president Obama and Congress need to attend credit counseling

New York Times --

president Obama that is pressuring Republicans on Wednesday to accept higher taxes as part of any plan to pare down the federal deficit [which they created, not us] and told lawmakers that they "need to do their job" before the United States risked the faulting in its debt.
Obama directly challenging Republican leaders, "everybody else has been willing to move off their maximalist position — they need to do the same."

The House speaker, John A. Boehner commented stating that the president's remarks ignore legislative and economic reality.

John A. Boehner is 100% correct... they are not living and economic reality in fact, somehow they must think that we have an endless pot of money that all they have to do is pass new legislation to take it from us.

like the Obamacare for example in 2016 if you do not have qualifying health insurance, you may be fined for a family over $2000 which could be more than your tax return. Now what is the federal government going to do when you can't pay it?

Personally, regarding the debt ceiling... I hope that the Republicans stick to their guns and do not raise the debt ceiling and force the government to start making massive cutbacks [which of course will first be Medicare, Medicaid and other issues which will directly affect US] and wring them back into reality.

Remember... WE THE PEOPLE did not incur the federal deficit... WE HAD NO SAY OR CONTROL OVER IT!

And if we did... I seriously doubt that we would have borrowed money from another country AND THEN turnaround and give that money out to somebody else.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke stated recently that he was confused and puzzled why the economy was not recovering as predicted.

Look in the mirror!

In closing, I have some food for thought...

The president stated that the United States risks defaulting on its debt.

so what?

Who's going to come to us to collect it?

I mean seriously... the IRS or other debt collectors that the "normal" citizen faces when it defaults on its debt?

And what collateral did we give China for the money that we borrowed?

I hope that Obama didn't take out a second on the White House.

hey, did you hear the one about the armed military troops crossing the US border the other day??

Pro 8 News --
Headline:"Mexican troops in three military trucks crossed into the united States at Bridge Two" which clearly is a violation on international law and [surprise] Customs and Border Protection inspectors were trying to figure out what to do because the troops told them that they [their words] lost their way to Nuevo Laredo and did not know the area.

"you see, I told you you should've stopped and asked for directions!"

got lost? yeah right! GPS?

...and I have a bridge that I can sell you too!

Actually, I am not a bit surprised that the customs and border protection inspectors were confused about what to do because they were afraid that somebody might say that they were "profiling" if they detained them.

but what is even more interesting is that if this was as "serious" as the news story is making it, why is this not hitting the headlines all over the place and why is there not any follow-up story on this either?

I guess because in reality if Mexico really wanted to invade the United States, they wouldn't just sends three armed vehicles through the front door, they would just send masses secretly through unprotected parts of our borders....

... oh wait...

Columbo's Peter Falk -- dead at 83

The tv's "Columbo" star Peter Falk died Thursday night at his home in Beverly Hills, California. He was 83.
"Oh, one more thing...." was his catch phrase on the show.

Another great goes... RIP

the PC crowd gives illegal immigrants a new name

Robin's commentary --

first they were "illegal aliens"

Because that too harsh, they were renamed "illegal immigrants"

but that is not very politically correct...

So that was changed to, "undocumented immigrants"

still seemingly kind of harsh and insulting to some people...

So the new name for those who are not authorized to be in the country is...

[Insert drumroll sound effect]

[Wait for it...]



So I guess the next time that somebody breaks in your home, just remember that it is not politically correct to call them a burglar... or a "home invasion robber"... they are now known as...

"Informal house guests"
