1. This is my Grand Bargain:

We go over the effing cliff, erasing all of the Bush tax cuts, even knowing that our taxes will go up $2,000 per year, and in the process, the People's programs (Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Education, Food Stamps,etc) are NOT TOUCHED. I would rather pay the tax than allow those programs to be touched. And then after the new year comes in, jack up the 2%s taxes even more, and cut taxes for the 98%, back to where they are now.

Those programs are not the reason for our country going down the drain, and everyone knows it, even those who are gaming the system. And the reason they are gaming this is SO THEY CAN PRIVATIZE THOSE PROGRAMS!

It's a Grand money-grab Shell Game that's going on, and if you know anything about a shell game, you know that the only winners in the game are the ones moving the shells around and those who are working the crowd.

All we can do is hope and pray that PO does the right thing by the 65 million people who elected him, and even those who voted for Romney, as like it or not, we are all in this big boat together. Go along to get along with those who already have all the money, or do the right thing by the rest of us. That's where we're at.
Please....someone.... talk me down from here!!
