Quote of the Day: “Why is it that compromise always means increasing taxes today and doing cuts ten years from now?”

by editor on July 19, 2011

Damn, we love that line. And it’s about time someone – anyone – said it. In this case the quotee was Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador.

After Cokie Roberts reflexively spewed a litany of Democrat talking points, Labrador asked the simple question, “Why is it that compromise always means increasing taxes today and doing cuts ten years from now?”

“Homina, homina, homina,” Roberts said in response.

We didn’t sent the Republicans to D.C. to compromise with the Democrats. We sent them there to protect us from Democrat idiocy. If the current crop can’t do it, there’s men in town that can.

Exactly. If asses were not kicked, and names were not taken, we will open the positions up until we find someone who has a can opener for their whoopass.

Democrats compromises are our way or no way… Republicans are meant to give up everything even with a considerable increase in number in Congress. It is amazing. If Republicans give way things will go even further down to Hell.

Now I know why I no longer watch the A-B-C’s news outlets…all the ‘journalists’ are so f***ing stupid, and so f***ing partisan, that you’d have to blind, deaf, and dumb, or a libturd, not to notice!

If it makes you feel any better, I read the highlights of a media marketing study. Basically, the old line media will die off with the baby boomers. Gen X and Millenials know its BS and can’t tune it out because they never really tuned in. Its too bad the boomers will still be in power when the whole thing comes crashing down. Otherwise, i’d say we can look forward to seeing a lot of these hacks discgraced or jailed.

Maybe not. I’m a boomer and tuned out the media 15 years ago. The scumbags may have overplayed their hand with the “Obama is like a god or something” crap; everybody can now see he’s nothing of the sort and maybe wondering what those a-hole journalistos have been on for all these years. And why pay to have a piece of MSM crap dropped on your doorstep when a stray dog will put something better there for free?

I got to be real with you… I asked myself that same question, however because all liberals are the same to me, I really couldn’t care that much to figure it out.

Cokie has that “deer in headlights” look. Nice freeze frame.

The GOP has to stay strong and united on this issue. The Dems will treat a debt ceiling increase with no real spending cuts as a third round of QE. In other words a license to spend an additional $2.3 Trillion and further inflate the currency. Even Democratic Party reliable, Goldman Sachs, is coming out of its trance.

GS says what makes money for GS. Never beleive anything those schysters say. Not as a plebe, not as a client and not as a shareholder. GS likely needs more quantitative easing and a steeper yield curve.

Federal deficits do not cause the dollar to decline directly. There were deficits in the past and the dollar rose. If all spending was cut and tax revenues rocketed higher it could still fall. Deficits do not change the quantity of money in the system. The Fed (not the feds) does that.

Sure, federal deficits and targeted interest rates are the main conduit but don’t think for a second that eliminating the deficit will do a damned thing about inflation this year, or next or the next 20.

Our entire monetary system was designed by Warburg the commie loving bankster. Its designed to operate on inflation.
