I AM DONE BEING "NICE". IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY SENSITIVE (OR EXTREMELY LIBERAL), DO NOT READ THIS.
Sometime around 7:00PM yesterday, in a stunning show of solidarity, 114 Democrat co-sponsors of HR 1207, also known as "Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed", decided at the very last minute to jump ship and vote nay. The resolution, which would have kick-started an audit of the most secretive privately-owned business in the entire world, failed, with a final vote tally of 229-198.
So, where do we go from here, folks? Anybody? Bueller?
I'll tell you: FUCKING NOWHERE!!!
WHAT, WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE? WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE YOU LIBERAL FOOLS WAKE UP AND SEE WHAT'S GOING ON RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSES? You vote these MORONS into office, because they tell you they are for CHANGE and BI-PARTISANSHIP, they make a big deal and co-sponsor a bill with the conservatives, AND THEN THEY GO RIGHT BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY PLANNED ALL ALONG!
I could go on and on for hours about the 'veil of secrecy', the geo-political SLUSH fund, the hoarding of the TARP money, and fiat currency, but no, that stuff goes in one liberal ear and right out the other, so instead, I'm going to try a different approach.
The other day, when I had to make a trip down to the south end of the Strand, I made a point to count each and every closed business, starting from the state line, and ending at my wife's place of employment. 287. That's the number I got. When I got home, I sat down, and did a little math. Now I bet you assumed that I was going to attempt to pin the entire rap on Obongo, didn't you? No, I know that some of those businesses are Bush's fault. But I also know my home, better than most of you know your own. I KNOW which ones. This is what I came up with:
Since January of THIS YEAR, 83% of those 287 businesses FAILED. That's roughly 238 businesses closed. I'm not just talking 'main street' mom and pop shops either, national chains. We no longer have any Quiznos restaurants in our area. Out of 8 locations, only one Blockbuster Video remains open. 3 Grocery stores have closed down, and 5 more are in bankruptcy. There's a 2-mile stretch where there are NO OPEN BUSINESSES, only empty buildings for sale.
When I look at these stretches of desolate ruin, a lot of images come into my mind: The fleecing we all took paying for a 7-year long construction project to build a 3-mile road and bridge (A permanent tax increase to 10%), a county commissioner than held a closed-door session to ban Pagans and Buddhists from being able to hold prayer services at public meetings, at taxpayer expense, a public servant having a nervous breakdown because democrats, tired of attempting to oust him from his position, instead cut his position entirely.
But even more striking than the incidents close to home, is the image of that GODDAMN SON OF A BITCH stepping into his office and calling his good buddy Bernanke right after the vote went down and giving him the good news. More monopoly money coming his way, that he can shovel into Fannie and Freddie, while his sits on his ass and pretends that he didn't award the Deepwater Horizon a presidential safety award last year.
If you voted for this administration, then YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. ALL OF YOU. I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY, you goddamn STUPID fucks. The following is a list of each and every sad sack that voted to protect the fed, and secure the future creation of the United Communist Republic of Amerikkka. If you dumb fucks won't vote against them in November, then do us all a favor and STAY THE FUCK HOME!
HR 1207 NAYS:
Jackson Lee (TX)
Johnson, E. B.
Sánchez, Linda T.
In closing, I'd like to quote Nathan, from my favorite video game:
"God bless the USA, and nowhere else"
Thank you liberal scumbags, and goodnight.
