Give Us A Little Credit!

Is it just me, or are some of the people in our government just idiots?

I can’t believe that after they were warned that just raising the debt ceiling would not prevent our credit rating to be downgraded, that’s the mark they were shooting for.

They set their goal on mediocre and missed the mark!


Every person with just half a brain knows you cannot keep spending above your income!

Heck there is even a counter that is displayed everywhere showing our debt increasing at a rapid pace. Yet they continue to ignore this fact.

Seriously, how stupid are these people we sent to Washington D.C. to represent us?

I’m a patient person, but enough is enough, this stupidity has got to be dealt with.

The Tea Party folks that we sent up tried their best to get something done, the problem is there is just not enough of them to stop the incumbent imbeciles that are currently ensconced in their offices.

I find it amusing that we hear the Democrats call Tea Party members terrorists, and say that they were holding the country hostage. So what do we call the dip-zweebies that prevented us from trying to balance our budget and therefore allowing our credit rating to be dropped?

We certainly would not call them qualified to criticize anybody else?

I’d love to here the Democratic argument for this outcome, and don’t even bother posting if you’re one of the short-circuited thinking people who are going to STILL cry that George Bush is responsible for this.

I’m all for free speech, but if anyone replies with that line of thought I’m just going to delete your reply on the basis of your brain-damage, and the fact that I refuse to even waste my time trying to talk to a wall.

Seriously, if you’re a “George Bush did it” person you need to do a lot more work on your education of what is currently going on. The term “Sheep” comes to mind.

I don’t like to just rant without providing what I think is a solution (Okay, sometimes I do), so here’s my take on what needs to be done.

Everyone scoot a little closer to your monitors and turn up your volume so you don’t miss this because I have toiled long and hard coming up with this answer.


Earth-shattering I know. I should get a Nobel prize for this fascinating realization that apparently the majority of the buffoons we have sent to represent us can’t really figure out on their own.

How proud they all must feel to know that my 11-year old understands this concept, yet they can’t grasp simple economics.

Come next election, you can bet your vote that some more seats will be replaced.

So you idiots on the hill better enjoy the time you have, because it’s going to be your last hurrah with our tax money!

Albert Einstein is attributed as saying that insanity was, “doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” Why would we allow these people to continue to do the same thing over and over again?

The inmates have run the asylum for far to long now, it’s time to start healing this country.

    You are so right! The problem with the incumbents is that most of them are sooo out of touch with what it takes to run a business (they've been on Capitol Hill too long) that they forget how to balance a budget. If they were only a part-time Congress, and made what the average American did, they would likely run home and keep their businesses afloat and they'd have a different perspective of a "bottom line".

    Their reelection is attributed to the problem of which Albert Einstein speaks and insanity that you write about: the average American IS insane!

    I've been watching a series called "Do the Right Thing." It talks about how the ethics of America has slipped because of moral relativism. There is no moral code anymore. The whole boondoggle on Wall Street started with a lapse in ethics. Our Congress doesn't see overspending as a code of ethics. I think, personally, if my family was unable to pay our bills, it would be unethical to not do everything we could to pay the money that we owe others. Or, maybe I should go on a shopping spree with my Nordstrom card and then not pay the bill! Why doesn't Congress see it the same way?

    And as far as it all starting with Bush, I submit that it all started with FDR and his "temporary" entitlement programs (the New Deal - 1935"ish"), that Congress has made sure were no longer "temporary." (1980's and 90's) We're 70+ years into this financial thought process.

    Too bad we can't get people in there who can shake things up. They'll have to be in there too long to get seniority on the committees (or become a member of the "super congress") and they'll be like the rest of the incumbents by the time they have that kind of seniority! We'd have to vote out all of the incumbents in one two year period. Not likely, especially when states, like California, has just greatly gerrymandered the districts to make sure the incumbents stay in power!
