Watch The President Deliver The American Jobs Act To Congress Live

Tyler Durden's picture

For all your heartfelt, congratulatory, nay laudatory remarks vis-a-vis the TOTUS, here is the webcast that will allow you to comment as you toast the president who certainly means well, even if he still has to be acquainted with an abacus. That's ok though. "Everything will be paid for"... Somehow. Even the post office. Just hike that debt ceiling. After all who needs taxes when the Fed will soon monetize the entire deficit anyway. In the meantime, as a reminder that Dubya may be gone but not forgotten, we get this from Bloomberg: DEPT OF HOMELAND SECURITY CITES 'SPECIFIC, CREDIBLE' THREAT.

enough of the talk Mr. President

with all due respect, Put up or Shut up

dwdollar's picture

I don't respect the president.

Is that Obama?  Or Osama?

Maybe YoMamma?

Talk is cheap.  He's all talk.

 EDIT:  After watching this side show for 10 mins, I can firmly conclude that this speech will go down in history as one of the most abysmal failures of all time.  Not only is it full of nothing, it lacks the same "I have a dream-esque" that Oflubber used to get elected.

No one's buying it anymore.  We need action and results.  This man is about neither.

Speaking of all talk -- did you have your own plan to offer? I assume you do, given your critique. Let's hear it.

I'll take a shot:

1. Fire Congress, all of them.  transfer congressional powers to state governors.

2. Change all patents to a 10 year life. After that, open source and free for anyone.

3. Legalize pot for anyone 25+

4. Change mail delivery to 3 days a week. Charge $1 for standard letters.. No discounts for bulk junk mail.


Could think of a bunch more..  But that's a start..

Get rid of income tax, IRS, dept or education, homeland security, dea, ATF... Institute a national sales tax capped at 10%, instate competing currencies, end the fed, close all foreign bases, bring the troops home... Just to name a few.

Here's a good start: 

1) Get us out of the six wars we're in.

2) Immediate and massive tax cuts.

3) Immediate and massive spending cuts.

4) Every single government program and agency must see cuts, many to be eliminated entirely.

5) Immediately - troops, drones, cameras, wall to the Mexican border. Anyone attempting to cross will be shot.

6) All illegals caught to be deported immediately. If they are working under the table, the company will not be punished this first time but will be told to put an ad in the paper that there is a job opening.

7) All czars are immediately removed from power and hauled before a Senate committee to testify as to their actions and what money they have spent.

8) Obama must either resign immediately or offer not to run in 2012.

9) All foreign aid will be ended immediately and the money put into the US treasury. This includes payments/aid to the UN.

That is for starters.

Here's my plan

1. End wars, nationalize the federal reserve, abolish all taxes, restore the Constitution and bring back all civil liberties, declare undocumented immigrants citizens with the option to participate in nationalized industry and encourage them to be assimilated. Make abortion illegal since life begins in the womb (biological fact that has nothing to do with dogma or theology) and because future citizens and workers will be needed to help finance social programs. Secure the border.

2. Nationalize any industry that received bailouts, subsidies, excessive tax breaks, built by government grants, or any singificant corporate welfare. All assets seized and the profits from GE alone would be enough to finance my plans. Time to collect on that debt, we'll see how they like real socialism. 100% of profit goes to the state to be redistributed. Small businesses and any corporation that did not participate national looting would be left alone.

3. Institute a barter based economy backed by the capabilities of national industry and national resources. Transnational trade will be based on barter.

4. Invest heavily in infrastructure and industry with collected wealth from the previously nationalized industries. All industry created will be property of the state. This will create more than enough jobs with high wages because my monetary policy will be backed by industry and resources and the currency won't inflate as wages rise.

5. Institute social programs, state owned and operated. People are given a choice to opt out of social programs but won't reap the benefits of the collective. Capitalism won't be discouraged or prevented but all participants will receive no benefits from the state but will not be hindered by the state.

6. Revamp public education to teach critical thinking skills and logic. Public schools will compete with the best private schools and will be held to those standards. Institute tuition free public universities.

7. The most important thing of all is my plan would be a free society. People will not be hindered by the state and will be able to choose the life they live. If they wish to establish communities contrary to the ideology of the state then they will not be hindered. If they wish to create a socialist community separate from the state then they will be free to do so so long as they do not harm anyone.

Please God, deliver us a well placed asteroid... in Jesus' name, Amen.

That would be bullish

It would be bullish.  However, I'm not sure Jesus is into hit requests.  Just sayin'.

Nah, he has a history with the moneychangers. Remember, Jesus the sequel will return as a warrior.

Snidley Whipsnae's picture

"why the fuck would they raise the sec level?"

The azz hats that molest kids, women, old people at transportation terminals don't want us to forget that we are still paying them...

O to announce an updated version of the Unpatriot Act?

They haven't figured out that we aren't spending money, except on PMs, to wreck the TBTF banks and the azz hat gov that support them...

Awe man...I was really hoping to see that Reagan clip from last night beneath the President Zero speech box.  Talk about your contrast.  Considering the moron contest last night in the comment section of the Reagan speech thread, it would have been a nice opportunity for certain members of ZH to ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THE REAGAN SPEECH.

Hi ho.


Cdad's picture

Reagan....Reagan....Reagan....Reagan....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Come on, Tyler.  Show them what this speech is really NOT about.

David Galland - We're Living in a Degraded Democracy


" Well, all the elements for fascism are in place. We have a monetary system that is accountable to no one and that’s a very good start. If you think about it, the way that the monetary system is structured, the government at this point can literally spend money on anything. They talk about capping the federal deficits and all that, but they’ll get past that in no time at all. Probably by the time the viewers are watching this they will have announced a big deal, you know, that they have raised the debt cap. And you know, once you have – if you pin your money to nothing, if you have a monetary system that is based on nothing, then you can afford anything. You can afford all the wars you want, you can afford all the bureaucracy you want; and so they have. That’s a first step."

BlackholeDivestment's picture they just issued a ''credible terror threat warning'' and BOOM, Rosemary's Baby enters the Captiol.

...ironic? LOL

bob_dabolina's picture

The credible terror threat is a job speech tonight by Hussein, some might not make it out alive, suffering from self inflicted gun shot wounds or consuming cyanide capsules.

BlackholeDivestment's picture

...that's ''Hussein of Babylon'' and Chairman of the U.N.Security, winner of nuclear nonproLIFEration Nobel Prize.

With only a few days till 9-11, they have to issue a ''credible terror threat warning'' - without terrified sheep, their game falls apart.

Snidley Whipsnae's picture

"without terrified sheep, their game falls apart."

Right... and the terrified sheep are going to depend on DHC child molesters working at transportation terminals? LOL

Perhaps O is going to announce a new network of checkpoints that will stop all vehicles and check our papers?

I saw the system that Franco installed in Spain... up close and personal... The US is headed that way.

I would like to hear O say that he is going to uphold the Constitution...and put crooks in jail.
