Fiscal Cliff Nonsense

Published by at 2:40 pm under 2013 Fiscal Cliff,All General Discussions

The Tea Party/Libertarian insurgent voters of 2010 know the best available answer to the stealing of money from future generations is to embrace the so-called fiscal cliff.  All other options are result in more theft and more kick-the-problem-down-the-rode. So far, the best deficit reduction package on the table is the fiscal cliff.

But the Political Industrial Complex (the News Media, Pols and Lobbyists) are all trying to cry “Wolf!” over the cliff dive so they can connive more theft of our children’s futures to line their pockets. They don’t want the cliff to come, because it requires us to pay our way instead of steal from our children  in the form of supposed deficit borrowing. Less for them.

Thus, we get a lot of stupid PR stunts this weekend. Like a bunch of Pols getting together to pretend they are not actually doing nothing – which of course they are. Lots of movement, no progress:

No reporters, no cameras, just five people sitting around a table wasting each other’s time while an excruciatingly bored pundit class waits for smoke signals afterward.

O’s going to come off of his $250K offer and hand the debt-ceiling issue back to the GOP so that we can go through another standoff over spending cuts in the spring? I know how I’d vote on that if I were a Republican legislator. And I know how I’d vote on it if I were a Democratic one.

Our so-called political leadership is still plumbing the depth of their incompetence. This cartoon sums up the true victims of any attempt to avoid fiscal responsibility by avoiding or delaying the ‘fiscal cliff‘ dive.

And of course our crazy-like-a-stuffed-fox Democrats are demonstrating their usual Drama Queen act:

Less than two weeks after one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings, the No.2 Democrat in the U.S. House, Steny Hoyer, compared Republican tactics for dealing with the nation’s debt limit to someone threatening to shoot a child hostage.

Subtle, eh? Of course it is Democrat big-government policies which are stealing our children’s (and their children’s) futures by saddling them with our debts!  Hoyer attempts a little diversion and projection – and comes of looking pretty damn dumb in the process.

Personally, I say go over the cliff – bring on the Clinton tax rates!

    Maybe the ‘fiscal cliff’ is taking on the essence of the ‘Cry Wolf’ parable for me. But, much like AJ is saying about said ‘Cliff,’ I really don’t care whether we go over, if a deal of substance can’t be made ahead of time.

    What ninnies we have in government! Squishes, bumbling idiots, all of them. More invested are they with the ‘politics’ of the cliff than they are with devising any outcome that remotely addresses solving the fiscal problem of this cliff!

    Oh yea, Clinton had growth, it must have been his tax rates. Are these people so STUPID that they actually believe it was his tax rates? We don’t remember cuts in defense, or the .com bubble, or the recession as Bush interred office. Are there no Republicans that can stand up and call the Dems out on the lies. I have had it with government. Let Obama have what he wants and then let him blame himself for the result. I can live with that.

    I seem to remember that the legislation that embraces the horror of the “fiscal cliff” does bear the signature of somebody called … Barack Obama
