Paul Ryan — An Adult Conversation with Wall Street

Oh well, it’s too late for an April Fool’s post, so the above title would have to be filed under Fiction or Fantasy.

America’s favorite Deficit Chickenhawk is champing at the bit to balance the budget on the backs of everybody. Everybody, that is, except the corporate donors who financed his re-election.

And this pathetic little buttwipe has the nerve to talk about having an “adult conversation” with people who work for a living, people who are on Social Security and/or Medicare — about the need to cut spending by $5 trillion (and the number keeps climbing) because our budget deficit is so urgent.

How about having an “adult conversation” with the Wall Street tycoons who CAUSED the 2008 Depression and then got bailed out by taxpayers?!?!?!?!

How about an “adult conversation” with the wealthy chickenhawks who cream in their pants at the thought of sending more American soldiers to get killed or maimed ten thousand miles away? Or the multi-billion-dollar corporations who are paying ZERO income taxes?!?!?

Paul Ryan can either have his heralded “adult conversation” with the three above-mentioned groups, or he can Shut the Fuck Up and Die already.

How can we have an adult conversation with people who treat us like children?

Do what the alternate-reality Halloween Simpsons did, turn the Pentagon into a mal -- oh shit, Kang and Kodos!

Ryan creeps me out. He's dangerous because he first comes across like an innocent Mormon missionary and the next thing you know he's proposing you go live in a tent city.

How about we withhold all benefits, salaries, and perks of all members of both houses of Congress as well as the President, the VP, and all their "czars," advisors, and staff until the budget is balanced, deficit spending is halted, and paydown of the debt is effectively underway.

jadedj: Excellent question.

Randal: No badmouthing the Pentagon, Commie.

J: I think his voice and manner are creepy. He has that sing song way of talking, like he's the host of a kiddies' TV show, or like he's about to say "want some candy, little boy?"

Lisa: Works for me.

Ryan is what you'd get if Scott Walker was in Congress instead of the Wisconsin governor's office. Somewhere there's a mold where these clods are turned out in batches.

Rachel Maddow did a fantastic takedown of Ryan's brain-cramp wish list tonight. His numbers don't begin to add up. He got some of them from the Heritage Foundation's Web site, which has since taken those numbers down and won't stand behind them.

But some numbers remain, like Heritage's projection of job growth because of the Bush tax cuts, made back when he was proposing those cuts. Maddow showed the pie-in-the-sky projections and what really happened, which was millions of jobs lost.

I can't stand that little Bush clone with the very obvious Ronald Reagan hairstyle!

SW: "Somewhere there's a mold where these clods are turned out in batches." LOL. It sure seems that way. Suddenly a dozen states are simultaneously cranking out identical legislation to squelch unions and disenfranchise voters. Republican Lockstep in all its colors.

Ryan's numbers certainly don't add up. It's just the Laffer Curve 2.0.

Jack: Yup, he even copied Reagan's hairstyle; how desperate is that.

An "adult conversation".


If it's like "adult" as in porno, this whole Tea Party business is like porno for the conservatives.

We are the Adults - they are the kids in the Candy Store.

Good Idea and while we are at it, lets withhold all the pensions of the last administration that helped put us in this mess in the first place.

I guess that would also mean the democrat controlled congress Barney Frank and Chris Dodd ,Eric?
I think the execs at Fannie Mae should give back their taxpayer bonuses too.
