I received an e-mail from one of my Senators trumpeting his column in the Washington Post about increasing the debt ceiling. It was from Senator Mark Warner (Idiot – VA). Essentially he’s making two points:
(1) Like most liberals (socialists, democrats, progressives, whatever) he says that it is inevitable that we must raise the debt ceiling. You see we are all supposed to bow to the inevitability and stop fighting this ruinous action proposed by the morons that got us here. This is the way these fascists speak – everyone agrees, all economists say, the science is settled, bla. bla, bla, bla. Horsepuckey.
(2) According to Mark we have to both raise revenue and cut spending. For those of you that don’t live in the
Commonwealth of Virginia (I’m sorry for you – unless of course you live in ) you haven’t experienced the utter stupidity of Mark Warner. What he proposes is like trying to save your boat from sinking by taking a bucket of water from the bow of the boat and pouring it into the stern. If you cut spending it will have the effect of improving the economy but if you raise taxes it will retard the economy. That’s economics 101. Texas
It is time for all Republicans to tell every one of these economically illiterate Democrats that we have been trying it their way since 2007 – it has broken the back of our economy. Their way doesn’t work. Democrats have proved it yet again. Woodrow Wilson (D), Franklin Delano Roosevelt (D), Lyndon Baines Johnson (D), Jimmy Carter (D), and Barack Obama (D) have all validated that Democrats don’t know jack about running a country, a government, or an economy. I didn’t include John Fitzgerald Kennedy (D) because it was he who said “a rising tide lifts all boats” and he CUT TAXES. I also didn’t include William Jefferson Clinton (D) because he did not have control of the government (or his libido) and he has no deeply held principles or convictions so he pretty much rolled with the punches.
And the crowning achievement? More “unexpected” bad economic news today. The unemployment rate edged up again. Senator Warner is part of that problem too.
