The US government has shut down.
No, he’s teasing.
I’ve paid as little attention as possible to this story because:
1. It’s not true.
2. It’s political drama in an effort to get the Republican minions and Democratic cult members to fight against each other after coming together in opposition to attacking Syria. Unity cannot be allowed because it challenges the one-party system.
3. I was trying to finish up a research paper.
Today, with college finally over, I decided to take a peek into the political headlines to see what nonsense was being put out as “news.” Here’s some great stuff from an article written by Mark Felsenthal for Reuters, “Obama pulls out stops in warning on debt default.”
“A decision to actually go through with it, to actually permit default – according to many CEOs and economists – would be, and I’m quoting here, ‘Insane, catastrophic, chaos.’ These are some of the more polite words.” – Obama
Funny, those are the same words I would use to describe voting Obama in for a second term.
Except you didn’t use the more polite words.
“Warren Buffet likened default to a nuclear bomb, a weapon too horrible to use.” – Obama
It's worth noting that the nuclear bomb was used twice after the Japanese surrendered and now uranium depleted shells used in the Middle East have created a radioactive situation worse than those two atomic bombs. If this debt default is like a nuclear bomb and nuclear bombs are too horrible to use and the United States government uses them to murder innocent people, does that mean that Obama is arguing FOR debt default?
“This is not just for me. It’s also for my successors in office, whatever party they’re from. They shouldn’t have to pay a ransom either for Congress doing its basic job. We gotta put a stop to it.” – Obama.
Apparently, when making financial decisions for a country, dictators should not need permission from the people who hold the specific duty of controlling the purse strings.
That seems true enough.
Congress should just be renamed as “Rubber Stamp.”
“’This is the creditworthiness of the United States that we’re talking about,’ [Obama] said. ‘This is our word. This is our good name. This is real.’”
He makes it sound like the world will look down on the United States government if it defaults. The only people who think the United States government has a good name are ‘Merkins who live in Pretendland.
Then, apparently, The Great and Powerful Oz turned toward the usual tactic of describing end-of-the-world scenarios that will occur if people don’t do what He says. I don’t have my finger on the pulse of what constitutes popular thinking (using the term oh-so-loosely) but I have to wonder if His threats carry the power they once did. How many times can people hear these threats before the empty threats lose their oomph? How many times can Chicken Little cry wolf before doubt about His credibility occurs, even in the minds(?) of the spoon-fed zombies?
You aren’t including his Keynesian Klown cult members are you?
It doesn’t look like it or there wouldn’t have been a question mark behind the word “minds” and there wouldn’t have been the word “minds.”
Either you’re with him or you’re with the terrorists.
Same logical fallacy, though.
Apparently, the puppets are easily interchangeable.
