Oh, Yeah, and Then There's This Fucking Horseshit Too
Obama's claiming that he'll "cut" $2 trillion from the budget over ten years.You don't really think he's going to cut spending, do you? Of course not. So here's how he comes up with $1.6 trillion of his $2 trillion in "cuts:" He takes the 2008, peak-of-the-surge cost of the Iraq War as our permanent Iraq War spending baseline. He extends that out ten years -- including goosing it down the line for inflation. Then he notes that he's ending a war which was actually pretty much ended by our troops (and the Iraqis, too) by defeating Al Qaeda and ending the insurgency. Then he says, "Hey, man, look -- every year I'm going to be saving money on those Iraq War costs! Count it as a 'cut'!" Um, yeah. What the fuck -- am I retarded? Am I giving off a pinhead kinda vibe? Am I wearing a brightly colored shirt with a silly picture on it and mismatches socks? What? What am I doing, exactly, to send out the signal that I'm a mental fucking defective? Watch the video. As Commentary notes, even by Washington standards, this is "unusually disingenuous." Why not go further? Within two years, according to Obama's rosy estimates, no further TARP or capital injections into the banking system will be needed. So, if we spent $2 trillion on that this year (let us say), why not say that for the eight years after we recover we'll be "saving" two trillion per year, for a total savings over ten years of $16 trillion? (Plus interest!) Thanks to Dave @ Garfield Ridge. Oh, and he also sends along this link about that price-leading-to-overestimation-of-a-product's-quality thing I mentioned, in case you need some kind of cite for it. PS: Obama's cultists are making much of the fact that Obama seeks to put Iraq War costs back into the regular budget. They hail this as an advance for transparency, accountability, and honesty. That's a lie. He wants to put the exceptional and temporary costs of the Iraq War into the regular budget so he can fraudulently claim $1.6 trillion in "savings" down the line. In Related News... The United States has "cut" over $75 trillion from its budgets over the past 230 odd years by not fighting the fucking British every goddamn fucking year.
1 Why stop at ten years? Why not a hundred? A thousand? That Barry sure knows how to save teh money!

2 Gee. I didn't buy a brand new Mercedes this year. I saved what, $80,000?
And if I don't buy one next year, that's twice that.
If I just don't buy Mercedes for the next 10 years, I'll be a multi-millionaire.

23 Shit. Now I feel stupid. Before now I didn't understand why he changed policy to include war spending in the general budget. I knew it had nothing to do with transparency or honesty as his cultist claim, but hadn't made the connection- why make the deficit look even bigger?
Perfect. Fucking. Sense. So long as spending increases are less than reduced war costs, he'll count it asa spending cut. Fucking douchebag.
But I'm sure the MSM will point out the dishonesty of claiming spending cuts when spending has actually gone through the roof, right?

53 Hold on....
Correct me if I am wrong, but wans't the libtard complaint for the past 8 years that we borrowed trillions for the Iraq War? You know, borrowed, as in we didn't have the cash so our loan shark (aka China) hooked us up with some cash.
So, aside from the ridiculousness so accurately explored above; isn't Capt. Unicorn even taking stupidity a pole vault further by suggesting that we're saving borrowed money?
For instance, I am flat broke yet couldn't I say that I am saving a hundred gazillion dollars by not going out an borrowing money that I don't have in the first place?
Going one step further, my example is still disingenuous since in ignores the fact that we already borrowed the money, thus we can no longer claim to be saving it. The only possible "savings" we could realize is if we were to stop paying back the existing loan. So, is Prez'nit Dumbo telling us that he's going to save us all that war cabbage by pulling an ACORN on the Chinese and claim that the debt is their fault because they shouldn't have given us a loan in the first place?
For fuck sake, I would rather have Paris Hilton in the White House than this jackass. At least we could pimp her out to Arabs for cash or something.

Uh, yeah, right. If you want to get laid tonight, this is where you have to shut up.
I'm waiting for Obama to come out to a presser and say "Does this budget make my ass look fat?".
Nobody will say anything bad, because they are worried that they won't get any lovin' from "the One". Too bad they don't realise that they are already getting screwed.
And now we are to ignore the market, and it's ups and downs.
How long do we have? A year? Six months? Will we even make it to July 4th?

We're homeschooling ours . Unfortunately , he'll miss out on the bullying from Obama's favorite demographic that dominates our local school district . I'd hoped to be able to send him to public school . Homeschooling is a pain in the ass but when ,,as a kindergartener , a third grader tried to extort money from him I could see the writing on the wall. We pulled him out of the gladiator academy after 1st grade.

87 Fellow Americans:
Reading this thread is quite disheartening, as is reading the WaPo poll showing the Dems have the country in their back pocket.
However, as we live in a free country, at least for the time being, we must as loyal citizens begin down the long road back to installing a government that will maintain and strengthen the Constitution and most importantly the ideal of limited government.
No other action makes any sense, and everyone on this site should seek out with a calm determination every local hack in charge of the local GOP chapter and proceed to take it over, step by step and day by day. Otherwise, the same horrific results of the last two elections will be repeated in 2010, and all the whining and crying on sites like this will mean absolutely fucking NOTHING.

The Omnibus bill included 40% pork by the Repubics. These fools had a golden chance to make a statement about fiscal responsibility but went to the trough instead. These are the assholes that need to be punished and made an example of .....Steele???? I expect Marxist Liberals to act this way.
Posted by: Cheri at March 03, 2009 09:24 PM (cz6lG)
91 Cheri - those earmarks were done and allowed in early 08 by teh morons known as the GOP leadership. The thing is, for some reason the prevailing view in the party apparatus is that the district pork is key to reelection prospects, and any stand like you describe would result in electoral disaster. thing is, we already got the electoral disaster the last two times over. at the end of the day, its a closer question that it seems as to whether bringing home pork is better or worse for pols....sure seems like a ton of fraudulent douchebags like Murtha bring in tons of pork and can do thing like call their constituents racist rednecks and still get comfortably reelected.

No. Really. I'm f'ing tired of a media which created the meme that Reagan said that Ketchup is a vegetable, but said squat when Bubba actually did exactly that for salsa. I'm equally tired of a Republican party which lets them and Dems walk all over them for sake of trying to get along.
They all view us as the enemy rather than a loyal opposition. They describe us as the enemy to the unwashed. We should act as such; we might actually get somewhere if we did.

Which is frankly, a goddamn mistake I've always opposed.
That money can be spent in no better place then continuing the drive the expel those tea sipping limey wankers from the entire continent, Canadian protestations be damned! They're all drunk on maple hooch anyway!
Shall we acquire peace by not fighting the British? No, sir! That didn't stop WWII and won't stop WWIII either. Strike at them!

103 This bit of news was blasted loud and clear in a pre-election 'interview' I read in VFW magazine. Every question asked was pertaining to Veteran's Benefits and were posited to both McCain and Obama. Every single answer to every single question that Obama gave? We will pay for this with the savings from the War in Iraq.
This is nothing different than what he told the press back in election season. It's just that no one was listening.
Of course, I was thinking, um, did anyone tell this man that the War in Iraq is TEMPORARY spending and not part of the regular annual budget?
Posted by: Kris G at March 03, 2009 10:14 PM (7GZEI)
104 Think of all that new spending we'll be able to afford if we simply refrain from invading Normandy this year, reconquering Europe and instituting the Marshall Plan. And if we refrain from doing this every year for the next ten years, we'll be set!
And that doesn't even include the savings from the Spanish-American War.

You must have an extremely limited vocabulary judging from your use of "fuck" and "fucking" to emphasize your language. Surely, you must know a few other verbs and adjectives! It gets rather boring to read the same words over and over. Overuse definitely destroys the strength; begins to mean nothing; simply becomes an eyesore.

You know, Java, I understand what you are saying, I really do.
And I would never resort to such language myself, however, Ace is one-of-a-kind! Frankly, I wouldn't want him any other way. His rants are truly a work of beauty, dirty language and all. He speaks for a lot of us here, me included. The language of anger and frustration is often harsh, and vile. I just can't see Ace saying, "pretty please, Mr. Obama, will you help us understand your policies?"
Ace, you da man! I would pay, and I don't have a lot of money either, but I would be willing to pay $200.00 to see you interview Barak Obama. No holds barred! You get to ask him anything you wish, and he has to answer. And if you think it's "horseshit," you can tell him it's "horseshit."
The ratings for such an interview would be astronomical I guarantee it.

Can't go wrong with Blade Runner. And Ace is still off his rocker for hating that movie.
Back on topic, it seems to me that no matter how the left goes on and on about equality and social justice, their plans and and policies always return nations to a state similar to feudal Europe. There will be a stratified society consisting of a small aristocracy that runs things, a small middle class that will work hard to stay out of the lower class
but be prevented from entering the aristocracy by tax barriers, and a large class of serfs/peasants who rely upon the aristocracy for their subsistence. The aristocracy will maintain their hold through taxation, regulation, and corruption. Laws will not apply to them in the same way they apply to the rest; heck, we already see this now. If there are still elections they will only be for show as true power will be maintained by the non-elected portion of the government. It really isn't very different from feudalism.

114 One more thing, Ace, put this on a t-shirt and you will make a million -
"Hey, man, look -- every year I'm going to be saving money on those Iraq War costs! Count it as a 'cut'!" - President Obama
You could put me down for one right now!
This would also make a snappy t-shirt:
"What the fuck, Obama -- am I retarded? Am I giving off a pinhead kinda vibe?
Am I wearing a brightly colored shirt with a silly picture on it and mismatches socks? What?
What am I doing, exactly, to send out the signal that I'm a mental fucking defective?"

117 The war gimmick is only half the story; Rich Lowry:
"He said his team had begun going “line by line” through the budget, and “we have already identified $2 trillion in savings over the next decade.”
In common parlance, “savings” is taken to mean . . . well, savings. But half of this $2 trillion is accounted for by Obama’s planned tax increases on the rich — in other words, he has identified revenue, not savings. Much of the rest is arrived at by assuming the Iraq War would cost $170 billion a year for the duration, even though Obama has long planned a drawdown. Obama portrays himself as ruthlessly paring back government when he is simply raising taxes and leaving Iraq."....
Stopping welfare fraud is "savings". Canceling a Bridge to Nowhere is "savings". Confiscating people's earnings through new taxes is not "savings". As if letting people keep their own money were an "unecessary public expenditure".
Posted by: Noel at March 03, 2009 11:14 PM (7FgWm)
118 "As Commentary notes, even by Washington standards, this is "unusually disingenuous.""
No surprise here. Obama is unusually unlikable, unusually stupid andunusually inexperienced. "Unusually disingenuous" just seems like another piece of the puzzle.
"In Related News... The United States has "cut" over $75 trillion from its budgets over the past 230 odd years by not fighting the fucking British every goddamn fucking year."
Well, let's all give a hand to President Washington then. (Not for winning the war, of course, but for "cuts." It's the Obama way after all.)
