Been There. Done That. Have the T-Shirt.


"So, when Congress gets back in September I want to move quickly on things that will help the economy create jobs right now. Extending the payroll tax credit to put a thousand dollars in the pocket of the average American worker. Extending unemployment insurance to help people get back on their feet. " -- RealClearPolitics

Running. On. Fumes.

Your Say

Not putting the loot into the SS fund certainly helped out that deficit, didn't it.

If the people could get by without those deposits for now, why not forever? Let them worry about their own retirement.

"Putting construction workers back to work rebuilding America."

And then sending them back to Guatemala when we're all rebuilt?

"Extending unemployment insurance"? Yeah, that'll work. Hell, why not make it permanent? You get your first job, get laid off, and the government sends you a check for the rest of your life. WTF!

(See, if you spell WTF with an exclamation point, it means Winning The Future. Not like that other WTF which is followed by a question mark.)

Running on fumes? At least that would indicate this nonsense will stop when the fumes dry up. What we're doing now is running things with stolen gas siphoned from our kids' gas tank.

Oh I don't know... I think he's behaving exactly the way we should expect at this point. We're dealing with an extreme Leftist White House who would prefer America be a dictatorship. I say let's let him fuck everything up thoroughly enough that we NEVER ELECT ANY MAN OR WOMAN EVEN RESEMBLING A LEFTIST AGAIN NOW MATTER HOW BLACK HE OR SHE IS!!!

Almost no one who is in a bankrupt condition recognizes or accepts the simplest and most obvious truths until the process is over, the wiggling and drama are removed, and, when the same opinions are muttered, people turn away from you. We're still wiggling.

Remember kids, liberals and clowns are funny, but you never want to put them in the driver's seat.
