The Evidence: Who Wants To Ruin America?
June 27th, 2011
A recent study published in Psychological Science only convinced us further that the human body is both fearfully and wonderfully made beyond our wildest imaginations. According to the study, women who were ovulating were found to be far more sensitive to a male's sexual orientation than women who were not--and this just by gazing at the male's face. So, in other words, a woman who is at her peak in terms of the reproductive cycle has a built-in "gaydar" with impeccable sensitivity.
In fact, the study found that, as women drew closer and closer to the peak in their ovulation cycle, their sensitivity to a prospective partner's "orientation" increased in a linear fashion just as that same sensitivity decreased as they drew away from their peak cycle. Now, this obviously innate ability left us with a number of questions.
The first one being, if being gay is such a biologically splendid thing, then why has nature equipped females to be able to both detect and dutifully reject a potential mate with homosexual proclivities? The second question being, should women wait until their cycle is in full flame in order to select an interior decorator? Hmm...as a matter of fact, this X-Men type of ability could be subverted to all sorts of advantageous uses.
For instance--is there perhaps a way that we can alter and retrain this ability in women to detect a potential Politician's impetus to spend less as opposed to spending more, a veritable pay-dar, in effect? Or can we intensify this ability to the point that ovulating women can detect a candidate's true level of liberalness, a Left-ar perhaps? Or what if a woman who is ovulating could listen to a male's voice and discern truthiness, a biological dron-ar?
The possibilities are limitless in that the Tea Party could eventually train and deploy an entire battalion of rotating "Ovulation Corps" members who could use the power of their incredible eggs to literally change the world for the better, in addition to birthing future American debtors.
Liberally Assuring America's Decline: Cloward-Piven
But until then, and being without the latent benefits of ovulationary equipage, the ability to distinctively discern must rule the day for now, and in that vein my personal discern-dar klaxon has been tripped repeatedly as of late. It was Liberal Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin who essentially started the ball rolling, the Axis Press then dutifully joining in with what simply must be a new set of Journ-O-list talking points. In these talking points, the Senators actually attacked the Republicans for "sabotaging economic recovery." Ironic has to be your first thought since the Dems, along with the Axis press, have been cheerleading America's decline while cluelessly derailing the Phantom recovery for nearly three long years now. But the Liberal Senators went on to wail about the following:
- The GOP's efforts in limiting Obama to one term
- Playing political games
- Encouraging a weak economy in order to win an election
- Opposing infrastructure investment
- Opposing an extended temporary payroll tax-break
Now, like taking candy from a baby, let's scrutinize and debunk what the Liberal wing-nuts of the Senate had to say:
According to the Democrats, the Republicans are nutty for not wanting more time with Hurricane Obama
First, the Democratic Senators' complaining of the GOP's desire to limit Obama to one term is no less ridiculous an argument than the Republicans complaining that the Democrats want to keep Obama for one more term, which may assume much, at this juncture. Of course, the Republicans want to take over the Executive branch! The weakness of this particular argument only underscores how precariously the Democrats are positioned at present, along with their striking ability to continually talk down to the American people.
Democrats' Political Gameplan: Accuse the opposing party of planning political games
For the Democrats to accuse the GOP of playing political games is yet another trip down disingenuity lane. The Democrats have taken the art of political gamesmanship to a whole new level since the Mortal Messiah was elected. Remember, Speaker Pelosi rewrote the House rules to disallow the GOP any input into the political process on the first day. Despite achieving a heady majority in November, Republican Speaker Boehner largely changed those rules back to the more original format in order to once again allow minority party input for the opposing Democrats. Games indeed.
The Democratically weakened US economy has the Liberal's fingerprints all over it
For the Democrats to state that the GOP is encouraging a weak economy in order to gain from it is, once again, beyond silly when we note how hard the Republicans fought every job-killing Democratic move in the previous session. The Republican House is still outnumbered by the Democrats within the Senate and the Presidency. And let's face it, every Democratic idea has fallen to abject failure and simply cannot get up except for the President's continuation of the Bush Tax incentives, and that measure was insisted upon by the Republican House and Senate members. The goal was to breath life into a still morbidly sickened economy, and it worked at slowly lowering unemployment levels, at least for awhile. The Democrats now own the US economy lock, stock and barrel and even Democratic DNC Chief Debbie Wasserman-Scultz admitted this fact recently to the entire party's chagrin.
Falsely Stimulate us once, Shame on you....
When the Democrats state "we need another stimulus and the GOP is blocking us," look out. The last massive stimulus resulted in nothing more nor less than a Democratic slush fund which almost doubled the national debt, according to the CBO, while enabling State Government Union jobs, human capital, the anemic goals of green energy and crony capitalism. The one sector that needed stimulating the most, being small business, was pretty much left out in the cold. Further, it was Obama himself that yucked it up about his error by asserting from the start that shovel-ready was actually shovel-ready. The Republicans, while not falling for the phantom stimulus line the first time, will certainly not fall for it a second time when they actually have a vote in the matter. The US economy is mired in debt and more profligate spending will only worsen the problem.
A payroll tax holiday, or should that be payroll tax Festivas?
Finally, the Liberal Senators' accusation that the GOP is blocking a payroll tax holiday, which they had earlier approved, assumes that all things are still equal. They are not. In fact, the reduction of the payroll tax for employees downward from the overall total of 7.65% to 5.65% amounted to nothing more than a pin-prick reduction for employees, while costing the Social Security trust fund upwards of $ 100 billion dollars at a time when the fund is ostensibly insolvent. This could only deepen the range of destabilizing debt that the US is now under. The Democrats have proven themselves adept at mis-applying half-cocked measures that could help if done properly, but then retrying to double down on their first failure by applying a second faulty measure that costs the American people even more. Can you say "Cloward-Piven?"
If the Democrats really wanted to stimulate the economy and save the US hundreds of billions of dollars, their best bet would be to admit failure at a time of economic duress and totally repeal Obamacare altogether; the GOP would then have no choice but to get behind it. The economy, as a result, would likely reach flash-point and surge back into motion. thereby relieving America of its gathering cloud of economic malaise. This could also liven up Obama's re-election chances. But, as they say, live by the sword, die by the sword.
The Dems, despite a mountain of hardship, financial evidence and healthcare waivers, which clearly point to Obamacare as needing to be aborted, will gluttonously stand by their signature Statist achievement and ride its floundering corpse down into the murky depths of total defeat in 2012.
A Timeline of Failure: Ruining America One Deed At A Time
In fact, that Democrats have achieved remarkable results in taking a merely wounded economy and executing a series of bungled surgeries which left their patient struggling for life on the operating table. When the time came to clear the way for American industry to catch on fire in early 2009, the Obama administration and the legislative branches performed the equivalent of calling in the local Cloward-Piven Fire department who then dutifully doused the economy down with a flood of redistributionary extinguishment. So what did the Democrats achievement in ruin consist of? Here are but a few of the many as we recount the ways.
On 2/16/09 the nearly $ 800 billion stimulus act was passed in what was called a grand effort to restart the economy. We later learned that, in late 2008, none other than anti-American extraordinaire George Soros had recommended passage of a bill which was intended primarily to stabilize both state and local union jobs for government workers. The stimulus funds were actually directed towards a substantial number of academian pursuits to include cocaine monkeys and dancing human capitol investments and were touted at keeping unemployment levels at 8% or better. The result of this effort was to massively worsen US debt problems while achieving nothing but lining the pockets of the most favored. Obama and others later laughed at the fact that their ideas of shovel-ready were totally unrealistic. The Civil Society's faith in their Government dropped precipitously as a result, while the birth knell of a Cloward-Piven strategy had been sounded and loudly. No Republicans voted for this bill.
On 2/04/09 the S chip bill was signed into law which wildly expanded government healthcare for poor children. This $ 33 billion dollar program increased eligibility for healthcare and expanded eligibility upwards of 50% for higher income children, while widening the coverage to adults as well. The welfare state spending program had begun, while American jobs and deficit control efforts were nowhere to be found.
Omnibus Spending Act
On 3/11/09 the massive $ 410 billion omnibus spending act passed with little if any Republican support. Under the act, over 9,000 earmarks were funded. The net effect of this bill increased domestic spending by over 8% while walloping the US deficit even further. So far, when combined with the stimulus, the Democrats had increased domestic spending by over 80% from the previous year. America would soon find Herself drowning in debt, while the blame for America's economy would later be heaped upon the Republicans, by the Democrats, who vastly outnumbered the GOP in both chambers.
The American Clean Energy And Security Act (Cap and Trade)
On 6/26/09 the US House passed a bill that was clearly aimed at massively increasing the costs on American consumers and business for energy in order to control usage. In fact, this ill-designed bill, along with the threat of its passage either administratively or via EPA regulation, sought to shatter American competitiveness in an already outrageously competitive world market, while the Democrats could then feel smugness at an anemic effort to control its citizen's energy usage while increasing their dependence. The Senate later dropped consideration of passage due to the uncovering of the climate hoax and the Hadley emails. But the damage had been done and would continue unabated as the EPA would unconstitutionally pick up remnants of the legislation and install these vestiges in a regulatory effort whose author was none other than Obama himself. Some estimates stated that America could lose over 7 million jobs as a result while incurring additional costs of over $ 2 trillion dollars if these measures were put into full effect. A job-killer if ever one, there was.
Obamacare or "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"
One of the nation's most economically devastating boondoggles in its entire history saw passage on 3/23/10, square in the midst of the worst recession in the nation's history. Once again, virtually every Republican said "no" to allowing Government to exert its already vast control over 1/6th of the nation's economy, while only 20 House Democrats voted against the bill. While the bill was Liberally touted as saving Americans huge sums of money, the reverse actually proved to be true. The act sought to eventually net more than $ 400 billion in new taxes while costing Americans over $ 226 billion in new healthcare costs. The unseen ramifications saw American employers dropping employees down to non-act levels, while over 1,400 healthcare waivers were eventually granted to the most favored companies. Meanwhile, better than half of all states challenged the constitutionality of Obamacare. Interestingly, this provision alone would have driven American into a recession, but in the midst of a terrible recession, the US sank even further into wide-ranging economic despair as a direct result of its Government's efforts. Greece is the word on this legislative rape-session.
The Gulf Spill Moratorium
In April of 2010 the US gulf suffered a spill that, according to the media, would darken the gulf for a century. Obama later sought to shut down a vast number of drilling operations in a moratorium which cost Americans over 40,000 jobs and untold energy sales. Even when a Federal judge ordered the moratorium lifted, the White House found myriad ways to maneuver around the judge's ruling despite being largely uninterested in the entire clean-up process. Less than a year later, the US saw its gasoline costs skyrocket to $ 4.00 per gallon due to supply shortages owing to Mideast unrest, at least in part. The gulf, also less than a year later, showed little if any side-effects from the spill despite legions of funded scientists, in search of research dollars, who argued over how terribly the Gulf environment had suffered, despite every appearance to the contrary. Energy, once again, had become the Democrats worst enemy while remaining America's best friend.
The List Is long, The Injuries Extensive, But What If?
So bad had the Democratic Liberal storm become, that by July of 2010, many Tea Party Americans and Republicans and even some few Democrats were convinced that America, were it not for both a Liberal Congress and a radical executive branch, would have been riding high again.
Think about it for a moment.
Without the prior 18 months of radical hell, America's economy could have been handily reducing its debt, if not at least breaking even on annual revenue to expenses. Jobless rates could have lowered down to perhaps 7.5 % levels while oil drilling could have been approved in diverse areas all around the US. Healthcare could have been breaking new ground while even lowering costs while State and local Government jobs would be in a far more tenable position. The illegal alien debacle along the Arizona and Texas borders would have been under far greater control as America's economic largess would have spread into Mexico, thereby reducing the poverties of an illicit drug trade.
Thousands of businesses would not have gone under, which would have meant a wealth of jobs and a retreat from limited Government payments for the unemployed and those who were worse off. Alas, the worst did happen and now we are forced to deal with a vast series of state and local Government corrections and increased joblessness. One can only wonder at what straits the US would now be in had the Tea Party and the Republicans failed to retake control of the legislative originating US House along with vast stretches of State Government control. The economic and religious upsets within the Mideast might have never occurred as there would have been no need for America's quantitative easing and, therefore, no massive uptick in inflationary trends. Nor would America be worrying that the world might rethink the American dollar as the world's reserve currency.
The Left-Wing, in fact, had its chance at governing and has only succeeded in a magnificent failure of epic proportions. America won't soon make that mistake again.
So, despite the Left's rather sniveling attempts at pointing the finger of sabotage at Republicans, the actual record speaks for itself and does so in volumes. The Democrats Have presided over an unprecedented decline in American exceptionalism and wealth and the voters will have their final retribution in November of 2012.
Obama and the Democrats will finally find their rightfully earned positions in 2012, and the world will most likely cheer as America comes roaring back to life.
