Darrell Issa "Americans must feel pain"

Issa was quoted this morning by CNN just now that, regarding the budget deal, "We all have to sacrifice" "Americans must feel pain". I googled it and couldnt find anything though.

4. Have those that profited the most be the first to sacrifice

like Wall street, bankers, lobbyists, the 1000 military generals living high off the hog, Congressmen/women, every CEO in oil, gas, coal, Walmart owners, Adelson, Romney, Fox's Murdoch......They all came out ahead in the past decade or two.

7. When they talk about "austerity" and "shared sacrifice"

It should be known that their idea of "sharing" is less developed than that of my 3-year-old. They mean that everyone but them sacrifices, everyone but them deals with austerity, while they make profits off this as they do off everything.

19. HEY DARRELL!

2009 I was fired in November. Found enough work that my 2010 earnings were a little over half of my 2009 earnings (which were 5/6 of my 2008 earnings). I was again fired in November of 2010. Found enough work that my 2011 earnings were a little under half of my 2009 earnings. The good news is that I remain employed and 2012 earnings will be a little over half of my 2009 earnings and this will be the first Christmas in 2 years that I have a job. I'm tapped out, savings is gone, driving a 10 year old vehicle, paying 2 different law firm collections agencies settlement payments on loans that were defaulted on so my credit is shit too. At 51 I'm effectively starting over.

With a little luck my 2013 earnings will exceed my 2008 earnings, knock on wood, so I guess I'm one of the lucky ones because there are people who took harder hits than I did.

So you ignorant fuck, get back to me when the top tier is feeling my kind of pain from being taxed.

32. Have you thought of declaring bankruptcy?

I had to declare bankruptcy in 2010 because my mother died (she and I lived together) and her income ceased. I simply could no longer pay the credit card companies since they froze my use of them. I declared bankruptcy which was granted by the court.

I don't have credit now, but I have my condo, my car and a job. It isn't easy but I'm doing OK. I also don't have thousands of dollars to pay off for the rest of my life.

28. 99 percent already are dealing with their pain and sacrifice

It's time for the one percent, corporations and defense to join in the fun and accept their share.

They'd be wise to do it willingly and soon or risk having it done for them.

29. Well let's see

Is he talking about the pain of declaring bankruptcy? The pain of going through the foreclosure process? The pain of being laid off?

I sure as hell have gone through all that pain. The fact that I survived it and have a job and my condo still might make him think I haven't felt enough pain though.

31. does he include himself in this?

Most Americans have already felt pain -- thanks to the policies of Dumbya and a Repuke Congress.

I want Issa and the 1% to feel the pain the rest of us have felt. They have lived high on the hog for way too long and don't even begin to understand the pain felt by the middle-class and poor Americans.

33. Issa, please take the afternoon train to Hell, TODAY.

You worthless piece of fecal matter!

A few weeks ago we had this out of control homeless man in our E.R.
He was brought in for saying something stupid like: "Being dead is better than this" so police had him brought to the E.R. for an evaluation.
It had been raining in biblical fashion the prior two days, this guy was cold,sopping wet, smelly and very angry. he yelled, cursed and screamed that he was sick and tired of the rain, cold and hunger. He has been homeless for two years and he wants to die. He asked for a shower and then to be released...

Is that enough pain for you, you worthless example of a human being? Do you consider yourself a CHRISTIAN? I bet you do.

Do you have any idea how many people are hurting today? I believe the problem is they don't fit into your cosy hate-filled definition of hurt.

AMERICA MUST FEEL THE PAIN ? What??


California Home, Darrell Issa Jewelry, Darrell Issa Robbed, Darrell Issa Vista, Politics News


Burglars broke into Rep. Darrell Issa's (R-Calif.) suburban San Diego home late last month, stealing more than 50 pieces of jewelry worth an estimated $100,000, the North County Times reported on Thursday.

The incident occurred between 6:40 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. on Nov. 29, according to a police report. Though detectives are currently exploring leads, no arrests have yet been made in the case, Jan Caldwell, spokeswoman for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, told the Times.

Issa spokesman Frederick Hill said that the stolen items were "irreplaceable family heirlooms" that the congressman and his family had inherited, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Issa, the former CEO of a car alarm company, is among the wealthiest members of Congress. According to OpenSecrets, he was worth between $195 million and $700 million as of 2010.

How many Americans have a $100,000 worth of jewelry statshed ? fuck him and all his people!

40. Ed Shultz agrees. He just said tonight that the top 2% should be threatened w/42..no 43% tax rate

since they're balking and pissing themselves at the thought of paying 39%.

If the middle class has to feel the burn, so should the upper crust!

Sorry for going OT but Ed just had a fabulous rant that fit this post so well.

44. Don't piddle. Start at 70% and work down from there.

When they talk flight, we talk about ending Pax Americana and 10,000% tariffs.

When they talk about arming up, we remind them of the most powerful military in the history of the world in pure ability to deal damage by a significant margin that will not sit idle as its nation's people face an existential threat being saber rattled.

No more half stepping.
