Speaker Boo Hoo should do absolutely nothing.
Over on Twitter there is a trending hashtag... #LetTheTaxCutsExpire
The dingbat libs who started appear to be unaware that Bush cut taxes for everyone.
They really do think he only cut them for billionaires and zillionairs. LOL!
They can’t be told....they need to live it.
I’m stocking up as well. It’s the only thing I can control.
A part of me would like to see Boehner hold a press conference announcing that the House will support the Presidents agenda but make it clear that the republicans disagree with his policies, but will let the American people witness first hand what Socialism will do to our economy in short order. I would like to see him finish by pointing to a phone number for all Americans write down and call when they have had enough of the Socialist utopia and return to what our founders so eloquently spelled out fo0r this great Nation
why work when you are getting punished for it....
whatever happened to being rewarded for working hard?
I want to a look into his eyes and ask "how could you do this to your kids?"
I guess they need to save face....but I'd rather see the cuts happen right across the board...
That is how I feel right now. Crash the entire system and maybe someday it can be fixed.
Ask a liberal to fill in the blank to this:
When the rich get poorer, the poor get ________ .
‘Sequestration & Obama’, repeat endlessly. OWN IT.
America may have to lose a decade to gain a century.
When you were a toddler you did stupid things that caused painful physical injuries like most people did. That’s how we learn .
Sometimes bad things happen are good for us to understand their bad.
Lack I’d a decent income and doing remedial jobs beneath your level of intelligence give you time to think about what’s really important .
Sometimes people don’t learn lessons. That happens to.
What will happen it that we will get defense cuts, but the social spending cuts will never materialize.
I don’t think I would feel any schadenfreude from letting it all burn, but I also think that it is impossible to make people understand the looming disaster unless they feel the pain.
Dems use Republicans to kick the can down the road over and over, therefore just keeping us above the collapse enough to keep it going.
People are indoctrinated. They won’t see the folly until they have to live with it’s consequences.
Called “learnin’ the hard way”.
When the rich get poorer, the poor get ________ .
The House needs to pass a bill making all the tax cuts permanent. If Reid and Obama kill it, then make them wear it when taxes are increased on everyone.
Just buy all the ammo and food you can get.
Any deal should include permanently and immediately rescinding all Obamacare waivers. Everybody pays.
We have 3 grown children. One Big Lefty, One Conservative and One who has finally seen the light in the past four years - only as a result of the efforts of her wonderful, conservative husband. After our day of mourning on Wed, last night Hubby and I were discussing our options and plans for moving forward. The kids know our position, and so do our grandchildren. We had specifically talked about the election and what it meant for their futures - in fact one 5-yr old grandchild asked the Lefty why Barack Obama wanted to take more of their money?
We are going to do our homework re where we spend our dollars. No purchases of anything made in China - no matter how "inexpensive". I'm going to scour the Internet re any public statements or Corporate policies that I find objectionable - no money to them either. That goes for our favorite restaurants too. If the owners are Lefties, our disposable income (what will be left of it) can go elsewhere. No movies - family time is better spent in conversation and reading, we might even bring out the Monopoly Board. Making our charitable dollars go to those in our community in need - through our church. Working on trying to be a good Christian by volunteering more time in our community - If we can each show one person what the love is Christ is all about, that is a good thing.
Two additional, specific things.
1) We were looking for a small condo in the city where our three children's families live. I sent the realtor a note last night. "Based on the results of the presidential election, we are not going to pursue a condo purchase. We strongly believe that the policies of the current administration are diametrically opposed to meaningful job creation and thus, any significant economic recovery is now unlikely. Being retired, that means being squeezed by prospects for less investment income, higher taxes and rising prices for EVERYTHING. A condo is no longer part of the plan."
2) The wills are being changed. What little will be left of the Lefty's share will skip him and go into a trust for his beautiful children. Perhaps we gave him too good of a life growing up. He never knew hardship. It is so easy to go gaga over Lefty drivel when you aren't worried about your future.
FReepers, please let me know if you have any suggestions for what else we can do. BTW, perhaps we can have a specific forum here on FR where we can specifically share ideas. Any "research" can be posted. Lastly, perhaps there is some way that can "unite" to push for Voter ID laws and get involved to make sure that voter lists can be cross-referenced for multiple registrations and what about the integrity of vote COUNTING?!?!?!
just my thoughts...
