Okay, so let me get this straight. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has suggested he is considering pushing a roll back of the filibuster rule which requires 60 votes during the same period President Obama announced he may seek action to grant himself the power to raise the debt ceiling at will. Really? This same President whose party controls the Senate that has yet to produce a required budget? This same President who requested the debt ceiling to be raised by $2.4 trillion only a year and a half ago and here we are facing the same crisis once again?
I remember in 2006 then Senator Barack Obama touted this about George Bush’s request for the raising of the debt ceiling: “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can’t pay its own bills.”
Wonder if he considers himself “failed leadership” now? You know, after spending more in his first term than any POTUS in history? (Perhaps this is yet another way he likes to put himself in historical records.) Another fun fact is the Democrats voted down raising the debt ceiling under Bush. I guess now that “their guy” is in office and the debt is a staggering $16+ trillion it’s different now? My question is where did the $2.4 trillion go? What was it spent on?
So what happens if we go off the financial cliff? I know one thing, a lot of people on entitlement programs won’t be happy and neither will the defense department. However, at what point do we look at the addict and take away the checkbook?
So where is Sandra Fluke when you need her? How about Scarlett Johansson and Ashley Judd? We heard plenty from these Helen Reddy “I Am Woman” wannabe’s during the campaign touting how the GOP was raging that “war on women”. Where are they now that we are hearing of countless gang rapes against Syrian women? Where is the outrage from MSNBC or the White House? How about Debbie Wasserman Shultz? Any Hollywood elitist or liberal/progressive female politician ready to step up for the cause?
Syrian leader Bashar-al Assad has already massacred over 30,000+ innocent Syrians– and now with the help of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad (aka “IM.A.NUT.JOB”), there are chemical weapons ready for the word and countless more innocent people will be wiped off the map. Sarin gas, a weapon of mass destruction, is now in the hands of a psychopath that we did nothing about for months and we have to wonder what our “Lead from Behind” President will do next. If history is any indication, he will do absolutely nothing, like what he did for the Americans in Benghazi. Will he prep Susan Rice to come out after the gas is released and blame it on another YouTube video? Or maybe this time they can blame it on a bad version of “Gangnam Style”?
What the hell are we doing listening to anything the United Nations has to say? Why in the world should we provide disability around the world? Why do we need more abortion rights? What about the rights of the child in the womb? Oh right I forgot, Obama voted for a bill that supported infanticide so he’s cool with it! And why is our President and Democrats in Congress so willing to give the power to the members of the UN? Are we looking at the One World Government plan beginning to take place? Yeah, go ahead and say the word “conspiracy”—but wait another six months and come back and talk to me!
Why hasn’t anyone committed Harry Reid yet? He has obviously been off his meds for a long time now and is really becoming an embarrassment. I don’t think he ever recuperated from the funding that was cut for the cowboy poetry. I’ll bet he was working on a new poem for them to recite and I think it goes like this:
Sitting on my horse, Saddle getting kinda sore
Contemplating how I can screw the Taxpayers, Maybe just a little bit more
Feeling good about the election, Obama is back in the game
Always felt good about that guy, Taxpayers get more of the same
Budget? Who cares? It’s not on my list.
Boehner still gets on my nerves though. Wish he would get lay off that orange mist!
Dang, my butt is really hurting, Guess I need to ride on home
Gotta be back at the Capital. Socialism is the plan in the big white Dome!
For my final rant, I’m completely fed up with Bob Costas and the liberal left politicizing the tragic events behind the murder/suicide by Kansas City Chiefs Jovan Belcher. Look, let’s get one thing straight right here: If a man or woman want to end your life and then theirs, if they don’t have a gun in their hand they will find something else to use to follow through with their agenda. As a domestic violence instructor for the offenders, trust me–a handgun was not on the list of weapons used when they attacked their spouse/significant other. The majority of the time the violence was in response to alcohol or substance abuse added with the unfinished business of a previous problem. Sometimes it was jealousy or lack of trust issues, and often times they used whatever means they were brought up with as a way to solve an argument. I’m not excusing the behavior, nor am I saying the behavior is acceptable, but to go on a rant about gun control is just asinine.
By taking the rights away to protect you, law-abiding citizens will be the one who will ultimately end up on the losing end of that coin toss and the criminal element will always find a way to get a gun. Heck, all they have to do is ask our Department of Justice; Eric Holder doesn’t seem to have a problem arming criminals with assault weapons (but that’s another rant…).
Should each state have a law that states a background check needs to be done before a gun is purchased? Yes. If a person has a history of mental health issues and is acting suspiciously, then don’t sit on the sidelines and say nothing–tell somebody about it! Reports coming out suggest that Belcher had been acting out of sorts and confused a week prior to the shooting; several people noticed it and yet no one did anything about it. That is where the problem lays, not with the weapon used in the tragic attack. Our radical liberal government is simply once again using a tragedy to push an agenda such as the arms treaty with the United Nations. Treaty or not, terrorists and criminals will always have what they need to carry out their agenda.
Bottom line, law-abiding taxpayers have the right to bear arms. That’s in the constitution but as we are quickly learning, the radical left wing of the Democrat Party believes the constitution is nothing more than a piece of history encased in glass.
More rants to come…
