America Is Congress In Some kinda Tea Party Time Warp ?
Tonight we watched President Obamas’ Speech like everyone else who is concerned about the economics of the US. We watched mostly the reactions of John Boehner. This man has some really big painful nutz. We watched him for the whole speech sitting behind the president rollin his damn eyes..
To quote Madea “Chile y’all need to learn some respect”
Hopefully during the coming months, Madea will pay a visit to the Capital and knock on Mr Boehners door for a friendly visit. When she’s there we can be sure that she will show him how to properly conduct himself in the presence of someone of Authority, since he seems to have none within his Grumpy Ole’ Party.
This is the Grumpy Ole’ People’s latest video from their 09/07/2011 debate.
To be fair we think that you deserve to see what they focused on and what is most important in their platforms. America Watch This Closely as they are talking to YOU.
Everyone knows that the Grumpy Ole’ Party asked the President to delay his speech until tonight, after their circus show last nite; so they’d get watchers. yes we know it’s supposed to be serious but how can you take this seriously ?
Any Damn Fool Knows that if you don’t Have Workers, You Don’t Have Tax Payers ? WTF GOP, don’t you teach your candidates the constitution at least ?
“Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital and deserves much the higher consideration…”
Presidents as far back as Abraham Lincoln have had to deal with economic recessions and have committed to do so for the good of the country. so what keeps the Grumpy Ole’ Peoples Nutz in a bunch ?
This is a quote from our friends at AZSpot Blog that we think fits the spot :
“Most of the rich and successful in America don’t give a fuck about this country, and as a result they make choices that will help them get more rich (like outsourcing) at the expense of our workers. There is no loyalty to America at the top — only the sad assumption that everyone could be where they were if they just tried, and an unwillingness to share what they’ve received.”
We just don’t understand how any elected congressperson could miss this speech. But we hear that a few of the grumpy ole’ party actually went to see a ball game.
Americans Can you imagine a football game being more important than Your Job During an Economic Crisis ?
Hot Damn !
“Show us what you got.”
Those members who announced that they will skip the speech are Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and Reps. Paul Broun, R-Ga., Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill. and Ron Paul, R-Texas [and Rep. Jeff Landry, R-New Iberia]…..
Unlike with Landry, who said skipping the House GOP meeting with the president was to avoid wasting his time being “lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt, ” Vitter took a much less strident approach, referring mainly to his love for the Saints.
“As a fanatic (Saints fan), I have my priorities,” Vitter joked.
Still, Norm Ornstein, the veteran political analyst for the American Enterprise Institute, said skipping a presidential speech “is just another example of the debasement of our politics and our institutions.”
“I simply cannot recall a time in the past when lawmakers openly gave the finger to the president of the United States on a huge issue like jobs,” Ornstein said. “It is frankly depressing.”
This is From My Tumblr Buddy Joe Who Says:
My emphasis, Yeah it’s bullshit like this that made me happy when the President brought up “the election is 14 months away.” By not even attending to listen to what the President has to say they are stating that they do not want to get anything done until a republican is in the White House.
They do not give a fuck about your suffering for the next 14 months.
To Us as Voters, The fact that they skipped out on what may well have been the most important speech and announcement of a Jobs Bill during their terms in office shows us that they are totally uninterested in the needs of their own employers; their constituents – The American People; The Folks Who Pay Their Salaries.
“Where are the jobs? That question is on the minds of millions of Americans who have lost jobs during the Great Recession. During this historically lean jobs creation period, finding a new job often requires thinking outside the box. And you can’t think much further outside the job search box than “workamping” — also known as work-camping.
“The RV’s kitchen slide broke in Eutaw, Alabama, which is in the middle of the middle of nowhere. We managed. We were stuck in the mud in Clarksdale, Mississipi during a launch party for the anthology, Delta Blues. The tow truck driver who pulled our rig out of the mud jackknifed it and broke out the pickup’s rear window. Guess I can add my broken wrist to the list of oopsies.”

This is a clipping of a few of the highlights of the Presidents speech tonight. We think it identifies the key areas that are in most need and will no doubt bring the least agreement from the Missing Ass Nutz.
“I realize that some of you have a different theory on how to grow the economy. Some of you sincerely believe that the only solution to our economic challenges is to simply cut most government spending and eliminate most government regulations.
Well, I agree that we can’t afford wasteful spending, and I will continue to work with Congress to get rid of it. And I agree that there are some rules and regulations that put an unnecessary burden on businesses at a time when they can least afford it. That’s why I ordered a review of all government regulations. So far, we’ve identified over 500 reforms, which will save billions of dollars over the next few years. We should have no more regulation than the health, safety, and security of the American people require. Every rule should meet that common sense test.
But what we can’t do – what I won’t do – is let this economic crisis be used as an excuse to wipe out the basic protections that Americans have counted on for decades.
I reject the idea that we need to ask people to choose between their jobs and their safety. I reject the argument that says for the economy to grow, we have to roll back protections that ban hidden fees by credit card companies, or rules that keep our kids from being exposed to mercury, or laws that prevent the health insurance industry from shortchanging patients. I reject the idea that we have to strip away collective bargaining rights to compete in a global economy.
We shouldn’t be in a race to the bottom, where we try to offer the cheapest labor and the worst pollution standards. America should be in a race to the top. And I believe that’s a race we can win.
In fact, this larger notion that the only thing we can do to restore prosperity is just dismantle government, refund everyone’s money, let everyone write their own rules, and tell everyone they’re on their own – that’s not who we are. That’s not the story of America.
Yes, we are rugged individualists. Yes, we are strong and self-reliant. And it has been the drive and initiative of our workers and entrepreneurs that has made this economy the engine and envy of the world.
But there has always been another thread running throughout our history – a belief that we are all connected; and that there are some things we can only do together, as a nation.
We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. But in the middle of a Civil War, he was also a leader who looked to the future – a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad; launch the National Academy of Sciences; and set up the first land grant colleges. And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set.
Ask yourselves – where would we be right now if the people who sat here before us decided not to build our highways and our bridges; our dams and our airports? What would this country be like if we had chosen not to spend money on public high schools, or research universities, or community colleges? Millions of returning heroes, including my grandfather, had the opportunity to go to school because of the GI Bill. Where would we be if they hadn’t had that chance?
How many jobs would it have cost us if past Congresses decided not to support the basic research that led to the Internet and the computer chip? What kind of country would this be if this Chamber had voted down Social Security or Medicare just because it violated some rigid idea about what government could or could not do? How many Americans would have suffered as a result?
…Every proposal I’ve laid out tonight is the kind that’s been supported by Democrats and Republicans in the past. Every proposal I’ve laid out tonight will be paid for. And every proposal is designed to meet the urgent needs of our people and our communities.
I know there’s been a lot of skepticism about whether the politics of the moment will allow us to pass this jobs plan – or any jobs plan. Already, we’re seeing the same old press releases and tweets flying back and forth. Already, the media has proclaimed that it’s impossible to bridge our differences. And maybe some of you have decided that those differences are so great that we can only resolve them at the ballot box.
But know this: the next election is fourteen months away. And the people who sent us here – the people who hired us to work for them – they don’t have the luxury of waiting fourteen months. Some of them are living week to week; paycheck to paycheck; even day to day. They need help, and they need it now.
I don’t pretend that this plan will solve all our problems. It shouldn’t be, nor will it be, the last plan of action we propose. What’s guided us from the start of this crisis hasn’t been the search for a silver bullet. It’s been a commitment to stay at it – to be persistent – to keep trying every new idea that works, and listen to every good proposal, no matter which party comes up with it.
Regardless of the arguments we’ve had in the past, regardless of the arguments we’ll have in the future, this plan is the right thing to do right now. You should pass it. And I intend to take that message to every corner of this country.
I also ask every American who agrees to lift your voice and tell the people who are gathered here tonight that you want action now. Tell Washington that doing nothing is not an option. Remind us that if we act as one nation, and one people, we have it within our power to meet this challenge.”

America Aren’t You Finally Ready To Get a Hand on Deez Nutz ?

We wonder if during the Grumps campaign stops they’ve seen this sign, or this story ?
Obama unveils American Jobs Act
US President Barack Obama has laid out a jobs package worth $447bn, staking his re-election hopes on a call for urgent action to revive the economy and challenging Republicans who have consistently opposed his initiatives.
Arguing his American Jobs Act before Congress on Thursday, the president said it would “jolt” America’s ailing economy – which is currently experiencing an unemployment rate of 9.1 per cent.
“It will create more jobs for construction workers, more jobs for teachers, more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for the long-term unemployed. It will provide a tax break for companies who hire new workers, and it will cut payroll taxes in half for every working American and every small business.
“It will provide a jolt to an economy that has stalled, and give companies confidence that if they invest and hire, there will be customers for their products and services,” said the president.
Describing the plan as bipartisan, Obama urged Congress to pass it without delay.
“There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation. Everything in here is the kind of proposal that’s been supported by both Democrats and Republicans – including many who sit here tonight. And everything in this bill will be paid for,” he said.
Surprisingly weak jobs data has heightened fears that the United States may be headed for another recession. The Federal Reserve is considering ways to bolster demand but has said the onus for recovery mainly lies with legislators who control spending.
We think our friends at Pantsless Progressive found the right response to all this bs that we saw from them GOP Nutz Tonight,
“But what we can’t do – what I won’t do – is let this economic crisis be used as an excuse to wipe out the basic protections that Americans have counted on for decades.
I reject the idea that we need to ask people to choose between their jobs and their safety. I reject the argument that says for the economy to grow, we have to roll back protections that ban hidden fees by credit card companies, or rules that keep our kids from being exposed to mercury, or laws that prevent the health insurance industry from shortchanging patients.
I reject the idea that we have to strip away collective bargaining rights to compete in a global economy.”
WE Agree With The President. Why Should Deez Nutz prevent us from living in a safe, working economy ? Why should deez nutz think that they have more priority, which they demonstrate by making decisions against the majority; than those who sit down and listen to plans to fix the mess left by these same NUTZ from their eight year long party.
This is the idiotic response statement made by Grumpy Ole’ Bad Manners John Boehner Tonite Following the Presidents Speech -
“House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after President Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress:
“American families and small businesses are hurting, and they are looking for the White House and Congress to seek common ground and work together to help get our economy back on track. Republicans have laid out a blueprint for economic growth and job creation – our Plan for America’s Job Creators – that focuses on one thing: removing government barriers to private-sector job growth.
“The proposals the President outlined tonight merit consideration. We hope he gives serious consideration to our ideas as well. It’s my hope that we can work together to end the uncertainty facing families and small businesses, and create a better environment for long-term economic growth and private-sector job creation.”
— Statement by Speaker Boehner on President Obama’s Joint Address to Congress (via Speaker.gov)In other words, he is saying that the House and Senate Republicans will vote down the American Jobs Act, regardless of whether they actually agree with it or not.
And people are seriously considering giving the Republicans the trigger of nuclear weapons and armed forces again? Please, for the love of Pete, don’t vote for any of these crazies.
