Boy they are really rolling out the show this week on Cbsnews.com.

Lloyd Bleankfein of Goldman fame came on yesterday to say that we must contain entitlements and even (gasp) raise revenue from the wealthy to help solve our debt problem.

THEN, I see today on the same website that a Mr. Dave Coves (Honeywell CEO) is telling the American people we must address Medicare and Medicaid.

Mr. Obama has lost little time in rolling out his cavalcade of business heavy weights so they could give him cover to begin the destruction of our so-called entitlement programs.

There is a party going on in America tonight, and it's a big one. The champagne and the food are mighty good at this party. It's over at billionaire David Koch's mansion. He's waited a long, long time for his plan to come to fruition.

Load the federal government up with so much debt (Bush Administion..tax cuts for wealthy, multiple wars, Medicare prescription drug program that does not allow govt to bargain for volume discounts) I say so much debt that we have to solve our debt "crisis" by taking it out of the backs of the poor and the middle class.

My hearty congratulations Mr. Koch & Friends. You won.

Koch was the Libertarian Party's vice-presidential candidate in the 1980 presidential election, sharing the party ticket with presidential candidate Ed Clark. The Clark–Koch ticket promising to abolish Social Security, the Federal Reserve Board, welfare, minimum-wage laws, corporate taxes, all price supports and subsidies for agriculture and business, and U.S. Federal agencies including the SEC, EPA, ICC, FTC, OSHA, FBI, CIA, and DOE. (WIKI)

This whole debt crisis is a fraud. It was never about SS, Medicaid, Medicare being broke and therefore unworkable. It was never about unfavorable demographics.

It was about a group of people who were philosophically opposed to these programs from the start, and they were determined to destroy them in their lifetimes; and they had the money to manipulate the public to accomplish their plan.

It's hard to get kicked in the teeth by anyone, Polly. It doesn't feel good. And Mr. Koch and his friends have certainly kicked the poor and the middle class of our country right square in the teeth, and it won't be long before the teeth are all knocked out and lying on the floor.

And they found the perfect charge to deliver the coup de grace. The Democrat, the socialist, some even say the communist: President Barack Obama. No one would have ever expected this guy to deliver the final plunge of the sword to the heart of a poor child out there who receives Medicaid, and who gets to see the doctor so he can stay alive and have a chance to grow up up in America (and maybe be President some day).

I see no reason to wait any longer. Unveil the new dime. The fix is in. The deal is done.

Oh, and of course raise taxes on the rich for a few years. Pretend they are going to help pay this debt. You can always lower them back down again later when this show is over.

Crow, I thought you were taking a trip ... I assume it was a physical trip by car, plane or train But, based on your recent posts, I am now suspicious of what kind of trip it was ... substance induced?

I'm on my way up to David Koch's home to look in the winders at the big party. Maybe they'll throw some cake out the back door and I can taste the good stuff. I'll eat my Thanksgiving Dinner at Popeyes.

It's a grand thing when you can get a multi-millionaire Democrat to do your dirty work for you, and I want to see the smiles around Mr. Koch's table. Of course, I won't trespass. I'll tell him I'm a fan of his and that I just want to look in at the party from his winder and see what he says. He may say ok.

And I do admire him. You'd have to be both slick and patient to pull something this big off.

It seems like the people inside the gated community are itching to interact with the people outside the gated community. They want to get one last look at them before they fade away.

They keep sowing the wind. Sowing the wind. What would we do without our barbarians?


Why this sudden restlessness, this confusion?

(How serious people’s faces have become.)

Why are the streets and squares emptying so rapidly , everyone going home so lost in thought?

           Because night has fallen and the barbarians have not come.
           And some who have just returned from the border say
           there are no barbarians any longer.

And now, what’s going to happen to us without barbarians?

They were, those people, a kind of solution.

Yes, so true. What do you do when you don't have the barbarians outside the gate to kick around any more? There were indeed a kind of solution. I guess the barbarians on the inside of the gated community can feed on themselves now.
