‘Look, they got jobs’

Who’s in the valley when the shit rolls downhill? Twenty-five thousand Coloradans. Another 21,000 folks in Kentucky. Some 454,000 Californians.

And that’s just the the tip of the turd-berg. All because the Republicans have no shame and the Democrats have no balls.

Where was all this hand-wringing over the deficit when the Elefinks were running two wars off the budget, flushing buckets of your grandbabies’ money down the loo of the Daffy-Fudd dream of global empire? That this murderous profligacy continues under a Donk administration is doubly abhorrent, but at least it’s in the budget where everyone can get a good, cold, hard look at the cost of being the world’s cop on the beat.

This is not about the deficit. It’s about power, and the little guy is on the short end of that very big stick.

Kentuckian Latoya Collins gets it exactly right. Waiting at the Jobs Center in Lexington, the 27-year-old — who hasn’t been without work since she was 15, until now — says maybe Congress doesn’t notice the working man.

“Look, they got jobs,” she told the Lexington Herald-Leader. More’s the pity. America is laying off all the wrong people.

    I wondered the same thing — all these Tea Party bozos ranting about the deficit only AFTER Obama takes over and tries to clean up the mess. How many of ’em voted for the Daffy/Fudd Administration that got us into the economic crisis and voted for the McInsane/Caribou Barbie ticket, which would have just worsened it? We had adult supervision in DeeCee for barely two years…now we’ll see how fast the Repuglicans can fix things by cutting social program spending while keeping taxes low. Why do people vote for folks who keep trying the same “make the rich richer” schemes that work only to do just that..at the expense of everyone else? My wife just replies to my rants with…”people are stupid” and I can’t argue much with that logic. We’re planning on spending less time than ever in the USA over the next few years so we can pay less attention to this stupidity!

    “People are stupid.” Yep, that about covers it. A nation with a 10-second attention span is incapable of self-governance. Just keep showing the dumb sons of bitches shiny objects, titties, whatever it takes to keep them from trying to cop a peek at the man behind the curtain.

    Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.

    Sheep going baa baa baa. Wait til you see the next generation -can’t write or read, and they don’t care – they can text while the phone is still in their pocket though…

    Can someone in the GOP or Tea Party please explain to me how it is “conservative” to borrow trillions to pay for a war, and then when you notice the interest is piling up, borrow even more to give yourself a tax break?

    It’s a photo-finish in the race to see which party disappoints the most. I don’t expect squat from the Dems. They promise the world, claim to be able to save us from everything from killer bees to paper cuts, all with no idea how to pay for it. But at least with the Dems, you get what you see. The GOP is like the proctologist who tells you to bend over, this will only take a minute … and then halfway into the exam, you notice he has both hands on your shoulders.

    Trivia question: who was the last GOP president to reduce federal spending?

    (Trick question … )

    The Reps still think that Ray-gun”s trickle down theory worked, though history shows it was Clinton that pulled out of the mess. BTW, what ever happened to the “Moral Majority” that was trying to seize power back in the day? Oh, that’s right, they were only moral when it suited their purposes. Kinda like the Tea Baggers…..
