    that Wall Street wields tremendous influence in Washington, you're suggesting the whole thing has been an orchestrated theatrical production tantamount to a conspiracy.  You might be right, of course, but I don't see real evidence of this beyond speculation.  I do think that negotiations were conducted by both sides with an eye towards what was possible to pass Congress.  As to what the House GOP might accept, Boehner demonstrated epic misjudgment in this regard.

    Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.

      that with money comes power.  And that when men are elected to certain offices of power, they are given a choice.  Take the money and vote, or have your families threatened.  Money can make a person disapear.  

      The higher the office, the greater the threat to your loved ones.

      95% of all life forms that once existed on earth are now extinct. It is only a matter of time until the Republicans follow suit.
