1. So right you are.
Edited on Wed Dec-12-12 11:13 AM by Enthusiast
Millions of American now recognize this fiscal cliff as kabuki theater.

This theater is merely the result of Republicans refusing to raise the debt ceiling. For this "theater" to continue, President Obama and the Democrats must help prop up the illusion. And they embrace it wholeheartedly. Because the actual national goal is to cut medicare, medicaid and social security in the long term while leaving the wealthy and a massive bloated unjustified military to carry on completely unscathed.

How do we know this is the nation goal? Because it is all over every TV channel that spews the tightly controlled official message. The alternative side is never heard from. We watched a similar tightly controlled narrative after 9/11 and leading up to the Iraq War.

Has the national media ever really admitted that the Bush Administration falsified intelligence to justify the invasion of a sovereign nation causing the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands? No they have not. Has the media ever really challenged the official 9/11 story? I don't mean the "conspiracy theories"--as they are characterized. I only mean the utter failure by the Bush Administration to connect the bright neon light multiple warnings as early as May of 2001. Instead Bush is depicted as a hero! Now THAT is was one massaged narrative. Babs was so proud.

"The Powers" hope to similarly pull the wool over the eyes of the American people on these debt negotiations. The President is instrumental in carrying this off.

Any cuts to medicaid, medicare or social security are the direct result of President Obama carrying on the mission of the Powers at the expense of the American people. The sooner we can accept this reality the better we can moderate its effects. In other words, more military cuts, higher taxes on upper incomes and capital gains and fewer cuts to the social safety net. The best thing we can do is to call out the President on this ridiculous theater and his part in it. This is "Only Nixon can go to China" writ large.
