"Fiscal Cliff" and "Grand Bargain" are all a big lie!
I feel like a broken record going on and on about Shock Doctrine, but it explains so much. It's all about money - getting more money to the 1% Everything that happens, from the wars we are and have been in, to school issues, to Hostess, to this "fiscal cliff" talk, is all explained by Shock Doctrine.
The "Fiscal Cliff" is not a cliff and the language itself is intended to scare people. The name itself is designed to create panic, evoking disaster imagery of people and the economy falling off a cliff. It is the latest manufactured "crisis" and we are all supposed to be terrified and demand immediate and extreme solutions.
Again, the very people screaming loudest about deficits are the people who passed tax cut after tax cut, and military spending increase after military spending increase, and started war after war. Then these same "serious people" terrify the public, telling them that budget deficits will lead to the destruction of the country — and soon. After a decade of screaming “9/11,” “9/11,” noun verb “9/11,” they screamed "deficit, deficit, deficit." Now they scream, "fiscal cliff, fiscal cliff, fiscal cliff."
Then after the public is suitably stirred up and terrified they offer “solutions” they say are necessary to cut the scary deficit (that they caused, for this purpose).
And the fixing all has to happen right now, in the "lame duck" Congress, before those new legislators We, the People elected can take office.
GO to the link, read the whole thing, watch the movie Shock Doctrine (google it) and read the book! We need to be educated and educate others so we see through this.
Edited to add link! (oops)
