Obama The Hypocrite: I Won't Play Debt Ceiling Chicken

Senator Obama on the national debt in 2007:



Busted. The Deficit President speaks.

Senator Obama argued and voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006.

  • "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.  It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills.  It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.  Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.  Leadership means that the buck stops here.  Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.   America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Senator Barack Obama, March 2006

So here this morning there appears in the paper an article that sheds some detail into just how much our government is intruding into our lives. If there is in any way a mans ability to become self sufficient or to curtail the use of resources that pulls you off the grid, well, they just can't stand it. And yes, the state in which I reside is one of the states that are mentioned in this article. This gentleman. Gansler wants to run for gov for this small jewel that we call Maryland. http://m.washingtonpost.com/politics/seven-states-sue-epa-over-wood-fired-boilers/2013/10/09/f4ecf7b2-313a-11e3-89ae-16e186e117d8_story.html?wprss=rss_national

Website Offers Furloughed Employees Free Vibrators During Government Shutdown


The government shutdown might be killing the vibes of furloughed Federal employees, but one website hopes to change that. Vibrators.com, a website that bills itself as “the easiest way to find the perfect vibrator,” is offering its merchandise free of charge to any nonessential government workers.

“Are you a federal employee that has been deemed non-essential? Do you have a little too much time on your hands and nothing to do? Is the recent government shutdown to blame?” the company asks in an announcement on their website. “As vibrator enthusiasts, we want everyone to experience the pleasure that a nice vibrator can bring to partners and individuals. Besides, we know you have some free time, why not try something new?”

The company is right about one thing: According to the Washington Post, at least 450,000 federal employees remained on furlough Monday as the government shutdown entered its second week. In a rare move on Saturday, the House voted unanimously to approve back pay for furloughed employees once the shutdown ends.

But in the meantime -- while supplies last -- the company is offering eligible applicants a “free vibe,” which typically retails for $9.99, for as long as the government shutdown continues. Features include complimentary shipping conducted with the “utmost privacy and discretion.”

I believe this is debt ceiling chicken, Very soon the big show will be over, the ceiling raised, and both parties will get back to spending like a crack head chasing their next high.

That is a bizarre story skin, I wonder how he worked those "odd jobs" like the gas station without a S.S. number, or if he used his, why he did not blip on the radar as being alive when money started coming into the fund or taxes?

The pyramidal economics of masculine insecurity
is the economics of the mafia.

It's the billionaire replacing democracy with
privatization and the mouthpiece demonizing the

Because of this,


Scientists tested the DNA of 400 gay men.

They found that a region of the X chromosome called
'Xq28' had some impact on men's sexual behaviour.
If your Mom's that, you have her
gay gene.


the witchhunt community in-breeding the gay
family genetics within its own community,
the parent teaching his/her child to scapegoat
will also be a likelier passer of the gay
genetics (it's on the X chromosome, so though
the father may be a paranoid clown and/or
recognition/appreciation starved owing to
being raised in an environment that taught him
to only be afraid of being himself, the genetics
itself would have to pass from the mother.)

This is why those leading the "religious right"
who are invested in scapegoating gays are
themselves invariably proved being gay

This is why the murderer of the married guy with
children mistaken for gay invariably turns out being gay.

This is the controlling eye.
The people sold out to it are
the children denied love, and
they only know judging to control
to enslave, in their own world.

Judging exists at the expense of love.

Love and forgiveness are the path to
security personally and economically.

MORE TESTOSTERONE, is associated with
higher likelihood of being gay.


"A finger on sexuality"
No kids, more masculine, is why
gays served their communities in the
army in ancient times.


(Left handedness too--a family genetic.)

The above means gays otherwise occur
"normally," most likely generally so
as to take advantage of not having
kids and to use their GREATER masculinity
(also why hypersexual in some cases,)
and they are NOT the "less" masculine looking
sorts to serve as warriors.
