Obama warns Republicans if debt ceiling isn’t raised, then American troops and Social Security checks won’t be paid. We have a better idea President Cheezdick. How about you, Congress and all the useless civilian federal employees go without a pay check?

Or how about you pay the military who EARNED it, and pay Social Security (there’s that word, security, which we don’t much have now) to the people who paid into it for a working lifetime, and cut housing, food stamps and especially cash welfare?

How about closing down the effing Department of Energy (which produces no actual effing energy) and diverting that money for the troops and Social Security? In other words, killing a useless expenditure we DON’T need and re-using that money for something we DO? Or is that too damn complicated for PhDs to understand????

The list of what should be cut is endless. OTOH, at least he isn’t threatening to cut off generational welfare recipients. That WOULD be draconian.

Gee, I wonder if this would fix that problem, CUT OUT FOREIGN AID!

On February 13, 2012, the Obama Administration submitted its FY2013 budget proposal. The FY2013 request totals $54.87 billion for the State-Foreign Operations appropriations, including a core budget proposal of $46.63 billion plus $8.24 billion for extraordinary and temporary war related Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) in frontline states.

Then we could end welfare:

There, SS and the military are paid for!

I get so tired of this man and his lies. I explained to everybody who would listen LAST TIME he used that threat: it’s an empty threat. Everybody knows the SS trust fund is a bookkeeping sham, but the one time that sham works is when it comes to sending our checks. The gov’t sends out a check, has to increase the debt to do so, and DECREASES the IOU’s in the trust fund by the exact same amount. So the upshot is that total national debt does not increase one penny when the gov’t sends out SS checks. Number one, I do not believe he has the authority to not send out SS checks, and number two he would be doing it purely out of spite, not because of the debt ceiling.

He’ll probable issue an executive order that gives him the power to stop my social security check.

I am willing to wager a doughnut that if the govt does shutdown, the divisive, narcissistic brat will insure both he and his trusty minions receive their paychecks. In fact, I also have a gut feeling that congress will receive theirs even though the senate hasn’t really earned its pay in over a year unless one considers naming post offices worthy.

I say the first cuts should be the sla. . . uh servants and workers in the white house. Make the Obama’s clean their own shit, cook their own food, wah up their own dishes. I figure the 2nd floor would look like hoarder central in a month.

Well thank God he is not going to cut funds to the U.N. If the DSleaze didnt pour billions of our dollars into the UN if would collapse. How on earth could the U.S. survive without an effective, supportive, ethical and efficient world organization like the UN?
Other good news is that there are no threats to cut off funding to the Muslim Brotherhood in the various Shitholeistans. How would these people survive without our money and weapons. They would have a hard time killing us without our support.
I’m glad to see the President has his priorities in the right order.

Its time to call his bluff. We are up against the debit ceiling because of all of the ridiculous spending on everything for all of the free loaders and takers.

Quit paying for things like the Dept of Education, the EPA, the Energy Dept, & all of these other agencies that have nothing but laywers looking for sh!t to do. What they end up doing is sh!tting on YOU. We spend money we don’t have, & we have professional politicians(often called technocrats)who have no idea that we have a spending problem. They were bad before, & then America elects an economic retard in Obama who is worse then all 43 Presidents who came before him. He also does’nt believe we have a spending problem. It’s amazing, it’s sad, & it’s being done on purpose.

I recently watched a sow analyzing Obama’s first term. Even though it was produced by Lefties, and clearly designed to cover his butt for all the stupid things he has done and the important things he has NOT done, it showcasedover and over how unready for the Presidency he was. He continually made moves that were not well thought out, ignored his advisors, or in the case of a split in opinion invariably went for the loser side. He clearly had NO IDEA what he had signed on for, or what he should be doing. And this from the POSITIVE side’s analysis!
