The “Sequester,” The Budget and Other Goodies

Filed under: Economics, Philosophy, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:37 AM (03:37)

Taking note of an article in The Weekly StandardReporter Asks Carney: Will Obama Cut Back on Lavish Vacations, Golf Trips?

So I guess a cut of 85,000,000,000[1] out of a budget of 3,800,000,000,000[1] really isn’t such a bad thing after all, is it? Maybe, just maybe . . . they could, you know, cut a bit more?

Dare I hope for such “slash and burn” legislation?

Never mind that no such budget has actually been passed by both U.S. House and U.S. Senate and been signed by Dear Leader Obama, as the U.S. Constitution supposedly requires?

Isn’t someone who was allegedly a “Constitutional law professor” supposed to notice things like these?

How is it that I, with ZERO formal schooling beyond the high school level in the law, the legislative process or the political process can notice this, but 535 people who allegedly swore to uphold and defend the Constitution blow it off without a second thought?

In my opinion, it would be worth it to pay Obama (and Biden, and Boehner, and the other 534 idiots) 1,000,000 a year, tax free, to do nothing but play golf all year around.

Just make sure that they understand that the deal is OFF the second any of them picks up any sort of writing implement or touches any sort of keyboard.


NOTES

  1. These numbers are ballpark wild-assed guesstimates, of course. As the cliche goes, “close enough for government work.”
  2.    

  3. I have a habit of using the null set symbol (“∅”) to represent Federal Reserve Notes as opposed to the “dollar sign” (“$”), because the dollar is supposed to be backed by gold or silver, where the Federal Reserve Note is redeemable upon government demand from yours and my life, liberty, property and pursuit of happiness.

Comments I’ve posted

  1. Re: Would You Invest in Pot?

    @mr_jin_tonic – The “liberal” Democrats need to own up to the fact that it was their fascist president (FDR) who started applying the Prohibition mentality towards marijuana at the federal level in 1937 with the Marijuana Tax Act. In that light, the games that the Obama Administration has been playing on the issue are on par with Democrats’ past behavior where drugs are concerned.

  2. Re: Tale of the Russian Rambo

    even in the small town in the US you could probably find a SWAT team to deal with such a situation

    Back in 1999, I was working a second job at a local gas station and was held up at gunpoint for a 12-pack of Budweiser (and warm Bud, at that!) by a 15-year-old with a revolver. After the kids left with his homeboy, I called Albuquerque PD (Albuquerque has a population of 550,000). It took me about 50 minutes just to get through to the police dispatcher via 9-1-1, then another 50 minutes for the officer to arrive on scene.

    @mtngirlsouth – I would only suggest not loaning him your copy of it, as you won’t get it back until he’s done coloring in it, if at all.
