Sarah Palin Replete with the 'Daily Dumb-down'.

I am certain you have seen it. 

There are times when one has to archive material for future reference.  Archiving for me not only includes maintaining a written or visual record of information or materiel, it also includes storing the material in a part of the human brain.  

Sarah Palin has again come-forth from her twitting cave to spew unintelligent blabber and her face across U.S and International airways.  Her current revised tour (If it is a true tour) is for purpose of remaining in the public eye, not for purposes related to U.S. Politics.  Palin has found the formula of renewing her marketability via infrequent personal appearances that seem to excite the herd of minions who follow her every move. Well, she has provided her minions another injection of completely idiotic and uneducated blabber.

Emotionalism and Lies

A few days have passed and the soliloquy continues from the RIGHT regarding President Obama's alleged lies about catastrophe if a debt ceiling/deficit deal is not reached. 

Sarah Palin  Twits about 'lies'. What a sad state of affairs that one who collects millions from her minions, resorts to such a mediocre media for delivering messages.  When she is not Twitting she sits with Mr. 'facilitation' interviewer Hannity for rambling diatribes that only she and her minions can understand. I suppose that Hannity understands but I suspect he uses his air-time with Palin counting his millions in the background of his brain.
I often wonder why people like Hannity do not ask Palin on what basis does she base her drivel. What economist does she consult?  Who on the HILL does she call for inside perspective?  Ultimately it would be nice if someone just asked if she makes up stuff.

Michelle Bachmann, the Rambling Wreck.  "Obama is trying to frighten you".  On what basis can she layout how the nation can pay debts 'off the interest', and 'they can use the taxes that we pay, pay-check to paycheck."

Joe Walsh, The Mouthpiece with a twist of racist, calls the President a liar but offers no real solutions or quotes any credible authority regarding his reason for labeling Obama a "Liar". But, of course, if one can declare the Obama's win in 2008 the fault of 'white guilt', I suppose one can redord any sort of cheap video and You Tube the work.

While the RIGHT is full of talking heads who claim failing to raise the debt ceiling is mere fantasy vs catastrophe, I have listed the most ridiculous and, sorry to go here, the least mental of the bunch.  Those who know better have shut-off the rhetoric and appear to be working on a solution.  Of course, I have little regard for their contribution to the solution as I am certain it will  benefit the nation's wealthy.  They are, however, working vs. continuing to spew ignorance in the form of financial collapse denial.  They offer such denials as consistently as they offer denials of Evolution.  Also, note that each of the mouthy-three are "Tea Party" People!!!!!

OK, so much for the inane and the babbling of the mouthy fools.  I have listed below exerts form an article posted on the HufftingPost website. You will notice that I have also posted the link for a more detailed review of the information.


U.S. Default Would Likely Cause Stocks, Bonds, Dollar To Collapse 

 A few exerts to contemplate while RIGHT-WING ignorance and obstructionist exudes.

Exerts start now.
NEW YORK -- Time is running out for Washington to raise the country's borrowing limit and avoid a default. Wall Street isn't panicking yet. But if the unthinkable happens, a default could strike financial markets like an earthquake......
What might markets look like after a default?
There's wide agreement among economists that a default would drive up borrowing costs for everybody. U.S. Treasury yields act like a floor for other lending rates, so raising them makes it more expensive for Americans to take out mortgages, for corporations to finance new spending and for local governments to borrow......
"If I were to draw a flow chart, it becomes so complex it's impossible to analyze the impact of a default," said Guy LaBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott.....

When pressed, investors say the immediate aftermath could look like the financial crisis in September 2008. Stocks would lead the way down. In the month following Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy, for instance, the Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 28 percent......
A deeper fear is that a default could freeze the short-term lending markets that keep money moving throughout the global financial system. Treasury's and other government-backed debt are widely as used collateral for loans in these markets......
But the fallout from a U.S. default could be much worse.

"I don't even want to think of the ripple effects," Briggs said.
Indeed, most analysts agree that if the world's largest economy reneges on its debts, the consequences would be catastrophic.......

"He should not frighten our Elderly"

Just as I decided to call it a day and move on to a few other pressing matters, I remembered a flash back from last evening. I was running through a few cable network channels and ran across what appeared to be a heated but relatively civil conversation on the Hannity Show. Yes, I know, I opened my mind up, for but a brief moment or two, to the 'brain cell killing' and inane Hannity Show. 

I will admit that I do not know the origin of the panel discussion but upon my electronic arrival, the panel was discussing the President's interview on with Scott Paley of 60 Minutes.  I could not locate the discussion on the FOX News website. I did see a plethora of  books ads by various RIGHT-Wing 'darlings' on the Hannity page. 

During the broadcast Hannity was using his typical closed pointed hands technique to attempt to lecture a female guest.  The guest must have commented about the President's interview with Paley prior to my hitting the channel. Hannity commented that he had a problem with the President 'scaring our elderly". I can only assume that he was talking about the President's frank remarks that he could not rest assured that the nation would fulfill its obligations to have checks in the mail to social security recipients on Aug. 3, if the debt ceiling was not raised and all financial business came to a halt.

When the President speaks the truth he is criticized. He did not specifically state that the checks would be be cut and mailed (or deposited). He carefully indicated that he could not say with full assurance that those payments could be met.  So, Hannity pulled the typical Fox News (we hate the man and he cannot do anything correctly in our opinion). If he did not answer or was evasive in answering, he would also be criticized.

Before I go on, please allow me  to present and examples of just how hypocritical and flat phony the GOP handles political propaganda.  I will move away form Hannity to more descriptive examples of RIGHT-WING hypocrisy and propaganda.

John McCain of Sarah Palin fame and of the 'illegal immigrants are setting the Arizona fires' fame, visited Van Sustren to discuss the Debt Ceiling fiasco.  McCain somewhere in the five minutes mentioned that )paraphrased) '..that we really should not be frightening our elderly".  Note the coincidental (I hope) likeness of the argument from McCain. It is very much like that of Hannity

(No need to view the entire 5 minutes as it is the same ol stuff from the RIGHT)

Exhibit V.

Fox News personalities advance Palin's "death panel" claim
August 10, 2009 6:58 pm ET
In a Facebook posting, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin claimed that under Democratic health care reform, "Obama's 'death panel' " would "decide" whether her parents or her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, were "worthy of health care." Since then, several Fox News anchors, hosts, and contributors have adopted Palin's "death panel" term or advanced or expressed support for her assertion -- which is based on the widely debunked claim that the House health care reform bill would require end-of-life counseling -- while others have termed it "crazy" or "over the top."


Despite Palin's early lie related to her son, many in the GOP and millions of conservatives extrapolated to the obnoxious  "Killing Grandma" mantra.
