The Fix has got to Start Somewhere

I just couldn't help but laugh yesterday watching all the Dimocrats whining and complaining and bloviating over Senator Jim Bunning's "objections" to more gubment spending.

Bunning's objections at least for now delays jobless benefits for the nation's unemployed and also forces furlough of about 2000 federal workers.

They were really trying to demonize Bunning as cruel and heartless, when in reality all Bunning is doing is trying to make the Dimocrats abide  by the laws they have already created (pay as you go). The Dimocrats want to of course provide the extra benefits but don't want to pay for it. Well we can see how serious the Dimocrats were about PayGo.....it's all a bunch of the usual BS.

"Why now?" Bunning said he's been asked, regarding his objection to the legislation. "Why not now?"

Indeed! Why not now? If not now, when?

I am sorry for those who are unemployed, but the sad truth is that the days of gubment bailout are coming to a close. We just don't have the money. As for the 2000 federal workers, I say show them the door permanently! Let them go find a real job. I'm tired of having to pay for them.

I heard a pundit on Fox yesterday saying that all this unemployment extension was bad anyway, that it tended to exacerbate the problem, that people would wait until the last minute before taking a job they might not otherwise take. Well, I think the last minute has come. If that means you gotta go flip burgers at Wendy's for a while then you gotta do what you gotta do. Time to get off the gubment dole. Time for gubment spending to stop.

Gubner Christie in New Jersey is experiencing the same kind of Demowhining for exactly the same reasons.

I say, lettem whine.


  1. They are demonizing him now, even calling him crazy. You knew it was coming.

    Right Truth

  2. Bunning is being condemned for telling the truth, something that is frowned on in Washington and totally unexceptable in many circles.

  3. "Bunning Capitulates

    By David Kurtz

    Sen. Jim Bunning's one-man filibuster collapsed quickly this evening. Just as Dems were considering making him actually filibuster, a deal was reached for Bunning to drop his filibuster in return for getting Senate votes on certain amendments Bunning favors but which are unlikely to pass. So sounds like a pretty complete capitulation.

    The deal appears to have been engineered in part by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a sign that even the GOP was ready for this tawdry display of the Senate's Republican-fueled dysfunction to end."
