Why am I not surprised that Ruling Class apparatchiks John Boehner and Eric Cantor are outraged (!) over the disclosure that the NSA is spying on Americans.
Boehner said there were adequate safeguards for the NSA programs and that the civil liberties of Americans were “absolutely” being protected.
Thank you Johnny. You have shown your true colors.
Given enough eyeballs, the NSA is fucked.
You have already lost their consent; you just don’t realize it, yet.
So, when you do, what will you do?
Adm. Painter: What’s his plan?
Jack Ryan: His plan?
Adm. Painter: Russians don’t take a dump, son, without a plan.
So, if the plan is to use a Union President to communicate policy to the IRS, at what other agency is this plan being used?
You can sow doubt; it will no longer take root.
You can argue, but we are done listening.
You are seen for what you are, we no longer doubt that you are the evil.
You presume to govern; we no longer consent to your rule
You are the Ruling Class;we are the Country Class.
You are fucked.
I think the Ruling-Class Republicans will do what they have been doing since 2010–embrace and extend. They will embrace the Tea Party outrage, but then drag it out and extend it enough that Tea Party interests–constitutional interests–are not address. See Fast and Furious, Obamacare, Open Borders, Spending, sound money….
With the evil of tyrannical government now there for everybody to see, and with the malfeasance of the Ruling Class in supporting that government, the rational choice will be a third party. That is the Tea-Party.
The infrastructure to build a true political infrastructure is already in place. Its major voices: Palin, Paul, Cruz are articulate, principled and popular (in contrast to Karl Rove, Boehner, McConnnel and now Rubio)
I hope I am wrong. I hope that the Ruling-Class Republicans wake up and smell the tyranny. I hope that Boehner appoints a special committee and blogs open borders bills coming from the Senate. I hope Rubio smells the evil and filibusters the gang-of-eight bill. I hope Issa has Holder arrested for contempt, I hope the house defunds obamacare. Experience has shown that political hope is misplaced.
Honest Americans–Constitutionalists–will place their political hopes in honest brokers.
Dude puts it much better than I ever have or could. Well played and I concur.
MaxedOutMama I Want To Bear Richard Fisher’s Cognitive Children relays a simple truth as told by the Dallas Fed.
My team at the Dallas Fed and I are confident this simple treatment to the complex problem and risks posed by TBTF institutions would be the most effective treatment. Think about it this way: At present, 99.8 percent of the banking organizations in America are subject to sufficient regulatory or shareholder/market discipline to contain the risk of misbehavior that could threaten the stability of the financial system. Zero-point-two percent are not..
And that is how we beat these bastards. Obama, Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, Bernanke, Geitner, Shumer, McCain, …pick any of these Ruling Class schmucks and ask yourself, ‘How Do I Hurt Them’.
Its easy, put your fingers in their cash drawer; they lose it, every time. I mean they FREAKING LOSE IT when somebody touches ‘their’ money. Its a blast to watch their world wither beneath them as the source of their power is removed.
