Obama can't promise Social Security checks will go out August 3.
I find it hard to believe the president can't promise to deliver a lousy paycheck to old people, it's not exactly brain surgery...and ObamaCare promises everyone that!
Won't this finally put truth to the lie (for liberals only, conservatives have always known) that this "safety net" isn't so pay-as-you-go after all?
Since George W. Bush became president the wars have cost just over a trillion, and if you wanted to accept the liberal line that tax cuts are all cost and no gain the Bush tax cuts "cost" just under 3 trillion. The rest of it (about $4 trillion) is promises government never intended to keep.
Even if we could wave a magic wand for liberals, and will away the wars and the tax cuts, the debt still would have increased by trillions, yet that's all they want to talk about is we wouldn't be in this mess but for George W. Bush.
PSSSH! We've sacrificed liberty for (social) security, and just like Benjamin Franklin promised we are now getting neither. This is what the country gets for trusting the snake oil of liberal fiscal floozies, and now their solution is to blame the victims for not forking over enough money.
If liberals want to prevent this fight from happening in the future they should brainwash kids into thinking that money packs on the calories and that we should leave the handling of it to them. After all, isn't that what Michelle Obama is doing to them with their diet?Add a comment
That, and more from today's Newsbusted.
I've heard of the remake Jodi was talking about!!!
I actually just recently had a conversation with my wife about Welcome Back Kotter. She thought the title was "Carter." I only knew it wasn't because Gabe Kaplan was going to perform at a performing arts theatre I worked for years ago, and I learned about him when I was making the marketing materials for the show.
Obviously, we're not children of the 70's. I say that with as much longing as my daughter will lament that she has no recollection of Obama's presidency because she was barely 2 years old when he was dutifully replaced.
If you're offended by that because you thought the 70's were awesome, relax, it's just my opinion. So untwist your bell bottoms and go buy some real pants.
I wonder how many people who were around to vote for Carter actually voted for Obama. Those Charlie Browns must have the kind of PTSD that gives them seizures every time they watch football and see an attempt at a field goal by now.

This is satire. I have to say that because I went to college, and I know it could very easily be mistaken as serious.
The video above is ostensibly a response to the video below, which is NOT is satire, and if I didn't tell you it would be impossible to know the difference.
My favorite lines are that a government is supposed to take care of it's citizens, and the girl whose grandfather pulled himself up by his own bootstraps, worked his tail off to attain the career of being an attorney, and then a judge, and then taught his granddaughter that there is 0.0000 inches of distance between him an a janitor.
You'll see no disagreement here, that is what their party is about.
Don't get me wrong, being a janitor is hard work because you have to scrub toilets all day long, but that doesn't take any education, anyone can do it.
To be a liberal attorney one goes through a grueling years long education of the law, because like every other profession that thrives on creativity, liberals have to know the rules before knowing how to break them.
That education comes in handy when the time comes for them to go to sleep, I'm assuming they develop the skills to scrub their minds clean in law school, and they're just as dirty as a toilet, if...not.....dirtier....
I kind of see what the girl is trying to say now. Notice how she used janitor as a point of comparison, and not a landscaper, or housekeeper, or burger flipper, or Forever 21 clothes rack jockey.
The only logical conclusion to be drawn from this is that those jobs are indeed better.
Thanks College Democrats, for demonstrating why I'm a conservative.

On the eve of a critical White House summit on the debt issue, Boehner (R-Ohio) told Obama that their plan to “go big,” in the speaker’s words, and forge a compromise that would save more than $4 trillion over the next decade, was crumbling under Obama’s insistence on significant new tax revenue.
From The Washington Post
For years liberals have been bent on applying messianic imagery to Obama...they can add this to their collection...

There are a couple of things we can glean from the latest jobs numbers...
Liberals have spent so much time worry about global warming deniers on the right that they forgot to keep an eye on the most powerful deniers of all, thermometers.
The National Academy of Sciences recently published a paper explaining why Al Gore's hypocrisy is a dish best served hot. Apparently, global warming needs all the help it can get, because in the last decade there really hasn't been any change in the climate.
Isn't it funny what liberals decide they want to effect change on? The federal deficit needs more taxes like Obama needs another tee time, and they can't even raise enough to cover it, but they are in complete denial of the need to fundamentally reform entitlements.
Meanwhile they think Mother Nature can be controlled like the....knobs on her chest....are controls to a big thermostat.
It's not conservatives that liberals should be worried about when it comes to "denying" climate change. It's the science they so ardently defend with religious zeal, and claim the right is at war with.
If conservatives seem to be at war with science then I'll spell out what is really happening...F-R-I-E-N-D-L-Y F-I-R-E
I've never understood the debate over whether or not climate change is happening. I've always been more interested in whether or not it's actually bad...
Maybe global warming sucked for woolly mammoths, but it ain't good enough to heat Al Gore's pool. So if you really want to keep count, Gore's chicken little attitude toward his life's work would make him very close second to "science" in the race to deny it's seriousness.
Conservatives aren't even a distant third here, we're more like critical spectators sitting in the bleachers.
Remember when George W. Bush....after using it's reflection to groom his Hitler stash...would wave his scepter and declare stuff conservatives didn't like unconstitutional?
Law professors, Democratic senators and liberal commentators have recently raised a tantalizing possibility for ending the congressional wrangling over raising the federal limit on borrowing:
President Obama could simply declare the debt ceiling unconstitutional and be done with it.
Advocates of this approach cite the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, which states that the “validity of the public debt of the United States...shall not be questioned.”
From The Washington Post
What an explosive revelation to make after decades of raising the limit. Now that liberals have their backs are against the wall of accountability their strategy is to say the rule shouldn't exist in the first place?!?
This is the line of the 14th amendment they think allows them to steamroll through the ceiling and continue to pile debt ad infinitum, the part in the "..." that the Washington Post conveniently left out of their report is actually the most important part....
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Even if you don't want to take the narrow view that this was an attempt to deal with post Civil War debt. Even if you wanted to ignore the fact that this was so unimportant that it was placed at the very end of the amendment. There is nothing in that language, even generally speaking, that says capping the debt is unconstitutional, especially since everything below the cap, an act of Congress signed into law by the president, is "authorized by law" and EVERYTHING ABOVE IT ISN'T.
If they wanted to hide behind the skirt of 14th amendment, then liberals should look for inspiration in their pandering to Hispanics by waiting until the debt crashes through the ceiling. Then they can declare the ensuing illegal debt anchored to debt that came before it. Then we could fight over debt amnesty.
Liberals could accuse the GOP of wanting to heartlessly send money back to the communist tyranny from whence it came (China, if you're having trouble keeping up). This would actually lead to a watershed moment in American politics to get liberals to forsake condemning anything to a communist state, at least until someone in the GOP comes up with the brilliant endgame strategy of changing the name of the "dollar" into "little Elians."
Then it all goes back, at gunpoint. It's a win-win for the country, because the GOP gets their way while liberals still get to conveniently suspend disbelief in at least one portion of the Constitution.
That logic would still cause Kotex stumping nose bleeds, but it would at least make a lot more sense.
This entire argument takes liberalism's infantile view of the Constitution to a whole new level. Even Obama isn't willing to go along with it because if feces could....excrete....it would stink less and hold more nutritional value than this leftist logic.
That is what qualifies as "tantilizing" in liberal circles these days...feces excrement.
