Obama Speaks Again

Tyler Durden's picture




 

No, it isn't the first time Obama has spoken on the Fiscal Cliff, and more importantly, the debt ceiling, which no matter what happens today appears set to remain unresolved as part of today's 60 day stopgap deal, if indeed one materializes. It won't be the last. There will be, however, much hope, optimism, and scapegoating, as always.

As a reminder, here are the rules of the drinking game - every time someone, in this case Obama, says:

  • "optimistic", do 1 shot;
  • "not optimistic" - 2 shots;
  • "cautiously optimistic" - 3 shots;
  • "guardedly optimistic" - 4 shots;
  • "encouraged" - 5 shots
  • "hopeful" - 10 shots
  • "fair" - 15 shots
  • And, naturally, "Bush's fault" - chug

"Let me state this clearly, yet again, as many here and elsewhere have as well:  This is all theater. The fiscal cliff is a non-issue. Both "different" parties will agree on something, if they haven't done so already, that manages to screw over the largest % of actually productive businesses and people in the U.S., soon.

"We are going to solve this problem in steps. "

Translation: We haven't done our job (even though I just gave everyone raises) so we are going kick the can down the road again. Only seeing as we have pretty much run out of road, each time we kick the can, it will not go quite as far. "

What a joke.

Each time they kick the can its weight doubles, while the boot gets smaller.  One day that can is going to be the one doing the kicking.  That's why we "prep" with guns, grub and gold (silver).

"We are going to ensure that more blood is extracted from the masses, and implement something to save the Banking/WallStreet/Defense/BigPharma&HealthCare complex from any cuts (let alone not see their taxpayer provided trillions in subsidies increased dramatically), because Deep Capture is here to stay, and that's how Deep Capture rolls bitchez.

Each kick takes more effort than the last, and doesn't go as far as the last, requiring another kick sooner than expected.  This will cycle down until there is no energy left to kick the can.  That process is accellerating.

Congress is not structured to make hard decisions. They do the easy decisions like national eyeball cancer awareness day and saying yes to all spending. Without any Constitutuoonal limits on power and spending and taxing they will continue on this path.

So, fire, smoke, heat, bluster, hand wringing, tense sound bites, etc.; it is all cheap theater and means nothing. The curves will go exponential and we will collapse as the political class dithers.

I wish one of those reporters had the balls to ask this douche bag "who is making all the money off the US debt?" and a follow up question: "Why should a private bank make billions of dollars a year from US debt?" and then a final question: "Do taxpayers even know that a huge portion of their taxes go to a private bank to pay the interest on the debt?" 

No Fed, no debt.

Yes, but... says: December 31, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I think the main point is that it’s no longer a question of who’s doing it to us, why they’re doing it, or what are the means they’re employing to do it. This is all getting to be pretty standard fare now. The main question to be resolved at this point is, is there anything that can be done to stop the further shock-doctrinization of the US and the world absent the “democratic process,” which we now know has been wholly appropriated as well by the new world order.

In one sense, it’s wholly appropriate that the US get served up a full helping of its own just dessert since we were the primary pushers of this whole abomination, but then again, revenge ain’t gonna really help anything and most Americans truly were helpless and ignorant before a monstrous global theft ring that would have just squashed them anyway. And should any of us have to worry about organized crime rings at the highest levels of world power anyway? Check that last question; asked and answered.

America really is the laughing stock of the World.

They keep spouting bullshit like 'greatest nation on Earth'...REALLY??!!!

  • As someone posted, they stomp around the World with their military might (800 bases in 134 countries)
  • No budget in 3 years
  • Go to war with Libya like a rat up a drainpipe on the mere mention of Gaddafi saying 'he will go door-to-door to purge terrorists, yet they do fuck all about Syria et al

It's OK, kids, just hit the alcohol and opiates extra hard tonight, pretend you've reason to celebrate, and don't forget, there are plenty of other taxes coming into effect this year, so we haven't forgotten about you... for you to have the opportunity to pay your fair fucking share, assholes.

 

Blah blah blah blah blah blah

It's gonna be very difficult to have any joy tonight watching Dick Clark's corpse being thrown off the roof of that 5 story building on Times Square
