Time For Boehner And McConnell To Redeem Themselves

Treasury Secretary Lew has informed Speaker John Boehner that the US will hit the debt ceiling on 16 March. Treasury would then be required to take extraordinary measures to keep government running and those measures would be exhausted by the final Quarter of the calendar year.

I am not a fan of raising the debt ceiling. I think that instead of raising the limit the amount we are spending should be reduced. The government is taking in record amounts of revenue from taxes but continues to spend more than it gets. Raising the ceiling would not (allegedly) involve new spending. Lew says that it would make sure that money is available to pay for things we have already obligated to. That just means we spent more than we had and now we need more to pay the bills.

This is the time for Boehner and McConnell to step up and redeem themselves over their poor performance regarding funding the DHS and Obama’s illegal executive action.

Boehner and McConnell should insist that getting rid of the illegal executive action (on immigration) by Obama is part of the deal. In fact, they should try to get everything they can as part of the deal. Democrats will balk and scream for a “clean” bill but they got a clean bill for DHS. Now it is time for them to step up.

The thing is these two spineless “leaders” will need to stand fast on their demands or the Democrats will own them once again. They need to be out forming the narrative NOW by telling people what they will do and that if Democrats do not go along they and ONLY THEY will be responsible for the government defaulting.

Put the onus on the Democrats and keep hammering them. Make it all about their unwillingness to compromise. Show them as the bad guys and associate all bad things that might come as being their fault.

I don’t want to see the ceiling raised. We keep adding to the mountain of debt we already have and it will not get better if they refuse to fix the problems that require them to spend more (ie out of control spending, unconstitutional programs, out of control welfare). If we can get a number of concessions for raising the ceiling then it will be worth it this time though if Boehner and McConnell had any guts it would not be necessary.

While I would like to see these two play hardball and ram this down the throats of the Democrats I am pretty sure they will end up looking like dumb and dumber when all is said and done.

It is likely they will raise the limit, give the Democrats everything they want, screw conservatives and the nation and end up telling us it was the best they could do and we should just sit back and take it.

These two could not lead a group of people out of a burning building so it is very unlikely they will actually do anything worthwhile on this issue.

Obama once said adding to the debt and burdening future generations with debt was unpatriotic. Obama and his Democrats, by that definition, are unpatriotic.

Unfortunately, a number of Republicans are unpatriotic as well.

One day we will be led by people who are not part of the establishment and who will get things under control.

Unless, of course, the current crop of morons kills the nation off before then…

Boehner And McConnell Are Ineffective Cowards

Give us control and we will stop Obama and his illegal orders on immigration. We will take the fight to him for you. We have the House but we need the Senate or we can’t do anything. Give us the Senate and things will be different.

Yes, the lip service John Boehner and Mitch McConnell gave us before the election was right on and they said all the right things. There were many of us who pushed for both of them to face a primary opponent to get rid of them. But folks like Ann Coulter (who I happen to love) said we can’t do that because getting control was most important and if we lost McConnell’s seat then we might not get the Senate and that is what we needed.

Well, we gave them the Senate and they are doing the same thing they did when they were in the minority. They are bending over and letting the Democrats have their way with them. The Republicans in the Senate are acting like they are in the minority by letting Reid and the Democrats run all over them and Boehner is caving to the Senate and giving them what they want.

But Big Dog, the Democrats are blocking the Senate with tactics and it is hard work.

Yes, I know the Democrats are doing all the very things they screamed and threw fits about when they were in the majority. They hated when Republicans did these things but they found ways around them. McConnell is not quite bright enough to do it the way Reid did.

So he will just bend over and take it like a jailhouse punk.

Here is what McConnell should have done. He should have changed the rules so that only 51 votes were needed to pass the legislation. Then it would pass and be sent to Obama who would have to sign it or veto it. If he vetoed it he AND HE ALONE would have been responsible for shutting down the DHS (which would not really shut down because they are mission essential). McConnell did not have the guts to do that even though Harry Reid did it and it was accepted by Democrats. They would have to accept it if McConnell did it and anyone who screamed could be reminded that they were warned that it would one day come back to bite them in their large asses.

Boehner could have slid his wretched self out of the bottom of a bourbon glass long enough to make it clear he would not change his position. He could have coached McConnell to use the Reid option and get it done. These two could have had a united front.

Instead they were both too busy worrying about what people might think of the process.

Screw how people feel. There is an out of control Executive who is ignoring the Constitution. He has become a tyrant and the supposed leaders of the Republicans in Congress are letting him get away with it.

It leads me to believe that they want this illegal action on immigration to go through. Yes, they say it is in the court but there is no guarantee the court will uphold the law. The tyrants in the black robes are as bad as the tyrant in the White House. They are all part of the downfall and they need to be stopped.

But Boehner and McConnell are not up to the job. They said they were. They begged us to give them the job. They promised they would do these things.

And in the end all we have are two ineffective cowards who are too busy applying Vasoline to do their jobs.

Obama will not stop here. He is already working on ways to use Executive Orders to raise taxes (first on corporations but it will not stop there). This will be a blatant violation of the Constitution but Boehner and McConnell have already shown they are not up to the task. They will not stop the tyrant Obama.

We will be taxed without representation. Does that sound familiar? It should. That is what led 3% of this nation to fight the Brits for Independence.

A hell of a lot more that 3% are fed up in this country and it is now quite obvious that Boehner and McConnell are impotent. We gave them a chance and they failed.

The only solution to the tyranny lies in the hands of the patriots.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security ~ from the US Declaration of Independence [emphasis added]

It is our birthright, it is our duty and it is our destiny to unshackle the bonds placed by an oppressive and tyrannical government and to form new one. Our Founders did just that and they did it over a lot less than what is going on now.

The time is coming because Obama and the rest of the lawbreakers have put us on a collision course. I pray to God that we avoid such a situation but Boehner and McConnell have shown us they are nothing more than different wings of the same bird and they do not have the interest of the American people at heart.

They are cowards who lack the ability to stand up for what is right. We need some real leadership to step forward or I fear this nation is headed for major unrest.

For now we are stuck with these two impotent twerps who have betrayed us. My friends, please do not donate to the Republican party. Screw them. Keep your money and do something useful with it. These pricks will just take you for a ride and dump you in the desert.

Starve the beast and the next time pundits tell you it is more important to gain control than to get rid of bad politicians remind them of these two and how ineffective they are even with the majority.

Dear John and Mitch, my contact form is on this page. Reach out if you want some pointers on how to man up

Democrats, you are not off the hook. You criminals backed the illegal action and you put party before country. In a just world you would hang for your treason. Fear not, if the world were just many Republicans would be swinging next to you.

The Second Amendment Is The Permit

The West Virginia senate passed a bill that allows its citizens to carry firearms concealed without any kind of permit from the government. The issues is known as Constitutional Carry in that the only thing a law abiding citizen who is not otherwise disqualified from owning a firearm needs to be able to carry it is the existence of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

WV joins several other states that have done the same thing by recognizing that the existence of the right is the only thing needed to exercise the right.

No one should need a permit or a license or any other government approval in order to carry any firearm that the person is not disqualified from legally owning.

”A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Yes, there are people who cannot own a firearm because they are felons or they are mentally ill. Those folks can have their rights restricted because they either have shown they are not to be trusted or they do not have the ability to understand and exercise the responsibility that goes with owning (and carrying) a firearm.

All others should need nothing.

WV is in the process of ensuring the people’s right to keep and bear arms, as protected by the Constitution, is not infringed.

No one has to jump through government hoops to exercise any other right and the same should be true for the Second Amendment.

There are plenty of states that have a lot of work to do in this area but it is good to see some of them leading the way.

Ever notice the places with the most stringent gun control suffers the most crime and the most violence (often from the very firearms that are “controlled”)? WV recognizes that criminals will not obey any law passed and that law abiding citizens should not be burdened with laws that do nothing to stop crime.

People should be free to carry or not.

That would make the country a much safer place.

Another Liberal City Near Bankruptcy

Chicago, Obama’s hometown by the way, is in financial ruin. It taxes people to death and it spends way more than it takes in. The place is a haven for corruption and union deals that have led to pensions sucking the life out of the city. The only answer that liberals have is to tax more but the place has a lot of poverty and more and more people are getting on the welfare wagon. Chicago is nearly ruined and will soon hit rock bottom.

So really, this is just another liberal run city. Find any city in dire straits and it is run by liberals.

Chicago has been a liberal run city for as far back as anyone can recall. It has been the home of criminals and crime bosses and some of those were not even elected officials. Al Capone was probably one of Chicago’s more tame criminals.

Chicago has been downgraded and is now just two levels above junk bond rating:

Chicago drew closer to a fiscal free fall on Friday with a rating downgrade from Moody’s Investors Service that could trigger the immediate termination of four interest-rate swap agreements, costing the city about $58 million and raising the prospect of more broken swaps contracts.

The downgrade to Baa2, just two steps above junk, and a warning the rating could fall further still, means the third-biggest U.S. city could face even higher costs in the future if banks choose to terminate other interest-rate hedges against fluctuations in interest rates. All told, Chicago holds swaps contracts covering $2.67 billion in debt, according to a disclosure late last year. Yahoo News

I think Chicago will collapse though it is highly likely Obama will find some way to step in and get money sent there. Sharpton and others will scream racism and say we can’t let Chicago fail (like folks screamed about Detroit) but the reality is the city and most of its people deserve to fail.

The people there continue to vote for liberal politicians who are part of the crime scene. It is ingrained in the system and anyone who tries to go counter to that ends up swimming with the fishes. Let them fail and be done with it.

Perhaps once the place collapses and people move out or riot with each other they can throw out all the criminals and rebuild.

Then again it is more likely the people there, led by their political crime bosses, will walk around hat in hand to beg the American taxpayers to bail them out.

Liberals only know one solution to problems and that is to throw more money at them while fleecing as many people as they can. It never works but they keep at it. When the only tool you have is a hammer all problems look like a nail.

The only tools liberals have are tax and spend so all problems look like money problems.

Government is not your mommy and daddy and you should not depend on it. If you do you are part of the problem.

So as one pastor from the Chicago area would say, the chickens are coming home to roost…

Have fun on the way to the bottom and please, keep your issues to yourself. The rest of us do not want to pay for them. In other words, you deserve to suffer for your stupidity but the rest of us should not suffer along with you.

Even a liberal moron like Twinkle Toes Emanuel is having trouble in Chicago. People want too much and don’t think he is delivering enough…

Why Shop At An Unsafe Mall?

The Mall of America has a policy that bans guns from its premises. Law abiding citizens are not allowed to carry firearms on the property (or at least inside the mall itself) but this policy will do little to stop lawbreakers from entering the mall with firearms and causing all kinds of destruction.

There are threats from terrorist groups where lone wolf terrorists have been asked to attack malls in the US and the Mall of America is on the list of targets. The solution the mall has come up with is for the law abiding to leave their firearms in their cars or at home thus making them sheep.

People who shoot back have a better chance of survival when attacked by a bad guy with a gun.

What will the mall do? It might hire private security or police officers might be assigned to the property. Neither is effective. Hundreds of law abiding gun owners with their guns are a much more deadly foe than cops or security guards scattered throughout. Besides, wouldn’t it be better if the cops were out patrolling the streets?

The mall has basically told would be attackers that the place is a shooting gallery and invited them in. If it had instead published that it wants and encourages gun owners to carry on the property would be bad guys would think twice before attacking. Bad people do not like to attack those who can and will fight back. They like to pick the weak and unprotected. This is why mass shootings happen at places where guns are banned like malls, theaters and schools.

You have never seen a mass shooting at a gun show.

My suggestion is to avoid the place and any other that does not allow people to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. If you are not able to protect yourself then you will not be safe. The government and private businesses are unable to protect you and if you are harmed they will not take responsibility for your injuries.

If enough people stay away from the mall to cause it financial distress and cite the gun ban as the reason the mall’s management will quickly change its mind. If not then a lot of anti gun folks will shop there in their deluded world where they think they are safe. Let them be the targets. Stay home or shop where you are encouraged to carry your firearm.

America was founded by people with guns and our history includes armed people ensuring their own safety and the safety of their neighbors. Instead of being the Mall of America perhaps it should be the Mall of un-American Values…
