They LIKE the status quo!


I thought this comment from our friend HelenK deserved a front page response:

The young republicans got it. They know how to play backtrack’s game. It is driving the dems nuts. Their tactics are no longer working. If the older republicans would stop, look and listen to the young in this case they would be a lot better off

Helen is right, except for one thing. They LIKE the status quo.

Washington D.C. is literally a swamp. It’s a cesspool of corruption. It pollutes everything it touches. If you put anything clean and pure in there it soon gets covered in toxic sludge. It’s a barrel full of rotten apples.

We don’t have a two party system. What we have is a uni-party system with two wings. Career politicians DO NOT want to reform the system. Each wing would prefer to be on top, but not at the expense of the uniparty losing overall control of government.

There are a whole bunch of people in Washington who have grown fat feeding at the public teat. But they are basically just employees of the uniparty. As long as they remain loyal to the uniparty they are assured of money and privilege, even if they lose an election.

You can’t trust the Democrats. You can’t trust the Republicans either. In fact, you can’t trust anybody in Washington D.C. They may talk about reform, but they don’t mean it. What they want is a large, centralized government, an executive branch that is unhindered by the rule of law and the power to reward friends and punish enemies via taxes, regulations and government spending.

Who runs the uniparty? The answer is easy – just follow the money. Find out who benefits the most from the current system and you’ll find the people running things.

    This has a lot to do with McCain’s recent outbursts. The new guys were upsetting the apple cart.

    • HELENK says:

      very true. the young republican guys woke up a lot of voters.

      when backtrack came on the scene, he went for the young bill ayres educated first time voters. told them they were the future and they were owed by the old rich white guy for every wrong ever committed Forget about the old way of ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. your country owes you just because you were born. just shut up, sit down and we will do the thinking for you

      Rand Paul just woke up voters of all ages telling them “Hey there is a bill of rights and a constitution that says there are limits to what the government can do. You have the right to not have to worry about a government that could attack you if you do not agree with them. you own the government, the government does not own you.

      old timers in both parties we cannot these young whippersnappers make the people realize that we work for them. God forbid that the young wake up and throw us out of the best part time job ever

      thanks for getting the video

    • HELENK says:

      he never did understand the point of the filibuster. He kept going off the subject of just what the bill of rights promises Americans. Yes there are other things going on in congress. I would hope to hell they can chew gum and walk at the same time. There is never just one thing going on. he just does not get it

    • DeniseVB says:

      Shep surprised me, he actually challenged McCain. AND, it didn’t look like Daddy McBloggette appreciated that. 😀

    You got that right. That is why both sides freaked out October 2012 when it became obvious Romney was winning the election — he was going to actually get us to a balanced budget, cut programs (such as subsidies to PBS) that were not worth borrowing 40 cents on every dollar to fund, repeal Obamacare & replace it with reforms such as being able to buy insurance across state lines that would *actually* lead to lower insurance costs and reform SS & Medicare so that they could remain solvent for future generations. Hence those magical 74,000 votes in FL and 100,000 each in OH & VA even with (R) governors (note how those governors have now all decided they ARE going to take a piece of that federal pie known as Obamacare).

    It’s also why they hate Palin.

    So far, Rand seems to be making enemies of all the right people on both sides of the aisle. We’ll see if that lasts.

    Wanna be pissed off? I saw a show on Hannity about DC “Boomtown.” Did you know that the Lamborghini company opened their North America headquarters in the DC suburbs because the DC area has more Lamborghini sales than ANY PLACE ELSE in the US — more than LA, NYC, Silicon Valley, etc. And, as an added bonus, as the Lamborghini manager said with a smile — “Unlike in other areas where the sales are financed, the majority of the sales in DC are in cash.

    You realize, that’s our tax dollars buying those Lamborghinis. Useless leeches who aren’t there for public service — they are there to extract wealth from us (in the form of our taxes) to benefit themselves and their friends/families.

    • DeniseVB says:

      ange, when you have time, look up Stossels programs (fox business?), he not only played a begging homeless person on the city streets, he actually followed some of them home…’s quite a cottage industry ! But, Stossel must be destroyed!! /snork

      • angienc (D) says:

        Yeah, I’ve seen Stossel — he’s got some good stuff, but IMO he served as a de facto Obama supporter in both the 2008 & 2012 elections so he kind of pisses me off too.

    It’s not that easy for the voter because our Fourth Estate is a combination of lazy, stupid and corrupt.

    • HELENK says:

      my first answer is George Soros as he is one of the most visible. But also remember when Ike said beware of the military – industrial complex

      • DeniseVB says:

        Ah, you mentioned Soros, which reminds me of my trip to NYC last week and seeing one of those “evil Koch brothers” David’s name all over renovations, improvements, parks, zoo buildings of the city’s cultural landscape. Never saw a Soros sign.

        So, what was OWS’ problem with the Koch Brothers again? Heh.

    • wmcb says:

      It’s not too difficult to find the patterns, but then one has to also take them with a grain of salt. A common mistake is over-extrapolating from the general to the individual. Both sides do it.

      I.e., while it may be true that moneyed interests hold a lot of sway in our politics, that does not translate into “Every single pol or organization that takes a dime of their money is in on the big evil plot.” Nah.

      It simply doesn’t work that way. In the first place, a lot of it is not necessarily malice or seeking control (though some of it is.) Sometimes it’s simple self-interest, on both sides. A lot of entities ended up with way too much control, not because it was a mastermind plan, but because that’s the way the system arranged itself.

      I can look at things like the corporate/state hydra and say this is unhealthy and wrong without thinking that EVERY pol or CEO involved is actively intending for it to be evil. It still needs to be destroyed, but I try not to fall prey to the moral judgements and demonizing of every single person involved, because human self-interest, getting and protecting your piece of the pie, guarding your turf, etc. can explain much.

      That’s yet another reason that I have such respect for the brilliance of our founders. They took a long hard look at human nature, and argued over and hammered out a govt that would work despite the vagaries and selfishness of people. And frankly, most other systems I see are doomed from the start, because they begin with the premise that humans, be they citizens or govt officials, are something other than what they are.

    “Wanna be pissed off? I saw a show on Hannity about DC “Boomtown.” Did you know that the Lamborghini company opened their North America headquarters in the DC suburbs because the DC area has more Lamborghini sales than ANY PLACE ELSE in the US ”
    I saw that awhile ago….The more likely explanation is that VW of America moved to Herndon Va. (Cheap office space??) and consolidated the VW group, which includes Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley into the same corporate office space inorder to save money.

    On the other hand the, the Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini dealerships are next to each other and appear to be doing quite well.

    • angienc (D) says:

      No, that isn’t the explanation — the Lamborghini guy was interviewed — he stated they opened up headquarters there because more Lamborghinis are sold in DC than in any other city in the USA *and* that in DC most buyers didn’t finance — they paid IN CASH.

  6. wmcb says:

    I’m not a huge Hannity fan to say the least – not because he’s too partisan (I learn to see past that) but because he’s sort of dumb. Nice, but dumb.

    However, he’s getting ready in a few minutes to do an in depth special on Benghazi with timelines, etc that might be interesting. Thought I’d give a heads up.

    Fox News:

    The following statement was issued by a White House official, when asked whether the sequester would affect the first lady’s office budget.

    “The First Lady’s office is part of the Executive Office of the President. To comply with the sequester, White House components will cut back on all but the most urgent supply and equipment purchases. Personnel costs will be reduced by implementing a hiring slow-down or freeze, furloughing employees or reducing salaries. The reduced staffing levels will necessarily affect the critical, day-to-day official functions of the White House – but they also have an impact on routine public functions like responding to public correspondence, updating the White House website and facilitating White House tours of both the residence and the West Wing.”

    Not a word about FLOTUS’ travel and vacations.

      Doesn’t strike anyone as the least bit curious he didn’t take his oath on a bible which is traditional? Perhaps all the rumors are true.
