On September 12, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released an audiotape saying "We should bleed America economically by provoking it to continue in its massive expenditure on its security, for the weak point of America is its economy, which has already begun to stagger due to the military and security expenditure."
The Speaker of the House of Representatives now has extraordinary powers – granted him by the Tea Party Shutdown and the Republican House Rules Committee. During this, or any other Shutdown, ONE man can stop ALL LEGISLATUION … as much as the Tea Party would like to have you believe otherwise, that man is not the American President, it is a Representative from one state whose party happens to be the majority.
We know al Qaeda intended to destroy the American Economy – the Tea Party has cooperated with that goal in the same way George Bush cooperated with their goal to kill Saddam Hussein. It seems that the Republicans are doing all of al Qaeda’s bucket list items.
When will the nation wakeup and realize that the ‘WAR ON TERROR’ is a war against the Unites States – one in which a segment of the elected American officials is working to destroy America.
OK get upset about that idea – but, for a moment, play scientist (yes they hate science too, but just this once, show intelligence) – test the hypothesis. Ask what al Qaeda has set as a goal, and then see id the Tea Party actions will assist in their achievement. Does a US default, which destabilizes the global economy, assist al Qaeda? Do they gain if we have to cut Border Patrols or Homeland Security? Do they gain if, to pay for Border Patrols we will need to cut SNAP and Social Security? Do they gain if the Treasury Notes plunge in value – or are deemed worthless within the BOND MARKET?
Treasury Notes are the “Social Security Trust Fund” and, as part of the pay-as-you-go system, need to be sold to cover the growing outlays caused by the Baby-Boom retirement. If they lose pre-maturity market value, the underpinning of Social Security is jeopardized.
Countdown is in progress … the dawn of doomsday approaches.
ALLOW THE TEA PARTY its power to destroy America. They began before they had the name. Now we END their decades long effort.
November first is actually the critical date – the Date when Social Security checks stop.
