Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue.The sooner the US economy collapses the better, so these brutes will finally learn NOT to live beyond their means.

Are you a bot you stupid wanker? You said the same thing the other day verbatim. or are you just stupid. BTW, if America collapses, who is going to protect your ass from Russia. Da da.

Sorry chap, but all nations now issue debt money at interest.  So when the debt (money) stops increasing, we are all done.

Unless you are a now well capitalized bankster ready for taking real property at pennies on the dollar, you are in the same boat, but on a different deck.

Most people are dumb. Learn things the hard way no matter how much smart folks warn.

I hope he comes on with devil horns and a pitchfork and sets everyone on fire while eating their mortal souls. On live TV.

That would rawk.

I like how your mind works. I assume they keep you in a cage at your place of employment?

cougar_w's picture

Are you kidding? No cage at all and no leash most days and they let me write ... wait for it ... internet security software!

Yes, they are fools. But I love my work so I let them live.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Now that's just crazy talk.

That you would let them live I mean.

Rick Masters's picture

You're funny, Courgar. Thanks for the laugh.

I wonder if, at this point, it is even possible for bankers and politicians to be more hated than they already are?  

I'm going to go ahead and be surprised if it is possible.

I think its only possible bankers can be even more hated when the last of the clingers-on, the true believer middle class remnants, get their foreclosure notices.

MsCreant's picture

I like your take. I had more of a Send in the Clowns kind of vibe feel about this.

NICE! You're the first I've seen, MommaDog. Now, would you like fruit or mint?

Whining, pissing, moaning and best of all....

Classic Victimization... It's not my fault, I wasn't there, I did my part, Hammie did it not me, the dog ate my homework, nobody can prove it, I have an excuse, why does everybody hate me, if they'd do it my way (compromise) then it'd all be OK, they're the problem not me, I'm fair and honest, they're dumb.....

At this point, we'll get a compromise along the lines fo the McConnell proposal, I think.

The GOP can't run the House.  It's the difference between being a protest movement and a functioning governing body. 

The compromise will pass with mostly Dem votes, but enough Reps to give it a majority.

CrashisOptimistic's picture

You do not understand conference rules.

No Speaker can bring a bill to the floor with the intent of passing it over the majority of his or her own caucus.  This is why Pelosi never brought a tax increase to the floor.  Her own caucus would vote it down.

Hastert did it one time decades ago and was told that if such a thing ever appeared to be about to take place again, he would be replaced before the vote.

Nope, you never ever can pass a bill over the majority of your own party.

chet's picture

I do understant those rules.  The point I'm trying to make is that the GOP house "leadership" can't pass any legislation (for the very reason you describe).  So in what sense are they leading anything at all?  They wanted the job, but they can't get er done.

They keep looking at Obama, like "you have to do something!"  But Obama can't run the White House and Congress.  Boehner and Cantor, you wanted the house, so figure out how to do something with it.
