“Elimination of debt ceiling passes House”

House GOP turns power of the purse over to the imperial President. Who likely won’t use his new-found (albeit “temporary”) powers to invent and spend money that doesn’t exist — in a move that in fact acts as a “partial repeal of representative government” — in any way that could be described as “malicious.”

Frankly, I’m embarrassed that you’d even suggest such a thing. And I’m talking to you who were thinking it, too. It’s outrageous, and I’m outraged.

We’re a loyal opposition. We respect the office of the Presidency, even if only in the abstract, making no accommodation for how that office may be corrupted or used unconstitutionally to operate a leftist coup, turning a representative republic into a populist liberal fascist state.

Our loyalty is, after all, what makes us shiny. And being shiny is everything.

  1. i think the office of the presidency is a whore magnet

    me I have never felt its tug

  2. From your link:

    “And it means, come May 19, the debt ceiling must be reinstated. Otherwise, House Republicans will have ceded their constitutional authority over fiscal matters to the executive, marking an end to representative government in any true sense.”

    What can one even say to this?

  3. Brave, brave Sir Boehner. When danger reared its ugly head he bravely turned his tail and fled.

    Minstrel eating time.

  4. Interesting game, three dimensional chess. The only winning move is not to play.

  5. Weepy would gladly give Obama a hamburger today for the promise of being paid when hell freezes over.

  6. You hear that sound? It’s the sound of the credit of the United States being downgraded. Again.

  7. Can’t happen soon enough, SBP. As JHo will happily tell you — the only reason we’re creditworthy is because most of the world is reliant on our remaining creditworthy. It’s going to be fun when the cat finally jumps out of the bag. In much the same way as chemotherapy is fun.

  8. Better, newer, stronger, and surely to the US’s credit, women will now be fighting, killing and being killed in turn on the frontlines of America’s wars. How comforting to those who know a taste for death.

  9. The Hill: Boehner: Obama’s goal is to ‘annihilate’ the Republican Party

    And Speaker John can’t surrender fast enough even to satisfy his own desires.

  10. who know a taste for death.

    proggtardism like islam is a death cult

  11. Not only is progressivism a death cult, they want me to pay for the murder they advocate.

  12. Women is combat is a double-plus ungood idea. There’s enough fighting now as it is. Now there will be screwing and fighting and court-marshalling.

  13. women in combat means the womens will get a lot more “ptsd” and we can study it and national soros radio can do stories on it and a good time will be had by all

  14. Women in combat are going to be useless as tits on a boar.

    “I can’t carry anymore sandbags. They’re too heavy.”

    “Do these BDUs make my ass look fat?”

  15. At no time in my life—even in my vigorous youth—was I ever fit for combat. No amount of training could have gotten me there. I would have been worse than useless—I’d have been a full-time liability because I’m a klutz and a weakling.

    So if, as Levin worries, they start drafting women, what are they gonna do with them? Mix them in with the men on the front line as cannon fodder?

    Yeah, that’ll work.

  16. You and me both, di. The only thing I can do is cook and shoot, but I suck at building a fire and my endurance has always been iffy.

    Don’t get me started on giant insects or camel spiders,either. Blech.

  17. I, for one, am happy to see our brave women on the front lines. Why should the Israelis have all the fun?

  18. Great. How soon before they lower the standards for acceptance into the Navy SEALs to accommodate women (not that women are physically different from men, no siree, I’m not sexist!).

    On the plus side, the MSM will now have more dead soldier mommies (and potential hostages) to promote their anti-war crusade during Republican presidencies.

  19. Maybe women in combat will be more willing to shoot American citizens “if necessary”.

  20. Limbaugh used to have a bit about the “PMS Brigade,” a regiment of women whose PMS schedules have all synchronized. There would be 28 battalions I guess, so there would always be at least one at full readiness at all times.
