The Political Placebo

placebo – 1. A substance containing no medication and prescribed or given to reinforce a patient’s expectation to get well. 2. Something of no intrinsic remedial value that is used to appease or reassure another.

We The Stupid

[…] Obama is going to be handed something in excess of $2 Trillion — and he has made it perfectly clear that he will spend every penny of it before the November 2012 election. That’s why he kept saying, ” . . . so we don’t have to do this again”, meaning raise the debt ceiling again. The debt ceiling would only need to be raised if all of the money had been spent. Therefore, he has stated very clearly that he will spend every penny of any debt ceiling increase. He is going to burn through $2 Trillion-plus in the next sixteen months. This was the Obama regime’s plan from day one. Geithner appeared before Congress in early May and told them this in no uncertain terms. This outcome has been a known quantity all along.

There are no spending cuts in this plan. It is all accounting fraud. Saying that you are not going to spend money in Afghanistan ten years from now is not spending cuts. Even if you accept the $1 Trillion in cuts over ten years propaganda, that is only $100 Billion per year, which is essentially meaningless relative to the size of the problem. Furthermore, even a miniscule uptick in interest rates, which given the massive debasement of our currency is now a mathematical certainty, will completely consume that $100 Billion per year. It’s all a joke.


Do you realize that there are only a handful of nations of this planet that even have a GDP in excess of $2 Trillion? If these countries loaned us every penny of their GDP, it wouldn’t even be $2 Trillion:

Canada ($1.57 T)
India ($1.54 T)
Russia ($1.46 T)

Are you starting to understand the scope of what we are talking about now? Obama is going to embezzle considerably more than the entire economic output of Canada, India or Russia to his cronies before the 2012 election — and that is just counting this round of spending. This doesn’t include the other $5 Trillion he has already burned through since 2009.


The Obama regime is not a failure. The Obama regime is not incompetent. The Obama regime has achieved more in two and a half years than anyone could have possibly foreseen. It has debased the currency by 50% of the GDP and guaranteed that our economy will collapse. It has looted the Treasury for more than the size of a top-ten economy and embezzled that wealth into the hands of their fellow Marxists in preparation for the final collapse of the United States. It has ground the economy of the United States to a screeching halt. It has destabilized the entire Muslim world and ensured that there will be a nuclear war centered around Israel within the decade.

The Obama regime has no interest whatsoever in “stimulus” or “getting folks back to work.” How can you not understand this? How can we possibly win this war if we refuse to come to terms with the fact that we are in fact fighting a war.

God save the United States of America, because the people are far too stupid to do it themselves.

Nothing sucks more than waking up after a nasty Vegas bender that would kill an elephant, only to find out you got the “Deluxe Package” marriage
at the cheesy corner chapel to the ugliest, most selfish and useless jackass known to humanity who blew all your winnings … and you just don’t have a dime left for a quickie divorce.

  1. While I understand that this bill does nothing to fix the problem long term, we simply did not have the cards to force a more palatable solution. Like I said in another post, the reason the Dems have control of the senate and the white house is because the GOP acted in a very unconservative manner from 2008-2006. Our elected Republican representatives and senators (along with President Bush) allowed the situation to devolve to one where the American public had to fire them (not knowing that what was coming was much, much worse). Had they taken care of business, we wouldn’t be in this mess today.

  2. “Had they taken care of business, we wouldn’t be in this mess today.” Dittos – but while that’s true, it’s much deeper and long term than that. The country has had several decades of a constant drip of alluring and well-dressed socialist propaganda that has become entrenched in the psyche of too many Americans; it doesn’t just come from higher ed institutions and media, it’s compunded by the oily gab of politicians. You can date it back to any year you want after 1900.
    As a result, an unfortunately large percentage of the voting public sends ideologically poisonous officials into office AND keeps them there. Sometimes for decades. And too many decent taxpayers have chosen to remain uninvolved till very recently. Too bad it takes a financial 9/11 to get them riled up.

    While we can sit here for days to discuss & unravel all the bad decisions that led us where we are (and that is an important thing we must do), we can’t escape the fact that the voters put all these people in power; we assented to our own demise, for whatever reason. In my lifetime, Reagan was the only conservative I’ve known of any consequence; everyone else has been left of center. Good strong leaders are nearly non-existent: just take a look at the sorry lot of them on Capitol Hill — cowards and hypocrites, unwilling to stand up for anything or to anyone to do the right thing if it costs them something. As voters, we can’t afford to stay home + keep quiet while our livelihoods are destroyed.

  3. Yes, as I keep saying, follow the votes. In a real democracy, the real problem is never bad politicians, but bad voters.

  4. Why should the American voters be any different than the American parent(s)?

    I mean, the American parent(s) generally send their kids off to school and just assume that’s all they need to do in their child’s education and development.

    The American voter lazily picks the candidate that uses the best bullshit lines and looks good on camera. They vote them into office then assume that’s all they need to do to uphold their end of the republic.

    These people only have as much power as we are willing to allow them.

    We have allowed them far too much, and now we have to pull it away from them … and in the process be considered “terrorists” for doing so.

    If the bulk of the American people do not see exactly what is going on here we are doomed.

    It really is on the edge of where this country was just before the American Revolution. We have become subjects to our government, when in fact our government was designed and built to be subjects to us.

    Frankly, I am pretty pissed that I am supposed to consider people the likes of Shelia Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Lindsey Graham, etc, somehow more intelligent or more ‘common sensed’ than myself that I should just sitdown and STFU and let them make these decisions for me, in spite of me.

  5. I wish there were a way to do nothing. I hope the senate votes this bill down or Obama vetoes it.

    Since they demonize us anyway and call us terrorists and hostage takers as we increase the debt in the tens of trillions of dollars, why didn’t we ask for the moon and bargain from there? They hate us anyway.
    Were I in congress and saw the sickening spending on nothing important, I would have proposed a bill to eliminate whole departments, set spending caps at 2008 levels for all departments except defense which I would not cut at this time, allowed no new spending, and no new taxes and used that as a base line. All of this with the balanced budget amendment offered and with a 2/3 majority needed to even talk about a penny of new taxes. They would call us hostages of the tea party, etc. So what else would be new?
    At least they would be telling the truth that time.

  6. Oddly these are the same people that cannot bring themselves to calling the actual TERRORISTS terrorists, but have no problem calling American citizens terrorists.

    As to the ‘cutting’… Yep, Honey, another ‘oddly’ they only insist on cutting spending on the one entity in this nation fighting and protecting us from the real terrorists.

    My idea for cutting whole depts.

    1. EPA (by at least 90-98%)

    2. NEA (by 100% and leaving it completely to the states)

    I have others but I’m out the door right now.

    Oh, and ObamaCare should be completely dumped.
