The Government We Deserve

I MIGHT be able to trust one of the national ruling-class political parties to assertively represent my personal philosopies and political principles to the extent of perhaps 30%. And I'm hardly a radical "bomb-thrower". But the other national ruling-class political party seems to be more on the order of 5% acceptable to me. Sorry, ruling--class D.C.: These present only-two choices are not acceptable. I'll happily join in the movement to overthrow the leadership of whichever of the two national parties can be dragged closer to what many of us know what his great nation needs. Which natl. party - for example - will assure me that real-$ federal government spending will be forced LOWER next year?

And who is it, then, who is going to finally stop this dominating & damaging Prezzy?!? In theory, I suppose, there would be a national political party holding sufficient checks-&-balances Constitutional authority to stand up straight on its hind legs and say No. Or even shout: Hell NO!!! Anyone here think this national Republican party has the backbone to do anything like that? These #SpinelessWeasels ! If somehow our votes allow these New-Age Whigs to take control of the Senate too, then can we count on Speaker John Boehner and gang finally take assertive impeachment action? Insist that next year's federal real-$ spending is actually LOWER than this year's? Secure our national borders and just say No to foreigners here illegally? To repeal Obamacare? To get to the truth of IRS suppression? Uh huh .. I didn't think so. Must be some more-assertive action on our parts to "pursuade" our national French-Republican "leaders" to take direct action on our behalf ... and maybe not so much their own.
Yes, true, that's how it's set up to work, Julie. If no overpayment indicated on your fed. tax return - true, meaning no refund - then nothing there for O'Care to grab. Not sure why they set it up that way, almost as a loophole to benefit actual citizens. Maybe because that "shared-responsibility" b.s. was still not supposed to be seen as a tax increase at that point. Certainly easy enough for the ruling-class sleazes to change, though.

Yep. The same government drones who will soon be in full control of this nation's healthcare systems. With the health of your family in their claws. And - sorry - no alternatives for you. No recourse. No accountability.

Good morning, Derek. And Fritz. Who out here can express genuine confidence that this present Republican "leadership" is willing to actually demonstrate the spine to get up in this Prezzy's face even if the Senate is won? Hands? Diane Sawyer still does that nightly news thingy, right? Who believes these national GOP fools will be willing to stand strong once she makes that frowny face at them? What difference, at this point, is it going to make?
Indeed. Despicable people. Videos of this public treason should be playing already. Boldly lying to that mother in tears ...

Is anyone out there aware of what Oprah's reaction was? (Certainly not important enough to view the video myself, but one of you might have made that sacrifice for the greater good.)

Fox should recruit a committed-relationship pair of black lesbians, just to work anywhere in the organization. Imagine the entertainment value, watching liberals squirming out their venom. Perhaps a popular reality series. (Must be a clever/inappropriate title that some of you out there could suggest.)
A suggested research question for Mike Shedlock. Or to one of his loyal followers out here, someone who knows where to get historical work-force data and how to massage it. When one of the early negative effects of Obamacare was employers reducing some work hours to below 30 a week, that got me wondering about how that newly-lost productivity might be reflected in official government statistics. Or even - possibly - ignored. Combining those reduced hours for many still working with the uneasy decline in the workforce participation rate, there must be some genuine damage being done to this nation's general prosperity. What I would like to see: Long-term historical trend of average annual (or weekly) work HOURS per working-age ADULT. I'm thinking ages 18 to 65, say, but some other similar age range could be just as useful. For now, leave $-earnings out of the evaluation. Also not thinking about general population growth. Or capital investment. Simple: How much is the average American adult working now? And what's the trend? (Cannot be healthy.) Thank you.
