Obama to Republicans:
my offer is this, nothing

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/30/2012 7:41:10 AM

Tim Geithner presented John Boehner with the Obama plan for averting the “fiscal cliff.” According to the New York Times, Obama’s plan calls for $1.6 trillion in tax increases over 10 years, $50 billion in immediate stimulus spending, home mortgage refinancing, and a permanent end to Congressional control over statutory borrowing limits. President Obama would also agree to a goal of finding $400 billion in savings from Medicare and other social programs to be worked out next year, but with no guarantees. In other words, to quote Michael Corleone, “My offer is this, nothing. Not even the money

So -- it´s over the cliff we go. Far better a cliff than falling into the Obama abyss.

Why doesn´t every Republican start every sentence they utter with "We must cut spending . . . "?

$50 billion in stimulus - he means $50 billion in donor pay-backs; obligations for the re-election.

Why would the NYT reporter be surprised? This is the way he has ruled since he took power 4 years ago. Nothing new here.


The sooner we go over the cliff, the quicker all his supporters will realize they´ve been duped, again!

The sooner progressives and the media bring America to its knees, the sooner the people who know better can put the nation back on its feet. – Arnold Ahlert, Canada Free Press

Rush Limbaugh said the same thing yesterday.

Dictator-in-Chief Obama continues to confirm the wisdom of that view.

If we would simply cut out ALL the freebies given to illegals, just the illegals, we would save the country ~$300 billion. A Year. Each Year. Don´t buy the pap floated by the WH about the funding two wars/military spending is what put the country into debt. We spend over $300 billion a year in welfare, free medical, EBTs, anchor baby deliveries, free housing, free cell phones, free education in our public schools, WIC programs, police protection, jails, etc. etc. on just illegals alone and this burden on the taxpayer is increasing with each passing day that our borders are flooded with them.

So basically he wants higher taxes, excuse me, I meant to say "revenues", more spending and in return he wants us to take his word that he will cut spending at some future unspecified date. My question is, why the hell would anyone take his word for anything. He wouldn´t know the truth if it walked up and smacked him in the face. He has already proven to be a pathological liar.

The House should cease agreeing to any funding for the government. Spending bills originate there. Don´t originate any.

I´m of the opinion that everyone should pay income taxes. Period. Bush created this monster when he eliminated income taxes for those making less than X number of dollars per year. Tax PAYERS pay more attention to spending than tax CONSUMERS.

Frankly, taking the fiscal cliff is better than raping the wealthy for more give-aways for the moochers. The democrats are not serious about reigning in spending....and they keep repeating the mantra that they won the election and America voted for increased taxes. Ignoring all of the exit polling that showed that the population prefered and trusted Romney more on the economy.

Are these Dems kidding? Twice they have offered this type of deal to raise taxes now and we will lower expenditures later. They never, ever lowered spending and thus screwed the Repubs. Perhaps the Repubs. liked being raked over the coals!

The first thing that needs to happen is for the Rupublicans challange the premise of the debate. The budget they are referring to is the one Obama presented that recieved no votes. Why are we discussing that budget.
Call Harry Reid out on not presenting a budget for the last three years. None of these polititicians from either side will state the fact that no one has offered anything that will "cut" any spending. It is just a low level of increases in the ongoing budget that was bloted by the stimulus package and continues to grow.

2016....$25 Trillion in debt.

Wanna bet ?

If past actions of the Repubs is any indicator, they´ll fold like a cheap rug.

After all, job security is so much more important than a national fiscal policy that makes any sense at all.

Everything out of his mouth has an expiration date #9. It is not just the rich that will be taxed folks. If the base would start paying attention, they would realize that by stealing 401K´s as the WH would like to do, they are going to be hit too. It is a 2 part scheme going on here. But the commenters here are smart enough to know that already.

Obama needs an "intervention" from Republicans, so Obama can enter a rehab for his spending addiction.
The problem is not lack of revenue, the problem is TOO MUCH spending.
NO tax hikes without serious spending cuts in EVERYTHING except the military.

I´m 52, I´ve been in the workforce for 30 years as an RN. I´m in excellent health and had planned to keep working until around 60 because I like my job and I get to come to work and help others every day. I´m seriously thinking of retiring very soon. I´m tired of getting up at 530 or 6 am every day, working 10-12 hours, just so Obama can take my hard-earned money and redistribute to those who can´t seem to get their acts together to support themselves. After this last election, I´m about done. Sorry for the sour grapes.

Folks, this is really what he is after. This is a move of dictatorial proportions. Make no mistake, 2016 is going to be an interesting scenario. He is enamored with dictators, and has done his best to emulate them.

Zero2 is now treating America like an old lover who he is bored with and doesn´t care whether she goes, stays or dies.

And, who can blame him? He cheated and lied during his first term, then goofed off during his re-election and still got re-elected [peace be upon all the dead people who voted for him.] Why should he show respect?

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

   

 



 
Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
