KarmicDisaster: Republicans are just like wife-beaters. "She should not have made me so mad. If she had done what I wanted I would not have had to hit her. It's all her fault, why can't she do what I want?" See, it is all the Democrat's fault, they are forcing the shutdown, the Republicans are being Forced to destroy the country because they didn't get what they wanted.


This is a great metaphor

The Dems could propose something that would make them all rich beyond the dreams of avarice, and they would still say NO just because a Dem proposed it. That's a NO robot, or a NObot.

this may be the greatest case of projection i've ever seen on fark.

cman: Its even got me to tone down on my "both sides are bad" spiel.


Oh I know.  I'm an independent centrist.  Historically, both sides have been just absolutely terrible, but this is just a whole new level of bullshiat and the Republicans have been entirely to blame for it.

parasol: I C Weener:
Or, we could not pay other obligations to pay those.  That is a good idea.  We don't need any more drones, or stealth fighters right now.  We don't even need a lot of the stuff that passes as welfare.   But we sure don't need to raise the debt ceiling again to continue the cycle of spend spend spend.

What incentive is there to stop spending if the government will just increase its limit everytime?  None.

If the GOP were REALLY interested in cutting spending the time to have that talk isn't 12 hours before deadline.
If the GOP were REALLY interested in cutting spending they would have seen Ryan's budget proposal as the unworkable farce it really was.

The time to look at your PAST DUE bills and your expected future bills isn't when the Marshals are evicting you from your home.

This is not about cutting costs - this is about the ACA and killing it before it learns to walk


But you tried and failed to kill the ACA. That ship has sailed. The GOP will not win this fight, and will only give Dems more ammo for 2014. It will be an impressive swan song for Obama when he has control of congress again.

I C Weener: I'd much rather they cut the crap out of the budget, but if this is the only way to do it...maybe.

failing to fund the government - which is "due" by tonight - is not going to cut ANY crap out of the budget - that is what you do when you WRITE a budget.

failing to increase the debt limit - which is "due" in a few weeks - will not cut ANY crap out of the budget either - what it WILL do is ruin our credit - and, if you plan to invest in any previous stable vehicles such as Treasury Bills start laying in cat food for your golden years, just in case.
 
2013-09-30 11:24:03 AM  

FlashHarry: I_C_Weener: What incentive is there to stop spending if the government will just increase its limit everytime?  None.

btw, it's clear that you and a great number of your ilk do not understand what the debt ceiling really is, so here's a primer:

The United States debt ceiling or debt limit is a legislative restriction on the amount of national debt that can be issued by the Treasury. Because expenditures are authorized by separate legislation, the debt ceiling does not actually restrict deficits. In effect, it can only restrain the Treasury from paying for expenditures that have already been incurred.(emphasis mine)

we can certainly discuss spending priorities. but not paying our bills is not an option.


Our spending never goes down.  The only tool available to stop it at this point is playing chicken.

Right, republicans want to control spending. That's why they blew up the budget surplus the first chance they got.


There was no surplus.  That is a myth.  It was simply Clintonian accounting smoke and mirrors.
 
2013-09-30 11:25:40 AM  
To think all this could have been avoided with sane taxation policy, an educated electorate and honest government.

Ok, yeah, I realize how much of a pipe dream that was after typing it out.

antidisestablishmentarianism: Yeah but remember, Bush wasn't a real fiscal conservative like every republican is now.


In all fairness, every Republican in US history up until 5-10 years ago isn't really like every republican now.  That party has swung so far to the extreme that even it's heroes like Reagan wouldn't recognize it.
 
2013-09-30 11:27:17 AM  
I wonder how many republicans in Congress have taken short positions on many financial stocks and will shortly be making shiat-tons of money when they shut down the government.

We went to war.  That is a little different than spending money on pork.  Also, since we cut and ran from Iraq it is being overrun by al qaeda again, who is re-strengthening.  We saved money by getting out of Iraq ... until we get terrorized by Al Qaeda of Iraq.

no, it's the one where you threadshiat and leave, like you always do.

but just in case you're interested:

• the GOP is threatening to let america default on its debt obligations if its political demands aren't met.
• this will cause massive harm to the US and global economies.
• by definition, this is terrorism.

so, yes, i suppose you're right.


We heard the same fear mongering about the Sequester.  then, during the heart of the sequester, the Dow Jones and S&P hit all-time record highs for about 13 or 14 straight days.  And several more all time record highs in the following month or two.  They hit new all time record highs about a week and a half ago.  No one buys this garbage anymore.  You have cried wolf too many times now.

I_C_Weener: The only tool available to stop it at this point is playing chicken.


this is correct

congress is enumerated with both the borrowing power and the spending power so the only possible way to reduce the amount of borrowing is to play chicken with the executive who has no enumerated power to change either of them and risk putting the country into a constitutional crisis that could cause significant financial ruin

i mean it is so simple dems why do you not get this

also you dems may be thinking 'playing chicken' like two opposing vehicles approaching each other as a metaphor for a test of will but of course chicken is actually played by tying one person to a track (in this case america) and demanding another person explain what's in it for you to try to convince you to hit the brakes

look it up, libs

Because neither side worked it out before this.  They tried the sequester.  It didn't work...though it wasn't the disaster one side pretended it would be.

Well, first and foremost, we're on our way towards a deficit reduction.

But you also have to consider that this is the obvious result of a representative form of government. As the population grows, so must representation and supporting staff.

But also consider this: a large government isn't inherently bad. A small government isn't inherently good. Instead of focusing on size - we should be focusing on efficacy.

defaulting on the debt, however, is different. it won't just harm the economy, it runs the risk of decimating the economy. just flirting with it in 2011 caused our credit rating to be downgraded and billions of dollars to disappear from the markets.

do you think that destroying the economy is a good idea?

If the government shuts down I hope the Dems are smart enough to submit a one page bill EVERY DAY (or more frequently if possible) that simply states that the government will be funded for the next few months (or year).  In other words a bill that does nothing more than stop the shutdown.

Then I will pray the Republicans will do what is right for the US people and the economy...instead of just watching the place burn and laughing.

skip meals to save money for food

No, it's not skipping a meal to save money on food.  It's eating the meal, then skipping out on the check.

If you don't have the money in the first place, don't eat the food.
