… Meet the DePressed is Really Bad …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. I knew it had slid downhill , but not this far .

.. I caught the audio for it on Sunday from another room when I was watching my favourite N.F.L. team (yea , the Browns)

lose another game . I did not pay attention to it that much , but yes , I did hear enough of it .

.. Yeech !! David Gregory is a terrible host , and an even worse questioner . He does not push his guests at all , whether they be newsmakers or the media . Tim Russert has to be turning over and over in his grave , watching this from up on high with the Big Guy .

… the ObamaCraps Would Do Well to Pay Attention to This Guy [on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 2nd,2013

.. I am talking about His Eminence , Timothy Cardinal Dolan .

.. Cardinal Dolan made an appearance on one of the Sunday shows [on Meet the DePressed] , in which he appealed to the ObamaCraps on the pro – Death mandate . It is making it impossible for him and for Catholics to support the Administration on ObamaCrapCare because of this particular problem …

.. I am not surprised that the Roman Catholic Church would be a supporter of universal coverage on health insurance . I am a Roman Catholic , and I do support my Church and faith on this issue . However , I also believe that a much more free – market approach would be far more effective in bringing the costs involved in medicine into better control . Government command and control never works and never has worked …

… Watch her get Cooked on Meet the DePressed , of all things [yes , on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 19th,2013

.. these days , Meet the Press [Meet the DePressed] is largely a lost cause .

Tim Russert

.. Why ? David Gregory .

.. He is an empty suit for a reporter if there is ever one . He generally is clueless as to tough questions . Forget about anyone of a conservative bent getting a fair hearing with Gregory . If NBC Snooze were not such a sad sack (principally due to lack of talent , the rest due to the loons at pMSNBC) , the higher ups at the network would be able to find someone with a fair bit of talent . Tim Russert has to be turning over in his grave at the state of his old show . Even Garrick Utley did a top flight job , next to Gregory .

.. That is what makes this interview so surprising ([link] here ) . Nancy Pelosi signed on to appear on the show , and probably figured that she was going to get the ususal fluff questions that most liberals get . You would be wrong , for once .

.. ObamaCrapCare

… No , You do not Raise the Debt Limit without Conditions …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 28th,2013

.. Hey , you foolish jackhole for a Treasury Secretary . You have been Deputy White House Chief of Staff , and White House Chief of Staff . You should know better .

.. The budget is one thing . A Continuing Resolution (or C.R.) should be passed , in order to keep the government running .

However , it should only be for a limited period of time , in order to give all sides breathing room , as well as motivation . The motivation should be to pass the regular appropriations bills . Ideally , they should be passed on time . If not , then in decent time and order , as soon as possible .

.. However , the debt limit bill is another matter . Raising the debt limit has not come without controversy . The nation ‘ s bill s have been and will be paid . As part of a C.R. , Congress should pass a bill mandating the order in which bills should be paid , in the case of a debt limit controversy . They should stick by it , and force POTUS ‘ hand . The scandal is that the debt limit needs to be raised , and the amount and need for deficit spending . Especially under the ObamaCraps .

.. The ObamaCraps have more than doubled our nation ‘ s debt , to almost $17 trillion . That in and of itself is outrageous . It must stop . Spending must be reduced , and put on a DOWNWARD trend . Ditto taxes . No , not upward , DOWNWARD , thank you very much .

Congress needs to raise the debt limit and take away the “cloud of uncertainty” about the nation’s ability to pay its bills, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said in an interview broadcast Sunday.

“The fight over the debt limit in 2011 hurt the economy, even though, in the end, we saw an extension of the debt limit. We saw confidence fall, and it hurt the economy. Congress needs to do its job. It needs to finish its work on appropriation bills. It needs to pass a debt limit,” Lew said on NBC’s Meet The Press.

Senior lawmakers on Capitol Hill are trying to come up with must-do legislation to keep federal agencies running after Sept. 30 and prevent the possibility of a government shutdown. At issue is what is normally routine: a plug-the-gap measure to fund the government for a few weeks or months until a deal can be worked out on appropriations bills giving agencies their operating budgets for the full 2014 fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1.

However, some Democratic liberals don’t want to vote to continue to fund the government at new, lower levels mandated by the automatic, across-the-board spending cuts known as sequestration. And some conservatives are making a last stand against President Barack Obama’s new health care law. In addition, Senate Democrats are resistant to a $20 billion spending cut wanted by many Republicans.

Lew maintained that the president won’t negotiate over the debt limit but stopped short, however, of saying that Obama would shut down the government.

“Drawing this to brinksmanship is a mistake. It’s bad for the economy for it to be brinksmanship,” he said.
