    really stupid sometimes.

    Fuck meeting the Republicans half way. Make them meet him three quarters of the way. Or at least two thirds given that Democrats control two thirds of the federal government... and frankly if it wasn't for gerrymandering... would control three thirds.

    We beat them.

    We beat them for the White House.

    We beat them for the Senate.

    We got over a million more votes for the House then they did.

    The American People voted for the Democratic party to control the agenda.

    Control the damn agenda already.

      This "fiscal cliff" is just one of many manufactured crisis' the Republicans (and some Democrats) are using to drain more wealth from the middle class. Wall Street and their puppets in Congress have been hard at work dreaming of Social Security's trillions in their pockets. They crushed the housing market and looted everyone's pensions and investment portfolios. SS is the last huge nest egg to take from the working class. We have subsidized Big Pharma with Medicare Part D and ObamaCare. We have auto, home, life, liability and medical insurance, etc. Our lives are in the balance with insurance payments we can't afford. Overextended credit and mortgages have everyone indentured to some bank or corporation. Don't you dare miss a payment or you live under the overpass. 40 hour work weeks turn into 50 hours without overtime. Don't you dare take off on vacation or for a holiday or you're fired. Wages are on the decline along with organized labor. Our life savings and future are being peeled away like an onion. The existence of our economy is in the hands of millionaires who already have a golden parachute or an exit strategy. We need jobs and need to stop worrying about the deficit. Listen to Bruce Bartlett and Yves Smith on the Bill Moyers Show. They have it right. We will be better of long term. We wonder why people with a tenuous grip on reality and access to personal weapons of mass destruction go off the rails. Happy Holidays because it gets better if we go cliff diving.
