My 9 year old nephew asked for an Xbox 360 with a Kinnect and about a dozen games, including the latest Call of Duty. On Christmas morning he opened his Xbox 360 with a Kinnect and a bunch of games. He did not get the Call of Duty game because he's nine. He then picked the Xbox up over his head and smashed it into thousands of pieces on the tile floor while screaming about lack of compromise and socialism.

It was a proud moment for the family of patriotic Tea Party patriots.

You Obama fellating libtards make me sick.

Despite the fact that the current situation is a direct result of Republican policies and the teabaggers' pathological need to see Fartbong0 fail, you continue to try to blame the GOP.

Xetal: We're blaming the Republicans because they're the ones at fault. They forced the creation of the "fiscal cliff", they caused us to lose a notch of credit rating for the first time, they're been doing everything they can to make this recovery as slow as possible, now they refused to negotiate something less severe for Jan 1.

We're blaming you because you are to blame, Republicans.



But, Moooooooooom, the president is still presidenting while not being a white Republican from an old-money family.

Great. You just made Boehner cry. I hope it makes you feel like a big man to pick on such a sensitive, precious flower.

o5iiawah: jayhawk88: Good, you worthless sacks of shiat. You chose to try and use the worst financial crisis in a generation solely for political gain, while the people you supposedly serve, suffered. Bad enough when you all are simply incompetent or selling your services to the highest bidder, but to actively try and make things worse, just to make the sitting President look bad, is evil and unforgivable. You all deserve to lose everything in your life that gives you any kind of financial security, I hope each and every one of you finds yourself alone and desperate on the streets.

Boehner already agreed to most of the tax increases Obama has asked for. Obama meanwhile hasn't offered a penny of spending cuts - just reductions in a proposed rate of increase. Instead of a 9Tn deficit over the next 10 years, we'd be faced with a 7.4Tn deficit over the next 10 years. New revenue, meanwhile makes up maybe a trillion or two more but Obama's still asked for half a Trillion in public works stimulus. Also, keep in mind we're going to be back here in 10 years saying that the interest in the debt has swallowed any gains that these cliff negotiations had achieved. One party is sort of serious about new revenue. The other party doesn't give a shiat about spending.

If I vow to cut 10,000 worth of spending out of my budget next year, I dont do so by purchasing a $150,000 Ferrari instead of a $160,000 Lamborghini

"Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend [the U.S. budget is] a household budget..."

This is a sure sign the person speaking is an uninformed moran.


America is just like a household; where you give one child 3 sandwiches, another child 1 sandwich, cut a sandwich in half and give it to your two other children, and the youngest gets nothing

If you have children, the child credit goes away. It was part of the Bush tax plan that the democrats in the Senate refuse to extend

Good. We are overpopulated. It's time for the government to stop subsidizing child rearing. Make people confront the full cost of raising a kid, so more will choose to have zero or one instead of three or four. You could lower marginal rates to compensate, but I'm sick of paying taxes to raise other people's contributions to global warming and unemployment.

I agree with the sentiment of 'too many kids', but we're not overpopulated. A few cities might have some congestion, but the nation itself is far from overpopulated.

What is 8% unemployment, other than 8% too many workers? There's more to overpopulation than traffic congestion. The ideal population is one where every person is necessary. Not to mention that when you take into account that approximately 10% of all workers are unnecessary, either working corporate jobs they got due to nepotism or government jobs that were made up for the sole purpose of disguising unemployment, the real figure is something like 15% too many workers. Plus, with automation replacing more and more sectors, it's going to get even worse. Soon you will buy clothes with RFID chips in the tags that automatically debit your bank account when you walk out with them. The nation's 10 million retail employees will get dumped onto the dole. This doesn't mean that they are horrible or lazy. Most of them want to work, but there are too many workers for the future economy.

I'm sure you have a solution to this problem? I'm wagering a 'final' one, perhaps?

Because that is the only way we would deal with your specious overpopulation argument. The only decision would be who would be 'dealt with'.


That one's easy. Start with all nonhumans. All humans have two X chromosomes, so disposing of those who don't is a good thing.

It's totally unfair! You spend four solid years negotiating in bad faith, filibustering for the sake of filibustering, even filibustering your own goddamn bills, and doing everything in your power to prevent meaningful legislation from passing...

Then when you fail to pass a bill to prevent a tax increase, everyone acts like it's all your fault!

I bet the Jews/the liberal media/Obama did this!

Email him and tell him the good news: There are ten times as much budget cuts as in his example. He should be ecstatic.

Then, tell him that any retard that assumes simply cutting spending is a solution without getting a second job with more revenue is delusional.

Then, tell him that anyone that tries to compare micro and macro economics is a goddamn idiot because there is nothing about governmental economics that makes sense when comparing it to the "kitchen table".

Then, tell him that he is sending you emails over a system that was cultivated and built with large scale help from the government.

Then, delete the email and set up a spam filter to send any future emails from him to the trash.

Ugh. I saw that on Facebook, and it's so I dunno, symbolic of the tea partiers.

They like to condense complex social/economic governmental duties into caveman, brut like talk. Me no likey gubment.

I guess it's working, we do have the least productive Congress right now, that's what they were elected to do.

DamnYankees: lexslamman: All because the mainline GOP is too cowardly to stand up to the conservative minority in their party.

Since when are conservatives a minority of the GOP?


I think you've put your finger on it.  The modern state of the GOP is:

1) A large majority of them put themselves into the "severely conservative" camp, into the "gubbmint too big" camp, into the "must slash spending" camp, into the "income tax is EVIL" camp.

2) A majority even of Republicans want taxes on the top 1% to go up.

This has kept the party stuck in an infinite loop.  There is no resolution of these wildly-contradictory positions.

Thanks to gerrymandering, virtually all those repub Congressional seats are secure. Sure they've lost the White House for the forseeable future, but their personal jobs are safe. So why compromise? The American people will suffer, but the American people deserves to suffer. You had the gall to reelect the black guy for four more years? This'll teach you, slaves! Incredibly their personal constituents, who will suffer along with the rest of us and maybe more so, will support them in this victory of ideology over common sense. Go figure.
