Debt limit deal struck mostly on tea party's terms

Full story: The Times-Picayune

The tea party movement is getting credit for a debt extension bill that will trim the deficit without new taxes, although many of its members opposed the final legislation as insufficient.

You should resist such impulses. That is the realm of the liberal - the radical leftist - to a far greater extent, liberals resort to violence to acheive their goals. Just look at Hitler, and Mao and the violent uprisings of liberals through out European countries in modern times.

Our system is a gift from our Founding Fathers - they were without a doupt instruments of our creator - yes God!

This is nothing less than good vs evil. Do not become what you rightfully despise.

The Progressive Liberal mind is a diseased mind.
Vote all Progressives out of office.
Send Obama back to Kongolo, Kenya to rule.
Besides that is where his museum is located in honor of his and his father's birth in Kenya.
No joke...google it. It is a 2 million dollar complex. One of our diplomats was their to commemorate the unveiling. All this was confirmed by the Kenyan Secret service.
Question: Ask yourself why this place commemorates his birth their if that ain't so? Hey, they said not me!

The John "I got 98%" Boehner Debt Compromise Bill of 2011 - Kills Jobs, reduces GDP, and doesn't fix the revenue problem the GOP created back in 2001/2003. The long term effects of this GOP political debacle are starting to be felt and boy is it gonna hurt! So hang on, thanks to the GOP, we're in for a really bad ride!

The Dow was down 500pts today and has been for the last 9 days out of 10. This is only the beginning!

Keep a constant eye on your 401ks...You need to be ready to readjust your investments because thanks to John Boehner & the GOP, today is just the first of many in another long downward spiral!

One more thing, thanks to GOP failure to follow through on their commitment to work on JOBS legislation as well as their failure to address our revenue problem, tomorrow's JOBS report is going to be really bad and the markets will plummet accordingly! Don't just let your retirement accounts evaporate! Keep a close eye on the markets and your retirement accounts. Remember what happened the last time the GOP crashed the economy back in 2008!

We cannot cut our way out of a faltering economic recovery. Unemployment is high. Consumers are one paycheck away from bankruptcy so they are spending little, if any! Businesses are holding off on their spending, keeping trillions out of the economy, due to concerns over consumer spending and the markets. The GOP's solution has been to propose more cuts by the only economic component that WAS actually spending. Until we get past the mythical fairytale of the GOP's U.S. economy's self-healing, the market will continue to see the fallacy of cutting Government spending at a time when no one else is!!!

Our country's experience in the early part of the last century proves that at a time of economic crisis, if businesses aren't spending and consumers aren't spending, then the Government must. Our ancestors were part of that horrible experiment of the Hoover Administration that brought on the Great Depression, in which the government curled up into a ball while the GOP simultaneously insisted the economy should heal itself! We should know by now that in times of crisis - as true today as it was back then - the economy turns out to be comprised entirely of a bunch of rich people who will sit on their money no matter if the country starves. Continuing to exempt them from paying taxes will do nothing to pull us back from this downward spiral back into recession. Hostage taking for political gain by the GOP and the lack of an alternative plan by the Democrats will not do anything to pull us back from that downward economic spiral.

Until the markets see our political leaders become focused more on investing in infrastructure, education, new technologies, and growing America's economy than they are in getting re-elected, we will continue to see stock market drops like we saw today!

Ya infrastructure like shovel ready jobs building roads and bridges, where have we heard that before. President Obama tried to tell us he had to do this stimulus package for one trillion dollars it was a crisis he would solve sure, now the money is gone? And the taxpayers have to pay it back, and what do we have to show for it. A President who can smile and say I guess there were no shovel ready jobs? And who is the bag holder the taxpayers.

The buck stops with Obama. Stop carying his water. This clown is no statesman, is a liar, usurper, charlatan, and illegal alien.
Grannie Dunham pulled some funny business in probate court where she worked. And then rich Muslims financed the Manchurian's successful rise to power. Nobody will expose him do to the "powers that be". So until the election in 2012, get out of the market if your savings are their. And hope that there is a country still in 2012 to cast your vote.
Obama's policies are a failure. He's proven that time and time again since his election.
Obama was elected by people who were politically uninformed, or into sensationalism of the race. They did not know or care about the issues, much less about his idealogy. If they had, we'd not be at 9.2% unemployment, 14 million unemployed, which doesn't account for those who have given up. He's spent money we did not have, and his economic policies were all failures.
Obama does not deserve another four years. He and his Progressives pushed through Obama Care which we cannot afford, and it will further cause the default of this country, as we cannot afford to fund it. Medicare and Medicaid, and Social Security are on the brink of extinction.
So tell me Liberals how we are going to fund Obama Care?
Liberals live in a money flowing fantasy land. Ask Moody's and the S & P, they are going to down-grade us due to irresponsible spending pratices. Obama has spent 5 Trillion since his election 3 years ago. More than all Presidents combined.
And you want to extend him another run on the credit card? NO WAY...ALOHA CHARLIE!!

The damaged section of the San Francisco Bay Bridge is being built in China. Shovel ready, yes we can! Before anyone blames Arney, it's the federal government talking about infrastructure jobs and the bridge is part of I-80.
