How Dumbasses Enable The Jackasses.......
Here's another way that the Dumbasses enable the Jackasses.

Governor Chris Christie on less government:

Slate Wrote:“We don’t have an income inequality problem, we have an opportunity problem in this country because government's trying to control the free market," he said. And he urged his fellow conservatives to shout their opposition to government regulations from the rooftops. “We need to talk about the fact that we’re for a free-market society that allows your effort and your ingenuity to determine your success, not the cold, hard hand of government determining winners and losers.”]

So what does Christie do? He stops Tesla from selling directly to consumers.
"The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations." `Thomas Jefferson

First of all, he's not a "Free-Market Cheerleader" Robert. He's a Big Government Dumbass, who thinks he can get the DOP base stimulated by pretending to be a manly sort of person. But actions really speak louder than words in the end.

As for Tesla, he clearly has a case of the ass with them. Don't know what though. But Tesla didn't start out playing the 'Free Market' game either. They gladly participated in the hand outs from the Collectivist-in-Chief, so I wonder why they are all up in arms when they meet another Statist working a lesser form of magic? S5

Yes, the law is restrictive, and to me it makes dubious sense at the expense of the free market.

Tesla Motors would be the exception to the rule that says middlemen reduce costs and increase profit. How they can have a business plane that cuts out middlemen yet still makes it somehow easier and more profitable to sell door-to-door defies logic. I assume that the dealership method somehow discourages sales, but why that is, is obscure. The business plan for Tesla Motors (the one that was published) proclaimed the high-end sports car approach was done to build a brand name - and then to market lower-priced models sold in quantity. The 60 mph in 4 seconds roadster was never meant to be their money-maker.

Dumbasses, along with their Jackass allies, do an end run around their real enemies once again.

We can only hope that the RINO leadership will be striped of their roles after midterms.

I've used to saying that same thing, for some years gone by. And the result is almost always the same, time after time. Its so bad I even refuse to use one of my favorite sayings, "Doveryai, No Proveryai" when discussing any trust of the DOP leadership. The ONLY solution is to get them Whigged Out of existence. And the longer we wait, the harder it is going to be to straighten things back out.

When I started out on this, some years ago, I was only one of a very few preaching it. Now there are too many to count, and its only growing larger by every little event such as this one. These people are not the slightest bit interested in your liberties, or mine either. And you can't cut out the malignancy, without killing the creep. I just wish more people could suddenly 'get it', and put this critter down for all time.

It's hard to let go of such things for some people, especially if they have believed in the GOP for decades on end.

The end of the GOP will come when generations 40+ die off. Till then, it will slowly and inexorably creep towards death.

blog.heritage.org April 8th 2014 Wrote:Conservatives Vent on House Vote for Medicare 'Doc Fix' [VIDEO]



House conservatives were put off by leadership’s hastily scrambled voice vote to prevent deep cuts in reimbursement to physicians who treat Medicare patients, several lawmakers said today. Speaking at The Foundry’s monthly Conversations with Conservatives panel, Republican members of the House of Representatives argued that their leadership had promised them a floor vote on a bill that extended the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula in Medicare for 12 months.

The extension, known as a “doc fix,” avoided a 24 percent cut in payments to Medicare physicians, which would have put seniors at risk for limited access to care. But rather than conducting a roll-call vote last month after the time allotted for debate, the presiding member executed a voice vote that occurred in seconds.

“I can’t think of a time where I felt that my trust had been more violated since I’ve been here, and that’s pretty stiff competition if you stop to think about it,” said Rep. Rick Mulvaney (R-S.C.). “The negative reaction goes well beyond the group of people that you see here.”

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) accused House leadership of being in on the voice vote to meet a final agreement with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “They hid that vote,” Huelskamp said. “They didn’t do that on behalf of us.”

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) said the move was a blow to a Congress that has struggled to gain trust with the American public. “That move was very disappointing for, I think, the majority of us,” he said.

Mulvaney said members have asked House leaders to pay for the “doc fix” and provide assurances that quick voice votes won’t be used for difficult bills. “We’ll give them time to do that, but it has to be done,” he said.

House leadership and a couple of dozen others knew about the vote leaving hundreds others in the dark. The GOP leadership must go. These BS voice votes are announced, issued and result declared in the same breath. It is a sham.

I believe that is how both wings of the Big Government Party operate. Anyone disagreeing with this action, even if 'officially' a member of one of those wings, is to be shunned and blocked at every opportunity.

The difference between you and me Paul, is that I have already realized that change from within any of these two wings, is futile.

Remarkable how two political parties can change decade after decade then suddenly freeze in time, never to change again. I never would have picked that up. S13

Yeah, and they Both need to be scraped too.

I'm hoping that when all this economic catastrophe hits hard, there will be several constitutional amendments passed, including one to make it much harder for one major ideology to control both party branches.

I can tell that the DOP Big Government Establishment is still alive and well.

Quote: Ed Gillespie, former adviser to President George W. Bush and presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate Saturday and will face Democratic Sen. Mark Warner in the general election in November.

“I will take our fight to Mark Warner, I will lead us to victory in the fall and we can turn our great country around again,” Gillespie said.

Yep, from one branch of the Big Government Party to the other one. That makes sense. Everyone gets to rule the peons.

Making a rare Capitol Hill appearance, Gov. Christie on Monday encouraged the GOP's newest members of Congress to embrace compromise and common ground as they shift to a governing role following their party's midterm rout.

In other words, go along with the Dumbass leadership, and you just may get some good committee positions. Go along to get along, right? Otherwise..................................

I dunno John L -

perhaps it is proper to say "embrace common ground and compromise" since that sounds politically correct while one then goes about showing how the opposing Party constantly blocks progress.

Is that now what the Democrats have been doing/saying during the Obama Administration?
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Ahh, but that is an entirely different set of circumstances JW. No matter what Jackasses do, they are naturally going to be forgiven what they do, by the Whores. They are still going to be invited to the best parties, praised by the elites, etc.

But Dumbasses? They have to treat others differently if they are going to be liked by the elites. So they do just that. They never attain any respect, but they do get to go to the best parties in DC. To them its worth being stepped on, and treated as second class citizens. And they still get to come in through the front door for their actions. S5

Perhaps we should return power back to the individual states? Of course that would make things harder for the Whores and elites, wouldn't it?

Is the current congress the old or new one? Cause there is continuance of the pay to play American economic paradigm in this latest effort.

January 3, 2015 should be the start of the new Congress. Congress then will have a majority of 246 Republicans in the House of Representatives (218 is a majority in the House), and 54 Republican senators (51 is a majority in the Senate). Also, "The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) said Thursday the GOP now controls 69 [state] legislative chambers, 32 lieutenant governorships, and 29 secretaries of state."

"Before last night, the all-time Republican high was 64 chambers in 1920."

There will also be 31 Republican governors, and only 17 Democratoid governors. Plus one independent governor, and one "undecided."

I think it is reasonable to say that the Democratic Party is suffering under decided national rebuke.

Ron, I believe it is safe to say that Dumbasses are not far behind. This morning I was channel surfing, in the basement shop. I was trying to find something good on Science or History, but somehow my remote had Fox Business set as the alternate channel. So I wound up there, looking at the Sicilian (Maria Bartiromo) in all her warpaint. Ugh! frightening!

I was about to change channels, so as not to become ill, when the guest there came into view. It was my favorite political sex symbol, Monica Crowley, and all my haste to depart was forgotten. The interview was coming to a close, and Monica looked as the camera as she reminded everyone that this congress(i.e., The House) was keeping the funding for Obamacare in the upcoming bill, in spite of what the keep assuring the willingly duped. And she looked straight into the camera, which spoke volumes as to her own trust in her party.

Now, what were you saying about how YOUR party is going to fulfill their assurances to all their trusting, caring, and dependent herd? How much longer are you going to be willing to be a DOPer?

Part of budget Cronybus bill involves making certain the cats stay mostly herded in both chambers. Lizzy Warren for example is leading a mini-revolt. I'm sure Reid has his wick dipped deeply in this one, but it's not clear how motivated he is to "git er done". Also not certain how tightly Boehner is holding the reins. There's a lot for Dems to hate in this and a lot of nauseated insurgents on the other side .... so it may not be quite as scripted as some of the leadership would hope. It's painfully clear how much shit your face can be smeared with when you don't have time to read the legislation. We'll find out tomorrow. Here's hoping for a big surprise.
