Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

More On The Debt Ceiling:

Mr Obama has no real plan.

Have you heard it? What is it?

Does it consist of anything more than spend and tax?

No. It does not.

Mr Obama has already said that he will clearly veto any spending cuts.

Obama officially threatens to veto Republicans' 'cut, cap and balance' bill

By Sam Youngman - 07/18/11 03:58 PM ET

The White House on Monday warned President Obama will veto GOP legislation to “cut, cap and balance” spending and the budget.

I dare, thoughtlessly, to remind you of and reproduce the Top Ten Tenets of Liberalism, at the risk of being redundant:

1. America is uniquely evil.
2. America is never justified in defending itself.
3. Illiterate people from poor societies are superior to Americans.
4. The Earth would be better off without human beings.
5. Making a profit is always immoral.
6. Differences between individuals or groups are unfair.
7. For Designated Victim Groups, strong feelings excuse all behavior.
8. Policies informed by Judæo-Christian principles are inherently suspect.
9. Conservatives are hypocrites; liberals are sincere.
10. There are no acts of God; there are only acts of Government.

That said, Harry Reid is currently excoriating the GOP for failing to extend the debt ceiling.

Imagine that.

Too bad that video and audio exists immuring past statements and positions. In that vein, I submit for your consideration now:

Harry Reid on raising the debt ceiling in 2006:

“If my Republican friends believe that increasing our debt by almost $800 billion today and more than $3 trillion over the last five years is the right thing to do, they should be upfront about it. They should explain why they think more debt is good for the economy.

How can the Republican majority in this Congress explain to their constituents that trillions of dollars in new debt is good for our economy? How can they explain that they think it’s fair to force our children, our grandchildren, our great grandchildren to finance this debt through higher taxes. That’s what it will have to be. Why is it right to increase our nation’s dependence on foreign creditors?

They should explain this. Maybe they can convince the public they’re right. I doubt it. Because most Americans know that increasing debt is the last thing we should be doing. After all, I repeat, the Baby Boomers are about to retire. Under the circumstances, any credible economist would tell you we should be reducing debt, not increasing it.Democrats won’t be making argument to supper this legalization, which will weaken our country. Weaken our county.”

And yet, imagine this: Mr Reid seems to be, at his advanced age, an individual who can't seem to lick the political sphincter of Mr Obama at a more furious rate than now.

Do you, as I, detect the slightest hint of hypocrisy here?

Of course not. And buried by our American media. Because they all are, transparently, licking the hind end of the DC admin in a smartly uniform fashion.

As I've written on another blog:
I am of the opinion that TARP was a huge mistake, ALL the stimulus infusions were a huge mistake, cash for clunkers was a huge mistake, bailing out ANY fiduciary/banking agency was a HUGE mistake, bailing out ANY corporation was a HUGE mistake. It all should have been allowed to come to a much earlier staggering thump and heady crash; had that occurred, we would already be on the road to a kind of recovery that we've done nothing but delay.

When you delay this kind of thing, as Life generally goes, when the crash comes it will be larger, louder, longer and incredibly more painful.

This government can stop right now as far as I'm concerned, and the debt ceiling should never be raised again. The abject insanity simply has to stop. Anyone with a molecule of common sense knows you don't spend to save money. Or get yourself out of debt. If this were a "given" there would be no foreclosures and no poor people. We'd just spend and spend and spend money we don't have. That's how insane it's become.

No extension of the debt ceiling. Let the failure come, if it comes at all due to halting the debt ceiling explosion.

If anarchy comes, it won't be from Caucasoid middle classes; it will come from those on welfare and sucking entitlements and Free Cheese in high-population centers, moms whose baby-daddies are well-armed gangbangers driving Lexuses and Mercedes and Donks of all shapes.

I live 91 miles away from where I work in a population center. I am well-armed, well-stocked, lots of ammo, and I'm old enough to be quite grouchy.

I can't be any more succinct than that.
