Once again, we are being
- Lied to by the House of Reps.
- Lied to by the Senate.
- Lied to by His Presidence.
- Lied to by all of the above.
- They are all ignorant fools who really think they are doing some good here.
As per usual, the cuts are phony "not-cuts". Let's see. Obama gets a $900 Billion increase in the Debt Ceiling in exchange for $900 Billion plus $100 Billion in spending cuts. That is itself sounds good, doesn't it. But, oh, wait. These cut are over ten years. Ok. Let's see. The House is elected for two years. And the Senate is elected for six years but only one third at a time (every two years). His Presidence is elected for four years and can only be re-elected for six more. (This is the more he is now running for with this early start he is getting now). So let's see how we are doing. In ten years, the House will be re-elected four times in ten years. All three thirds of the Senate will be re-elected one or two more times. His Presidence will be long gone whether or not he is re-elected in 2012.
Do you really think any of these guys (and gals) are even going to remember (if they are still alive) what happened this year in 2021? I have trouble remembering what I had for breakfast last Tuesday, and I am younger than at least a third of them.
I haven't even, at this point, mentioned what they have done to change "the course of the Washington status quo. Let's see: Stimulus, more stimulus, even more stimulus. Greed, half truths, non-commitment all seem to get the better of them all (if there ever was a better) when they get to Washington, DC. Maybe it is something in the water.
The long and short of it is, when they voted down "Cap, Cut and Balance", we were all doomed no matter what else they try to "slink" past us. At this point, my good nature has lost its way, and it can't find me.
