By now you would think we would be finished with the deficit reduction bullshit? The GOP will do ANYTHING to NOT create jobs! The Democratic party does not have historical issues with balancing the budget, the Republican party does.

So I say, Where are the FUCKIN jobs Speaker Cantor?

HUFFINGTON POST:

WASHINGTON -- The latest Republican push for a balanced budget amendment that would force massive spending cuts to the country's social safety net died in the House of Representatives Friday, brought down by lawmakers who argued Congress can balance the budget on its own.

Requiring a two-thirds majority to pass under the Constitution, the measure failed 261-165, with several Republicans voting with the majority of Democrats against the amendment.

Analysts had warned that instituting the proposed balanced-budget requirements would likely force cuts of greater that 17 percent within seven years of the amendment's ratification. Such cuts could mean slashing Social Security by $1.2 trillion and Medicare by $750 billion by 2022, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Side note: I say Speaker Cantor, being the Boehner is clearly not in charge of the bouncy house.

That's one way of getting the republican's to vote for it.

Pizza is a vegetable, that's the most ridiculous fucking thing that I have ever heard. We as a party should not let this go. It's fucking absurd!

Booing a gay soldier while he is serving our nation overseas in a time of war.

Cheering a Governor for having the highest record of executions.

Demanding our first non-white president produce his birth certificate.

Applauding a man for being accused of sexual assault.

Screaming aloud in a Presidential auditorium to let a man die if he has no healthcare.

Protesting the firing of a man who systematically covered up child rape.

This is the party that claims Jesus for their own?
I say it's the "conservative" movement. Fox News is the "conservative" movement and Fox News is literally the Anti Christ.

Literally, he does nor do his colleagues listen to their constituents. That worked out well for Kasich didn't it? This guy is an ass.

Please do not give one breath of air time to the Herman Cain story this evening. The entire universe knows his campaign just melted down like a nuclear reactor. Plus its ELECTION NIGHT and we junkies would much rather watch the good stuff.

Sincerely

Sick in Sacramento of Cain-wreck

Although I am not sure how the congressional district is drawn and McKeon 's been in Congress for forever. He also has a huge Mormon following. Of all the congressional districts to have voted against legislation that protected people and the environment. Hinkley, California.

Hugely corrupt member of congress, see PAC contributions.

I hade four accounts including a checking, savings, retirement and a way 2 save account and I have closed all four of them. When I approached the teller and advised him of my transaction he brought me over to the branch manager where she proceeded to close my accounts. Never before in my life have I received such an incredible guest service experience at Wells Fargo? She was polite, courteous and asked me if there was anything else that she could do to get me to stay to which I replied, "Thank you but no, my place is with the people of Main St."

Willard Mitt Romney should volunteer at least 2 of his 14 sons to be on the front lines since he wants so badly to stay in Iraq! Which begs the question, have any of his sons joined the military?

“President Obama’s astonishing failure to secure an orderly transition in Iraq has unnecessarily put at risk the victories that were won through the blood and sacrifice of thousands of American men and women," Romney said in a statement. "The unavoidable question is whether this decision is the result of a naked political calculation or simply sheer ineptitude in negotiations with the Iraqi government." - Willard Mitt Romney 10/21/11

That fucker better NEVER run for office again, especially any higher office. His party rode a wave of hate into power and for his punk ass to have said NOTHING??? After all of the disgusting remarks about immigration, anchor babies, illegals, etc that his party threw around like some pets play toy, VALIDATES the man is unfit to lead in any legislative or governing capacity, EVER!

That stands right next to that fucking jerk Larry Craig. Hating gay people, all the while he is trolling for sex with men in some airport restroom.

We can not let up on this folks, we let up on that "family values" ass David Vitter and now the whore is permanent fixture in the Senate. No way!

Edited: To add bad words!

I walked in to my local grocery store (very, very large US chain) grabbed 6 items and headed for the check out counter. I did not have to walk far as there were AT LEAST 30 people in line that stretched half way through the store into the bakery section. I was immediately outraged having just left my house from watching Michael Moore's interview on Lawrence O'Donnell's show.

People were clearly unhappy and halfway up to the front I realized there was one person checking out. So I whipped out my phone and decided to look up the 2010 revenue from the company in addition to the CEO's salary.

You can guess what I found. The company made over 35 Billion last year and the CEO's total salary including benefits, stock options, etc was 24 MILLION Dollars.

So I announced in my loud speaker voice to the 30 People waiting in line, Hey guess how much this company made last year? Guess how much the CEO made? Telling the string of people the jaw dropping amount of profits made by this organization.

I asked finally "How many people here think this company can afford to help this nice lady out up at the register by hiring another person to check out?"

The line drew big time applause. I encouraged everyone to attend Occupy Sacramento TOMORROW. As I was leaving someone in the line yelled back at me as I was walking out "We are the 99%"






I could have cried hearing that, I never said anything about the 99%.

Occupy.

A few observances.

Tell me what the MSM would have done to President Obama for appointing a Muslim to the Supreme Court? Chris Christie did it and the Tea Party and the entire Republican party was absolutely silent about it. Why did the MSM not call out the GOP for it glaring hypocrisy on this issue. Ground zero mosque was all but hung around President Obama's neck by Palin, Bachman, Romney and especially Newt. Yet not one debate has asked why Governor Christie received no criticism for appointing a muslim justice in New Jersey?

Why have these debates and the MSM in general given a free pass to the fake GOP presidential candidates? Half of these jerks are not even running campaigns. No ground staff, no organizations, pollsters, etc. They are clearly there to fill up debate seats.

Please add to the list, I am going to email it to all of our favorite commentators today.

The MSM is a buzz this morning. Morning Joe is saying that he is going to announce within the next 24 hours. With more than a year to go it gives us plenty of time to see what's hiding in Chris's closet.

If you love your Social Security Income, thank a Democrat. If you want to keep your Social Security Income, vote for a Democrat.
