    if you think either sides proposal on the fiscal cliffs is a serious plan to fiscal responsibility, you've got rocks in your head.
    & once again no heads will roll over the bengahzi fiasco with this latest gubment ambigious report.
    like the original 9/11 attack, no cia, state dept, fbi, dod or any other gubment agancy caught with their pants down will suffer repercussions. gubment servants are above reproach when they fuck up & dont do their jobs, just keep collecting those high salaries & benies while you run this country into the ground. hillary & the media darling are the first to sound off with the very hollow, the buck stops here routine:rolleye: which means absolutley nothing except that heads wont roll. they think we're stupid & we are. soooo, gubment as usual, everyones secure & happy & budgets right on track...zipedy dooda

    Third. Consummation of the American Empire

    “The third and largest of the paintings is The Consummation of Empire. Now, the landscape is covered by a magnificent marble entrepôt, and the contented farmer-philosophers of the previous tableau have been replaced by a throng of opulently clad merchants, proconsuls, and citizen-consumers. It is midday in the life cycle.” The Consummation of Empire focuses us on Ferguson’s core message: At the very peak of their power, affluence and glory, leaders arise, run amok with imperial visions and sabotage themselves, their people and their nation. They have it all. But more-is-not enough as greed, arrogance and a thirst for power consume them. Back in the early days of the Iraq war, Kevin Phillips, political historian and former Nixon strategist, also captured this inevitable tendency in Wealth and Democracy:

    “Most great nations, at the peak of their economic power, become arrogant and wage great world wars at great cost, wasting vast resources, taking on huge debt, and ultimately burning themselves out.” We sense the “consummation” of the American Empire occurred with the leadership handoff from Clinton to Bush. Unfortunately that peak is behind us: Clinton, Bush, Paulson, Bernanke, Palin, Obama, Romney and all future American leaders are merely playing their parts in the greatest of all historical dramas, repeating but never fully grasping the lessons of history in their insatiable drive for “economic progress,” to recapture former glory … while unwittingly pushing our Empire to the edge, into collapse.

    Four. Destruction of the Empire
    “Then comes Destruction,” the fourth stage in Ferguson’s grand drama about the life-cycle of all empires. In Destruction “the city is ablaze, its citizens fleeing an invading horde that rapes and pillages beneath a brooding evening sky.” Elsewhere in The War of the World, Ferguson described the 20th century as “the bloodiest in history, one hundred years of butchery.” Today’s high-tech relentless news cycle, suggests that our 21st century world is a far bloody return to savagery.

    At this point, investors are asking themselves: How can I prepare for the destruction and collapse of the American Empire? There is no solution in the Cole-Ferguson scenario, only an acceptance of fate, of destiny, of history’s inevitable cycles. But there is one in Wealth, War and Wisdom by hedge fund manager Barton Biggs, Morgan Stanley’s former chief global strategist who warns us of the “possibility of a breakdown of the civilized infrastructure,” advising us to buy a farm in the mounains. “Your safe haven must be self-sufficient and capable of growing some kind of food … well-stocked with seed, fertilizer, canned food, wine, medicine, clothes, etc. Think Swiss Family Robinson.” And when they come looting, fire “a few rounds over the approaching brigands’ heads.”

    Why does Boehner always look like he's crying?

    [​IMG]

    Plus he likes to blame Obama for not compromising when it is HE who won't budge.

    Republican House Speaker John Boehner warned President Barack Obama on Wednesday that he can either accept a GOP alternative to a comprehensive “fiscal cliff†compromise or “be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history.â€

    lol

    And he's using Democrat talking points now. Balanced approach...lol Yet he refuses to raise taxes on the rich.

    “I hope the president will get serious soon about providing, and working with us on, a balanced approach,†Boehner told reporters in a brief public appearance at which he took no questions.

    His idea of a balanced approach and compromise is to raise taxes on those earning 1 mil. :funny:

    The verbal hardball tactics came one day before the Republican-led House of Representative was to vote on the speaker’s “Plan B," which would extend Bush-era tax cuts on income up to $1 million but would raise tax rates above that.

    It's simple. Let the Bush era tax cuts expire. They're not helping the country.

    It seems like we'll have to pry those tax cuts from Boehners cold dead hands.

    He won't budge?? His first position was NO TAX RATES INCREASES and spending cuts. His Second position was TAX RATE INCREASES on income over a million ( They same EXACT PLAN that Nancy Pelosi proposed this summer) and he is willing to wait on the spending cuts until after the new year, how can you say that he won't budge???

    The Bush Tax cuts became the Obama tax cuts hen HE SIGNED THE EXTENSION two years ago.
    I hope we go over the cliff and crash and burn. Tax increases can not and will not solve or deficit problem, we need massive spending cuts, tax increases and growth and until we get all three of these things we will continue to run deficits.

    The boner and the Obama plan raise about 2-3 trillion in new cuts and new revenue over ten years. We are running a TRILLION DOLLARS DEFICIT EVERY YEAR so in ten years instead of adding 10 TRILLION TO OUR DEBT WE WILL ONLY BE ADDING 7 TRILLION.
    We are fucked no matter whose plan they finally agree to.
