John Boehner Should
Get of Obama's Way

American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/9/2012 7:57:19 AM

Based on the dismal state of the union and after four years of doing exactly what Rush Limbaugh said he hoped that he would do, by any thinking person's standards President Barack Obama has indeed "failed." Yet, despite the catastrophe, on Election Day the American people inexplicably invited the President to spend the next four years beating the dead horse that he killed during his first term. The next day, after being MIA for months, Speaker of the House John Boehner crawled out of the tanning bed long enough to publicly assure the President

Boehner does not have the nads or spine to stand up to the socialist Democrat Party or Obama's agenda to turn America into a third-world cesspool. Only revolution or some catastrophic event can turn this mess around. Short of that, America is done.

The House needs a new leader. If West gets his recount, he would be my first choice.

I am writing my congress critters and requesting they let us fall off of that imaginary Fiscal Cliff.

That is the fastest way to expose the democrat lies about the "Bush tax cuts for the rich". When the sheep see how much they were saving under Bush's tax cuts, they should wake up to the fact that congressional liberals are deceptive.

Unfortunately, the republicans do not have the leaders required to do this.

#3, by sitting down and talking about things, we have gotten to where we are. Bipartisanship? Lemme explain bipartisanship........
Conservatives believe that child molesters need be incarcerated forever as we understand the incredibly high recidivism rate.
Liberals think that child molesters need counseling and to be released back into society.

Bipartisanship has resulted in laws that........provide counseling and release the predators back into society.

I hope that every single pathology that is the direct result of liberalism haunts you the rest of your life.

But of course as a liberal, you'd NEVER live in an area impacted by YOUR policies.
But guess what? With Tuesday's election? NOWHERE is safe.

Let the all the tax rates expire, let the sequestration kick in. No more phoney baloney negotiations up to the 11th hour, only to dream up another rube goldberg, kick of the can, to another deadline.
Obama owns this mess. Let him deal with it.
the whole charade of republican opposition makes me want to puke.

#3 What an appropriate screen name. Rabbits are timid teriffied creatures. The idea that you can sit down and be bi-partisan with Democrats (Socialists) is ludicrous. By bi-partisan, Zippy means "give me everything I want". He doesn't budge an inch on his ideas. If he can't get them through the legislative process he pouts and then issues Executive Orders which flout the Constitution. And Bohener does nothing. The recent election had the country split almost exactly right down the middle. How does Harry Reid interpret that?! He says Zippy has a "Mandate" to do what ever he wants and he is going to rig the system to eliminate the one weapon still available to Conservatives to slow the ultimate fiscal destruction of our country, the fillibuster. Please explain to me how that is bi-partisan. You what is a real "terrible idea for out children and grandchildren"? How about each and every one of them being saddled with a $ 200,000 bill to pay for Zippy's socialist pipe dreams on the day they're born.

Agree, let the system crash because that is the only way the US can be saved. We have not been a Capitalistic society in decades or a true Republic. We are a hybrid of capitalism with healthy doses of socialism, statism, and marxism. Crashing the system will hurt like hell and may very well fracture the US. The altenative is to slowly become at best socialist Europe at worst a banana republic with marxist policies.

This is the second satirical column today suggesting that the GOP should do exactly what Obama wants and let HIM take the hits for the excrement that will hit our fan the way it hit Greece's fan.

There is some merit to the idea, because if it's actually done, only Democrats will be blamed for the collapse. We'll have to suffer through it but the futility of socialism will actually be realized by those who advocate it. When a country collapses, leaders face the consequences. Getting out of Obama's way will ensure this won't happen again.

Unfortunately, massive destruction and deprivation may have to come first. But we expect that anyway with O's second term, so let's get it over with.

No No No No!

So you give them all they want and crash the system to show them this is the wrong path. If they weren't taught the correct path, why do you think the crash will educate them. I think all it will do is further weaken America and cause them to go feral. Like I ask my armed up neighbors, how many people are you going to shoot? NO! We got bombed at Pearl harbor and our response was not "Let them keep destroying America until they see the error of their ways".

Those who oppose the "vote present" approach: what do you propose? Be specific.

Fight to the "end"? You will lose - NerØbama has demonstrated his ability to go around Congress. Whatever small victories you may win will be blamed for the consequences that are inevitable at this point. You will be blamed.

Compromise? You will not get a result that will stop the inevitable. Harry Reid will see to that. You will only sign on to a doomed solution. You will be blamed.

You will stop nothing. You will only be blamed.

So what is your solution? Be specific. The clock is ticking.

"Well, what Boehner may not have anticipated is that come January working together on solutions will likely include figuring out how to prevent the President's ardent supporters from melting down when they realize that voting for him did not exempt them from the middle class tax increase that's due to hit hard when the Bush-era tax cuts expire."

Most of Obama's voters don't pay income taxes, why would they be concerned about an income tax increase?

Social Security stops trying

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

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

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

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.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

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

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.

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.
