Describe one thing that Obama has done that has "Screwed you over". Not something you THINK he's done, or not something you are afraid will happen, one real life example.

I don't know about that. The deficit is as low as it has been in ages and the debt looks manageable. Hell, if we just shut the government down every year when we run out of funding, maybe, just maybe, we will actually raise taxes and cut discretionary spending to the point that we no longer have a deficit.

sprawl15: phenn: "Fark you, pay me" is a remark that is blooming with self-interest. Funny how people are dogpiling me for my own self-interest.

"Fark you, pay me for the work I do" is distinct from "Fark you, pay me for existing". The reason people are dogpiling is that you're equating the former with the latter solely because the employer is the government. You feel 'entitled' to the money you earn through your labor, yet criticize them for the money they feel they're 'entitled' to through their labor.


So, an impasse?

There is a slight difference not to be missed. People who work for the government are paid by taxpayers who have no say in how much is paid or anything else. If I do a crap job, I don't get paid. If I cannot find project work, I don't get paid. That is on me. No one is being forced to pay me. Unlike him.

As Obamacare is slowly forced down the American people's throats, Republicans are keeping an open mind about ways to prevent the bungled, anti-Freedom legislation from destroying our Great Nation.

Who the hell is BOB?


He's never come out and explained this BOB thing.   *shrugs*    I think it's meant to demonize our President, but I don't get it.   I say we just point and laugh at him.   It's up to him to explain this new meme he keeps pushing.

Nope, sorry, you've agreed (by virtue of staying here) to live in a country where you pay some of the fruits of your labor to the government, who in turn provide you with police, military, infrastructure, water that won't kill you if you drink it, fairly well inspected meat, scientific advancements that wouldn't otherwise be researched because they are not *immediately* profitable, a legal system, a system that allows redress if you are wronged *other* than trying to outgun the other person, etc.

clambam: "Paul said Republicans still expect members to fight the law, which national polls show only about a third of Americans support. "

They keep repeating this but I really find it hard to believe. Obama ran on a platform of health care reform and was elected. Then he ran on a platform of implementing the ACA, and he was re-elected. What part of "elected to reform health care and re-elected to implement health care reform" do these people not understand? The national polls in question must be framing the question in terms of "If you knew that Obamacare would murder your grandmother, would you still support it?"


"Would you support Emperor Stalin von Deathhitler invading the United States and setting up a military junta if it was necessary under Obamacare?"

Shadowknight: TheMysticS: We've experienced that same feeling...most recently after arriving home after a trip to Scotland, but the worst time was coming back from Japan.

And yet the dickhole guy at the border crossing into Montana, with a million and one questions, etc.got us feeling all happy after he handed us our papers back and smiled (for the first time I the whole exchange) and said
'welcome home.'

CSB time!

Last time I had to fly commercial in and out of the States was when my dad passed last May.  I kind of left in a hurry (understandably) and didn't empty out my wallet.  As I live in Southern Spain, I have Euro and Gibraltar Pound Sterling in my wallet, in addition to the American currency I use on base.  So I flew from Madrid into Chicago.  I got stopped in Chicago O'Hare on my way into Detroit because the back-scatter machine apparently decided that my wallet looked suspicious.

So, the guy asked to see it, which I was a little leery about, but figured if I wanted to make my flight I'd just have to do it.  He opened it up, and then looks at me with an upturned eyebrow.  

TSA: "Why do you have three kinds of currency in here?"

Naturally, I'm not in the greatest mood (my dad was dying, after all) and told him where I lived, and why I used three kinds of money.  

TSA: "I don't see why you need three kinds.  Europe uses the Euro."

Me: "Yes, but the British Isles, and it's territories like Gibraltar, use the Pound."

TSA: "....I have to talk to my supervisor."

So, he left and came back from behind a screen with a sour looking gentleman with a John Bolton mustache, which instantly made me hate him.  HE asked me why I had three kinds of currency.  I sarcastically told them "You caught me.  I'm actually Jason Borne.  I just really let myself go and got really fat.  Part of my disguise."

TSA Supervisor:  "Sir, joking about terrorism is grounds for arrest.  Don't do that."

Me: "But I wasn't jokin....  You know what, I'm sorry."

After explaining it to this guy, he finally let me pass just in time to make the run to my connection gate.  

/REALLY dislike the TSA

hubiestubert: This is what happens when you send faux-ideologues to Congress, as opposed to competent legislators.

I get it. Folks are upset that the Libbiest Libs Who Ever Libbed a Lib have seats, and a President who speaks softly and lets you hit yourselves with your own stick, but at some point, maybe folks might want to STOP giving them ammunition to dun you with. Especially when the plan you oppose so much, was the pretty much the plan that you put forward a few years ago, and your Presidential nominee actually signed into law already.

I am NOT a fan of the ACA. It is a giveaway to the insurance industry, though less of one that Romney put forward in Mass--and perhaps THAT is the real feature that folks who are leading this "fight" have: it doesn't just give huge amounts of government cash directly to the middlemen to dole out at their leisure and a huge opportunities to turn that cash into interest elsewhere. It is still an awfully big giveaway that we might better use by not shuffling it between bank to bank to bank, and maybe actually see it in circulation. That was the modification that got it to pass though, and it still offers a better course than: hope y'all don't get sick and die. There's still a lot to do: mental health care in the nation has been gutted, jobs are still sparse, and the current model for "growth" apparently is more of the same house of cards shuffling and an assisted market model that only benefits a few, as opposed to opening up markets for real competition. For folks who claim that they want to see a free market, they are digging their heels in damn hard to prevent real competition and actual entrepreneurs to enter said markets. Coupled with a damning "law and order" mentality that shackles local, state, and the Fed to wasting millions upon untold millions on keeping a dollars flowing to private prisons, attorneys, and a seizure plan that allows looting of the public coffers and skimming directly from human misery, and we have some issues still to deal with at home, and yet, folks seem bent on getting us involved in every conflict across the globe, and then cry and wail when someone suggests something that WON'T get a lot of folks killed, and wail when the President might actually take a firm line. Then again, it does go back to the idea that mental health care is in serious jeopardy in this nation, and sadly, more than a few of our legislators, despite being well covered at this point for such care, they won't avail themselves to it, and their families are loathe to get them committed to save not just themselves, but the nation that they imperil....

I was promised by fox news dot com that the sequester was actually going to be good for the country because...well, I don't think they gave a reason, I think they just pointed out that Obama didn't want it so it had to be good, but yeah. That's good enough for me and mine.

Obama didn't want the sequester?

It was his idea, of course he wanted it.

I'm told on Fark by FarkLibs at least five times a day that Barack "BOBby Fisher" Obama plays 4th dimension chess. He new the sequester was bad, and new Dim's wouldn't be n'sync with R's on a deal. It stands to reason that new kids on the block of the TeaPartyPatriots wouldn't extend the debt ceiling again, as America shouldn't, but Obama new they wouldn't.

When all that happens there is only one direction to go he will institute martial sharia law and appoint himself King as America burns under 98 degrees heat next summer. At that point theres no turning back. Street boys in the new black panthers will run our local governments.

I don't know about that. The deficit is as low as it has been in ages and the debt looks manageable. Hell, if we just shut the government down every year when we run out of funding, maybe, just maybe, we will actually raise taxes and cut discretionary spending to the point that we no longer have a deficit.

Pop quiz. What is the largest catagory of discretionary spending we currently have on the books?
