Teabaggers = GOP Porkers / Updated – Rand Sells Out

November 8, 2010

WASHINGTON — Signaling how difficult it will be for the Republican Party to live up to its campaign promises of cutting spending while preserving the Bush tax cuts and not cutting benefits for seniors, Tea Party favorites Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and Sen.-elect Rand Paul (R-Ky.) struggled on Sunday to actually name any specific cuts they plan on making.

Republicans — including Sen. John Cornyn (Tex.) and Rep. Pete Sessions (Tex.) — have consistently been unable to name specific cuts they will make to the budget in order to offset an extension of the Bush tax cuts. On Oct. 3, Paul also said that he didn’t see extending the Bush tax cuts as “a cost to government.”

In a bigger shift from his campaign pledge to end earmarks, he tells me that they are a bad “symbol” of easy spending but that he will fight for Kentucky’s share of earmarks and federal pork, as long as it’s doled out transparently at the committee level and not parachuted in in the dead of night. “I will advocate for Kentucky’s interests,” he says.

    interesting youtube.. See, people are getting peoed. Maybe not here in Tulsa, OK.. but in other places of USA.

    • The Dog is right. You seem to have a special gullibility for people who want to protect you from non-existent inflation (and make a bundle off you in the process).

      Back in the 1980’s I got an unsolicited phone call from some moron trying to sell me investment diamonds. He explained how they were GUARANTEED to increase in value by some huge percentage every year. I asked him why anyone would have to shake the trees for investors with a deal like that, and why his employer was willing to sell at today’s low, low prices. He hung up on me! 😀

    • Those thieves count on folks with no money smarts – and a bit of greed – there are plenty to choose from.

  3. Bottom line – they are a gold flogger – be afraid…
    A branch of Beck’s Goldline? These are not “people”.

  4. The Republicans are indeed going to have to do some fancy footwork to cut taxes by $800 billion, repeal Obamacare at a cost of $400 billion, and then balance the budget with Social Security and defense spending (and debt interest) all “off the table.”

    They never were very good at third-grade arithmetic.

  5. Ol’ Randy Paul is already stiffing the teabaggers – says he won’t block the national debt limit…. wants to be one of the club?

  6. In my work, I observed that there are two professions that tend to get themselves into spectacular financial trouble, and therefore are the favorite prey of scamsters: physicians and airline pilots.

    What do those two have in common? Steady cash flow, zero financial training, and a “god” complex – accustomed to being the smart guy whose orders everyone obeys.

    Lots of doctors buy gold!

    I hear that gold hit a new high yesterday. Buy high, sell low?

    • Silver did too! I bought SILV for my 401K.. It is going UP.. I was stupid I should of bought some for my trading account as well. Oh well. I am holding.. I’ve made $10/share. My gold ETF is doing well also. Mixed advise out there today.. many are looking Inflation coming up.. with this QE2 stuff. We are treading in uncharted waters.. It never has been done before.. The FED had to do something..

    • Silver at least makes a tiny amount of sense. Production is about equal to usage. The exception is manufactured bubbles (Hunt brothers in the 1980s’) and panic situations – like now. Gold on the other hand has only minor usages. All the gold electronics contacts and jewelry will not eat up current inventory in thousands of years. Ditto for diamonds – which used to be kept artifically in short supply by De Beers – but no more now that the Russians and the Congolese have broken the monopoly..

  7. Another group that is full of suckers is salesmen. You would think they would know all the tricks – but guess not.
