Oy, I know why the Admin started to talk up FISCAL CLIFF

and why the Rs are pushing it, but folks, it is a fiscal curb... not a cliff. Will the markets react? Yup, will they calm down once things are not as dire as they are making us think it is.. yup.

Will the Dems be in a much stronger position with the New Congress? Yup.

Please, do not fall for the hysteria. And to Graham and the rest. GOOD! We need to raise taxes on the top 2%, that is what we the people voted for. Enough already! Stop protecting the greedy bastards. You will not like it if people finally decide to reach for the pitchforks, not one bit.

For the record, all those noises we hear of strikes... well guess what? That is the beginning of that pitchforks moment, but serious, cliff, not so much.

7. The FICA tax should revert.

It was sold as very temporary. It was bought out by general revenues.

Then it was extended.

Now it's in danger of becoming permanent, unless rates on everybody raise as well. Just let this cut expire.

4. Never was a fiscal cliff,

this garbage was all PR from Wall Street to give them cover. Notice all the SEC investigations and the rising numbers of convictions that are coming. This is all push back against the occupy movement and the working poor of this country. Two weeks ago they started the raid on all of the 401's and defined pensions by jacking certain stocks and bonds that are required holdings under pension rules of governance. This is nothing more than a bait and switch. More wealth transfer to the rich,using all of the rules of the road that Wall Street has carved out.

Our so called unbiased Media,which is owned and controlled by five people,are running a gin and spin mill. Their boy Willard turdded out on them,now it's on to the next part of their agenda. Notice the headlines,and bylines,same crap nothing about what is really going on out in the in the hustings of importance. Many of the wealthy are scared the middle class may again rise and start asking for things that the entitlement class believes are just theirs alone.

5. They are scared shitless of those automatic defense cuts, among other things.

That's what they're working hard to keep "off the table".

This administration has expended a great deal of energy, a great deal of energy into keeping the status quo alive.
