The Song of America: A Barbaric Yawp

From over the rooftops of America (Whitman), frantic citizens are sounding their barbaric yawp at the top of their lungs to stop the insane spending. The body politic has enough sense to recognize their country is in dramatic decline and headed for bankruptcy. President Obama is a failed president. Trillions have gone down the hope and change dry hole.

America, President Obama is not listening. In fact he thinks you are the problem. You took away the Democrat control of the House last November and now the Republicans are standing in the way of Obama having his way raising taxes and spending even more money. Yes, that’s just what we need isn’t it?- doubling down on the last 2 1/2 years of Obamafail.

Today, Obama came before the cameras to demand that Republicans raise the debt ceiling limit right away. He made that statement as Americans were trying to digest the rise in unemployment to 9.2% and the pathetic no-job numbers, both of which came out this morning. You’d think maybe the president might re-think his profligate spending ways. But no, the facts be damned. Raise the debt ceiling so I can get back to spending like a fool. This administration really believes it can spend its way to prosperity and empower their allies all at the same time. Now that’s some real voodoo economics.

In 2009, we were promised that the near trillion dollar “stimulus” would keep unemployment to 8%. FAIL. Then, Nancy Pelosi promised Obamacare would create 400,000 jobs almost immediately. FAIL. A year ago, they were touting the summer of recovery. FAIL. This summer, they are telling you that failure to quickly raise the debt limit will collapse the economy. Americans aren’t buying it any more and rightfully so.

President Obama is not listening to you and does not care what you think. Scream louder. Give your barbaric yawp some teeth!

  1. It is almost impossible to not be discouraged. Bombarded on all sides by indifference and ignorance, what do we do now? Rush, although he may be premature, said today that the GOP is caving…

    Most of my life, I believed that politicians were “crooked” but never quite with the severity of meaning. Now I’ve realized that not only are they criminals, but that almost every last one of them, from both sides of the aisle, lack principles and are more interested in ruling than representing.

    • TG if people like you and GC are sounding the warning, farbe it from me to retrace your logic. But I will watch just a little while longer, and keep my powder dry. One good thing about being a conservative in New York (where I am not) – they have an honest to goodness Conservative Party, with candidates and principles that traces its heritage back to Buckley. Maybe they foresaw something setting up a Conservative Party separate from the Republican Party, that the rest of us didn’t……I take your “whig” warning seriously….

      • The rooster had one party go to hell on him. I think he is seeing a repeat.

        I kinda hate it but unless enough conservative people jump into their precincts to take over the Republican party, I’m at a loss to see this turning out well.

        • I said in a thread last week that, up until then, I hadn’t called for civil disobedience on any issue we had discussed here at UP. I guess I am saying that, up until now, I haven’t called for a third party. The only other option after those two alternatives had failed would be ….really, really severe civil disobedience. Is it not within the realm of possibility that the Republican leadership who , despite their protestations that they get it, really don’t get it, also don’t get that there really, really are forces in the rabid neo-socialist movement who would like nothing better than option three?

  2. I’ll tell you what is so discouraging, I have given up hope that they will ever listen to us. They told us they would cut spending by $100 billion if we would elect them in 2010 so we did. They cut spending by about $300 Million which is a fart in a whirlwind with these deficit numbers.

    Now we are demanding that they Cut, Cap and Balance, and they are bargaining with Obama to raise our taxes.

    I don’t know if I can survive another season like this. Our politicians are making me crazy. I have absolutely no confidence that they value our economic life or form of government at all. They want power and that’s all. They have no compunction about screwing us or lying to us. They are crooked and self serving in all ways.

    It is very discouraging.

    • Don’t be discouraged. Use it to fuel the fire.

      It’s really past the time for tar and feathers. Anyone who voted for all of that spending in the first two years needs to be made a poster child for working against American interests. That’s almost all of the Dem’s. Most likely we’ll find more than a few RINO’s in there too.

      The Dem’s are so far gone as to be beyond recovery. It seems now some select R’s are following in their footstep.

      One can only hope they do abetter job of negotiating this time, than what they got the last time when they compromised. I’ve come to hate that word since it usually means it got too difficult for the R’s to grow a set.

      Until then, hang in there. There’s an old saying about not letting the bastards grind you down.

      • But they are grinding us down. They control most of the levers of power and have the lamestream to cover for them. It’s a powerful assault, especially when the R leadership won’t really fight.

        I’ll be hanging in till they plant me but I might not be a Republican.

        • “…when the R leadership won’t really fight.”

          And there’s the problem I think. The Dem’s are using the R’s as cover under disguise of a compromise. They’ll use the same thing the R’s vote for and then beat them over the head with it. Instead of large sweeping reductions the R’s will most likely accept another savings spread ov the next 10 years. Yeah, the number might mean something if it was a single years savings and was in effect from then after.

          I believe the R’s are too stupid to realize they’re in a gunfight armed with wheat stalks.

          Unless someone makes some really hard decisions that affect everyone equally, the takers will complain loudly about loosing their benefits.

          Nose meet face.

  3. I think the unease many of is feel – I have started feeling it too – is a feeling in the gut, that sometime, someday, not long ago, can’t tell you exactly when – the Economy quietly passed our national failsafe point. Now the ferocious consequences of this monster debt have been loosed and will start happening and tearing through the vitals of our economy on their own strength. We will still have a lot of work to do, and the Lib poser and statist politicians will disappear fast fearing the work and real responsibility involved. But those that are left to do the hard work, instead of taking a bull by the horns, will be holding a tiger by the tail. And…may have to fight a war, too, launched by our enemies at the hour of their choosing because perceive us weak.And those who fought against common sense for the last dollar of their federal benefits, will realize they’ve been had when they see how worthless those dollars have become.
