Is this what the left really wants?

New York Slimes wages last ditch war on sanity, from Joe Nocera, via Confederate Yankee :
You know what they say: Never negotiate with terrorists. It only encourages them.
These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people. Their intransigent demands for deep spending cuts, coupled with their almost gleeful willingness to destroy one of America’s most invaluable assets, its full faith and credit, were incredibly irresponsible. But they didn’t care. Their goal, they believed, was worth blowing up the country for, if that’s what it took
Nocera and his ilk, at the Slimes and elsewhere are addicts. They are addicted to your tax dollars.
Reax from CF:
- You don’t solve your cash flow problems by raising your credit limit. That only makes your inevitable bankruptcy that much more traumatic
- You don’t cure an addiction by feeding it
Nocera has two choices. Either he can peacefully agree to end his addiction to our tax dollars, or he can be made to do it otherwise.
Enough with the phony job pivots, from Puffington Post :
Today 1:44 PM Obama: Let The Pivot To Jobs Begin
Speaking just minutes after the Senate passed legislation to raise the debt ceiling — removing the last political hurdle for that bill’s passage – President Obama delivered a speech in the Rose Garden in which he once again pleaded for a renewed focus on jobs.
Sounding at times exasperated that the political conversation had veered so swiftly to the topic of austerity, Obama urged Congress to present him with job-creating bills as soon as it returned from its August recess. The specifics were pretty much the same as the White House has pushed for weeks if not months: free trade agreements, patent reform, an infrastructure bank, regulatory changes and the extension of the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits.
- One, enough with the farging pivots. Give us a plan.
- Two, isn’t one those what forty-three White House czars capable of coming up with a plan to actually create jobs without having to wait for Dirty Harry Reid to come back from watering his pomegranates?
What goes around, comes around, from DeWayne Wickham, Useless Toady :
What should be clear to the whole world watching the debt-ceiling battle is that the Republicans are far more intent on taking the president’s scalp than balancing the nation’s books. They had ample opportunities to do the latter during the eight years of George W. Bush.
Mr. Wickham, respect is not a right. Rather it is earned. While respect may be typically extended on s provision basis, it has to earned to be retained. Barack Obama is a moron, a socialist, a liar and incompetent. And you wonder why so few people actually respect him?
Where has the black wealth gone? From Thomas Sowell, Townhall :
Recent statistics on the average wealth or net worth of blacks are a painful reminder that rhetoric favoring blacks does not mean that politicians using such rhetoric are actually helping blacks. The media seized upon the statistics published by the Pew Research Center to show that whites averaged far more net worth than blacks, and that this disparity was now greater than it was in years past. But what is even more revealing is that the net worth of blacks in 2009 was less than half of what it was in 2005.
I can not in fair use quote Doctor Sowell’s conclusion. However I can sum it up: government programs.
Now granted the federal goovrnment and liberals did not set out to destroy black wealth. Destruction black wealth was not the federal government’s intent, only their result.
