Dude Kinda Has a Point

Though his rhetoric is the decisively pro-Republitard bullshit that keeps getting those fuckers elected, this dude kinda has a a point when discussing the Demotarded “blame it on Bush” meme it has hatched and nurtured over the past two years: So in that context, let’s just see what Bush and Republicans are to blame for… […]

A Good Start

The Wall Street Journal on the national deficit: At $1.47 trillion, the federal deficit this fiscal year exceeds all defense and nondefense spending at Congress’s discretion by $110 million. In other words, lawmakers could eliminate the entire military, all federal education, agricultural, housing programs, federal prisons, the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Coast […]

We Democrats…

hereby formally and with a full commitment, declare full scale class warfare on those whom we deem make more money than they deserve, and will strive to coerce it from them and give it to those who vote for us in order that we maintain our power. If we fail, we will, however, continue to […]

Earth to Democrats

The AP: Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said that allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire would be “the responsible thing to do.” [. . .] “It’s responsible to let the tax cuts expire that just go to 2 percent to 3 percent of Americans, the highest earning Americans,” Geithner told ABC’s “This Week” in […]

The Debt Perversion

Debt, by definition, is what one accrues when one spends more money than one has to spend. Demotards and their friends at The Washington Post would have us believe that debt is what one accrues when one doesn’t make as much as one spends. Although they have blamed Democrats for record budget deficits, most Republican […]

Don’t Get Me Wrong

There has been a whole lot of me harping, criticizing, and cussing about democrats of late. There is a simple reason for that: they are the only ones doing something. Demotards accuse Republitards of being the party of no, saying essentially that they are trying to throw a wrench in the congressional machine. Make no […]

Phrase of the Day

Political Expediency. Republicans back away from their (correct) stance of withholding further unemployment extensions which are not paid for by equivalent spending cuts elsewhere in the budget, rather than adding yet another $100 billion or so to the public national debt.  Only so long can a party be publicly accused of hating the unfortunate before […]

Who Knew?

Howard Schneider via The Washington Post on the IMF’s first ever economic analysis of America’s slowing economic recovery: The Obama administration is overestimating U.S. economic growth and needs to reduce its budget deficit far more aggressively, the International Monetary Fund said on Thursday in a report that targeted Social Security, the home mortgage interest deduction […]

Spend More, Grow Less

I have yet to understand how the Demotards justify the idea that in order to get government spending under control, it needs to spend more and put it all on the company credit card. Luca Di Leo via The Wall Street Journal: In several congressional hearings this year, Mr. Bernanke has warned lawmakers that U.S. […]

Even a Blind Squirrel

It’s not often that the Times prints something worth reading, but I’ll take what I can get. Though there are some deep flaws in Leonhardt’s argument, like the idea that tax hikes should be on the table initially,1 and that government is the best – perhaps only – provider of advanced hospitals, education, etc, the […]
