  •  President Obama is on a roll with his calling out (6+ / 0-)

    of the ridiculous Republican disaster plan for America.  The wingers I work with are in absolute whine mode over the fact that he's had the nerve to call their lies....  basically lies.

    The fact that the right wing has been shown to have no clothes, which in itself is a scary thought, is not lost on the American people.  Mr. 47% did this country a favor by finally stating what the 1% really believes about the remaining Americans that are, in general, working their asses off in many instances JUST TRYING to find a damn JOB!

    Sequester?  If you feel you must, teabaggy Congress person...  please proceed

    Someone once asked me why do you always insist on taking the hard road? and I replied why do you assume I see two roads?

      "After all, as we learned in the 1990s, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good, middle-class jobs. That has to be our driving focus. That has to be our North Star. Making America a magnet for good jobs."

      He just needs to eliminate any reference to deficit reduction UNTIL we have full economic growth. A strong economy HAS to be a condition precedent to real deficit reduction.

        bit, here, today, in kosland, or click this little link, http://www.dailykos.com/... because guess what? Everyone who says 'the deficit is growing, the deficit is growing!' is, like, totally effing WRONG! and the whole bullshit exercise is just another case of the rich blowing smoke in our collective stupid Narrative-eating faces.

        Folks of a nice, liberal, progressive bent, maybe it is time to stop being, like, so "understanding" and, like, "tolerant" and you know, "nice," and get down and a little dirty in response to what's being done to us nice, try-to-keep-what-little-we-think-we-have, iGeneration DOPES.

        (And HOW many 'troops' and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan, again, for how long? How many new drone bases in which new countries, on which disorganized continents? And how many of you, of US, believe that the "sequester," by "cutting" the rate of growth, THE RATE OF GROWTH, of the Pentagram budget to "just" 2.4% a year, is "horribly endangering our national security"? )
