Up is Down

It is simply incredible to me how the mass mind is brainwashed by TV, radio and the written word. Of course, my theory is that people believe what their emotions tell them, and find the evidence to support it later. Ego-driven delusion, as my shrink would say.

Let us go back to where this sequester began, shall we?

The Budget Control Act of 2011 (Pub.L. 112–25, S. 365, 125 Stat. 240, enacted August 2, 2011) is a federal statute in the United States that was signed into law by President Barack Obama on August 2, 2011. The Act brought conclusion to the 2011 United States debt-ceiling crisis, which had threatened to lead the United States into sovereign default on or about August 3, 2011.

The Sequester Is a Republican-Inflicted Wound

"It is a direct result of the insistence by GOP leaders in the summer of 2011 that they would not raise the federal debt ceiling unless President Obama agreed to dramatic spending cuts."

Trust Us....

There you have it people......The simple truth, and I am shocked no one remembers......snark.

Please my fellow Americans, please.

Remember that since passage of The New Deal, a certain sect of the GOP has wanted to destroy it.

Why, here's one of them!:

  • "Ronald Reagan, Hollywood film actor; strong New Dealer in 1940s; started opposing New Deal programs in the 1950s as a corporate spokesman for the General Electric company."

Factually, many liberals opposed it too...they said it didn't go far enough to help the poor.

But, in THIS country.....ANY little bit allowed for the poor is like pulling teeth. I say Roosevelt did a good thing.

And I say President Obama tries to do good things, too. I say he is blocked continuously by a group of infiltraitors, who see America as their private ATM.

We Care...Really

So, let us get this straight, please:

The Sequester is in place, because it was used as black-mail by the GOP: Their bargaining chip, if you will, so they would agree to raise the debt ceiling....oddly, something they have done many times before under Republican Presidents.

Obama says Reagan raised debt ceiling 18 times; George W. Bush seven times

Republican mouthpiece...Tea Party cheerleaders

Own It

Yes, Republicans, this is YOUR own it. I suggest you enjoy it, as your members in Congress did the other day.

“This will be the first significant tea party victory in that we got what we set out to do in changing Washington,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.), a tea party Republican elected in 2010.

Shared Sacrifice

Stop deflecting and re-directing. Your goal is to cut government spending, and no tax increases for revenue.

Own it, and live with the consequences of it.

Unfortunately, most of you won't feel a thing. Because, while thousands are furloughed, and programs for working moms cut, Representative Huelskamp is getting a raise this month.

So, as with most things Republican lately, I say: enjoy, and NOW, maybe you can stop

Unequal pain and suffering

"As the “sequester” unfolds in Washington, we see this same old pattern holding firm: Republican leaders, now hustling to shirk responsibility for the catastrophe they predicted, insist those automated budget axes won’t do any damage at all."

Unequal benefits the sequester protects

"Of the many injustices that permeate America’s byzantine tax code, few are as outrageous as the tax rate on “carried interest” — the profits made by private equity and hedge fund managers, as well as venture capitalists and partners in real estate investment trusts. This huge tax benefit enriches an already privileged sliver of financiers and violates basic standards of fairness and common sense."

"In an email, Koch brothers’ front group, Americans for Prosperity (AFP), sent congratulations to Republicans and their supporters around the country for helping push sequester cuts AFP says are “an important step forward for economic growth.” The email continued, “Americans for Prosperity thanks Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans for standing up to President Obama and making sure the $85 billion in much-needed sequester spending cuts took effect,” and it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Koch brothers and Republicans own the sequester and are giddy at the prospect of a recession and killing millions of jobs. One aspect of sequester cuts little mentioned is that the devastating $85 billion for 2013 is just the beginning of greater domestic spending cuts, devastating effects on anti-poverty programs, Medicare, and without cessation, the end of recovery."

"In an exclusive interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) replied to a question about the sequester by admitting that Obama ‘didn’t want the cuts.’

BOEHNER: And so, he (Obama) forced this process to occur. And insisted –

TAPPER: But he didn’t want the sequester cuts –

BOEHNER: Well, no, he didn’t want the cuts, but uh, uh, oh, we have the sequester as a result of his demands."

Hmmm...seems rather odd that BO would take a position in light of: The Obama Administration Proposed That Half Of The Cuts In The Sequestration Trigger Should Come From The Defense Budget. “Lew, Nabors, Sperling and Bruce Reed, Biden’s chief of staff, had initially decided to propose using language from the 1985 Gramm-Rudman-Hollings deficit reduction law as the model for the trigger. It seemed tough enough to apply to the current situation. It would require a sequester with half the cuts from Defense, and the other half from domestic programs. There would be no chance the Republicans would want to pull the trigger and allow the sequester to force massive cuts to Defense.” (Bob Woodward, The Price Of Politics, 2012, p. 341)

Of course not.....they are beholden to the Military Industrial Service Industry! Xi, Halliburton, etc.

The R's will allow cuts to service pay, the food-stamps their families are on, and the allowances they receive for disabled children.

But cut private contractors profits?

Not on your life.

R's always target such: Cuts for poor, Give-aways to wealthy. Always and bar none, that is their MO.


And I'm quite shocked that none of the Right has praised he followed the Const., and signed their policies into law...where is the praise?

Barack Obama was given the power to decide where the cuts went and refused it. Are you actually telling me you didn't open and read those links because you didn't like where they came from?

The Washington Post link has the entire FACT CHECKED story.

And this case Jack Lew started it and the White House has admitted it came from their administration. It's on record.

Barack Obama: "I am the president, not a dictator."

The R's would have crucified him for acting on his own. I for one, am glad it went down this way.

We need to suffer the consequences of 2010 to finally realize what the TP is all about.

End of Women's rights

Workers rights

Voting rights....

And rise of serfdom vs ruling class.

No in-between.

And yes, I refuse to read or listen to RW hype. Had enough of it already, and they cannot tell me anything that I don't already know about them and their so-called facts.

Don't you feel the same way?

I regularly see Huffpo, MSNBC laughed at as unreliable spin.

And, if you believe this was Obama's idea....why did he call it dumb and un-neccessary?

And why aren't you praising him?

Don't you want to cut gvt?

You got what you wanted...and if it is Obama as you say: where is the support?

LMC, Great hub! It's insane how the antics of Washington are the talking points of the people instead of a uniting of the people to push back against Washington. The cuts were designed to be so heinous that both parties would be forced to come to the table and compromise. Boehner and the far right refuse any new revenue, even with entitlements on the table, it's pathetic! The Republican party will suffer the consequences, no matter how they try to spin it.

And yes there is plenty of spin in this blame game. No new revenue is the problem, unwillingness to a balanced approach is the problem, taking from the mouths of babes in order to ptotect private jet owners loop holes...shameful!

I listened to James Sunday, as well as Boehner himself on Meet the Press. The cuts are not large enough and they are poorly done, they are by design causing harm and deeper cuts could and should be made to do any actual benefit to the defecit...This is a shameful action, coming together and using a scapel rather than an axe, cutting waste, reforming entitlements and the tax code are all possibilities of a much greater deal that hopefully will be made, but with Americans clinging to talking points rather than writing their Congressman, what will force their hand to be sensible? Shameful that Conservatives are letting their Congressman use such gross negligence towards our military perparedness...all to toe the Party line! Many democrats are on board for entitlement reform and tax reform which could actually shave billions off the defecit over time, and for those dems not getting on board I write to POTUS to say stand up to our Party! I would like to see the likes of Conservatives such as yourself do the same and write your Congressman and tell them to compromise and put revenues on the table by closing loop holes and deductions on the top!

Personally , I would not give the TP anything but Gitmo! Shameful, and un-neccessary suffering....and for what?

Deferred Interest for the rich guys and gals, that's what!

All these little perks and bennies they get just for being rich: what is this, Dubai?

And how come our elderly, disabled and children are being cut, while foreign aid lives on?

The sequester was never meant to go into effect: it was supposed to be a stop-guard!

So--let's get it right:

1. 2 cuts to every 1 tax increase....this is not acceptable to the GOP.

It must be 100% cuts to spending....except for the spending they like.

2. They now claim Obama is the one who wanted this sequester, even though he called it dumb and un-neccessary.

3. Now that they claim Obama is responsible, will they support Obama? They are, after all, the party of gvt cuts.

Just heard Romney say the sequestation wouldn't have happened if he was prez. Well Duh! The House would have given him the debt ceiling, with no problem.

No, but I have been gagging on the rw blogoshpere.....are they really that dense? I mean....just because Fixed Snooze has becom the MSM..... do they really think we are all stupid?

Sequester put into place to prevent the R's from derailing the gvt. You know: they wanted to not raise the debt ceiling over the Bush tax cuts. They were willing to let the gvt die, to preserve them.

So--Obama admn put in place sequester: Govern, or we will all see cuts we don't like: shared pain.

Well, the R's don't want to govern, they want to RULE.

Here's what they turned down: 2 cuts to every 1 tax increase. BO wants to close the carried interest loop-hole.

R's say No way. We take the sequester instead.

Koch loves it. Bohener gets 98% of what he wants, and YOU people blame Obama!

It's classic brainwashing. Classic.

I saw a tweet the other day: "Obama did TARP, and Bush ended the war." Kid you not. This is what people believe from watching Fox and reading RW blogs, and listening to hate-talk radio.

Big Biz bought this country and peolpe are buying their lies.

Their gvt sticks their nose in private business, takes away rights and still has the nerve to call itself a freedom fighter.

What a huge psy-op.

I refuse to let that garbage in my psyche. It is insane, and criminal!


but ok--i'll take a look at that link. If it starts out "Obama's fault"..I'm gone. Lies are not allowed in my brain anymore.

It's chock full of them since ALL our troubles began on Jan 20,2009. isn't that right?

Obama did TARP, and Bush ended the war....KID YOU NOT.

"he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of.

“We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’


That's right! Congress has to start living with the consequences of their actions!

THEY wanted the sequester in liue of ending the carried interest loop-hole.

Had they ended it, had they agreed to tax revenues, it would have been averted.

But no--they said ALL cuts, NO taxes.

They got what they wanted...they knew the consequence, and they took protect the wealthy at the top.

Period, end of story. And same as always,I might add.

"If you want to understand what this is really about, go back to Ezra Klein’s interview with an unnamed GOP Senator, in which the lawmaker professed himself surprised to hear that Obama had offered Chained CPI on Social Security, along with other real entitlement cuts, in exchange for new revenues via the closing of loopholes enjoyed by the wealthy and corporations."

"Add in the GOP’s absolute resistance to any further revenue increases in the wake of January’s fiscal cliff deal and you can see why House Speaker John Boehner ended up concluding that the sequester was the most palatable option on the table. It’s not like any deal he could have struck with the White House would have had a chance of passing muster with his fellow Republicans."


GOP sequester. Lock stock and barrell.

Unless you want to admit that they are the tyrannical rulers? which they are.

I HARDLY consider letting the Bush tax cuts expire...after they black-mailed an x-tra year out of them, a "tax increase"

Mind games....forever.

Let's make the Pentagon deal with the sequester like everybody else...any idea why the R's want to exempt that agency?

What happened to "shared sacrifice"?

Much like gvt policies...they too favor the rich!

We do need more cuts: from the lavish excess the rich enjoy here.

White House tours are for everybody: national parks are for everybody. Figures your peeps would say that's ok to cancel, but not the miltary ind complex $200 for a toilet seat!

The idea was a result of Republican skullduggery. Imagine having to be forced to do their job! The party of NO would just as soon see the whole country go down in flames, than govern with Obama...why you think that is?

Two party's completely dependant on Corporate money in order to be elected, whom pay no taxes, ship our jobs over seas and keep their money off shore. What else is left until Americans wake up and demand that Corporations pay taxes. The Government can not tell them to, they are the ones who got them elected in the first place. I am still wondering why Romney has not shown us his tax return? Obama showed us his and I think paying your taxes makes you a citizen, not imaginary person that we claim corporations our. If we demanded that 35 percent tax rate owed the US tax payers and went back to get it, we would own every Corporation in America.

This next budget I am finding out intends to actually cut all the loop holes and that means things are about to get real interesting. Look for another battle and a storm of lies about to pour out. The current average citizen is being punished by their masters to convince us that forcing them to pay taxes is making our lives miserable. I can hardly wait to see how they intend to punish us next. If you our investing in the stock market you better get out before the next correction. Every percentage in taxes they actually have to pay up to 35 percent, is going to be removed from their stock holders precious pockets. Why do you think the market has been rising?

Not a Republican budget, that's for sure. Which would look something like this:

"Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), who entered Congress this year after defeating former Rep. John Sullivan (R-OK) in last year’s GOP primary, told Mike Huckabee on his radio show today that he’s “hoping and praying” his Party will finally defund Obamacare.

Rather than going through the normal legislative process, Bridenstine proposed a more pernicious approach: making a government-funding bill contingent on Congress defunding Obamacare. “If they want to fund the government, they’ve got to defund Obamacare,” Bridenstine said. “I support that 100%.”


Boy---sure can reach across the aisle and reason w this guy,huh? I mean really: it's so Obama's fault that all the R's are like this.

Obama's budget includes cuts and revenues.

Obama's budget has to include the 2 wars and prescrip drug gimme's that elBushbo made into law.

He had to take responsibility for the things Bush put on the credit card.

Republican responsibilty is raising taxes on the lower classes, so the upper classes can have a cut.

And throwing anti-abortion ryders onto everythig that passes their table.

Ehhhh. Sorry: America spoke: Obama won.

Just as Bush got his agenda done on his watch--not giving a dam about the Dems, so it has to be now.

It's patently obvious the R's are out to lunch.

Obama and the Dems can do the budget without em.

Take a page from the Bush years!!

What's important is the Rbaglicans are missing an H....HUMANITY.

And No--I missed nothing. I watched it all.

That's why I have 0 compassion or care about the R's.

They have shown no inclination to compromise, help, treat the prez with respect, care about the truth, care about real issues, show any common sense.

For crying out loud::::: For 12 YEARS we tried "tax cuts will save the world"......

They didn't. Just the oppposite.

But what is their "new" proposal??

And we have to sit here and listen to lectures from the people who started the wars, put them on the credit card, bailed out the banks, stalled hearings on 9/11.......listen to them lecture us on this rotten Obama.


They don't deal in honesty, nor integrity, nor kindess of heart.

They can own it, or stay in their pretend make-believe world.

"MARCH 12–An Illinois man arrested yesterday for threatening Barack Obama’s life allegedly used the White House’s comment line to transmit a warning that he was preparing to shoot the president, according to court records.

Secret Service agents allege that Louis Kinderman, 29, logged onto the White House web site late last month and used a “Contact Us” feature to claim that, “I am going to kill Obama and no one I repeat no one is going to stop me!!” He added, “The time has come. The government can go f***themselves starting with Obama."

Finally found the word for it.....few weeks ago.

3. The Stochastic Terrorist

Aside from calling for a violent revolution, but not in those words, Alex Jones is without a doubt the greatest stochastic terrorist alive today. Stochastic terrorism is the use of mass communication (e.g. radio, television, movies, videos and the internet) to stir up random lone wolves to carry out violent acts of terrorism that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable (see below). Examples of Jones’ stochastic terrorism are all over the internet, but a small sample was taken from his radio broadcast of February 10, 2012, whereby Jones states “We are at the crossroads!”, “Time to get aggressive”, “It is on!”, and “There is no choice, you gotta fight them!”.

"And so it’s now sinking in that: 1) Republicans are not getting the entitlement cuts they want without agreeing to new revenues; and 2) Republicans are explicitly confirming that there is no compromise that is acceptable to them to get the cuts they themselves say they want. The GOP position, with no exaggeration, is that the only way Republican leaders will ever agree to paying down the deficit they say is a threat to American civilization is 100 percent their way; they are not willing to concede anything at all to reach any deal involving new revenues to reduce the deficit, or to get the entitlement reform they want, or to avert sequestration they themselves said will gut the military and tank the economy.

But … but … but … Obama needs to lead and prove he’s Serious by offering still more entitlement cuts than he already has!

"So the real point isn't that we can't afford Social Security and Medicare. It's that some people don't want to pay the higher taxes necessary to maintain Social Security and Medicare. This is a question of distribution, pure and simple.

When people say that we can't afford our entitlement programs, they're really saying that rich people won't pay the taxes necessary to sustain our entitlement programs. To be fair, many rich people probably would be willing to pay higher taxes if they knew the facts. But a small number of extremely rich people have successfully spread the myth that we can't afford our entitlement programs."

"President Obama: "Today I’m expanding on a proposal I made in the State of the Union. I’m calling it 'A Partnership to Rebuild America.' It’s a partnership with the private sector that creates jobs upgrading what our businesses need most: modern ports to move our goods, modern pipelines to withstand a storm, modern schools worthy of our children. Miami-Dade, my main message is: Let’s get this done. Let’s rebuild this country we love. Let’s make sure we’re staying on the cutting edge."

Obama’s plan calls for spending $21 billion on new municipal bonds, loans for infrastructure projects, and the creation of an infrastructure bank. The White House says the plan would not add to the deficit, meaning it would likely rely at least in part on private funding. The latest report card from the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the state of U.S. infrastructure a grade of D+.

Republicans should reimburse taxpayers for the cost of one-party House Benghazi 'report'

By Brent Budowsky--04/24/13 01:40 PM ET

The latest attempt by House Republicans to exploit the death of Americans at Benghazi, a one-party congressional report, cost money at a time of high deficits.

Because the report was so partisan and political and did not even offer a pretense of bipartisanship, Republicans should reimburse taxpayers for the cost of this partisan waste of their money.

Suppose a small group of extremely wealthy people sought to systematically destroy the U.S. government by (1) finding and bankrolling new candidates pledged to shrinking and dismembering it; (2) intimidating or bribing many current senators and representatives to block all proposed legislation, prevent the appointment of presidential nominees, eliminate funds to implement and enforce laws, and threaten to default on the nation’s debt; (3) taking over state governments in order to redistrict, gerrymander, require voter IDs, purge voter rolls, and otherwise suppress the votes of the majority in federal elections; (4) running a vast PR campaign designed to convince the American public of certain big lies, such as climate change is a hoax, and (5) buying up the media so the public cannot know the truth.

Because after the feds ruled that you can't refuse to marry black and white couples, Alabammy put a clause in their state that says they can just refuse to marry know, like Miss "marriage is sacred, that's why I did it 4 times" Davis did. So, since they don't want to marry gay couples, they aren't marrying anyone.

Was riding home the other day, and heard on radio:

A business here in Mass sued the state because of eminent domain. When gvt built the fly-over (new highway onto the Cape), they took some of this family's they were going to use as new business. The fly-over also blocked customers from this family business with the new road design.

Family sued, and won 4 mil.

State repealed, and won the repeal.

Family sued again: won 5 mil this time!

Know who the gvr was during this time? Mitt Romney. The fly-over was his pride and joy.

I have to admit, I love it.....but the people whose town was decimated don't.

So--next time you want to speak about gvt intrusion, power, tyranny against the little guy: here's an example for you.

the people picked Barack Obama. what happened there??

the peoples voice was nullified by Congress. Republicans don't care what the people want. they want what they want ... that's all that matters to them.

this is no democracy. they spit on us. we want background checks, no assault rifles that can kill 50 people in 2 minutes!

we want universal healthcare. we want an affordable life.

get out of here. the people decide nothing. republican big shots do.

now it's a hard on for Hillary committing perjury.....just like her husband isn't it? meanwhile, the blowhard calling for it is jason chaffetts. you rember him. he LIED and committed FRAUD as chairman on the planned parenthood hearing committee: another example of our money, our peoples business spent on puritanicals religious persecution. Remember? he introduced a document which he said came from pp, but was actually from an anti abortion group.

can we investigate that? can we investigate Trump raping a 13 yr old girl?

no, we can't. because this isn't a democracy. it's a playground for rich Republican puritanicals.

rape, she's bleeding from wherever, look at that face.....

that's the one thing Fiorina got right. all women know exactly what you mean Dumpy.

now keep raping, keep ripping people off, keep avoiding paying taxes while the rest of us support you.

you will never face investigation by gvt or media. because we all know who runs this place.

and looky's not who the right wingers say it is. cause if it was, Trump would be facing harrassment, not hillary.

Trump is the golden boy. did you know he will make a profit from running?

and if you think that was a sheriff's star, you really are stupid.
