          into around here, the sky is falling-- breaking got to write another diary with my poutrage. What's that you say? The tax cuts won't be permanent? Never mind, recycle, rinse and repeat the next poutrage, such as Catfood Commission, the horrors. A commission whose members are coming out and condemning because the 2 chairs wrote the report and excluded them, one of which is a geriatric gaffe prone buffoon without any credibility but now head for the hills. Funny thing is it's folks having a giant cow over a toothless discredited commission that will end up likely having zero impact but they've put up the surrender flag to it, and loudly proclaim Obama's going to foist this crap commission into law on us. What? Never mind, rinse, repeat, recycle, next poutrage please.

          The Great Recession is a happy happy joy joy time to drop your obsolete skills and train for new ones.

    •  And don't take certain polls seriously (5+ / 0-)

      For example this recent AP poll:

      53% say they want to continue the Bush tax cuts for all income levels; 12% would allow them all to expire and 32% would allow tax cuts on income above $250,000 to expire. This 53-44 split is the mirror image of August polling by AP-GfK, which showed a 52-45 split.

      Yes, I find it hard to belive that 53% of this country want to continue the Bush tax cuts for all income levels. I believe the pollsters deliberately confuse people when they ask them questions in a certain way...

      •  If true, it means that 53% don't know (0+ / 0-)

        what it means to extend the tax cuts. They have no idea what the consequences would be.

        When a person signs a legal document without knowing the consequences, that information can be used to declare that person incapacitated. And yet millions of people are rendering an opinion about which they know next to nothing.

        Perhaps to some, it only means that THEY won't have to pay and extra 200 bucks on their taxes. But the significance of the questions in the polls implies that voters understand the wider consequences of their projected decisions.
