Mike: Patrick Henry said, “I only have one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that’s the lamp of experience.” What experience do you have with Speaker Boehner and with majority leader Cantor and the rest of the decepticons, the people that call themselves conservatives that are a bunch of frauds, what evidence do you have that would make you think they were ever going to hold the line on the debt ceiling? It was never going to happen. You did hear, by the bye, that it was the Republican Caucus that was going: We kind of really like blowing things up in foreign countries and have the NSA spy on our neighbors. We really kind of want the military spending restored. If we do that, I could sign off on it. But that didn’t even happen.
The House voted yesterday to raise the debt ceiling 221-201, 28 Republicans joining 193 Democrats to vote for it. “Speaker Boehner cast a rare vote in favor of the bill.” What do you mean he cast a rare vote in favor of the bill? He voted for the bailout, both times. In case some of you don’t remember or cannot recall, this is the man that went on the House of Representin’ after the first vote failed to bail out the banks and Lehman Brothers and AIG. The first time the bailout vote failed, it was Boehner that went on the floor and cried real tears, not crocodile tears, real tears. Some of you will remember I used to do the impersonation. Finally they got the vote they needed. The thing passed, as I recall, 218 to 216 or something to that effect. Why would you think all of a sudden Congressman Boehner, Representative Boehner had grown fiscal moral turpitude. That just defies all reasoning to me.

Folks, this is cart-and-horse stuff, chicken-and-egg. One has to change before the things you think want to change is the institutions, even the use of language, manners and what have you, culture, in other words. We don’t have a culture. We have an anti-cult, which means we don’t have one. Our cult is the State, by the way. This changes at the level where it most directly affects you. That’s where you have the greatest chance to be an influence, my friend. Screaming at Speaker Boehner, screaming and yelling and threatening retribution at the polls against Boehner and all his buddies, or against Democrats, whoever, this is a Sisyphean endeavor. How many of you know who Sisyphus was? Eric, do you know who Sisyphus was?
Eric: I cannot say I do.
Mike: I bet you do. Who sentenced him to a pit in Hades and told him: You can get out if you can get the boulder. There’s a hill. You have to roll the boulder all the way to the top of that hill. If you get it to the top of that hill, we’ll let you go. For his entire life, all he did was roll that boulder up the hill, only to get three-quarters of the way up and he’d slip and fall and the boulder would roll back down. He is perpetually trying to roll a boulder up a hill. That’s what this endeavor is. It is a Sisyphean endeavor.
