My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

America and the Fiscal Cliff

Well folks, it seems as though we, as a nation, are heading for the big fiscal cliff all the politicians have been preaching about since last year.  You see, this mess is of their own making simply because they did not have the cojones to solve the problem during the last session.  They came up with this bright idea to “pass the buck” or “kick the can down the road” so that they would not have to do their job and make the tough decisions.  They thought that if they made the consequences so bad, then the next session would have to get it solved; or, the automatic cuts to defense and tax increases on the general populace would take effect automatically and that it would make it easier to decide on a plan of action.  Well here we are and those idiots still can’t make it happen.

If you will allow me, I’ll try to explain what is and has been going on in the meetings between Speaker Boehner and the President.  The speaker agreed two days after the election to the terms of revenue that the President spent two years campaigning  for all over the country.  The speaker proposed to raise the revenue by removing deductions on the higher income folks.  The President had asked for $800 billion; but when the speaker agreed, the President changed and said he wanted $1.6 trillion.  Folks, that is double what he had wanted.  Where I come from that is called dishonest and the person behind the change would be called “a dishonest SOB”.  Of course, when it comes to this President, that’s a way of life.  Think of it this way:  you want to by a house, and the person is asking 100K, and after you and the wife decide and make an offer he says, “If they will pay 100K then they must want the deal so now I want 110K.”  Would you even want to offer 110K? Because, he will then want 120K.  President O’liar did not go up a meer 10K he want up double.  This is the main reason the deal has not been made; plus, the fact that the President has offered no cuts in the entitlements to help us recover from this economic mess.  We should demand at least 2 dollars cut for every dollar of increased revenue.

You are going to hear on the news from the dishonest press that O’liar is blaming the House for this impasse; but, do not for a moment believe what they will try to sell.  This is the President playing politics with your lives and finances.  This man is a committed liar and is the most dishonest president of all times.  This man has no problem looking you straight in the face and telling you something that he knows, you know, is not true.  He would “go climb a tree to tell a lie, rather than stand on the ground in the shade and tell the truth”.  A liar is just as bad as a thief and neither can be trusted.

You see, by letting us go over the cliff, he gets the huge cuts in the military that the democrats have always wanted and large tax increases on everyone to pay for all the goodies he promised during his campaign, all the while blaming the GOP.  Do not take my word for everything; do your homework.

My Ol’ Dad always said, “Common Sense says, A liar will steal you blind and a thief will lie to you”.  This president qualifies as both; so hang on, it will be a bumpy ride!
