That’s The Ticket: A Blue Ribbon Commission For The Deficit

Because the donkeys and elephants have to look like they are doing something about the insane debt they have saddled us with in hopes they aren’t booted from their cushy seats in upcoming elections.

When I read about the administration looking into creating a deficit commission,  I just wanted to weep instead of the nausea I felt when Obama was inaugurated.  These suicide bombers who are busy blowing up the dollar and destroying all American wealth now want a commission to fiddlef*** around with maybe deciding what to do about the deficit, and then, more than likely, telling us they need even more of our income to fix the chaos they created while we have the highest unemployment rate in 25 years.

I know what they can do: RESIGN, STEP DOWN, BOW OUT, STEP ASIDE, BECOME INVISIBLE, MAKE ROOM FOR SOMEONE WITH AN ECONOMIC BRAIN, GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE, etc.

White House Weighs New Panel to Tackle Deficit
Bipartisan Commission Considered as Administration Seeks to Show Resolve on a Problem that Dogs Its Broader Agenda

WASHINGTON — The White House is considering a bipartisan commission to tackle the nation’s swelling deficit, as it seeks to show resolve on a problem that threatens its broader agenda.

Top White House officials, including budget director Peter Orszag, met Tuesday with Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Kent Conrad to discuss establishing such a commission, which has been pushed by Mr. Conrad, a North Dakota Democrat, and his Republican counterpart on the committee, Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.

Senior congressional officials said the idea was gaining traction. Two officials said the White House was likely to make its own proposal for a panel, which could have less power than the proposed Conrad-Gregg commission. White House aides said no final decision had been made.

The idea is to bring Republicans and Democrats together to make tough decisions about how to cut costs or raise revenue in areas including Social Security, Medicare and taxes. For the White House, establishing a commission would show that the Obama administration is serious about tackling the deficit while postponing any real moves until after the 2010 elections.

If the debt ceiling isn’t raised above its current $12.1 trillion level, the government will exceed its borrowing limits and could be forced to default on its debt. Treasury officials say the limit could be reached by mid-December.

“There are rare moments in this institution when you can implement fundamental change,” Sen. Evan Bayh (D., Ind.) said during a budget hearing this month. “This is one of them.”

Sounds like a crisis to be used to make fundamental change, doesn’t it?

Sen. Gregg, who is concerned that a White House commission would lack teeth, said Tuesday he believes the Obama administration has little interest in real deficit reduction. “You’ve got to look at their actions, not their words, and their actions are to massively expand the government,” he said.

Senior congressional budget aides and some lawmakers are also skeptical that Congress would act anytime soon on an administration-backed commission’s plans.

Fiddle-f***ing around…

Sen. Conrad Wants Most Of America To Expatriate

It must be so liberating for the progressives to finally be able to speak their minds clearly, concisely, and truthfully.  It is also a Godsend to the rest of the nation that still knows right from wrong to be able to identify the traitors among us so that we may vote their behinds right out of office and actually make them work for a living, if of course, we are not given a reason to perp-walk them out of the Capitol Building.

North Dakota; are you listening?

Sen. Conrad Suggests That People Who Don’t Believe in Civilian Trials for Terrorists Should Leave America and ‘Go Somewhere Else

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) told CNSNews.com that civilian courts are well-suited to prosecute al Qaeda terrorists and that “if people don’t believe in our system, maybe they ought to go somewhere else.”

Conrad also dismissed a question about the rights of terrorists captured on foreign battlefields and the rules of evidence in terms of a civilian court trial as not serious.

On Capitol Hill on Nov. 19, CNSNews.com asked Conrad: “We’re going to have a civilian trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. If our troops–the evidence against him is going to be found in Afghanistan, there on the battlefield–if our troops need to enter a house and they think that there’s evidence there, should they have to establish probable cause and get a search warrant from a judge first?”

Conrad said: “You’re not being serious about these questions, are you?”

CNSNews.com: “[Yes], in a civilian trial. If I was on trial or you were on trial, that would have to be [done].”

Conrad responded, “We have tried terrorists in our courts and done so very successfully in the past and that is our system. So if people don’t believe in our system, maybe they ought to go somewhere else. I believe in America.”

The Fourth Amendment, which protects all defendants in civilian courts, prohibits the government from searching or seizing evidence without first establishing probable cause and obtaining a warrant–based on that probable cause–from a judge.

The Fourth Amendment reads: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

These are enemy combatants, NOT AMERICAN CITIZENS!

Do the Progressives want to bestow American citizenship on everybody in the world so that they can tax them too?  That may sound silly, but prosecuting foreign terrorists caught on foreign soil who then confessed to their crimes, and then affording them the rights of American citizenship is just as ridiculous.
