Well, the big news of the day is the “fiscal cliff” negotiations. Despite the crushing national debt, the Democrats know that their majority will disappear as soon as they stop buying votes–so the best that has been done is to move the ‘fiscal cliff’ two months forward. In typical Progressivist fashion, CBS is reporting that the current two-month extension our national crisis will “add $600 billion to the national coffers”–by increasing taxes on those earning more than $450,000 per annum. Personally, if I were in that group, I’d emmigrate.
There really is no hope of relief for at least two years. The only hope left for our nation is that the Tea Party Congressmen already elected continue their fight, and take a super-majority in the next Congressional election. If we haven’t been foreclosed on by China by that time.
