GOP Strategy and the Fiscal Cliff
American Thinker, by Michael Bargo, Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:SourKraut, 12/24/2012 9:16:07 AM

Both Speaker John Boehner and media analysts have been spun into a state of confusion by the fiscal cliff issue and President Obama´s reelection. The fiscal cliff exists because the president and the GOP Congress could not decide in 2011 on a permanent general policy toward the budget. And now the president has added another factor: he is determined to usurp the Congressional authority to raise the debt ceiling. If the budget goes over the cliff, two things will happen: tax rates on everyone will rise, and across the board spending cuts will be made.

Comments:
When will Weepy learn that there is no ´negotiating´ with Bambi ?

Let the ´fiscal cliff´ happen, then send a bare-bones budget to the Senate and WH with the message ´take it or leave it´.

And please, no more of this ´continuing resolutions´ cr*p; do what the Constitution mandates.

A Democrat cannot allow spending cuts. He simply cannot.

"Don´t call my bluff," anyone?

Op is right on! No more of these continuing resolutions which do nothing more than spend trillions of dollars we don´t have for whole programs and departments we don´t need!!! In addition these resolutions allow the Senate Democrats to not even propose a budget. Just follow the Constitution for once!!!!

Shut down the government. It´s the only real way to cut spending.

Okay- thinking time: We go over to the oblivion- that´s what it is really, because no one knows what will happen. Here is a possibility- People will suffer from the recession and suffer again with the outrage of Øbama Care taxes- 2 grand a year! Yikes! That´s a lot of oatmeal, eh? We start seeing mass layoffs, food lines and "Øbama-villes" sprouting up like asparagus shoots under a wet oak tree. The government then become a very strange thing- just as under Roosevelt with the Great Depression. Desperate people don´t give a hoot whose fault it is- they just want a slice of bread for their kids every day- and really, that´s all they want! Government then has free license to do anything they want, including force people into work camps- remember, that´s exactly what CCCP and WPA was! Prison for idled youth and unemployed men, desperate to get food for their families! Prisons overflowed and pain was common- children died, and the media refused to even mention them- It took John Steinbeck to bring the real picture of what America was becoming to the public- the gvt and media kept right on painting Roosevelt cheery picture and carrying his line of "Hopeful" BS- the public, in desperation, kept right on re-electing that a-hat! This fall will not be one bit different and that is what Valerie jarrett knows!

Aternative Minimum Tax will probably hit half of all middle class taxpayers.

Those on entitlements actually make as much as the middle class, after taxes. As a landlord, I have seen $30,000 a year many times.

Both will see incomes shrink, if the ´fiscal cliff´ occurs. QE´s amounting to $1 Trillion a year, will continue to inflate the money supply. This will shrink incomes of everyone.
Merry Christmas.

All the people who voted for Obama, should put their money where their vote went - a vote for big government. They -dragging the other 47% with them - need to support total return to Clinton era taxes. You won so now you pay the freight. All my Obama friends will of course squeal like stuck pigs. They deserve nothing less.

The GOP has no strategy other than keeping their little plush lives inside the Beltway preserved, and that happens no matter who´s in power, so they just don´t give a tinker´s damn.

The legislation to increase taxes on everyone and cut spending a little is already done. This will result in increased government revenue of 4.6 trillion over 10 years and cuts of 1 trillion. Republicans should go into the debt limit talks demanding that the President match the new revenue 3:1 with cuts, or 14 trillion over 10 years.

Obama seeks "fuller understanding"
of what happened in Algeria siege

President Barack Obama offered on Saturday to provide any assistance the Algerian government needs after a deadly hostage siege at a desert gas plant and said the United States was seeking a "fuller understanding" from Algerian authorities of what took place there. "The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the families of all those who were killed and injured in the terrorist attack in Algeria," Obama said in his first comments on the hostage crisis.

Boehner´s tactics
leave supporters puzzled

Conservative congressmen don´t question House Speaker John Boehner´s dedication to the cause. But as chaos overtakes GOP efforts to prevent a Jan. 1 tax hike, members do have doubts about his effectiveness. Here´s the latest turn of events: Over the summer, House Republicans passed a bill extending the Bush-era tax rates, which are set to expire, resulting in higher rates Jan. 1. That was Boehner´s Plan A. Senate Democrats said no, and so Boehner rolled out Plan B: extend current rates for all income below $1 million, and rein in Social Security spending.

Racial Favoritism and the

Earlier this year, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) decided to disinvite two predominantly white high school choral groups from performance in the ASO´s holiday concert. The ASO´s decision was reportedly motivated by the high schools´ lack of diversity, which caused a stir among people who believe in racial justice as opposed to racial favoritism.

PRINCE Harry has killed his first Taliban commander, The Sun can reveal. The 28-year-old gunship co-pilot was called on to unleash a missile strike to eliminate a senior terror leader. Harry has proved a massive hit with comrades in Helmand, Afghanistan, who have nicknamed him Big H. A defence insider said: "Big H is a legend. “We were on patrol and the Apache helicopters were called in. We heard this posh voice come over the radio and knew it was Big H. They were tracking a Taliban leader — he was commander level.

New York - Federal agents raided an eastern Connecticut gun shop on Thursday, the same gun shop that sold one of the weapons used by the Newtown elementary school shooter. Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, assisted by police, moved in on Riverview Sales at 4 Prospect Hill Road in East Windsor at around 5:15 p.m., reported Len Besthoff of CBS 2 sister station WFSB in Hartford. Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle in Newtown last Friday, the second-worst mass shooting in United States history.

Caroline Wozniacki has been accused of doing a ´racist´ impersonation of fellow tennis player Serena Williams after stuffing her bra and shorts. At a recent exhibition against Maria Sharapova in Brazil, the former world No. 1 stuffed courtside towels down her kit to replicate the body of the curvaceous Grand Slam champion. But now the 22-year-old Dane, whose boyfriend golfer Rory McIlroy was in the crowd, has now been accused of racism by some observers.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

   

 



 
White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
