Obama's Debt

In what can only be called a blatant slap in the faces f every American citizen that has raised their hand to tell Washington to stop this frivolous spending...

Your delightful president,

Mr. Change... Mr. "Yes We Can!"...

Just told the American people, "Yes we can... Ignore you!"

How much longer can you people sit back while this happens? Our children won't even have a country at this rate...

Ahhh, there you go!
I can hear you now.

Look up Cloward-Piven strategy.
It's what Obama is doing to this country.

This constant going back to the cookie jar to sneak out the lunch money that was to be saved for the kids is getting out of hand. We're so screwed already the only thing left is to hit the reset button and start all over.

Obama oughta just take out a QUADrillion dollar loan and throw a kick ass block party. Yeah, that's the ticket: A month-long Woodstocky event headlined by Lady GaGa, Van Halen, LMFAO, and Justin Bieber - party favors gratis. That's what the world really needs IMO, a big frackin' party. Put the Muslims and Jews in a tent with a hookah and all the Lebanese they can smoke, and don't let them out (or let any pizza in) until they are all singing Kumbaya.

Yeah, if I were Emperor of the World, I'd solve some stuff.

I think it's about time a few million Americans head to Washington and remind the government who really has the power in this country.

But then again... The country is too busy watching terrible singers and Family Guy...

Think there may be an underlying reason for this, bring all the troops back get another 1.2 trillion then it's war with Iran it is so out in the open it's not funny bet it happens soon.

Why not make it...
One Quadrillion dollars! It is such an asinine amount I can't even wrap my head around it anymore.

It shows how they do things that literally make no rational sense and the unwashed masses (even the clean ones) simply either don't notice at all, or simply do nothing to effectively stop it. Yeah let's borrow 1.2 trillion more, hell, make it 5 trillion you wuss! Maybe 100 trillion would wake people up enough?

And here I thought it would make more sense to call for a solution to the debt crisis....

What was I thinking?

Is this the change we were promised? A change to the debt ceiling?

Meh. I am sick of this crap that both sides of the political fence are pulling.

"Hey, let's play the politics game while the country goes down the toilet!" "But won't the people get mad?" "Psh, who care?" *Maniacal laughter*

Obama/Congress gave Billions to the former Soviet Territory Georgia to build 130+ Hospitals.

America doesn't even have that many hospitals with beds for its Veterans in allll of the States.

Appears the battle plan to topple Russia and put Israel in charge of the world involves us giving mega Billions to the former Soviet Territories.....hence the need to increase the debt limit.

Speaking of ridiculous numbers...

We are about to hit 16.5 Trillion dollars in debt...

That is 1.65x10^13 in scientific notation...

Or

$16,500,000,000,000...

That is almost as much as the GDP for the entire European Union COMBINED!

We owe more money than a continent makes in a year...

World GDP

Just for those who don't know how to Google. . .



The methodology is known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy, and we can all be grateful to David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks for originally exposing and explaining it to us. He describes it as:


The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.


Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven were two lifelong members of Democratic Socialists of America who taught sociology at Columbia University (Piven later went on to City University of New York). In a May 1966 Nation magazine article titled "The Weight of the Poor," they outlined their strategy, proposing to use grassroots radical organizations to push ever more strident demands for public services at all levels of government.


The result, they predicted, would be "a profound financial and political crisis" that would unleash "powerful forces ... for major economic reform at the national level."

Obama is well on his way to making this a reality.

It fills me with such joy to see the masses here at ATS going bonkers over UFO pyramids and swimming dogs...

While this great nation burns to the f###'ng ground around them.

The military could show up with tanks and rifles blazing in an American neighborhood, and I can hear half you people saying, "Hold on, the play-offs are on!"

I think my time here may be coming to a close...

Begs a question of WHO will buy another 1.2 trillion dollars worth of US debt? The Chinese? I doubt it, maybe it is to lend to Iran for their new regimes rebuilding program after Israel and the US have bombed it to #, who can say

Will this get through your congress? After all the wrangling and back room deals that were needed to get through a rise in the debt ceiling last time I am not so sure it will be nice easy sailing for Barack O-bomb-a-lot

It would. That's why he's doing it a little bit (1 trillion
) at a time instead. It's called the boiled frog technique.

According to the article, he even wanted to do it on the sly while congress was sleeping...


Mr Obama originally intended to exercise his authority to raise the debt limit on December 30, but House and Senate leaders asked him to delay the move to allow lawmakers to consider it while they are back in session.
