The Solution Of A Five Year Old, Brought To You By The Democrat Party

Political Cartoons by Jerry Holbert

It’s comforting to me to know that even during a time when our nation seems to be hell bent on following a path that leads to self destruction, I am supplied with something from the half who want to lead us there that makes me laugh. The greatest handicap any person can have you see is the amputation of their sense of humor. So, in keeping with that template being placed, I give you Maxine Waters and Keith Ellison, two of our nation’s elected leaders, who wish to replace Hank Johnson as the world’s dumbest democratically elected national legislator. (Hank Johnson if you’ll recall, was the man who asked a Navy Admiral if the Navy had taken precautions to prevent the Island of Guam from tipping over and falling into the sea.) It may not appear so at first blush, but these two have said something here that is even dumber than that.

Special note to Maxine Waters: One of your very few actual Constitutional Duties Madam Congress Woman is to establish a budget for our nation to operate on. If there is no budget in existence, or being considered, that can only be so due to your personal incompetence. Thank you for making my point for me, you idiot.

As a small lad of five, I once admonished my parents to just toss the bills in the trash. A simple solution to the pieces of paper delivered by the mail man which never seemed to be greeted as happy arrivals into our home. Even at five, I could make my parents smirk. That solution it seems would not make the source for those unwanted pieces of news go away, only our immediate thought of them. We would still have to pay those bills, they told me, just because you ditch the notice does not mean that the debt would no longer be ours to pay. That bill was just a reminder of our obligation, a courtesy to us by our creditors to remind us that we stilled owed for what ever good or service that we had already purchased.

I am no longer five, and as such I can see the error in my logic. In fact, I pretty much understood the concept by the time I gained the ability to read and write, certainly by the time I paid my first bill as an adult. Maxine Waters and Keith Ellison it seems never learned that valuable life lesson. They, as adults have simply determined that the bad news delivered by the all too persistent postman must be forever vanquished to the circular file. In their childlike minds, if they are not told about the national debt, and it’s staggering proportion you see, then it simply must not be so.

As a five year old child, my parents had the good sense to not give me my very own credit card in their name. “Ponies and water slides for everybody!” was a proclamation that they wisely made the decision to avoid hearing. It would seem that my parents, who were younger then than I am now, realized that supplying me with my own credit card, thinking that I could just throw the mail in the trash and never have to worry about the bill, could in fact lead to potentially terrible consequences.

Maxine and Keith unfortunately have each been granted 1/870th control of the world’s highest limit credit card. An even scarier thought is that they share that control with the aforementioned Hank Johnson, and they are not alone in their thinking. Just last week, I heard a quote from one of the leaders on their side of our political divide, one Steny Hoyer. “We don’t have a spending probem, we have a paying for it problem,” he blustered in response to a question about the upcoming sequestration. Please take a moment to allow that to sink in.

After years of telling us all that the bag full of free goodies promised from the government largess would never have to be paid for by the American taxpaying public, combined with years of about half of all Americans believing it, Steny dropped the bomb that there is no such thing as a free lunch after all. These jerks have flushed a staggering amount of money down the collective toilet. So much in fact that they needed to borrow about $16.5 Trillion so far that we do not have. At the same time that we are told to please just throw the bill in the trash rather than force them to read the bad news brought in the mail, one of them is chastising us for not being willing to pay the tab, that none of us seems to have wanted run up in the first place.

Anger does not begin to cover it. Laughter does better. Close your eyes and repeat to yourself aloud three times, we lost the popular vote to these children in 5 of the last 6 Presidential elections. Do you still believe that the Republicans are not the party of Palookas? Maybe Karl Rove should join the Democrat Party, our nation would be better served were he on the other side.

Oh what the heck, it’s still a funny second place finisher, so enjoy!

    nope. here goes the economist versus finance discipline again.

    the economist sez that everyone has taken from the pot in some way, be it child credits, mortgage write offs, etc.

    the finance guyz exploit the rules in place to maximize the return for their client.

    its easier to listen to the finance guy than to the economist. economists tell you that you are part of the problem. financeists make sure you maximize being the problem.

    we are all to blame, we all part of the fedgov bubble in one wa or another. the other side side figured out faster how to make us pay for it.

    We are all getting “free stuff.”

    @ coldwarrior:

    Putting aside for the moment that the few times we do disagree is usually more fun than the 98% of the time that we are on the same page, I call bullshit.

    I’m usually one of the very first to say cut everything and let’s have our tax returns be the size of a postcard. I am always against any spending and hate taxation loopholes, ie deductions and credits for specially approved behaviors. That being said, I do not for one moment believe that a majority of our citizens approved of the big picture scenario that we now find ourselves embroiled in. There was a very specific reason why this nonsense was achieved incrementally, and that is because nobody sane and intelligent would have gone for it all at once.

    The point I was going for was that while Hoyer may be correct in his assertion that nobody wants to pay for the consequences of this latest drinking binge, he is hypocritical in that he was one of the people promising that this particular bar in which we all partied at would never demand that the tab be covered at all, or that the tab would be picked up by those elusive rich.

    @ Tanker:

    Conservatives believe in individual freedom too, but see it as a product of order. People can be free, but they’re not born that way as Jean-Jacques Rousseau surmised. Instead they become free under the architecture of good institutions that educate men and tamp down their worst impulses. These institutions include families, churches, and local communities. They also include what Edmund Burke called “little platoons” and Alexis de Tocqueville called “voluntary associations” – the local groups and organizations that provide our lives with structure. When this structure, along with Meyer’s “organic moral order,” start to recede, big government creeps in to fill the void.

    ummm, why cant the little platoon be just one mind? why does one have to belong to something else to be free? isnt requiring to belong a restriction?

    this is fun

    @ Flyovercountry:

    Speaking of the rich, did you kno wthat I’m rich? I must be, because my taxes went up last year. This despite a bascally flat income. My sister’s taxes went up too. We’re those dastardly rich that don’t want to pay our fair share, no doubt. Funny. I don’t feel rich, and I don’t make more than a quarter million, either. Considerably less than that. Funny how that works, isn’t it? Taxes went up for the people who pay taxes last year. For the 47% that don’t pay taxes, that’s just fine. For those of us who do, though, well, I for one am tired of getting raped to give free shit to Obama voters.

    The post itself gave me little information. What I found striking was the comment section. I never have, nor would I put you or anyone hear in the Ron Paul corner. Still find myself wanting to explore more on this issue with little time for research! Trying to come to grips with the two!


  15. 16 | February 28, 2013 12:51 pm

    @ coldwarrior:

    yeah, I guess this means we’re not done with the Ron Paul for President silliness yet. They’ll keep floating this idiocy that he’s the true Conservative in the GOP field and start a draft the crazy uncle movement just in time for the Iowa-I’ll-buy-your-beer-and-cheese-fries-meaningless straw poll in 2016. I had hoped we were done with the banality of the leftist hippies suddenly turned Republicans and inflicting themselves upon the primary process, but alas no. Baton down the hatches boys, the Paulbats are not done by a damn sight.


  16. 17 | February 28, 2013 12:55 pm

    @ Flyovercountry:

    Paulians are not Leftists., They are Far Right Anarcho-Capitalists. They are Rightwing Hippies.

    In all honesty none of this is relevant. Until the technological gap is closed, none of this matters. OFA is a machine never seen in American politics.

    @ Iron Fist:

    Always works that way. Warren Buffett has a whole team of accountants, CFP’s, and Lawyers who figure ways to keep him from paying any taxes at all. I’m sure he owns a few alpaca’s and such too. Meanwhile, at the same time he publicly states he wishes to pay more, he’s appealed to the supreme court for relief from the decision that says he owes over a Billion in back taxes, while getting he and his secretary, (who’s salary is north of $1 Million/year by the way,) front row seats at the Bamster’s Kabuki SOTU ruination of your prime time television experience.

    Shit rolls down hill, which is where you and I stand.

    I was interested in this topic after cuomos infamous you don’t need 10 bullets to kill a deer statement.

    5 rounds sounds pretty good. I did not spend hardly any time looking, but I found a report from the Seattle police I believe. In that report they found over 10 period police averaged over 9 rounds for each hit.

    Himself included, apparently. Biden talked about being “a white kid living in a border state growing up in grade school and high school” and seeing the civil rights marches as things “that affected my life and so many white boys like me.”

    So much so that he took action. “He said he did things like trying to desegregate movie theaters,” said the media pool report from the Wednesday event. Biden added: “No big deal, I want to make it clear to the press.”

    And for those who are geographically challenged, DE and PA aren’t border states

    How about trying “message” again?

    Conservatives have four problems:

    1) Articulating their message in the first place (Bill Whittle spoke to this when he did that video some weeks ago about Romney “not believing in his own message”);

    2) Expressing that message by framing it in a way which puts their opponents on the defensive by countering their opponents’ efforts to distort it, and breaking through years of poor messaging;

    3) Living up to their message instead of caving to pressure, as so many so-called conservative legislators do;

    4) Communicating that message broadly, supporting people who do so, and coordinating its dissemination.

    The first two are a matter of personal and organizational clarity; the third, a matter of courage and integrity. For the last of these, technology is critical—for if the message is not communicated, it is the tree falling in the forest which nobody hears.

    No, the point is that our side is stuck in the mass-mailing days -- blanket communication that isn’t targeted. The other day, Priebus was saying one of the things he wanted to improve for the RNC was it’s email list -- the DNC has at least a million.

    The RNC has my email and it goes into spam. What good is that?

    WTF?

    You need good data to identify the target and the message for that target and the method that would be most effective delivering to that target.

    I worked in Marketing IT at MCI. I’ve seen some very good what is now called data mining to figure out who to sell what products to and how to stop churn.

    My plan is to boil them a bit and then drain them. Then I will cook a couple of slices’ worth of chopped up bacon and some onion in a pan, then add the greens and a splash of vinegar and let it cook some more.

    That is just wrong….I worked my rear off keeping my house clean. My waistline was just fine thank-you and plus I had two boys…of course my house work doing in the past few years has had to be done by others due to me being ill. My waistline still isn’t that bad. They really need to stay out of people’s business. It’s really, really annoying.

    Fry a couple pieces of bacon and cut up an onion and saute’ the onion in the bacon grease pour water in and dice up a couple of turnips into cubes and then put mustard greens and turnips cubes in boiling water and season to taste and cook till done. Make sure you have side dish of corn bread.

    @ 8 Tanker:

    libertarians almost always select the position of individual liberty.

    Thus libertarians tend to favor marijuana legalization not to accommodate their “liberal friends,” as Coulter puts it, but because they see it as an individual choice, while many conservatives worry it will make civil society more indolent and expensive. The line is even more emblazoned on prostitution. Libertarians see no reason why a woman shouldn’t be able to sell her body.

    Consider Ayn Rand and her view of the family. Conservatives consider the family to be perhaps the most precious unit of civil society and a necessity for individual freedom. Rand saw forced familial relations as a shackle on the individual.

    I would say coulter is Chris Christies pansie and I wouldn’t let her forget it.

    libertarianism is changing faster than conservatism. When young people go to look to be conservative, they are attracted to libertarianism.

    I have yet to see a libertarian leader that I thought was wise and/or sane. I’ll voter libertarian this next election cycle and reserve my judgement for the next potus.
