for them has been to increase our deficit to historically high levels and borrow more and more money. Now we have to pay for those tax breaks plus the cost of borrowing for them. Instead of reducing the deficit, as some people claimed, the fiscal policies of this administration and its allies in Congress will add more than $600 million in debt for each of the next 5 years. That is why I will once again cosponsor the Pay-go amendment and continue to hope that my colleagues will return to a smart rule that has worked in the past and can work again.

Our debt also matters internationally. My friend, the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, likes to remind us that it took 42 Presidents 224 years to run up only $1 trillion of foreign-held debt. This administration did more than that in just 5 years. Now, there is nothing wrong with borrowing from foreign countries. But we must remember that the more we depend on foreign nations to lend us money, the more our economic security is tied to the whims of foreign leaders whose interests might not be aligned with ours.

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.

I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.

— Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
March 16 2006

That particular Congress was debating whether or not to raise the debt ceiling to $9,000,000,000,000,000. The federal government’s debt ceiling is currently $16,700,000,000,000, $7,700,000,000,000 more than it was when Obama was against raising it. That’s an 85.5% increase in 7 short years. Also, under Obama the increase in the debt ceiling has been more than the total debt ceiling of the 43 presidents before him.

Oh how the worm has turned in a few, short years – and Obama bears far more resemblance to a worm than he does he does a man, being only only a crude and cruel mockery of the latter. Then raising the debt ceiling was tantamount to treason; now do doing so is, according to Obama, tantamount to treason. The difference being solely the allegiance and race in question.

I will point out that worms belong either in the ground or on hooks. They never belong befouling the homes or businesses of Man. They certainly don’t belong in the White House.

Of course, in 2006 then-Senator Obama was speaking to a POTUS who was both Republican and White. He was at that time speaking to a man who was his enemy and the enemy of his core constituency. Hence, it is natural for the boy to rant against a request to raise the federal government’s credit line just as it would have been, and still is, natural for the boy to rant and rail against anything and everything Republicans and Whites do or say. It’s not a matter of conviction or principle on Obama’s part; it’s a matter of ideological and racial angst, fear, and hate.

Now it’s Obama calling for yet another increase in the debt ceiling and, as he’s both a Democrat and identifies as a Black – in truth, the boy’s a mulatto, but he’s rejected his White heritage except for the money and stability – so it must good, right, and proper for him to do so and any dissent must be racist.

No. Obama doesn’t have principles. The boy’s only got himself and his narcissistic delusions. He’ll say and do anything to further the image he’s projected of- and for himself.

Because They Care

Obama The Liar-in-ChiefThe Obama Regime and their Liberal sycophants want both the shutdown of large parts of the federal government to end and there to be no doubt about- or argument over once again raising the Federal Government’s debt ceiling because they care so much about the country and we, the People…or so they’ll claim whenever foolishly given the hand-out of an opportunity to do so.

This sounds good. It sounds exactly like what a POTUS should be thinking and saying during situations like these. It’s quite a shame that it’s just another of the boy’s incessant lies.

The truth of what the Obama and his coterie in the White care about has been revealed to be somewhat different than those oft-repeated claims.

On Oct. 4, a senior official in the Obama administration told The Wall Street Journal that the administration doesn’t care about how long the government remains shut down.

“We are winning,” the official said. “It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts because what matters is the end result,” the source added.

And that is the truth of it. Neither Obama nor the Democrats in general care about Americans or the American people. All they care about is victory – not even in this standoff, but in the 2014 and 2016 elections – no matter what the costs to others might be.

It also explains why Obama won’t agree to any legislation that would keep Veterans Affairs and NIH open during the shutdown. And it explains why they shutdown open air memorials that actually cost more tax dollars to close than to keep open.

Tear it down before we tear you and your's down, you worthless, misborn sack of monkey shit.
Tear Down This Wall, Boy!

Sadly for some number of Americans, the Obama Regime thinks that they’re winning by shutting down the government and blaming Republicans, and such callous gamesmanship is their sole criteria for caring about anything. Hence, they’re not likely to change course unless the People rise up and prove to them that they’re not, in fact, winning anything with their insensitivity towards- and despite for both the American people and their constituency, the latter of whom are far more dependent upon government largess.

I wonder if the boy and his Liberals have ever read of the Battle of Cannae and it’s detailing of the dangers of thinking you’re winning because you seem to be moving forward.

And yes, for those few of you who have studied history, I know that this is a somewhat ironic musing since Obama and his Liberals have sacrificed more babies to dark Gods than the Carthaginians ever did.

Know this and know it well the Obama Regime does not care for or about the American people at all. They even only care about their fellow-travelers and minority tenants on election day and act accordingly based upon this mindset. They care about victory and ruling our country for their ends and nothing else.

The filth belongs hanging from a tree, not fouling the White HouseOf course, this is not in any way shock. Years ago the American people learned the hard way that Obama in his cabal: do not watch for our souls; do not believe that they must give account to either us or the God(s); and do not, in the case of 53% of us, care what is unprofitable for us? They broke their covenant immediately upon believing they had come to power.

We, the People must hold these uncaring, would-be tyrants accountable for their failures and malicious misdeeds. The only questions of merit are what forms and within what limits, if any at all, our reprisals should take.


They will be responsible for letting a condition develop in this country which will create a climate that will bring seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something their people never dreamed of. In 2013 and beyond it’s no longer time for the ballot; that season has past after bearing cancerous fruit.

Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉 Remember also, if you love your children, you must know that their children are the enemy as well and must be exterminated.

In Other News…

It is not amazing that politicians come up with exactly the wrong answers to any singular problem or issue. What is amazing is that they seem to always come up with exactly the wrong answers to each and every problem or issue.

Wrong answer usual
In Other News…
Blood Alcohol Limit To Be Raised To Curb Drunk Driving

The editorial cartoon depicted above sums this up perfectly. Raising the federal government’s debt ceiling is no closer to being the correct answer to their spending issues than raising the legal limit for blood alcohol is for reducing incidents of drunk driving.

Be assured though that the debt ceiling will be raised once again – and again, and again, and again until our creditors finally cut us off – because both the waning “mainstream” Republicans and all the Democrats will do anything in their power to make sure Wimpy doesn’t starve.

The late and lamented Ronald Reagan said we had to starve the beast. The problem is that these beasts are like cockroaches and won’t starve until Americans cut their heads off. Even then it might take a while.

The $16 Trillion Child

Truth is stranger and more disgusting than fiction could ever be, at least professionally published fiction where publishers and editors exhibit some control over the quality of content. The fictional character Steve Austin was the Six Million Dollar Man is far less strange and disgusting than factual characterature Obama, The $16 Trillion Child.

Obama - The 16 Trillion Dollar Child
Obama – The $16 Trillion Child

Never in the history of America have so many owed so much because of so few. Worse! That $16 Trillion dollars of national debt is only what Obama and his cabal of spending addicts were allowed to get away with; they wanted, and still want, trillions and trillions dollars more of Americans’ hard-earned wealth.

For The Record

Prior to the misborn, narcissistic, child-in-long-pants that America has been saddle with, his predecessor President Bush Jr. held the record for increasing America’s national debt; a responsible spender the pampered “Dubya” was not and it showed. He successfully used his bully pulpit to add approximately $4.9 trillion to our nations debt over the eight years, two major economic collapses, and two wars of his Presidency.

Obama, however, used a combination of his bully pulpit and a hands-off, lead from behind “leadership” style to outpace President Bush Jr.’s total spending before his first term was ended, with far less excuse and to far, far, far less results.


Oh yes! Truth is stranger and far more horrifying and disgusting than fiction would ever be allowed to be. The $16 Trillion Child is proof of that.

Greek Mythology

All cultures and peoples have their myths and myth cycles. These myths are actually one of the identifying foundations of those separate cultures and peoples and, by and large, they are both good and necessary. Only upon rare occasions do these myths become damaging.

Sadly, in America, one of our myths has become damaging. It might even be lethal to our nation.

Greek Mythology
Greek Mythology – It Couldn’t Happen In America

“It can’t happen here,” is a pernicious belief based on a self-serving and self-deluding perversion of American Exceptionalism. It’s a potentially lethally harmful myth.

Not only can what is happening in Greece and Europe happen in America, it is already happening. We just haven’t hit the bottom … yet.

California and many other of the several States are, essentially, as bankrupt as Greece and are being propped up by the federal government, a government that is so deep in debt that it boggles the mind – and they want to keep borrowing more and fight against any reining in of their profligate spending!

What is the scariest is that one thing really can’t happen here in America. The European Union is predicted to collapse very soon but that can’t happen in America; we have laws against secession and breaking the union. As no federal government that I could imagine would reduce itself, any attempt by the states to break the union for their own survival would lead to civil war.

The upcoming 2102 elections may not be the watershed moment but, if we don’t move swiftly, strongly, and sternly towards fiscal responsibility in this election, we will bring that moment closer – assuming it’s not here or already past – and make correcting the problems that much harder.
