Left, Right & Center

Another week, another standoff on Capitol Hill over the ever-pressing debt ceiling issue, with President Obama warning Friday of impending economic “Armageddon” if things don’t get sorted out soon. So what’s the good news? You may have to look elsewhere for that, but for now, listen to show regulars Robert Scheer and Matt Miller, along with special guests David Winston and Laura Tyson, as they break it all down.  —KA

“Pretty soon Obama will be wearing a tube of Vaseline on a chain
around his neck…He is wall streets bitch, and that´s all he´s ever
been right from the start..maybe it will get bad enough that the
military will take over…Otherwise…Civil war is coming… .the north
versus the south all over again…”  prisnersdilemma

Ahhh, prisnersdilema.  Underneath that mournful garb lies the heart
of a genuine romantic. 

The WWII NAZIs and Zionists have developed a murder machine in the
USA, and exported it around the world.  This machine requires
“fodder”.  Until it is STOPPED. 
Being nice, sooth-saying and quoting the allegedly-wise dead, has
never won a battle.  Nor will it clean the infectious human scum out
of U.S.A. leadership. Especially, when Barry Soetoro (Obama) and the
NAZI/Zionist entourage are speeding up the bus.

Why is ANYone surprised that the same Tea Party types that believed in Death Panels and Kenyan birth certificates would reject science, financial experts, and letters from actual business leaders?

Blame the ignorant angry electorate that put them in office.  Their salvation will be Michelle Bachmann.

I hear Canada is lovely this year.  I wonder if I can transfer the few shreds of my 401k that will be left after August 2 into Molson stock.

The real issue should be the restoration of the taxs customarily paid by the wealthy, until they bribed our elected officials to rescind them. The second issue is the bloated military budget, the bloated spy budget and the hidden expenses disguised as things they are not. If this was attended to then the debt ceiling might not even be worth a mention.

Oh, I almost forgot all the leases of government land that is below what the private sector would cost and which is too freqently not paid to the treassury anyway. If the cost were raised to what the land use is really worth, it might actually help too.

By the way has anyone considered that the debt ceiling issue may just be away of diverting the publics attention away from the above?
