Obama Demands Quick
Action to Raise Debt Limit

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/14/2013 2:59:44 PM

Washington - President Barack Obama demanded on Monday that lawmakers raise the nation´s $16.4 trillion federal debt limit quickly, warning that "Social Security benefits and veterans´ checks will be delayed" if they don´t and cautioning Republicans not to insist on cuts to government spending in exchange. "They will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy," he said at the 21st and final news conference of his first term. "The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargaining chip. And they better decide quickly because time is running short."

Yep, but those welfare checks and government bennies will go out right on time.

FTA: "They will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy,"

The president gets his ransom AND crashes the economy.

What we should do very quickly is recount the votes.

Since the constitution is so flexible, let´s extend consideration of the
Electoral College´s initial estimate.

As little more than a gummint estimate, it could have been way off.
Seems to many that it was.

Quick recount is in order.
Constitution? Be damned!
Two or more can play the game, Bammy.

Social security checks come from a trust fund, separate from the federal budget.

And President Zero, as a u.s. senator, voted against raising the debt limit.
He said it was treasonous, or some such words.

The direct impact of raising the debt limit (again) is merely rushing up to an even higher cliff before leaping off.

Not all leaders are tyrants, and some resist tyrants. This creep communist is becoming the most hated tyrant since Caesar, and I wouldn´t be surprised if he has his Ides of March moment.

Since the President gets his authority from the Constitution, and when he violates his authority with illegal actions and demands, he betrays the trust of the American people, and becomes their enemy. I don´t think they can protect him or his cabal from a free people.

How did Nero end? Mussolini? Hitler? Stalin? Mao? Castro? Chavez? The modern tyrants all disarmed their people.

Obama called it a leadership failure. Of course then the debt was at 8.6 trillion, now that it´s 16.5 trillion it´s your patriotic duty. "If Obama says it, it must be very right."

How about you get the same response you gave Paul Ryan when asked about a budget...no...no...not today...not anytime in the near future either.....you own this Putter O...too many vacations, too many golf courses, too many parties in fantasy land. Too many hours of being fed communist ideas, socialist rhetoric all the while sucking on the silver spoon in your mouth.

#4, was that algorezero´s Lock Box... ?

No funds for Social Security have ever been saved in any way.
They´ve all been spent as we go.
Recipients get theirs.
The rest is always spent on the general budget, very conveniently for liberoids.

Only IOU´s have been thrown in a drawer for later reference.
Once the drawdown begins, funds have to come from taxes.
Nothing has ever been saved.
It´s always all been spent each year.

Text algorezero at his iGloo for confirmation...
There´s no doubt that...
He could use a break from sipping Cokes with the polar bears... s/o

Obe there has been no budget for 4 years and now you fail again. If there is no budget no bills can be paid and by law SS and VA military pay checks are not bills and are off the table. when trying to decide which payments will not be paid remember owners eat dirt when money runs out therefore since you think you are the nation´s owners you the critters czars and all other fed bosses must forgo salary and wages.

Of course the butt-boy press never says anything about Obama´s dictatorial tone or parisanship. Were a Republican pulling this stunt, we´d hear cries of Hilter, etc. Republicans are always partisan, never willing to work with the other side at compromise, according to the butt-boy press. Look in the freakin´ mirror, for crying out loud! Oh wait . . . they do; he does. And they all like what they see: Marxism.

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
