HDR 158: Raise The Roof Over The Debt Ceiling!
ALOHA, ALL! So the measure to raise the debt ceiling failed in the House yesterday. This is just the beginning of a long battle between those who want to cut spending and those who want to spend us into oblivion. Meanwhile, Dear Leader Barry continues to meet behind the scenes with leaders of both parties. Our illustrious Treasury Secretary, Tim “TurboTax” Geithner direly predicts that if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by August 2, our government will default, a depression will result, and chaos will ensue. Really? It seems to me it would enable us to prioritize what we really need to spend money on and maybe even get rid of non-essential, frivolous waste. Frankly, I don’t see any other way we will rein in this out-of-control monster government. Get real, DC….the American people are demanding you be serious with OUR money! House Rejects Bill to Raise Debt Limit – FoxNews.com
Oh yeah, who said this? “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” (*Answer below..but I’m sure you already know.)
Thank John Boehner! Thank Speaker Boehner for Blocking Obama Recess Appointments | RedState “On Friday, the Examiner reported that Speaker Boehner did not pass a resolution giving the Senate permission to adjourn. Therefore, as he did in 2007, Harry Reid will convene pro-forma sessions today, on Tuesday May 31, and on Friday June 3rd, in order to block his own President from doing recess appointments.” Frankly, I’m fed up with all the Boehner bashing on the right. Rome wasn’t built in a day!
The brilliance of Thomas Sowell. Seductive Beliefs – Page 1 – Thomas Sowell – Townhall Conservative “Despite a carefully choreographed image of affability and cool, Barack Obama’s decisions and appointments as President betray an alienation from the values and the people of this country that are too disturbing to be answered by showing his birth certificate.” LOVE that!
Get that blood pressure medicine ready. EPA Gives Money to China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection | The Foundry “While the People’s Republic of China holds over $1.1 trillion of our debt, EPA is busy giving grants to China. The Chinese grantees include their Ministry of Environmental Protection.” ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????
On the immigration front: 61% Favor A State Law That Would Shut Down Repeat Offenders Who Hire Illegal Immigrants – Rasmussen Reports™ “61% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a law in their state that would shut down companies that knowingly and repeatedly hire illegal immigrants. Just 21% oppose such a law.” Earth to Republicans…you wanna win in 2012? Go after immigration!!!
On the energy front: API: Keystone XL Pipeline bill will create hundreds of thousands of new American jobs “The bipartisan, North American-Made Energy Act, that would approve the Keystone XL Pipeline by November 1, is an important driver of U.S. economic growth and job creation, according to API.” But wait! The State Department (aka Hillary) is holding up the pipeline. a construction project that would transport crude oil from Alberta, Canada to Oklahoma and Texas oil refiners. Not only would the Keystone pipeline secure vital resources from a trusted ally, it would provide an economic boon for struggling Midwestern states. Americans for Tax Reform has a petition: Americans for Tax Reform :: Tell the State Department to Approve the Keystone XL Pipeline
I think I just heard a loud expletive coming from the White House. “The book that caused such a sensation even before its official launch that the White House felt pressured to preemptively release the president’s purported birth certificate – Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President” – is now officially a New York Times best-seller. It debuts today on the Times nonfiction list at No. 6 – joining virtually all the other top bestseller lists this week, including USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly.” ‘Birther’ book soars – CNN Political Ticker – CNN.com Blogs
Another loud expletive…from Queen Michelle this time. Why Do People Keep Leaving the Employ of HRH Michelle Antoinette? | UNCOVERAGE.net “Michelle haughtily denies it’s her unpleasant personality that’s driving people away by the boatloads; instead, she insists it’s because she sets such a ‘high bar’ of standards for them.” LOL!!
UPDATE: WeinerGate. Newser causes more trouble for Rep. Anthony Weiner | Byron York | Beltway Confidential | Washington Examiner “After retaining legal counsel in a case in which a lewd photo was sent from his Twitter account to a 21 year-old female college student, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner says he will no longer answer questions about the matter. The matter has become a “distraction,” the outspoken Democrat told reporters Tuesday.” So he’s just not going to talk about it anymore? This will make it go away? Then again, NADA in the lamesteam media about this – can you imagine if it was a conservative? BREAKING NEWS: Just saw O’Reilly report on this.
Must-see video of Barry’s gal pal, terrorist Bernadine Dohrn (aka Mrs. Bill Ayers.) Remember – Barry launched his political career in their home. The former Weather Underground punk is still spewing venom – she needs to be thrown in jail for her crimes:
Final Thought: “When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.” Japanese Proverb (Gee – why didn’t people do that in 2008?)
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
