It would seem that President Obama is getting ready to sign an Executive Order to raise the debt ceiling. Once again proving that the Congress is to all intents and purposes, useless and merely political window dressing. Hello Roman Senate, goodbye American Congress…
August 2nd is the deadline to raise the debt ceiling or default. But the actual do or die date is July 22nd, because after that there would not be time to implement the debt ceiling raise. Red tape gets us all in the end it would seem.
Right now, there is no agreement. But on Fox News this morning, I caught a clip of Mitch McConnell saying that the Republicans would be open to a minor raise in the debt ceiling, so things could be worked out. That’s like saying, let’s plug the hole in the Titanic with chewing gum so we have a few more seconds before we die a horrible, debt-logged death. The guy’s delusional.
There seems to be some deal in the works where the government wants to reduce the debt by 4 Trillion over the next 10 years. And by government, I mean the Republicans. You guys wouldn’t all be on drugs, would you? Our current debt is just shy of 15 Trillion dollars and unless you are on crack, you know it will go up unless we drastically cut our spending and create jobs. 4 Trillion doesn’t even begin to cut it.
And while the Republicans may be living in La La Land, the Democrats don’t want to cut at all. Hell, just raise the debt ceiling and keep printing money. What could go wrong? Two words for you dolts – Weimar Republic.
I don’t think this is naivete, cluelessness or ignorance on the part of our politicians. It can’t possibly be. They know exactly where this leads. It ends in bankruptcy, death, blood and revolution. You would only push this monstrous ponzi scheme if you had you and yours taken care of and had struck a deal with the proverbial devil du jour.
And while DC politicians on both sides of the aisle strike deals and have drinks, Americans will be left holding the bag and paying a very high price tag indeed. Most of us have been paying for some time now.
Like I said the Dems don’t want to cut spending at all, they want to increase it. The Republicans say they won’t allow taxes to be raised while conceding they’ll cut out loopholes that will do just that. Forked tongue much? Here’s a thought Lindsey Graham… When you say ‘flatten’ the tax code, I agree, just not the way you mean. Go to a flat income or sales tax and abolish the IRS. Stop finding ways you can screw us more and maybe you’ll get one last chance to dance with the voters.
So, in the end, what will happen? It’s already being whispered and you can bet Obama loves the option – sign an Executive Order and raise the debt ceiling. Chuck-you Schumer is right there helping him. Schumer is a detestable dissembling troll. It’s a win-win from Obama’s evil point of view and an absolute violation of the Constitution. He gets to claim he’s a hero for saving America from financial default and blame the Republicans for forcing his hand. He also gets to point out how old and irrelevant the Constitution is and how it should be rewritten. Before you defend the Republicans though, remember they just wanted to kick this particular can down the road for political reasons to help defeat Obama in the next election. Just a slower form of the same deadly poison.
Here’s an idea… Don’t raise the damn debt ceiling. I know there are many who disagree, but I think you are just putting off the inevitable. It’s like giving an addict just a little more heroin. Cut and cap period. Then boot all the politicians out of office. Works for me. I’m beyond tired of Progressives on both sides of the aisle violating the Constitution and driving us over a financial cliff. Obama is unarguably worse because he is shoving us into a full-fledge dictatorship complete with media propaganda and wicked plans for a final American waltz before a restructuring on a worldwide scale.
Reminds me of one of my favorite songs:
Never made it as a wise man
I couldn’t cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I’m sick of sight without a sense of feeling
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
It’s not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I’m mistaken
for handing you a heart worth breaking
and I’ve been wrong, I’ve been down,
been to the bottom of every bottle
these five words in my head
scream “are we having fun yet?“

Good article, but after reading the first sentence, I was sure the author had to have been Michael G. Scott. “For all intensive purposes”, really? The correct phrase is “to all intents and purposes.” Bad spelling, I can tolerate, but malapropisms such as this just drive me crazy. Sorry for the rant.
If he goes this route, the debt will entirely on him. He never takes those kinds of political risks.
Jose, understand this about the executive fiat he will most likely sign shortly. In the making of the Congress completely irrelevent he, Mr Obama, will gain the precident to enact via executive fiat any and all things he wants to get done.
This will bypass any checks and balances, and in one fell swoop we will have a tyranny and a new dictator in one fell swoop with the people none the wiser until it is far too late to recover.
The system will have been ‘fundamentally transformed’ and the job Obama has desired with his radical socialist progressive cronies will be finished.
Only with the providence of God can this be stopped and totally turned about to restore and save the nation.
The time is now for the nation to decide – will we have the will and guts to do what is right, and what is needed, or will we just let her pass into the night of slavery and servitude to a handful of leaders and dictators.
Choose now, for the time is at hand, and my choice is already long been made.
