Of course, $100MM polls are necessary for these important issues.  Like pastel colors.  And shades of tan.  And which hairspray is best.

There's something seriously wrong with me b/c I immaturely laugh now whenever ZH runs any headline with 'Boehner' in the title.

WTF.

Yeah. I caught myself saying 'boner' in a conversation with a co-worker today, talking shit and realized that's not what his last name really is, but, like you, I can't help myself but laugh every time I read it.

I really think the pinnacle was seeing 'Weiner' and a 'Bo(eh)ner' at the same time on the ZH home page.

Every time it got me. Every frickin' time.

Those ties represent the color noose the respective politico wishes to have when the whole Amerikan board game is finally flipped up from the playing table. 

Boehner: "What the fuck do you mean faith has been lost in our currency?  I'm going home."

"Tosses the game board from the table,"

I was thinking about it, these people can't be this stupid.  This is simply too much like a play or game.  Are they that ignorant to the waking tide in this country that they don't realize how transpartent this whole charade is?!?  Are they simply that bad at gauging the mass' awareness?

No, they don't understand that the masses are awakening.  The ground is changing under their feet, and they don't have any other playbook.  One easy example, take a close look at the pics of the alleged Oslo killer that came out a few days ago, the military uniform, the frogman uniform... obvious fakes.  The entire event is transparent, and people get it.  Three years, people would not see...  but that has changed.  TPTB are in deep shit.

Reminds me of the time I was at a fundraiser and met one of these congressional asshats. It's all summed up by our brief encounter. Me: "so what did you do before you were a congressman" CM: "I'm a U.S. congressman" Me: "Yes, I know. I was asking what you did before that." Awkward stare. Then his pissant aide, all of 21 is about to interject when suddenly "I used to sell vinyl siding"

So you see, the reason they seem unsophisticated is because they are. No need to over analyze tactics or search for some grand strategy. These douchebags are really just vinyl siding salesmen.

I think Boners tears are legit. You can almost see it in his eyes -

"Oh shit this country is so fucked and I am third in line for the Presidency so third in line for the post collapse slaugther."

Think I would be crying too. But what he needs to do is just tell the truth -

"Look... this country has been raped for 95 years by banking parasites, and it is time to rebuild. So we can either rally around our Muslem in chief and become socialist, and do this every ten years of so, or we can revert to a constitutional form of government and currency."

If I were in the same seat i would have to just tell the truth. - "Look this country has been pilaged by a bunch of banking parasites and we are gonna have to rebuild. So do you want to rebuild a socialist state with the Muslem in chief, or get back to what made us a great country? Oh and yes, Pelosi and Reed are my bitches!"

Yeah... I'm not sure you've thought your cunning plan all the way through.  If you stop paying your taxes, hired thugs will come to your house, point guns at you, and make you pay.  If you don't, they'll put you in a cage. In order for your plan to work, everyone would have to stop paying taxes at the same time, and most people are just too Goddamn stupid, or too lulled by McDonalds and reality TV, to even have the faintest inkling of the truth.  Even the ones that do know the score are rather fond of keeping what few freedoms we still have, so they still pay, albeit begrudgingly, out of a sense of self-preservation.  Like it or not, they have us painted into a corner.  They are guarding all the exits, they are holding all the keys.  And we allowed it to happen.

So yes, good idea in theory.  It would indeed starve Mammon to death.  But absent a fundamental, seismic shift in American consciousness, it is not going to happen.  By all means, keep dreaming, but please realize that you are.

This may sound like a minor point, but notice that ALL the Republicans at the Boehner presser spoke directly to the cameras, while Boehner and Reid struggled to read copy written for them by the WH.

When a person files for food stamps the amount you receive is based on the family size. So 45mil represents the total people.

1/7 food stamps. = 45 million

SS 16,114,000.

1 out of 5 supported by others.

http://www.ssa.gov/policy/docs/statcomps/ssi_monthly/2011-06/table01.pdf

Now add in all government employees, aprox 22 million.

That's a total of 83 million supported by how many working slaves? 153.4 million, which I assume is civilian workforce.

If so, 2 go to work to support their family, PLUS 1 other.

It's time to redefine FAIRNESS.

OK
How do you define "family"?
Single unmarried mothers with how the fuck many kids from multiple fathers? 
How many families?
For reality's sake, are we going to recognize some "minor" cultural variances as to the number of children?
Howse about one father with 6 unwed mothers and 44 children?  Is that one, many or indeterminate familiy(ies)?
Are any social groups excluded from the definition of family, like gays, etc.?
Has anybody even counted this shit?
Not really.
Does it even matter?
No
Why not?
Because it's all fucked up anyhow, little swizzle stick.
So can we get it unfucked?
No
So why do we pretend?

Because pretending is foundation of all civilisation.

Well, that's a big fuckin help Knukles.
Always happy to help shatter the illusion of the moment.

Oh boy, Obammy coming on at 9pm to talk to the American people about a stalemate in debt talks....does he even realize the people want no debt ceiling raise, no tax increases, no SS raids, and for him to stop wasting Trillions of dollars each year on his new banker friends on Wall St?

Default is the best option for everyone.  Short term, there will be some pain, but long term we all win.  Default and get it over with.

And now The Teleprompter is going to grace us once again with a prime-time campaign commercial - I mean, statement. President Hissyfit will probably endorse Tara Reid's "plan" because he probably loves it:

1) it gives him the $2.4T no-questions-asked credit line,

2) it kicks the can out past the 2012 election (maybe), and

3) the "spending cuts" are made-up almost entirely of not-spending DOD money in Iraq and Afghanistan and simply made-up stuff

In other words, everything The Banksters and other rent-suckers and Free-Stuff Soldiers are demanding.

Yea, no doubt, that's terrible too.  But the question was towards Boehner.  Sorry, he's just dumb and of average to below average intellect.  Obama's just a fucking sleazoid but it's technically stupid.  Same with Cantor, Reid, Geithner, Bernak and the like.

I don't know if it's worse to be smart and a corrupt scumbag or too fucking stupid for the job.  I know that Boehner isn't even reasonably capable of the job aside from his political stripes.  You can't actually listen to him and not draw the conclusion if you aren't blinded by the partisian garbage.

There's no need to pollute the lake with Bhoaner. Just put him on the curb on trash night and he'll be hauled off to the proper place.

BTW, since it looks like Yucca Mountain won't be used as a dump for nuclear waste, can we use it as a landfill for politicians?

Making all this even more absurd:  Boehner can't deliver enough votes from his own party to make the debt ceiling pass.  Republican negotiation strategy:  Refuse to return telephone calls; publically call out the other side as "chicken", "jello" and "vile and despicable" (Love to hear what they are saying in private); after negotiating for seven months, 1) present proposals without details (details to be worked out "by committee"); claim the other side lacked leadership.  

Seems to me, it would probably be cheaper for the rich folk to agree to revenue increases then risk having the democrats man up by letting the US default and thus allowing the economy to fail.  But what the hay.  As DeMint pointed out, the democrats usually fold rather than risk potential catastrophe (see Bailout, TARP).  

Predict Boehner will have have Obama,  Reid and Pelosi give him and Kantor sexual favors on live TV on the Senate floor as a condition of delivering some Republican votes to raise the debt ceiling.  Then he'll not deliver the votes. 

Boehner is a great (used car) salesman.  He started his Congress days as a leader well; On the Congress floor, Boehner was handing out checks from the Tobacco lobby to his fellow Republicans.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAC2xeT2yOg.  Steve Largeant called him out.  But Boehner not only survived scandal but flourished.  Sad.

Maybe the Demos should send the Weinerman to negotiate for them.
