Waiting

Waiting

http://arcticpatriot.blogspot.com/2011/08/waiting.html

Looky here.

Looks like we won’t lose our Aaa status.

We’ve “virtually eliminated” the risk of default.

Hmm.  Think.  Would we have defaulted, really?  The nation that prints money to bailout GM, banks, and to fund ridiculous projects as “stimulus”?

No.  Even if we couldn’t meet our sovereign debt obligations (and we could have, with no ceiling increase), this government would’ve just printed the money to do so.

Now, we’re stuck with more of the same can-kicking, and a “deal” that virtually guarantees more can-kicking before the end of the year.  Awesome.

So, the age-old questions.

What?  How?  When?

What do we do about the oathbreaking, traitorous bastards driving our nation to ruin, bankrupting our children, enslaving our posterity?

What do we do?

We wait.

…*crickets*…

I know, I know, you’re tired of waiting.  All the prepping, the learning, the training, you’re eager and willing to set this straight. 

The current situation reminds me of being a young enlisted soldier, out on one of my my first (training) observation posts.  After all the prep and training, we were inserted via Blackhawk, did a night infiltration, and set up in a good hide position.  All I did was follow my squad leader, and it was just training, but I was pumped.  We got set up, and I asked my sergeant what to do next.
He just looked at me and said, “Now we wait”.
Do you know how hard it is for an eighteen year old private with a load of blank ammo to hold his fire with the enemy right in his face? 
Sitting right smack dab in the middle by an OPFOR Mech Infantry batallion, armed with only a radio and M16′s, there wasn’t much else we could have done.  Many times, if a scout uses his personal weapon, he’s already failed.  He’s dead.
We waited. 
We sent intel. 
We improved our position, when we could. 
When the fight started, we used the radio (a scout’s most powerful weapon) to rain hell (simulated arty) down all around us.  We had used the excruciatingly boring day and a half of “waiting”…doing “nothing”… with the enemy close enough to hit with a rock, to identify the enemy BN command and staff, as well as several other key positions that were made untenable with well-directed simulated artillery.  We sat there in the sun, plotting, ranging, estimating, setting up TRPs…
We were “waiting”, but we were busy.
That “waiting” paid off.
Another time (again, training here), on a screenline, we “waited”, and let OPFOR’s advance guard pass us.  We let the main body pass as well.  We “waited”, while an Armored Cavalry task force charged ahead, overextended, and found itself trapped in a mess of obstacles, washed-out ditches, and -oh yeah- scouts armed with TOW missiles.  One ten-vehicle scout platoon decimated many times more than its number in Bradleys.  Our dug-in M-1s took care of the rest.  The exercise was reset to allow the other side to get some training value out of it.  To win completely, we had to allow the enemy to commit, to over-extend.  We had to allow a lethal foe to close within striking distance.
Maybe there are some correlations or lessons to be learned there.  Maybe not.  Maybe I’m just spouting off about old Army wargames.
So, what do we do?  I can’t answer that for anyone but myself and my family.  We wait.  We prepare for the worst.  We make our lives ones worth dying for.  We build strong minds, strong bodies, strong tribes. 

We Resist where we can, we hide or pull back where we must.  Some of us will have to stand and receive punishment for saying, “no more”.   That’s hard.  Some of us will have to suffer disgrace and humiliation where our pride says “fight!”  Sometimes that’s just as hard.

You, me, others, the “little people”, we’re powerless right now.  We’re spectators to our own downfall as a nation.  It’s always that way.  The little people are nothing, impotent, meaningless.
Until they’re not anymore. 

That moment often comes without warning.  When it comes, nothing can stop it, even if looking back it seems entirely avoidable. 

Remember WW1?  When one spark was lit, it set off an unstoppable chain of events that no one could control.

Our time will come.  One way or the other.
I don’t know the when or the how.  I know part of the “why”. 
Use the time we have now.  Use it to prepare for whatever you see ahead in our future.  Use it or squander it as you will.

We’re the little people.  We’re the “consumers”, the cannon fodder, the “suspects”, the “voters”, whatever serves the purposes of the moment for those who would be our masters.

We’ll always be impotent.

Until we’re not.

Resist.

‘Aftershock’ Book Predicts Economic Disaster Amid Controversy

Robert Wiedemer’s new book, “Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown,” quickly is becoming the survival guide for the 21st century. And Newsmax’s eye-opening Aftershock Survival Summit video, with exclusive interviews and prophetic predictions, already has affected millions around the world — but not without ruffling a few feathers.

Initially screened for a private audience, this gripping video exposed harsh economic truths and garnered an overwhelming amount of feedback.

“People were sitting up and taking notice, and they begged us to make the video public so they could easily share it,” said Newsmax Financial Publisher Aaron DeHoog.

But that wasn’t as simple as it seems. Various online networks repeatedly shut down the controversial video. “People were sending their friends and family to dead links, so we had to create a dedicated home for it,” DeHoog said.

(Editor’s Note: Watch Bob Wiedemer’s Aftershock Survival Summit video)

This wasn’t the first time Wiedemer’s predictions hit a nerve. In 2006, he was one of three economists who co-authored a book correctly warning that the real estate boom and Wall Street bull run were about to end. A prediction Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and his predecessor, Alan Greenspan, were not about to support publicly.

Realizing that the worst was yet to come, Wiedemer and company quickly penned “Aftershock.” However, just before it was publicly released, the publisher yanked the final chapter, deeming it too controversial for newsstand and online outlets such as Amazon.com.

“We got lucky,” DeHoog said. “I happened to read the original version, which contained this ‘unpublished chapter,’ which I think is the most crucial in the entire book. Wiedemer gave Newsmax permission to share this chapter with our readers.”

With daily economic forecasts projecting doom and gloom and no recovery in sight, people need to learn how to survive economic disaster. During the past quarter alone, unemployment skyrocketed to 9 percent. Inflation continues to soar and the U.S. national debt crisis is still on the fence between raising the debt ceiling or massive budget cuts, with no resolution in sight.

During Newsmax’s Aftershock Survival Summit video, Wiedemer discusses the dire consequences of Washington, D.C.’s, bipartisan, multi-decade “borrow-and-spend” agenda. He also explores the inflation nightmare, the impending plunge in home prices, the looming collapse of the stock and bond markets, a possible historic surge in unemployment, and how to survive what life in America will be like in the days of the “Aftershock.”

Despite appearances, Aftershock is not a book with the singular intention of scaring the heck out of people. Although it does provide a harsh outlook for the economic future of America, the true value lies in the wealth of investment tips, analyses, predictions, budget advice, and sound economic guidance that people can act on immediately, offering a ray of recovery hope and an indispensable blueprint for life after shock.

Viewers of Newsmax’s Aftershock Survival Summit video heard detailed advice for handling credit card debt, home and car loans, life insurance, unemployment issues, how to beat inflation, making personal budget cuts and many more recovery tools to survive the economic aftershock. They also took advantage of a special Newsmax offer for a free copy of the new edition of “Aftershock,” which includes the final “unpublished chapter.”

For a limited time, Newsmax is showing the Aftershock Survival Summit and supplying viewers with free copies of the “Aftershock” book (while supplies last).

Potential Sympathizers and A Nation of Cowards Finally Has Its Conversation About Race by Hunter Wallace

Potential Sympathizers

District of Corruption

The Washington establishment has a multitude of enemies. We are not the only ones who can see the damage its fantasy ideology is doing to the project of civilization in North America.

There are any number of self interested players out there who stand to benefit from the destruction of liberalism. Most of these players have only been giving lip service to BRA’s moral voice as interpreted by the New York Times, Washington Post and Hollywood.

None of them really believe it.

(1) CIA/FBI – During the Civil Rights Movement, J. Edgar Hoover believed that Martin Luther King, Jr. was the biggest fraud who ever lived.

Undoubtedly, there are smart people who work for the CIA and FBI who despise Obama and who can see through BRA’s lies and who are aware of the chaos that the breakdown of this unsustainable system will unleash on the world in the long run.

I’m quite sure that everyone isn’t on board with that subject. There are plenty of people who work for the CIA and FBI who are just going along with the flow to advance their own careers.

(2) The Police – The police are the front line soldiers of the system who know from first hand experience what it is like to live under the biggest lie that has ever been told in the history of the world.

The police have to pretend that violent crime isn’t almost synonymous with African-Americans and Hispanics in our major cities. Believe me, there are cops out there who think exactly as we do about race and culture.

When African-Americans burned down Los Angeles, the cops were vilified by the liberal establishment. Just imagine what it is like to be a cop … to spend hours driving around through the black holes and brown holes wondering to yourself why politicians lack the guts to address such an obvious problem.

If you are a cop, you are underpaid to risk your life to contain the threat to civilization posed almost exclusively by black people. There are plenty of cops who understand why the Alabama state troopers dispersed the civil rights agitators on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma.

(3) The Pentagon/The Military – How many people in the Pentagon do you suppose wanted the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy? Especially after Bradley Manning – a single eunuch who was depressed over his boyfriend – dropped a nuclear bomb on American diplomacy?

Is everyone happy about Obama fagging the military to get the gay money for 2012? I don’t think so.

The Pentagon spends oodles of money to shoot a missile up Saddam Hussein’s ass. Surely, the Pentagon must realize that it would be a much better investment of American taxpayer dollars to support “defensive ideas” that will can be used to defend America from Hollywood, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

How much more effective would it be to drop rhetorical ordinance on a handful of the most notorious traitors in the country?

(4) The Catholic Church – The Catholic Church has never believed in liberalism. It has never seen liberalism as anything but a fantasy ideology that rots the mind and the soul.

While there are plenty of Catholics who subscribe to BRA’s moral voice, I would bet a million dollars that there are many others who privately subscribe to our view of the world, and who would like nothing better than to see the downfall of liberalism.

(4) Rogue Filmmakers – Mel Gibson clearly has an axe to grind against Hollywood and the liberal establishment. This man has made far too many of our favorite movies to not sympathize with our ideas.

(5) The South – The South has gone along with BRA’s moral voice since Martin Luther King made his “How Long, Not Long” speech in the Alabama state capitol in 1965.

I know White Southerners far too well to believe that no one in major positions of power in our state governments sees the world like we do. I’m sure there are plenty of Southerners who have been going along to get ahead.

How many enemies do you suppose Morris Dees has made over the years? How many state legislators do you suppose would speak out if the SPLC only lost its credibility?

(6) The Hobbits - The Hobbits are pissed off for understandable reasons. White people have been vilified, persecuted, and financially destroyed by the liberal establishment for decades now. They have been forced to live a lie – and now the thirst for revenge is overwhelming them.

The Washington establishment gets golden parachutes and taxpayer funded bailouts. No one has ever bailed out the Hobbits of America. It is the Hobbits who have to abandon their schools, their neighborhoods, their hometowns because Washington and its insane policies have destroyed countless cities and counties across America.

The little people in the small towns are sold into debt peonage to China for the Mile High Club can get its next bump by raising the debt ceiling. The Mile High Club screams in outrage that it has been “hijacked” by “terrorists” when it is forced to spend an hour waiting on the tarmac to address the nation’s vital business.

Then it takes off and denounces the American nation as “terrorists.”

(7) Ruined Workers – The victims of globalization in Middle America are too numerous to count. I don’t have to travel to the Midwest to imagine what has been done to industrial towns in Michigan and Ohio.

(8) Small Business Owners – For small business owners, putting up with BRA is a cost of doing business that has driven many a good entrepreneuer out of business.

Think about it: the average White household was worth $130,000. The average African-American household is worth 20X less. When African-Americans move into a city like Montgomery, hijack the public schools and other public services, and force White people to flee to Prattville and Millbrook, who do you suppose is ruined by that?

How many ruined businesses are there in cities and towns that have been destroyed by African-Americans? Just drive around Detroit.

(9) Honest Academics/Honest Watchdogs - Anyone who is driven by a passion for truth and intellectual clarity about reality has a self interested reason to despise BRA.

There are countless legions of wonks out there sitting on data points that could incinerate 50 years of lies. Most of these people keep their mouth shut only because they fear the disciplinary organizations like the SPLC who practice McCarthyism as a policy.

There is nothing stopping them doing a “Wikileaks” on the liberal establishment at any moment.

(10) Teachers – Like the cops, the teachers have to live under the lie of racial equality, and their performance is literally evaluated on the basis of their ability to perform alchemy: under No Child Left Behind, teachers are required to turn lead into gold.

(11) Investors - When BRA finally goes bankrupt under the suicidal guidance of the liberal establishment in Washington, how much money do you suppose the investor class of America will lose in the process?

(12) Conservatives – No one has more to gain from destroying the liberal establishment than conservatives.

How many times have conservatives been labeled and antagonized by these people over the years? Do you think Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck will shed a tear over the death of the liberal establishment?

Instead of making futile appeals to racial altruism, I think we should make an appeal directly to the self interest of all the above groups to stand up and non-violently “witness” what BRA and the liberal establishment are all about.

Barack Hussein Obama is an emperor with no clothes. You have everything to gain and much to lose … from destroying the liberal establishment in this moment of weakness.

Do it for yourself. Do it for your race. Do it for your country. Do it for God. Do it to make money. Do it to save your own ass. Do it because you love the truth. Do it because you hate this rotten culture. Do it for revenge.

You are living in the Soviet Union with free speech, social media, and the internet. Push Gorbachev and his party to the side.

Note: Eunuchs, the Confederate Army has risen again to “non-violently” attack you in cyberspace with ICBMs launched from Dixie. Indeed, you are saying there are “barbarians” at BRA’s gate. Not really, but we should encourage you to entertain this paranoid conspiracy theory.

The only thing you have gotten right so far is that you are facing a very familiar type of foe – the spiritual heirs of Charleston – who want to move back into the big house our ancestors built. I’m going to break out the champagne and give a toast to Jeff Davis and Edmund Ruffin. Your demise is coming soon.

The only obstacle in our path is a bunch of eunuchs like Chris Hayes and Don Lemon on television – the priests of BRA’s morality – who imagine themselves as the Union Army. MSNBC doesn’t have an army though.

Non-Violent Extremism: A Nation of Cowards Finally Has Its Conversation About Race

Alabama

If there was ever any doubt that the liberal establishment is facing a full blown crisis of legitimacy, it can be found in this AP article on the new White House strategy on “violent extremism.”

The liberal establishment is trapped in the confines of its own progressive discursive paradigm. It can’t imagine a world where the priests of BRA have lost authority over the country in the same way that the Soviet Union lost control over its empire when communism was hit by a flock of black swans.

By definition, the liberal establishment is the “mainstream.” If you reject the liberal establishment, you are a “racist” or an “extremist” or a “xenophobe” who needs “multicultural education” and “diversity training.” To be an “extremist” means to be someone who dares to laugh openly at BRA’s tall tale of the world.

Is there such a thing as “non-violent extremism”? An “extremist” who practices “non-violence” as a matter of principle and who does nothing more than “witness” the “hate truth” that BRA’s media systematically censors from our “national conversation”?

It is a disturbing thought to the liberal establishment that someone like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck could use the playbook of Martin Luther King to sweep them into the dustbin of history. In twenty years, the only thing Rush has ever done to them is sit in his studio and crack jokes about the Drive-By Media.

That’s what we are going to do here. We are going to launch ICBMs from Alabama at the eunuchs in Washington and New York City with “NON-VIOLENCE” and “Return to Sender” stamped on the side of them.

I hope they will enjoy the delicious irony of being held up to their own high standards. The most intolerant people in the entire world are those who scream “tolerance.”

I’ve studied the Civil Rights Movement in great detail … in order to “reverse engineer” the 1960s. I think the time has come for White people to follow its example. The American taxpayer is being sold into slavery to the Chinese to get BRA in return.

Is that fair? I don’t think so.

We ought to practice non-violent witness on them like Martin Luther King and Bob Moses. Ever hear of Carter Strange? Ever hear of “flash mobs?” No one in Washington can even talk about what the “hobbits” have to put up with on a daily basis.

It is EC-10.

These hypocrites claim that we are “violent.” In Barack Hussein Obama’s hometown, 96.8 percent of homicide93.3 percent of rape96 percent of robbery, and 91.8 percent of aggravated assault – 94.5 percent of violent crime in Chicago - is committed by African-Americans and Hispanics.

Why are black people in Chicago shooting each other? Why is there so much violence in Rahm Emanuel’s city? Why is it safer to be a soldier in Afghanistan than to walk the streets of Obama’s hometown at night?

Sarah Palin and the NRA make them do it. BRA’s detective Garry McCarthy has connected the dots. Didn’t you hear? It’s all about “the legacy of slavery” … in Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Los Angeles.

Eric “My People” Holder said America was “a nation of cowards” for our refusal to have “a conversation about race.” Like it or not, White America is joining that conversation with our dossier, and now the Left will finally get what it has always wanted.

Barack Hussein Obama needs to go back to Chicago to “organize his community.” I think it needs his help.

The America Bubble

The America Bubble

Hurray! Our democratic leaders have rescued the nation, once again, from a crisis of their own making!

After the debt-ceiling was (inevitably) raised, and Gabby Giffords was wheeled out to take part in the exercise in bi-partisanship, the frequent refrain was sounded that “both sides” engaged in “painful comprise.” The reality is that nothing really happened and nothing really changed.

The initial increase in the debt ceiling of 900 billion (or what’s actually 2.1 trillion) is “matched” by cuts of $1 trillion… over the next 10 years. One hundred billion per annum will, of course, put but a mild dint in the projected growth of the federal government; no component will actually go away. Such “cuts” will, moreover, be quickly overwhelmed by the growth of debt, whose current clip is 4 billion per day.

Put simply, America remains strictly debt-financed—this includes its military empire, entitlement programs, and multicultural obsession. And until that happy day when this system collapses—or is destroyed by geopolitical actors—Washington will get away with it.

What still amazes me, though perhaps it shouldn’t, is the way in which the media and so many political activists—even AltRighters and White Nationalists—got caught up in the “crisis,” which was fabricated by Tim Geithner through his arbitrary and mythical “August 2nd deadline.” (As Jim Rickards points out, Geithner creates media events in a real Timmy Geithner kind of way—passive aggression and the projection of weakness.) Despite the millions of warnings of default, interest rates on Treasuries remained at historic lows. No one actually believed that a country that can emit its own currency would ever stop paying interest and its bills.

And there’s another important, and deeper, element to this that should be stressed. Despite the frequent claims by liberals that the Tea Party is a group of libertarian extremists, none of them—indeed, no one in the entire country—actually wants to reduce government.

Spending cutsOr put another way, Washington has covered its bases: The Red States get a debt-financed military, a debt-financed Military Industrial Complex, and debt-financed Medicare and Social Security. Liberals get debt-financed liberalism. Blacks get debt-financed public employment and debt-financed affirmative action. Hispanics get free entry into the country and the chance to feed off the debt-financed welfare state. Jews get debt-financed grants to Israel. Wall Street gets debt-financed bailouts. Und so weiter… Each side thinks that the other side’s programs are “wasteful” and “pork” and that its own programs are “essential.”

Though Congress might be unpopular, an Economist poll revealed last year that the vast majority of Americans don’t want to change anything about Washington. With the exception of the easy-to-hate foreign aid, ending any major entitlement is opposed by a supermajority of voters.

What this reveals, in the final analysis, is that with debt-financed “democratic capitalism,” the U.S. has achieved a more lasting and insidious form of egalitarianism than anything attempted by the Soviet Union of old.

Domestically speaking, by the middle of the 20th century, “America” signified, perhaps for the first time, a real nation. After the mass Third World immigration inaugurated by the 1965 Immigration Act, America was transformed into an economy (or a place where all people from around the globe can “achieve their dreams”). At the beginning of the 21st century, America is not even an economy but some kind of egalitarian, obviously unsustainable credit bubble that makes terms like “capitalism” and “socialism” seem irrelevant.

The Debt Ceiling Deal From Hell

The Debt Ceiling Deal From Hell

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/the-debt-ceiling-deal-from-hell

Is the debt ceiling deal supposed to be some sort of a cruel joke?  Is this what the American people have been waiting months and months for?  The “debt ceiling deal from hell” is a complete and total fraud.  Barack Obama will not need to worry about the debt ceiling again until after the 2012 election, and no “real” spending cuts will happen until after the 2012 election.  The way the political game in Washington D.C. is played today, if you don’t get something right now, you probably will never end up getting it.  The Republicans have traded a massive debt ceiling increase right now for the possibility of very skimpy budget cuts in the future.  Meanwhile, this deal establishes a new “Super Congress” that threatens to fundamentally alter our political system (and not in a good way).  The funny thing is that everyone is running around proclaiming that the Tea Party won this battle.  That is a complete and total lie.

So what about the $917 billion in “immediate” spending cuts that the Republicans are getting as part of this deal?

Well, they aren’t really spending cuts at all.  Rather, they are spending caps.  Basically what is happening is that future spending increases are being cancelled and our politicians are selling that to us as “spending cuts”.

What is even sadder is that the $917 billion is spread over ten years and the vast majority of the “cuts” are in the latter years.

For example, even if you consider these to be “spending cuts” (which they are not), the deal calls for only about $25 billion in “cuts” in 2012 and only about $47 billion in “cuts” in 2013.

25 billion dollars is far less than one percent of the federal budget, so needless to say these “cuts” are not very impressive at all.

Okay, so how about the second stage of the deal which will produce “spending cuts” of between 1.2 and 1.5 trillion dollars?

Well, yes, these would actually be spending cuts and they would be spread over 10 years.

Near the end of the year, the new “Super Congress” (more on that in a minute) will submit a proposal to Congress which could cut spending over the next 10 years by a total of up to 1.5 trillion dollars.

If the recommendations of the “Super Congress” are not implemented, then “automatic” spending cuts of $1.2 trillion will go into effect over the next 10 years.

However, there are some very important things to remember about these “spending cuts”.

First of all, none of these “automatic” spending cuts would even go into effect until 2013.  The face of American politics will be dramatically different by then, and there is absolutely nothing that makes these cuts binding on Congress.

As Gregg Easterbrook recently noted, Congress can cancel spending cuts at any time and for any reason….

By projecting the only tangible savings — which aren’t even specified, but are merely caps — into the future, the plan allows Congress to cancel them. In 2012 or any future year, Congress will say, “We can’t have caps this year because of the [INSERT ANY WORD CHOSEN AT RANDOM] crisis. We are postponing action till next year.” Rinse and repeat.

As I have written about so many times before, the U.S. national debt is completely and totally out of control.  This was supposed to be the moment when at least some members of Congress were finally going to get serious about our exploding debt.  Unfortunately, our politicians have sold us down the river once again.

Even if the best case scenario happens (which it never does) and Congress sticks to this deal for the full ten years (which is about as likely as hell freezing over), the “savings” that this deal would produce are quite pathetic as Peter Schiff recently explained….

The Congressional Budget Office currently projects that $9.5 trillion in new debt will have to be issued over the next 10 years. Even if all of the reductions proposed in the deal were to come to pass, which is highly unlikely, that would still leave $7.1 trillion in new debt accumulation by 2021. Our problems have not been solved by a long shot.

Keep in mind that Congress can change this deal whenever it wants.

So nobody should get excited about these “spending cuts”.  After all, when was the last time that “future spending cuts” actually materialized in Washington?

The reality is that neither political party seems to want to do much to cut government spending.

So the band will play on and the can will get kicked even farther down the road.

When Obama was inaugurated, the U.S. national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08.

Today, it is $14,342,358,440,969.10.

But what this “debt ceiling deal” will do is it will give the congressional leadership of both parties much more power.

The new “Super Congress” that this deal establishes will be granted “extraordinary new powers” that regular members of Congress do not possess.

For example, The Huffington Post says that any new legislation produced by the “Super Congress” will not be able to be filibustered or amended….

Under the reported framework, legislation the new congressional committee writes would be fast-tracked through Congress and could not be filibustered or amended.

So who will be a part of the “Super Congress”?

The members will be chosen by the leadership of both parties.

So anyone that is not part of the “establishment” is not likely to be included.

The following is what U.S. Representative Ron Paul had to say about this new “Super Congress”….

“Nothing more than a way to disenfranchise the majority of Congress by denying them the chance for meaningful participation in the crucial areas of entitlement and tax reform. It cedes power to draft legislation to a special commission, hand-picked by the House and Senate leadership.”

It is this new “Super Congress” that will decide what will be in the package of “spending cuts” that will be voted on by the end of the year.

Regular members of Congress will be frozen out of the process.

On December 23rd, Congress will be required to vote up or down on the spending cuts proposed by the “Super Congress”.  Regular members of Congress will not be allowed to amend the legislation in any way, and no filibusters will be permitted.

Does that sound very “American” to you?

The more that one examines this “debt ceiling deal”, the worse it looks.

Meanwhile, many Democrats are running around and acting as if their lunch money was just stolen.

For example, the following is what Politico is reporting that U.S. Representative Mike Doyle said about this deal….

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”

Democratic congressman Emanuel Cleaver was even more dramatic when he proclaimed that this deal “looks like a Satan sandwich“.

Well, this deal is a total nightmare, but not for the reasons that Cleaver is suggesting.

This deal opens the door for more rampant deficit spending, and nearly all of the “spending cuts” are put off until after the 2012 election.

Basically, the Republicans got taken out behind the woodshed and beaten to a pulp on this one.  Any Republican that is trying to proclaim that the debt ceiling deal is a “great victory” is a complete moron.

But in the end, it really does not matter which political party gets a “victory” out of all this.  What matters is that our federal government is still steamrolling toward a date with financial oblivion.

If this is the best that our politicians can come up with, we are absolutely doomed.
