Watch The Teleprompter's Update On The "Status Of Efforts To Find A Balanced Approach To Deficit Reduction"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

This is getting bad. The market, like the good Pavlov dog it is, will start associating the president's now daily appearance with market plunges. Oh well. Some comedy relief nonetheless for those (the majority) that is not watching the Tiger address at the same time.

I loved it when he said:

"The average American is not concerned with the ins and outs of every Treasury auction, nor should they be.  That's what we're paid for."

 

LMFAO!!!!

 

In other words, "don't watch our ponzinomics at work.  We need to keep this ponzi going, so lets raise this debt ceiling and continue the idiocy of running a fake economy, based on nothing material, just shifting ledger amounts to falsify activity."

Hilarious.

Glad I own something that is in direct conflict with, and goes agains, their policy actions.  They obviously can't have gold and silver break out and, since we all know governments are totally incompetent, they will try until total failure.

If Bachmann is the hard-core Christian that she claims, does this mean she subscribes to the Christian doctrine that wives should be subservient to their husbands?  If elected, does this mean her husband will actually be calling the shots in the White House, per Biblical orders (Ephesians 5:21-32)?

Last week, Bachmann signed a pledge to ban pornography. If Bachmann is elected, will porn become outlawed?  Christians are so funny....

Pretty weak overmed... how about the over the top hypocracy (and inconsitancy) of her government managed positions on social issues, while claiming less government is the solution to all problems, and the core of her leadership principles?

Mon, 07/11/2011 - 16:42 | 1445312 Max Fischer
Max Fischer's picture

This is just another example of Tea Party hypocrisy, and few politicians exemplify it better than Bachmann.

She (and her constituents) are so quick to jump on their soapboxes and rant about liberty and freedom from government control....except, EXCEPT, if it conflicts with their own wallet or personal beliefs. Then, they want the exact opposite:  specific government regulations  to protect their government checks and Christian ideologies.  It's pure hypocrisy.

Tea Party goons are only critical of government spending and government regulation if it doesn't directly benefit them financially or coincide with their particular, narrow-minded social beliefs. 

In rhetoric, Tea Partiers are fanatical about wanting the government out of their lives.  In reality, they're perfectly fine with government restrictions on our freedom so long as it furthers their evangelical Christian ideology - like banning porn, or banning gay marriage or meddling in abortion isses.  Or whatever the controversy du jour is.

This is why the Tea Party is so full of shit, and no different than any other political group fighting for their specific interests.

Ultraman visits evacuation center

A popular TV character visited an evacuation center in the disaster-hit Fukushima Prefecture to cheer up families and children on Sunday.

The late Eiji Tsuburaya, who invented Ultraman, was from Sukagawa City in the prefecture. Staff from his Tokyo-based production firm visited the facility in Koriyama City 45 years after the character made his TV debut.

A boy who evacuated from Tomioka Town says it was fun to meet Ultraman, and he likes the way he attacks his enemies.

The boy's 36-year-old mother says she is happy, as the evacuation center does not have a place where children can play.
