Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee: "Math iz hard"

Maxine Waters really amped up the sequester scare tactics today:

... We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost ...

Per the BLS, as of January 2013 there were 143.3 million people employed in the US. The total civilian workforce is 155.7 million people.

Looking at the bright side, though ... to lose over 170 million jobs, we must briefly go to 109% of the workforce being employed first. So there's that.

congressional hearing when she plainly stated her true intentions:
“Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal would be
about socializing … uh, umm. … Would be about, basically, taking over,
and the government running all of your companies.”

23 And this is why I hold out less and less hope for the nation to survive.

Because here's what will happen... nothing.

Probably most people will never hear of this. But let's assume the Media engages in an accidental incident of journalism.

When it comes out, she'll say, "That's not what I said!" and people will nod along. Then the video will get play and she'll say, "Well maybe that's what I said, but it's not what I meant!" and people will not along. Then something will come out pointing out that such a statement is fairly odd if it's "not what you meant," and she'll say, "Well, I meant to say those words, but obviously I was exaggerating for effect!" and people will not along.

At no point will very many people, if any, stop and wonder "Why would the head of the Senate Finance Committee be so woefully uninformed about the state of our economy?"

25 As a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee, Waters
played a key role in allowing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s reckless
actions that led to the housing meltdown. Here is Waters, at a 2004
congressional hearing, (and yes, that is the same “Frank” Raines that
vastly overstated Fannie Mae’s earnings in order to receive $90 million
in bonuses). “We do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and particularly
Fannie Mae, under the outstanding leadership of Frank Raines.”

Actually the only time I ever agreed with Crazy Max was right after the LA riots during Bush 41; She showed up in the gutted neighborhoods and said, "Bush doesn't care about you. You need to take care of your own neighborhood and not burn down your brothers' houses."

That was as close to rational as I've ever heard her despite the snark on Poppy.

36 ace, ace, ace. You've got to look at this like a politician.

In Washington, DC, a slowdown in the rate of growth is considered a cut. "Our budget is getting cut by 10%! Instead of a 15% increase, we're only getting 5% more than last year!"


Maxine is just doing the same thing with jobs.

"There are about 150 million people employed in the country. If we didn't have stupid Republicans getting in the way with this stupid sequest, that number would be at LEAST twice that amount by this time next year. That's right, without Republican obstructionism we'd have 300 million people employed in this country by next year. Hell, by the end of THIS year! So because of Republican's getting in the way, 170 million jobs will be lost!"

38 During the “Why can’t we all just get along” riots in her congressional
district, Waters excused the wonton violence, as her constituents were
intent on burning down the city. The Los Angeles Times quoted her
saying: “If you call it a riot, it sounds like it was just a bunch of
crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain
it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a
rebellion.”

The 4 types of officers:
The brilliant and energetic man makes the best staff officer. He handles routine work with accuracy and completeness.

The brilliant and lazy man makes the best commanding officer. He tends to see the big picture accurately and avoids preoccupation with detail work which might distract him.

The stupid and lazy man makes the best subordinate. He will do what he is told properly, no more no less.

The stupid and energetic man, however, is to be avoided at all costs. He is quite capable of ruining the best laid plans.

123 Maxine is just a blatant example of the raison d'etre of the socialist party. She is paid, not for work or brains, but due to her skin color and reliable vote for more government. In fact, the reason democrats are so vocal on cuts is that they cannot exist anymore without redistribution. Their party has given up every historical reason for its existence, and now is completely about taking from those who produce, and giving it to those who do not, in return for votes and in the process reduces the freedom of all.

168 President Obama’s budget will probably be released in March, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday, but has been delayed in part by “manufactured crises” including sequestration.

“The series of manufactured crises around budget issues, certainly has resulted at least in part in those experts in the administration who work on those issues having to spend a lot of time dealing with those crises rather than on that,” Carney said during his daily briefing. “But that’s part of the job and they’re working on the budget.”

31 USC § 1105 - Budget contents and submission to Congress
(a) On or after the first Monday in January but not later than the first Monday in February of each year, the President shall submit a budget of the United States Government for the following fiscal year. Each budget shall include a budget message and summary and supporting information.

How do we even begin to fight against such incompetence, stupidity, and disregard for the good on the Nation. We rail against it pretty much 24/7 here, but that has really done us a lot of good (Obama 2.0, Boehner as SoH, McCain re-elected, conservatism pretty much defanged, media bias so evident you can trip over it, an insane budget, crap economy for as far as the eye can see, no XL pipeline, Hagel as SecDef, etc. I am really and truly discouraged.

194 Tryingto make people think you're intelligent by using rarely used words
has always been a red flag for me. But you did support a truther over
Perry so not unexpected.


Well, I could have written "stubborn and short-sighted" but I'm lazy.

On the other hand, I did support Debra Medina. And, while I'm not crazy about her "having questions" about 9/11, I think she was a much needed force to pull Perry to the right 3 years ago, and I like a lot of her ideas regarding taxes and spending- still. Not sure how they'd work out practically, but that's a different matter.

You seem to love acting like a self-satisfied Democrat bitch a lot, you know that? Rather than answer the point- that your defense of Boehner is hackneyed and beyond stupid- you'd rather turn it around in a non sequitur ad hominem attack against me.

Fuck. That.

Answer it, nancy-boy. Why should I spend one moment supporting Boehner? What has he done to support Conservatism in the last 5 years? Heck, he hasn't been speaker that long: the last 2? Tell me.

Also- you left your sock on.

196 You know, since the white house is ignoring the constitution with regard to creating a budget, and the senate has ignored the constitution with regard to passing a budget for four years, I am going to look around and see which laws I can start ignoring.

Suddenly senile!
I cannot think clearly.
I nap through my meetings,
And soil my Depends!
Suddenly senile!
I mean this sincerely:
They don't do things nowadays
Like in 1910!

204 We are so blind who will not see. Rosa Parks was not a simple seamstress whose lonely act of defiance in 1955 sparked the Civil Rights Movement. She was a trained Communist Party Activist and had been employed by the NAACP since 1943. She was seretary of the Montgomery Chapter at the time of the events in 1955. The NAACP organized the bus "provocation."
Prior to the events, she had attended the Highlander Folk School, a Tennessee center for training activists for workers' rights and racial equality. She acted as a private citizen "tired of giving in".
I am not disparaging the Civil Rights Movements, its goals, or accomplishments. I question only the presence of myth and the absence of fact in the historical record.

214 Though a complete dunce Maxine is comforted to know that she always has her stunning good looks to fall back on. That's how she made it this far. That and a gerrymandered district of racially loyal constituents.

222 Math is NOT hard. You never had any teachers with the IQ of a turnip. You probably spent a year in algebra class and never learned what you could use it for.

Simple example, let's multiply 123 by 11: Bring down the units - 3; add the following two digits - 2+3=5; continue the process 2+1=3; finally bring down the 1.
Your answer is: 1353. It wasn't that hard. There are many other trick just as easy.
