Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - You’re being played.  We’re all being played.  This does absolutely nothing.  It is a game.  Now it’s been made out to be an online internet game.   You may as well have the White House hire a snotty-nosed kid who’s unemployed to create some online shooter game where you can shoot the rich people. “If you shoot one, they get a tax increase.  You shoot them and kill them and they fall from the sky with their golden parachute.”  This is spectacle.  This isn’t governing.  This is spectacle.  This is a circus for crying out loud.

Mike:  I’m sitting in here and I’m cleaning my splatter of the malt liquor off the desk.  I look up and there’s the president in the Rose Garden.  I’m thinking to myself: I don’t recall Obama having a press conference scheduled.  He’s not in the Rose Garden, he’s in the West Wing.  I cue the sound up.  As I cue the sound up, I just happened to tune into the place where he’s giving hashtags out.  Folks, you have to consider this.  We talked about this two days ago, about the specter of the digital world becoming something that you cannot escape, and that They, Big Bro, has accessed everything that you’re doing.  Lo and behold, there is the President of the United States telling people to go -- it wasn’t hashtag y2k.  What was the hashtag?  Roll the digital media file.

President Obama: If we can get a few House Republicans to agree as well, I’ll sign this bill as soon as Congress sends it my way.  I’ve got to repeat, I’ve got a pen. I’m ready to sign it. We really need to get this right. I can only do it with the help of the American people. Tweet using #my2k or email, post it on a member of Congress’s Facebook wall. Do what it takes to communicate a sense of urgency. We don’t have a lot of time here. We have a few weeks to get this thing done.

Mike:  Tweet #my2k.  I missed the setup for this.  What in the Hades is my2k?

Eric:  Supposedly if they don’t get anything passed, middle class families could lose up to $2,000 because they won’t have any tax cut.  Instead of y2k it’s my2k.

Mike:  Isn’t that cute?  Here we have the President of the United States of America instructing the hoi polloi, the citizenry out here, to go to the internet and use this contraption called Twitter and send electronic harassments out to members of the House of Representin’.  If they were all female members of the House of Representin’, somebody would say that this is sexual harassment.  Instead now it’s just Twitter harassment.  The president is asking people to harass others by Tweeting them and posting it on their Facebook walls.  This is what the mighty United States of America has now descended to.  This is us.  This is how we conduct business.  We have a mobocracy, that is plainly obvious.  The president asks the mob to run to their computers and begin doing what it is that they probably do too much of, instead of actually working, and use these social media devices in order to get their points across so that we may conduct business.

How do you think that’s going to look in history?  Just imagine President Jefferson, for example, holding a press conference: We have this newfangled thing called an ink pen.  I want you to take an ink pen -- there’s no comparison to that.  If you wrote that letter, it would have to be delivered.  It wouldn’t get therein time.  Obama can sit out there -- this is a real problem.  Did you hear them laughing?  They’re yucking it up.  You hear them all chuckling in the background.  He was happy.  He was smiling.  [imitating Obama] “We don’t have a lot of time.  Gotta get this done.  Gotta get it done for the American people.”

What is the “what” that has to be done?  The “what” that has to be done is to make sure that those Bush-era tax cuts never expire, make sure the American people don’t suffer a tax increase.  I’m only going to say this to cover all bases and ensure that we spread our collective misery around.  If this is actually a move toward austerity, which it is not, and if we actually are serious about balancing these budgets and not passing these debts onto our children, austerity would mandate that er-body has to sacrifice, er-body has to pay a little more, right?  That would be an austere measure to me.  That would mean that everyone is on the same page, [singing] “We’re all in this together.”  We could have a little high school lose-ical.  That would be an austere move.

What is troubling about this is that 100 percent of the people “benefit” -- that’s all of us, whether we like it or not -- from fiat currency being printed and spent.  I use the term benefit.  Please save your anger.  I know it’s not a benefit.  I only used it in quotation marks.  One hundred percent of the sheeple benefit from this but only 40 percent of them, if you’re to believe the latest numbers, get to pay for it.  Is there something wrong with that?  We are at the stage where the democracy component of our democracy is now posing a mortal threat to private property.  If you can convince enough imbeciles out there that someone else ought to pay for the problem that everyone is ultimately responsible for, then you have an active form of tyranny and that’s exactly what we have.

I saw Christine Romans on the Clinton News Network this morning hectoring Erick Erickson, who by the by needs to be hectored, saying, “Well, the latest in public opinion polls…put it up on the screen, guys.  Right there it shows 65 percent of the American sheeple want a tax increase for those making over $200,000.  Isn’t it time for a tax increase for those making over $200,000?”  Remember the tax increase is specifically to pay off the debt that has been collectively run up in the name of the United States of America, not in the name of the top two percent of the United States of America, not in the name of the top one percent -- I’m not going to bat for the ultra-rich, I’m simply making a point.

You’re being played.  We’re all being played.  This does absolutely nothing.  It is a game.  Now it’s been made out to be an online internet game.  You may as well just have the White House do -- what was the think tank the other day that put the shoot the lame ducks online game out?  You may as well have the White House hire a snotty-nosed kid who’s unemployed to create some online shooter game where you can shoot the rich people.  [imitating Obama] “If you shoot one, they get a tax increase.  You shoot them and kill them and they fall from the sky with their golden parachute.”  This is spectacle.  This isn’t governing.  This is spectacle.  This is a circus for crying out loud.  I am really disturbed by this.  You would think we would have earnest, somber, solemn statesmen that would take this to heart.  You would think we would have citizens that demand that they take it to heart, that they be serious and earnest about it and maybe put a wholehearted effort into actually doing something, and trying to fix it.  Once again, I hold out no hope that this can be fixed.  This just reinforces my hopelessness on the entire matter.
