(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.

U.S. Budget: THE Definition of Insanity

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, whilst expecting different results."

A quote attributed to both Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.

With that in mind, I have only one quite serious question for Mr Barack Hussein Obama:

Why is it, sir, that you are so incredibly and vehemently opposed to balancing the budget of the United States of America?

That, to my way of thinking, is THE question that should be put to the President of the United States.

This president is only concerned with spending. He has historically resisted all cuts, and history indicates his intransigence in terms of making any spending cuts whatsoever.

Mr Obama clearly lacks the capacity to make the tough spending decisions. Any tough spending decisions.

On that basis, however, he holds his water in terms of Demorat/Leftist platform. Everyone must be taxed, and there can be no cuts in spending.

Taken in retrospect, it is an age-old axiom. Tax and spend, tax and spend = Demorats and Leftists. They are, of course, nothing if not predictable in their consistency.

Let's review in brief:
  • TARP didn't;
  • The "Stimulus" didn't;
  • Bailouts of fiduciary institutions didn't put us on the path to recovery;
  • Bailouts of vehicle manufacturers didn't put us on the path to recovery;
  • The ONE US vehicle manufacturer (Ford) refusing to take bailout money is the MOST successful;
  • "Cash For Clunkers" stimulated nothing;
  • Unemployment is at roughly 10%, up to 25+% in some areas;
  • The housing market is further tanking;
  • The Demorats have done nothing budgetarily beneficial in 800+ days;
  • Housing contract cancellations have surged;
On the other hand, the Gang of Six deal looks remarkably similar to the Pelosi "we'll have to pass the bill in order to see what is in it."

Despite some strong pushback from liberal groups and labor unions to the proposed changes to entitlement programs, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi seemed to leave the door open to the plan, telling reporters, "We haven't seen it but it has some good principles in it."

And that is its own intrinsic kind of separate Demorat/Leftist insanity.

The debt plan from the so-called Gang of Six includes two very shocking aspects:

1. Tax deduction removal (where Mr Obama "gets" his so-called tax "cuts";
2. A constructive insertion of a Constitutional balanced budget amendment;

Let me be, again, please, incredibly and perfectly plain, with an emphasis on clarity:

Tax deductions will be placed on the backs of the Middle Class. There simply are NOT enough "rich" people to enable the cash that Mr Obama wants. The FIRST proposal on the line is the mortgage deduction.

Again, to be plain: there is roughly a 10% cost factored into every house for this.

You eliminate the mortgage deduction? You have, positively, absolutely, GUARANTEED a depression that will make the 1929 Great Depression look like child's play. Housing values will further plummet and incentives will be slaughtered. At best.

And opening the Constitutional for revision, enabled by Article V, for a so-called "Balanced Budget Amendment", is a loser at best. At very best.

The Constitution already exists. SCOTUS has already set it aside in any number of important cases, deciding that current memes are more important than a charred, flaky, doddering document.

What makes anyone think SCOTUS, stacked by a future administration, simply won't strip the Constitution when and while it will, as it will, by fiat?

You open a Constitutional Convention these days and every Bill and Amendment is up for grabs. I won't have it. I thought the GOP asking for a Flag-Burning amendment was clearly stupid, as it was. Opening up our core, founding document for Leftists during this particular administration is, likewise, beyond stupid.


You want to know what tyranny looks and sounds like, kids? Just look around. Check your DEM/MSM. These people are not about liberty or freedom. They're about an agenda. A Stalinist Show Trial. And Mr Obama, in His Infinite Wisdom, isn't responsible for any accountable portion of anything.

Like trying to nail Jello to a wall.

Obama is an avowed socialist, with communist flavor.
He was elected to CHANGE this country.
He will destroy this Republic and after the smouldering ruins cool down, he will "build his socialist, totally governed by his socialist government".

Guess you didn't get anything right. All your dire remarks and predictions turned out WRONG!! Obama has done an excellent job: unemployment steadily decreased, employment/job creation increased. Would have @2 million more jobs if the Republicans would bring the highway bill to the floor, ended the Iraqii war, killed Osama, successfully lead from behind and liberated Libya, provided access to insurance for millions of previously uninsured people, saved GMC which is now the leading car manufacturer in the world, US treasury gained $12 billion from auto LOAN payback, ended DADT, on and on and on. As for being a socialist, the Dow Jones has doubled since he came into office and corporate profits are at record highs - sounds more like a capitalist to me than a socialist or communist. ! Admit it, YOU HAD IT ALL WRONG!!

I guess you don't read the news. You should begin to read more.

-Unemployment is UP to 8.2% Regionally, in Fornicalia, it's 15% to 20%.
- OBAMA has SPENT more than the last FIVE presidents COMBINED.
- Libya certainly isn't "liberated." You might try asking a Libyan.
- GM is NOT the leading car manufacturer in the world. #1 = Toyota. GM is going to CUT a full QUARTER of its pension liabilities.
- Stocks crashed, their worst showing of 2012, on Friday following the jobs DUMP.
- Check this. Yeah, the economy's just booming, right along with that of the rest of the world.
- China and Brazil are running out of steam, and world leaders ARE bracing for a crash.
- Black pastors are not very pleased over Obama's pro-gay marriage stance.
- 766 THOUSAND MORE WOMEN are UNemployed since your loving Mr Obama took office.
- Even Bill Clinton admits that Romney's business record is sterling.
- The US lost 129,000 millionaires in 2011.
- More voters trust REPUBLICANS on the economy than Demorats.

Right, Paula. I sure as hell had it ALL wrong.

Mr Obama is doing EVERYTHING correctly.

Let's see, what's that debt clock indicate? Correct, a $15.8 TRILLION DOLLAR national debt. And what was it about the last FIVE presidents? Oh yeah; see above.

You really got me on this one, Paula!
