Gustavo Come Moco

The year was 1969. One of my pre-kinder classmates whose name was Gustavo, always had his fingers up his nose, prospecting for a snack. He quickly gained the moniker: Gustavo-Come-Moco. He immediately ceased to be Gustavo, or Gus, but hence fourth be came Gustavocomemoco (Gustaff-the-booger-eater).

To this day, I have no idea what ever happened to Gustavocomemoco and his dietary habits. But to judge by the picture below, I never would have guessed that his child one day would have the First Lady visit his day-care center.

Random Firings From A Misfiring Random

This morning, I was assaulted with this bit of agit-prop:

Where do I begin to unpack this delusional pack?

At (0:48) He states:

that’s the debate about how to tackle the problem of our deficits and our debt.

Oh I dunno, Let's take this in for perspective: It took from Washington to Reagan to make a $1-T debt. It took from Reagan to Clinton to reach our $5-T debt-point. It took eight years for Bush-43 to rack-up another $5-T. And in your short 30-Month rule, you''ve burnt through another $5-Trillion.

Then at (1:00) he blunders:

It means taking on spending in our domestic programs and our defense programs
We won't fall for those putative cuts that are projected 10-years into the future and are never carried-out by future Congresses. Tip O'Neil snookered Reagan into it. Same thing happened to Bush-41 back in 1990.

Followed at (1:05) by this little gem:

It means addressing the challenges in programs like Medicare so we can strengthen those programs and protect them for future generations.

Oh, like the way you raided $500-Billion out of Medicare in order to Rube-Goldberg your 'Bammy-Care?

On his next breath at (1:08):

And it means taking on spending in the tax code – spending on tax breaks and deductions for the wealthiest Americans.
Spending on the tax code. Since when does the tax code spend? Tax Breaks don't spend, your profligate pork does! And lay-off envy hatred and resentment. They are all negative demonic emotions, used by Socialists to pit one group against the other.

At (1:41) the De-Barred Constitutional Lawyer blurts:

And we agree that we simply cannot afford to default on our national obligations for the first time in our history;
Yes - The State of Illinois Bar summarily took-away his and Michelle's law licenses in 2008. To date, no credible journalist wants to look into it. But you must have done something REALLY bad to be thrown-out as an officer of the court. But I digress. Section 4 of the 14th Amendment to our Constitution reads:

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law... shall not be questioned.

Meaning that come hell or high-water, The U.S. WILL NOT DEFAULT [PERIOD]. And if we do default, it is because you Mr. President, made a unilateral decision to question the validity of public debt against The Constitution that you swore to uphold and defend.

At (1:51) he goes on:

With a recovery that’s still fragile and isn’t producing all the jobs we need, the last thing we can afford is the usual partisan game-playing in Washington
Sure and with your constant attacks on the wealth generators of this country, what else do you expect other than "Growth-less Recoveries" as far as the eye can see. Knock-it-off with YOUR games Mr. President.

Then he has the gall at (2:02):

By getting our fiscal house in order, Congress will be in a stronger position to focus on some of the job-creating measures I’ve already proposed – like putting people to work rebuilding America’s infrastructure, or reforming our patent system so that our innovators and entrepreneurs have a greater incentive to generate new products, or making college more affordable for families.

Translation: When we raise your taxes, we can go on spending some more. And wasn't that the purpose of TARP? To lay pipe, build bridges, roads and sewers? If you didn't piss it all away on your cronies to advance your Socialist agenda, we'd have something to show for it for future generations.

At (2:27):

And businesses that may be holding back because of the uncertainty surrounding the possibility of a default by the U.S. government...
Businesses are holding-back because of all the uncertainty that you've injected into our regulatory and fiscal systems - YOU DOLT! And we will only default only because you yourself will be committing an impeachable offense - SCARE-MONGERER!

I could go on, but this entry is getting too long for my catharsis. There are many other nits to pick on this. Can you add some of your own?
