The anarchists on CRAPitol Hill

We all have the carefully constructed vision of what anarchy looks like.  We have allowed ourselves to become convinced that anarchists are wild looking radicals, brandishing guns, riding motorcycles; with their shaven heads and/or long flowing unwashed beards and tattooed women. We have allowed ourselves to be convinced that they are just looking for a reason to overthrow the government of the United States. stupid (Gasp!!) If they don’t fit into this scenario, we are still equally convinced that they (the unknown anarchists) are plotting some kind of violent overthrow and that they hate government in all its forms.  Should all 20 or so actual anarchists ever get together in one spot…….why, there is no telling what will happen!  It will be chaos!  Blood will run in the streets and no one will be safe from these wild-eyed haters of government who want nothing more than to terrorize the rest of us with their lawlessness!

Actually, we do know who the anarchists are.  And they are gathered in one spot and there are far more of them than we ever imagined. More

H.R. 3778: More crap from CRAPitol Hill

In what is clearly another of those actions meant to deceive the public into thinking someone in the District of Criminals is actually trying to accomplish something meaningful, comes this bill regarding raising the debt ceiling.  A cursory read may make you think the intent is to prevent raising the ceiling, thereby preventing an increase in the overall national debt.  We could only hope!  Unfortunately, this bill H.R. 3778, is simply a tactic used to make it appear that (in this particular case) the Republicans are really, really serious about stopping the mindless spending that they themselves have contributed to right along with the Democrats.

Take a closer look.  You’ll see this bill has nothing to do with limiting federal spending.

Washington, D.C. newspaper The Hill is reporting:

“Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) on Wednesday introduced a bill that would prevent Congress from considering an increase in the debt ceiling unless both the House and Senate have approved a concurrent budget resolution, something the Senate has not done in nearly three years.”

Lamborn said his bill would at least require a budget to be in place before these debt ceiling increases can occur.

“Today I have introduced a bill to stop this madness,” he said on the floor. “The Budget Before Borrowing Act,” H.R. 3778, is a straightforward, no-gimmicks approach to spending money. It very simply says that the nation cannot raise the debt ceiling limit unless the House and the Senate have agreed on a budget resolution.” 

Did you catch the “approach to spending money” comment? More
