Subject: BS: Obama's Christmas gift to the needy
From: Songwronger

Obama prepared to drop jobless benefits as part of budget deal

The White House said Friday it would agree to a budget deal with the Republicans that excludes an extension of federal benefits for the long-term unemployed, which are scheduled to expire at the end of the month.

By the administration's own figures, allowing the federally-funded extended benefit program to expire will end cash assistance for 1.3 million people immediately after the holidays and impact an additional 3.6 million people in the first half of 2014.

With this cruel and callous act, Obama and the Democratic Party are prepared to join with the Republicans in condemning nearly 5 million people and their families to destitution. In prior recessions, emergency unemployment benefits, beyond the standard aid offered by the states, have never been terminated when unemployment remained at such high levels as those prevailing today....

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/12/07/obam-d07.html

Are we not fortunate to have such a caring leader? He kills with starvation, not a sword, so he is humane. And in his humanity he has already offered to aid us by cutting social security and Medicare:

Amid government shutdown, Obama signals cuts to Social Security, Medicare

US President Barack Obama restated his support for cutting Social Security and Medicare in a press conference Tuesday, reassuring congressional Republicans of his willingness to agree to these cuts if the Republicans vote to increase the government's debt limit....

By the way.....if the story is true, Social Security only goes up about 11/2%...minimum wages go up about 20%, which means those who are on S.S. lose out due to the inflation the minimum raise is going to incur, unemployment gets cut(or not extended), people are being forced to buy insurance.....not good for the people....who are out of work, benefits, and S.S. is not keeping up with inflation......

....has anybody seen those shovel ready jobs???

Goofballupagus, Songwronger is totally biased against President Obama, and if he could find some arch-conservative fundamentalist website claiming that they had Scriptural proof that Obama is the Anti-Christ and that Armageddon is imminent, he would post THAT.

THAT IS NOT NEWS, that is someone's half-assed, biased opinion!

True, I have worked as a broadcast news editor and director. And I learned how to determine whether or not a supposed news source was biased or reliable. It's not that difficult for anyone with a functioning brain.

But anyone with as much as a nursery school education should be able to smell pure, unadulterated excrement when they encounter it.

OK, now that the flatulence is out of the way....

Obama SAID he is willing to cut off unemployment benefits. He SAID he is willing to cut social security and Medicare.

I even gave you reportage from the World Socialist Website on that FACT.

The problem is, your guy Obama isn't what he promised he would be. He claims to be a populist, but he serves the monied interests. You "liberals" know you've been screwed and tattooed by Obama, and the only thing you know how to do is ask for more.

Break free of your conditioning. It's easy to do. The only thing holding your back is the opinion of the herd. Obama lies to you daily. Fuck him and his kind. Fuck the Bushes. Fuck the Clintons. They all lie, 24/7. They count on your fear. Grow a pair. Resist.

For what it's worth, the World Socialist Website is Marxist. They support workers' causes. In doing that, they are honor-bound to point out the fascist tendencies of both the Democratic and Republican parties in America. Like myself, they gave Obama the benefit of the doubt at the beginning of his first term, but it quickly became apparent he was just more of the same, serving the 1%.

I'm a moderate, with FDR leanings. Moderate in America nowadays means fascist (like Obama's National Socialism), but I like the more leftist FDR style of rule. Obama's doing what he can to dismantle FDR's New Deal. While Democrats think he's upholding it. Power of the government-controlled media.

The good news is that young people aren't buying it anymore. The 18-24 age group is becoming virulently anti-Obama. They see the scam of Obamacare for what it is (buckets of money to the insurance companies, no insurance for the young), and Obama's losing that demographic. Maybe already has, in just two short weeks. And he won't get it back. Kids don't have as much invested in the system, and they call bullshit when they see it. So Obama's entering his phase of decrepitude. Hopefully he'll resign. Or overdose on crack.

It seemed a noble enough 'cause'...you know, our 'national security'....but all along it was to save the dollar, and give as many of them to the 'evil empire' Halliburton.....and before that, it was Clinton, with another 'noble cause' reversing Glass-Steagal to help his mega-corp buddies, while under the guise of making home buying 'affordable', (yuk yuk, jokes on you!), and Papa Bush stuffing the pockets of Bechtel, while 'saving' us from another desert threat.......not to mention the AIG bailout, which our present 'savior' voted for.....hmm...ya' think he's still helping out those insurance corps, with the 'noble cause' rap???.....but our 'so-called liberal' buddies can't see it....because they only see that he is a (sorta) black prop puppet of the same ol' shit!....and if people don't like his policies, it's only because their racist, right????

You fucking suckers!

Oh, and don't forget the noble cause of Vietnam, with its 'Golden Triangle' to 'protect'...and Central America, who Reagan referred to the Contras as, "...the moral equivalent to our founding fathers."..(I think he meant, "...the moral equivalent to the Mafia.")...but it didn't sound noble enough.....when there was so much Coke to sell.

Republicans?? Democrats??...That's for you guys. Representing corporations and bankers is what politicians are about. Lying to the public to pull it off is what the last few administrations are about. Low level political hacks/wannabe activists, are those deluded devotees who carry on the lies, justify the lies, and sometimes even believe the lies. This is self evident right before your very eyes!..whether it is Bush's devotees, Clinton's devotees or Obama's devotees....but the 'rub' is when you find out that YOU were one of the dupes, who bought into the corruption cycle...(It's all tied into 'moral turpitude', Don).

A PERFECT example of it is the thread "RE: BS: So who's signed up for Obamacare?"..Note the exchange between Don Firth and 'Nobody in Particular'(NiP) ...'NiP's only real objection was that Obama lied to promote the ACA....and look at the treatment he/she received, and accusations and spinning into the land of contortions Don went through, while embarrassing the whole of Mudcat's posters!...but the simple fact remains, that Obama lied, and the insurance companies now have a law forcing people to buy their shit, at a higher price, that they don't need, want...or for that matter, even get! ..I was away from the computer for a few weeks, but when I got back on, I was astounded when I read the thread...and NO, Don and Ebbie...NiP and I are not the same people...I don't think I could have been that polite and patient while dealing with Mr. Turpitude, that long!..while he bold faced lied his way to the end of the thread!!!...and when he wasn't lying, he was justifying Obama's lying!!
...not that I want to pick on Don, but he is a perfect example, in that (among other) threads, of how corrupt politicians hide behind 'noble causes' while forcing crooked agendas!!
READ the thread..it'll blow you away, as to the tactics of how bullshit gets spread!...NiP had government healthcare, he/she even called for people to make constructive suggestions..he/she had no issues with the ACA bill, other than the deception used to promote it...and look how they threw every bullshit tactic out of the 'so-called liberals' playbook at him/her!!

Suggestion:..Get a fucking life!

How long have I been harping on about 'corruption'??....five years or so??....How many times have you seen the words, 'so-called liberals'??? I hope it's starting to sink in, that some of you have been had. Some of you actually THOUGHT that Obama was really a 'progressive liberal'....how else could he have got traction to pull off one of the most massive scams in U.S. history????...well maybe he had some competition..Clinton, Glass-Steagal and NAFTA, Bush with Desert Storm and "Read MY Lips....(blah blah blah...), and before that, Bush/Clinton with Mena, Arkansas, gun and drug running with the Contras, then Iran/Contra...Oh, and Bechtel and Halliburton, Blackwater and WMD's..JUST FOR STARTERS!...and all these had global ramifications.....while the political hack/devotees prattle on, on how 'they know better' and everyone else is stupid!.....Oh, and one more detail......those things I listed are just a fraction of the bullshit that represents America to the rest of the world!!!
NiP was dead on, as was Songwronger in that thread. (I bailed earlier because I was involved in some serious music stuff).
Personally, I don't give a flying fuck about politics one way or the other. It's too confusing keeping track of all the bullshit that they stir up everybody with...let alone what they are really doing, behind the curtain....who they are shafting, and who their crony capitalist ventures are out to screw..THIS TIME!

Meanwhile, the Rockefellers think that the Chinese have the ideal model....FOR YOU!!!..not them...I wonder how they'll package that happy horse shit.

...as for me....I'm not with the party..I'm with the band.
It's all clear to me.....I'm not the one deluding myself with 'noble causes'...and advising others that the new con, is the path for the future...and all "us wise people know what's better for all the peasants".

If that were the case, play folk music.

Alzo Sprake ignoramus.

To simply say that "all politicians are corrupt!" and condemn anyone else who endeavors to work in the political system to change things is very easy.

And the lazy coward's way to avoid the effort of getting involved.

It IS POSSIBLE for an individual to bring about substantial changes.

Goofball, have you ever actually worked on a political campaign? No, I didn't think so. Well, I've worked on several.

I helped pass two important and far-reaching environmental issues in Washington State that helped diminish pollution in the State and save the tax-payers a vast amount of money, both in taxes and utility bills.

I also spoke out so eloquently at a precinct meeting that I was asked to become a delegate to the State Convention. I was unable to accept, but I made a good, strong point that later became enacted into law.

I also worked on the campaign of a candidate for the Seattle City Council who, although he didn't win, garnered enough votes to make the incumbent change his policies.

So, Wrongsonger--and Goofball--what are YOU doing, other than saying "They're all the same!" (which they are NOT) and "A pox on both their houses!" ???

And flicking your usual snot-balls at people who are actually doing something in the world to improve things?

Because of my actions a few years back, in cooperation with other like-minded people, the citizens of the State of Washington are paying lower taxes than they would have to pay if the measure I worked on hadn't gone through

And we'd have several expensive nuclear power plants in the state, costing us much more for electrical power than our current CLEAN hydropower, and cranking out tons of nuclear waste that no one seems to know what to do with.

And (this will be of special interest to you) one of the candidates whom I campaigned for was instrumental in the passage of Washington State's new same-sex marriage law.

Why don't you just take your jar of Vaseline, grease up your whole body, and slide smoothly off the end of nearest pier? Do the whole world a favor.

GFS: A gift for the needy. Just got a "free" flask from the Drambuie company as a Christmas gift. It looks sort of cheesy, but if you come to the house I'll give it to you. The wife thinks it may be hazardous to my health.

Nah! Goofball is more the Thunderbird wine type. Often seen being drunk (!) by those wine connoisseurs in back alleys, leaning against Dumpsters. Best drunk straight from the bottle still wrapped in the paper bag.

I am not too sure what focus you use on the world Mr."WrongSong?"

However, all of the USA media are reporting an even greater extension of unemployment benefits.

Whitehouse Press Release

Move on over... there is plenty of slop in the public trough for us all.

Regardless of what happens with unemployment benefits, Obama SAID he's willing to cut them. And he said he's willing to cut Medicare and Social Security.

Those positions are supposed to belong to the opposition party.

Obama is a hypocrite and he serves the monied interests, same as his "opposition."

Gargoyle, I read your link, however it only describes the current situation, and has an argument for the extension....but it does not say that the extension is a done deal. Songwronger's link was to the socialist web site, reporting that somehow they are privy to the outcome, which says that the WH gave in and folded on the matter.
today on the news, it sounded like there's going to be a compromise. I didn't get all the details, but it sounded like a 'give and take', but I didn't catch the status of the unemployment extensions. Ask Don...he'll make it up if he doesn't know for sure..and you'll probably like it....I think.

GfS

P.S. I don't drink, but rarely...and it better be good!

Wouldn't that be a kick in the ass...Songwronger posts a link from a Socialist site....while the White House's link is just more smoke and mirrors.....why this should surprise anyone shows you just how far out of touch their 'reality' is.....but, of course, they think you're stupid, and they know what's good for you!!!!

Smoke and mirrors? Maybe. But I doubt if it's that simple. I've little doubt that Obama made a good pitch for the extension.

But it got lost in the political world of 'compromise'. I suspect Don Firth is right when he says

"Obama seems to be trying his best to reassemble it (FDR's New Deal) again, but the Republicans are hell-bent on trying to prevent him from doing it"

And I think songwronger's also right.......he's sold out a bunch of needy people by signaling his agreement to this cuts.

Personally I wish he weren't such a 'politician' and that he were willing to really stand up for what he purports to believe in.

But I'm not party to all the details. It would be interesting to hear from somebody who has more information about exactly what happened.

Larry the Radio Guy: "Personally I wish he weren't such a 'politician' and that he were willing to really stand up for what he purports to believe in."

..and what is that????
The guy has lied so much, who can tell???

I think you'd have a better 'clue' if you knew who he was Really working for.....as the song goes,
"The voice of deception has uneven rhythms,

The last post was mine.

SPEAKING OF WHICH:
According to this, unemployment figures went WAY down

But according to this..something is all bullshit!

So the confusion is because of more lies about the figures.....and neither 'side'(?) is doing or saying diddly-squat, which leads me to once again allude....it's all showbiz, and they're in it together!..and once again, the people including yourselves, are being duped BIG TIME.

Don would approve........except he doesn't know squat, either!

Are you alluding that a "cheap crystal balls from WalMart", is more accurate than White House press releases??
Your problem is that you seem to base most of your 'opinions' on bold face lies..and then personally attack those who don't buy into your bullshit, parroted or otherwise.

Truth is, you should have just stuck to music.

Now back to the issue at hand...

Songwronger's original post and topic of the thread was: "By the administration's own figures, allowing the federally-funded extended benefit program to expire will end cash assistance for 1.3 million people immediately after the holidays and impact an additional 3.6 million people in the first half of 2014.

With this cruel and callous act, Obama and the Democratic Party are prepared to join with the Republicans in condemning nearly 5 million people and their families to destitution. In prior recessions, emergency unemployment benefits, beyond the standard aid offered by the states, have never been terminated when unemployment remained at such high levels as those prevailing today....

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/12/07/obam-d07.html

Are we not fortunate to have such a caring leader? He kills with starvation, not a sword, so he is humane. And in his humanity he has already offered to aid us by cutting social security and Medicare:

Amid government shutdown, Obama signals cuts to Social Security, Medicare. "

Guess what???........HE IS CORRECT!!

To which, these are some of the replies that the idiot-lugs responded to him:

"Goofballupagus, Songwronger is totally biased against President Obama, and if he could find some arch-conservative fundamentalist website claiming that they had Scriptural proof that Obama is the Anti-Christ and that Armageddon is imminent, he would post THAT.

THAT IS NOT NEWS, that is someone's half-assed, biased opinion!

True, I have worked as a broadcast news editor and director. And I learned how to determine whether or not a supposed news source was biased or reliable. It's not that difficult for anyone with a functioning brain.

But anyone with as much as a nursery school education should be able to smell pure, unadulterated excrement when they encounter it.

Flunked out of nursery school, did you? That explains a lot about you!"

Actually, if some of you weren't so governed by lies and deception, and then go on promoting more lies and deception, you'd think you'd be thanking Songwronger for telling you the truth accurately. After all, how can you know what the fuck is really going on when your idiot opinions are based on a long series of lies and deceptions???

Oh!...Now that you've been shown to have been clearly 'in error', (polite-speak for 'full of shit') let's resort to personal attacks, on the order of the 'so-called liberal' playbook of avoiding a discussion aiming to get to the truth....truth...you know?...truth??

Maybe someone should explain what that is.
