The President’s Debt Commission

“Social Security is “a milk cow with 310 million
tits. It’s for the ‘lesser people’ of society.” ~~ Alan (Cat Food) Simpson.

“Yet no one can doubt President Bush’s support for our troops, or his love of country and commitment to our security.”~~~Barack Obama

The land of the boll weevil,
Where the laws are medieval,
Is callin’ me to come and nevermore roam.
I wanna go back to the southland,
That “ya’ll” and “hush-ma-mouth” land,
Be it ever so decadent,
There’s no place like home.
I Wanna Go Back To Dixie ~~~ Tom Lehrer

Well I’m going down
Down, down, down, down, down
I’m going down
Down, down, down, down, down
I’ve got my head out the window
And my big feet on the ground
She’s gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
She’s gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
I’ve got my head out the window
And my big feet on the ground
Going Down ~~~ Jeff Beck

[print_link] Old “Cat food” Simpson opened his cakehole the other day comparing Social Security to “a milk cow with 310 million tits” in a reply to Ashley Carson, executive director of the National Older Women’s League. BELOW (right) Alan Simpson, former senator from Wyoming. This type of reactionary scum abounds in the American political class, especially in the South and in states where the libertarian creed runs strong.  The question, as usual, is: Why does the Great Obama invariably choose mediocrities or enemies of the people to “serve the people”?  Is the man stupid, corrupt, or both?
.
Alan’s ramblings pissed off ladies and seniors from coast to coast. However, since Alan was a white Rethuglican and guilty as sin, he wasn’t fired from his appointment like black and innocent Shirley Sherrod was.
.
Alan will continue to scheme with fellow traveler Erskine Bowles in secret meetings behind closed doors to figure out ways of stealing all the lovely Social Security money. Thus sending grand pa and grand ma off to a “Happy Camps”(tm) for a diet of sawdust bread until they can take their turns in the “showers!” As Alan said it really doesn’t matter because Social Security is for those “lesser people!” That’s you and I folks!
.
You’ll recall that Erskine was Slick Willie’s point man for destroying Social Security. Erskine teamed up with another great thinker Newt Gingrich back in 1997 for a plan that would have privatized Social Security with the retirement funds placed into the stock market. Gosh that would have worked out just dandy for the seniors, huh? These are
the folks that head up and were appointed by Barry for his debt reduction commission. They’re handy so Barry can throw up his hands and plead he’s just following this blue ribbon panels suggests to save America! Oh, and folks if you buy that, you might be interested in buying this bridge I own in Brooklyn, it’s a major moneymaker!
.
There are 18 members on this panel, most all are a little to right of Darth Vader and were drawn from Big Business with a couple of exceptions, i.e., token liberals for window dressing and hence there is little chance that these captains of industry will recommend
tax hikes for the wealthy and import fees for American jobs sent over seas to some slave shops. I’m willing to bet serious money that they won’t recommend ending our needless, useless, imperial war crimes in the Middle East and elsewhere! Nor will they recommend spending money to put folks back to work, which with the increased taxes from more people working would do a whole lot more for debt reduction than stealing from
programs like Social Security. Social Security and Medicare are programs that I might mention were already paid for by their recipients, whose funds have been stolen for the last 50 years to pay for imperial wars of aggression, Congressional salary raises, pork barrel projects on “Bridges to Nowhere” by draining the funds in the Social Security and
Medicare accounts!
.
So will the committee come out with their recommendations before the November elections giving the Con-gress a chance to vote on this scheme and then face the people’s righteous wrath at the voting booth? What do you think? I think that there is not a
snowball’s chance in hell of that happening. I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t announce their decision until after January 20th when the Rethuglicans take back the house and make it just that much easier to screw the old folks and America.

Before you ask the question you already know the answer, don’t you? No I didn’t watch Barry’s speech, I read it online as doing it that way detaches my outrage more so then when Barry is lying right in my face. As political bullshit goes it was pretty much par for the course. That is to say, it left much of what was true and important out, was full of
lies, half truths, sound and fury, while signifying nothing!
.
For example, Barry said:
Operation Iraqi Freedom is over, and the Iraqi people now have lead responsibility for the security of their country. When the truth of the matter was that “Iraqi Freedom”
ended on March 19th 2003 and may not return for 100 years! Barry praised Bush instead of having him indicted for war crimes, crimes against humanity and hundreds of acts of treason and sedition. Of course, to do so would have left Barry open to many of
those same charges as he adopted and expanded many of Bush’s acts of treason and war crimes as his own.
.
As to what the future horrors hold for Iraq, Barry said without the slightest bit of tongue in cheek and with a perfectly straight face:
.
This new approach reflects our long-term partnership with Iraq — one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect. When did Iraq ask to be our partner in anything? I must have missed that in our search of those WMDs? Our only interest in Iraq
is to stay there until their oil runs out and they better respect that or we’ll turn lose those 50,000 trainers and the 100,000 soldiers of fortune against the few Iraqis that are still alive until they do respect it!
.
One other highlight is that Barry gave that 4400 number of Americans “who have given their lives in Iraq.” The key bit there is “in Iraq.” The real number is about 19 times that amount but they died after leaving Iraq, they died on the airplanes that flew them towards Germany. Many were brain dead but kept “alive” on heart/lung machines until the plane left the runway! Or they died in German hospitals or died after they got back to America from their wounds that they got in Iraq but didn’t die “in Iraq!” You didn’t
really think that Bush’s blackout of arriving coffins had anything to do with respect for the dead did you? It was to keep an accurate count of the bodies out of the press!

You can read this little song and dance, if you have the stomach for it, at the White
House’s site.
