I have a treat for you. Do you remember when I used to award the FG award for the shittiest writing of the week? Well I found a winner tonight. Not only is this piece full of ridiculous and illogical conclusions- it is the whiniest piece of writing I have read all year.
I am not the least bit surprised that Robert Reich wrote this. How do people like Reich get jobs? And more importantly- how in the hell do they keep them? This dude stays busy. I forgot that he was once the Secretary of Labor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Reich
I just had to throw this in from his wiki bio. In 2004, he published Reason, a book on how liberals can forcefully argue for their position in a country increasingly dominated by what he calls "radcons", or radical conservatives. Dominated by radcons?? WTF is he talking about?? We are a country dominated by drooling statists and moonbats...we've seen how well that's been working out for us.
This is what happens when you take the credit card away from the moonbats. They howl like banshees and blame everyone but themselves. Now I clipped this piece from the moonbat mother ship, Huffington Post. It pays to know what our unconscious enemy is up to. Now here's the link...click here while I run into the bathroom and get a towel to clean the vomit off my keyboard. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-reich/why-sp-has-no-business-do_b_920348.html
Or if you care to, read more of Reich's masterful conclusions here: http://robertreich.org/
Reich whines about the timing of the S&P downgrade- I guess apparently because he was not consulted. Just when is a good time for a downgrade? Had the downgrade occurred next year during the height of the presidential campaign- Reich would have been even more upset. The reality? The moonbats thought a downgrade would never happen.
Reich complains that we are paying our bills, so why the downgrade? Oh really, Robert? Adding a trillion and a half worth of debt, year after year after year, is paying the bills? Geezus, did any of you moonbats ever take a math class or better yet, pass one?
Tea Party Republicans holding the nation hostage? This is where Reich and his fellow kleptocrats completely leave the rails. They spend, spend, spend and then when we try to take away their credit card they whine like little girls. But blaming responsible Tea Party lawmakers for doing what they were elected to do? That used to be called responsive government Mr. Reich. They were trying to do what we asked them to do. Ain't that rich? The statists who shit canned the best bill, the President who played obstructionist and you blame the Tea Party? Wow. Really, Robert? Like it matters now anyway.
Let me end with this last piece of pitiful commentary from Reich.
"Pardon me for asking, but who gave Standard&Poor’s the authority to tell America how much debt it has to shed, and how? If we pay our bills, we’re a good credit risk. If we don’t, or aren’t likely to, we’re a bad credit risk. When, how, and by how much we bring down the long term debt — or, more accurately, the ratio of debt to GDP — is none of S&P’s business."
Pardon me for mentioning this Robert, but I never gave any of those consumer credit reporting agencies the authority to disclose how I pay my bills and to whom. Or what my debt to income ratio is. But I'll be damned if they don't do it anyway. They give that info to other creditors. And unlike the United States government Robert, sometimes the bank doesn't extend credit to me. Sometimes these banker bastards even have the audacity to tell me how to clean up my credit report. Like that's any of their business! If only I had a Federal Reserve Bank of my own...my problems would be over.
Reich summed up the whole S&P argument in the third line of that paragraph. "If we don’t (pay our bills) or aren’t likely to, we’re a bad credit risk." We ARE a bad credit risk Robert. That's the truth, no matter how adamantly you disagree. Apparently you are still of the opinion that we can pay that 17 trillion. Yet we haven't and we can't. If we could, we wouldn't be going in the hole another 1.6 trillion in this fiscal year or raising the debt limit. Grab some reality Reich. You are entitled to your opinions but not your own set of facts. Debt now exceeds 100% of that shrinking and manipulated GDP figure. That my friend, mathematically speaking- with a few thousand years worth of history backing it up- means doom. No country has ever rebounded at these debt levels.
How do you become this stupid? It's hard to figure. But imagine the millions of people like Reich that actually believe this shit and then you begin to understand why we are in so much trouble. The problem with guys like Reich is that they see this whole mess through partisan goggles. They still think this is some sort of opportunity to play politics. Or that it's some temporary glitch. Any day now- those 30 million jobs we lost are going to be brought back home. Wasting time blaming others is not a solution. The solution might have been that cut, cap, and balance bill that the kleptocrats shit canned in the Senate. Reich forgot to mention that. In fact, had it passed we might never of had this downgrade. That damn "radcon" controlled Senate.
So take your down grade like a man, Robert. You have nobody to blame but yourself and your party and know this....You ain't seen nothing yet.
