  •  ENOUGH with the damn cuts (12+ / 0-)

    "Entitlements" -- I would remind the President that they're called that because people paid into those programs, and are therefore entitled to the benefits and proceeds thereof -- have been slashed to hell across the nation and in each state.  Therefore, Mr. Obama, sweetie, bubhie, boychik, stop offering cuts to the ratbastards who want more cuts.

    The only way an economy gets going is through circulating, i.e., spending, money.  The only way money gets spent is if people have it.  The only way people have it is if they get it, whether from jobs or government aid programs.

    Austerity has been proven conclusively not to work.  Pretty much everything the Repubs have attempted for the past thirty years, except for gerrymandering, has been proven conclusively not to work.  Unless your goal is to destroy the country, which I do not put past them.

    Meanwhile, for those of us who'd like a functional America, all you rich assholes in Congress please contemplate your navels for a few minutes and see if you can determine what you're really getting for all your tax evasion and uber-profit besides High Score at the bank.

    And then, either approve some new revenue through taxation of the wealthiest 2% of Americans, or just be done with it and right out loud say, "Thanks for the votes, dummies -- now screw you, we got ours, we work for the rich folks, and we hope you enjoy bread and water and living and dying on the street."

    Although I don't think that'll happen.  Because Repub politicians these days are almost as cowardly as they are mean.

    Sorry.  Sorry.  Just... gaaaaaaah.  These people piss me off.
