Super Committee Failure: Fire Them All!

Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog

The not so “Super Committee Failure” ended with a whimper and finger pointing on Monday without so much as cutting a single penny in the bloated federal budget.

Not only that, but these reckless jokers didn’t even bother to negotiate up to the wire to give a deal their best shot.  They just gave up two full days before the deadline.

I guess getting home for Thanksgiving is more important than fixing a country teetering on calamity.

The words “pompous, self-centered, and arrogant” come to mind.  This boneheaded move is classic party politics.  It puts political gain and posturing above the good of the country.  We have no statesmen, just bag men.

I’ll bet members of the Tea Party who voted for $2.4 trillion in more spending a few months back feel sold-out right now.

With tax receipts falling and employment dropping, some predict the $2.4 billion freshly created cash will not last until November 2012.

Yes, there is a very good chance the country will, once again, run out of money.  That alone will be a coming catastrophe because the “spend now, cut later” cards are now all used up.

Long before that, the country will slide into trouble.  Of that, there is no doubt.

Sure, some of the ratings companies have said they won’t cut U.S. credit ratings, but how long is that going to last with mountains of red ink piling up.

why do you bother to follow these charades? These are simply staged acts to portray that someone is doing something about nothing.

And why in the hell would we want to fire them? They are not a legitimate committee anyway.

Americans are no doubt...just like cattle. Less than 5% even know what a super committee is!!!

We should lock Congress in a room with no restroom access and not let anyone out until they do their jobs.

Degeneration and failure is easier and just as profitable if you are a congressman. Plausible deniability set them free.

I love it Anonymous at 9:41 AM ! I saw an episode of Stargate SG-1 where O Neil put these angry leaders of two planets in a cement room with a bowl of fruit under Cheyenne Mountain. They did reach a deal! So there is something to say for this method.

My concern is, the breaking of the oath of office, I think going back, the deeds and actions of all our representatives needs to be compared with time and date and the US Constitution and other laws active on the date of the action. Why so when they BROKE their oath they can be held accountable.

Bottom line is we didn't go from a constitutional republic in a decade to a DHS police state with the constitution nullified. Not even a war has been declared. They just did it. They now just need to be indicted. Perhaps a new law should be introduced which prevents people from breaking their oath. e.g. you can't submit an unconstitutional bill when you swore an oath to protect the constitution. I know some are going to say this is a grey area cause, we are supposed to be able to change the constitution. Well I agree we should be able to change the constitution, but not decimate it in a decade by basically nullifying it from all these new friggin branches of government which keep popping up.

Another problem is COG (Continuity of Government) with COG as law of the land, the people no longer have the right to "Throw Off" corrupt government.
YET corrupt government is exactly what we have protecting itself while they fail to regulate the monetary system, and start a bunch of wars.

That's TERRORISM, domestic terrorism!!!

I think it is not wise for an emperor, or a king, or a president, to come down into the boxing ring, so to speak, and lower the dignity of his office by meddling in the small affairs of private citizens.
