Verse 31 of the Obama Impeachment song: Raising taxes through executive action.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

Raising taxes on my own

Contempt for Congress I have shown.

All the money I have blown,

Now China demands: Repay our loan.

Sequestration, the end of the world? A Limerick.

Sequester_MitchellObama the spender: “Tax more!
We Must spend much more than before
on Solyndra and friends”.
for on such he depends.
Sequester: Cut waste to the core?

So, is cutting the growth in spending by 86 Billion in a Federal Continuing Resolution spending of over 3.6 Trillion dollars the end of the world? Congress (The Democrats in the Senate, that is Harry Reid) have prevented a vote on any budget for four years. Yhe only budget that have been voted on in the Senate is the Presidental budget proposal. It got defeated 97 to 0. Not one Democrat voted for the White House budget! They are much more comfortable spending on the Continuing resolution, continuing to spend on canceled programs, not funding changes except as “emergencies” thus multiplying the debt.
The President himself promised to veto any proposal that changed the seguester. Listen:

Quotes from Cicero, true and false.

A friend showed me text message with the following quote:

The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. The mobs should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence. Marcus Tullius Cicero 55 B.C.

It looked suspiciously current, so I fact checked it on the internet, the wonderful invention where you not only have to check the facts, but also check the fact checkers and their sources and sponsors.

According to The Chicago Tribune (20 April 1971), John H. Collins, Professor of History at Northern Illinois University, reported that this attribution to Cicero, actually originated in A Pillar of Iron (1965), Taylor Caldwell’s fictionalized account of the life of the senator.

However, this is a true quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero in regard to the danger of internal subversion. In a speech to the Roman Senate, as recorded by Sallust, Cicero said:
“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”

A Limerick  on Thanksgiving Day leftovers: A 24 Billion dollar increase in Federal Debt.

The U.S. Treasury increased the net debt of the United States $24,327,048,384.38 on the day after Thanksgiving, which equals $211.69 for each of the nation’s 114,916,000 households. (CNSNEWS)

In August 2011, the debt ceiling — the amount of money the federal government is allowed to borrow — was raised by $2.4 trillion, to $16.394 trillion. According to the National Debt Clock, as of Nov. 23, the total debt was nearing the limit, at $16.3 trillion. You also could think of it as about $51,000 per person in the US.

A decadent town on Potomac,

where cronyism fills up its stomach.

It is borrow and spend,

print more money to lend.

Our government has run amok.

The Obama recovery. Cost: One million per job.

The Federal continuing resolution spending allocation* ran up an all-time record deficit for the month of February 2012: 229 Billion dollars.

The economy added 227 Thousand new jobs for the same month.

Running a budget deficit is stimulating the economy, leading to job growth.

Every job created last month cost our grandchildren over one million dollars.

This is the Obama recovery.

* This is what substitutes for budget. The Democrat controlled Senate has not passed a budget in over 1000 days. It only takes a simple majority to pass a budget.

Please explain your theology, Mr. President.

Mr. President!

On the resent National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. you said:

“Jesus would back my tax-the-rich policy.”

You went on to say that your understanding of the Bible is the basis for your economic policies.

Campaigning in Ohio, presidential candidate Rick Santorum was criticizing your radical environmental views, which he said hurt the American people.

“It’s not about you [people],” Santorum  declared. “It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible — a different theology.”

Very few commented on your statements at the prayer breakfast. People seem to be perfectly happy that you are using your understanding of the Bible as the basis for your polices.

When Rick Santorum challenges you on your understanding of the Bible, saying that your  theology is open to challenge, everybody is jumping on him, saying that any criticism of your Christian belief is over the line.

You invited a discussion on your understanding of the Bible since you use it as the basis for your economic polices.

What is your biblical basis for not having an opinion whether we should have a budget or not?

What is your biblical understanding on abortion? The only references on abortion I can find in the Bible are child sacrifices, as was practiced in Baal worship. Is that your basis?

Where is the biblical justification for Government regulation trumping Religion?

Please let me know where you stand on the Bible since it is your understanding of the Bible that is the basis for your economic polices.

You were in Rev. Jeremy Wright’s Church for twenty years. You said you never listened to his sermons. How did you obtain your understanding of the Bible?
