I am been told many times that I spend too much time reading and observing the Washington political scene and eventually I will turn into raving manic. And to that I say, forget the eventually.
There are times that I have thought of packing my bags and moving to a deserted island in the South Pacific and live my life out with peace and tranquility because that is how disgusted with the B.S. that comes out of Washington. But then when I walk away from this computer for a while and calm down I come back to my senses I realize running away is not the answer.
I do believe 90% of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking honest people. It is the other lousy 10% we elected to high office.
The word “poli” comes from a Latin word meaning many; and “tics” meaning bloodsucking creatures. Need I say more?
At this time in our history we have more “tics” in Washington than we need and way too many “poli’s”. And there is definitely a shortage good hardworking people who serve with the best interest and welfare of the country in mind. I hate to paint all 435 members of Congress, and this includes both sides of the aisle with a broad brush but most them could not pass the Patriotism test of doing what is right for the country as versus their own personal agenda. And when you add in Obama and all the lapdogs in his administration, one can only conclude Washington is so infested with “tics” that it will take an army of exterminators to clean the place up.
Now we all know that lying and deceit is part of the political makeup of a politician and the sad part is the public has accepted this as standard operating procedure from Washington and too easily dismisses it as the Washington way. Once you accept this as a premise for a way of doing business than there is no end to ‘whopperville.’
Is it any wonder in the latest Rasmussen poll says: Fifty-six percent (56%) say it would be better if most incumbents were defeated and only 16% approve of reelection.
Now I tell you what set me off on this rant, in just a matter of a few days last week the American public was inundated with more lies and B.S. from this government than one can handle in an average government lying year.
“TIC” No.1 Obama’s Energy Policy
A couple of weeks ago, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told Congress that oil production in the Gulf of Mexico “remained at an all-time high, and we expect that it will continue as we bring new production online.” He claimed: “In 2009 there were 116 rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, in 2010 in February, 120, in February 2011, 126.”
But Salazar’s numbers distort the true number of working rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. According to Baker Hughes:
•Four days before the Deepwater Horizon accident there were 55 rotary rigs actually drilling offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
•On May 28, 2010, when the administration announced the six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling, there were 46 rotary rigs operating in the Gulf.
•Last week, 25 rotary rigs were operating in the Gulf of Mexico.
SideBear: A total distortion of the truth!
Secretary Ken Salazar issued a report (download here) stating that more than half of onshore oil and gas leases on federal lands in Colorado and elsewhere have not yet been developed by lease holders — a finding hotly challenged by energy-industry groups and their supporters.
SideBear: It also means less money for the federal government. With production in the Gulf of Mexico expected to drop this year by 220,000 barrels per day, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, that equals about $3.7 million in lost revenue each day (based on the $90/barrel oil and the royalty rate of 18.75 percent).
Further, since there is a lag time from the time an exploration permit is approved to the time of actual production, and since no only a handful of permits for new wells have been granted since April of 2010, it is likely that Gulf of Mexico production will continue to be hit hard in 2012 and beyond.
“TIC” No. 2 –
Harry Reid, the Senate’s most powerful Democrat, held a rally telling seniors that Social Security doesn’t need fixing. But he’s dead wrong!
This pompous ass is either the dumbest bastard walking around in Washington or one of the most deceitful people there. Everyone with at least a half of a brain knows that Entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are on the verge of bankruptcy and are driving our country off a financial cliff.
Somewhere in an warehouse in the Washington area there is a room full of file cabinets containing $2.5 trillion dollars of United States government I.O.U’s that OUR government stole from the Social Security Trust Fund. These are absolutely worthless pieces of paper and the only way they can be cashed-in is for the American Taxpayers’ to pony up another $2.5 trillion dollars.
The original $2.5 trillion dollars is the payroll contributions made by mandated government deductions from workers paychecks for decades. This money has been STOLEN from the people and has been pissed away by an irresponsible government living high on the hog.
To deceive the American People like ‘jackass’ Reid is attempting to do displays how conniving and deceitful these disgusting people are. Reid epitomizes how politics trumps all else at the expense of the welfare of the country.
Reid’s statements are irresponsible and dangerous and he lacks the political courage to reform entitlements, so he’s decided to kick the can down the road and risk these programs collapsing altogether.
“TIC” No. 3 – And then there is Senator Up-Chuck who is a ‘tic’ of the lowest common denominator who resides at the bottom of the barrel with the parasites who said:
“I always use the word ‘extreme’. That’s what the caucus instructed me to do the other week, extreme cuts and all these riders.” – Sen. Chuck Schumer
No one should be surprised at this comment because lying and distortions have been a part of the ‘jackasses’ playbook since the time when they read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” But somehow when you hear their standard M.O. procedure you have to wonder Is there not one Patriot left in Washington?
The idea that the third most powerful Senator in the Democratic caucus would like to take this country down for his own edifice is disgusting and beyond reproach. It is people like Senator “tic” who has lived on the publics’ dole for his entire life with his extreme views who give a new meaning to traitor and treason who should be sent into exile for his disservice to the American People.
My Final Comment – These are just three examples in an average week of Washington’s B.S. and if I continued on I would end writing another 700 page edition of War and peace.
Our whole system of government is based on fuzzy math to deceive the public, for if the truth where known the hangmen’s noose would be worn out. The country long term obligations to entitlements is a staggering amount in excess of $75 trillion dollars, but yet when we speak of budget cuts of $10 or $20 million dollars the B.S.s’ scream and holler ‘extreme cuts’.
This is nothing more than feeding pabulum to the moron set, to get their votes and stay in power, for power and greed is what is all about and to hell with the country.
“Government is not the solution, Government is the problem.”
