Liberalism and Child Play

Spend and Trim D-BombI’m seeing a certain attitude from the left that I usually see in children. I’m talking actions that could be summed up in childhood hit phrases such as “I know you are but what am I”, “It wasn’t me”, and our dear leader’s favorite, “Lalalalala I’m not listening. Lalalalala.”

Thing is, when any grown adult acts this way (especially if they’re a liberal) it’s very difficult to argue with them in any rational way. You can see the difference in the speeches that our respective party leaders have been giving.

Exhibit A:

The President is a great orator to be sure, but behind the teleprompter laced façade of intelligence lays the truth; Obama is a whiny man-child, and not just a whiny man-child, but the kind of whiny man-child that points at his older brother while standing amongst the mess he created and proclaiming “he did it!”

For one, while the budget crisis is looming on us like it’s the “Debt Star” coming to blow up our fancy little civilization, the Republican congress has sent out its best fighters and came up with a bill called Cut, Cap, and Balance to stop and eventually destroy it. This did not please our whiner in chief, since he could not put his name on such a bill that went against the very fiber of his darker political leanings, and you don’t know the power of the dark side. Sorry, I’ll stop the space movie references here.

Boehner talks about it here:

Simply put, the bill would put a lid on government spending, cut the unnecessary fat off our budget, and allow an amendment to be added to the Constitution that essentially forbids the government from spending more money than it has, or takes in. It’s pretty straight forward and simplistic, but it got a veto before it even hit the President’s desk. The defense of the action is the video you see above.

As you can see, in the video, Obama flat our rejects it because…well, short answer: He doesn’t like it. It’s not left enough for one. It was made by a bunch of Republicans after all, namely his chief political rival, Boehner. Where CC&B wanted to cut spending and trim fat, Obama wanted to raise taxes and keep on truckin’ with what he calls a more “…balanced approach”.

“The first approach says, let’s live within our means by making serious, historic cuts in government spending.  Let’s cut domestic spending to the lowest level it’s been since Dwight Eisenhower was President.  Let’s cut defense spending at the Pentagon by hundreds of billions of dollars.  Let’s cut out the waste and fraud in health care programs like Medicare – and at the same time, let’s make modest adjustments so that Medicare is still there for future generations.  Finally, let’s ask the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to give up some of their tax breaks and special deductions.”

 Like that song? It’s become one of his biggest hits behind “It’s Bush’s Fault”.

That approach of his might sound soothing but when you break it down, it’s another left leaning, liberal progressive idea. Take from the rich and give to the government. Weaken the military, and strengthen our social programs. You know how the tune goes.

After that he points his finger at the Republicans and claims they are merely “…kicking the can further down the road.” he lashes out with a dire warning about how the right does things.

“Based on what we’ve seen these past few weeks, we know what to expect six months from now.  The House will once again refuse to prevent default unless the rest of us accept their cuts-only approach.  Again, they will refuse to ask the wealthiest Americans to give up their tax cuts or deductions.  Again, they will demand harsh cuts to programs like Medicare.  And once again, the economy will be held captive unless they get their way.”

…and they’ll kick puppies.

This is projection in the worst form. Members of congress have thrown budget plans at the President multiple times, but each time they are shrugged off and the members who created it are chided and called names. We called this “bullying” when I was a kid.  We keep coming up with the ideas, they keep rejecting them. We provide facts and figures, they provide ideology and new tax hikes.

The only people holding the economy captive are the ones that currently hold the gun, and Obama’s not pulling any triggers. Not at least until he knows that pulling it will make him look real good in the next election, and that means as little Republican, or as much Democrat involvement as possible.

As we approach the climax of this crisis it’s important to note that the bipartisanry of either side is more or less non-existent but each has a different idea in mind when they go that route. Republicans have to stand firm on what they know is a good idea, while the left has to stand firm on what they know is their ideology. They’ll always think the rich must pay and the “have nots” should get what they didn’t earn because it’s only fair.

Well forget that! We can’t allow the left to weasel in anything that really will kick the can down the road, because in the end, if we just hike taxes and continue spending what’s the point of passing any debt budget? They want more of your money or you can’t continue living prosperously as American’s have for generations, and don’t try to come up with anything contrary to the leftist agenda or you’ll be shot down, called names, and made a fool of.

Shorter: Give us your lunch money, or you’ll be sorry.

  1. CUT, CUT, CUT!!! What do Obama, and the Senate think we want? Higher taxes? NO! More regulation? NO! We want a debt-free future. We do not care about turtle crossings, chinese hookers and how much they drink, shrimp running on treadmills, or the all important penis size question… we don’t want the EPA, the TSA, or half of the other initials in our government. We want to keep more of our hard earned dollars in our own pockets. Cut Spending. That is all we expect.

  2. “Put a lid on government spending”
    It’s always important to stress that when the Federal government uses the word “Cut”, they don’t mean it the way you’d assume. Cut, to the Federal Gov, means a reduction in the future rate of spending, not a decrease in the existing amount already being spent (this is why the debt ceiling increase of $2.1t is already spent).
    To cut $2.4 trillion in the next 10 years means that future budgets will not increase from the existing amounts already being spent by that amount. A Super Congress decision to cut Defense spending by 3%, for example, will not reduce the $531b already being spent annually by 3% (or $16b to $515b), it will simply prevent it from increasing to whatever it would have been without the 3% decrease (pick a number out of a hat that suits you)! Of course, with the effects of inflation and the like, these reductions do have major implications but to understand this is to understand why revenues are not the problem, it’s the spending.

  3. I’m at my wits end! I just don’t know how much more I could have done. I continueally contacted Congressmen and Senator’s both mine(I don’t have to worry about mine because they are both conservatives with a long history of fighting against the Marxists), and those from the Democrat Party, that is those who would allow American’s who aren’t in their district to email them. I don’t like calling representatives because you don’t ever get to talk to a actual rep. you always end up talking to some staff person who either just says,” Yes, you’re right.” or “Rep. so-n-so is following the Constitution!” or some other BS. Liberal staff are the worse because they are as brain washed as the rep. they work for. They will not listen to you, and you can’t reason with them. I can remember some time ago Reid used to have a FAX number. And I would send him some scorching FAX’s. Then I notice he took his FAX number off his Senate site. So, now you either call him or nothing because you can’t get into his site unless you “hack” it. And I have figured out how to do that if you can get a zip code from some area that is in their district. Then you can get in but you have to be accurate. I don’t want to say how I do it here but I have learned how to hack Reid’s site, Pelosi’s site, and others. It took some work, but they can’t stop my scorching emails I send them.

    There’s nothing more to do to try to stop these Marxist because the ones who are the most dangerous and damaging have moved themselves into “safe” districts where they can’t ever be voted out of office. The only way to deal with them is to elect a conservative President and take over both Houses. But to try to get rid of these people like Reid, Schumer, Durbin, and the rest, and especially like Shiela Jackson Lee who takes campaign money from Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations to add to all the dumb Negros who live in her district. She will remain in office unless the dumb Negros in her district finally wake the hell up, which probably won’t ever happen because they’re all on Welfare and Food Stamps. Mrs. Lee the terrorist supporter, and dumb Negro representative is one of those who see Blacks in America as never being more that Second Class citizens. She will never let her constiuents feel like they come under the same Constitutional rights as I do, but we wouldn’t want them to know that would we? I can’t stand her guts! Nor any of the other Marxists!

    1. Will, I as you make spelling errors, and unfortunately it’a usually the result of rushing and this WordPress template offers no edit function for comments. One of it’s many shortcomings I would observe. However, when you angrily compound that by posting this comment>>> “dumb Negros” you really left yourself wide-open.

    2. On your stated frustration. I send emails to politicians also. My two up in the liberal cesspool of NY regularly receive sarcastic put-downs and not requests for intelligent action on their part as such is a waste of time. An adjunct endeavor to that which you do that COULD BE PRODUCTIVE is to forward intelligently composed positions, links, whatever…to your personal mail list/s. Influencing the hearts and minds of the VOTERS, not the politicians, is the way to bring about change. Sure.., support your politicians when they act right. They need that encouragement to sustain their backbones and keep standing tall. I regularly do that with topic and comment posts I make here, sending them to BOTH targets, political representatives and friends. Its MY WAY to exert what I consider to be my personal civic responsibility to advocate on behalf of THE TRUTH to inspire others to do likewise and to EFFECTIVELY use the Communications Superhighway. I don’t try to sell political positions, that’s why we’re in this mess we’re in. I try to sell positions conceived in what I BELIEVE is the right thing to do.
