Let’s Just Throw Them Some Old People

12 Feb

And Maybe They Won’t Eat The Rest Of Us.

Well, we’re off to pretty much the start I expected.  From “read my lips, no cuts to Social Security”  to so called  technical adjustments in the way cost of living adjustments are calculated… which just HAPPEN to amount to cuts in benefits.  “Oh”, cry the Pagmatic Progressives,”but it’s but only over an X amount of time and only to an X degree and has its worst impact only on an X number of recipients.”.  And of course this paradigm shift in supposedly left wing thinking all occurs in the space of time between now and when they realized that our president was not only considering it but was by God going to insist on it.  Pardon me folks, but really, I’ve heard and seen all this before.

Those of you that don’t see Chained CPI as a problem worthy of your attention or at best just another excuse to make witty little jabs at the “EMOs” and the “professional left” are obviously those whose retirement income will largely derive from sources other than Social Security which would naturally explain why it is no big thing to you.  Indeed I suspect that the most vocal of you… the ones who not only dismiss CCPI is “inconsequential” but actively promote it in your tweets and on your blogs are those who would actually derive some form of profit or other boon from a reduction in benefits to the poorest of seniors.  Kind of like you might get a bigger return from your return on investments today than you would get in the form of SS benefits later.  I really don’t see any other explanation emerging from the fog of gobbledygook surrounding the issue, much of it being created and maintained by a Democratic administration.

426704_487679231295469_195447863_nOf course, I’m one of those who grew up when the distinction between left and right… or at least Republicans and Democrats… was a lot clearer than it is today but I honestly never thought I’d see the day when a proposal for ANY kind of cut to SS benefits would be made by a Democrat nor did I ever dream of a day when so many who tout themselves as “liberals” or refer to themselves as the “left” would support such a proposal.  But then I’ve seen a lot of things I never thought I’d see over the past thirty years or so, a period during which the only two democrats elected president have offered up “concessions” and proposals that would have been considered Republican wet dreams in the heady days of my youth.  Of course, those days have long since given way to the rants and rambling of the cynical and perhaps typical “cranky old man” that you see on these pages but really… there was a day when I believed all that crap about equality and opportunity and government of the people by and for the people.

I’d like to ask a few questions of those of you that either support or dismiss chained CPI that should be fairly simple to answer.

1.  In view of the fact that Social Security has no discernible impact on the debt… other than the fact that the SS trust fund is probably the US government’s largest single creditor… why is this whole thing of opening the door to what we all know will eventually be wholesale “adjustments” up to and including the privatization of Social Security so important to all of you on the right including those on the right who call themselves the left?

2.  Why are you “true Progressives” going to the extent of hammering those who oppose it with the same of  kind name calling, ad hominem attacks, derision and just general bashing that the right wingers employ in their opposition to anything they don’t agree with?  It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to be hammering RWs for making war on the left when you yourselves make the same kind of attacks on those you consider to the left of yourselves.

3.  For a really novel approach How about y’all support the notion that the government should simply pay back what it owes the trust fun in the form of all those bonds and T-bills through which it borrowed the bucks to finance the Bush tax cuts… from which you are obviously enjoying your little windfalls as much as any Wall Street right winger… and then simply administer the trust fund in the manner which was intended when it was set up in the first place?

The only real “problem” with Social Security is the fact that people… YOU people… have “borrowed” from it to pay for maintaining your own little middle class lifestyles under the Bush tax cuts.  Well, that and the enrichment of corporations and war profiteers that make up the Sovereign Nation of Wall Street who like the taking part of “give and take” a whole lot more than they do the giving.  Pay the goddamned money you owe to Social Security and we’re good to go.

Instead you start chiming right in with the “shared sacrifice” bullshit again and start helping the right find ways to make the worst off among us support the excesses of those who not only refuse to pay their fair share based on the amount they take but who still manage to keep a hand in the taxpayers pocket in the form of subsidies, bailouts, racketeering and just generally screwing the American people out of anything they can get their tentacles wrapped around.

Look, you want to be a right winger, then have the goddamned balls to call yourself one.  Don’t give me this bullshit about stripping away the shredded strings that are already all that’s left of the social safety net or the freedoms and rights that made this country what it used to be… and then call yourself a Liberal or a Progressive.  There is NOTHING progressive about sitting on your asses pecking away at your little keyboards in support of issues… and as you would have us believe in this case, non issues… that only serve the purposes of the parasites on Wall Street and do harm to those whom you might feel no longer contribute enough to your own agenda.  That’s right wing bullshit and anyone who engages in it is a right winger to those of us who can still tell the difference.

Anyone looking to cut through the Conservative/Progressive bullshit on chained CPI can check HERE:   Of course if you’re among those that would rather see an extra buck or two in your dividend check today and won’t have to depend on SS as your sole source of income in your old age, I suspect that cutting through the bullshit is the last thing on your mind.

    If you could make podcasts of these, I’d air them. Otherwise I have to convert them using a text-to-speech utility, which because of errors in the way they come out, requires heavy editing (spaces removed, some spaces added, special spelling required, and so on.

    A real human voice saying it would be much better. I check here regularly because what you say (and how you say it) is almost exactly what I would say. Perfect for community affairs and clips in rotation. I operate 3 stations. The first (104.1) plays smooth jazz, the second (93.1) mostly rock (which is where I do community affairs and other productions) and the third (101.3) plays muzak for local businesses or just something relaxing to listen to.

    Another person I’d air podcasts of is Authur Silber – http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/

    but he only writes sporadically and is in poor health. Doesn’t seem to have a comment box either, so I haven’t proposed airing him. I’ve offered airing washingtons blog, and exiled online, if they would do podcasts too, but they never did. Exiled has moved away from what they were posting before (stuff about the occupy tactic) – same for washingtons blog.. What you write would be perfect though, and you stay consistent in staying focused on what’s important, like I do.

    The clips I air now are mostly text-to-speech, since if I have something to say that I can’t say from memory, I just have the text-to-speech handle it. Part of being a real DJ to me means not reading from a script or cue card. The second best solution would be for me to put your writing up on a monitor near the microphone and read it. On rare occasions I’ll do that, but I’m not set up (a dozen computers crammed into a small room, little choice on how to arrange them – mixed in with other equipment) I never set this up with the intent of comfortably reading into the mic, so now with so much equipment (added 2 more stations since then) it would be difficult to re-arrange the layout.

    If you could speak into a mic and record it, then post a link where I could download it, it would be highly appreciated.

    (the email is no longer active – became flooded with spam. The website is up but an .onion hidden service site, reachable only through Tor – http://www.torproject.org/)

      I’ll definitely look into the idea. Most of the time I can’t even carry on a normal phone conversation because of the breathing problems but this looks like something I could spread over a few hours in 3-4 sessions.

    I just ran your top post through the text-to-speech converter. I took 8:20 to speak it.

    I thought this was pretty funny

    Colbert: Don’t Worry, Sen. Rubio, Nobody Noticed… That You Gave a Speech

    [video src="http://crooksandliars.com/medialoader/26694/15dd4/wmv/TCR-SOTU-Rubio-021313.wmv" /]

    After watching that, I decided to check the transcript

    http://www.npr.org/2013/02/12/171841996/transcript-gop-response-to-state-of-the-union-address

    And so I had an overwelming urge to re-write it, for airing :

    Good evening. I’m Marco Rubio.

    Good evening, I’m a war cock sucking piece of shit.

    And I am especially honored to be addressing our brave men and women serving in the armed forces and in diplomatic posts around the world. You may be thousands of miles away, but you are always in our prayers.

    And I am especially honored to be addressing our war criminals, serving war profiteers, and bankster crooks, in empire posts around the world. You may be thousands of miles away, but you will always be cheap cannon fodder.

    But America is exceptional because we believe that every prisoner, on death row, is precious, and that every christian everywhere has a God-given right to cram their religion as far as the corporate media will take them.

    This opportunity, suck the middle class dry, or beyond, no matter how many millions you start out with in life, it isn’t bestowed on us from regulations from Washington.

    It comes from a predatory free economy, where billionaires can risk other people’s money, to buy politicians.

    Presidents in both parties, from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan, have known that the predatory capitalist economy is the source of our middle class poverty.

    But President Obama? He, and 86 % of the population, believes it’s the cause of our problems.

    That the greater depression happened because our government didn’t jail enough, regulate enough and investigate enough.

    And, therefore, as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face, is for Washington to jail more, regulate more and investigate more.

    This idea, that our problems were caused by a government that was too small, it’s true.

    In fact, a major cause of the greater depression was a housing crisis created by bankster crooks, and their bought politicians.

    And the idea that more banking regulations and more government oversight is the best way to help hardworking middle class taxpayers, that’s an old idea that’s worked every time, the banks caused a depression.

    More billionaries aren’t going to help you get ahead. They’ll continue to hold you back.

    More billionaries aren’t going to create more opportunities. They’ll continue to limit them.

    And more regulations on bankster crooks isn’t going to prevent predatory capitalist exploitation, new bubbles and new privatisation scams. It’s going to create certainty.

    Because better government breeds fair rules and laws that billionares don’t wish to follow.

    Because better government raises taxes on billionares who then pay their fair share and reduce costs to employees through less hours, more pay and even vacation time.

    And because many government programs that claim to help the middle class, often end up hurting billionares profits as well.

    For example, heritage care was supposed to help middle class Americans afford private health insurance.

    But now, some insurance companies are screwing the working class even more. And because heritage care created expensive private health insurance requirements for corporations with more than 50 employees, now many of these corporations skirting.
    Not only that, they’re being forced to evade taxes in off shore tax havens and ship jobs overseas.

    Now does this mean there’s no role for government? Of course not. It plays a crucial part in having the pentacunt suck us dry, enforcing rules only on the lower classes, and providing cover for the bankster crooks.

    But government’s role is wisely limited by a 200 year old god damned piece of paper.

    And it can’t play its essential role when it’s bought and paid for by billionaires.

    There are valid reasons for billionaires and corporate criminals to be concerned about the President’s plan to fix our government.

    But any time billionaires and corporate criminals oppose the President’s agenda, he and 86 % of the population, usually respond by factually pointing out their motives.

    When us billionaires and corporate criminals point out that no matter how many pollution-killing laws we pass, our pollution can’t control the weather, he and 86 % of the population, accuses us of wanting dirty water and dirty air.

    When us billionaires and corporate criminals suggest we strengthen your safety net programs by giving corporate criminals more flexibility to privatise and stip them bare, he and 86 % of the population accuse us of wanting to leave the elderly and disabled to fend for themselves.

    And tonight, he even criticized us for refusing to raise taxes to delay miniscule military cuts, cuts that were both parties idea in the first place.

    But his, and 99 % of the population’s favorite factual point of all, is that those who don’t agree with him, and 99 % of the population, that we only care about billionaires, corporate criminals, bankster crooks and war profiteers.

    Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the predatory capitalists, through the I M F and world bank decimated the economy.

    But I don’t give a fuck about them. They’re only a stage prop, I only care about the koch brothers.

    The tax increases and the deficit spending you and 99 % of the population propose will hurt billionaires, corporate criminals, bankster crooks and war profiteers. It will cost them their bonuses. It will cost them their off shore tax shelters.

    It may even cost some of them their seventh house.

    And it will hurt predatory capitalists because it does nothing to gut Medicare and Social Security.

    So Mr. President, I oppose your and 99 % of the population’s plans because I want to protect the rich.

    I oppose your and 99 % of the population’s plans because I want to protect my sugar daddies.

    Lazy billionaires don’t need us to come up with a plan to fix the government.

    They want a plan to grow their already obscene wealth.

    Taxing the rich is the best way to help the middle class. Unfortunately, our economy actually shrank during the last three months of 2012.

    But if we can tax the rich just 4 percent a year, and end tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, it would create millions of middle class jobs. And it could reduce our deficits by almost $4 trillion dollars over the next decade.

    Tax increases on the rich will do this. Ending tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, will create private sector jobs.

    And greatly shrinking the huge bloated fucking pentacunt budget will lower the deficit by far more than $4 trillion.

    That’s why I hope the President and 99 % of the population will continue raising taxes on the rich, and tell us to go fuck ourselves to achieve income equality.

    One of the best ways to encourage growth is through renewable energy. Of course solar and wind energy should be all we concentrate on, like Germany is doing, with great success.

    But God also blessed billionaires and corporate criminals with filthy dirty coal, oil and fracking gas.

    Instead of wasting more taxpayer money on fossil fuel corporate criminals like exxon, let’s build more wind and solar farms on federal lands for safe and renewable energy.

    And let’s reform our energy regulations so that those responsible for polluting our land, air and water, pay for cleaning up the mess they’ve created for profit.

    If we can grow our clean renewable energy industry, it will make us energy independent, it will create middle class jobs and ending tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, will help bring manufacturing back from places like China.

    Simplifying our tax code, like a capital gains, off shoring, tax haven, estate, and stock transaction tax, will also help the middle class, because it will make it easier for small businesses to hire and grow.

    And we disagree with the President that we should lower our corporate tax rate, which is one of the lowest in the world, the lowest it’s been here in 60 years, and ending tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, so that corporate criminals will start bringing their money and their jobs back here from overseas.

    We can also help our economy grow if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to exploit and use the world’s poorest and most powerless for back breaking labor. We need a responsible, permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally, doing our dirty work while they pay far more in regressive taxes than they get back.

    But first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to go after the corporate criminals that hire them while immigration authorities look the other way, and enforce our laws, on, those corporate criminals.

    Helping all classes of people grow will also require an education system that gives people the knowledge to question authority, to think for themselves, and be much more engaged in challenging today’s politicians, media whores and other con men.

    We need to incentivize local school districts to offer more advanced critical thinking courses, and more fine arts, and other time honored ways to teach people, how to think for themselves.

    We need to give all parents, especially the parents of children with special needs, the opportunity to send their children to the public school of their choice.

    And because private tuition costs have grown so fast, we need to change the way we pay for higher public education.

    I believe in federal financial aid. I couldn’t have gone to college without it. But it’s not just about spending more money on these programs, it’s also about strengthening and modernizing public universities.

    A 21st century populace should not be forced to accept 19th century education solutions.

    Today’s students aren’t only 18 year olds. They’re returning war criminals. They’re single parents who are forced to get the re-education they need to be a mindless worker. And they’re workers who we have off shored their jobs that without ending off shore tax subsidies, are never coming back and need to be retrained.

    We need student aid that does not fund private for profit institutions.

    When I finished school, I owed over 100,000 dollars in student loans, a debt I paid off just a few months ago.

    Today, many graduates face massive student debt.

    We must end predatory loans and funding private, for profit institutions, and make a free public university education a right for everyone.

    All these measures are key to helping the economy grow.

    But we won’t be able to sustain a vibrant middle class unless we solve our debt problem.

    a debt problem, we created, by endless war, and tax cuts for the rich.

    Every dollar our government borrows is money that isn’t being invested to create jobs. And the uncertainty created by the debt is one tiny reason why many corporate criminals aren’t hiring. The major reason is tax subsidies for off shoring jobs.

    The President and 86 % of the population, loves to truefully blame the debt on President Bush.

    But President Obama created more debt in four years than his predecessor did in eight.

    Nevermind bush started with a huge surplus, and ended with the biggest deficit in history, with tax cuts for the rich and wars based on lies.

    The real cause of our debt is tax cuts for the rich and endless wars.

    That’s why we need the rich to start paying their fair share, and end, endless wars.

    The biggest obstacles to balancing the budget are tax cuts for the rich and endless wars

    One of these parasites, the pentacunt, is especially important to me.

    It provided me with the funds I needed to battle truth and ultimately sell my soul to war criminals.

    And it pays for the ads I run now.

    I would never support any changes to the pentacunt that would hurt war criminal hacks like me.

    But anyone who is in favor of leaving the pentacunt exactly the way it is right now, is in favor of bankrupting us.

    Republicans have offered a detailed and credible plan that helps save the pentacunt without hurting today’s war criminals.

    Instead of playing politics with the pentacunt, when is the President and 86 % of the population, going to offer our plan to shrink it?

    Now would be a good time for us to do it.

    Of course, we face other challenges as well. Us gun nuts were pretending to be all heart broken by the recent tragedy in Connecticut. We must effectively not deal with the rise of violence in our country.

    But unconstitutionally undermining the 1st, 4th, 5’th and 12’th Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, while distracting us with only the 2nd, is not the way to do it.

    On foreign policy, America has become a global bully, despised and hated by virtually every nation on earth, except isra hell, which pretends to love us while we go bankrupt fighing their wars for them.

    The world is a hell hole when America pretends to be the strongest empire on earth.

    But we can’t remain imperialist if we allow the pentacunt to suck us dry.

    In the short time I’ve been here in Washington, nothing has frustrated me more than real choices like the ones the President and 86 % of the population laid out tonight.

    The choice isn’t just between big government or corporate criminals, bankster crooks and the pentacunt.

    What we need is an accountable, efficient and effective government that forces the rich to pay their fair share, jails the banksters, and greatly shrinks the pentacunt.

    We don’t have to raise taxes to avoid the bankster crooks devastating cuts to lower classes.

    Republicans have passed a plan that replaces these cuts with even more devastating cuts to lower classes.

    In order to balance the budget, the choice doesn’t have to be either higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need. Instead we should grow the economy by bringing back fair taxation, to rich taxpayers, not regressive taxes, and so the working class can afford to have a decent living wage and so they’ll be less, who truly cannot help themselves.

    And the truth is most problems can be solved by fixing the government. Many are caused by the moral breakdown from bankster crooks, war profiteers, and corporate criminals. And the answers to those challenges lie primarily in fair taxation, ending endless wars, and jailing the banksters, not cramming religion down our thoats as a distraction.

    Despite our tiny differences, I know that both Republicans and Democrats hate America.

    I pray we can come together to save the rich, because the choices before us could not be more important.

    To our off shore profits.

    If we can get our economy healthy again, our children will still have to deal with global warming.

    And since we didn’t deal with global warming, we will forever be known as the generation responsible for earth’s decline.

    At a time when one showdown after another ends in short-term deals that do little or nothing about our real problems, some are starting to believe that our government leaders just can’t or won’t make the right choices anymore.

    But our strength has never come from the billionaires or corporate criminals or war mongers. It’s always come from the working class. A people fooled by the false implanted rich jedi mind fuck that, if you have a dream and you are willing to work hard, nothing should be impossible.

    Americans have always been fooled and exploited by those who succeed. But it’s the dreams of those who are still dumb enough to be fooled by it that sets our nation apart.

    Tonight, all across this land, parents will hold their newborn children in their arms for the first time. For many of these parents, life has not gone the way they had planned, because me and my sugar daddies have stolen their futures.

    Maybe they were forced into exploitation they’ve found difficult to escape.

    Maybe they’ve been used by me and my sugar daddies along the way.

    Maybe they’re young mothers, all alone, the father of their child long gone. Imprisoned in our for profit private prisons which contracts stipulate, must be kept full, while the bankster crooks who own them, go unpunished.

    But tonight, when they look into the eyes of their child for the first time, their lives will change forever. Because in those eyes, they will see what my parents saw in me, and what your parents saw in you. They will see all the hopes and dreams they once had for themselves, fading into the horror of global climate change that me and my sugar daddies brought about.

    This dream, of a better life for their children, it’s the hope of parents everywhere.

    Billionaires and their stooge politicians here and throughout the world have long promised that more billiobaires can make those dreams come true.

    But we Americans have always known better. From our earliest days, we embraced liberty from economic terrorism instead.

    But because the rich have taken over, America has become one of the few places on earth where almost all other nations look at with shame.

    Each time our nation has faced great challenges, what has kept us together was the rich being forced to pay their fair share.

    Now, let that hope bring us together again. To solve the challenges of our time and write the next chapter in the old story of the greatest empire man had ever known.

    Thank you for listening. May God damn all of you. May God damn our President.

    And may God continue to punish the empire of America.

    The tax increases and the deficit spending you and 99 % of the population propose will hurt billionaires, corporate criminals, bankster crooks and war profiteers. It will cost them their bonuses. It will cost them their off shore tax shelters.

    It may even cost some of them their seventh house.

    And it will hurt predatory capitalists because it does nothing to gut Medicare and Social Security.

    So Mr. President, I oppose your and 99 % of the population’s plans because I want to protect the rich.

    I oppose your and 99 % of the population’s plans because I want to protect my sugar daddies.

    Lazy billionaires don’t need us to come up with a plan to fix the government.

    They want a plan to grow their already obscene wealth.

    Taxing the rich is the best way to help the middle class. Unfortunately, our economy actually shrank during the last three months of 2012.

    But if we can tax the rich just 4 percent a year, and end tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, it would create millions of middle class jobs. And it could reduce our deficits by almost $4 trillion dollars over the next decade.

    Tax increases on the rich will do this. Ending tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, will create private sector jobs.

    And greatly shrinking the huge bloated fucking pentacunt budget will lower the deficit by far more than $4 trillion.

    That’s why I hope the President and 99 % of the population will continue raising taxes on the rich, and tell us to go fuck ourselves to achieve income equality.

    One of the best ways to encourage growth is through renewable energy. Of course solar and wind energy should be all we concentrate on, like Germany is doing, with great success.

    But God also blessed billionaires and corporate criminals with filthy dirty coal, oil and fracking gas.

    Instead of wasting more taxpayer money on fossil fuel corporate criminals like exxon, let’s build more wind and solar farms on federal lands for safe and renewable energy.

    And let’s reform our energy regulations so that those responsible for polluting our land, air and water, pay for cleaning up the mess they’ve created for profit.

    If we can grow our clean renewable energy industry, it will make us energy independent, it will create middle class jobs and ending tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, will help bring manufacturing back from places like China.

    Simplifying our tax code, like a capital gains, off shoring, tax haven, estate, and stock transaction tax, will also help the middle class, because it will make it easier for small businesses to hire and grow.

    And we disagree with the President that we should lower our corporate tax rate, which is one of the lowest in the world, the lowest it’s been here in 60 years, and ending tax subsidies for off shoring jobs, so that corporate criminals will start bringing their money and their jobs back here from overseas.

    We can also help our economy grow if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to exploit and use the world’s poorest and most powerless for back breaking labor. We need a responsible, permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally, doing our dirty work while they pay far more in regressive taxes than they get back.

    But first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to go after the corporate criminals that hire them while immigration authorities look the other way, and enforce our laws, on, those corporate criminals.

    Helping all classes of people grow will also require an education system that gives people the knowledge to question authority, to think for themselves, and be much more engaged in challenging today’s politicians, media whores and other con men.

    We need to incentivize local school districts to offer more advanced critical thinking courses, and more fine arts, and other time honored ways to teach people, how to think for themselves.

    We need to give all parents, especially the parents of children with special needs, the opportunity to send their children to the public school of their choice.

    And because private tuition costs have grown so fast, we need to change the way we pay for higher public education.

    I believe in federal financial aid. I couldn’t have gone to college without it. But it’s not just about spending more money on these programs, it’s also about strengthening and modernizing public universities.

    A 21st century populace should not be forced to accept 19th century education solutions.

    Today’s students aren’t only 18 year olds. They’re returning war criminals. They’re single parents who are forced to get the re-education they need to be a mindless worker. And they’re workers who we have off shored their jobs that without ending off shore tax subsidies, are never coming back and need to be retrained.

    We need student aid that does not fund private for profit institutions.

    When I finished school, I owed over 100,000 dollars in student loans, a debt I paid off just a few months ago.

    Today, many graduates face massive student debt.

    We must end predatory loans and funding private, for profit institutions, and make a free public university education a right for everyone.

    All these measures are key to helping the economy grow.

    But we won’t be able to sustain a vibrant middle class unless we solve our debt problem.

    a debt problem, we created, by endless war, and tax cuts for the rich.

    Every dollar our government borrows is money that isn’t being invested to create jobs. And the uncertainty created by the debt is one tiny reason why many corporate criminals aren’t hiring. The major reason is tax subsidies for off shoring jobs.

    The President and 86 % of the population, loves to truefully blame the debt on President Bush.

    But President Obama created more debt in four years than his predecessor did in eight.

    Nevermind bush started with a huge surplus, and ended with the biggest deficit in history, with tax cuts for the rich and wars based on lies.

    The real cause of our debt is tax cuts for the rich and endless wars.

    That’s why we need the rich to start paying their fair share, and end, endless wars.

    The biggest obstacles to balancing the budget are tax cuts for the rich and endless wars

    One of these parasites, the pentacunt, is especially important to me.

    It provided me with the funds I needed to battle truth and ultimately sell my soul to war criminals.

    And it pays for the ads I run now.

    I would never support any changes to the pentacunt that would hurt war criminal hacks like me.

    But anyone who is in favor of leaving the pentacunt exactly the way it is right now, is in favor of bankrupting us.

    Republicans have offered a detailed and credible plan that helps save the pentacunt without hurting today’s war criminals.

    Instead of playing politics with the pentacunt, when is the President and 86 % of the population, going to offer our plan to shrink it?

    Now would be a good time for us to do it.

    Of course, we face other challenges as well. Us gun nuts were pretending to be all heart broken by the recent tragedy in Connecticut. We must effectively not deal with the rise of violence in our country.

    But unconstitutionally undermining the 1st, 4th, 5’th and 12’th Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, while distracting us with only the 2nd, is not the way to do it.

    On foreign policy, America has become a global bully, despised and hated by virtually every nation on earth, except isra hell, which pretends to love us while we go bankrupt fighing their wars for them.

    The world is a hell hole when America pretends to be the strongest empire on earth.

    But we can’t remain imperialist if we allow the pentacunt to suck us dry.

    In the short time I’ve been here in Washington, nothing has frustrated me more than real choices like the ones the President and 86 % of the population laid out tonight.

    The choice isn’t just between big government or corporate criminals, bankster crooks and the pentacunt.

    What we need is an accountable, efficient and effective government that forces the rich to pay their fair share, jails the banksters, and greatly shrinks the pentacunt.

    We don’t have to raise taxes to avoid the bankster crooks devastating cuts to lower classes.

    Republicans have passed a plan that replaces these cuts with even more devastating cuts to lower classes.

    In order to balance the budget, the choice doesn’t have to be either higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need. Instead we should grow the economy by bringing back fair taxation, to rich taxpayers, not regressive taxes, and so the working class can afford to have a decent living wage and so they’ll be less, who truly cannot help themselves.

    And the truth is most problems can be solved by fixing the government. Many are caused by the moral breakdown from bankster crooks, war profiteers, and corporate criminals. And the answers to those challenges lie primarily in fair taxation, ending endless wars, and jailing the banksters, not cramming religion down our thoats as a distraction.

    Despite our tiny differences, I know that both Republicans and Democrats hate America.

    I pray we can come together to save the rich, because the choices before us could not be more important.

    To our off shore profits.

    If we can get our economy healthy again, our children will still have to deal with global warming.

    And since we didn’t deal with global warming, we will forever be known as the generation responsible for earth’s decline.

    At a time when one showdown after another ends in short-term deals that do little or nothing about our real problems, some are starting to believe that our government leaders just can’t or won’t make the right choices anymore.

    But our strength has never come from the billionaires or corporate criminals or war mongers. It’s always come from the working class. A people fooled by the false implanted rich jedi mind fuck that, if you have a dream and you are willing to work hard, nothing should be impossible.

    Americans have always been fooled and exploited by those who succeed. But it’s the dreams of those who are still dumb enough to be fooled by it that sets our nation apart.

    Tonight, all across this land, parents will hold their newborn children in their arms for the first time. For many of these parents, life has not gone the way they had planned, because me and my sugar daddies have stolen their futures.

    Maybe they were forced into exploitation they’ve found difficult to escape.

    Maybe they’ve been used by me and my sugar daddies along the way.

    Maybe they’re young mothers, all alone, the father of their child long gone. Imprisoned in our for profit private prisons which contracts stipulate, must be kept full, while the bankster crooks who own them, go unpunished.

    But tonight, when they look into the eyes of their child for the first time, their lives will change forever. Because in those eyes, they will see what my parents saw in me, and what your parents saw in you. They will see all the hopes and dreams they once had for themselves, fading into the horror of global climate change that me and my sugar daddies brought about.

    This dream, of a better life for their children, it’s the hope of parents everywhere.

    Billionaires and their stooge politicians here and throughout the world have long promised that more billiobaires can make those dreams come true.

    But we Americans have always known better. From our earliest days, we embraced liberty from economic terrorism instead.

    But because the rich have taken over, America has become one of the few places on earth where almost all other nations look at with shame.

    Each time our nation has faced great challenges, what has kept us together was the rich being forced to pay their fair share.

    Now, let that hope bring us together again. To solve the challenges of our time and write the next chapter in the old story of the greatest empire man had ever known.

    Thank you for listening. May God damn all of you. May God damn our President.

    And may God continue to punish the empire of America.

      Actually, I’d say your version makes more sense than his did.

    Thanks, that was my intention.

    I brought the mic over to here where I’m reading this, and spoke it, then aired it, right after the Stephen Colbert clip.

    I inserted his “Good evening. I’m Marco Rubio.” at the start, and his “Thank you for listening. May God bless all of you. May God bless our President.

    And may God continue to bless the United States of America..” intermixed with me.

    then wrapped it up by saying –

    Truth in advertising. What the fucking slimey weasel is saying, is actually the exact opposite of what he means.

    I’ve supplied what he really means.

    News is what people want to keep hidden. Everything else is publicity.

    A famous quote, Bill Moyers uses it. In fact I added Bill saying it too, right after.

    Sorry about the double post. When I use Tor, and type a long reply, the IP will have changed by then (Tor changes it every 10 minutes) and the post is lost.

    So I pre-type it in notepad, then paste it in the comment box, but the box doesn’t lend it’self very well to pasting stuff in (problably as an anti-spam measure)
    The box doesn’t expand, stays real small and makes it hard to tell whether it’s all there and doesn’t have line breaks mid-sentence and so on.

    I wasn’t being very careful and didn’t notice that. There being no preview, it was committed by the time I saw it..

    A few more points.

    I’ve been reading your blog for quite awhile, but show up from all over the world due to Tor.

    Ever notice that during the occupy tactic rallies, these debt ceiling BS dog and pony games completely disappeared?

    The national occupy crackdown was coordinated by obomba and the banks along with fatherland insecurity, released FOIA documents reveal.

    despite their strong denials at the time. Their only response was to try to reign in the protestors to the establishment dems, and destroy with military tactics any who didn’t follow.

    – and now the bastards including the corporate media, have gone right back to their attack on the working class, without skipping a beat.

    They did pass a bunch of new laws criminalizing public protests while they were at it.

    And now the NDAA..

    And notice how this guy’s speech and all republican talking points only mention the middle class – no mention at all of the working poor, the unemployed, the homeless.

    As if they don’t exist.

    We have a record number of homeless in this country ~ 50 million, and yet no one ever talks about them.

    This whole situation reminds me of the movie “They Live”. In fact our country is becoming more and more like it every day.

    I have a clip that uses parts of the movie, the pirate station trying to warn people, the TV pep talk in the store (which I intermixed with clint eastwood’s pep talk at the stupid bowl)

    The scene where they come in with riot police and bulldozers to clear the homeless camp, bears a striking resemblance to the coordinated occupy tactic sweeps.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They_Live

    They Live is a 1988 American science fiction-horror film written, co-scored and directed by John Carpenter. The film follows a nameless drifter..

    They Live – Obey, Consume, This is your God

    John Carpenter: They Live

    They influence our decisions without us knowing it. They numb our senses without us feeling it. They control our lives without us realizing it.

    Description: An economic crisis brings unemployed Nada (Roddy Piper) to L.A. in search of work. What he finds instead is that the ruling elite of the world are aliens in disguise, their aim being to keep humans in a state of mindless consumerism. His discovery comes when he dons a pair of special sunglasses made by a resistance group and sees for the first time reality unadorned.

    Billboards, store signs, magazine covers–all bear subliminal messages to OBEY, to CONSUME, to have NO INDEPENDENT THOUGHT.

    Money itself says THIS IS YOUR GOD.

    But worst of all, with these glasses you see which of us are really hideous, bug-eyed aliens. The conceptual breakthrough is hilarious while keeping its roots in darker matters. Although some fault the film for settling into its action plot, the ending has a great payoff. And the direction by John Carpenter is handled with superb workmanlike aplomb.

    One of the most subversive films ever made in Hollywood.
