Your Turn

Tell them it's about the spending. Taxing the rich more takes care of less than 8 percent of the problem.

***Update: I realized that I could make this even easier; cut and paste:

It's the spending stupid.

Stop Thinking That

Just in case any of you were thinking, "Maybe Barack Obama would 
have made a good looking woman in the 1920's," well, stop thinking that.

It's a Good Thing

It's probably good that he became president because I'd never let 
him work on my car, diagnose my shoulder pain, or do my taxes. 
And, as you can see, he would have made a scary looking woman.

Stock Market

Just quickly: the market was up today and many were saying it was because the President addressed the fiscal cliff, and the need to avoid it. I must say, I'm amazed. It's one thing for largely uninformed voters to be taken in, but I would have expected the big brains on Wall Street to be a little bit more savvy. 

Today we have Obama saying, "I want to be reasonable and come to a bipartisan solution." That's just him, setting himself up as the reasonable guy. It's just words. Part two is: "Well, remember I was the reasonable guy, but these guys are extremists. I was even going to overlook their racism but they won't compromise."

***Update: For those of you too young to know:

"tax hike now, spending cuts later" = "tax hike now, The End"

Whenever politicians promise to take their medicine later, they're lying. "No, but this time we really mean it" is also a lie.

Obama is Saving Money Already

The administration has issued a contract to supply red ink for 
the second Obama term. "We're realizing significant savings 
buying it all at once like this," said UN ambassador Susan 
Rice, "And some people say TV wrestling isn't real, but it is. 
I once had a dog who could stand on his head."

Then and Now

We all love those pictures where you try to recreate an old photo decades later, right?

Benghazi in Under a Minute

Look, why don't we state the obvious. Susan Rice knew her "violent movie review" Benghazi explanation was a crock of poo. But she was told what to say by Obama, indirectly probably. She's an employee, doing what she was told to do.

It's a little bit silly for the media to pretend that GOP opposition to Rice is racist. But it's also silly to pretend the Benghazi fairy tale came from anyone except Obama. Now the question is: is the Obama administration the author of this fictional racist motive because it wants to distract from its authorship of the fictional Benghazi explanation?

Question two is: when can we stop with the fiction and address our real economic problems? (without fiction)

Watch It and You're Done

Well, watch it and you're halfway done. This is only part one of the best Just for Laughs of 2012. I know, you say, "But that's two hours long, you do realize I've got TPS reports due, don't you?" Yes, yes, but trust me, it's more efficient this way.

Who was the comedian, Stephen Wright?, who said, "I got a new dog. I walked him completely across the country, from east to west, and back. When we got back home I hung up the leash and said, 'There. You're done.'"

What I'm Getting the Wife for Christmas

That's right, I'm giving her a picture of a car with a bow on it.

Things are so much easier in the age of digital images. She might not be getting this if I had to go to the expense of printing it out on real paper.

Some People

Some people have way too much construction paper and time on their hands. Sometimes that works out well for all of us.

Cute Just Because

I know we just did cute, but I've sort of been on autopilot. The election was a big disappointment. (I know, I know, "disappointment" is a racial code word to Democrats) So let me just blurt it out: "The disappointment won."

So I've been trying to imagine how the economy can absorb the hidden tax that is Obamacare. Or how the workforce can absorb the shift to part time status for workers who should be, and need to be, full time. I can see another recession on the horizon. And I can see the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) blaming Republicans if we stand firm on the "2% tax."

The $80 billion that the tax represents is a small fraction of what we would need to counteract the drag of Obamacare and the other Obamadrains on this economy, but not giving it to them would be giving them a pass on this whole ugly Obamamess.

So now I'm just psyching myself up for another rough 4 years. We'll get through it, but in the meantime, cute:

Fashion Police are Racist

Racial Code Words

I'm going to have to ask for a list, because racial code words now seem to include everything in the Miriam Webster except for "cold", "tangerine", and "shoe lace":

Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., told CNN on Tuesday that some Republican claims that Rice is "incompetent" may be racial in nature.

"These are code words," Clyburn said, adding that "these kinds of terms that those of us — especially those of us who were born and raised in the South -- we've been hearing these little words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them."

I guess it goes without saying that socialist, communist, and Freemason are now racial code words.

But here's the other thing. Is Susan Rice actually a person of color? Really? Because I didn't think so until they brought it up. In the summer months, I'm darker than her.

James Clyburn is just wrong about "incompetent" being an code word in the South. But he probably considers "just wrong" even worse, so I'll shut up now.

The Also-Hug

The also-hug is also known as the hug assist, auxiliary hug, and Portuguese tag along.

AP says Obama asked for Buddhist prayers on the budget deal. Probably something along the lines "Oh great mandala grant me a way to sabotage the budget talks and make it look like the Republicans fault, and also thank you for the opportunity to meet with Hillary and make sure that she doesn't blame the White House for pressure to change the Benghazi intel although we all know that's what happened. Amen"

Back to School

You've probably heard about Hillsdale College's free courses on the U.S. Constitution. I put off looking into it because, hey, it's the Constitution, we learned about that in middle school. Just ask me, it goes "We the people in order to establish blah, blah, something or other, blah... " and like that.

But I had to listen to some of the course to learn how much I didn't know about the Constitution. I'm now a college kid again. You might want to look into it too. It's more interesting than you'd think. Plus, it's free.

Over the Cliff

The Thelma and Louise solution was to make them bobble heads. (which some would argue is redundant) You still have to clickabiggen to see their faces.

We're heading for some pretty poor options here. Obama is supposedly noodling out what to do about the fiscal cliff. So for help he turns to Al Sharpton and other "leaders of civil rights and civic organizations." Um-hum. OK, is it because they're so well versed in economic theory? Let me go out on a limb and say they are not.

Mightn't this meeting be about going after those Republicans when they balk at raising taxes on the rich? Wouldn't that be in Al Sharpton's wheelhouse? Isn't his number one talent rabble-rousing?

So that's the way it's going to go. Obama will say the theoretical $80 billion/year that he wants to get from "rich folk" would solve our problems. And he's counting on MSNBC to give you that impression; even though $80 billion taken from a $1.2 trillion/year deficit still leaves you with a $1.12 trillion/year deficit.

$ 1,200,000,000,000 deficit
- $ 80,000,000,000 rich-guy doing more than his share tax hike
$ 1,120,000,000,000 utopia achieved!

Now the question is: Can a bunch of community organizers, La Raza activists, and talk show loud mouths maumau the American people into accepting that faulty math? Sadly, this last election shows us that the public responds well to demonetization. The hosts at MSNBC will be so concerned about the 6 or 7% we're not getting from "the rich" that they won't ask questions about why Obama hasn't done a thing with the other 93 or 94% of the yearly deficit.

Obama would be happy to drive us into the canyon of debt just so long as he's got someone to blame it on. I also think that if we stand firm on not raising taxes, he'll have someone to blame it on. Not rightly, no. We won't have economic collapse because we didn't tax the rich enough. But that's what Obama will claim. And he's lining up his professional victims and briefing Pravda West.

I don't know where we go from here.
