Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Don’t be living in the ethereal fantasy world that these guys are actually holding the line for the reasons that you and I hold near and dear. There are obviously other political concerns here. There is the divvying up of the $3.8-trillion-pound pie that’s really what is going on here. Each side is fighting for their slice. There are some in the House of Representin’ that are fighting for the correct causes, I think. Their numbers are small. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: Lou is in Georgia. Hello, Lou, you’re first up today.
Caller Lou: How you doing?
Mike: I’m fine, Lou, thank you. I am well.
Caller Lou: I just want to mention, it was really funny listening to the illegitimate grandchild of Elmer Fudd, Chuck Schumer. It’s amazing how this thing carries on. The longer the government is shut down, the more I applaud. I’m just loving this. I just hope that nothing gets voted on and it keeps going. The longer the debt ceiling is kept at bay, the less that we have. It’s just up to Obama to pass the budget as is and carry on. That’s what I’m hoping for really, as an anarcho-capitalist and lover of Lew Rockwell and Peter Schiff and all those great people. This is a great day for us. I hope we’ve finally drawn the line in the sand. Maybe it’s the start of something. I’m really hoping.
Mike: If you read David Freddoso’s article about Ted Poe, Republican, alleged Tea Party conservative from Texas, you will dissuade yourself of any notion that this is the day you have been waiting for. Guys like Poe are not where your and my mind are, Lou, they’re just not. I’m not telling you to not think the way you’re thinking, I’m just telling you that the realist is going to say that what I just said, about us being the worst generation — even though I believe that and am trying to do my little part in not being a member of the worst generation — that the legislative class around us is most certainly part of the worst generation. Don’t be living in the ethereal fantasy world that these guys are actually holding the line for the reasons that you and I hold near and dear. There are obviously other political concerns here. There is the divvying up of the $3.8-trillion-pound pie that’s really what is going on here. Each side is fighting for their slice. There are some in the House of Representin’ that are fighting for the correct causes, I think. Their numbers are small.
Mike Church Show Transcript – They Love It, They Love It Not – Republicans Need To Pick A Side On Obamacare
Caller Lou: I hope God —
Mike: Maybe their own self-centered motivations, radically autonomous, individual aspirations might, for the moment, coincide with yours, but certainly not for the same reasons. Of course, we also have to consider that according to the public opinion polls, like, for example, LA Times has a story out today “Tea Party Backers At Odds With Majority Of Americans On Debt Limit.” The way I phrased that story in today’s Pile of Prep is “Polls show what some of us already know: The sheeple like their government big, ineffective and generous with OPM and they do not care how many people are grifted for this ritual, alive or soon-to-be-born.” That’s pretty concise, don’t you think? Freddoso writes “Conservatives Hew To Principle When It Doesn’t Matter.”
