Breaking News – Consumers Now Required To Seek Treasury Department Approval On All Purchases Over $50

Disappointed with the way the nation has been managing its money, the Treasury Department announced Wednesday it had begun requiring citizens to seek government approval on all purchases over $50. “It’s not that we don’t trust people, but right now we’re not seeing a lot of evidence suggesting they’re capable of making these decisions on their own.”

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said of the law requiring consumers to fill out a form at the point-of-sale listing the desired item, the total estimated cost, and the reason why they need it and why they need it now.

“If, for example, you are a 32-year-old woman deep in credit card debt, we are going to need a compelling reason as to why you need a vintage rotary phone from Anthropologie.”

At press time, the department had denied Cleveland resident Jim Barnes’ purchase of a Buffalo Springfield box set that he already had on cassette.

Congress

“A new poll shows that disapproval of Congress is at an all-time high.

Eighty-two percent of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing and the other 18 percent weren’t home when the question was asked.”

(2 of 2) McCain gets hammered from the left

Via: Think Progress

An overflowing town hall in Tuscon, Arizona quickly turned hostile yesterday when constituents confronted Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on a range of issues from the debt ceiling deal to the war in Afghanistan. The event got off to a rocky start when many residents were turned away at the door because the room was not large enough. As McCain entered, he was greeted by sustained chanting of “Where are the jobs?”

“WHERE ARE THE JOBS?”

“WHERE ARE THE JOBS?”

“WHERE ARE THE JOBS?”

~~~

One constituent demanded to know why McCain won’t support higher taxes on the wealthy.

A chorus of “no’s” greeted McCain’s response of “I think we all want to be rich.” (see photo)

“We have a group of people who don’t want to be rich. That’s fine,” said McCain. (see photo)

Taxes on the wealthy, it’s actually no longer the LEFT, but the MAJORITY.

A new CNN poll finds that 63 PERCENT of AMERICANS want the fiscal super committee to raise the taxes on wealthy individuals and business.

(1 of 2) McCain gets hammered from the right, and then . . .

Via: Arizona Central

Kelly Townsend, a Gilbert resident and member of the Greater Phoenix Tea  Party, DEMANDED that McCain apologize for a comment made last month on the  Senate floor about “tea party hobbits.”

The remark came during the heated debt-ceiling debate when McCain was reading  from a Wall Street Journal editorial.

“What I’m here to do is ask you for your apology . . . because that was very  clumsy of you,” Townsend said, adding that many tea-party followers were  offended by the comment.

At first, McCain became defensive. “Is there anything wrong that I said?”  McCain asked. “I don’t know what to apologize for.”

McCain explained he was reading from a Wall Street Journal editorial,  and he meant the notion of passing a balanced-budget amendment now is fantasy,  like hobbits.

“I’m sorry if it was misunderstood,” McCain said. “I’m not sorry for what I  said. I mean, why should I when it’s the fact?”

~~~

Tea-party activists called McCain “out of touch” when the senator said he  didn’t know about United Nations “Agenda 21.”One man described the initiative as  a “takeover of the United States of America by taking over our farms.”

“First, our firearms, then our farms,” another man added.
