One Half of One Third

In blogs posted November 14 (Party Leadership) and again on December 12 (Bounce Boehner) I pleaded with the Republicans in Congress first to not allow Boehner to become Speaker of the House and, when that fell on deaf eyes, to fire him.

All we have to do is listen to the left-wing media’s praise for Boehner after the budget fiasco to understand who they want to remain as speaker. Boehner said today on Fox and Friends that he wanted to lock arms with President Obama and jump out of the boat together. If they had cement blocks tied to their ankles, I would enthusiastically support his desire.

The Republican leadership capitulated. Their next surrender will be the debt ceiling.

When will we call this treason?

Kill All the Lawyers

It was Shakespeare in Henry VI who famously wrote, “The first thing we do is kill all the lawyers.” If the Bard were to pen those words today, Homeland Security would whisk him away to an unknown location for an indeterminate length of time.

Actually, I am a reasonable man with copious amounts of compassion. I would prefer to say: “First we give them 30 days to resign their positions. If they fail to do this, we kill all the lawyers serving more than two terms in Congress…and all lobbyists.” That would cull the herd of vandals.

Congress and the Administration is stealing our money and spending us into poverty. They do so with impunity.

The Central Bank of Libya received 73 loans from the U. S. Federal Reserve in the 18 months after Lehman Brothers collapsed. While creditworthy small businesses here at home could not secure affordable loans ( thus stifling job growth) Libya was provided tens of billions of dollars in credit.

Since 2008, we have lost 2 million private sector jobs. A week ago, the total public debt outstanding of the United States was $14.2 trillion or 96.3% of GDP. That ranked 12th worst in the world. Yet, DC politicians of both parties refuse to make the spending cuts vital to the national security of our nation. At what point do we accept that their actions represent treason?
