Oh Crap, It’s Monday Again!


I didn’t write a post because I was up late watching the Raiders beat the Chargers. The game did not start until 8:30pm Klown time.

Just wait. I’m sure Obama or his minions will do or say something stupid I can write about today. I have faith in them.

This is an open thread.

    It’s raining hard, there’s a tornado watch, and it’s Monday. I think I’ll go back to bed. Or maybe hide under the bed.

    “Of course, I want people to have health care,” Vinson said. “I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”

      You’d be surprised how many think Obama’s wants it to be free but the racist Republicans won’t let him.

        That might have worked if they used it a while but they went immediately to calling people who cannot afford health insurance and eating “deadbeats”. The viciousness they are displaying shows just how deep the shit they find themselves. I think bots are having real difficulty processing just how big a disaster it is. I just read that the state exchanges were not even “hooked up” to the national databases to verify anything like SSNs or income. They just didn’t do it. The insurance companies offering policies are pushing back because they don’t want to be stuck with fraudulent policies. It is so screwed up.

    This timeline is damning. The House started out demanding a full defund of ACA, and have repeatedly compromised back to now only asking a 1 yr delay of the mandate, and trying to fund appropriations in separate bills.

    It is very obvious who is being stubborn here, and it’s not the GOP.

      Here is what’s happening in the budget standoff: Mom and dad agree that Johnny needs lunch money, shoes, and school books. They disagree on whether Johnny needs a new jacket.

      Parent one: I say we buy everything but stipulate that no jacket shall be bought. (defund the jacket)

      Parent two: NO! Buy it all or no deal.

      Parent one: Okay then, how about we buy everything, but stipulate we’ll wait a year to buy the jacket.

      Parent two: NO!

      Parent one: Okay then, Let’s buy him the lunch at least.

      Parent two: NO!

      Parent one: Look we disagree on stuff, but the shoes we both know he needs. So let’s at least get that.

      Parent two: NO!

      Parent one: This is ridiculous. Yes, we are going to continue to argue over the jacket issue, but can we at least buy the books he needs? Here’s the check for that.

      Parent two: NO!


      Whether or not you agree or disagree that Johnny really needs that jacket, (you may think he needs it very badly) it is a complete fiction that Parent one is the total bad guy here.

      The main stream media is slowly starting to cover the sticker shock of enormous premium increases and obscene annual deductables to almost everyone. Next they will be forced hopefully to write about just how few and skimpy the “subsidies” will be. The final nail will be when it finally hits them between the eyes that a complete absense of disposable income after premium extortion enforced by the IRS and Democrats impacts every other sector of the ecomomy (their advertisers) only to benefit campaign cash paying Dem constituencies. I think the Shock Doctrine is playing out.

    Obama blinks. Send Jack Lew out to blink in public for him. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/white-house-official-says-obama-would-accept-short-term-agreement-on-debt-ceiling/2013/10/07/ef7b1d94-2f56-11e3-8906-3daa2bcde110_story.html
    “President Obama would accept a short-term increase in the federal borrowing cap, rather than one lasting a year or more, a senior White House official said Monday. The statement was an acknowledgment by the administration that it may not be possible to reach a deal on a long-term increase in the debt ceiling before a critical Oct. 17 deadline.
    Gene Sperling, director of the National Economic Council, said members of Congress ultimately have the responsibility to decide how often they want to raise the debt ceiling, although he argued that an extended hike is preferable.”
    I thought the WH didn’t need no stinking House of Representatives to raise the debt ceiling. I wonder why they have done an about face?

    • Lulu says:

      Obama still wants an increase but he still blinked and undercuts his own mouthpiece allies who were all claiming he had the power to increase it on his own. He did keep his word about not negotiating. But he gave in just like he did with Putin.

      • 1539days says:

        I think Congress should pass a $1 billion increase, just so America can see that a billion dollars is overspent in less than 24 hours. In fact, they should pass a day’s worth of extra debt every day until Obamacare is repealed.

    • r u reddy says:

      I have read over on Naked Capitalism about those ways Obama has to raise the debt ceiling or do some functional equivalent on his own.
      It seemed well-argued. If even 1 or 2 of those ways are legal and Obama doesn’t use them, that is proof enough that Obama does not want to raise the debt-ceiling until he gets his Grand Catfood Bargain in return for it. If the Tea Party Republicans will just agree to give up on Obama care and settle for cutting ( and then destroying?) SS/Medicare for decades to come, Obama will instruct his Catfood Democrats to agree to the deal. Can the Tea Party Republicans give up their repeal-Obamacare teddy bear in return for getting the cut
      SS/Medicare gold mine for decades to come? Wouldn’t it be ironic if Obama’s nastiness so offends the Tea Party Republicans that they will not give him his Grand Bargain, which was to be his other Signature Achievement?

    Just spoke with my son, who is at the closed WIC office in SC (my grandbaby gets WIC). He is now making sure all the angry people in the parking lot know that the R house voted to fund WIC and Dems/Obama refused.

    **evil grin**

    AP photo from the last shutdown. Notice that it says the parks are closed **to visitor services**. I.E. no guided tours, no staff, etc. At no time in history has ANY president barricaded off open-air monuments and posted gueards to prevent citizens from just walking around. Until Obama.

  12. helenk3 says:

    according to backtrack he did NOT say he would not negotiate, but then a long list of things he will NOT negotiate under .

    turned him off, I would have washed my kids mouth out with soap for telling as many lies as he does

      I had a Taiwanese professor tell me that in China, medical care is pretty good if you are a factory worker in a city. If you were a rural farmer, however, you were much worse off. The perfect socialist model is a huge city where everything is centrally located. The residents would have nothing of their own, land would be rented and temporary and their family would be secondary to the will of the state.

        It’s much easier for the progs to let those bitter clingers of guns & bibles to die off then to win them over to their POV.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I rather be on Duck Dynasty’s side than the vile progs 😉 It also appears that Harry Reid’s the new leader of the Dem party so Obama doesn’t have to get his hands dirty if this showdown-shutdown blows up in his face.

  16. 1539days says:

    One funny piece of circular logic has come back. Democrats are saying that we have to fund the government at current levels because we’re obligated to pay for those things. The reality is that the only thing the government is obligated to pay for is debt service. Back when Republicans halted the debt limit increase, Obama claimed that they couldn’t do that because the increase was used to pay for commitments that have already been made.

    Here’s the point. Let’s say that the debt limit increases are necessary to pay the bills the government has already incurred. The solution to this is to pass a lower budget. Yet somehow, there are mandatory parts of the budget that cannot be changed. One of those is supposedly Obamacare, even though it will cost more than the taxes it will take in.

    Now, we’re left with the left saying that Republicans must fund everything the Democrats have enshrined into law, no matter the cost. If they want to cut the budget, they have to take it out of defense, even though that part of the budget is less than the total annual deficit.

    Except it has. Ted Kennedy did it in 1973.

  18. Lulu says:

    President Broncobama is voting present again. He can’t keep up.
    “President Obama has handed over the reins of leadership on government funding and the debt limit to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).”
    “Reid is now fully in charge of his party’s negotiating strategy, a significant change from past showdowns with Republicans.”

  20. ecoast says:

    As Lulu has noted above, WH opened the door a bit for debt negotiations. I think a couple of things happened.
    1. Repubs are winning the argument. Boehner, Cruz, and Rand Paul did well on Sunday shows. No major Dems found on Sunday shows apparently. Repubs were able to get their message through.

    2. Gallup and Rasmussen polls showed O’s approval ratings went down by 10 points after shutdown. Dem internal polling must have said the same thing or worse. National Parks optics were bad too.

    3. They must have expected Ocare debut would go extremely well and their approval ratings would skyrocket or something. The opposite happened.
    What is one to do?

    is one

    Here we go, DC Ramming Driver’s family speaks out. Setting up for a lawsuit? Sharpton? Jackson?


  23. Constance says:

    I think it is time for Obama to ask Bill Clinton to show him how to get out of the mess he is in with Republicans. I don’t think his strategy of name calling and implying Republicans have evil motives is likely to work. I don’t actually care what kind of trouble Obama has but he is taking our country down with him.
