As we enter this bright new year, we should pause to reflect upon the debt of gratitude we owe to our fearless leaders who have worked tirelessly and selflessly in the face of insurmountable odds. Though it took all the grit, determination and self-sacrifice they could muster they have come together for the betterment of our great nation. Together. Together we shall all share in a better tomorrow.

shut up about this cliff stuff. so rich people will pay more taxes and there will be less money to buy unnecessary $50,000,000 winnebagos., so what. even if you do care, which is perfectly reasonable really, stop calling it 'falling off the cliff' or shiat like that. there's only one person in the world who's qualified to complain about falling off of cliff, and that's phylicia rashad.

You do realize that much of the new debt is owed to US Citizens, yes? This idea that we're talking about a household budget is silly... we don't need to reduce the level of discourse to something more easily comprehended, we need to get smart enough to follow complex issues.


Yeah, we also have to remember that people never take second jobs when they're in that much debt.

Damn it! You mean we have to put up with this useless, meaningless, political BS all over again in two more months? How are congress so scientifical when it comes to getting elected, yet completely idiot when it come to something like the national budget. Argh!


The national debt doesn't get a vote. It also doesn't get upset about two guys kissing or the writing of pre-scientific cultures that believed in a sky wizard living in the clouds.

StoPPeRmobile: bulldg4life: Interesting. They actually permanently changed the AMT.

And, it looks like they implemented half of the desired high income tax changes with an expectation to phase in the 250k level.

Also, capital gains on rich people.

Surprised at the long extensions for some of the credits.

RminusQ: Mrtraveler01: What was the response when you told them that?

/just curious

I believe it was something like "Well, yeah, but..." or "That's not the point."

I try not to engage my older family on politics because several of my older siblings and both my parents are conservative. My parents actually subscribe to Imprimis, some nutjob right-wing newsletter. The issue I saw laying around had a cover story of "What Public Unions Are Doing To Our Country" that began by the author describing his experiences as (and I'm putting this in quote marks because it is an actual direct farking quote) a resident of "the People's Republic of New Jerseystan". So with conservative family members (ironically my brother the Catholic priest is closer to the liberal side than the other of the older siblings), and me getting into a rage on political matters quickly... I try to avoid it.


It's the GOP motto... if you wanna be a surly, intransigent, entitled, spoiled, lazy, good-for-nothing, overpaid jackass... you could join a union, but it's probably easier to just join the House GOP Caucus.

He can't even breathe without somebody shiatting himself in hatred and fear over it. Wouldn't have mattered how he handled this. The right swore to do anything to defeat their self-proclaimed nemesis, and they're damn well gonna do it, even if they have to destroy America itself in the process.

Issue is not complex.

We are spending a trillion or more a year that we do not have, we borrow to cover it.
We owe over 16 trillion and claiming.
Interest on the debt alone will approach 500 billion a year by the time the Messiah is done with us.
We would have to have at least a 500 billion dollar surplus to begin to pay down the 20 trillion (by the time the Holy One is done) debt.

Bottom line is, we are screwed unless we make severe cuts, and broaden the tax base. Taxing the rich won't even make a dent and will hurt growth.


Too bad nobody gave a shiat about the debt before he took over.

Nope, because you see, this 47%, they feel like they're entitled to see their children on a daily basis, to sleep six hours a day, and to end up with more money after working than a chinese slave being beaten with electric cables for 36 hours straight, and there's nothing Mitt Romney could say to change their mind and make them more bootstrappy.

Government is like sharing a sleeping bag with a porcupine that sleeps near your crotch.

In general the less it moves, the better, but when it HAS to move ideally it should move so as to not stab your penis.
