    •  Oh heavens yes. (5+ / 0-)

      The huge defence contractors in FW (Lockheed, Bell Helicopter) weretelling the local papers that the cliff was indeed a speed bump last week. Considering the massive costs of their programs (JSF, F-35, V-22), it's a good thing that hardly anyone squalled when the Republicans gerrymandered the congressional districts to give themselves a permanent majority. The Democrats can look innocent while the Republicans make sure that all those projects are safely funded, no matter what.
