DamnYankees: But, Ryan added, a crisis is "irrefutably" on its way.

Yes, because you are so reliable about what is and is not refutable.


Every two years, we see some new 'crisis' from republicans that proves that America is on it's last legs, and if they don't get elected, we'll dissolve into a thousand year darkness.  According to them, this country is so exceptional it can have one foot in the grave for decades and just keep on tickin'.

OgreMagi: Anyone who claims we can continue to go deeper into debt with no consequences has obviously not been paying attention to history or current world events.  Multiple countries in Europe believed they could spend forever and are now discovering how untrue that is.  Greece, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, etc.  They're all farked.

At the moment Germany is paying to keep the EU from completely falling apart, but they're starting to get annoyed at having to pay for everyone else's mistakes.  Trust me, you don't want to annoy the Germans.  That never ends well.

We're heading down the same road as the EU.


We're de-centralizing our currency and throwing the full weight of our economy behind nations that have been faltering for hundreds of years?

We should stop that.  Mexico can keep it's pesos or whatever.  I heard they used dollars in Canada, I hope they are their own dollars.  I'd hate to think they're using US dollars up in our hat.

MattStafford: A policy will eventually destroy the country. In your view, we should continue that policy because, hey, it was going to happen eventually.


The death of the sun is eventually going to destroy the world. WHY AREN'T WE SENDING ROCKETS TO THE SUN LIKE IN THAT MOVIE SUNSHINE WITH THAT DUDE FROM THAT OTHER MOVIE?!?

I would recommend a tax on legitimate rape. Logically, if you don't like something (like women getting raped), you tax it to reduce it. It would have to be a flat tax, because that's more fair and we can't have moochers in the system. I would also recommend that if the girl can provide a receipt proving she is now armed because of the rape, that she can deduct the cost of the new weapon from the tax, dollar for dollar.

There, I just balanced the budget AND appeased all three windowlicking parts of the Republican party. Let's have the House vote on it.

They must have forgotten to tell him he's not Vice-President, so he doesn't need to trot out "deficits don't matter" just yet.

Homer: Ha-ha...hi! Now Marge, you're going to hear a lot of crazy talk about Bart working in a burlesque house.

Darth_Lukecash: My fear is that any of this Paul Ryan bill gets any traction.

There is NO sound economical thought behind it.


That.......thing Paul Ryan authored isn't a budget plan. It's a litany of death threats.

Because they were trying to reignite a dying sun in that movie.

DamnYankees: trying to destroy the world with his mad sun-exploding schemes.

Bucky Katt: WTF?   GOPers have been screaming about out of control spending and the debt crisis so much that they've been wetting their pants for ages.  Do they even listen to themselves when they talk?




No after awhile they just tune out. Hey, does anybody remember big-league chew?

Eventually we're all dead. This is not a useful metric.

Do any of those countries possess the Reserve Currency? No.

Paul Ryan: "It's not as if we woke up the day after the election and said let's change our principles turn them in and throw in with government run healthcare"

More's the pity.

"Not a retread"? A "responsible balanced budget"?  A "Vision document"?

Repealing Obamacare, cutting taxes, cutting spending in the middle of a weak recovery?

[ohwaityou'reserious]

No debt crisis... yet?

When Ryan says that it sounds like a threat.

That must be why it's OK for his 'solution' to that problem to be balanced with revenues sourced with rosy unicorn farts and spending cuts supplied by reneging on every promise and deal made with seniors for the last fifty or sixty years.
