????? THERE’s A DEAL ?????

Asked on “Fox News Sunday” if the deal could win approval from the conservative House GOP caucus, the party’s chief vote counter, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), was noncommittal; stated, “I think the American people want a balanced budget, that’s where we stand, and that’s what we’ll fight for.”.

Thus the spin has begun – the Republicans are now saying that starving Americans whop have paid into Social Security for forty-five years, is what those Americans want.  But McCarthy is in denial and the Republicans are flat out liars – what America wants is the Budget Surplus that we had under Clinton.  It was a surplus that allowed for, and fully funded, entitlements and education.  It was a surplus that the Republicans squandered …

OK … so we are now going to have a year of bullshit spinning of the Republican attempts to destroy America … the majority is likely to buy it … and allow the Tea Party to retain it’s power.

Let’s see the votes.

Two Days left.

Will they find a way to screw us over?


Just came across a book on American Education … “The Manufactured Crisis” by David C. Berliner  and Bruce J Biddle … interesting.  Interesting in that it makes reference to the various ways those who promote “The Most Harm to the Most People” have been applying their techniques to the American Educational system – for at least 40 years.

One of the neat things about the destruction of education is the opposition to things that work – and the efforts to undermine realities.  We see this in Washington – do Senators and Congressman really need big staffs?   Why can’t they do their jobs – rather than party and “press the flesh”?  How much of their year is spent behind their REAL desks – the ones where votes are counted and debates held?

If we want a balanced budget, put computers on their desks, require they to learn to use them, and have them analyze EVERY DOLLAR they spent.  If it doesn’t put more into society than it takes out … don’t spend it.  The original Constitution stated that those who owned real assets (land) were the ones to pay taxes.  Let’s go back to that – those who own the businesses, the corporations, the million and billionaires, get taxed first – when they are out of money, only then do their employees get taxed.

GEE – They would very quickly strip the government of waste … if only to lower the amount of money the government needed to function and thus the amount of taxes demanded … it would be a free market economy response. (which they supposedly advocate).  But remember the goal:


Providing that excludes those in power.

Hey guy – Sunday, 1:38 – Anyone addressing that artificial the Debt Ceiling?

Employee Notice: New Government Benefits Programs (Just too funny)

EMPLOYEE NOTICE: New Government Benefits Programs

Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, Congress has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.

This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to Congress to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).

Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).

A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Congress deems appropriate.

Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by Congress.

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. Congress has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens.

Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your Congressman, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

Another means of expressing:


Friday, July 29, 2011


By a vote of 218 to 210, the House narrowly passed GOP-Boehner debt-limit legislation Friday after Republican leaders revised it to gain the support of recalcitrant tea party conservatives, but Senate Democrats declared it dead on arrival.  The game is now to get a bipartisan plan that would raise the federal debt ceiling ahead of a potentially catastrophic U.S. default on Aug. 2.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked: “Why is it that the Republicans insist on having the middle class pay the price so the high end is off the hook?”

Obviously a rhetorical question – the wealth need to retain assets to use when the economy collapses.  But the Republicans want the economy to collapse – it must collapse!  They have been working to achieve that for over thirty years.

How close to the brink are they willing to go?  They need to set the stage for 2012.  But it is beginning to look like the real goal is to set the stage for 2016 – at which time, the horrors they create today cane be blamed on the Democrats.  Remember.  The long term goal is:



In January 2001, the U.S. budget was balanced for the first time in decades and the Congressional Budget Office was forecasting surpluses totaling $5.6 trillion by 2011.  George W Bush than overspent by $6.9 Trillion…. in the process he:

1.  forced energy prices up, by destroying Saddam Hussein and disrupting Iraqi suppression of OPEC power.

2. Allowed Bin Laden to escape and live in luxury within eyesight of those supposedly charged with seeking him out.

3. Encouraged the lending & housing Bubble which caused the current economic collapse.

4. Almost privatized Social Security – and certainly disrupted, or undermined, it by squandering the Trust Fund capital which was invested in Treasury Bonds … an investment the Republicans now want to default on.

The Republicans outsourced critical jobs – by encouraging tax breaks for companies and businessmen who moved their operations to other nations.  The lowered taxes with promises that their actions would “would lead to higher revenues and would force lower spending” … House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer has pointed out, “They did neither.”

We are now in a weekend countdown with FOUR DAY left before the Republicans manage to undermine local economies around the nation … but doing what Bush failed to do: destroy the social security portion of the economy.

For those who do not understand how it works:  Social Security is “Spending Money” – it is money paid to people who believed it would cover their retirement living expenses; it is pumped into the economy – a structural stimulus package which has been pre-invested for just this period in history.  Every dollar spent will circulate locally 7 to 10 times before it leaves the community where the retiree resides.  Give someone $1000 a month and you inject 7000 to 10000 into their community – at a grass roots level … you create a tide that rises and carries everyone up.  At a multiplier of 7 to 10, every thousand dollars of Social Security generates $980 to $1,400 of revenue into the social security fund …  In effect, Social Security (for those who need it to live on) social security income generates more income for the government than it takes … or it is a zero-sum expenditure.  Unspent money goes to savings and funds personal debt (home loans).  Medical – Medicaid & Medicare – have the same effect … they free personal income for circulation in the local economy, while, at the same time, providing funds to medical workers and improving the health of those retirees who wish to supplement their income by working, or do unpaid caregiver work … or, because they don’t themselves need caregivers, … allowing their families to work…

The Republicans have, consistently, opposed any effort to strengthen our economy … what they have done has been consistent … they promote:


Thursday, July 28, 2011


Ok, here’s how it works – Thursday the House votes to support Republican plans to destroy the nation.

Boehner wins … America goes down the tubes – with the Baby-Boom Social Security and Entitlements being erased … No question … will serve them right for allowing the GOP to have years (in power) to set them up for economic hardship in their retirement years.

The game is simple – we play this again next year … just in time for elections … a year of spin and reliance on the gross stupidity of the average America voter – that’s what the GOP has going for it … and we can expect them to milk it.

The one thing we know – and history supports – is that there are NO Republicans who give a shit about America … all they care about is their own personal wealth and the guys who bribe them.

The Default Fun Goes On

According to The NY Times (July 26, 2011, “A Denial of Reality”)  this is a question and its answer: “How can so many Republican lawmakers justify pushing their country toward catastrophic default just to score ideological points? The answer can be found in their statements and writings:

They are constructing an alternative reality far different from that of most Americans.”

Contrary to what you have read here – with regard to the destructive results – per the Times article, the Republican controllers  have affirmed that they they seek “The Most Harm to the Most People”: “An arm of the Heritage Foundation sent out a letter Tuesday saying the government should live under the current debt ceiling rather than pass the Boehner plan, ignoring the need to raise the ceiling to pay for bills already incurred. Several right-wing bloggers, notably Erick Erickson of RedState, have threatened brimstone on any errant Republican lawmaker who even considers compromise with the president.”

Note that they have specifically advocated for NOT covering debts incurred already.  Basically, they want the system to collapse – after they very openly, vigorously, and intentionally doubled the National debt under Bush.  What did we get for that double?  Aside from eliminating taxes on the wealthy so they could export jobs and tax revenues to third world nations – where they escape taxes and employ child, or defacto-slave, labor?

The current Republican Party has only one goal – the end to America and individual freedom around the world.  How else can the Right-wing Evangelicals get their King, their divine monarchy and theocratic dictatorship?

Raising Taxes on Poor – the Debt Deal

Here’s how it seems to be going:  The Republicans, under Bush, cut taxes and created a huge national Debt and deficit; the current proposals -- to be enacted by Tuesday, 2 August 2011, or the government defaults on the result of GOP fiscal irresponsibility – will lower Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid.  Thus they will reduce income in real terms, and compund that reduction with an increase in medical costs for those least able to afford it, but most in need of it due to their advanced age – after, I might note, they served our nation for at least 45 years … paying into the system for the security which is now being deprived them.


Doesn’t it involve the GOVERNMENT taking money that you could otherwise use to cover your living expenses?

Is there any difference between the government taxing you more, or paying you less?  Aren’t both effectively the same?   Of course there is a difference – in the first case, those who actually have income – surplus income – pay into the system; in the second, those who have paid in for insurance and security see the government default on its lawful contractual obligation.  Thus, in order not to default on debts to those who are effectively billionaire  & trillionaire creditors (nations and OPEC monarchs who couldn’t give a damned about us – but have yet to find a way to destroy us), we are going to destroy those who built and defended this nation for over a half century.  Makes perfect sense.  Pure and natural GOP logic.

“The Most Harm to the Most People”

Starting with those least able to defend themselves. 

Republican Budget Lies

Fiscal responsibility?  Look to Bush …

AP report when Bush raised debt ceiling: "The Bush administration said the need to borrow in the third quarter reflects a short-term cash squeeze and doesn't signal a move from budget surplus to deficit."

Of course, it turned out to be  complete nonsense, necessitated by classic GOP fiscal irresponsibility.

“The total Bush added to the deficit was almost $4 trillion and, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Bush's two tax cuts and two wars will account for nearly half of public debt projected by 2019.” (Huffington Post)

Now the Republicans are determined to finish the job – they want to destroy economy, by removing the Social Security that was integrated into the retirement plans of half the adult population.  Remember, Bush tried this when he was promoting the  idea privatization  -- so that an economic crash would wipe out the retirement funds… and private sector capitalism would be blamed.  Having failed at that, the GOP now wants to take direct action – destroy America’s credit through default.  That will cause a collapse and again serve their purposes.


Economic collapse opens the door to war and the emergence of a totalitarian state – a fabled Kingdom of Christ to be sold to the Republican evangelicals.

But, in fact, a simple dictatorship with theocratic overtones & underpinning.  Basically, a return to the dark ages.

Budget Priorities 2011

Washington Post July 24, 2011: “Military-led probe cites "credible evidence" that U.S. taxpayer money has been indirectly funneled to the Taliban under a $2.16 billion transportation contract that the United States has funded in part to promote Afghan businesses.”

So?  Why not continue the military bullshit and fund it through cuts to Social Security & other programs?

One piece of the Military-Republican conspiracy … to funnel money from the economy … accounts for 2% of the Trillion Dollar temporary Budget Deal that the GOP both offers and rejects.

Please … let’s stop the games and just turn the guns on our cities … fats death trumps slow death after the economic collapse.

MELT DOWN – Tea Party Style

From:  The Great Evil By CHARLES M. BLOW, July 22, 2011

“A report released Friday by the Pew Research Center found that the Republican Party has made tremendous gains in party affiliation among whites since President Obama took office. This would be understandable if the largest gains were among the wealthy, but they weren’t. They were among the poor, the young and less educated — many of the same people who would be adversely affected by G.O.P. policies. (Blacks held relatively steady, and Hispanics fell.)   I guess if people with the money can convince you that destruction is a jobs program, anything is possible.”

Note that “The Most Harm” doctrine mandates that education be cut (with a commensurate promotion of evangelical brainwashing) so as to create more  dummies who will support their own destruction and the destruction of America.  The target demographic is “poor, the young and less educated “ and white… actually, they are the same demographic targeted by neo-Nazis.

The wealthy need not increase representation in the Republican Party – it is already moving in the right direction with all appropriate speed to reach the destructive destination on schedule.  Thus, those with the means to do so are already seeking refuge and awaiting the destructive phase.

Beauty of it all?  If they don’t default now, they get to destroy things later.  Obama will win in 2012 – the GOP is going to great lengths to avoid running a viable candidate.  With more Congressional seats going to the GOP, the economy will crash and they will have won the 2016 Whitehouse.  At that point, they will arrange for a terrorist attack on American soil, retaliate against some unrelated OPEC nation, and cause the economy to tank further… until they can force us into a third world war – with nuclear options exercised.  After all, their agenda does call for:

GOP Destroys America (details to follow)

House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) appears to believe that there should be a  government default 11 days from now …

With the baby-boomers in the process of retiring, Boehner wants $650 billion in cuts to “entitlement programs” – think the things like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.   You know, the programs for those retiring people who have been whipped out by the GOP promoted economic bubble…

No question.  America needs to default on any and all contractual obligations.  We need our interest rates to rise … that is, interest paid, not earned … unless it is interest earned by China and others who purchase our debt obligations.

“The Most Harm to the Most People.”

John A. Boehner  point man!

Reagan Guides Tea Party

Ronald Reagan said: “Congress consistently brings the government to the edge of default before facing its responsibility.  This brinkmanship threatens the holders of government bonds and those who rely on Social Security and veterans benefits. Interest rates would skyrocket, instability would occur in financial markets, and the federal deficit would soar. The United States has a special responsibility to itself and the world to meet its obligations.”

Thus we have a clear blueprint for the Tea Party idea of extreme conservative action.  It is important that we see the destruction of America – which is the whole point of the Tea Party.  They take their name from the symbolic destruction of the English- American Tea Trade … their goal is to make the symbolic name a historic reality.

On July 19th, Tea Party Republicans, voted on legislation to “cut, cap and balance” government spending permanently at 18% of GDP.  Of course, these same Republicans will promote additional military expenditures – focusing on items that are, in reality, unusable in conflicts of the type we have been engaged in.  They will then expand the military involvement so that the budget will demand additional expenditures – to be paid for from cuts to domestic programs.

GOP Goal Possible

Yep, it is possible that we shall have the “Most Harm to the Most People” … indirectly.

There is an indirect connection between Europe’s problems with the Greek economy, and those facing America if the Republicans achieve their objective.

News is emerging that the real cause behind the mass GOP stupidity that is emerging is one man: Grover Norquist, leader of Tax Reform – he’s apparently gotten the GOP idiots to sign agreements to oppose all that is necessary to balance the budget and raise money to pay off the debts amassed by Reagan & Bush ... that is their quadrupling of the National Debt with nothing to show for it.

The International Monetary Fund said Tuesday that the euro, a currency born a decade ago out of the post-World War II urge to knit Western European nations more closely together, was under “a shadow” and hinted it might not survive the current battle over government debt.

PLEASE give the man a hand.

Without him, we wouldn’t owe 80% of our debt.

Eric Cantor America’s Al-Qaeda Rep

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) :: Seventh District of Virginia appears to be the new al Qaeda power in America.  Where Bin Laden could not bring about our economic destruction on 9/11, it has fallen to their domestic supporter, Rep Eric Cantor, to do the job – his tactic is simple … stop the budget process and send America into debt default.
Al Qaeda Representative have emerged as the House "Hell No" Caucus – with Cantor as their right-wing extremist leader … they are using the usual “MOST HARM” budget demands to stonewall an agreement with President Obama.



It is the Republican agenda, and clearly explains why they preach fiscal responsibility but, when in power, squander our wealth and double our debts.

Those who want America to be marginalized – to become another Greece … an economic disaster and historic footnote of a by-gone age of glory … those people will be backing Cantor and whoever the GOP wants to see elected … be it a dogcatcher, President, or anything in between.

Remember the objective:



GOP does what Al-Qaeda failed to do.

Friday, July 15, 2011


The House’s fervent budget-cutters, 13 legislators who have said they won’t raise the debt ceiling without a promise to slash government spending, each spent more than $50,000 -- IN THREE MONTHS and MORE THAN SIX TIMES the Congressional average -- on mailings carried smiling pictures of the congressmen and messages about their work on the Hill.

In short, those who are the most intent on obstructing the government are PERSONALLY responsible for disproportionate spending in the area over which they have direct control.

How much have they squandered in areas where the direc5t causal relationship is hidden from public viewing?  How many BILLIONS have they squandered through privileged legislation and smoke filled room manipulations?

Remeber -- these are the know ringleaders in the program to destroy America and inflict:


Rep. Richard Nugent (R-Fla.), a freshmen, spent $64,292 in the first quarter of 2011
Rep. Cliff Stearns (R), in Congress since 1989, spent $67,420
Rep. Tom Reed (R), a freshman from New York, spent $69,439
Rep. Dennis Cardoza (Calif.), spent $57,494.
Rep. Timothy H. Bishop (N.Y.), spent $55,640
But they are pikers compared to:
Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.), who spent $142,198 In the first quarter of 2011



Clearly the most efficient means of any to ensure the full destruction of America is rooted in the blind support of the GOP and the Right-wing agenda. 

Went Reality is ignored.

An example being: NY Times, July 14, 2011 Death and Budgets, By DAVID BROOKS

Think about this statement: “The fiscal crisis is driven largely by health care costs. We have the illusion that in spending so much on health care we are radically improving the quality of our lives. We have the illusion that through advances in medical research we are in the process of eradicating deadly diseases. We have the barely suppressed hope that someday all this spending and innovation will produce something close to immortality.”

Reality Check – we spend more on health care, and get less, than any other industrialized nation.  It is not the drive to provide healthcare and extend life, that is the problem.  It is the insistence on private companies handling the doling out of care – the systematic denial of care prior to it the point where the only care that can be utilized is catastrophic care.  WHERE IS THE PREVENTATIVE?  Where will we find an Insurance Company that mandates an  annual examination?  Where are they who mandate dental care – to prevent problems which will suppress the immune system and allow other problems to emerge … where are they imposing dietary demands ??? attacking the food industry for the extra high salt and fat in the average product … where are they?

NO!  The healthcare industry is controlled by an insurance industry … which denies care … does stop-gap care … and they dumps the sickly that they have created into the public sector services under the Medicaid and Medicare system.

Remember, the reality of our government is that it is controlled by those who want":


If the cost of healthcare bothers you – terminate the private insurance … that’s the source of the cost.  Let that $600 per month payment by families go into the economy … hell, you could take half the current premiums – in exchange for universal care – and the average family would cheer the savings … if you told them they were getting one so they would look at their checkbook and verify the reality.

Why do we buy insurance (using after tax money)?  Why is it that the real cost is carried by those with the least amount of tax obligation – so a deduction is meaningless?  Why do we subsidize people with money to burn -- Those who are always making a show of how much they can give away? 

We all know the answer … it is the only way to ensure that we achieve


EDITORIAL worth Forwarding

A Terrible Pledge, Editorial
Published (In the FORWARD) July 13, 2011, issue of July 22, 2011.

Will abortion affect voters’ decisions in 2012? Probably not. As The New York Times reports, less than 1 percent told its nationwide poll this year and last that abortion was the top problem facing the country.

But that hasn’t stopped the Susan B. Anthony List from demanding fealty to their extreme anti-abortion views from all in the crowded GOP field to become president. By extreme, we mean taking a pledge to appoint only pro-life judges, cabinet members and top federal executives; cut off federal funding to hospitals and clinics that happen to perform or fund abortions, and support legislation to further restrict what is, let’s remember, a legal option for American women.

Mitt Romney, Jon M. Huntsman Jr., Herbert Cain and Gary Johnson are the only Republican presidential candidates so far who have declined to sign this pledge, and they have been fiercely criticized by the rest of the pack for being insufficiently ideologically pure.

The Susan B. Anthony folks promise to use this litmus test as a character evaluation in the coming election. We all should. No one who signs such a pledge — one that defies existing federal law, censors speech and damages health care in this country — deserves to be president. We’ll remember, too.


“The Most Harm to The Most People”

Like the Tea Party folks, The Susan B. Anthony folks, are interested in violating American ideals for the purpose of inflicting significant harm on the people and the economy.

Maybe you don’t get the connection between abortion, or the so-called “right to life”, and the economy.  Especially since “right to life” is alleged to be a religiously supported – even though anyone who has actually read the Bible knows that the rights begin AT BIRTH, not before; that the fetus is considered murdered only if its loss is the result of a violent attack on a pregnant woman.  If we argue that abortion constitutes such an attack, then the scripture demands that the doctors & nurses be executed for murder.  Fail to do that, and those who call it murder are spiritual accomplices to the crime and so shall also be spiritually  condemned for that crime.

There is another problem – far more significant – associated with the the “right to life”camp.  They rely upon the Old Testiment, but are generally composed of Christians who claim their spiritual authority through the Pauline Doctrine of Faith … which requires any who cite the Old Testament … the Circumcision, or Laws of Moses … to follow ALL 613 Laws!

Which we all know they do not! Check that pork supper … and the rest of the violations they so openly engage in.   In Terms of St.Paul, these are the spawn of Satan trying to deceive that those who follow a Faith based approach are supposed to avoid.

OK – out on religion.  How about economy?

These are the same people who spend money on weapons of mass destruction, but deny aid  to  the sick, or funding for education – even going so far as to invent funding formulas which deprive those who really need funding.  That weakens the economy by making our worker ill-educated and sickly.  It all relates to the promotion of:

WHO TO PAY? on Aug 3rd

Choices are: Social Security checks, student loans, salaries for members of the military and veterans, unemployment benefits, and many other government programs.

Stop salaries, or Social Security, and you stop commerce … those who are on active duty, or live on base in military housing, don’t really need their paychecks … they have shelter, food and medical care.  But there are arguments to the contrary – but not sufficient to offset effect on local store sales.

If the government hangs the defense contractors … they simply delay paying those who have been robbing the nation for decades.  Screwing the creditors … not paying cash against the debt … that saves billions … same for student loans … colleges can afford to have payments delayed … and since banks and agencies are between the government and colleges … once again professional criminals – responsible for the economic bubble & collapse.

Of course … we know the GOP will do anything to continue the destruction of America – so they will force the default … it would only be fair that those companies that fund them are the ones who are hurt first.  Harm the fewest rather than allow the GOP to fulfill its goal of:


Monday, July 11, 2011


Once more the GOP promotes its guiding policy:

“The Most Harm to the Most People”

The budget crisis is simply an extension of Regan Bush policies that, repeatedly, I have pointed out.  Simply put: The Republicans do not want to pay their debts!  They will let the poor starve, and go hungry; they will leave the sick to become sicker – and they will inflict hardship upon those who have spent their lives in service to the nation and national economy…. those who deserve, who repeatedly earned, the right to a secure retirement.

To quote the President:  

“This is the United States of America, and we don’t manage our affairs in three-month increments; we don’t risk U.S. default on our obligations because we can’t put politics aside.”

Of course, default is what the GOP has been working toward ever since … with their unanimous support … Reagan first doubled the National Debt – and it is something they cheered, and voted for, when Bush redoubled it.  The bankruptcy … default … of the US is one of their Most Harm objectives.

Do YOU see any evidence – much less clear and indisputable evidence – to the contrary?
