Well we are all now privy to the big meeting that occurred yesterday between Barbara Lee, Bobby Scott, Eric Cantor, and John Boehner. Barbara Lee said in her press release that Boehner encouraged them to go back and work with the Ways and Means Committee to move this bill forward. Translation: Go screw yourself, you are not getting anything.
Representative Bobby Scott put forth the assertion that in the past if unemployment was above 7.2%, Congress has designated unemployment insurance as emergency spending. And I believe that is what the unemployment act states. But what is in an act? The supreme law of the land and Supreme Court decisions affirming it are routinely violated and pissed upon every day by the corporations who now run our government.
On Crew of 42’s website, Lauren Victoria Burke posted the following:
“No one could ever guess that two Democrats in the minority in the U.S. House could even get close to scoring even a meeting with the House Speaker and the Majority Leader in these hyper partisan times on any bill over a billion dollars much less 16 billion. But today, Reps. Barbara Lee and Eric Cantor did just that. They met with House Speaker John Boehner on unemployment insurance extensions for the 99ers.”
Really. So now there is a social class system in our Congress and apparently those championing the cause of the 99ers are slightly above a lizard shit civilian like me. Since when in the United States Congress is any representative held higher than another? And we are supposed to heap praise upon Lee and Scott because they managed to actually get in the same room as John Boehner?
John Boehner is at best mildly retarded. Since becoming Speaker of the House he has had a hard time talking about his job without crying. I guess someone must have got a little overzealous with the scissors during his vasectomy.
99ers, this is pathetic. This 14 week extension or a Tier 5 is not going to be accomplished by this pack of buffoons. Do you want to know the truth as to why Barbara Lee and Bobby Scott will not push the 99er issue like a postage stamp? It is because their commie leader Barack Obama does not want to be associated with the issue.
You have to remember for the most part we were, before becoming 99ers, middle class, red blooded, Constitution loving Americans. Like the majority of those left in the middle class we are the greatest enemies the Fabian socialist scum bags have. And the last they want to do is see us back in possession of our power as full citizens.
As I have said before, the neo-con republiscumbags have put their total effort into preserving the bank accounts of 80% of the top 10% who stand to go down with the rest of us as a natural consequence of the theft of the $26 trillion.
Barbara Lee and Bobby Scott act like they are so powerless to do anything. Bullshit. Look at Rand Paul and company. He is a first term Senator. He has falsely claimed the power of the grass roots Tea Party and picks and chooses which mainstream broadcast he goes on to champion his cause. Barbara Lee and Bobby Scott are frauds, but no more than anyone else in the phony Demopublican party.
The Republicrats have the majority in the House. That is only one third of the legislative process (the House, the Senate, and the President’s veto power) and they are dictating. There is only one way this happens and that is if the other two-thirds of the process are going along with it.
Don’t forget. The Democrats held a super majority. That is they controlled the House and the Senate and had enough votes to override a veto, which would have had to come from Obama. No one could have stopped them from passing a Tier 5, and they did not. Why? Because it had been already mutually decided in the one party system that unemployment was going to stop at 99 weeks.
Barbara Lee and Bobby Scott think they can get their socialist arses reelected by catering to illegals and gays and by pretending to be working to help the 99ers. Here’s something for you Barbara Lee and Bobby Scott, even if you get an extension for the 99ers just before the 2012 elections, you are not going to buy my endorsement, because I am not going to forget the hell I have already gone through and am still going through right now.
It has gone beyond redress. We are now at revenge and to tell you the truth I have more respect for the neo-cons as at least they make it clear that they are our enemy, whereas you smile in our faces while driving the dagger in our backs. I would have rather a thousand enemies staring me in the face than one pretending to be my friend standing behind me.
God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
